Your body is a 3D interface

Your body is a 3D interface of your identity. The Identity exists on another plane of abstraction beyond the body. It is what many have called a soul. Your body represents information from your identity with physical conglomerations of atoms.

 The conglomeration can be viewed at a different level of abstraction as your cells and eventually your organs.
Just like the display of a computer shows us the information currently residing in its memory, at least most of it, your body displays actionable data from your identity.
Our human body represents the information necessary to identify a human entity, other animals in nature possess identities that are physically expressed as their bodies.
I think a major pursuit of the science of the future will be to extrapolate back to our identities from observing the structure, function and state of our bodies.
The chakra systems of the east have expressed this idea in the form of chakras being the inner motivators of the physical body and some have even gone on to draw visualizations of the structures of these chakras. I do not repeal the idea that there are chakras that we could see if we opened our vision but I declare that our identities are at a level abstraction such that our 3 dimensional brain will not be easily able to represent its structure spatially. The chakra system could be a sub-mechanism through which this abstract structure I call our identity acts through. It the image above, we could place this Identity as that which lies in the very center.

Next Steps Towards Strong Artificial Intelligence

If you follow current AI Research then it will be apparent to you that AI research, the deep learning type has stalled! This does not mean that new areas of application for existing techniques are not appearing but that the fundamentals have been solved and things have become pretty standardized.

At the edge of a cliff - Quantum Computing

Quantum computing reminds me of the early days of computer development (the 50s - 60s) where we had different companies come up with their different computer architectures. You had to learn how to use one architecture then move to another then another as you hoped to explore different systems that were better for one task than they were for another task.

Software of the future

From the appearance of the first programmable computer, the software has evolved in power and complexity. We went from manually toggling electronic switches to loading punch cards and eventually entering C code on the early PDP computers. Video screens came in and empowered the programmer very much, rather than waiting for printouts to debug our programs, we were directly manipulating code on the screen.
