RE: The Ghost in the Machine: The Prophecies of AI
Dude! That music! It’s like a composite of half the music I’ve ever enjoyed, a ton of different influences. I’m surprised I don’t remember it but then again I saw this film 20 years ago.
I like how you started this, I also find that most ideas aren’t so original that someone I know couldn’t have come up with it or I couldn’t have come up with it. There are patterns that anyone can observe, of course it’s impossible for us to observe all of them in one lifetime and our interpretations will depend on our experiences…
But still I feel philosophy as a subject tends to overcomplicate things either because the philosophers aren’t as good at writing as they are at thinking, because they want to impress people by making their ideas sound more complicated than they are…or maybe I’m just dumb and have a short attention span.
I don’t know much about the official definition of dualism and it’s tradition. I have a lot of experiences that make me lean towards non-duality, but for me that doesn’t imply anything atheistic, rather, if there is anything like a god, it is not separate from us. More specifically, nothing really exists except consciousness, and consciousness got so bored it imagined everything else into existence for fun. Something like that.
Btw What other anime do you like? I am wuite sure our taste overlap st least 50%
