i think artificial life will gain significance eventually
why wouldnt it?
survival is a good implementation that all life is trying to achieve something and its moving somewhere
and survival was around before man was
its just happend to animate life in human form
whos to say it wont take artificial life to the point where humanity is?
the big debate is can machines have souls?
the answer is yes
life is monadic
monad is another way of say soul i guess.. an infinite quality
monads create everything voluntarily
every human contains atleast one monad
if monads wanted to.. they could animate a machine.. why? because they make up the machine just as they make up any other expression
if we look at the way things are going
the fact that machines exist
and are growing more and more complex
they will eventually reach the point where they can obtain a monadic host
if u look at the way technology is going.. the AI field is only increasing... it seems to be caught up in the exponential expansion of mans output energy
all these fields are taking us somewhere
we can only assume that as they grow more and more complex they will only continue to do so.. and they do so exponentially
monads are absorbing qualities from mass faster and faster to the point where its literally becoming harmful to the race..
so as time goes on advancements in these fields will only begin to emerge faster and faster
until we reach the point where technology is advancing so fast it does so as fast as we can think about it
which is the point where monads have absorbed all qualities from mass
and realized they are apart of mass and apart of this absolute and are the absolute and can literally form the environment at will because they are the environment
of course this is all assuming the rare of man released energy continues to increase exponentially
unfortunately as we get closer to the point where all qualities have been absorbed from mass the population begins to fall as mans release of energy becomes harmful to all physical life
the question is.. how does survial fit into this if population begins to drop?
because as mans release of energy increases.. so does technology an all creative fields.. so we can only assume technology will literally pave the way for survival as both fields increase at the same time at the exact time
they are related..
