Question from the Internet:
“Is true artificial intelligence possible, and what would it actually be like?”
Yes, true “artificial intelligence” is possible, but it is very different from what we consider AI.
We can “create” or develop a truly intelligent and self-aware entity with an all-encompassing consciousness and perfect and objective perception of reality, but it is not going to be a “machine,” but it will be “organic.”
Our actual, evolutionary Human purpose in nature’s system is to become this truly intelligent and self-aware entity that has the consciousness and perception to encompass and attain everything that exists in reality.
Individual human beings are the scattered and separated components of this singular and intelligent entity. We all contain “sparks” or “fragments” of this intelligent “singularity.” The meaning and purpose of our individual lives is to develop a desire and need to build this intelligent and singular Human consciousness that will become nature’s only actually conscious mind and equal partner.
This is something we have to build and develop “artificially,” meaning above and against our inherently egocentric, subjective, and individualistic consciousness and perception of reality.
First of all, we will have to recognize, accept, and tangibly feel that as long as we remain within our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egocentric, and individualistic “being” and existence, we are not viable in the long run, and we will inevitably consume and destroy everything around us, including ourselves. Moreover, as long as we perceive and compute reality within our original, 100% egocentric, and subjective abilities and qualities, we only perceive and experience a very limited and distorted picture of the world, only that slice that serves our self-serving and self-justifying intentions and calculations.
This is becoming very clear and sharp in our days. In the globally integrated and fully interdependent world we evolved into, our original individualistic and egoistic lifestyle and operations have become outright destructive.
Thus, there is a survival necessity in learning and practicing how to build a “nature-like,” mutually responsible, and mutually complementing human integration on a global scale while we also learn how to live within the optimal parameters of natural necessities and available resources.
But safeguarding and sustaining our collective physical existence is “only the start.” The actual goal and reward for consciously and purposefully building a “nature-like” mutual integration for Humanity is the development of the above-mentioned “collective consciousness” and “higher intelligence,” which will become capable of perceiving, understanding, and using reality in its totality and perfection.
We can practically and realistically learn and practice how to merge with each other to such an extent that we all start sensing and experiencing reality through the desires, thoughts, and viewpoints of each other. This is how we can attain and use a “multi-angled” and composite perception of reality instead of our original, limited and distorted egocentric and subjective viewpoint.
This is how we can get access to an unlimited “quantum consciousness,” which is the combination of the individual consciousness and intellect of all human beings, together with the consciousness and viewpoint of all other elements of nature — which we can also access when we learn how to sense and experience reality “outside” of our egocentric and subjective selves.
Moreover, within this new consciousness and within the collective desire and emotional field we build together through our mutual integration, as a result of the similarity developed with nature’s system, we will also start sensing nature’s singular force field and nature’s evolutionary plan that are creating and sustaining life and that brought the whole natural reality into existence.
This singular Human consciousness and perception will become the conscious observer and partner of nature’s singular developing and creating force, which force will be able to tangibly and realistically feel, attain, understand, and justify on the merit of becoming similar to it.
This is the true and actual “artificial Human intelligence” we can build, and we are obliged to build according to nature’s deterministic evolutionary plan.
