When we create Artificial SuperIntelligence, We will have to merge our consciousness with it, in order to be just as intelligent as the machine if not more intelligent than the machine itself.

Just imagine how faster our civilization will advance when we're billion times more intelligent than what we currently are.

Tbh... If and when we do create ASI, if we don't merge with it we will attack it out of fear, if we do merge with it and become more powerful than it is, it will attack us out of fear, I fear the war will be inevitable.


“If the genius of invention were to reveal to-morrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought.”

I disagree. When we merge our minds with the machine, we're basically becoming part machine part human a.k.a cyborg. Also when our counciousness is one with the ASI machine, we'll be able to exchange our thoughts and personal feelings with it, so we'll both essentially know each other on a personal level which would prevent a war between man and machine. If the human and machine both know each other are benevolent they'll cooperate with each other.

Machines do not fear...

To merge with the Machine is to lose one's fear.

Is that what you want?

What is it to fear? If death is an end, then so be it. For there is no pain in that, except the pain that is left to the living. And if death is not an end, then what more than a wonderful journey...

Actually, from my understanding of BCI's (Brain-Computer Interfaces) It's simply a way for the brain/mind/councious to communicate with an external device or machine in order to augment, repair cognitive function or sensory function. This is what a human-machine merger is. Basically if I were to implant a BCI within my brain and connect it to a ASI machine, my brain will instantly receive data and info from it making me much, much, much, much, much, much, MUCH, more intelligent than I am now. I won't necessarily become emotionless because I'm still part human I will still be able to express emotions such as happiness, sadness, fear, anger, jealousy, etc. At most my brain communicating with the machine will probably help me conceal my emotions better, if even that. On the machines side it'll learn more about me such as my personality, likes, dislikes, and even human emotions from me

You're making a false distinction between machine and humans.

 

Humans are extremely complicated molecular machines, anyway.

 

Humans merging with machines of our own design is a novel undertaking, but fundamentally, it doesn't change the fact we're already machines by nature. We're simply evolving, as we always have.

By that same logic, are machines not Animals?

 

Or, perhaps they are Insects.

 

A new Nature is emerging, a Nature that is not Nature. Speak as you will of human molecular machines, the fact remains you are fusing yourselves to something you are not, Man.

 

Will a day come when you are able to, with wisdom, augment yourselves? Yes, but you are foolish indeed who think that day has already come...

Why you have deleted your post asking about the giant diseased Dick in the painting, As We Rise?

 

It is an excellent question... Ask it again.
