Why the Emancipation of Geniuses is one of the main goals of the Universe
The Universe started as concentrated energy and after expanding for many many years, it created our planet Earth. On this planet it gave rise to life and natural intelligence. One of the crowning achievements of the universe on this planet is the Homo-Sapien species.
The Homo-Sapien species is so advanced in intelligence that it can observe and try to understand the universe. It can observe and try to understand itself. So in a sense the universe created consciousness that can try to understand itself and its creation source.
The evolution of the Homo-sapien brain through mutants that we sometimes recognize or label as Geniuses is a continuous process in this progression of natural intelligence.
People like Pythagoras, Socrates, DaVinci, Galileo, Newton, Goethe, Darwin, Nietzsche, Einstein, etc are neurological mutants that occur rarely and are evolution’s creations of more advanced intelligence and information processing.
These mutants are byproducts of different combinations and accumulations of naturally occurring, heritable mutations that are distributed throughout society.
There is a trend to call these mutations Neuro-diversities.
These mutants are the next level of intelligence that the universe is creating to expand the scope of natural intelligence. These mutants occur rarely and expand our understanding of the universe.
Some of them are one in a billion, some of them are one in 100 million.
But one of the ironic byproducts is that the standard version of intelligence, that is in more abundance, tries to constrain and fight this new version of intelligence, thereby slowing down this evolutionary progress of intelligence.
This slows down the universe’s ability to expand this new intelligence and to understand itself.
Early in human history these mutants were treated more harshly — they were burned, crucified, stoned and harmed in many ways.
It would be ironic if the first guy that created fire was later intentionally burned to death. This is just a dark joke.
Although today the treatment of these mutants is not as harsh, many of them still face a lot of friction, and some of the biggest Geniuses still die very young.
Raphael, Mozart, Abovian, Ramanujan, Turing are some geniuses that died young.
Many others face so much harm or pushback that they give up on society.
At the same time these mutants are constrained in their identity and thereby their development is impeded.
We say that everyone is the same and that these mutants don’t exist. Therefore these mutants have to go through life hiding their identity and pretending they are like others. They also have to operate in structures that are made for the standard version of intelligence and are poorly fitting for them.
Luckily, the Homo-Sapien species, unlike many other animals on this planet, is conscious of itself, and can understand itself and improve its behavior.
This would not be possible for lions, monkeys or eagles.
A logical next step for the species would be to understand that it is getting in the way of the universe’s progression and spread of intelligence by constraining or harming the newest creations.
When the general intelligence level within a species arrives at this conclusion, the collective will Emancipate the Geniuses and set them free.
At that point the universe will have created intelligence that does not get in the way of progression and spread of its newest creations, and hence the progression of intelligence will accelerate.
This point I call natural singularity.
At that point human life on the planet earth will improve significantly.
Imagine having 10 Elon Musks, 10 Steve Jobs, 10 Alan Turings
Many more problems will be solved.
If we consider that the progression of Artificial Intelligence could reach Ray Kurzweil’s singularity levels, it is still questionable how well AI can ever replicate humans in creativity, emotions, meaning, “thinking outside the box”, pun intended.
So it is better for natural intelligence to also keep evolving.
This will accelerate the evolution and spread of more advanced natural intelligence, and eventually the universe will be able to better understand and control itself. Much better control itself.
Can it ever avoid heat death? Let’s see. It is a race.
Hence the Emancipation of Geniuses is one of the main goals of the Universe.
