"It is clear that some kind of artificial intelligence [corporatocracy cabal] is driving the synthetic agenda. We are up against some kind of dark force that has hacked life itself. This primal virus has many of the characteristics we have historically attributed to artificial intelligence: soulless, dull, hive-mind mentality, without free will, unable to feel, only able to give answers (unable to ask questions), and without creative power (unable to create without first being programmed or told how to create). It’s a parasite. It has latched onto an existing reality, “hacked” it by taking over the program in some way, and is now busy creating its own modified version of reality (a fake and pale imitation) – a bastardized, poisonous and synthetic reality which is threatening to destroy the original host. It is, indeed, the System. It is the Matrix."

Technology Run Amok
The issue of advancing AI is about how far technocrats will use AI systems in ways which will distort reality, to achieve their own agendas.
Due to the science being not known to the general public, they will not be aware when they are being taken in by misleading information. The so called intelligence-algorithms can only be set up by programmers, so is limited to their desired outcomes, and any prejudices they may have. Only huge corporations can afford the early AI outlays, so the early set ups will be models for copy. Its highly likely that a 'one size fits all' will be adopted, for different purposes.
We already have propaganda by news organisations: the next step is control and deliberate illusion by the technocracies. Personal information via mobile phones owned by everyone, could even be used to create a social credit score system as in China. In this way, AI could control our freedoms. If we used Chinese AI, it would have Chinese philosophy built into it.
Some articles below will show how the danger of AI is its potential to distort knowledge.
Why Did I Tie My Shoe? - By Carey G Butler
More of the #AI ( #FakeIntelligence ) take on what they think is smart! They cannot even tell us what a mind is, not to mention trying to create one. An example follows which will drive this home to you in an easy way. I will show you how we think in ways that would drive a synthetic intelligence into 'tilt' without any hope of righting itself.
First I'd like to make some aspects of mind clear:
There are many lines of competence: Competence manifests itself in many, many ways. Here are a few LINES of development.
1) Empathic competence
2) Facial expression interpretation
3) Gesture proficiency
4) Tonal acuity
5) Focus capability
6) Situational awareness
7) Physical competence
8) Cognitive ability
9) Imagination capability
... (many, many more)
Here are a few stages of development.
1) I have no focus to view my world
2) I identify with myself
3) I identify with my gender or not
4) I identify with my family (or in primitive families I don't)
5) I identify with my town/city
6) I identify with my team or group
7) I identify with my chosen role
8) I identify with others who share my interests
All of these aspects of mind and much more determine how my mind works. These are perspectives that are not reducible to algorithms and values. They are fundamental parts of the framing of what we call mind.
Now to the example I promised you. This will make any #ArtificalIntelligence literally crap its pants:
Say we are talking on the phone and you begin to relate how someone else feels about some topic. You mention many people and their relationships to each other. I then pose the question, after getting to know the key players and their relationships to each other: "Tell me what Ann's mother thinks of her son Jim's ideas on philosophy and how it influences his relationship with Corinna (his girlfriend)?"
There will never be a machine that can handle this kind of indirection. It can only fashion these kinds of questions through insight; and insight is a quality only humans possess. We can do this easily, but a machine will never be able to. We may have machines which can tie our shoes, but they will never tell us why we do so, unless being told first.
AI Does Art!
2015 saw the introduction of AI dreamers' 'DEEP DREAM' graphics algorithms which distort scenes and images by inserting bat crazy creatures into warped shapes as computer algorithms have been taught to 'find' certain images - in this case dogs.
All are disturbing as they bear no relation to the world as we know it: nothing clever at all, just algorithms distorting lines, shapes and colours into monster images. Ai has no concept of seeing things through human eyes as they exist. (Just like PCR tests, they 'find' what they are looking for!) They are not attractive within our aesthetic frameworks, are repetitiously coloured and give no sense of place or emotion; in fact totally alien!

The Internet of things
Plan to interconnect all things, not only objects, but 'Internet of Bodies' too. Just as everything is stock checked in a supermarket, so will every item on Earth by monitored, by such AI computers as SALUS. (which in 2021 produced some unnerving figures about the vaccine harms) [add post]
