The Singularity and the Raelian Messages
Refuting Arthur C.
Refuting Arthur C. Clarke:
Maitreya Rael accurately forecast the future – decades ago!
“All attempts to predict the future in any detail appear ludicrous within a few years.” (Esteemed scientist and science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, writing in the 1983 introduction to his updated edition of “Profiles of the Future,” first published in 1962)
Sir Arthur got an amazing number of things right in his very long lifetime (he died last year at the age of 90), but he got this wrong. In the early 1970s, someone did accurately predict – in considerable detail – the future we’re living right now.
That someone was Rael. And he didn’t only forecast the wonders we’ve been enjoying for the last dozen years or so. He also described – again in considerable detail – the even more amazing marvels yet to come, as humanity approaches the time of Singularity around 2025 to 2035.
(If you don’t know what the Singularity is, check out Ray Kurzweil’s “The Singularity is Near,” published in 2005. Kurzweil, described by Bill Gates as “the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence,” also maintains an excellent Web site, www.KurzweilAI.net
, where he posts updated information on all the latest technological developments. Visit that site and you’ll find yourself reading reports about the very things Rael predicted more than 30 years ago!
So what developments did Rael predict that Arthur C. Clarke didn’t? Here’s just one example (the underlining is mine):
“A very long time ago on our distant planet, we had reached a level of technical and scientific knowledge, comparable to that which you will soon reach. Our scientists had started to create primitive, embryonic forms of li fe, namely living cells in test tubes.” (Source: Yahweh, speaking to Rael in Chapter 2, “The Truth,” of Book One, The Book Which Tells the Truth,” in “Intelligent Design, p. 10.)
If you’re a regular reader of Rael Science, or if you otherwise keep up with the latest scientific developments, you know humanity is already on the cusp of this milestone achievement. In 2009, it is no longer a prediction but an emerging reality.
The list of Rael’s accurate predictions goes on and on…and nobody else, including Arthur C. Clarke himself, foresaw these developments so accurately – or so early. I have recently reread “Profiles of the Future,” and I noted that even when Clarke updated the book in the early 1980s, he got a lot of things wrong. (Read the book and you’ll see what I mean.)
Rael got everything right.
The wonders he described in detail more than three decades ago are now the hot news of today’s leading science journals. While a few other writers managed to glean part of the truth on their own, interpreting humanity’s past in terms of extraterrestrial beings mistaken for gods, only Rael could confidently describe the future we’re living right now. And he didn’t get a single thing wrong. In fact, everything he wrote was spot on!
Rael got everything right because he had the help of the Elohim, our extraterrestrial creators. Just as he explained, they have been monitoring humanity’s progress and are completely familiar with the various stages of scientific development. Having passed through those stages themselves, and having created life elsewhere, they were able to give their messenger accurate depictions of t he wonders Earth scientists were about to achieve.
Those wonders include sentient robots that will tirelessly perform all tedious work worldwide, plus replicators that will produce all desired objects (including food) using only basic elements. It will be an age of unlimited abundance, thanks to science. Scarce resources will be a thing of the past.
Freed from the tyranny of work, people will also enjoy vastly extended, disease-free lives thanks to cloning and other genetic techniques, plus nanotechnology and the fusion of human biology with robotics. This will be the era of superintelligence, when people merge with machines.
Money will be obsolete in such a world, since there will be no need to motivate people to wo rk. And we will no longer need to conserve natural resources, since everything will be available for free and in unlimited quantities through replicators.
All this Rael described way back in the mid 1970s, when such ideas seemed more like imaginative science fiction.
Many people laughed back then. Even today, when all that Rael has written is proven daily on the science pages, some people are wallowing in confusion, bombarded by conflicting information.
I urge those plagued with such doubts to first read (or reread) Rael’s “Intelligent Design,” a compilation edition of the three books he wrote in the early 1970s, and simultaneously read Kurzweil’s “The Singularity is Near,”published in 2005. Go back and forth between these two books and be prepared to be astounded. Rael accurately predicted everything Kurzweil – one of the leading scientists of our age – is verifying today.
In a nutshell, the exponential explosion of scientific knowledge forecast in Rael’s early works has already begun, and it will soon transform the world in exactly the ways he described. The knowledge explosion will soon culminate in the Singularity, “a time when all things will be understood.” (This definition is taken directly from Rael’s “Intelligent Design.”)
With many experts forecasting that the Singularity will occur within the next 25 years, it’s surely no coincidence that the Elohim hope to return at that time. Just remember that they will only return if enough wise people on Earth are following their messenger, Rael, and wish to welcome them back!
