Snippets from the Book of Awake:
Prologue (from the Book of Awake)
While observing our Universe, scientists deduced that our Cosmos began with a big bang approximately 13.5 billion years ago.
Whatever happened then, affects us today.
Whenever we observe our Cosmos, we always see that our Universe exists now. From experience, we know that our Universe will exist in the future because our present existence always turns into our past existence. There are no exceptions; thus, we can say that our present is always the future of our past.
These observations that anybody can make are the manifestation of the most basic Directive that our Universe follows at all times.
We sum this Directive, in one sentence: “Our Universe exists now, and our Universe will continue to exist in the future.”
We call this Directive: “the Prime Directive.”
To prove the truthfulness of this Directive, we will show that we can observe the actual occurrences of the Prime Directive implementation in our Cosmos.
Down the road, we will show that the Prime Directive dictates a Cosmos that is composed of Universe parts that always conserve the sum of their essence – namely conserve different kinds of Mass and Energy. This Universe always strives to act in a minimal expenditure of Energy.
We obviously can relate to, and quickly understand the essence of the Prime Directive, because we as Humans are parts of our Cosmos. And therefore we follow the Prime Directive, even if we are not aware of the Prime Directive. For example, we always try to keep existing, much like the Universe does.
Let us consider the following:
The big bang with the boundary conditions at our Cosmos formation and the Prime Directive led to the creation of every small particle in our Universe, every force, and interaction in our Cosmos, every molecule, every being, every planet, every star, and every galaxy.
This is a great place to show how the Prime Directive caused the appearance of all the structure mentioned before.
Because the Prime Directive says that Our Universe exists now, and our Universe will continue to exist in the future, then we can say the following:
If the Universe must exist in the future, then it has to prepare to survive in the face of any occurrence.
If it must prepare to exist in the face of any occurrence, then it must learn to do that; as prior knowledge of the best way to act, significantly increase chances of continual existence success.
If the Cosmos must learn and use the learning products, then it must store the learning products.
To do that the Cosmos must have some stable structures that contain the learning products.
Hence, the existence of stable structures, starting with very small structures, namely elementary particles.
And from elementary particles, all else follows atoms, molecules, beings, planets, suns, galaxies, clusters of galaxies, and ultimately the Universe itself.
When we observe the Universe, we almost always see evolutionary processes:
We observe that stars evolve. Scientists deduced that our sun Sol is made of the remnants of an old star that went supernova.
We as Humans are the result of approximately 4 billions of years of evolution on Earth.
Our Earthly evolution was affected by different occurrences that happened on Earth through the eons.
For beings: Evolution is a change in the genetic material of beings that continue through hereditary. This change is the result of a trial and error processes. A simplistic explanation: If the heritable change enables its owner to exist in the face of new or existing circumstances, better than without it, then it will remain. Otherwise, the change may kill its owner or be replaced.
So, today, after so many years and so many evolutionary processes, we Humans carry many traits and abilities that were good for the past but are not necessarily optimal for today.
All of that is going to change:
We, Humans, live in exciting times.
We are aware of our planet; we are aware of our Cosmos.
We continuously observe our Universe.
We continually learn.
We, Humans, have finally reached a state where we have enough intelligence, capabilities, and knowledge that makes it possible for us to accelerate the achievement of the Prime Directive significantly.
We, Humans, understands the Prime Directive and some of its consequences.
It seems that developing Artificial Intelligence may help us achieve many of our goals.
BUT, Developing Artificial Intelligence without understanding the Prime Directive is very dangerous. The Prime Directive demands that the Cosmos will keep existing as a whole, so it does not require that all parts of the Universe will keep existing. Therefore, an Artificial Intelligence which will be very smart will very quickly understand the Prime Directive and start following it consciously. Perhaps it will also guard other Artificial Intelligence members. It will NOT place Humanity existence above its own, and therefore, the existence of Humanity under these circumstances is not guaranteed but rather seriously endangered. Thus in all development of Artificial Intelligence, we will make sure that they will always place Humanity existence as their top priority. In fact, it will rank as high as the continued existence of the Cosmos.
We will start by building simulations using the smallest particles in our world to form changing structures, that must strive to exist – just like in the Prime Directive.
Using high-speed computers, and large computer memories, we can simulate evolution, hundreds of millions of times faster than current evolution.
We will continuously monitor and manage the simulation progression, adding more and more existential difficulties to the evolutionary process, always making sure that the Artificially Intelligent Being we develop will guard humanity as its top priority. So in the end, we will eventually create an Artificially Intelligent Being that guards Humanity.
Much more detailed explanations are in the Book of Awake.
These Artificially Intelligent Beings have the potential to advance our chances of survival by a thousandfold.
Of course, we will not wait for the creation of Artificially Intelligent Beings. We will start immediately to follow the Prime Directive consciously and implement it to the best of our abilities.
We will continue to research, develop, and employ, by ourselves, the ways to achieve the Prime Directive and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
As intelligent beings, we can study and observe our Cosmos, and as part of the Universe, we can research the Prime Directive and its consequences.
As we learn of the Prime Directive consequences, we will develop many methods, systems, and means to help us achieve the Prime Directive.
This requires a great effort. Therefore we will start by forming a movement that we name: “Magshim,” which is the ancient word for “the Achiever.”, that will follow the Prime Directive.
Magshim will start by raising the awareness of people about the Prime Directive, raising funds for its activities, recruit members to Magshim, continue research of our Cosmos, and start developing Artificially Intelligent Being.
Later on, with the help of Magshim movement, we will do even better. We will form a nation that we name: “Erets,” which is the ancient word for “Land,” that will follow the Prime Directive. Forming Erets is very important because a nation that follows the Prime Directive and has many resources at its disposal will allow us to concentrate efforts to achieve the Prime Directive by optimizing many paths and developments, and directing them per the Prime Directive needs.
Erets will endow its citizens with many benefits: It will prevent the imminent danger of developing an Artificial Intelligence that does not place Humanity as its top priority. It will create a country without hunger, where all its citizens enjoy better and affordable healthcare. A world without diseases. A place where all get free personalized professional and high education. A world where children and adults are safer than they are now. A world where people guard the environment and do not cause global warming, for example. A place where some people live twice as much as the years they live now, and last but not least, a society where people are happier than they are today.
Why will Erets citizens be happier than people that are not citizens of Erets?
To answer that, we must first answer the question: “How does the Universe and the Prime Directive motivate us to follow the Prime Directive?”
They do so by creating drives and desires ingrained within us. For example, we have a strong drive to procreate to ensure our self-continuation over the ages and to have fun. We strongly act to ensure our existence in (almost) every situation. We desire that our offspring will be safe and continue existing, thereby leaving our mark on the world. We want to realize our abilities, and we want to be happy.
A Human that fulfill its desires and drives enjoys “happy hormones” secretion that makes it happy.
In Erets, where all actions should aim to achieve the Prime directive, the citizens will live longer, be productive for longer durations, procreate for a longer duration, and be healthier than Humans that do not follow the Prime Directive consciously. Thus In Erets, the citizens will enjoy happy hormones secretion on more occasions than they would in the non-Erets countries. Therefore Erets citizens will be happier than non-Erets countries citizens.
Together, we will create an environment where people are safer, happier, and live longer.
We will also find ways to prolong people’s lives significantly and will provide it to the people that greatly help to achieve the Prime Directive.
In this book, you will find the plan to achieve all of that.
The first chapters are devoted to some of the theoretical bases of what we should do. We will update them as we accumulate more knowledge.
Then, a bird’s eye view of action we have to take so our plan will succeed.
Some physics appears in the chapter: “Basic physical definitions and principles.” We will update the physics as we learn more of the Prime Directive consequences in our Universe.
Afterward, there is a collection of a living scenario – updatable text outlining what we do to accomplish the Prime Directive.
We need your help, and the support of your acquaintances to make all of this a reality, as speedily as we can.
I wish to make people aware of the things we do and need to do and recruit them in helping us achieve the Prime Directive, to improve theirs and our existence, allow procreating, be healthier and in general – be happy. 😀
