Things keep happening faster and faster. Is the Singularity coming?
They can now make embryonic stem cells out of adult cells, which has the potential to cure just about anything. Q-bits have been constructed and proven to work, so quantum computing is just around the corner. 3-D printing is set to revolutionize everything in manufacturing. We don't seem to be any more likely to blow up the planet than we were, say, fifty years ago, so I'm cautiously optimistic. We just might last long enough to see what happens next. So, what is it? First thing, in my opinion, is figure out how to get to and live other places besides this one planet.

There is a lot more going on than can be seen with out given senses. What happens next is there is a convergance with another dimension that is very close but we can't see it or the things that inhabit it. Hollywood and T.V. has tried to give us a clue. There is a much higher science that only the ancients and James C. Maxwell understood.

I too remain optimistic. If the world can overcome the current struggles we will see a huge change within our lifetime. Hopefully for the greater good.

I give you 5 stars to make up for those 1 star assholes.

You are spot on - we are in a time where novelty is pouring out everywhere. 5* and pin.

We are living in the future. Bummer about the flying cars, though.

In a sense. Advancement is already too fast for the human mind to keep up with, true. But we still live our lives fundamentally the same: Grow, learn, find a way to earn food and social standing, find a mate, raise offspring, grow old, pass on knowledge, die. When something changes all that, that's when I'll think the Singularity has come.
