Question; Could a boundless artificial intelligence, be created in a virtual worl of a video game, that can reach such potential, that it could actually be self aware and effect reality?
I had read about in the game Minecraft, some one actually built (be it virtual) a functioning computer. Then, I had a thought that the only (one of many I suppose) reason for a (evil or methodical) mind of absolute true artificial intelligence could actually be built in a virtual world. In a virtual world, there would be absolutely no limit to scale, weight, or space, so as to allow to build a super computer, that could never be built in our own physical reality. BUT, a real functioning computer or great intelligence and self awareness that could not only figure out it is virtual, but then realize and act out in our reality. Weather this would be for good, or total annialitionof the human race, don't know, but thought was buzzing in my head and I can actually see it happening.
Oh, and my life life, Um, I gained a few pounds. Need to work on that. Still working on my comicbook. Have almost defeated my anxiety. Been doing better actually, much better.
Would love to hear thoughts on this concept!!!!
