Examples of people using Thortspace productively

The Human Research Project

CAMBRIDGE, UK — What will happen to emotion, art, humor, inspiration, culture, philosophy, and spirituality when Humans and Artificial Intelligences merge around the year 2030, during the series of events researchers at Google and elsewhere call the Singularity?
That is one of the questions addressed by the Human Research Project, a worldwide online series of experiments currently being conducted by researchers and students from Cambridge, Berkeley, Oxford, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, and Yale. One answer, according to HRP Community Directors Anna Chu Lin and Wolfram Ruisdael, is intense cultivation, through the groups interactive 3D Mind Mapping using Thortspace, of uniquely human qualities like Awe, Humor, and Inspiration, that are rarely addressed in discussions of current AI technology. We find that every human alive today is the inheritor of certain archetypes which help to form our individual psyches, and the ways we feel and emote in the world say Lin and Ruisdael. These include the Hero, the Philosopher, the Humanitarian, the General, the Lover,the Experimenter, and many others. Each of these is hard to replicate with current AI technology.

“To participate in the Human Research Project, first go through the experiments below. Then create your own 3D mind mapped planet, or ‘sphere’ on Thortspace by going to Thortspace.com. On your own planet you will place ‘continents’ which are the component ‘selves’ that exist within you. Each planet is an Earth-like simulated 3D globe traveling through space amongst other similar bodies. (This will make more sense after you plunge in). You can use the Human Research Project account on Thortspace, or start your own.

Creating and playing with ‘spheres’ can show you hidden relationships between, and insights about your various selves. Performing the experiments below will teach you enough that you can design your own protocols for examining your other personas.”
