Singularity. Dialogues on artificial intelligence and spirituality

Mieke Mosmuller

“But there could come a time when the cloud of information could spread out over the whole cosmos at a greater speed than light can, and even radiate through the black holes to outside cosmic areas - that is to say, areas we cannot know yet.”

“I mean, by singularity you mean that all the usual known laws lose their meaning and that something sort of explodes, causing the whole of existence - space and time and the people - to take on a di erent form.  at is what you call ‘singularity’ and you envisage it as a capacity of arti cial intelligence, through which the computational capacity of Man increases to such an extent, thanks to AI, that what you can then do in a second, you cannot do now in a whole lifetime. Isn’t that what it is?”

“It’s something like that ... ”

“Of course, the chess player also thinks and wonders what the countermoves will be if she does this or that. Of course, she can’t foresee all possible steps - neither can the computer, but it can sequentially make and calculate them. But what is completely lost from sight is that it is a game, and that it is the joy of the game! A game you have to be able to play correctly, but also to play wrongly. It’s not about one sort of perfection  ghting with another perfection, because then it doesn’t make any sense at all. It is all about enjoying the game.”

'A book that enters into the greatest spiritual struggle of the present in a powerful way.' Gerold Aregger, Gegenwart 3/2019
