Indeed.
I've been asked to remove videos twice...Hate it when that happens.

One figured that fewer people would buy their track for $.99 if I had it on youtube...

So I renamed it.
This is it, actually.

It's covered in peanut butter and I am about ready to suck on it.
What?
I LIKE peanut butter.

Your song, is that you?
It's really good..you need to consider using your own voice more, closer to your own voice..people..most of them..would relate more..just my two cents

you are so very gifted, in so many directions

I never read the Singularity book, but now plan too


Have you heard of that book Black Swan?
http://www.amazon.com/Black-Swan-Impact ... 1400063515

My H pointed it out to me, knowing it was right up my alley. (he's got it on Kindle)
Already, from the prolog, I realize that being an "alien abductee/experiencer" (which I am, fyi, not sure you knew/know that about me)it's a "black swan"
I am surprised that connection hasn't been made before by more "learned" UFO/Experiencer types

Oh no, I can't sing even that well.

I haven't heard of Black Swan or many other books as I'm not well read at all. It's a little embarrassing sometimes. Looks like an interesting book. I am quite fond of the subject of randomness and chaos theory.

I might have been abducted, who knows? Some strange gaps in memory but I doubt every explanation to some extent. You sound more sure about yours being aliens/UFO's. Curious....

Here's another article on the singularity.

Indifference, not malice



Anthropomorphic ideas of a "robot rebellion," in which AIs spontaneously develop primate-like resentments of low tribal status, are the stuff of science fiction. The more plausible danger stems not from malice, but from the fact that human survival requires scarce resources: resources for which AIs may have other uses [13] [14]. Superintelligent AIs with real-world traction, such as access to pervasive data networks and autonomous robotics, could radically alter their environment, e.g., by harnessing all available solar, chemical, and nuclear energy. If such AIs found uses for free energy that better furthered their goals than supporting human life, human survival would become unlikely.

Many AIs will converge toward being optimizing systems, in the sense that, after self-modification, they will act to maximize some goal [13]. For instance, AIs developed under evolutionary pressures would be selected for values that maximized reproductive fitness, and would prefer to allocate resources to reproduction rather than supporting humans [1]. Such unsafe AIs might actively mimic safe benevolence until they became powerful, since being destroyed would prevent them from working toward their goals. Thus, a broad range of AI designs may initially appear safe, but if developed to the point of a Singularity could cause human extinction in the course of optimizing the Earth for their goals.

see..this is why I wonder if the "grays" are really from our future

with all the genetic manipulation..then add all this biotech..a.i. stuff

it adds up to the "grays" to me

I feel they are coming back in time to try to reclaim something that they/we lost
