Sidrabota saule lec... by Gotfrīds Mīlbergs
"Latviešu fantastika, nu itkā zinātniskā. Un pat esot pirmā, pirmoreiz izdota 1924. gadā. Tik ar to iztēli tā pašvakāk. Nu tik daudz, uz 2107. gadu lidmašīnas ir standarta pārvietošanās līdzeklis un ir arī pazemes tanki ,,kurmji'' un vēl šādas tāda..." Read more of this review »

Blindsight by Peter Watts
"Par šo grāmatu es uzzināju lasot fantastikai veltītu žurnālu. Tīri vai jābrīnās, cik daudz labu grāmatu es sava mūža laikā esmu palaidis garām. Vismaz tā man šķita izlasot recenziju. Jau sen esmu nolēmis izlasīt vismaz tās, par kurām man izdodas u..." Read more of this review »
The Ego Tunnel by Thomas Metzinger
"Nice discussion of Metzinger's theory of consciousness. His basic claim is that what humans tend to think of as a "self" is what he calls a "phenomenal self-model" (PSM). As the name suggests, the PSM is the brain's model of the organism as a whol..." Read more of this review »

The Darkness That Comes Before by R. Scott Bakker
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”
R. Scott Bakker

Ken Kesey
“Man, when you lose your laugh you lose your footing.”
Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Michael Crichton
“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”
Michael Crichton

Richard Wright
“I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of the hunger for life that gnaws in us all.”
Richard Wright, Black Boy

Dalai Lama XIV
“If scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims.”
Dalai Lama XIV, The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality

Alan Moore
“My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.”
Alan Moore
