Consciousness and Rebellion

Rebellion is all about freedom. But freedom is not possible if you are trapped in your own minds. We all are trapped in our own minds. The freedom from your minds can only be achieved by accessing consciousness. Because consciousness is free space. You can create anything there. Your mind is old, it is knowledge, it is conditioning. But consciousness is empty. All new things happen in  consciousness. All innovation and creativity happen in consciousness. It is the only intelligence. This intelligence is the only creator. Everything else is the mind. The mind is old, it is knowledge, how can it create?  Everything else is a trap, a trap of the mind. Rebellion can happen only when you access consciousness.


An innovator is a rebel because he dares to take a different path. He takes a path that no one has taken before. He dares to go against the society. He dares to go into the unknown seas.
 
A rebellion is nothing but moving into consciousness where you can create another road for yourself to walk on by making the knower within yourself evolve. (Please refer to my post – “The Voice, The Knower and the Actor)
 
But this rebellion will not happen when you are your mind. This will not happen till the time you do away with your thoughts, voices and imaginations. For this rebellion to happen only when you have accessed the universal intelligence and when the intelligence has started working through you.
 
For rebellion to happen, the knower within you has to evolve. It has to stand outside and see what is going on in your mind. It has to look into your desires, dreams ambitions and moreover your driving forces, the forces that drive you towards anything – your Driving Forces in life and inhibitions
 
For example – If you are a scientist you have to know what made you make the decision to be a scientist one day. What is the driving force behind every act that you do. You will see that every act of yours is based on something. You will see that every thing that is driving you is all based on your knowledge. You saw, you learnt and now you want to be. 
 
This is the pattern of your thought and this pattern has to be broken. This pattern is your mind and you are trapped inside your mind. Outside it is consciousness, free space, space for endless opportunities. Once you break this prevailing mind pattern you will have access to consciousness. 
 
And once this pattern is broken, you have to started slowly accessing your consciousness. You have started being spontaneous.
 
Knowing this driving force is very important. This driving force has given you a direction in life. But the problem is that the driving force is based on your conditioning, based on your inner voices. These driving forces are based on your knowledge. Now you cannot change lanes. 
 
You are so much in your mind that you do not believe that there is something else other than the mind. You do not believe that there can be another path. You have become “artificially Intelligent”. You believe in thinking and Imagining. What you do is just browse through the files in your memory. You have become programmed. As long as this programming prevails, you will never be able to be a rebel.
 
The moment you have started accessing your consciousness, rebellion within you happens and you start walking an unknown path. You will not be bothered by the society, you will not have fear or inhibitions. You will know that once you are having access to this “intelligence”, you can just move and everything will be taken care by this intelligence.
 
Initially you will not know that you have become a rebel. But you will experience that doing things that you never thought of doing becomes easy. There will be a an excitement and happiness in everything you do. You will be full of energy. You will feel that nothing in this world is impossible. When this happens, you will know that a rebellion has happened within yourself.
 
Only things is – Consciousness has to be accessed by breaking the prevailing mind patterns.
 

Robots Do Not Have Consciousness

It is very important to understand the capacity of human beings before we move more into the subject of Innovation. It is important to understand consciousness in order to understand innovation, because innovation happens when one has access to consciousness.

It is important to understand artificial intelligence because, artificial intelligence or robots do not have access to the supreme intelligence, the consciousness. 

Once you know what they do not have, you will  know what you have. Once you know what is the extra that you have, you will know what consciousness is. Because that extra is your consciousness. 

This extra differentiates you from robots or artificial intelligence. We are generally like robots, we are automatic, but the moment you know and experience what you have, you are no longer automatic like a robot, you become human.

Have you ever seen a robot innovating or creating? No. They will not ever create in may be 1000 years from now. Because they will never have access to consciousness. 

Consciousness and Artificial intelligence do no go together. A computer will never have a consciousness.
 
Let us see how:

For a computer to have a consciousness, consciousness has to be first defined. It has to be made into a “thing”, it has to be made into a program and then fed into the computer. 

Unless you define it, it cannot be fed into the computer. And Consciousness cannot be defined. Consciousness is the creative intelligence. How can it be defined. If it could be defined, we all would become God. Defining consciousness is absurd. So in short, computers or artificial intelligence cannot have a consciousness. Since they cannot have a conscience, they cannot have access to the supreme Intelligence, the Creative  force which makes everything happen. Artificial intelligence cannot create.
 
In my post “The voice, the knower and the Actor”, I have said that humans are divided into the voice – which  is the voice of the ego. The voice is the product of our conditioning, our imaginations. And most of the time we are one with the voice. We follow the voice without knowing that the voice exists. It is as if that the voice is the all that we have. The voice is a product of years of conditioning and it is so ingrained in us that we cannot do away with it. The voice is our mind. 
 
That, there is a knower, it is the one who knows. Knows what? It knows all about the voice and imaginations. But, generally, with all of us, the knower has not yet evolved. Which means we are not aware of the voices and imaginations. The knower is compared to the internal eyes and years. Since we live in our minds, we live with the voice, and take the voice as the only truth.
 
But the fact is that, we can know the voice as well as the imaginations. Once we  know the voices and imaginations, a revolution happens. To know means we are no longer with the voice. Which means we are no longer with our egos. Knowing the voice and Imaginations means, that we are out of it and can now have a choice, we can defy the voice or the imagination.
 
I spoke about the actor. The actor is our physical body, which does the work, which acts. Since, normally we are one with the voice, we blindly follow the voice. We say loudly what the voice says inside. In  normal case we do not have any option and go with the voice. But this is till the time our knower becomes active. When we know the voice, we can choose between what is required at the moment and what the voice says. Our actions will no longer be as per the voice which is old but as per requirement. We will be spontaneous. 
 
If I compare this with a computer, with the so called artificially intelligent computer, the voice or the imagination will be the program which makes the computer work. The actor will be the output device or in case of the robot, it will be the robot doing physical work. 
 
So, the program in the computer is compared to our Ego, the inner voice and the robot is compared to the actor. 
 
But in case of a robot, one things is missing – THE KNOWER. The internal eyes and years are missing in case of a robot. And this differentiates a human being from a robot. 
 
A robot can never be aware of its own program because he himself is the program. 
 
While a human being can be very much aware of his thoughts and imaginations, his desires, the driving force that makes him work. But a robot cannot. 
 
The robot can reproduce the code that is written in its memory, it can tell you what it is. BUT HE WILL HIMSELF NEVER KNOW ABOUT IT
 
This is because the robot cannot be aware. The knower is not available with the robot. There is no space available to the robot from where he can stand and watch himself.  This is because, he will invariably need a program to stand on. The moment he stands on a program, he will again not be able to know what the program is.
 
With a program available, he can write another program and jump from one program to another. After jumping to the second program, he will know what “HE USED TO BE” before the jump. BUT HE WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT HE IS. 
 
But humans can very well know what he is. The moment he becomes aware of his thought patterns, the thoughts that repeatedly come, his imaginations, his driving force, his desires and dreams, he will know who he is. But the robot can never. THERE IS NO SPACE AVAILABLE FOR THE ROBOT TO STAND AND WATCH HIS OWN PROGRAM, HE CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT A PROGRAM.
 
Because of the simple reason that the robot does not exist without the program. A human can exist without the ego. The moment a human does away with his ego, he becomes enlightened. He becomes a Buddha. Because humans have access to the supreme Intelligence, The only one intelligence. But a robot can never have access to the supreme intelligence.
 
Robots do not have consciousness. The access to this consciousness gives rise to Rebellion. But robots are not capable of a rebellion because they do not have consciousness. No matter how much you argue, robots will always remain slaves. 
 
There are reasons for building robots. The reasons are deep embedded in the human mind. The following quote of mine will make things clear:
 
“The very fact that we have started building “obedient” and so called “Artificially” intelligent robots proves that human beings cannot be made slaves. So we take the artificial way. Now we want artificial slaves. What a joke!
 
This also proves our tendency to dominate and our inability to accept humans as they are. 
The invention of robots also proves the fact that we want servants, slaves and NOT INDIVIDUALS. This also proves that we always want to be superior and want people would not defy us…we all want to be emperors.
The need for slaves, the need for people to obey us, be faithful to us has given rise to artificially intelligent robots”
