We live in interesting times. The culmination of thousands of years of civilization has led us to a knife edge decision between utopia and extinction.

On the one hand, the world is in intractable, fractal crisis. Global warming, the oncoming invention of AGI, the lurking but still present threat of nuclear war. These things will probably destroy us in this century, it really is more likely than not.

On the other hand, we are now very close to what is commonly referred to as the singularity. The point where we will gain the capability to think and act so quickly that we invent virtually everything there is to invent in one sprint. There are several plausible avenues to that now in the next few decades. Genetic engineering, AGI, brain-computer-interfaces.

It is a race now, between whether we will first unlock that boundless spacefaring future or meet ruin and die on earth. Ultimately, this is the only thing that matters in this century, perhaps the only thing that matters in any century up to this point and forever after.

The outcome might be decided by a cosmic millimeter, mere hours or days or months.

You might lose everything to a blog post that seduced you on a soft rainy night.
