Singularity

Books about the theorized technological singularity.
The technological singularity is a theoretical future point that takes place during a period of unprecedented technological progress sometime after the creation of a Superintelligence.
This bookshelf contains both fiction and non-fiction, some dealing directly with the topic, some indirectly.

Note: There is also a Goodreads group by the same title. The bookshelf in that group is not the same as this list, although the two should be largely congruent.

(See wikipedia for more information on the topic and many other links.)

Eric Metaxas
If we can accept a single singularity of the Big Bang, on what basis can we reasonably claim no other such singularities are possible?
Eric Metaxas, Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life

What is the Imago Dei, the Image of God? It’s a hive. God is the total hive, and we are all the hive cells. We are all mind bees, buzzing in our Singularity.
Thomas Stark, Base Reality: Ultimate Existence
