Searching for a single Singularity

Table of Ten Topic on Singularity
“The problem is not simply that the Singularity represents the passing of humankind from center stage, but that it contradicts our most deeply held notions of being.” Just one of the many musings by Vernor Vinge on the coming Singularity. In the tradition of the Table of Ten we will gather to investigate, share, and come to know more about this radical change ahead – the moment man creates a sentient and conscious other. At this Table of Ten influential people are being invited that can have serious impact of life of others due to their financial, network, or their knowledgeable state of being. This Table of Ten will explore not just technology, it also touches on philosophy, psychology, economics, and our understanding of the very essence of what is consciousness and sentience.
The guests and Ritual
the 10 will be hand-picked and invited from different backgrounds of business, politics, philosophy, sports, music, and art. With different, exercises and questions this Table of Ten will try to investigate what is truly of value to leave behind. Is there a common denominator, can we agree on key values, are their life lessons to be learned. Lets find out.
