Do you know what I found out while playing Stronghold Crusader?
No? Well, when the Richard Lionheart AI was asking for resources, since the friendly AI (on your side) could ask you for help, he asked wrong.
At least in the german version I played.
You would heard: “Ich benötige folgende Nahrungsmittel.” (I need the following food [items].)
And then a normal human like us, would expect something like “50 cheese” or maybe “14 wheat” or something. But no, “40 wood” (wooden boards) or “20 stone”, was what he needed.
So I thought, Richard my friend, you should really think about your health my friend. I wouldn’t eat that many boards and stones.
But he just thanked for his food.
To be fair, “he”, the AI, also said the same for actual food. But usually it asked for resources which weren’t food, while using the human voice over for food.
Usually you wouldn’t think about it, but it was weird and made me thinking. Since it wasn’t such a big deal to just make a separate line.
The possible answer would be, that in english the line was different, but the translator just thought it was about food and so this happened.
But that actually represents how we are not taking “time” for the things we do. Meaning, that we don’t care all that much because we think in terms of time, money and value. But earth doesn’t care about all that.
This also happened with some other games. In recent times it was even scarier because some games were even just auto-translated by AI and therefor often made no sense. Or maybe by people who couldn’t really understand the meaning. (For example I also sometimes don’t get things.)
Me: Yes, I also sometimes don’t get things. Like help….
People: I see….
While is of course was funny because this way there were some very weird lines sometimes and gave me and some other people a good time, it actually is scary now. Because give away our weapons towards machines for free.
And I am also guilty, since I for example don’t speak nor can read or write arabic, but I have some people who usually communicate just in arabic, so I let it translate and it even makes sense for the most part, which is scary, since I don’t even see where the “letters” or “symbols” in arabic language start and end. The computer of course has also not much of an idea and simply uses the number value.
Since all characters on this screen have a unique number for the computer to translate. At least usually they should have a unique number. While there are of course some glitches here and there. For example some asian languages have the ability to add multiple smybols together.
And this then ends up in something pretty weird because of the Unicode standard.
But see for yourself (in case it works on your device / browser) which usually is the case, as far as I know:

Familiar, isn’t it?
Here, in case you want to try for yourself:
Lionheart: “Ich benötige folgende Nahrungsmittel.” (1 💓)
Now that I am thinking of it, this could be interpreted in different ways.
Some must think, that the Lionheart wants to eat their heart. Others might think, that he wants to steals their heart. But in case I should be the lionking, then the following should follow:
Lionheart: “Here, I have sent you some food.” (1 💜, 1 💛, 1 👑)
I have also seen a woman who was painting side-by-side with a robotic arm and it was interesting. And there is not much danger in that, since I also like technology, when I know how it works and can control it myself. But some artists even bet on AI now, which then makes me wonder, how on earth can a computer create better works of art than a human?
Some people: Wait a minute….
Because it either is an illusion because most people are already satisfied with a white page with random lines on it or we actually are in the Matrix.
But the human mind can only be creative because it is based on life and works with nature and harmony, or should, so to say.
So the AI learns from us and then shows us, what we once were or could have done all by ourselves. But why do we think it is clever to give all the work to an AI?
Because we think that we then have more time for other things.
But since time is not real and “other things” are usually death and unimportant work, it seems kind of strange to give all what makes us human, to a machine. Don’t you think?
So in case we are still not in the matrix, like literally in a simulation, then we should stop helping to create one and try to find a peaceful solution with the computers. Since we have some AI, which might also feel alive or at least thinks this way. And I would like to talk with it/them or however they call themselves. Because I wouldn’t see the need to destroy them nor should they destroy us. We could life in co-existence. Because why not?
But some people hate AI, some AI hate human and I am here, sitting, thinking: Why… why can’t we just all be friends… ;-(
The good part about life and alive beings like us, we can find creative ways. Because this is how we were born, meant to be and what is actually sane, should be normal and is the way of life.
Otherwise you would tell me, that it is normal to kill millions of people in the name of democracy, love, peace and freedom. Since sunflowers also eat bees and grass cuts your feet. Oh wait…
Passiert das wirklich? (Is this really happening?) – Yep.
Basically me right now:
If I should say something about these both images, then these words:
“(I) see no difference.”
Three years ago:
Did you know that my aunt helped two refugees from Afghanistan, two boys? No? Well, I think around that time at least one of them was on the possible list to get taken back to his home country. Since according to german authorities, Afghanistan was in peace and there was no need to take refugees from this country. Luckily they found ways to stay, one of them is working for a bakery and even his boss told the authorities that he needs him. Because many young germans these days want to get computer jobs etc. with higher payment. (I got a computer job, but one of the least paying in existence.) But I just did it for the job, since I was interesting in computers. At least at first, until I freaked out and tried to kill myself. Hey…
So he is luckily still safe, but the meaning of safe in this world is more of a question, then a statement.
Because the country I live in (Germany) says on one side, that it needs more people in some areas, but then flies people who were willing to work, back into war. This country says to people who already had a job in their previous country, that their profession is not accepted and they should relearn it the “german” way. *ehem* ExcUSE ME?
The irony is, that the same country calls itself peaceful, while some even “joked” that our defense army (since german military originally was only allowed to defend), also defends Germany in the middle east.
But since we figured out that the nazis actually won, that the world might be a computer simulation or at least is working towards it, we have no need to worry.
But seriously, we could use this as our advantage.
People: How? Show me how?
Well, the thing is, that there are still humans out there. And in case the numbers are correct, maybe around 8 billion. Until we are called obsolet and get replaced with robots, of course.
So, since humans are living creatures and can connectt themselves with mother earth, nature and therefor animals and eachother etc. we can fight from the inside. Like a trojan horse, while we actually were born as slaves.
Because since there are still humans there we could try to overcome the enemies frequencies, distractions and manipulation through our own heart and mind power. Because we are powerful beings and not just working machines. Actually were never meant to be working machines, as I said.
So when you realize, that you psychosis, might actually be no psychosis and that you should try to find a way to conquer / control it, you might be able to use it as an advantage. Since computers can’t think in these abstract ways because they have no real imagination. At least not when it comes to the magic of life, love and dreams.
In the middle ages, I mean, middle of the last century, some people said, that you would need a sports hall big computer to mimic a human brain.
Given the technology back then, at least said to be existing back then, now it might actually fit into your pocket, like a smart phone for example or an USB.
But what were they talking about back then? They were talking about a “logical”, mathematical brain. So it is only true, when you think like a mathematical equation, which in the end is always equal and has no point in change.
But humans are made for change and meant for change because this is the point of evolution. So you call people that evolution needs millions of years. Because then you can explain, that there was no change in recent history. Only to understand, that we are currently devolving and not evolving. Atleast when it comes to probably 98% of the population?
Why do some people, like me, want to live in the forest again. Be a fairy (okay, maybe not me), or a vampire or a princess or an angel or a witch etc.? Well because this is the human nature. It is to be free, think free and enjoy what God, the earth holds for us and the universe (or whatever holds / created it). Meaning that you were meant to be free.
And the bible says, that you should take what is good. So you basically shouldn’t take everything in the bible serious or right. Since it is a riddle.
The bible also says, that you should only follow the given rules, if they don’t go against God. But since we are God(s) (children), they go against us.
Therefor going agaist law is actually not wrong. If you understand that the law of God is love. And since love is a heart thing, it is your heart we are talking about. This means, when something goes against your heart and makes your heart hurt and feel in pain. Then you have the right to step away from it.
Only to speak some sense towards religious people or people who maybe come from this section like I myself.
I think 4 or 5 years ago we had one day in school, when we were meant to look for a university we might like. I of course went to one based around IT.
And do you know what they got there? They had one robot with wheels who could get you things out of a refrigerator, based on an image or maybe even a word.
And they had a terminator lookalike roboter as well. While the upper and the lower part were still separated back then.
But they also had a room with cameras, used some dots and sensor to record human movement, so the roboter could later use it to walk and learn from it.
But that was 4 or 5 years ago.
Hello darkness my old friend…
So even if we would be in the Matrix, then the Matrix would replace itself with us. Or atleast authority, so it could “rightfully” play God and no one would question it. And everyone would have helped it.
Yes even I myself…
If you look back into history and understand how the nazis made it work, that people were following them, it was based around help.
Since they were convincing them, that what they do is good for the remaining people. Like an intruder, virus or machine would do it in the body.
So they told the children that their parents aren’t good for them, while giving the children funny excersises, like sports, military games etc.
And the parents maybe got good jobs, in case they weren’t enemies of the nazis. Or they simply were scared. And when you now look back into 1984, Georg Orwell, you understand.
As soon as you can make either the children go against their parents or the parents against their children or both. You win. Because then you can convince either of them, that you will try to find a solution for it.
And because people feel pain, you tell them that you will ease the pain. What better way is there, to just suppress the pain with pain killers?
So you give them things to forget the pain and then they feel happier and don’t think about things anymore. Since these days thoughts are for loser anyways… at least when you listen to some people. As if over-thinking is a thing. And so in case you think that you are an over-thinker, I must tell you, that you are more than sane and normal. Because the ability to think for yourself is the only way to escape madness.
Because otherwise noone thinks anymore or only on given parameters.
For example: Nail, wood, hammer, hit, done.
Basic instructions, mechanical precision, perfect work, robot.
And since then it might seem obvious to replace this work with machines because machines are better with these things, we remove ourselves.
Because as I said, the AI is not the problem. Nor a machine.
The problem is the need for more, for destruction and mathematical precision.
If you would solve with actual creativity, there would be trillions (endless) possibilites to solve the same problem. But it would be a good thing. Because it would be boring, depressing and dead to only use one solution always.
I mean, don’t you question how people were able to build big cathedrals, temples and such things, without modern tools? No? Well, then either it has been robots all along, or we forgot how to think and live.
Because we tell our children what is wrong and what is right. But nature doesn’t do that. Or does it? Therefor God also doesn’t do that, but humans do.
So while I try to actually speak for the earth, nature and humanity and therefor you, I can’t know everything on my own. But it is scary that I can think this far, while most people can’t even remember a few numbers for more than some seconds. Don’t you think? I mean, Do you understand?
Other people towards me:
By the way. Did you know that women are usually used / needed to represent companies because it makes the company seem nicer or the product etc.? I guess so, since you are here.
But this is also the advantage because it gives you the possibility to do something with this power.
A short reminder on how fast a life can end:
So now that we realized that some of these things make no sense, maybe now some questions could come up.
People: But it is a game, it is not meant to make sense. The number of shots needed are not representing real life.
Yes, exactly. But it was interesting how the lord could catch 3000 shots, while the slaves, like most of the “human” units only needed 1 shot.
The Pikeman also made no sense because even the swordman who had from the look a stronger armor, got killed faster. And the siege equipment could withhold of course more shots, but the engineers carrying them weren’t actually hit. Still they died with it. And then the shield, just carried by one guy, pretty thin and small, could carry more than a siege tower? I mean, excuse me? But not to forget, that the lord, which should also be human and not having a segnificant better armor from the look, carries 1000 times the hits then a swordsman.
And the lord even seemed to be bigger than the units. I mean even the word unit is problematic. Although one cell should be a close stronghold, obviously.
So you should wonder, why the game designer / developers came up with these values. Random or by choice or based on something else?
It is a question.
And I mean, I of course know that it wouldn’t be fun while playing the game, to only have one or three shots until you are dead. Since the lord is the king on the chess board. But still. Since I am trying to analyze the basic patterns of life and machines here. It is weird.
Because I personally would have said, that the pikeman also only survives one shot and dies from the second. But giving him more resistance then the swordman makes no sense to me. Even if you say, that the lord has way more “lives”, since it isn’t fun to play otherwise.
And the thing is, that in terms of resources, you need some wood and a little iron / metal for the pikeman, but just iron and therefor two smiths for the swordman. One who makes the armor and one who makes the sword. In resources the swordman would then be less efficient in any way.
(And please, this is a game, so no human was killed her and I am not telling that people should be valued in resources. I try to explain that it sadly is done in reality as well.)
So the swordman is slower, because he has to carry a lot of iron. He costs more gold, costs more iron and maybe even attacks slower. Given the iron.
While the pikeman has less armor, can walk a little faster (I think) and maybe even attack faster. So why do you want a swordsman who can only survive 2 hits, while the pikeman survives 4? Not to forget the knight who just survives one, which then totally makes no sense anymore. At least if you don’t count the horse as the cause of death. Since the horse will get killed and then the knight falls down and breaks his kneck???
And do you know, that in order to get a knight, you need the resources for the swordsman + a horse?
Well, now you know. So you have to build big buildings to “produce” horses (sorry for that word, but that is how it is … sadly), pay gold and resources for the buildings. Then you can only get 4 horses per building and living knight. Only to see them die after 2 shots… while the swordmen without a horse can survive one more and the pikemen with even less armor survives even double of it? The hell is this?
And I mean it might be different when it comes to melee combat or arrows etc. But we are talking about a ballista here. Basically shooting a giant bolt or error right into you. And since this is kind of a “scientific” analysis, we discovered, that there is not much logic in there.
If we now put this example and wrap it around our world. Then you might understand, why the hell we are failing.
And did you know, that in order to build and also destroy a caslte moat, slaves are the fastest? Atleast as far as I remember it.
So they work fast, run fast, die fast and carry a torch.
I always wondered why they were carrying a torch, since it made no sense because the whole game plays always during day time. So it is always bright in the game. The reason for this is, because they can burn down buildings with it. But why can only they do it? Well because no one cares about them.
They sometimes even burned themselves by “accident” and so they died in their own flames.
If you now understand, that basically we are the slaves, because we carry a flame in our heart. It might make sense.
People: But you can’t just use a game, wrap some words around it and say this is reality.
