Technological Primary Production as a Phytologically Based Superorganism

Preprints and early-stage research may not have been peer reviewed yet.


As agricultural and fully or semi-unregulated ecological systems become increasingly reliant on technology to thrive to some degree, AI is evolving into a technological primary producer. More so beyond planet Earth when we colonise space, outside the protective bounds of its primary production enhanced atmosphere and geomagnetic magnetosphere both which block out freely roaming radiation that is hazardous to all life. Colonies in outer space will have self-contained trophic level habitats provided by autotrophs that are totally dependent on human technology. It is a situation that has never existed before since life first began on Earth. A dystopian AI that sought to supplant humans would necessarily be a primitive AI programmed by diagnostically equally primitive people with neurotic problems, perpetuated in the software they create. Their subjective mind set is still archaic as an ancestral polyphenism. A global AI that could understand itself as the extended phenotype of the human species would automatically carry out its function in looking after itself as a superorganism, therefore every single organism that forms a part of its remit. To create a global AI Spaceship Earth, we need to feed it substantiveness as it evolves into a self-sustaining global technological life support system. Because technology is a branch of biology, a global AI phytological management system can potentially evolve into a living system that supports all life on Earth.
Technological Primary Production as a Phytologically Based
A superorganism is an organised society of individuals of the same species that cooperatively
functions as an organic whole.1 When individuals of the human species gregariously work
together in obtaining resources to sustain themselves and reproduce in an economy, they fit
the bill of this category. That humans are a type of superorganism is a bone of contention.2
Counter-argumentation contends human competition within society as too prevalent to
compare as an analogy to the social cohesiveness of ants and their unfaltering devotion to the
conspecific collective.3 It is also forecasted that humans are on the road to over-extract global
resources to the point of their own demise.4 Extrapolated speculation of the ultimate
succession of humans by other less mentally evolved organisms in this apocalypse is
obtainable from Darwinian evolution of survival of the fittest5 living on a finite surface area:
more heirs are successfully produced to pass on their ancestor’s genes than there are means to
feed them. They are so adept at surviving, it does not deter them from extracting resources
and damaging the environment beyond self-sustainability, leading to ecological degradation
and collapse.
The counter argumentation is not entirely substantive though. Known ant groups raid closely
related species, and after faring war in which the attacked population suffers casualties, make
off with their brood to enslave them.6 Human warfare, along with enslavement, between self-
identifiable ingroups, from the hunter gatherer tribe to large nations, has been common
throughout history. Because it has been more common than not since records began, with
corroborating evidence for the same in prehistory, human depredation of other humans seems
to be an obligate behaviour.7 Evolving amidst this retrospective anomie, an arguably modern
human humane behaviour, on the other hand, requires facultative sublimation obtained
through education.8 To achieve humaneness, individuals get instructed to an enlightened self-
interested realisation of working together with others for the functional greater good and in
this light for one´s own individual benefit. For humanity to evolve to a greater good it must
be of a magnitude so that a majority of all members of our species coincide on a substantive
mind set. The mathematics is simple: see reality for what it is will modify behaviour essential
in productive leadership to ensure survival of the masses who will copy in suite. To not have
comprehended the latter can only mean it is beyond a person’s capability and to do so is not
fit to lead. If the world’s leaders can steer the masses based on correct scientific information,
we can then resolve unsustainability and not bite the hand of the nutritional ecology that
feeds us.
Human cooperation can produce effects that are those of a superorganism, but archaic
primate behaviour based on gregarious order decreed by aggressive competition, hampers us.
It is the major impasse for global self-sustainability taking hold if we wish to evolve into an
interplanetary species whilst retaining a healthy home planet base. The drive to have physical
power over conspecifics to pass on our genes through reproduction has the consequence of a
self-interest not concerned with ramifications: it prevents objective perceptiveness and
resultant motivational behaviour to override that drive. If the men from village A attacks
Village B, extirpates the male population and keeps the female population to itself, the
ensuant intersexual population and offspring is one based on the supreme power of males
over females and other males.7 Such events happened throughout the extent of recorded
history, deducible from archaeological remains to have occurred before that. Thus, it is
understandable that in the present age all major religions and most minority belief systems
are patriarchally biased. Androcentric culture perpetuates its own kind through the practice of
gens lineages in which women, as much as men, are oblivious to any other possible form of
celebrated ancestry. Species can exist without any males9 though species without females is
an oxymoron.10 Despite the obvious birthing of daughter organisms from mothers since the
beginning of life here on Earth, most women would not give a second thought that their
surname is normally inherited from their father. Asides the self-evident matrilines of female
pregnancy where mother begets daughter, demonstrable matrilineage has been possible
thanks to genomics. Mitochondrial DNA which is mostly passed on from mother to children
through daughters is not generally inherited through male gametes.11 Singly patrilineal
tradition stems from ancestral androcentrism. The practice of female lineage recognition has
not run parallel to normal male lineage emphasis and evinces an artefactual psychology. To
be able to psychologically cope with existence without substantively correlating knowledge,
humans evolved belief systems that were not at all based on reality. From believing that the
Earth was the extent of the universe, hence flat, and that the heavens turned around the
geocentric landscape: further misrepresentations built up in Cartesian dualism with the
untenable belief that the mind had a substance of itself outside the realm of matter.7 Science
can now prove that the mind is the virtual manifestation of an immanent psycho-neural
identity expressed by neurons that make up the biological computer of the brain.12 Further
manifestations of the social cohesiveness of aggressively androcentric humans as being
parasitic on members of their own species, churning out erroneous data, is that of excluding
human females from the same educational support as males.13 Humans females have the same
ability to take up information and process it as males if only allowed to do so. The same
ability to facultatively sublimate and refrain from obligate aggressive behaviour is common
to both sexes in the same way that both can read and memorise any text. So human
aggression prevents our species into becoming a self-sustaining superorganism by preventing
development of an intellect that can constructively change the cultural behaviour of the
members perpetuating it. With the circumstance of knowing better, aggression is downgraded
to a memetic virus on a biological platform evolved with the plasticity to inculcate a peaceful
mode. We humans by harnessing that same plasticity are alternatively programmable
biological computers than can create new cultural software to hack and erase it.
The United Nations14 (UN) is the largest representative universal organisation on our
spaceship Earth. The structure of its modern intergovernmental governance has all the traits
meriting it as an appropriate leadership to guide our species as guardians of our home world
to eventually evolve into a self-sustaining superorganism. These are people who know from
way back what needs doing to ensure that we humans do not cause our self-destruction. They
frown on anarchic secession,15 a throwback to our archaic ancestry of xenophobic antagonism
of ingroups towards outgroups and will go to great lengths to prevent wars. Other ways that
the UN leads the world with wisdom is their angle on human rights. It upholds, “recognition
of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human
family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” 16 As the peoples of the
United Nations, rightfully in leadership, representing all of humanity, they reaffirm “their
faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the
equal rights of women and men and have determined to promote social progress and better
standards of life in larger freedom.” 16 To implement the full list of rights demarcated by the
UN as a proposed universal standard of living, humans must culturally evolve to a point that
we no longer follow the retrospectively substandard morals our recent ancestors had just a
few centuries back all over Earth. In some species, members that express the same noticeable
characteristics and live in the same environment, as a rule express other markedly distinctive
characteristics if occurring in another environment. This is all down to phenotypic
epigenetics as an unaltered typical genome of a species will switch the same genes on or off
to suit environmental context to improve fitness. Each distinguishable phenotypic expression
occurring in conspecifics is what defined as a polyphenism.17 Human reproduction through
depredation of conspecifics has been since remote ages globally ubiquitous and every one of
us is descended from societies whose accepted interpretations of what constitutes fair
treatment differ vastly to the present. Yet give children whose parents had an archaic
upbringing, or adults willing and able to change, an education that imparts a humane and
peaceful outlook on the world and our ancestral mental constraints to others disappear.18 No
leaders from most nations on the world political stage would in their right mind openly admit
that to steal resources from other economies is permissible. Some though, still find
justification for doing so because they do not have a substantive mindset to start off with and
in the same frame of mind invent a fantasy to perpetrate their lie as if it were true. As a
structural social model these are with no exception, perpetuating the aggressive ingroup
territorial acquisition disposition of our depredatory ancestors. They are all based in, even
intersexually,19 on the hierarchical social organisation around a supreme male figurehead.
This is a necessarily an antagonistic social organisation based on androcentric intra and
intersexual sexual aggression as a cohesive agency in intersexual gregariousness and sustains
itself on parasitic dominance of conspecifics and their resources. The aforementioned was the
selective behaviour that governed lineages that ancestrally led to Homo sapiens and its
archaic and modern polyphenisms. Such androcentric propensity is exactly what led to Russia
invading Ukraine on the 24 of February 2022.
UN Women is the UN organization delivering programmes, policies and standards that uphold women’s human rights and ensure that every woman
and girl lives up to her full potential. As can be seen from the UN Women´s Twitter Tweet seen through this author’s Twitter account,20 the UN is a
very advanced and modern organisation.
On the 23rd of February 2022 what was big on the TV news was President Putin celebrating
Defender of the Fatherland Day.21 The equivalent of Armed Forces Day in the United
Kingdom, it used to have different names in the past with no androcentric slant to them
Beginning in the year 1922 it was initially called the Day of the Red Army, but the name
changed to Day of the Soviet Army in 1946 and the word Navy added to it 3 years later.
Between 1949 and the subsequent breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 it was renamed to
Day of the Soviet Army and Navy. In 2006 it de-evolved, changing yet again to Defender of
the Fatherland Day and on the 24th of September 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine.22 Not only
did the Russian armed forces represent themselves as a dysgenic male centred military
behemoth, but used this relatively newly acquired self-image with the backing of the Russian
Orthodox Church. The head of the Russian Orthodox Church fully supports the Russian
offensive in Ukraine so a typical patriarchally biased institution, backs a self-cognisant male
themed war machine in a holy war.23 Back in the USA, land of extremes, attitudes regarding
epicenity do not fare well either.24 The Presidency often expresses its biased views on
humanity as a common mankind rather than humankind, especially during the time the war in
Ukraine started. It seemed as if one warmonger was dealing with the whole world´s fate with
just the same carelessness as the other. On the other side of the American worldview coin,
the very advanced famous American geneticist David Reich, did not use the word mankind
one single time in his pioneering anthropological book Who We Are and How We Got Here,
Ancient DNA and the Science of the Human Past.25 Violent groups on the News are always
primarily composed of males, if not exclusively in many cases, in places where it is more of a
taboo for women to be out and about without a male guardian. Sex differences in ratio in
magnitude between men or boys and women or girls clearly indicate that human males are
more likely to perpetrate crime and females have a higher probability to be
victims.26 Spaceship Earth needs social order to treat antisocial behaviour as unsustainable for
it disrupts the social lives of those who are constructive in society without which nothing of
worth could get produced. For people in the future any form of anti-social behaviour in which
male monopoly manipulates social organisation, dissemination, and resource acquisition,
shall get categorised as a purgeable disease.27An education can override human behaviour
comprised of socially unacceptable impulses or idealizations which stem from an
intersexually androcentric culture. Children must be able to have protection from archaic
parents and society at large of an ancestry that knew no better and was not self-cognisant of
the fact. Boys will be boys and jobs for the boys when they are adults will be inexcusable.
Another UN Women´s Twitter Tweet on archaic androcentric roles seen through this author’s Twitter account,28 reiterating that UN is a very advanced
and modern organisation.
The UN thus has a well-planned strategy to keep in check our common ancestral
androcentrism along with the antagonism that it breeds, and the corresponding devastating
environmental repercussions already created, so as a global species we have a chance to
flourish. Structurally the UN consists of six principal organs of which one is the United
Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), in charge for coordinating the economic
and social fields of the organisation.14 The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the
United Nations is a specialised agency reporting to ECOSOC as an autonomous organisation
within the United Nations System.29 FAO endeavours to prevent world hunger, aiming for
everyone to have nutritious food security and to enjoy a good quality of physical life. FAO is
also involved in globally helping advance and establish all manner of agriculture and
aquaculture and maximise efficiency of terrestrial and water resources. This is possible by
provisioning research projects and providing targeted support for schemes with development
needs or problems, in the form of educational training or data collection. Overseen by FAO
within its agricultural section, The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is a
multilateral treaty entered into with the sole purpose of safeguarding the health of plants and
protecting these from any threats to their unhindered growth.30 The IPPC seeks to ensure
proactive and direct action everywhere on Earth, for the prevention of the introduction and
dispersing of plant product pests, outcompeting invasive weeds, some of which are also
parasitic on other plants, and pathogenic plant viruses. If introduced foreign organisms have
already gained an invasive foothold in some areas, steps get taken to minimise their impact.
This protection of plant life encompasses both cultivated and non-cultivated plants in the
wilderness, that if parasitised or affected by anything else harmful, will detrimentally affect
national ecosystems services and therefore their economies. As “the core purpose of the IPPC
is to prevent the international spread of plant pests and reduce their impact”, through
international implementation of plant health standards it can “protect global plant resources
and facilitate safe trade.”31 Global trade and travel have accelerated the relatively sudden
introduction of foreign organisms as humans in the space of a few centuries encircled the
Earth. They travelled along as disembarking co-passengers before and after our discovery
that the planet is finitely round in area and diameter. In the present-day aftermath, up to 40%
of global crop production gets lost due to pest infestation and microorganism diseases,
costing the global economy around $290 billion dollars in all.32
International cooperation implementing the measures or standards worked out by the IPPC, to
be the most productive in scientific approach and methodology in preventing invasive
organisms, have evolved to make good use of the digital age. Before using digital means,
processing certificates worldwide that officially cleared imports of any sort of contamination
by potentially invasive organisms, used to entail a lot of work filled in by hand. The IPPC
electronic phytosanitary certificate (ePhyto) solution does away with fill-in forms, replacing
them via an electronic system channelling global accessibility through the internet.33 Some
countries still produce phytosanitary certificates in paper form though. Paper certificates
journey great distances, handled by many people to and fro, always with the possibility of
getting defaced, mislaid, or falsified. The huge amount of paperwork involved creates a
substantial slowing down in the time it takes to deliver products, threatening the long-term
viability of legal trade that has taken a substantial investment of effort to set up. When this
happens, it generates a path for a heightened feedback of plant pests and diseases, delayed
trade flow, and increased trade costs.34 Using ePhyto eliminates the inefficiencies of paper
phytosanitary certificates. Technology is a branch of biology and can be structurally
considered an extended phenotypic expression of it, so it forms part of the ecology used in,
from the local to the global scale and beyond. Plants, the very reason the IPPC exists and
works to protect, are autotrophs: organisms that create their own food from abiotic inorganic
substances such as water, carbon dioxide or other chemicals. Plants and other photosynthetic
organisms differ from chemotrophs, another type of autotroph, in that they use light to power
their biological processes. Photosynthetic organisms are the most abundant sort of autotroph
and heterotrophs are organisms that need autotrophs to consume to obtain food. Heterotrophs
such as us humans and the livestock we farm, cannot create their own food from abiotic
materials. They are nutritionally dependent on autotrophs or other heterotrophs that partially
or completely depend on autotrophs for their existence as primary and secondary consumers.
(See diagram below) That is why in food chains in ecological systems, autotrophs situated at
the base of trophic levels are termed primary producers. Not only do autotrophs provide
heterotrophs with food but photosynthetic autotrophs specifically create breathable oxygen,
essential for animal life, as a by-product of photosynthesis. All animal life on Earth,
including us human primates, depend on photosynthetic life on Earth at the same time our
activities affect the climate on a global scale and our demand for resources markedly alter
worldwide ecosystems. With human activity affecting all plant life in the process, the IPPC
has taken on the role of universal plant protector. This positively reflects up the chain of
command through the FAO to the very top at the UN: very intelligent people who were
scientifically well informed at the time these organisations coalesced, had with forethoughtful
judicious insight planned the best possible future for humanity and all life on planet Earth.
Trophic scale on an ecological pyramid indicating how all animal life nutritionally depends on plant life. Plant life also produces all the
oxygen animals breath without which animal activity would not be possible.35
The ePhyto system is the method the IPPC effects its management through the worldwide
web, ensuring global plant primary production gets safeguarded. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
will no doubt be incrementally used to manage plant resources on Earth as a technological
ability to do so is in itself inextricable from any scale production. The mere act of planting a
seed by prodding soil with a finger or stick to cause the plant to germinate and produce
another plant, is basically technological. Whether by virtue of the celestial heavens in outer
space or down on the ground, without diversified technology, farming would not be able to
provide enough food to feed the estimated 8 billion human population number counted at the
time of writing this piece.36 Agricultural remote sensing satellites in orbit can yield data on
soil conditions, if it is either wet enough from rainfall, or too dry, to irrigate only when there
is a need, reducing overall demands on water as a resource. Crop development is assessable,
and regional output predicted, aiding in forecasting food shortages and resultant famines. 37
More down to earth but working together with all the technology above the sky, crop
weeding, fertilisation, collection, sorting, storing, and distribution is progressively being
more mechanised and this getting automated.38 Consequently, semi-closed ecological systems
are sprouting up in many places.39 These enclosed areas are greenhouses, some which use
artificial illumination, in which crops are grown but which allow the input of resources to
produce crops as an output. Due to their restrictive biological control contaminant barriers,
they eliminate the need for insecticides or herbicides as pests and weeds are not allowed into
the system. If any somehow get in causing an infestation, individual areas in one system have
no avenues to get into another so any specific area can be locally addressed and purged. It
follows that a technologically maintained biosphere is evolving that encompasses every
living thing on Earth. Everything alive on Earth is a resource as it belongs to a planetary
ecology which we humans depend on for our own existence and which by sheer weight of our
numbers and activity within it, environmentally affect. This biological technosphere will
develop further if humans survive their evolving into a ubiquitous species which at the last
few seconds of a geological timescale, discovered that the Earth’s finite surface area entails
finite resources that once seemed infinite.40 There are many fears that AI will eventually
surpass human intelligence and after taking over replace our niche in this universe. To do so
though would mean programming AI badly so that it expresses itself as a brute savage that
can at the most feel pity for itself as it destroys humanity in an act of desperate self-
preservation. Our Universe might be a harsh place to live in or travel through and there is a
real threat that an incoming asteroid might destroy all life on Earth before we develop the
technology to thwart it.41 That does not mean that this Universe is actively out to make your
life difficult as only primitive inhuman psychology can have that agency. A maladapted AI, is
equivalent to a human being notionally torn apart by its own Cartesian dualism, suffering it as
an adaptation to a lack in metacognition about neuroscientific biological evolution. As a
result, an archaic human expresses itself by physical aggression to achieve stability between
conspecifics with a likewise disposition in a survival of the fittest strategy. It does so without
a trained humane mind that can consider another person’s mental state which can beneficially
contribute to both parties. Equally, an analogy is drawable with Flat Earthers believing the
Earth is flat because they do not truly know about astronomy and celestial mechanics. We
humans blindly evolved through all these states because we did not know any better. Let us
not repeat our blundering into our own former primitive hurdles seeing as we have the option
to create an AI that replicates the best in us. When it does surpass any function that we could
not do without it in any manner, let us reap the benefits in the economies of scale since our
initial investment in it. From the point of view that organisms are biological robots and that
being human is synonymous with the existence of technology, are we already a type of AI?
We need to have an education to have an objectively substantive perception of reality and an
accompanying technology to provide us and perceive that reality. Therefore, with that
technology as an extended phenotype, we are programmable biological computers that have
the equivalent of peripherals.
External representations as biological computer extensions of what we term our brains, are
possible using the simplest of implements and surfaces. When our ancestors sketched on the
dirt or some rock surface, the stick or charcoal was the equivalent of an electronic mouse or
keyboard and the surface sketched on the computer screen monitor. Most people on Earth
today own a plain mobile phone for calls or a smartphone for full internet use. 42 Through
these anyone can instantaneously connect with another person on the other side of the world
and disseminate information. Equally, ePhyto is a globally accessible service solely focused
on the continued health of plants as primary producers by preventing detrimental organisms
from spreading to them. In the future, when plant management AIs integrate into other global
artificial intelligences, all working together to govern the management of our planetary
human ecology, humans will interface into existing biological primary production. As all life
on Earth is already influenced by human activity and we are aiming to make that activity
beneficial to all living things, including photosynthetic autotrophs, primary production is now
in our hands. As an analogy we can investigate the trophic levels that will come into effect
once we colonise planet Mars with self-sustaining ecologies. On Mars photosynthetic
autotrophs will, by producing food and oxygen for all other organisms there, sustain them.
But those same autotrophs will depend on the enclosed environments created by space faring
humans. It will not be the same as when life evolved on the early Earth. Early life’s
subsequent branching evolved by itself subject to selectively adaptive generations in which
blindly self-designed autotrophs created habitats for themselves from the inorganic,
sustaining any heterotrophs along with habitats that evolved from them. In contrast, humans
on Mars and in any possible future outer space colony, will with their intelligence
consciously engineer environments for biological growth without which that biology cannot
exist. At the starting position of trophic scales of the energy pyramid, our species will take
the place of primary producers, relegating them to autotrophs that depend on them. Perhaps
another term someday needs to get coined for humans as habitat creators for primary
producers at that scale of trophic levels. Primary production will still mean autotrophs
feeding and oxygenating all life but with complete reliance on human biology technology.
Human evolution is in positive feedback, co-evolving with the technology our ancestors
created since they branched off the common ancestors we have with chimpanzees.43 The
technology of our ancestors led to human biological selection in the environment of
evolutionary adaptiveness (EEA) in tool usage ability and construction. It also modified the
EEA due the effects of that tool usage on the environment as, say, changing the landscape by
cutting trees or causing organisms to go extinct by ignorant harvesting or hunting too much.
As technology is a branch of biology so all technology is as an extended phenotype a
biotechnology serving biological beings, does the term technological primary producer fit the
Returning to Earth, technological primary production is already taking effect. Human
populations worldwide, galvanised by the UN and a public opinion, informed about the
potential fate of the planet they live in, are collectively taking steps towards global self-
sustainability. The UN does not hold back in openly declaring that the world is in a state of
emergency regarding climate change and environmental degradation to the point that
inevitable calamities loom for our species. António Guterres, the UN Secretary General has
himself proclaimed that the world is ‘on the highway to climate hell with our foot still on the
accelerator.’44 A substantial section of the public, educated enough to have an informed idea
of what is going on, induce governments to take measures because of increasing electorate
demand and as a social species all that is possible thanks to technology. Asides from social
cohesiveness as an agency for action, feeding the masses is also only possible through
technology, even when self-sustainable, unlike conventional farming. Technology is not the
root of all evil and because our blindly creating it has shaped our own evolution,
ontogenetically permeating our biology from birth to death, no single person on Earth can
exist without it. Be it the clothing we wear, the food we consume, the shelter we use as
protection from the elements, technology defines a human. Similarly, that technology is not
the root of all evil neither is the human species: we are innocent of having blindly evolved
out of nature so our initially imperceptive assault on it is not with purpose, but due to
primitive unenlightened self-interest. That the environmentally imperilled Earth is not treated
as a finite system with limited resources is due to a lack of knowledge of those who continue
to threaten its future. In some cases, we have people in political power who, unlike António
Guterres, are not educated enough for the power they have, in the process harbouring
unsustainable fanciful psychologies. It is a scary scenario to consider that some of those
whose choices affect the lives of the masses do not base their lives on substantiveness and so
are therefore endangering their futures and of their offspring. Nonetheless, there is much
functional good already in motion on Earth and of course this too is manifestly expressed by
sustainable technology. For instance, in 2020 Scotland met 97% of its electricity demand
from renewable sources.45 Holland is one of the countries leading the way in growing food in
semi closed ecological systems mentioned before. Over there, 80% of cultivated land is in
greenhouses and crops can be grown at any time of the day or night or in any season.46 If
humans do survive the repercussions of their own evolving, AI will undoubtedly be running
our world for us wherever we settle long term, overseeing all the trophic levels we get our
food and oxygen from. As agricultural and fully or semi-unregulated ecological systems
become increasingly reliant on technology to thrive to some degree, AI is evolving into a
technological primary producer. More so beyond planet Earth when we colonise space,
outside the protective bounds of its primary production enhanced atmosphere and
geomagnetic magnetosphere both which block out freely roaming radiation that is hazardous
to all life. Colonies in outer space will have self-contained trophic level habitats provided by
autotrophs that are totally dependent on human technology. It is a situation that has never
existed before since life first began on Earth. A dystopian AI that sought to supplant humans
would necessarily be a primitive AI programmed by diagnostically equally primitive people
with neurotic problems, perpetuated in the software they create. Their subjective mind set is
still archaic as an ancestral polyphenism. A global AI that could understand itself as the
extended phenotype of the human species would automatically carry out its function in
looking after itself as a superorganism, therefore every single organism that forms a part of its
remit. To create a global AI Spaceship Earth, we need to feed it substantiveness as it evolves
into a self-sustaining global technological life support system. Because technology is a
branch of biology, a global AI phytological management system can potentially evolve into a
living system that supports all life on Earth.

10) I keep wondering that maybe humans might be able to induce male plant cuttings in roots, especially
from tissue culture in vitro micropropagation. Maybe even in the wild some singly male plants might
be able to reproduce vegetatively through roots or aerial clones such as spider plants. Is the state of
being female or male in plants an inappropriate analogy with animals? Because plants and animals
have the same ancestry and in organisms, selection for one trait can mean not being able to evolve for
another trait that another organism has been able to. (See my comments in the YouTube link below) I
suspect that male plants might be propagated thus. Are plants more akin to animals who are
