Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What are the full implications of ‘Deepfake’?“
While there is a lot of anxiety regarding the implications of deepfake technology, I think that it could help correct the world.
Deepfake could help bring us closer to the truth, prompting us to outsmart the phenomena that we create in order to confuse each other. In other words, it could help us reach a state where we simply believe nothing that we see and hear in the media. Therefore, I see such developments as positive because they become part of our path to a state where we see that the whole world is fake.
We will come to realize that there is no truth anywhere, that everything we produce is us lying to ourselves. We actually live that way today, but we are not yet fully aware of it. Deepfake technology would help clarify that we are living in a lie. And when we reach such a realization, we will gain a stronger demand for a greater truth, a genuine perception and sensation of the true reality that we exist in.
