Born in naked singularity, Naked come and naked go we by, Gravely lost in clouded clarity. Could there be an end beginning nigh? Time shall tell while its ways elude us. Dark the warp of soul that might arise. Bent event horizons delude us Leading nowhere where a somewhere dies. Ere singularity can zoom us Past the bar of sole futurity, Intelligence may coyly doom us To entomb our last humanity. When black holes mortal made mistaken Steal the chance a cheeky fate to jar, Then earthly promised lands forsaken How will dreamers wish upon a star? Life is precious in its rarity, Yet the naked eye sees wrong as right. Artificial singularity Is a naked truth that’s now in sight. Ofttimes softly sounds a muted voice, Though its murmurs seem too faint to hear, Whispering, ‘There still may be a choice. Who says singularity is near?’ ~ Harley White < August 2010 >

Noted. If I had a talent, I would write a novel about the confrontation between two superraces - scientists and philosophers. It would be a bestseller)

Beautiful solecism, Harley. As for a choice, I'm afraid, it's a choice between a fish and a chicken that the heavenly stewardesses propose to us. At least, they are not naked and real. Or they pretend to be real)

Continued from previous: In Kurzweil’s book, “The Singularity is Near,” he makes a prediction about the accelerating increase of artificial intelligence...
