I just noticed that one of these quotes doesn't actually do anything to describe the singularity. It could just as easily work on a page about charity, intervention policies, the drug trade, etc.

While I appreciate seeing a positive point of view, could whoever put this here replace it with a different quote in support of the singularity that, you know, has something to do with the singularity?

  • "I have had it. I have had it with crack houses, dictatorships, torture chambers, disease, old age, spinal paralysis, and world hunger. I have had it with a planetary death rate of 150,000 sentient beings per day. I have had it with this planet. I have had it with mortality. None of this is necessary. The time has come to stop turning away from the mugging on the corner, the beggar on the street. It is no longer necessary to look nervously away, repeating the mantra: "I can't solve all the problems of the world." We can. We can end this."
