Book Description

The inspiration for the book came from the following quote by Charles Darwin: "Believing as I do that man in the distant future will be a far more perfect creature than he now is, it is an intolerable thought that he and all other sentient beings are doomed to complete annihilation after such long-continued slow progress."

An extraterrestrial computer intelligence (the Vessel) arrives in Earth's orbit. It plugs into, and takes control of all, human telecommunication systems. The Vessel seems benign and offers all its knowledge to everyone for free. The Vessel's knowledge fast-forwards human technology. We benefit, yet the very future of humanity is at risk.

Homo Cosmiens is a journey into Earth's future. Will any part of our humanity survive? By taking us to a future utopian world the book holds up a mirror to Homo sapiens, for us to examine who we are through the adventures of a new species on Earth: the Homo cosmiens.

Editorial Reviews


San Francisco Book Review
Homo Cosmiens is an indictment of modern society and how we've squandered many of the gifts we were given. But it is also a tribute to the incurable curiosity and potential that defines us...

Reviewed by: Gary Sorkin, Pacific Book Review
I knew from the start I needed to fasten my mental seat belt when I began Homo Cosmiens: A new beginning to the final ending, as David Millett blasted off bringing the reader up to speed on the creation of the universe beginning from the Big Bang in just the first few pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it for content, not style November 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An engaging read. Read it to stimulate your consideration of humanity's future and the forces our cultural heritages place in our path. The writing style is not polished, not beautiful, but you'll be drawn in and likely stay with it continuously to the end. I enjoyed it thoroughly and look forward to sharing it and discussing it with my adult children.

Homo Cosmiens is a book well worth the read. It is very much to the point and as someone who is reaching his final end, very relevant!
