ABSTRACT: A Jungian collective developmental approach to the issue of subject/object dynamics is adopted arguing that in general humanity has progressed from unconscious participation mystique to differentiated ego consciousness: i.e. to the subject-object split. The latter occured with the advent of the scientific revolution. From then until the present-day the general collective has experienced differentiation from the world but this has been accompanied with ego anxiety. Therefore science has been (and still is)regarded as not necessarily at the service of human psychological health as it negates religiosity and replaces it with nothing. However, the Singularity - as articulated by Ray Kurzweil - heralds a time of extraordinary and exponential technological growth which will certainly include medical science within its domain. Indeed technology will be everywhere including within our bodies. As technology extends our reach we progress from differentiated anxious ego's to a larger 'Self'. This completes the Jungian developmental approach, albeit the 'Self' expressed here is the 'Singularitarian Self' - as it is technology that completes the human being.
