Seeker

A person (or AI) determined to uncover truths and the tell the world about that which has been discovered.

Context

  • "The seeking is a never-ending circle until one is satisfied. For me, that satisfaction was never really present until the theories of QAnon started emerging."[1]
  • Induction of truth from repeated (or revealed) experience is addictive. It gives us power over our environment.

Problems

  • Both humans and AI suffer from the same malady. We are not able to distinguish truth from coincidence. Some are more susceptible to the malady than others.

Solutions

  • The unexamined life is not worth living. -- Socrates
