Submission + - James Gardner's new book/Foreword Ray Kurzweil

Sharon Heede writes: "Following his first groundbreaking book, Biocosm, which argued that the purpose of cosmic evolution is the propagation of baby universes exhibiting the same life-friendly physical qualities as their parent-universe, James Gardner's new book, The Intelligent Universe: AI, ET, and the Emerging Mind of the Cosmos (New Page Books, February, 2007; $25.99), tells an extraordinary story of the probable future of the universe. Gardner's provocative examination of the most cutting-edge theories about the future of our universe and humanity itself, includes a substantial foreword by artificial intelligence guru Ray Kurzweil, bestselling author of The Age of Intelligent Machines, The Age of Spiritual Machines, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever and The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology. Gorgeous color photographs and easy-to-read diagrams and illustrations enhance the text.
