"Lovecraft’s influence on SF and horror is extensive! He even foresees alien translation devices, in the 1920’s!" Jan 09, 2023 11:11PM

“That man-made climate change is real, and potentially an existential threat to many communities around the world and many aspects of civilisation, is so well established as a scientific fact by this point that it seems kind of dull to run over the evidence again.”
Tom Phillips, Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up

“Forced to choose between limiting population or trying to increase food production, we chose the latter and ended up with starvation, warfare, and tyranny.”
Tom Phillips, Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up

“Humans see patterns in the world, we can communicate this to other humans, and we have the capacity to imagine futures that don’t yet exist: how if we just changed this thing, then that thing would happen, and the world would be a slightly better place. The only trouble is … well, we’re not terribly good at any of those things. Any honest assessment of humanity’s previous performance on those fronts reads like a particularly brutal annual review from a boss who hates you. We imagine patterns where they don’t exist. Our communication skills are, uh, sometimes lacking. And we have an extraordinarily poor track record of failing to realise that changing this thing will also lead to the other thing, and that even worse thing, and oh God no now this thing is happening how do we stop it.”
Tom Phillips, Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up

Yuval Noah Harari
“First, if you want reliable information, pay good money for it. If you get your news for free, you might well be the product.”
Yuval Noah Harari, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century

Cornelia Funke
“That was the use of knives for women: to cut food for the men who killed with their knives… who killed those women's husbands, their sons, and their daughters.”
Cornelia Funke, Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun
