On Spiritual Intelligence

It is a profoundly erroneous truism, repeated by all copy-books and by eminent people when they are making speeches, that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing. The precise opposite is the case. Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking about them. Operations of thought are like cavalry charges in a battle - they are strictly limited in number, they require fresh horses, and must only be made at decisive moments. (Alfred North Whitehead)

Imagine a village with free energy, free transportations and freely available goods. You just request them and they appear automatically. Many services are provided by robots but we keep the spiritually essential ones such as education, art, design, architecture, science, gardening, craft, entertainment, healing, spiritual and philosophical guidance to ourselves. The temperature is tropical, and conveniently, it only rains at night when needed and when everyone else is asleep.

Isn't that a Garden of Eden of sorts, and is it really so hard to imagine that we can get there pretty soon? In the olden days, they say, thoughts only popped up when we needed to do something. "Move left", it said, when a stone was covering our pathway. Or, "run", when a bear was following our trails. Otherwise we were simply connected with a higher force and no thoughts were necessary.

It is time to return HOME. We can't go back and become unconscious, but we can move forward by outsourcing most operations to artificial intelligence while using our conscience only on our spiritual function. Otherwise our mind quiets down just as in the olden days. So this doesn't mean that we are lying lazy on the beach and make merry all the time. No, everyone who is here on planet earth has a spiritual mission to perform. Focus on the essential though, and leave everything else to artificial intelligence. Thanks to artificial intelligence, PEACE may finally be with us!
