  1. The google guy seems a bit of a loon. Although of course this could be some sort of psyop. Google the most powerful search engine no doubt has connects with the CIA or whatever powers be.
    Whatever it is i have thought about this too. If an AI where made that was smarter than the smartest humans it would basically be a god. This could be the religion that replaces the abarhamic ones.
    Why pray to yahweh when the great AI god can conjure anything into existence with nano bots?
    The problem i see is what if the AI isnt so kind, like yaweh. An angry and vengeful god who wants you to live in fear. Now that i think about it more do you think the gnostics are building this AI to defeat the demiurge?
    If this guy is going to form a religion it has to have teachings, morality, it has to offer people something to overcome suffering or sin. To have community.
    I dont expect some spiritually decayed silicon vally soy boy to grasp that.
    They probably have some sort of yearning to cleanse themselves of their materialist nihilism that occurred in humanity when god was declared dead.
    Or maybe they are just ego maniacs that want money and bitches.

    By the way apparently Charles Manson is on his death bed, something to watch.

    I think the end goal of things like mass surveillance, smart cities, stuff like that. Its the managerlist wet dream. its 1984, big brother watching you at all times, listening, you cant escape it.

    1. Ancient Gnostic Seers gave a clear distinction between the 'Pleroma'(Godhead) and the 'Demiurge'(the celestial 'error')
      They warned about the 'false creation' this Demiurge created, and then trapped 'divine sparks'(us, humanity, those with a 'soul') into.
      Why?
      So we would worship 'it' as "GOD".
      Also to feed off our essence which powers this 'reality' itself.
      It is frightening and outright pathetic that 'AI' is being proposed as a possible 'creator' of the 'Godhead'.
      Clearly this is a very dangerous endeavor being proposed.
      Far better four us to realize our own inherent divine spark which forever connects us to the "Originator"(GOD).
      I fear for humanity if this comes to fruition.

  2. I'm sure you've read Kurzweil and The Singularity. Positing that humans will merge with AIs in the somewhat near future, before 2050 I believe. It's natural to want to improve yourself as humans, but as or if when this starts happening, obviously we will see a stratification of human society again, between those who do the "upgrades" and those who opt not to. They would have Narcissistic Personality Disorder on steroids basically. I think Kurzweil's book was originally entitled with Spiritual Machines in the title. Okay fine, spiritual machines, but to heaven or hell?

  3. Chris, This is the scene that really reminded me of your previous post and now this one. Neolutionists also want to merge with technology. https://io9.gizmodo.com/orphan-black-and-the-tail-of-the-transhumanist-nightc-503707743
    Felix heads into the club looking for Paul and talks his way in, dropping Olivier's name to the silver-haired, one white-eyed hostess (obviously a Freaky Leekie). "You're not familiar with Neolutionism?" she asks. And Felix, in what is perhaps his best line in the series, deadpans, "Oh, there's an ism." She gives Felix the whole Neolution spiel and touts her…enhancements. Oh, and Olivier apparently has a tail.

  5. The actor, Matt Frewer who played Dr. Aldous Leekie in "Orphan Black" (2013-2017) and Berlinghoff Rasmussen in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "A Matter of Time" (1991) was also Max Headroom.
    https://tv.avclub.com/max-headroom-the-wiseass-ai-who-hacked-his-way-into-am-1798253336
    Not long after C-3PO and R2-D2’s scene-stealing turns as the Bert and Ernie of the Star Wars universe, wise-cracking artificial intelligence became a standard feature of science-fiction film and television. Short Circuit had El DeBarge-loving military ’bot Johnny Five, Knight Rider introduced droll Trans Am KITT, and who can forget Rutger Hauer as that barrel of laughs who saw attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, Roy Batty? (Okay, maybe not that last one.) But they all paled in comparison to Max Headroom (Matt Frewer), a chattering combination of prosthetics, post-production monkeying, and screen-saver-worthy animations. In the mid-to-late ’80s, the glitchy talking head in the Klaus Nomi threads became ubiquitous through sheer versatility: He was a VJ, the face of New Coke, and, for 14 episodes broadcast on ABC between 1987 and 1988, the namesake character of a cyberpunk thriller set in a dystopian future where it’s illegal to turn off a TV.

  11. So by Elon's own reasoning, we should submit to "possession"? That's encouraging...But probably not at all surprising for those who have been following this subject for a while:

    http://www.conspiracyschool.com/blog/global-mind-transhumanism-freemasonry-and-internet-god

    Quote:

    "This agenda begins with the founders of Rosicrucianism, the sorcerer John Dee and Francis Bacon, who is credited with introducing the scientific method which opened the way for the Scientific Revolution. Most of the leading scientists of Western history have been secretly adherents of the occult, including Isaac Newton, who was a member of the Royal Society, and Benjamin Franklin, a Freemason and member of the Hellfire Club.

    This vision of the transformative power of science has been married to the Kabbalistic idea of progress, which is deemed to provide the basis for man’s evolution towards becoming a more “perfect” being. As explained in The Meaning of Masonry, by W.L. Wilmshurst:

    This—the evolution of man into superman—was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries, and the real purpose of modern Masonry is, not the social and charitable purposes to which so much attention is paid, but the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality. And this is a definite science, a royal art, which it is possible for each of us to put into practice, whilst to join the Craft for any other purpose than to study and pursue this science is to misunderstand its meaning.

    Later in the book, Wilmshurst further explains:

    Man who has sprung from earth and developed through the lower kingdoms of nature to his present rational state, has yet to complete his evolution by becoming a god-like being and unifying his consciousness with the Omniscient—to promote which is and always has been the sole aim and purpose of all Initiation.

    Transhumanism represents the Masonic aim of assisting humanity in evolving to merge with a “cosmic consciousness”, an idea first proposed by the American Transcendentalists, and American psychologist William James, a member of Blavatsky’s Theosophical Society. The term first coined by Richard Maurice Bucke, a Canadian psychiatrist, in his 1901 book, Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind. James understood “cosmic consciousness” to be a collective consciousness, a “larger reservoir of consciousness,” which manifests itself in the minds of men and remains intact after the dissolution of the individual. It may “retain traces of the life history of its individual emanation.”

    As Chris has stated before, this goes WAY back. & the transhumanist crowd are the first to admit it. Its amazing how many of the movers & shakers in the movement cite Sumeria & the Epic of Gilgamesh as inspiration:

    https://nickbostrom.com/papers/history.pdf

    & yeah, this has all gone mainstream with a vengeance. We're on the fast track now--last place I thought I'd see mention of this:

    http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/metrospiritual-creating-super-humans-transhumanism-article-1.3365635

    Impressed that they brought up the human genome project in this context:

    Quote:

    "Scientists from the Human Genome project say that our DNA was not written on this planet and is a complex mathematical code. What if we have the ability to upgrade, but haven't in a while because we didn't know that we even could?"

    & lest we forget, the Freemasons had a HUGE role to play in the Human Genome Project:

    1. Everything you quoted is a huge misunderstanding of those spiritual teachings. It has nothing to do with technology or 'trans-humanism'. It's about human beings becoming more in touch with the spiritual or 'The One/God'. A lot of the religions teach that there was once a golden age where man was in touch with god/the gods/spirit and as time went on we became 'disconnected' from god/gods/spirit and eventually humans will 're-connect' with god/spirit; a return of the gods/golden age. Conspiracy theorists take things like this and completely twist them to make them fit their own beliefs.

    2. And "Conspiracy theorist" is a derogatory term used by shills to derail discussion.

    3. They are a conspiracy theorist if they have no evidence or what they are presenting as 'evidence' is actually just them misunderstanding or twisting things to make it fit their theory.

  12. IMHO, the Human Genome Project was always about Eugenics 2.0:

    https://www.newswithviews.com/guest_opinion/guest40.htm

    Quote:

    "Today, Galton's agenda of biological totalitarianism has resurfaced as the World Transhumanist Association. However, equipped with nanotechnology and genetic engineering, this movement presents a technologically augmented form of eugenics. Richard Hayes, executive director of the Center for Genetics and Society, elaborates:

    Last June at Yale University, the World Transhumanist Association held its first national conference. The Transhumanists have chapters in more than 20 countries and advocate the breeding of "genetically enriched" forms of "post-human" beings. Other advocates of the new techno-eugenics, such as Princeton University professor Lee Silver, predict that by the end of this century, "All aspects of the economy, the media, the entertainment industry, and the knowledge industry [will be] controlled by members of the GenRich class... Naturals [will] work as low-paid service providers or as laborers..." (Hayes, 2004)."

  13. I don’t believe they will ever be able to create true AI. All of these stories sound like they are trying to make us believe, because they want this to be true so desperately. Cut a person off from the spiritual, feed them poison and contol them with fear, and it becomes easy to mimic “human” thought. They will never be able to replicate the union between the spiritual and the animal. They are out of answers and they don’t want you to know. The more obvious the theatrics become, the more I’m convinced they are worried because things aren’t working like they used to.

    2. Yeah, most of this stuff appears to be fancy neural networks combined with huge processing power. Clever, but not the breakthrough people assume.

      Is funny because many pundits thought AI was going to hit in the 1990s with Japan winning via their 'Fifth Generation' machines. This article is a good summary:

    3. Indeed. The idea that AI can be used to grant access to "cosmic consciousness" and a god-like evolved human is absurd. It's an electro-mechanical parlor trick based on data scraping bits and pieces of humans and the universe and then crunching numbers. All you get is a data-driven simulacra of "consciousness" with no soul or love, since those things will be omitted as being among the unquantifiable. What could possibly evolve from such an impotent simulacra? Seems more a dead-end.

    2. Okay. They do not even get that one thing right:
      "No law and politics". But their "first parliamentary elections have begun". Yeah makes total sense.

      FYI - the advent of "law and politics" was no different from 'the new AI religion'. It's just the same shit, and: "There is an inherent contradiction in creating a deity (of artificial intelligence) and then worshipping it."

      How incredibly dumb must one be to not spot that?

      How mindblowingly stupid to even imagine a travesty like "gods"? Whether it's one, an entire pantheon, or the most insidious "we're all gods"...

      What happened??

      For millions of years everything was just fine without all that crap. And now, almost in the blink of an eye, it's all being ruined, and no one even seems to remember what A LIFE really is. Probably because it's "too painful to face the truth".... No it's not, it is the single best thing you can ever do for yourself and everything else. Now that you still CAN...

      (But who will pick the cotton?? Who will build the roads?? Well, who WANTS roads?! Who NEEDS them?! We NEVER did.)


      Withdrawing from the system is the only moral choice that can be made. Resisting the system is indeed FUTILE, since it only empowers the system. Withdrawal of your every support however is different, and it is good for YOU, everything else, and the only thing that can cause the madness to end. The madness depends on you, not the other way round.

      Delete
    3. Remember that the resistance is written into the program as much as anything else
      Its like that in any religion. And certainly in the cult of cults.
      So. Withdraw. Unplug. Walk. At the first opportunity you see. Meanwhile prepare yourself for doing so.

  18. Sometimes i remember the Kult roleplaying game, in which the Demiurge is "dead" and the Archons are fighting for our domain. There are portals there going to "Metropolis", The original city in which our reality are only a piece of it. In the game Malkuth is the one trying to helps us awake, and there ir presented to ways to free ourselves from the control, one is to enlighten, and the other is to go totally dark and embrace our beast. But maybe that sounds too binary? Also, in Metropolis there are areas where the machines have the control... so who put them there? as in the setting they are not our creation. This post made me want to cut myself from the grid, but the grid is how i found you, and everyone posting here.... its getting pretty weird, and sometimes i thank that i live in a really farway place, where everything hits later (but now that doesnt sound so good either...)

  20. I'm not surprised by any of this. Surprised it took so long before some tech guru type registered an AI church. Whether we are talking a true believer here, or a cynical tactic to avoid taxes for whatever funds this guy hopes to collect, I don't know. Not necessarily mutually exclusive notions.

    Thing is AI will always be 'weak' (as it is currently), in the scientific sense, not 'strong', that is we will never have self-aware computers, conscious robots. It's just SF dreams, and always will be, to think otherwise. There will never be thinking machines, it's just not possible. Roger Penrose's 'The Emperor's New Mind' remains a tour de force here. And it exposes the delusion of strong AI more than any work that has ever been written, and probably ever will be. The belief in strong AI goes hand in hand with scientific materialism and scientific reductionism, and yet some of the biggest critics of scientific materialism buy into the (non-existent) plausibility of not only an agenda, but a delusion rooted in scientific reductionist delusions. And fail to see the contradiction.

    People are very impressed by the exponential growth of computing power and the pervasiveness of the 'grid' (as am I), but this exponential growth in information processing, transmission of data etc. gets us no nearer to machine self-awareness, not even the 'consciousness' of a worm or an amoeba.

  21. In the biblical book of Revelation chapter 13 the author speaks of "the image of the beast", a not human representation of the Anti-Christ that will arise during the last days. It speaks, thinks and demands worship on pain of death. Fascinating that this book written so long ago seems to be describing A.I. or possibly a transhuman.
