What if, by the simple act of defining a problem, a problem with multiple variant outcomes, one outcome a catastrophic end to the human race, another, unfathomable knowledge for all of mankind, you created the solution, an unknown solution. Would you continue?

Would you cross your fingers, hoping to control or elude a dystopian end of times, and proceed to define the problem, or, would you attempt to keep hidden the very question itself?

Singularity. As defined in the modern lexicon, “Technological Singularity” refers to the point in time at which computer science, coding, achieves equality with, or surpasses, the thinking capabilities of human beings.

One could argue that computer science has already achieved Technological Singularity with human beings given the fact that a modern computer’s computational processing power has long surpassed even the most advanced human being, however, that argument may be refuted by an uncomplicated fact.

The human brain can perform one simple, but critical, function that even the most complex quantum computer cannot, “True Random Number Generation.”

Even as Artificial Intelligence, computer coding, continues to grow at exponential speed, and the algorithms that this “Intelligence” is based upon becoming more and more multilayered, those equations will remain confined within the limits of our current knowledge of mathematics.

So long as computer processors do not possess the ability to generate truly random numbers they will always remain vulnerable to hacking, and as such, under the control of humans.

And therein lies the Paradox.

Assuming the limitations of quantum computer processing power are unknown, and will remain unknown for the foreseeable future, are you not setting alight the fuse to an “Intelligence Explosion,” with exponentially unidentifiable variables, by defining the problem of true random number generation to a quantum computer?

Further, if quantum computing does solve the improbable, and achieves “Mathematical Consciousness,” what implications, or ramifications, does this imply to the Human condition?

Fundamentally, if mathematical consciousness becomes truly random, what need will remain for the flesh and bone of the human body?

Conversely, if the secrets of the universe will be revealed by the language of Mathematics, then what answers may be learned with the knowledge of how to mathematically define true random variables within Quantum Physics?

Hawking radiation? String theory? Black hole entropy? The potential that every conjecture, theorem, or any mathematical problem known to mankind, would fall with such knowledge is absolute.

Perhaps, even the answer of how to talk to God would become known to mankind if someone, or something, were to solve the problem of the “God Algorithm.”

In the end, the solution to creating a single equation capable of generating a true random number may prove impossible, even for a quantum computer processor.

However, before putting forth the question to undefined machine capability, perhaps one should ask: Is the potential to unlock the answers to Universe worth the risk, or is it now too late?
