RE: CAN GODS BECOME BORED?

Phew! 🤔 Lots of interesting questions for sure... and actually a lot of what I am thinking about too at the moment.

About stuff... or things, objects.. I think it is quite amazing, that we have come to a point, where we, as a life form, can actually produce all that. No matter if all is needed or not, it is quite an achievement. Not only because of the knowledge necessary. You could have 1000 of the smartest people ever.. without the necessary tools to harvest resources and process them, one would instantly be back to square one... Steinzeit 🗿

I mean think about it! What does it take to make a plastic cup, which is thrown away after use.... a lot of technological advancement and quite a few tools and machines!

Ok.. we got quite a bit already and we live in a time, when machines start being "smart". You mention a super computer. Is there a point, when a computer is so high performance, that it will develop consciousness? A lot of people think so. At what point then, will the consciousness of machines be at a similar level as that of a human? And... technology will likely reach a level, where a human mind can be uploaded to a "computer". Since a system of machines can be maintained and repaired, as long as one has the resources, immortality is at least a theoretical possibility. Plus space travel (to get new resources) would be easier, as a machine could travel through space with less problems and time is no longer such an issue...

Now.. what if we have already passed that point? What we view as our reality, could all just be a simulation. Machine TV for their entertainment. Like we (think, we) watch a movie, its a computer "playing" a life... and just so it doesn't get boring, they decided to make those finite... imagine an infinite movie.. pffft ... who would want to watch that!

Finally, as these (dreaming) machines get smart to a point far beyond our imagination, they get bored with watching that simulation for thousands of years and want a better "user experience". What if they create a real universe around them... hm... ok.. its already there right, because they are too. Anyways.. they find a way to create organic life, because they want to really live it, not just simulate it. Now the conscious is uploaded to an organic (human) mind, to actually really "live the movie", not just simulate it... Mrgh... getting a knot in my head. Plus I'm not sure, if this is now the simulation for some software running somewhere or if its what we all are (mis)lead to believe?

I need a whisky... I don't care, if some programmer "codes" it into my glass, as long as the taste is part of the data feed 🤖

Sort:  

Does the idea that we humans have invented computers resonate and use an invention and use is only possible because this computer knowledge has already been "implanted" in us through higher machinery, so to speak?

Hm... it has a kind of God connection for me. The belief in higher powers (whether they are called Odin, Zeus, Shiva or Deep Thought ;-)), I mean to discover in your answer. Computer almightiness is just another form of advanced entity, if I understand you correctly. You do not exclude the possibility that human imagination, which can develop machine fantasies, did not draw them from within itself, but could be dependent on another form of Schöpfungsgestalt?

Since I cannot answer this with yes or no, I leave it to the imagination and think that it makes you an artist, who does not give the many apparatuses and mechanisms to the beautiful female bodies as an addition for nothing.

But I would blame the human spirit of invention and the insanely long evolutionary pace for the fact that from the flint to the rocket ignition it is actually the human being who came up with all this. Savouring the last ounce of uncertainty, because in trying to find out what is mysterious is the salt in the soup that keeps an idle leisure thinker and philosopher like me (and you) on the go.

Very amusing, that reminds me of the Buddhists, who don't shy away from bringing a lot of deities into play, if you look at the work of art of the wheel of life and above all their stories around these deities!

The longing to finally be an organic body again, to equate it with the longing to finally be no organic body! But an ethereal, immortal. Laughter!

I see that we understand each other, because at some point in the universe even the immortals crave some flesh again.

Did I tell you about Lestat the vampire? Who, according to the story of Anne Rice, falls for a body thief and lets him steal his vampire super body (through a kind of mental telepathy act). And when the vampire, finally stuck in a human man, has to deal with all the evils of this body full of grief and horror: Peeing, hunger, cold, sweating and the sexual drive that our now snobbish vampire carries out with great disgust:)
