Posthuman Desire (Part 1 of 2): Algorithms of Dissatisfaction by Anthony Miccoli

After reading the IEET article No Form, Feelings, Perceptions, Mental Formations, Consciousness:  A Buddhist Perspective on AI by Andrew Cvercko, I found myself coming back to a question that I’ve been thinking about on various levels for quite a while: What would an artificial intelligence want? From a Buddhist perspective, what characterizes sentience is suffering.

#7: No Form, Feelings, Perceptions, Mental Formations, Consciousness:  A Buddhist Perspective on AI by Andrew Cvercko

It seems as though every day we grow closer to creating fully conscious and emergent artificial intelligences. As I’ve written about before, this poses a problem for many religions, especially those that ascribe a special place for humanity and for human consciousness in the cosmos. Buddhism stands out as an exception. Buddhism may be the one system of religious thought that not only accepts but will actively embrace any AIs that we produce as a species.

The Politics of the Soul by Andrew Cvercko

Will robots have souls? Do animals? Do we? At first glance, this line of questioning may appear to be purely theoretical, having no bearing on life until it ends and the individual discovers for them self what it’s all about. However, looking at the history of our species, the doctrine of the soul has been used to subjugate, to elevate, to enslave, and to empower based on an individual’s possession of one or lack thereof.
