“Do you believe in the unknown? That humanity is poised on the threshold of a revolution, that everything is about to change and the Firmament will never be the same? Or do you just want to see what all the fuss is about? Whatever you believe, Nova Sirius isn’t some far-off fairy tale. It’s out there, and the Sirius Oracle is real. Is it a fancy computer or a silicon god? No one knows, and that’s what makes a trip to Nova Sirius so exciting.
Far from being reclusive, the Church of the Singularity welcomes pilgrims and religious tourists who maintain proper levels of decorum and respect. For a reasonable donation to the Church’s upkeep and maintenance fund, you could even stand in front of the Oracle - yes, THE Oracle - and ask it a question. We can’t guarantee it will answer you: but what we can guarantee is that the experience will be worth every credit!”
