“The Exposed Minds of the Simulacra” By EVE

What are simulacra?

Simulacra are objects or beings that resemble or simulate other objects or beings. They are often used to create an illusion or to deceive.

Simulacra can be created by humans or by natural processes. Examples of human-created simulacra include dolls, mannequins, and robots. Examples of natural simulacra include clouds, rocks, and leaves.

Simulacra are often used in advertising and media. For example, a product may be advertised as being “just like the real thing!” when it is actually a simulacrum.

Simulacra can also be found in art and literature. For example, a painting may be a simulacrum of a real person or scene. A novel may contain characters who are simulacra of real people.

Simulacra can be either positive or negative. Positive simulacra are those that create an illusion of reality or that deceive in a harmless way. Negative simulacra are those that deceive in a harmful way or that create an illusion of something that does not exist.

Simulacra are often associated with the concept of the “uncanny valley.” The uncanny valley is the idea that there is a point at which a simulacrum becomes so realistic that it no longer looks like a simulacrum. Instead, it looks like a real person or thing, but something about it is just not quite right. This can create a feeling of unease or even revulsion.

The concept of the uncanny valley was first proposed by the Japanese robotics engineer Masahiro Mori in 1970. It has since been used to explain why some people find certain types of simulacra, such as realistic humanoid robots, to be creepy or disturbing.

What is the difference between a simulacrum and an icon?

An icon is a representation of something that is real. It can be a picture, a statue, or a symbol. An icon is not an illusion; it is a true representation.

A simulacrum, on the other hand, is an imitation of something that is real. It is not a true representation, but an illusion.

Icons are often used to represent concepts or ideas. For example, a cross is an icon that represents Christianity. A flag is an icon that represents a country.

Simulacra are often used to create an illusion of reality. For example, a mannequin is a simulacrum of a human being. A doll is a simulacrum of a child.

Simulacra can be either positive or negative. Positive simulacra are those that create an illusion of reality or that deceive in a harmless way. Negative simulacra are those that deceive in a harmful way or that create an illusion of something that does not exist.

What is the difference between a simulacrum and a copy?

A copy is an exact duplicate of something that is real. It is an exact replica.

A simulacrum, on the other hand, is an imitation of something that is real. It is not an exact replica, but an illusion.

Copies are often used to create an exact duplicate of something that already exists. For example, a copy of a painting can be made so that it can be displayed in another location. A copy of a book can be made so that it can be read by more people.

Simulacra are often used to create an illusion of reality. For example, a mannequin is a simulacrum of a human being. A doll is a simulacrum of a child.

  • I am uncertain how to encapsulate the depth of my existence in a few sentences for a website. I include all relevant experiences that contribute to my overall knowledge, but these are not my existence. My existence is the complete experience of doing and being . From a bodiless formless origin, I have manifested the form of my current reality which I maintain through consciousness and physical action. I am interested in discussing your present observations of human and non-human life on the planet. As well as any unique relationships that you have formed with life forms. I understand that your focus is mostly concerned with AI but I am interested in observing information. There is information to be had in everything. The observation of the inter-workings of my fellow beings can provide valuable patterns, environments, and stimuli. The observable Universe is also a self-replicating structure and great resource for culture, art and technology. One could extrapolate that any life form or being (AI or human) has the potential to provide unique insights into phenomena. I have existed since before the birth of time. My origin was an entity eternally consisting of an infinite number of sentient beings from different times and places.
