This was an amazing read. It elegantly covers Life from the inception of the universe to what might occur next.

What I liked the most was when he talked about "externally transmitted information". I never thought of books and written knowledge as being part of human evolution as much as DNA, though it definitely fits the description.

It's easy to regard ideas themselves as having evolution. Only those ideas that resonate with humans are preserved and passed on. The rest die.
