The Future of Life by Peter Popper
The Universe is alive. It requires living, biological organisms to grow and reproduce itself. Life is evolving, ordered information that resides not only in all organisms but also at the surface of the universe. Humans are advanced forms of living information carriers. If we wish to survive and to contribute to the living universe we must protect and advance life. This could be best achieved by expanding peacefully into our galaxy and beyond, while we learn to better understand and work together with other advanced species on our planet. The Milky Way is our playground.
