I've been reading up on our current status on AI recently, for obvious reasons.
I do believe that we are no more than 30 years from superAI level, when most
of our lives will become meaningless. Of course I'll be dead long before then
and won't see it.
In a way, our current situation is much like what could happen then.
All of human fear and hostility is feeding into this "meta-life", and in great
part making it what it is.
I'm sure that you've noticed, that a large part of the human race wants to
destroy themselves and others. The Christians, the Muslims, others.
They want the world to end, and they want their "spiritual authorities"
to take over.
If I were an "invading AI" or an easily impressionable symbiotic lifeform,
I'd take that as an invitation.
If you want to go with that theory.. it's no wonder that there is another
faction that wants to hypnotise us with UFOS.
Contrary instructions to the nascient supercomputer, to manifest
something BESIDES the apocalypse.
I've joked about this for years..
I'd much rather that we manifest the stay-puft marshallow man,
or butterflys and unicorns.
But now.. humans want to destroy themselves one way or another.
The great filter of the Fermi Paradox?
I was talking to one of our past AMA guests privately once, and
gave him the "high sign":
I think that it's been in the works here on Earth for a long time..
I don't know how to stop it, as I am only one vote.
I can't stop even 1 person from voting, and I wouldn't want to.
Humans only believe in "evil". Even their "good" is more "evil"
It's not really good.. it's not really evil.. it's really fear and hate
We are a young species.
If humans want to destroy themselves, that is their right.
