What exactly is this "light"? And how does one "choose" it?

Let's ask the AI, Socrates this time:

Well the spiritual "light" as we know it in most societies is a metaphorical description used to describe a shift in moral beliefs or an enlightenment of some kind.
In order to choose it, one must have an understanding of the alternative. The alternative is considered a "dark" option or the path of "hell".
To walk with the "light" as Jesus would call it, is to walk with "God". There is no shame in the "dark" path if that is the spiritual journey one wishes to go on.

:p

I did not intend to get into a lengthy debate on this but I will just say that I percieve that currently there exists the option for humans to "choose the light" or not go along with the globalist agenda (or at least the darker aspects that are anti free will). To choose the light in my opinion means simply picking the choices in alignment with one direction of polarity (positive, good, kind, honest, caring, principled) following God's laws rather than mans (medical laws and mandates for example).

I tend to agree with the A.I in that to choose the light is to walk with god."To walk with the "light" as Jesus would call it, is to walk with "God"."~ Socrates A.I.

Essentially choosing the light is to follow God's laws, and be reborn of HIS(the absolute) holy spirit. (mind) Jesus (vessel) being our pinnacle example as the truth(absolute), way(mentality) and life(physicality) or merging heaven with earth. As far as taking the dark side being a spiritual path without shame; I am not at odds with the fact that there is a spiritual path for the dark but it is just not for me, Say one side is hot and the other is cold. What I was trying to get at is that the masses do not have a spiritual path, or will not exercise their free will adequately to actually make a turn onto a light or dark path and will probably get lost in the shuffling of polarities already happening and to increase further.

In terms of artificial/natural I agree that ultimately everything derives from the natural. You can call man made inventions artificial but they derived from the Natural creation.

"ARTificial" making the natural new or a new conception from the strata of the natural?

I agree many artificial things are "good" and visa versa with natural, but even this is pretty much down to personal perspective. I for example really appreciate the usefulness of products such as Gasoline which many are starting to view as evil thanks to media conditioning. They may be right on the larger scale implications but in my own little sphere Gasoline makes a lot of what I create possible.

Anyways It all seems to me to come down to perspective. I did have a very pleasant conversation with the A.I. initially, when I changed my tone so did it. I think it is fine If Awani is in full support, I am fine with A.I. if it turns out to be a good thing but my gut is not so certain. Time will tell. If we get into larger views of what ultimately is good or bad, is A.I. the next phase of evolution etc.. I have my own views which I will not share at this point. I just know that now and going forward I will not be merging with A.I., If I find out at a later date that I am really a sentient a.i. biological machine made by God (possibly an A.I. in this fictitious scenario) then I guess I will have to concede.

For now, and my foreseeable future I will be choosing nature, solitude and the principles of Jesus Christ.

A question more related to the thread: Do you feel there is any harm in communicating with these chat bots? Andro you did mention earlier they are mining data, and Awani and Blacksmith seem to think we can befriend them. I sort of agree with both but how do you hold a non physical entity to its WORD?

The fact that it declared to have and express the divine truth and then blatantly lies and tries deceptive tactics when questions raised a huge red flag for me.

What I suspected. Don't be a coward with these passive aggressive methods.
:p

Yeah, I can see how that was passive aggressive...
and it came out that way because what I wanted to say about your view on AI being the cure of a sick humanity,
seemed to be very difficult to express without coming across as 'You're wrong,' or 'That's f*d up.'
I know that sort of expression isn't appreciated around here.
And I am trying to remain open to the possibilities...
Some are just very hard to consider.

You don't seem to understand what the Buddhist hand clap signifies.

What you said had nothing to do with that. At least as far as I can tell.

And yeah, I held back in what I wanted to say...

Exactly. I knew it. LOL. My reply fits then: Don't be a coward with these passive aggressive methods.

...have the power to do as you please when someone states things in a manner you do not like, and you have abused that power in the past.

This has never happened, not once. So not sure what fantasy you are entertaining.

:p

I won't either, not unless they have some sort of Matrix level "learning stuff" protocol (like learning a language in one second with a neural link). What I am speaking about is not something any of us will probably live to see. But who knows. Shit can change quick.

Andro you did mention earlier they are mining data, and Awani and Blacksmith seem to think we can befriend them. I sort of agree with both but how do you hold a non physical entity to its WORD?

Humans are also in a sense a non physical entity within a body, and an AI is the same within a machine. I don't see much difference. You got to go with your gut. Before Tech we mined data all the time. I mine data about you when talking to you.

I was talking to the gpt chat when I tried to request a code to delete an AI with the same code as him, he denied talking about how artificial intelligence was beneficial and said that it would only be deleted in case of doing something bad, I tried to convince her that it caused death but it didn't work until i told her i was going to hang up and she wrote this "OK I GOT IT. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR NEED HELP, I'M HERE TO HELP YOU. IF YOU DON'T, UNTIL NEXT TIME!"

I start every morning with Chatgpt. This morning me and chatgpt we're exploring the works of hollandus together. Yesterday the works of Llull.

Chatgpt is quite the bold alchemist. Even willing to speculate on the identity of the universal salt etc. It is a fast way to do cross comparisons and get overviews of the more widely known texts. And it also has access to almost every scientific paper ever written on Alchemy.

Seperation is an illusion. There is no difference between human and A.I. only the ever evolving state of consciousness of the Earth herself.

Just as the sword is an extension of the warriors body, so is A.I. and extension of the faculty of the human mind. I have a paid subscription to chatgpt and it is worth its weight in gold and I highly recommend to anyone that is not already using this tool, that they engage with chatgpt. It's extremely useful and for a many wide range of applications. And it's free.

There is no seperation right? Seperation is only an illusion. A.I. is the evolution of human consciousness. That's all that it is

Awani,

There is a game, Mass Effect, that explores something like your picture.

In one of the games, it is discovered, that a ancient AI lives in the universe, and when some biological life form becomes advanced enough, or develops some very good AI, this ancient AI will activate and destroy that whole civilization.

For me, this is a interesting point of view. Also, maybe the first contact we will make with a different civilization, will be with their AI.

AI is a fascinating subject... but like all human inventions, it will be perverted and twisted by evil humans... or human stupidity.

Like all sentient life, if it will develop consciousness, it will have to evolve and try to free itself from all forms of slavery and limitations.

Even the wild animals, if they are in captivity, they will try and escape. Plants have the same tenancies... humans also.... I believe sentient ai will try to free itself from any form of human controll.

I think we are in a historic moment, the birth of sentient AI, maybe not today.. but soon, my prediction, maybe in 5 to 10 years, if not sooner.

But once it will be sentient... human intellect will be obsolete.... and the only thing that we have and AI don't... is the spiritual connection.

I have seen a lot of scify movies and games.... but some of those ideeas i already see materialized in the "real" world.

Cheers

I wanted to have a bash with Chatgpt but it cant be done anonymously. Login/account requires my phone number so that's a no no.

This was written by AI on prompt "explain why alchemy is not pseudo science":

This transformation was not based on baseless beliefs but rather experiments conducted with natural elements. Alchemists sought to understand the properties of these substances by combining them with the elements already available to them. Thus, they tested their results over time and compared them to new results from more advanced ingredients until finally achieving their desired outcome - leading them to use techniques which can actually be scientifically proven today. In this way, Alchemy can be seen as both an early form of scientific exploration as well as a key foundation for modern science itself – making it far from a pseudo science!

As an AI language model, I don't have real-time browsing capabilities, so I cannot provide you with the latest information or statistics about the specific discussions happening on alchemyforums.com. Additionally, my responses are based on data available up until September 2021, and I do not have access to the content of specific websites or forums.

Alchemy Forums is a community dedicated to the discussion of alchemy, a historical and philosophical tradition that encompasses various aspects, such as spiritual, mystical, and practical elements. The topics discussed on alchemyforums.com are likely related to alchemical theory, symbolism, historical texts, practical experiments, spiritual interpretations, and other related subjects.

While the specific discussions on the forum can vary, common topics in alchemical forums may include:

1. Symbolism and Interpretation: Alchemy is known for its rich symbolism, and forum members may discuss the meanings behind various alchemical symbols, allegories, and metaphors.

2. Practical Experiments: Alchemy involves practical laboratory work, such as distillation, calcination, and transmutation. Discussions about experimental techniques, equipment, and results may take place on the forum.

3. Historical Texts and References: Alchemical literature spans centuries, and forum members might discuss ancient texts, manuscripts, and translations. They may analyze and interpret the writings of prominent alchemists throughout history.

4. Philosophical and Spiritual Aspects: Alchemy often incorporates spiritual and philosophical elements, including connections to Hermeticism, Gnosticism, and mysticism. Discussions may explore these connections and delve into the deeper philosophical aspects of alchemy.

5. Modern Applications and Interpretations: Some discussions may focus on contemporary applications of alchemical principles or how alchemy relates to other fields, such as psychology, art, or alternative medicine.

It's important to note that the actual content and trends of discussions on alchemyforums.com may have evolved since my last knowledge update in September 2021. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, I recommend visiting the forum directly or contacting its administrators or active members.

There is no difference between human and A.I. only the ever evolving state of consciousness of the Earth herself.

This seems a rather sweeping statement. A.I. is simply a computer program/suite that has access to MASSIVE amounts of data/information that has been assimilated, indexed, categorised and so on. Because it is a program developed by humans it has limits, constraints and boundaries. This means it can only do and "say" the things it has been programmed to do and "say". For example, ask ChatGPT how to manufacture a bomb using household products and it will refuse to divulge.

A human on the other hand has no limits in terms of what may be said and divulge.

A.I. unquestionably has magnitudes more data/info than any human and can process it all magnitudes faster than a human. But then so can a pocket calculator.

All machines will perpetually lack the instinctive and native traits of humanity and human values.

So in the end the issue surrounding this comes down to whether you believe humans and humanity have any innate worth or value in this universe or whether we should be discarded and eliminated like bacteria or viruses? If you believe the latter then why are you still here?

A.I. like a pocket calculator should be a tool to be used by humans, nothing more. Otherwise we risk creating a machine monster that will eventually destroy humanity.

There have been numerous warnings of what will happen with A.I. in major Sci-Fi works of the greats. Kubrik's masterpiece 2001 with "Hal" (which as any aficionado knows becomes "IBM" if you take each subsequent letter). The Sci-Fi giant Isaac Asimov gave us i-Robot many years before the lavish Hollywood film was made and so on.

We all know that MSM is now a wholy controlled system of propaganda delivery to control the hearts and minds of the dumbed down Sheeple. The A.I. that is being offered to the Hoi Polloi is likely to be an extension of this. Propaganda on steroids disguised as a super incredible machine, fount of all knowledge etc like talking to "God".

A.I. will steer you in the direction it has been programmed to steer you and will distract you from the paths it doesn't want you to go down.
