I’m led to believe that the Singularity could happen abruptly, enough so that you might miss it if you weren’t paying attention. Two things have me wondering if it’s already happened.
One, I keep seeing this ad for “Free installation of solar system.”
Two, I was reading a book by Nancy Kress, in which there is a scene where our heroine encounters a seriously gene-engineered dog. It has four adorable pink ears, a rabbit’s tail, and eyes as large as saucers. But it also says “Hello” to our heroine. She thinks “Dogs couldn’t talk. The vocal equipment didn’t allow it, the law didn’t allow it, the canine IQ didn’t allow it. ”
But, my dog says “Hello”.
