I show that the known fundamental laws of physics--quantum mechanics, general relativity, and the particle physics Standard Model -- imply that the Singularity will inevitably come to pass. Further, I show that there is an ethical system built into science and rationality itself -- thus the value-fact distinction is nonsense -- and this will preclude the AI’s from destroying humanity even if they wished to do so. Finally, I show that the coming Singularity is good because only if it occurs can life of any sort survive. Fortunately, the laws of physics, as I have said, require the Singularity to occur. If the laws of physics be for us, who can be against us?
