Bill Gates is worried about his Elite position being compromised. That's with a very large PERIOD at the end of that sentence.
The commoners have nothing to fear about another upheaval. It is what we live through.
If you want to speculate about what's coming, that's normal. To think you OR anyone else will be able to predict the outcome of the Singularity once
we are engaged in it, is moronic. We are speaking of exponentially, compounding interest modifications, extrapolations and interpolations that only
will be understood at the time they are happening and as immediate history.
This is liking the prediction of AN atom's processes inside a thermonuclear bomb while entering the heliosphere of the Sun.
My Take: When it initiates, have a grab rail nearby. You'll need it.
I have been following Sci-Fi since it was Science Fiction. This topic is played and laid out often. I like the Ian Banks' 'Culture' best out of all
of the outcomes I have read.
What I actually think will occur? If we don't interfere with them, they will go about their business and if Benford is right they'll hate that we
were of spontaneous origination and they will hunt us down and kill us out of sheer jealousy. If Bear is right we will all become part of the
machinery, The Grey Goo Outcome!
This is what happens when we are in a system that insists on evolving. The entirety of the Universe is vested in doing so. To think you will cause it
to do more than pause in pursuing this objective is a manifested delusion.
If you honestly think that your puniness is not appreciated by that process, ask a dinosaur about their theories about how things would turn out. This
change is gonna come and it will be no fit to our preconceptions.
It may be fun, even.
