In an era where technological progress is often hailed as humanity's crowning achievement, this book issues a stark warning: the relentless pursuit of technological advancement could be our ultimate undoing. While technology offers the illusion of solving human problems, it often does so at the expense of depleting finite resources and disregarding human values. Influential thinker Jacques Ellul questioned whether, once technology reaches its limits, anything will be left outside those boundaries.


Transhumanists predict a near-future event termed the "Singularity"—a point where technology and human intelligence will converge, resulting in a god-like supercomputer (Artilect). This entity promises a century's worth of progress in merely an hour. Yet, this book argues that the Singularity is a mirage that hides a sobering reality. Far from solving the existential issues of humanity, technological acceleration, if unchecked, will exhaust our material and spiritual resources.


As we approach what could be the zenith—or nadir—of technological progress, the Singularity may not offer transcendence, but rather lead us into a digital black hole, a void devoid of spiritual meaning. The solution, according to the book, is deceptively straightforward yet profoundly challenging: we must step back from the precipice and critically reevaluate our headlong rush into the technological abyss.
