Jude Currivan, PhD, has advanced degrees in both physics and archeology. She is author of several books, including The Wave, The Eighth Chakra, The Thirteenth Step, CosMos (with Ervin Laszlo), The Cosmic Hologram, and most recently The Story of Gaia: The Big Breath and the Evolutionary Journey of Our Conscious Planet.
Here she points out that we can observe the fundamental building blocks of life – amino acids, sugars, oxygen, hydrogen, sulfur, etc. – in the enormous gas and dust clouds within our own galaxy out of which stars and planets are formed. So, it is likely that we will find biological life throughout the galaxy. She describes the evolution and enormous intelligence of cells, even though they possess no nervous systems. The conversation covers enormous details leading up to modern humans, the last of the surviving hominids, the children of Gaia.
