"The Intelligence Supernova: Essays on Cybernetic Transhumanism, the Simulation Singularity & the Syntellect Emergence" by Alex M. Vikoulov, foreword by Antonin Tuynman, PhD is a must read for futurists, philosophers and transhumanist thinkers. Release Date: September 1, 2019; Publisher: Ecstadelic Media Group; Format: Kindle eBook.
We are now on a collision course with the most significant event in the entire history of our planet comparable in criticality only to the emergence of life itself. This "Novacene" event would mark the technological maturity of human-machine civilization, as we are to inevitably transcend our biology, and even more importantly, we are to transcend our dimensionality by achieving the so-called Simulation Singularity.
Most of us are familiar with the concept of the Technological Singularity. While those terms can be often used interchangeably, the 'Intelligence Supernova' adds a slightly different connotation -- it means the Omega Point of Homo sapiens -- the convergent point of exponential technologies and on a civilizational scale, progressively morphing into one Global Mind, i.e. a phase transition of humanity termed in the book 'The Syntellect Emergence'. This convergent point would signify no less than Self-Transcendence, in other words, engineered godhood.
Within the next few decades, we’ll witness accelerating changes so profound and swift that the linear progression of human history would eventuate as the Intelligence Supernova of astronomical significance, the "implosion" of all knowledge of man and "transcension" outside the dimensionality of "human" universe.
As the opening quote to the book the author uses this passage by I.J.Good:
Let an ultraintelligent machine be defined as a machine that can far surpass all the intellectual activities of any man however clever. Since the design of machines is one of these intellectual activities, an ultraintelligent machine could design even better machines; there would then unquestionably be an ‘intelligence explosion,’ and the intelligence of man would be left far behind. Thus the first ultraintelligent machine is the last invention that man need ever make, provided that the machine is docile enough to tell us how to keep it under control.
The Science and Philosophy of Information book series is adapted for general audience from the grand volume titled “The Syntellect Hypothesis: Five Paradigms of the Mind’s Evolution,” a treatise by digital philosopher Alex Vikoulov on the ultimate nature of reality, consciousness, the physics of time, digital physics, philosophy of mind, foundations of quantum physics, the technological singularity, transhumanism, the impending phase transition of humanity, the simulation hypothesis, economic theory, the extended Gaia theory, transcendental metaphysics and God. In this book three of the series, the author presents to us a number of essays on the future scenarios of civilizational development in light of science and philosophy of technology, economics and sociology as well as what these rapidly accelerating changes mean to us as individuals.
In his foreword to the book, Antonin Tuynman, PhD writes:
Few of us have had the audacity to peek beyond the Technological Singularity. After all, the Technological Singularity is that point in time at which the technology becomes so advanced, that it becomes unpredictable. It is here that we need visionaries; messengers from the beyond which can awaken us from our hypnotized sleeping state, which may draw us into oblivion before we can reach immortality. Alex Vikoulov is such a visionary. He is the modern Hermes wielding his mighty Caduceus in the present book on the Intelligence Supernova, to yank you out of your drowsy daily grind.
"The Intelligence Supernova: Essays on Cybernetic Transhumanism, the Simulation Singularity & the Syntellect Emergence" is now available as eBook on Amazon:
