I'm not sure what I'm after.

The human global civilization, if there is such a thing, has been running after a never ending growth for decades. If it was about helping poor people to have more decent lives, food, education, health, then it would be a good growth. But no, it looks like it's more about making rich people even more rich. Global warming? Who gives a shit. A virus that can affect anyone, including kings and presidents? Wooow, everybody stops and go home now. See, me being "useful" to this society is not exactly one of my priorities.

But I'm trying to learn a lot from Buddhism and Taoism. Taoism is a lot of things. For example, it is a particular way of doing things. We, here, AI enthusiasts, are probably modern alchemists, with all our experiments and attempts of any kinds. I suspect there are things to learn from Chinese calligraphy that could be applied to coding, and new way to interact with our computers that still deserve to be invented. Because this is what it's all about: our relationship with computers, and by extension, with the world.

Code
procedure live (x, world) {
    while (x.isAlive ()) {
        y := world.getTheMostVulnerableGroupOfLivingBeings ();
        x.tryToHelp (y);
        x.growOlder ();
    }
    return x;
}

There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.
