    An 86% success rate ratio is damn impressive. Very interesting video thanks

    I’ve followed Kurzweil for some time and agree with most of his predictions. That said, the percent of the world population that fit into his future seems to me to be a minority of the 9 billion to come. What effect will those not participating have. Already, today we can see strong backlash to rational developments in western politics; just look at the US for example.
