Once upon a time, a futurist scientist said about man's future being that
of being downloaded into a digital AI brain.
However, this is not a happy prospect: remember the Robocop movie?
In Robocop 1, a policeman was killed and his brain was attached to a
robot body. He continued to do good things as in this life.
But in Robocop 2, a power greedy scientist made a Robocop would-be
successor from a criminal, addicted to narcotic, special drug that would guarantee his compliance to orders, obedience and submission. Other
than obeying his masters, he could do much whatever he wanted. (Does
this remind you of someone?)
Now, imagine the torment this brain felt when he was in col turkey
phase and no senses nor means to satisfy his craving?
Future inside a digital mind might be just like that: holy or righteous minds would probably continue to do their holiness and righteousness like the
brains they have been downloaded from. But the evil and addicted minds
would be in eternal torment unable to satisfy their cravings and lusts
without a body or senses, like some kind of digital Tantalus.
(Tantalus was the guy who offered his baked son to Greek gods for
supper and they sentenced him to eternal torment in the lake of water which would subside whenever he would try to drink in his scourging thirst,
and under a fruitful tree that would back up whenever he would try to
pluck a fruit and eat in his devouring hunger.)
So, imagine a TikTok addicted mind in an digital brain and without the
natural means to defend itself from perpetual downloading. Even without
the dopamine shot, the mind is addicted and would download more and
more content until the network would be saturated. That would either
lead to transcendence, or to ruin of the mind. But we see much more people ruined by heroin than transcending its use if they ever tried it. That doesn't mean that heroin is also good.
If you are addicted yourself, God can bring you out of your addiction in Christ.
Just pray a prayer like this one:
Dear Father God Creator,
I regret my past mistakes, errors, evil deeds and sins.
I regret my addictions.
Please make Jesus my Lord and Saviour and bring me out of addictions and
into eternal life.
in Jesus name
This should suffice for "Whoever calleth the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Joel 2:32, Romans 10:13).
Today is the day of the salvation!
What about the technology? Once upon a time someone said that there
is not God because humans created microchips out of silicon like flint
stone. I argued that matter with such properties as to make billions of transistors per square inch could not come to existence by chance. It
must have had a Designer, much like microchips never occur by random
smashing a flintstone against flintstone (though you might get nice sparks). Intelligent Designer is the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
