#Singularity2045 on Google+ Going Strong

The Singularity 2045 page on Google+ is developing well. Currently around 100 to 300 new people are following the page each day, adding the page to their circles, which means if the rate of following continues there should be at least between 30,000 and 40,000 followers at the end of 2013; possibly there could be 80,000 followers be the end of the 2013.

On 19th May 2013 the total number of people who've added the page to their circles is 11,327. I will probably start adding managers soon to cope with the larger audience. Below is a badge for the page and below that is a copy of the page description.

The Singularity is all about human-level Artificial Intelligence exploding. It's a colossal explosion of intelligence. Nanotech, biotech, synthetic biology, Stem Cells, 3D-printing, quantum computing, and robotics are also important. AI will evolve intellectual powers VERY quickly because AI isn't limited by the slowness of human evolution. AI will radically improve our world. AI will help humans become immortal-super-beings. Technology is accelerating.

Robots will become humans. Traditional humans will reprogram the human machine, we will rewrite our DNA code via gene therapy, Stem Cells, synthetic biology, and other aspects of augmentation. The distinction between biology and machines will blur, due to the sophistication of machines, thus all machines will be biological. Machines of the future won't be clunking metallic contraptions. All intelligent beings of the future will be very organic regardless of their life being based on DNA, graphene, or qubits. We will re-engineer our brains. Everything will be free.

The year 2045 is our absolute latest deadline for the Singularity. Hopefully via our awareness we can make it happen sooner. We are helping to accelerate technological progress. So called "machines" will be self-healing and alive in the future. Via our awareness we could make the Singularity happen sooner instead of later.

Singularity 2045
helps you discover the latest science and tech news. If you have cutting-edge news to share with Singularity 2045 please join the Singularity Thinkers community, or mention +Singularity 2045 in a post/comment, or email us, or post links in the comments here. We also have an action-plan to raise awareness.


On the 1st day of each month at 20:45 hours (your local time) the goal is to raise Singularity-awareness. Think about the future; upload 20:45 clocks; share a link, or send Singularity messages to friends or strangers. When the clock reaches 20:45 hours (8:45pm), on the 1st day of every month, think about how your life will have changed radically in the year 2045. Take some time to educate people about our amazing future. Spread the word on the 1st day of every month, ideally at 20:45 hours.

Example message:

Nanobot revolution, AI aware, technological utopia: Singularity 2045.


Many people are raising awareness all the time, every day of the week, at all hours, and that is fine. The 1st day of the month at 20:45 is a time when you can give extra special focus to Singularity issues.

The year 2045 is our deadline-target but you don't need to raise awareness at 8:45pm exactly. Any time between 20:25 and 20:45 hours on the first day of the month is OK. Due to our busy lives any time on the 1st day of the month is actually OK regarding our monthly awareness thrust.

20:45 hours is merely a guideline. The important thing is to raise awareness. The Singularity could happen earlier than year 2045.


20:45 hours relates to wherever you are in the world. Your personal time will be the time-zone you use, although if you are raising awareness for someone in a different zone you can send act in relation to their time zone. The choice is yours. Time is relative for each person. All zones are valid because this is a global movement. The Singularity will be a period of enormous change and flexibility, therefore it's appropriate for this awareness campaign to have flexible and inclusive attitudes regarding all time zones.


You don't need to generate awareness on the 1st of every month. Generate Singularity awareness if you feel inspired or if you remember. Relax and go with the flow. Take it easy. Send instant messages, mobile/cell phone messages, emails, comments, word of mouth, or share a link. Whatever you desire will be OK. If you are feeling brave, you can approach a stranger in the street and explain the Singularity to them. Click here to +1 and share this page.


Photograph your clock (time display) set to the time of 20:45 and then upload it. Once you've uploaded your 20:45 image, make sure you tag Singularity 2045 in the photo.


Think about your current smart device. Now think about a phone from 2010. Smart-phones in the year 2010 are more powerful than average laptops from year 2000, and your current phone or other device is even smarter. Laptops and phones evolve much quicker than humans evolve in ten years. Technology reproduces rapidly.

Technological growth in 2010 was slow compared to the rate in 2020 or 2030. Progress is quicker each year. Technology is growing exponentially. Computer intelligence (the foundation of artificial intelligence) experiences intellectual augmentation yearly. When human level AI is born, perhaps sometime between 2025 and 2035, the pace of technological and scientific development will then become very rapid, reaching a critical mass of explosiveness by 2045 at the latest.

Our world will be very different in the year 2045. In the year 2010 people were becoming aware of speedy technological progress: new developments regarding the internet occur every six months. In the year 2020 the internet will be deeply embedded in everyday life. In 2013 computers were clearly diverging from their early origins, furthermore 3D-printing was rapidly evolving thus medical biopolymers or sugary foods were printed and NASA was funding food 3D-printing for astronauts.

Awareness of "exponential growth" is crucial for grasping this issue. Our rate of progress is not linear, we are progressing exponentially. Many people in year 2010 didn't know they would see around 20,000 years of progress (at the 2001 rate) during this century instead of the usual 100 years. The majority of progress will happen upon reaching the Singularity in 2045.

Imagine 20,000 years on top of what science and technology at the beginning of the 21st century has already achieved. Doubling a century would great. It is difficult to contemplate the awesomeness of 20,000 years condensed into one century. This is the Singularity.

Key Aspects

All disease will be cured. We will live forever. We will reconfigure our DNA into any pattern we desire according to our wildest dreams. We will colonize space. The possibilities are limitless. Anything will be possible. Time for utopia. Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around. Our goal is RAPID GLOBAL AWARENESS regarding how the Singularity will transform the human race.

Year 2045 is our deadline for the Singularity. Heightened awareness ensures the Singularity happens sooner instead of later. Our goal is to make the Singularity happen by 2045 at the latest. The year 2045 is a safe date, the absolute latest date when the Singularity will happen. We hope 2045 will represent a midpoint in the explosion where the explosion has been ongoing for a number of years, or at least 2045 will represent the latest beginning point when the Singularity will occur. Growing awareness feeds back into the system thereby inspiring greater progress and greater investment in sci-tech, thus awareness grows then explodes. We can change the world.


Post-Scarcity is an alternate name for the Singularity; these two concepts are simply different viewpoints of the same event. Post-Scarcity is a more socio-economic view, a more sociological view, because it deals more with sociological ramifications instead of merely focusing on the technology. Our greatest resource is intelligence, it is the source of all resources but currently intelligence is scarce, thus from explosive intelligence total freedom (limitless resources) will flow. Join the Post-Scarcity Warriors for more info regarding the PS viewpoint.

Post-Scarcity is the point where technology explodes intelligently thereby allowing all needs to be fulfilled. All resources will be limitless due to greater access to resources combined with ultra-efficient usage of available resources, thus everything will be free because the only purpose of money is to regulate scarce resources.
