It’s Really a Shame

I’m almost finished The Vital Question by Nick Lane.

I may write a book review but the punchline is that bacterial life is probably common throughout the universe.

Complex eukaryotic life, on the other hand, is probably very rare.

And human-like intelligence will be even rarer if Varki is right.

We are wrecking a very special thing.

Enjoy it while it lasts.
