'Mental Radio' — Upton Sinclair (1930)

Preface by Albert Einstein:

I have read the book of Upton Sinclair with great interest and am convinced that the same deserves the most earnest consideration, not only of the laity, but also of the psychologists by profession. The results of the telepathic experiments carefully and plainly set forth in this book stand surely far beyond those which a nature investigator holds to be thinkable. On the other hand, it is out of the question in the case of so conscientious an observer and writer as Upton Sinclair that he is carrying on a conscious deception of the reading world; his good faith and dependability are not to be doubted. So if somehow the facts here set forth rest not upon telepathy, but upon some unconscious hypnotic influence from person to person, this also would be of high psychological interest. In no case should the psychologically interested circles pass over this book heedlessly.

Res ipsa loquitur.

Suno.ai — 'ChatGPT for Music'


That's how Rolling Stone describes it.

Benedict Evans calls it "a startlingly impressive music generation model."

That's high praise indeed from someone not prone to such superlatives.

Free, the way we like it.
