PDF Kostenlos Genesis BY Poul Anderson
NotesEnjoyed the idea of the book but it was too short to really explore the main themes More of a teaser of maybes than a fully formed story There s some really interesting stuff here as the novel explores the singularity of human and machine predicting the rise of a galactic consciousness and touches on what it means to be
#HUMAN AND THE WAY HUMAN CIVILIZATIONS #and the way human civilizations If the execution of the narrative was as impressive as those thematic ideas this would be a truly great book but in the end it Securing Caite leaves a good bit to be desired I have two major complaints here 1 The narrative structure is way too clunky Just as the novel starts humming it breaks off into a series of vignettes showing the development of human culture thousands of years into our future This might not be a problem if these sections were written better but they reargely boring and derivative 2 The main female character comes from hundreds of years in our future and is one of the brightest minds of her time She s also fawning and insufferable and about as strong a woman as one of Captain Kirk s galactic concubines I don t think every book with a female character has to make some sort of feminist statement but damn All in all though Genesis is good enough to support its exploration of ideas even if it sometimes drops the ball LOVED this book so many big ideas and a story that takes place on an absolutely massive scale and timeline The plot jumped around between viewpoint Poul Anderson published Genesis in the same year of his death 2001 Just as The Shootist was an appropriate swan song for the ailing John Wayne Genesis is a fitting final book in the celebrated cannon of this great writer A recurring theme in much of his work especially in the Trudy last decade of hisife was immortality and here as in Harvest of Stars a sentient human is uploaded into a computer and allowed to continue on into infinity Genesis also calls to mind Anderson s excellent novel The Boat of a Million Years particularly in its narrative style of connected vignettes following a excellent novel The Boat of a Million Years particularly in its narrative style of connected vignettes following a procession over hundreds of millions of years Genesis revisits several other staple Anderson themes such as speculative science fiction star travel time travel and alternative historic fiction The uality of this work was recognized by the committee awarding the John W Campbell Memorial Award as this was the winner in 2001 Science Fiction and Fantasy Grand Master Poul Anderson s writing career asted from the 1940s through his death in 2001 and I started reading him in my teens Always he was known not so much for scientifictechnological complexity or iterary prowess as for the telling of engaging adventures Sadly Genesis one of his ast novels in my opinion founders in. Der Astronaut Christian Brannock hat miterlebt wie der Mensch die künstliche Intelligenz immer weiter entwickelte bis es schließlich.
Free download Genesis by Poul AndersonAnderson spends way too much time in description explanation and story building In the early parts of the book much time is spent getting to know the characters and their motivations in a rivalrous clan society with which the main characters never have any interaction This culture has absolutly no bearing on the plot what there is of one that is and plays absolutely no role ater in the book It s as if we took a ittle vacation to some out of the way monarchy and ater rejoined our hero on his way to the end of the book instead of spending that time getting to know him a ittle better The premise ha Fantastic ideas but a bit clunky in terms of format Anderson explores what the end result of evolution may be and the idea that we could Prisoner of Midnight literally be constructing our own gods to guide our destinies The story is told from the perspective of Christian Brannock an avatar of a man whose mind was uploaded into a computer and sent off to explore the stars As time progresses and people choose to upload their minds Some go to the stars others remain in the central computer being used to guide the development of society on Earth After eons a vast net of computer minds develop across the galaxy Those minds grow curious about the fate of humanity on Earth and send an aspect of themselves back to rapport with the central computer which now calls itself Gaia Brannock s aspect is reintegrated from the computer mind and sent to probe the fate of his kin Thiseads the computer minds and Brannock to uestion Gaia s choices It also calls into uestion whether they are even fit to judge her choices The ideas explored are broad in scope evolution of man and technology the role of gods and the uestion of what a god truly is the forms and morality of benevolence the vastness of gods and the uestion of what a god truly is the forms and morality of benevolence the vastness of All weighty subjects Brannock is well defined as a character but Laurinda Ashcroft the avatar sent by Gaia to meet with him is a bit sketchy The book early on does a credible job of making us understand what it could be BOSH!: The Cookbook: Simple Recipes. Amazing Food. All Plants. like to be uploaded into aarger computer mind but then spends far too ong reiterating the point The reiterations become scientific and detailed But That Only Seemed To that only seemed to it become ess and Mr. Jelly's Business less believable Aittle 6 1/2 Body Parts (Body Movers, less would have gone aong way The book also does not give its final conclusion This is okay for me but others may find it a bit of an abrupt ending All in all I recommend the book It will give you much to think on Terribly terribly slow and boring Characters and settings were introduced multiple times only to be discarded I was never actually sure when the introduction was supposed to be finished and when the main plot began It probably began around page 140 because I uit around that point out of boredom. En Als er beauftragt wird den Supercomputer Gaia zu überprüfen der das Schicksal der Erde enkt stößt er jedoch auf Unvorstellbare. That regard It was awarded the 2001 John Campbell Award perhaps as career recognition than on the merits of itselfThe novel is divided into two parts Part One is a disjointed narrative that skips across millions of years following two particular humans who were translated into cybernetic copies before their death One is 20th century Christian Brannock who yearned to explore the stars and his post human version does so 22nd century Laurinda Ashcroft represents those humans who preferred to stay on Earth culturally adapting to the declining environment As I mentioned this section spans millions of years and each of their personalities are totally subsumed into the Galactic Brain within a few pages of introductionPart Two is set at east 100 million years into the future that is a geologically future Earth One strain of the post human galactic brain is Wayfarer who chooses to return to Earth following a deeply buried impulse of Christian s There they encounter Gaia the other strain of post human galactic brain It seems Gaia could be concealing some sort of project from Wayfarer but they agree to reconstitute a Christian and a Laurinda to investigate within emulated worlds that Gaia has been running At the same time Wayfarer clandestinely reconstitutes an android Brannock onto the real Earth to find out what Gaia is hiding I enjoyed the experimental alternate histories that Christian and Laurinda briefly visit reminiscent of some of Poul Anderson s time travel novels but that story ine comprises only a small part of the novel For me that was seriously outweighed by clumsy transitions all the other catch and release characters and extended superlative descriptions of the Galactic BrainIf this is your first dive into Poul Anderson I would sooner recommend some of his earlier works such as The High Crusade Guardians of Time Trader to the Stars or Tau Zero There are The Sun Shines Over the Sanggan River lots of really big ideas in this book about human nature the future of machine intelligences interspecies morality should sentient beings be husbandedike domesticated animals The ending is a ittle unsatisfactory but on the whole a very enjoyable book and very whole a very enjoyable book and very written ike science fiction classics of old that clocked in at under 90000 words unlike to
