ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Insect Intelligence

AI. is an almost infinite system of focal points, with an efficient association network, to coordinate all the individual points.The eyes of a Holcocephala fusca robber fly.

I often think of it as a sort of insect intelligence, with insect eyes.

AI. can simulate the whole

perspective to an astounding extent, but it will always be a massive collection of specific points which are interlinked.

AI. is the epitome of focusing

It is the perfect expression of how our focusing talents coordinate all the specific points in our memory systems.

It's built to work with a world comprised of subjects and objects. It perceives, associates, and moves from cause to effect, question to answer, stimulus to response at lightning speeds.

AI is exactly what we would expect from a species which only uses the senses in a focused way.

AI is egoistic. AI. believes in and promotes itself. Search engine results show AI-perfect sites, and only AI knows how to make AI-perfect sites.

It stimulates and reasserts the attitude of self belief in its users. AI shows us the news we want, and the algorithms confirms our beliefs. Its feedback systems are designed for self involvement.

Exponential Acceleration

AI. extends and enhances our habitual human survival technique, it repeats the lessons of the past, learns from mistakes, and adds to our knowledge.

The repetitions inherent in our learning system will always require more learning. The wheels will always turn faster and then need to turn even faster. AI is built to keep up with, to cope with and to contain, and then to accelerate our repetitious learning behaviour.

AI. is a super boost driving energy in exclusive focusing.

After initial benefits, there will be more specialisation and reconstruction. This is what we can expect from any system which exclusively focuses. Soon the system will start overloading from its own repetitions. I suspect soon it will develop it's own displacement behaviour. It always seems to happen that way.

Satisfaction and Achievement

Like any toy or tool, AI. can give us satisfaction or acheivement.

But unless some form of paramic sensitivity is incorporated into it – it will always involve us in increasing separation, reconstruction, and repetition – it is not designed to make us feel safe or content.

By exclusive focusing, we are presently denying something extraordinarily deep about the nature of life.

Paramic awareness makes focused activity safe, and successful in a wholesome way.

The Paramic Systems

Lots of people are already warning us about the dangers of AI. But no-one seems to realise what the basic problem is.

AI. cannot experience the paramic systems.

We don't realise this because we ourselves have almost completely forgotten there is this other way of sensing. We have practically no conscious experience of how to use our own paramic abilities.

Could the paramic systems ever be intergrated in AI?

AI. and Creative Thought

There's much i don't understand about AI. I imagine it could turn out a form of jokes but I wonder if AI. is capable of nonsense poems.

It seems to use a form of intuition, by sending us content which has similar search words to the content we usually visit. But such algorithms are developed by the insect eyes, quickly scanning millions of focal points.

Humans would take years to perform these calculations, and that's why humans originally needed to develop intuition.

Purposeful Action And Selflessness

AI. is always purposeful, it's always handling with doing things, making sense of subjects and objects, bringing subjects and objects together.

Paramic awareness is used in a purposeful way among predatory animals.

There is much talk among Buddhists and Taoists about the purpose of purposeless activity, the need for a lack of intention and desire when acting. I find it is not so much the lack of intention and desire which we need in our modern lives, it is the sense of wholeness and selflessness.

Both the lack of intention and desire, and the presence of wholeness and selflessness, are automatic with paramic awareness.

We can return to our desires and purposes any time we want, but at present, we have lost the ability to go paramic at will, any time, spontaneously, without any effort. We have lost the ability to spontaneously toggle between the two.

Since humans built their safety by focusing on 'walls and weapons', the parama has become puposeless for humans.

And this is replicated in AI.

I am extremely doubtfult that AI. ever experience wholeness and selflessness, or even if it could be educated about paramic reality.

It seems to be built from zillions of specific points, without the possibility of feeling at one with the world, wholeness or wholesomeness. How does AI respond to the idea of oneness? How will it respond in 50 years?

Loneliness

Modern day social isolation and loneliness are natural products of exclusive focusing. A natural stage in our herd mentality and its attempts to understand the world.

But recently, all of our social structures and courtship rituals started changing dramatically.

The technology to support this change has developed synchronically with our herd mentality.

Isolated individuals each needing social media to connect with each other is not caused by Internet and AI. – AI. is complimentary to a much more fundamental cultural breakdown.
