I'm not going to get into the idea of souls, because I don't think it's a real discussion. What happens with souls is personal belief, I don't think you can really have a back and forth about it. I don't agree that replicating all our parts also maintains our orginal consciousness. It creates a new ...

Except old Theseus is inanimate. It has no consciousness, and gets its identity as a ship of that name purely because everyone agrees that that is what it is. The parts may all have changed, but what makes Theseus Theseus is that it is still identified by people as the same ship. The difference with...

Nope, wouldn't teleport under those circumstances. It's basically just making a clone and then killing the original. I would die, but the rest of the world wouldn't notice and would continue living with the copy the transporter had created. Just because there's another version of me out there living...

Bean's view does not introduce us as much as brings a whole new angle to the story of Ender and his biggest moment in life. No. It completely retcons the entire character of Ender, making him into some helpless idiot who gets by on Bean's behind the scenes intelligence. More or less. Which is partl...

White glow of laptop
dimly lights his tired face.
Man has no friends.

Muscled avatar
defeats demons and boars.
Click click goes his life.

The flesh eats and drinks,
the graphics do the work.
They make a team.

Sunrise through the sky.
Planet spins by unnoticed.
He's got a new quest.

Of course it does, if you'd been supporting England we'd have to have words, though. I predict France to come first this year, Scotland will get second, Ireland, England and Wales battling it out for the next three spots and Italy to get the wooden spoon. But we've got a great group to be in for the...

This is not a movie for little children though the magic of this book is the space theme and age of the main characters does make it more attractive to little kids. Unlike me the little kids and older kids would not understand all the sexual parts. Well I'm glad you do understand them, because to b...

How's Ireland doing right now, anyway? I'm prepping for a deadline, so I haven't been able to watch any of the tournament yet. Barely scraped a win against Italy, so it could be a bad year. Which really wouldn't be at all surprising seeing as how the World Cup is in September, typically the team se...

I think this is a bit of a trick question. Is Ender gifted? Undoubtedly. However, the question is: Is he a great example of a gifted child. Now, what is meant by "great example". Firstly, this is a positive description, one which suggests that the actions carried out by Ender in the story are admira...

Sexual scene

How do you think the upcoming movie will handle the sexual scene in EG that was alluded to when Bean visits Ender in his room in Battle School? It's probably way too risqué for a major movie, but at the same time it's a pivotal and heart-wrenching moment that captures the total loneliness that the ...

Only problem is that if we had a fan art section, then after ten plus years, we would now have a grand total of one picture in that section.
