The Singularity & ET - Is "It", and are "They", near?
If even ten per cent of what Kurzweil predicts happens in our lifetimes, we're in for a wild, wild ride!
As it relates to UFOs, however, given where we may soon be going (or we may already be there), do you really think aliens hundreds, or thousands, of years more advanced than us are visiting Earth as biological entities?
It just doesn't make sense. AI? Possibly. Biological beings? Hard to believe.
In the end, it might not matter. But consider this - in terms of "contact", what if the "aliens" are simply waiting for us to take the leap - not into space, but into our own future, where we become like them?
The more one stops to think about it, the very notion of extraterrestrial biological entities visiting us borders on the ridiculous when compared with the prospect of some form of AI.
Food for thought.
