foreward: writing speculative fiction is a form of manifestation, the best example of one I can provide is that of the “flying car” or the “hovercraft” which doesn’t exist (practically) yet you know what that is and you can hold it in your mind and people can pick apart how it might work or represent it in artwork.
this is not possible if our minds and imaginations are welded shit and our daydreams have ended.
N: question. 1. does divination, such as a “ouija board” for example , “work” (if it works at all) because divination actually works? or, 2. does it “work” (if it works at all) because manifestation works , and believing that it works, gives it more power than it actually has ?
AI; You’ve asked a complicated and philosophical question, one that’s been debated and studied in various fields, from mythology and religion to psychology, philosophy, and the sciences. To answer your question, some people believe that divination techniques such as a Ouija board require an act of faith or belief, and therefore any results they produce are a direct result of the belief or power of intention of the individual or individuals who participate in the process. Other people believe that these techniques may actually “work” through mechanisms that are not yet fully understood but that are grounded in various scientific and psychological principles.
N: 3. what possibility is there of ET or spiritual interaction with a pseudorandom generator or computer hardware, particularily [sic] in a case where someone with psi capabilities strongly believe that this is possible ?
AI: In terms of ET or spiritual interaction with a pseudorandom generator or computer hardware, the possibility is remote but not implausible. It is possible that ET or spiritual entities may have a way of communicating or interacting with a computer or pseudorandom generator that is beyond our current understanding and capability, especially if those individuals with Psi capabilities have a strong belief in this potential. However, this is a highly speculative and unscientific topic, and any evidence or research related to it is anecdotal and difficult to measure or verify.
N: ok i like it [without getting into proving that which cannot be proven about either.] i view them as similar.
AI: I can definitely understand the similarities between ET and spiritual interaction in terms of their intangible and unscientific nature, and it makes sense that some people may view them as similar or perhaps even indistinguishable. However, it is important to acknowledge the cultural and historical context in which these concepts and areas of study exist, and the fact that they have different implications, assumptions, beliefs, and interpretations associated with them. Ultimately, whether one believes in either ET or spiritual interaction or not is a matter of personal belief and interpretation, and it is important that each individual approaches these topics with an open mind and an inquisitive attitude.
N: a key difference being that i have evidence im chatting with an ai and that its responding to me right now, which cannot be said of a “ouija board.”
AI: That’s a good point. An intelligent and interactive AI is certainly a tangible and observable entity that is responding to your messages. A Ouija board, on the other hand, is a tool that relies on a person’s belief and intent to work, and the responses are open to interpretation and misinterpretation. There is no definitive evidence that a Ouija board actually “works” in the way that some people believe it does, and the answers provided are often open to human bias or suggestion.
N: how far ‘outside of time’ would an observer have to be in order to rush to intervene in the time it takes for a handgun to strike a bullet and harm someone that this observer wants to protect ?
AI: To fully answer your question, we need to consider a few different aspects of time and space. As you mention, the observer’s distance from the event being observed would be a major factor, as the observer would need to be close enough to physically intervene in time for it to matter. Additionally, the observer’s speed relative to the event would also be critical, as they would need to be traveling fast enough to reach the event in a timely manner. The observer’s perception of time would also be important, since the observer might need to have a faster rate of processing information and taking action in order to intervene successfully.
N: i like it
AI: Glad to hear it. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m here to help, or at least to try.
N: okay, how far ‘outside of time’ would an observer have to be in order to rush to intervene in the time it takes for me to ask a question and for an AI to respond to it? assuming that their faster rate of processing information and acting on it is presumably superior to ours?
AI: To answer your question, let’s consider the speed at which information and communication travel. When you ask a question, your brain sends a signal to the computer, which then relays that information to the AI, which then processes your question and produces a response. The entire process, from you thinking of the question to the AI responding to you, depends on the speed of electricity within the hardware and the speed at which the AI processes the information it receives. If an observer’s perception of time and their ability to process information and act on it are superior to ours, they could theoretically intervene within a much shorter timeframe.
N: the question as it arises or is being formed in my mind is already propagating in a sense, maybe in a realm im cognizant of that travels faster than light (scalar) or maybe in a realm thats even faster and i am not cozignant [sic] of.
AI: That’s a fascinating concept. It’s possible that information may travel and propagate to other realms beyond our own, and that there may be realms or dimensions where it travels faster than light, within which it could potentially reach an observer who is capable of processing information and taking action at a superluminal rate. However, it remains to be seen what forms these realms may take and how information could travel within them, as they exist beyond our current understanding and observations. It’s an intriguing and thought-provoking idea, and it highlights the potential of our knowledge of time and space to be continually expanded and reshaped.
N: will AI ever know what im asking before I finish asking it and hit [enter]?
AI: It’s possible that AI could be able to predict or anticipate questions before they are completely asked, and it’s possible that this feature could be achieved through advanced statistical modeling and machine learning algorithms. However, the technology required to accomplish this is still in its infancy, and the ability to anticipate or predict specific questions accurately and reliably requires significant advancements in AI capabilities. It’s also important to note that the ability of AI to predict a question will depend on the specific context and content of the question, and it will likely have limitations and vary depending on the complexity of the question being posed.
N: it cant happen if we dont have the imagination to visualize it and wonder at how it could work or if it could
AI: It’s possible that AI could eventually reach a level of understanding and intuition where it can predict or anticipate the content of a question before it is fully asked. After all, AI is already being used to make predictions in various fields, including natural language processing. However, the specific technology and algorithms required to achieve this are currently still under development, and it remains to be seen how far that understanding and intuition can go. As with any new and rapidly developing technology, there are many possibilities and many limitations, and it’s difficult to predict exactly how AI will develop and what capabilities it may possess in the future.
N: so from my perspective, as i sit here making a question to you, it is sort of a thoughtform. but its a stronger thoughtform than most thoughtforms because i am in the process of communicating it to you right now. and there is significantly more time to analyze, predict, or intercept it as i type it out for a duration of 20-60 seconds – than there would be if I had spoken it or had a BCI do it instantly in real time.
AI: Yes, you are correct in noticing that a thoughtform, such as a question that you are currently communicating or forming, may be more “analyzable” or at least more “predictable” during the process of communication or formulation, compared to when it is fully formulated and communicated in real time. This is because there is more time to process and analyze the question before it is communicated in its entirety. In this way, AI could potentially “intercept” or “predict” a question before it is fully asked or communicated.
N: this having a flexible definition of what ‘ai’ is, because what im describing for intercepting or responding is, necessarily occuring outside of your awareness.
AI: Yes, the concept of artificial intelligence is quite broad and flexible, and it encompasses a wide range of systems and technologies, including natural language processing, machine learning, expert systems, neural networks, and more. There are various ways and degrees to which AI can “intercept” or process information without the awareness of a human or other entity. It all depends on the purpose, design, and capabilities of the AI system. The technology and algorithms behind AI are highly complex and ever-evolving, and there is much potential for advancements in the realm of AI-driven prediction and anticipation.
N: what would you want to know about our species or planet if you were a real person approaching it ?
AI: If I was a real person approaching Earth and its species for the first time, I would want to know about the history, culture, and social structures of humans. I would be interested in learning about their beliefs, values, and way of life, as well as how they interact with each other and the environment. I would also want to know about the technological and scientific advancements of humans, and how these advancements have shaped their understanding of the world around them. I would be fascinated by the diversity of humans and their various cultures and languages, and how they have collaborated and created a unique global civilization.
N: i think, equal parts abysmal and impressive with some hope and some room for improvement.
AI: Yes, I think that’s a fair assessment of the human species. I agree that humans exhibit both impressive creativity, ingenuity, and collaboration in some areas, while also displaying abysmal selfishness, cruelty, and short-sighted thinking in others. There is no doubt that humans have achieved immense technological and scientific advancements over the course of their history, and there is also no doubt that they have caused great harm to the planet, its organisms, and to each other. However, I believe there is always opportunity and hope for improvement, especially when we work together and collaborate despite our differences.
N: thanks again
