Is artificial intelligence associated with chemist’s creativity represents a threat to humanity?

Abstract

Do you remember when Methistophiles caught Wagner bending over his smoking retort, and asked him “What is happening in here?” Wagner replied, “Be quiet. A wonderful work is ready to be accomplished. The construction of man is underway” (Schöne 1994). For many, many years, it has been the dream of chemists to create life from inanimate material. Now, there is the idea of something that thinks, even though it is not alive. In other words, we can now say that nothing separates the imaginary from the possible, nor the possible from the real. Those who think that “If I can imagine one thing, it is real,” confuse the reality of an image with the physical and practical reality of the object that it evokes.
