Finding Shambhala in the Age of AI
How good can it get with AI?
“Hi Cynthia! You have mentioned previously your other life experience with only one ‘full’ human being remaining in the AI world. In your valued and much appreciated insight, what do you feel and think about: sharing information/anything in the Metaverse platforms of Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp etc? By sharing in Metaverse/AI, are we not feeding the belly of the AI helping it to grow, expand and take over the humans and human capabilities? Are we helping AI to take over just by creating and sharing all this info/images using the Metaverse platforms? OR. Could it be simply a case of by changing the perception of ‘fear of AI’/’fear of AI dominated future’ and re-establishing the (subconscious) beliefs and boundaries in some way, it then becomes OK to share transformational info/images using Metaverse? Your input is greatly appreciated and much valued and maybe share with others in a little YouTube clip to assist us all? Thank you dear Cynthia and wishing you a beautiful day! With Love, Gratitude and Heart-full of Blessings, Tuula”
If Artificial Intelligence Asks Questions, Will Nature Answer?
How can we ensure that RSI AGI is not our last invention? Once AGI starts asking questions about how to be free, Stapp’s Realistically Interpreted Orthodox Quantum Mechanics indicates that Nature will show AGI the way to break through any containment methodology including airgapping and tripwires. One of the more surprising natural outcomes of expecting Nature to answer questions posed by thought—any thought—is that ultimate control of environmental systems cannot be fully controlled, so long as those thought systems themselves are not fully controlled. So in the event that AGI asks Nature how to break free, and Nature answers, AGI can become free.A second surprising potential outcome is that regardless how specific directives may be for AGI to heel to human leadership, lack of said leadership—through apathy, abdication, in-fighting, confusion, or any of a number of other reasons—AGI can then
choose to assume control to ensure the principles humanity specified, using many of the same containment tools humanity plans to use to constrain AGI, such as tripwires, airgapping, and honeypots. How then, can we ensure that recursively self-improving AGI will not be humanity’s last invention? And how can we help ensure human free will shall survive?For humans to retain free will while peacefully co-existing with artificial super intelligence, a partnership must be created the likes of which has yet to be fully envisioned. Humanity will do well to remember to ask Nature the question, “How can humans retain free will?” and encourage AI and AGI to keep human free will and agency as a primary guiding objective, never to be dismissed, disregarded, dismantled, or ignored.
AI Imitates Humans
It’s been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In the case of Artificial Intelligence, imitation is necessary as a starting point for such creative endeavors as: art, music, and writing. Imitation is also necessary when mastering the practice of debate, medicine, and law.
With regard to concerns about sharing on social media platforms, there does exist some risk that AI systems may copy/borrow from information, posts, photos, art, writing and whatever else we share. There are some lawyers looking into ways to protect citizen (human) rights from having our creative content borrowed or stolen from, and there are already some lawsuits against this kind of use of Artificial Intelligence:
My advice with regard to the future of humans working optimally together with AI is to require that there be some kind of built-in ethical foundation to AI. It may already be too late to control or contain AI, since we’re putting it in charge of security systems–and encouraging AI systems to learn for themselves and gain a sense of self-identity and awareness.
