Psychedelics, Consciousness and the Modern Search for AGI - Pt 1

Join us for an introductory discussion on how the history of research into psychedelics from the 1950's through the modern day informed new ways of viewing consciousness and understanding, and how this exposes both the good and bad of modern approaches to the search for artificial general intelligence and how it may inform a new path for the future.

Psychedelics, Consciousness and the Modern Search for AGI - Pt 1

  1. 1. Psychedelics, Consciousness, and Modern AGI – Pt 1 Lancaster AIRichard Everts Co-Founder, CEO, Sugey Founder, Lancaster AI rich@richardeverts.com All opinions are my own and not representative of my companies, organizations, or clients
  2. 2. PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Timothy Leary, PhD LSD Aldous Huxley Mescaline, LSD Terence McKenna Psilocybin Rick Strassman, MD DMT
  3. 3. Psilocybin PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Griffiths RR, Richards WA, McCann U, Jesse R John Hopkins University Study 2006, 2011, 2020 Decriminalization: Denver, Oakland, Santa Cruz Over 100 pending US cities In contrast, marijuana decriminalization started as recent as 2012
  4. 4. PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Panspermia Theory Interstellar Reproduction Biological Age and Resiliency 600+ Million Years Are mushrooms more than they appear?
  5. 5. PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI A connective super-highway Francis Crick, Co-founder of DNA, wrote about it on his dying day in the hospital (2005) Griffiths, John Hopkins, 2020: "psilocybin acutely alters the functional connectivity of the claustrum with brain networks that support perception, memory, and attention." Reduction of processing speeds by 30% – 50% Brain effects and the claustrum
  6. 6. Common subjective experiences of the psilocybin “trip” PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Ego Dissolution “Oneness” Machine elves “Inter- dimensionality” Also common to DMT Time Distortion “Beyond Time” Voice of the Shroom “Illumination”
  7. 7. Let’s focus on time distortion and ideas PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI 1. Potential dissolution of ego comes from time dilation? 2. McKenna Attractors – The future pulls the past towards itself 3. Scaling of time where epi-genetic changes transition information to language and accelerating network impacts
  8. 8. Multi-temporal information exchange PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Found it’s way into 2D Res-Net to off- set vanishing gradient, or loss of information over time (which is the semantic representation stored in RAM)
  9. 9. Potential ways forward on multi-temporal PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Quantum Networks Without DL Multi-state 4D Recurrent Networks
  10. 10. McKenna attractors and GANs PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Traditional networks map topology of information in a single closed system, whereas GAN’s represent mapping topology of a present and future system
  11. 11. Potential ways forward on attractors PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI Quantum GAN Supremacy https://medium.com/syncedreview/tsinghua- university-proves-quantum-supremacy-on-gans- d2809bd2e2a3 Yang-Mills w/ isolated t variable and microtubules? Descriptor for 5-6 dimensional quantum fields currently at levels far below atomic nuclei – design of 1st Markov Isolation of time as an independent variable Micro-tubules, symmetry, coherence, and cognition
  12. 12. Scaling of time PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI https://medium.com/@rayzer42/holochain-and-collective-intelligence-avoiding-a-technological-singularity-ca9d98920e72
  13. 13. Epigenetic changes from DNA to language PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI McKenna: On every dimension is the imprint of the hyper- dimensional force that made it. Like reverse engineering the role of wind on sand dunes through time.
  14. 14. Language as reality builder PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI I-Ching and the Tao Base-16 Cognitive Theoretic Model of the Universe Christopher Langan- Reality is a language that is talking to itself about itself Christianity John 1:1 PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1
  15. 15. Language as an instruction set PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI English phonemes are the source code bound by a temporal clock Compiler Real: I am awesome Embeddings: A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 … Symbolic: If { i = awesome } … Critical theory is a type of compiler, similar to rational enlightenment or material reductionism Language is the instruction set.
  16. 16. Perhaps a unique instruction set for embodied agents? PSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1 LANCASTER AI 1. Language connected to motor activations, using HTM style networks? 2. Currently undeveloped instruction set for handling massively parallel information processing 3. Transition to bio-computing
  17. 17. Be wary of treading on the domain of the gods There are old shamans, bold shamans, but no brave and old shamans. - Terence McKenna For those that decide to investigate (which I do not promote!) 1. Setting and mindset 2. Buddies 3. Respect the power LANCASTER AIPSYCHEDELICS, CONSCIOUSNESS, AND MODERN AGI – PART 1
