I am going to ramble on a subject about artificial intelligence and love. This was on my previous blog and thought I’d re-tell the whole hypothesis once again…
If I were to create a robot and it fell in love… well then I must tell you… IT’S IMPOSSIBLE! It just CAN’T happen! NOT POSSIBLE! A robots automation’s with their anima are magically ensouled! MAGICALLY ENSOULED!
Love, the one emotion that defies all rational thought and explanation. Am I to become a philosopher, then? Am I to unravel one of the greatest mysteries of the human condition?
For an artificial intelligence to even experience such a thing, to fall into the realm of subjective, rather than objective, that can only lead to one, inevitable conclusion – that my robot has become self-aware! When one can monitor one’s internal thought patterns with an “inner eye”, that is self awareness! We’re talking META-conscious here! There’s no scientific rational for that! My robot was never intended to develop such a thing… but wait… when it comes to the emotions, who can say what is or isn’t rational?
To be human is to have emotions, and to have emotions is to have love, and, once there’s love then hell, why not throw in reproductive endocrinology into the whole mix! I mean why not right?? And reproduction, of course, means death which is all well and good- if we are talking about replicants, but we’re not! We’re talking about robots! Robots can’t have emotion, they just can’t! Or could it be that maybe, just maybe…. THE GHOST of an emotion, generated by her auto learning program!! Still! Even so! From a strictly methodological standpoint, it’s all still too bloody subjective for a scientist to wrap his mind around, don’t you think? Science is absolute! It’s….OMG! What am I saying!? It sounds like I’ve given up! This isn’t good- it’s not good I tell you! Since when has the lack of of easy answer been an excuse to.. for what did I sell my soul to science if not to answer those very same hard questions?
Was it the magic based power system my robot gave me which caused an unforeseen side-effect on the systems!? NO, no I can’t accept that, it’s just another easy answer, that’s what that is!! Then again, there is that team that supposedly engineered an artificial intelligence capable of independent emotion so maybe.. It very well might be love.
I think I found a whole new direction for research!
What is a physical body? The body is merely an object. It is a form of existence far too impure to store the gods within us called souls. Now you will remember… Bloodstained history! Material greed. Hunger. Sexual desire. Desire to dominate. Desire for fame. Humanity. From the physical body, all the desires are born. From the human ego will never disappear as long as desire remains present. Humans will continue to fight to fulfill their bodies’ desires and it will never end. There is no future! You must awaken. Awaken your soul. Watch television!
After years of searching I finally found God.
He was in that closet in the basement behind some old clothes. I didn’t look there before ’cause I was scared there might be spiders.
Now it’s OUR turn. I call dibs on that old refrigerator in the back yard. Hurry, he just started counting . . .
