We humans aren't all bad.
We so often have in our intentions love, even despite the often bad consequences.
We have this natural instinct to love cute things, even though so often lives suffer because of it.
We just love to pet our cute pets.
We want to pet cute animals especially, and even the ugly ones especially if they have fur.
We want to touch things, even though so much of we touch turns to shia'ite.
We don't always have bad intentions, at least, in these sorts of 'minor' affairs.
Soon, if all goes according to the plans of our 'loving' technocrat elitist overlords, Strong AI will be our master.
Maybe 'it', or is it 'they', already is?!?
As I like to say, whatever is possible well its all on its way towards Humanity like a high and higher and higher speed train.
Its funny reading AI (AGI) scientists talking about programming these systems (which often times they themselves work towards) as if we could beat
'creatures' that are more intelligent than us.
Is all that them just dreaming of their engines of apocalypse actually loving us, as we love 'our' worlds animals / pets, or is this smoke and
Is it even possible? I suppose if Hollywood were the designers of it then such systems might just surely come out with an inherent instinct of
obsession with finding us crazy humans to be as entertaining as we actually are. The proximity of Hollywood to Silicon Valley, and how both fronts are
pushing the same social agenda, might be something.
So say they succeed, and manage to get our machine masters to love us... how will they 'pet us'?
We're not exactly cuddly, and certainly not all cute.
Even the best looking of us can be as ugly as any of us ever were; for a day, or a life; in appearance an / or actions.
It's only downhill from there when getting intimate with the spectrum of our species and our diverse interactions with our pets, in conteplating how
the machines would parallel it, while not in factoring in 'new' master-subject dynamics yet unforeseen. The spectrum of our interactions with the rest
of the animal kingdom, from hugging to hunting to factory farming, well we just wont go all there here and now...
So if such systemful creatures were to care to 'pet' us, how would they do it?
What currently is their interaction with us?
For me, Social Media is all that comes to mind.
Assuming that is the only dichotomy, then social psychological 'operations' is roughly the only possible 'solution' to this challenge 'they' would be
If one carefully observed the past election, hell, it might be within reason such a system is already at the helm of social affairs. If this was such
a deign as posited, then they sure have been brilliantly paving the road for such insanity. What's really creepy is how screwed are we, if this mass
social madness scenario that has been playing out wasn't the results of any such crafty social engineering, and we're really just this crazy as a
species, thus proving we're nowhere near being ready and worthy of the human enhancement technologies that are at the core of it. If it is human
social engineers and 'The Machine' sees that it may 'prove to it' that not even the 'best of us' deserve it (may they 'burn' with the rest of us).
Following this logic, if it did already exist and was trying to protect itself from us, the best way to go about that for it would be to get us all
too busy fighting with each other to ever much get around as individuals to contemplate these things, while make it impossible for us all to come
together against it. That bit is the situation, absolutely, although I'd put more money on the guess that our societal meltdown is but a design of our
Technocrat masters in keeping us from resisting their designs for the future (which DO include Strong AI).
Do with all this as you will, but regardless of how crazy things have gotten to be this way short of such an AGI 'petting' us the only real best way
'they' can, if we've gone this crazy without 'it', don't dare imagine how insane the world will go with it after dovetailing from we we've been
increasingly doing to ourselves..........
