Considering that was a) written in 2006 and b) a joke I don't think you're going to get a response. Doesn't that count as a response? I agree about the agnosticism by the way, it really is how each individual interprets it, but it's based on not believing or disbelieving something until you have so...

Re: What do we really see?

How do we know if what we see is the truth? For example, one person sees the colour red as red, but another person may see the col...

Re: Sci-fi and reality

This could reside more in philosophy, but it is in regards to science, real and imaginary. I'm not much of a sci-fi reader, so I figured I could get the input of those who know better. I've wondered lately if perhaps sci-fi isn't directing the path that technology might take in reality. This robot ...

Answer & Question

As I recall, toward the end of the series, the Hive Queen that Ender was holding even comes out and says that the Hive Queens themselves were mindless drones, too, that there was only ever one Formic aiua, one intelligence. It's kind of a big moment for Ender since he realizes that even his Xenocid...
