Technological Singularity

A serious assessment of the Technological Singularity

RAG – People seem to confuse intelligence with personality and emotionality. They are three different things and involve three different behavioral traits.

I think it is much deeper than the notion of “trait” includes.

[followed byRAG – To get closer to a feel for the problem, imagine a competition between hacker bots and immune-system bots – each trying to gain control of a distributed system (e.g. the internet’s browsers or some such).]

One needs to give up the notion of “control” and accept that one needs to share degrees of “influence”.

Consciousness needs to take control of the “bots” and put appropriate boundaries on the spheres of influence.

Look at Jordan Peterson’s Maps of Meaning videos, and abstract that one level further than Jordan has gone, and you’re getting close to something.

The thing about distributed systems is, they don’t control easy – particularly if they contain variation, even more so if they are capable of indefinite recursive self emergence.
