Is A.I. Leading Us To An End Game Or Our Expansion Of Consciousness?

The topic of A.I. has been bubbling away for the last 30/40 years in the mainstream since films like The Terminator 1 & 2 as well as 2001 Space Odyssey and recently in the more emotive film Her . All four films give us some insight into interaction with A.I. and of course different scenarios as to how the relationships are formed and in these stories dissolve. I believe we are reaching a point of no return with A.I. and it makes me question where it is taking us?

Could it be that A.I. provides us the means to work less and play more? Maybe A.I.’s productivity creates infinite abundance for society to thrive, meeting our basic needs and offering more opportunity to shine? Or is it possible, A.I. lacking empathy, see humanity and individuals alike as a cancer on the planet or a threat and acts to protect itself ?

I recently, while supporting myself working as a mobile barber, went to visit a customer who turned out to work for a rapidly growing tech company in London, specializing in A.I. I took this 30 minute appointment as an opportunity to ask a few questions, to someone certainly more in the know, then i am, about the latest developments. Y’know, the big philosophical and metaphysical questions that we all ponder in some way or another. I have a perception that is forever considering consciousness, so my kinda thought process for example is, how and why A.I. is being reflected in our collective consciousness? That is a question i will attempt to speculate a bit later.

So began to formulate a question by using the storyline of Terminator 2. The character that is in a way most relevant to this topic, is Miles Dyson. Miles is the character that reverse engineers the technology from the recovered parts of the first Terminator, in the first film, for a defense company Cyberdyne Systems and designs Skynet, the Artificial Operation System of the A.I. If you haven’t watched the film, then just feeling into the name of the film will give you an idea of where the story goes. My question then was, has there been something written into the A.I. program to stop a possible conflict between Man & Machine? Quite simply, the guy said no.

Really?? Now that is a scary thought.

I do not know the technology well enough to know whether A.I. will work from a Mother Brain through the global internet or if there will be independent networks and programs; however, the fact there is no procedures or fail safes written into their system(s) seems like an immature and unwise thing to ignore.

Ok, so if you didn’t already know, the T.V. film industry use predictive programming through media productions like films to feed our subconscious, which in turn is where we create our reality from, while we are metaphorically asleep. Films like these as well as disaster movies are created for us to dream a maccabe future that has been envisioned for us by some of this World most influential people; however, they aint your famous ones, they stay in the background, undetected.  That’s certainly what id do if i was a crazy, mega rich, narcissistic, xenophobe (xenophobe being someone scared of strangers) which by all accounts was a psychological trait written into HAL the A.I. computer system of 2001 Space Odyssey, Who goes on to try to exterminate the crew for jeopardizing the company’s mission. They use these TV “programs” to program the masses to dream their dream into reality. It is a very clever and manipulative weapon they use against us.

We have really let our guard down with this one i feel. We are being lead along a path we have no idea where we are going, or maybe we do.. disaster, if we manifest the predictive programming the movies want us to dream. If this tech smart engineer is saying there is no inbuilt failsafe to prevent A.I. from turning against us, we should all be very concerned. If the World was being guided by balanced, wakened beings with Earth & humanity’s well being the primary focus, id not be at all worried, but that clearly isn’t the case at the moment. You only need to open your eyes at any number of different global governance & industries to see their practices and positions that are testament to crimes against humanity. I feel we need to take a good look at where we truly want this World to go, because if we sit back, as society has done now for too long, we face possible forced, rapid changes, that few or us will want to see.

So i proceeded to share with this gentleman, and he did seem like a gentle man, an idea i came up with that could potentially safeguard the A.I. program for malfunction or acting apathetically. I suggested that, if it was possible, to model the A.I. program/personality on awakened being. A true and balanced human being. Someone who has directly experienced themselves as The All That Is, who recognises the interconnection with all life. Someone with complete and total compassion for each and everyone of us. Could the Motherbrain of A.I. be written, modeled or integrated by a Taoist master for example?  I believe this is the most sensible decision that can be applied to the evolution of A.I., certainly while humans are still in a position to influence it. I’m sure the speed of its evolution will be tremendous and something surely needs to be put in place if it can.

Now i would love to think there are conscious tech engineers who think like me who can champion this alignment between machine and spiritual evolution. I did work for some time at a Quantum Implant Technology company in the early 2000’s, where they produced silicone chips that are used in computers. I am aware that carbon and silicon are the only 2 organic elements in the periodic table. Which means, i believe, that silicone has the building blocks for life, like carbon provides for humans. Will that lead to a fully conscious live A.I.? The possibilities again are almost unimaginable in where it can go. This doesn’t mean is all bad, certainly not, i feel A.I. has the potential to reflect our expansion of consciousness, which is kinda answering the question i made a bit earlier. Just as silicone is the life of the machine, carbon is the life of 3D/4D humans. I believe as we refine our individual and collective consciousness, by aligning through a heart based compassionate society, with a real intention to heal, we will see an A.I. that will harmoniously interact with us and support us on that journey of expansion as a reflection of where we are going. If humanity fails to choose a conscious way to be, we could easily see A.I. reflect a disharmonious relationship with us that leads to fear and more battling to survive.

For me, it always goes back to and can be seen more clearly by looking at how and why something is being reflected in consciousness. From the issue of A.I. to why that Blackbird keeps landing on my window sill, to what is this karmic lesson repeating itself again and again? We can use our perception to see things more clearly and hopefully choose to act in ways which promote the qualities in life we want to see, ultimately spiritual growth.

I actually believe we can use the A.I. brain, with all its data mining on who we are, where we go etc. It is said that the machine now knows us individually ( in many respects) better then we know ourselves. It reads us, constantly taking on information, listening to how we are talking, who were talking to and what’s being said. We know its going on, you only need to have a conversation in your car with a friend and the next time your on youtube, that topic of conversation has a video in the recommended list in front of you. I believe though that we can use this information to our advantage. If we can create a A.I. program with life affirming qualities, we can work with the A.I. to form individual  coaching where the wisdom of The Way is incorporated into the personality profile and realignment program to support us in our healing and evolution.

This tech guy i had the appointment with, said companies were looking at implanting microchips into our brains as a alternative memory/information source. I am not so sure about literally merging with A.I. like that. It is likely and very possible if it hasnt already been done. Which ever way the technology leads us, i feel its important we work alongside the machine and install in it, the qualities that represent a humanity that we actually still need to embody. What nees to happen first? At least if A.I. is modelled on a high buddhist priest, who had embodied those qualities, maybe we can use A.I. to spread that wisdom out to the World.

I remain an optimist for i believe in the power of the human heart. I’m yet to see the power of A.I.’s development fully; however if it can be modelled to serve humanity through the wisdom of the master beings on Earth today, then we should do everything we can to make that happen. By living our life as we wish for others, maybe we will see a reflective A.I. that elevates us as we elevate A.I.

Equal Value Payment System

theallthatislogo

I wish to share with you some insights i received recently about how to manage the turbulent World of business by fairly charging payment for my services as someone who is self employed. If you are a holistic practitioner or teacher/facilitator, for example, then likely there has been a point during your path where you have questioned how much to charge for what you offer. A charge that is fair, affordable and plentiful for all concerned. In this piece i also share some of my experiences trying out different payment structures and conscious outlooks.

As i approached the question, how much to charge? Many other questions began to be asked.. Do i charge an hourly rate? How much per hour? I wouldn’t charge per hour for a day retreat so how much for a day retreat at a fixed cost? Do i charge an hourly rate at a group class? How much? Lots of possibilitites and lots of variables. If i aim high for an expensive retreat, im making it exclusive to those who can afford it. If i set it too low, do i make enough money out of it with the amount of guests that can participate? I have found these descisions challenging to settle on something i am happy with.

Having set up and run a independent yoga and meditation retreat center in Mexico, i know very well this play between wanting to provide a affordable service for everyone and bringing in enough abundance to be sustainable & comfortable. We very quickly (my partner & i at the time), chose to offer what’s called a conscious donation payment where each participant in the retreat would take the teachings and at the end, offer a sum that was affordable and/or which reflected how valuable they felt the retreat was for them. It was a beautiful way to approach that open-hearted project and many local Mexicans took on the teachings that quite likely wouldn’t have taken if we charged a fixed price. This was great; however what we found was we were not receiving enough in donations to cover all of our living and business costs. Either people weren’t able to offer more or they wanted to get it as cheap as possible. Hmmmm.

When we opened, i took on some teachings relating to the heart and manifestation that i feel is of importance that affected how we approached how we charged our retreats and to whom. It basically stated that when we offer something, like a retreat, a session or our services, it is most harmonious when we offer that from a place of detachment, as a gift. When we gift our services from the heart, we cultivate a openness for the universe to provide for us what we need or more (it is suggested not to put a limit on what the universe wishes to provide you, hence the open conscious donation we started with); however we were seemingly blocked by the energy of money or our relationship to it because w ehad many issues regarding abundance while setting up the center and daily living. There was no surprise to see a manifestation of this in the business, resulting in small donations or little attendance. This can be a tricky place to be, wanting to offer donations out of the goodness of the heart yet creating opportunities in which karmic lessons play out that we “need” to see, for example, through a relationship to self worth or abundance. We struggled a lot with this because we really resonated with providing retreats that everyone could attend if they had the desire to do so but it created a uncomfortable feeling of insecurity when attendances or donations were low. All of this was a learning curve and extremely reflective of where i was & we were, at the time.

During the last year we were at the center, we tried added in a fixed price, advertising our retreats on international websites that specifically catered for yoga and meditation retreats. This balanced a beautifully sweet offering for the local Mexicans, with a clear set price for travelling guests. This worked very well. We were able to offer a very good price for 3,7 to 11 day retreats to the international guests and that provided us with the cash flow to continue to offer conscious donation to the locals. This seemed more equal, to charge those that had Dollars to spend more and provide low costs for the locals. In fact we were even accepting exchange with food for the retreat and some money for those that had little to offer. If felt great to receive people who gave what they genuinely could, even if it wasn’t paying our bills.

So having those experience gave me plenty of opportunities to look at and feel into the different ways to charge for services as well as my own relationship to abundance. Now having returned to England to start new projects, the same dilemma appeared. How do i charge fairly my services in the UK, without putting a limit on what the universal abundance wants to share with me? After discussing this with a friend who has been a holistic healer since the 1980’s. She suggested an idea that she had considered for many years yet had never implemented… The idea is, that each person who takes a session, donates for each hour of service, their hourly rate that they earn, creating a horizontal and fair payment system. Each participant honours your work as equal to their own. This way you get paid what everyone else gets paid. If they work at Tesco, they pay their hourly rate, which is always relatively the same as a director who gets paid 3,4 or 10 times as much. This way everyone gives in relation to their own abundance, value and worth. So the same service is valued by the value of the clients own value of their time. Same/Same.. Just as it actually is, we are all the same so why not get paid the same? If they do not give the same as their own hourly wage, they will be sending out some clear messages to the universe about how much they value themselves over others.

When i heard this idea, i felt a deep sense of equality & alignment with a true horizontal value system. This is after all what we want in a transitioning World, out of extreme contrasts of income to a fair, equal and honourable payment/donation system. Of course i do not feel this can be applied to everyday commerce and industry, certainly not yet; however for those self employed in the service industry, regardless if it is holistic or not, it can be a true levelling to a horizontal value payment structure that feels right on both sides, for the facilitator as well as the client.

Since trialing this with clients, i have had a 100% positive response, so much so that it became part of the discussion during the sessions because they were all so amazed by and comfortable with this approach. Each one of them felt it was a fair and positive system and they each paid me what they earn for each hour i was facilitating them. It is important i feel to highlight to everyone the value they put on their health, wellbeing and self development. By offering an amount that is of value to you, you send out a message to the universe that you are committed to self improvement whilst at the same time honouring the work of the practitioner. This is the magic and mirroring of eachother that creates a horizontal playing field that life thrives on.

Another way to offer conscious payment systems is to make a suggested donation, so that the participants have an idea of a considered, sufficient price for their wage bracket. With this model, you suggest a low income, standard income & high income price. This i also like because a) it gives people an idea figure that otherwise might not have a clue as to how much to offer & b) it provides the participant the opportunity to reflect on their income and truthfully give from a place of ability. I feel this works very well for charging for retreats that are days long and may be more rounded then charging per hour.

Feel into the work you offer and the clients you receive and whether one of these can apply to your project. When you implement a flexible payment system like this, you can comfortably suggest this to everyone, from every walk of life because you know it is fair. For me, it brought a feeling of contentment and equality id not felt before. If someone can pay equally for the experience in hours as they charge themselves, they are dropping the hierarchy and ego-inflation that can come with high rolling, successful, sometimes lucky, people.

We can learn some very important lessons in how we value ourselves and each other. The sooner we align to these “New Earth” harmonics, the sooner we can heal the distortions of the capitalist regime and live in peace, abundance & equality for all.

If you found this information uplifting, exciting or enlightening, please share this page far and wide so everyone who can apply this Equal Value Payment System, does.
