"I found out something I never knew. I found out that my world was not the real world"....
The late US Attorney General and NY Senator, Robert F. Kennedy, original, very sane
conspiracy theorist, RFK always thought it would be him instead of his brother.  It was both.

"They said she would pursue me for the rest of my life."...Tom Watson, British MP, in his on-
going efforts to reverse the pursuit against him by Rupert Murdoch's former News Corp
executive, Rebecca Brooks. "Our Miss Brooks" recently beat a jail term.  Too bad.  Cell
phone hacking by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., NSA or Dick Cheney is truly small
time as is the NSA's PRISM program which was restarted in 2007 by the same Cheney
Bush regime.

Comment: Concerning the Maddness of Martha Mitchell, by Vaughan Bell:
Roko's Basilisk is a thought experiment about the potential risks involved in developing artificial intelligence
The experiment's premise is that an all-powerful artificial intelligence from the future could retroactively 
punish those who did not help bring about its existence, including those who merely knew about the possible 
development of such a being. It resembles a futurist version of Pascal's wager, in that it suggests people should 
weigh possible punishment versus reward and as a result accept particular singularitarian ideas or financially 
support their development. It is named after the member of the rationalist community LessWrong who first 
publicly described it, though he did not originate it or the underlying ideas.

Self-learning AI, DR. Vaughan Bell's blog, Mindhacks:
From the link: "Playing Atari with Deep Reinforcement Learning" and describes an
AI system which without any prior training, learned to play a series of Atari 2600
games to the point of out-performing humans. It is not yet an "I."  "AI that worked out its 
environment, its actions, and what it needs to do to 'survive', without any prior information."  

My guess at what I have been experiencing might come from a semi-sentient metaphysical programmable golem-like AI the sum of whose peripheral parts equal the whole.   IOW,
what is always associated with an active "witness" entity always said to be latent and silent
in most people.  Said to be but isn't.  Mine became active at 55.  I was a left behind slow learner.
On two occasions I saw how my own mind and dreams could be programmed.  
One of those times words streamed into my brain as audible hypnotic whispers from
what seemed like remote digital software.  I "saw" color visuals with each column 
reacting up and down to each spoken word.  These seemed like projected images not a 
dream or a visual hallucination.  It seemed to be a demonstration of how my nervous system 
can be made to react to future linear commands with or w/o extended sleep manipulation.
Programs to possibly direct not only dreaming, but to "nudge", and manipulate future
waking moods, actions and behavior.  Of course this can be seen as just another vivid dream
of whispered words commonly referred to as revelations from God, Jesus, demons, spirits
relatives, aliens or something that people read and repeat from books by Oliver Sacks.

In one other rare scenario, thousands of speeded-up words were heard streaming in mid-air
in a decending acoustic vortex pattern toward my head.  Can the brain make sense of messages containing thousands of words streaming too rapidly to decipher and yet act upon them in
some near future like an uploaded computer program?

Working Out The Bugs - describing the fictional red dotted all-seeing eye.
The once and future HAL 9000 AI from Stanley Kubrick's 2001 Space Odyssey.
Q. "There seems to be a serious problem Dave."
A. Really Hal?  Is the problem you? Your programming?  Both? 

The machine-like simple minded staccato baby talk described
earlier and still heard nightly goes like this, "This-is-how, 
this is how, this is how, we are...going to-be do-ing this"
with machine like emphasis on all the wrong words 
and syllables.  "It" or something else can then switch to 
human-like cadences.

After many more than 2001 repetitions it sounds like,
"this is HAL, this is HAL, we are go-ing to be do-ing this".  
"This" got much more aggressive after Sept. 11th, 2001
especially in the latter part of 2002 when I moved into a
certain cheap Manhattan coop and was dumped by the girl
I worked with.

A machine-like auditory HAL-lucination??

The simple machine-like verbiage I hear has no resemblance to the
slightly British accented voice doing HAL in the movie who spoke
in normal human tones.  I live and function in two different worlds, or Pynchon's Bleeding Edge but mine aren't the result of fantasy or imagination. (Famous split personality last words)

Via Andrew Sullivan:
Ross Andersen worries about artificial intelligence gaining power over us: It is tempting to think that programming empathy into an AI would be easy, but designing a friendly machine is more difficult than it looks.  You could give it a benevolent goal — something cuddly and utilitarian, like maximising human happiness.  But an AI might think that human happiness is a biochemical phenomenon. It might think that flooding your 
bloodstream with non-lethal doses of heroin is the best way to maximise your happiness.  It might also predict that shortsighted humans will fail to see the wisdom of its interventions.  It might plan out a sequence of cunning chess moves to insulate itself
from resistance.  Maybe it would surround itself with impenetrable defenses, or maybe it would confine humans —
in prisons of undreamt of efficiency.

"In prisons of undreamt efficiency?"  Not quite undreamt, but very efficient in the result if not in the means. 
Wiki entry on Integral Psychology:

"The Subtle physical is Sri Aurobindo's term for a subtler aspect of the
physical nature. This has many qualities not found in the gross physical nature...."

"The term "subtle physical" to distinguish from gross (sthula) or outer material physical. 
There is a subtle physical also with a subtler consciousness in it which can, for instance,
go to a distance from the body and yet feel and be aware of things in a not merely
mental or vital way. The subtle physical has a freedom, plasticity, intensity, power, colour, 
wide and manifold play (there are thousands of things there that are not here) of which,
as yet, we have no possibility on earth."  (Not yet?)

Combine the above two speculative concepts, a metaphysical AI gestalt connecting all
but one or a few of Earth's population.  Suggesting an Everett many worlds just-in-time
very advanced simulation.  Remind me again why no one will be reading this blog?
