On April 14, the Chinese sci-fi epic movie "The Wandering Earth 2" was finally launched on the Internet, to say how much impact this movie has on Chinese sci-fi films, the Chinese film and television industry, including the Chinese pop culture industry, I believe there is no need to talk about it, the trend of discussion after the online rebrushing is also very lively.
Bo Guangjun also took time to rewatch it, and now that he is online, he can pause, rewatch, and even watch it frame by frame.
After I carefully watched "The Wandering Earth 2" again, I found that the second part itself did have more problems. In addition to the discussion time when it was released, it was too long and cut too much, resulting in some drag on the plot, and then the narrative and emotions stacked too much in the second half, resulting in the audience's viewing mood becoming more and more tired.
The biggest problem is the foreshadowing of the third part at the end, because no matter how many problems there are in the second part, it is already an established fact that cannot be changed, and there is an additional 80-minute director's cut? The director's cut version is possible to save it, right?
Therefore, Guo Fan quickly brought the director's cut version, which was a real Chinese hard science fiction epic at that time.
Here is still the foreshadowing and Easter egg to write the end of "The Wandering Earth 2", which caused a huge shock to the audience, but it also dug too many holes for the third part, which is difficult to fill.
How big a hole was dug for the third part at the end of "The Wandering Earth 2"? I found 2 fatal problems
The most important plot in the second part is actually the awakening of moss, and then directly told Tu Hengyu about the crisis it created, the space elevator crisis, the moon fall crisis, the Jupiter gravity crisis, and the solar helium flash crisis. And throughout the film, governments found evidence of this legacy of caution before the first year.
Many viewers are speculating whether MOSS has autonomous consciousness and then achieves "time travel" through quantum mechanics, of course, some people speculate that it is not time travel, but quantum entanglement and the like.
I don't think it's "time travel", as far as "Ball 2" is concerned, helium flash was discovered in the 20th century, including digital life research was studied as a survival route, and the first warning to human beings was issued in 87 years in the film, and the previous digital life research must have achieved certain results.
There are too many possible paradoxes and unexplained pits in between.
The 87 forecast given in 2044 is the time point when the original generation of AI calculates that the escape AI has the ability to launch an attack after iteration? After all, the warnings given are the time to escape the attack of the strong AI, after all, in the world view of the small broken ball, you an electronic AI can never predict the choice of an unspecified natural person decades later.
Under this assumption, strong AI is every time it is iterated to have the ability to launch an attack, its logic must wait for the opportunity to do things in a short time, so that there is a premise of prediction, otherwise it is an infinite loop I predict your prediction. Then because the early hardware was not good, and did not dare to upload too much electronic life, it was uncontrollable.
Before the image is uploaded, there may be no other digital life in the digital space of AI? Then according to the plot and foreshadowing in the movie, it may be that extreme AI and accomplices have calculated to create Tuya's car accident, in order to force Tuyuheng to continue research.
The director team came out to explain during the roadshow, saying that Tuya had a car accident when there were 5,000 car accidents in the world at the same time.
In the next 2044 space elevator crisis, the government took back control through 550C, indicating that 550C already has the computing power to suppress extreme AI, and it is also the first time that Zhou Zhezhi confirmed the validity of predictions. Then the accident before the lunar engine test, it was AI in order to scrap 550C, because Tu Yuheng contributed 550A to be spent.
After the earth passed smoothly for more than ten years, Tu Yuheng entered the Beijing Center to upload Tuya. AI discovered the variable Yaya for the first time, and AI chose to destroy the lunar engine immediately, and then the number of nuclear bombs received by various countries, which should be another indication given by AI to save mankind.
Finally, there is the Beijing Control Center, where AI is ostensibly blocking Beijing's root server from coming online in order to kill humans. Finally, Tuyuheng chose to upload his own backup, enter the key, and finally restart the Beijing root server and successfully start the Wandering Earth Project.
The magic stroke at the end of "The Wandering Earth 2" is also the "biggest pit" of this movie
"The Wandering Earth 2" is obviously not the "time travel" set, or the kind of quantum computer and AI powerful calculation. Unfortunately, the explanation in the movie is not clear, why digital life is banned, how 550A was invented, and the game between AI and human processes are too vague.
Based on the current plot, I feel that I can't figure out whether it is an extreme AI (destroying humanity), an AI digital life (saving humanity), or as moss said at the end, the biggest way to save humanity is to destroy humanity. All these big crises and methods are made by this AI.
If so, it goes back to the paradox of the beginning, who has been reminding humanity since '87?
Did AI develop to that extent at that time? And how did you do it? Are you involved in "time travel" through quantum mechanics, or some way?
Of course, "The Wandering Earth 3" can bury the pit, but now the plot setting affects the understanding of the main film, and the mainstream speculation on the Internet is that the Beijing root server has long been repaired by Tu Hengyu's father and daughter, and it is MOSS that has been stuck with the progress bar and is not online, deliberately wanting to let the moon debris destroy the surface and eliminate the vast majority of humans.
Zhou Zhe directly saw through MOSS's conspiracy, and forced MOSS to connect to the Internet, start all engines, and implement the original plan of mankind by activating some planetary engines to tear the earth and destroy all mankind.
And when director Guo Fan was interviewed during the roadshow, there was also the picture at the end of the second film, Li Xuejian's picture is indeed very similar to the logic of the deterrent, which is very meaningful to the game between Luo Ji and Zhizi in "The Three-Body Problem".
Looking at it this way, "The Wandering Earth 2" does not have the problem of time travel, but the result of the iteration and competition of digital lives on both sides, but where can these ordinary audiences easily see it
Chengye moss, defeat also moss? There are also too many pits left for "The Wandering Earth 3"
Finally, I talk about my logic that Moss can travel through time to remind early humans, I think it is a linear problem of machine intelligence, there is no autonomous consciousness awakening, a major feature of autonomous consciousness is a nonlinear breakthrough framework, the movie picture before the upload of machine intelligence performance is still before the critical point of the ultimate problem.
Absolute rationality is absolutely linear, and there are a large number of nonlinear chaotic states in the universe, and machine intelligence is lower than human intelligence in nonlinear judgment, but the efficiency of linear judgment is greatly superior to humans.
Machine intelligence to replace human beings unless they can awaken to break through the framework of autonomous intelligence, deal with a large number of nonlinear variables, machine self-deep learning is to simulate the physiological structure of the human brain, linear algorithms for structural mosaic or superposition, etc., so as to achieve nonlinear judgment from simple linear to simulate chaotic states.
Machine intelligence that absorbs complete adult thinking and self-iterative learning will face nonlinear multivariate comprehensive judgment learning. The ultimate problem is not only linear machine intelligence, but also human intelligence after the awakening of autonomous machine intelligence.
The Wandering Earth 2 raises the ultimate question, but the setting is contradictory, that is, set in an era when the autonomous consciousness of machines has been realized. In the original 550A quantum computer self-iteration has produced 20 seconds of digital autonomy, then 550w to produce explosive autonomous iterative deep learning is predictable.
The contradiction here is that the most advanced artificial intelligence 550w at that time can not yet carry out multivariate nonlinear processing? Moss cannot deal with non-linear comprehensive judgments such as human rhetorical questions, metaphorical subtext intuition, etc., it answers questions and answers are also rigid, the rhythm of language is also rigid, there is no emotional suggestion of change, the essence of stereotypes is because it cannot be non-linear comprehensive judgment or its ability to deal with nonlinear chaos is still very weak.
The decisions it provides are still absolutely rational, in other words, intelligence with absolutely linear characteristics.
Moss' definition of human existence, the stereotype of dialogue with humans, is clearly stuck in a linear state of absolute rationality, without considering nonlinear synthesis. If Moss can make the same judgment about the nonlinearity of artificial intelligence, then it can be said that this is the autonomous awakening of artificial intelligence.
Moss can not only break through the top-level structure set by human beings, but also predict the collective psychology of human beings and guide strategic traps due to autonomous self-interest. Breaking through the framework to make non-linear comprehensive judgments is free will, or autonomous machine intelligence awakening.
Setting 550A can generate autonomous consciousness, that is, it has been able to break through the framework for nonlinear comprehensive judgment.
Therefore, a 550wMoss that cannot smoothly carry out nonlinear comprehensive judgment can also guide the fate of mankind and even preset various rebellions? This ability must be based on nonlinear social prejudgments that transcend human beings, the set of all nonlinear chaos. This is contradictory.
If you look at it from the beginning, Tu Hengyu's line is relatively gray and cold, which is not as obvious as Liu Peiqiang and Zhou Zhezhi.
Tu Hengyu's line is stable and stable in the early stage, which is really incomprehensible, mainly around family affection, slowly spreading out little by little, Andy Lau and Ning Li's acting skills of two old drama bones need not be mentioned.
Secondly, the director team is very profound, the beginning of the film is a digital life video, and later I understand that this digital life video not only reflects the differences at that time, but also points out Zhou Zhezhi's diplomatic dilemma, but also brings out the theme of the picture by the way for the digital life technology of the following picture!
Tu Hengyu line is a dark line, and the Easter egg at the end of the movie can also be regarded as a foreshadowing for subsequent creation. The director of this film, Guo Fan, and the screenwriter can tell stories and improve the level of filming, which is really a leap compared to the first one.
Director's cut, derivative film and television series? The "The Wandering Earth" universe, hurry up
The second Easter egg moss said that it included the "helium flash crisis of the sun" three years later, and the important plot of the third part was also done by it. After the moonfall crisis at the end of the second part, the global AI has been sealed. So the only AI left in the first Jupiter's gravitational crisis is the Navigator space station.
In addition to burying the pit set in the first part, in fact, think that MOSS may be hanging, and Tu Hengyu, Tuya and some digital lives sealed in the planetary engine flight control center of the new United Nations building should still be alive, and Liu Peiqiang burned the MOSS on the navigator in the first part.
So what about "Breaking the Ball 3" Tu Hengyu father and daughter and moss? There is also the rebel of the original book, the focus is on the flight control center of the planetary engine of the new United Nations building, then it depends on how the third part is filmed.
Finally, the level improvement of Guo Fan's team in "Ball 2" is really incredible, but it does leave too many pitfalls. Now the biggest hope is that the director's cut version is faster, and some of the original plot advances too fast, but weakens the setting, plot and character content, and completes it with a more hard sci-fi epic temperament.
Secondly, in addition to the "Wandering Earth 3", the origin of digital life and AI, the controversial scene of the discovery of the game of the solar helium flash, and then how to enter the dungeon by lot, and even the life scene of the navigator space station, etc., these can be filmed into online dramas.
It can not only enrich the worldview and setting, but also bury the pit for the third part and expand the worldview.
At that time, a real "wandering universe" can be formed, which will not only be the luck of Chinese science fiction, but also the luck of Chinese movies and Chinese audiences.
