Book Description

Organisms, or organized, living, systems. What's their origin? Why and how did they evolve? This book analyses the evolution of complex structures in the universe - from the subatomic particles after the Big Bang onwards - in order to understand the emergence of today's interconnected society.

Artificial Intelligence, it concludes, is just the final step of a journey which started with DNA, itself the first Information and Communication Technology devised by nature on planet earth. What we are living today is the formation of the distributed nervous system of a metaorganism, in which human beings are the cells.

A reassuring environment for us, but one where each individual will count increasingly less. A hugely complex, world-wide organism which makes Homo, while more communicans, also increasingly less sapiens.

About the Authors
  • Mario Alemi is an Italian physicist and author. He is the author of "The Amazing Journey of Reason from DNA to Artificial Intelligence". Alemi writes about how Homo sapiens, after having reached a limit in the development of the brain, developed communication skills -shifting in this way information storage and processing from the individual to the network of people. According to this view, the emergence of digital communication (the "social nervous system") is an inevitable process, not different to the emergence of the nervous system in complex organisms or DNA in biological cells.
