years to reach current day, the intellectual journey was not gradual in a linear sense. If one was to plot significant events occurring throughout human existence, Mankind’s ability to construct new ideas follows a logarithmic path, and is rapidly approaching an asymptote, or technological singularity. This singularity event has scientists both supporting and rejecting the concept of an imaginative plateau; the largest topic discussed is Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). When this technological singularity is reached, it is hypothesized that man’s greatest creation, an artificial sapient being, will supersede human brain capacity. According to some, this event will lead to the extermination of mankind as humans are deemed obsolete. The theory of replacement creates the most controversy. It contends that AI’s will eventually surpass our capabilities and that we will in effect lose the capacity to control them for our purposes. So the question arises, do AI systems know of their existence? As systems advance, they will develop their own sense of self and unique wants and needs that do not necessarily coincide with our own. This evolutionary theory predicts intelligent machines evolve to a stage in which they will surpass man in all his abilities. Once that threshold occurs, the machines will see no benefit from the human race and will cause the disappearance of all humans. More and more people
