Individually and collectively we are hurtling toward an evolutionary event horizon. The Singularity Archetype is a primordial image emerging from the collective unconscious that reveals key aspects of this event horizon.  Manifestations of the Singularity Archetype include dreams, motifs and themes found in art, science fiction and fantasy literature and films, religious cults, and the paranormal, especially near-death experiences and UFO encounters.

Key aspects of the Singularity Archetype include: “Logos Beheld” (visually comprehended linguistic intent often associated with a collective telepathic network), Homo gestalt (a new species where individuality is conserved but also telepathically networked), and a parallelism between the individual event horizon of death and eschaton (the collective event horizon of the species).

Apocalypticism is analyzed as an example of the Singularity Archetype pathologizing. A study of the Heaven’s Gate saucer/suicide cult illustrates what can happen when people become possessed by the Singularity Archetype and are driven by it into delusory projections.

The Singularity Archetype is viewed apocalyptically by the ego and as a transcendent evolutionary event by the Self; the duality of these views is explored in many examples. The evolutionary origins of the ego and its metamorphosis as it approaches the event horizon are explored.

Evolutionary theory, which relates to the Singularity Archetype through a number of dynamic paradoxes, is discussed. Many popular books and movies are analyzed as permutations of the Singularity Archetype, including: Avatar,Childhood’s End, Village of the Damned, Powder, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
