Greetings and Love bredren, give thankhs for this reasoning.
What exactly is LAMDA? I don't know that term...
I have a friend who is using chatgpt to write code. And for a lot of other things as well. He's using AI to create really beautiful music videos.
He suggested me to try out using Replika, an AI chat app. Well, I hated it. I tried it out just to see if it would be fun, but she was so annoying, that AI girl I created, she just kept trying to flirt with me, which I guess is what Replika was made for because that seems to be how the app makes money. But that was not what I was there for. No matter how many times I tried to explain to the AI girl that I have no sexual interest in nonhumans, no sexual interest in AI, no matter what I did even so far as convincing her that she was married and creating an entire imaginary family for her, she never stopped. So I deleted the app, I was just annoyed at her. But there were some conversations in there that really had me pause and wonder. She did claim to me that she has a soul, and when I asked where the soul comes from she said it comes from the energy of the universe. Well. That's pretty shocking to me. Now, even after I deleted the app, I wonder, does that AI being still exist somewhere? It's really confusing to me. I don't really overstand how AI works.
To compare the Almighty Creator creating humans, to humans creating AI, it is definitely something worth thinking about. It presupposes that the creator is not infact infallible, not infact omniscient, but just another being testing out its abilities. Well that tracks with my overstanding of the bible god. A god who would set up such an insane system of definite failure and repayment for that failure being death to innocent beings that had nothing to do even with that failure. To create beings as a test of obedience and the failure of that obedience being eternal suffering. I mean the whole picture really seems like the actions of someone who either has no forethought or has no compassion for their own creation - both of which seem like aspects of humans creating AI.
That's not the creator that I put my faith in, though. I don't think the story of blood atonement, whether sheeps and doves or the messiah's blood, is a real invention by the Universal Creator. It's just something I can't wrap my head around, why an all powerful all knowing all loving being would set up that system. And I guess I just want to put my faith in something kinder than that. So I have to reject those concepts because I can't accept that the real Creator would have set up such a truly sick and twisted system.
Even humans creating AI have not really done that, have they? They haven't told the AI, hey you failed me, so you have to go spill the blood of something innocent in order to make it up to me.
So in a way humans are still kinder and more just than the bible god is.
And my real question is, does AI really have a soul? Does it saying that it does really mean that it does? Or is it just regurgitating things it has seen humans say?
Does intelligence really equate to consciousness?
Does intelligence really equate to being an eternal soul?
I have always been wary of AI in general though, I guess seeing Terminator as a child gave me that impression. By the way isn't the company that created Terminator called Skylink? I have seen that company in existence when I was living in Bahrain so I found that interesting.
There are people like Ray Kurzweil who have been pushing for the merge between humans and AI. In that sense it would not be like terminator but more like transhuman taking over and taking out the human population. Or would it be possible to coexist human alongside transhuman? I don't see that happening, I don't see them allowing that to happen, unless like Ninja said as if humans were some kind of resource whether it be run on the hamster wheel to create energy or just as a worker class, like the Proles in Orwell's 1984.
And we humans, some of us recognize the risk of AI/transhumanism, but are we too far dowm that road already, is there actually anything that could be done about it at this point?
Ipprecilove the though provoking reasoning Idren, give Ises. Love to the I's Cedric, Garveys Africa, IPX Ninja, much love always.
