Humanity's Place in a Very Strange Universe
Our compulsion to make "sense of it all" used to be satisfied by myths and faith. Today, we probe for evidence that leads in surprising directions. As we learn about the intelligence of higher animals, the uniqueness of human sapience stands out. Just when we seem mentally ready to meet alien life, the cosmos suddenly looks stark and empty. New technologies may enhance... or replace... our definitions of personhood. And iconoclasts offer the disturbing theory that "the universe is all a simulation." Four hundred years after Giordano Bruno was burned for asking questions like these, are we bound upon the greatest adventure of all?
