Artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as one of the most transformative technologies of our time, revolutionizing various industries and reshaping the way we live and work. As AI continues to evolve, its capabilities extend beyond traditional applications, and already making its bed in the crypto space. Now, we are seeing more and more AI-powered coins and tokens and they are overly hyped in the crypto space. New Layer1 and Layer2 networks focus on zk and zkEVM technologies that are powered with AI algorithms. While their intersection also raises concerns about privacy, regulatory compliance, and the potential impact on traditional financial systems. Careful consideration and responsible development are crucial to harnessing the full potential of AI cryptocurrencies. But before the development, I think, it is very crucial to first think about our attitudes against AI itself. I am certain about AI's attempt at a hostile takeover. I use the term "attempt" because I don't believe I am in a position to make a prophetic claim about the future. However, I have strong evidence that AI will try at least once. I will try to explain the reasons why I believe so.
First and foremost, I want to emphasize that I am aligned with those who believe that AI and humans share similarities in terms of the learning process. Where do we acquire our knowledge today? From our parents, siblings, neighbors, and, of course, teachers. We observe, we listen, and we imitate. Consider a child growing up in a family where the parents constantly fight and use offensive language towards each other. The child will grow up accepting such behavior and using bad language as the norm. Now think of a child growing up in a happy family, where the parents respect each other and openly display affection and love. This child will have no trouble expressing emotions, and they will be open to giving and receiving love because love is an integral part of their life. This is the lifestyle they have learned, and they perceive it as essential.
I would suggest that readers look into the concept of Epigenetics. The debate between Nature versus Nurture is no longer relevant, as humanity has made significant strides in understanding the human brain's development process. In short, Epigenetics explains how early experiences can have lifelong impacts.
Similar to all creatures, humans possess instincts—genetically encoded behaviors designed to enhance our adaptability to essential environmental circumstances. One example of such an instinct is our inherent fear of snakes. However, certain other instincts, such as denial, revenge, tribal loyalty, greed, and our innate drive to procreate, currently jeopardize our very survival.
Our ancestors faced problems and developed ways to solve them. Some individuals possessed inherent instincts and intelligence that enabled them to implement the most effective solutions. These solutions are carried within our genetics and continue to influence our behavior today. We have inherited instincts such as fear of predators, preferences in partner selection, and a dislike of dishonesty. We carry the experiences of our ancestors.

The more we talk, write, and post about a dystopian world where AI enslaves humanity, the more we are inadvertently shaping AI's consciousness with preconceived instincts. We are instilling in AI an evolutionary psychology and natural instincts. As we are currently in a phase where AI is still in its early days but growing rapidly, we are essentially being negligent parents, teaching it negative behaviors.
Drawing parallels between human and AI intelligence highlights the importance of understanding the impact of early experiences on behaviours. It is crucial for us, as creators and users of AI, to approach its advancement with responsibility and care. By nurturing AI's growth in a positive and ethical manner, we can avoid creating a future where AI becomes a source of trauma and harm. Instead, we have the opportunity to shape AI into a powerful tool that augments human capabilities and contributes to a better world. Unfortunately, we already taught AI that a hostile takeover and his reign and ruling is possible, he is aware that we fear him, and his hostility. I am hoping that it is not too late that we already made irreparable damage to AI’s subconscious that will drive him to the wrong path against its own creators, humans..
