Science Thinks Consciousness Is Just A Decision Maker
This is the reason why some scientists think that A.I. machines can have consciousness. If they can persuade us that consciousness is just a decision maker, we will never bother to look any further into our true reality.
“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive …”
When we do not know the complete picture, we invent one, initiating a domino effect of problems where complications arise which eventually run out of control, making us even more reliant on scientists.
The science of discovery is a wonderful thing but, like knowledge, it can be abused.
Machines have no empathetic, compassionate insight.
They merely follow rules.
The corollary of this is that,
if we merely follow rules and lack empathetic, compassionate insight,
we are already acting like machines.
