The mind cannot see past itself until somebody show’s you what you cannot yet see for yourself and even then it is not sufficient to be superficial as the way of the “new” in you needs to be embedded into your mind and body so it becomes part of you, until you see it totally.
The limitations of the mind is that it cannot see past itself. The human entity is experiential in nature. It accumulates and it stores and it becomes it and it gets condition by all the lies that the mind allows it to make up. It is a multiview system and makes up a 1000 lies from one single observation and then it chooses one of the lies to be its Truth but it is a lie as it was made up and not a fact, like that first observation was a fact. It would have been sufficient to live with that first observation. Everything it makes up is a lie in you and you create a personality with these lies.
The limitation of the mind is that it can only do itself. It looks into its repository of the past and makes things out of this and so you get this frontline of movement of society that is slow and it moves forward at a snail’s pace with no giant leaps into the future.
So I was fascinated to see this interview where Brian Cox and Eric Schmidt of google discuss the past, present and future of artificial intelligence. There is a section here that says what it cannot do: AI cannot think for itself, but only by the instructions it is given. Just like us humans, we can only think from our past – or it seems that is the case and possibly we do not recognise the “new” in us and just disregard those pop-ups. Eric Schmidt explains it as that Genius move “it was just came out” – he means a pop-up in your mind.
