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.

Awen.

 

The Relationship Between Productivity & Stillness

zen city stones

In our busy day to day lives, we are being called to be more productive. Whether that is at work, as part of the family or maybe through some personal or social interest as a way to efficiently create fluid systems or we can say progress, which benefit our lives. That is, after all the idea of collective evolution right, progress? How can this be achieved whilst maintaining healthy balanced beings to expand their abilities productivity and state of being, instead of overloading us with the “more work-less time” mentality of the modern age.

Lets define productivity first.

Productivity. the state or quality of producing something.

Now with this in mind, Let us consider “the state” we are in when we are producing, whatever it is, we are engaged in. The state of being is very important when we are in the process of creating something, whether that be an assessment for the boss, painting a picture, cooking our food or connecting with a loved one. In all these instances and in every instant, whether you are aware you are creating something or not, the state of being we are in is going to affect our productivity and the World we experience around us. For example, you are at work and someone just told you your car has been towed away. You may be feeling very angry, you can not get the car til you have finished your day. At this point you continue with your tasks. Most likely, your mind is going to be very active and not focused on your creation and even if there is focus, how much has this incident affected your state of being and your productive abilities? Likely, your productivity will go down, or as the statement suggests, the quality of the production will go down..  This is important then, that we become aware of these moments and look to shift from these negatively influential states of being to positively affect our productivity. Actively promoting the well being-ness of our staff, loved ones and anyone else for that matter is obvious, right?

How do we remain centered to allow the productivity to flow?

This is where stillness comes in…

Without jumping on the need to sit in lotus meditation position, burn incense and chant Harri Om 108 time, the ability for us to find moments in our day to simply become still. We know from moments in our lives when something stressful has happened and the need to walk out of the door for 5 minutes and take yourself away from that situation, this can be seen as a natural response which more often then not helps to calm the state of being. When we apply this to becoming still for some time, the same disconnection from that trigger can take place. Its almost like we are unplugging from the energy or situation at hand that is causing us disharmony. We can all likely connect to our Mother’s or Father’s advice to breath when we have hurt ourselves or we are very upset.. this is linking us back to our center. By breathing consciously and particularly by remaining still, we are able to detach and find the inner peace and silence within where those difficult moment fade away.

When we hear the word stillness we immediately think of it as the opposite of movement – but stillness is something quite different altogether. Stillness is an energetic quality of being. I read recently a very beautiful metaphor to describe the qualities and benefits of stillness. It goes like this…

Imagine a glass full of water scooped up from a puddle in a field. It’s muddy and swirling around – rather like our daily lives, full of activity and messiness and life! But if you put that glass of water down and let it sit, it clears itself. STILLNESS allows the dirt to settle to the bottom and the water to clear.

This description of the murky water settling is a perfect example of the clarity and state of being stillness brings. the murky water, after experiencing stillness, can be seen as the running mind, stirred up, active and unsettled. When we allow ourselves time to be still, to be, we create space for clear perspectives to arise, new ideas to emerge, new ways to approach our lives. Even for a few minutes a day, or moments between activities, closing the eyes and going within can re-balance us. You can do this in the office lift or waiting for the train or the first and last 10 minutes between sleeping. This is where we reset ourselves, freeing ourselves from the past and not caring about the future, which are of mental projections. The stillness brings us into the Now, which is the only moment you have ever experienced. Every moment you have ever experienced, has been in the Now moment and this is where stillness takes us – to presence.

For me the three main benefits of stillness are –

*The ability to connect to my true essence, my center. Living from the inside out. In presence.

*The clarity and peace of mind it brings, where new ideas spring forth.

*The detachment from doing.

If we can learn to become human beings instead of the humans doing the majority of people are participating in, in today’s society, we can find the complimentary balance between productivity and stillness. Where we can acknowledge the benefits stillness brings to our productivity, we can create a higher quality of state of being, which will be reflected in our quality of production and the World we experience around us.

“Wisdom requires the discerning, the listening to, the acknowledgement of nudges and notions, of senses and sensations, of the minute and what we often mistakenly assume is the  mundane. Wisdom means listening to the still, small voice, the whisper that can be easily lost in the whirlwind of busyness, expectations, and conventions of the world.” Jean M. Blomquist
