Kurzweil - Futurist

About: kurzweilai.net

Archives via the Brain navigation. What got my attention watching Ray Kurzweil on Glenn Beck was his optimism for energy future & his lack of panic about global warming.  In particular, he says that the dire futures predicted do not take into account the explosive advances in technology (in particular solar energy via nanotechnology) which are just around the corner & could be available to solve all energy needs by 2020.  Anyway, an optimist is more fun to read than all you fucking pessimists.

OTOH, I'm not sure I want to become a computer hybrid in order to live forever. Here is an interesting CFR quote:
Yi King Commentaries: ...
(p1806 - Hex#12,6 1967-5-5-29-15-22 Monday) ... the oracle which here is good applies especially to Spiritual Advance & what is above & beyond ordinary call of duty! Past can be falsified by LUCIFER & future can be cheated by enticements of AHRIMAN.  Mission of MICHAEL directs us toward the right position to take, viz. PATH of the CHRIST!
...
The material world certainly has it's purpose & it is not all there is! All the material progress of the singularity still needs to be balanced by strength in morality & other human virtues.
