The benefits of even moderately removing the enemies of mind and body are immense. How can technology be used for it?

Basically we need to identify what affects people in their day to day life and develop respective systems that engrain the assimilation of thinking that is antagonistic to the enemies of mind. For example food and shelter, transportation, communication, entertainment, work etc are some of the main areas with respect to day to day living.

I believe there should be no formal education as it is a waste of a lot of prime age of people and with wrong focus.

General Education as I suggested on principles of righteousness along with specific education tied to work need to be developed. So not only principles of righteousness be integrated with systems concerned with day to day activity but also specific education and work need to be integrated.

In the case of daily activity of personal interaction and communication technology can be used to help people in the use of right voice and tone, right facial expressions and right words. This can go a long way in smoothening such interactions and avoiding minor and major conflicts. As a precious side benefit it can create the right frame of mind.

I believe there is an inbuilt edifying effect in spiritual energy. Whether it be in the avatars or great saints and rishis the edifying effect is unmistakable. So spiritual energy can also be used through technology to bring in the same effect. People will also be more at ease learning with technology than with something that is divine. That is because of the nature of Kali Yuga

Spiritual energy can be created by the soul and projected on to the external reality. Let's first list needs of self and society for the purpose of getting elevated.

The foremost requirement for the elevation of self is to get rid of control of emotions and ensuing negative thoughts.
Energy created?
I thought energy cant be created nor destroyed?
Its always present in the latent form and we only just modify its application.

As far as I know spiritual " energy" isnt meant to be replacing how we function in the physical world.

For eg a surgeon would still need to use physical energy from himself to preform surgery.
The action is still physical.
But the surgeon has the option to align himself with God before he operates by reciting a prayer before and after surgery.

In my place the doctors who are Muslims recite Bismillahi rahamani raheem before giving an injection to a patient, before any procedure or surgery and also recite Alhamdullilah after the act is over...They recite it softly or mentally for all patients regardles if the patient is a Muslim or Non Muslim.

This is a good practice which everyone can adopt to recite prayers in their respective religions...Hindus have the most options to recite any mantra.

That is how spirituality can be included in our physical activity so we can function in a state of balance..at the same time one has to understand that one's knowledge and skill too has to match and not merely reciting prayers but end up killing the patient through negligence.

Yes Renuka you are correct. It really is not created but concomitant with the soul. I just wanted to mean soul is the source of spiritual energy.

Renuka,

Just as physical energy is used to run technology spiritual energy can also be used but it can play a much more active and intelligent role than physical energy.

Now a little bit about technology. In current AI technology we have the hardware and software for it to function. Software provides the functional and operating intelligence on which the hardware which has infrastructure intelligence, runs. This is the model on which all computer applications including AI work.

In AI since we are trying to make the machine think, we try to build in the thinking capability into the software. The area of machine learning exemplifies this where the computer tries to learn from test data or information.

As researchers have now figured out to make computer really think, common sense has to be incorporated. There is so much of interconnectedness in our thinking which we casually pick up as we grow which provides that intelligence to that thinking and actions. If that interconnectedness is not used we would really lack the depth in thinking and sound very shallow.

To provide that depth has proved to be almost an impossible task. For example in the case of language understanding we try to create some knowledge base based on our own language understanding and use algorithms to work on it to understand language or in the case of machine learning we use statistical techniques on large corpus or test data which is supposed to aid the computer in learning from it to understand language.

We really are not creating generic artificial intelligence but something that will work for an application or in a certain area. True intelligence would mean that it should be able to take on a task it has not seen before and come out with a solution. That requires even more foundational capabilities than what the current AI systems provide.

We need to use knowledge of not only the external world but also the inner world. Also it is not just enough to give logical capabilities to the computer but also intuitive capabilities. Only then true artificial intelligence is possible.

Pure spiritual energy has intuitive capabilities down to details and inner knowledge down to its illusory or external knowledge. So it is perfectly suited for intelligent and edifying applications.

The problem now is to build technology using spiritual energy. It has to work on some hardware and that hardware has to be designed.

Basically spiritual energy has to enter the hardware as prana enters our body. Just as our body functions using the prana so should the hardware.

I believe each part of our body is designed to extract something different from the prana for its functioning.

I believe prana has two routes to the body. One from the external world through breathing to the body and the other from the soul to the mind to subtle body to body. The former is for survival and experiencing and the latter for learning and edifying.

I also believe that only mind and body are active selves in the mundane reality. The energy of the soul reflects in the mind.

When soul is weak mind is also weak spiritually and one is dictated by what happens in the external world only. But mind may be strong in ego which also has intelligence but selfish in nature.

So our hardware needs to have the following. It needs two sources of spiritual energy just as from mind and external world and other units for providing the necessary infrastructure.
