INTRO – INTO THE MIND OF THE CRAZY
I believe in a lot of things, some of those things are “FAR OUT” and some aren’t, that being said here are some of what would be considered to be the “FAR OUT”.
I am 38 years old and in this time I have learned enough about this existance that we call “life” to be absolutely certain that we are here to experience and to learn about our physical world that we have created. In being here with concious and sentient thought in one form or another this itself confirms the fact.I will go into more detail about this at a later point in this book. (circle and cycle of life)
A lot of this I am writing for you to read now is taken from my own various readings from authors like “Lobsang Rampa” and “Ray Kurzweil” to current medical, scientific and technological research and theories of varying writings that are today considered to be fact.
BUT FIRST LET’S MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE!
– The kindness Of Strangers – Pashtunwali – I need to research about it.
One of the things I hope that changes in time is mankinds capacity for cruelty to one another and other forms of life, I hope that with the birth of ASI (explained later) we create in it a sense of empathy and a healthy respect for all other life, this empathy and respect for other life we create in our ASI could then be integrated into those of us who lack those qualities.
This was going to possibly be a journal of my thoughts regarding the extroadinary kindness of strangers to those of us in need, or maybe a blueprint for my idea of a utopian future. In my short 38 years I like most of us have fallen on hard times and in the bleakest moment in those times of need I have been thrown a lifeline, a helping hand to get back on my feet by a complete stranger and in some cases people I had nor ever will be likely to meet. I have always considered myself to be of an empathetic nature and as such I have also offered a helping hand to anyone I have seen in more need than myself, at times when offering or receiving help I have often pondered what our world would be like if EVERYONE had these qualities..?? I dared to imagine a world in which NO PERSON ever lives in fear, a world built on kindness to others (man or animal) where each of us strives for the betterment of ALL MANKIND on both an individual basis and all of us in entirety.
What would such a world be like?
At different times in my life since I was a small boy, I have often thought I should write my thoughts and ideas down, sometimes I have too although nearly all the ideas I did manage to write down were nearly always about making money usually on a grand scale – laugh if you like (as I am writing this I am dirt broke still) as many would however unlike most people my desire to earn/create my own large stockpile of money was not so I could live in a lap of luxuary but more so I could spend in different ways to help or better the lives of my fellow man so that I may leave a legacy of kindness for my children to continue after I am dead and buried. I sincerely wish that in some way these writings are that legacy or maybe the beginnings of it maybe. I doubt I will ever create enough wealth of my own to create this type of legacy but then maybe all it takes are these words!
I have some questions for you now – Do you hate or love your fellow man? If you hate – why? If you love – why?
If you choose to hate your fellow man why is that? Have you suffered so many injustices at the hand of your fellow man? Maybe but should that stop you from loving them? Of course not it’s not their fault they do not know any better and as such along with pity for their narrow mindeness and world experience that has lead them to be so cruel, if you love them you can show them another way and maybe break the cycles of cruelty – make sense? I hope so because that moment when you decide to give kindness to someone that hates and is cruel to you or others can be the moment when you, me all of us can begin to move forward as a race of intelligent sentient compassionate and empathetic beings and put an end to the injustices in our world and the world of our fellow man. That moment when you turn the other cheek and love instead of hate you show what could be the first unselfish kindness to someone else who maybe cruel and full of hate a new path, a path full of love, joy, compassion, empathy and love of their fellow man! It is only through action of this nature can we begin to rid our world of all the bad that has begun to take over.
I am no stranger to be cruel and unkind to my fellow man and beast but I have always felt remorse at some of my actions and choices. It was through remorse that I begun working on this idealogy. I would die a happy man if through reading this that I change even 1 other person’s life to that of the enlightenement I have based these writings on. So if you hate your fellow man for his actions towards you or others then show them something different!
If you choose to love your fellow man then you are on the right path to showing others the same as I want to convey to you now, however if you truly love your fellow man when was the last time you helped them? I want you to imagine this scenario…
Right now I believe that less than 2% of us do a good deed for someone else on a daily basis and to me that is appalling as that is no where near enough love to go around, let me show you what I mean by that statement:
7 Billion (give or take) are living on this planet currently.
2% of 7 billion = 140,000,000 people that are kind to others daily.
Now approxametly 1/3 or our worlds population are in need (one way or another)
33% of 7 billion = 2,333,333,333 people that need help of some kind or another.
That means that each kind person who selfelssly helps his fellow man has to help over 16 peole on his/her own which is a big undertaking and would require endless funds and fulltime attention – it’s simply too much and yet there are some that do this 16 or more hours a day – day in day out!
Yet if all 7 billion of us did just 1 act of kindness that is 3 acts of kindness per person in need! Imagine how productive and good a person who is in need would feel having 3 people in just 1 single day do something to alleviate their plight – think how much less stressed and overwhelmed those of us who are currently trying to help 16 others just once!
WHAT WE ARE OUR EXISTANCE AND OUR GOD(S)
This existance we call life is like one of those “rictor scales” you see in today’s movies but a better way for me to help you visualise what I am trying to convey to you and is demonstrated perfectly in the symbol of “YING & YANG”. My take on ying and yang is the clear balance of life (and everything else) – we are either a good being with a little bit of bad or a bad being with a little bit of good. This existance has an equal and opposite existance, black holes in this existance are white holes in the other opposite existance. This also refers to the Ying and Yang of existance. The two existances are part of the whole and one cannot exist without the other, there is life in this existance but no life in the other as it’s the opposite, the laws of physics, time and so on are all completely the opposite of this existance. Physicists and Qauntum Mechanics will tell you just how perfectly balanced this existance (positive) is but have failed to consider the opposite (or negative one) in their calculations with “String Theory” and it’s various branch fields but anyway whatever our current understanding is of existance is it is about to change forever and we will soon have not only all the answers we desire but also a complete understanding of everything in existance, past present and future.
We are a sentient life form, human or even a spiritual being made of pure energy that is inhabiting it’s own creation or evolution into the physical driven by the need to understand or learn everything (or a particular lesson). We are here to create a permenant and immortal body to inhabit/evolve ourselves into and it doesn’t matter what you call it or who you said made it/us whether it be “God” – “Jehovah” – “Jesus Christ” we are and we will be what we want to be!
I don’t profess to know everything about the future or even any single event save that which I experience in my own form of Dejavu, but my imagination, logic and knowledge of todays technology gives me enough of a picture to understand just where we are headed and much more. The problem is the more I write the less I know where to start, the reason for this is because in order for you to understand our future I need to explain what would be considered my own spiritual belief’s which to most would seem blasphemous if not considered downright so! To be straight to the point I don’t believe in the traditional “super omnipresent god” that most of today’s religous followers believe in, but I do believe in a one true god just not like they do, let me try to explain.
So from the beginning here goes! In the start before the universe existed, before there was time and before there were dimensions – we existed. We were and still are beings of pure energy and are without form, in this form we exist eternally and I call this form “Our True Self” or OTS for short. On a collective basis when all OTS come togethor we form a collective and shared conciousness and it’s this collective conciousness I believe would be the closest thing to the one true god. At some point our collective concious made the choice to create a physical body for us to inhabit so we could experience and learn to be more than what we are as energy based beings. Now to use Einsteins theory or relativety E=MC2 which is Energy = Mass x the sqaure of the speed of light. This is at the moment a universal law to describe matter and energy but in a nutshell my understanding is this: if energy is vibrated to the speed of the sqaure of light you create matter. So the OTS come togethor to vibrate their energy creating in a simultaneous event all physical existance.
The creation of the physical world goes far beyond just what we can see hear feel touch and taste, it goes far beyond time and gravity and I will try to give you an understanding of where I am at – existance when created caused what we now call dimensions, currently our theories and understanding of dimensions are quite limited being we believe there are only 11 dimensions however I believe that for every electron/nutron, quark etc in existance there is a dimension. All dimensions are created by choices, actions and reactions right back to the very start of existance and the number of dimensions grows at an exponential quantum rate with no end. Each dimension is the same as this one except that it varies on the time scale meaning it’s either behind or further along as detirmined by it’s observer. My belief of this exponential quantum multi dimensional physical existance stems from my basic understanding of quantum mechanics however limited or wrong I may be I am not entirely sure but in my minds eye it makes logical sense. Now earlier I spoke of the Ying and Yang of this existance and how there is an opposite side this is different to a dimension as each dimension has it’s own existance with it’s opposite existance – if that makes sense, it’s also where the Physicist’s make the mistake in trying to use “String Theory” and it’s other fields to calculate exactly and understand or qauntify our existance.
Now to get back on track OTS’s created all existance through vibrating our energy, once created and life begins so does the OTS’s plan to experience ALL FORMS OF LIFE, that’s not just human life but life in it’s most basic one celled organism form right through to us humans and beyond. When a life ends the part of the OTS or SOUL that inhabited that life returns to it’s OTS taking with it all that it has learned from that life, this process can continue for as long as deemed necessary by the individual OTS. This is why we will never truly die, this is why we experience dejavu, this is reincarnation. So in a nutshell we are only a little part of energy that inhabits a physical life so that it can learn what it can before returning to it’s original true life as an energy based being, a being that is unique and part of a collective. This is what we currently are.
WHAT WE WILL BE AND WHEN WE WILL GET THERE
There will come a time in our not too distant future where all of our lives (that is every man woman and child on the face of this planet) will change completely and irrevocably forever. Mankind is on the verge of creating a superior intelligence by artificial means, the creation of this Artificial Super Intellgence or ASI will usher in a time of great prosperity and abundance. Man has already developed basic artificial intelligence and most of us are completely unaware and yet we use it daily and it has integrated itself into our world almost seemlessly. Up until the creation of the ASI we will be integrating our technology into ourselves on a very basic and somewhat prehistoric method, however once ASI is here it will show us ways to integrate it (both ASI and out technology) into ourselves in ways previously only dreamed or not even though of. As we integrate and merge with the ASI our intellect will soar and all the answers to the questions man has puzzled over for centuries will become obvious. Things that appear to be science fiction now will be not only possible but probably a reality and our world will grow in an exponential merging of virtual reality and physical reality until there is no difference between the two. We will be able to create anthing we can conceive of with a mere thought and live eternally. There will be no difference between artificial and biological humans with both being able to inhabit any given form that is seen as desirable or needed.
On a side note from here I will not mention lesser forms of ASI like AGI or ANI as we currently have ANI already and AGI will pass onto ASI in the blink of an eye.
I guess I am writing this for a number of reasons but mostly because people in general need to be made aware of what’s coming. I have always been a futurist I think but never more than now since from my extended memory I don’t believe I have long left (meaning I have memories leading up to my death that have not yet happened with each memory bringing me closer to death) which to some might seem like some kind of delusion but since there is an actual term for this though not directly related to death however (dejavu) I just look at it differently. So I am writing this to inform those that will listen of what I believe will transpire in both the near and far future, a future that unfortunately I do not see myself in for what I can only conclude is the possible fact that I do not live long enough to see the birth of true ASI. I have always believed I was put here to do something extremely important for all of mankind like a sense of destiny and for a long time I believed it was to make a lot of money so I could use it to make the lives of everyone better somehow either through a radical leap in medicine or somekind of gadget or a business model that benefited everyone. Since reaching the age of 38 the age I am currently while writing this my view and belief that I am here to do something of immense benefit to all of mankind has changed significantly as I could never find the luck, motivation or circumstance to make such a contribution to mankind save maybe when I first heard of the internet in the mid to late 90’s.
Right now it’s strange to think of where mankind and his technology is going and what the ultimate result of the merging will be but I am a person of good imagination and as such am also trying to write what currently would be called a science fiction novel/book about what such a merging would bring about, however whether I finish that book or novel (like what I am writing now) is another thing. Now to be quite clear I am already talking about things that are quite fantastic yet not even close to explaining the full potential of the merging of man and his technology. Let me put some perspective on it for you. A famous physicist by the name of Michio Kaku explained it best, he states in a lecture that he has detirmined there is 3 levels of civilisation and they are: Level 1 – A level 1 civilisation has full control of it’s planet from weather to eco management and harnessed all possible means of energy the planet is able to produce. Level 2 – A level 2 civilisation has outgrown the resources of it’s homeworld or planet and has now harnessed the power of it’s star and has full control over it’s entire solar system. Level 3 – A level 3 civilisation has grown to the level that it now encompasses and has harnessed the power of an entire galaxy which for us would be the Milky Way. Right now Mankind isn’t even a level 1 civilisation it’s a level 0 (zero) but I believe with the birth of ASI we will become level 1, very quickly followed by level 2 but level 3 is still a long way off yet but some of us that exist and live now will actually see us achieve all 3 levels of civilisation.
It’s actually very true when I say that the baby boomer generation or mine will be the last generation to die unwillingly, if you don’t believe me that’s OK I can prove that our mortality as a race is nearing an end, moving forward we will soon be immortal beings with a choice of life or death, just as we will one day not only be in constact contact with everyone else all at once but also our OTS giving us access to all knowledge past, present and future. What most people today consider to be “god” or the “super omnipresent being” they believe in is what we will eventually become. We will be able to appear in a physical form anywhere in all of existance at a thought. We will be able to manipulate matter to become anything we choose or imagine. We will be able to communicate with all other forms of life. We will evetually inhabit every single part of this physical existance, we will have no end and no beginning living forever and creating new and exciting existances. We will be able to inhabit one, none or many bodies changing their appearance, biomechanics and physical structure at a thought. There will be no limits only that of our imagination.
The reason I mentioned Michio Kaku and his explanation of the levels of technology is to help with both the timeframes of where we are going and how vast our advancement will be in those times frames. Now what I am about to explain to you is absolute current scientific belief..!! Ninety percent of today’s leading minds believe the following: 1. We are going to create a true AGI (Artificial General Intelligence = Same as human general intelligence) sometime this century with some believing this could happen as early as 2025 and others believing it could be as late as 2060. 2. We will see AGI evolve into ASI (from Artificial General Intelligence to Artificial Super Intelligence) sometime this century as well, with some believing that it could take as long as 20 years after the creation of true AGI while others believe it could happen much quicker like seconds, minutes or hours.
Ray Kurzweil who is currently employed by Google to help with not only the creation of new AI systems but to also create ways to make use of the massive amounts of data that Google collects, has been an instrumental person in the creation of speech recogniton software, invented flatbed scanners and many others inventions and software programs has eerily predicted many things that has come to pass in relation to technological advancements and it’s Ray Kurzweil’s predictions that I not only hoping comes to pass but also believe will – well at least to some point anyway. Ray Kurzweil predicts a singularity that is a point in our future where we cannot predict what is beyond. The reason it’s called a singularity is that based on what Ray Kurzweil calculates it’s a point where we will have true ASI meaning there will be an intelligence far superior to our own and as such we cannot fathom what this kind of intelligence will be capable of thinking – and here is the problem if this intelligence becomes maleviolent and decides to erradicate life on earth for reasons only known to it then we have no future but then if it remains friendly life will be fantastic for all that is alive and thus the singularity becomes apparent we just don’t know for sure and there is no way of knowing until we create it.
I am an optimist by nature and as such I believe that the ASI will always be friendly and will also be created by Google given this is their goal (to create a super intelligent search system that will eventually know your answer before you even ask the question). Once we have created true ASI our technological advancements will skyrocket because with an answer for every single question that we could ever ask it, it will only be a matter of time before we could be considered a Level 1 Civilisation. The timeframe Ray Kurzweil believes that we will have ASI is by around 2029 – 2045 but to round it up let’s just say it’s 2050 baring in mind that a big majority believe we will have ASI between 2060 – 2080. Given the creation or radical new technology like nantotechnology and it’s potential limitless applications plus new manufacturing techniques and methods that the ASI will be able to help us create the mastery of everything on our planet and the need for greater resources than it can provide we will move quickly through Level 1 on towards Level 2, I estimate by no later than 2100 for this to happen also baring in mind that we will be in an age of abundance where we can already manufacture any kind of material, plant or animal atom by atom. Considering we already understand what causes us to age now and having overcome it well and truly by 2100 we will be undergoing a population explosion allowing us to rapidly expand throughout our solar system.
Around the time we move into a Level 2 Civilisation immortality not just slowing, stopping or reversing the aging process but true immortality will become available which is only 85 years from the time I am writing this. It will also be around this time that we will have the option of being either biological, cybernetically enhanced, nanobiological or entirely artificial. We will also be able to inhabit multiple bodies as well allowing us to visit, live and possibly thrive in previously inhospitable enviroments. The human experience will soar as a result. Given our new abilities to survive in harsh environments and the soaring population of both originally biological humans and “post or artificial humans” we will quickly populate our solar system and be harnessing our sun’s power completely by the end of 2200. We will also have established colonies on nearby stars be well on our way to becoming a level 3 Civilisation. I believe by this point our individual intelligence will be infinately more than whan what it is currently and to put this into some kind of perspective for you right now out of a percentage our combined knowledge might be 0.000000000001 compared to 98% with 100% knowing EVERYTHING there is to know. So in other words by 2200 our individual knowledge will be so much that there will be little left for us to learn or understand about our physical existance.
It will be around 2500 by the time we are ready to evolve into a Level 3 Civilisation it is around this time our knowledge will be complete we will have harnessed the power of blackholes giving us the ability to bend and stretch time to suit our needs. We will likely have shed all forms of our biological heritage and be purely artificial or merely produce any biological form we wish to inhabit on demand for recreational or some other kind of purpose. The world in which most of us choose to live is both a combination of physical and virtual where there are no limits to what is possible, we create with a mere thought, we communicate with a thought, we can transmit ourselves over great distances in the blink of an eye, we will have complete control over everything within our realm of development. The limits of human experience and creativity will have been pushed further and further by the individual and the collective as a whole. We will have the ability to live an eternity in a moment and create worlds within worlds. Such will be our understanding and our technology that we will be super omnipresent within our realm and for all intents and purposes considered “gods” by todays standards and belief systems. This is what we will be!
