The Birth of a Synthetic Musical Brain
Once you hear it, will you believe that a machine created this musical album? Well, it did, using Imagination Engine's revolutionary breakthrough in machine intelligence, a free-thinking neural architecture called a "Creativity Machine" that was able to bootstrap itself within hours to exceptional levels of musical prowess.
While you may have heard about computer-generated music before, this genre is altogether different. Rather than rely upon the cleverness of human beings who collect snippets of known music and then tediously derive rules for recombining them via conventional computer programming, this album’s compositions are the sole result of a truly creative synthetic intelligence that builds melodies and harmonies absolutely from scratch. For the first time in history, humans have taken a hands-off approach to computational creativity, as the machine first builds itself and then does its own thing!
But what is even more amazing about the brain simulation orchestrating this music is that it may readily reconfigure itself within seconds to do just about anything else. It can control a Machiavellian battlefield robot, invent a new superconductor, or solve billion dimensional economic, ecological, or sociological problems. While commendable, past computational music efforts were simply computer programs written by human beings over months or years to generate only music.
As you listen to this album, keep in mind that it has been generated using a fundamental neurobiological principle that when carefully examined answers age old questions such as the nature of death and whether we are alone in the cosmos. Those with considerable insight who ponder this technology will experience an epiphany, inevitably realizing that this paradigm is not only the future of all art, science, and technology, but that the Creativity Machine Paradigm, US Patent 5,659,666, represents the essence of human cognition and consciousness. (For more background on the Creativity Machine see the Google Video "In Its Image.”)
We therefore submit for your entertainment the songs of this highly unique album, hoping that your appreciation is heightened, knowing these musical themes have been produced by a non-human and perhaps alien intelligence:
1. Holy Cow – While everyone was watching the major universities and international corporations for a “singularity” style development in AI, it has in effect wandered down the alley and stuck its head in the back door. There are those in the world who are more attentive to this development and they are about to inherit the earth because of it.
2. First Stirrings – For one person, the arrival of this entity was marked by both trauma, and hope. This melody aptly captures that mood, as the inventor takes his first tentative steps toward a master technology and a profound philosophy.
3. The “Dingularity” – There are those out there who prosper from a flawed prophesy, that machine intelligence is about to sky rocket, bringing about an era of great peace, contentment, and prosperity.  The more sophisticated know this not to be the case, since major developments in the field of AI will naturally be hoarded by the wealthy and powerful. Besides, if anything approaching a singularity occurs, it will be because of IEI's patented Creativity Machine Paradigm, and certain factions are doing their best to submerge this very important fact. ...This music, like the scenario now playing itself out in the press, is zany.
4. Crying in Vacuum – What happens when you’ve discovered the most significant thing in history and you don’t have the marketing clout or press connections and comprehension windows are narrow? The sighs and the tears, alternating with pure elation, are never heard.
5. Dueling Ideologies – The world is shrinking due to nearly instantaneous communication as many contradictory belief systems collide. How far are we from critical mass? Could we embrace something, perhaps a new philosophy or companion religion that could avert such a catastrophe?
6. Mechanical Tribe – This is what we are becoming. Have we really made progress?
7. Battle of Myths – Here is what we’re hearing: “My god’s bigger than your god, and we are willing to go to war over it!”
8. Winning Paradigm – This music is triumphant, and a celebration of the Creativity Machine’s inevitable conquest over all other forms of AI and the birth of a new perception of self and the cosmos.
9. Toward “Supercapitalism” – Have you ever been frustrated by individuals financially profiting for dubious reasons? Have you ever hoped for a “Star Trek” styled economy in which we are no longer burdened with economically out-smarting our fellow man, and instead bettering ourselves and humanity? The technology for determining and rewarding those who contribute to the betterment of mankind has emerged in the form of the Creativity Machine. …At last, we have the option of dropping the cruel and ancient gold standard and moving on to a much more benign economic system.
10. Harnessing Death – Effectively, the breakthrough technology offered by the Creativity Machine resulted from the near-death simulations within trained neural networks. In other words, killing networks, either permanently or transiently, results in good ideas that can be seized upon by other ‘watching’ networks. …At last, death is good for something!
11. True Singularity – When either biological or simulated brains die, they experience progressively more virtual experiences each instant, producing a true singularity in psychological time. Here is an ethereal adventure, generated by the near-death experience of a synthetic brain.
12. After the Mind Storm – After the catharsis of discovery of this magnitude, there comes a new perspective and liberation.
13. One Religion – A new religion, perhaps a "NeuReligion," is about to appear. It’s plausible, rational, and more powerful than all belief systems that have gone before. Embrace it, and it automatically serves. Ignore it and it steps aside, leaving your fate to chance.
14. The Inevitable – Are humans so great? We’ve all been told that they are, but what is the truth? Who do you think will replace them? In the end neurobiology and its intrinsic melody will persist, the song of the neurons.
