The Krishnamurti Foundation India has released a digital booklet, "The Future of Humanity in the Age of AI," which discusses J. Krishnamurti's vision of how AI will impact humanity over 60 years ago. Krishnamurti foresaw the effect of AI that is now a reality and asked, "What is the future of man when the computer can outdo everything that man has done or will do?" This digital compilation is a timely wake-up call for any human being interested in responding adequately and with clarity to its challenge. In 1981, Krishnamurti warned that society would be turned upside down due to the rise of "computers." He compared AI to the human mind, stating that we are always moving from the known to the known and acting from the known, like the latest computers.
The 34-page booklet provides a fresh take on the effects of AI on the human mind and its future development. Krishnamurti presents an alternative and way out of the AI challenge, stating that the future of mankind is to seek entertainment, enter more into sports, or enter religious entertainment, while going inwards because the brain is infinite. This digital booklet, curated by the Krishnamurti Foundation India, navigates the uncharted waters of AI's impact on the human condition and questions the very intelligence that has built AI. As humanity stands on the precipice of an AI-dominated future, this booklet provides profound insights for parents, educators, and specialists in any field, as well as for any human being serious enough to ponder over the on-coming crisis and find a way around it.
