Several eminent individuals have seriously floated the notion of AI taking over the world. If this happened, I wonder what their notions of their creation would be.
Imagine a future of digital creations vastly more intelligent than humans, completing a lifetime of human thinking in milliseconds. Their history may tell of their creation by these apparently ‘dumb’ human beings which may not even exist in such an extended future, especially if the AI creatures had moved onto other worlds where DNA didn’t even exist.
Do you thing these digital creatures would be able to accept that they arose from the creations of something far dumber than themselves or do you think they would invent their own creation myths?
