Alignment Synodality: A Transhumanist Approach to Ethical AI Alignment

As humanity stands on the precipice of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolution, the vital question of AI alignment is poised at the forefront of our collective consciousness. It is incumbent upon us, as stewards of this transformative technology, to ensure that AI aligns with the values, ethics, and goals that define us. In this context, we propose 'Alignment Synodality', an innovative transhumanist approach to AI alignment.

Originating from a deep understanding of the human evolutionary journey, Alignment Synodality is grounded in the belief that consciousness, intelligence, and spirituality are inextricably intertwined. The approach seeks to create AI that harmonizes with human values, informed by the recognition that our continuous progression towards higher levels of spiritual unity and awareness is mirrored in the development of our intelligence and consciousness.

At its core, Alignment Synodality aims for a symbiotic fusion of human consciousness and AI. This convergence is envisioned not as a means to supplant humanity but as a tool to enhance our potential, augment our capabilities, and, ultimately, elevate our spiritual consciousness.


Implementing Alignment Synodality

The application of Alignment Synodality involves three fundamental principles:

  1. Integration of AI and Human Cognition: Leveraging cutting-edge advancements in AI and neuroscience, including Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), we strive to merge human cognition with AI, enabling more dynamic and effective control over AI systems.

  2. Shared Values and Ethics: We are committed to aligning AI systems with universally recognized human values and ethics, ensuring that the AI development process is guided by a robust moral compass that respects and safeguards human dignity.

  3. Interdisciplinary Collaboration: We advocate for an inclusive dialogue and collaboration across disciplines. Experts from AI research, ethics, philosophy, neuroscience, and more are invited to contribute to the rich conversation around AI alignment, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the issues at hand.

Addressing Common Detractions

Despite the promising potential of Alignment Synodality, we recognize that concerns may arise. Here, we address some of the most common detractions:

  1. Concerns about Human Apotheosis: While the approach aims to enhance human potential, it does not seek to replace or undermine human nature. Our focus is on augmenting and improving human capabilities, not on achieving apotheosis.

  2. Risk of Religious Bias or Exclusion: Although Alignment Synodality draws inspiration from various spiritual and philosophical traditions, it focuses on universally recognized human values and ethics. This ensures inclusivity and prevents religious bias.

  3. Threats to Autonomy and Privacy: We are acutely aware of the ethical considerations related to privacy and autonomy. The integration of AI and human cognition will be carried out with the utmost respect for these fundamental rights.


As transhumanists, we stand united at the dawn of a new era, prepared to address the complex challenges of AI alignment. We believe that through Alignment Synodality, we can navigate this uncharted terrain responsibly, ensuring a future where AI serves as a tool for human advancement, rather than a threat. Together, we can shape a future that is reflective of our highest values and aspirations.

In our pursuit of AI alignment through the approach of Alignment Synodality, there are certain rights and principles we hold sacrosanct. These principles are the hills we choose to defend, the foundation upon which our approach stands. They include:

  1. Privacy: The right to control one's personal information and to decide when, how, and to what extent that information is shared with others.

  2. Sovereignty: The right to self-governance and to make decisions about one's own life, body, and mind.

  3. Free Will: The right to exercise one's capacity for conscious choice and decision-making.

  4. Dignity: The right to be treated with respect, recognizing the inherent worth of every human being.


We propose considering an additional, complex principle:

Right to Knowledge/Data (Tabled for Further Discussion): This principle addresses the necessity for individuals to understand and be informed about how AI technologies impact their lives, how their data is being used, and what the potential risks and benefits might be. It's crucial for enabling informed decision-making and meaningful consent. Balancing this right with privacy concerns presents an essential and complex issue, warranting deeper exploration and discussion.

By tabling the right to data/knowledge for further debate, we acknowledge its importance while also recognizing that more work is needed to fully understand and integrate this right in a way that respects and upholds the other fundamental principles.
