...and life beyond
Okay, belying what I just wrote, I always have time for highly evolved posthumans (the image above is borrowed from the link target). And while you're at it, go look up one of the greats in this weird, awesome field, Wayne Douglas Barlowe.
Update: Woah. The guy who painted the thing above goes by the handle Nemo Ramjet, and he has a lot more cool, weird stuff on his site. Freak out with your geek out.
