Singularity Update: November 25, 2008
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast … And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
If you are not aware of Singularity, please first read my teaching about this subject, otherwise you will miss what the updates are about. The teaching is Singularity and The Image of the Beast.
The research merging the brain with technology is exploding nonstop. It is amazing to follow how all the functions of the brain are being identified and then merged with computers. This is all happening so fast. Singularity will soon be here. Also the field of robotics is really coming into focus and it is not going to be long until a life like human robot is fitted with a human type computer brain. I’ll keep you posted with great articles showing this.

Supercomputers Break Petaflop Barrier, Transforming Science 11/18/08 This article is not directly about Singularity but it shows just how far and fast man is increasing in knowledge. This knowledge will spill over into Singularity and accelerate its development.
“A new crop of supercomputers is breaking down the petaflop speed barrier, pushing high-performance computing into a new realm that could change science more profoundly than at any time since Galileo, leading researchers say.”
British doctors help perform world’s first transplant of a whole organ grown in lab 11/19/08 This article is not tied directly to Singularity but once again shows just how far and fast man’s knowledge has gone. This same rapid increase is happening with Singularity.
“British doctors have helped to perform the world’s first transplant of a whole organ grown from stem cells, signalling a significant medical breakthrough.”
The robot that can pull faces just like a human being 11/12/08
“Scientists have created the first ‘humanoid’ robot that can mimic the facial expressions and lip movements of a human being. ‘Jules’ – a disembodied androgynous robotic head – can automatically copy the movements, which are picked up by a video camera and mapped on to the tiny electronic motors in his skin.”
Harnessing The Power Of The Brain 11/02/08 This is Singularity developing right before your eyes.
“Quietly in a number of laboratories, an astounding technology is developing that directly connects the human brain to a computer. It’s like a sudden leap in human evolution – a leap that could one day help paralyzed people to walk again and amputees to move bionic limbs.”
