Our world is entering a new paradigm, the paradigm of decentralization. Decentralization will lead us into the age of Artificial Intelligence and Conscious Systems, emergent technologies that will create a technological Singularity- that moment when humankind realizes it’s true potential as a cosmic consciousness connected to all life in the Multiverse. Homo sapiens will ascend to the next level of human evolution, Homo transcendus.
Science fiction writer Vernor Vinge popularized the idea of the Singularity in his 1993 essay “Technological Singularity”, describing it as
“a point where our old models must be discarded and a new reality rules. As we move closer to this point, it will loom vaster and vaster over human affairs till the notion becomes a commonplace. Yet when it finally happens it may still be a great surprise and a greater unknown.”
