Read ✓ Stories of Your Life and Others Å PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Stories of Your Life and Others delivers dual delights of the very very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar often presenting characters who must confro. Update Saturday the 12th November 2016I just watched the movie The Arrival and OMG it was amazing I cried Like a lot I had chills and sat on the edge of my seat and I was totally engaged What s worse The personal aspects of the movie just blew me away And even worse The mental ones were profound and beautiful and amazing I AM SUEEEINGNow here s the big uestion Am I a fanboy because the movie only improved my appreciation of the original story Or am I just blown away by the better presentation of the original storyThe mathematical implications in the original story and the way it described what was going on is not to be discounted at all mind you I loved what the text could do and did But the movie got me on a whole different level and I was laughing and crying and it was soooo damn bittersweet and glorious all at the same time I was MOVED Jeeze I m amazed evenSo Best movie of the year I think so There were a lot of great ones out there too but this one took the cake shiver Old ReviewI can t believe that I took so long to check out this story collection In fact I don t believe it For one good reason I read one of his short stories when it came out and hadn t remembered that I had until a few pages in AND I remembered loving it Golems Names of God MURDER That was one hell of a pleasant surpriseAs for the rest I admit to wanting to know the story that The Arrival is based on before I watched the movie this weekend And here s the strange part While I loved it I loved all the other stories even shockSeriously this man is a walking powerhouse of sharp as hell storytelling and erudition all wrapped up in an utterly fascinating intensity and focus on singularly awesome issues I ll skip discussion on the stories that didn t blow me away but that still leaves almost all the stories in the bookWhat do I mean Okay take Tower of Babylon If having a world where the building of the tower wasn t hampered where reaching the city of God at the top takes than a full year of pilgrimage where we re immersed in ancient Babylon is twisted with one singular difference can you guess what that difference is I laughed out loud after I discovered it Just imagine the old joke of half glass fullempty when applied to engineers The glass didn t meet design specifications Oh my god Anyway Then there was Understand which made me think of Flowers for Algernon with a seriously different bent Let s go ultimate intelligence with the focus on understanding the real nature of thought Hell yeah I mean we didn t even need the techno thriller aspects of this modern retelling or the fight between ultimate intelligences Not really But it was also fun as hellWhat about Stories of Your Life The one that is tied to the new movie It s about linguistics and the nature of similar concepts linking the ways we think about higher physics and the fact that we need to make that bridge before we could even speak to this alien intelligence Or how our conception of time of cause and effect is completely useless inside their language If we actually begin to understand it that heavy concept how can that change our lives It really is gorgeous Seventy Two Letters Golems as a great twist on artificial intelligence featuring the problems of reproduction and natural selection as a linguistic issue focusing on the Kabbalah as the key to unlock the power and creative force of God And it s a great adventure too Liking What You See A Documentary Oh goodness this was a blast It s all focused on the nature and the use and misuse of beauty with a major twist What if we could block the paths in our brains that let us see and feel the effects of beauty Purpose To see people as they really are below the skin No pre judging assholes as really great people because they re pretty No ignoring the uglies who might be great people Level the playing field and judge people by their actions Great huh Well this documentary focuses on pilot schools and whole social movements for the treatment and the backlash of whole industries that want the slavery to continue Really great thought experiment and beautifully writtenCult of personality indeed How much of it is skin deep Sorry I got really excited about all this I love it when I read really great books

This is a story of love and the devastating conseuences of realising one s love object is not as perfect as one thoughtThe opening paragraph reads like a maths textbook and the second is set in a psychiatric hospital Don t let either put you off I married a man with a maths degree and our child is now at university studying theoretical physics that is practically maths but I am primarily a words person This gave me a wonderful peek at the joy that can be found in numbers and patterns theoretical and also physical as well as the psychological risks As a child of seven Renee had been spellbound at discovering the perfect suares in the smooth marble tiles of the floor A single one two rows of two three rows of three the tiles fit together in a suare No matter which side you looked at it from ti came out the same And than that each suare was bigger than the last by an odd number of tiles It was an epiphany The conclusion was necessary it had a rightness to it confirmed by the smooth cool feel of the tiles And the way the tiles were fitted together she had shivered at the precision She devoted her life to maths was happy and successful until she made a discovery that was like a theologian proving that there was no God How to find meaning life after that And don t say 42The mathematical ideas relevant to the story were explained clearly enough that I think I understood them sufficiently If you want to delve deeper Mark H recommended this though I confess it went above my head For other stories in the collection Stories of Your Life see my review HEREImage source reviewTed Chiang is a technical writer in the software industry as many of the best people are He occasionally publishes short stories a remarkably high proportion of which have won major sci fi awards including 4 Nebulas and 4 Hugos for only 15 works That indicates the uality of what s within these pages but may mislead about the genre content and style Some are set in the far past and the only aliens and space faring are in the title story though there is futuristic technology in most Speculative fiction than sci fi Instead these stories are primarily about inner space and ideas especially seeking meaning by analysing patterns of language maths and nature That leads to theological and philosophical uestions about good evil God and what it means to be human and at what point we cease to be such see also Vonnegut s GalapagosThe reviews of individual stories are in spoiler tags for easy scrolling but don t contain spoilersTower of Babylon 4Drilling through the vault of heaven in ancient Babylon view spoiler The first short story in a collection by a supposed sci fi author is set in Old Testament Babylon and features nothing futuristic or alien It almost feels as if it were written in ancient times If you want a label you could use Atwood s speculative fiction or perhaps less appealingly maths fiction The Tower of Babylon has nearly reached the vault of heaven Miners are recruited to drill through so people can know Yahweh better The tower is so high it takes the team around four months of solid climbing dragging tools on cartsThe world building was believably detailed the mythology and psychology almost real Whole communities live at levels on the tower never coming down to earth with ingenious ways of growing food At higher levels the light of day shone upward and plants grow sideways or down At the very top they walk among moving stars and the sight of the vault inspired unease They uestion the theology and conseuences of what they are doing might Yahweh punish their arrogance or be pleased at their aspiration and endeavour They continue cautiously using ancient techniues of fire setting and simple picks and drills slowly creating huge chambers in the smooth granite vault The dramatic conclusion causes a complete reappraisal of beliefs about God man and their relationship Ultimately By this construction Yahweh s work was indicated and Yahweh s work was concealed Image source for ancient cylinder seal hide spoiler
