The “RNA world hypothesis” was what I was taught in my upper level genetics class back in 2004, so unless I am out of the loop and it has been discarded in the 20 years since, it sounds accurate to me

Because 60 has a LOT of factors that can go into it.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15... etc

It's the reason why there are 60 minutes in an hour (and ultimately why there are 60 seconds in a minute, though that's a later development). It's also ultimately why we have 24 hours in a day (they had 12 for daylight hours, which ALSO has a lot of factors, it was eventually doubled).

A lot of time keeping stuff is due to them

Yeah, it was pretty crazy. I was stuck in a traffic jam today that was caused just by the fact that multiple lights were out in a highly populated area. I wasn't affected, thankfully, but some of my family members were

Sounds like an issue you should talk to your psychologist about. I certainly feel no physical sensation when looking at AI art (or any art) beyond "oh this looks good" or "this looks ugly" (if those even count as physical sensations).

It's very weird to have such a visceral feeling of disgust just based on looking at art.

Lol, that's not how AI art works. Are you sure you're in the right place? See that's the problem being in a space like this - you are very likely talking to someone who actually knows how things work.

AI art works by denoising, it isn't a "composite". It isn't "mixing images". It doesn't have images to mix.

Stable Diffusion for example, was trained on 240 terabytes of data - 2.3 billion 512x512 images, and the models are between 2 to 8 gigabytes of data. That means equivalent to about 1-4 bytes of data per image (with a 512x512 image being a bit bigger than 250 kilobytes in total size).

Suffice to say, you cannot compress 250,000 bytes of data into 1-4 bytes of data (mathematically, it is impossible). If that level of compression was possible, that would be the bigger story compared to AI art, because data transmission just got a wholllllllllleeeeeee lot faster, by orders of magnitude.

So yeah, get out of here with that "composite" nonsense. There's no composite. It's literally mathematically impossible for there to be a composite.
