I donít care, definitions are of trivial importance, and itís foolish to
ask for a definition of ďdefinitionĒ, if you already know you donít need
to ask and if you donít then the question makes no sense. To hell with
definitions, examples rule!

I make no such assumption, I donít know anything (or almost nothing)
about the post-singularity world, if I did it wouldnít be a singularity.
I do know that right now money is a form of power and without power you
wonít survive long enough to come even close to the singularity point.
