One World Synergy

The law of accelerating returns at work. We often tend to project future technology out from a linear perspective, while the reality is exponential. That is why halfway through mapping the human genome, just 1% was mapped, but that was right on time for the law of accelerating returns. In fact, to the shock of early critics that proclaimed it would take hundreds of years, it not only finished on schedule (14 years), but ahead of schedule!More from Ray Kurzweil on exponential technology and solar power: http://bigthink.com/think-tank/ray-kurzweil-solar-will-power-the-world-in-16-years (May 17, 2011)And a recent article on Kurzweil’s prediction: http://singularityhub.com/2012/09/24/surging-solar-in-2011-proof-of-ray-kurzweils-bold-prediction/ (Sept. 24, 2012)
