    Listen boys....if you use your eyes and take 5 minutes to read the article you'd find that it talks about the exponential rate at which technology is growing....which in the next 20 years or so will lead to computer technology that surpasses human brain processing power. This is the point at which Nature and Technology merge into one singularity. Which in laymans (Read "Average 12ozprophet User") terms means,

    Okay that might happen, but I find it hard to believe that human's will create something that is smarter than itself.

    Isn't The Matrix about human's ability to use more of it's brain power a la Neo.

    word to the dude who started this thread, saying the matrix is going to "come true" really hurts the validity of your argument.

    but it was interesting nonetheless.

    I would agree with you on the point that not all things that are written about are true. However, when scientists in fields ranging from NASA to biotechnology to mathematics all speculate that it is possible for it to happen, I tend to lean towards it.

    Oh, and Mr. ABC, nice comeback.

    The matrix bit was meant as a joke, not a serious argument.
