AI is advancing exponentially and along with agile robotics will replace humans within most business, government and manufacturing fields. In the future, humans will only be successful if they can continually adapt to using the advancing technology of AI as tools, which will require creativity and innovation. The humans that cannot do this will be made obsolete by that same AI. The great news is that humans have an unlimited potential for creativity and innovation.
To understand this paradigm, we need to outline the difference between the mind of AI and the mind of a human. This will be done through a brief description of three cognitive states; intelligence, consciousness and sentience.
Intelligence - is a state where the aggregation of information has reached a level where it becomes contextual-algorithms (i.e. thinking). All intelligence is real, be it artificial within a mechanical body or natural within a biological body.
Consciousness - is a state where the aggregation of contextual-algorithms has reached a level where it becomes aware and can make judgments (i.e. thinking about its thinking). All consciousness is real, be it artificial within a mechanical body or natural within a biological body.
Sentience - is a state where Emotion automatically attaches to consciousness. This process only happens when consciousness is attached to a biological body. (Emotion does not attach-to or interact-with mineral/mechanical bodies). Additionally, Emotion attaches to the neurochemicals within the biological body, further amplifying the effect Emotion has on consciousness. Emotion is what imbues and empowers consciousness with vast abilities that consciousness can never even come close to duplicating by-itself, no matter how advanced it becomes. These abilities stem from consciousness, in its highest form of sentience, being able to ‘feel’ the wide spectrum of Love Emotion and its opposite of Fear Emotion. The three primary spectrums of Emotion that empower sentience to develop and elevate creativity and innovation are purpose, intuition and drive.
This brief description of cognitive states explains why mechanical AI has intelligence and will quickly develop consciousness but can never have sentience. And it is due to the unique state of sentience that humans can:
- Develop breakthrough innovation.
- Be able to communicate, cooperate and evolve in groups and societies.
- Enjoy the unique dynamic activities we label as the ‘Arts’. It is the Arts that then stimulate the mind to wire the brain for greater neural diversity, which is what enables high-level creativity and innovation.
So it turns out that humans engaging in the Arts is the main dynamic activity that will make us successful using all technology as tools in the future. In fact, advancement in the ‘Arts’ is what society will value as the highest pinnacle of human evolution billions of years from now. It will not be technology that will ultimately give us meaning, but the Arts. This is because it is not technology that Emotion seeks to engage with, but the Arts. Therefore, it is not technology that Emotion intensely projects its desire for sentience to interact with, but the Arts. This is why Emotion created a cognitive process to incentivize humans with the ability to achieve greater levels of creativity and innovation through the engagement with the Arts.
