…”Energy to matter is simple. Confine enough energy to a density that exceeds it’s magnetic wave and you start to achieve mass.”

Can you spot the Earth from this photo?

My name is Richard, and I’d like to take some time to address some things here that I feel are currently having a great impact on the world as we know it.
But before I start, I want to make clear just a couple of things. First off, I would like to make clear that I am not trying to say that the Earth is doomed on some mysterious date.

Nor, am I trying to focus on the doomsday scenarios that are speculated to occur in the year 2012.
What I “AM” going to address are some of the theory’s about the technological singularity currently being discussed by many of today’s top theoretical physicists, mathematical engineers, internet and network professionals, heads of states, business professionals around the world, sociologists, medical professionals, and even the casual observer.

This will be my first post on this blog.

I will admit that I’m not the greatest when it comes to submitting any kind of completed material on a specific schedule though. Seems too much like work to me. So, don’t be surprised if you come to find that I’ve just been using this page to work out my notes. Check the pages though because I do find that I prefer to submit finished, or at least more complete writings rather than the little pieces I assume traditionally gets posted on pages like this.

So that said, I guess I’ll go ahead and write a little bit on some of the ideas and thoughts that I’m still working out.
Ideas like,

How I am going to adequately describe some of the observations I’ve made that suggest we are a lot further into this model than some are even aware….?

Technological singularity:
A predicted point in the development of a civilization at which technological progress accelerates beyond the ability of present-day humans to fully comprehend or predict.

Ray Kurzweil,” is associated with the popular interpretation of the Technological Singularity, often referred to as the accelerating change thesis. In his book The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology Kurzweil defined the Technological Singularity as:

“… a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed. Although neither utopian nor dystopian, this epoch will transform the concepts that we rely on to give meaning to our life’s, from our business models to the cycle of human life, including death itself.” Ray Kurzweil
In his essay, The Law of Accelerating Returns, Ray Kurzweil proposes a generalization of Moore’s law that forms the basis of many people’s beliefs regarding the Singularity. Moore’s law describes an exponential growth pattern in the complexity of integrated semiconductor circuits. Kurzweil extends this to include technologies from far before the integrated circuit to future forms of computation. He believes that the exponential growth of Moore’s law will continue beyond the use of integrated circuits into technologies that will lead to the Singularity.

The law described by Ray Kurzweil has in many ways altered the public’s perception of Moore’s law. It is a common (but mistaken) belief that Moore’s law makes predictions regarding all forms of technology, when really it only concerns semiconductor circuits. Many futurologists still use the term “Moore’s law” to describe ideas like those put forth by Kurzweil.

However, the term is commonly misunderstood to mean technological progress will rise to infinity, as happens in a mathematical singularity.
But, this is not wholly accurate. The term was chosen as a metaphor from physics rather than mathematics: as one approaches the Singularity, models of the future become less reliable, just as conventional models of physics break down as one approaches a gravitational singularity.

  1. Excellent site. Although it’s kind of difficult to follow at times, i think I’m starting to understand some of your ideas on energy.
    Do you really think 3D printing wil have a big impact on society? And if so, do you have any specific thoughts on how?

  2. I’m here to say hello to Rick. Interesting Welcome page, wasn’t expecting what I read and I had to poke around a bit before I settled back here to reply. I fascinated with what I’ve read so far; as it parallels some of my own thinking. Mind you I’m purely theoretical; and though weak in some areas of mathematics, not all of them come into play all the time. Naturally, linear algebra, for me is an exception; though I’m always learning more even on that. But, I don’t much care for describing everything as a probability like QM; so, in many ways I’m more a DeBroglie-Bohm kind of guy, or Bohmian mechanics; though I think, based on my current understand, they don’t go far enough.

    I’m working on, if you can believe it, a bosonic model of an electron, or if not electron, at least I would agree it’s a 1/2 spin ‘something’. So, I’m writing as you asked, and at least my initial fears I was walking into an EU den of lions has subsided a bit, quite a bit; I have trepidations and have not been immune to attack and scoffing. No matter how many times I say ‘theory’, some people don’t seem to hear me, or don’t know what that means. lol. Although to most people who know me; I seen to be for the most part an ordinary fellow. My wife thinks I spend too much time bordering on the insanity side of genius (if I’m actually allowed to say that) or at the very least, quote “too much time down the rabbit hole.”. My catch phrase for allowing my mind to wander in the approaching zero and/or infinity zone. ;-) So, I’ll make a first statement regarding my thoughts and theory… I probably spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about 1/2 planck, which should be enough to label me as a screw ball. OTOH, I find that I’m in surprising agreement with the statement “”Energy to matter is simple. Confine enough energy to a density that exceeds it’s magnetic wave and you start to achieve mass.” as a whole, if not in every parametric; but I need to hear more! XD I’m undecided. – Chip Cooper aka Cyberchipz

    • Welcome Chip!

      It looks as though you do indeed have alerts set. He he. :)

      I’ve sent you a personal email making a little clearer my intentions for luring you to my den, hopefully you’ll find what I’ve said a little more reassuring. lol

      Hope you get a chance to look around a little more, and please feel free to leave comments. Thesingularityeffect welcomes any and all civil discussions relating to the areas of science and technology.


      • I hope that you find me, if anything, civil. :-) I believe that when one is reduced to ad hominem attacks, it’s a sign that that individual knows they have lost the argument, and is instead defending a belief system. Which I might add, that although I do support people in their belief systems; I don’t subscribe to rude logic as the desired response for me and instead treat it as a logical ‘request for dismissal’ of the argument and promptly close the argument or discourse.

      • I apologize if I said anything rude. I don’t recall anything specific I might have said to offend you. Hopefully I just missed something in your comment here and it doesn’t actually have anything to do with me. (That’s been known to happen.) :)

        Anyway, like I said. I apologize if I offended you in some way.


  3. Thank you. I appreciate the support. I’ll do my best to write a little more often. Please feel free to suggest any topic you feel is relevant. Also, please feel free to examine my other singularity blog. thesingularityeffect.wordpress. And again, thank you.
