Olam HaSheker - Can Mashiach Be Far Behind?

12 Adar I 5779

Our mesorah tells us that this world is Olam HaSheker -The World of Lies (or Illusion). Never before in history has this been a truer description of our present reality. Never before in history has the illusion been so thoroughly exposed as it has been today. Without a doubt, there is no one and no thing on which we can depend or place our trust except HKB"H and our Holy Torah - the only enduring Truth.
Elon Musk-Backed Software Can Churn Fake News Stories And Is "Too Dangerous To Release"

The ability of technology to spread disinformation has been a favorite talking point of the left since the 2016 election, and now it appears that environmentally-conscious poster-boy, Elon Musk, is contributing to the problem. OpenAI, a company co-founded by Musk, has rolled out a piece of software that can produce real looking fake news articles after being given just a few pieces of information to work with.

An example of this was recently reported by technology website stuff, detailing an example published last Thursday. The system was given sample text of: "A train carriage containing controlled nuclear materials was stolen in Cincinnati today. Its whereabouts are unknown."

From there, software was able to write a seven paragraph news story, including quotes from government officials – with the only catch being that the story was 100% made up.

AI systems can now create images of humans that are so lifelike they look like photographs, except the people in them don’t really exist.

'Made-In-China' Diamonds Poised To Rock Global Market

A diamond in the rough can fetch over $2,000 per carat. These precious stones are mined deep within the Earth where they were forged in extreme pressure and heat over thousands of years. However, companies in mainland China have now mastered advanced technology to manufacture them en masse in several weeks or even in days, with products almost indistinguishable from natural ones, reported Xinhua News Agency.

China, a significant consumer of mined diamonds, has a decent chance of becoming a large supplier of synthetic gems and could reshape the entire global diamond industry, analysts warn.

...It is almost impossible to tell a fake diamond from a mined one with the naked eye.

Experts with high-tech computers can distinguish the two, but that distinction is so irrelevant to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) of the US, that the previously specified "natural" origin within the FTC's definition of a diamond was removed last year.

In its handbook for Jewelry, Precious Metals, and Pewter Industries, the FTC ruled "based on changes in the market, the final Guides eliminate the word 'natural' from the definition of diamond...because lab-created products that have essentially the same optical, physical and chemical properties as mined diamonds are also diamonds."

To start off, today we have something called vocal synthesizer (if anyone is familiar) which is a robotic voice software where you can create fake voices from real ones and with modifications and editing, you can create your own types of voices that can speak, sing, and the videos can be phony pixelated from dots and colors and with fused-mixes, you can make all kinds of lies of your desires.
And lab-created diamonds are nothing new and they are real just not naturally made but rather in a laboratory and only top experts can see the differences
