It is nearly impossible to traverse web news or popular media today without being assaulted by vast amounts of propaganda on artificial intelligence (AI). It is perhaps the fad to end all fads as it supposedly encompasses almost every aspect of human existence, from economics and security to thought and art. According to mainstream claims, AI can do almost everything and do it better than any human being. And the things AI can’t do, it will be able to do eventually.
The globalist establishment has long held AI as a kind of holy grail in centralization technology. The United Nations has adopted numerous positions and even summits in the issue, including the “AI For Good” summit in Geneva. The U.N. insinuates that its primary interest in AI is in regulation or observation of how it is exploited, but the U.N. also has clear goals to use AI to its advantage. The use of AI as a means to monitor mass data to better institute “sustainable development” is written clearly in the U.N.’s agenda.
The IMF is in on the AI trend, holding global discussions on the uses of AI in economics as well as the effects of algorithms on economic analysis.
The main source for the development of AI has long been DARPA. The military and globalist think tank dumps billions of dollars into the technology, making AI the underlying focus of most of DARPA’s work. AI is not only on the globalist’s radar; they are essentially spearheading the creation and promotion of it.
In most white papers written by globalist institutions on AI, the thrust centers on mass data collection and surveillance. The elites are careful to always assert that their interests rest on the public good. This is why the U.N. and other globalist agencies argue that they should be the leaders in oversight of mass data collection. That is to say, they want us to believe that they are objective and trustworthy enough to manage rules for data surveillance, or, to manage the data itself.The globalist desire for the technology is not as simple as some might assume, however. They have strategic reasons, but also religious reasons for placing AI on an ideological pedestal. But first I suppose we should tackle the obvious.
For the safety of the public, the globalists want centralized management of all data collection, ostensibly to save us from those evil corporations and their invasions of data privacy. Of course, most of those corporations are also run by globalists that fill the guest books of events like the World Economic Forum to discuss the advancements and advantages of AI. The WEF has made it a mandate that AI be promoted widely and that the business world and the general public be convinced of AI’s advantages. Bias against AI must be prevented…
So, what we have is yet another false paradigm in which both globalist corporations and globalist institutions develop AI as well as pro-AI sentiment while globalists institutions argue that AI is ultimately too dangerous to be left in corporate hands and must be regulated by the establishment.
The public, with its innate distrust of corporate moral compass, is supposed to be convinced to support U.N. regulatory reforms as a counterbalance. But in reality, corporate powers have no intention of fighting against U.N. control, they will ultimately welcome it. This was the goal all along.
The actual effectiveness of AI is questionable. AI is primarily about “learning algorithms,” or machines that are programmed to learn from experience. The problem is that a learning algorithm is only as effective as the human beings that program it in the first place. That is to say, learning is not always a cause and effect process. Sometimes, learning is spontaneous epiphany. Learning is creative. And in some cases, learning is inborn.
When a machine is pitted against a human in a system built on very simple and concrete rules, machines tend to prevail. A chess game, for example, is designed around hard rules that never change. A pawn is always a pawn and always moves like a pawn; a knight always moves like a knight. While there can be moments of creativity in chess (which is why humans to this day are still on occasion able to beat computers at the game), the existence of the rules makes AI seem smarter than it is.
Human systems and natural systems are far more complicated than chess, and the rules tend to change, sometimes without warning. As quantum physics often discovers, the only thing that is predictable when observing the universe is that all things are unpredictable. How well would an algorithm do in a chess game where a pawn could suddenly evolve to move like a knight or a queen without any specific predictable patterns? Not very well I suspect.
And this is where we get into the crux of how the image of AI is being inflated into a kind of half-assed electronic god; a false prophet.
AI is being inserted not only into chess, but into everything. Mass surveillance is impossible to monitor by people. The amount of sheer data is overwhelming. So, the core purpose of AI for the globalists becomes clear — AI is meant to streamline mass surveillance and automate it. AI is meant to scour social media or electronic mail for “keywords” to identify potential miscreant and opposition. It is also meant to monitor public sentiment toward specific issues or governments. The goal is to gauge and eventually “predict” public behavior.
This becomes more difficult when we start talking about individuals. While groups are more easily observed and mapped in their behavior, individuals can be abrupt, volatile and unpredictable. AI mapping of personal habits is also prominent today. It is more visible in the corporate world where marketing is tailored to individual consumer patterns and interests. That said, governments are also highly interested in tracking individual habits to the point of creating psychological profiles for every person on the planet if possible.
This all boils down to the idea that AI will one day be able to identify criminals before they ever commit an actual crime. In other words, AI is meant to become and “all seeing eye” that not only monitors our behavior, but also reads our minds as a force for a pre-crime identification.
The question is not whether AI can actually tell us who is a future criminal. AI is obviously incapable of accurately predicting a person’s behavior to such a degree. The question is, who is setting the standards that AI is looking for when identifying potential “criminals”? Who gets to set the rules of the chess game? If an algorithm is programmed by a globalist, then AI will be labeling anti-globalists as future or current criminals. AI does not truly think. AI does not enact the power of choice in its decisions. AI does as it is programmed to do.
The globalist obsession with AI goes beyond centralization and control of populations. As noted above, there is a religious factor.
In my recent article ‘Luciferianism: A Secular Look At A Destructive Belief System‘, I outlined the root philosophy behind the globalist cult. The primary tenet of luciferianism is the idea (or delusion) that certain special people have the ability to become “gods.” The consequence of this belief that I did not explore was how this drives globalists to pursue two particular outcomes.
First, in order to become a god, one would have to have total observational power. Meaning, you would have to be able to see all and know all. Such a goal is foolish, because observing everything does not necessarily mean a person knows everything. Total observation would require total objectivity. Bias blinds people to the truth right in front of their faces all the time, and globalists are some of the most biased and elitist people on the planet.
Complete objective observation is impossible, at least, for humans and the algorithms they program. From physics to psychology, the observer always affects the observed and vice versa. But I think the globalists don’t really care about this reality. It is enough for them to pretend they are gods through mass surveillance. They aren’t actually interested in attaining godlike enlightenment.
Second, to become a god, in a mythological sense or otherwise, one would be required to create intelligent life from nothing. I believe that in the minds of the luciferians the creation of AI is the creation of an intelligent life form, rather than software. That said, luciferians have a disturbed notion of what constitutes “intelligent life.”
As I examined in my article breaking down and debunking luciferian ideology, the existence of inherent archetypes forms the basis for the human ability to choose, or to be creative in their choices. The existence of inherent understanding of good and evil established the foundation of human conscience and moral compass — the “soul” if you will. Luciferians argue despite ample evidence that none of this actually exists. They argue that humans are blank slates — machines that are programmed by their environment.
So, it makes sense that they would consider something as simple and empty as AI to be life, as long as it is able to be programmed to act “autonomously” (which they seem to consider sentience). In fact, there is nothing intelligent about artificial intelligence when it comes to moral or creative actions.
I leave readers with this to consider; last year an AI program was given the task of creating its own works of art. The outcome was highly publicized some of the art was sold for over $400,000. I invite you to look at this artwork here if you have not seen it already.
From what I have seen, the common human reaction to this “art” is for people to recoil in horror. It seems like a strange parroting of human elements of arts, but with none of the soul. Intuitively, we understand that AI is not life; but for globalists it is the very definition of life, probably because the soullessness of the creation is reflective of the soullessness of the creators.
