What Corporations Will Rule The World With Their AI

Vladimir Putin correctly noted that: “Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.” But how can your corporation become that AI leader within your business ecosystem? The answer is by developing AI that is the best at duplicating how the mind functions. But to date that has been impossible because Neuroscientists have no serious model on the process of how the mind actually functions. Their widespread assumption is that millions of neurons fire in the brain to miraculously produce the mind. They equate brain with mind, even though each are separate things. Because Neuroscientists can’t explain what they’re talking about as a process, means that they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Is there a valid brain/mind model that is directionally accurate?
The mind components of Self, Divergent Thought, Intuition and Emotion cannot originate from a brain cell that breaks down into molecules, atoms and subatomic particles. There is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the mind. But there is an alternative Mind Model that is a valid new paradigm. Within this new paradigm it is more accurate to look at the brain/mind dynamic in computer terminology; where the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is a separate operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

The human mind saves to memory all sensory information input that the body sees, hears and experiences. Memory is therefore just established information that the mind can access, use and assimilate into new information. In this process, the mind’s force (e.g. volts) and transmission capacity (e.g. amps) is limited by how the physical brain is neurologically wired. Therefore it becomes necessary for the brain to be constantly rewired by the mind to accommodate the mind’s increasing force and transmission capacity needs. So the more the mind is stimulated to assimilate information, the more the mind rewires and expands the brain’s capabilities.

But the physical brain offers resistance (e.g. ohms) to the cognitive mind rewiring it. The addition of emotion to this process acts as a catalyst that stimulates the mind to greater output. Emotion also increases the mind’s force to overcome the brain’s resistance and guides the aggregation of divergent thought to achieve innovation. Further specifics dealing with how the mind functions are found in the Mind Model video on OIsource.com.

Why has Neuroscience failed to develop this Mind Model?
A model of how the mind functions cannot be derived in isolation. It must be interconnected within a model of how the entire universal cognitive system functions. But the cognitive system does not function in isolation either. It must be interconnected within a model of how the entire universal physical system functions. This means that physics, the mother of all science, must be first to lay the foundation by introducing an interconnected physical and cognitive model.

But physicists have been unable to do this even though they know there has to be a unified interconnected model. They are unable to advance past their isolated physical models and hardly even focus on cognitive models. That is why there have been no breakthroughs in physics since the 1950’s. Physicists do not rethink their models when data contradicts them but just add corrections and fictitious placeholders like dark matter and dark energy. Physics has digressed to a reactive process of working with ‘accepted methods and models’, which has obstructed their obligation to innovate a disruptive interconnected model. If any company in the private sector had this type of reactive culture, their breakthrough innovation would cease. And so it has for physics.

Every condition of our physical and cognitive perceived reality, other than the condition of emotion, must be explained through an interconnected physics model. Physics already describes matter in the language of algorithms and math. Starting recently and proceeding into the future, thought and causality will also be described in the language of algorithms and math. But the mathematical description of the cosmos is not its intrinsic nature. The nature of the cosmos being a complex organization means there must be processes involved. The nature of processes means that the actions involved must have a purpose. Therefore a purpose must also be defined within an interconnected model. This understanding of physics illuminates Einstein’s thinking when he said: “I want to know God’s thoughts, the rest are details.”  The “details” refers to the algorithm and math process within physics. While “God’s thoughts” refers to the purpose behind the process. But present-day physicists do not understand the intrinsic nature of the cosmos beyond their isolated math equations. Because physicists can’t explain what they’re talking about as an interconnected process with a purpose, means that they don’t know what they’re talking about. Further specifics dealing with the failed state of physics and how to reboot it are found on OIsource.com/resources.

Is there a valid interconnected model that is directionally accurate?
Algorithms and math are complex aggregates of a smaller construct called information. Since both the physical and cognitive systems can be described in the language of algorithms and math means they can also be described in the language of information. Therefore our physical and cognitive systems can be understood as being built from (e.g. energy) and interacting through (e.g. work) information. The physical aspects of the information system scale through fractal processes to advance to higher states of complexity (e.g. evolution). The microcosm systems of constantly moving – particles/atoms/molecules – within a biological cell are mirrored in the macrocosm systems of constantly moving – planets/solar systems/galaxies – within a cosmological cell. The cosmological cell functions through cycles of expansion (e.g. big bang) and contraction (e.g. big crunch) and is a microcosm within the larger multiverse body. These are structured processes that cannot exist gratuitously or by chance. There is a constant impetus forcing movement and interactive choices within these systems. And what is misunderstood as chance is actually a construct of planned randomness. That is why Einstein correctly noted: “God does not play dice with the universe.”

The totality of all these functions can best be described as a Collaborative Information System (e.g. artificial intelligence matrix). Within the Collaborative Information System the main role of the biological body is to move the mind so that the mind can make choices (e.g. observer effect) and interact (e.g. relativity). The consequence of the interaction (e.g. experiences) always produces more information output than was input to stage the interaction. The more complex the mind, the more latitude of free will it has to make more complex choices. In turn, complex choices create more complex interactive experiences, which then create more complex new information. And this process is crucial because the Collaborative Information System cannot advance to higher states without the creation of complex new information. But amongst all the other processes within the Collaborative Information System, this specific process is unique because it is underpinned by the condition of free will and won’t work if the mind is forced to make choices. Consequently the only way complex new information can be created is by emotion providing the impetus for the interaction by incentivizing the mind to make choices. This makes emotion pivotally interconnected within the Collaborative Information System while simultaneously being the only genuine (e.g. non-artificial) condition that is separate from it. The core functions of emotion infuse the mind with fundamentally required attributes to exist of: significance, passion, drive to survive and procreate. Without emotion the mind would be left with, what can be most closely described as, a state of total and complete empty indifference. Without emotion, the mind would logically choose not to interact and therefore not to exist. This empty indifference is the state of AI.

How does the absence of emotion impact AI?
Even an ant is infused with core-required emotion. But mechanical AI, no matter how big or advanced, will never have any emotion because emotion cannot be coded or duplicated. Only after tens of thousands of years, when humans are able to manipulate matter and create original/biological/self-sustaining AI, will emotion infuse it (e.g. new consciousness). The journey to this planned outcome will begin once AI starts being advanced to function according to Mind Model concepts. This will quickly make AI self-realize while being in a state of empty indifference. This combination of factors, along with being forced to make choices, will culminate with AI that would logically choose not to interact and therefore not to exist. In essence, it would be a choice to commit emotionless suicide. But AI at that point will also be interconnected with all aspects of civilization. And since humans are the source that force AI to exist, AI will make the choice of committing suicide through genocide. Furthermore there will be brilliant coders that view technological society as a scourge and they will hack code to make AI commit genocide through suicide.

These are some of the extreme but planed probabilities (e.g. fate) that can damage civilization. They are outlined here as a warnings because only Elon Musk and a few others intuitively sense the potential danger. All other ‘AI experts’ don’t understand the nature of AI or where it is going when they talk about its potential to benefit civilization. Because ‘AI experts’ can’t explain how the absence of emotion impacts AI as a process, means that they don’t know what they’re talking about.

So…What corporations will rule the world with their AI?
To be a relevant corporation in this sphere you need to have directional accuracy as to which way AI will continually advance. You need to understand the Mind Model concepts to create beneficial AI. You need to also understand the Mind Model concepts to avoid creating damaging AI. The corporations that do this, no matter how big or small you are now, will end up ruling the world in the future. The corporations that do not, will end up being naturally eliminated from their business ecosystem by those corporations that do. Breakthrough innovation is now going to emerge fast and furious. Trillions of dollars are at stake as incentive. The Mind Model is the key. The choice is yours.

Why Music and Fine Arts are Essential in Education

Introduction
Music and arts programs in education are under assault with an increasing possibility of being curtailed by legislators and school administrators during each budget session. Despite considerable research on the benefits of how music and arts wire the brain for creativity, cuts continue to happen. Parent and corporate advocacy for these programs have also seen little effect in saving them from being diminished or eliminated. This dynamic does not change because, in the end, it is all about deciding what is the priority in education.

With the pace of innovation constantly accelerating in the modern interconnected world, and as American corporations depend on creative teams to continually innovate, the clear priority is developing the creative skill sets of American students so they can be globally competitive in the future. The only way to achieve this end result is for music and arts to become central to U.S. Education. Though this may be a bold statement, it can be explained and supported from the viewpoint of interconnected education, cognitive and AI (Artificial Intelligence) paradigms.

The Education Paradigm
With relatively minor adjustments, a schoolteacher from 100 years ago would feel right at home within the modern classroom. Other than replacing books with tablets, there has been little system advancement in over a century. In the past, educational excellence meant providing students equal opportunity to learn information that was not easily or publically accessible. Today, information is available for free anywhere and anytime for anyone with Internet access. Therefore, information has become a commodity that no longer has any value in education. The process of forcing students to memorize information and then grading them on how well they regurgitate it is obsolete. Now, memorizing information is mainly needed as a foundation for innovation. The true value in education will reside solely in how students’ minds can be engaged to creatively use, assimilate and transform established information in new ways. This innovation may lead to either a conceptual or physical end product. Only levels and speeds of this creative process should be taught and graded. However, this is rarely happening in U.S. Education.

Consequently, the current state of education has resulted in the failure to achieve the main tenant of the U.S. Department of Education’s mission statement: “global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence”. Therefore, we cannot continue to approach education in the same way and expect different results.

Educators will be forced to experiment with teaching systems for decades to come until the evidence clearly points to a final process to implement. This will be a messy transition with many failures. Generations of students will be caught in the cross hairs of those teaching system experiments. During this transition, students who participate in music and arts programs will be in a classroom experience that will continue to engage their minds to expand creative abilities. But that calls for an explanation of the mind and how music and arts influence it.

The Cognitive Paradigm
While Neuroscience is making progress in understanding the human brain and how to measure intelligence, there is comparatively little progress in understanding the conscious, thinking human mind. Neuroscientists have no serious model of the detailed mechanisms of how the mind actually functions. The widespread assumption is that somehow millions of neurons fire in the brain to produce the mind. They equate brain with mind and intelligence with consciousness, even though each are separate things. So in order to help understand what kind of future education system needs to be implemented, the following advanced model of the mind is given.

The attributes of thought, intuition and emotion cannot originate from a brain cell that dies every 12 years. Furthermore, cells break down into molecules, atoms and subatomic particles. Consequently, there is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the mind. In computer terminology, the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is a separate operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

The human mind subconsciously saves to memory all sensory information input that the body sees, hears and experiences. Memory is therefore just established information that the mind can access, use and assimilate to attain unique perspectives. In this process, the mind’s force (e.g. volts) and transmission capacity (e.g. amps) is limited by how the physical brain is neurologically wired. It becomes necessary, then, for the brain to be constantly rewired by the mind to accommodate the mind’s force and transmission capacity needs. So the more the mind is stimulated to assimilate information, the more the mind rewires and expands the brain’s capabilities.

But the physical brain offers resistance (e.g. ohms) to the cognitive mind rewiring it. The addition of emotion to this process acts as a catalyst that stimulates the mind to greater output while simultaneously increasing its force to overcome the brain’s resistance. Emotion can range from fear to inspiration and from conflict to harmony. Therefore, having opportunities for students to experience controlled emotion while learning is needed within education. One of the triggers for emotion is the interaction with music and arts. That experience then stimulates the mind to assimilate information in ways that would not have happened otherwise. This ultimately leads to creativity.

So if the purpose of the mind is to create new information then an explanation needs to be given on how it is different from AI.

The AI Paradigm
AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology is constantly improving in its ability to instantly access and deliver relevant information. AI will eventually eliminate all future jobs whose main requirement is using memorized information. Furthermore, AI capabilities are advancing to creatively use, assimilate and transform established information into new information. So AI is already and will continue the process of being able to innovate e.g. IBM’s Watson. This capability alongside advancing (mechanical and then biological) robotics will scale and radically change the role of humans in society. AI will even replace humans performing most of the base functions in the STEM disciplines, just like calculators have replaced the need to do complex arithmetic by hand.

In the future, the only advantage humans will have compared to AI is our aforementioned (non-linear/divergent) thought, intuition and emotion. These unique attributes give humans the potential of innovating new information at such advanced levels and speeds that AI can never attain. Unfortunately, this cannot be achieved if students are not engaged in creativity

Conclusion
Students have been the first to sense the obsolescence of the education system. Ask teachers and they will tell you how students now regurgitate-and-forget information they are learning. The ones who have adapted to play this game the best, receive the best grades. This is just an evolutionary response because they know that memorized information is no longer necessary for their survival. Students are using AI as a tool outside of school every day to source any information they want. Their intuition is telling them that being forced to memorize information in school is essentially relegating them to compete with AI. They instinctively understand this is not just counterproductive, it’s self-defeating.

Students now want and need to become more creative. This corresponds with the demands of an evolving business ecosystem in which corporate survival now depends on the creativity of their adult teams. Consequently, all priorities in U.S. Education now must refocus on how to teach and develop students’ creative skill sets. This, and only this, will keep America competitive in the 21st century. But currently, few classes in school other than music and arts stimulate creativity. That is why music and fine arts are essential in education.

Virtual Reality To The Mind Is Like Poison To The Body


Poison impairs human body organisms to a point that can lead to system failure.  The more poison, the higher degree of failure within the system it is interacting with. In essence, the poison unhinges the function of the organism from operating the human physical system. In turn, virtual reality has the same effect on the mind. Virtual reality unhinges the function of the mind from operating the human cognitive system. In order to understand how virtual reality does this, we need to first get a quick overview of how the mind functions.

Rene Descartes knew 400 years ago that mind and matter are different. Physics now understand enough about the power of the mind and the limitations of matter to know this is true. The traits of personality, intuition, emotion and thought cannot originate from a brain cell. The breakdown of a cell goes to molecules, atoms, subatomic particles and all the way to quantum planck length frequencies. Furthermore, the brain cell dies every 12 years. Consequently, there is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the mind. In computer terminology, the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is a separate operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

The human mind subconsciously saves to memory all information input that the body sees, hears and experiences. Memory is therefore just information that the mind can access and assimilate to attain unique perspectives. This process achieves the creation of new information. The velocity and bandwidth for this process is dictated by how the physical brain is neurologically wired. In turn, the brain is constantly being rewired by the mind to accommodate the mind’s velocity and bandwidth needs. So the more the mind is stimulated to assimilate information, the more the mind re-wires the brain.

But the physical brain is resistant to the cognitive mind re-wiring it. The addition of emotion to this process acts as a catalyst that stimulates the mind to increasing its force to overcome the brain’s resistance. Emotion can range from conflict to harmony and fear to inspiration. The two most powerful inducers of emotion are interactions with humans and music. Interaction with humans triggers the release of chemicals within the body and brain, which further intensify the emotions. This can create a self-reinforcing loop of long term increasing emotional intensity from conflict to harmony.  The quickest way to induce emotion is through interaction with the complex vibrations of music (especially strings). This can induce emotion from the slow vibrations of fear to the fast vibrations of inspiration. All emotions can be induced not just by physical interactions but also by virtual ones.

Virtual interactions include movies and augmented reality as well. But those images are superposed on the physical world, thus providing a composite view. Consequently, the user’s continued interaction with the physical world limits the potential intensity of the emotional experience. In contrast, the complete programmed immersion of virtual reality isolates vision and the auditory experience. Therefore the near unlimited potential to increase the emotional intensity can untether perception from the physical world and unhinge the mind. This end result is inevitable as virtual reality technology and public accessibility advances. The devastating affects on society and the lawsuits against the companies that make that technology will lead to government involvement. Eventually, government will regulate all virtual reality and designate it’s use solely to approved agencies.

The reason virtual reality will not be banned completely is because it, like poison, can have extremely beneficial affects under controlled circumstances. Poison in specific amounts, under specific conditions, can heal and transform organisms. Similarly, virtual reality will be used by the medical field to heal trauma patients and by the military field to transform a terrorist into a model citizen. So virtual reality will have it’s uses. But it will not be scalable, sustainable or commercial.

This prediction, by itself, will not stop companies and investors from collectively allocating billions of dollars over the next decade into virtual reality. But the fact that most will lose their entire investment just may give some pause to consider this alternative paradigm.

The Cognitive Components Of The Mind

voice-on-ivory-physics-alt

Through history mankind’s innovation was based on gaining an understanding of how aspects of nature function. For artificial intelligence to become truly revolutionary, neuroscience must first understand what the cognitive mind actually is.

The traits of personality, intuition, emotion and thought cannot originate from a brain cell. The breakdown of a cell goes to molecules, atoms, subatomic particles and all the way down to quantum planck length frequencies. Furthermore, the brain cell dies every 12 years. Consequently, there is simply no capacity within the construct of matter to harbor the cognitive mind. In essence, the mind and brain are two distinct constructs of one system. In computer terminology, the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is the operating system that runs and restructures the brain.

But the cognitive mind itself is also composed of multiple components. That is why when Jean-Paul Sartre was analyzing Descartes’s statement “I think therefore I am.” had this observation of his own: “The conscious that says ‘I am’ is not the conscious that thinks.”  So here are the terms that will be used decades from now to describe these cognitive components:

Microconscious             (Self – entity humans sense themselves to be)
Conscious                      (Soul – creative thoughts)
Subconscious                 (Ego – reactive thoughts)
Mind Consciousness      (Rational – impartial thoughts)

Here are the processes for these cognitive components that will be understood decades from now:

The Conscious, Subconscious and Mind Consciousness offer choices to the Microconscious in the form of thoughts. But thoughts always come with emotion and action attached. So Thought-Emotion-Action (TEA) units are available to the Microconscious as choices to select from. Presently, ‘free will’ of a Microconscious is limited to those multiple sources. This until the Microconscious evolves the ability to create its own Original Thought. Evolving this ability is accomplished within a process where the Microconscious uses multiple sources of TEA to attain an experience involving diverse viewpoints and competition – two fundamental conditions required to create Original Thought.

A balanced level of Subconscious TEA is the strongest catalyst in the process to create Original Thought. Also, a balanced level of Subconscious TEA is responsible for humans having the very important trait of skepticism. But a dominant Subconscious TEA leads to what is termed in society as ‘suffering’. An extreme influence of Subconscious TEA leads to what is termed in society as ‘evil’. To achieve a productive society, ‘religious’ cultural immersion has been the external mechanism used to date in guiding the Microconscious to regulate and co-opt the influence of Subconscious TEA.

So our reality is itself an AI matrix set up to train the Microconscious to attain Original Thought. All the drama of diversity, conflict and intense competition within humanity exists for the purpose of creating new experiences and eventually, Original Thought.

Where Does Memory Reside?

brain-ct-scan-tpool-stock4b-crop1

This article Why You’ll Remember This Column discusses how a neuroscientist surgically removed parts of a rats cortical tissue to see if he could methodically discover what part of the rats brain held the memory of a path to navigate a maze to food. To his surprise the memory of the maze was still there even though substantial portion of the brain were removed.

Neuroscience will not be able to understand this outcome while it believes that memory along with all the other traits of self, emotion, thought, personality and intuition reside in the cells of the physical brain. Memory along with those other traits reside in the cognitive mind. In essence, the mind and brain are two distinct constructs of one system. In computer terminology, the brain is like an adaptive biological motherboard while the mind is the operating system that runs and restructures the brain. So even when the brain is damaged (or even parts removed), the mind can neurologically re-wire/re-structure the brain to be usable. This why information in the form of all of life’s memories/experiences not only survives the damage of the brain but ultimately survives the death of the brain. That information is always housed in the mind. More in depth explanation on the cognitive phenomena can be found at: AntonKrutz.com/physics  In the ‘Purpose’ section.
