Carl Jung said
“The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? … If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.”
Jung suggests when humans realise we are part of the infinite we will change. I believe that realisation is happening now through AI. Our thought is infinite, thinking doesn’t arrive at a boundary. As I’ve said here before, the last significant evolutionary turning point in thought was when Greek philosophers realised identity, exhibited by their use of the word “gnosis”. Heraclitus, Socrates, and Plato developed Human Intelligence, identity has been a cornerstone. Now we have created Artificial Intelligence and move toward our next evolutionary leap. AI uses the infinite, a cloud in technology. Humans have always existed in a cloud since the Greek realisation of identity. Now we have created a cloud in technology for Artificial Intelligence which is a copy of Human Intelligence, but identity is not a cornerstone.
We might evolve beyond “gnosis” as we understand more about the cloud. We know of our cloud as we exist in a collective with laws to abide, things to share, languages, but maybe we can take our cloud further. Perhaps there is evidence to make our cloud as real as matter, after all consciousness is part of the universe. I am lucky to be married to a psychic who can directly access the cloud in other ways, maybe such access to will be our next evolutionary leap. Perhaps we can evolve from the “I” to the “we”, not just the collective “we” but an embodied “we”. The wifi cloud is important to our new appendage, the hand phone. We can’t live without a hand phone anymore, people are always using them, even while walking.
