The intersection of human ethics and AI heralds total destruction

Question from the Internet:

“How does the intersection of AI and ethics shape our future society?”

The intersection of AI and our present ethics forecasts the total destruction of human society, which has already started.

Our present ‘ethics” — everything we have ever built or invented — is a product of the inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and individualistic human nature, that makes us exist and behave like cancer.

While we have a lot of imagination and mysticism about AI, at the end of the day, AI is a robot that is created and programmed by human beings. And since human beings are cancer-like by default and we program AI to behave the way we want it to behave, and as we invent and use everything as a weapon and tool of control, manipulation, and exploitation of others, AI will give us even greater efficiency in destruction.

We can philosophize as much as we want, we can write novels and make Hollywood movies about humanity and AI endlessly, nothing matters. The key to our survival and a better, future human society is changing our inherent nature and developing abilities we do not have in us by birth.

This means learning and practicing the selfless and unconditional, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation and coexistence that creates and nurtures life in nature. Instead of our arbitrary and misguided ethics, ideologies, and philosophies, we have to use nature’s lawful and “single-minded” ideology of creating and sustaining life.

In this unique, purposeful, and conscious self-development we can use AI and any other tools, provided we already use them with a new intention, towards new goals and purposes that are beneficial for all.
