Thank you for asking this question. People in this subreddit see the Singularity as a method for escaping and abandoning reality. I've literally had people say they'll give up learning how to have relationships with real people in favor of creating AIs that accommodate their shortcomings.

The Singularity is going to bring waves upon waves of infantalized doofuses.

The word itself best colors what it is. The singularity is a point past which we know nothing about. A point where such immense potential for rapid change is possible, that what exactly happens will depend on a butterfly's wings.

The ramp up to the point though, where we commodify near-agi agents, will likely create many infantilized doofuses as you put it.
