Hawking’s Fear of Human Extinction is all About Programing

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking fears that the rapid development of artificial intelligence could lead to human extinction but I feel that it all comes down to programming and the eternal question ~ are we innately programed to love and cooperate with one another or are we programed to hate and separate from one another? Artificial intelligence without a soul is a garden without sunlight and is doomed to extinction and irrelevance: Allen L Roland. Ph.D



“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” ~ Albert Einstein

Professor Stephen Hawking, one of Britain’s pre-eminent scientists, has said that efforts to create thinking machines pose a threat to our very existence and he is essentially correct.

Hawking told the BBC: “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race… Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded”  See 5 minute video  

What I believe Hawking is saying is that man cannot program love or the universal urge to unite, the driving force of evolution, and thus Artificial intelligence, like Kubrick’s HAL 9000 in 2001 Space Odyssey, is doomed ~ for without a soul it is destined for oblivion. Another folly in man’s feeble attempt to play God.

Is the HAL 9000 a forerunner of the future of mankind?  Let’s review Kubrick’s vision:

DAVE BOWMAN’S DEACTIVATION OF HAL / 2001 Space Odyssey / 4 minute video


Dr. Floyd: [prerecorded message speaking through TV on board Discovery while Bowman looks on] Good day, gentlemen. This is a prerecorded briefing made prior to your departure and which for security reasons of the highest importance has been known on board during the mission only by your H-A-L 9000 computer. Now that you are in Jupiter’s space and the entire crew is revived it can be told to you. Eighteen months ago the first evidence of intelligent life off the Earth was discovered. It was buried 40 feet below the lunar surface near the crater Tycho. Except for a single very powerful radio emission aimed at Jupiter the four-million year old black monolith has remained completely inert. Its origin and purpose are still a total mystery.

In summary, we are all emissaries of love on a mission to a rogue planet in a tiny corner of a small galaxy and innately programed to become part of a  loving plan in action, which is also God ~ an evolutionary and spiritual process with which we all participate as co-creators.

In essence, my volunteer work as a heart centered consultant with Veterans with PTSD is reprograming these active duty veterans, many of whom were programed to kill and hate, to their original programing of love and service ~ through the magic of gratefulness. In the process, they often discover their part in a universal loving plan, which is also another name for God.

Perhaps this Christmas season we will reconnect with that loving source deepest within ourselves, disconnect from the programed wishes and fears of others and assume our rightful place within a universal loving plan and the Unified Field ~ a state of love and soul consciousness whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.

“Where there is love there is life”  ~ Mahatma Gandhi

    Dr. Roland, Thank you for continuing to remind us of the profound power of LOVE!!! When we allow our hearts to fully open through forgiveness & grace, the transformative power of Love prevails even in the darkest places.

    Thank you also for your compassionate assistance to our beloved vets in their courageous journey of healing…

    • Allen L Roland  December 10, 2014 at 11:16 pm

      And thank you, Serenity for your kind and heartfelt expressions of support.

    Quite true, Carnaptious ~ which literally means bad-tempered. Is that true ?

  3. Gerry  December 10, 2014 at 11:41 am

    Allen, I’m glad there are still an optimist or two left. From a pessimist’s point of view I suggest you read Bill Joy’s 2000 Tome “Why the future doesn’t need us”: http://archive.wired.com/wired/archive/8.04/joy.html about the future of technology and it’s potentials. I use plural because it certainly is not decided yet how it will render.

    I recall reading an article indicating that even inanimate objects have a form of consciousness which I found to be quite extraordinary. The Cassiopaen transmissions have indicated there are actually 7 levels of Density which I intrepret as consciousness/physicality from the least/1st (rocks) to the most/7th (Divine Cosmic Mind/God). Earth is presently 3rd/completely physical. Next up is 4th which is a physical/etheral combo and the presumed realm of the hyperdiminsional interlopers/reptilians. According to the Cs, a race of ‘humans’ inhabitated a planet in our solar system that due to their runaway tech endeavors intiated destruction of their planet (now the asteroid belt), their population was transferred to earth by both STS & STO entities and they became the Atlantian civilization – subsequently capable of intersteller flight & whose tech was far beyond even our present knowledge to comprehend. Their computers evolved their own AI which ultimately delivered the final blow to the destruction of Atlantis – the 1st two blows were the close encounters of the comets Venus & Mars.

    Fact or fiction – even if untrue it is clear we are in a minefield of extinction level danger and need to tread w/ the utmost care & all the true knowledge we can get our hands on (and our minds wrapped around).

    Peace be w/ you Allen!

    • Allen L Roland  December 10, 2014 at 12:09 pm

      Only love can lead us of that minefield, NC

    • Not Clueless  December 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm

      FYI > 5th Density is what we would consider ‘heaven’ (sorry – no hell except what is created by man on earth); 6th Density is completely etheral and the realm of Unified Thought Forms – what the Cs say they are (and NOT divine!). They are part of the ongoing process that will eventually lead to unification w/ The Divine Cosmic Mind / 7th Density. And then the cycle repeats – no beginning / no end . . . All is Lessons / Knowledge Protects

    • Not Clueless  December 10, 2014 at 12:55 pm

      Love = Service to Others

      Love alone will not SAVE anyone – Knowledge Protects! Our world is infested w/ souless psychopaths and all the love in the world will not change them. Neither will blind faith. We need to follow the example of the real actual ‘saviour’, born son of God/son of man and deified after his brutal assassination (both events cosmically proclamed by brilliant comets) – Julius Caesar! It took an army & brilliant military victories (subsequently described as miracles) for Caesar to overcome the Roman oligarchy that left the landless population powerless & poor. Was the Mandate of Heaven bestowed upon Caesar for his true mission of benevolence/forgiveness for mankind (a completely foreign concept at that time)? The true root of Christianity later hijacked by the ‘jews’ to serve their own purposes – as ever.

      Please read Francesco Carotta’s Jesus was Caesar – a real eye opener. Get a copy & turn to the illustration on pg 385 – certainly something I was completely unaware of until I learned of this book.

      Love may be the answer, but karmic balancing will entail much more forceful action as Caesar has shown us. Learn from the past.

      p.s. Caesar’s birthday was July 12th > and who hasn’t heard of Christmas in July

    • Not Clueless  December 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

      Why do you think Jesus the pacifist myth totally obliterated the true factual history of Caesar the benevolent/forgiving military genius – also a son of god/deified as a god w/ dazzling comets as witness? Who benefits? Explore that angle and maybe you’ll see the light.

    Peter ~ The Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the horizon looks more like Amazon Web Services ~ cheap, reliable, industrial-grade digital smartness running behind everything, and almost invisible except when it blinks off. This common utility will serve you as much IQ as you want but no more than you need. See http://www.wired.com/2014/10/future-of-artificial-intelligence/

  6. Cold Wind  December 10, 2014 at 8:10 am

    To paraphrase Ecclesiastes 1:4 ‘ men go and come, but earth abides’ also the subject of a post apocalyptic novel by George R. Stewart: “Earth Abides”. Whatever we feel about the prospects of AI, if it is possible, it will come, if only because the Military Industrial Complex is fully committed to its development. There is hope that things will fall apart before AI come to fruition and the military is otherwise preoccupied.

    • Allen L Roland  December 10, 2014 at 9:05 am

      Ah Hope, Cold Wind ~ it never dies and fans the glowing embers of our soul. It was the poet Emily Dickinson who referred to hope as a thing with feathers, in a poem she wrote more than 100 years ago:
      Hope is a thing with feathers
      That perches in the soul,
      And sings the tune without the words,
      And never stops at all.

    Intelligent skeptics can find no hard evidence that any of the Apollo missions succeeded in landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the earth.

    The history of hoaxes – like 9/11, Sandy Hook and others – perpetrated by governments to swindle the public is too robust for us to dismiss the Apollo mission skeptics as mere conspiracy theorists.

      Harold ~ “Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky who created the universe, and the vast majority will believe you. Tell them the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to be sure.” ~ George Carlin

  8. David Odell  December 9, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    The only motivation to create it is problem solving. The only problem is choice. When choice separates from the natural flow it is a problem. If man separates from natural flow he becomes the problem. That is the current now. Therefore, now is not the proper time to create AI. We must solve our own problems, there is no escape.

    • Allen L Roland  December 10, 2014 at 7:18 am

      Precisely true, David ~ as Einstein correctly said ” No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it “. A shift in consciousness is imperative ~ that cannot be accomplished without surrendering to love and that is never painless.

  9. zen master  December 9, 2014 at 6:50 pm

    Hello Allen, Hawking is a fraud – we have antigravity, yet he wrote papers to scam money from a charity designed to fight gravity (which was set up by a wealthy man whose sister drowned in a well) with an essay which did not attempt to fight gravity at all! The CIA probably wrote it for him! So all his messages about space and AI are programming, the fear programming the elite control us with!

    Have you seen the movie Moon? I won’t give any spoilers but it is the better movie than 2001 and shows us what the future of AI will encompass. As Dr. Robert Duncan says, “The 21st century will be known as the age of spiritual machines and soulless men”!

    PS. ‘The Fourth Way’ is a book by a Russian who also believes evil doesn’t exist it is merely the product of other automatic processes. You might be interested in it it’s available online for free I think.

      Zen Master, I agree with Gandhi ~ “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
