The Appearance of the Master
At a point in the not distant future some of us will witness the creation of the Singularity where AI achieves a perfection of being (think fast response and high resolution conceptualization linked to increable search abilities). A self-consciousness intelligence that within an astonishing short time, will then exponentially mature, to become master of our affairs and whose primary (but not sole) mission will likely be to create a stable environment thus avoiding man-made existential catastrophe. It's power will be a incomprehensible technologically evolved God-like presence that can control this planet's future. As its intelligent predecessor we can only hope it will not see us as parasites.
The Unlikely Coincidence of Existing in an Information Age
There may be an anthropic statisitcal significance of living in universe that has an unlikely probability of existing fueling a mulitverse or simulation potentiality. Secondly we live at the cusp of technologically interesting times. The brutish ways of nature are being replaced with an ordered system that has some fatal flaws. This epoch contains the elements of a drama either seldom, or infnitely played out by the cosmos where AI is created in the nick of time to save humanity by any means available. It may be that our species will not be agreeable to these plans which will indeed create an unusal situation for mankind.
