I'm a big Kurzweil fan in case you guys hadn't noticed, so I thought that it might be a good idea to devote a thread to the great man. I'll start this off with this recent interview by Glenn Beck:

A panel of 25 AI scientists, roboticists, and ethical and legal scholars (under the auspices of The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence) finds there to be little likelihood of a technical "Singularity" in the foreseeable future, according to a recent New Scientist article.

The results of their investigation into the risks of AI was presented at the International Joint Conference for Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) in Pasadena, California, on 15 July.

why aren't we artificial intelligence---who says that we are natural organic beings anyway?---the universe may have been programmed to create through the processes we are aware of our very selves --what is so natural about that?---d'oh!

Interesting vid from 1986

(in the final minute he talks about the next 10 years - was he accurate, in your view?)

I give him a B+ on technology predictions, but about a C on absorption-adaption of those technologies.
Lots of respect for Kurzweil, but trying to figure out how a market will react to a product, how it will spread in a culture, and even price points for the technology is extremely difficult. If you create a magic wand that makes problems disappear and fulfills wishes, but people don't want it or they find another way to do the same thing, it would look like the technology was a flop.
Here's the interesting thing though: the research he based his predictions on was probably five years old at the time--research papers typically are a few years old once the data is collected, experiments conducted and papers published. Imagine what they're working on now.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akashic_records (AR)

I'm always fascinated how since ancient times, several people had the concept of the AR. Today we might liken the AR to a cosmic hard drive metaphor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Multiverse_-_level_II.svg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiverse
http://www.thejinn.net/in_my_fathers_house.htm
http://www.djinnuniverse.com/

All throughout history, certain numbers & symbols seem to intersect through coincidence & synchronicity. http://www.pithemovie.com

The Battle of Stirling Bridge commenced on 9-11-1297. Symbolic twin pillars can be found at either end of the Stirling Bridge but no one at that time had any future point of reference.
Over 700 years later, Stirling Silliphant went to work on something big in the 1970s.
"Stirling...combined the novels into a single screenplay. Silliphant took seven characters from each and combined the plots. In The Tower, a bomb in the utility room of a 150-floor tower (the world's tallest) causes a power surge which sets a janitor's closet on fire; the escape from the top floor is by breeches buoy to the adjacent 110-story North Tower of the World Trade Center..."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Towering_Inferno#Production
"Principal photography was completed on Sept. 11th 1974."

There are tremendous implications if reincarnation is true. It means that some people were set up to die on the Titanic or in the WTC, among the many more common situations & events causing death.
http://www.realitysandwich.com/reincarnational_process
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reincarnation#Buddhism


"Mara, the Evil One.

Evil is personified in Mara, the Buddhist Devil, who represents temptation, sin, and death. He is identified with Namuche, one of the wicked demons in Indian mythology"

http://www.sacred-texts.com/evil/hod/hod10.htm


This movie depicts an ancient entity that diabolically coordinates things & zeros in on some trapped people in an elevator. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil_(film)#Plot

The November 12 & 9-11 factor:
"A similar coincidence occurred Nov. 12 when the numbers 5-8-7 came up in the New Jersey Lottery the day American Airlines Flight 587 crashed on the New York coast."
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/09/11/national/main521749.shtml
"Recorded on September 11, 1967..."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie:_The_Love_%26_Terror_Cult#The_album
Interesting that the word TERROR is part of an album title that was recorded on 9-11-1967 some 34 years before 2001.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Manson was born on November 12, 1934.
"On November 12, 1997 Yousef was found guilty..."
His Federal Prisoner number is: 03911-000
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramzi_Yousef#Arrest.2C_conviction_and_prison_life
So almost 4 years before 3 towers fell with a connection to the #911 Ramzi was given quite a curious number indeed.

The #911 & 119, 23 & 11 are just some of the numbers that seem to show up in this cosmic interactive program.

The Cosmic Wheel & The Wheel of Life

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dazu_rock_carvings_2_baoding.JPG
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazu_Rock_Carvings

After the shocking events of 9-11 some the world had started to question more aspects of reality & the wheel of life & death from 9-12 onward. Interesting how one such wheel became #912.

"The Parliament of Religions opened on 11 September 1893 at the Art Institute of Chicago."

"At the end of the film, the camera zooms slowly towards a wall in the Overlook and a 1921 photograph, revealed to include Jack Torrance seen at middle of a 1921 party. In an interview with Michel Ciment, Kubrick overtly declared that Jack was a reincarnation of an earlier official at the hotel."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shining_(film)#The_photograph
Interesting how this movie implied that Jack was set up to return for another troubling life.
In the case of Dylan Klebold who was born on 9-11-1981, he seemed to be on a pre-set path with his partner in crime.

"While he is trying to board the underground at Charing Cross, Jason's cap, which has become a talisman for Marcus, blows off his head. Delayed by trying to find the cap, he misses his train and sees it explode in the tunnel during the 2005 London Bombings." (7-7)

James Burke started off his CONNECTIONS documentary at the WTC in 1978 & mentions a Flight 911.

Whether its rings & discs or spiral galaxies, we are in some kind of a cosmic recording & projection. There seems to be a broad spectrum of personalities & life experiences. Perhaps some entities are only in this for them selves & enjoy being the tricksters.

Adding to JF's 9-11 related items:

A cornerstone laying ceremony for the Pentagon was held on September 11, 1941 - sixty years prior to the day that a hole was blown in it by some flying object. (That 32nd degree Free Mason FDR personally designated and insisted on the site of construction for the Pentagon gets into a whole other arena of the overall sacred geometry layout of Washington D.C.)


Chris Carter, the creative genius behind the X-Files, launched a new television show in the spring of 2001 called the The Lone Gunman. The pilot episode depicted a plot to fly an airliner (that had been taken over by remote control piloting) into one of the WTC Twin Towers. The purpose, as depicted by the narrative of the TV show, was to lay blame on Middle-Eastern dictator as a pretext to invade. IOW, a false flag event blamed on another party.

The Lone Gunman, Pilot Episode (Air Date: March 4, 2001)
