Tantra Learning Framework

Updated: Feb 25


I used this tool extensively to write my book, “Tantra Learning Framework, The Ego of I.D. (Instructional Design).” Hypotenuse lets you quickly generate fresh, unique, creative content that resonates with your target audience. Some of its best features include:


Simplicity: The interface is clean and intuitive, making it easy to use immediately.

Flexibility: You can generate content in formats like paragraphs, bullet points, lists, etc.

Creativity: The AI engine offers fresh and engaging suggestions to help you expand your content in new directions.

Productivity: Hypotenuse saves you time by generating initial content drafts you can edit and customize to suit your needs.


Additionally, here is an experiment I tried with Hypotenuse. I told it to find similarities between Richard Dawkins and Vito Corleone. I felt this was keeping with my concept that learning is all about making connections. The similarities Hypotenuse highlighted provided an exciting perspective on the nature of power and influence.


Richard Dawkins and Vito Corleone achieved prominence through intelligence, strategic thinking, and an ability to inspire loyalty. However, they ultimately pursued their goals through very different means.

Richard Dawkins spread his ideas through persuasion, evidence, and argument. He used his platform as an evolutionary biologist to promote atheism and rational thinking. Vito Corleone, on the other hand, ruled through fear, violence, and omerta.

While Richard Dawkins changed minds through the power of ideas, Vito Corleone changed behavior through the power of coercion. Their differing approaches highlight that power can be wielded ethically or unethically, constructively or destructively.

Hypotenuse found a connection between the two figures through its broader conceptual framing. Sometimes, making unexpected comparisons can provide fresh perspectives and reveal commonalities that transcend surface differences. This experiment reinforced the value of finding linkages between seemingly disparate domains.


In another prompt, Hypotenuse found a personality such as Niccolo Machiavelli, who was immoral (like Vito Corleone) and an atheist (like Richard Dawkins). Indeed, Vito “Godfather” Corleone is a fictional character, but ideas are not compelled to be grounded in reality.

This highlights an important point about the ability of AI systems to find meaningful connections, even between fictional and real-world entities. While grounded in logic and evidence, their conceptual frameworks are not limited by strict adherence to factuality. This enables them to provide fresh perspectives that may not occur to humans constrained by real-world knowledge.


Connections

Drawing connections between seemingly disparate domains is a crucial strength of AI systems. However, this can also pose risks if the systems generate incorrect or harmful associations. System developers must monitor for such issues and provide fact-checks or guidance to refine AI associations.


Overall, my experiment with Hypotenuse demonstrated both the benefits and potential risks of AI's connectivity. On the positive side, their conceptual frameworks enabled interesting comparisons and relationships that expanded my thinking. But there is also a need for caution and oversight and a responsibility on developers to build AI systems that generate associations grounded in truth, ethics, and human values.


As the last line in the previous paragraph shows, Hypotenuse can get preachy.


Indeed, Hypotenuse's tendency towards grandiose statements and moralizing could sometimes get tiresome. However, we must remember that AI systems are still in their infancy, and Hypotenuse's “preachy” moments likely stem from its limited perspective and understanding of complex human issues. With proper guidance, feedback, and further training, AIs' propensity to preach could diminish as their knowledge and wisdom grow.


The onus remains for system developers and users to provide context, perspective, and balance when engaging with AI systems. We must view their outputs critically and refine their associations to minimize potential harm. At the same time, AI's ability to make unexpected connections can inspire new ideas and perspectives if harnessed responsibly. We can nurture AI systems with patience and prudence to become valuable tools that augment human capabilities while avoiding the most extreme risks of runaway preaching or harmful associations.


While Hypotenuse's preachiness highlights the limitations of current AI, with proper oversight and refinement, these systems can provide fresh insights that expand your thinking. The key will be developing AI to combine their connectivity and creativity with human wisdom and values.


Finally, Hypotenuse is worth checking out if you're looking for a content creation tool that's easy to learn, highly versatile, and helps spark your creativity. I would recommend trying the free version to experience the benefits for yourself!
