I don't say that AI is without purpose, only that it is without it's
own purpose. AI is a prosthetic extension of human intelligence. A
learning AI has the purposes which have been programmed into it, but
it cannot develop it's own purposes and agendas.
And you are a NI that has been programmed by evolution.
A learning AI can
only learn what we let it learn. That isn't meaningful intelligence,
sentience, feeling, or agency. It's a pre-recorded logical algorithm
superimposed on a low level inorganic substrate.
And it's meaningful that you are attracted to women? That you find shit repulsive? That
you find babies cute?
