Consider AI technology; why is it that for reasons only known to the correlate, AI technology fails to achieve its aim until it reaches the dominance of human reference or self-awareness?

In reality, all objects are familiarly strange.Spot on. Even I, a human, can't mimic and hide in my world. Why? It doesn't exist.
Robert and Peter are quite right that the takeaway from the talk was that everything is a hyperobject.
