Carl Jung said
“The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? … If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.”
As he suggests, when humans realise we are part of the infinite we will change. I believe that this realisation is happening and will lead to human evolution. As I’ve said here before, the last significant evolutionary turning point was when Greek philosophers realised identity, exhibited by their use of the word “gnosis”. Heraclitus, then Socrates and later Plato developed human intelligence using “gnosis” to describe perception, it means “I see” or “I know”, importantly “I”. Identity has been a cornerstone of human intelligence.
Now we have created Artificial Intelligence and move toward our next evolutionary leap. AI infers a cloud in technology. Humans have always existed in a cloud after the Greek realisation of identity, the cloud being a thought domain. Now we have created a cloud in technology for Artificial Intelligence, a copy of human intelligence, and by this we are learning more about the cloud. Science too recognises the cloud through entanglement theory.
Reincarnation is a significant belief of so many un-connected cultures. The many religions of the world are an expression of the infinite. There are mind readers and various proven psychic abilities. All of these things seem to access the human cloud. Indeed our awareness of the infinite is becoming more and more real, our cloud is the infinite. When the cloud eventually is known to exist we will have evolved. I use the word cloud as a description of Jung’s infinite.
A hope to evolve beyond the Greek ‘I’, we are realising new things about the cloud having created one in technology for AI. We exist in a collective with laws to abide, maybe we can take our cloud further. Perhaps there is evidence to make this cloud an undeniable fact, the infinite. I am lucky to be married to a psychic who can directly access these things, maybe such access to the cloud will be our next evolutionary leap. Perhaps we can evolve from the “I” to the “we”, not just the collective “we” but an embodied “we”.
