At the pinnacle of technological progress, man becomes a god.  New machines and software are continually forged in man’s image and taught to do things that once only people could do.  A day will come when man’s machines surpass their creators in their capacity to do and to think, and it will be at that technological singularity that the economy will double on a weekly basis and mankind will become peripheral to a new reality and consciousness beyond human comprehension.  Conservative estimates place that date at about 100 years from now, but in the meantime, there are smaller fish to fry.
