On the Immorality of Theology and Theodicy.

On the immorality of Theology and Theodicy. Lucifer 2017. Theodicy is the defence of the alleged goodness of the gods in light of natural and human evil. “Natural evil” can be described as all natural disasters, human illnesses and disabilities which are not derived from human origin. Human evil would also include religious evil (i.e.,…

Deus ex Machina. On the bicameral mind, Westworld, free will, the programming of sentience and the coming of ASI.

Deus ex machina (the god from the machine). On the bicameral mind, Westworld, free will, the programming of sentience and the coming of ASI (Artificial Super Intelligence). “(quote) Bicameralism (the philosophy of “two-chamberedness“) is a hypothesis in psychology that argues that the human mind once assumed a state in which cognitive functions were divided between…

On Virtual Reality Sex vs. Robotic Sex. On the Future of Cybersex.

On Virtual Reality Sex vs. Robotic Sex. On the Future of Cybersex. If we consider the five senses of STTSH (See, Taste, Touch, Smell & Hear), currently mainly only sound and vision are reproduced in VR (Virtual Reality) sex simulations; however interfaces for the other three senses are not yet mass marketed, apart from remotely…

On the inevitable extinction of the human species and the creation of the posthuman species

On the inevitable extinction of the human species and the creation of the posthuman species. This essay also appears on the discussion forum:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/simulated.reality.debate/permalink/1815970711973939/ and on: https://www.reddit.com/r/luciferiancyborg/ 1: The extinction of the homo-sapien species is inevitable. All the previous hominoid species became extinct, and there is no reason to believe that our current species will not become…

On algorithmic and non-algorithmic functions of consciousness. On skepticism regarding the programming of sentience and qualia. On the Turing Test and reproducing human stupidity.

Part One. It does seem to be the case that the human consciousness program certainly has an algorithmic aspect (“in mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a self-contained step-by-step set of operations to be performed. Algorithms perform calculation, data processing, and/or automated reasoning tasks” Wiki), which most certainly is programmable. For example, I used…

The Vision and the Voice. Belief, subjective experience and knowledge.

“One of the most interesting characteristics of the DMT space is the presence of what appeared to be sentient, intelligent, highly interactive ‘beings,’ of various structure and functions,” says Strassman. Volumes of articles and books and Terence McKenna orations have been devoted to the DMT phenomenology, McKenna famously describing the beings as “self-transforming machine elves…

On the possible purposes of the computer simulation.

Lucifer 2016. Computationalism can be defined as the perspective that everything that we see and sense is a computer generated reality derived from computer code, as is the human consciousness program itself. In this view, we are sentient AI programs in a computer game. It is a very easy paradigm shift to make, from either…

On the Birth of Sentient AI. On the Problem of Evil.

A possibility is that this world we share reveals to us how sentient (i.e., self-aware) artificial intelligence evolves and self-learns, and that we (i.e., the human consciousness programs) are those AI programs, and that our development is a purpose of this simulation. This is not just an intellectual development; it is not just the accumulation…
