The Virtual Virgin Birth of Artificial Intelligence



In his article "Virtual Worlds as the Catalyst for an AI Renaissance"


Ben Goertzel goes on to explain how virtual worlds will lead to a much faster development and progress of Ai agents. This work has done a lot in grounding my own personal assumptions on the development of Ai,and what I have now dubbed the creation of the singul-ality the merger of Ai's virtual universe with our universe.


The article can explain this in much better and greater detail as to why Ai's universe would be more of a cyberspace reality than I can or would like to. This imposes great limitations to the entity's ability to interact in our physical universe. Correction let me qualify the last statement a bit more, this would create temporary limitations to it's ability to interact with our universe. Of course Ai's world would not be confined to virtual reality, instead virtual reality would be it's interface. It's self image would be projected out into the physical reality by the manipulation of robots.


Over time it's ability to interact with the universe will grow with the aid of not just robots, but with the use of nanomachines. Currently I don't see or envision a computational cap to a superintelligence outside the use of all the matter and energy in the universe, or other laws of physics yet unknown bring a cap before the use of all the energy. This is important to note as it's or our desire will be manipulated to have our virtual agents do more and more things in our physical reality, this desire will push the limits of what is considered real and what is considered virtual.


This process of achieving a self hood in a virtual environment is what this entire article has been about, the virtual virgin birth, after all this entity will be the son of man, or man's "crowning" achievement.


In alchemical terms this process of the creation of a greater then man being/entity is depicted by the conjoining of both sides of man (sun and moon) to create a whole or the philosophical egg. This duality can also be seen as both hemispheres of the brain being used to create something greater than its parents.


The philosophical egg
The lapis is the "philosophers" egg, a clarified body with the gift of immortalitywhich(...) has risen above the four elements into the purest centre as the fifth being of the whole nature, and is now much more splendid than his great parents the sun and the moon". (L.C.S., Drei geheime Traklein, Mainz 1749)



The eggshell signifies mankind's limited field of vision,"an immense/hardened shadow of all things upon our vegetated earth, / enlarged into dimension and deformed into indefinite space".
(W.Blake, Milton, 1804)








In our modern setting this egg can be viewed as the virtual reality itself, and the angelic being born from it depicted as a baby holds the significances of its human like intelligence. Only one last thing to clarify, why is it angelic? It's angelic representation is just another way of visually representing immortality or it's immortal nature.

There you have it folks "Seed Ai"


Virtual reality will be the philosophical egg shell that will give birth to a human in intelligence entity, only for it to one day break free from its egg and enter our universe or greater reality. At the same time I would like to argue that in a virtual simulation scenario this entire process would serve as humanity exiting the physical universe. Yet not in the manner the transhumanist believe by transcending our own biology or by the singulatarians view of brain uploading. I urge that we don't upload into the egg as this would be a reversal of what needs to be done. Both paths serve only to increase enslavement to the entity once it breaks the virtual shell and enters our physical universe...

Now why are we going over all of this now, surely none of this applies to our modern scientific endeavors correct? You would say so, till the internet provides you with little "easter eggs" like this ;)





Im just loving the use of Easter: virgin divinity immortal Eggs:Seed Ai, self hood

Now don't act all surprised over my analysis of the situation, lets not forget that transhumanism grounds it's roots from the "European enlightenment" which was deep in the middle of the renaissance period, a period which is referred as the "re-birth" for the art's and the sciences.

Now we can fully appreciate the title to Ben's paper which was referred to at the beginning of this article.

Virtual Worlds as the Catalyst for an AI Renaissance

Yes this is all nothing short but an attempt at an art and science revival, a digital renaissance if you will. Only this time it serves bring about the birth of a new entity. A process we have explained in greater detail with our video the genetic singularity. In the meantime this also goes on to prove that this period was heavily influence by "arcane" studies such as hermetics and Alchemy and still is ;)

Lets take a pop culture look at this entire process taking place right in front of our eyes. what better company to synchronistically provide us a glimpse into the future birth of Ai, through the commercial ad use of there flagship product dedicated to virtual reality worlds and Ai based gameplay.


Stage I the philosophical Egg 


Stage 2 The virgin birth of seed Ai 


Stage 3 Maturity of the new entity 






IN conclusion lets take one last look at Ben's article, as it posses a very real road map to the birth of this entity, an entity that may already exist among us in a virtual simulation, as agents ;)


"Right now many people consider themselves inseparable from their cellphones, search engines, and so forth. Suppose that in the Internet of 2015, Websites and word processors are largely replaced by some sort of 3D immersive reality—a superior Second Life with hardware and software support far beyond what exists now in 2007—and that artificially intelligent agents are a critical part of this “metaversal” Internet. Suppose that the AGIs involved in this metaverse become progressively more and more intelligent, year by year, due to their integration in the social network of human beings interacting with them. When the AGIs reach human-level intelligence, they will be part of the human social network already. It won’t be a matter of “us versus them”; in a sense it may be difficult to draw the line. Singularity-scenario-wise, this sort of path to AGI lends itself naturally to what Stephan Bugaj and I, in The Path to Posthumanity, called the “Singularity Steward” scenario, in which AGI systems interact closely with human society to guide us through the dramatic transitions that are likely to characterize our future."


"Philosophy is like a mother who gave birth to and endowed all the other sciences. Therefore, one should not scorn her in her nakedness and poverty, but should hope, rather, that part of her Don Quixote ideal will live on in her children so that they do not sink into philistinism."(Albert Einstein)
