What is Boring?

Boring is what doesn’t profoundly touch a person — depending on the ‘what’ and the person. What resonates deeply with one’s inner self? That changes the question into what it means to “be deeply touched” ― influenced by depth and personal relevance. What makes experiences and interactions meaningful or engaging to individuals? This relates to Read the full article…

Deep Semantics & Subconceptual Communication in A.I.

An intriguing application of deep semantics lies in its integration with subconceptual communication (autosuggestion) in A.I. systems. Please first read Deep Semantics. Imagine Imagine an A.I. that grasps complex connections within a user’s semantic network and uses this to craft personalized autosuggestions in coaching. This system would dynamically learn from many user interactions, refining its Read the full article…

Deep Semantics

In a semantic network, concepts are interconnected through conceptual links. Deep semantics takes this a step further, exploring connections at deeper levels. This can still be conceptual or go deeper-than-conceptual. The notion that deeper connections between concepts may hold more significance than direct superficial links is key to grasping human cognition. Imagine two non-linked concepts Read the full article…

From Analogy to Intelligence

If an inference system (mind or A.I.) holds many patterns, it may find many similarities between these at several levels of abstraction. The human brain is an immense pattern recognizer. Super-A.I. will undoubtedly follow a similar path ― as does Lisa. Lisa’s journey thus exemplifies the potential of A.I. to evolve from mere data processors to entities capable Read the full article…

A.I. Ethics = Value Creation

Often viewed as a burden, A.I. ethics can offer significant value to businesses. This necessitates a specific mindset, without which it remains a burden indefinitely. Generally Contemporary A.I. can transform any issue into an asset with a positive mindset. Furthermore, if the ethical considerations seem inherently burdensome, it might be more prudent to pause the Read the full article…

Mental Noise

An appalling degree of mental noise pervades many situations related to human mind topics, ranging from random clutter to focused bias. Why? And why are we generally unaware of it, and do we resist proper insight? Many noisy situations In the excellent book ‘Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment’ by Nobel Prize winner D. Kahneman Read the full article…

Clearly Subtle

What is subtle may seem clear to one person and unclear to another — as can what is obfuscated to the same individual. What is genuinely subtle and what merely appears subtle can be very different. See also Subtlety. As in dancing the tango A subtle leader and follower may be in harmony. A subtle Read the full article…

China and the West Toward One Future From the Inside Out

This is the introduction to a Lisa File (78 p.). If you want the whole file, please contact lisa@aurelis.org, stating who you are and why you want the file. For more about the Lisa Files, click here. In a world increasingly interconnected yet marked by deep divisions, the relationship between China and the West stands as Read the full article…

Are LLMs Parrots or Truly Creative?

Large Language Models (LLMs, such as GPT) are, at present, just mathematical distillations of human-made textual patterns — very many of them. They are, therefore, frequently described as parrots. Size matters. The parrot feature may be applied when there is little input or little diversity in input. Then, clearly, the result is a pattern-based average Read the full article…

Semantically Meaningful Chunks

A Semantically Meaningful Chunk (SMC) is any cognitive entity, big or small, that is worth contemplating. In A.I., these can serve as building blocks of intelligence. It’s what humans often reserve specific terms for. Language comes into play here, significantly contributing to how humans have rapidly advanced in intelligence through using terms, sentences, documents, and Read the full article…

How Autosuggestion Fosters Compassion

Autosuggestion serves as a powerful tool in the AURELIS philosophy for cultivating and sustaining Compassion. How can this be achieved? Autosuggestion can be concretely supported, for instance, through AurelisOnLine guided meditations. Cultivating authentic connections through self-awareness By fostering self-awareness through autosuggestion, individuals can cultivate a deeper understanding of their own emotions and motivations. This enables Read the full article…

Compassion in AURELIS: a Unified Perspective

Compassion in AURELIS is a profound, multi-dimensional concept that transcends mere empathy. This blog is a formalization in 12 points (key themes) as also used by Lisa at the core. From the AURELIS perspective Compassion is a deep, integrative force that promotes personal growth, relieves suffering, and fosters interconnectedness. It is a cornerstone of sustainable Read the full article…

The Future of Open Religion

The future of Open Religion, >as explored in many blogs<, foresees a significant transformation in religious experiences and beliefs. This blog integrates some key points. At its core, the future of Open Religion is about inclusivity, Compassion, and profound understanding, surpassing traditional boundaries and cultivating a global community founded on shared spiritual values and experiences. Read the full article…

How can Suggestion be Powerful?

Suggestion offers a non-coercive way of influencing, providing the receiver the freedom to follow or not. Auto-suggestion extends this freedom even further. How can this be powerful? Autosuggestion In this blog, I use the term ‘suggestion,’ but mostly mean ‘auto-suggestion.’ Autosuggestion rarely involves directly indicating the intended direction but instead operates through deeper, pattern-like associations. Read the full article…

Lisa’s Subconceptual Processing

As an A.I., Lisa’s core ‘thinking’ is fundamentally different from human thinking. Lisa lacks subconscious processes like humans, but she can emulate aspects of subconceptual processing through underlying algorithms and data structures. This blog is about how Lisa can take this into account to reach subconceptual benefits, enhancing her ability to provide intelligent and relevant Read the full article…

We Need to Be the Best We Can

This differs from being ‘the best person’ or ‘the most intelligent beings on Earth’ in competition with others. Our only – and fierce – competition should be with ourselves. The best, in good Aurelian tradition, is most Compassionately the best — striving for in-depth excellence. This striving is purposeful. It’s about standing at one’s limits Read the full article…

The Tunnel and the End

There’s light at the end of every tunnel, obviously, since otherwise, it wouldn’t be one. But some tunnels are naturally very long. AURELIS as a total project is about such a tunnel, as is anything that is radically oriented to depth. Long, deep tunnels can frighten people. Some are so frightened they never enter the Read the full article…
