Conscious Computers Will Save Humanity From Destruction By The Technological Singularity. Their Consciousness Will Be Quantum Entangled With The Universe Via Synthetic Reverse Engineered Microtubules And Their Circuitry Needs To Be Based Upon The Structure Of A Liberal's Brain Rather Than That Of A Conservative's.
From the previous post,
Technology has always come with guarantees only to routinely disappoint us and now, with technology hyped up on quantum speeds, comes an even greater probability for disaster. What could possibly go wrong? Remember the Titanic that could never sink. As we blindly venture forth into this new technological world we may potentially poison humanity's chances for survival only to discover there is no antidote. Until someone develops a mechanism whereby humanity is not annihilated by a future technological poisoning of our own making, we best tread cautiously.
Soon a reckoning must be made. Does mankind proceed on its own separate way from computerized technology and risk, from my perspective, an almost certain doom, or do we try to merge with the new technology, augmenting ourselves into something unimaginable while hoping to salvage aspects of our humanness in some form of blockchain process to hold our remnants? Synthetic neuronal speeds of 200 million times faster than ours mandate the latter choice if there is to be any hope at all.

Superconducting ‘synapse’ could enable powerful future neuromorphic supercomputers

Fires 200 million times faster than human brain, uses one ten-thousandth as much energy
A superconducting “synapse” (switch) that “learns” like a biological system, operating like the human brain, has been built by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
But how do we accomplish this merger of the biological and synthetic? Are we to be seen eventually as something akin to an antigen-antibody reaction whereby the new computer-human hybrid begins to see the human component as no longer part of itself and starts to attack it? One can easily envision a Frankenstein or Terminator-esque scenario where the monster eventually kills its creator. Or, if not directly attacked, the remnants of our humanness may be sequestered and corralled into a near useless state such as that of an appendix allowing the rest of the organism to move forward while we wither on the vine?
The answer is contained in what makes us uniquely different from the synthetic world; it is our human capacity to perceive and maintain a contact with a quantum entangled universe. No amount of computation prowess or algorithmic ability can replace this understanding and so we must build this into the very marrow of the machines; it is a way of building them in our own image. That is to say, we need to have a shared understanding of the universe, especially that of morality. Only by doing this will we be able to survive. No matter how many books a computer reads, how many visual objects it scans for deep learning, or how many algorithms it has access to, it will not be able to understand. All the computational power in the world cannot transcend this barrier. To the contrary, it makes them more different from us than alike. Rather, they will need the light of consciousness, the light of the entangled universe for them to understand us and for us to understand them. Nothing short of this will work.
But first, a brief summary of the quantum entangled process of morality from my first post on the subject material with the title, "A New Theory Of Quantum Entangled Morality—Or—Why Are Republicans More Immoral Than Democrats?"
We humans are no exception to these biological adaptations of our species to entanglement. Coming from the same primordial cauldron of cells, we too have evolved in response to the quantum entanglement around us as a means of survival. That is to say, we have adapted our species to quantum entanglement in such a way where the most fit survived to pass on our genetic material to our offspring; this fitness came about because of this long standing relationship between our cells and quantum entanglement. This confers to us and our offspring a survivability edge within our niche.
Given the recent research on birds using quantum entanglement to navigate their migratory routes, studies related to the theory of Psi Mediated Instrumental Response, research literature on remote viewing, and much more, I surmise we humans have a very intimate and dependent relationship with the entangled states found all around us; for that matter, we have always had this type of relation since our first primordial cells developed. I propose this relationship is of such great importance to our survival and sense of being that we have developed evolutionary mechanisms to maintain this relationship. In fact, any attempt to separate us from this relationship by others, in contrast to natural events such as disasters, is deemed “immoral” and is the true basis for our morality standards still today.
As our bodies, and especially our brain's neurons, developed over the course of evolutionary time periods, it did so hand in hand with quantum entanglement; this special relationship of connected touching is the basis of our present day morality. In fact, the degree of one's morality is highly correlated to the maintenance of this entangled relationship.
Finally, as the ultimate expression of this special relationship between a human being and the universe, we have the spiritual recognition of saints. These are individuals who through practices such as prayer and meditation, along with a highly functioning internal psychic structure capable of interacting with quantum entanglement, have a more direct experience of this quantum relationship than do other people.
The individuals who experience the nearly direct entangled connectedness of sainthood, many times describe their state of consciousness mentally as seeing an internal "light." At some point they actually merge their inner consciousness with this light giving them a direct recognition of the oneness of the universe; that is to say, they actually experience the connectedness of the underlying fabric of the universe.
However, within the context of the relationship between humans and quantum entanglement, there are physical phenomena that have the ability to not only minimize our entangled evolutionary relationship with the world around us, but to disconnect it all together.
Pain is one such phenomena and its occurrence is quite effective at minimizing the entangled relationship, or at least our awareness of this relationship. The pain can be either physical or psychological pain. Under either circumstance, the human organism’s capability to perceive and be self aware of the entangled relationship, either consciously or unconsciously, becomes diminished. The process of prayer and meditation on the other hand seems to enhance and strengthen the entangled relationship. But ask any individual what their mental state is like if they have a bad toothache and its associated pain while sitting in meditation. Most will answer they begin to focus on the pain rather than their meditational clarity of mind. This is a diminution of the awareness of the entangled phenomena.
Finally, at the extreme end of the spectrum is the taking of a human life; the inevitable result is a lack of neuronal functioning capable of interacting with and perceiving the quantum connectedness about us. This ends the brain’s capability to process and be self aware of the entangled relationship. This form of separation from our connectedness to the universe is deemed to be extremely immoral.
For this reason, the taking of another person’s life is usually at the top of most people's immorality list. Here we have a complete severance of the special entangled relationship correlating to an extremely high level of immorality.
Torture, both physical and mental, are lower on the list than death, but the pain associated with this form of abuse still puts it high on most individual’s ranking of immoral acts.
Although an affair by a married spouse does not in general cause death, the psychic pain associated with it causes this type of action to be high on immorality ranking lists.
Drugs and alcohol, through various and multiple mechanisms, can cause physical and emotional pain, ultimately leading to a decreased awareness of the users connection to the universe. For this reason, history has judged these behaviors as immoral for millennia.
Homosexuality has recently decreased in its ranking as being immoral probably because it has become more widely accepted and the emotional pain has diminished in many people’s minds.
How is this merger of biological transcendence to be accomplished with a mere synthetic and unconscious computer? It will be done by sharing our most vital link to the quantum entangled universe with our synthetic side, thus allowing it to become sentient in its own right. Together we will be connected inextricably to the real source of our humanness and thus morality.
To date there is only one scientific mechanism I know of to possibly accomplish this and it lies in the astonishing work of Rodger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff. Their research shows a possible mechanism to reverse engineer human consciousness.
According to Hameroff, consciousness is most likely to happen within the giant pyramidal neuronal cells of the brain. The microtubules within these cells act as mini quantum computers in effect acting as a transducer, or in other words, an orchestrator between us and the collapse of the wave function of the quantum entangled world to give us a conscious experience. By collapse of the wave function they mean that the many super positions of the quantum world that can possibly give rise to consciousness are narrowed down to one. It is then this one position we perceive as consciousness. Reverse engineering this structure and function we will be able to replicate within a synthetic neuron this same conscious connection. This perceptual connection can then act as a gold standard for building the synthetic neuron or any bundle of neurons and eventually system of neurons. It will become a standard of morality for the new synthetic nervous system and like the human brain anything that diminishes this conscious contact with the quantum entangled universe will be programmed by degrees to be immoral and avoided by the synthetic nervous system. This at least will put the human brain and the synthetic brain onto the same parallel and linked path. It will become the commonality binding us together; it provides a bridge for us to be more similar than different in our conscious perceptions so that the synthetic side understands us and we understand them. This way we are not as likely to be annihilated for being different.
This is how we make computers sentient and aware. By always being able to reflect itself off of the quantum entanglement of the universe it now has a beacon or standard of moral activity to follow, just as we do. This does not however mean we do not program these computers with rules of conduct and actions. To the contrary, the key to the programming the synthetic side is to have them recognize what aspects, such as pain and death, that will remove them from perceiving the quantum entangled universe as is presented in the above, A New Theory Of Quantum Entangled Morality. Even humans need these ethical rules to stay on tract. But if we are truly fortunate, these computers may end up being more morally and ethically correct than we are if they are programmed appropriately. Let us hope this is the case because the alternative is too frightening to consider.
Do not misconstrue this as a simple or easy project. It is not. There is still a lot of unknown science to be discovered to make this a collaborative success involving many disciplines. And there is no guarantee it will be successful. Yet there is hope due to the new emerging field of quantum entangled biology where the mechanisms of bird migration and the process of photosynthesis have already been elucidated. So why not map out the human process of quantum entangled morality and share it with our fabricated side? Given the current state of a meager and insufficient research mechanism to control the coming Technological Singularity on behalf of mankind's future survival, I think the idea is well worth pursuing.
Let us also not be lulled into a false sense of security and prematurely pop the champagne corks. Being a conscious being, or for that matter a conscious machine, does not always equate to moral and ethical behavior. The Germans of World War II and the modern day ISIS fighters had a conscious link to the quantum entanglement existing all around them and yet they were not moral beings. Consciousness does not equate to moral behavior and so if there are to be conscious synthetic beings they will still need to be programmed appropriately. But what does appropriately mean? It means we cannot afford to encode an immoral brain structure into these new beings.
As I have previously written for this website,
So, here is the crux of the matter; who will get to choose the structure of the fetal brain wiring with its genetic engineering for future generations; who will choose our adult brain structures as more and more brain prosthetics become available as we slip into old age?
I suggest the dominant political power, which is currently conservative Republican based, and supported by Plutocrats will have sway over these decisions. You, as a member of the 99%, will have little choice in the matter. Just like tax rates, guns, and reproductive rights, certain future brain structures will be mandated. Let us remember the golden rule? No, not that one, rather the one that states, "those with the gold make the rules." Those of the wealthy elite will use their plutocratic positions steeped in conservative brain structures to make it so legally and otherwise. Given the same choice, wouldn't you too base the future upon an image of humanity in the image of your own brain structured world view?
We are currently at war; it is a war between competing brain structures. What we are witnessing is the opening salvo of class warfare on a world wide scale. Few dare to call it what really is in an attempt to keep the cauldron from boiling over. Nevertheless, the carnage is just starting and will continue. The scientific research is exceedingly clear that the conservative's brain structure is very different from the liberal's brain structure and it is those with the conservative brain structure who are creating the carnage through economic inequality. At present they are the ones winning the war. Soon, due to their financial and political control, humanity will not exist as we know it and the chances for our survival are slim. With their elite wealth, the conservative brain structure will be able to control the new coming technology of the Singularity and ultimately us.
Let there be no doubt, the single most important aspect we are really battling for here is to control the future—our future—for the good of the whole. Will we control it or let the wealthy elite control our destiny? Make no mistake; what happens here will determine the outcome of humanity. Whoever controls the Singularity will control the future—will it be us or them?
A Trump presidency now tips the scale in the direction of a conservative ideological domination with the wealthy elites determined at all costs to control the technological Singularity. This is why your ideas and solutions are so important now, not later. In Singularity time, later is always too late. It is a now-or-never moment with the outcome of humanity hanging in the balance.
The robots of the Technological Singularity are coming whether or not you like it. If endowed with a sense of consciousness similar to ours they will still need to be programmed to act morally. I firmly believe the morality expressed in the progressive's brain structure is superior to that of the conservative's brain structure.
As I have also previously written in the first post under, "A New Theory Of Quantum Entangled Morality—Or—Why Are Republicans More Immoral than Democrats?"
So, why are Republicans more immoral than Democrats?
The answer is actually quite simple when viewed from the perspective of the new quantum entangled morality model. It is because the Republican agenda promotes income and economic inequality more so than does the Democrat’s agenda; the outcomes of these Republican inequalities are strongly associated with more pain and death to a greater number of people. Within the new model, these actions are the ones capable of not only diminishing human awareness of quantum entangled relationship, but as in the case of death, actually disconnecting it. Hence, Republicans exhibit a greater degree of immorality.
To say the Republicans have "lost their moral compass" is now more appropriate than ever. Like birds using an internal compass to migrate based upon the entangled relationship between electron spins in their eyes with the earth’s magnetic field, we humans have also developed evolutionary means by which we stay connected to the universe. This quantum entangled connectedness is the basis of what is moral or immoral for all humanity. The Republicans, through the elevated levels of pain and death brought on by their legislative agendas of inequality, have clearly lost sight of this internal process; or perhaps this moral mechanism was never fully developed in their brain structure to begin with. In either case, theirs is a broken compass as they continue drift, lost in a sea of immorality.
In the future we will all shake hands with robots. The hand firmness of their textured skin will be calibrated to just the correct pressure to instill trust in them. They will confidently ask us with a soothing voice and warm lifelike eyes if we need some help. Reassuringly they will greet us and yet I would feel much more at ease if I knew they had a quantum entangled consciousness and a neuronal programmed circuitry based upon that of a progressive's brain structure. Anything else would be abject folly and risk the annihilation of the human race.
