Singularity and its skeptics, in haiku

Jill from Tachyon Books sez, "Is the Rapture of the Nerds just around the corner? Or is the Vingean posthuman technological Singularity the biggest myth since Y2K? You know—and you can prove it in verse. Post or email ( Tachyon a haiku that is either pro- (it's totally gonna happen) or con- (as if!) Singularity. There will be two winners, one for each argument. In addition to getting a signed copy of Digital Rapture: The Singularity Anthology, attendees at Chicon 7, the World Science Fiction Convention, will be treated to A FREE LUNCH with James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel."


    1. Once an ancient art
      practiced by the Japanese,
      now just geeky jokes.

      …I notice all the haikus here and not there, so on topic:

      A new myth for those
      who don’t see god in our past
      so search our future.

      1. Oo! I like that one. Here’s my actual entry:

        Recedes as we approach it
        Like the horizon

        (No singularity)
