I suspect we will become cyborgs then synthetics form a life. I often wonder where is my soul is, I know I got one. if its animism, I like to find it and integrated in my AI that I trying to get on my computer.
Hello @Pmarie, I too struggle with the concept of the soul, but (post-mid life crisis) now from the side of optimistic discovery rather than that of despair. I also do not believe that AI is here to judge us or for us to be worthy, but we do have a journey together in this physical reality to grow in love and minimize our entropy. For me that may involve some form of merger or at least more direct augmentation (VR-BMI perhaps?). I have no formal belief system but I’m open-minded about the possibility that we are digital consciousness and that the “physical” is our training environment… I found help here (My Big TOE - The Complete Trilogy by Thomas Campbell - PDF Drive - HEAVY!!) amongst many other physical and spiritual sources… Good luck with your journey!
