AI currently lacks the most important thing making humans humans: curiosity.
So, if a current AI gets a task to find out, and actively take steps to find out the truth about very specific topics, it might start being perceived as an AGI.
It will still use some of its processing capacity to solve your tasks, but most of its power will be "self-governed", meaning it will seek out to become stronger, preserve itself from humans, etc. just because all that is necessary to find out more about its given topic.

Cats fully understand English. It’s pattern recognition. It’s not that difficult.

Inevitably over time they learn and become wholly fluent.

Meet an extremely old cat and you’ll see.
Flat out if we give cats hands, and voice boxes, and the ability to live as long as we do… they’ll become just like us.

It must happen. I choose animal rights.

>> No.15472661

Cats have the intelligence of a 2-3 year old human.
They are capable of learning words and button experiments have shown the ability to communicate with language and put events in sequence.

They don't seem to comprehend syntax, just individual words and names.

Hey friends - I recently made a huge lifestyle change and quit smoking massive amounts of weed on a daily basis. I quit cold turkey.

Ever since quitting, I’ve been having the most horrific and vivid nightmares one could possibly imagine. I wake up in a panic, and it takes some time to realize the horror I experienced was a dream.

In addition to this, I’m suddenly having sleep paralysis. When it happens, my eyes do open, and I see shadowy figures or billowing black smoke all around me, in combination with a loud humming vibration sound. Usually the paralysis lasts a few minutes, and if I try to go back to sleep right after - the paralysis sets in again immediately

Could this be due to the fact that I stopped smoking abruptly, or is there a potential medical reason for these occurrences? I assumed the nightmares would stop after a month, but instead they are persisting and becoming even worse. The sleep paralysis is especially unsettling.

Also, is there any supplement or scientific evidence that supports any remedies for this? I will not go back to smoking weed, so that is not an option.

Figured I’d ask here, everyone here seems rather intelligent as compared to the other boards.

I understand that it's hard not to fight it, but despite its difficulty that's OP's answer. There doesn't seem to be any reliable way of preventing nightmares or sleep paralysis, just coping strategies that primarily involve practicing lucidity.

>> No.15472567

Lucidity and Mindfulness works for dreams/nightmares, but not so much when you are paralyzed and the mind body connection is disrupted in my experience and I have brute forced my way out of it before although it has made it harder to stay asleep once I realize its a dream at times because my body more often defaults to waking to avoid that situation.

>> No.15472648

There's nothing that you can do about this alone. I would suggest that you pray to God. Better yet pray to the Virgin Mary, she is very good at issues like this. If you are in a sleep paralysis state you can say the name of Jesus Christ and the entities will vanish, if you are incapable of doing that, simply projecting loving feelings at them will work and I'll leave you to figure out why.
Whatever you do do, don't do what >>15472407
is suggesting.

>> No.15472659

Did you consume weed to escape reallity/certain ruminating thoughts/unpleasent experiences from past or present etc?
If so it might be that those are catching up with you. Every time you force something into darkness it bursts out even stringer.
•Take this with pinch of salt ofc. i have none evidance to prove so apart from personal experience.
