Technology’s come a long way since then, but it still has its limits, and as we find ChatGPT’s, its sheen will dull. Rarely has anything digital proven to be an all-out replacement for the IRL. We can all use Google Earth to virtually travel anywhere in the world—but when we want to see the Colosseum, we still get on plane. We still scream “REPRESENTATIVE” on the phone with Walgreens to be connected to an actual person. We abandoned the Zoom birthday party as soon as we were safely able. Humanity wins every time.
