The thing is, for me experimental results don’t seem to give a coherent picture, as I tried to express a few years ago in this short article: Some of his earlier short stories feature strong elements of supernatural horror, while due to his more popular science fiction he is known within the genre for his tendency to deal with complex and highly technical material including inventive new physics and epistemology in an unapologetically thorough manner.
Egan does not hold back, nor does he dumb down any of his concepts to make them more accessible…Bravo! You could probably fill a novel with all the different facets of that kind of emotional solitude, but he wrapped it up in a few pages.

The difference is that even though from the outside it’s impossible to tell if a person is still entirely flesh and blood or just a meat puppet with an immortal silicon homunculus pulling the strings, from the inside it’s quite different, and when the main character has a sync error between his jewel and his actual brain, all those familiar Cartesian ideas about the axiomatio become more than academic.
Je ne peux pas y croire! Refresh and try again. Claro, a no ser que pensemos en ello un poco.
