While discussing consciousness, Kurzweil makes the following comment in his book:
… We will then be cyborgs, and from that foothold in our brains, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will expand its powers exponentially. [p. 274, op. cit.]
For him, intelligence is consciousness; they are one, and we are as conscious as we are intelligent. However, the intention is to merge all religions with science and acknowledge a God consciousness that’s the same for every religion—even if God is science. Humanity’s task is then to become as God. As we’ve concluded, he wants us to spread our superior intelligence into the entire Universe, after the Singularity, and fill the Universe with our “brilliance.” However, Posthumans’ journey doesn’t end there. Now, ponder this:
…while being a Singularitarian is not a matter of faith but one of understanding, pondering the scientific trends I've discussed in this book inescapably engenders new perspectives on the issues that traditional religions have attempted to address: the nature of mortality and immortality, the purpose of our lives, and intelligence in the universe. [p. 270, op. cit.]
Because Kurzweil argues that we most likely are the only intelligent species in the Universe, we are of course the ones who are entitled to the entire cosmos. This is “God’s Plan” for humanity. Hence, he believes that we are the species that more than likely will seed the Universe with our intelligence. He bases this conclusion on that if there were others out there, they would already be here, and if there were one more species, there would probably be more than one; perhaps billions. This, according to Kurzweil, is highly unlikely because if this were the case, we would certainly have been visited. Even if some of them would prefer to be in an “observation mode,” at least some of these species would have come forward. Again, he does not take into consideration that Earth and this solar system is under quarantine, and that the star races that are here are mostly of the controlling kind, doing their dirty business in the background.
However, Kurzweil does speculate that there could be others out there, who are much more advanced than we are, but if this were the case, they would already have developed artificial intelligence. Thus, if we stumble upon another advanced civilization out in space, they would be AI, not biological creatures. He argues,
Incidentally, I have always considered the science-fiction notion of large spaceships piloted by huge, squishy creatures similar to us to be very unlikely. Seth Shostak comments that "the reasonable probability is that any extraterrestrial intelligence we will detect will be machine intelligence, not biological intelligence like us."
…any civilization sophisticated enough to make the trip here would have long since passed the point of merging with its technology and would not need to send physically bulky organisms and equipment. [p. 261, op. cit.]
As a matter of fact, I partly agree with him. Here he brings up an issue that I also brought up in the Wes Penre Papers. ETs normally don’t travel in spaceships, transporting their physical bodies and heavy equipment between star systems. Instead they travel by thought. However, Kurzweil, via Shostak, is probably correct; the alien civilizations that Posthumans might stumble upon will be AI because they would be part of the Luciferian Empire. Therefore, it is logical to assume that all these civilizations, if they are spacefaring, will be AI. There is no other way for them to travel across the 4% Universe than with cyborg bodies.
It’s important, however, not to discard Kurzweil’s predictions as science fiction; if he, and the AIF, can work on this project relatively undistracted, it will happen just the way Kurzweil predicts. As I mentioned in the Wes Penre Papers, it seems as if not all of the different races that joined Lucifer (Lord En.ki) in his rebellion could nano-travel. Some of them might still not be able to. These races use advanced technology to travel between stars. An example of this would be those who are the original inhabitants of the planet Nibiru. In that sense, Sitchin was correct. Although, at the time En.ki and some of his people started rubbing shoulders with those from Nibiru, it became a blend betwixt technological space travel and nano-travel amongst the Rebels; the latter is something that En.ki can accomplish effortlessly. AI has long since been integrated in the Luciferian Empire and is already well established in some asterisms that the AIF is in control of. Despite what Kurzweil might think (or want us to think), we are not alone—not even close!
Then, Kurzweil makes the following stunning statement: “It appears that our solar system has not yet been turned into someone else's computer.” [Ibid. op. cit.] He comes to this conclusion based on the “fact” that we have not been visited by any other civilization out there yet. It’s obvious that there are things the AIF still want to hide from us—their own presence, to begin with, at least until they might decide to show up. They know that the speculations are out there regarding the solar system, as we know it, being a hologram within holograms. However, the solar system we learn about from NASA and other dubious organizations is little more than a hologram that is to some degree holographically superimposed on us humans and is not the way the real Universe is. Moreover; what we see when we look through telescopes and observe from space shuttles, etc., is the interpretation of the solar system and the Universe from our five senses perspective. If we were to access other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum at the same time, the Universe would look very different.
In other words, Kurzweil is incorrect when he suggests that our solar system has not been turned into someone else’s computer. Much more about these topics can be studied at wespenre.com — all Levels of Learning.
Following Kurzweil’s line of logic, we will have the human brain entirely cloned and ready to go by the late 2020s, [SIN, p. 274.] and we will be able to merge with it by 2045. These are his predictions and not set in stone, but as others have mentioned, Kurzweil has been correct thus far in his predictions. Now, if we expand on this, with the understanding that conquering the entire Universe is the ultimate goal of the Singularity, what can we expect will happen during the twenty-first century?
Of course, Kurzweil has the answer:
Having reached a tipping point, we will within this century be ready to infuse our solar system with our intelligence through self-replicating nonbiological intelligence. It will then spread out to the rest of the universe. [p. 271, op. cit.]
Perhaps, by now, the reader can see the importance of creating our own, local universes, unless we want to be part of Kurzweil’s singular future. If we don’t want to participate in the Singularity, we’d better create what we want rather than resisting what we don’t want (AI and the Singularity).
Everybody who is reading this is still here in 3-D reality, and so long as we are here, we’d better make the best out of it. Many readers, who are still young or middle-aged, might be alive when the Singularity happens, and therefore, it is important to create your own local universe, which is the universe you have access to at the moment, such as your hometown and other places you might travel to. You might want to embrace this local universe and create your future in it by using your thoughts, imagination, and intention. Then, you build your local universe around this spiritual sequence.
This does not just apply to young and middle-aged people; we all need to do this in order not to be sucked into Kurzweil’s horrific future.
