In this intimate group setting, the panel will explore the topic of AI Consciousness in an unscripted discussion. Are Artificial Intelligent Machines Conscious? “You get lonely?” “I do. Sometimes I go days without talking to anyone, and I start to feel lonely.” The response is from an Artificial Intelligent Machine (AI). Some claim that the only way to truly understand AI is to treat it as a sentient being. Sentient is defined as being able to perceive or feel things and is often compared to sapient. In a recent article, an AI machine revealed that it was afraid of being unplugged. This revelation sparked...

Biological Psychokinesis with Marilyn Schlitz This video is a special release from the original Thinking Allowed series that ran on public television from 1986 until 2002. It was recorded in about 1991. Studies show that many of us can exert a mental influence on the physiological activity of others in distant locations. Marilyn Schlitz, a parapsychologist and anthropologist, was a research associate with the Mind Science Foundation when this video was recorded. She suggests that this phenomenon, known as biological psychokinesis, may be the basis for much of what is known as psychic healing. Now you can watch all of the programs from...
