Question from the Internet:
“What would be the extreme of artificial intelligence?”
The “extreme of artificial intelligence” is what we are trying to implement in human society today, especially in Western countries.
We try to force a totally artificial — quasi-intelligent — lifestyle and code of conduct on people. We are reducing life to a set of protocols, rules, and templates that we “can apply” to any situation and reach “positive solutions.”
We see life “unfolding” on spreadsheets and according to statistics. We believe that life is a simple equation represented by numbers and formulas. We measure and judge everything through quantitative measures.
We reached a point in “modern” human evolution where we completely discarded emotions, and we worship the “human intellect” as the only supreme power and force in the Universe.
Thus, it is not a surprise that AI is the new “God” that is going to solve our problems and take over the management of the world completely. We have reached the point of our collective insanity where we truly believe that an emotionless and non-sentient “supercomputer” that is effective in making calculations and combining data can control humanity and the natural system.
This is the most extreme form of “artificial intelligence,” which is also the furthest point from understanding who we are and what consciousness and intelligence actually are.
This is a very important state we had to reach. Only from this point of denying our own actual essence can we start to search for, learn, and find our essence.
Nature’s system is an “emotional” system where everything is based on feelings.
Human beings are supposed to be emotional beings that act based on emotional impressions, desires, and the fulfillment of desires. Our “intellect” or “mind” is an auxiliary tool for sorting, understanding, cataloging, and preparing our emotional faculties.
By discarding our emotions and “choosing” a “life” based on protocols, statistics, and quantitative measures, we are discarding our humanity and becoming the enemies of life itself!
Fortunately, nature’s system and its laws will not allow humanity to ‘abandon life” for the sake of this “extreme artificial intelligence.” The further we venture from the right, the natural path of development, the greater crisis we find ourselves.
The overwhelming bureaucracy, protocols, and regulations are already stifling life to such an extent that human societies are becoming unmanageable and defunct. The more people try to force this kind of “management,” the less control and success they have.
The only way humanity can survive is by rediscovering our “emotional origins” by understanding the basic desires that drive us and by learning how to harness and aim our desires and emotions in the right way.
We need to learn and accept how negative and hateful we are towards each other by default since we are all born with a 100% self-serving, self-justifying, and “self-loving” nature where all our calculations are only for our own sake — most of the time at the expense of others. Above and against our inherent nature, desires, and emotions — without suppressing or erasing them — we need to learn how to cover everything with “natural love,” which we need to learn from nature.
This is not the 100% self-serving “romantic, poetic, or hormonal” love we know about. We need to learn from nature what “true love” is: the totally selfless and unconditional sense, support, and service of others.
If we want to survive in nature’s finely balanced and mutually integrated system — of which system we are integral parts — we need to become like healthy individual cells of the same living organism, where each element and part feels the others more than oneself and exists only to fully satisfy all the needs and desires of others.
This way, we will all get the most perfect and immediate fulfillment of all our needs, like existing in the mother’s womb where we are all both the embryos and the womb itself.
As a result of such mutual integration and mutual cooperation, we will also develop a “higher consciousness,” a collective Human consciousness like the personal consciousness we feel as a result of the integration of our biological cells and organs.
And it will be this collective Human consciousness — which will achieve similarity with nature on the merit of the nature-like mutual integration — that will become the true and natural intelligence, being fully aware of itself and being fully aware of the system it exists in.
Reaching this true “intelligence” — this collective Human consciousness through our seamless mutual integration with each other — is the only purpose and goal of our lives.
