Man Quotes 358

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.
Letter to Josiah Quincy III (14 February 1825)
