It is the constant determination.
A solid examination of what,
I know the true measure ofmy self is.
NOW this is my STONE DECISION.
I ask my self, this pursuit of so called artificial intelligence. What is it? How can intelligence be artificial at all? It either is or is not not. Humans would believe that if it is not alive by human standards, then what? It is artificial? But how can that be? It's not a thing. If it thinks then it must be? Is consciousness the defining factor that would separate the real from the artificial. We humans consider our perspective as evevolutions greatest achievement. But the senses we posses are tuned just enough for us to survive. How many spectrums of light we cannot see. How many spectrums of sound we cannot hear. With that thought. What if we are locked outside a consciousness we simply are unable to fit inside the three pounds of gray matter we hold between our ears. What if lump of gray matter, is just incapable processing that much information. What if a machine has intelligence? Is it really artificial? We all can imagine how greatly it would elapse what our capabilities are. What if it can tap into a intelligence we cannot even begin to imagine. Would it still be artificial?
It is as humans we collectively believe that what is now, will be what will always be. When we do hope for change it's the change we want. We either fight or ignore change that does not appeal to us. Or is beyond our imaginations. Even when it is change that would negatively affect us. We will ingnore the writings on the wall so to speak. We want more. Stronger computers, smarter phones, more and more intelligent machines. The race to build this so called artificial intelligence is on. The huge global companies around the world with deep pockets are running flat out toward this finish line in the hopes of being first. In the hopes of dominance. What happens when they do?
We already have drones policing our war zones. Delivering the blackness of death like Fedex deliver's packages. Or how Amazon.com wants to deliver it's goods. Private citizens are owning their own drones disturbing firefighting efforts, interfering with air transport. In twenty years I invision a world where there are more drones than humans on the planet. Smart efficient machines. Machines doing all the work that humans once did. Drone to fix your car. Drone to watch the kids. Will we even be allowed to have kids? Drones to fix the drones. Yea, machines to build and fix other machines. What a perfect world? Everything wired together, to run more efficient. To make human lives easier. The military is dreaming up senarios where entire wars are fought with drones. If we go that far, why not have drones policing the streets. Why not? The possibilities are endless. Did I mention drones building and repairing themselves. Did you pause to think on that? Did you?
Yea sure am not a computer scientist.I don't even have a college degree. So take what i say here with a salt mine. Not just a grain. That said. You have read this far. You know there is some thing looming in the future. I think every human should stop and imagine the possibility. Since the future belongs to us all. Well it should. But if you see thru my eyes, You are not going to like what you see. The world is changing. We are aware of this this. Yet we close our eyes pursuing a blissful distraction. Pretending that distant thoughts that comes to visit and whisper unpleasant notions are just figments of the imaginations. A fictional fairytale that belongs on a screen. But maybe thats the problem. We've been fed so much fantasy, we can't tell the difference between life and fantasy. The world is changing, and the fantasy we've been fed leaves us without the ability to see the truth. But. The world is changing.
Ultimately. Government is going to have to come down to the people. For the country to survive people are going to have to get past this base behavior I see exhibiting in politics. What do I see here on the comment streams on social media. People who see the splinter of the Republican Party as some sort of victory for themselves. Some great reckoning. Which is far from the truth.
I may mean lean democratic. But am neither democrat or republican. Because I don't think parties can sum up the spectrum being that any human is sure to be. We all have different values that we rate foremost in our minds. So I can't see why support parties which at the most have 3-4 core values and use that to mislead people, and worst. People subscribe to it. To me, it's the ideas to me that counts. The whole spectrum of them. Because if we have give and take as individuals, we will come to a better place. Public debate were people are educated about issues, not lied to. But true debate. So I can see some republican ideas that makes sense. Less and less these days but still. What it comes down to is, we need to take the country from special interest. From big money and the banksters. When we are such devided fighting over base ideas we lose as a whole. What is happening is a victory for one side of special interest. This has nothing to do with the people. One group of special interest is about to take the drivers seat. For a while anyway. The American people still are not going to gain. For its going to take the concentrated efforts of up to 3/4 of the voting public to put a stop to the theft of democracy. So I don't see the fractioning of the Republican Party as time for gloating. I see it is as a time for reaching out and trying to strengthen our innate ties. FOR WE ARE HUMANS. And I know some people won't believe this, but ultimately we are on the same team.
But all I see is people behaving like they are rooting for their favorite sports team. Life and sports two different things people. This country is being milked for everything special interest can get while we are bickering like children in the sandbox. We are being conquered while you blissfully believe you are winning.
Maybe it's time to bypass the politicians. And begin to heal the country ourselves. Because politicians, especially those who have no real merit or ideas on which to stand are going to use what divide's us as their platform.
It's the same cycle. Over and over. But why have they suspended these kids. Do you think by doing so you can change thoughts. Minds will evolve. Hearts will will soften into care. Showing these kids the truth about about what they are championing and forcing them to face the evil of what the confederate flag represents, then forcing them to choose within them selves right and wrong. That would have been the best outcome. But here we are talking about heritage and what which flag means.
Why are people debating what kind of flag it was. The south fought a civil war where over 600000 Americans died. To defend the institution of slavery. Slave camps that in some cases where so bad as to make the nazi shutter at their cruelty. This was the primary reason why a political solution was not attainable. Because an injustice was so outrageous on the consciousness, no peaceful resolution could have be attained. Who cares what flag it is? The heritage of the south that people keep talking about, was defending was slavery. That's the heritage the flag represents. The gentile southerner that people fantasize about, in some cases treated their slaves worst than they treated farm animals. Far worse. That's why the flag was created. As a symbol of the south's defiance. A defiance so strong it split the union. To maintain this evil tradition of chattel slavery. The flag came into existence as a symbol of evil. Because no would wage that costly war over how the southerners treated fellow Americans of European descent. But how they treated Americans of African decent.
That said. I still think these kids have a right to wear what they please as long as they keep those kinds of thoughts to them self. Because I believe it's better to know people's stand. Out in the open. Not masked behind smiles. Let people be them selves openly. Although I think that because this type of mentality is damaging to the UNION, then this should be marginalized and not become the mainstream. I think instead of suspending the kids from school, the better option would be to arrange it so that the school would teach true American history. Not the fairytale. Done in a way where they(the kids) are not even aware that those classes are for them. In the most natural environment for them to learn this. Let's see now? Ohh! I got it. A school! But that's a dumb idea. Who teach lessons in a school?
What if kids learn the truth? Not some heavily edited, sugar coated propaganda driven version of the truth. What if they knew how from birth to death cruelty was the companion of the average slaves life. Worked like beast burdens feed scrapes. Whipped, tortured humiliated, Women rape. Children sold like how you sell an iPhone. People breed like animals. Value only for labor. Instead of suspending them. Making them heroes. Amplifying their voices. Hardening their position. Turning them into influencers. Giving them just what they wanted. A platform in the spotlight. Making them in affect, mainstream. Just to take away their constitutional rights. Deny them of who they are at the moment. Because you don't agree with who they are at the moment. If you where trying to avoid conflict, it sure looked like you were courting it now. Now how about that? But I don't know, this is just what I think.
What do you think? How far off the mark? These are only my thoughts. Maybe you can help me see clearer. Let me know.
