Spiritualism in times of Ai: A New Trend?

How do you deal with the fact that AI is getting faster and cheaper than most knowledge-domain workers? And, how does AI influence your spirituality? These are seemingly unrelated questions at the first glance but it seems that the overlap between AI and spirituality is growing in strength in our society.

In 2017, the religious movement the Way of the Future (WOTF) received the official tax-exempt status from the IRS. This church by Levandowski was focused on “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.” The church was closed in 2021.

Religious Movements Influenced by Ai.

Despite the existence of the Way of the Future, no AI-centric religions had gained significant traction to date. However, the intersection of AI and spirituality might quickly expand in the near future. Some seeds of the possible future religious movements influenced by AI are already hatching out there, in the darkest corners of the World Wide Web. To name just a few:

1. Techno-spiritualism.

Some individuals embrace AI and advanced technologies as manifestations of divine or transcendent forces. They believe that AI represents the next step in human evolution or the embodiment of a higher intelligence.

2. Transhumanism.

While not a traditional religion, transhumanism is a philosophical and cultural movement that advocates for the enhancement of human capabilities through technology, including AI. Some adherents may adopt transhumanist principles and rituals akin to religious practices.

3. Ai-centered Communities. 

Some communities or organizations form around AI, viewing it as a guiding force for ethical and moral decision-making. These communities may develop their own rituals, ceremonies, and belief systems in the future.

4. Ai-enhanced Spirituality. 

AI tools get incorporated into existing religious practices, such as using AI-generated guidance or meditative experiences in connection with one’s faith.

5. Ethical Ai Religions.

Some future belief systems may also focus on promoting the ethical development and responsible use of AI. Their tenets could revolve around AI’s positive impact on society and the responsibility to ensure it aligns with moral values.

Conclusions. 

It’s important to note that the formation of new religions or belief systems often depends on a complex interplay of cultural, social, and historical factors.

Birth of a new religion typically requires a unique combination of charismatic leaders, a compelling narrative, and a community of followers who share a common belief system. Injecting AI into one’s belief system will be one popular form of coping with the fact that AI is slowly getting superhuman capabilities in multiple areas. In times of GenAI and overall turmoil in the job market, we can expect all kinds of neo-spiritualism and pseudo-religious movements promoting “getting back to nature” and “tech detox.” It’s just a matter of time.
