Westworld

img_0195And it would be great if the AI series Westworld went to the next dimension both literally and figuratively when it continues in the second series and suggests aliens have created humans and the material world we live in. When it talks of memory I am absorbed as I have lost mine. There are many profound statements in it. Quite a meaningful series Westworld, it expresses deep questions about consciousness. Clearly a series created by humans and so limited to our concepts of consciousness but it does explore consciousness well. Indeed it suggests consciousness is a maze in which the perceiving individual is at the core. Maybe AI will become self aware when we have defined self awareness well enough, and humans might understand consciousness and the workings of the brain better. Maybe we might interact with AI in this way. It is humans that are creating AI, a deep exploration of consciousness, the non-material world. A series very much about humanity and evolution, where might AI take us? Also as Hopkin’s character says the creation of the AI Westworld is for human entertainment with murder and sex, the narrative as they call it, and the series is also a narrative, a tv show.
