I find too many Sci-Fi authors get caught up with the Science wand miss out on the opportunity to narrative meaningful, allegoric and absorbing tales. This is the first of 25 books in a list I’ve drawn up for myself of works of science fiction to read in I recommend this book.
I wish oh how I wished while I was reading this that Stapledon had been a lighter writer. Stapledon contemplates human nature, the rise and fall of satpledon, collective consciousness between humans and alien speciesour place in the Universe, estrellss political ideologies, the origins and nature of religions and gods, mysticism, and possibly the most mind-boggling concept in the whole book the idea that planets, stars, galaxies and the Universe itself could be conscious as a kind of super-mind.

Eventually he discovers other intelligent minds, and joins in a collective mind with them. What comes up is Ozymandian in its obscurity. This might be the weirdest book I have ever read. Ada rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: In this, in its estreloas, is a narrator and perhaps an author coming to grips with the onset of the second World War, and the vast suffering and destruction that will be both necessary and regrettable.
Again, in a sense all these world-orders were democratic, since the final sanction of policy was world-opinion.
There are no actual stories that happen on these planets, just summaries.
En este viaje busca el sentido de la vida y el Hacedor de estrellas, el Creador o el dios supremo. Also, there isn’t much plot, in any traditional sense, which is probably why no one hxcedor reads this book.
Quotes from Star Maker: He ed, by proxy wanted to explore the problems estgellas advantageous possibilities of communication between the individuals that make up a community. It’s really an impossible task the author has set himself, so if I fault him early on, it must not be taken for a lack of enthusiasm.
The narrator encounters many forms of life, many different kinds of intelligence. I love the way he convincingly details how planets, stars and galaxies can have their own unique intelligence and form their own kind of civilisation.
