Wir leben am Grunde eines Sees von aggressivem Sauerstoff, festgehalten durch die Schwerkraft eines im wesentlichen glutflüssigen Planeten, der in 150 Millionen km Entfernung in Hochvakuum um einem Glutball kreist, unglaublich einsam ist im All, wir bestehen aus und denken mit schleimigem Fleisch und bauen mit dem Geist aus Fleisch Geräte, die intelligenter sind als wir …“

In his book “Speculations Concerning the First Ultraintelligent Machine“ published in early 1965 (!) cryptologist Irving John Good expressed his thoughts about the ultraintelligent machine..
..“Let an ultraintelligent machine be defined as a machine that can far surpass all the intellectual activities of any man however clever.
Since the design of machines is one of these intellectual activities, an ultra-intelligent machine could design even better machines; there would then unquestionably be an „intelligence explosion,“ and the intelligence of man would be left far behind. Thus the first ultraintelligent machine is the last invention that man need ever make, provided that the machine is docile enough to tell us how to keep it under control.
It is curious that this point is made so seldom outside of science fiction. It is sometimes worthwhile to take science fiction seriously. “
„Intelligente Maschinen können intelligentere Maschinen bauen; dies führt unweigerlich zu einer Intelligenzexplosion, die den Menschen weit hinter sich lässt.“
So let’s come back to Science Fiction: What is Intelligence? Does it necessarily belong to plants, animals, humans or is it rather a form of logic anything can own? I assume a desk cannot be intelligent. A computer though is. Can we create something which is more intelligent than we as a species are? What would it mean for humanity?
My aim is to express Intelligence. To give Intelligence a look.
Born as a thought developing to an idea, growing to a plan and completed in the never ending infinity. Living Intelligence; an incident which cannot be tied to any species.
My idea: Visualizing Intelligence by filming certain chemical reactions which end up in a new creation; the growing Intelligence.
-No human interaction in the film – Intelligence is not solely created by humans though humans are an intelligent creature, I assume that Intelligence is not exclusively linked with human interaction.
-the reactions need to create something new
-the creation needs to move/grow
-the creation needs to be stable/durable – Once created Intelligence can not disappear anymore. (Let’s disregard the human characteristics of illness, harming our Intelligence through alcohol and suchlike)
