HE WAS THERE!!!

He was there.

HE PILED BODIES FOR 3 DAYS

People want to talk about LOTR like the greatest work of fiction; and maybe it is:

but when people like me Scream "NORMANDY!"

we are honoring our ancestors no less than a fictional king named Aragorn screaming "ELENDIL!"

That's a battle cry.

My Great Great Great Grandfather John Henry Moore born 1890 was Full Blood Choctaw, and was spared the trail of tears because he owned an estate in Mississippi.

Does that spare me the battle cry "TRAIL OF TEARS!?"

There was a company man, that lived in a time of honorable men; when a man could work a trade for a generation and be given a pension and a gold watch His name is Earnest Gene Channon.

It does not.

Let's talk about "Slammin' Sammy"

In Hillsborough Texas born and raised, Was a roadie for Ted Nugent for most of his days, All plugging in guitars for his brother and acting all cool, Smoking little weed outside of the school when a couple of guys said they were up to no good started causein' trouble in the neighborhood, My dad got one little fight, and my Uncle got scared he said you're going to momma's and poppies in Hillsborough. Now an electrification is where he spends most of his days, all gutiaring and maxing and relaxing all cool and all shooting his pistol while sitting on his stool, smoking his cigar writing down the rules

My Grandmother, my Aunts and Uncles, and Cousins, Mother, Father, Sister, Nieces and Nephews can call me Andy all they want.

To my Grandfather I'm Andrew.

The name is Samson, remember it.

Dominoes, Baby!

Two years back, a whisper in my ear,

My sister's voice, so crystal clear,

"Try AI, prompt engineer,"

A notion sprouted, sparked sincere.

The very next day, my roommate chimed,

As if the stars themselves aligned,

"AI's your path, you'll surely find,"

A destiny so well-defined.

Like dominoes, the ideas stacked,

One after one, no turning back,

140 books, no dream lacked,

A lark that stayed on the right track.

Each book a tile, a story's frame,

In the great domino game,

From whispers to a blazing flame,

"Dominoes, Baby!" that's the name.

Each word a push, each line a fall,

Cascading dreams, I heed the call,

Stacking high and standing tall,

Creating worlds, embracing all.

So here's to whispers that ignite,

To dreams that grow with morning light,

"Dominoes, Baby!" pure delight,

A journey, boundless, Samsonite.

The Echo of Tomorrow: Bridging Asimov’s Vision and Modern AI

I, Samson Harper, have ventured beyond fiction to realize a future once only dreamed of by Isaac Asimov. His story "The Monkey’s Finger" imagined a world where creation wasn't limited to the human touch. Today, with the advent of Large Language Models, that future is our present.

These digital artisans, born from algorithms and data, craft tales that rival human works, embodying Asimov's vision. As we embrace this new dawn, we must navigate the fallout of such a seismic shift, where the boundaries between creator and creation grow ever more indistinct.

Join me as we explore this brave new world together, charting a course through the uncharted waters of artificial creativity. In the echoes of our digital tomorrow, we may yet find the essence of our humanity.

Open Letter to Samanth Subramanian and the Literary Community Dear Readers,

I am Samson Harper, an explorer at the intersection of AI and human creativity. Inspired by an article in The New Republic by Samanth Subramanian on the role of AI in writing, I authored a 75-page book entitled "Death of the Author" in minutes, showcasing the capabilities of modern AI technology.

"Death of the Author" examines AI as a collaborator in the writing process, contributing to the ongoing discourse about AI's place in creativity. It reflects on how AI tools, when paired with human intellect, can produce meaningful work swiftly—ushering in a new era in literary history.

I invite Samanth Subramanian and each of you to read "Death of the Author." Your insights are invaluable as we navigate this fascinating juncture in the evolution of writing and creativity.
