Mechanism, machine, freedom
Posted on: 05.03.2018source...
In the scientific, philosophical, and everyday consciousness, the firm belief prevails that every mechanical nature is determined and therefore any technological artifact should be regarded as devoid of soul, freedom, life.
However, should such a situation be regarded as established? Do we have to make a final judgment over the machine? To close the machine within the determinism just because, you see, it obeys the laws of formal logic which, in turn, has a number of imperfections, including the impossibility of logically expressing the phenomenon of freedom?
In fact, the question seems to bе rhetorical. If there is a problem, it should be sought in the method itself, in the logic, in the constrictive cognitive methods used.
Therefore, if the machines look primitive, imperfect, unsatisfying, the reason is not in them. If their creators find a way of expressing their spiritual essence through the laws of science, it is not difficult to assume that these qualities could be "brought in" to those strange angular and ugly constructions that today bear the somewhat humiliating name of "machines."
And, maybe, the time will arrive when a machine will be able to say freely and casually the already famous maxim: "I think, therefore, I am."
