|| NONDUALISM & THE FALLACIES OF PANPSYCHISM & ARTIFICIAL SENTIENCE | VIDEO ||
We live in culture dominated by two contrived metaphysical inferences : That the world exists outside consciousness and that particular arrangements of matter in that world somehow generate consciousness .
This distorted view of reality feeds the delusory dreams of artificial consciousness so prevalent in the media today , such as in movies like Ex Machina .
In contrast to science fiction , however , there is the cold science fact of our complete failure to articulate , even in principle , how particular arrangements of matter could possibly generate consciousness .
But instead of forcing our culture to revise its mistaken metaphysics , this failure is leading to a new delusion : panpsychism , or the notion that consciousness is in all matter , as opposed to all matter in consciousness .
Under panpsychism , consciousness is fundamentally fragmented , just as matter appears to be . Single atoms allegedly have very simple consciousness , while more complex psyches , such as our own , can be built bottom-up by connecting atoms together .
In this video , we will see how both panpsychism and our dreams of artificial consciousness arise from a delusory interpretation of the facts of reality , as available to experience .
We will see that consciousness is not created , but the framework wherein all creation happens .
We will see that consciousness is not fundamentally fragmented , but fundamentally one .
We will see that individual psyches do not arise from bottom-up integration , but from top-down dissociation of a single consciousness .
Finally , we will see how all this follows directly from true nondualism .
