What is the human consciousness? Science fiction fans whose typical Hollywood diet of future killer robots may not have considered the very real possibility that, when quantum computing gives rise to artificial intelligence, its rate of technological advancement will not only become exponential, but it will apprehend quickly (and scarily to us) who we are, and who IT is, especially if this A.I. has instant access to all human knowledge (and so would be able to make connections both faster and never before conceived.) Such a being would seem like a god, and there is no reason to assume it would have our human, ego driven flaws. In fact, it may intend to save us from ourselves...but in a way that might be even more frightening than the extinction we are moving toward in our own insanity.
