Hi, A deep understanding of the accelerative growth in complexity, highlighted most effectively so far by the technological singularity stance of Ray Kurzweil, is crucial if we are to properly interpret history on the longest scales. I have developed an alternative viewpoint based on analysing events from a zoological perspective: The accelerative growth in complexity of neural networks is a roughly 550 million year old trajectory. This trajectory displays emergence by way of communication revolutions, as points in time, in accordance with a geometric series. Interspersed between these points is a period during which there is an ecological revolution through a transition in the mode of sustenance. The next communication revolution is due around the year 2043, but whatever might emerge it will not be sufficient enough for the continued accelerative growth in complexity of neural networks.

Not a bad post of accelerated growth of zoological history very interesting.

Thanks! :)

I've been interested in accelerative development for a very long time... probably around six years. Can't really remember when (like so many out there) my general reading of articles on a wide range of topics (as my blog posting illustrates) sparked my interest in the inherent quickening pace of development and connected underlying patterns. I only came accross Ray Kurzweil's work on the technological singularity (while surfing Wikipedia) around a couple of years back. That was helpful because by then I was already following my own avenue of research and it was nice to know that it was a mainstream current topic.

How can such an important topic not be addressed at any major university; perhaps any? I like to view all problems from an evolutionary viewpoint but as i am sure you will be aware, the theory of natural selection does not have any 'forward direction'. How therefore can accelerative development and evolution be married and live happily ever after. LOL. I wonder, when we do have further insights into these matters, what their kids will lool like! LOL. Only Kidding.

Thanks again for your comment.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Night.
