Mind-reading AI may spell end to humanity as we know it, but not because it will enslave us – Zizek

RAEL’S COMMENT: Very stupid analysis, especially the conclusion: “If we do not have enough things to do, even if we will feel happy just sitting, watching films and drinking, it will be a very stupid existence. It will soon get dire.” … This journalist doesn’t even imagine a world without money and work where people can enjoy doing nothing and yes play and watch movies but also meditate, dance, sing, etc. It’s what people do in monasteries. For him people without a stupid work have a “very stupid existence”. No room for meditation and spiritual life in his mind. Working 12h a day just for money, this is the really stupid existence.
 

Technologies linking human consciousness to any sort of a cloud computing service could not just open the way for totalitarian mind control, but destroy the very essence of human relations, philosopher Slavoj Zizek says.

Scientists say that traveling makes us much happier than any material wealth

RAEL’S COMMENT: Not true! It’s only true for people who live in past (the vast majority of human beings) and do not enjoy the NOW. Travels create memories and memories are 100% past. This article also said that after a while we get use to things and they don’t make us happy anymore. But if you use your supraconsciousness the NOW is always new… and it doesn’t require any thing or travel. It doesn’t require anything coming from outside. In meditation you can close your eyes and feel happiness, the real one, the one from inside. Everything else is distraction, illusion and tourism. Tourism is the absolute opposite of supraconsciousness.
Why do many people go shopping the minute they have money in their wallets? Material wealth brings you happiness, albeit temporarily. Only a few days after a new purchase, the thrill, pleasure, and enjoyment you felt begins to fade.

‘Abuse & madness’: Russian priest suspended after disturbing child baptism VIDEO provokes outcry

RAEL’S COMMENT: Now imagine if the Raelians (or any religious minority) were doing that to babies (or forced circumcision), imagine the reaction in the medias and politicians making laws to stop dangerous “cults”, but as it is done by dominant large religions then nothing is done. That has to change! No religion should be imposed to babies or even children! I remind everybody that to become Raelian you must be at least 15 years old and pass a short examination proving that it s your choice and that it is not your parents forcing you, and that the Messages recommend teaching children all religions (including atheism) and letting them chose if they wish to embrace one when they reach the age of 15.
 

A Russian Orthodox priest sparked outrage on social media after a mother claimed he bruised and nearly drowned her toddler during an intense ‘exorcism-like’ baptism ceremony.
