Are Computers Alive? Evolution and New Life Forms
Simons, Geoff. Are Computers Alive? Evolution and New Life Forms. Cambridge, MA: Birkhauser Boston, 1983.
GS believes computers are, in a sense, alive, since they can reason, evolve, and "express both creativity and free will." Rev. W. D. Stevens, FR #69 (July 1984): 44, source for this entry and quote. (Note that this question from the early 1980s is provocative but, as stated, rather silly. Self-replicating machines, however, may be closer to literal, biological life.)
