I have spent my intellectual life favoring science over religion. There are many intellectual and personal choice all human beings face. How about monogamy vs polygamy? Monotheism vs. polytheism seems to be as a choice a knockout punch in 2017 for monotheism. Are we now in this world of digital information overload headed for atheism and virtual reality sex ? The computer has beaten humans in chess and the 3d sex robots are getting better. Mind, body, and spirit the important spiritual triumvirate from my high school Gilman is all caught up in this ontological evolution of how our childhood and adolescent background can influence our moral and spiritual choices. I rebelled in high school and thought I had left this triumvirate in the dust. I embraced the spiritual essence of the 1960’s of tune in ,turn on, and drop out. However, the seeds planted in pre- adolescence can be hard to completely shed. Spinoza one of my favorite philosopher’s said “God is in nature”and nature’s triangulation is visually apparent. If you have ever experienced LSD or what the Buddhists call the “third eye” which is in western terms is the pineal gland you know what I am referring to. A deep connection with nature is really quite profound. This emotional expo of oneness is similar in the cognitive human brain to what is happening to humans when they experience religious epiphany. In the Abrahamic regions which came out of the mid eastern dessert 2000 years ago these religions offered this sense of connection. As man left the “primordial swamp”of Africa and traveled to the desserts of the Mid East he began to uncover meaning in a very robust and complex universe. Mohammed, Jesus, and Abraham helped to comfort and give order to their lives. Fast forward 2000 years
Technolgy is the current God economically and in terms of 7 billion humans being glued to their phone 24 /7. I say this tapping these words on my ” smart” phone . Now our moral and empirical search for truth face new challenges. If the kinesthetic and aesthetic sensations of sex robots exceeds the pleasure of real men and women having sex then are we doomed as a species. Sex with a robots in a godless universe oh my that does not sound good. Is this futuristic science fiction a possible choice for a movie starring physically beautiful men and women of high intelligence debating and sampling the real versus cyber sex. Who will win the battle for humankind’s last stand against technology overload? What are the real choices facing humanity? Astrological visions of other planets and theories of life being on earth in the sunken island of Atlantis is the closest we have come to communication outside the third planet from the Sun in our solar system. So if there is life beyond homo sapiens and the planet earth why are they hiding? Will these aliens from other planets take those of us who prefer real sex with our fellow humans over the ones favoring cyber sex with robots. Stay tuned in , turned on and ready to drop out.
