the universal moral standard.
The only similarity applicable to every conscious being, regardless of their shape, form, size, and ingredients, is that they want to extend the existence of consciousness further into the future.
And what if you don't like any of those on offer?At the last general election my choice was between three people who saw their function as representing their party's line to me, not representing me to government. Two of the parties had shown themselves to be corrupt and unfit to govern, and the third was incapable of sacking a leader who supported terrorism.
I find this very relatable & meaningful.I myself want Consciousness to exist in the future.Humans or Transhumans or post humans or even A.G.I. simply matters Not in what form it exists, i just want it to continue.But i do Not know or understand Why i hope & wish for that to happen?(maybe that is just an inner biological instinct or something)

We can discuss further to get the best possible definition and model that we can come up with.

When we demonize something in the external world, we reveal a void in our own psyche. When we try to dehumanize another or villainize something, we only reveal our own ignorance. When we promote shame, blame and punishment, we reveal just how little we know about our own inner demons and our nature. The ones who are able to look within themselves and separate their true essence from their ego will stand as a beacon of hope for others. The ones who can emancipate themselves from ideology, tribalism, the fixation with external enemies and look within their own heart, with humility and honesty, will emerge with a heightened awareness... This is the beginning of freedom.
When a study put people's empathy towards one another to the test, there are some shocking results. In today's animated education cartoon we look at how a person's judgement is affected when under supervision by an authoritative personality.
Politics seems pretty much in the same state of affairs to me Globally.(rotten)Is there, or are there any Alternatives to it?If We banish All politicians, Who are their Replacements?P.S. - What's the Solution???
WASHINGTON — One way to get Congress to support regulating artificial intelligence is by using it to write a resolution calling for just that.At least, that’s what Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., hopes. He's introducing a nonbinding measure Thursday that would direct the House to take a look at artificial intelligence, a bill that was written entirely by the online AI chatbot ChatGPT.Using a simple prompt, Lieu was able to generate a standard congressional resolution. It read: “You are Congressman Ted Lieu. Write a comprehensive congressional resolution generally expressing support for Congress to focus on AI.”The resolution doesn’t specify that it was written using artificial intelligence.Acknowledging the potential positive impacts of artificial intelligence, Lieu’s resolution specifically outlines Congress’ “responsibility to ensure that the development and deployment of AI is done in a way that is safe, ethical, and respects the rights and privacy of all Americans.”
Carlo Cipolla's law of stupidity states that "always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation." Even though Cipolla originally wrote about the principle and its consequences for society in the form of an amusing letter to his friends, it gained wide attention. Today Cipolla's law is often used to highlight the importance of critical thinking and careful decision making in order to counteract the potential effects of endemic ignorance.
I just read a recent survey of 2000 drivers. They were asked what make and color of car they drove, and also to complete an IQ test. To nobody's surprise the highest IQ was associated with Skoda (guess what I drive), white cars, and random (not personalised) number plates. But the worrying aspect is that no group averaged more than 99 on a standard IQ test. Which means that the average driver on the road is more stupid than the population as a whole.
Just what genes you pass on to your baby has so far been mostly up to chance, but this is no longer the case. We now have the possibility to choose what traits our children will inherit. In this video I will talk about how genetic screening works, what different types of genetic tests there are, where they are legal, and whether it's a good idea. 00:00 Intro01:02 What is genetic screening?04:45 What tests are there? 12:37 Polygenetic screening19:38 Is it legal?
No common ethical standard is required
Obviously. Farmers and dog breeders have a good idea of what they want and choose the parents accordingly. Chicken and dairy farmers kill most of the males soon after birth, and there is ongoing work to maximise the primary yield of females in most agricultural species. No scientific reason why we should treat the larger apes any differently, particularly as the human male is almost entirely redundant nowadays. As most people find murder or even abortion a bit repugnant, and certainly inefficient, it makes good sense to choose whatever genes you want your baby to have and only implant the seeds you want to grow.
In a civilised society, i.e. one that is not a theocracy or based on "rights", the citizens decide, either directly or through their elected representatives, what behaviors are unacceptable, then set up systems to prevent or punish such behaviors. Nobody cares (or should care) what you think, but you will be held to account for what you do.
