It would be interesting to hear you have an extended conversation
with "Socrates" of "Singularity 1 on 1". Though Mr. Danaylov favors
(and clearly identifies himself with) the usual crowd of true
believers, he's nevertheless managed to have civil exchanges
with outright critics of >Hism (John Horgan, Noam Chomsky)
and even with SF authors who venture to doubt the >Hist
and Singularitarian orthodoxies -- e.g., Greg Bear.

Bear lays out his criticisms of contemporary >Hist orthodoxy (and the
basis of the "Singularity") starting at 54:07 (/1:33:40).
