Shock Level Four

“The Singularity, Jupiter Brains, Powers, complete mental revision, ultraintelligence, posthumanity, Alpha-Point computing, Apotheosis, the total evaporation of ‘life as we know it.’ Singularitarians and not much else.’

—Eliezer S. Yudkowsky, “Future Shock Levels

S-curves of granular exponentials, leading plateaus past
knees to new rises, new kinds, transcending
along mathematical certainties (or so Ray Kurzweil claims.)
What I wish to remain.
Noosphere, the sphere of human thought
expansion

starting: here,
Earth, out to Mars, beyond,
destination:
everywhere.
It takes Gall not god.
You or Universe
and what you mean
to be there.
Last human, long Live humanity.
A.I. Artificial Intelligence, and also the Stanley
Kubrick/Steven Spielberg adaptation
of “Super-Toys Last All Summer”
by Brian Aldiss.
Virtual gains Reality
(mixed but never really lost.)
What I won’t
in seeking
my own permanence.
The shape of boTtlenecks
and ceilings,
pressures and plumes,
some solutions for Fermi’s
Paradox, the wall before
the knee, t-shaped and fallingup

before explosion of
branchY radiating tree-
states traced along descent
histories in thicket reaching arms.
