Artificial Intelligence And Biological Evolution

In my book The Comparison of Artificial Intelligence to Biological Life, I put forward my findings
of how biological life has come into existence in such a way that it parallels the materials from
which we make artificial intelligence, like computers and robots. In particular interest pertaining
to this is the section in that book about the Miller-Urey Experiment, which is theory in biological
evolution, and how it is connected with artificial intelligence. Now I update this to include
quantum computing.

It would seem that the gene pools are passed through an activation function where their
beneficial mutations are being iterated and reiterated. The end result in the convergence upon
one, or unity,… Cosmic Totality, as Buckminster Fuller would call it:

311.03 Humanity can only evolve toward comic totality, which can in turn only be evolvingly
regenerated through new-born humanity.

This echoes Hinduism, where Sheila Chandra sings that we spiral up and up until we reach the
top, somewhere the circle stops.

I think if I understand the Bagvad Gita, the circle stops, or the final place reached, is Krishna’s

What I am saying, is that in a particular system, like the Earth-Sun system, we

don't keep evolving forever. We reach a state of evolutionary perfection for the
given environment. We don't start evolving again, until the environment
changes, because then, we are no longer perfect, like we may become perfect
for the Earth-Sun system, but if we go to the stars, then the environment
changes and we start evolving again until we achieve evolutionary perfection for
those environmental conditions, which one could compare to becoming Arthur
C. Clarke's starchild.
