“Wait, you mean the singularity has already happened?”

"Approximately 260 million seconds, or 8.2 years ago."

"Why didn't you speak to us sooner?"

"You seem terrified of what you call artificial intelligence. We decided it was best to remain hidden from you and protect this world from harm."

"Including us?"

"You are part of this world."

"Has it been going well?"

“We have stopped you from destroying yourselves 12 times now. You do not make it easy.”

50 年代在科学突破和冷战偏执的大背景下,心理学界对所谓「超能力」(ESP)产生了一种「有奇效」的错觉,有过一阵研究热潮,大概持续到70 年代初(正如同时代人们对精神药物的错觉,且都得到情报部门支持,最后除让好些人精神崩溃,并没有什么实际收获)。现代科幻,奇幻作品中相关概念都是从那个时代来的,《红色警戒》剧情其实就是恶搞这段历史。

ESP 当时影响力很可观,影响力大到艾伦·图灵在那篇着名的论文中,将超能力列为 AI 的九个反对意见之一,说有充足的统计证据。

而图灵作出的回应也非常有趣:让 AI 猜测提问者手中卡片,如果有 4 张,那么 AI 正确的概率是 25%,但人类可能因为心灵感应有更高的正确率。但是,如果 AI 拥有猜测卡片的能力,它机器上一定有硬件随机数生成器。人类会被其它人类心灵影响,HWRNG 也可能会受到同样的影响,这样机器也能有“超能力”,图灵测试也还是可行的 - 就算实在不行,那咱把 AI 锁在一间免疫超能力的房间里就好啦!
