The Singularity denotes an event that will take place in the material world, the inevitable next step in the evolutionary process that started with biological evolution and has extended through human-directed technological evolution. however, it is precisely in the world of matter and energy that we encounter transcendence, a principal connotation of what people refer to as spirituality. Ray Kurzweil
Raymond “Ray” Kurzweil born February 12, 1948 (website) is an American author, inventor and futurist. He is involved in fields such as optical character recognition (OCR), text-to-speech synthesis, speech recognition technology, and electronic keyboard instruments. He is the author of several books on health, artificial intelligence (AI), transhumanism, the technological singularity, and futurism.
He has a track record for forecasting technical advances well in advance including, to the year, when a computer would beat the chess world champion! His explanation of technological exponential growth leading to singularity is incredibly frightening & exciting at the same time.
In 40 years the advancement of an IBM computer to a mobil phone is 1 Million times cheaper, 1000 times smaller & a 1000 times more powerful. That’s exponentially a 1 billion times increase in price performing computing.
At this same rate he calculates that biological intelligence will surpass non biological intelligence, by 2029, and singularity (i.e. where machines will be superior to humans by 2045). He may be out by the odd decade but the end result is a REAL possibility ! He predicts that by making todays mobil phone a billion times more advanced, we will soon have ‘processors’ the size of blood cells helping us live longer! Humans have advanced, up to a few hundred years ago, in a linear form:-
It took 400 years for 25% of the population to have access to printed material, it took 50 years for the same number to have a telephone, 7 years a cell phone , 3 years social networks and blogs and 2 years to twitter. This is the power of exponential growth. Technology is doubling each year which means every 7 years we are over 100 times more advanced i.e.
Todays 1, becomes next years 2, and so on 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, and seven years later 128
Nikolas Tesla. Ever heard of this man? Don’t worry you are not alone, even though he invented some of the most basic thing in our lives today such as, alternating Current (AC), Radio Communication, and Fluorescent Lighting. I hear you say didn’t Marconi invent the radio?
Having been born in the birth place of radio, Chelmsford, Essex, UK, the sites creator certainly believed Marconi did. However Tesla is credited with inventing modern radio since the US Supreme Court overturned Guglielmo Marconi’s patent in 1943 in favor of Tesla’s earlier patents. When an engineer (Otis Pond) once said to Tesla,
“Looks as if Marconi got the jump on you” regarding Marconi’s radio system, Tesla replied, “Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents.”
So why is Tesla such an unknown inventor? Why did we learn about Marconi and Emersion when it was Tesla who was the greater of these inventors? Nikola Tesla was Thomas Edison’s rival at the end of the 19th century. In fact, he was more famous than Edison throughout the 1890′s. His invention of polyphase electric power earned him worldwide fame and fortune. In total, Nikola Telsa was granted more than one hundred patents and invented countless unpatented inventions.
Tesla was a visionary and like most geniuses, such as Beethoven, he could visualise in his mind the finished work before he had started it. Although he was at one stage a multi millionaire he died literally a pauper. His forte was not business. Money was only a means to an end to allow further invention. His life’s purpose was to better the quality of human lives through technology.
Nikola Tesla – Mystery Invention. Ten years after patenting a successful method for producing alternating current, Nikola Tesla claimed the invention of an Electrical generator that would not consume any fuel. This invention has been lost to the public. Tesla stated about his invention that he had harnessed the cosmic rays and caused them to operate a distant device. I attach a documentary on his life, and inventions explaining why an invention to generate energy from the atmosphere, allowing transmission around the would without cables never saw the light of day.
Unfortunately this suppression still remains today which is explained along with modern day free energy in this short excerpt from Thrive
Tesla technology being used today in secretive US Military Installation. Are we making Holes in Heaven? HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a controversial high frequency radio transmitter, or “ionospheric heater,” which is believed to be descended from the works of Nikola Tesla and is operated by the U.S. Navy/Air Force and Phillip Laboratories in remote Gakona, Alaska. late Carl Sagan said (which is related to the next documentary):
We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We’ve also arranged things so that almost no one understands science or technology. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later, this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces. Using HAARP, the military can focus a billion-watt pulsed radio beam into our upper atmosphere, ostensibly for ionospheric research. This procedure will form extremely low frequency waves and send them back to the Earth, enhancing communications with submarines and allowing us to “see” into the Earth, detecting anything from oil reserves to underground missile silos.
However, statements and claims from several HAARP researchers indicate that this mechanism can and does pose many dangers, including blowing thirty-mile holes in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. They also warn of possible disruption of the subtle magnetic energies of our Earth and its inhabitants. Holes in Heaven? is a prime example of grassroots filmmaking by producer Paula Randol-Smith and Emmy-winning director Wendy Robbins.
Narrated by Martin Sheen, the documentary, investigates HAARP, its history and implications, and examines the dangers and benefits of high and low frequencies and of electromagnetic technology.
