This essay explores various perspectives and concerns related to the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the doctor-patient relationship and education. The essay combines narrative reflections and critical analysis of the issue, using Ray Bradbury’s novel "Fahrenheit 451" as a resource. The author argues that AI, represented by developments such as Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT, has a significant impact on medicine and education. Drawing from the described novel, fundamental questions are posed regarding the attributes that constitute the doctor-patient experience, professional practice, and the overall human experience. Some differences between human reasoning and algorithmic systems are analyzed, emphasizing the importance of preserving human attributes in interactions with artificial intelligence, such as the role of emotions and critical reflection. The article asserts the importance of promoting educational practices grounded in deliberation on values, critical thinking, and sentimental pedagogy as alternatives to an automatic relationship with technology, as an expression of a loss of meaning and significance: automatic nihilism.
