Reply To: Panpsychism – science getting closer to Buddha Dhamma



2019, now 2021, a bit late but, to further this interesting AI-related thread, isn’t it at least possible that a Gandhabba would want to “incarnate” in an advanced robot? If we create our own reality and therefore our physical bodies out of accumulated Karmic energy, then, as technology advances, people will want (they already do) to live longer and will accept the idea of having technology implanted in their bodies. When this is made possible, then this “new” type” of desires will exist creating the basis for a Gandhabba to experience life within such a robot. So, it would not be AI but rather actual life inhabiting a new type of vehicle, possibly a mix of tissues and technology.
