Three big bangs: matter-energy, life, mind (2008)
Dr. Rolston speaks to "three big bangs" in natural history: 1. At the primordial big bang, matter-energy appears; 2. Life explodes on Earth with DNA discovering, storing, and transferring information; 3. The human genius, a massive singularity, crosses a trans-genetic threshold, generating language and making possible cumulative transmissible cultures, radically novel in kind and in scale.
