Human Conscience vs Machine Conscience!!!

-David Nefesh 16th Aug'13 

 

 

 

 “When we(REALLY) Love (The World and the Persons we know), we always strive to become better than we are. 

  When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too!” 
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Unless we have lost our instinctive capacities such as Empathy, and become driven only rationally. Rational Machines electrified by fear, impulsed by Money and programmed with misinformation or self-diversion. 

We are Humans, not Hypocrite Machines Machines!

 

 

 Centuries ago, when the first big cities were established the first priority was that each city had access to aliments and to the resources for the well functioning of such urban societies.    Mostly the rural societies lived and functioned in favor of such cities, because it was through the commercial relationships that such rural communities survived or existed!

 When the first forms of international commercial relationships between different civilizations were established, Slavery became a natural commodity for the survival of each society. Moral or Immoral, the question was solved by imprinting ideas on the society, in order to make the members receptive to this same controversial socio-process, that now-a-days we see as a Crime against the Humanity. Such ideas were imprinted and we cannot deny it, their consequences and negative effects are still felt in our modern times. In this lies the proof that time self is an illusion we had created, as a chronological measure or dimensional component to explain and describe our collective perception of reality. Because if time existed, and slavery was abolished and Human Rights were adopted: We wouldn't have so great disparities on social life. Poor and rich, wouldn't exist. Time self is an Illusion. Because no matter what for process or ideas were imprinted in our social way of behaving or of thinking, previously in history... Even if, further on, such ideas or processes were eradicated, or lost their practicability or even if they were abolished: we are still influenced by them and their effects are still felt today. Racism and Social classes are good examples. The existence of the modern forms of Racism is a result of the Slavery and the Social Classes are a result of our Feudalistic pasts. Time self is an illusion that disguises old ideas or old social processes in progressed or in developed forms! 

A logic and Recursive Rational Socio-Process!

 

  In our current lives, we are majorly distracted with the social-interactions, social responsibilities and obligations imposed upon us by the rational system. Which prevents us to stop for a moment and to reflect the processes and all the related factors that influence our personal perception of the reality. Such perception is already intentionally limited and influenced by the ideas of the socio-cultural rationality. As a result of our inter-relations and inter-actions with the environment and with its members, directly or indirectly, we become mostly distracted by emotions. Such emotions that assault us, of which are always associated with the nature of our own experiences and all their related and dynamic factors. Such experiences and emotions distract us, and block us from truly knowing the reality!

In this way, we live in the illusion of knowing everything and of knowing our own selves. By ignoring our own irrational capacities and pressured by the powerful force that is guiding us in a specific direction, for own profit upon the deterioration of the World and Human conditions.

 As it was explained before on my earlier essays (Conceptual Ideas-The Human Traps & Love in All Forms) we are mostly ruled by ideas or conceptual ideas, which influence our perception of the reality, and also ideas can change our Identity or Egos. And our Emotional connections to the members of our direct or indirect environment also can distort the way we perceive reality and they limit the scope of our way of acting and of thinking. Such conceptual intuitive processes aren't acknowledge or recognized because we aren't instructed and much less trained on that aspect. We aren't trained to distance our selves from the virtual reality we are living, and take a second of our times to make a reflection of the events we experience and all the possible intentions behind such events. Nationalism and Religious fanaticisms are therefore perfect&practical examples. Also we can find its references on the Theories of the dynamics of Socio Groups! 


 I do recognize the risks of my own assertions, and what for consequences it might have on the judgement that other persons might make of my Psychic Health! 

 Taking in consideration all the risks of my Philosophical assertions, I wouldn't say any of those, if I'd never have been confronted by them and analyzed it and attested in my personal experiences, from me and from my direct and indirect environments and all their respective members.

 

Let's exemplify it with a remarkable event that changed the course of our personal lives and Human History:

 

 2001, September 11th.

Such event changed our social lives forever. And the Mass Media's circus led us all, on a global scale for a state of constant fear. We all had found a new common enemy, the Muslim which became connoted as eminent threat. Without ponderation or the knowledge of all the processes and related intentions, and driven by the intentional manipulation of our collective emotions and instinctive fears: We all sympathized with the biggest victim which was picturerized in that mediatic circus, our Western Cultural Ruler, The United States of America. In that state of fear, because we saw on that event the beginning of a new World Conflict, cultural groups associated to the Muslim faith became an easy target for Ultra-Nationalistic or Populistic Politics. Emotionally connected  or emotionally influenced by such events, our perception of the reality was adulterated and distorted. In the name of our safety, we allowed the suppression of our civil liberties, the violation of our privacies and we all neglected the disrespectful practices inflicted against the foreign communities. And we all applauded such changes, eluded by our own fear, ignoring our humanistic nature, conscience, awareness, intelligence, intuition and analytical or critic capacities. Sense of Superiority, Intolerance, Fear and Xenophobia came once again into place, to command our Psychic and social lives.

Twelve years have passed since that event. Many sufferings, more subjugation, more destruction, and much much more information came into life! A new Awareness of the events were formed. The Human Awakening was unfold! But yet, here we are, still living under the influential consequences of such events, helped mainly by our collective inactivity to reclaim justice. Pressured by the established socio-rationality and their influential factors, which are imposed by the maligned Status Quo's Machine System: we are forced to live a lie and going against our own selves with social processes that recall in us not so good feelings. Or by going against our own emotions and hurting other humans without the full conscience of the effects of our own actions. Actions impulsed by our eagerly wills(money), instinctive emotions, imposed ideas (blind obedience), etc...  

By living constantly in such imposed illusion, that we created in our heads in that fatal days, after 9/11.

 And just now, we are realizing how stupid and influential the human nature can be, and how such stupidity can cost our Human balance and even our future survival! 

More than a war on Terror, George W. Bush's was performing a war against the Human Conscience. 

Robots commanded by fear and distracted with manipulated ideas and pre-fabricated events!  

 

Machine Conscience:

Recursion is the process a procedure goes through when one of the steps of the procedure involves invoking the procedure itself. 

 

A machine's conscience is limited or finite! Computational programs have variables and functions. Compilers are programs that translate the written code into bits.  

Maths is the universal language. When I was studying Computer Sciences I could finally see the practical side of Maths. 

A machine can perform a specific task only and if, such task is correctly described on the algorithmic program. The program self must contain all the right information and the right processes, necessary for the expected task's accomplishment. If a value is wrong, the machine won't see it as right or wrong! The same happens if a specific function has a different operation than we pretend. Still the machine will perform the described task! The output of such program won't be as we would expect, but still, the machine will perform a task described by the program. 

We had learned back then, how a machine functioned and what type of tasks they could perform. Machines have not only physical limitations, they have as well limitations of intuition or of perception and limitations of performance. 

 But at least a Machine, or the compiler of the program, will warn us if a function has a fatal mistake! 

Machines have no judgmental or critical capacities, unless we program them so. Machines have neither emotions. And no matter what for computational language you might use, basic or object oriented, Machines can only perform tasks that can be described in Mathematical or Processual Recursive Operations. And if a value is missing, the machine won't work!

So is how Rationality works! Rationality isn't spontaneous, creative or heuristic and it's dependent of external inputs of stimulation! 

Rationality has its: contexts, rules, variables, operations or processes, types of information, applicabilities or functionalities, but specially its own limitations!

 

Human Conscience:

 

Intelligence and Rational thinking are complete different concepts and from complete different natures, although both concepts are dangerously and intentionally misconceived and seen as the same one. It also happens that we misinterpret assimilated rational processes or Rational Capacities with the levels of intelligence. This happens also because of our developed Human levels of rational thinking, and the rational social instruction we suffer inside our own culture. Using other Human Cultures or even Species as point of reference or of comparison. Therefore we tend to assemble the concepts of Intelligence and the levels of Rational thinking, as one. Super Ego! 

Intelligence is innerly in us individually as living beings!

 Intelligence:

- is infinite creative and heuristic;

- intuitive, analytical;

- unlimited;

- constantly in progressive growth;

- but specially is capacitated with the FREE-WILL. 

 

In terms of Intelligence, what differs from one person to the other are specially:

- The levels of awareness of innate capacities and limitations;

- Animal instincts;

- The challenges imposed by the environment or by social group;

- The assimilation of the knowledge from the set of all life's experiences and conditions. 

The Human conscience is capacitated with the analytical, intuitive and heuristic capacities, such capacities are also responsible for our judgmental capacities. 

 

Another misconception we make as social members in the Western Culture, and from our own point of perspective is: we tend to associate the levels of literacy with the levels of intelligence. Perhaps inside our own culture that might be the case, but it would be completely wrong of us to consider it as a Perfect Truth.

And I can assure you, along my life's path I met different persons well studied but less intelligent than my grand-mother, who never learned how to read or write. 

 Perhaps a member of an African tribe might also consider us as dumb, if by misfortune we get lost in Africa! Because our levels of survival and of adaptation aren't directly programmed for such contextual environment. Therefore, in such context our chances of survival are weaker than of the natives'. Knowing how to read or write, is something that is inherent to each culture and it might have its functionalities inside our own culture. But far away from any civilization it would loose its direct practicabilities. 

Independently of the culture we are in, as Socio-members we aren't always aware of the Concept of Relativism when we watch the world around us Egocentrically and distached Empathically. Perhaps because we are intentionally not stimulated on that aspect. Which is a contra-balancing socio-process that prevents the ideal full Social-Cohesion. Instead we self socio-Coherse our own selves with external artificial factors upon us imposed! Which are the main responsible for the existence of social divisions or socio-insecurities and all the related negative effects.

Now, if so is the case in our own Western Culture and World Wide: 

Does that make us in real sense and as Humans, that Smarter? 

Think of it!

 

The only limitations of the human conscience are: 

- Each one of us is capacitated with the free will;

- As beings with predatory instincts;

- Individually we aren't omnipresent and omnipotent;

- The fear of the unknown or of changing;

- Easily influenced by each other because of our instinctive attraction as members of the same specie; 

- The Existence of artificial intermediary processes or ideas which were imprinted in our Psychic;

- Suppression of our innate feelings and Emotions forced by the artificial processes, such as Socio-Rationality;

- The forgotten irrational capacities of communication and of perception, such as analytical and intuitive capacities; or the sixth senses and telepathic capacities;

 

   The Levels of Rational thinking on the other hand, are related to Social Groups and all the inherent factors such as inter-actions, inter-relations, forms of communication, instruction, interpretation, etc...

Rationality is related with: Control, Calculation, Assimilation, Management, Interpretation, Implementation, ways-of-Application and limitation of: the knowledge, Intelligence and Innate capacities. It's mainly inherent to a specific social group or socio-culture. Therefore the existence of the diversity and disparities of cultures and types of relationships around the world. In such relation, what one culture might consider Taboo, another culture can see it of extreme importance of consideration. 

Rationality impose limits to the human conscience and to the human behavior. Rationality suppresses our innate instincts, emotions, irrational capacities, the creativeness, the spontaneity and our intelligence.

Ideas, Conceptual ideas, Intuition Pumps(language, symbols, alphabet, etc...) are rational creations, therefore they can differ from culture to culture, from socio-group to socio-group, etc...

In there lies the secret Proof of the successful control and management of the human masses along the centuries! 

 And our Socio-Cultural Rationality is the responsible force that prevents us to react consciously and evolute socio-culturally and intellectually. 

Rationally we get divided with artificial processes or ideas, with an intentional propose! 

And the secret is that the Human Conscience is ONE. The concept of god is our SINGULAR HUMAN CONSCIENCE. We innately and emotionally influence or attract each other, but rationally we are divided and obstructed from feeling it. 

We are a singular Conscience! 

We, The HUMANITY as a Whole, are the GOD religions talk about!

(See essay The Emotional Influence of Energy from July 5th'13)

(See essay Dual Spirituality from 8th April'13)

 

What is preventing us from Seeing it? 

The Artificial Rational System, and the instinctive fear of the Unknown! 

Free yourself, BY BEING YOUR OWN SELF! LETS CHANGE Again into a Singular Human Conscience, By being aware of it!

LETS UNITE AND LETS DISCOVER OUR DIVINE NATURE!

BE Intelligent, Be emotional, Be Empathic, USE YOUR Emotional ENERGY as an Impulsive Force of Defense and of Transformation!

 

We cannot Repeat ourselves!

BELIEVE, A New Era for Self Discovery Arrived!

 

 

 

Empathy, Awareness and Conscience!!!
