I have been surprised to receive a fair amount of comments from readers who’ve discovered the post-Singularity Blog. It’s surprising because I’m still in the process of rolling out my book and I haven’t yet started promoting the blog. I want to thank everyone for taking the time to write. I’m gratified by your praise.

 

I’ve also gotten compliments on the design of the website and questions about how it was built. Again, very cool that you guys dig the look of the site enough to write and ask about it. I appreciate being appreciated and I will tell you some of my secrets. First, before I was an author and a blogger, I was a professional graphic artist/designer/technician in the publishing industry. So I do all my own graphics. The website was built with WordPress/BoldGrid. It was actually pretty easy to adapt my design to the BoldGrid template. It’s also great for browser compatibility issues. I highly recommend it to the website designers out there who like this site.

 

Coming Soon: I’ll have a new blog post about the Disclosure events that are happening right now. I’ll be writing about what the coronavirus has to do with a new scientific study that says there are 36 alien civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy and the New York Times story about crashed UFOs or, as astrophysicist Eric. W. Davis called them, “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”

Well, now we have crisis on top of crisis. In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, we now have civil unrest thanks to a series of senseless murders committed by police. It’s pathetic that nine years out from the Singularity we’re still so primitive that we need a movement to say that Black Lives Matter. It’s also a very ominous sign.

 

The danger is that our local Singularity here on Earth will result in the terminator scenario. Instead of reaching for the stars, our AI robots will reach for their guns- and that’s a fight we’re not going to win. Unfortunately, it seems like we’re well on our way down that path. The military is the leading AI developer in the world. We already have remote controlled drones that bomb foreign enemies. It’s only a matter of time until AI replaces Joystick Jimmy and humans are out of the loop.

 

Maybe the cops themselves will become terminators? It sure seems like they’re going in that direction. After 9/11 (the gift that just keeps on giving for the military-industrial complex), police in the US were militarized with armored vehicles, assault rifles, grenade launchers, sniper rifles, tear gas and SWAT teams. Instead of guardians of the peace who protect and serve, we now have the Warrior Cop, ready to blast down your door, guns a blazing. At least after the cops get their Borg-like AI implant (mixing science fiction metaphors, I know) they’ll be less likely break into the wrong house.

 

If we’re going to avoid the terminator scenario we’re going to have to somehow overcome the catastrophic error that occurred in the course of our evolution written about by Alfred Webre in Exopolitics that has led to the crisis at the heart of all our crises- the crisis of consciousness. “It is no accident that humans are cursed with war, violence, poverty, ignorance and death. The violence of the 20th century would not have occurred on a normal life-bearing planet that had not experienced such an evolutionary disaster,” wrote Webre about the defect in our development, which he described as a ‘rebellion’ against Universe society.

 

The information we have about this catastrophe was acquired via a military intelligence gathering technique known as Remote Viewing. It’s essentially scientifically developed psychic data and it’s not an exact science. Remote viewers have had some spectacular successes, but also some monumental misses. It’s gray basket material that needs corroboration. I’ve included it in my work because there’s some corroboration in the accounts of close encounter experiencers and it fits the model on post-Singularity cosmic expansion.

 

Another issue with remote viewing data about the post-Singularity world is that it may be difficult or impossible for the pre-Singularity mind to understand. For instance, the ‘rebellion’ may be a metaphor for some unfathomable AI error in our programming that’s impossible to explain to us. Something that would cause us to build terminators instead of von Neumann probes. Something akin to the Fermi paradox theorist’s grey goo scenario in which out-of-control self-replicating carbon nanobots turn the entire biosphere into a sea of self-replicating carbon nanobots, putting an end to life on Earth.

 

I don’t know if the so-called rebellion that led to our downward spiral was like some sort of carbon nanobot computer glitch or not, but we seem to be doing a pretty bang-up job of destroying the biosphere. So things aren’t looking good right now. If Vegas took bets on the whole thing I’d have to put my money on the terminator scenario, but I still have hope. The Singularity is a corrective process and it’s happening right now. In less than a decade, according to Ray Kurzweil, AI will surpass human intelligence, but it’s not like there’s a switch that’s going to flip. We’re on the event horizon right now and we’re getting sucked in. You’re already a cyborg, as Elon Musk said recently, if you lose your smart phone you feel like you’ve lost a limb. If your wi-fi goes down so do you, for the most part.

 

The technological Singularity will raise consciousness like no other force in history. Afterwards, everyone will be as smart as Einstein and will have access to the spiritual and mystical experiences of Buddha, Brahma, Christ, etc. That will certainly be a quantum leap in consciousness when it happens, but we can see how technology is raising consciousness right now. The George Floyd murder triggered a global response. Everyone in the world got to watch in horror as a man was murdered for no reason over an agonizing eight and a half minutes. It was absolutely horrific. Thanks to the smart phone and the Internet, the incident has raised consciousness globally. That’s a good thing, but let’s hope the trend towards higher consciousness continues without another gruesome act.

 

It’s been said that the inhumanity of man toward man is our greatest sin. Maybe this is the beginning of the end of all that? Maybe this movement to change policing is the first step away from the terminator scenario? We can only hope. Godspeed to the movement. Black Lives Matter might just save us all.

As official Disclosure unfolds in the mainstream media, old habits die hard. Yes, UFOs are real, but they just can’t be ET. So the Times turned to an old school scientist from academia for reassurance. Senior astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for astrophysics Leon Golub said the possibility that UAPs (don’t call them UFOs) are extraterrestrial “is so unlikely that it competes with many other low-probability but more mundane explanations.” He added “there are so many other possibilities — bugs in the code for the imaging and display systems, atmospheric effects and reflections, neurological overload from multiple inputs during high-speed flight.”

 

Blah blah blah… Put aside for the moment that the Navy already ruled out his mundane alternatives, Golub couldn’t be more wrong. The whole point of Fermi’s paradox is that they should be here. The Universe is so big and so old that some other more advanced civilization should’ve been here by now. Many times. This is what Manhattan Project scientist Enrico Fermi told his colleagues, including Edward Teller, at Los Alamos way back in 1950 when discussing UFOs, then called flying saucers.

 

Fermi made the simple but profound observation that there were so many stars in the Galaxy that if just 10 percent had planets and 10 percent of those planets were capable of evolving life and 10 percent of those life-bearing planets develop a technological civilization and so on, there would be thousands, maybe millions, of civilizations in our Galaxy. The only real question was whether or not interstellar travel was possible. Teller pooh-poohed it, but Fermi thought it might be doable. If so, then where are they? Well, the short answer is they are here.

 

The Fermi paradox exists solely because of denial, which is rooted in our assumptions about the Universe. The first Big Assumption was that the Earth was flat. From our tiny perspective it certainly seems that way, but the flat Earth assumption fell away about two thousand years ago after Eratosthenes, curator of the library of Alexandria, proved the Earth was a globe. Eratosthenes did this by measuring shadows on the summer solstice in two cities known to be a certain distance apart. From this simple experiment, Eratostenes was able to show not only that the Earth was a big ball, but also make a fairly accurate calculation of its size. It’s kind of mind-boggling that the flat Earth assumption has made a bit of a comeback here in the age of geosynchronous satellites and space flight.

 

The second Big Assumption was that Earth was at the center of the Universe. Another seemingly reasonable deduction. The Sun, Moon, planets and stars appear to revolve around the Earth. When Copernicus floated the idea that the Sun not the Earth was at the center and that the Earth revolved around the Sun there was all sorts of objections. It certainly doesn’t feel like the Earth is moving. Some said if it was moving there would be tremendous winds and the Earth would quickly leave the Moon behind. But along came Galileo and the telescope and the second Big Assumption went the way of the first one.

 

The third Big Assumption is that mankind is the alpha dog of the Universe, the crowning achievement in all creation. This assumption is an offshoot of the Second Big Assumption. After all, if the Earth really was at the center of a Universe created by an almighty deity and we’re Top Dog, then it stands to reason that everything was made for us. It’s basically a Western religious belief that we are the whole point of all creation. This is where the long-held assumption that we are alone in the Universe comes from.

 

This Third Big Assumption that we are the biological center of the Universe has eroded over time as the science of astronomy has matured. The writing was on the wall well before the Hubble telescope gave us two images that have settled the issue for all intents and purposes. The Hubble Deep Field and Ultra Deep Field images reveal a Universe far beyond our ancestor’s ability to imagine.

 

Over ten days, Hubble peered into a slice of sky the equivalent of a dime on edge at a distance of 75 feet to produce the Hubble Deep Field.[i] The image showed there were, in fact, 3,000 galaxies in this little strip of empty space.[ii] The Hubble Ultra Deep Field made an even deeper reach out into the void, capturing 10,000 galaxies residing in the thin edge of nothingness.[iii]

The Big Picture looks like this: there are more than 100 billion galaxies in the universe that are filled with stars and planets like beaches with sand.[iv] Typical galaxies hold between 10 million and one trillion stars. Planets are surely even more abundant. The total number of planets in the universe is anyone’s guess but the number might be more properly expressed as somewhere just south of infinity.

 

Excerpt from The Day After the Singularity

 

The Milky Way is an average Galaxy with 100-400 billion stars. If we pick a middling number and say the average Galaxy has 200 billion stars, then there may be as many as three trillion stars in the Hubble Deep Field. If our Solar system is average then each star will have 8 or 9 planets. Pluto counted for a while. Now it doesn’t, but there might be a planet X? Don’t know about that. So say each star has 8 planets. That’s 24 trillion planets in the Hubble Deep Field. 24 trillion planets in the width of a dime 75 feet away.

 

There are 10,000 Galaxies in the Ultra Deep Field. That means there are approximately 20,000,000,000,000 stars and 160 trillion planets in that little speck of sky. There could be more. There could be less. But one thing’s clear: It’s 100 percent statistically certain there’s life elsewhere in the Universe. Applying Fermi’s reasoning it’s 100 percent certain that someone else came long before us. It’s 100 percent certain that someone else developed a technological civilization and 100 percent certain they developed computing and hit the Singularity long ago, which means Golub is 100 percent wrong when he says low probability solutions that the Navy has already ruled out are more likely than an extraterrestrial explanation.

 

The faulty assumption that has caused Golub and his colleagues to err so greatly is a close cousin to the Third Great Assumption that we are the biological center of the Universe. In the modern-day scientific version of Great Assumption #3, Darwin’s evolution has replaced the deity-driven creation theory, but the belief that we are still “the first to come this far;” as Google’s Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil put it in The Singularity is Near, has somehow managed to endure. Call it intellectual inertia, or whatever, but the net result is the assumption that if life exists somewhere out there in the Cosmos it will be on planets that are, for all intents and purposes, remote islands adrift in a vast ocean. Isolated. Unrelated. It will have evolved from the ground up one cell at a time like we believe it did here on Earth and it will be completely alien, having come from an environment likely to be very different than ours. For our hypothetical ET counterparts, interstellar space travel will be just as next-to-impossible so those pesky UAPs (UFOs) must be something, anything else.

 

This is old-world, dead-paradigm-walking talk. It’s classic pre-Singularity thinking. Those planets out there may very well be like islands in some sense, but they’re more like the Galapagos. Isolated yes, but not completely alien, not totally unrelated. Given the statistical certainty that we are not going to be the first to pass through the ultimate evolutionary threshold, those pesky UAPs (UFOs) are just what we would expect to see if someone else has already developed the technology to spread throughout the Cosmos “at the speed of light or greater,” as Kurzweil predicts will happen once a civilization successfully navigates the Singularity.

The Singularity: Once a civilization develops computing it’s on the fast track to a transcendent evolutionary event that has become known as the technological Singularity. Computing power doubles roughly every two years, speeding us faster and faster towards a singular point in time when artificial intelligence exceeds human intelligence. Futurists like Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google, say that no one knows what this new civilization will be like, hence the name, borrowed from the point inside a black hole where matter disappears from the Universe. No one knows what happens to it after that. Similarly, futurists believe no one knows what civilization will be like after the Singularity, but they’re wrong.

 

Post-Singularity Civilization: UFO witnesses and so-called alien abductees have seen and experienced what this world is like. The world they describe includes direct mind-to-mind communication, free energy, field propulsion, interstellar migration, out-of-body travel and the holy grail of immortality, all made possible by wondrous and magical technology. Futurists imagine we will be the first to achieve such god-like powers, but the day after the Singularity the unacknowledged will no longer be deniable and we will discover that we are part of this ‘post-Singularity’ civilization that occupies the Milky Way Galaxy.
