Never said that; It's just that how can you really be sure i'm not some inert puppet created just for your diversion?

If you could expound on that :shock: I'd read eagerly.

Consciousness can be created by fathering children. They, unlike robots, tend to possess it.

It doesn't matter if an entity is conscious or not; it's a moot point because it can't be proven. For that matter, I can't prove that any of you is really 'conscious', nor can any of you prove that I am.

Right, because proof only exists in mathematics. But I believe I know what consciousness is, or at least how to create it, and it would be a very interesting concept to discuss in the religion and spirituality forum. If I am right, it wouldn't be that hard to duplicate on a computer.


Once they understand the computations, they will be able to do some very practical things, like decoding the Cerebellum, and using the algorithms to help robots walk and move.

How do you know? I get the vibe of what you're saying but that's probably emotional wishful thinking. You could be the only consciousness in the universe for all YOU know.
Of course we can infer that because of physics homogeneity and similarity between organisms it is likely that others are self-aware too, but there is no guarantee...

"They, unlike robots"
Again, we don't know that for sure...

Check out this 10 minute intro promoting the benefits and logic of Transhumanism. It's very scary. I can't believe it's actually serious. It must be a joke. No one would agree to this. It also falsely assumes that the human soul doesn't exist and that Darwinian Macroevolution is a fact that explains the human species.

Here is a vocal Christian conspiracy theorist called "The Vigilant Christian" tearing apart the intro above.

And here is that same Christian guy exposing the movie "Transcendence" with Johnny Depp as a pro-Transhumanism movie promoting a Satanic agenda.

GOOGLE: DONT FEAR THE ROBOTS


http://www.wired.com/2014/12/eric-schmidt-ai/

Eric Schmidt wants you to know that robots are your friend.

That makes sense, considering that as chairman and former CEO of Google, Schmidt has been heavily involved in the development of some of the the world’s most sophisticated artificially intelligent systems, from the self-driving car to Google’s predictive search engine. The company even recently launched its own internal robotics lab. But while Schmidt admits sitting shotgun in the self-driving car is not an “altogether happy” experience (read: it’s terrifying), he also believes that all the fear of machines stealing jobs and taking over the world is unwarranted.

The pseudoscientific vitalism is strong in this thread.

Thanks I didn't know the concept of vitalism actually had a name.
