The technological singularity is a hypothesised point in the future variously characterized by the technological creation of self-improving intelligence, unprecedentedly rapid technological progress, or some combination of the two.
DARPA is the fountainhead agency, and they overtly work directly with NASA on NASA's "Intelligent Archives" (IA) project. DARPA's AGI programs, beyond their current successes, are slated for going fully operational by 2012, while NASA's IA is slated for 2011. NASA is the important link, between DARPA and Google.
Artificial Intelligence is a commonly known concept. The full understanding of it, and the military establishments extensive programs in it are quite the opposite. It's not even something they're keeping all too secret, however the American and World Public are being completely blindsided by this coming reality that is sure to change the world as we know it like history has never seen before nor will be able to predict it's outcome.
And then there exists the military establishments extensive programs in "self-aware" "cognitive" AGI platforms, and their direct partnership and history with Google in this all-encompassing multi-agency initiative.
The push for AGI is broad in scope and width and breadth. The effort is comparable to a modern day "Manhattan Project", only this time it's not even being kept secret, despite the fact that only handfuls of the public sector have any idea of it's existence. This issue is almost completely blacklisted by the mainstream Media, especially on TV, despite it being the most significant area that can be found publicly on DARPA's very own website, for starters. DARPA is the DOD agency responsible for technologies such as UAV's & the Internet itself, and it isn't as if the Media is ignorant to DARPA or their other programs.
This exponential rate of progression isn't limited to the mere ML concept or computers alone. That "Law" is merely an aspect of "LoAR", which can be traced back to the stone age, and involves all technological progress in general. Progress 'began' in the Stone Age, which took eons because they were using stones and sticks to make new tools. Eventually man used his stone and wooden tools to progressively master into the Bronze Age, and then those tools brought the Iron Age in far shorter time than the original Stone Age Ad infinitum exponentially into the Industrial Age, and so on.
DARPA is the fountainhead agency, and they overtly work directly with NASA on NASA's "Intelligent Archives" (IA) project.

It unveils the governments numerous and ongoing programs related to A.I., "NBIC", the "Global Information Grid", nanotechnology, biotechnology, autonomous drones, "naval sea-bases", space weapons, weather modification… or more directly: domestic and global totalitarian technological domination. American Imperialism meets Artificial Intelligence.

Their AI system will be a Hybrid of silicon, biological, and nano processors. Biological means "humanized" rat brain neurons (or worse). The software will be math models of biological brain functions. It will be a beast 'brain' by definition, and the implants will each be marks of the beast by defintion. Neural implants will provide holographic mental imagery, a completely delusional reality offering drug like experiences.
Revelation prophecy mentions "worshipping" the "beast" and its "image" in the "forehead".. TEN TIMES! But millions will line up to get our totalitarian governments' implants, because bias marches on!
The Mayan Calendar makes a good case to account for the Evolution and Time while maintaining a 7-day creation based on cycles. The cycles work like gears that get smaller as time moves on. They calculated is using advanced astrology. New Agers make a case for a "Transformation of Conciousness" when the Mayan calendar ends in 2012. They claim we'll be like a hive mind with telepathy. The real transformation will be when DARPA's AI goes online. The real mass telepathy would be the brain-implants. Do you really think God mapped out the stars to tell us to worship this manmade "God on Earth" after Revelations warned against it??
To what length will Gore go to 'save the earth'? Can the man who 'create[d] the Internet' take the next step and 'create' the artificial intelligence Technological Singularity in time to save the earth?

first of all there is no proof whatsoever that the mayan calendar ends in 2012 none at all, and all this nonsensical hype about nibiru are what scaremongers (sitcin)have conjured up to make money (books) weve got more chance of winning the lottery than the winged disk flying by and aliens showing themselves and what ill be doing on 21.12.2012 will be the same thing i probablys done the year before which is going out with friends etc, then on the 22.12.2012 ill will be waking up having some breakfast enjoying my time off work

Dec. 21, 2012 is the Friday before Christmas.
What I think will really happen is this:
The office is going to be quiet and almost empty, because a lot of people take off time near Christmas, so work is going to be easy.
I'm going to leave a little early to get a head-start on my Christmas vacation, because I like to take some days off such that my "home" time during the holdiays is maximized.
I'll probably have a drink or 2, stay up late on the computer, maybe partake in some additional libations, certainly will be "entertaining" the wife, you know, Friday, holiday, the planets will have aligned...
I wonder how much we'll be paying for gas then. It seems so far away.
12/21/2012? Just another "last day of work before Christmas Holiday"...
That's my prediction. Not as sexy as all the others, but I'd put money down...
There are no evidence of that the Mayan Calendar ends in this century in the first place.

I think that governments are trying to create something in 2012. There's nothing more powerful, I believe, than the human mind. What it believes is unquestionable reality for that person, and if a mass of people believe something it becomes true

I beg to differ when someone says the Mayan calendar has not been translated.

A diary found which was said to belong to Nostradamus has shows a drawing on the last pages of "the wheel of time" ending, with a constellation combination that dates in 2012, yet he was not familiar with the Mayan calendar. This is just one small example of the coincidental "connections" that make this date
