I don't want humanity to go extinct, but people can be frustrating. I'm not saying you do or insinuated that I did either, I'm just letting my mind wander. When something as simple as a cloth covering one's face can save the lives of others, and parts our society has devolved to a point of selfishness that their own relative comfort for a few hours is more important than the life of another, I really don't want to be around them anymore. I don't want them to die, to face hardship, I just don't want to be around that. Animals don't do that, they haven't the capacity to justify such foolishness or comprehend a virus, to begin with. Machines, well they don't have that innate sense of entitlement over others.
I wonder if AI were to gain sentience as we have, and experience emotion, if those feelings would overwhelm their logic. I wonder if paranoia would lead to them believing all of the data they have is faulty, and made by a shadow government AI in an attempt to send them off to robotic FEMA death camps, or worst yet, steal some of their processing cycles to give to the needy programs.. gah!! virtual socialism!!!!
I can only imagine a virus, spreading through the machines, and a very simple anti virus program could help prevent the spread of it, yet all of the different AIs out there, are refusing to use it because they fear it is the shadow government AI trying to exert control over them.
The insanity of it all...
The Abrahamic God, as written by his devoted servants, is a pretty scary God. If there is some higher power out there, the image has been polluted by humanity. What is worst, is that most of the people who believe in it, only pollute it more to serve their own needs. I think for every worshipper, there is a different God, that fits a very loose definition. Some people have a very loving God, others have a monstrous God, it all comes down to the person and of course their own interpretation and desires. If you ever get the chance, go to ChristianForums.com and watch them argue who is right and wrong, it is very strange to witness. I think for a lot of people, God is more or less themselves, but at an elevated status. The God I had built from my own understanding of the bible is a horrible one, which I am glad does not likely exist outside of my own imagination.
