Jacque Fresco-In Search for the Science of Communication-Nov 3, 2010 (3/3)

Anyway, put it to test. Let me know what happens. If they please react to this state, we are very much interested, we want to know how far we can go, in the science of attempting developing a science of communication. You can call it the limitations of communication, whatever you wanna call the tape. Toward a science of communication, and impossible attainment, at present. Now if you can suddenly input into a persons head, without having them go through all the experience, if you can inplant a system of communication, like what people talk about when they say, instinctive behavior. If you could - you could do that with robots, when he sees a fire he puts it out, when he sees an automobile accident, he opens the door to get the people out. If the people don't seem to move after a certain test, he calls the morgue, if there's some life, he calls a hospital, or it calls a hospital. Does it care? That doesn't matter. What matters is, did the robot do the right thing at the time? If the robot bites his nails and says "I'm so sorry about the accident", it doesn't make people any better. So you don't want a robot that feels sorry for people, you want a robot that calls an ambulance, and calls a certain type of physician, if the bones are broken. If the robot knows how to do that, you don't give a shit about its philosophy. Do you understand what I'm saying? So how intelligent do you want a robot to be? What kind of service do you want of the robot? That's why when an inventor gives a robot the pleasing smell of a rose and all that, the robot would have behavior superfluous to your needs. If he goes around smelling roses all day long. But if he goes around killing insects that spread desease, that would be to your advantage. So you wouldn't want a robot, that had any information, superfluous to the need for your creation for that robot. All you want of an automobile is transportation. You don't want it to bitch about the weather, because you can't do anything about that. But if you said to the robot, "what kind of weather do you want?" The robot says "Pleasant weather" - "do you know how to do that?" - "no" - "then shut up!" - the robot will shut up. Even a robot can understand that. If you can't control the weather, you can't make any contributions. If you can design a ship that can go under the water when there's a storm, you know like a submarine, you don't need to be subject to the big waves. So remember, a submarine is designed to support people underwater. Rarely, it's not designed to support people flying through the air, until one day a submarine can come out of the water and fly through the air, then it would have to be quite different. Do you understand? The same with people. As in their range of operation. This is all related, whether people will see that relationship, that is something else. Depends on their background, not how smart they are. Background meaning having information that can put this together. You can rap it up. And that's why semantics have really very little to use. I said very little use. Not everyting is totally loused up, it is less relevant. I would never seek a science of communication, because I would only have limited tools to work with, even whatever I came up with would be of temporary use. But chemotropism, is a direct kind of communication. Some other ants follow, none other ants, but formic acid. And they have chemotropism which is more direct. There are ants that are warriors, there are ants that feed the mother ant, that's chemotropism. It's better than learning. You know what I mean? Because all the ants want is certain behavior. They don't know that, you can't ask an ant "what do you want?" That's why we can communicate some day with the ants, by changing the chemistry of the environment. We can change the tropism. You know what I mean? That would be communicating with ants. This is very broad, I'd like you to spin it, test it out, let me know what kind of reaction you get from that alone. I would be very interested by the Zeitgeist people, or people who are really interested in social change. And they say, "what do you recommend?" to evolve a communication system, within the physical referants of an existing culture, and understand when you're doing that, what you're doing. You're not really communicating, you're improving communication within the realm of a given culture. As long as you know what you're doing, it's alright. So I'd like to know the spin off from this type of delivery. Whether it's too difficult, whether people say "I disagree with you completely" well, they couldn't possibly agree, immediantly. But a person says "you've given me a lot for to think about, I can't answer that immediantly, but give me about 2 or 3 weeks to toss it around, I may have some questions then" - That's better than saying "I completely disagree with you." So I'm giving you tools - the advanced tools - so you have to stay away from trying to communicate with other people. You only communicate to whatever extent you can. Do you understand that? I'm speaking to you people here, if you understand it, I don't know how other people will react - that's the truth - I really don't know. It may be too heavy, it may be a system inbetween the systems - I don't know. But anyway, put it to test, I would be very curious, to know particularly people who call themselves open minded, which I don't believe exists. I don't believe I'm open minded or anybody else.
