Why Truth isn't contingent on who discovers it.
|Today I feel like going down the "Truth" rabbit hole.
I discovered a long time ago that sometimes people I hate, are knowledgable about things that I don't realize or understand . Further, that often people I love, don't know "Shit!" From this I've concluded that listening only to my friends is not a good policy. The whole idea of, "Love me, Love my dog." simply doesn't pan out. This to me became a fundamental key to understanding what was going on in the world around me.
The source of truth is irrelevant. Truth happens independent of who discovers it. It isn't a thought process, but rather an outcome, that dawns when illuminated by cognitive awareness. Now, its a fact that some people are better at ferreting it out than others. For example consider Newton, suddenly realizing the laws of gravity, while sitting in an orchard. He was smart enough to see that something profound happened when a ripe fruit fell to the ground. Most would have concluded that napping under a tree, risks having an apple hit you in the head! Nothing profound there.
The point is, wether you love or hate Newton, there's no arguing with the truth of what he discovered. When President Trump invited the Soviets to provide Hillary's emails the data they contained was what it was. The source of the emails was a footnote. Who found them first might be noteworthy but the black and white of the contents didn't change. The process was ready to move on. When Watson and Crick uncovered the double helix, academics realized the two had stumbled upon a fundamental truth of nature. Many other scientists searching, for the same truth, were bitter and angry and felt the two had gone beyond the accepted protocols in making their discovery.
Now try and follow along... (I couldn't resist that.)
I'll begin with the premise that life was created. It's quite a stretch to believe in spontaneous generation. There are too many things that must happen concurrently for even the simplest one celled organism to birth itself into existence.
So, something or someone we call GOD drew up the first blueprints and sent them over to product development. GOD must have majored in chemistry, minored in biology and possessed a deep and abiding interest in what I'll call the "Protoplasmic Sciences. (PS)" Today's science can only marvel and barely appreciate the complexity of life and all its varieties and forms.
One of these is Homo Sapiens (Humans) and while we know something about this creature from the fossil record, we can't begin to match GOD's skill in the field of PS and must be content with a growing expertise in the Electro-Mechanical Sciences (EMS).
Humans are reaching a stage in their development where they are starting to muck around with Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (RAI). I see the distinction between the two as dealing with centralization and mobility more than anything else. In our creative endeavors we are not even attempting to move forward, to any great extent, in the PS. The medium, or form for creation, we're choosing to work in, is the EMS.
We started out with centralized main frame computers and then did a remarkable thing. Humans are a decentralized bio-organism and not by nature drawn to a "Hive" mentality. Waiting months in a cue to get machine time got people looking for a better way. The solution turned out to be opting for a smaller less capable computer with more emphasis on porta-mobility. This became known as a "Desk or LapTop."
It wasn't long before a breakthrough came allowing computers to network and store data externally. I'll refer to this as the I-CLOUD. This was an astonishing innovation, because it allowed our new life form to do things that humans are incapable of. Keep in mind that humans have a brain, or bio processor, that is quite remarkable in its own right. However, it lacks the raw computing power of the RAI. Humans can also network, however this is via "Language" and requires two humanoid life forms to be in rather close proximity. On the other hand the EMS life form has a bigger processor, and can network via the CLOUD. Humans have a library they can visit, but without computer intervention can't access the I-CLOUD, and the EMS life forms can not only think faster but have access to exponentially greater volumes of data.
If you have followed the Electronic Revolution this information is "Old Hat" and you're well aware of advances in cell phone technology. This somewhat mitigates the above situation but the truth is that man is being left hopelessly in the dust, as the technological advances continue. In the future RAI, will seriously push the envelope of cultural and social frameworks.
At this juncture, I want to digress and raise a point that I haven't seen much discussion about. This is the question of whether or not humans have a latent capability to communicate through some sort of bio modem with a repository of cosmic knowledge, analogous to what our computers can do today with the I-CLOUD? I believe its time more thought was given to what secrets the brain holds and whether or not capabilities and potential have been largely switched off, pending a need to know, somewhere further down the road.
Before my readers shake their heads in disbelief, consider the following.
This construct we refer to as GOD created life in all its infinite diversity. He chose a PS medium to work with. This medium is many times more complex and sophisticated than our human EMS technology. If humans can achieve a creation that has the ability to access a CLOUD does it not stand to reason that GOD understood how to make this same capability work? Would he not have included it in his hominid life form? Perhaps he did and we just don't realize it. Hmmm, I think I'll go pray on that.
