Humans and the Possible Futures With Alien Encounters on Earth – Book Review
What if humankind ever stopped having wars, and trying to blow itself up? What if all the technological advances were not used for military or to kill one’s own species, but rather were used to develop technologies to help the population, and cure the planet? Many academic elites like to think about these things, and they claim that technology for destruction is quite unfortunate amongst the human race.
If you’d like to analyze this more, perhaps, in a science fiction setting, then I’d sure like to recommend a very good book to you, and it is the last book that Arthur C. Clarke co-authored before he died, but published after his death. The name of the book is;
“The Last Theorem,” by Arthur C. Clarke and Federik Pohl; Del Ray a division of Ballantine Books; New York, NY; 2009; (307 pages); ISBN: 978-0-378-47023-2
The last theorem is pretty interesting. We know that A squared plus B squared equals C squared, but have you ever considered the reality that it only works with being squared, or that it only works in two dimensions, and it does not work in three dimensions? Perhaps, you can see the relevance of the theme of this book, and it will make you think in ways that perhaps you have not thought of before, in addition as bring new concepts out, and perhaps, be another one of Arthur C. Clarke’s lessons to the world.
The book goes into the future of mankind, in addition as other intelligent civilizations and worlds; how far they’ve progressed, or regressed. It explains how worlds that have progressed have done so in a certain way, and others are ultimately doomed for destruction of their own making, or by other intelligent civilizations, which realize they are a menace to the universe. Anyways, I think you will enjoy this book, and I highly recommend it.
