Anti-Apocalypse

The “apocalypse” is considered to be the final battle between good and evil that brings about the end of the world and judgement day. But the Greek root of the word, apocalypse, actually describes a lifting of a veil or disclosure of truth after a period of darkness and confusion. This is not an end, but a beginning, and a beginning of a period of illumination and enlightenment, perhaps even a state of rapture.

Using this definition, the singularity is going to be an “apocalyptic” event, because it will be the beginning of a new era of enlightenment.
