Some of the leading science philosophers and visionaries consider intelligence as being the fundamental driving force of our cosmos - in fact, as the essence of universal evolution:
Ray Kurzweil says that "intelligence would ultimately permeate the universe and would decide the destiny of the cosmos." In this scenario, intelligence would permeate the solar system as it become one giant supercomputer: ie. our non-biological intelligence would have converted the matter of the solar system into intelligent matter. Our solar intelligence would then spread through the galaxy and ultimately the universe. Once the universe 'woke up' into full conscious intelligence, it would then seek to create another universe with which to continue the evolution of super-intelligence. Thus, the universe would procreate. Some scientists postulate this as the origin of the 'multi-verse' hypothesis. And this would explain why our universe is so precisely attuned to our life - why the universal constants, the Plank constant, are so fine-tuned for life - because the universe was created in mind for the evolution from the atomic, to the biological, to the non-biological and cosmic computational intelligence.
Scientist James N. Gardner has even written a book on this called 'Biocosm: The New Scientific Theory of Evolution: Intelligent Life Is the Architect of the Universe' where he postulates that in fact we are part of a fantastic cosmic design/plan to further our intelligence towards the universal mind:
"We and other living creatures throughout the cosmos are part of a vast, still undiscovered transterrestrial community of lives and intelligences spread across billions of galaxies and countless parsecs who are collectively engaged in a portentous mission of truly cosmic importance. Under the Biocosm vision, we share a common fate with that community - to help shape the future of the universe and transform it from a collection of lifeless atoms into a vast, transcendent mind."
If this is the leading edge of science - where is it leading us to??
These are truly evolutionary times...
