What The Singularity Really Is

It is not the technology itself that is our “future”—the AI, the Cloud, becoming cyborgs, and so on. Rather, they are “mirrors” or templates for what the next stage of evolution might look and be like.

For example, when you read or watch science fiction in which people are “uploaded” to the Cloud…that’s a very precise metaphor for dimensions in which souls interact without form. The Cloud brings the astral/psychic space, the realm where thoughts are the reality.

Artificial Intelligence is a metaphor for ourselves—how we were created, how we evolved, and our relationship with Creator.

The Road To 2020: The Soul Is Impatient

er.jpg

One of the biggest themes I’ve come across in my meditations on 2020 and our future is the concept of the Soul being “impatient.” There is this vastly increased desire to “get to the point” and be aligned with your life’s purpose—and this sense of urgency is, I believe, what we are experiencing now and have experienced for the last few years.

Moon Colonies To Happen “Sooner Than You Think”

The United States Department Of Commerce today released an “Op-Ed” regarding the future of space travel. This post was published on a day that is resonant with three significant events related to the topic:

  1. 1961: JFK asks Congress to support the burgeoning U.S. space program.
  2. 1977: Star Wars is released in theaters.
  3. 2012: SpaceX Dragon becomes the first commercial spacecraft to visit the International Space Station.

Building BabyX

The company Soul Machines, based in Auckland, New Zealand, has a unique approach to creating virtual humans. Their hyper-realistic “BabyX” is not merely the result of advanced 3D digital rendering.

Rather, BabyX has been built layer by layer—brain with bloody eyeballs attached, full neural system, and so on. The brain itself is structured to mimic a human brain—possessing a basal ganglia, an amygdala, the thalamus, and so on. Taking a more granular view, the brain chemistry operates on the interaction of virtual serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine.

Elon Musk Believes The Only Way Humans Can Survive AI Is To Become One With It

It never fails to impress me how some the very same people who are pushing and popularizing and creating and making money off of increasingly advanced AI are also the ones continually touting their “dangers.” Case in point: Elon Musk, who recently reiterated his sentiment that advanced artificial intelligence is going to be a “dangerous situation” for humans.

In this talk at the World Government Summit in Dubai Musk went one step further: suggesting that humanity’s only hope might be to merge their minds with AI:

Future Shock: What The Next Decade Might Be Like

AC_101_SDR_MARKETING_STILL_06r.jpeg

I have been studying the topic of “futurology” for several years, and while I don’t claim to be an expert by any stretch of the imagination, I feel confident in saying that I really really really don’t think the public at large is prepared for the sorts of radical changes we will face in only just 3-5 years or so; not to mention within the next decade.

Rather, I don’t think the American public is prepared. I think the United States is stuck in a mire at present, its government making really bad choices that we won’t see the full impact of until years from now.
