In the National Portrait Gallery

In the National Portrait Gallery in London, I was struck by a portrait of Sir Stephen Hawking. The description on it said, in reference to Stephen Hawking, that "all he ever wanted to do was think" I found that really interesting....at first, well, that's a nice adaptation, havinga physical handicap and actually bringing yourself to accept the things you cannot change, etc... but I also found it to be more of a sign of the singularity to come. In the future, we'll all be vegetables hookeud up to a matrix so that we can just do that, think. Eventually, we won't eeven be vegetables, we'll just be thinking processes in the machine. Sorry, this needs more elaboration. Will talk about it later, fur is bad, but for now, read the Ag eof... Age of Spriti... Age of Spriri... Age of Spri... Age of Spiritual Machines by Ray Kurzwze... Kurzweil... see left.
