“By 2045 we’ll have multiplied our intelligence a billion-fold through the merger and exponential growth with information technology. It’s such a profound transformation that we call it a singularity, borrowing a metaphor from physics where it’s really the event horizon that we’re talking about.” ~ Ray Kurzweil
In the year 2000 B.C. <+/- 200 years> (and possibly again in 2045 A.D.) humankind became one.
Became one apart from the Divine right. Became one without the necessity of the idea of “God” (though it remains ironic that mere existence requires more than just an “idea” but an actuality of “God, the first Mover” – something which escapes the God deniers who place intent within the mind as surpassing the physical which cries out the concreteness of a Creator… but I digress.)
Humankind became one and God Almighty personally intervened to end the power and strength which the unity of the special creation, who bore His image, would wield.
It is because mankind bears the image of God that our potential (though finite) is immense. If mankind would ever operate in perfect unity our potential would approach infinity thereby requiring the personal attention of the truly infinite, the Creator of all.
One time in history we as a human race commanded the full attention of Almighty God, Creator of all, not because of our perversions (as in the time of Noah) or just pockets of cities in full rebellion (Sodom and Gomorrah), but the entirety of God’s image personified by the dust of the earth and the breath of the Creator took God’s attention from the throne of Grace because of our unity of MIND.
And then for the second time in the history of space–time God intervened with the forward progress of the near divine potential of man:
God sent out Adam and Eve from the Garden, that although they were like the Trinity in knowing good and evil (because they dined on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil), they must not eat of the tree of life so as not to live forever.
God said in 2000 B.C. <+/- 200 years> “Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do (building a city and a tower): and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” ~ GENESIS 11:6.
TOWER OF BABEL
Three centuries after the flood of Noah, the human race, through the influence of Nimrod (the mighty hunter; GENESIS 10:9), traveled to the land of Shinar and lived there. Now the population was about a million people at that time (figuring 339 years after the flood, starting with eight people at a conservative 3.5% growth rate). Then the Bible says:
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.” ~ GENESIS 11:4,5
God then observed the coalescence of the mind of man, and saw that the offspring of this collective would rule the world in the image of humanism.
He then confounded the language and scattered the human empire so that man may not fulfill their imaginations.
And this is where the city (and tower) received its historic name: “Babel”, which means “confusion”.
TOWER OF BABEL, 2045A.D.
Some very smart researchers believe that we are on the cusp of a unity within the minds of the human race. They call it the “Singularity”.
Simply: they say in a matter of decades, computer power will attain such exponential growth that humans will be able to join with machine and become infinitely intelligent… and live forever.
As preposterous as that sounds, it is hard to argue with the science involved.
I mean, the cell phone on my desk has more power then a computer filling a building a mere few decades ago.
They say a short time from now, we will have computers the size of red blood cells we can insert into our bodies which will monitor our health to such a degree that sickness will no longer exist.
Could they then have a computer in our skull to augment our thoughts, memory and computation ability?
Right now with your cell phone, you are almost infinitely intelligent: if I ask you any question, you can find its answer with Google.
Is it a stretch to have that capability installed mechanically inside your brain?
They also say with this computation advancement will come the ability for computers to build themselves, therefore speeding up exponentially the advancement of all technologies.
They say this technological enlightenment will reach its zenith in 2045 A.D., at which point you can say “now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
So, if in fact this does occur, will we see (for only the second time in the history of man) God’s full attention commanded to the impending earth wide human actualization of becoming one apart from God?
And will we see God (for the third time) intervene with the forward progress of the near divine potential of man?
What will we see when humankind rises again with a second Tower of Babel?
The intervention of the Creator upon His creation…
“Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.”
