    Season 3 of the Mighty Boosh did a really awesome parody of avant-garde films.

    This sounds more like Dr. Seuss.

    Is the singularity near or far?
    Is it in that nice red car?
    Is the singularity in a house?
    Or is it with a small brown mouse?
    The singularity ate my ham!
    I do not like it, Sam I Am.

    You already passed it and will have to circle back around.

    I think it is entirely appropriate for this thread. :wink:

    How do they know what a "paradigm shift" is?? Isn't it really arbitrary?

    Not really, Kurzweil explains what he means by that pretty clearly if you watch any of his talks.
