Re: Does The Singularity Exist?

yeah,
1- the correctness of quantum theory is confirmed by many facts
2- quantum computing has been done very - very accurate
3- the technological singularity is no problem, because
thanks to quantum laws we have modern technology
4- it remains to understand what is still missing
