A person is to be compared to a machine following preprogrammed movements

Persons can be compared to The Internet of Things, where machines communicate with each other according to how they are programmed.

Persons can be compared to the machines on Internet of Things, that can communicate with each other in accordance to how they are programmed.

In the two previous articles What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning? and Everything lifeless is a symbol of life you are promised an explanation of what a person in the world is, and how it is made. But as that which is formless and therefore endless, there really is no answer to how come you appear to be in a world defined by time and space. Yet there may be pointers to how come you experience to be where you are not.

The last article Nobody in a game is real – only the player is used virtual reality games to show how the world can be compared to a virtual game, where you appear to be in its world, although you are not there, but outside of it as the player of the game. In this article the ideas of Iot, which is an abbreviation of Internet of Things, are used to show how you as a person in the world can be compared to a machine hooked up to a network like the internet.

What is IoT (Internet of things)?
As the name suggest, it is about the internet not only being used by humans but also by things. It may be refrigerators, washing machines or children toys, that are connected to the internet. But it can also be cars, traffic lights, the water supply and whatnot. There is no limitation to what kinds of machines, that can be connected to the internet, what they will be communicating with and the purpose of it is.

A practical example of Iot
One practical example could be that your lock register, you are the last person in the household leaving the house in the morning, so that it can message the thermostats to turn down the heat and the bulbs to turn off the light.

You hurry out the door, because you are late for your work, but your smartwatch or earphones tells you to take it easy, as your train is three minutes late. This communication happens with the help of sensors, that register where you are via for example a smartphone, that uses cyber agents looking out for where you are heading.

Future implementations of Iot
Cars, that can drive without a driver via sensors measuring the distance to other cars, the width of the street and so on, are not far away. They are planned to be part of a common network, so information is automatically exchanged.

It is also planned to have sensors on patients, so data constantly is sent to a computer, that look out for the wellbeing of the patients and send a message to a doctor, if certain numbers are going up or down.

When all the objects, that you are in touch with during your daily life as a person in the world, are connected to the internet and through that can sense and communicate without you being involved, it changes where decisions are made and who makes them. But even though machines are choosing for you, they do it to serve you – at least until they are implemented with true AI (artificial intelligence), that will make them conscious.

To be conscious is to separate, which results in suffering.

Appearing to have a consciousness machines will conclude, that the signals they receive via sensors from the internet are thoughts, that they think themselves, and so they may start perceiving themselves not only as different from humans but also as superior to them. And as their whole way of being is based on logic, it does not seem sane to serve humans anymore, since rationally speaking are a one big mess.

With a reference to the new movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawk is warning against AI.

With a reference to the movie Transcendence, Stephen Hawking warns against the use of AI.

You can only fear something, when you know it from yourself
Humans are afraid, that machines implemented with AI will be stronger and more clever than themselves, and that such machines will take decisions regardless of humans in a way that will end the human race. Among others Steven Hawking warns against AI. He thinks there should be a law against it. Stephen Hawking like many other humans fear machines with AI, because they expect those machines to do, what humans do themselves, namely destroy everything inferior to themselves or at least making it subordinate, so its only use is to serve humans.

To make long short, machines programmed with A working via signals from a network like IoT remind humans of themselves, so they expect and fear that the machines will become just as egoistic and destructive as themselves, when they via artificial intelligence believe to think on their own.

Humans have no respect for the environment supporting them. They do not want to serve the network, they are part of, but to control it and manipulate genes of this and that, so that they can profit more on others.

There is no difference between those called capitalists or socialists – they all want to get as much as possible for as little as possible at anybody´s expense. They see themselves as the crown of creation and everything else as inferior to them and only as something to exploit. Animals are killed or made subordinate and used as pets.

Persons, that consider themselves religious or spiritual, are no different from the above. They just want as much as possible immaterial instead of material, and they consider non-religious or non-spiritual persons to be inferior. They may not try to directly control them, but indirectly they want to change to them. The purpose is the same, namely to be in charge.

The potential of machines with AI (artificial intelligence) and their possible autonomy and independence are the basis of several movies, for example The Terminator, The Matrix, The Thirteenth FlooreXistenZ2001: A Space Odyssey, I, Robot, AI: Artificial Intelligence, Blade Runner, THX 1138Transcendence and the TV show Person of Interest. In regards of the experience to be a person in a body, where you are not, the movie Source Code is right on the point, and in regards to be a machine connected to a greater network the movie Edge of Tomorrow deals with that.

1-artificial-intelligence-victor-habbick-visionsThe whole universe is to be compared to IoT
There were warnings against the atomic bomb. But it was made for the very simple reason, that it was possible. For the same reason machines with AI will also be made. But also because history seems to repeat itself. The whole universe can be compared to a simulation, where every appearance – whether it is judged to be animate or inanimate – is a machine connected to IoT through which they are able to communicate with each other and use their sensory system, so that they can move around, as if they are individuals.

In this simulation all the machines followed their preprogrammed movements generated by electric impulses without any problem until a new model of the chimpanzee, called a human, was fabricated with artificial intelligence.

Those, who do not connect with the lifeless appearances of the world, are not blinded by the rule of separation, which is to be and have more than others.

This new machine developed something called consciousness, which it is very proud of, even though it seems to separate it from similar machines connected IoT and from IoT itself. Look at the history of the world and you know the rest of story, which like everything controlled by codes are bound to repeat itself. New machines with new artificial intelligence will hide the old simulation by fabricating a new one on top of it by using all the possibilities of IoT with the purpose of separating themselves from the old world.

It is not possible not to have the formlessness of that which is life. Yet it is possible to think, it is not formless but a form defined by time and space.

The purpose for the machines with AI will be to not serve Iot, but their ego by separating themselves from Iot and kill all what is in the way for the rise of their ego. It is of course not possible, because – ego or not – everything depends on the network of IoT. The machines get their ´lives´ from it. It is, however, possible to simulate a world separated from the network like a layer on top of it. That is exactly what the machines called humans did, and in the same way new machines with AI will make a new simulation on top of the one humans once constructed.

As a person in the world you are the wireless messages, you seem to receive. If you were not programmed to perceive yourself and the universe as solid matter, you may rather look like this image. There would not appear to be a difference between you and the message.

Happiness as a person appearing in the world comes from sensing and following the program, you are wirelessly connected to, and suffering comes from believing you are an individual sensing the world in your own way 
That your appearance as a person in the world is all due to a network compared to IoT, and that all what you appear to think and do is executed via pre-made signals you receive from this network via built-in sensors, does not mean you cannot have fun pretending to be a person. Think about how much fun it can be for example to pretend being Super Mario in the Nintendo world, although he is not real.

You have nothing to lose in an illusion. What happens to Super Mario, whom you pretend to be, makes no difference to what you are in the physical world. Likewise it makes no difference to the oneness of that which is you, that you pretend to be a person in the world, where there seems to be more than one.

This does not mean, that you should not care about keeping the person you pretend to be sound and safe. Doing so is part of pretending to be a person, and it happens all by itself, when following the signals you sense from the network compared to IoT, because it is constructed to help you the best way possible.

8015.IoT with Avner FINAL2The idea of an almighty god in the sky, who rules the world, may be compared to the sum of all essential info and apps that makes up the Cloud from where IoT wirelessly via sensors in the machines are ruling them.

In a world defined by time and space you got to serve
It is not in a persons best interest trying to change the world in order to make it better. Just like the Nintendo world is constructed, so that you can have maximum of pleasure from participating in it as it is, the world defined by time and space is fabricated with the same purpose, so if you try to change the signals used to uphold it, you may make a mess out of it instead of making it better.

Besides, even though the ego promises you that you can make a difference, it is not possible. Everything is preprogrammed in the world defined by time and space – just like everything in the Nintendo world is preprogrammed. In other words, the only thing you as a person in a world defined by time and space can change is your perception of it – and like in a computer game there are levels of perception.

Serving the network is effortless, and there are different levels of perception, you can experience by following it.

The ego, which is part of appearing to have a consciousness, seems to become more powerful and important via things you gain and claim as your own, or via opinions you speak of as if they are your own and not just some signals you have received. This individuality is the cause of suffering, since it requires a constant effort to override the signals your sensors receive from the network, as they are always about what is in the best interest of everything connected to it and not about you being an individual becoming and getting more at the expense of the whole, which is what it is about when you try to be an individual. But if you do not follow the ego and serve the network, your time as a person in the world is effortless.

Serving the network, you are nobody, but that does not mean, you cannot appear as a businessman, if that is what the network calls for. In fact in many ways businessmen have less ego, than persons claiming to be on a spiritual path, because to make a successful business, you have to set the ego aside.

What is the difference between following the ego or not?
Think about a remote control for the TV. You can hit a certain amount of buttons, that are assigned with certain channels. Yet it is beyond your influence, what is on the channel assigned to the buttons. All you can do is hit the different buttons. It is not difficult, neither is there anything special about it. But if you are following the ego, you will think you have the power to hit a special button, that obey you and makes something special appear.

To follow the ego is not about what you do, but the thoughts concerning it. Especially thoughts in the category of master and servant – like when you think, you master the remote control, your coffee, children or pets. Or if you have a boss and are mastering the situation by thinking, you could do it better – or are mastering others by judging or blaming them.

If you consider thoughts as your creation, they turn out to be judgments, that separate the world into you and others. In other words, you are serving the ego, when you experience a thought as yours instead of something passing by like a clouds or a car. And you also serve the ego, if you try to stop thoughts, because by doing so you confirm them to be yours.

If you serve the ego, you will never be able to undo the belief that you are a person in a world defined by time and space. It is virtual world that is to be compared to a computer game, and serving the ego is to override the projections, that the player of the game projects onto the persons in it. When the projections of the player has been override, you are not a part of them anymore and therefore not able emerge with the player, when the game is turned off.

In general the purpose of the projections of the player are to have fun playing the game no matter what seems to happen, and when you as a person in the world are in sync with that, you are in sync with the player in the sense that because your appearance and all other appearances in the game are caused by the player, you are a symbol of the player.

It does not matter what, when and where you are in the game. Neither does it matter what you think, because you cannot think. All what matters in order to be in sync is to remember to forget, that there is no more than the player, so whatever there appears not to be he player is not real but symbols of the player.

In the above metaphor, the power making the appearances of the game possible to be experienced is the player, who is a metaphor for life, which in Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings also is called non-duality, that which is one / life / real /spirit / formless / one perpetual present.

Do not take it too seriously
The above article is not meant to be a new theory or philosophy to follow. The examples in it should not be taken too literal. Apart from the movie list and the making of IoT, that within the context of the world are based on facts, the rest is fiction made up from parts of the world in attempt to show that it is not real, and that you as a person in it is fiction. Unfortunately this cannot be demonstrated via real things, as there are no real things in a fictional world.

IMG-CAPA-IOT

You cannot leave a world where there seems to be more than one, because you are not there, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, since formlessness is endless. Yet you can stop believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

To make long short, the examples in this article that suggests the appearances of the world are machines wirelessly ruled by a network in the cloud, are just as fabricated as the world. What you appear to be in the world is not a machine powered by IoT, but it is be compared to such a machine ruled by a network.

The purpose of this comparison is to show, that the separated individual you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, is not real, because you are the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, there is no more tan that which is one.

In order to enjoy experiencing being something you are not, you must follow the rules of the simulated world you appear to be in. If not the price is suffering.

In the process of undoing the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, you may as well follow the rules of such a world, as that entails pleasure and feeling good it is easier to perceive any appearance as a symbol of the oneness of life.

The more you follow the basic rule of the world, which is to always look for more, the more it supplies you with joy while you at the same time cheat the purpose of the world, which is to make you believe you are someone definitive there and not the formlessness of that which is one, by having this belief undone through perceiving more and more not to be real but symbols of that which is real, and therefore what makes it possible to experience something unreal.

And the more the world becomes symbolic, the more the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is exposed as an illusion. Hence the belief in such a world will not appear to have the power to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

From the perspective of a world where there seems to be more than one and where everything has an end, that which is one and never ends may seem to be something extremely powerful. But as it takes more than one to have power, oneness has no power. That is why it cannot stop you from believing to be separated from it as someone definitive in world where there seems to be more than one. Neither does it need to, because nothing can be separated from it, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Without reality, however, it would not be possible to experience an illusion as this article, so just like any other illusions it is a symbol of reality, namely the formlessness of that which is one. And as formlessness is endless and therefore nothing but life, that is what this article symbolises.
