Author's Comments: Encyclopedic review of human intelligence Aug 3, 1999
A good part of mankind is interested in the searching for the extraterrestrial intelligence. Some hundreds of thousands of amateurs around the world co-operate in the decoding of radio-signals received by the radio-telescope. How many people are interested in a search for terrestrial intelligence? What we know about our own intelligence? How is working the human brain, the most complex structure in our corner of the Universe? This book gives a review of numerous sides of human intelligence: from primary processes in neurons, in brain, towards the complex phenomena as speech, lie, free will and consciousness. The artificial intelligence and the hypothetical extraterrestrial intelligence are also discussed. The future of intelligence is the final question of this book.
