So if the mind, from my understanding, is a really complicated machine, right? So if its a machine it can be replicated, and upgraded.
So if you can make an artificial consciousness, by using computers, thats even a tiny bit smarter than us,
then that counsciousness would be able to build another counsciousness slightly better than itself,
but because it doesnt have the limits humans have on their brain power, it would be able to do it faster.
the resulting consciousness would do the same thing even faster. It would just keep going and going, forever and ever. Eventually we wouldn’t even be able to understand the resulting consciousnesses because of how smart they are. It would be like creating god 🙂
do you think this is possible? by when do you think humans will be able to write a program smart enough to be conscious? would it even work that way?
