I like the idea of the Singularity. But I've been hearing this promise being "just around the corner" for decades, and I'm starting to see a pattern. More of a hope to keep people investing in science & technology.
Thanks for the note about TBerg. I hope that he understands.
I read his book The Singularity is Near when i was 19. I just remember that he is Jewish and because of that thread I thought I'd ask because I like smart people but sometime they can overwhelm people with information. I visit his forum allot at kurzweilai.net
i think you were much clearer in what you last said to TBerg and that will help him understand.
Recently I became aware I was misunderstanding the Bible for exactly those reasons. I have many Christian friends who have shown me how I was brought up wrong. I now know what my errors were and have turned around because smart people know better how to read things in there entirety rather than being reductionist. I now know the spirit not the letter. I feel like a real Christian now rather than a false one as I felt before. Could you tell me more of why most don't see and are mislead, I know it happens in most religions.
I don't seem to have a type either. My functions probably match up to an NTP best, though it's certainly not clear cut. I was just wondering, because you seem to exhibit traits similar to what I understand of Ni, but this has always been a fuzzy area for me.
Yes. I did put it as being from Sherlock for a while. But I decided to go back to Spock, not because Spock said it, but because Spock was on the printout, and my sister gave it to me, because it's who I am. I could put on it "by me". But that would seem way too arrogant. So I leave it as coming from Spock. But I know why it's really there, and that is enough for me.
Neither. Several years ago, my sister gave a printout of the quote from Spock to me as a birthday present. She thought I'd love it, because I was always into Sci-Fi, and because it summed up how other people found I behaved, because as long as I can remember, people would tell me that I was being overly logical. So it's more of a way of saying: "this is who I am."
