We Are Who We Are

Welcome on TheGoldTao Website We are social and wellness entrepreneurs and sometimes, when divinely inspired, “artists” of the consciousness evolution.

We also love to transform our knowledge and intuitions into contents that we hope that they can inspire your personal development and your spiritual growth. We are competent in…continue reading →
Well-Being, Progress & Society. Racism Episodes as Breakdown to Progress of a Nation

Well-Being, Progress & Society. Racism Episodes as Breakdown to Progress of a Nation

The conditions in which we live, learn, work and age affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. Social determinants such as neighborhood, education and health care can influence our lifelong well-being. Everyone in a society should have the opportunity to make healthy and positive choices and live their lives with dignity. But inequalities in power (handled with supremacy intents), social class, money, racism and resources at local, national and even global levels can make the circumstances of people’s daily lives more challenging. In turn, such circumstances can make people more vulnerable to…continue reading →

History Cannot Be Changed. History Can Be only Celebrated. The American Black History Month. Observation since 1976 by President Gerald Ford and after him by President Ronald Reagan in 1986

This blog article is written and edited by the free (Anti-Trump) Italian citizen Cristina Capucci. In 1976 Gerald Ford was the first President of United States of America to recognize Black History Month, calling upon Americans to “…seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history” Black History Month is celebrated annually in February to honor, highlight and celebrate African American Leaders and their meaningful accomplishments. Ever since 1976, each President (as initially suggested by President Gerald Ford) sets a theme for…continue reading →
Mindfulness and Radical Transformation

Mindfulness and Radical Transformation

Everyone can use mindfulness to be a better version of himself and herself making effective changes and progress through life. We can reduce stress, be more present to ourselves, our spouse, our children, our family and be less reactive. We can even have better sex. That’s fine. We can also use mindfulness as part of a radical self transformation process. By transformation, I mean to change the fundamental way we relate to ourselves, others, and the world. By radical I don’t mean and total departure from the the habitual sense of self. Gone…continue reading →
Moving Beyond the Presence. A State of Mind Between  Mindfulness and Equanimity

Moving Beyond the Presence. A State of Mind Between Mindfulness and Equanimity

Equanimity, one of the most sublime and elevate emotions of Buddhist practice, is the manifested presence of wisdom and freedom as the protectors of true compassion and true love. Generally, equanimity is considered something of dry neutrality or cool stillness, but in reality a mature equanimity produces a radiance and warmth of being. In fact the Buddha described a person filled with equanimity as “abundant, exalted, immeasurable, without hostility, and without ill-will.” In the Buddhist tradition, the term “equanimity” (Upeksha in Sanskrit) is meant as complex construct that has been given multiple definitions…continue reading →

The Integrative Thinking: Learn How to Solve Problems by Personalizing and Developing Mental Models Based on Experience

Our life journey is a search for answers to problems, for solutions and/or strategies to reach our goals. For each of us, the answers we come up with depend on the mental models we form based on personal knowledge system, which in its turn is made up of 3 elements:  Identity: our stance is our answer to, “Who am I in the World, and What am I Trying to Accomplish?”Tools: with what tools and models of reference do we organize our thinking and understand the world? Experience: with what experiences do we build our…continue reading →
State-of-the-Art of Artificial Intelligence. Will Human-like “Consciousness” Be ever Achievable by Robots?

State-of-the-Art of Artificial Intelligence. Will Human-like “Consciousness” Be ever Achievable by Robots?

Is Consciousness 'just' an attribute of our brain's neural network activity or an interplay of neural network with 'substrates' of consciousness and the reality/world models and their perception? Consider the possibility of a future intelligent system having an artificial brain with trillions of interconnecting neural nets equally simulating our own brain and armed with perhaps millions of algorithms possible thanks to an even more accurate neuroscience neuro mapping of the human brain and its functioning. Can we consider that a conscious artificial human entity? A number of scientists are looking at the development…continue reading →
Exploring Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Beyond. 10 Insights from AI Experts

Exploring Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Beyond. 10 Insights from AI Experts

Artificial Intelligence (AI), is a field of Cognitive Sciences which dates back to 1956.  During a conference held at Dartmouth College campus (USA), the MIT Cognitive Scientist, Marvin Minsky, said, "Within a generation... the problem of creating "artificial intelligence" will substantially be solved." He was right. But in those years researchers were still far from having machines that have could make the most basic things ”in the way” humans and animals can do. Nowadays the situation is exponentially changed: this is the era of deep learning, the era of when machines are starting…continue reading →
Artificial Intelligence: Does Consciousness Matter?

Artificial Intelligence: Does Consciousness Matter?

Consciousness plays an important role in debates around the mind-body problem, the controversy over strong vs. weak artificial intelligence (AI), and bioethics. Strikingly, however, it is not prominent in current debates on ethical aspects of AI and robotics. This text explores this lack and makes two claims: We need to talk more about artificial consciousness and we need to talk more about the lack of consciousness in current robots and AI. Can Machines Have Consciousness? The question of whether machines can have consciousness is not new, with proponents of strong artificial intelligence (strong…continue reading →
