When populations consist of small, isolated families, cheating is a poor strategy. It is easy to detect and punish cheats. Predators need a certain population density. They must be able to move on after exhausting a given territory.
Dan Simmons
“There is a war up there where time creaks which spans galaxies and eons back and forward to the Big Bang and the Final Implosion\\”
Dan Simmons, The Fall of Hyperion

Peter F. Hamilton
“This universe and all it is connected with will come to an end. Entropy carries us towards the inevitable omega point, that is why entropy exists.”
Peter F. Hamilton, The Naked God

Greg Egan
“When I was ten years old, all I gave my sweetheart was a pair of projections that turned the group of rotations in four dimensions into principal bundles over the three-sphere. Ancient constructions, though I did rediscover them for myself.’ ‘How were they received?’ ‘She liked them so much, she extended them to larger spaces and gave me back the result.”
Greg Egan

Yuval Noah Harari
“The greatest scientific discovery was the discovery of ignorance.”
