really liked it
Read in March, 2004

An intriguing look into one possible future for our species. Though the title might be ironic, I think it contains multiple layers: Intelligence becomes its own force for evolution, transforming from out of the natural world into something new but different; but doesn't intelligence arise from natural beings? I recommend this book with only minor hesitation, because it feels a bit cold or distant. Perhaps that's the best tone, though.

A must-read on posthuman or transhuman reading lists.
