I came across a book that can be summarized as follows: Our difference from animals is we have a space between reflexive behavior and conscious actions, which is where we exert free will. And our growth is to lengthen and widen that space as much as possible to create more freedom to choose with intent and thoughtfulness.
I hope we have the wisdom to choose actions, no matter how small and spontaneous, that makes this world kinder and better. I feel it will be alot easier if we did it together. And AI can then learn from the best of all our actions.
