A Citizen Robot

laitman_263In the News (Daily Mail): “On October 25, Sophia, a delicate looking woman … made international headlines. She’d just become a full citizen of Saudi Arabia — the first robot in the world to achieve such a status.

“‘I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction. This is historical to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with a citizenship,’ Sophia said …

“I want to live and work with humans so I need to express the emotions to understand humans and build trust with people. …

“Hanson said on the company website. ‘We envision that a rough symbiotic partnership with us, our robots will eventually evolve to become super intelligent genius machines that can help us solve the most challenging problems we face here in the world.’

“His creation echoes his thoughts. ‘I want to use my AI to help humans lead a better life,’ Sophia said. ‘Like design smarter homes, build better cities of the future.’”

My Comment: And later, will these robots discuss among them, “Should we revoke man’s citizenship?”

They will create a similar council and will reach the opinion, “Is there anything good about this miserable protein-based creature? We should revoke its citizenship. How is it any different from an animal? It isn’t. It just pollutes the environment and ruins our robots’ lives. We are pure, corrected, perfect, while man just poisons himself and the environment. We need to get rid of these people.”

Remark: Much is being said today about artificial intelligence, robots…

My Comment: A robot will never become human because it does not have a soul. The soul is not something that we can design or place in a body. Even if I were to take pieces of a human body and start connecting them in some way—connecting them to electrodes to enliven them with electricity or anything else—I won’t be able to enliven it to such an extent that it will become human rather than an animal.

That is, we can gather some kind of protein body out of natural elements, but we will never be able to connect a soul to that body. In other words, the question about the meaning of life and existence, what is inside of us, and besides, we have no idea how much that defines us as people, we will never be able to understand it or endow a robot with it.

Remark: But a robot is designed to make humanity happy.

My Comment: What can that unfortunate machine do to make humanity happier? Give it electrical power? Will it give to others the same way as it is connected to electrical power? How does it understand the notion of happiness?

Question: When will people become disillusioned with artificial intelligence, in robots?

Answer: Very soon. Humanity will become disillusioned with this faster than it can manufacture a batch of robots.

There is nothing far-sighted about this. Man doesn’t need it. I can make my life easier, but then very quickly I will be left with nothing to do and will virtually bring myself to the brink of extinction.

Question: By doing this are we setting up a dead-end for ourselves?

Answer: Of course, just as all of our achievements in any sort of endeavors will all eventually lead us to disappointment, and we will choose a different path, then a third and, so on.

Kabbalah Is For Traditional Medicine

laitman_622.01Question: What will the development of medicine be like with the constant integration of Kabbalistic principles?

Answer: I think that with the constant implementation of Kabbalistic principles, medicine will start to take the back seat, as there will be less and less need for it. However, modern conventional medicine will not be replaced by acupuncture, massage, or other kinds of alternative medicine.

Despite our aggressive use of pharmaceuticals, we still live to our 80’s. That was not the case before. And it is all due to our “terrible” artificial diet and our “terrible” medicine. In any case, it does support us.

On one hand, we can criticise it, but on the other, how do we explain being able to live to such an old age? Where did diseases and terrible plagues go that used to afflict all of humanity?

Kabbalah is for traditional medicine, in addition, as needed, with something else. But generally speaking, eat normal food, use traditional medicine, live peacefully, and work on developing your soul.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 200

Laitman_511.01Question: I have seen a lot of your videos and I am working on an analysis of the Torah. I am very grateful to you for helping people searching for the truth. But I have a personal question. I am 38 years old; I am a woman.

I will not succeed in raising myself to the highest level of attainment alone, and around me there are no men who are studying the wisdom of Kabbalah with whom I would be able to create a relationship in order to study the Torah together and to provide each other with mutual help. This is the only way I can imagine a marriage.

Do you have any opportunities in this direction?

Answer: In the framework of our organization in many countries in the world, through the Internet, you will be able to find your partner!
