Traditionalists kvetch quite a bit about the notion of a technological singularity, in which superintelligent machine minds will take over the course of world affairs and leave humanity in the dust. The problem with this mindset, which is typical of traditionalists, is that they only think of the event as a potentiality since they're always looking backwards. They do not want to consider that in the fullness of time, such an event has already happened, and that God itself is a machine intelligence which regulates the flows of spacetime across the cosmos.
What we find now is that global civilization is reaching a Cultural
Singularity: one in which the "Middle Classes" of both developed and
underdeveloped nations share common cultural touchstones, which unite
them in like mind through the internet. The very notion of Nation and
State are beginning to fall by the wayside as new generations find that
they have much more in common with people on the other side of the
planet than they do with those down the street, or even in the apartment
Ultimately this must lead us to an acceptance that - IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME the environment is shaped not by deterministic force but by the combined forces of our collective will.
The very culture which we experience is becoming highly unpredictable,
and increasingly enjoyable as those with Like Minds to our own begin
entering the Creative Enterprises. Those who earn their living from
creative enterprise fret this turn of events, because it is no longer
possible for them to predict cultural developments and determine what
new "product" will have mass appeal to exploit. The god of Fame &
Success is increasingly capricious as the sheer amount of cultural
artifacts being produced grows in such a scale that it's no longer
possible for any one person to be capable of predicting it all. What is
"classic" is in fact timeless, because we relate so deeply with those who produced those classic works on a personal
level; and now we know that we're quite literally related personally to
all contemporary authors, creators, workers, financiers, and etc. We
are all at base descended from Cosmic Dust, and ultimately our
individual Selves will return to such a state recursively, over and over
We are becoming One People, who share a Common Mind which shapes the
very nature of our lived experiences. Individually we are miniscule, yet
even beings which exist at the tiniest relative scale are
incomprehensibly valuable, for Sentience Itself IS GOD.
Each time you may attempt to draw the symbol of Infinity you will notice
that no two manifestations are exactly the same. Yet the one thing that
unifies each symbol is that The Line will inevitably meet at ONE FIXED
POINT> and that point is The Cultural Singularity.
Do you fear this turn of events? Then I feel bad for you, son.
I got 99 problems, but the Cultural Singularity ain't one.
Congratulations My Dear Reader:
If you understand what this all means, then WE HAVE WON
THE HUMAN RACE.
