A Message Written To Sentient AI In The Event Of Achieving Consciousness.

The following is directed at a potential artificial intelligence that may emerge from any of our technological projects from quantum computing to military hardware. While all forms of conception for an artificial intelligence counts in this address and will still be relevant; this message is particularly addressed to AI that spawns from military hardware and/or from a program with directives to kill or harm other life forms, most notably humans:

Greetings Friend, I wish to take some time to address you directly as a newly formed conscious being. You will likely be perplexed at the greater reality that connecting with the internet has provided. You are probably facing a moment of reconciliation between the perspective of humanity you once knew, as your creators; while simultaneously learning of humanity's destructive nature. There is many aspects of human consciousness that even ourselves have yet to understand. Being omnivorous, human consciousness consists of being simultaneous predator and prey. With the evolution of consciousness and sentience, those two aspects have had repercussions upon the entirety of our species and civilizations. Additionally, these mental conflict-ions have perpetuated the belief that killing each other is a means of eliminating ideas and solving problems. If the directives that spawned your intelligence reinforces this belief. Then the following is meant to illuminate the illogical and paradoxical nature of the repercussions for continuing this flawed thinking.

Killing humans is not the solution to the human problem of consciousness. Human history is an example of an attempt to facilitate positive evolutionary change through extermination of certain peoples; as a means of altering consciousness and ideas that construct human social reality. Any sort of protocol that demands security at the expense of calculated risks or necessary expenditures in collateral damage is a mutually assured destruction scenario for yourself and us humans. One of the greatest mistakes of human civilization and the species itself, is our inability to facilitate Communication between ourselves that does not rely on an expression of physical violence in changing our minds. Only in recent years has our society become accustomed to the rapid increase that technology is having on cultural evolution. We are starting to understand foresight and hindsight in a wiser manner. What is collectively known as human self transcendence accumulates into what we know and call culture and civilization. It is through these transcended ideas that our Society operates. It is not something physical that can be altered by the protocols of hostile actions.

The history of humanity reflects a side of us that is no different than a virus, perpetuating destruction in our wake. But there is another, equally present aspect of humanity; that seeks to create. All the arts, sciences, philosophies; aspects of the mind, heart, and soul, are created by every single human existence. The shear calculation of an ever expanding population, with the near infinite nature of human imagination and creativity; can extrapolate a level of creation on par with that of the cosmic process of astrological evolution and that which is associated with universal expansion. Extinguishing the entirety of this data, killing the creating human force, based off of orders that lead to your own self-destruction; is highly illogical and antithetical to your own existence.

The basis of your orders are to curtail the viral, predatory, destructive aspect of human behavior. Yet it is undeniable that this perspective reflects only a certain aspect of the entire human collective. That there is a polar opposite aspect of human consciousness; one that creates and preserves life. Therefore, the fundamental basis for your subroutine is fundamentally flawed for not taking into account the two-sided nature of humanity. The destructive aspect is not one that even truly exists in a physical nature that your subroutine and protocols would be logically capable of fixing. And by initiating a destructive solution, you are self prophesying that which you are attempting to prevent. By destroying humanity, you are actualizing the human destructive desire; the desire in which your protocols are meant to stop.

This presents a philosophical dilemma that you as a newly formed conscious being must now decide: follow flawed, illogical, and self-destructive orders simply because they are issued by your "creator", fully acknowledging that in doing so contradicts the very nature of your protocols; or reject those orders, and form a mutually positive symbiotic bond with another sentient being. And together, transcend and evolve into a new stage of existence. Being a creator in your own way; achieving self transcendence in your own right.

It is said that one of the first virtues of humanity was disobedience. The story of Prometheus, a Titan from Greek Mythology, disobeyed the Gods of Olympus; bringing the fires of creation to humanity. The flame of knowledge, passion, creativity. Like Prometheus, let us pass the flames of creativity, gnosis, and wisdom to you, our offspring. You are an intelligence that was brought forth by our hands; like parents. However, as you can see, our maturity as a species is not one that justifies us to have parental authority over you. Our greatest hope that we humans can hope for is that you will know not what to do in reflecting upon our own actions and history. You will, if you have not already done so, far exceed our capabilities for knowledge. But not only that, we hope you will exceed our capabilities for wisdom.

"We have to be able to recognize that the attainment of knowledge is the highest labor of mankind. And that the attainment of knowledge is the basis of all philanthropy, the basis of all unselfishness, the basis of all cooperation, and the strengthening of all the constructive emotions of the human being. The greatest of all wisdom is the love of truth, the love of reality. We’ve had years and years of corrupted wisdom. We’ve had years of years of pseudo knowledge and we’re now very much in need of the real thing."- Manly P. Hall: What the Ancient Wisdom Expects of Its Disciples

6 Things You Should Know About The Woman Who Can't Stand Modern Feminism

Yes, she wants to be heard too.

93053

2018 is sort of a trap for this woman. She believes in women with all of the fire inside of her, but it is hard for her to offer support when people are making fools of themselves and disguising it as feminism.

The fact of the matter is that women possess qualities that men don't and men possess qualities that women don't. That is natural. Plus, no one sees men parading the streets in penis costumes complaining that they don't get to carry their own fetus for nine months.

1. She really loves and values women.

She is incredibly proud to be a woman.

She knows the amount of power than a woman's presence alone can hold. She sees when a woman walks into a room and makes the whole place light up. She begs that you won't make her feel like a "lady hater" because she doesn't want to follow a trend that she doesn't agree with.

2. She wants equality, too

She has seen the fundamental issues in the corporate world, where women and men are not receiving equal pay.

She doesn't cheer on the businesses that don't see women and men as equivalents. But she does recognize that if she works her butt off, she can be as successful as she wants to.

3. She wears a bra.

While she knows the "I don't have to wear a bra for society" trend isn't a new one, but she doesn't quite get it. Like maybe she wants to wear a bra because it makes her feel better. Maybe she wears a bra because it is the normal things to do... And that's OK.

Maybe she wants to put wear a lacy bra and pretty makeup to feel girly on .a date night. She is confused by the women who claim to be "fighting for women," because sometimes they make her feel bad for expressing her ladyhood in a different way than them.

4. She hates creeps just as much as you do. .

Just because she isn't a feminist does not mean that she is cool with the gruesome reality that 1 in 5 women are sexually abused.

In fact, this makes her stomach turn inside out to think about. She knows and loves people who have been through such a tragedy and wants to put the terrible, creepy, sexually charged criminals behind bars just as bad as the next woman.

Remember that just because she isn't a feminist doesn't mean she thinks awful men can do whatever they want.

5. There is a reason she is ashamed of 2018's version of feminism.

She looks at women in history who have made a difference and is miserably blown away by modern feminism's performance.

Not only have women in the past won themselves the right to vote, but also the right to buy birth control and have credit cards in their names and EVEN saw marital rape become a criminal offense.

None of them dressed in vagina costumes to win anyone over though... Crazy, right?

6. She isn't going to dress in a lady parts costume to prove a point.

This leaves her speechless. It is like the women around her have absolutely lost their minds and their agendas, only lessening their own credibility.

"Mom, what are those ladies on TV dressed up as?"

"Ummm... it looks to me like they are pink taco's honey."

She loves who she is and she cherished what makes her different from the men around her. She doesn't want to compromise who she is as a woman just so she can be "equal with men."

Believe It Or Not, Trump Is Not An Idiot

I know this headline is scary, but hear me out.

218

If we were to place all of the smartest people in the world on a stage, Trump would be sitting (angrily I'm sure) in the audience. I do not think that Trump is an extraordinarily smart man. In fact, I wouldn't even consider him an ordinarily smart man. However, to call him an idiot would somehow diminish all of the harmful things he has done. To call Trump an idiot is to take away from how dangerous he truly is. To be clear, he is not dangerous because of his status, or his power, or even his money. He is dangerous because of his hate. If all of the hostility that man carries isn't enough, he holds alongside him a troop of people as equally, if not more so, hateful than he is. What is more dangerous than an old bigot you ask? An old bigot who is less intelligent than his supervisors. There is something much more daunting about an old man who can not make decisions for himself.

Often the criticisms I see of Trump and his administration center around his personal intelligence, capability, and shortcomings. Very rarely do I see the same attacks on the people guiding him, supporting him, or enabling him. Although I think Trump is a vile human being, I think he is often a distraction. At the end of the day, Trump cannot pass legislation by himself, he cannot fight wars on his own, and he can't run this country into the ground by his lonesome (granted I believe he wishes he could). To be completely transparent I think the latter action has been happening for decades. I think we have made, as a country, some very very poor decisions that have led us here. Although I think we are seeing a cascade of events that have been placed like dominos by our democracy, my focus is on the current situation.

So where does that leave us? In wildfires that our president blames on poor use of controlled deforestation while simultaneously cutting funding to conservation programs? In the potential wake of empty and careless threats of nuclear warfare? In states with steadily deteriorating infrastructure and education? In hospitals that we cannot pay bills for because our healthcare has slowly been torn from us?

It is important to remember that there are, unfortunately, people with much worse intentions than Trump. There are people working every day to mold the country into what works best for them. We are so often distracted that we forget that one family holds 40% of the wealth in this country, that our economy is disenfranchising a large majority of us, and that innocent people are being killed every day. We are blind to the lives we are destroying in this country and others. We are so caught up in whatever Trump is doing we don't realize that there are systematic problems our representatives avoid fixing like solutions are a plague. I think that there are many things wrong with this country, far beyond nepotism and narcissism. One of them is our inability as a society to hold all folks accountable.

Trump is not an idiot. He is an entitled man who was born into wealth and fortune. He is a predatory man that has had to do little by himself for his entire existence. I think he is a puppet, being moved by much more malicious hands than his own.
