    A technological revolution via digital supremacy. Twenty years down the road when somebody asks you what it was like before or how it changed the world, what will you say? Will you tell the truth? Will you embellish it a little for humorous flair? Will you call them a newfag and punch them in the face?

    The singularity will not happen in the time it has been recently plotted, in 30 or so years. Both the OP and myself know that the mind is capable of things that are beyond a normal and rational explanation and this knowledge gives us insight into the reality things aren't so black and white.

    Idk you seem like a pretty sane person to me, The Member Formerly Known As Baya. But they told me you did a lot of crazy stuff back on EDF1. So why the drastic change?

    It's funny, if you look at how memory works and see the relativity of ordinary staples of human existence like time, you start to realize that reality is a lot more fragile than it appears to be. By the way, can somebody briefly explain this singularity thing to me? I'm not familiar with that in the context that you're using it in.

    Mods were hopelessly gay back then. Like, unbelievably gay. They kept demanding that non-mods perform fellatio on them. Really. Well, not in so many words.

    Speaking of which, I've noticed that on every single forum I've been on (every single one) I've always been okay with admins but had problems with mods. Or, if they didn't have mods, I'd be okay with at least one admin.

    Rice is insinuating that machines will never take over because they can't use or comprehend "magic."

    The singularity I am refering to is the union of machine and human into one being. Aka putting a human mind into a computer.

    Yeah besides the technological hurdle we'd have to go over in 30 years which is by all means, unrealistic expectations. I counter propose that within that 30 years, humanity will find out that the human mind is capable of psychic capacities that besides doing many things, will ultimately smash the "convert humans into robots" pipe-dream.

    Really, the mods here seem to get a long pretty well, the ones who are on speaking terms at least.

    I'd leave that google sponsored nightmare, move deep into the woods and let loose my inner cave man.

    I'm sorry but due to the heavy influence of the proto-techno-environmentalists, everything beyond city limits is off limits to all save specialised bureaucrats.
