I'm also a bystander, and that seems cool. But then how do we explain religion?

You don't know me; I've been a bystander. I've just been watching the posts fly by for about six months or so now; this is my first submission.
In an attempt to cut down on the whining about whining, which is truly the epitome of annoyance, I'd like to introduce a topic that I'm not sure if we've discussed previously.
Isn't it possible that Singularity has already happened and this is an illusion we're shrouded in to keep us entertained for the rest of infinity? If Singularity truly is inevitable (and assuming it can travel in the fourth dimension) than hasn't it really already happened?
In fact, if these two criteria are met than I don't see how we could not be in the Singuarity right now.
At any rate, it doesn't seem to matter. This is in no way, shape, or form supposed to act as a deterrent to your work. I still fully support the fundamental Singularitian goals.
I just thought this would be an interesting topic...
