 Can technical analysis be called a self-fulfilling prophecy?
Those who do see technical analysis as a self-fulfilling prophecy argue that these indicators are "right" only because extremely large numbers of people base trading decisions on these same indicators, thereby using the same information to take their positions, and, in turn, pushing the price in the direction predicted by the indicators.
A self-fulfilling prophecy is an event that is caused only by the preceding prediction or expectation that it was going to occur.
The reason there is a question over whether technical analysis is a self-fulfilling prophesy is that its tools - such as support and resistance, trendlines, major daily moving averages and other types of indicators - do seem to have predictive qualities.

 Why Work Toward the Singularity?
The Singularity is something that we can actually go out and do, not a philosophical way of describing something that inevitably happens to humanity.
It takes the sweep of human progress and a whole technological economy to create the potential for the Singularity, just as it takes the entire framework of science to create the potential for a cancer cure, but it also takes a deliberate effort to run the last mile and fulfill that potential.
In that sense, sparking the Singularity is no different from any other grand challenge - someone has to do it.
