    Hardcover Ú Solaris MOBI º solaris ebok, Solaris Kindle Many sci fi authors think that they write about aliens The truth is they really don't Instead they essentially write about humans Most sci fi aliens are little than an allegory for humanity a mirror through which we can see ourselves maybe slightly different looking with or fewer appendages different senses funny names different social structures but still unmistakably human And so when we think of aliens as shown in popular literature cinematography 99% of us will imagine these rather than this Whichever way the sci fi aliens are described there is always something about them that we can relate to Basically it serves the age old purpose of self insertion of a reader into a book This is the same excuse that Hollywood gives any time it wants to show us a society different from ours and inevitably sticks a relatable protagonist there usually a macho white guy That's whe

    Hardcover Ú Solaris MOBI º solaris ebok, Solaris KindleI rate books based on my enjoyment and while this was an very interesting take on the whole alienfirst contact I can't say I had a lot of fun reading itI do recommend it if you love that premise and are intrigue about a sentient ocean but it won't be for everyone

    Hardcover Ú Solaris MOBI º solaris ebok, Solaris KindleWe have no need of other worlds We need mirrors We don't know what to do with other worlds A single world our own suffices us; but we can't accept it for what it is Bizarrely being on a strange different planet sometimes is what it takes to discover our inner cosmos The way Lem describes it in Solaris our memories rule our perception of what is real regardless of external circumstances On the other hand the external ci

    Hardcover Ú Solaris MOBI º solaris ebok, Solaris KindleAlthough the book was written back in 1960 the last century I must admit that I did not notice it at all This book is a timeless masterpiece of science fiction Everything we know about the universe in the book there is a review not to speak of the human psyche that the writer brought to the last hidden parts of humanity The book examines all At the end of what we know about the universe only tiny details and the man is not at all aware of what hidden in the vastness of the stars The whole book permeated by challenging the planet Solaris which is in fact a living being For years scientists theorize that are falli

    Hardcover Ú Solaris MOBI º solaris ebok, Solaris KindleI've been meaning to read this for a while and bought the book years ago because I know Lem is one of the greats of SF Plus I figured if they made a movie out of it the story had to have some good staying power But I had a hard time getting into it True I haven't read much Sci fi lately But I'm certainly not a genre snob I like me some Sci fi vintage or otherwise But the story just felt cumbersome to me Half of it was an engaging psychological teaserthrillermystery the other half read like the research bibliography covering 100 years of fictional science surrounding a fictional planet The first half was pretty good The second half was numbing It's possible that I was missing some cunning interplay between these two parts of a book but if that's the case then that level of the book was utterly lost on me

    Hardcover Ú Solaris MOBI º solaris ebok, Solaris KindleWhen I was a kid my dad was obsessed with the idea of UFO’s and alien contact He made me and my brother watch endless episodes of trashy American documentaries about sightings and abductions In fact I sat through so many of these that I started to have nightmares about bug eyed extra terrestrial beings entering my room at night I guess that for my dad – who did not have a partner whose children were emotionally if not physically estranged from him and whose job was not exactly stimulating – the promise of other planets and other species of being whisked away from his humdrum life must have been pretty appealing While I too wanted to somehow escape the situation I found myself in the prospect of other worlds or beings never fired my imagination I found it difficult enough to get my head around the behaviour and motivations of humans I had enough problems understanding my own world that the possibility of engaging meaningfully with aliens struck me as to all intents a
