I thought that by definition, singularity could not be understood by pre-singularity conceptualization. I suspect that if singularity occurs it will be a state that transcends this type of ideological conflict.

I agree that we just don't know what lies beyond the singularity, but...

But nothing. We just don't know.

Christ on a stick this has turned into a farce.

When materialists - or anyone else for that matter - derides something beyond their experiential range, I have little sympathy.

They don't understand magic. They don't understand integralism. They don't understand sustainable paradigms. They don't understand esoteric tradition. They don't understand socio-psychopharmacology.

Essentially, they haven't the faintest clue what they are talking about.

The 'movement' - or at least in that venue - seems to consist of broken, un-actualized minds who have fetishes for gizmos and gadgets. They want toys. Toys which further their concepts of power.

The Singularity has less to do with technology than it does with information and the fucking twats can't see the forest for the trees.

I shall ponder this unfortunate realization further. Generally I prefer to leave the materialists and scientific positivists to their ignorance. I've more important things to worry with.

Again, thanks for the posts - regardless of what a shit-storm they have inspired.

Namaste.

Yeah, it turned ugly
The shit-stormed has raged for a full seven days now. I think some good may come of it, but I'm done with it for now. Time to change focus.

Take care.
