Why Layers.cloud?

Is the Singularity inevitable?  
Will we be the last few generations of humans?  
How can we comprehend the vast change we are living through?  
What is reality and what is true?
How does the world work?
How do all of these questions and topics fit into themes of interest (energy, electricity, computing, cloud, bitcoin, and artificial intelligence)?


In 2020 (around the time of the pandemic) I became increasingly interested in (and concerned) about our rapidly changing world.  Although the book was published fifteen years earlier, I read Ray Kurzweil's book 'The Singularity is Near' and have since been down a rabbit hole.

Many of the writings on this page are a way to categorize and structure my thoughts, explore topics, and understand my interests.

My CV and more information about me can be seen here.

My writings and research led me to explore (and continue learning about) what I see as fundamental 'layers' of our world in a rough hierarchy like outlined in the image at the top of this page.

Bitcoin and the Lightning Network
