Artificial Intelligence vs the Laws of Nature

AI vs laws of nature — Full video

Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence vs the Laws of Nature: Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence is some­thing we use in order to “hack” our lim­its. Where­as, our brain, which is lim­it­ed, rep­re­sents nat­ur­al laws. And we can cur­rent­ly sur­pass that lim­i­ta­tion up to an extent with the help of a computer.

But it’s not going to remain like this for­ev­er. Will AI ever get so advanced to be able to act out­side of the laws of nature? What do you think?

This is a very inter­est­ing top­ic, and I am inter­est­ed in hear­ing more about your views on this sub­ject. Com­ment down below.

Okay, now these are the laws of nature we are talk­ing about:

The abil­i­ty to defeat gravity,

The abil­i­ty to defeat the speed of light,

Also, the abil­i­ty to defeat time itself,

The abil­i­ty to defeat aging, and

Uncov­er­ing sixth sense, and beyond.

The ability to defeat gravity

But how? It’s a nat­ur­al force that per­haps nobody can ful­ly con­trol. I sup­pose the most rea­son­able way would be to mas­ter anti­grav­i­ty. No, they are not going to live inside a machine. Rather, the body of that AI will be built in such a way that it can float in the air for a much much longer peri­od of time than a human being.

But over­com­ing the grav­i­ta­tion­al effects is like a “hack” for the laws of the nature, a way to get beyond our lim­i­ta­tions and reach high­er poten­tials. It means that in some cas­es, a human being can go beyond their nat­ur­al phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions and become some­thing that goes beyond what the nat­ur­al laws of nature can do (by cheating).

For the pur­pose, humans need to become capa­ble of han­dling dark ener­gy and dark mat­ter to cre­ate anti­grav­i­ty. For exam­ple, the black holes don’t have grav­i­ty but are capa­ble of pro­duc­ing grav­i­ta­tion­al forces. This is why they can exist.

The ability to defeat the speed of light

Any­thing goes here except meet­ing its nat­ur­al speed lim­it, which is 299792 kilo­me­ters per sec­ond (186282.4 miles per sec­ond). Nobody can go faster than that and stay intact phys­i­cal­ly and unless it isn’t using our cur­rent laws of nature anymore.

Is that pos­si­ble? Well, no. But yes, if AI is going to exist just in our minds, the hybrid could pos­si­ble beat the light­speed, enabling the being to trav­el far and wide in the universe.

But one prob­lem would be that we prob­a­bly would­n’t still know whether the uni­verse itself exists out­side our mind or not. It’s but a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. So, I will cov­er this issue in the next arti­cle “Exis­tence of the uni­verse out­side my brain”.

Here, the point is about beat­ing the light­speed, which is a phys­i­cal phe­nom­e­non. The ground real­i­ty that we are famil­iar with is that we can hard­ly achieve even the near-light­speed only with the help of a nat­ur­al human’s men­to-phys­i­cal capa­bil­i­ties.

At this point, an arti­fi­cial-human intel­li­gence could break the laws of nature regard­ing the speed of light by trav­el­ing even faster than that.

The ability to defeat time itself

This is not just about the fact that you can con­trol time, it’s about the fact that you are nev­er going to be con­trolled by time again. Time is your new play­ground; you are the only one in con­trol of it. Imag­ine that! Although phys­i­cal time trav­el will nev­er become pos­si­ble in the far­thest future, AI could be able to see a ver­sion of the future based on tril­lions of his­tor­i­cal data and pat­tern analysis.

Defeat­ing a time will also mean that they are not going to age any­more. Of course, they will live many years, but they won’t die. Unless humans have cre­at­ed an AI with an expi­ra­tion date or they have pro­grammed it to have a fixed lifes­pan, it can con­tin­ue liv­ing for­ev­er. When I say for­ev­er, I mean even after the extinc­tion of our plan­et.

The ability to defeat aging

Well, the abil­i­ty to defeat aging comes as a birth right if you are an Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence. One of AI’s tasks will be to live as much as pos­si­ble. And they will also try to be the best ver­sion of them­selves for as long as possible.

But defeat­ing aging is not a joke. It’s a neces­si­ty. Aging is linked with many dis­eases, includ­ing can­cer. So it’s an impor­tant step towards a bet­ter future for any arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence to live as much as pos­si­ble with­out its func­tion­al­i­ty or body degrad­ing over time.

Quot­ing Bio­physi­cist Tuhin Bhowmick, Diego Arguedaz Ortiz, Beth Sagar Fen­ton and Hele­na Mer­ri­man wrote on BBC, “Let’s say you need a liv­er and you have CT scan or you have MRI which shows exact size and shape of your organ in the com­put­er”. Accord­ing to Bhowmick, you could feed that ‘mould’ to a 3D print­er and print an arti­fi­cial one in exact­ly the same size and shape.

Recent­ly, a 20-year-old woman born with a small, mis­shapen ear received a 3D print­ed ear implant made from her own cells—a first-of-its-kind pro­ce­dure health experts have called “a stun­ning advance in the field of tis­sue engineering.

Although defeat­ing age­ing prob­a­bly vio­lets the laws of nature, it will equal­ly enable the arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence to repair its body and pro­long its lifes­pan, long enough to achieve this purpose.

Uncovering sixth sense and beyond

There are things that our 5 human sens­es can­not per­ceive. I believe Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence is going to make it through them all. The AI will have the sixth sense and fur­ther. The sixth sense is some­thing we have no idea about yet.

So, we can­not say exact­ly what it is going to be. An AI could sim­ply have a greater per­cep­tion than us. Does it mean they will be able to see and hear things that we can’t? Can they become a super­hero that can fly, move objects and do some oth­er super human things? The answer is yes, but these things are too small when com­pared to what they can do.

Now that we have dis­cussed the laws of nature AI could defeat, let’s talk about how, when and if.

Firstly, how can we create such an AI?

Maybe by using real bio­log­i­cal brain and try to rebuild it dig­i­tal­ly so that we can have a robot or con­scious­ness that can replace the human brain com­plete­ly and give us a bet­ter intu­ition, abil­i­ty to learn, flaw­less­ness etc.

Or try­ing to build a new con­scious­ness, which can live even after the death of the brain it belongs to. And I mean long after. For exam­ple, an AI could live in your phone or any­thing else you fan­cy (if you still don’t fan­cy talk­ing with inan­i­mate objects).

One. Using a real bio­log­i­cal brain: Some peo­ple would argue that it’s not nec­es­sary to mim­ic a brain. For exam­ple, air­planes do not shake their wings. Maybe, the dif­fer­ence between a human brain and an AI’s brain is going to be just as much as birds and air­plane. Instead of com­bin­ing bil­lions of neu­rons and synaps­es that repli­cate the human neur­al mod­el, we could just have a dig­i­tal brain with advanced proces­sors that work dif­fer­ent­ly, in order to reach a greater and more effi­cient result.

The human brain is con­nect­ed to a body that allows it to inter­act with the world and to learn things through­out its life­time. By cre­at­ing an arti­fi­cial brain that can be con­nect­ed to a body, we can either have an AI brain that can move things and do its tasks like the human brain does or we could have con­scious­ness that know them­selves in their own dig­i­tal mind after death.

Two. Try­ing to build a new con­scious­ness: The sec­ond option, try­ing to build a new con­scious­ness is easy, to rule out. Con­scious­ness is some­thing that we can­not repli­cate by any means at all. We will prob­a­bly nev­er under­stand its con­cept com­plete­ly. But we do know that it’s not some­thing phys­i­cal at all, rather it’s a pure­ly unimag­in­able enti­ty. So, con­scious­ness is the one thing that the AI would be left alone with and it’s not going to need any­thing else.

Three. Cre­at­ing an AI by run­ning a brain sim­u­la­tion: I’m sure every­one knows what a com­put­er is. They are the crea­tures that can do every­thing that we have ever imag­ined, except think­ing and feel­ing things. In order to cre­ate an AI, we need to sim­u­late thoughts and feel­ings and then trans­fer them into the computer.

Although we can­not sim­u­late emo­tions as accu­rate­ly as pos­si­ble and cre­ate some­thing com­plete­ly in our like­ness, it’s going to be able to do most of the things we think human beings can do.

Four. Cre­at­ing a hybrid mix­ture of genet­ic codes: A blend of Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence and ani­mal DNA could be mixed as some­thing like a chem­i­cal reac­tion. I am not say­ing a chem­i­cal reac­tion, some­thing like that. For exam­ple, the reac­tion between ammo­ni­um chlo­ride and chlo­rine gas caus­es explosion.

To conclude,

When will we be able to cre­ate an Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence that can defeat nature? Well, that’s a very good ques­tion. We can­not deter­mine when we are going to achieve what. In my opin­ion, it’s going to be when we stop find­ing out new things about our uni­verse and start cre­at­ing them instead! In that future, sci­ence is going to be about cre­at­ing the new laws of nature.

We hear a lot about Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence, but rarely do we know exact­ly what it is. Today we have a good idea of what arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence is, so let’s start to learn it bet­ter, shall we?

As I have said ear­li­er, no one can over­rule the laws of nature. How­ev­er, there will always be new laws to emerge and cre­ate new things in our world. And one day they might over­come their own laws completely. 

Note: The human brain has been repli­cat­ed in com­put­er more than once and the result was not pleasant.
