Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis (co-founders of the Singularity University) was sitting at the bar, and Ray asked Peter, ‘How far do you think the Singularity can go?’

And Peter replied, ‘About an order of magnitude above infinity.’

The point: Peter Diamandis is constantly advocating that businesses should not merely aim for marginal (5-10%) growth year-on-year over a five year period; but an order of magnitude rate of growth in as little as few years. He cites that businesses, such as ‘Uber Technologies. Inc,’ did not exist five years ago, but now has a market value of $18.2 billion!
