What do you think? And, are we in a period of crisis now? It was Ortega Y Gaset's opinion that his time period, (post Great War western civ ca. 1930's) was a crisis period, he did not offer any speculation as to when this period might end nor what would come after it?
Would the hypotethetical coming singularity (see www.extropy.org, Ray Kurzweil, K.Eric Drexler, Hans Moravec etc.) be the mother of all crises?
