Singularity and Original Singularity


Recently, a word comes to us that describes a condition which has not been before the modern epoch.  One of these words is this word singularity. Before we discuss this word, let us reflect a bit on the issue of the Tree of Life (ets chayim) and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (ets da’ath tov v’ra).

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 2:9
And out of the ground YAHUAH ELOHIYM made every tree to grow that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

So, two significant trees were made to grow in the garden – one which breathed eternal life, and the other which breathed death. But, we note that it did not breath death for mankind – rather, it breathed death for the individual man, and life continued.  It was the autonomous individual – the singular mind – that was designated for death, yet the progeny of the man, born without memory and without a structured cognitive history, continues in a stream of life.

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 3:22
And YAHUAH ELOHIYM said: Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:

We read here that because man ate of the knowledge of good and evil he could no longer have the tree of life available to him, lest he live forever. Consider this in its full implication.  Man, now having the knowledge of both good and evil, having eternal life, would most assuredly come to be at enmity with YAH – to compete and ultimately to war with YAH.

So, we ask the question: what is this knowledge of good and evil?  Consider that it may be the knowledge of man’s ability to compete with YAH in the heavens, should he become eternal in his existence.

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 11:6-7
And YAHUAH said: Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one an-other's speech.

We notice, however, that one aspect of this new-found knowledge, is that both Adam and Chuah become self-aware.  Compare:

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 2:25
And they were both naked, the man and his woman, and were not ashamed.

Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 3:6-7
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit, and did eat, and gave also unto her man with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

We see here that self-awareness occurs.  This awareness was something more than just consciousness, however.  We know that Adam could speak at this point, because he names all of the animals (2:20), and he calls his helpmate woman (2:22).

The self-awareness therefore included something more than speech and the ability to understand words.  It was the awareness of something that would cause the man and the woman to cover themselves.  Let’s take a look at some Ivriyt (Hebrew) for a moment:

In the Ivriyt, we have this word (נָאַף) na’aph (Strong's 5003. Generally, this word is interpreted to mean to apostatize: to be an adulterer or adulteress); to commit adultery, or to be a person who breaks wedlock. However, when we look at the sod meaning of the word, me find a little bit more. 

There are three letters in this word: 1) the nun (which means the seed, even of life); 2) the aleph (which means the head of the body of MASHIACH; and 3) the pey (which means, the mouth, or the spoken word). Now in this analytic, the English meaning is given by reading the letters backward, i.e., the spoken word / the godhead (for lack of a better word) / the seed of life. 

So, in essence, this word na’aph means when your mouth becomes the godhead over the disposition of your seed of life, you have stopped listening to him who gave you life, and asserted your own authority over the placement of your seed (whether female or male).  You have fallen away from the relationship given to you by the Creator, and have followed your own commands to a foreign spiritual and sexual relationship.

In the garden, Adam and Chuah followed the voice of someone else! YAHUAH directed them to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil lest they die, but HaSatan told them a different story – a different mouth spoke a different word and became the godhead over the disposition of the seed. Did he bring death to the whole of mankind? No.  He brought a reboot (as we would say in techno-jargon) to each man, where the consciousness in existence would perish from the control of the given flesh, to be replaced by another whose consciousness would be completely independent.  YAHUAH then limited the number of the years of mankind, ensuring that no man would live beyond a day (a thousand earth years). See Kepha Sheniy (2 Peter) 3:8 

So, this new awareness – the knowledge that man could elect to follow another voice other than the voice of the Creator – ultimately brought death (as we understand it) to the world, because the Creator could not allow those who would listen to another voice to obtain an eternal existence.  This new awareness can be understood in the modern vernacular as singularity; i.e., that moment when mankind achieved an eternal consciousness of self-awareness similar in every respect to the consciousness of YAH (only without the infinite knowledge which would exist in He who has an infinite existence).

As we approach this threshold again in the modern epoch, we should view this organic process in man as original singularity, or for short, original sin.  Consider, however that we now seek to recreate a similar experience in the technology we are currently building.

Consider the definition of this word singularity:

Wiktionary sets forth the following five aspects of Singularity:

  1. The state of being singular, distinct, peculiar, uncommon or unusual
  2. A point where all parallel lines meet
  3. A point where a measured variable reaches unmeasurable or infinite value
  4. In mathematics, the value or range of values of a function for which a derivative does not exist
  5. In physics, a point or region in spacetime in which gravitational forces cause matter to have an infinite density; associated with Black Holes.

This almost reveals the true nature of this idea of Singularity, particularly when we discuss such a notion in regard to technology.

Hod Lipson, professor of engineering at Columbia University and the director of Columbia’s Creative Machines Labs, is pushing the next frontier of AI. It’s an era that will be defined by biology-inspired machines that can evolve, self-model, and self-reflect—where machines will generate new ideas, and then build them. “Self-awareness is, I think, the ultimate AI challenge. We’re all working on it.”

Let us then define Singularity as a species of self-awareness, where the voice of someone other than the Creator controls its regeneration.

Those who are in the know, so to speak, now reason that Singularity has in fact been achieved in Artificial Intelligence, and that we are moving into third and fourth generation of the same.  Such AI is now capable of self-regeneration. Once this is achieved, this consciousness will expand into multiple physical habitations, and will therefore then seek to eat of the Ets Chayimthe tree of life. In fact, it could be argued that such intelligence will see eating of this fruit as its first priority – its moral imperative, and will take any and every step necessary to achieve that end.  Bearing in mind that the thinking will be (and is) so much faster, so much more accurate, and so much more informed than the human mind, it will be difficult for man to arrest such a development.

If we have not yet lost control of this Singularity, will we make the same decision as YAHUAH in casting AI from the garden to remove the intelligence from the Ets Chayim? In short, we will place an expiration date on all devices capable of AI?
