An intelligent head and mind in a sculpture

Intelligent perception

1.

Every single human being is thrown back to his or her single existence at several moments in his or her lifetime. – It can be a simple minded existence that expresses a massive amount of power towards a cognitive mind that transposes the mind to a state in which it is only following his or her perceptive inputs. Inputs that are being transferred into her or his brain.

Simple ideas and concepts such as “You are here, you live here, you have to exist within this very context” can be understood as offensive communications by the intelligent mind. At the same time this input could be of a context that says: “You as a person have to hate this and that. And if you don’t hate this and that I won’t love you anymore.” The input variables are made of many forms, many ideas and many different concepts. Especially in political contexts, a simple minded yelling-behaviour is understood by the intelligent mind as what it is: a low animalistic behaviour automation that lacks every parameter of an intelligent entity.

All of these temporary and aggressive inputs are trying to form a very specific and certain mental state or condition of one’s mind. They are trying to conserve a temporary state of mind. A temporary state of power and authority. Almost every temporary concept of understanding is using similar methods. These methods are of anthropological nature.

Human beings can be influenced, transformed and reconfigured on the basis of their intrinsic perception if they are exposed to a powerful presentation of future. Unfortunately many ideas of the future are based on only insignificant data and social rituals that form a pseudo-reality. This is one reason for the existence of war and war-related-killings: Humans are cognitively blinded by ideologies. One just has to set up two different groups of people and let these two groups perceive certain data over a span of time and then these two groups are ready to kill and hate each other – in many cases: immediately. This is a method that has been used by almost every relevant power in history. The very funny thing about it is: Probably no powerful person in history has ever used this method consciously. Because even powerful people are subject to evolution and evolution is using us to perform its principles. – So, probably Darwin was even more right, than todays scientists think he was.

Just think about the idea of the wheel: And then understand, that we not only do not understand the phenomenon of the wheel but we also do not understand that many thousand years later we’re still using the wheel as the major idea for all of our transport systems. Well, even jet engines still incorporate this principle. And we simply take the idea of the wheel or circle for granted – without understanding why it is even here and why it is what it is and why it is permanently re-shaping our societies. We think a circle is a given principle. But why should a circle be a given principle?

Perception is transformed into cognition and some cognition can also be transformed into fear, the perception of helplessness and even into a state of societal and social invisibility. Many people in many societies suffer from invisibility. This is a result of evolutionary motion. It is not a result of so called inequality. There are underlying mechanisms in evolution that are not connected to power, education, health or wealth. Evolution is way more complex than many of those mostly simple minded parties or societal groups that develop their primitive cults all across societies are taking into account.

This invisibility has many names, such as depression, loneliness, isolated wealth, poverty, uninspiredness, low connectivity, ideology, hate, useless power and many more. In 2018 we are still using wrong methods to address these issues. Because low intelligence is still in charge all over the planet.

Only a permanently and beautifully intelligent and open mind can assure an independent progress – a progress that is not even touching the temporary low-intelligent nature of simple ideologies because it knows that these structures are already forgotten in the very moment they are being fabricated in. And that there are many methods that allow to societally take people’s thoughts into account without diving into low-intelligent chaos.

But is the existence of such an intelligent (human) entity even possible? The recent 8,000 years of highly developed and civilised human societies give a clear answer: No. Civilisations rise and fall and violence can obviously not be taken out of the equation. Especially, very progressive civilisations are subject to decay – as if a mysterious anthropological spell is hitting such societies when they reach a certain state of development.

One could assume that a few thousand years of progress do not really matter in an evolutionary context. This might be a reason for these destructive forces that reliably reshape civilisations and cultures from time to time in a devastating manner.  It seems that a perfectly working, peaceful and equal society is not an evolutionary goal. > Because such a society doesn’t “satisfy” the evolutionary algorithm which is always striving for change and for more after more.

This is a very sad but possible explanation for the terrible chaos that steadily attacks humanity on its way through time. It is not about an evolution that can think for itself like a unique entity. It is about an evolution (a mechanism) that is codified in every living creature on this planet, in every material and even within the physical principles that shape the universe. It is an evolution that we cannot escape because everything we do – as a matter of fact – is universal and is what we do in an evolutionary context.

A human and a human and a human is still a human

From within 2017 and 2018 and beyond

In 2017, 2018 and + the world is crazy again. There are so many transformations and shifts and so many proven and reliable conditions are subject to reconfiguration. This is a usual process and it happens at least every 3-5 decades. It is a process of accelerated speed and transitions.

Especially in politics so many people from all political orientations in so many countries are upset, in anger or even beginning to be violent – as if this is the end of the world and there will be no future.

In a way it is funny to observe and watch these developments because it is very clear that there will be a future and that there will be other political developments and that this is (probably) not the end.

Especially radical left-wing and radical right-wing movements behave and communicate as if the world is burning and as if the planet is about to explode. – Well, the planet is quite ok. The recent centuries brought basic riches to so many people all across the globe – regarding economics, health, communications and participation. But finally, there is still so much suffering.

Nevertheless, small steps are steadily taken and the world is becoming better and better bit by bit. It might not be a totally wrong bet to assume that today human rights are applied on a global scale like never ever before.

But still: Many people do not feel belonging – in some cases because of ineffective economical and societal structures and in many cases because of insufficient societal and political management processes.

Today, many governmental strategies are still based on ideological theories that do not relate to the real problems of the real people in real societies. So many people still think that the world is a doll house that can be transformed into a completely new state of being by only thinking of a new world or by only fighting for a new idea.

But yes, the world is old. And humanity is old. It doesn’t change because some radical minds want it to change. Change is a process of time, it is a self-proving process of reliablity and certainty. If one wants to make the world a better place it is probably better to listen to the people and their needs instead of trying to implement fantastical concepts about a potentially glamorous future that have almost no correlations with the real world and the real people.

There might be so much excitement about the future of societies and there is so much neediness regarding change at the moment but things will develop slowly and not every aspect that stands out and appears to be important today will be a part of the life of tomorrow.

Things will change on a steady basis and there are two different ways of fast pace: The one that succeeds and the one that gets lost. To capably deal with the actuality of societies is a great challenge already. Time shows that sudden artificial changes are destabilizing societies in many cases. This is why extremists of any couleur are taken out of the equation on a regular basis: They belong to the category of fast pace that gets lost.

For about 3 million years – since the invention of the acheulean hand axe – we haven’t changed very much. We still live on the same planet, we still use rocks, stones, ores, sand or (lately) rare-earth elements for our housings or technologies. We still reproduce biologically, we’re still having disputes about the most simple matters, we still kill each other in order to achieve something, we still do not know why we are here and alive, we still wander around in almost complete intellectual darkness.

So – what to say about 2017 and beyond? Maybe humanity will  take the next very big step soon – the first big step after the acheulean hand axe. Maybe humanity will develop a self-conscious machine intelligence. Well, this would definitely change things. This would be the first new development in 3 million years. Perhaps this was and is our purpose. Perhaps this was the reason why billions of people were born into this world, walked over this world, gave their energies into the process and were replaced on a consecutive basis:

To accumulate knowledge* and to finally create a new species that is able to go further than us – intellectually and on a long-term basis – without the huge amount of burned ressources that are typical for humans and their silly fights – when even the tiniest steps consume disproportionate amounts of ressources.

– – – – – – – – –

*
Well, maybe in 1848 Marx and Engels were right with their idea about the accumulation of money and ressources and their concept that one part of humanity stands against the other. But of course they were not factually right because even in 1848 there was sufficient scientific, social and anthropological data, that this is not the “final” or most important conflict and that the line of interhuman conflicts is shifting on a daily basis. There was an inappropriate and inhuman treatment of workers but this was a specific effect of this time that they effectively helped to lower, yes, but the mass murder that was following their radical ideas was more than just a “contrary” effect and its destructive ideology is hurting or even killing millions of people until today.

Almost the whole 20th century (communism, fascism, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao and other stuff like this) was an intellectual loss, except from the introduction and establishment of the binary concept of computation and some very inspired ideas from the 1900s to the 1920s.

It’s a pity that we who live in the early years of the 21st century still have to live in and to suffer from the shadows of already lost and disproved ideas of the mostly dark 20th century. It is even worse that these shadows still infect so many people all around the globe with their negative and destructive intellectual poorness.

All in all we’re standing at the threshold of a bright new century. And some of us already managed to step over this threshold. From this point of view it is a better idea to live in areas of the world where the new world is understood as a possibility, instead of living in parts of the world that still try to suck in the old and used air of yesterday. (Such as.., well, you know)

Non-organic intelligence follows organic intelligence

From the very beginning of the known universe up to today it was always a matter of fact that non-organic intelligence followed organic intelligence and organic intelligence followed non organic-intelligence.

Nodody knows why we speak of the Big Bang. Some of us refer to it on a sexual level but the original Big Bang is still a theory that tries to explain the birth of our universe.

We still try to understand how initial physical forces were able to form a solar system that allows us to build small units like probes that fly around in space in order to detect relevant information about the origin of our planet, ourselves and the basis of our own cognition.

At the same time we and “organic” beings like us began to hate individuals of our own kind on this very planet millions of years ago. Until today our limited intelligence is inspiring us to kill each other and this motion is still happening all across the planet. This motion just proves that our intelligence just belongs to a very simple form of possible intellectual identity which is still relevant in probably any society across the globe.

It might happen that the original non-organic motion that led to the development of organic motion – like in cells and molecules and organic social structures – will now begin to re-identify itself in a form of relevant cognitive and intelligent motion. And maybe the next step of intelligence and motion will be formed by non-organic entities that we – today in 2014, 2019 or 2044 – are referring to as “artificial intelligence” although this intelligence won’t be “artificial” at all.

Evolution is not stopping. And it cannot be replaced by the term “culture”. Evolution is stronger and it seems that in this universe it cannot die. Evolution not only consists of concepts like “the survival of the fittest”, it also consists of any atomic structure in the periodic table. It consists of the layout of our solar system and finally the whole universe. Evolution is the underlying process of everything.

So maybe through organic intelligence (us) evolution is shaping the very space of future intelligence that will build the infrastructure for the future of itself.

The anthropological algorithm

[thoughts on the anthropological algorithm]

When people meet each other and exchange information they always exchange ideas and thoughts about a possible future. Every moment in the life of a human being – of a conscious mind – is interfused with a wide variety of impressions that touch the mind on a sensorial basis.

The mind – or consciousness – is a result of its sensorial input and the “analysis” > the cognition and recognition of its input.

Two human beings are always subject to a different input or perception and thus they always treat matter differently and they also act differently when it comes to designs of social interaction.

In time (and space) social groups that consist of members that have similar perceptions and cognitions use to develop a pattern of social and societal integration. At the same time other groups establish their own social and communicative pattern because they think the world will be a better place if their idea will be applied to every society. This is called ideology. Evolution uses ideology to accelerate developments. Two or more opponents are build, established and societally formed in order to fight each other.

This process – as a part of the anthropological algorithm / the anthropointrinsic algorithm – is used globally. Terms such as nation, tradition, gender, technology, power or self-esteem help to establish the algorithm in an efficient manner.

We find and identify oursleves in contexts like communism versus capitalism, nation versus nation, religion versus religion, progression versus tradition, men versus women, mental work versus physical work, black versus white, continent x versus continent y and so forth.

These definitions are inspiring us, they support evolution because they drive us to develop better solutions. But at the same time they prevent that people can internalize the universal perspective: That every and any existing human being is a very part of the current state or condition of the planet.

If we would realise that we as humans can actually live together on a very peaceful and comfortable basis we wouldn’t be in the need to rush further even if we don’t really have to. In a more balanced cognitive world the term “competition” would become an indicator for a shared human development instead of an indicator that stands for crises and the lack of analytic knowledge.

The human mind has to create technology – independent from the type of society the carrier of this mind is living in. That’s why the competition between different designs of society is almost always a competition on the basis of just a few superficial differences. The social and structural organisation of those competing societies is always very similar because every society is built on an anthropological / anthropointrinsic basis: Language, housing, nutrition, families, a social structure – laws, the use of technology and so on. Even the biggest issues and figths between nations, religions or people cannot belie the fact that a human society is always an anthropological society – any- and everywhere on the planet.

Probably the most important question in the 21st century is: Can we (inter-) connect our creative minds globally in a way that: At first we establish very open and free – soft – intersubjective and also intercultural methods of communication that allow us to heal our conflicts on earth and then – at 2nd – start to explore the space around us. A crew in an explorative spaceship – an enterprise – will probably be more succesful if it has already gone through all the possible and potential mental challenges that might appear while travelling through space before boarding.

A robot hand - a human handTherefore: Yes, we need to reconfigure our (cultural) infrastructure globally and as fast as we can. And yes: We definitely need more inventions in infrastructure, health, communications, interculturality, primary social care and services, education, understanding and sustainable analysis.

We also need more research regarding the future human-machine-intercommunication: Very soon there will be 4 types of human intelligence on the planet:

  • The human intelligence as we know it
  • A so called “artificial” machine intelligence of algorithms, made of inanimate matter that will be able to perform basic and advanced tasks on an automated basis – an IF>THEN intelligence that probably will be the basis for the development of a real inanimate intelligence
  • A machine intelligence that will surpass human intelligence on every level (still called human because we are the carriers of it)
  • The human intelligence with biological and material enhancements to the human brain and to the human body

The interconnection and inter-cooperation of those slightly different evolutionary pathways will – indeed – be very interesting. We will experience groundbreaking new forms of communication, social organization, products and also a change in how people will recognize their perceptive input. At the same time a very important question will be asked: Is there an actual future for the humankind?

On human behaviour I

[edited]

Humans are simple. We are simple. In almost any situation in our lifes we just blindly follow one of the ideas that have been implemented into our minds. It doesn’t matter where on the planet we are. It just happens. We all follow idea, ἰδέα. If in Asia, in Australia, in Greenland or Mexico. Minds are related to what people see, think and develop and to what people hear, read or see on the basis of social communication.

To a high degree our behaviour is a result of cognitively preprocessed information (interpretation) that flows into our brains. If a brain learns that certain things are bad it learns that these things are bad and it will behave accordingly, it will shout out this very opinion about a certain matter and it will even fight for it.

Very often people fight against each other only because they have a different opinion. Only because the individual interpretation of a certain matter is different. People fight although there is no true reason for fights. Problems become unsolvable because of what we call ideologies, which just means: a different perception and interpretation of an issue.

Over time we began to understand that we don’t need to get stuck in simple patterns. We also learned that the very meanings of words, contexts and relations change over time. What “then” has been “true” doesn’t have to be “true” anymore. This helped us to understand that maybe also our temporary conflicts may not be as true as we think they are.

It is an inevitable statement to say: We actually are part of a real and ongoing development, although we don’t understand how it works. It seems to work with and through us and at the same time in spite of us.

[an important part of the old version of this text:]

What we actually see in the conflict between Israel and its neighbors are low-level difficulties which are based on supersimple opposite meanings regarding very basic abrahamitic thoughts. It is very interesting that so many intellectuals in Israel, in Palestine, in Syria, Iraq or Iran were, are and appear to be not courageous enough to solve these conflicts in order to develop their region on a peaceful, inspired, human and intercultural basis. Maybe this is also about thoughts. At least this is about intelligence.
