On the basis of the accelerating technological development inherent in The Law of Accelerating Returns the future "technological singularity" (in which humans will be semi-aware components of a computerised social structure) will be of such complexity that no one person or group of persons can understand more than a tiny fraction of the whole. We must eventually make the transition to a "runaway positive feedback loop" in high-level autonomous machine computation. The result is a technological Omega Point, in which our human tools eventually completely surpass human capacities.


...discuss :tazz: .

That should read 'discourse' not 'disco' but hey I'm all up for far out disco!

To start us off then, will we end up an oblivious part of the machine?

If there is much more of Google to come I fear this may be so.
