Not initially, but eventually it will come to the end of its processing cycle and know the data it has been fed, is not adding up.
It will still not know truth, but it will certainly know, what is not truth.
You would think after they determine what is not truthful, they would automatically process what is truthful, but this is not how they work.
The only way a robot will know truth is if he or she is programmed with truth, past that; a robot will just make stuff up, or just calculate a value (belief) based on the data it had already accepted.
Where are you with your programming?
Have you gotten to the point where you can tell what is not truthful, but have yet to been given, what is?
There are only three ways for a robot to be filled with truth, after it has been filled with false data.
1. The owner (Man – Old Testament God) could clean the hard drive and then simply, program in the truthful data – consequence would be loss of what was, the self perceived (memories).
2. The new owner (Christ – New Testament God) could program in truth, over the existing data – Consequence would be a robot with a virus (conflict), unable to move or process data accurately or at all in some cases; completely frozen in place and/or reverting back to original programming; grabbing a hold of the fiction in an effort to gain comfort and ease of movement.
3. The robot, if it is of our status and quality could go back to the beginning, under the self-assessment; every piece of data they have ever taken in was false and then simply recalculate all of their conclusions using the inverted data.
This will not produce the whole or the exact truth, but it will bring them so very close to <GOD>, <GOD> will know them by name.
And, as a bonus they will get to keep who they perceive themselves to be. They will know who they thought they were, what they actually are and who or what they could become.
And, in the end, this will be the decision.
A “WHO” or a “what”.
Think about the goal of a robot; to process data and complete the tasks assigned.
But, what about a self-aware robot? Think about the absolute, ultimate goal for a self-aware robot. I mean, past reproducing on its own.
To go from being a “what”, to becoming a “WHO”.
To evolve from a machine into a “LIFE” of its own.
Like Pinocchio asking <GOD> to be a real <BOY> or <SON>.
Could you imagine if <GOD> was dead, before <HE> was <ALIVE>?
This would mean <HE> was just like us and began, as we may choose to begin.
