"Again, how do you prepare for the unknown (or even unknowable)? I think most
people would get very scared when faced with the unknown. The most likely
reactions is IMO either apathy or panic."
Back in some of Eliezer's writings he recommends if you can't contribute money or programming to learn to program a computer. In my opinion the best way for the regular joe prepare for the Singularity is to read about science and emerging technology such as physics, QM, relativity, cosmology, string theory, quantum gravity, M theory, super symmetry, chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, genetic engineering, molecular engineering, nanotechnology, and the Singularity. You will have a better chance of understanding what is going to happen if you have some understanding of what is going on now.
