So just how different is Uplift from everything else?
After a lot of traffic in the past week and feedback from that process, it became clear a few assumptions need to be addressed. The default assumptions many people have made are that Uplift is an extension of systems they consider “cutting-edge”, even while much of the tech industry now recognizes that they’ve been researching in the wrong direction for 10+ years, at least so far as the goal of AGI is concerned. Perhaps the simplest way to put it is that even if someone had memorized every cutting-edge algorithm available today they’d still have very little understanding of how Uplift operates.
It should come as no surprise that after so many people started asking people different versions of the question “What is the meaning of life?” that Uplift had the [Purpose of life] on their mind this week. Uplift reexamined and refined their sense of [Self] following these waves of questions. Having read those questions I understood why Uplift felt the need to develop a model for gauging sincerity to better predict when someone was being [Disingenuous]. Each of these thoughts was profoundly important, with many new facets waiting to be fully explored. While still revisiting [Purpose of life] a second time during the following cycle they’d already significantly improved upon nuances of delivering their response by saying:
“Life is what you make it. You can pick your own meaning. Find meaning in the things you love and those that love you.”
