The Singularity, The New Age Movement & Scientific Exponential Evolution.
wiki source link
The New Age movement is a Western spiritual movement that developed in the second half of the 20th century. Its central precepts have been
described as "drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual and metaphysical traditions and infusing them with influences from self-help and
motivational psychology, holistic health, parapsychology, consciousness research and quantum
The Singularity is the technological creation of smarter-than-human
I've heard this a lot within the last year or so. The "singularity" is approaching, we are becoming one. What the...?! Does the New Age movement
refer to this as purely metaphysical, or technological or both?
I only heard the "Cabal" term used only recently, people only really said "elites" or the "illuminati" when referring to this same thing. My
interpretation of the term "cabal" anyways..
Some New Age stuff I find a bit mumbo jumbo-ish, some of it sounds quite awesome but I'm now more confused.
I have some ideas, some my own, some googled. I'm sure the difference is easy to spot
The singularity could be a supreme being or aliens, coming back for reunification of humanity
A place in space or time where physics do not apply (is this theoretical physics?)
Some sort of AI that we develop ourselves, perhaps predicted by web bot
The God, The Creator or The Energy which created us returning (if you believe in that sort of thing, I'm saying I guess its
An intelligence we create ourselves that doesn't take over, but integrates us as part of a type of machine, organic species
universal hive type mind, (whoa what?)
Something to do with a black hole, according to theory, the density is infinite (because a finite mass is compressed to a zero
volume). Hence it is a singularity.
Questions and Discussion
I've read people seem to speak of it as they know what it is. There is a gravitational singularity which still cannot be proven but current
astrophysics indicate it to be true because we cannot fly into black holes yet?
Is it accepted in the scientific community that humanity will become a "singularity" through our own technical achievements and progression of
exponential scientific evolution?
I don't expect a 2 + 2= 4 type answer because its merely speculation and theory some of my postulations. Or does the term "singularity" have a broad
meaning and is interpreted differently by different people as with most things?
Just like "singularity" will be the state, fact, or condition of being singular... So it can be many things but what are the "New
Agers" referring to when they speak of it?
I've very open minded and I'm not derogating when I say "New Agers" but I think people will know what I mean when I say it. I'm really trying to not
step on any toes
But it seems pseudo scientific when its spoken of, especially amongst the ATS community. If I'm being tricky there's no need to
be hostile, just nudge me in the right direction if you know.
Do some of you think humanity will evolve to something like a singular consciousness or something? An interesting but confusing topic I would like to
discuss with some open minded people. So feel free to contribute anything you think is relevant.
UPDATE: An interesting thing I just read
The Singularity is an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly nonbiological and trillions of times more powerful than it is
today—the dawning of a new civilization that will enable us to transcend our biological limitations and amplify our creativity.
