His style as playful as ever, Timothy Ferris explores inner as well as outer space in these essays on the human mind, the search for extraterrestrial (and thus nonhuman) intelligence, and their intersection. Other chapters look at comet strikes as a source of species extinction; near-death experience; apocalyptic prophecies; information theory; and the origin of laughter.
