ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE - A Protocol for Setting Moral and Ethical Operational Standards

This paper anticipates the growth and evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) and artificial general intelligence (AGI) programs where moral and ethical standards are fundamental for their safe operational use.  If, as Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking said in 2017, that AI has the potential to be a dangerous threat to the survival of civilization, then at this early stage of AI program development there is a need for a protocol that sets the moral and ethical standards for the operation of AI programs.

The predicament for AI’s program development is that until now the values that underlie moral and ethical decision-making have never been identified and named.  What has obscured this fact is that all historic and contemporary discussion have centered around theories ABOUT morality and ethics rather than theories OF morality and ethics.  Until now.

The resolution to artificial intelligence’s predicament will be found in this short paper. 

If artificial intelligence is to become humane in its decision-making, then it must take on the values that are innate to our species, and react by presenting moral and ethical options that erupt from those values.

The Most Highs Rule in the Kingdom of Men

Most Highs Rule

Teacher Prolotheos:
Urantia and all the other inhabited spheres in the Super Universe of Orvonton receive three levels of government, care, and supervision. From Uversa, our super-universe capital comes the general supervision for all local universes by the agencies of the Ancient of Days. From the local universes comes the government of the Creator Sons, like our Christ Michael (Jesus) who most capably governs His Nebadon Universe. And finally, from the Systems is dispatched, for the inhabited worlds, a Planetary Prince, for the local government.

Magisterial Son, Monjoronson:
My child, it is a pleasure for me to formally enter into contact with you for the very first time on this tropical afternoon. Do not worry about what you may call me. I do have several names, and even more to be given to me in the future. On each planet and according to the geographic regions where an Avonal Son appears on His mission, he may receive different names and titles. Call me what you like best, your respect and love I can feel through your spiritual vibration.

A Testament for Light and Life

Sunday, 13 January, 2019

Teacher: Trinity Teacher Uteah
Greetings, my dear students,
It remains to be seen whether or not a world in rebellion shall ever recover without having to go through some kind of redemption plan to move it  through the threshold of its current state of repeatable dysfunction, delinquency, and war-like behavior.  There are many of you within the community of spirit-led believers--agondonters and alike, that are firmly on the side of a "hands-off" policy by the planetary managers and celestial administrators of the universe to see that Urantia "digs out" of  its problems without intervention by the Universal Father.  You rightly believe that intervention is interference in the free-will prerogative in this age of the Supreme.  None the less, we administrators and planetary managers have a duty to inform light workers (boots on the ground) and to keep the flow of revelation ongoing even in the face of skepticism and cynical opinions.

Collect those Gems and Store your Treasures

Sunday, 6 January, 2019

Teacher: Trinity Teacher Uteah
Today, my dear students, we shall explore our feelings at the soul level of our being and I shall lead you to discover those deep heart felt thoughts and feelings that are present within you, but are sometimes buried behind the wounds of your temporal existence.  Living on a world like Urantia, at the present time, it can be difficult to maintain a peaceful loving outlook when many are having to struggle just to survive. Many are themselves dealing with the dysfunction of relationships that are also suffering from a disconnect with their souls stemming from a similar disparity.  Let me guide you back to a place where your love of life still exists and where compassion and mercy lives within you. Let us consider the common ground of all humanity and you will see that you are not so different from one another.

Fear Is The Great Temptation

Sunday, 9 December, 2018
Fear Is The Great Temptation

The Beloved One:
Today we will delve a little deeper into the subject of ‘fear’ and what it represents. There is fear everywhere; fear of growing old, fear of losing one’s health, fear of losing loved ones. And there is fear of the future.
The list goes on and it is seemingly endless. Each person harbors their personal known, unknown, and unreasoned fears until they are confronted with them.
Fear is the great defrauder of inner peace and can attack your spiritual, emotional and physical well-being. Illness results when fear is allowed to get out of hand. Fear imprisons the real self, so the spiritual seed of the soul neither grows nor does it flourish.
