As I write we are moving towards the singularity. And we are moving along an exponentioal path to the singularity.
And we don't know what the singularity will be, only that it will be a surprise.
So the way to prepare for the singularity is to let go of our cognitive faculties for a while so that everything comes as a surprise.
But letting go of our cognitive faculties for a while induces overwhelming fear and so we cut ourselves off from surprise and so the singularity will take us by surprise, big time.
