‘Hello, and welcome to Life.
We regret to inform you that your previous existence ended on January 14, 2052…’

We found an interesting, albeit slightly off-putting, video snippet via “Upworthy” this morning. CJ having had only one cup of her morning coffee down, snapped to life as though she’d drunk the entire pot upon conclusion of the clip.

Previous existence? Ended, ahhh, but no worries, friend! Look here, we have a backup copy on the cloud, all one needs now is to decide on which plan to go with…we’ll have you up and running in a few moments. Just like plug-and-play software, like a system restore…accept the term and conditions and you’ll be all set…holy hard drives, Batman!

WHAT!?

She rushed off to find out more about this proposed concept of  ‘the singularity.’

I however, am a mouse, and I rushed off to sneak something to nibble on before she got back…

CJ returned with a Wiki snippet explaining the odd concept:

The technological singularity, or simply the singularity, is a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature.[1] Since the capabilities of such an intelligence may be difficult for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is often seen as an occurrence (akin to a gravitational singularity) beyond which the future course of human history is unpredictable or even unfathomable.

Does that mean mice, too?

I hope not, for my own sake. One lifetime is quite enough, thanks. I plan to live my simple life out, with care and hopefully, some purpose, and then when it’s time: to do as all living organisms must do…return to the earth. BUT, not anytime soon, mind you…humans are fixated, it seems, on their hopeful immortality and eternal youth. Mice aren’t. Hey, but the humans sure are quick to snatch a mouse up and inject it full of anti-aging youth juice!

Thankfully I only have one or two clear and present dangers to be wary of: Chester the Cat and those guillotines out in the front parlor. CJ is tasked with keeping Mr. B assured that the house is mouse-free.  cropped-mousecringe.jpg

Fellow blogger, even if a little out there and edgy with some of his observations,  RobPop at http://humansareweird.com, may have it right indeed:

Humans Are Weird. Blavatar

C J  would be 88 years old when the so-called super-artificial intelligence age kicks in. As long as she continues to suck on those cancer sticks, though, I wouldn’t bet on it!

So weird they’ll do anything to get around that idea that they should have to wither up and die at some point? Weird- scared. Weird-death-phobic.  We aren’t sure.

A guy named Tom Scott created this video and has a channel over on You Tube — http://tomscott.com – Or: what you see when you die.

We want to know how you feel about it after you see this!

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
