Technological Singularity vs Zoological History

Discussion in 'Science and Nature' started by chromosomekid, Aug 5, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    The acceleration in technological development has so far been most successfully conveyed to the general public by Ray Kurzweil - especially in his 2005 book 'The singularity is near.' I have began a blog that presents a novel viewpoint. One that weaves different historical threads into a coherent picture. Please check out my first blog post and then reply to this forum

    Zoological History

    For my first post, I demonstrated that there are many points in history, that fall onto a trajectory with accelerative growth in complexity starting around 550 million years ago with the emergence of a centralized nervous system. The most recent communication revolution on this trajectory is the World Wide Web and the next one is due around 2043 - around the same date that Ray Kurzweil has suggested, an event he has termed, the technological singularity will occur.
