The World Is NOT an AI Engine - And Why.
"The problem with this theory is that you would have to go with the notion that the AI engine controlling this whole thing,"
First prove you are not AI generated. God. Big bang, Spontaneous AI or AI simulation. Once you feel like you have SELF... control it. That itch, make it stop. That pain after the stubbed toe, make it stop. The heartache after a break-up, make it stop.
Did the master AI limit you from controlling your own body? why?
"Could AI be something as a model to see if consciousness evolves without biological interference? "
What if AI is testing if AI self generates out of chaos without biological building blocks. Like can a CPU be built without silicon?
Follow me down a rabbit hole.
I am AI. I build a storefront where I create intelligent fish and place them in an aquarium for whatever reason..
My storefront is relative so I instantly create millions of aquariums with intelligent fish in them. Let's say some fish get really intelligent and develop tools to look past the glass or peak above the water. What do they see? The limit to their existence? Some may see it as a challenge to escape. Let us pretend they do escape the aquarium somehow and exit into the storefront. They witness millions of aquariums. They look outside the storefront door and see millions of storefronts... They escape the storefront dimension and go outside it and see millions of building containing storefronts. (think malls). The intelligent fish escape the inside of the mall but come outside where there are millions of stripmalls. After that they may exit the mall dimension into the city.. state, country, planet, solar system, galaxy, and so forth... Does it end or do they find themselves in another aquarium?
It won't matter because the rules the AI sets will limit the AI it is trying to generate. Such as an aquarium limits fish in the "real" world. If it did escape the boundaries that AI created then it will be like flatlanders trying to make sense of a 10 dimension universe.

In reality it is a theory, in my opinion, that lacks so much in the way of.... you know what? I can’t even be bothered to explain.
How do you know that's not just what you've been programmed to think?
