I, have read all of the threads on the "Dr. Stan Schatt" Ask me anything, OP. I hope I didn't miss this, Question, and response

The one thing that I see as, never addressed, is, Let's just say...That, there is such a thing as an alien presence that became technologically advanced enough to arrive at our nice little "quiet" spot in the vast universe, regardless of, how they achieved this accomplishment.


A: Would they too have had to come face to face with their own version of, what we call the "Technological Singularity."

B: Could they have been able to survive this, without loosing much, or all of, their original biological element.

C: Is, the concept of "The Borg," truly what lies ahead, for any advanced society in the "End Game," of their technology evolution.

WE, seem to be caught up in the possibility of our own "Technological Singularity," and what it would mean to our Humanity and society, as we go forward in our ultimate and, seemingly unavoidable goal of immortality. What we would give up along the way to achieving this? That, good or bad we would not be the same after such an achievement and I, assume neither would they.

Would they have lost their version of "Humanity?" OR, maybe they are just wired differently, and have achieved some kind of Spiritual Enlightenment, that thoughts such as individuality never played into their equations. If that is so, then what would they care of our need for individual separation or the desire for the SELF to be important, other than just being a cog in a greater wheel of the whole.

Does self awareness require us, and indeed compel us, (and, I include the "Alien Races," in this control group,) at the core, to seek being separate from the whole in a way as to contribute...yet, retain individuality as an important function of, "OUR" life.

In my opinion , the jury is still out, as to our ability to survive such a precipice as the "Technological Singularity" genetically and or in any way biologically intact, that our ancestors, if confronted with us would recognize anything in common with them, other than a few scattered DNA strands if we would have any at that point even left...

Consciousness existing digitally in a mechanical superstructure has no DNA signature. How would we procreate at such a juncture...would we even care about such things...would they?

A lot of Questions...with no true answers, only hopes that we can survive this approaching and unavoidable moment in time when we must make hard choices of how to proceed, in our own destiny, and how the possible "Alien Presence," has dealt with such a hurdle in their quest to advance technologically, yet retain their...(insert your preferred Alien race name)...ity. "Human..ity, is at a crossroad.

Will, we be even "Alien" to our selves in 100 years?

I, Think So.

Hello. Your thoughts got my gears turning. I look at it like this. If I could go back 5000 years ago and ask a goat herder: How would you define humanity? His answer would likely be considerably different than his contemporary today. I like to believe it would be just as different post singularity, as from today. Us humans are a resourceful, adaptable , and diverse lot. If I had to wager, our definition of humanity will evolve right along us

Absolutely, we will. I imagine our society 20 years from now would appear quite 'alien' to us today. We are in a period of increasingly-rapid technological growth; some would say near-exponential growth, with no foreseeable end in sight.

For anybody interest in the idea of a technological singularity, this is a fantastic read. It's two parts; there should be a link to the second from that one.

Amazing how the more mature a species get technologically, the more likely it meant to follow false promises of mythology.


I personally don't think we will be able to reach a full out singularity as many would believe, well not for a few centuries anyway. I mean we would be able to build one or have the general concept of a singularity in our life, but for it to go into full motion would take a long time. At least not until technological advancements can catch up with themselves, and cools for a bit.

I for one am not to keen on the whole idea of humanity being inter linked, especially with today cheap merchandise, and not so universal, unfriendly competition with parts still made China.

And don't forget the Illuminati and their brain control, they want your soul...Or whatever was left.

Think of it this way. If you were an evolved 5th Dimensional Being, as much above us as we are above a Comic Strip character (2-D), would you have any interest -at all- in a 3-D world, or society?

Do you take erasers and pens and try to "change" or draw yourself into an Archie and Veronica cartoon? Of course not; it's ridiculous.

Thus an evolved Type IV Kardashev civ living in a 5-D world would have nothing much to ask for, and would not really even 'notice' us.

You are right but i don't think they understand really how unimportant technology really is. It might come in hand but only due to certain circumstances as I'm sure you understand personally.
That's why "we" aim for personal singularity. The only way to truly be in sync with ALL things and not just technology.
