We are giving our energy to our digital avatars. Is this a transfer (but also an expansion) of our life force? Two of us, or one, with wings? Journeys into other worlds? New ways to find and lose ourselves?

In the U.S. technology platforms control the data, in China the government does. Europe is thinking of pooling all data - a path to a data cooperative, away from companies and governments, to benefit people. Utopia or possible?

As social networks have become too crowded and manipulated we need editors we can trust to navigate them.

To create an AI which is conscious, the animat needs to allow elements of chance and surprise , in essence freedom and theoretically free will. Can this be achieved with conventional computers or only with quantum computing?

Our belief in free will and in consciousness (as in self awareness) is that what makes humans vs other species. Will AI experience those too ?

As shown by the Bible, Confucian thinking, evolution, and evidenced by our having children, we think of life and prospects of humanity in generational terms - always a parent and a child. Is AI our ultimate offspring? The advanced world is increasingly abdicating having children - are we giving up on the physical world, and will we live and aim to survive through our digital selves ? Or do we think that we can extend our physical lives to the point of not reproducing to perpetuate our specie ?

Data, technology, communications, sharing of information and capabilities helps us tame and survive the virus. More is better - but we lack trust.

It is good that in life the jokers of a deck of cards or the zero of a roulette wheel exist. Is that really the case at the universal level, and will it persist once we have artificial super-intelligence ?

What is the role of humans in a world of machines? Wisdom, judgment, emotions, imagination? Machines are actually openings paths were humans didn’t dare walk - look at AlphaGo. We can learn from one another.

Humans thought we were the chosen ones, then believed we could solve all. Now we realize there is much beyond us, with the potential that what we are enabling might surpass us. We need to reinvent our future or surrender to it, finding new explanations and meaning.

Do we need to give robots the idea of free will so that they feel alive and will strive to survive ?Will robots work for us or us, for themselves, or a mix, where we are interconnected and intertwined?

Own the robots as opposed to just tax the robots.

Are gene editing and artificial implants part of natural evolution for humans?

Is the future going to be artificial and algorithms-based or biological and natural ? The answer is probably that it needs to be a combination of both.

Humans adapt. In the digital world it seems easy to replicate human interactions, but we will miss the physical encounters and value them more. On the other hand our time in isolation gives us mental space, something lost in the frantic contemporary world.

As humans enhance themselves through technology with additional digital aides, what happens to the body ? What about the intelligence of the body, evolved over so long to become so sophisticated? One could argue that the body intelligence is as important as the brain intelligence. The human, after all, is biological. This includes the brain.

The digital networks are a new layer of connection and of our lives that, just like nature, are part and parcel of humans. They are now an additional dimension of our nature. Humans, nature and animals are one, so is our technology and our networks.

Humans have needed to cooperate to survive. Will AI?

As the human species evolves, grows in consciousness, including by adding AI and biogenetic inputs, it will comprehend better and mentally reach further into the whole universe.

Humans are a journey of Becoming: Becoming One with universe, merging into one consciousness ultimately. Could it be that we, humans, and our followers (AGI, cyborgs?) are its most advanced species?

Machines can pass the Turing test, but are they conscious? Are they just mechanically able or do they have a sense of self and ability to reason beyond the scope of the test?

We experience life linearly, in time and space. What if we access the quantum reality of many experiences simultaneously, across multiple planes of time and space - in essence our life all at once: scenes playing together ? Our past, present, future would all connect and make more sense.

Even if we speculate that all can be explained by science and algorithms, there may always be a space beyond, unexpected, allowing for metaphysical imagination. Something further, bigger.

AI may allow us to access a new dimension of consciousness and comprehension, beyond what we can explain or what we attribute to the divine. A new tool, a further capability, but mostly a different agent, with its own form of consciousness.

As a species, humans will be the only one which by adopting work as its principal occupation will be liberated by it. In ancient times we survived, we then created communities which needed workers, and now our machines will give us freedom and time to choose how to be, yet will we or are we to live inside our inventions?

Imagine a GPT-3 digital agent trained on all major human languages and cultures absorbing news from around the world on a continuous basis. Will the AI develop opinions and beyond, will it reveal a personality with feelings and emotions? What happens if you train two agents on the identical set of inputs - will they have the same opinions and disposition? What happens if you put them in touch with each other and have them communicate? What will their dialogue be? Will their interaction modify one another and will they develop opinions and feelings for each other? Conversely, what happens if you ask any of the agents the same questions, not having changed inputs or training? Do you get the same results?

AlphaGo illustrates human potential and also its limits. Developed by humans, it beat its creators at the game of Go. The program, enabled by us, exposed simultaneously the limits of our capabilities and the unlimited power of agency which we created. The A.I. is a vessel for humans, just like humans are a vessel for the universe. Extensions of one another, of capacities and consciousness. In combination with others, our possibilities are endless, as are those of any organism. Humans have limits, yet exceed them by acting and engaging in life. By being factors of change and creation, we expand our reach, augmenting who we are. The same is valid for all agents.
