    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.

    I am a bad reader. Slow, ill-disciplined, with a wandering mind.

    I will rarely manage a whole book.

    I will rarely manage a whole review of a book.

    For those out there like me - and for me - will you please imply your endorsement of a book in the following format?

    1. Two-sentence summary —> 2. One-sentence summary —> 3. One-word summary

    I'll start, with Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico Philosophicus:

    • "If we were to talk about the relation between language and the world - as philosophers would like to - we would have to step outside of language, and so would not be able to talk. So the propositions of philiosophy, this book included, are nonsense."

    • "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent."

    • "Shhh!"
