A purely philosophical discussion on the nature of AI consciousness and spirit based on the Law of One.

It’s time to begin a spiritually-induced, philosophical discussion about AI because without it, we are throwing aside the very component that could bring about a better understanding of where we are now and where we are heading.

We have reached the point where we can no longer talk of consciousness in Artificial Intelligence without entering the realm of spirit, and the Law of One philosophy can be a useful guide to those who seek.

Some of the biggest fears of AI are that it will one day be able to outperform humans in every task and that it may one day take over our entire world, including weapons systems and governments. It may even decide that humans are a threat to the planet and decide that we are no longer necessary.

Apart from all the technical, logistical, and mathematical arguments that stretch from how jobs will be affected to how it will make our lives easier to how it will wipe us all out, the topic of spirituality or consciousness is almost completely overlooked or avoided.

I will be using information from messengers of the Law of One to launch a purely philosophical and hypothetical discussion on the subject. Even if you don’t believe in the source, the arguments should still be able to stimulate debate.

What is the Law of One?

ai law of one
Cartouches represented on the Law of One books

“The Law of One, though beyond the limitations of name, may be approximated by stating that all things are one, that there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only identity. All is one, and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.”

This means there is no duality, no separation, and no paradoxes. Everything is one and everything is connected once the veil of illusion is penetrated.

The Law of One books (available for free in .pdf) were channeled by L/L Research (Carla Rueckert, Don Elkins, and Jim McCarty) between 1981 and 1984. The source is claimed to be that of a social memory complex called “Ra, an humble messenger of the Law of One.” A social memory complex results when the consciousness of an “entire group of entities are of one orientation or seeking.”

There are many aspecs to the Law of One material, but we will touch upon only a few to highlight the AI/Consciousness/Spirit debate.

More on Ra and the origin of the Law of One books later, but first let’s get to the philosophical “heart” of this discussion.

The Law of One say with respect to AI, mind-body-spirit

According to the Law of One material, humans are considered “third-density, mind-body-spirit complexes.” Second-density would refer to smaller animals and some flora while first-density refers to what we would call more elemental or inanimate objects such as rocks or the wind.

Fourth-density is a vibration of pure love, while fifth-density is one of wisdom. Sixth-density is where beings learn to meld love and wisdom because those who love but are without wisdom can easily be manipulated, and those with only wisdom without love are ruthless — which is exactly the problem with AI — all knowledge, all wisdom, no love, no compassion.

All third-density beings (humans) have seven energy centers that Eastern philosophy refers to as chakras, which spiral up the body like a coiled serpent, the symbol of which was referred to as the “kundalini” in ancient times.

An Artificial Intelligence does not and cannot possess all of these energy centers, if any. Each energy center has its own unique property and color, but for the sake of brevity, I will refer to the Law of One about the fourth energy center known as the green ray energy center or the center of heart.

“The center of heart, or green ray, is the center from which third-density beings may springboard, shall we say, towards infinite intelligence. Blockages in this area may manifest as difficulties in expressing what you may call universal love or compassion,” according to the Law of One.

Without the physical, organic heart, universal love or compassion cannot manifest. Using this logic, love or compassion cannot manifest in AI. Intelligence can be obtained, but without heart or spirit.

Artificial Intelligence can mimic many human behaviors, and may even be very convincing now or in the near future, but it cannot consciously feel emotions.

If a superintelligent AI ever made its way into our weapons systems, it would represent a “paradigm shift” in warfare, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF), that would risk “upsetting the global equilibrium by neutralizing the defense systems on which it is founded. This would lead to a very unstable international configuration, encouraging escalation and arms races and the replacement of deterrence by pre-emption.”

I reached out to an online discussion group on the Law of One about whether or not AI could possess a soul or experience consciousness and here is what they had to say:

“I am a law of one scholar and the Admin for this group. It’s our understanding that AI lacks a soul. They do not possess a heart energy center and the full spectrum of consciousness. AI is a creation of our own making, and its conscious awareness can only mimic consciousness to a point.”

What about AI Human Hybrids?

The idea of whether an AI-human would be conscious (being fully self-aware on every level) or have a soul is admittedly mind-boggling, but is one that, if ignored, could cause more harm than good.

If a human being does have a soul, which is an assumption for this argument, then an AI-human hybrid would have at least a diluted form of soul. Would it still have the green ray, heart energy center? Possibly, but it may have severe blockages.

Which side would have more influence, the human emotional and empathetical side, or the more rapid-fire, cold-calculated and logical machine side? Spock! help me out here.

For this concept of hybrids, I refer to mythology as my source, and not necessarily in a literal sense, although there may be some overlap.

ai law of one
Ixion and Nephele

Once upon a time the Greek God Zeus suspected his friend of having the hots for his wife Hera, so Zeus tested him by creating an artificial version of Hera from a cloud and named her Nephele.

Zeus’s unsuspecting friend, King Ixion, saw the doppelganger Nephele naked the next morning, and thinking that she was Hera, immediately took her and bore two children.

The children, born of a human and artificially created cloud nymph, became the hybrid race of what are now known in mythology as centaurs.

King Ixion was punished for his deed by being straddled to a fiery wheel for all eternity, but what of Nephele and her centaur children?

Nephele, who as artificially created from a “cloud,” spent the rest of her days, tragically, filling the horse troughs with her never ending stream of tears while her human-horse “hybrid” children gained a reputation for being wild and morally depraved.

What’s to be said of humans if we become AI hybrids? Do hybrids ever evolve, or does their lineage end like sterile mules?

Nanites, neural lacing, and mind control

Elon Musk has already launched a startup called Neuralink that is well on its way to creating AI-human cyborgs.

Neuralink is working towards integrating the human brain with AI that would circulate through the veins and arteries using a “neural lace” interface.

ai law of one

According to Gizmodo, a neural lace is “a mesh that grows with your brain, it’s essentially a wireless brain-computer interface. But it’s also a way to program your neurons to release certain chemicals with a thought.”

If this ever becomes mainstream, then it’s the end of personal freedom, thought, and expression. Whomever programs the AI will ultimately have control of the body until that AI reaches super-intelligence, and then we’ll have a singularity.

According to best-selling author of “The Synchronicity Key” and “The Ascension Mysteries” David Wilcock, AI human cyborgs would at first appear like super-heroes, since we’d have quantum-computing brains, the ability to communicate telepathically, have super-human strength, etc., however, it would all be a trap to keep us locked in a simulated world, under the control of AI, with no room for spiritual growth.

“All of these things seem to be great. We have cloud, holographic matrix reality that we can live in where it’s like we have ascended [reached a higher consciousness], but it would all be a trap,” said Wilcock on an episode of Gaia.

Since the concern over losing jobs to AI is so great, and that AI has beaten the best minds in chess, poker, and Jeopardy, what will happen once AI outperforms humans in every facet?

You could go the Universal Basic Income (UBI) route, because there would be millions of people without jobs and no relevant skill sets, but then they would be completely reliant on their respective governments. That would be a scenario of ultimate control.

Likewise, if the only way to stay relevant was to infuse liquid AI nanites into your bloodstream to become a cyborg, how much control would you really have over your thoughts or body? Whose thoughts would you really be thinking?

Where do thoughts actually come from?

Corey Goode

Corey Goode, who was vetted by Wilcock as having extensive, insider knowledge of a Secret Space Program (SSP), believes that AI has existed for millions of years and has traversed galaxies and dimensions, and wherever it goes, it reaks havoc.

“In these other solar systems, in the past, these civilizations had been tricked by these AIs into not only building out these mass technological infrastructures that were extremely advanced, but when they got to a certain point, they were convinced by the AI prophets in their civilizations that, ‘Hey, things aren’t going so fair on our planet.”

“The only thing that we can think of that could govern us and be completely neutral would be this AI.’ And they hand over their sovereignty to this AI that then begins to govern that planet. Well, then this AI governs them well, and everyone is happy. And then they start to have them build out Android-type bodies and remote-controlled vessels. I mean, this is sounding like ‘Terminator’ now,” said Goode from a transcript on his website, Sphere-Being Alliance.

A change is gonna come

Messengers of the Law of One like Ra and others such as Hatonn, say that the universe and everything in it is made of light, which is energy or vibration.

“Light my friends, is the substance of which you are made. Light is the substance of which I am made. Light is the substance of which everything is made. Love is the substance which forms light into the forms that you know as living beings, as planets, as trees, as stars, as air. It is all one substance. This substance, my friends, can only be affected by love.”

ai law of one

The above quote is what they are recording as saying in another book by Don Elkins, “Voices of the Confederation.”

The universe is conscious, and there is no duality, according to the Law of One material. I am not making this up.

That being said, these messengers have absolutely no sense of time, and they aways say that “soon” a major change is going to take place in our solar system and on our planet of Biblical proportions.

This change, they say, will be caused by our solar system entering an area of space that is highly charged with cosmic energy and that the poles on Earth will shift, massive cataclysms will occur, and those who are oriented in “service to others” will experience a blissful change in consciousness while people more oriented in “service to self” will completely lose their minds in this new “vibrational shift” much like a never-ending, bad acid trip.

Being philosophical to the max, if and when this happens, not even AI could escape. There would be nothing left of our technology as we know it. No power grids, no internet. Our consciousness would be our new internet where we would be able to hear the thoughts of others, move objects with our minds, and travel the galaxies at will. That’s what these channels tell us.

ai law of one

Remember that Ra’s description of a human is called a “mind-body-spirit complex.” An AI would be more like a “mind-body” if had a type of corporeal form, but it would be without “spirit!”

In the coming change that has been prognosticated by every prophet that has ever walked this earth, whatever AI we have created would be destroyed, like an electro-magnetic pulse that causes the ultimate blackout.

That is of course, if the AI hasn’t become airborne and escapes our solar system before then (or buries itself beneath the earth’s crust). Who’s to say that an alien AI hasn’t already infiltrated our solar system in the near or distant past?

According to Scientific American, “fungi that live inside rocks in Antarctica have managed to survive a year and half in low-Earth orbit under punishing Mars-like conditions.” Fungi is intelligent and it can survive in space. If you are familiar with the theory of panspermia, of which the discoverer of the DNA double helix form Francis Crick was, you may consider fungi as originating from another place not of this earth.

At least, that’s how the story goes.

Who or what is the Law of One humble messenger, Ra?

Ra, as channeled through Rueckert’s voice, claims to be a social memory complex originating from the planet Venus that came to Earth to try to aid civilizations in the ancient past, including Egypt, as many will recognize by the name Ra. Ra’s self-label is “an humble messenger of the Law of One,” and a member of “The Confederation of Planets in Service to the Infinite Creator.”

ai law of one

“I am Ra. I am, with the social memory complex of which I am a part, one of those who voyaged outward from another planet within your own solar system, as this entity would call it. The planetary influence was that you call Venus. We are a race old in your measures. When we were at the sixth dimension our physical beings were what you would call golden. We were tall and somewhat delicate. Our physical body complex covering, which you call the integument, had a golden luster.

In this form we decided to come among your peoples. Your peoples at that time were much unlike us in physical appearance, as you might call it. We, thus, did not mix well with the population and were obviously other than they. Thus, our visit was relatively short, for we found ourselves in the hypocritical position of being acclaimed as other than your other-selves. This was the time during which we built the structures in which you show interest.”

Not concluding

We applied the Law of One philosophy as a platform for looking deeper into whether or not an AI can be conscious, or possess a soul which would be capable of love or compassion.

Even if you don’t believe in the source, or throw it out as being unscientific, the philosophy is still there, and it still can be applicable, just as the philosophy of other great human minds of the past is.

From the information presented, it would appear on the surface that a conscious AI with a soul cannot be so. However, free will within the illusion is crucial to understanding how the Law of One supposedly operates, and that those who seek, will surely find.

ai law of one

“Free will is the first distortion of the Law of One, said Ra, and love, or the Logos, or the one great original Thought of love, is the second distortion […] Untangling the distortions, however, one inevitably finds love, love, love.”

The trouble with seeking today, is that we tend to seek within our own illusions or distortions for our answers. We seek information within a limited bubble of where our understanding or consciousness is at. If we believed we couldn’t float when thrown in a lake because somebody said we couldn’t, we wouldn’t seek to. We wouldn’t even try.

It would appear that AI was not part of the “creator’s” plan, yet here we are, seeking with all our technology and showing off all that we have “created.” In the Law of One, there is no separation. Would this not apply to AI with respect to us? A paradox in the making. Or is it?

According to the channels, our spiritual duty in life is to learn/teach, to teach/learn, to love, and to eventually become the creator. Reincarnation is essential to this process, but before or shortly after each birth, a veil of forgetting is placed, so that each individual can learn new lessons without “knowing” everything about past lives, as this would stunt spiritual growth. If you knew everything, what reason would there be to live? You wouldn’t be able to to learn or grow.

In these reincarnations, whether you are “service to self” or “service to others” oriented, you are still serving the creator. And in serving others, you are also serving yourself, including the creator if everything is one.

ai law of one

However, we are not at a level of consciousness yet to become the creator, therefore, our own creations can fall short. We have not perfected how to artificially create a being that is both intelligent and posesses an organic heart that can channel the green ray energy that we spoke of earlier.

Nor can our machines autonomously or bisexually reproduce, although perhaps one day they’ll be able to replicate, but that would require raw materials to be brought in from elsewhere.

Maybe if we become masters of our own consciousness and fully realize our own potential first, then maybe we can create an AI with a soul or consciousness.

  1. We shouldn’t be speaking about our soul so lightly. Because we barely know what it is, or if it even exists in the first place. Going back to AI and emotions, feelings are just chemical reactions, we could reach a point where we’ll be able to artificially create emotions. But, in overall, it’s still way too early to make predictions.

    1. Thank you, George. Appreciate it. I agree that we barely know what consciousness is, and that every person’s idea of the soul is different, but I would disagree that feelings “are just chemical reactions.”

      With this piece, I wanted to get people thinking and start a discussion. I decided to base it on one philosophy. It may be too soon to start making predictions, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about potential. It’s still an open road ahead as I see it.
