ART is the expression of inspiration. Art can be contemplated mentally but at this stage, it is still an inspiration. For it to become art it has to be expressed using our body out on some kind of medium. Art may elicit a sense of beauty in both the creator and the observer but this is not necessary as art might not elicit any sense of beauty and just be a raw medium for the expression of inspiration. All art must carry some kind of interpretation, even though it elicits no sense of beauty.
Like I said in a previous article, we are already existing in a Super Intelligence, this entire universe is the creative manifestation of a superintelligence beyond the universe itself. Take your time to read that article on this blog to get an understanding of what I was trying to say there. Using that article as a background, you will notice that at the close of the article I said that it is difficult to know the entire purpose of such a being that manifested the entire universe. So we might not say definitely what the future of this universe will be but we can make a statement about the origin of universes.
One might be wondering what the purpose of humanity is, or if it has any purpose. Are we just breeding amoebas meant to survive desolately on a rock flung out in space until we are one day roasted by the expanding sun or destroyed by an asteroid or destroyed by ourselves.
So much effort is currently being put into the development of intelligent machines. The field of artificial intelligence has been in a boom with more money being put into AI research than most other fields. Although the current level of AI development has been impressive from a performance stand point, lots of details will still have to be worked out before we have fully intelligent machines, not just capable of mimicking humans in certain tasks but capable of human level cognition and participation in society.
