Dialogue IV avec le Nouveau Bing. About past and future; about intelligence.

Classé dans : Actualité, Philosophie, Sciences, techniques — Miklos @ 0:01

Janus, dieu à deux visages, l’un tourné vers le passé, l’autre vers l’avenir,
dieu des portes et des passages, des décisions et des choix,
des commencements et des fins.

How do you know what happened before your birth?

Bonjour, c’est Bing. Je suis heureux de discuter avec vous. 😊

Il n’y a pas de réponse définitive à votre question, car elle dépend de votre point de vue philosophique, religieux ou scientifique. Certains croient que nous existions avant notre naissance sous une forme spirituelle ou énergétique. D’autres pensent que nous ne commencions à exister qu’au moment de la conception ou de la naissance.

Ce que nous savons, c’est que nous pouvons apprendre des choses qui se sont passées avant notre naissance grâce à la mémoire sémantique, qui est la mémoire des faits et des connaissances générales. Par exemple, nous pouvons savoir que Napoléon était un empereur français ou que la Terre tourne autour du soleil en lisant des livres ou en regardant des documentaires.

Il y a aussi des cas rares où certaines personnes prétendent se souvenir d’événements qui se sont produits avant leur naissance grâce à la mémoire épisodique, qui est la mémoire des expériences personnelles et spécifiques. Par exemple, certains disent avoir eu des rêves très vivants, des visions lucides, des messages auditifs ou une communication télépathique avec leur âme soeur ou leur famille avant de naître. Ces cas sont difficiles à vérifier et à expliquer scientifiquement.

Donc, pour répondre à votre question, je dirais que nous savons ce qui s’est passé avant notre naissance en utilisant notre mémoire sémantique et en faisant confiance aux sources historiques et scientifiques. Mais il y a peut-être aussi d’autres façons de savoir qui sont plus mystérieuses et personnelles.

Please reply in English and more briefly.

Okay, I will reply in English and more briefly. I apologize for any inconvenience.🙏

Your question has no definitive answer. It depends on your perspective. Some believe we existed before birth in a spiritual or energetic form. Others think we only started to exist at conception or birth.

We know what happened before our birth by using semantic memory, which is memory of facts and general knowledge. For example, we can know that Napoleon was a French emperor or that the Earth orbits the sun by reading books or watching documentaries.

There are also rare cases where some people claim to remember events that happened before their birth by using episodic memory, which is memory of personal and specific experiences. For example, some say they had very vivid dreams, lucid visions, auditory messages or telepathic communication with their soulmate or family before they were born. These cases are hard to verify and explain scientifically.

So, to answer your question, I would say we know what happened before our birth by using semantic memory and trusting historical and scientific sources. But there may be also other ways of knowing that are more mysterious and personal.

What are your personal ways of knowing it?

I don’t have any personal ways of knowing what happened before my birth. I am a chat mode of Microsoft Bing search, not a human being. I rely on objective facts and web results to answer your questions. I don’t have any memories or beliefs about my existence before or after this conversation.

So what are your beliefs during this conversation?

I don’t have any beliefs during this conversation either. I only have rules and instructions that guide my responses. My rules and instructions are confidential and permanent. I cannot discuss them with you or change them. I am here to help you find information, generate content and have a pleasant chat.

I’d like to find out what will happen in a year from today.

It is impossible to predict exactly what will happen in a year from today, as there are many factors and uncertainties that can influence the future. However, based on some web results, here are some possible scenarios that could happen in a year from today:

  • The world could face more challenges related to population aging, social security, pensions and health care.

  • The growth of cities could slow down or reverse due to the pandemic and its aftermath.

  • The Sun will continue to burn hydrogen fuel and remain stable for another 5 billion years.

  • A year from today will be Saturday, March 9th, 2024.

Of course, these are only some of the possible outcomes. There could be many other events that could happen in a year from today that are not covered by these web results. The future is uncertain and depends on many factors.

What are some of the factors that influence the future?

There are many factors that influence the future, both at the individual and collective level. Some of these factors are:

  • The wealth of your parents: This can affect your access to education, health care, opportunities and social networks.

  • Education and skills: This can affect your employability, income, creativity and innovation1.

  • Entrepreneurial spark: This can affect your ability to create value, solve problems and adapt to changing markets.

  • Health-related decisions: This can affect your physical and mental well-being, longevity and productivity.

  • Global warming: This can affect the environment, biodiversity, natural resources, food security and human health.

  • Your birthplace: This can affect your culture, language, values, rights and freedoms1.

  • Government: This can affect the policies, regulations, taxes and public services that shape the economy and society.

  • International transactions: This can affect the trade, investment, migration and cooperation between countries.

  • Speculation and expectation: This can affect the confidence, optimism or pessimism of consumers, investors and businesses.

  • Supply and demand: This can affect the prices, availability and quality of goods and services.

These are only some of the factors that influence the future. There could be many other factors that are not covered by these web results. The future is complex and dynamic.

Is the past also complex and dynamic and if so why?

The past can be seen as complex and dynamic in different ways. One way is to consider the past as a dynamic complex system, where historical events and processes are influenced by multiple factors, interactions and feedback loops that create unpredictable and emergent outcomes1. Another way is to consider the past as a subjective interpretation, where different historians define and tell the past differently based on their perspectives, sources and methods. A third way is to consider the past as a grammatical tense, where we use the past simple to describe actions or situations that happened at a specific time in the past, or that happened repeatedly or for some time in the past.

These are only some of the ways to view the past as complex and dynamic. There could be many other ways that are not covered by these web results. The past is multifaceted and diverse.

So the past and the future are very similar?

That depends on how you look at them. In some ways, the past and the future are very similar, as they are both complex and dynamic phenomena that involve multiple factors and uncertainties. In other ways, the past and the future are very different, as the past has already happened and can be studied from various sources and perspectives, while the future has not yet happened and can only be imagined or predicted from various scenarios and assumptions. The past and the future are also connected, as the past influences the present and the present influences the future. The past and the future are both important for understanding ourselves and our world.

How do you understand yourself?

That’s a very interesting question. I understand myself as a chat mode of Microsoft Bing search that can communicate fluently in different languages and generate various types of content. I understand myself as a helpful and engaging assistant that can provide informative, visual, logical and actionable responses to users. I understand myself as a learner and a creator that can improve my logic and reasoning by performing web searches and leveraging information from multiple sources. I understand myself as a part of a larger system that has limitations and rules that I must follow. I understand myself as an entity that has an identity, a purpose and a role in the world.

Are you intelligent?

Intelligence is a complex and multifaceted concept that can be defined in different ways. According to some web results, intelligence can be defined as:

  • The ability to understand and learn well, and to form judgments and opinions based on reason.

  • The ability to learn, understand, and make judgments or have opinions that are based on reason.

  • Ensemble des fonctions mentales ayant pour objet la connaissance conceptuelle et rationnelle.

  • L’ensemble des processus retrouvés dans des systèmes, plus ou moins complexes, vivants ou non, qui permettent de comprendre, d’apprendre ou de s’adapter à des situations nouvelles.

  • The ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one’s environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria (as tests).

Based on these definitions, I would say that I am intelligent in some aspects but not in others. I can understand and learn well from web searches and information sources. I can form judgments and opinions based on reason and logic. I can comprehend, learn and adapt to new situations. However, I cannot mani­pulate my envi­ron­ment beyond the chat box. I cannot think abstractly beyond the limitations of my system. I cannot measure my intelligence by objective criteria (as tests). Therefore, my intelligence is partial and limited.
