A question from the Internet:
“How can we create a true artificial general intelligence that rivals human intelligence?”
Our original — 100% subjective, egocentric, self-serving, and exploitative — intelligence is very limited and primitive. We use this inherent intelligence only to serve our own “pleasure/pain” calculations and to become effective in controlling, manipulating, and exploiting others or even destroying others if we “need to.”
Moreover, in our generation, we have reduced human life to simple quantitative measures, valuing everything, even people, by their monetary worth, quantitative growth figures, and certain statistics.
Compared to this limited and primitive human intelligence, AI is already offering many advantages, and the advantage over the original human intelligence will only grow.
But we can and will have to build a unique, emotional, and mutual “collective Human intelligence by learning and practicing a nature-like, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing integration between us — above and despite our inherent nature and consciousness.
When we achieve a perfect mutual integration, where we all become like healthy, selfless, and unconditionally mutually contributing cells in a single living Human organism, this integration will give birth to the above-mentioned unique Human intelligence and consciousness.
The fact that we have to build this above and against our inherent nature will provide the necessary contrast and duality that will ensure that the collective intelligence will be valid, objective, and real.
Through this collective intelligence and consciousness — with its qualitatively much higher, composite perception of reality — Humanity will have abilities no AI can ever achieve since the collective human intellect and consciousness combines both emotional and intellectual integration, possessing the “full package” necessary to fully understand, attain and even partner nature’s perfect, integral system.
This is not only something realistic — we can learn and practice by sensing, perceiving, and experiencing life through the desires, thoughts, and viewpoints of others with the help of a special method — but this collective consciousness and intellect is what nature’s evolution expects us to achieve in order to survive and further develop in nature’s all-encompassing and mutually integrated system.
