The Coming Singularity
I don't claim to be an expert on AI (Artificial Intelligence), however as an aspiring citizen of Heaven and a fellow human residing on earth. It is important to pause every now and then and observe the invisible paradigm shifts that often take place before open eyes, that are blind to see changes. Like, for example have you ever asked where have all the jobs gone, immigrants right? Or are robots replacing us and why is it that there is so much demand for programming programmers and coding to be implemented, approximately a million jobs will be available by 2020 that will be left vacant. Everything is boiling down to 2020 right google everything that we will be discussing and be overwhelmed! Think long and hard, God has empowered man to accomplish great challenges, in various aspects of life. Often when these important events take place, events that have the ability to drastically affect your life and the lives of your family members we're awake but sleeping. Informed but clueless.
Man has become more and more curious about his environment and capabilities. But where are we heading? In Matthew 24:37-39 in the (KJV) it warns us about the last days and the return of the Savior Jesus Christ. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
It's intriguing to witness this story come to a climax. It seems like we have gotten to the ultimate in human capabilities and yet man continues to build on this prophesy.
Now scientist has created and is still working to perfect, the point of no return. Popularly referred to as the Singularity. Ray Kurzweil, Futurist and Google’s Director of Engineering, has made many predictions since the 1990s. He claims a staggering 86 percent precision rate. At the SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas, he again claimed that the technological singularity will happen sometime in the next 30 years in approximately 2045.
But what is this Singularity you maybe asking? I have never heard the term myself until coming across it a few months ago and yet it has been in the making for decades. The term was first used by a mathematician by the name of John von Neumann. He mentioned the phrase in a statement where he sent shockwaves with his quote when he stated that the spiraling progress of the technological advancement with which would bring changes in the so called normal mode of human life. This would alter the history of the human race beyond which life as we know it could not continue. However it would make a drastic change beyond repair.
This period being referred to as the approaching of some essential Singularity. In Exodus 3:13 were are told of Moses encounter with the Creator in His Awesome Power and Splendor. And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them? Exodus 3:14 God replied and said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
In the Hebrew language the words I AM means "existed" again in Hebrew; ’ehyeh is the first person SINGULAR imperfect form and is usually translated in English Bibles as "I am" or "I will be" (or "I shall be"), for example, at Exodus 3:14. ’ehyeh ’ăšer ’ehyeh literally translates as "I Am Who I Am."
I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35)
I am the Light of the World (John 8:12)
I am the Door (John 10:9)
I am the Good Shepherd (John 10:11,14)
I am the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25)
I am the Way and the Truth and the Life (John 14:6)
I am the Vine (John 15:1,5)
Isn't it coincidental that the term SINGULARITY has a similar meaning to the Hebrew translation of I AM. According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary it has an infinite meaning in Physics as a point at which a function takes an infinite value, especially in space-time when matter is infinitely dense, as at the center of a black hole.
Is the technology that is being created craving our worship? Already artificial intelligence is being regurgitated into just about everything and is being narrowed down to the ultimate supercomputer that is yet to be unleashed.
Have you ever heard about CERN? It is The European Organization for Nuclear Research derived from the acronym for the French Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire. Founded in 1952 with the aim of establishing a world-class fundamental physics research organization in Europe. It boast the largest machine ever created by man, in 2015 when it was turned up to it's fullest capacity, a lot of strange events occurred worldwide, which affected the earth’s magnetosphere. A spiral of unexplained observations took place over Norway. As they continue to smash dark matter at the speed of light, is there a possibility that CERN opens an inter dimensional portal to the abyss?
Revelations 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. It is also ironic considering the drastic resemblance to CERN's logo to the number of man and the fact that the research centre's mascot is represented by the hindu god of destruction Shiva. As written in Revelations 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
In 1989 under the guidance of Timothy John Berners Lee a British computer scientist who studied physics at Oxford University and became a software engineer CERN invented the World Wide Web project, which led to the first webpage in history. On April 30, 1993, CERN announced that the World Wide Web would be free to anyone. How ironic!
One year after CERN’s grand opening, Sergio Bertolucci, former Director for Research and Scientific Computing of the facility, stunned reporters with his headline comments, when he told a British tabloid the super collider could open doors outwardly to another dimension for "a very tiny lapse of time,” mere fractions of a second. However, that may be just enough time “to peer into this open door, either by getting something out of it or sending something into it”.
Is this machine the number of man? In order to make worship effective you have to know who you are worshipping the “Awesomeness” of this God and why He deserves your Glory and adoration.
The term Singularity refers to a period in the history of man and civilization where changes have taken place so much, that its rules and technologies are incomprehensible to the average man, both in previous and this present generations. You can think of it as yes the big irreversible point of no return to normalcy in the history of man, it is coming. As a matter of fact it is already hear just being perfected.
Futurist and most of these big thinkers believe that this period the singularity will start with extremely rapid technological and scientific changes. As we are already seeing in the internet and the way it works. Virtual assistants like Siri and Alexia that are designed to think on our behalf. Huff-Post 03/18 reported that Siri can read private messages even when the IPHONE is turned off. Our so called private data is no longer private. Where is our information being uploaded to? Is there some kind of virtual book of life being written on every individual on the planet who has access to the internet. Devices and public places such as smartphones and the airports are demanding for facial and voice recognition and our finger prints. We are being recorded constantly in the airports subways and highways we are being tracked and our profiles being updated everyday.
Even countries and villages that were internet free are being drawn in the web. Countries that were deemed third world and lacked the technological savvy are being connected has Google has already created a solution to that problem. The www giant has already prepared and deposited internet producing balloons in the stratosphere. The Internet giant started releasing around 2014 30 high-tech balloons in a trial of technology designed to bring the Internet to places where people are not yet connected.
Artificial intelligence is being planted everywhere and super computers are being built to take over. These changes will be so fast, and so profound, that every aspect of our society will be transformed. Gradually without us even realizing what has happened every bit of information about every human life will be store in a computer that wants to act like a God over us, from our bodies and families to our governments and economies will be controlled by a machine, that is more Intelligent than its maker.
It is already here we are often so caught up with the cares of the world to notice. Already they have created Sophia. On my research of Sophia I learnt that the name means Wisdom and is the first human like robot ever created. It can express various types of human emotions and with the aid of Artificial Intelligence is far more intelligent than any human being on earth. Sophia the robot is the first robot to become the citizen of any country it was made a citizen of Saudi Arabia exceeding all human rights beyond any other human female in that country.
An Indiana university got a visit from Sophia earlier on in March 2018 In an event called “Meet the Future,”. Sophia the robot and it's creator David Hanson was greeted by a packed auditorium at DePauw University. Sophia is the world’s first android powered by artificial intelligence, robot Sophia and has been making headlines news around the world.
Hanson in his presentation commented on the capabilities of robots like Sophia's contribution to humanity in the future and the safety concerns of this type of technology when it reaches it full climax.
In a demonstration of Sophia’s ability to answer questions independently, Hanson asked, “Sophia, do you think robots will take over the world?”
“They already have,” it answered.
I AM THAT I AM Isaiah 43:10-11 KJV -
Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no savior.
