Here's a link to an interesting (IMHO) article by Minsky relating to
convergent intelligences, ie. why intelligences would follow the same

There is also Richard Dawkin's claim (paraphrasing) that: "If life were
to evolve on another planet, it would evolve by Darwinian evolution
(the kind we've seen on Earth)." -- This is probably not worth
speculating about since there aren't any really good contenders to the
theory that I've seen, but interesting to ponder, none-the-less.
