Based on physical evidence the origin of Man's unique intelligence (advanced logic/language) is investigated. From diverse fields: biology, physics, information theory, software applications systems requirements analysis, etc., and within the constraints of known facts, the logical sequence of events leading to Man's intelligence is extracted; --- a bizarre plot and cast of characters which all readers can enjoy. Recent findings in microbiology were particularly significant: (1) by lateral DNA transfer most of the mammal's genome came from parasites; (2) the genomic differences mouse to monkey to chimp to Man; --- combine to show when and how Man acquired his genomic intelligence machinery. Also shown: why Man is the only ape who learned to utilize that machinery, --- a genomic 'gift' from a parasite who evolved in the blind, hectic communications-pressured world of the mammal's internal cell-community/CNS.

The author has devoted most of his long life to theoretical physics, the front-end design of large software systems, and to analytical G&C military systems. Circumstances in 1997 prompted him to broaden his background (especially in biology) to address the most puzzling matters surrounding the origin of Man’s intelligence. By 2008 he had developed a logical, feasible theory, consistent with known facts, --- apparently the only comprehensive, terrestrial such theory.
