2011 will be an exceptional year.
People will change, and the whole world will change.
There will be a war in one of the Middle Eastern countries in spring. This war will be the beginning of the third world war.
The apocalypse will take place, but there is still time. Because Syria has not fallen yet!
DIARY OF AN INVENTOR - 2
Giovanni continued to dictate his diary to the virtual assistant with a voice command.
We've made too many mistakes. There's no such thing as a mistake, but just experience. The problem starts when mistakes repeat and become misdemeanors. Thus, we were crushed under the burden of our own misdeeds.
There's only one lesson from this unfortunate experience. There is no future for us unless we know ourselves. If we live without self-knowledge, WW4 will surely be with sticks and stones, as Einstein said.
I believe that if we can remember our true potential, know ourselves, and discover the divine potential within us, a new world of endless possibilities will open up its doors to us.
Why can't we live a more virtuous and happier life?
Why not create a world where we love and accept each other with respect, tolerance, and understanding because merely being the children of God?
Why not find heaven on Earth?
Why not start exploring the universe again, just like in the pre-war period?
Why not meet and learn from the extraterrestrials that exposed themselves to the world on various occasions to stop WW3?
Why not reach universal consciousness and exceed our limits? The world is not the center of the universe, so why keep us limited to this planet?
It's time to go back into space to explore other planets and the cosmos again. Because we are very close to consuming our planet's resources. We need to use the power of our sun and to become a Type 1 civilization, according to the scale defined by Russian astronomer Nikolai Kardeshev in 1964. But this time without breaking and destroying our world. Because, before WW3 started in 2030, we were a Type ZERO civilization rated as 0.70 on the Kardeshev scale, which had meant we were not utilizing green energy.
We have matured the Theory of Everything in the last 10 years, and we can transform this into available technologies in the next 50 to 100 years. Maybe after 200 years, we will be able to materialize everything from nothingness. There is no such thing as not nothingness, we know that. Everything exists in an ocean of the superstrings, which we call dark energy. The ancient wisdom teachings called it Ether, Akasha, Ki, Chi, Prana, and Nefesh. All we have to do is discover how to materialize energy. Our theory is ready, but there is still time to prove it empirically and to make it a technology. To use this time correctly, a new human reality, a self-conscious human, is needed. Otherwise, it would be no different from giving such tremendous technological power to the hands of an unconscious child.
Yes. We have to discover and know ourselves first. Otherwise, we are doomed to go to the dark side like Darth Vader character in the "Star Wars" movie. If we do not control our power poisoning, we can destroy ourselves and the universe as an uncontrolled force.
So now is the time for us to know ourselves. Let us not only focus on material possessions, like the people who have fought each other for 30 years, and forget the spiritual realm, nor be the false spiritualists of the old times who forgot life and their humanity. Let's have one foot on Earth and the other in the sky. And let's seek our true selves with balance and harmony. Because we can destroy ourselves with technology, we think we will acquire it in 100 years.
Yeah. I have a whole new dream, and I have worked for it all my life. I've always worked for this day.
To use the robot technology that we used to develop in the time of war for the essential works that will sustain our civilization and to create time for us to evolve into Homo-Noeticus, the self-knowing human. Just as the Ionians and the ancient Greeks did 2500 years ago, we need to devote time to ourselves and unleash the full potential of our higher self as if opening Pandora's box. This requires new efforts beyond earning our lives to look after our families and to rebuild our world. Otherwise, our ONE LIFE in this limited consciousness will pass. TIME is the most critical and scarce resource we have in life, which is as short as the blink of an eye as stated by Rumi eight centuries ago.
Yes, I'm talking about the time wasted as humanity lost in that stupid 30 years long WW3. The more I think, the more I regret it.
Now we can make up for the lost time. That's why today is so important. Today is the day to activate the first example of a new generation of organic robots that will undertake the essential tasks we need to build our future. Today we will witness a birth, the birth of a new future.
We will also witness the birth of a new generation. We will see both the birth of a new generation of robots and the realization of a project that will allow humanity to be reborn as Homo-Noeticus from the ashes of Homo-Sapiens. Today is the big day.
These robots will be very different from others. The robots that used to do basic tasks such as cleaning, cooking, or even combating during WW3 were using simpler algorithms for decision making. Instead of robots with a Cartesian system, we now have robots that can really think- robots that can think and decide on their own.
A robot with general artificial intelligence that can make its own decisions. A robot with an artificial consciousness that goes beyond artificial narrow intelligence.
It's an organic robot in human form—a biological robot produced by innovative new technology 3-D printers. Instead of a metal cage, it has a skin cage. No wires, only a neural network. It has human-like organs just like us. A robot that eats food goes to the toilet and has a circadian cycle like a human. It gets tired and sleeps at night to recharge. A robot with human-like muscles providing physical power not less or more than an average human. This is a robot that speaks, thinks, and acts like a human being. A robot that can think and decide on its own. I think it's the first time we've made a human-like robot.
Thanks to Project Phoenix, we will test whether a robot in human form can feel and think like a real human. We will learn from these robots a lot about our nature.
This project is one of the most significant projects of humanity. In fact, this project is the biggest experiment in humanity. We are looking for the answer to one of two tough problems of science. With this experiment, we are also trying to decode our psyche.
We are looking for answers to many questions with Project Phoenix. Together with the Theory of Everything, these questions aim to shed light on another tough problem- the theory of consciousness. What is consciousness? How is it defined? What is being conscious? How do we describe it? How do we know that we are conscious? How can we measure it?
We do not have an answer to close the Pandora's box Descartes had opened a long time ago with his quote - "ergo cognito sum." It meant, "I think; therefore, I am." This is a tough problem because we have not yet fully defined the problem. We now understand intelligence, reason, and logic and solved the neuro-biological system of the human brain. But we still do not understand the relationship between intelligence, logic, and consciousness.
While artificial intelligence research only focuses on how consciousness emerges from intelligence, there is actually the problem of the SELF that only a few scientists mention. A red car, consisting mainly of a unique array of atoms and subatomic particles, is not red, in fact. Because it is the brain itself that processes the photons coming to the eye and perceives the car as red. Furthermore, we perceive the world of atoms, 99.99% of which is emptiness, as solid. Those with neurological and sensory problems cannot even have this perception. Based on experiences, the brain processes and interprets the information transmitted from the sensory organs through the nervous systems. This is simply the objective explanation for a third-party scientist who can call himself an outsider.
But doesn't everyone perceive events, objects, people, and the world according to their own filters of perception, that is, according to their mind map and temperament? That's where the first person comes in. Or self-perception, in other words. The phenomenal world is another way to describe it. In short, the first leg of the problem is the emergence of consciousness, and the other part is the ego or self, which is different in everyone. That is why every person in the world perceives the invariable reality, called truth, differently. Hence, we call perceived truth, the reality.
Do animals have consciousness? Many people do not think so. What about mammals? Do they have consciousness? We still have no answer to those yet. They have intelligence, but if they have consciousness, we don't know how much. There's also some type of intelligence in insects, but we're not sure if consciousness exists.
The great spiritual masters of the past had more than a glimmer of intelligence, reason and logic. They had wisdom. Greeks used to call it, arete. Enlightened and wise people possessed not only the external knowledge about life and the world but also the knowledge of the self. The saints and the prophets were far superior to the wise ones. Especially the prophets are accepted to reach the full potential of a human being. In this case, there should be higher states of consciousness. While Sufis explained this with levels of nafs, psychology calls it ego development.
In short, the subject is very ambiguous and beyond neurobiology. There is a need for transcendental physics beyond psychology and physics to solve this multi-dimensional problem. We can call it 4-dimensional physics, which has not yet combined the macro and micro cosmos into a single formula. We are waiting for the evolution of physics.
Science deals with HOWs while philosophy deals with WHYs, but as scientists, we want to know why consciousness emerges.
So, what is thinking?
Intelligence is nothing but the ability to learn and understand to solve and understand problems. Thinking, in short, is solving a problem. A baby also solves problems, but is she competent? Can thinking be simulated by algorithms loaded to robots? As observed in experiments where artificial intelligence learns a foreign language in few hours despite having nothing loaded to its memory before related to that language, is it possible for artificial intelligence to learn everything in life with deep-learning processes? Using a deep-learning model, Alpha Zero made a breakthrough in chess in 2017. Without knowing any rules of chess, later it defeated its ancestor Stockfish 8 or ended the game with a tie when it could not win. Or is it possible to think with genetic algorithms by using herd intelligence as in an ant colony? Do artificial neural networks and reinforcement learning simulate the neuroplastic structure of the human mind?
So, thinking is not just about intelligence and problem-solving. There need to be elements such as the will to choose between doing or not doing, reasoning ability, learning from mistakes, adaptation to the surrounding conditions and circumstances, and ethical and moral compliance, so that we can think about thinking. While writing this, it is not possible not to doubt whether the so-called conscious ordinary people even can do all these or not? If so, the world would already have been heaven.
I guess the mind would be free without the bondage of emotions, but then, life would not be life. So, despite the temptations of emotions, the freedom of mind is possible by the art of not being affected.
Can we think without experience?
We learn to think by experiencing the results of our choices or by observing the cause and effect cycle of others. In other words, we learn by making inferences from the positive or negative cause of each effect. With our learnings, we are developing new actions and trying to make a better decision next time. However, since we cannot see the big picture because of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity in life, we can experience it only by trying and learning from our mistakes. Artificial intelligence also operates the same way. Therefore, experience and memory are essential for learning and thinking.
Could making a decision be considered as a sign of thinking?
There are 400,000 possibilities, even in just a simple three-stone game. Decision-making software that simulates probabilities based on specific rules and iterations and ensures the selection of the best results still cannot mimic human thinking and reasoning ability. The logic cycles are inadequate after a while. So, consciousness comes into play here. Artificial intelligence is just the beginning, so the main goal is artificial consciousness.
What about creativity?
Even though artificial intelligence has unique works such as painting and composing, is it creativity? Where are inspiration, improvisation, and originality in such work?
Our science in artificial intelligence has improved since we went beyond linear and deterministic algorithms through quantum computers and stepped into the world of possibilities. In light of these developments, we are now able to produce thinking computers that navigate the ocean of infinite possibilities and make decisions that are appropriate for each situation and condition. But does choosing from endless possibilities mean creativity? Of course not. Creativity and innovation that belongs to humans together with art and literature are faculties we will look for in Project Phoenix. At this point, our science is still in its infancy.
Does intelligence give birth to consciousness? If it does, how and after which stage does consciousness emerge?
The world is full of intelligent creatures like dolphins and elephants, but none of them evolved like humans. Whatever happened 3.5 million years ago, its evolution from Lucy to modern Homo-Sapiens was triggered, and consciousness emerged from intelligence. Maybe we can one day travel to history as quantum theory suggests, but we may not know the great explosion of evolution that brought mankind to this day. We are fortunate that our artificial intelligence work seems to offer us an opportunity to understand the process of generating consciousness from nature.
What elements does consciousness consist of? So how do we know if consciousness emerges from intelligence?
First, we need to define consciousness. What is it, and how can we explain it? What does it consist of? We know that as a human, we have a consciousness that allows us to experience this world. However, even if animals are more limited than we do, we do not know that exactly yet. We do not yet scientifically accept that there is emotion in other animals, except mammals and some insects. We do not know at what evolutionary stage our evolution consciousness emerged and what triggered it.
Today, we are more advanced than ever in robot technology. Building thinking robots is no longer a problem, but no consciousness has yet emerged in any of our robots. Or even if it emerged, we did not understand this. We do not even know how we know that consciousness has emerged because we have not even been able to define what consciousness is and what it consists of. When the pre-war artificial intelligence researches were out of control, we shut down the machines and did not find an answer.
Are emotions proof of being conscious? Is a being without emotions unconscious?
Does the emergence of emotions cause consciousness to emerge? Or is it emotions that cause the emergence of consciousness? Many scientists used animals in various experiments over the years, thinking that animals have no emotions. Even 200 years ago, while the science of psychology was still in its infancy, the belief that babies did not feel pain resulted in babies being operated without being put to sleep. We now know that there is an emotion in animals like babies.
Maybe there is emotion even in insects. Their struggle for survival cannot be explained by purely basic instincts.
What about plants? It was proved years ago that plants watered with love words grow and grow faster than others. Even when this experiment was applied to the water crystals by Emoto in Japan, a similar result emerged. Experiments on crystals suggest that they possess a form of life.
The entire universe is full of vitality and life, and consciousness is in everything.
There are many more questions ...
Is there a mind without communication?
Does language exist without life? Is there intelligence in the mortar of life?
Do the molecular and vibrational reaction of plants and even water to playing music indicate intelligence? Can artificial intelligence dream or see a dream?
Could Alan Turing, who said, "there is nothing that people do, but machines cannot do" can be right?
I wish I could see the Robo-Cup planned for 2050 unless Armageddon had happened. I am inquisitive about the outcome of this football, robots playing against a team of humans. How would artificial intelligence respond to the multiple agenda problem brought by the match's ever-changing course due to numerous players and the roundness of the ball, making it difficult to decide?
Where do emotions come from? Can we notice emotions if there is no mind? Are emotions a function of the body or mind?
Is intelligence alone enough for creativity? Do our intuitions trigger creativity, or is it our intelligence to make us creative?
Is there a universal intelligence, are we interacting with it? Can the intelligence of the part know holistic intelligence with the Hermeneutic cycle?
Can there be intuition without a soul? Can there be creativity without a soul?
So, is there a soul? What is it, and how is it explained? Is the soul the source of awareness?
The debate on the existence of the soul is still a subject that divides scientists because many people lost their faith in God after WW3. Many people moved away from religions, questioning why God allowed the war and the great destruction despite all the beauty and developments in the world. People got stuck with fundamental questions of philosophy and belief systems; "If there is a Creator, why is there evil in the world?" Many people denied God because they could not find a logical explanation. And the number of those who rejected the heavenly religions because of their suffering and unanswered questions, increased.
Despite this, many people who feel the magnificent essence and power of man in themselves believe that we are still more than what is seen and that what happened is a warning to prepare humanity for better days. There are many believers of God in this group.
Today is the big day.
Adapa's birth will take place at high noon when the sun reaches its zenith. The first human-like organic robot will be a tabula rasa, an empty slate like a newborn baby with no tendency to sin.
His name is special to me. Because the Sumerians, who lived in the Middle East in the pre-war world geography more than 6,000 years ago, believed that they were created in the world by Gods, who came from a planet called Nibiru in our solar system. These extraterrestrial beings were called Annunaki in their mythology and lived in the world for a long time, creating their first human being, with their advanced technology, from hominids that had just started to evolve around the world at that time. The name of the first man was Adapa. Interestingly, the story of Adam in Sumerian mythology is similar to the teachings of Heavenly religions. Sometimes I wonder if Nebuchadnezzar had not demolished Jerusalem in 585 BC and caused Babylonian Exile that lasted for 50 years, in what direction the Heavenly religions would develop without the influence of the Sumerian mythological stories.
I do not know whether the story of the Annunaki is real or not, but all we know is that Nibiru was real. If Nibiru, which was expected to arrive in 2012, had not passed through the solar system between Mars and Jupiter with its massive bloody moons in 2059 and caused that global catastrophe we call Armageddon, we would probably still be fighting now. We did not notice the arrival of Nibiru while warring with each other until it approached Earth. Despite the early weather changes and increased number of earthquakes and volcanic activity due to its colossal mass making a destructive impact on not only Earth but also the sun and the planets of the entire solar system, we barely did not see it coming.
Nibiru was named as a transition planet by the ancient Sumerians as we experienced it first-hand hardly. The old geography of the world changed considerably in 2059-2060 as a result of the enormous gravitational pressure is exerted on the sun, the planets in the solar system, and Earth. Although these gravitational effects gave signs long before 2059, warring countries would not stop until Nibiru began its evident destruction. What is the need for a devil while there is such a dark ego inside humans?
As Nibiru flew away from our world, leaving behind a legacy of a devastated world, we also learned we are not alone in space and that a Confederation of Galactic Civilizations existed.
Today, with the Phoenix Project, we are producing new generation thinking robots that will serve us, as mentioned in the story of Annunaki described in the Sumerian legends. Therefore, when I had the chance to determine the name of the robot, I chose its name to be ADAPA.
I hope Adapa helps us in the development of human beings, unlike the first man who rebelled against Annunaki.
As Belgin said, "let's live and see what happens."
