A Profound Understanding of Technology


The rate of technological growth is very predictable and is exponential. To draw a correlation; the Mayan calendar is understood to be a measure of significant technological events with an exponential decrease in interval time.

This almost immediately disproves the man-in-the-sky idea of god because once we have successfully reverse engineered the human body we will be able to make vast performance improvements. The predictability of technology also simultaneously proves that there is some kind of divine plan at work.

The machines will eventually take over but we won't be separate from them, we will become self-engineered, bio-mechanical, super intelligent beings. The singularity is upon us :D

I have a different view. What if there is a god and his plan was for humans to evolve and make their own enhancements. What if humans were just a "generic" template, and we were meant to advance technologically, to the point where we could begin to make improvements to our own design.

As far as I know, most religious descriptions of a god don't preclude this option. At any rate, I think that traditional religion is wrong, and generally attempts to hold back our progress. Which is a shame, because my view of God says that the opposite should be true.

Ohhhhh fuck, Childhood's End was right. The overmind is coming to harvest us. Abort! ABORT!

I think i got a bit over excited, this is certainly not "proof" of those things. I think a the safer assumption however is that god is simply a synonym for 'the universe', including everything we don't yet understand about it.
