Product description


"There is little doubt that Gardner's ideas will change yours." --Seth Shostak

From the Back Cover

"Once again, Gardner takes on the biggest of themes--the function and future of the universe. Could it be that life, a humble bit of dirty chemistry on a tiny planet, is actually the `man behind the curtain,' pulling the levers that will actually guide the future of an entire cosmos? This book dares to tread on a landscape that few other writers have yet imagined. Provocative and prescient."
--Dr. Seth Shostak, senior astronomer, SETI Institute

"Jim Gardner is a man who thinks BIG! And it doesn't come any bigger than the universe itself. This profound meditation on the future of the universe and the central role intelligence plays in that drama will keep you enthralled with the possibility that we ARE the universe. Bon voyage on the intellectual journey of the year!"
--Dr. John Casti, Wissenschaftzentrum Wien and IIIAS, Vienna, Austria author of
Paradigms Lost and The Cambridge Quintet

"You may not agree with everything in this book, but I guarantee you will be challenged to rethink your basic assumptions about the universe, theology, and life itself. This beautifully written cosmic journey takes you to the outermost realm of current thinking about the universe and our place in it. It is a journey that will raise your cosmic consciousness, and it is a journey that humanity needs to undertake."
--Dr. Steven J. Dick, NASA chief historian, director, NASA History Division
