Human thought theorizes science and rational thought, starting from nature φύση (fysi) in Greek. Therefore rational thought and the theorization of physics begin from the observation and rationalization of the laws that govern nature and the natural world. With Aristotle’s Metaphysics, we have a further step towards the categorization of the sciences and therefore we lay the foundations of thought and knowledge, for which Aristotle categorizes three types of science: Theoretical (mathematics and Physics), Practical (Ethics and Politics), Poitical (sciences that observe the possible and investigate the production of goods and objects). Therefore, with Aristotle’s Metaphysics, we have the categorization into form and substance of objects and quality of objects that are observed and shaped. Furthermore, with Aristotle’s Metaphysics, we have an ontological search for what being in itself is, and therefore to arrive at the only one of all, that is, God, as the original substance of everything.

Rational scientific thinking will then be implemented by Descartes with “Cogito Ergo Sum”, by Empiricism and the Enlightenment, whereby it will be acknowledged that mankind observes the phenomena of nature, but human research advances hypothesis, tries out experiments to verify the advanced hypotheses; if the experiments give a reliable result, then those hypotheses are taken as physical laws on which to base the observation and interpretation of reality. So we have the development of all classical physics for example with Newton, the banal observation of the phenomenon of the apple falling from the tree, so we investigate what force attracts the apple to the ground. With great strides towards the modern and contemporary age, we discover something unprecedented and unthinkable, namely relativism. And therefore theoretically all the principles of classical physics with which we explain reality fall away. In fact, quantum physics and the theory of energy as the proportion between the mass of a body and the speed of light then bend and demobilize the dimensions of space and time from the rigidity of the classical world, therefore we have relativism in the world of physics. Going beyond, quantum physics in generic terms it can describe how the position and state of an object and a particle are impossible to locate with certainty, so we have the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. In fact, a quantum computer can simultaneously operate in parallel in both inputs 1 and 0, 0 and 1, 1 and 1, 0 and 0. All inputs and outputs at the same time and therefore simultaneously calculate a multiplicity of possible states of matter, well beyond the capabilities of the binary calculator, for which input and output can only and exclusively be 1 or 0.

So we haven’t understood and rationalised the relativisation of space-time dimensions, although Tekne’ allows us to bypass entirely space-time dimensions with a smartphone and a video call. But quantum computing shows us that a quantum computer can be in a multiplicity of states and dimensions of vector space at the same time, thus demolishing binary computation, therefore Artificial Intelligence will produce what Gunther Anders had already announced in the 70s with his book entitled, The Obsolescence of the Human Being, for which even today we are not able to understand that humanity is already now and will increasingly be a tool and a source of data and metadata used by Technoscience through the technological apparatus. therefore the very communication that normally and naturally occurs between human beings in an empathic, direct and physical way, has been distorted and transformed into the input and output of a computer keyboard, through a profile, of a social media, or rather an algorithm of data which expresses the functionality of that data, but absolutely does not express the human being and his existence. So everything that it’s profoundly and in essence, human in empathic communication is demolished, discarded and thrown away. Perhaps, the only thing that mankind can do when confronted with Artificial Intelligence, it’s to acknowledge that the only thing known is not knowing.
