There are levels to free will. I wouldn't waste my time on an exact definition. Everyone gets so goofy doing that. Defining an absolute is like "what
happens in a black hole."
Its a grey area that starts at recognizimg the self as separate to other.. and then taking an action as a self.
Free will is your ability to starve yourself to death with food in the room.
Freedom is not the same thing as free will, and most everyone confuses the two as they overlap, ever so slightly. A person in prison still has their
will, maybe not the freedom to execute that will. You have the free will to understand the entire universe. You can choose before the options, but you
dont make the options you can choose, well not entirely.. god mode is just the extreme of free will/freedom..
People use extremes to misunderstand the gray area Every topic and every being and every concept falls in. Words suck. Logic based on words is
illogical unless those words are used to express gradients.
"fully in control of how we perceive"
"in some control of how we perceive AND act."
I try to get people to see better.
That is all.
I have more free will than a dog because I can think of more options.
The brains neurogenises..
There is more freedom of movement for even those lacking much self awareness, which is a separate but again overlapping concept, than most care to
If you want full control go to bed!
I like the quote:
He who controls others may be powerful,
But he who has mastered himself is mightier still.
As to AI its already happening but its still being executed by human hands. Its not one guy at NSA reading all your texts with two eyes neurons and a
sleep cycle.. computers can already mark potential targets like needles in a hay stack and the 10,000 needles picked are in groups of subjects like
terrorist, rebel rouser, dissident, bank fraud, international spy... and ranked maybe in three threat levels within those groups.. the people
targetted automatically have a database like a facebook timeline of everything theyve ever done through google credit cards banks schools military and
a model of their likely movements times their phone stops moving (sleeping habits) all of it..
When I am talking about AI you seem to want it to mean something other than what I mean. Maybe you mean self conscious computer code. I dont know..
What I am saying is he who has suffiecient data can predict the future (again to some degree, no absolutes in reverbs land) he who can predict the
future can ask an AI to model an outcome different from predicted and see a butterfly effect chaos pathway to said goal.
I did not ever say this was currently taking place.
Once it is there is no reason for me to ever mention it because its too late. The internet would be the best logical Body of AI.. its not its mind.
Think of a BIOS.. to get into the human mind the best output of an AI would be a phone screen, computer screen, speakers.. humans are training
themselves to output as much into the internet to the point the internet is the mirror of our collective inner world.
Freewill you defined as the ability to control ones own perception. Funny and the flipside is losing that ability to even decipher reality.
Me? Im not in the game as it were.
Im just watching now.
Your signature is funny.
You see through eyes you never had and use memory space you could never possess everytime you watch a youtube video. You're already a cyborg.
Im not passing judgements. People and their connotations to words that sound bad or good to them mess up most of what I say.
