Nulli hac sapo - Paul Nicholas and Soul-Chaplain
For no light matter is at stake; the question concerns the very manner in which human life is to be lived.

Steps Towards an Ecology of Intelligence

"The biological change of state resulting in the emergence of thought affects life itself in its organic totality, and consequently it marks a transformation affecting the state of the entire planet."
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

"This sudden deluge of cerebralization, this biological invasion of a new animal type which gradually eliminates or subjects all forms of life that are not human, this irresistible tide of fields and factories, this immense and growing edifice of matter and ideas - all these signs that we look at, for days on end - exist to proclaim that there has been a change on the earth and a change of planetary magnitude."
Pierre Teihard de Chardin

"Every isolated determinate dynamic system obeying unchanging laws will develop 'organisms' that are adapted to their 'environments'. There is no difficulty, in principle, in developing synthetic organisms as complex and as intelligent as we please. But...their intelligence will be an adaptation to, and a specialization towards, their particular environment, with no implication of validity for any other environment such as ours."
William Ross Ashby, "Principles of the Self Organizing Dynamic System"

"Evolution will take its course. And that course has generally been downwards. The majority of species have degenerated and become extinct, or, what is perhaps worse, gradually lost many of their functions. The ancestors of oysters and barnacles had heads. Snakes have lost their limbs and ostriches and penguins their power of flight. Man may just as easily lose his intelligence."
J B S Haldane, "Man's Destiny", 1928
