Singularity General Articles

The Singularity is an Ascension

“The Singularity” is an event of expansion of intelligence that feeds back into itself creating a period of exponential growth. We find it difficult to imagine much less define a state of super intelligence, but we can postulate that it will offer solutions and provide opportunities. An Ascension is the process of moving to a […]

QUANTUM STUFF – Quantum Mechanics

STRUCTURE OF THE ATOM A simple map of the atom: Particles – in the early days of atomic theory, all components were thought of as particles and this model is still taught at elementary levels. Nucleus – is a combination of larger particles found together at the center of an atom. The particles are the […]

QUANTUM STUFF – Introduction

Quantum computing is not simple to understand. A good starting place is some of the ideas in quantum mechanics since they are fundamental to quantum computing. This is an introduction to a series of posts on stuff related to quantum quantum mechanics and quantum computing. Definition of “quantum” An amount or quantity of something A […]

Exponential Change is Here

Legacy | Future of Everything with Jason Silva | Singularity University – [] Futurists and entrepreneurs Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil created Singularity University to communicate the implications of exponential technological progress. Humans are only wired to think about change linearly, but exponential change is here, and the impact of exponential technological change will be […]

A Mathematician Who Wants To Get You Laid

Clio Cresswell is a mathematician who believes in using math in her everyday life. She’s also good looking. Mathematics and sex | Clio Cresswell | TEDxSydney – [] Mathematics and sex are deeply intertwined. From using mathematics to reveal patterns in our sex lives, to using sex to prime our brain for certain types of […]

Shaping Sound With Metamaterials

Metamaterials have the ability to create an effect based on their structure. Most metamaterials in recent news have involved optical or electrical effects. Researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Bristol have invented metamaterials that bend, shape, and focus sound. This has potential applications in medical imaging, sonar, haptics, and personal audio. Metamaterial bricks and […]

Fiber Reinforced Hydrogel Fabric

Hydrogels are made from long chemical chains called polymers that have an ability to absorb a lot of water, often forming a stretchy, rubbery, colloid like substance. Hydrogels often change their structure in reaction to changes in PH (acid/base), temperature, or salt content. They are being used in tissue scaffolds, wound bandaging, diapers, contact lenses, […]

Wind Tunnel Sky Diving Becomes Athletic Art

New wind tunnels have made ground based sky diving widespread. In this video we see a freestyle performance at the 2017 Wind Games in Spain. Maja Kuczynska – Freestyle at The Wind Games 2017 – []

Ceramic Metal Composites

CERMETs are composites of ceramics combined with metals. Most ceramics are oxides of aluminum, magnesium, and beryllium. They are typically strong but brittle and offer both thermal and electrical insulating attributes. Metals on the other hand are more malleable and are usually good thermal and electrical conductors. Combinations of these features offer innovative applications. Rapid […]

The Singularity is an Ascension

An Ascension is the act of an individual or group or species collectively raising their level of consciousness away from simple physical existence and toward spiritual existence. Because this describes an ascending beyond our current state, it is difficult to define. In science fiction, it ranges from a fairly static physical form with greatly enhanced […]
