In attempting to speculate the outcome of the possible race for supremacy
between natural and artificial intelligence it makes sense to consider that there
are basically two sorts of machines - spatial machines and non-spatial machines.
The universe is physically a non-spatial machine. The artificial machines, like
electronic computers, manifesting artificial intelligence are conceptually spatial
machines, physically existing in non-spatial form. A human brain, manifesting
natural intelligence, has both conceptually spatial as well as non-spatial
components. Now, to be the real master of the game of life is to be able to
manipulate the physically non-spatial universe with one’s conceptually nonspatial
intelligence, where the non-spatial human brain stands some chance and
the spatial artificial electronic brain does not stand any.
