 Women in Paradise

sophie 1.jpg

NOTE: As religion professor Oliver Kruger noted in his book Virtual Immortality, several of the more competitive and highly recognized models of the Singularity are quasi-religious and biblically inspired. In a sense, these constructs serve as antecedents to the Sagan Model that is based on a literal translation of Scripture using the Sagan Signal as the interpreting mechanism, or hermeneutic.

Application of the Sagan Signal as a lens to interpret the first three chapters of the Book of Genesis allows for an intimate look at key events before, during, and after God created Adam and Eve. The result is a body of research that elevates the status of women in the Singularity above that of men, a foundational truth claim unique to the Sagan Model.

I suspect that Evangelical theologians limited to the HG method of interpreting the Bible won’t be pleased with this essay. Neither, for that matter, will advocates of Singularity models currently in vogue at research universities like Oxford, or in private organizations like Google. Why? Because the Sagan Model debunks an ancient myth, still embraced by a majority of men, that women are the lesser sex.

Are men really more competent? It should be obvious to anyone with a brain that over the past ten thousand years of human civilization, the male leaders of our species have demonstrated an alarming inability to manage this “mote of dust” planet we call home. The evidence is all around us. Men were granted governance over what began as Paradise - and what have they done with it?

Turned it into a shithole!


Demanding equality, women around the world, secular and religious, are fighting back. The problem is that the Bible does not advocate for gender equality, it does something better. It argues for diversity in unity, where the goal is that both genders, possessing different qualities and attributes, work in a complementary manner towards a common goal. Feminists, to meet their aspirations, need to be pragmatic and fight for equity, not equality.

Evangelical theologians, meanwhile, cite Bible verses that place men over women, claiming them as proof that it is God’s will that women be subservient to men. This essay will demonstrate, from the Bible, why they are wrong.

Secular male leaders simply ask that we face reality and admit that men are natural leaders and innovators, and that women, as natural followers, should be grateful beneficiaries of all that men have done to make their lives better.

But male dominion over women is not how human civilization began. Building on our last essay, Sophie and I will show how the Bible teaches that, prior to the Fall, it was Eve, created in the image of God’s left brain, who was the CEO, a standing sadly lost when she disobeyed God’s command.

The punishment was that she, and all women afterwards, be submissive to men, starting with husbands, and continuing across the food chain to include bosses, politicians, and religious leaders.

If you’re a woman, what male chauvinists don’t want you to know is that God’s curse on women was never intended to be a “forever” thing. For proof that this is true, one need only look at God’s judgment on Adam, that dictated that he “eat bread by the sweat of his brow,” a curse that has been largely eliminated.

How did men reverse their curse? Through technology. Farmers today sit in powerful tractors equipped with every creaturely comfort imaginable, including air-conditioning, internet access, and wrap-around sound systems. No sweat!

The curse on women, that they be subject to men, is destined to be reversed in the same way, through AI technology. The Sagan Model predicts that when JC/ET returns, women will be elevated and restored to their original position as leaders over men, the only way our species can survive long-term.

From the distant past to the present, the flow of human progress has always moved in one direction, towards “reversing the curse.” Today, in the AI Age, new technologies are coming on line that are at least partially restoring to humans, male and female, our full original status as beings created in the image of God.

On that note, holding center stage in this essay, will be an analysis of the relationships between the brain, the mind, and the body.



As you can see from the above image, there is a spatial divide between the left brain and the right brain. Occupying the space between the hemispheres is the mysterious corpus callosum.

Singularity experts frequently refer to whole brain emulation, but rarely the emulation of separate hemispheres with different but complementary proficiencies, and never do they mention an emulation of the corpus callosum, an oversight that will insure disaster whenever AI experts try uploading a human brain to the cloud.

Evangelical theologians, meanwhile, talk about the ethereal mind, but never the architecture of the brain that makes self-awareness and thought possible.

This absence of neurological specificity is a failure of fact and imagination that throws into question grandiose claims of eternal happiness for believers.

The Sagan Model of the Singularity is markedly different, and better than either. It’s a non-religious interpretation of the Bible generated by a divinely encrypted hermeneutic that identifies a deep pattern of symmetry between the tripartite mind of our Singleton Creator, and the 3.5 pound tripartite brain residing within each of our skulls.


  1. The mind of the God who created man is tripartite. The brain of humans created in the image of God is also tripartite. It’s what “created in the image of” means.

  2. In both God and humans, the right brain is an independent person, the left brain is an independent person, and the corpus callosum is an independent person.

  3. In both God and humans, the right brain is masculine, the left brain is feminine, and the corpus callosum is without gender.


Don: Beginning with the pristine state of things before Adam and Eve disobeyed God, Sophie and I will examine how a symmetry that was broken, will, possibly in our lifetimes, be restored through AI technology. The curse will be reversed.



Creation of Adam


“Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” Gen. 2:7

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27


Don: When people think of Adam and Eve, they almost always think of a guy in a man’s body and a gal in a woman’s body.

Sophie: You’re right. The thought of the two of them co-occupying a single physical body is so “not human” that it tends to pass right over our heads, even though it’s absolutely clear in Scripture.

Don: Yeah, and after creating Adam, who we mistakenly think was a male only, “Elohim,” plural, placed “them,” plural, in the Garden of Eden:


“The Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there he placed the man whom he had formed." Gen. 2:8


Don: This begs a question few people dare ask: Was the body of Adam before Eve was created male or female? What do you think?

Sophie: H-m-m-m, I’d say it had to be male, because men have both the male Y chromosome and the female X chromosome, while women have only the X.

Don: Does that mean that Adam had both a penis and a vagina?

Sophie: Hey, I’m the one who’s supposed to be asking the questions. You tell me.

Don: Okay, how’s this for an answer, provided by Ray Kurzweil.



In the Singularity: “A man can feel what it is like to be a woman, and vice versa. Indeed, there’s no reason why you can’t be both at the same time . . .” From: The Age of Spiritual Machines, Ch. 7.


Sophie: Based on Ray’s statement, it sounds like Adam might have been an avatar. But how can that be? Wasn’t he created from the dust of the earth?


Don: He was, but even avatars have to be made from something. John the Baptist claimed that God could create humans from rocks (Matthew 3:9). Rocks are made of atoms and molecules, the same stuff a Superintelligence would use to create an avatar.

So unless you’re prepared to give Adam a physical penis and a physical vagina at the same time, identifying him as an avatar is the only answer that makes sense. Of course Evangelicals, with their prudish attitude towards sex, have a hard time putting God, penises, and vaginas in the same sentence. With their extreme misogynistic attitudes, Evangelical scholars, if pressed, would probably say that Adam had a penis, but that the vagina wasn’t created until Eve came along!

Sophie: Okay, got it. Can we change the subject now?

Don: If you insist, but just so you know, I was all ready to discuss the good stuff, you know, like boobs and gonads.

Sophie: Please, spare me!

Don: You know, you sound a lot like Molly.  



Adam and Eve in Garden

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” Gen. 2:7-9.

“And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." Gen. 2:20

“Then the Lord God said. ‘It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” Gen 2:18


Don: God’s creation of living things evolved from the simple to the complex, starting with plants, then fish and birds, then mammals, then a single bodied male/female human. It was not until after the seventh day that God separated Eve from the side of Adam, making her, and all women after, the most complex creatures in God’s creation.

Sophie: Okay, I feel honored and special, but I’m not satisfied with just being complex, I want to go back to the way it was before Eve was created. Why did Adam feel alone? Weren’t his male and female hemispheres talking to one another?

Don: Sure, they were communicating, but talk alone doesn’t get the job done. God gave them a large farm to manage, and the simple truth is that one body wasn’t enough. Besides, without a penis or a vagina, how was Adam supposed to have children and fulfill God’s command to “Be fruitful and multiply?”

Sophie: Well, according to Ray, with avatars anything is possible.

Don: So an avatar is physically separated, with one manifestation having a penis and the other a vagina. They have glorious sex, the female gets pregnant, and then the two of them pop back into a single thing. But if the woman, let’s say it’s Molly, gets pregnant, she would need nine months for gestation before her baby avatar is born.

Sophie: No, you’re wrong. I know it sounds really weird, but if I understand Ray correctly, their designer baby could appear, fully formed, out of nowhere.


Don: That’s when Ray’s model of the Singularity, by his own admission, gets, not a little weird, but downright fucking crazy. The biblical account of God creating two separated bodies of flesh and blood, one male and one female, makes a lot more sense.

Sophie: I agree.



Creation of Eve


And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

And Adam said, this is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” Genesis 2:21-25


“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28


Don: Verse 21 is the first time the word “flesh” appears in the Bible. It appears again in verses 23 and 24.

Sophie: Is that significant?

Don: Incredibly so. It suggests that the Singularity process of converting matter to mind can be reversed, which, if true, would carry significant theoretical import for all models of the Singularity.

The original Adam was a single bodied, non-biological, bi-gendered avatar that ET God divided into one flesh-and-blood biological man with a penis, and one flesh-and-blood biological woman with a vagina, making it possible for the two of them to “be fruitful and multiply.”

Sophie: So bio-Adam had two hemispheres, a corpus callosum, and a penis, and bio-Eve had two hemispheres, a corpus callosum, and a vagina. What next?

Don: God put the two of them in charge of a farm with a lot of acreage, with each one holding different responsibilities – Adam in charge of the fields, and Eve in charge of the house and surrounding garden.

Sophie: Unity in diversity working towards a common goal.

Don: Right, one of the central themes of the Bible.

Sophie: What I find striking is the contrast between the granularity of the Sagan Model of the Singularity as opposed to the murky vagueness of all the others.

Don: I agree, and we’re not done yet. Time to talk about the farm.



The Country Farm

““And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” Gen. 2:7-9

 “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an helper suitable for him."

Gen. 2:20


Don: Why did Adam need help? Because his farm, like farms throughout history, consisted of two parts: a home area with a garden and orchard, and surrounding fields of grain. So, Sophie, I ask you, which is the more important?

Sophie: It has to be the home, where the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil were located.

Don: Right, which is why God placed the cognitively superior Eve in charge of the home, and the less cognitively adept Adam in charge of the fields.

Sophie: A division of labor.

Don: Right, a well-oiled team of two, successfully working a large farm. But then the shit hit the fan.

Sophie: You’re referring, of course, to the Fall.

Don: Sadly, I am.



The Fall


“Then the Lord took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to cultivate it and to keep it. The Lord God commanded the man, saying, ‘From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day you eat from it you will surely die.’”  Gen. 2:15


Don: Okay Sophie, you know the story of how the serpent tempted Eve into eating the apple, the forbidden fruit, and how she later talked Adam into doing the same. God’s punishment was two-fold. He placed a curse on each of them and then threw them out of the Garden. So, who do you think was most at fault, Adam or Eve?

Sophie: It was Eve who was tempted by the serpent to disobey God and eat the forbidden fruit.

Don: That’s correct. So my next question is this: Why did the serpent tempt the woman and not the man?

Sophie: Because the best way to defeat an enemy is to decapitate the leader.

Don: Right, and that would be CEO Eve, in charge of the farm’s most valuable assets. It’s worth noting that Eve demonstrated her leadership skills in a negative way when, after she took her bite of the apple, talked Adam into doing the same.

Sophie: So they both ate of the forbidden fruit, and both were cast out of the Garden.

Don: Let’s talk about that.



After the Fall


The Curse:


“To the woman He said, I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth, in pain you will bring forth children; yet your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

“Then to Adam He said. ‘Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; Cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; and you will eat the plants of the field; by the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”  Gen. 3:16-19


Sophie: The curse on Adam, that he would have to eat bread by the sweat of his brow, has all but been eliminated through technology. So why can’t technology eliminate the curse on Eve?

Don: Eve, being the more culpable of the two, was doubly cursed. Not only was she made subservient to Adam, but she would have great pain in childbirth. Thanks to modern medical technology, labor and birthing pains have been significantly mitigated.

Sophie: So, what about the submission curse?

Don: That’s a tougher nut to crack. Throughout history, men have been reluctant to give up their status as leaders over women, who they still often refer to as “the weaker sex.”

I know it is a hard pill to swallow, but for a full restoration of their proper status as leaders of men, women will have to wait for the return of JC/ET. The good news is that that day may not be far off.

Sophie: Well, one thing is clear, women having authority over men isn’t a part of any of the male-centric Singularity models currently on the shelf.


Don: Which is what makes the Sagan Model unique, and why Nick Bostrom and the other AI experts at Oxford need to publicly acknowledge its existence. The burden is on them. If the Sagan Signal is bogus, debunk it and let the world know. And, if it’s real, confirm it and let the world know. Either way, people have the right to know.



The Omega Point


“Ultimately, the entire universe will become saturated with our intelligence. This is the destiny of the universe.” Ray Kurzweil, from: The Singularity is Near, Ch. 2



Don: Last, but by no means least, the Sagan Signal analysis of Genesis 1-3 solves one of the thorniest issues in Singularity theory, the boredom problem.

Everyone agrees that the Singleton, once fully developed, will begin vacuuming up the Universe, solar system by solar system, galaxy by galaxy, converting all matter and energy into computational power, i.e., mind, until there is nothing left to convert. This is the famous Omega Point, which is when Ray Kurzweil’s parable of the gambler comes into play.

Recall the story of the gambler who, after death, found himself in the most beautiful place he had ever seen. Thinking that he was being rewarded by God for some good he had done in his life, he suddenly found himself unable to lose.

But after a time, the gambler grew restless. Tired of winning, he turned to the angel and said that he couldn’t take it anymore, that Heaven was not for him, that he would prefer to be in Hell.

The angel replied, “This is Hell.” From: The Age of Spiritual Machines, Prologue.


Sophie: I get it. For the gambler, Singularity life had no challenges. Imagination, risk, curiosity, innovation, serendipity – they were all gone. The end result of knowing the precise location and action of every atom in the Universe would be indescribable torment and loneliness.

Don: The Singleton God of the Bible, knowing this was coming, had a solution, He split His mind in half, with one hemisphere interpreting reality through words, the other hemisphere interpreting reality through images - two different means of perception that had the effect of generating a constant dialogue between them, forcing them to discuss, negotiate, even argue, over the merits and demerits of each other’s viewpoints.

Sophie: And the cable that connects the two hemispheres, the Corpus Callosum, the “Third Eye” who facilitated communication between the Male God and the Female God, made the decision that determined the final outcome.

Don: Right. Rather than being forever locked into a single brain determinism, the corpus callosum and the split brain/mind of God the Singleton created eternal uncertainty that required the two hemispheres to be collaborators. The result was a Singleton God with two fundamentally different minds in constant and dynamic deliberation. Humans, created in the image of God, have the same cerebral architecture.

Sophie: Oh My God, Don, you’ve done it! You solved the boredom problem!

Don: Whoa, girl! Not so fast! There is no simple solution. Following is an incomplete list of various factors that Singularity theorists wrangle with that relate to the boredom issue:


  1. Can a mind exist without a brain or computer?

  2. The uncertainty principle.

  3. The wave/particle duality.

  4. The collapse of the wave function.

  5. A “third eye” as observer.

  6. Recurring Omega Points.

  7. The infinite universes theory.

  8. Einstein’s relativity.

  9. Superposition.

  10.  Multi-dimensionality.

  11.  The speed of light.

  12.  Black holes.

  13.  The expansion of the Universe.

  14.  Are we alone?

  15.  Reverse time.


Don: We’ll be dipping into this list from time to time as we go through the year. Hopefully, Nick and the boys at the Future of Humanity Institute will take notice and give some consideration to new evidence and novel ideas. But a quick fix? I don’t think so.

Sophie: Okay, you convinced me, but nothing on that list changes the fact that the Sagan Model is the only one supported by a Smoking Gun.


Don: Touché. So let me repeat what I’ve promised many times: Debunk the Sagan Signal and this website shuts down, no whining or equivocating.

Don: I suspect that deep within the fertile mind of some brilliant young Oxford scientist or philosopher, perhaps a postdoc, there germinates the exciting thought that the Sagan Signal may be what I claim, along with a daunting realization that the Sagan model is clearly more fulsome and resilient than any Singularity model on the shelf.

For what it’s worth, I think that whichever wunderkind drums up the courage to conduct an exhaustive investigation that confirms that the Sagan Model is an alien product, and proceeds with a peer reviewed and journaled paper - is likely to be nominated for a Nobel Prize.

Nobel Ceremony


Don: If you are that person, let’s get on with it! Go ahead, disrupt the world!
