The Impact of Cybernetic Mentality on Interpretation of Fundamental Categories of Philosophy
Philosophical-theoretical conceptualization of the experience of Cybernetics in the creation of artificial intelligence (AI) leads us to the following conclusions: 1. The AI is not intelligence and never will be. 2. In principle the AI is capable to achieve any degree of the proximity of the formalized ‘senses’ (semantics), intentions (will) and intuition (talent) to their informal prototype. 3. In a distributed mode of the existence the pair (intelligence, AI) is as global and universal constituent of the AI as the pair (energy, intentionality) and as the pair (matter, forms of virtual reality). This makes us take a new look at the problem of creationism -the World can be basically established (more correctly, being established) both with the participation of a subject-like Creator, and without it, according to a plan, a project, by way and methods, characteristic for the human creativity, but a formal creativity, though outwardly similar to the former.4. The world is not atoms and the void, the world is a metasystem of microsystems, macrosystems and megasystems, their hierarchy and heterarchy. This applies both to real objects, and virtual images. 5. Management is an inexpensive energetically and simple algorithmically impact on the object, which may cause an extensive energetically and complicated algorithmically post-effect; figuratively speaking, pressing a button we cause an explosion of the A-bomb. Management is the only means to achieve a positive balance in the dynamics of the Universe entropy. Our ‘conquest’ of the Nature has been carried out just in this way. 6. Information – a process and result of transforming the vivid semantics of thoughts and senses into the compact formal meanings –the codes and, vice versa, is the implementation of the knowledge portability.
