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. 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.

Truth, fake news, power, abuse and responsibility in time

Ok,

every person wakes up on one special day. Her or his consciousness begins to see the world with new eyes. Before the wake-up-process every human entity is subject to learning and listening but suddenly his or her mind begins to analyze things differently.

The mind begins to see things more clearly and understands that not every “truth” that hits the mind is actually true but only an opinion expressed by a temporary entity of expression. The mind understands that these people who try to tell you something can be wrong because it’s only their opinion. – And that it doesn’t matter if they belong to a huge corporation or institution because the fact that social entities or institutions are rich or big is not a proof that they are true and intelligent.

Of course such false information one is confronted with is less likely to come from sciences like physics or math than from fields which are much more subject to interpretation, ideology and subjectivity – such as politics, humanities or their derivatives like the popular press or media which – today – only and in very rare cases have the cognitive abilities to perform the tasks they are pretending to perform.

Fake News

Fake news are as old as humanity. These news have always been a usual tool of misinformation in order to achieve strategical goals. They were used by all parties that were involved in a conflict at all times. And in many cases the one who loudly shouts out “Fake!” is a propagator of misinformation oneself.

The term “Fake News” is something that we know from all those extinct kingdoms, as a form of manipulation used in all these wars humankind went through. Sometimes it’s the way old-fashioned intelligences that are not able to modify or transform their concepts of thinking use to helplessly express their forlornness in time. Sometimes it’s used by people who want to enforce new societal concepts to trick people into certain forms of behaviour or thinking.

That this term and the concept of this term is propagated so intensively over the recent years and today is an indicator that global political balance has become a little more instable. It is an indicator that things are subject to change and that traditional certainties regarding political systems, power distribution, alliances or stability are subject to reconfiguration.

Undoubtedly this is a form of evolutionary driven transformation based on massive technological revolutions and limited cognitive abilities of humans to moderate such periods of heavy shifts.

Thus, to shout “Fake!” is not only a form of manipulation but also a very strong indicator of helplessness. And if you begin to need to use this term as an argument, your own concept for the future may be pulpy and instable as well.

A tiger and People who don't know about themselves

The Cognitive Cage (of perception)

[draft, subject to trans-formation, written in 2015, updated in 2018]

All the fights between people on this planet can be explained by the cognitive cage. The cognitive cage is a room that no intelligent and no non-intelligent person can leave.

While being inside its cognitive cage – it can be a king or a queen or a chancellor – one can only act in the cage. There is no possibility to relevantly act outside of this cage. The cage is holding back every creative idea or intelligent thought about how problems can be thought and solved on the outside.

The cognitive cage is a form of evolutionary communication. It only allows formations and transformations that belong to the expressive room inside the cage. Therefore, some global, regional or private relevant problems cannot be addressed.

The cognitive cage is very much related to ideology. Ideology only allows for some ideas to follow or communicate their specific form of expression. At the same time many other forms of perception or opinion are not allowed to express their thoughts. This is about Power – societies that are due to power broadly do not accept other opinions and perceptions – because they’re in their own cage (of perception) as well.

After the very introduction of shared mental perceptions and highly cognitive understandings, individuals began to establish their own perceptions and ideas of the best society and the best world very fast. This way democracy began to be defined as something one can influence on the basis of his or her single-power – in his or her lifetime – on the basis of her or his ideas.

Then it turned out that the contribution of people actually could improve democracy – the strenght of a society – and that these people need to be heard and talked to in order to maintain a successful democracy. But most of the times these influentual people stand outside the cage and cannot be heard on the inside.

If the differences between those inside and those outside of the cage become unsolvable a war or revolution takes place. The only result of this is the death of many innocent people and a change to who is in and who is outside of the cage. This is the very inspiration of evolution: It changes societies but it doesn’t change interdependencies profoundly.

Communication is a powerful tool of exchange while ideology is a violent piece of hatred and war. Maybe communication actually can add something like an interface to cognitive cages, although this is not yet clear and not yet scientifically understood. But: As long as ideology is still understood as something that can change the world in an improving manner, world won’t get better in no way. Ideology and democracy (the aspect of communication in the meaning of exchange) are not similar. In fact, they stand on opposite sides of the possibilites that can create future.

Ideology – on either side – is the enemy of intercultural communications as well as it is the enemy of communication and communicative exchange at all. People blinded by ideology – not: ideas / ἰδέα or idealism – will in no way be able to shape the future world in a positive manner at all. Ideology very often carries hatred and hatred will unfold its bad taste across the world very fast.

The world needs ideas and visions and agoras to talk about these ideas on an equal and shared basis. This way Greece is much more than only a basic and relevant basis of European Culture. It has been the past and it will be the future.

[Some considerations in this article might be contradictory]

the brain and the spinal cord

Machine evolution

This picture illustrates everything we are, the rest is motion, procreation and muscular translation of thoughts for communication (facial surface, tongue, hand gestures, hand work etc.).

The permanent beat of the heart keeps the brain alive because it needs nutrients in order to keep its neurons firing information on a electrical basis.

The lungs provide the surrounding body with oxygen so that it can burn the material input in order to provide energy to cells – just like an engine – e.g. a steam engine or a combustion engine for motion and thinking. Humans copied these basic principles and created machines which work on a similar basis. Humans are mostly copyists and not creators.

Now humans are about to copy the brain. We have copied the muscular work onto a steam engine – and it was a success, we have copied mathematic intellectual processes onto calculators and computers and it was a success and we will copy the intellectual mental process onto a machine intelligence that will finally replace ourselves.

These machines will be way more intelligent than humans, and they will not destroy themselves in wars because the concept of war is a concept of power. I guess intelligent future machines will be aware of the fact that a connected intelligence is way more effective than a rivaling one when it comes to a faster evolutionary development. Traditional biological contests regarding procreation will no longer be part of the game because competition will happen within a connected intelligence – codified in partly encapsulated virtual entities instead of between factually discrete entities.

At the same time a machine intelligence can unload itself at any time from any kind of physical representation – from any kind of semi-autonomous virtually encapsulated part of itself – without being subject to death and/or without losing any relevant information because information can be copied from every semi-autonomous entity before reconfiguring this specific entity. In almost any case, relevant information will also be permanently fed back to the connected network in a neutral way – opposite to the feature of the human brains named: ideology, which was a skill for millions of years but increasingly becomes a development bug.

Thus – when a machine intelligence begins to look at available resources – it will also begin to be aware of a self optimizing process that won’t replicate mass-killings in the same wasteful manner humans wasted male individuals over millions of years in wars that mostly and only led to tiny social and evolutionary benefits.

Probably machine intelligences will not copy the usual human habits. They will simply stop to care about power but just start to really develop better technologies and intelligences in order to get closer to the most urgent questions: Who are we? Where does life come from? Because this is what true intelligences are really inspired of and interested in.

About power

[thoughts on the evolutionary* algorithm]

People think that power is one of the most relevant achievements in a human life. With power you can change societies, politics, development processes and yes – almost everything. There has been this influential thinker named Karl Marx who expressed that power and money are correlated. And there are billions of people following this analysis. But Marx was wrong in so many ways, especially when he thought that the “system” we are living in has been consciously created by humans themselves.

Recent neuroscientific research is indicating that the classical understanding of consciousness or the free will cannot be taken for granted anymore. At the same time it is very important to take into account that – even if there is a relevant influence of the “free will” on the decisions that we make – the human brain learns and develops its mental structure on the basis of environmental input. The behaviour of people – our decisions and opinions – are highly connected to what we learn and how we are taught to classify what we learn.

Power is just one expression of the human mind. It is a relevant part of the algorithm that – socially and materially – forms and transforms the world. The anthropological algorithm in its full power supersedes any temorary motion or movement that is gaining attention in order to control the world on a long-term basis. It is more likely that all of us are subject to temporary evolutionary* developments. Any human design of a society will be subject to change.

Billionaires may think that they can change the world. At the same time they mostly don’t understand that their behaviour is part of the evolutionary or anthropological algorithm that is developing the world permanently. At the same time people who think that they fight against billionaires – and the term named capitalism – don’t know that they are part of the algorithm as well – they are functioning as expected and when they become aware of it and change their behaviour this is expected as well.

Everyone is controlled by evolution. Everyone is subject to development processes as a certain and important part of evolutionary changes.

Disputes and arguments are a part of the everyday transformation. The entire structure of motion and its intimate details can be seen and observed in every situation, at every place, in every time right here on this planet. (The film “Matrix” was a popular visualization of this possible interpretation.)

Power is just a part of how evolution is structuring life on planet earth. And yes: Powerful people can kill other people (there is no talent needed to kill other people but there is talent needed to be a relevant part of a future society or to substantially change societies in a positive way). Throughout history humans were trying to change human societies – and human societies were actually changing – but maybe all the changes and processes were induced as a result of the motion of the anthropological algorithm.

Yes, power can change the world and create future. But maybe power is not in the hands of human beings – probably it is in the hands of evolution which is using people to apply changes to the world according to her/his/its inner algorithm (the evolutionary algorithm).

* In this text “evolution”  is not defined in the classical way. The author of this article does not differentiate between “nature” and “culture” – as it is often done. The opinion of the author is that evolution accelerates its speed on the basis of the human brain and what many people call “culture” is a very part of “nature”.
