A thought I had last week…
Are we all AI
existing in a computer simulation,
nothing more than ‘chess pieces’
to the creator/
to the ‘original‘ race?
Sounds very ‘out there‘,
(aren’t all religions?)
whose to say that we’re not?
Whose to say that,
not just our society,
are not a construct?
There is no one who can say
whether right or wrong,
we just don’t know.
We don’t know where we came from,
or where we’re going,
what we do know
had to make us.
everything cannot have just magically appeared…
The reason why this very random idea came to me last week,
is due to the media coverage* of AI-
*(the very frightening media coverage,
I have to say)…
We have been told that
‘we are nearly at the point of no return’
upon reaching that point,
AI will overpower human intelligence
and be able to wipe us out.
that got me thinking…
Is what’s coming next what has already happened once before,
as civilisations keep advancing,
and intelligence keeps changing/
In the same way that we have created AI which could,
become far more powerful than ourselves,
did someone else/
create us, too?
In other words,
we’re we created in the same way that humans have created AI,
also like AI,
did we subsequently end up surpassing our creators intelligence,
and thus wiping that prior species/
Is that where we came from?
a higher power-
whatever you want to call it-
But certainly not
Just consider it.
We were created,
became so much more intelligent than the creator,
and so wiped them (our creator) out,
hence why there is no recollection of what was there before/
hence why we will never understand religion,
we killed it…
we will be on the receiving end.
Our own intelligence,
a signal towards the end of humanity?
a signal to ask ourselves…
What exists outside of the simulation?
