The be-ing, as it grows, realizes and embodies the genius of its self, its humanness, and in so doing opens up more horizons for realizing even more of its self.
There is no humanhood to speak of since it can be simulated. The technologists know; they orchestrate the simulacrums.
Humans are not machines; it is not by their utility that their humanness must be qualified but by the simple fact of their be-ing.
Machinespeak is a case of “a metaphor gone mad!” “From the proposition that humans are in some respects like a machine, we move to the proposition that humans are little else but machines and, finally, that human beings are machines. And then, inevitably to the proposition that machines are human beings. What is most significant about this line of thinking is the dangerous reductionism it represents.”
Levels of a human problem: technical, sociotechnical and socio / philosophical. This break down demarcates the extent to which we can employ machines in our striving for human and social completeness, and underlines the fact that we cannot delegate the human purpose – the striving for growth and fulfillment, love, happiness, self expression, wholeness/integration, play (work) and freedom – to machines.
In argument for a conception of human needs as a chain and not a hierarchy; every human need involves every other need and is in fact every need
Nature is the genius of itself
Subservience to AI means to be orchestrated; determined, regulated, controlled, and commanded, by things that have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so
Relational digital artifacts; pseudo-beings (AI, robots, avatars and personas), from a point of view that values the richness of human relationships, they don’t make sense at all.
The simulacrum is a social and technological feat. Its capacities for behavior modelling, modification and monitoring have appeared as ubiquitous necessities, which regrettably prime us to become the plaything of every hallucination, spontaneous or deliberate ideological illusion. Cambridge Analytica has shown that simulacrum can get us to do what is not in our best interest, without the use of force, in a predictable way.
