True, collective intelligence
The definition of “intelligence” from Merriam-Webster:
Definition of intelligence. 1a(1) : the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations : reason also : the skilled use of reason. (2) : the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one’s environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria (such as tests)
Most of the time we apply this definition in very individualistic, scattered way according to actual situations. So how could we apply this definition most correctly, appropriately in our lives?
By default, we evaluate, observe, perceive things subjectively in a totally egocentric way. But at the same time we exist in a fully integrated, interdependent system which we can’t comprehend in a subjective, individualistic manner, with our personal intelligence.
Even the A.I. systems we design are programmed with our egocentric, subjective mind for specific reasons. Thus A.I. as it is, also can’t help us in dealing with the integral world we exist in. A.I. is very effective in quantitative ways compared to an individual human mind, but it is not more developed to cope with the real, fully integrated, interdependent world than us.
In order to acquire true intelligence which could help us cope with the integrated reality and to give us ability to solve global problems, we need to develop a unique “collective intelligence” from a network of Human beings.
We need to learn how to rise above our inherently egocentric, self-justifying and subjective consciousness and perception, in order to form a common “unit”, collective mind.
That collective intelligence will be able to comprehend and control the global, integral, Natural reality around us, on the merit of becoming similar, compatible with it.
This doesn’t simply mean a research group, people working together as now. This means a seamless, selfless, complete integration through a unique method, where all personal, egocentric, subjective calculations, opinions are neutralized, and completely new, composite ideas, solutions are born that never existed in any of the individual participants before.
