Artificial Intelligence

The beginning of recorded history, also by definition is the beginning of language.

At the same time (approximately 12,000 years ago) coincides the transition of homo sapien from living in tribal hunter-gatherers societies to that of agrarian-ownership societies.

Biochemically, the change to cooking is massive.  It is a process that has never been a part of biological evolution." (LINK)

Where did language come from?  It fits the definition of artificial. Humans are not born with language, it is learned.

As well as the sudden appearance of hybrid food crops, domestic animals, number systems and of course money (and banking), slavery and war.

All of these are artificial, not found in nature.

All of these seem to be of Artificial Intelligence.

And then, there is the question of the origin of the Fourth Way  (and/or other ancient wisdom).

Not even mentioning mysteries such as the pyramids and other ancient megaliths.

Computer Science Analogy

The mere existence and rapid evolution of computer science is a sign that the maturity of man is at hand.  The universe operates on principles analogous to a vast computer.  This could not be discovered until the computer and computer science developed to a certain level.  It is as if a highly advanced intelligence designed the universe to withhold its secrets from plain site until man developed to a certain degree.

Computer Science is the best analogy we can us for Man, God and the Universe.  Computer terminology supplies us with the best words and concepts to describe the nature, functioning and inter-relationship of Man, God and the Universe.

page-10-smComputer Science Analogy of Man, God and the Universe

I will begin with some basic definitions and concepts in computer science and show the analogous aspects of man, God and the universe for each term and/or concept.

Let us begin with a basic definition of computer.

Computer – A computer is a programmable machine designed to sequentially and automatically carry out a sequence of arithmetic or logical operations. The particular sequence of operations can be changed readily, allowing the computer to solve more than one kind of problem.

Conventionally a computer consists of some form of memory for data storage, at least one element that carries out arithmetic and logic operations, and a sequencing and control element that can change the order of operations based on the information that is stored. Peripheral devices allow information to be entered from an external source, and allow the results of operations to be sent out.

A computer's processing unit executes series of instructions that make it read, manipulate and then store data. Conditional instructions change the sequence of instructions as a function of the current state of the machine or its environment.” [1]

Let us break this definition down piece by piece. First off, notice that is says that the computer is a “programmable machine.”

page-11-smThe definition of a “machine” is:

“A machine manages power to accomplish a task, examples include, a mechanical system, a computing system, an electronic system, a molecular machine and a biological machine.” [2]

Therefore, we see that a “biological machine” or body is included in the definition of machine. The body manages power to accomplish a wide variety of tasks.

Programmable Machine

Returning to the definition of computer, it says a computer is a “programmable machine”. Programmable means something that can carry out the commands and instructions of a “program”.

A computer program (also software, or just a program) is a sequence of instructions written to perform a specified task with a computer.

The human body is also programmable and carries out the tasks as commanded by certain programs. The same way a computer program instructs a computer what task or activities to perform, humans have certain programs that tell our bodies what to do.

Operating System

Every computer has an operating system, which is a program or series of programs that give the computer its basic functionality.

“An operating system (OS) is software, consisting of programs and data, that runs on computers, manages computer hardware resources, and provides common services for execution of various application software.” [3]

Many of a computer’s programs run in the background yet control vital functions of the computer. Similarly, there are programs, which run in the background of the human body, yet control vital function of the body. For instance, there is a program (a set of instructions) which tells your heart to beat. Also another program tells your body to breath. These programs run in the background, you do not consciously tell your heart to beat or your body to breath. Thus it obvious that the body is not just like a computer, it is literally a computer. The body is a biological computer, or bio-computer. Just like every computer, the human bio computer has an operating system, which controls the main operations of the body.

When you purchase a computer from the store, it comes with the operating system pre-installed. The same way when a child is born, the child comes into the world with their operating system pre-installed. You do not teach the child to breath, nor do you teach their heart to beat. Our operating system is pre-installed by our DNA.

Individual custom software (programming)

page-13-smWhen you bring that computer home with the pre-installed operating system, that same operating system allows you to install new additional program/software that did not come with the computer.

With humans, after the child is born and brought home, the child has new programs installed by the parents and others close to the child.

Language is an example of a program.

We also install programs in the child such as fears, phobias, and behaviors. The most important and long-lasting programs are installed in children in their first 6 years of life. These programs include everything from language to social interactions.

Many things that we as adults suffer from often have their roots in programs that were installed in us during these first 6 years of life. Just like with computers, these programs tell us and our bodies have to act or react to others, and our environment.

These programs also dictate our abilities and limitations.

page-14-smIn computers, you can see these programs running in the background if you press simultaneously the keys: control, alt, and delete. This will open up the “task manager” which not only shows you what is running in the background, it also shows how much resources that program is consuming while it is running.

You can also stop the processes of certain programs.

For humans, through meditation, we can access our “task manager” and be able to see what programs are running in the background.

The definition of “computer” also said that:

“Conventionally a computer consists of some form of memory for data storage, at least one element that carries out arithmetic and logic operations, and a sequencing and control element that can change the order of operations based on the information that is stored.”

The operating system and additional programs installed in a computer are stored in a computer’s memory.

The memory of the human bio-computer consists of the DNA and the nervous system.

The nervous system handles both short term and long-term memory and ultimately stores long-term memory in DNA.

page-15-smThis long-term memory stored in DNA thus can actually be passed down to future generations. This is where ancestral/family memories and tendencies come from.

The definition of “computer” also said that:

“The particular sequence of operations (contained in a program) can be changed readily”

Aspects of the operating system and programs of computers can be modified or altered. The same way programs in computers can be installed, modified and uninstalled, programs in humans can also be installed, modified and uninstalled.

Every computer has an operating system, just as every human has one. Well guess what, so does the universe. Like man, the universe is also a “programmable machine”. Not only is man a computer (bio-computer), the universe is a computer as well. Let us now make the same comparison as we did for the human bio-computer.

Let us recall that the definition of computer said that the computer is a “programmable machine”. We also observed that:

“A machine manages power to accomplish a task, examples include, a mechanical system, a computing system, an electronic system, a molecular machine and a biological machine.”

page-17-smWell the universe is both a “mechanical”, “electronic system” or rather “electrical system”, and “biological”.

The “mechanical” aspects of the universe involving the rotation and revolution of planets and celestial bodies is plainly evident,

Less evident is the “electronic” and “electrical” aspects of the universe.

Space does not permit me to go into detail here regarding the new finding regarding the electro-magnetic foundation of the universe, but I plan to in future books and on the website (www.secretofsecrets.info).

Brain Systems

Excerpted from: Brain Systems

The brain of every successful organism models the environment of the organism with sufficient accuracy to provide the decisions necessary for its life.  This is true of every living organism from the most primitive protozoan to the most complex.  This is true of plants and it is true of microorganisms such as bacteria.  It prevails in brave Annelida (earthworm), but it doesn’t mean that every robin isn’t a surprise!

If this part of the human organism functioned perfectly, every human would be Conscious.  However, even the idea of perfection of this system in a human organism betrays its lack of proper functioning.  The idea of a system operating perfectly as it receives impressions from the world appears to us as an intellectual center performing without bias.  As usual, our idea of a mind which is not “playing tricks on us” seems to be defined by a purposeful and accurate thinking center.  Being rid of this is the first of many hurdles.

To those seeking Consciousness, a new and objective understanding of the centers and a functional and comprehensive model of the apparatus of thought must become fully integrated into the identity.  Both must become deeply held points of reference which are constantly used in self-observation.

brain sys 01Referring to Diagram 8  the general process of human thought can be described, in summary, by examining the components shown and the flow of information between them.

The sense organs (1) are generally those physical parts of the organism associated the registration of the exterior world.  Although an infant may need to mature for a few days before enjoying accurate vision, no learning is involved, hence, the sense organs are included with the Instinctive Center.

In fact, all the components of the brain as modeled in these symbols are associated with the Instinctive Center.  No child is ever taught to remember or recall, these functions are Instinctive Center operating routines which were in place at birth.  What has been added since birth is the intangible.  The contents of memory, its organization around “topics” and its incredible system of forward addressing (for good or not) are all edifices of the organism’s life.  They were built up through the sensations of a lifetime.  This may be what P. Ouspensky meant when he spoke of the intellectual part of the Instinctive Center.  “The intellectual part of the instinctive center is the mind behind all the work of the organism, a mind quite different from the intellectual mind.”10
