4 Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity

The Exponential Growth in Technology

Here is another remarkable statement from Ray Kurzweil:

My models show that we are doubling the paradigm-shift rate every decade. Thus, the 20th century was gradually speeding up to the rate of progress at the end of the century; its achievements, therefore, were equivalent to about twenty years of progress at the rate in 2000. We’ll make another twenty years of progress in just fourteen years (by 2014), and then do the same again in only seven years. To express this another way, we won’t experience one hundred years of technological advance in the 21st century; we will witness on the order of 20,000 years of progress (again, when measured by the rate of progress in 2000), or about 1,000 times greater than what was achieved in the 20th century.

The exponential growth of information technologies is even greater: we’re doubling the power of information technologies, as measured by price-performance, bandwidth, capacity and many other types of measures, about every year. That’s a factor of a thousand in ten years, a million in twenty years, and a billion in thirty years. This goes far beyond Moore’s law (the shrinking of transistors on an integrated circuit, allowing us to double the price-performance of electronics each year). Electronics is just one example of many. As another example, it took us 14 years to sequence HIV; we recently sequenced SARS in only 31 days - singularity.com.

If Kurzweil is correct in his calculations (and after all, he has inside information that the public has no access to), we are indeed close to the Singularity.

Here is more from Kurzweil; this time it’s about upgrading “human body version 1.0” (our current biological bodies/computers) to “version 2.0,” as I wrote about earlier this is the same allegory Dr. Jamisson Neruda uses in the Fifth Interview, by the way, posted on the WingMakers’ website.

In the book, I talk about three great overlapping revolutions that go by the letters “GNR,” which stands for genetics, nanotechnology, and robotics. Each will provide a dramatic increase to human longevity, among other profound impacts. We’re in the early stages of the genetics—also called biotechnology—revolution right now. Biotechnology is providing the means to actually change your genes: not just designer babies but designer baby boomers. We’ll also be able to rejuvenate all of your body’s tissues and organs by transforming your skin cells into youthful versions of every other cell type. Already, new drug development is precisely targeting key steps in the process of atherosclerosis (the cause of heart disease), cancerous tumor formation, and the metabolic processes underlying each major disease and aging process. The biotechnology revolution is already in its early stages and will reach its peak in the second decade of this century, at which point we’ll be able to overcome most major diseases and dramatically slow down the aging process.

That will bring us to the nanotechnology revolution, which will achieve maturity in the 2020s. With nanotechnology, we will be able to go beyond the limits of biology, and replace your current “human body version 1.0” with a dramatically upgraded version 2.0, providing radical life extension.

The “killer app” of nanotechnology is “nanobots,” which are blood-cell sized robots that can travel in the bloodstream destroying pathogens, removing debris, correcting DNA errors, and reversing aging processes, singularity.com.

According to Kurzweil, already less than ten years from now they will be able to reverse our aging process, and as he points out, it’s not just a matter of manipulating baby’s genes so that they won’t age after a certain number of years, but the baby boomers will also be able to reverse their genes and become younger. It soon gets obvious how the Movement is promoted; most people want to extend their lives because we have been indoctrinated to be afraid of death—the unknown—for many reasons. Immortality will be an incredible gift for many people, and they will probably not think twice about taking the Mark of the Beast. The AIF will use nanobots to replace the original cells in the body, and these nanobots will be able to reverse aging, or already aged bodies. Posthumans (Humans Version no. 2) will look as they did at their most desirable age; somewhere between 25-35 years old. Then they will supposedly stay that age for the rest of “eternity” in this very physical reality.

Posthumans will be electronically wired to the SBC and get access to a greater volume of their own brain. However, once hooked up, people can’t unhook themselves; hence, those who don’t want any part of this kind of future better act upon it now and begin the withdrawal process from having been involved in, and addicted to, electronics. There are those who say that electronics is more addictive than cocaine.

Are you addicted? One way to find out is if you can comfortably imagine a life without your smartphone, Internet, computers in general, and any other electronic devices you may possess. If the answer is yes, you are not addicted, but still need to be careful. If you’re uncertain, or if the answer is no, you’d better start working on yourself because the addiction will only get worse, and you will probably not even notice how you unwittingly step into the AI reality and the Singularity. It’s a good idea to use the Internet as little as possible and only look up information that is relevant to your progress—but only if absolutely necessary. From now on (if you haven’t started already), it’s the inside work, such as mediation, that will substitute the so-called information we get from the Internet. Probably more than 80% of what we read online is false. I suggest you read my e-book Beyond 2012—A Handbook for the New Era, where I include many helpful exercises that can very useful.

I still want the readers to understand that we all have free will, and anybody whose desire it is to hold onto all the electronics and ultimately become connected to an electronic super brain has all the right to follow that path; this book is only meant to give information so we all can make a conscious choice. I want my readers to at least consider an important part of the problem that has not yet been discussed. In essence, I am following Kurzweil’s advice that we need to be well informed before we make the final decision whether to become part of the Singularity or not.

Now, let’s discuss cyborgs for a moment. Why don’t we ask Kurzweil what he has to say about cyborgs and how and when we humans are supposed to experience this process? This is what he writes,

We’re already in the early stages of augmenting and replacing each of our organs, even portions of our brains with neural implants, the most recent versions of which allow patients to download new software to their neural implants from outside their bodies. In the book “The Singularity is Near” I describe how each of our organs will ultimately be replaced. For example, nanobots could deliver to our bloodstream an optimal set of all the nutrients, hormones, and other substances we need, as well as remove toxins and waste products. The gastrointestinal tract could be reserved for culinary pleasures rather than the tedious biological function of providing nutrients. After all, we’ve already in some ways separated the communication and pleasurable aspects of sex from its biological function, singularity.com.

As I’ve written earlier, in the center of the transformation is the nanobots; they are essential for Transhumanism to work. Kurzweil continues [my emphases],

[The third revolution is] [t]he robotics revolution, which really refers to “strong” AI, that is, artificial intelligence at the human level, which we talked about earlier. We’ll have both the hardware and software to recreate human intelligence by the end of the 2020s. We’ll be able to improve these methods and harness the speed, memory capabilities, and knowledge-sharing ability of machines.

We’ll ultimately be able to scan all the salient details of our brains from inside, using billions of nanobots in the capillaries. We can then back up the information. Using nanotechnology-based manufacturing, we could recreate your brain, or better yet reinstantiate it in a more capable computing substrate.

Our biological brains use chemical signaling, which transmit information at only a few hundred feet per second. Electronics is already millions of times faster than this. In the book, I show how one cubic inch of nanotube circuitry would be about one hundred million times more powerful than the human brain. So we’ll have more powerful means of instantiating our intelligence than the extremely slow speeds of our interneuronal connections.

I see this starting with nanobots in our bodies and brains. The nanobots will keep us healthy, provide full-immersion virtual reality from within the nervous system, provide direct brain-to-brain communication over the Internet, and otherwise greatly expand human intelligence. But keep in mind that nonbiological intelligence is doubling in capability each year, whereas our biological intelligence is essentially fixed in capacity. As we get to the 2030s, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate singularity.com.

Kurzweil is really putting it out there for anyone to see what they have in planning for us. He is the perfect front person; he is enthusiastic and naturally positive about the agenda.

When I am writing this, it is 2016, so we don’t have much time to reject the AIF’s plan for humankind, and likewise we don’t have much time left to be human if we don’t act. Just as the smartphones were sneaking up on us, and most people have probably not even thought about how that could happen so quickly. The transformation from Human 1.0 to Human 2.0 will happen just as seamlessly. We won’t know that we’re there until we’re suddenly there. Today, many people might think that we are still only in the beginning of this entire AI process when indeed we will be almost at the end of it.

We have seen in the media how soldiers who come back from war with only one arm or one leg can get these replaced with sophisticated machine arms and machine legs, and after some practice, the soldier will be able to work the new body part nearly as well as the original body part; nerve sensitivity included. When they mentioned this in the news media, people were stunned over this amazing technology. The Administrators’ controlled scientists must have laughed behind the scenes, knowing that this was Stone Age technology compared to what they already had. Still an important question remains; how is the transformation from biological humans to cyborg going to happen? Are we going to be forced to have surgeries to remove and replace vital organs, such as heart, liver, and kidneys?

No, it’s much more sophisticated than that. This is how it’s going to be done:

Questioner: So we’re going to essentially reprogram our DNA.

Ray Kurzweil: That’s a good way to put it, but that’s only one broad approach. Another important line of attack is to regrow our own cells, tissues, and even whole organs, and introduce them into our bodies without surgery. One major benefit of this “therapeutic cloning” technique is that we will be able to create these new tissues and organs from versions of our cells that have also been made younger—the emerging field of rejuvenation medicine. For example, we will be able to create new heart cells from your skin cells and introduce them into your system through the bloodstream. Over time, your heart cells get replaced with these new cells, and the result is a rejuvenated “young” heart with your own DNA singularity.com.

Again, the nanobots are the center of this process. We are virtually going to have our organs replaced without surgery and without any particular noticing on our part. I mentioned earlier that the great majority of humankind already has nanobots implanted in their brains and their bloodstreams via chemtrails, medicines, and vaccines. These bots might be dormant for now, but just as the antennas that they are, they will be activated remotely, and the process will begin. Then, perhaps, the big news will come out, telling us that we are now all immortal and our cells are self-replicating in a manner to keep us alive and healthy. They will expose this fact with pompous and glamor and with a sense of exhilaration, as if it were one of the greatest gifts ever given to humankind. Maybe that day will be a day of annual celebration worldwide; the annual Immortality Celebration Day.

I do believe that population reduction is part of the agenda, but if we look at the world population now and compare it with two years ago, we will see that it has increased. 2016 we have a world population of 7.4 billion people and in 2014 we were at 7.2 billion people population clock. This means that the supposed goal to decrease the population to 500 million people does not seem to work.

If a world population of 500 million is still the goal, why are they not working more effectively on it? Not until recently did I realize how close we are to achieving the Singularity, and by then (one would think) the Administrators would like to have accomplished their 500 million goal. Now we should know that the population reduction down to 500 million people is mainly using the Georgia Guidestones as a reference, on which this number was written. BBC Travel, Sep. 3, 2015: One of US’ Greatest Mysteries. After all, this can be deliberate disinformation to create more fear amongst us.

Another option is that they actually want to keep the population about the current level, a goal which seems more obtainable, but even with AI coming into the picture, 7 billion people seems like too much to control (or perhaps not). Many die in wars and from disease around the world, but that’s the way it’s always been, and no wars have been able to hold population growth back. Fewer people die from diseases now than they did 150 years ago, and people live longer, so how do these facts fit into the equation of population reduction?

Moreover, the biggest reason for population growth in our world today is the mass reproduction of children in the Third World. People in these areas are often uneducated and not used to be organized enough to look at the consequences of having, let’s say, seven to ten children. These people already live in poverty and certainly can’t afford that many children, and society is not set up to take care of them either. It’s in these parts of the world where population growth is the largest, and thus far, it’s quite uncontrolled. The few pleasures the natives have is sex, which also relieves stress and makes people relax, unless you are a woman, always afraid to become pregnant. Researchers are alarmed because they can see that the population will grow exponentially, which means we will be 9 billion people on the planet in just a few years. If this happens, we can’t maintain the current societal structure, they say.

I have a hard time seeing that the population will increase much more than it already has, and we will soon begin to see a trend downward. There is, for example, a significant contributing factor that may reduce the population rapidly, and that is covert sterilization; again, mainly through nanobots. We know that people already have a hard time producing children in general, and perhaps more nanobots will be activated in the near future so that, eventually, a huge percentage of the population won’t be able to reproduce—particularly in the Third World. If this is the plan, it should very soon be put into effect. After all, their purpose is to keep the souls they trap in the SBC network and don’t let them leave their new “enhanced” bodies—ever! It’s easier to work with souls that don’t vacate and/or recycle. The “Afterlife Trap” will then be obsolete. Also, no more souls will be able to access this 3-D reality.

Vaccination is another major population reduction factor to consider. The Controllers introduce a virus on the “market” and tell people how extremely dangerous and contagious it is. Don’t have sex! Don’t touch each other! Don’t travel! This creates more fear, but of course, after the media have created a fearful population, the same instigators come up with the solution—an antidote, a vaccine! People will run for it, and the consequence of taking the vaccine against a more or less harmless virus, blown out of proportion by the media, is highly increased cancer risks and infertility in the majority of their children.

Only the Overlords know what size the population will be by the time they choose to replace our organs and our immune system. Involuntary sterilization seems to be a major part of the agenda and would probably be the less “invasive;” no violence is needed, and people would not be able to connect the dots, perhaps blaming it on the environment (which wouldn’t be completely incorrect, either, as the environment is programmed to contain new manmade viruses and poisons of different kinds).
