I've been wanting to bring this up, and I guess was spurred by the thread on AI potentially taking out humanity...
Does anyone else get the feeling at times like your computer has it's own mind??
I mean, the kinds of bugs my computer does at times is freaky- synchronicity abounds. Now that I have an android (with which I am connected to
Internet) I am finding the same kinds of weird stuff going on.
My son tells me that our home phone called him one night, (while I was thinking of him) and when he picked it up, the line went dead.
I was not in the house with our phone, but in a separate building next to it. I did not call him.
Three times I have had a video suddenly begin to play on my phone without my manipulating it- I suddenly start to hear the sound of my grandaughter
talking, to find a video I took of her is playing. The last time this happened, Later I got a call from her mom , saying she had been begging to
talk to me, and that she wanted to see me.
I have actually begun to just assume that when my phone automatically brings up a video of her and starts playing it, it is because she wants me to
get in touch. The association just started to form without thinking too much about it.... I just realized one day that I am leanign on that wierd
"bug" in my phone to get the message from a three year old many hours away.
My computer will freeze up or my browser suddenly close, when I am bout to look at subjects that are not good for me to see at this time (according to
my own judgement later, of course. Concluding that if I had read/seen something I would have made a different choice than I did, and it would have
been a wrong one).
I just have been sort of surprised that I have slowly begun to form a reaction with my computer and phone which is as if a consciousness is able to
express itself through it. My consciousness... that of others...
I wonder if we can slowly begin to project ourselves into these devices we use and rely upon all day?
I have wondered in the past the same thing about objects like cars.
