The Technological Singularity (or simply the Singularity) is “… a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed. Although neither utopian nor dystopian, this epoch will transform the concepts that we rely on to give meaning to our lives, from our business models to the cycle of human life, including death itself.” – Ray Kurtzweil
The Singularity is the theoretical emergence of super-intelligence through technological means. Since the capabilities of such intelligence would be difficult for an unaided human mind to comprehend, the Technological Singularity is seen as an occurrence beyond which events cannot be predicted.
The Singularity marks a point after which events cannot be predicted and past narratives no longer inform present situations.
Nothing that happens post-Singularity will resemble in any way anything that happened pre-Singularity.
The Singularity effectively erases the story of our past by doing away with our ability to accurately imagine the future.
The Singularity Is Near is a speculation of the unimaginable; a research of accumulation and total inclusion. As with garbage, rabbits and information technology, over-crowding of influence culminates in relations and populations so complex that we are compelled towards fundamental change.
Inclusion merges with speed on a field of absolute association beyond which looms an event horizon where nothing can be predicted.
We move, all of us, everything, towards It. The Singularity is Near.
