Fleeting bubbles

I was talking to my parents, who are tech savvy enough to independently manage their myriad of apps and devices, and casually mentioned chatGPT. They’d never heard of it.

In the tech circles I’m in, LLMs have sucked all the air out of the room. And it’s easy to forget that these bubbles are the outliers, not people like my parents.

In Buddhism, the analogy of bubbles on water is frequently used, and it always means that something is fleeting, soon going to fade away into nothing.
