Do you think we are approaching the Omega Point?
“The Omega point describes a maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which the universe appears to be evolving.”
“The society near the Omega Point would have unlimited computational resources available to them (i.e., finite at any given time, with additional resources continuously coming online).”
“as the universe comes to an end in a specific kind of Big Crunch, the computational capacity of the universe will be accelerating exponentially faster than time. In principle, a simulation run on this universal computer can thus continue forever in its own terms”
“even more than the increase of intelligence, the constant increase of ethics is essential for humankind to reach the Omega Point. The combination of intelligence and ethics and increasing creativity is the correct and proper goal of human life”
