The Singularity, A diabolical Alien Plot?

OR “God realization” for scientists or “Nirvana” for nerds?

The Singularity is a predicted future event believed to precede immense technological progress in an unprecedentedly brief time. Futurists give varying predictions as to the extent of this progress, the speed at which it occurs, and the exact cause and nature of the event itself.

The concept, put forth primarily by mathematician Vernor Vinge states the acceleration of technological progress has been the central feature of this century. He argues that we are on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life on Earth. The precise cause of this change is the imminent creation by technology of entities with greater than human intelligence. Currently the idea is being popularized by Ray Kurzweil. (The Singularity is Near.)

The idea that technology will soon spawn the birth of some form of Artificial General Intelligence which is smarter-than-human includes borg-like technology and projects which seek to combine computers with human brains, currently under the guise of science that is being done for “the good of mankind.”

Not everyone agrees with exactly how the singularity will happen of course.

I’ll go out on a limb here and say that the idea of the singularity is the atheist scientist’s answer to becoming one with the Universe, or one with “God.”(without actually believing in God of course.)

Instead of “God realization” the scientist will perhaps hook himself up to a computer and become one with — well, all known information. I’ll call it being “One with the Universal data base.” (Ken MacLeod describes the Singularity as “the Rapture for nerds” in his 1998 novel The Cassini Division.)

(Well I guess we all have to aspire towards something greater than ourselves, even if we don’t believe in a higher Intelligence like God.)

So the singularity is the idea that technology will create this super intelligence that will be like a God to scientists, who will gleefully hook their brains up to in order to have access to all information in the known physical universe.

From China, here’s one of the mad scientists at work below:

Robotic scientists in China have succeeded in ‘controlling’ live mice.
Experts at the robot research centre in Shandong Technology University controlled white mice by stimulating micro-electrodes on their heads. The mice obeyed computer-generated commands to, in succession, “turn left”, “turn right” and “move forward”.

Project manager Su Xuecheng said animal robot research is the merger of electronic communication and biology, creating a new scientific discipline. Scientists believe it will eventually lead to new ways of curing disabilities as electronic signals are used to replace damaged nerves.”

Now while there may be some scientists who actually believe these projects will benefit mankind, and indeed some may, I suspect the worst. Something on the order of the movie “Terminator” or “I, Robot” comes to mind, but it is worse than that.

If you will note in the above paragraphs, the mouse was “controlled” by stimulating micro-electrodes in the head. Now I imagine that if the mouse obeyed his commands, he was given a reward. Food probably. I also imagine if he did not obey, then he did not get his reward or may have even been given a shock of some kind for his disobedience.

Can you see where I am going with this? If you don’t I will spell it out for you.

What:

Someone obviously wants to create a race of obedient slaves who have both the qualities of a human and a computer.

Who:

Who would want to do such a horrible thing? Humans? (If so, they would have to be very diabolical humans, and I don’t think humans are that evil.) So who then?

I suspect that this technology, once developed, will be placed into the hands of a cold blooded reptilian-type race of beings who will try to use it to enslave mankind. I could be wrong now, but I don’t think so.

Why?

Scientists involved in this type of technology, just like the scientists who helped create weapons of mass destruction and biological war fair, probably think they are doing something “for the good of mankind.” Or else they are just greedy and doing it for money.

But governments have proven to be a little on the evil side, and there are some people in this world who play the game of war for profit. Are there really human beings in this world who are that diabolical or are we keeping company with an advanced race of non-human, cold-blooded aliens who are plotting to take over the world? I don’t know the answer to this, I can’t prove it, but I ask you to pay attention. Something is happening right under our noses, very slowly, very silently. There is a predator living among us.

Does this sound a little like science fiction to you? Well perhaps it is. And perhaps I just don’t want to believe that any human would be that diabolical. Humans are spiritual beings.

Will they succeed?

In the end, they will fail. They will do their worst but they will fail in the end. The reason I believe this is not because I think some God is going return to earth to save us. They will fail because they lack imagination, feeling and compassion. All they have is technology, which to us ignorant human beings seems like intelligence or even magic. They are not advanced spiritual beings. They are not Gods. They will fail in the end with their technology. Technology is only useful in the physical third density reality. (Yes, there are other dimensional realities where the power of thought and feeling is all that is required.)

The technological singularity will not happen. Aliens will fail to enslave mankind with their technology. Scientists will not reach (or create) their god of artificial general intelligence. The reason they will fail?

They are all still trapped inside a very small box.

This is not to say that things are not going to get a lot weirder in the next 25 years. Maybe a lot sooner than that. In fact, I predict within 6-8 years you are going to think you stepped into the twilight zone.

  1. I agree with most of each point. In particular: Will They Succeed? I say Hell No! Like you I believe They lack the imagination to pull it off. Interesting that you mention compassion in the same sentence; a great believer in Science, I propose imagination is most reactive in the presence of compassion. Catalysis in the language of Chemistry.

    Like a salmon in the presence of digestive enzymes, imagination dissects into useful bits when our want for betterment neccessitates it.

    Perhaps one entity — God — will save the day. Perhaps this God possesses compassion enough to show us the Way.

    Sure can’t say you’re wrong!

    But do suggest if I may: on behalf of the peaceful inhabitants of Planet Earth please don’t sell us short. Nor yourself; between you & the rest of us who want to I say!

    Humankind has enough compassion to imagine our own ways to get the job done. I bet my life on it.

    Yeah — but when I got to…I’m not scared to Pray.

  2. on a counter point we dont need a race of reptiles to be behind this. are you forgetting it was humans who enslaved native american and humans who enslaved the african population. humans have a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery long history of brutality and slavery and if given the chance to create a new breed of slave one who couldnt revolt even if they wanted to i wouldnt put is past many humans to do just that

  3. I don’t know about that. How do you know it was simply humans behind it? You can’t be sure. The human brain is part reptilian as you know. Perhaps some humans are just more reptilian than others. Perhaps David Icke is right, and there are reptiles who look human and can shape shift into reptilian creatures, who love war and instigate it for their own benefit.

    Do you think terrorists are who they claim or pretend to be? Have you not heard of terrorists who pretend to be Arab but in truth are CIA or MOSSAD? Happens all the time.

    So I see that you are down on the HUMAN RACE. I get it. You are probably human yourself, so you probably have low self esteem about being part of the human race. Humans are certainly not perfect, nor are they spiritually mature yet. They are still children. But they have feelings and emotions, something the aliens lack.

    But being of a scientific mind, you probably dismiss the idea of any non-human intelligent life form known as reptilians or aliens to even exist, so you have to blame absolutely everything on humans. You cannot change the consciousness of the human race by criticizing them. If you want change, the first step is to change yourself.

  4. oh please talk about being presumptuous beyond presumption. just because i believe in science i cant believe in metaphysics?? i believe in both, nor am i the first last or only one to do so. and i am not down on the human race i am just looking at history and using okams razor to explain things. but i am keenly aware that science hasnt yet explained everything aliens probably exist and humans can do stuff science simply hasnt been able to explain yet. but none of this contradicts the fact humans grew up in a brutal world with brutal instincts and brutal tendencies they needed to survive and we havent yet evolved past them. maybe there is a reptile race maybe not. but we dont need to insert one to explain the brutality of humans.

  5. I agree with that. After all, as I said, all humans have a bit of reptilian DNA. And yes, humans can be naturally brutal just as children can be very cruel. But children grow up and hopefully learn love and compassion. We are here, as a species, to evolve into beings with more compassion, and I believe that this is a diverse planet with other intelligent beings living here that we are not aware of. We may not even be at the top of the food chain.

    An interesting book to read is “The holographic Universe.” It is awesome.

  6. that is probably a good book but whenever i hear about a reptilian species coming to take over humans my eyes glaze over. and it isnt because i dont think it is possible it’s that i dont think it is very likely. heres the reason. it’s a matter of space. next to rodents and insects and maybe even beyond them humans are the most widely spread land based creature around. where practically everywhere from pole to pole and even in space. and we are becoming more invasive every day. with us in the way there isnt enough physical space on land so where would a reptilian species go? maybe the oceans and lakes you say. well thats possible but then they’d be less reptile and more fish or amphibian and very unconcerned with land because they couldnt live on most of it unlike us humans who live everywhere we can on the land. so if there was a reptile species out there they would be grinding us into burgers en masse. as for shape shifting i doubt it to much energy would need to be collected or released if they werent close to our size.

  7. though there is always the mimic hypothesis a very interesting movie raised an interesting point but they would still be limited because they wouldnt be able to stand up to in depth scrutiny they would receive in the light of day

  8. They (the reptilian race or snake people as some call them) live in underground cities of course and deep beneath the planet. They are afraid of humans and that is why they hide.

    Humans are more powerful than you realize. Humans outnumber them at this point. … Unless you believe that an invasion is coming from outer space (as some people do) from the Dracos of the Orion empire. Of course the Dracos are a different species, much more dangerous. Sounds like science fiction…. but it could be true.

    Do I believe any of this? I don’t know, but I have to say that I don’t disbelieve it either. I consider the possibility. Anything is possible. But there is certain evidence.

  9. have you ever seen a draco people? i believe in what i sense, that is mostly see. You can guess that what you read and hear is true, but the only truth in you own experiences and your own. You only know what “they” want you to know, do you really think that its just yourself that hides secrets? everyone has secrets, we may strive to find the awnser to life, we may put all our hope into one idea but in the end what you see is what you get, your life is your experience your unchangable path that has been choosen, you cannot change your fate because you do not know what the fate is, if you did find out your fate, and changed it then it would be your fate to find out and change it. thats what i believe

  10. circular logic is so nice isnt it. “they exist and we dont know it because they are all powerful and dont want us to know it. and the very lack of evidence of thier existence is obvious proof they exist”

  11. Yoshi.
    I know its hard to believe.
    But we have been lied to about the past events.
    They were set up by the reptilian-humanoids.
    The Governments, And Huge Businesses Are Ran By These Reptilian-Humanoids.

    9/11, as you know was set up by the Illuminati.
    Think about it, Most Of The High Government Members Are Jewish. How Else Would They Get A Reason To Attack Their Enemies { Muslims } ???
    9/11 was perfect for this.
    Now we are over in the Middle East
    Killing Innocent Arabs.
    When 9/11 had nothing to do with them.
    Not to mention, the twin towers were owned by a Israelite, Who had a relationship with Jewish members of the US Government ….

    Think About It.

  12. And no.
    Im not being racist at all towards Jewish People.
    Im just showing what these Reptilians Are Up To.
    And The Threat The Bring To Us.
    And Their Extremely Violent Manners.

  13. living underground is not possible for a carnivorous race. meat raising takes to much space. an acient race that was here before us never would have had the technology to vat grow meat. and if they did progress that far on this planet there would be remnants of an advanced civilization. thgey would have had to go through bronze age iron age industrial age information age and possibly beyond. think of our civilization. if every human vanished on the face of the earth buried remnants of our skyscrapers would be found hundreds of millions of years later buried and rusted but irrefutably artificially made. as for reptiles from space. i doubt it the closest stars are to far away from an alien race to come here and not overtly conquer. and dont tell me they couldnt. any race capable of beings able to travel between the stars would have the tech, the pure knowledge needed to crush us like ants.

  14. […] living in such a pivotal time, possibly just years away from achieving the technological “Singularity” predicted by some […]
