"Stanford on itunes"

"Understanding the singularity will alter our perspective on the significance of our past and the ramifications for our future. To truly understand it inherently changes one's view of life in general and one's own particular life."
"The present is a deeply personal moment. And for Ray Kurzweil, so deep and understood it is that only people who venture in proximity to his event horizon of consciousness - the border of his self-sustained solipsist integrity - will ever be able to moderately understand it."

"In 2009, business meetings will routinely take place in virtual reality."
"To punch a hole into the fabric of space-time, Kaku explained, would require the energy of a star or negative energy, an exotic entity with an energy of less than nothing."

"If you want to know what the Earth is like one million years from now, I’ll tell you how to do that,” said Greene, a consultant for “Déjà Vu,” a recent movie that dealt with time travel. “Build a spaceship. Go near the speed of light for a length of time—that I could calculate. Come back to Earth, and when you step out of your ship you will have aged perhaps one year while the Earth would have aged one million years. You would have traveled to Earth’s future."

Artificial Womb-2015?

"How can marriage survive the Singularity? Procreation and sex will be completely divorced. Once artificial wombs are created no woman will want to go through that ordeal. Men will not be required in any facet of having a child. The economy is over once we have molecular manufacturing. There is no need of a husband for support. AI nannies are far more 'loving' and gentle than any person can be.

After about 600 years of marriage how many couples will still be intact? After a few fights where you 'heal' with your virtual lover in cyberspace will another actual person be attractive ever again? Why? I can have my ideal mate who always says exactly what I need to hear. Why bother with messy reality?"

"I agree that the nature of marriage will change. Love has been described as a strong selector.
Families have been the basic sociological unit of every culture thus far, and in the past, caring for one's family was often a zero-sum situation. With radically altered social and economic conditions, I think our ability to love (i.e. select, or assign value) will expand greatly beyond our relations and those who happen to be physically near us."
