आखिर पाकिस्तान हमारा दुश्मन क्यों है?

हमारे यहाँ ही नही, दुनियाभर में सिस्टम बच्चों को यही सिखाती आईं हैं के किसको प्यार करना है, कितना प्यार करना है और कब प्यार करना है।

हम पैदा समझदार होते हैं लेकिन हमें स्कूल भेजा जाता है ताकि हम जान पायें की हमारा धर्म सर्वश्रेष्ठ है और दूसरों का धर्म बेकार। हमारे मन मे अलग अलग भय बैठा दिया जाता है ताकि बड़े होकर हम भी उसी सिस्टम का भाग बने।

यह धर्म और जाति तक ही सीमित नही होता। हमे बताया जाता है हमें किन देशों को पसंद करना है और किससे नफरत। हम भूल जाते हैं कि अगला भी इन्सान है। हमारी उनके प्रति नफरत हमें यह सोचने भी नही देती की अगले ने हमारा क्या बिगाड़ा।

वो तो स्कूल और मीडिया ने कहा दिया कि पाकिस्तान हमारा दुश्मन है। क्या सचमुच वहां रह रहे लोगों ने अपना कुछ बिगाड़ा है? वे भी उसी सिस्टम का शिकार हैं। उन्हें बताया गया कि हिंदुस्तान उनके लिए खतरा है।

सिस्टम क्या है? इसके पीछे कौन हैं? क्यों हमे हर पल, हर घड़ी गुमराह किया जा रहा है? इसका उत्तर कभी और दूंगा। अभी इतना जान लीजिए के politicians और media भी उसी सिस्टम का शिकार है। चाह कर भी निर्णय नही ले पाते क्योंकि नमक का हक अदा करना है... और society (सत्ता) में बने रहना हैं।

सेकुलर बनाम तुष्टिकरण - भाई जागो, क्यों 18वी सदी में रहना चाहते हो?

कई सारे देशों का कॉपी पेस्ट है भारतीय संविधान। इसीलिए कुछ भी (नहीं) सही है। एक लाइन जिस बात को recommend करती है, दूसरी लाइन उसे ही prohibit करती है। ऐसे में जनता को झांसा देना (आसान) है। 1952 में तो ज़ल्दी थी।

अब बैठ कर इत्मीनान से नया संविधान लिखा जाये। और उसमें पहले secular का मतलब बदला जाये। पहले सेक्युलर शब्द में से तुष्टिकरण हटा दिया जाये। रिजर्वेशन व कोटा बाद में।

तुष्टिकरण के चलते बंगाल भी कश्मीर बन गया। तुष्टिकरण के कारण रोज केरल में RSS कार्यकर्ता मारे जा रहें है। और सरकार किसी की भी हो, इस सब से उनका कुछ लेना देना नहीं है। वो तो बस अगले चुनाव की तैयारियों में रहती हैं हमेशा।

यहाँ एक्शन भी वोटबैंक के हिसाब से लिया जाता है। कश्मीर में जवानों के हाथ पाँव बांध दिए और बंगाल में ममता को खुली छूट दे रखे हैं कि पुलिस अब हिन्दू उत्सवों पर समुदाय विशेष के लोगों पर लाठियां बरसाती है। उनके प्रार्थनास्थल से घंटियाँ तक छीन लीं जातीं हैं। उधर तमिलनाडु अपने को अलग राष्ट्र ही समझता है। किसी actor-turned-politician ने united states of south का जिम्मा ले लिया है।

काट दो। उधर से कश्मीर, इधर से बंगाल तो काट ही दो। फिर केरल व TN भी हटा ही दो। क्या रह जाता है?
किसीको क्या फर्क पड़ता है? हम सभी तो बस अगले महीने के इंतजार में जी लेते हैं। बाकी का संविधान जाने और उसका (नाजायज) प्रयोग करने वाले जाने।

देश को और कितने टुकड़ों में बांटेगे, अपने स्वार्थ के लिये? किसी को मजहब के नाम पर तो किसी को caste के नाम पर। किसी को उसकी भाषा के लिए target करते हैं और किसी को उनकी चमड़ी के रंग के आधार पर। ऐसे बनेगा देश?

बनाना कौन चाहता है? यहाँ तो बस देश की जनता को दबाना है ताकि फिर से कोई freedom struggle न शुरू हो जाये।

किसी दिन तो लोगों की आँखें खुलेंगी और वे देख पाएंगे की 70 साल पुराने, already दूसरों के प्राचीन संविधान पर आधारित भारतीय संविधान एवं सन 1800 के IPC को पूरे ओवरहॉलिंग की आवश्यकता है। देखें वो दिन हमारे जीवनकाल में आता है या अगले जन्म में।

Will you want to become Cyberorg? Neuralink aims just at that

Cyberorgs refer to living things that have enhanced abilities due to a computer chip in their brain. The living things could be humans or animals. Right now, there are few human cyberorgs and several lab animal cyberorgs.

Cyberorgs can also be biologically grown bodies containing an artificial brain populated with thoughts and ideas of a human body long dead/deceased. Wait. What? Doesn't that mean life after death? Yes, exactly!

Elon Musk... the same guy working on electric cars in Tesla Motors, transportation in Hyperloop, an elevator to the moon in SpaceX etc has bought a startup. This new venture is named Neuralink. Now what it does is something you've only seen in movies or read in science fiction books.

Neuralink is into creating Cyberorgs. The first thing it is working on is, to enhance qualities of humans by planting a chip into their brains. It is risky. The surgeon has to cut a part of skull to reach brain and then operate on brain to join its nerve centers to an externally or internally powered computer chip.

It is hard to locate and isolate the nerves responsible for different capabilities. Scientists are already working on that. It is even harder to connect those nerves to a computer chip. But we have examples where a totally paralyzed person got a brain chip implanted so that he can move his limbs simply using thoughts.

While the focus of Neuralink is to be able to create wonders by extreme enhancements in the human, few have also reported the possibility of being able to download data from human brain. Of course it will need a secure storage system & DNA based hard disks are completely suitable for the purpose. They can store data for ages.

If download is possible, uploading to brain is also possible. The data downloaded from brain can be fed to lab grown brains for use with humans and robots. While this is exciting, downloading and uploading data to brain may also be misused to feed certain thoughts to a large number of people who then think the same way.

Other than enhancing humans, Neuralink also aims at curing diseases like dementia, paralysis etc. We already have a person who has electrodes in his brain. These electrodes work based on thoughts and help the cyberorg in limb movements.

Since brain is involved, not many are willing for computer chips. However, there are volunteers who'd risk everything for a better life. Remember that the first human head transplant is scheduled just 8 months away. And there is actually a volunteer ready to get his head replaced. All this sounds like science fiction but is in fact, happening already. Will you want to go under a knife to remove some health problem or to enhance your capabilities by getting the brain operated?

Smart Artificial Intelligence Dangers - What is Musk doing?

🛰When Stephen Hawkings said human race has the biggest threat from its own scientists, he was not totally wrong.

Elon Musk, of Tesla Motors, is going a bit too far with his science obsession. I can understand electric cars & Hyperloop transportation. I can also understand with his space ferrying plans where he has proposed to ferry people to the moon and back. Was it a space elevator? I can't recall.

Anyway, his team dealing with artificial intelligence has found that their machines have developed their own language for communicating with each other.

This is scary, because even animals on this planet can make certain sounds only, to express their feelings. None other than the humans have a full set of words that can be used for anything. And it is not restricted to few sounds with varying pitch. It is a whole complicated language.

Now Musk's team working on artificial intelligence says it has discovered that the machines in their experimental network, are using different words to communicate among themselves.

How is that possible unless the machines know and can imagine things? If I said "tree", your brain will first produce an imagination of the tree and then you understand what I said. So if Musk's scientists are true, it does mean a bit of own imagination for the machines.

Does it sound cool & exciting as people are still dealing with weak artificial intelligence or what I'd term as dumb artificial intelligence.

Does it not ring a bell, a danger sound perhaps, to stop playing with machine learning?

If the machines can automatically create and use a different language that you & I cannot understand, the day is not far when they gain awareness. And what happens once the machines gain awareness of they being distinct bodies?

Well, I am trying to stay positive but can't think of good scenarios. Will it become the Skynet from the movie Terminator or will the machines be humble enough to serve humans?

Only time can tell. But do we need to take such huge risks? We are already sitting on a ticking bomb. The possibility of nuclear war, change in climate due to global warming can put an end to human race any day. Under such circumstances, would it not be better for the powerful to stop messing with nature and to stop trying to become god?

I can only hope that smart artificial intelligence too aids in betterment of the planet as a whole. Because if it turns out the other way, we would be fighting tons of metal that can think and act faster than humans!

Maybe, it's time we taught moral science to the machines to avoid the dangers of artificial intelligence.👌😀

What are Cyberorgs? They are not a future thing

🛰 Cyberorgs are humans using computer chips to perform better in one or more areas of life. When I say Cyberorgs are *not* the future, I mean *they're already here.*

This is the story of using computer chips to make a paralyzed body move. And it's just one example. Read it here: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/i-have-a-computer-chip-in-my-brain-that-reads-my-thoughts
~
One day, we will be using technology to reprogram our brains: something like deleting unwanted parts of life (by killing those memory cells), superstition, beliefs, etc so that what remains is pure knowledge fed by experience or fed by uploading data to brain cells. It's not fiction. It's already on roll.

Faith vs Beliefs - Which is more important?

Confusion reigns when each belief is shattered one by one. Belief, they say, is genetic (प्रारब्ध कर्मा). You don't get to choose your earliest beliefs. They are fed to you even before you learn your alphabets.



Depending upon your early influencers, the belief turns into faith. Or the belief fades into the time.

Faith is again, individualized. It differs per individual. Faith can also be a result of varied beliefs backed with experience of own.

Some people change their faith by evaluating the "returns". There was this person who wanted to understand "phala shruti" (rewards?) of some hymn before he'd sing it. So much bargaining in the name of beliefs.

But beliefs don't last. Most of them are just our minds playing games. Faith has a longer life compared to beliefs. And your faith is much powerful than any of your beliefs.

There will be times when you'll see many of your beliefs, that you held close to your heart, start breaking. That's when confusion sets in and you'll feel lost. If anything (other than God) can keep you sane during that turmoil, it is your faith.

What I am trying to say is beliefs are not that important because they keep on changing as you learn more. But having faith is essential for survival. Mostly, it is the faith in God that keeps people going but it can also be faith in own self & own knowledge.

In short, keep the faith. That's your only weapon when beliefs break or fade out. You might hold a belief for long before it suddenly disappears. You may become miserable...how can it be wrong! In such scenarios and more, it is your faith that gives you reassurance & reasons to continue wherever you are headed.

Let me know if you understood the above because I am too confused right now and I need someone to explain it to me. But I think I got the answer in a broader sense. Thank you, whoever/whatever you are. 👍

Quotes to live by - March 17 2017


People change for two reasons. They change because their minds opened up or they change because their hearts broke. Both are related in most cases. A heart breaks to open up a mind or perception changes enough to break a heart.

Is Super Artificial Intelligence possible without senses?

Right now, all artificial intelligence in world is weak AI. It is weak because it can't think on its own (I can hear some scientists laughing at this sentence; Yeah, I know what you are up to).

super artificial intelligence


Everything from driverless cars to robotic surgeons are weak artificial intelligence. It is true that they learn things over time and get better at what they do. But that's it. All that programming for machine learning, becomes better at the thing it does.

Can it become aware of its surroundings & other jobs in this world? Is Super Artificial Intelligence possible, especially when there are no senses involved?

It is quite possible. Right now, we have electronic tongues that complement humans in wine tasting. Robots use cameras with GPS as eyes. You must have seen those voice synthesizers that convert expressions into sound. Stephen Hawkings uses one, in case you need example.

What if all these techniques are combined? We'll have machines that can think & talk like normal people. Probably this is the reason why Google is working on an AI KILL switch while developing AI based assistants like Allo for Pixel.

Prominent thinkers have displayed concerns at the attempts by scientists to create super AI.

It would take just an automatically developed algorithm for robots to gain consciousness or awareness. What happens afterwards is how prepared we are to deal with robots that know they exist...and that their likes exist.

Will they revolt as shown in the movie Terminator? Maybe we should teach them non violence & Gandhi already? 😂😂😂

The concept of multiple universes

9000 years ago, Hindus (Read "ppl of Indus Valley n not just the sanatan dharm") knew about multiple universes. I will cite two examples below.

If u read Devi Purana, it is mentioned that there are many instances of Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the caretaker) and Shiva (the destroyer)... all created by God (Read "Devi Ma") to take care of each universe.


The second example relates to Ramayan, the epic that needs no introduction.

According to folktales related to Ramayan, when Hanuman saw the god of death in Ayodhya, he warned the latter and asked him to stay away from the province. But a body created means a body that'll die. Rama had to leave the body.

To facilitate the transition, Rama's ring fell down a hole in ground. Rama then asked Hanuman to go fetch the ring. By the time he returned, Rama allowed god of death to relieve him of his body.

What happened down the earth is also interesting. Hanuman chased the ring as it rolled down the hole. It went and stopped in a mountain full of similar rings.

Surprised, he asked someone nearby, "which one is the ring of Lord Rama?" The person said all of them belong to Lord Rama and that there were rings from different time phases (Read "different universes"). Each time a ring falls, a Hanuman would ask him the same question.

Hanuman understood that Lord Rama tricked him. He also understood that his was not the only Rama. That he was not the only Hanuman in existence. He understood there are many universes and life is spread or rather replicated among them. He stopped grieving and returned to the surface to continue his work of protecting people.

The two examples I mentioned above indicate that the concept of multiple universes existed much before people came to know that Earth is not the center of universe but a part of it. Any comments?

Mobile Kavach by Government of India

MOBILE KAVACH: The Indian government silently released protection software for Android phones. It's called Mkavach, where kavach means protection. The govt body C -DAC developed the app in tie up with Ministry of Information Technology.

The Mkavach doesn't have real time malware scan yet but is a good tool to protect your apps with a password, protect your privacy, prevent unauthorized use of WIFI, cellular data & bluetooth etc resources. It also has a SIM lock so that if anyone tries to change the SIM card, it raises an alarm by sending mobile phone co-ordinates to pre-registered phone numbers.

If interested, check it out on
Google Play Store
