Do you agree or disagree that the need to ace stem from a psychological need to be seen, accepted and feel appreciated and recogniced?There is an infinity of problems we have yet to solve that take skills we have yet to graze.
If people valued problem solving, they wouldn't be threatened by the automatization of well known solutions to well known problems.
For those who do, machines are a gain of otherwise-wasted time. Or just a good challenge. AIs didn't prevent people from playing chess. Some videogames are impossible to beat and people still find an interest in getting as close as possible. Cars go at 300mph and yet people keep running on flat surfaces as fast as they can. Because one is a matter of transportation, the other is a matter of self mastery and understanding. Some people keep painting photorealistic art, what's the point? It's a different goal than conveying or storing an information.
In the end, it's important to realize how a job that doesn't increase self mastery and understanding is a waste of time that should be automatized asap.
If so; do you suspect this need can be solved through therapy or biological treatment or brain stimulation which produces the feeling of reward?
Would this fake reward stimulation screw up our reward-hunting?
I also think fighting with npc's in videogames are boring for some reason, it doesn't matter how perfect the bot is. Even if I achieve some in game reward for it, it doesn't satisfy my need to interact with real humans, maybe not all humans feel the same way? Maybe some humans appreciate the bots more? If find the only reason to play chess with a computer is to learn a new skill but I'd much much mu h more rather learn that skill in real time from a human. It feels draining to learn things from a computer, book or video.
When the computer sets the resistance to low so that I get to win over it the achievement feels fake. When I set rsistance real high the computer allways tend to win and I end up feeling crappy with low selfesteem and dystopian thoughts about the future. For example the computer moves the horse faster then the blink of an eye. Thats not even fair in a million years.
I think in the future we will probably be able somehow to project our thoughts directly without having to type.
If we are going to have a chip planted into our brain how would that impact the growth of our brain, maybe we would need to get that chip as adults. I think it could be a potentional stressfactor on kids knowing this and also I wonder if that would not leave our brain more vulnerable to hackings.
There was people who got knee implants and biological rhings started to grow on the implants, kinda like when a ship sinks in the sea and things start to grow on the wreck it self, in this case like seaweed and shells or whatever it is. I wonder if that would happen in the pain too.
