4 Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity

Ray Kurzweil Monologue

As mentioned earlier, Raymond Kurzweil coined the term the Singularity—a metaphor he said he had borrowed from physics. He further says that, “physics dictates that in the gravity of a black hole, which also increases exponentially as it is approached, there is a threshold distance away from the center, the Event Horizon, past which nothing can return." [Source]

In this chapter, we are going to delve into the Singularity concept, and we are mostly going to use sources that come from either its spokesperson, Dr. Kurzweil, or the mainstream media. It is very sobering information, and Kurzweil is convincing in the sense that he gives the impression that he believes his vision is in humankind’s best interest. If it were only the vision of one person, I would never have had a reason to write this book, but he shares his vision with the Administrators and, ultimately, the Alien Invader Force. In addition, mainstream media is all over it, and anybody, who is willing to do so, can see his vision unfolding all around us. It is up for debate how much Kurzweil knows about the ET connection. It may very well be that he is speaking the truth the way he sees it, when he says, that AI is “not an alien invasion from Mars with machines coming to invade us …” [Source] As a propagandist for the movement, he doesn’t need to know the whole picture, and it’s desirable for the Controllers that he doesn’t. Anybody who is not in the need to know is going to be filled in about the ET situation.

Kurzweil, who is also the co-founder and the Chancellor of the Singularity University and Director of Engineering at Google, said the following in a video monologue some years ago (my emphasis where indicated):

By 2020 we will have technology, that will simulate the human brain, but we still have to find out the methods. Many measures of IT double in every 11 months or so—it goes fast. These technologies will be a million times more powerful in 20 years from now. And the speed of exponential growth is itself speeding up so in 25 years the technologies will be a billion times more powerful.

We have already seen the incredible speed since the 1960s. Cellphones today are a million times cheaper and a thousand times more powerful. That's a billion-fold increase.

In 2029 [and he's been quite consistent with this, he says (my parenthesis)] we will have completed the reverse engineering of the human brain. We have already reverse engineered several regions of the brain. By 2029 we will have the "software" that can simulate the human brain. Computers at that time will be far more capable than the human brain. Then we can make machines that can be like humans. Machines are already superior to us.

It's not an alien invasion from Mars with machines coming to invade us; it's coming from within our civilization, and the whole point is to extend our reach [out in the universe]. SINGULARITY is not just that point when we achieve (combine) human intelligence and machine. Machines will be able to improve their own software design. 2045 we will have expanded the human intelligence with machines a billion fold. THAT will be SINGULARITY. [Op. cit. This is also on YouTube]

It definitely does not sound, as if he or the Controllers will go back on this for anything, regardless of public opinion. Speaking of public opinion, Kurzweil often, in his speeches, can’t emphasize enough how important it is that they get input from the public in order to get a “balanced debate,” as he usually puts it. We can hang our hats on the idea that he and his cohorts are thoroughly monitoring the Internet for public opinions on the Singularity.

To contribute to the “balanced debate” and to sound credible, Kurzweil also mentions the downsides and dangers of AI. For example, in his book, The Singularity is Near, he writes about the downsides and dangers of genetics nanotechnology robotics (GNR), and I paraphrase:

5) Abuse of biotechnology in the military can potentially be an issue. The same technology that will empower us, e.g. by curing cancer and heart disease, can also become a potential danger to us if this technology gets into the wrong hands.

6) A terrorist can program a biological virus to be more deadly. The good news is that we have the scientific tools to defend ourselves. The biological terrorist is what scares him the most, but he adds that we are building defenses against it, but we are not there yet. Moreover, it’s not accurate to say he has a utopian vision only—he emphasizes that he is looking at both sides of the coin.

He admits that there are dangers with new technology, but he keeps repeating, that he’s optimistic, and that we will be more helped than hurt. “…but I’m an optimist, not a pessimist” has become something of a propaganda phrase amongst AI Prophets. [Raymond Kurzweil, The Singularity is Near, Chapter 8]. As we shall see in a later chapter, physicist Michio Kaku, also an AI Prophet, uses the same kind of expression.

It’s ironic that he mentions how these new technologies may fall into the wrong hands when they were in the wrong hands to begin with. He may seem very naïve, but he is just playing his part in the game. He is, nevertheless, a puppet with limited knowledge and with a scientific mind.

The Singularity is all about achieving the immortality of the gods—a today’s Tower of Babel. It seems obvious that Kurzweil fears death, and he admits to that in a video. Regardless of how much Kurzweil knows, the emphasis on fear of dying triggers the same anxiety in the people he’s communicating with. This fits perfectly into the real agenda, which is to get people hooked on the idea of becoming immortal; an idea based on fear.

Discussions Around the Book The Singularity is Near

Ray Kurzweil’s book hit the shelves back in 2005. This is eleven years ago as of this writing. Eleven years may seem as a long time ago, but one of the purposes with the book is to show that he can predict the future and therefore seem credible. Those interested in the AI movement are in awe over how eerily correct these “predictions” have been so far, but they fail to take into consideration that Kurzweil knows his stuff; the technology is already developed, so it’s just a matter of when certain parts of it will be released. He may or may not have that inside information, but for him, who is carefully monitoring the progress, it’s not very difficult to predict different changes to come.

Video Promotion

In one of several videos, in which he is promoting his book, he makes some stunning revelations I now will bring up, one at the time. Of course, he defines the Singularity for the listener, and he summarizes it by saying that it is “when humans and machines are no longer two separate things.” This short definition should make even the most dedicated-to-the-Singularity-agenda person freeze in his or her chair, but unfortunately, that is usually not the case. While researching this, I’ve noticed that an increasing number of young people are embracing the entire idea of the Singularity, despite the fact that they will become part machines, which is not a secret. The “immortality button” is probably the movement’s most important key.

Also, those who have read The Wes Penre Papers—The Multiverse Series (Wes Penre Papers), may recall that I mentioned how many souls, now part of our younger generation, incarnated here solely to participate in the building of the Machine Kingdom. The “Machine Kingdom” is a term I adopted from the Pleiadians. I like this term because it contains “machine,” as in robot, and “kingdom,” as in the Patriarchal AIF Empire, based on male dominance. Barbara Marciniak’s Pleiadians call them “Machine Riders,” which I think is a suitable name. Therefore, many parents will have children who seem to be geniuses with electronics. We hear about two-year-old toddlers, capable of only speaking a few words, comfortably navigate a smartphone or a tablet. Ignorant parents might be amazed at their toddler’s skills, and maybe even a little frightened, while the knowledgeable parents might be sad or devastated, understanding that they have one of these Machine Riders in front of them. Being aware where this is heading, the conscious parents might desperately try to distract the children’s attention away from the devices and into something more genuinely creative. However, when the children are by themselves, they will once again have a smartphone in their hand.

My point is that whatever the parents might try, their children will remain attracted to electronics as moths to the light. I am not saying that it is impossible to change these children, but realize that these little toddlers are just adult souls in a small body; they’ve come here for the Singularity! Most people have some kind of mission here on Earth—a goal we set before we were born here—and as little as you and I want our purposes in life tampered with, just as little as do these children want to have theirs tampered with. However, the difference between them and us is that they are extremely determined and seem addicted to electronics almost already from birth, while the rest of us can be distracted, away from our basic goals and purposes. This could be a tough thing to realize for parents. Some of these children’s passion is so strong that very little, if anything, can change their direction, nor are we entitled to. Regardless of whether we like it or not, we have no right to interfere with someone else’s life purpose. If we try to change them with force, their entire reason for being here is stolen from them. Albeit, the children might not be consciously aware of this, they will feel it, and they will protest against it.

The next thing I want to emphasize in the Kurzweil video above is when he says, “…we are the human machine civilization. It's really part of who we are." What he is really saying is that our biological form is imperfect and outdated, and in order to evolve, we need to integrate with the machine. In his mind, the machine era was bound to happen as a part of human evolution. However, because humans in general have become lazy and don’t want to work on their own spiritual development, it’s much easier and quicker to let the scientists do it for them, and the population just goes along for the ride.

Moreover, Kurzweil says in the same video, “You can change your body to fit in a particular environment.” This is particularly interesting for the reason that according to Kurzweil, one of the extended goals for the new humanity is to control (read conquer) space. The AIF will eventually give us cyborg bodies that can travel in space and withstand radiation and the general harsh conditions in space. Although we are discussing nano technology in this book, the Overlords have no intention (at least not in the near future) to let humankind nano-travel (travel by thought). That would be too close to becoming godlike.

“People are mechanical,” Kurzweil says in the video. It seems as if they are not afraid to take any measures in order to program people’s minds. You can distinguish this phrase in the cacophony of voices, talking at once behind the background music at the end of the video, if you pay close attention.

The many voices speaking at once is an old technique to program the subconscious mind. One of the traits of the subconscious mind is to take in data and make it literal. Once a phrase, programmed into our minds on an earlier occasion, is repeated by the media, or by someone else, this subconscious programming surfaces.

The listener will take the message literally and as a matter-of-fact—especially if the statement is repeated often enough, which is the case, with the same “news” running over and over, twenty-four seven, in the media. This is not to inform us, but to program us and to trigger previous programming. If I had listened less carefully, I would have missed the programming in Kurzweil’s video.

The last statement in the video that I want to bring up is very revealing, "Do you think that just because it's in a movie, it can't be real?" Here they are giving us the truth about how they are using Hollywood to promote their agenda. For a long time I have said that all these Hollywood movies about space wars, artificial intelligence, and films on other related subjects, are made in order to prepare us for what is to come. To be blunt, Hollywood is set up for one major purpose—to indoctrinate and program the masses. This is mainly accomplished by programmed producers and actors, who are being told, what kind of movies to make and which actors to choose for the roles. We call the technique to covertly giving things away truth in plain sight. The Overlords believe in informing us about their plans beforehand, so we can’t come afterwards, when the movies become real, and say that we had no idea about their plans. We were forewarned via Hollywood, but we didn’t pay attention. We thought it was all science fiction. I can’t repeat this often enough: they need our direct, or indirect, consent in order to fulfill their plans. This is not because they want an informed public, but to protect themselves against prosecution in the future for interfering with our free will.

Some Quotes

"Ray Kurzweil is the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence. His intriguing new book envisions a future in which information technologies have advanced so far and fast that they enable humanity to transcend its biological limitations-transforming our lives in ways we can't yet imagine." [The Singularity is Near, “Praise for The Singularity is Near” (page unnumbered).] - BILL GATES

"Kurzweil links a projected ascendance of artificial intelligence to the future of the evolutionary process itself. The result is both frightening and enlightening....The Singularity Is Near is a kind of encyclopedic map of what Bill Gates once called 'the road ahead.' "[Ibid.]—The Oregonian

"If the singularity is as likely and as globally, utterly transformative as many here believe, it would be profoundly unethical to make it happen without including all of the stakeholders in the process - and we are all stakeholders in the future."[bibliotecapleyades.net] –Ray Kurzweil

On Ray Kurzweil’s website singularity.com he has an About the Book section, where he wrote the following (my emphasis):

. . the merging is the essence of the Singularity, an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly nonbiological and trillions of times more powerful than it is today—the dawning of a new civilization, that will enable us to transcend our biological limitations and amplify our creativity. In this new world, there will be no clear distinction between human and machine, real reality and virtual reality. We will be able to assume different bodies and take on a range of personae at will. In practical terms, human aging and illness will be reversed; pollution will be stopped; world hunger and poverty will be solved. Nanotechnology will make it possible to create virtually any physical product using inexpensive information processes and will ultimately turn even death into a soluble problem. [About the Book]

Kurzweil claims that the new man (whom, henceforth, I will call Posthuman) will be billions of times more intelligent, than the most brilliant genius, who ever lived. The reason he can make such a claim is that the scientists, working for the Controllers, have already been able to clone the human brain into the smallest details and have figured out how to utilize 100% of the brain in an artificial way. This Super Brain Computer (SBC) will then become the central point and the super-mind of Posthumans, and any and all information contained in the SBC can then be “downloaded” into each individual connected to this “network” through nanobots. We can only imagine what implications this must have. We can also only imagine, how it would be to live as an outcast in this new society. Those who would refuse to take the “Mark of the Beast” still live under the same umbrella as those who are a billion times more intelligent. It’s not a nice world to live in.

In Kurzweil’s utopia, “there will be no distinction between human and machine, real reality and virtual reality.” The Singularitarians, those who are for the Singularity, make comments that Anti-Singularitarians claim that the Singularity is the end of humanity, which is way off the mark. The Singularitarians say, that there will be no cyborgs, only humans with individual access to almost endless information. Those who make these comments really need to research this subject without filtering things ; after all, this has to do with humankind’s immediate future. There are countless references in Kurzweil’s books alone that the merging of man and machine is literal. Regardless of what Kurzweil claims, all we need to do is to look around us. We see human body parts exchanged for machine parts. This will become so much more obvious in the next few years; indeed, we’re almost there, and the Singularity is near.

Also interesting is the last part of Kurzweil’s statement, where he claims that we are living in a virtual reality. Posthumans, with their vastly enhanced intelligence, will understand that they live in a hologram, where the spirit-mind-body complex can create anything that it is capable of imagining. Understand also that most of the technology involved in this is ET technology, of which we have a poor comprehension.

“We will be able to assume different bodies and take on a range of personae at will.” Doesn’t this remind the readers of what I wrote in the Wes Penre PapersI mentioned quite a few times how some of the AIF have bodies in storage and how they can “jump bodies” at will. The enhanced human, who the AI Prophets call Human 2.0, is going to be able to do the same thing; it’s indeed the AIF giving us the Tree of Life, i.e. immortality—but in a contained way. Because Posthumans will be connected with the SBC, they are prevented from “escaping” in the process. Once a Posthuman, always a Posthuman; there is no escape; the soul splinter is trapped, being electronically connected with the notorious SBC.

What people will be able to do, though, is to change bodies, when they change environment, according the Kurzweil. Let’s pretend you are a super soldier here on Earth, being trained for space wars: once you go into space, you jump bodies into one that is more suitable for space travel (such as the Gray alien bodies). You can now endure the harsh conditions in space in a 3-D body because the Grays, who themselves are cyborgs, are constructed in a way they can endure space conditions.

Moreover, in the same quote it says that Human 2.0 will not only be able to assume different bodies, but also will be able to take on a range of personae at will. This means that Posthumans can change personality instantaneously; perhaps, a Posthuman would be able to go from being an average person one second and in the next second, he would become a raging super soldier. The question is, will Posthumans have any real sense of ethics and morals, or will he become so robotized that he no longer knows right from wrong? The almost obvious answer is the latter. If the SBC were to become the center of everything, and the SBC were controlled by the AIF, emotions, morals, and ethics would also be at the mercy of the Overlords.

It doesn’t matter, according to Kurzweil, if you are 80 years old when the Singularity happens; your age can be reversed with new technology and with help from the nanobots we already have in our system. I’m sure Kurzweil wants to speed up this entire process because he is in his sixties at the time I’m writing this, and without having achieved immortality before his body expires, he apparently thinks he is doomed.

In his mind, there is no place for an afterlife. However, if he manages to stay alive for another decade or two, his aging can be reversed, and it’s quite apparent that this is what he’s aiming for. Or maybe, as a favor, they’ll take care of him and give him the reverse aging program earlier than that. After all, he could be one of the guinea pigs for the testing of AI technology, only to eventually go out in public and say, “Hey, look at me! I’m getting younger!” If Kurzweil can prove by example, that he has reversed his own aging process, I’m sure that would excite people.

On top of everything else, he promises that pollution, world starvation, and poverty will be 100% resolved. Consequently, would that justify the continuous pollution and destruction of Planet Earth we see today? Certain people seem to think so.
