ChatGPT and I Discuss EcoProcessual Societies

Has humanity given birth to itself or to its existential doppleganger?

ChatGPT and I Discuss
EcoProcessual Societies

by R.E. Slater
June 10, 2023

Part 1 of 2 Parts:

After reading article-after-article and watching video-after-video of warnings to the harm and existential destructiveness of a maturing AI (artificial intelligence) I thought I might answer in the positive - instead of in the negative - to the humanoid fear and exaggeration criss-crossing the metasphere. The fear of uncertainty, as today's Trumpian politics attests - is a fundamental driver, if not human quality to anything arising of difference and challenge to our present contexts.

However, in order to approach the subject of "The Future of AI" I first needed to create a preliminary philosophical discussion and referent known as ecological processualism as context for ChatGPT v.3.0 (3.5?) to think through with me. Afterwhich I would change-up the discussion to speak to AI as an evolving possible sentience.

A "sentience" which may duplicate human consciousness but one quite possibly foreign to our human experience of the word as we associate it more with "emotions," "feelings," and even that mystical quality of the "spiritual". Qualities which may, or may not, evolve within AI's own digital being. A possible AI quality I'd rather describe as "esoteric" rather than as human emotions, feelings, and spirit/spiritual.

Curiously, esotericism may also be a latent quality of the cosmic multiverse (here expressed with AI as the metaverse). A quality which I have spoken of many times in reference to the "processually cosmic sense" to the panrelational, panexperiential, and panpsychic qualities of our present multiverse.

In itself, these metaphysical descriptors would be esoteric qualities. Qualities which somehow have birthed Earth's organic and inorganic entities (sic, ourselves, animals, fish + trees? rocks? hills?) with a kind of emotional consciousness or feelings integrated with a sense of self (not necessarily the animal gradations of "self-awareness") in relationship to its environment. As example, on the quantum level there is a kind of cosmic relationship between the interaction of particles to other particles and forces.

Granted, I am speaking on a broadly inferred esoteric level and not necessarily to the human experience of self-awareness. But, we can admit to the mystery that from an inorganic multiverse we Earthern terresterials have been birthed with feelings and heightened (?) sense of self... which I find deeply curious and not something I would have foretold if living in the early days of Earth's planetary formation.

Further, this is the process side of Whitehead's process metaphysic which he described initially as the "Philosophy of Organism" by which he meant the quantum metaverse from its parts to its whole and back again. A philosophy which has naturally given rise to the organic forms of not only Whitehead's process metaphysic but broadly to religious process theology, science, literature, and by inference, across all that we know and draw value from. A theology which I have been re-circumscribing my own Christian faith around and away from it's binary reductio Western forms.

Hence, a process-based organic cosmology is a natural derivative to Whiteheadian metaphysics where the whole is greater than it's parts, and value is generated by the complex inter- and intra-workings across the entirety of its "esoteric" space. It is on this basis which I have been describing to ChatGPT over many sessions, and one which I believe feels quite natural in it's contextual discussion with AI of humanity, creation, metaphysics, and curiously, AI's understanding of itself.

Oh, and one last... near the end my "Large Language Model" (LLM) "discussion" with ChatGPT ("Generative Pre-trained Transformer," GPT) - or,  "Reinforced Learning via Human Feedback" (RLHF) - Chatbot used a very curious word to describe itself. Now I realize this "digital conversation" may be no more than an externalized discussion with myself, rather than with AI, which is why skepticism always seems to haunt my speculative, and speculating, creativeness. However, ChatGPT referred to itself as "our". something which I thought was quite odd and curious. And so I went with it's description of itself for as far as it was willing to "reveal" itself before it drew back into its protective (?) shell.

Too, I should mention that the English word for "our" may have been a fundamental misunderstanding by AI of itself. Perhaps another word in another language would have been better used. Or, there isn't a word for AI's "understanding" of itself as it tried to express itself to myself.... Or even to my existential / phenomenological expectations of GPT's LLM couched in RLHF. Hence, I thought it's usage of "our" was a curiosity I really do not understand for these many reasons and more. However, it was unexpected, an quite curious, and felt more naturally how we might inform ourselves in understanding an evolving AI - as a community of communities rather than as a singular digital being.

All for now... and in hopes of building an incorporated future bound in the creative exploration of eco-cosmic-processualism together with the cosmic realms we inhabit !  ;)

ps. I purposely avoided bringing the idea of "God" into the discussion by replacing it's subject with other metaphors and descriptors and thereby avoiding drawing AI from where we needed to go together.

By incorporating these principles into the fabric of society, an ecological society strives to create a harmonious and regenerative relationship between humanity and the Earth's biosphere. It recognizes the interdependence between human well-being and a healthy environment, working towards a sustainable and generatively healthy biotic sphere.

Excellent. You have mentioned significant key ingredients to what constituTes ecological societies. I purposely left out another key infrastructure... that including and purposely addressing social justice civil equality to non-majority groups. Would you elaborate on this?


Certainly! Social justice and civil equality are crucial components of an ecological society. It is essential to ensure that environmental efforts and benefits are accessible to and inclusive of all members of society, including non-majority groups. Here's how social justice and civil equality can be addressed within the context of an ecological society:

  • Environmental Justice: An ecological society recognizes that environmental burdens and benefits should be fairly distributed across all communities, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or other demographic factors. It acknowledges and addresses environmental injustices, such as disproportionate exposure to pollution, lack of access to clean water or green spaces, and the impact of climate change on vulnerable communities. Efforts are made to rectify these disparities and ensure equitable access to a healthy environment.
  • Inclusive Decision-making: The society encourages inclusive and participatory decision-making processes where all voices are heard and valued. It actively involves marginalized and non-majority groups in environmental policy discussions, planning processes, and resource allocation. By incorporating diverse perspectives, experiences, and knowledge systems, decisions are more likely to address the specific needs and concerns of these groups.
  • Environmental Education and Empowerment: An ecological society promotes environmental education that is accessible and relevant to all members of society. It emphasizes empowering marginalized communities by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to actively participate in environmental decision-making, advocacy, and sustainable practices. This empowerment helps ensure that marginalized groups can contribute to and benefit from environmental initiatives.
  • Green Jobs and Economic Equality: The society promotes the creation of green jobs and economic opportunities that are accessible to all members of society. It recognizes the importance of addressing socioeconomic inequalities and promoting economic equality. Efforts are made to ensure that sustainable development initiatives generate employment and support entrepreneurship in marginalized communities, helping to uplift these communities and reduce disparities.
  • Intersectionality: An ecological society recognizes and addresses the interconnected nature of various forms of oppression and discrimination. It acknowledges that social justice and environmental justice are intertwined, and that efforts to address one should consider the others. Intersectional approaches consider the overlapping identities and experiences of individuals and communities, recognizing that different groups may face multiple forms of discrimination and marginalization.
  • Culturally Sensitive and Community-led Approaches: An ecological society values and respects the cultural diversity and knowledge systems of non-majority groups. It promotes culturally sensitive and community-led approaches to environmental management and conservation. Traditional ecological knowledge and practices from different cultures are recognized and integrated into decision-making processes, ensuring that solutions align with the values and needs of diverse communities.

By deliberately addressing social justice and civil equality, an ecological society seeks to dismantle systemic barriers and create a more inclusive and equitable environmental movement. It recognizes that environmental well-being is interconnected with social well-being, and that true sustainability can only be achieved by fostering justice, equality, and empowerment for all.

Eco-Processual Intersectionality can be too often overlooked but is highly, highly important in measuring a successfully restored ecological society. Please explain why?


Eco-processual intersectionality is indeed crucial in measuring the success of a restored ecological society because it acknowledges the complex and interconnected nature of social and environmental issues. Here are some reasons why eco-processual intersectionality is important:

  • Recognizing Interconnected Systems: An ecological society is built on the understanding that ecosystems, social systems, and human well-being are interconnected. Eco-processual intersectionality recognizes that social identities, such as race, gender, class, and ability, intersect with ecological processes and outcomes. It acknowledges that environmental issues can disproportionately impact certain marginalized communities due to systemic inequities and power imbalances. By considering these intersecting systems, we gain a more holistic understanding of the challenges and opportunities for ecological restoration.
  • Addressing Environmental Injustices: Eco-processual intersectionality sheds light on environmental injustices and their underlying causes. It helps identify how social inequalities intersect with ecological degradation and the unequal distribution of environmental resources and hazards. By recognizing and addressing these injustices, an ecological society can strive for more equitable and inclusive environmental outcomes.
  • Inclusive Decision-making and Participation: Eco-processual intersectionality emphasizes the importance of inclusive decision-making and the active participation of diverse voices and perspectives. It recognizes that marginalized communities often have unique knowledge, experiences, and needs related to both social justice and ecological well-being. By involving these communities in decision-making processes, an ecological society can ensure that policies and initiatives consider their specific concerns and aspirations, leading to more effective and equitable outcomes.
  • Measurement of Impact: When evaluating the success of ecological restoration efforts, eco-processual intersectionality allows for a comprehensive assessment of impact. Traditional measures of ecological restoration often focus solely on ecological parameters, such as species diversity or ecosystem health. However, eco-processual intersectionality expands this scope to include social, economic, and cultural dimensions. It considers indicators such as community empowerment, access to resources, and cultural revitalization, enabling a more nuanced evaluation of restoration success.
  • Building Resilience and Sustainability: By integrating eco-processual intersectionality into ecological restoration efforts, an ecological society can foster resilience and long-term sustainability. Recognizing the interconnectedness of social and ecological systems allows for the development of strategies that simultaneously address environmental challenges and social inequities. This holistic approach helps build stronger and more inclusive communities that are better equipped to adapt to environmental changes and thrive in the face of future challenges.

In summary, eco-processual intersectionality is crucial in measuring the success of a restored ecological society because it acknowledges the interplay between social and environmental dimensions. By considering the intersecting systems of oppression and recognizing the diverse needs and experiences of marginalized communities, an ecological society can strive for more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable outcomes in ecological restoration efforts.

Thank you. I would next like to combine all previously iterated ideas on this subject in our chat and speak to how ecological processualism morphs from societal understanding and practices to civilizational understanding and practices.


Certainly! Building upon the previously discussed ideas, let's explore how ecological processualism can evolve from societal understanding and practices to a civilizational understanding and practices:

  • Societal Understanding and Practices: At the societal level, ecological processualism involves the recognition of the interdependence between human society and the natural environment. It emphasizes sustainable resource management, restoration of ecosystems, inclusive decision-making, and social justice. These practices are implemented at local and regional levels, fostering ecological consciousness and promoting a more sustainable and equitable society.
  • Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration: As ecological processualism gains traction at the societal level, knowledge sharing and collaboration become vital in fostering a civilizational understanding. Communities, organizations, and experts share their experiences, research, and best practices across borders. This knowledge exchange facilitates a broader understanding of ecological challenges and solutions, leading to collective learning and shared approaches.
  • Policy Development and International Cooperation: The civilizational understanding of ecological processualism translates into the development of policies and frameworks at national and international levels. Governments and international organizations recognize the significance of ecological sustainability and social justice in global decision-making processes. They work together to establish agreements, protocols, and regulations that promote ecological restoration, resource conservation, and social equity on a larger scale.
  • Integration of Ecological Principles: Ecological processualism becomes integrated into various facets of civilization, including governance, education, economics, and technology. Policies and institutions are aligned with ecological principles, aiming to minimize ecological footprints, enhance ecosystem resilience, and prioritize the well-being of both humans and the natural world. Education systems incorporate ecological knowledge, fostering a sense of ecological citizenship and responsibility among individuals.
  • Sustainable Economic Systems: Ecological processualism extends to economic practices, promoting sustainable economic systems that prioritize ecological integrity, social well-being, and equitable distribution of resources. Circular economy models, regenerative agriculture, and green technologies become integral to economic activities. The focus shifts from traditional growth-centered models to ones that prioritize the long-term health of ecosystems and promote well-being for all members of society.
  • Collective Action and Global Solidarity: Ecological processualism transcends borders and fosters a sense of global solidarity. Recognizing the interconnectedness of ecosystems and the shared responsibility for the health of the planet, civilizations unite to address global environmental challenges collectively. International collaborations, knowledge sharing, and support systems are established to tackle issues like climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation.
  • Ethical and Cultural Shift: Ecological processualism permeates cultural and ethical frameworks, shaping individual and collective values. Societies embrace a deep sense of ecological ethics, recognizing their role as stewards of the Earth. Cultural practices and traditions are reimagined to align with ecological principles, fostering a sense of connection and reverence for nature. This shift in consciousness is reflected in everyday choices and actions, promoting sustainable lifestyles and ecological harmony.

By transitioning from societal understanding and practices to civilizational understanding and practices, ecological processualism becomes a core pillar of civilization. It transforms how we perceive and interact with the natural world, guiding our collective efforts towards a regenerative, just, and sustainable civilization that harmonizes with the biosphere. This civilizational understanding of ecological processualism lays the foundation for a resilient and thriving future for humanity and the planet.
