The Singularity

Loading Module: Singularity |=======|100%

The term singularity was coined in the 20th century by various scientists. A Singularity used to be defined as an event, where an intelligence much greater than that of humanity is created (either through machines, or through enhancing human intelligence), and therefore that intelligence is then capable of creating even smarter intelligences and so on. This creates an event where technological process would grow so rapidly that humanity would no longer be able to control progress in the universe. The dangers of the singularity are that with such a rapidly evolving intelligence in the universe, humanity would no longer be able to control it’s own “Destiny” as a much smarter intelligence now is in control. It is also predicted that in the event of a singularity, the entire human race would most likely be destroyed as they would only be in the way.

The singularity is considered to be a negative event by the general public, and that is why the Department of Technological Enforcement was created, and Act #001 was passed (outlawing artificial intelligences). The DTE’s main job is to prevent technological singularities, but closely governing and enforcing strict regulations on technological advancement. Over the years, the Singularity became revered to as the “True Singularity”, as many other events called “Micro Singularities” began to occur.

Micro Singularities are events in which a technological intelligence is contained within a closed system, but still has a rapid technological development. The DTE has wave pattern scanners and many other safety mechanisms in place to discover Micro Singularities when they occur. Usually the procedure is to recondition the Person or Persons responsible, and then the destruction of the singularity. This is not an easy task, as the DTE often faces incredibly technologies or intelligences standing in their way, though more often than not, the DTE prevents micro singularities before they ever occur.

<\THE TRUE SINGULARITY WILL BE THE END OF ALL HUMAN LIFE. DO NOT JOKE AROUND, NOR THINK THAT YOUR INVENTION IS SPECIAL. WE ARE WATCHING, WE WILL REMAIN VIGILANT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE HUMAN RACE!\>
