We are driven towards this with a zeal akin to the quest for the Holy Grail.
But what exactly is our motivation? Is it genuine need, or something else?
We still have next to no understanding of Human conscious awareness: what causes it, what it means . . . the proper use of it. (Meta-consciousness and intelligence go together)
And now we are driven to try to re-create that which we are woefully ignorant of, into something that could so easily exceed our control?
He’ll, we can’t even control it in ourselves most of the time!
So what do you think we are up to? Are we trying to prove something? Have we thought this through? Is it one of those “just because we can” things?
