Singularity Prophecy at Risk

Singularity Prophecy at Risk

Singularity is defined as the moment when technological change becomes so rapid and profound, it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history. Raymond Kurtzell, often named the Singularity visionary thinks the time will come when some humans have their brains scanned and placed in robots. Alas, it seems someone is already missing.

Kurtzell was taken aback recently when he learned that Leland Petropolus White signed off with a nameless laboratory, left his body to science and took the scan. This seemed to work until last week, when the program logistics left “him” doubtful, but he could not find the doubt. This truth sent “him” robot to frenzy of grind and frozen moments. His former wife called the lab. More scans, virus protection, fragmentation and the results self indulgent, a phrase uncommon to robots. It seems that Mr. White, or rather the “him’ that was not, had “forgotten to remember to forget.”

Raymond Kurzwell will be interviewed on 60 Minutes regarding this issue. Mr. White’s presnt self is frozen in limbo awaiting suggestions.
