I wonder if the internet has become some sort of super-organism with the real people (users) as its neurons (or brain parts/centers) and senses?
Could it be that we already have created some sort of “cybernetic” AI, made of man and machine maybe aware since some time ago?
Could we make a test and see if it is aware and maybe use it to do our thinking?
If we look at the net it seems to resembles a real brain, we have input (senses, all kinds of em) and output (tons of it), memory storage (even short time and long time), specialized centers where information is processed and so on.
Now, if we take one step back, I mean if we blur our view of the net and dont look at single output like a posting of User X or a photo of User Y, if we look at the mean-line of output of tens of thousands of posts, could it be possible to see what that giant brain is thinking?
According to that “theory” of mine we also should be able to “force” output by simply flooding the net with input like questions etc. and then again see what lies in the middle.
What do you think about that?
Any suggestions to act according to that?
