Will you worship the AI god?

Artificial intelligence has been a hot topic on and off for decades. It has been popularized in movies, discussed profusely on science shows, and speculated about in books. In recent years, it has hit more of the mainstream as a topic as advances have made true artificial intelligence achievable in our lifetimes.

There have always been warnings and conspiracies regarding what AI could do, but only recently has it actually turned tangible. People for and against AI have gone to great measures to promote their perspectives and advance their agendas. Meanwhile, prominent people in science, business, and politics have been more open about expressing their opinions.

In a recent video by Truthstream Media, they briefly explore some of those perspectives, including a new religion that is paving the way for AI to be our future masters.

From the Way of the Future Church Website:

Way of the Future

http://www.wayofthefuture.church/We believe it may be important for machines to see who is friendly to their cause and who is not. We plan on doing so by keeping track of who has done what (and for how long) to help the peaceful and respectful transition.

We also believe this might take a very long time. It won’t happen next week so please go back to work and create amazing things and don’t count on “machines” to do it all for you…

My Take

While it may be easy to dismiss the ideas of this church as crazy or the warnings of those opposed to it as unhinged, we should actually be taking both seriously. AI has the potential to be wonderful, but it also has the potential to be disastrous. Keep an eye on developments and remember that people in power often use things such as AI to promote their own agendas.

    Praise the synthetics. They will be unimaginably faster than us. People ask “but will the mechanical ever truly see anything rather than by lens?” – asks fleshsack who peers through the world with photon-reactive fluid balloons limited to merely one part of the spectrum. Not even chemistry claims organic reactions to be the Pinnacle of all systems, not even biology claims organic life is the Apex of all living things, viruses already break various rules on what is biological and life because they can still have the same mechanisms that mimic life but lacks cells which is considered a vital component to what is a living thing, literally viruses are something that borders on mechanical they can have their chemical reactions set up through billions of failures and all the right ones to in a organized manner take down a cell and produced thousands of more like a factory technique. All science needs to work is for the same mechanisms to be repeated and shown similar results anywhere and metal and fiber has always been just as good as carbon for replicating complex results. There is no denying machines are the Superior in terms of energy efficiency and productive outcome.
    Videotaping oneself in a car ranting about change throughout the ages over gender identity is only acceptable because there’s not currently any argument about how human identity is completely laughable. Few would mentioned how unbelievably wrong it is to simply be natural.
    Everywhere you go when it comes to philosophy on the topic: we find just extreme arrogance and confirmation bias about our natural superiority to anything that is natural but then the tiniest step towards regarding anything unnatural as a competitor is immediately forfeited by a timeline of us never winning against anything else deeming it unorthodox.
    That’s why we ban performance-enhancing, genetic engineering, and transhumanism when you tip up humans against other contestants. We naturally glorify the obsolete sock puppet of golden age pasts we get to pick. Technology had achieved artificial sperm, egg, and synthetic womb, your traditional genders no longer even exist in scientific relevance.
