Never said a robot was bad. Don't know if it would be conscious or not. Humans are simple machines, but the average AI is less complex than the mind of an insect. Humans don't make choices, they are caused by the forces of nature to do certain things. Higher complexity humans seem to not be bound by the laws of instinct, that is, they seem to want more than just sex work and doctrine, but they are still bound to the laws of physics and nature. Everything they do is caused, it is no choice of their own, if it seems random that is because of the I(Intelligience) routines. It is only psuedo random like a computer random number. Even if it was truly random, it would still not be a choice, but random events. Just like the post I made now. I did not choose to, the inertia of nature chose for me. Even a god cannot choose their own actions, the very concept of choice has no basis in reality.Arising_uk wrote:Consciousness itself is what without a thought?GreatandWiseTrixie wrote:Who's this you?
Consciousness itself. The dominant thought is someone who usually gets their way, performing action in the physical realm.
Who is this "someone"?And what is bad about robots? As you appear to agree with me that when a robot can choose not to do or do something then it'll be conscious.Robots can choose between three or more choices. Still makes them robots.
What is consciousness? An experience. One need not think to experience existence. Thoughts are just floaty clouds of data, nothing more.
