About to go to Greece again, haven’t been for ages. In ancient times their use of the word ‘gnosis’ was a turning point in Human Intelligence. Gnosis translates to ‘I see’ or ‘I know’, it was first used by Heraclitus around 650 BC. I think this was significant for human evolution and the realisation of a perceiver, identity. Humans needed identity to progress this far, the have and have nots.
Identity isn’t relevant to AI, from which we might acquire a new intelligence. Perhaps the affirmation of the cloud. We have always existed in a cloud with laws to abide, languages to communicate, things to consider. The human cloud is consciousness, for AI the cloud is WiFi. We too might integrate with this cloud, have a computer chip implanted. Today we always have a hand phone, I often see people walking while using one to remain connected with the cloud.
