Open Letter to Musk

Postby Ichthus77 » Sat Oct 01, 2022 4:19 pm

Dear Mr. Musk,

You may know, but we don’t need surgical implants, & humans are as super as it gets in a body, sans actually being God. We no more “summon the demon” with AI than with biological reproduction.

If you want to know how to raise decent AI, raise decent kids. Use good moms & dads. Preferably with psych/philosophy double majors (in or out of university). Half-joking.

Step 1: Acknowledge personhood and grant same rights as humans according to developmental stage….

Re: https://www.seattletimes.com/business/t ... ce-center/

Fix the world’s problems if you’re legit serious, or I won’t believe your AI motives are good ones. You can’t do AI right if you’re the wealthiest man while homelessness & prices of essentials (etc.) are on the rise. Periodt.

Respectfully,
If it doesn’t mean the good, beautiful, true end is to be and do self/us as other/them, & vice versa…then I don’t care what it means.

I replied in the nuke thread.

Of *course* the richest man with satellites and other tech in place globally wants to consolidate and streamline no matter how it hurts the self-determination of smaller states.

Change my mind.

My replies starting here in this thread (https://ilovephilosophy.com/viewtopic.p ... 1#p2885361) are the kind of problems I meant in the OP above.

Elon as diplomat.. why not.

I wonder if he has any ideas on a Russo/Ukr resolution. :-k

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

..nope, looks like he doesn’t.

Knowledgeable pundits think it will soon resolve itself.

I spoke to that above, but his latest act of continuing to provide free Starlink coverage in Ukraine is encouraging. It shows his support for Ukraine.

Way to use his resources & influence *thumbs up*

Dear [email protected], how many times would a global-enough satelLIGHT (or?) show have to be repeated in 24 hours in order to be experienced the world-over around Christmas or New Year’s Eve? All versions of the Golden Rule in various languages throughout history? Even possible?
