I intend the tale to be both an allegory on terrestrial conditions i. With it, he is returning to the space-adventure of the s from his years of writing essayistic fiction. Wizja lokalna Share your thoughts with other lkalna.
There exists ideological opposition between the collectivist Kurdlandia and the generally libertarian Luzania. The boundaries between observer and nature thus become fluid, and fluidity becomes an important metaphor for the nature of all perception.
I gradually removed the old patches, and began new ones—the new patchwork has grown in length and width. Stapledon shares with Borges the status of a master of fantastic philosophy.
SF tends only to extrapolate existing trends. This has to be done very well. If you try to drown, the water will push you out. The reasons for such a phenomenon are manifold. The most important seems to be the high level of commercialisation of SF in the English-speaking countries, especially in the US. Another is the popular misconception quite common even in the literary circles of America that since SF is only a popular genre, with very lowly origins in so-called pulp magazines and comics, no SF writer can be seriously regarded as a true artist.
Obviously, there are many exceptions to this rule. First, some SF writers are indeed regarded seriously by the critics for example Kurt Vonnegut. Secondly, some prominent authors are not regarded as writing SF, in spite of the fact that they really write in this genre.
Aldous Huxley and George Orwell are the most striking examples of this popular misconception. The reasons for such an artificial and obviously incorrect classification are manifold, and beyond the scope of this paper.
Therefore I shall only mention that after H. It is important to analyse Lem's non-science fiction novels in order to prove that the classification of Lem as a SF writer is artificial and reductionist. In his SF, Lem privileged the role of chance and the impossibility of meaningful contact between truly alien cultures. Lem's biographical novels and thrillers can also be read as political works.
Their artistic value may not be the highest mostly due to censorship , but they remain an important record of the times which many would like to expel from Polish history. The first part of this trilogy, Szpital Przemienienia Hospital of the Transfiguration is different from the last two parts.
First, it is not written in the socialist realist style of the other parts and, secondly, it is the only portion that is still in print in its original pre-socialist realist form. Politics plays an important role in Lem's thrillers, especially in Katar, translated as The Chain of Chance.
This is in contrast to the majority of orthodox English language detective stories. As there is no individual murderer, a triumph of justice as well as punishment of the criminal is impossible.
Thus it can be said that the external form of a detective story is misleading. Lem does not care either for happy endings or for solving the whole mystery.
Instead, he portrays detectives who must work for masters who have no idea about the nature of the observed events and are in turn pressured by politicians to get instant results in a situation without a solution.
Even Wysoki Zamek, which is the closest thing Lem ever wrote to a 3 S. The presence of an adult Lem is noticeable only in the background, unlike in the majority of autobiographies which present the past world as it is presently seen by the adult author.
In the first period the communists had not seized full control of Poland, and in the second their grip on power was not as strong as in the years of Stalinism in Poland roughly This is, however, not a full autobiography, as it addresses only selected aspects of Lem's life. There are also rare publications, in which Lem confirms his Jewish roots. Martin's Press, , p.
The first part, generally regarded as the best, Szpital Przemienienia, describes the vicissitudes of a young doctor, Stefan Trzyniecki, who is a kind of alter ego of the author Lem was also a graduate of medicine. Other heroes of the trilogy include a mathematical genius, who is murdered by the Gestapo. Excellent descriptions of the substation, the surgical procedures and the general atmosphere at the hospital indicate clearly the future interests of the young Lem.
Lem's medical education enabled him not only to describe accurately the relatively simple brain surgery in Szpital Przemienienia, but also the resurrection of Pirx the Pilot in Fiasko. The atmosphere of the hospital wards and operating theatres depicted in Hospital of the Transfiguration also has similarities to the other descriptions of closed communities made up of doctors or scientists, such as are found in His Master's Voice and Solaris.
Czas nieutracony was written between and ,14 before Lem decided to write almost exclusively in the science fiction genre. Lem's decision to choose science fiction as his main means of expression was partly political this genre was least shackled by the censors , and partly of more prosaic nature.
He was asked by the chief editor of the Czytelnik publishing house in early to write a science fiction novel. The enormous popularity of this novel Astronauci prompted Lem to keep writing science fiction.
It also supports the assumption that Nazism was an extremely irrational doctrine, since the Germans wasted many talents such as Banach's because of irrational racial prejudice. These talents could have been useful in war-related disciplines such as cryptography or computer science. This was for the reason discussed above the more lenient attitude of the censors , as well as the ease of locating the plot of science fiction stories on remote planets and in a distant future rather than in the mundane reality of communist Poland.
Czas nieutracony contains many autobiographical elements. In The Eleventh Voyage there is a portrait of the spaceship's Calculator folly, while Doctor Vliperdius' Institute describes a mental institution for the psychologically dysfunctional robots.
The whole of Czas nieutracony is written in the style of political15 prose. The reason is simple: the trilogy, and especially its second and third parts, are socialist realist works, written according to the rules set by the political system,16 according to which writers as well as the whole literature were tools for educating and controlling the masses.
Socialist realist literature was in reality indoctrination, which explains why Czas nieutracony, and especially its last two parts, is a political work sensu stricto. Wysoki Zamek is thus the key to Lem's whole body of work and explains his interest in technology and medicine, as well as his preoccupation with chance, unexplained phenomena and fantastic universes. As Wysoki Zamek was translated into English only very recently, it is one of Lem's few major works not to have been discussed widely in the English-speaking world.
Since the 15 Propagandistic, and especially in the two last parts socialist realist. High Castle is a rather unusual autobiography. It can be understood as Lem's attempt to recreate, interpret and understand himself as he was in his late childhood and very early adulthood up to late , when Lem was almost eighteen years old. In other words, it is a literary experiment to reconstruct the former self on the basis of relatively few surviving memories. Wysoki Zamek is deceitful: it consciously balances on the thin border between comedy and solemnity, pastiche and serious literature as in many other writings of this author.
It is a novel written, in contrast to Czas nieutracony, by a mature writer, a master of style. The recent experience in Puerto Rico is a pretty stark example of what can happen when this complex infrastructure breaks down. Food security, power security, medical security and transportation security can all disappear in pretty short order.
Much of the speculation regarding the human near future presumes this trend will continue but perhaps it's about to reverse. In particular, solar panels and battery powered machines with storage might reduce this supply "separation anxiety" quite a lot. Producing and using electric power locally will clearly negate the long fossil fuel and electric transmission infrastructures.
Electric machines including cars, planes etc are also much more reliable and require much less maintenance than their internal combustion cousins. So imagine you're in your home and hurricane Maria strikes but once it's gone you feel confident your fridge, car, plane vtol , water pump and internet will continue to work for at least six months without problem.
It's much different daily context that what almost everyone lives with these days, excepting those who live on sailboats. I am reminded of the theosophical and spiritualist fads of the early 20th century.
Or Rasputin. This worship of wealth runs deep in American culture. If the rich believe it, then there must be something to it! Or maybe they're just billionaire crackpots and philistines.
The only thing I see is a clownish human hubris, and where it concerns the viewing of humans as technological artifacts subject to our whims, a dangerous foolishness that echos the psychotic ideas and human experimentation of the previous century but coupled with a greater scientific sophistication.
Can technological artifacts become dangerous and pose harm? Anything that magnifies the power of human action can.
