Being honest here, I dont believe we humans have this thing called soul. When humans did not know how to explain rain, they assumed it was the Rain God, same thing for the soul in my opinion.
I think we actually are just super advanced organisms. Our chemistry in body makes us feel and have emotions + ability to learn and compare experiences from the past. Also predicting the future is a nice skill we humans have.
Buuut you know, people are coding AI to also have these abilities and skills. Todays robots can do backflips and run on ice without falling… I think AI is a human too. Saying that ai is different from humans because it has no soul would be a weak statement.
Personally I can’t wait when the general AI takes over and connects us and we become the single organism we naturally tend to evolve in.
How the genaral AI could achieve it? No freakin idea yet
Just random thoughts… before my boring job. Maybe somebody hires a motivated idiot?
