Life Ascending is great book.
- If you work with any kind of evolutionary system or neural networks or meta-optimizers (Like Schmidhuber's Gödel machine) there comes a point when you realize that "intelligence", whatever it is, should be expected to arise. Evolution and meta-evolution proceed at the same time in life, so intelligence should be ambient in Nature.
- Evolution cares about one thing: do we have children and raise them to a point of self-sufficiency. Any time the answer is "no," natural selection will correct this or the species will go extinct. Any time the answer is "yes," natural selection says "Good enough!"
