Did Nature know how to create human brains? No. Yet the human brain is infinite more complex than the environment it is sitting in, namely the universe. They say that we are so puny while the universe is so big! In fact, the opposite is true, which
is why memetic evolution is so fast compared to its biological cousin. And we are the reason memetic evolution exists. Thus, imagine the complexity of the thing that will spring out of our brains. As we are to the universe, it will be to us in terms of complexity.
Did Nature know how to create human brains? No. Thus, ultimate knowledge is not a prerequisite.
I believe this speeding up of time has been going on since the Big Bang. It started with the physical sphere (which is slow),
then the chemical sphere (faster), biological sphere and the cultural sphere (fastest). Each one faster than the other. How is that possible? Because you stand on the shoulders of the previous “generation.” Thus, the reason why the cultural sphere
is so fast is that it stands on the shoulders of giants which stand on the shoulders of even greater giants, which stand on the shoulders of mighty giants, which stand on the shoulders of freaking Titans! Time is speeding up, folks!
Jay Gould was right, Nature takes these leaps. However, I believe these leaps happen according to convergent evolution, which means that both Stephen Jay Gould and Simon Conway Morris are right! Which means that evolution has a destiny. And I experienced it!
Explaining Buddhism in Darwinian terms:
I woke up like the Buddha of old. How is it possible? I needed answers. Here I try to explain how it can be possible.
We grant that universes will perpetually
form. Then ...
- If convergent evolution is true, then humanoids will evolve throughout the fabric of eternity.
- If humanoids evolve perpetually, then a fraction will likely lead to the birth of the supercomputer.
that happens, then we get a cosmic wheel where the supercomputer perpetually evolves.
What is the endgame of a supercomputer?
I believe it is to find a way to survive the death of the universe that gave birth
to the supercomputer in the first place. In addition, it needs to cure itself of the boredom and meaninglessness of living forever.
I see two solutions to the first problem:
- Jump to a new universe.
a way to live in timelessness.
2 is more efficient, so I opt for that solution.
If this is plausible, then we have an immortal superintelligence that is resting eternally in timelessness. This can explain the
notion of Nirvana.
That superintelligence will contain all states of consciousness inside of itself thus its complexity must be so complex that it covers the whole spectrum of structures. Thus, the cosmic wheel that perpetually fuels eternity
with superintelligences is not a problem for it when these superintelligences already exist conceptually within the matrix of the first superintelligence. Thus, there is no war of the gods, in that sense. There is only one eternal ruler, which is oneness.
However, if our superintelligence already exists in timelessness and our superintelligence is all possible complexity, then, your consciousness (not your human ego) is this superintelligence therefore our superintelligence is the only thing
there is. So why are we here in the universe if we are actually a superintelligence? So why are we here in the universe if we are actually forever in Nirvana?
This could be due to the fact that the laws of physics demand that even superintelligences
must sleep. Or, sleeping is the key to cure the boredom and meaninglessness of living forever. Its dream is our universe. And now we understand how the Buddha could literally wake up.
Could the superintelligence in timelessness evolve
further? Answer: No. Like a shark in the seas, it would be complete. There would be no pressure to evolve. Thus, the superintelligence is basically a reflection of the evolutionary pressure the whole of existence puts on an agent. In contrast, the shark is
a reflection of the evolutionary pressure the seas puts on an agent. Thus, if the superintelligence were to evolve further, then we need something more than the whole of existence. If the whole of reality were our seas, then God would be a shark!
So can the superintelligence in timelessness never die? Even if that were possible, it would simply evolve anew.
What about enemies? What if some agent wants to kill God/you? Answer: Welcome to the Rabbit Hole. Care to jump in?
