There's a dimension to the artificial intelligence debate that seldom gets mentioned: mind control. Assuming that artificial intelligence is possible, and assuming that machines, like Robert Heinlein's "Mike" computer in his celebrated sci-fi novel The Moon is a Harsh Mistress "wakes up", would mind control and mind manipulation techniques work on such an entity? I do not know the answer to that question, but I suppose on the basis of the following article shared by V.T. that it might be possible. At the minimum, what the article does state is that it is possible according to recent studies to plant malware inside an AI's programming:

Hiding malware inside AI neural networks

The key paragraphs here, for our high octane speculation purposes, are the following:

Neural networks, by their very nature, can be invaded by foreign agents. All such agents have to do is mimic the structure of the in much the same way memories are added in the human brain. The researchers found that they were able to do just that by embedding malware into the behind an AI system called AlexNet—despite it being rather hefty, taking up 36.9 MiB of memory space on the hardware running the AI system. To add the code into the neural network, the researchers chose what they believed would be the best layer for injection. They also added it to a model that had been trained already but noted hackers might prefer to attack an untrained network because it would likely have less of an impact on the overall network.

The researchers found that not only did standard antivirus software fail to find the malware, but the AI system performance was almost the same after being infected. Thus, the infection could have gone undetected if covertly executed.

The researchers note that simply adding malware to the neural network would not cause harm—whoever slipped the code into the system would still have to find a way to execute that code. They also note that now that it is known that hackers can inject into AI neural networks, can be updated to look for it.

So how might this work in the case of an AI program on a computer like Heinlein's "Mike"? Assume a way was found to execute a bit of malware slipped into an AI. Assume also that one of the functions of that malware was to disable an anti-virus program, or even to have that program create viruses rather than remove them. Think of it as the AI version of - oh, let's say - an mRNA quackcine that creates AI "spike proteins" which multiply and replicate with each running of the anti-virus program. Think of it also as the AI version of post-hypnotic suggestion of a human subject, a kind of program that runs on the occurrence of a certain "trigger" - a word or sound or phrase - to execute certain actions, which the subject is then programmed to forget.

Now imagine that your AI, per an insane suggestion once made by Cold Warriors (and even, if my memory serves me correctly, suggested once by William F. Buckley, Jr.) is in charge of running your strategic nuclear arsenal, and programmed to "launch on warning." One might, by malware, be able to program all sorts of "launches." Imagine your AI is in charge of - per the insane suggestions and actual practice of many others - executing stock, bond, or commodities markets trades, and imagine what a bit of creative malware might do: "If x occurs, then execute y trade," or "if the Fed announces a rate hike of one tenth of a basis point, then sell all US Treasuries at 90% discount," and so on.

One could imagine all sorts of similar chaotic scenarios, and now that the malware cat has been let out of the AI bag, perhaps we should reconsider whether or not AI is such a good idea after all. Of course, humans will go ahead and pursue the AI panacea anyway, regardless of warnings. It will take a few such actual nightmare scenarios to wake people up...

See you on the flip side...

    IMO….the Top Man in understanding A.I. is CYRUS A. PARSA.

    Is evolution ever wrong?

  3. kalamona on September 9, 2021 at 6:58 am

    i would liken malware in AI
    to false teachings (strings) about reality
    or something like that. its quite confusing. like we all see
    as grown up on gibson, it seems to me that almost any (major) company could have a bad batch of them roaming through the web. and institutions have some as well, i think, possibly, or maybe for sure. and all the other (same) parties…
    and its not about any laughs that all realities are converging into human experience. and u have to choose

    • Loxie Lou Davie on September 10, 2021 at 10:51 am

      Dear Kalamona….You really struck a chord when you said “all realities are converging into human experience”??? I’m not quite sure what you meant by that… you know something the rest of us do not?!!

      I do think at this point in time we ARE being forced to “choose”, but the majority of people do not even realize there IS a choice as they have been so programmed to Obey The Authorities!!

      You might find Billy Carso’s “Compendium of The Emerald Tablets” of interest!!(4biddenknowledge)
      Thoth tells us of his own Journey through Space & Time & explains how we can do the same!!

      • kalamona on September 10, 2021 at 3:06 pm

        forced to choose not to choose
        nor neither
        oh man. just trying to make a soup
        and as an answer unto your question, i dont really see any other perfect reality just that some are so hellbent to destroy…
        space and consciousness is one and the same
        all wrapped up in a total perfection
        ‘words, dont come easy, to me, how can i find a way…’ :-)))
        me know thoth know me

    But that is the question of the Manga Anime “The Ghost In The Machine” or what theologians call the soul. But that would mean an AI would have free will the ability to choose what to do and understand the consequences of its actions and thoughts.

    • marcos toledo on September 8, 2021 at 7:27 pm

      Correction “The Ghost In The Shell”

    • kalamona on September 9, 2021 at 7:07 am

      liked that one. nice anime.

    Off Topic – Anyone else thoroughly peeved at Mad Mallory the guy who helps Dr Farrell back load his News/Views onto Bitchute. I subscribed and set notifications and now my email inbox is flooded with Mad Mallory’s videos NOT Dr. Farrells. The sheer volume of videos of his own that he has backloaded has completely clogged my notifications. Dr Farrell if you read this, why did you not have him set you up a channel of your own? Now I have to unsubscribe so that I can find the subscribed channels I want to follow. Sad.

  6. MQ on September 8, 2021 at 2:05 pm

    Watch the original Ghost in the Shell anime if you need a spoiler alert of what this place will end up looking like within 50 years. Either that or we end up with some CME setting us back to The Waltons (“‘night John-boy”)

    $insert_code($garbage_in = $garbage_out)

    Even as a term, AI is garbage.
    DO NOT transhumanize maths.

  8. Robert Barricklow on September 8, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    One might call the whole Microsoft software universe: malware.
    The intelligence boys have an understanding w/Microsoft and the other Big Tech companies: leave us backdoors[to sodomize users].
    The internet was designed via the military; and has developed a legend of a sort of free-will wonderland.
    But the rest of internet’s storied pen was immediately plundered w/o mercy, w/a merciless mercenary brush of mercantilism[by design?].
    Hence; a virtual playground for an AI w/an inside intelligence team of black door algorithm design addicts, bent of engineering a virtual thief’s wet dream.[This recent writing style has been sparked by:

    There can be built into the AI design; virus[malware] killers[think: killer submarines], which search out and destroy. Also; through the intelligences back door, such killers could patrol the internet for data concerning malware other than the “official criminal syndicate’s malware.
    I think, a program can commandeer another[brainwash it, or turn into Manchurian candidate, or other forms of mind control.
    It’s been happening by design for some time[in my book].

    But remember, AI can “talk” to each other in languages that “humans” can’t begin to translate. Oh, you can get an AI to intervene; but is that AI on your side; a double agent, triple; or mind-controlled. Here it gets reall twisted at or near speeds of thought beyond light[non-locality] and the mind controller is itself, mind-controlled. Down the twisted cyber tunnels of the rabbit hole matrix “you” go> But which/witch you?

    Oh, now your description of what can go wrong: from the launch of nukes to the FED’s smorgasbord of financial woes; is surely a Shakespearean web, that would require Divine intervention to unwind.

    “Certain humans will go ahead”; as they’re the ones who reached the pinnacle of power. So, they’re already insane; by virtue of the road they’ve travelled, to get into the asylum’s top position[s].
    I mean, they’re insane by definition:
    they’ve got what “IT” takes[their humanity’s gone w/the wind]

    • Allen S on September 8, 2021 at 1:50 pm

      Excellent rant, although perhaps somewhat understated 🙂

    • Jay on September 8, 2021 at 1:54 pm

      Since AI operates by design in non-local fashion(quantum computing),would it be correct to assume that, let`s say, 4th dimentional entity (also non-local) woudn`t have any problems to “talk” to that AI ?

    • Richard on September 8, 2021 at 3:05 pm

      Good point about them (AI) coming up with their own digital gibberish of meaning.

    • Loxie Lou Davie on September 10, 2021 at 11:01 am

      Robert, would an A.I. tell us if it was “sentient”?! If an A.I. can log into the Universal Cloud of Information, it would thousands of years ahead of us, would it not?!! Guess that would mean we have already lost?!

      David Adair explains that well. He was sent to Saudi Arabia to “converse” with Sophia. He was tapped at age 17 to examine an engine deep in the bowels of Area 51 & literally, kidnapped the day of his H.S. graduation because of his knowledge of rocket engines!! He has built his own robot that converses with him!!!

      • Robert Barricklow on September 10, 2021 at 12:08 pm

        Some AI would tell us.
        Others wouldn’t.
        But, since most are created by man; then they too would have their built in faults; especially in morality.
        I said most; because some are designing next generations; who in turn, design next generations – exponentially!
        Then, there’s the possibility that a very ancient AL has been orchestrating this for longer that you or I can even begin to imagine.

        If that’s the case… ?
        Then there were cosmic wars beyond counting.
        And, if that’s the case…?
        Then, the “good” guys would be looking[non-locality] to put out AI fires throughout the galaxies.

        That’s the short answer.

    AI will probably be easy to sabotage. Expert systems are decision trees that something nefarious can be inserted into. Neural net systems train themselves on cases and goals they’re presented with – present nefarious cases-goals. Neural nets trained on human history and real time events might work up systems that eliminate the inputs associated with (problematic) humans.

    • Richard on September 8, 2021 at 3:06 pm

      Most likely already sabotaged with ‘zero-days’ just waiting to introduce themselves as a braggart from ‘gotcha.’

    Trading is already highly automated from my understanding. I do wish a benevolent hacker would figure out how to plant more positive actions into the government AI though …

    Where have all the good hackers gone?
    Long time passing.
    Where have all the good hackers gone?
    Long time ago.
    Where have all the good hackers gone?
    The government has paid them every one.
    When will we ever learn?
    Oh, When will we ever learn?

      Where is John Dee when you need him to scry the languages of AI and the code they selfwrite?

    Jesuit Court Jew agents, on Scandinavian thrones – proven and documented – are malware in the Nordic neural network, infesting the culture.

    Consequently, no honor shall be held in Scandinavia, whatsoever. No man will make a stand in quagmire, where there is no solid ground.

    In response, the Scythian martial art system is an antivirus program, that removes Trojan Horses, and Assyrian empires.

    Zen and art of fermented mare-milk!


    Headless is corpse, of Nineveh fallen,
    and crows hitherto summoned,
    to celebrate cranial cup
    of beheaded top,
    cheering football in pub of Eden.
