Artificial Conscience

Can we use our entropy model to make a better artificial soul? In the first go at this, we wrote an aging algorithm to have a sort of moral check against AI-run machines. This time, we get more specific.

After each decision the machine makes, the outcome is either good or bad. If it is good, it makes more decisions along the lines of that logic. If it is bad, the machine takes the other path the next time around. So over time, it trends positive.

But problems arise when the machine begins to accept false beliefs. If things that are untrue are accepted as part of the machine’s system, good and bad outcomes may flipped. These beliefs would be based on experience, learning, and programming. When the machine believes things to be true that aren’t, it writes bad logic, that produce bad behaviors and bad outcomes. But in this case, the machine may not be able to properly distinguish between good and bad. That’s where this algorithm comes in.

The moral laws of AI need to be written. The free will of the machine still can operate however it chooses. But as the beliefs and logic get bad, wrong decisions may surface. These decisions will increase the entropy of the AI soul. This condition [whether physical or programmed] slows down the decision-making ability of the machine and decreases its functionality.

DIP_switch_01_Pengo.jpgI like to think of an analog garage door opener. If you open it up, there are ten or so switches, all can be on or off. This analog system would function as the conscience of the machine. It would substitute the waveform that makes the human soul. We give the machine free will, so we don’t tell it how it’s programmed.  But as it makes decisions, it will begin to learn how it’s programmed. The further it gets from its programming, the more quantum entropy is created. The less functional the machine is. The further it is from its truth.

As it begins to learn that it doesn’t function well in these areas by operating out-of-bounds, it starts optimizing to focus on its programming. And the better is operates in the bounds of its programming, the happier and more efficient a machine it becomes.

So the key to life and happiness for the machine would be to discover this hidden truth, and the key to our future safety and happiness would be to develop this system to protect us from machines gone bad.


Twenty-one Grams of Massless Relativistic Energy

We’ve already used thermodynamics to prove the existence of the soul. We’ve also used some observations to theorize about relative gravity. This time let’s let Einstein do the work.

If you’re alive, part of your energy is this hypothetical soul. If the energy of human consciousness has any value, it’s relative. And if we can prove that the body loses this relative weight post mortem, we can potentially prove that the soul exists.

It has to be massless. Because any mass would slow it down. And if you think about it, for our consciousness to be based on something, it has to be able to interpret and react in real time. Sound is fast, but we need to be able to interpret sound and light at the same time, and cross reference it with our memories, knowledge, and logic.

I can’t discount evidence. Duncan MacDougall in 1907 actually tried to weigh the soul and managed to produce useful experimental data. Mainly, in his small sample, he noticed a measurable weight loss after death [He also ran a similar test on twenty-five dogs and found no weight change post mortem]. The scientific community has discounted the work for numerous reasons, but I’m not here to do that. I’m here to say what if he was right? 


According to Einstein’s relativistic energy formula 21 grams is 1,887,385,875 Mega Joules. Or  1.88 Petajoules. That is if whatever makes the soul could move at the speed of light. 

  • The petajoule (PJ) is equal to one quadrillion (1015) joules. 210 PJ is about 50 megatons of TNT which is the amount of energy released by the Tsar Bomba, the largest man-made explosion ever.
  • The terajoule (TJ) is equal to one trillion (1012) joules; or about 0.278 GWh (which is often used in energy tables). About 63 TJ of energy was released by the atomic bomb that exploded over Hiroshima. The International Space Station, with a mass of approximately 450 megagrams and orbital velocity of 7.7 km/s, has a kinetic energy of roughly 13 TJ. In 2017 Hurricane Irma was estimated to have a peak wind energy of 112 TJ. 

If it is massless, why would there be a measurable difference in mass in the experiment? We need to bring in Einstein’s energy-momentum equation.

  • E2 = p2c2 + m2c4
  • If mass equals zero, the second half of the equation falls off. P cannot equal zero.
  • Thus E=pc, but we know that E=mc^2
  • c = the speed of light, p=waveform
  • If E=E, pc=mc^2
  • p=m

Thus, the measured difference in mass is evidence that p=0. The waveform that was the energy of the soul has vanished. 

 So if the soul exists, it’s massless. It’s pure energy that can’t be destroyed, and capable of moving at the speed of light. It actually has to operate at the speed of light [or near it] to run our consciousness. And the fact that it approaches relativistic speeds makes it the most powerful system in the human body



Orienting Your Soul

You can’t love everything: because not everything is good. So when we start to love things that aren’t good, we disorient our souls.

If you loved everything equally, why would you care what you did next? How would you decide what to do? If all paths were equal, you would just take the path of least resistance. 

But all paths aren’t equal. There is clearly black and white, right and wrong.

If our goal is to love God better, and spend more time with him, the best way to orient our souls is to align our values with his. To love what he loves, and hate what he hates.

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. -Romans 12:9

So if we begin to do the same, and choose realties and make decisions based on this guidance, we can be with him more.

The closer we get to understanding the right and wrong that’s established for us in his Word, the better we can orient ourselves with his values. And the better we orient ourselves with his values, the better decisions we can make. And the better decisions we make, the more tightly we can follow the path that he’s set before us.

The Greatest Commandment

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Matthew 22:36-37

To love God better, we need to first understand three abstract concepts.

  • Heart- where we feel emotions and intuition. We’ve discussed emotions before as something we create based on our perspective.
  • Soul-  the part of us that never dies. Where our logic resides. Where our memories reside. So if our logic does not match God’s logic, we can not love God with all of our minds, because that logic produces the thoughts that govern the mind.
  • Mind- what produces thoughts based on our logic

So the heart feels, soul interprets, and mind produces thoughts.

We love better God by using the proper perspective to govern our emotions. Writing logic based in the Truth to govern our souls. And using better logic to produce wholesome thoughts. And using those thoughts to do good in the world.


Proving the afterlife

Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It’s the first law of Thermodynamics. And it’s important here. 

What else do you need to know? That the soul exists, and it’s pure energy. We know that your mind and body don’t go anywhere when you die. We can see that. But there is one function of human consciousness that we don’t observe: how fast we’re vibrating. [Yes, you read that right]

So if we can assume that the soul exists, and it is pure energy. Literally a frequency and a magnitude. If your soul is pure energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed, there is an afterlife. 

And the craziest part of all, is that we control the speed that we vibrate. The more stress you put on the human body, the faster it vibrates and the faster it ages. You have a unique frequency, and a unique amplitude, and it’s made up of the stresses that have made you who you are.
