I think that Artificial Intelligence opens the door to the new Copernican revolution.
In this post, I will seek to elaborate on this idea, but on a somewhat less abstract concept.
And it all starts with a question: how the brain creates the mind or how the mind creates the brain?
This is because the question I see most in books, articles, videos, etc. is the first, that is, a paradigm, that our mind is formed by our brain. However, what if the truth is just the opposite? Will we really find the ways to solve the mysteries of intelligence and consciousness that we so desire? Or, in this case, will we be doomed to uncertainty and historical error?
The second question, i.e., how the mind creates the brain, seems to me to be the most logical and close to the truth, with all respect to those who think otherwise (the overwhelming majority). And I propose to the market a model of neural networks with multi-propagation of information, opening the door to this second question.
For a better understanding of the hypothesis of this intriguing second question, imagine an archer and any target with an arrow. Consider now that your brain is the archer, and your mind is the target. At first, this seems to be the least logical, as the first question. Now imagine the opposite, namely that your mind is the archer, and your brain the target. Does not that seem more logical?
And, in practice, we have a cause-and-effect relationship that can change everything we know about intelligence and artificial consciousness.
What is the correct hypothesis? We do not have any scientific evidence, so it seems to me more logical to keep the two questions in the air, and relative models and ideas, for comparison.
And perhaps the correct answer lies in the two questions, not just one of them. That is, a hypothesis similar to the multi-propagation model where the mind originally forms our brain, but our brain has the capacity to change our mind with its fantastic processing potential to turn reality into representations and scenarios for analysis of our mind.
And, to be honest, the hypothesis of a mind that originally forms our brain that also has the capacity to change our mind, seems to me the most logical of all that I’ve thought of until today.
In my mind, of course.
