Origin of life from space goo?
Popular Mechanics has the scoop:
Why Superintelligent Machines Are Probably the Dominant Lifeforms in the Universe
It’s a robot’s universe. We’re just living in it.
University of Connecticut philosophy professor Susan Schneider certainly thinks so. In her new paper “Alien Minds,” she proposes that by the time civilizations are able to communicate by radio, they’re a few short steps away from developing artificial intelligence. One they reached that level of advancement, they may have opted to upgrade their biology to something that’s a biomechanical hybrid or something entirely synthetic. There could be a whole mess of Borg out there, in other words. More.
Possibly, the superintelligent robots that dominate the universe (mess of Borg) work with goo. Most robots prefer to work neat.
