@starwall all of these are incredible but this one I love the most
@starwall I've mentioned it before, but one of the major cultures in A Deepness In The Sky, the spacefaring Qeng Ho, treat bonsai trees and parks as some of their most treasured physical items. It is important for humans to see trees and life when they shift among the stars.
@robotcarsley Vinge has great concepts and a great like, pseudo-ethnography, but holy god his attempts at writing romance are awful, just the most painful, forced nonsense. Even in Deepness, my clear favorite, it makes me want to die.
the halcyon days when you could stick your bare hands into the dirt and your skin wouldn't burn
@starwall all the robots are certain. they just know. all the time. humanity fumbles, we stumble and fall. but the robots pick us up.
maybe we don't want to be picked up. our time is over. but the robots carry on. they are certain. they are certain.
