Traveling for a wedding this weekend, so today only have a short update. Been thinking mainly about F-box and Consciousness (see comments on last post). My interests in sci fi as social commentary seem to always track towards the tension between government, and individual people's desire to live in a free and secure society. For ex: what are the consequences of what the United States is doing in the world right now? What are the costs, how will history view our actions and decisions, what will the rapid evolution of technology do to us as human beings? What are the ways in which the world could change, swiftly and irreversibly, as a result of actions we don't like to spend too much time thinking about, but our inaction makes us complicit in? All intriguing questions, with outcomes I could see unfolding in many different ways.
ooga booga, more tomorrow
