Artificial intelligence or A.I. is a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers. It is also the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior.
It is easy to get lost in what the media or Hollywood portrays artificial intelligence to be. There is a plethora of movies that are set in the distant future where killer machines turn the world into a post-apocalyptic waste land. Where the machines are created by mankind and they somehow develop a mind of their own. Now no one can stop the machines unless they embark on a treacherous journey to the center of whatever is controlling them and essentially destroying it. Something straight out of movies like The Terminator, The Matrix, or I, Robot.
Artificial intelligence has contributed to the improvement of various issues faced in modern society today. Some of those issues related to productivity, data management, and even healthcare. A.I. can be molded for individuals to easily operate. A.I. can also automate routine processes and in return make individuals more productive towards other responsibilities in their job. When a job requires accuracy and precision these systems, compared to a human, will commit fewer errors or eliminate them. Although it can also be perceived as a negative influence to society as well. A.I. has caused high unemployment in numerous sectors and will continue to reduce employment opportunities. Some of the other cons to artificial intelligence is the fact it can be inaccurate and lack improvement. It is created by humans and therefore cannot be perfect.
Some experts do not believe artificial intelligence is likely to display human emotions such as love or hate so there is no reason it would become good-natured or malicious. But what happens when an A.I. is programmed for something dangerous? Or when it is programmed for something beneficial but develops a destructive method to complete its goal? How do we stop it then? These are some of the scenarios where A.I. would become a liability. A super-intelligent A.I. will be extremely efficient at accomplishing its goals, and if those goals are not aligned with ours, we have an issue. Perhaps this scenario is likely to never happen, but it is all a possibility. If this was to be our fate in the near future or not, A.I. is already making an impact in our society today. It may also cause an imbalance in society. What will happen when a certain group of individuals have control over this technology and others do not? It will cause a hierarchy and an imbalance that may lead to conflict. The changes that A.I. brings to society are up to the individual to interpret as beneficial or not.
What happens when A.I. or technology merges with humans? With biological beings… Transhumanism – a philosophical movement that advocates for the transformation of the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellect and physiology. The elites are wanting to be immortal, wanting to download your consciousness into a computer. Some consider this as modern-day eugenics. A big advocate for this was Jeffrey Epstein. Today we can see Elon Musk with Neuralink. If we are so afraid of A.I., why do we keep wanting to give in to it instead of fighting it? Why do we keep fueling the fire but then talk against it?
“With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon.” Elon musk is one of the most influential minds of the 21st century. Elon has expressed his fear of A.I. and the risks associated with it as well as Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, and many other big names in science and technology. “Unless we learn how to prepare for, and avoid, the potential risks, AI could be the worst event in the history of our civilization. It brings dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many.”
On another note, what if technology or computers were created to worship other entities? Perhaps even Satan? Charles Babbage, one of the fathers of modern-day computing, wondered if the existence of God and paranormal phenomena could be proven scientifically… so he started by trying to summon the Devil. This is one of the most influential individuals for the computer as we know it today. Perhaps that’s too farfetched but WWW is 666 in Hebrew through the practice of gematria, the alphanumeric code of assigning a numerical value to a name. The first Apple computer was $666.66. Coincidence? I don’t know… Google’s quantum computer was named Sycamore. Sycamores in general are known for their longevity. But with these sorts of things you must pay attention to the symbolism. In folklore the Sycamore tree back in ancient Egyptian times, connected the worlds between the dead and the living. Also, this great tree stands at the eastern gate of heaven which releases the sun to rise each morning. Odd connection, but a connection, nonetheless.
Oh, so what you say? Let us take it a step further down the rabbit hole. Let us talk about D-Wave System’s Geordie Rose. This man, while wearing a shirt with the Ouroboros symbol on it which is an ancient symbol of a snake or serpent eating its own tail, talks about “aliens” that can be summoned using quantum computing. He compares these “aliens” to Lovecraft’s “great old ones.” If you have never investigated Lovecraft's work, the “great old ones” are not benevolent entities. He continues to state: “the same way that you don’t care about an ant, is the same way they are not gonna care about you and these things that were summoning into the world now are not demons, they are not evil, but they are more like the Lovecraftian old ones.”
These are things I think about every day as we approach this singularity. I am afraid of what will happen once we do merge with machines. I believe as human beings we are not meant to live forever. We worry about over population. How would the singularity affect that? At this point in time that I am writing this, COVID-19 is rampant in the world. Thousands of people are dying because of this foreign disease to us. It might as well be extraterrestrial at this point because we cannot figure it out. Perhaps if we were cyborgs, we would not have to deal with disease anymore but what if the A.I. wipes us out like how David did at the end of Alien: Covenant?
On this episode, we go deep into the technological singularity, A.I., and Jeffrey Epstein with Metta World Thief. We dive into some of the controversies surrounding quantum computing. We connect the dots between Epstein’s research and funding towards the transhumanism movement. We also tried to stay on topic but obviously it goes off the rails halfway through… enjoy the ride cause it gets wild!
