The difference between Artifical Intelligence and real intelligence is recursive thinking. We have the ability to think recursively, which allow us to analyze and understand our environment.

AI is told what to do. It cannot think recursively. It does not make independent decisions with it's information. It misses a key aspect of humanity, a unique personal interpretation of its environment.

That's why more humans are becoming more and more like AI. They just do what they are told and have lost the capability to independently think.

Humans have been doing this for centuries.

Not all humans.

Some humans bang rocks together for fun and discover fire.

Categorically, maybe. But it's definitely never been as simple as "Insert input command, recieve output action"

I feel pretty confident that that is not a new thing.

People (including those of us making this observation probably) have always been dumber than people want to believe.

I'd also point out most of us in my experience only engage recursive thinking sporadically. I'll spend hours thinking about a book, but I don't think about a song for more than a 3-4 minutes it takes to play. I'll bet the farmer down the road is way more introspective about farming than I'll ever be.

Uh, what? Where did you hear this, or did you just make it up?

I thought recursively and came up with my own conclusion.

The human mind exists at the intersection of our bodies and our environment. Maybe we should build AI some bodies so it'll hopefully think like us and we can relate to it.

Not possible because those who build ai don't understand harmonics
