John C. Morley: (00:09)
Hi everyone. I'm John C. Morley, the host of the JMOR Tech Talk Show and Inspirations for Your Life.

John C. Morley: (01:01)

Hey guys, it is John C. Morley here, serial entrepreneur. Welcome to the JMOR Tech talk show. I am so happy that you hopped in this evening. I can't believe, ladies and gentlemen, that we are done with Easter. People celebrated Passover Ramadan. And we are on our second, yes, second Friday of April. Where did 2022 go? Where did January go? Where did February go? Where did March go? Pretty soon, we're gonna be in May. All right, we got some amazing things to share with you on Today's Show. We have a special guest coming up later; chat GPT. So we'll be talking with that engine live on the show. All right. So first thing I wanna talk to you about is our QR code. If you are watching the show, you can just take your phone, scan the QR code, touch your links, and you'll get over to my link tree if you're watching. Great. But if you're listening, you can also go to Really do appreciate you taking the time to make us part of your life because we share some great insights to help protect, educate, and entertain you.

All right, let's get right into our first one. The first one is advanced threat attacks with AI. So what's going on with that? Well, we know that AI is changing the landscape to protection, making it harder because things can be generated much easier and without much human power. And so, AI such as chat GPT provides an avenue for threat actors to engineer sophisticated targeted attacks at lightning speeds that can scale. And this is a big problem. You know, it's not surprising that this is happening because when you scale something, you know, it's very easy to add resources, and one person can do this. So the interesting thing is that more than half of all, let's say, awareness levels and what makes people have challenges is phishing attacks. Now, the top three are imitations to click on a link, open attachments from an unknown sender, or unexpected content and poor use of spelling and grammar. Now, a lot of people are just click-happy. Read before you click; make sure in your Outlook or in your email program that you don't have it set to automatically download the content this way. Scripts will not run. This is a problem because Americans are really coming under the scope of being prey to a fraudulent email. And, you know, more employees are becoming the threat because they just click and click happy. And you know, a lot of employees have noticed that scams for emails and texts have been growing within the last six months. And also, a lot of employees know that the amount of personal information about them online could be used in phishing and other email scams. You know, whether we're talking about spear phishing, whether we're talking about wailing, right? And so I think a lot of people out there don't realize how an attack works.


John C. Morley: (05:01)

And so the fact that AI is able to learn things about you and come across as a friend or someone that knows you is something that I believe, let's say, perplexes a lot of people. Well, if they know my information, or for example, you just got a text from what seems to be Verizon or T-Mobile, and they tell you that you owe this balance. But here's the thing: many of these companies have had leaks in their system. Now they can gather, let's say, your phone number, your email, and that information, but they don't actually know your bill. So they just make some random number up, like, " Hey, this is what we've got, and you need to be doing this because your bill is behind. I mean, that's what I have noticed. And so it's definitely a big problem. And so I will tell you that it's definitely an issue, okay? Definitely an issue. And I will also tell you that more things are starting to happen. More things are starting to happen. And I can tell you that it's going to get worse before it gets better. It happens because the system knows your bill date, so it's able to grab the bill date. It can't grab, let's say, the actual data on the bill. It knows your name, it knows your email address, it knows your phone number, and it sends you a text. It says, Hey, you know, click here to pay your bill, and they just estimate some lacking number, and then they tell you your account's gonna be shut off. I've even gotten phone calls telling you my account will be suspended when it's not. It's just these bad actors. And they're doing this by using, let's call it, artificial intelligence.


But what they're really doing is they're learning behaviors, not just of myself, but of the billing companies like Verizon and T-Mobile, right? They're learning when the billing date ends. And what they're also doing is they're looking for leaks in the system. And so when they know that a bill's supposed to come around this time, or they just happen to notice that, you know, a bill was just generated, or a notice was just generated, they're gonna immediately assume that you're behind on your bill. That's, that's the scam. And so artificial intelligence is going to get a lot more intrusive. So we want to be careful what information we share because the information we share and that convenience could cost us insecurity. So know that AI is growing and AI is learning things about you, whether you want the systems to learn about you. And remember, AI is part of a great big network, okay? And so the way AI gets smarter is through the data, the algorithms, right? We all remember the movies War Games and Whopper, right? Which were the Whopper computer. Do y'all remember that? And so I dunno if any guys remember seeing that. But it was pretty cool. And the interesting thing is that it stands for War Operation Plan Response. That was the name of the place where the supercomputer was (NORAD), where they gave the information. And so the interesting thing was that the computer had all these different games, including a very simple game called Tic Tac Toe. And the computer was always learning how to become better than its last play, be more efficient, and have fewer casualties in chess or tic tac toe. How do I win without losing more assets? And so that also happened in the war when they tried to do they had something called thermonuclear war when they simulated how the war was gonna happen. However, the computer didn't realize that the simulation was a simulation. See, the computer doesn't know the difference between whether it's a simulation or whether it's actually real.


John C. Morley: (09:40)

And we'll talk more about that a little bit later, the program. Cause I think some of the things I'm gonna share with you are gonna really astonish you. All right? So I just want you to be alert that AI threats are out there. And so it's not a question of if you'll get hacked, but when if you are not properly protected.

Alright, so let's move on to another very, very important topic: hackers are cashing in on hacked IP addresses. This is something that'll probably really roll your head. A lot of bad online actors are stealing IP addresses and converting them. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, to cash hard cash. Some of them are converting them into crypto, but ultimately they go into cash, and they sell them to what they call proxy wear services. These bad actors are planting proxy ware on computers without their knowledge. So I think that's really a big problem. And I know, ladies and gentlemen, that you're probably saying, Hey, you know, this sounds crazy, but malicious actors are out there, and they're doing this, and they're selling the unit's IP dresses to proxy ware services, and they make as much as $10 a month for every compromised device. And you know, the thing is, you might say, gee, what the heck is $10? Well, when you have a thousand or a million of them, that will add up every month, right? And proxy ware services allow a user to make money by sharing their internet connection with others. And it's a problem. The whole thing about a proxy is that it hides your identity, right? So you're using another IP address. The way people validate, whether it's credit card companies or medical records, they check to see if you are at your home IP address. Okay? Are you at a known IP address, either at home or work? If you're not, they ask for some more information. Some providers have gone so far as to say, look, you're not within an IP address that's even within the United States. We're gonna ban access to you until you're back at a US IP address. And so this is happening with cryptocurrency and so many different things. And proxy work services are starting to bow down to care to people who wanna bypass protections and restrictions. This is absolute, and when I tell you crazy, it's absolutely crazy. They're even apps out there that are promoted by referral programs called influencer promoting. And so this is a real problem. And so, you know, there's gonna be bad actors. I always said if these bad actors would actually use their skills and put them toward good, they'd be very successful instead of making money illegally.

Proxy services expose users to all kinds of risks. Users cannot control the activities. The reason for a proxy is so that people don't know your IP address. So it's very important that if you're using a proxy, let's say a VPN, and I don't want you to confuse the two, so a VPN is a virtual private networking, and a proxy is a little different. People confuse them, and they're different. A proxy war is where they basically have proxies, kind of like in a database. And there have been instances where users just become involved in criminal activity and don't even know they're part of it. We've heard of things like the s SQL injection programming and other types of things. And so as organizations and people become aware of this, okay, endpoint management is no longer as and gentlemen just about antivirus and malware.


John C. Morley: (13:39)

In fact, we stopped just protecting against antivirus and malware, I mean, years ago because there are so many more threats out there. You have the web filtering and vulnerability scanning, making sure that we don't have zero-day attacks and that things are patched correctly. You have sandbox detection. So if something is bad, it can be sent off or susceptible to a little virtual box on the machine. And then see how it behaves, note its behavior, and decide whether to release it, quarantine it, or take further action. And so, we've got things like ransomware, right? And so this is stuff that we really didn't worry about years ago, but bad actors are getting more progressive, okay? And more active, not passive. And so there are concerns, like if you're using a log for J is a big problem.


John C. Morley: (14:40)

And you might be asking me, Hey John, what is the log for J? Well, the log for J has lots of problems. There are many vulnerabilities in the log for J. And people say to me, John, is the log for J still an issue? Yeah. So log for J's library in December of 2021 was immediately clear of billions of Java devices at risk. And so much of the log for J has died down, but it doesn't mean that the threat is gone. So you need to patch your system. And people are telling me, Hey John, how do you fix the log for J issue? And, you know, that's a great question because you can obviously update your log for J version using the latest firewalls or security implement, you know, things like two factors. But that's very important. Use multi-factor authentication. These are all things you can do, right? But I think a lot of people have to understand, you know, what it is and how it works, right?

And another thing you can do is, is remove JNDI, which is jamming Java naming directory initiatives. It's actually JNDI. And so it allows Java over clients to discover and look up data resources, but it might become a problem, right?

And you might be saying, look, John, if the software may factor put in, yeah, I'll tell you so many that I've worked with, whether it's medical facilities and these are systems that they put a lot of money into, Things that might scan your eye blood pressure systems, and the system itself is fine. It's just the operating system they're using or their program is using outdated, let's say, library files because they haven't bothered to update the software. I can't tell you how many doctor's offices we give warnings to, like, Hey, you know, you've got several high threats on there. We can't do anything about it. You've gotta make your software vendor aware of it that you're getting your proprietary scanning software from that scans for retina back of the eye, or your blood pressure machine or the glucose machine or whatever, it's passing data that could potentially be of vulnerability. And that's a serious, serious problem. Alright, we talked about convenience, right? We've talked about the fact of giving up our information for convenience. Well, a PET app data leak may not be worth its convenience at all. A real cybersecurity nightmare if you ask me; you love your pet so much, but is putting in your data about you and your pet really worth that convenience? Pet apps are leaking your sense of information is probably not something you thought about. But there were major studies in 2022 from the European SIMP Symposium on security and privacy workshops conference, and this is an issue. Computer scientists at Newcast University in Royal Holloway University of London on February 28th recently exposed multiple security and privacy risks. So researchers at universities evaluated top Android apps or pets and other campaign animals, as well as how they're being used. And they found 40 leaking parts of user information. Wow. So pet tech is obviously doing things right now that include information for your pets, medication, GPS trackers nutrition for your dog, cat, or pet. And some of these pet apps control smart feeding systems that dispense food on a set schedule or in response to the animal's behavior. And so the leaky app problem is widespread, and it's a mobile security risk. The problem is that as this happens, there could be things like bad actors that could prevent your pet from getting their food or changing their medication and just because they're bad actors and just cause maybe they're not animal lovers, it could be a plethora of things. So researchers have been checking this out for quite a while, and the analysis has shown that 21 apps track users before they even consent, that actually violates current data protection regulations.


John C. Morley: (19:59)

I smell lawsuits; I smell lots of problems here. But many pet owners say, oh, it's just for my pet, but you're still putting in your name, address, phone, and credit card, right? Remember, I said that you should never put in personal information and the uncured unsecured site or apps you don't trust because that information could get exposed if you do. So I just want to make you guys aware you love your pets. Make sure that you actually take the time, ladies and gentlemen, to validate what you're putting in. And if you're unsure about it, don't put information. And for all sake, don't have it controlling your pet's food-feeding schedule if you can't really trust it. All right, ladies and gentlemen, I promised you a guest on the JMOR Tech talk show. And yes, I'd like to welcome you to the JMOR Tech talk show. I would like to welcome you.

Yes, none other than, do you know who that is? Yes. None other than chat GPT. I would like to welcome chat GPT because I've gotta tell you that people have been asking questions all along. So I wanna ask one question right now, and I'm talking right to a chat GPT Live engine. You might be asking me, you know, what does this actually mean? So the thing that I'm gonna tell you is that chat GPT is evolving. Okay? So what is chat GPT? You can see, I'm gonna type that right in the box right here. All right. And it's gonna come back with an answer in just a second.

Chat GPT: (21:53)

I am chat GPT, a large language module created by OpenAI based on GPT, generative pre-trained transformer architecture. I was designed to understand and generate human-like text based on the input I received from the users. I have been trained on a massive data set of diverse tech sources, including books, articles, and websites, to understand human language patterns and generate contextually relevant and grammatically correct responses. I aim to provide helpful and informative answers to your questions and assist you in any way I can.

John C. Morley: (22:29)

Before I even launched chat GPT Today, you didn't see this. It told me that this is a guide and not to take this information to heart because it's meant to be a guide. And if I get any offensive responses, they apologize, but it's still a work in progress. Okay, so what are chat GPT limitations?

 Okay, so I'm gonna type it here again.

Chat GPT: (23:00)

Chat GPT is a powerful language model with impressive capabilities. There are some limitations to what I can do. Here are a few of them. Number one, limited understanding of context. Although I have been trained in a massive data set of text, I may not always be able to understand the full context of a conversation. This can lead to responses that are entirely not relevant or accurate. Lack of empathy. As an artificial intelligence language model, I do not have emotions, which means I cannot fully empathize with human feelings or emotions, inability to handle physical tasks. While I can assist with information and answer questions, I cannot perform physical tasks. Bias, like any AI system, may reflect biases that exist in the data that I was trained on. Recognizing this and using critical thinking when interacting with me is important. Inability to learn on my own, but I can learn from new data. I cannot learn on my own without being specifically trained by humans.

John C. Morley: (24:02)

So remember, it's trained by data that is really, really important. All right, everybody gets that? So let's move on with another question. Are you a good source to tell me how to invest my money?


 Chat GPT: (24:24)

 Oh, I can provide information about investing. I'm not a financial advisor and cannot provide personalized investment advice. It is important to seek the guidance of a qualified financial professional before making any investment decisions. Investing involves risks, and it is essential to understand these risks and make informed decisions based on your financial situation, risk tolerance and investment objectives. I can provide general information about investing principles and strategies, but it's always important to do your own research and consult with a financial advisor before making any investment decisions.

John C. Morley: (25:02)

All right. Can you help with medical concerns?


 Chat GPT: (25:12)

 As an AI language model, I can provide general information about medical conditions and treatments based on the information provided to me. However, I'm not a medical professional and cannot provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. It is essential to seek the guidance of a qualified medical professional for any medical concerns, as they can provide personalized advice based on your individual medical history, symptoms and circumstances. It is important to always consult with a medical professional before making any medical decisions or taking any medications or treatments.

John C. Morley: (25:47)

Okay. So why was chat GPT created? I know this one's gonna probably send you for a tailspin.

Chat GPT: (25:58)

Chat GPT was created to provide an AI-powered conversational agent that could interact with humans in a natural and human-like way. It was designed to understand human language patterns and generate contextually relevant and grammatically correct responses. Chat GPT was created by an open AI and artificial intelligence research organization to advance the field of AI and make it more accessible to the public. Chat GPT is based on the GPT generative pre-trained transformer architecture and has been trained on a massive data set of diverse tech sources to improve its language, understanding, and generation capabilities. The goal of creating Chat GPT is to provide a useful tool that can assist people in a variety of tasks, from answering questions to generating texts to assisting with research and more.

John C. Morley: (26:57)

Okay, so what is chat GPTs biggest strength?

Chat GPT: (27:06)

One of the biggest strengths of chat GPT is its ability to generate human-like responses that are contextually relevant and grammatically correct. This is due to the fact that it has been trained on a massive dataset of diverse services.

John C. Morley: (27:19)

You got the idea. We're kind of getting the same things over and over again, right? I'm gonna ask another question. What are the dangers of chat GPT?

Chat GPT: (27:33)

Like any powerful tool, chat GPT comes with certain risks and limitations. Here are a few potential dangers of chat GPT; spread of misinformation, reinforcing biases, and privacy concerns.

John C. Morley: (27:47)

Okay. I'm just reading about some of the high levels of dependency on technology and ethical concerns, and it's important to recognize and address these risks and limitations and use Chat GPT responsibly and with caution. Okay, so we can ask a question. Does the military use chat now? They may not answer this question.


 Chat GPT: (28:19)

 I do not have access to information about specific applications of chat GPT by military or government organizations. As such, information would be confidential. However, it is possible to chat GPT or similar AI-powered conventional agents that are being used in various military and government contexts, such as for intelligence gathering, language translation, and communication with personnel or civilians in the field. The use of AI in military and government applications is rapidly evolving, and it is likely that chat GPT or similar tools will continue to be developed and deployed for a variety of purposes in the future.

John C. Morley: (28:55)

Okay, so is chat GPT used in healthcare? About a second to as you see it, it responds like, like really, really, really quickly. I think that's the most important thing. And I just realized as I'm sharing the screen here I definitely wanna be sharing out the actual screen. There are a lot of screens here with Chat GPT. I just wanna make sure that I'm actually on the chat GPT. Then it looks like I wasn't on the chat GPT screen. Sorry about that. I was on the interest rate, but you still see I was reading it to you. So now I'll type something. So I just asked it a question about I asked it a question about healthcare, and so you're probably saying to me, Hey John, this is really, really cool. But the question is, is it being used in healthcare? Okay, so

Chat GPT: (30:00)

Yes, chat, GPT and similar AI-powered conversational agents are increasingly being used in healthcare settings. (I guess cause it's not confidential to say that). They can be used to assist with a range of tasks, such as answering patient questions, providing information about medical conditions and treatments, and assisting with triage and diagnosis. Chat GPT can also be used to improve patient engagement and education by providing personalized health information and support to patients through a conversational interface. Additionally, chat GPT can be used to support healthcare providers by providing them with access to relevant medical information, assisting with administrative tasks and improving communication with patients. However, it's important to know that the use of chat GPT and other AI-powered tools in healthcare also raises certain concerns and limitations, such as patient information's accuracy and privacy.

John C. Morley: (30:50)

That's really important. Does Disney use chat GPT? Take a second, and you will see it responds really, really quickly. So I just put the information in there, and it did not give me an answer. What companies used chat GPT? Just gonna turn it off cause I might be interfering with the actual chat GPT here. Let's see here. Sometimes the system might get a little, so I'm just gonna go to a new chat. Are you there? Okay, so we just noticed that it is still having a problem with one question. I asked it, did you notice what happened? I asked it a simple question. Okay. And it said there was an error in generating the response. I'm gonna go to clear conversation. I'm gonna come back here. I'm gonna say, what companies use chat GPT? I kind of had a little bit of, I guess, a blunder moment there.

Chat GPT: (32:20)

As an AI language model, I do not know which companies use me directly. However, many companies and organizations have access to open AI and GPT technology through their API and have incorporated it into their product and services. Some examples of companies that have used GPT technology in various ways include Microsoft, Salesforce, Adobe, Open AI, hugging Face, and many others.

 John C. Morley: (32:41)

So does it cost use chat GPT?

 Chat GPT: (32:50)

 Yes, there are costs associated with using open AI GPT technology, including chat GPT.

John C. Morley: (32:56)

So there are free plans, but obviously the paid ones. So let's ask, what is the difference between paid and free chat GPT? I'm asking a lot of questions, aren't I?

Chat GPT: (33:12)

The main difference between the paid and free versions is the level of access and usage limits. The free version of chat GPT, which is available through Open AI, which we're using today, generates up to 5,000 tokens per month for free. Tokens refer to individual words of syllables. So this translates roughly to 2,500 or 3000 characters; we're about 400 to 500 words. Additionally, the free version of chat GPT may have longer response times, and there may be restrictions on the types of use cases allowed. On the other hand, the paid versions of chat GPT provide greater access to technology with higher usage limits.

John C. Morley: (33:50)

Okay, so I think you guys have really understood a lot about chat GPT. Is there anything else you would like to share with my viewers in today's Chat GPT?

Chat GPT: (34:09)

Yes, I'd like to share some additional information about chat GPT and open AI GPT technology in general chat GPT is one of the most advanced conversational AI models available today, and it has the ability to generate high-quality responses to a wide range of prompts and questions. However, it is important to note that chat GPT is still an AI language model, which means that it has limitations and may not always provide accurate, relevant responses. As with technology, it's important to use chat GPT responsibly and to be aware of its limitations. Open AI is committed to advancing AI technology responsibly and ethically. As part of this commitment, they have developed various tools and resources to help users understand and mitigate the potential risks of AI, such as bias and unintended consequences.

Additionally, open AI provides comprehensive documentation and support to help customers integrate GPT technology into their products and services effectively. Overall, chat GPT and open AI GPT technology can transform how we interact with technology and each other. As AI continues to evolve and improve, we expect to see even more exciting developments in this field in the years to come.

John C. Morley: (35:25)

Thank you, chat GPT, for taking the time to be a guest on my Tech Talk show.


 Chat GPT: (35:40)

 You're welcome. It was a pleasure to be here and share information about chat GPT and Open AI GPT Technology. Feel free to ask any further questions if you or your viewers have any further questions.

John C. Morley: (35:51)

Now, it was like Chat GPT was like the perfect guest. Wasn't I asked all these questions, and I didn't plan this? I just asked logical questions, and it was very interesting. The path that I wanted to take was conveyed to you without even a lot of effort. I knew the path I was going down. I intended to prove to you that chat GPT could not make any changes to decisions because it couldn't make decisions based on human emotion. And it was not an expert. Data only learn it. That's amazing. I hope you enjoyed the chat GPT guest, and feel free to watch the show again.

 Sorry about the beginning, not having chat GPT and the wrong screen enabled there, but you did get the idea of how it works, and you can mess around with chat GPT for free.

All right, so we've got one more amazing topic to cover, ladies and gentlemen; I hope you enjoyed chat GPT. That was incredible, and I'm sure we will bring Chat GPT again when we have more specific questions. You know, we could ask you questions like, let's say I wanted to go back there and I want to ask a question. Maybe you want, if I want to go back, I'll do that another show. I'll bring chat GPT. I gotta ask you, what do you think about the shootings or things like that? And you're gonna see that it's not gonna have really an answer. It's gonna have answers based on other people's biases and opinions. Alright, our last topic, ladies and gentlemen.

I have enjoyed being with you, but we've gotta share one more topic. The FBI warns against juice Jacking on published USB charging stations. What the heck is this? So yes, the FBI is warning against using free charging stations in airports, hotels, or shopping centers. Apparently, bad actors have found ways to introduce malicious data and programs into the USB environment. And more specifically, ladies and gentlemen, what they have done, which I think you're gonna find really cool, is that when somebody juice jacks and they do this, they're able to access your contacts, your email, your banking apps and their content text messages and more. So even though the application itself is sending the data through encryption, if we get onto the device directly, the data are not encrypted yet. It's not encrypted yet. So even though it's doing all this fancy stuff to go through, it's not encrypted yet. So how can you combat this? Really simple just bring a charging cable and the plug. So if you don't have that, definitely check that out because I think you're gonna find that carrying that little plug is really gonna be the difference of your identity possibly getting compromised. And, you know, we don't think about these things every day because, like, hey, you know, I just plug it into my plug in a home. Of course, you're fine, but I'm talking about airports because what can happen is you're at a table, all right. There might be, I don't know, 4, 6, 7, 8, or 10, and someone who's in that same circuit, it could be at the same table a little bit down further, but they're plugged into that same hub that that power source is plugged into, and they hook up a skimming device. That device is able to snip data right off your device for whatever gets encrypted.

 It's just so amazing. So I remember when I told you that awareness is the key to protecting yourself. And then, once you have the awareness, you take steps to protect yourself. It's not a question, ladies, and gentlemen, or if you're gonna get hacked or attacked, but when, if you're not properly protected. I also do want to thank Chat GPT for scheduling time with us beyond the JMOR Tech Talk show and giving you a live interaction of how Chat GPT works. And I see a lot of benefits with chat GPT. It can be a great knowledge base, like maybe you are at a company and the chat. GPT has all your policies and procedures. You can ask to chat GPT questions as a customer has just complained about this item. What should I do? Great. is this a customer that's been with us for a while? Yes. Great. What was the item? Great. What was the invoice number? Great, I've looked at the invoice number. I see that this customer spends quite a bit of money with us. I recommend refunding their purchase and sending them a complimentary item at no cost. As I can see, we more than likely have made our profit on this customer at least four or five times this year. So, Chat GPT can use the data, it can use you, it can use other people, but Chat GPT is nothing more than an automated bot that's able to talk to other databases and gather information either that is, let's say saved or real-time data that's being updated from somewhere else or sensors like cameras or a plethora of things. It has been an amazingly fun time being with you guys today. I hope that you will definitely choose to comment, like, and support this video and tag your friends, colleagues, and associates. Share this with everyone you know on social media. If you would like to be a guest on the JMOR Tech Talk show, go to Click on reach out today and apply to become a guest. You see, we're creating some amazing shows. We're trying to give you information that it's not only gonna turn your head, not only gonna entertain you but is going to inform you so you don't find yourself in quicksand and can take proactive steps instead of having to worry about doing something once it's already happened. You know who I am, ladies and gentlemen, I am John C. Morley, serial entrepreneur, and it has been an amazing privilege, pleasure, and honor to be with you.

Or, if you're listening to the podcast, just go to There's so much information on there with this show article, and it catches my lace article, which was just written, the Evolution of the Elevator. And I want to share this with you because the first elevator was created a very long time ago. The first elevator was created basically around 236 BC by the Greek mathematician Archimedes. And the first elevator was comprised of hoisting ropes wrapped around a drum and rotated by manual force by people propelling a capstone. According to Wikipedia, a capstone is a vertical axle rotating machine developed for use on sailing ships to multiply the pulling force of cement when hauling ropes and horses. The principle is similar to that of the windlass, which has a horizontal axle. Did you know, ladies and gentlemen, that a multi-complex of rooms existed in Rome, including animal pens, tunnels all below the coliseum, and many elevators were powered by hundreds of men using winches and counterweights to move gladiators and large animals through various shafts up and down into the arena for battle. By 1743 Lewis the 15th developed the flying chair designed to bring one lady and two her quarters on the third floor, the palace of versa. In his retreat, a flying table enabled the king and their guests to dine without interruptions for the servants. There are many different times of elevators. The next big breakthrough happened in 1957 when Alicia Graves Otis engineered a safety brake system. You're gonna have to read my article to learn more, but no, there are many types of elevators. There are geared elevators, and there are gearless elevators. They're both traction. There are hydraulic elevators that get pushed by hydraulic fluid. And so the hydraulic fluid actually gets pushed down into the piston. It causes it to rise. When it drops the fluid, it causes the elevator to drop. And there are also elevators, ladies and gentlemen, that are vacuum pneumatic elevators. They're actually made in the United States. And those elevators actually use air pressure so that it's a vacuum. And so when let's say it basically lets pressure out of the bottom, it falls, okay? It rises when it takes the pressure, basically when it sucks up from the top, pulling the pressure out. Pretty cool. You can check that out by going to and clicking on John's recent articles. It has been such an amazing privilege and a pleasure to be with you tonight and my wonderful guest. I think it's the first time I've ever had a guest that was actually a piece of technology. I mean, that was, I think, the first time I've talked to a guest that was not a real person. That was cool. All right. Have yourself a great rest of your day and your weekend. Feel free to watch this as many times as you want and share it because this information is key to understanding how to live in the world, how to protect yourself, and how to grow. Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll see you guys next Friday. Take care, everyone. Be well.
