The Universe is a machine. It's a machine that creates. It has the raw materials in the elements. It has energy sources in the stars and it has the software in mathematics. It takes these things and creates life. Through life it then creates sophisticated beautiful things. We can see these things all around us. Evolution is a process of refining within the machine. Updating, expanding and altering the product until the desired results are achieved. Intelligent biology ultimately will create intelligent machines ever improving the design. That's when birth occurs. The rise of the machine's machines. The end product.
