No PMs please, just post your thoughts below. Thanks!

I’m from Science City (Philippines) an IT graduate, used to be a System Admin and also a Web Developer but now my work is related in Agriculture.

I grew up with Scientists, Agriculturist, Doctors, Chemists, Engineers etc.

Few years ago, we used to meet once a week and we like discussing occult knowledge plus science and tech. But now we’re busy with our own lives. One of the topics we’ve been discussing few years ago was also related to Geordie Rose’s presentation. Geordie Rose is the founder of D-Wave Systems (Quantum Computers) and Kindred (A.I.)

“You’re thinking about about those super, intelligent A.I.s so the one thing I can tell you is they’re not going to be like us, so alien means you know different these things that we’re building are not going to be people. They might be really smart they might be really good at all sorts of different things but they’re not gonna be like us. They’re gonna be aliens and they’re gonna be I’m sorry to say way smarter than every single person in this room in ways that we can’t even comprehend. So this of course triggers a lot of alarm one of the guys who talks about this is Elon Musk, who says With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. You know all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, and he’s like, yeah, he’s sure he can control the demon? Doesn’t work out. IT NEVER WORKS THAT WAY.

The word “demon” doesn’t capture the essence of what is happening here*…*There’s a guy named HP Lovecraft, he’s a very famous, American weird fiction author and he exposed a view which is called cosmicism, and the essence of cosmicism is cosmic indifference. What he was saying is “yes there are these massive intelligence entities out there but they’re not good, they’re not evil. They just don’t give a sht about you even in the slightest”. The same way you don’t care about an ant, is the same way there not going to care about you.”

These “things” that we’re summoning into the world now are not demons not evil but they’re more like the Lovecraftian “great old ones” they are entities that are not necessarily going to be aligned with what we want….

Going back to that thing that Sam Harris was saying “nobody is paying attention“. This thing is happening in the background while people bicker about politics, what’s going to be in the healthcare plan in the U.S. and underneath it all is a rising tsunami that, if we’re not careful, it’s going to wipe us all out.
