All the energies of our civilisation are destined to the construction of a new artifical world, a totally technological world in which the human being is one more cog in the cybernetic system. This world is totally exposed, programmed, quantified, technical, artificial, and, above all, autonomous.
This autonomous world will be able to function without us. This world is an objective world that will have neither subjectivity nor meaning. But while all our efforts are projected towards the horizon of technological singularity, the same language reminds us that there is another meaning of the word singularity. The Radical Singularity is an original project about human singularity in the era of technological singularity. The work addresses, in a unique, extreme, and even ironic way, the mutation from modern humanism to posmodern posthumanism, revealing the light of Reason between the lines. What is singular -along with human Reason- is the resistance to globalisation, to homogenisation, to the terror of the same, to automation, to technological singularity, and so on.
This work remind us that, even when things become so violently homogeneous, the radicalism of thought will appear. The world is dialectical, and we cannot escape the logic of the world, of which its representation is our Reason. Due to its radical singularity, human Reason always has the last word.
