A Hazy Blog

By Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

I like to think (and the sooner the better!) of a cybernetic meadow where mammals and computers live together in mutually programming harmony like pure water touching clear sky.

I like to think (right now, please!) of a cybernetic forest filled with pines and electronics where deer stroll peacefully past computers as if they were flowers with spinning blossoms.

I like to think (it has to be!) of a cybernetic ecology where we are free of our labors and joined back to nature, returned to our mammal brothers and sisters, and all watched over by machines of loving grace.

Not by any means a hypothesis, more a thought based on what I have read. I am thinking it could be possible for humans to become a highly submissive creature way in the future, utilising an increased form of hypersociability. We already have begun to do what Artificial Intelligence tells us to do, albeit a lot of it is preprogrammed but on some devices, Artificial Intelligence can decide for itself based on data. Therefore in the future, how extreme can this basis become and would it affect our genetic evolution to the point where we become that submissive we basically become pets to Artificial Intelligence, a severe form of humans using Artificial Intelligence to improve upon there lives, so much to the point we are no longer capable of making decisions for ourselves.

Taking a look at a present day, similar example, domesticated wolves or dogs as we now know them, over time have evolved that much to be submissive and friendly towards humans they literally have something similar to an extreme hypersociality disorder found in humans known as Williams syndrome. If Williams syndrome that is human can form in wolves over time then surely the same thing can happen to a vast majority of humans perhaps?
