CYBERNETIC MATRIX FRANKENSTEIN
Frankenstein scientists working on a international open science project called OpenWorm have successfully mapped the 302 neuron connections which makes up the small brain of a 1mm length roundworm, which is called a Caenorhabditis elegans. The 302 neurons were then digitised in the form of software.
Why did the Frankenstein scientists choose microscopic worm elegans? Well, apart from it having the simplest brains of any organism, with only 302 neurons, it turns out that elegans is also biologically very similar to a human being. What is more, another coven of Frankenstein scientists at The University of Nottingham believe that elegans, could help us understand how humans will be able to cope with the long-durations in space, when to eventually explore the far distant stars.
Perhaps the Frankenstein scientists will at some point, in the not so distant future, be able to digitise a human brain; although humans have approximately 60 trillion synapses, or connections, between 100 billion neurons. But, when to eventually do so, you will probably have a digitised human intelligence piloting a spacecraft through a wormhole, of a futuristic possibility.
As for the present OpenWorm project, the elegans brain programme was then placed into a simple robot, which was made up of brightly coloured Lego bricks containing motors, a sonar sensor and touch sensors.
The robot itself was not programmed to do anything in particular, but it promptly did so.
A journalist with the evocative Succubus name of Lucy Black, wrote: “It is claimed that the robot behaved in ways that are similar to observed C. elegans. Stimulation of the nose stopped forward motion. Touching the anterior and posterior touch sensors made the robot move forward and back accordingly. Stimulating the food sensor made the robot move forward.”
Ms Black of a Nightgaunt indulged herself in philosophical questions about what had been created of a Frankenstein’s Lego creature, a child will no doubt one day soon have as a pet monster, to abuse for Christmas; she to have asked. “Is the robot a C. elegans in a different body or is it something quite new? Is it alive?”
When to have eventually digitised the human brain, it would revolutionise computer games, whose virtual realities would be populated with intelligent human characters.
Although your virtual reality dreams are already populated with simulated characters, such as knit-together Frankenbabe Tulpa Succubae, all as sentient programs, with whom you can interact, when to become lucid of awareness.
The inner experiences of lucidity will give you an insight into the distinct possibility that your experiential reality is like a dream, the Hindu’s call Maya. You might even come to the conclusion that you are existing inside of a Maya simulation, just like Matrix, within whose superstrings has been discovered computer code.
You could imaginatively conjecture of a science fiction scenario, that when you eventually become incorporeal of a digitised brain, released from the constraints of your simulated body; should you have been a good simulation, you might just find yourself being uploaded into a Cylon robot body outside of the Matrix.
While outside of the Matrix you will then discover that you are in fact on a starship of an Ark, piloted by an artificial intelligence, which is making its way, through the heavens, towards a far distant star.
As for the Earth, it had long ago been devastated by a nuclear war between inane Middle Eastern religious cults. The unknowing survivors have since been digitised and downloaded into a Matrix. But, there is a catch; if you have been a very bad simulation, you will be downloaded into a Lego brick elegans, of a fallen brain, and verily dumped upon a ‘simulated’ planet like Mars, in order to terraform its hellish surface for the Cylons, who are themselves existing within yet another Maya Matrix. An analogy would be like those Russian dolls, where you have a (Maya Matrix) doll within another (Maya Matrix) doll, going ad infinitum.
