The chances of the internet developing its own consciousness, is rooted in the idea that neuro-science has argued that human consciousness is the sum of all the parts of the brain working together. Given that the internet has billions of parts, would it not be the case that the internet would also develop consciousness, if this is true? It is highly unlikely. However, Bamber argues in his paper that with a little encouragement, investment and applying the right and existing technology we could create a form of internet artificial intelligence.

B.C.Bamber is a theorist, writer and journalist and worked for a range of titles including The Times, Building and others, as well as having published two science fiction titles, The Vast and Gruesome Clutch of Our Law and The Dove Sun, plus a non-fiction title discussing the possibility of a scientific theory of God, Hope and Fury: The Revealing of Secret Knowledge.
