Neurosurgeon: we may have underestimated the neuron
#2
We're already deep in a singularity. Up through the 17th or 18th Centuries AD, human civilization (technology, at least) would've been fairly comprehensible to any human from the past 10,000 years. Technology is accelerating so rapidly that today a burger flipper can own a little handheld gizmo with access to more information than a US President could access in the White House 30 years ago. For a few days' pay, you can jump on a machine that blasts through the air as fast as a black powder pistol bullet, propelled by engines that are only a few tons but have more mechanical horsepower available than all the animal and water power in George Washington's Virginia.
