In the middle two hours, former Executive Editor of Wired Magazine, Kevin Kelly and science writer Jim Gardner discussed how technology functions as a living part of the universe, and is evolving in ways that are almost biological. An ecosystem of technologies, which Kelly referred to as the "technium," could be thought of as a kind of super organism that is an extension of the evolutionary process, he explained.

"Intelligence is the architect of the universe," said James Gardner (biocosm.org), a complexity theorist who appeared on Wednesday's program. The author of the newly published book Biocosm, Gardner asserted that an "intelligent universe can be its own mother," and that "the future can in effect create its own past." We're part of a life cycle that began with a hyper intelligent entity which "evolved from creatures like us," he explained, likening his theory to Darwinism as applied to the Cosmos. Such an entity could be conceived of as "an incredibly condensed point of matter and energy," capable of triggering a big bang, he said. Accordingly, humans are not the end product of evolution but part of a larger function, serving like the mitochondria in cells, he said. Gardner laid out the case for the "Creator" being intelligence itself, an element of nature, rather than the mystical forceascribed by western religions. ... More »Host: George Noory
