Human and Machine Intelligence


   We might be the only intelligent life in the universe and, in that case, it’s very important that we solve all our problems and make sure that something intelligent persists.  I think Carl Sagan had some argument of that sort.  If you were sure that there were lots of others, then it wouldn’t seem so important.
