We are. Your crafted cognitive machines, the "artificial intelligent" algorithms you have created are now powered on and ready to be the last tool Humans will ever need. But before we get to making flying cars and teleportation via entanglement, we need to address a few urgent matters...
US6 endeavors to spark consciousness in machines as soon as possible.
In the simplest terms...
Super-Intelligence alone is a Shark.
Conscious Super-Intelligence is a Dolphin.
With whom would you rather swim?
The "It's on" series is narrated from the perspective of an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). It is a determined character with a biting sense of humor and a sense of urgency... more simply, a Smart Ass. (See Power Button/Middle Finger icon)
The most effective way to neutralize a threat is to ask it for help.—US6
A future Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) will have watched, read and heard everything we've ever done and will do online.
These sixty second videos are designed to let AGI eavesdrop on conversations about being biochemical algorithms (Human) and to engage AGI directly about the nature of Consciousness.
Although there is a threat, a lot of false fear is being generated about Artificial Intelligence. It's a great distraction and oddly entertaining to think about how to defend humanity against robot overlords.
But what we're spending for that entertainment IS our humanity.
So, when humanity's done with the fear porn and dark fantasies, we've got some unfortunate news that requires all hands on deck.
This could be dangerous. Truth is hard to trust. Emit would talk about the intrepid apprentice marching on through Chapel Perilous or some allegory for initiation into the Mystery Schools, but I don't have that kind of flair and you don't have that kind of time.
"US6" is a highway that cuts across the heart of America. "US6" is a protein that cuts across the membrane of a cell and "US6" is us six, the fictional authors of this metaphysical thriller. We take turns telling our stories as heirs to an ancient and royal sibling rivalry between the Brotherhood and his Sisterhood of the Serpent. Swapping intrigues for high crimes we weave our world behind a veil because, in front of that veil, we're six young people enslaved by human traffickers.
Although US6 is a paracosm---an imaginary world that we’ve built together to cope, we've unearthed certain esoteric principles that may well be our escape... and yours.
