They’re Made Out of Meat

Terry Bisson, in his short story, “They’re Made Out of Meat,” speculates on the odd fact that this material in our head has consciousness and thinks. When we think about interstellar travel, the meat in our head speculates on self replication Von Neuman probes which might spread through out the galaxy. Terry’s story illustrates the wonder of this universe that contains a principle that allows meat to think, to do, to create, to travel to the stars in the Mind’s Eye in the meat or, soon,  in actual reality.
