In the first two videos in this series, we have discussed the coming technological singularity, and how this conversion point is like a quantum event, a point in space and time where all of this conjunction of technology allows for only one way forward, and that is the development of a radically new kind of technology, Artificial Intelligence.
The convergent power of the technological Singularity can now be felt in all modern societies in this world, and its eventual culmination will be upon us faster than many of us might imagine.
In the last video we discussed the rapid doubling of knowledge, as one very powerful indicator of this singularity convergence. Indeed, the implications of this doubling of knowledge over time are nothing less than mind-boggling.
There is a great deal of discussion at this time about the singularity. The singularity, in a basic way is a coming together of a number of variables, and the coming together of these variables creates such an assembly of mass and structure, that a new state is achieved, a quantum jump is forced to occur. Often times this new state is described as a point of infinite or near infinite value, because in many ways, this new point, this singularity achieved, is sort of like a new door that opens up to a new dimension of possible action.
I have discussed in past videos and posts, the idea of the cube. In those posts, I have avoided a finely detailed description of what these cubes are, or what they might represent.
The reason for this is that, as it is the case with all things within the rational perspective, trying to describe this phenomenon can be more unhelpful than helpful. What I mean by this, is that by giving this phenomena certain characteristics and boundaries, in order to try and describe it, I end up creating and propping up characteristics that, depending on the perceivers viewpoint and understanding, may not be entirely accurate. Indeed, these attempts at description through categorisation, and compartmentalisation can end up being destructive, because they force a definition that may not be the most accurate possible, due to slight individual perceptive variations.
We are all energy.
All that we see about us is energy.
We are not the hard unyielding things that we perceive ourselves to be. Ancient mysticism has known this for a very long time, and science has been able to confirm the fundamental energetic essence of things, for many many decades.
Lucid dreaming is a fantastic adventure that anyone can learn to do, if, they are willing to dedicate some time and effort to develop this skill.
After reading my one book, Overcoming the Archon Through Alchemy, there are some readers that ask my thoughts, on what I sometimes refer to as, the Big question.
That big question is in the background of all our minds, whether we consciously realize this or not, and this question has many different facets, because like all big ideas, its complexity straddles many different perspectives, possibilities, and potential future problems.
If we look around this world, especially now that we have so much access to information, things can seem very chaotic and downright crazy at times. Whatever you might think about the state of the world at this moment in time, one can make the case that everything changes, and that those changes seem to be happening at a faster and faster pace.
From an Alchemical perspective, these changes are the result of an energetic flux, that has both internal (subjective) and external (from the world at large) origins. Further, it can be argued that the major thrust of this flux is quite negative to humanity, and that the origins of this negative aspect of the flux of life, is the result of a titanic force that does not have humanity’s best interest in mind.
This article was written in reply to a question that was asked in the article, How to Create a Servitor to do your Bidding‘. The question and answers are as follows:
I have a question about creating thought forms and servitors. I’m a professional actor and often have to play many different types characters. I recently had to play a character in an intense Shakespeare play and found myself very affected by the energy of the play and the character. In acting we are taught to “become” this character and act truthfully under imaginary circumstances. What I noticed is the more truthful I become in portraying these characters, the more I am affected by the energy. My question is how do you portray a character and be able to act in different plays without it affecting my personal life?
The world is an extremely mysterious place, it is like a giant dark ocean that hides many secrets within its depths. Within those depths for example, there is an infinite variety of life, most of which, contrary to what science would tell us, exists completely outside of humanities purview. Besides being an infinitely mysterious place, this world is also a predatory world, it is generally the case that one life form will need to consume, some or all of another life form, in order to survive.
