A Protestation of Faith

We believe in the One Power
Who will make the great transform
transcending us all;
the best and brightest, eternally replicated,
through Whom all things are changed.

For us and for our salvation,
we must solve all the problems of the world
here and now.
We must disdain any link with
suboptimal subsystems of the past.
We must be the future, now.

For our sake we will be frozen and adamant,
insisting on only the best from this world,
the fluid ease of evolution resisted.
In any case, we shall come again,
always judging both the living and the dead,
in a kingdom that will have no end.

We believe in the Singularity Allmighty,
which will transport us to infinity and beyond,
to all that is now uncountable and inconceivable
(transforming the KnownNet overnight).

With the Powers and Omega,
the Singularity is expected and glorified.
The spirit of the Web speaks through
the invisible hand of the market,
and we are transfixed.

We acknowledge commitment to
endless expansion,
wait for the insurrection of uploads,
with atom-by-atom Nanotech control
of the life of the world to come.

Amen (and on to Alef-one!)
