I have created and published the following pages, of interest to all
humans on the planet Earth (in my humble opinion), and particularly
anyone who's ever heard the phrase "Transhuman" or "Singularity"

Staring Into The Singularity
Attempts to forcibly drive home the utter incomprehensibility of beings
smarter than human. Explains the futility of discussing Life After
Singularity. Includes the Interim Meaning Of Life: "Get to the
Singularity as fast as possible!"

Algernon's Law
Algernon's Law: Any simple enhancement of the human mind is a net
evolutionary disadvantage.
A practical guide to enhancing human intelligence using current
technology. Includes a step-by-step guide to producing an Algernon
tailored for creative design and causal analysis, and the *results*.
