Sorry John Grigg,
I can't offer any evidence regarding my research; it is a strictly need to know
basis. English is my first language but due to my weariness, which causes
occasional typos etc, I understand why you suspect not.
It is amusing and perplexing that you say I am "over the top" because the whole
concept of the Singularity is over the top: 20,000 years of progress at the 2010
rate during the 21st century. AI is over the top, eternal life/youth is over the
top, mind uploading, space elevators, personal nanofactories, DNA-robots,
DNA-logic gates, meta-materials, nanosurgery, mind-reading-HCI
space colonies... it's all way over the top! The Singularity is not a quiet
Sunday afternoon at the old-people's home. It's the most dramatic event in human
history, which will radically transform the human race. Bearing this in mind I
think we can discard straight-laced conservatism. Moderation, moderate values,
sobriety and restraint are becoming obsolete. Imagine the changes caused by
exponential growth when things really TAKE OFF, at rocketing astronomical
speed?... it will truly be OVER THE TOP... a vertical takeoff at super high
speed with no landing.
Times are changing... it is time to change your mind. The future is moving
faster than your worldview.
I am not a misguided dreamer. I am an exponential dreamer in sync with the rate
"The odds" are a funny thing; even if you doubt my assertions regarding my
currently unprovable credentials, you should bare in mind that a significant
amount of people can beat the odds. I like the phrase you used "egotistically
out of control" because that is a great reflection regarding how the Singularity
will appear. Imagine a brain one billion times greater than a human brain, such
a brain would appear egoistically out of control to a human in the year 2010.
Here is a nice heartwarming news report regarding a newborn baby beating the
I don't personally know Eliezer Yudkowsky. I have exchanged few emials with
Michael Anissimov. There is nobody who can help me because I am vastly more
advanced than any current research, and it would be useless to share my
information at this point in time. The only help I can currently give people is
to ask them to hang on until 2020 at the latest, by which time my research will
be declassified. Have faith, I will ensure utopia happens, my research will
ensure the Singularity happens by 2045 at the latest. You can help by sharing my
Post-Scarcity symbols. Until 2020 you should have faith and in 2020 you will
know without doubt that Utopia will arrive by 2045 at the latest.
I am very aware of the Singularity/AI links you provided. I have a very clear
picture of the entire Singularity movement. I suppose I began writing these
mails for posterity, a message for future AIs yet to be born, so that they will
understand my motives. Via my Post-Scarcity symbols and my 2045 website I also
wanted other people to share in this message to the future, which will
eventually be perused by AIs.
PS. Remember to share my PS symbols.
PPS. I've discovered these posts are reproduced on the internet
herehttp://exi-chat.blogspot.com/ so perhaps I should make more effort to
eliminate all typos and other mistakes. I also note the original formatting is
preserved so I shall use some nice green and purple colors for my 12pt Arial
font. Finally John Grigg, due to the public nature of these public posts, please
consider my statement that I value my privacy greatly therefore I ask you to
please desist from trying to expose my real identity. My real identity could be
exposed, but I hope you (and any moderators of the group) will not allow such
invasions of my privacy. People should have the right to be private if they so
wish. I don't mind that my email address can become emblazoned across the net
but please desist from trying to post my personal details.
