Der futurologische Kongreß
Der futurologische Kongreß: Aus Ijon Tichys Erinnerungen | Stanislaw Lem
3 posts | 8 read | 2 to read
Das Kernstück der Erzählung bildet eine lange Episode, in der der nach schweren Verletzungen in Kühlschlaf versetzte Ijon Tichy im Jahre 2039 erwacht, wo mittlerweile das Zeitalter der Psychemie angebrochen ist, der Beeinflussung aller Sinneswahrnehmungen durch chemische Mittel, die die ganze menschliche Existenz durchdringen, so daß es keine Wirklichkeit mehr gibt, die nicht chemisch manipuliert wäre.

I don‘t normally reread books, but this one with its crazy premise has been on my mind a lot recently. The chatty, playful bits haven‘t aged all that well, but the overall build-up remains great.

Terrific and funny and prophetic book. Like Philip K. Dick writing in the style of Woody Allen‘s short pieces. The bit about computers shirking their programming seems to be coming true. #sf #1970s #futurology #lem

Took a break from reading to watch this movie which, as it turns out, is based on a novella by Stanislaw Lem. Very loosely based, I'd say. The movie is animation bookended by live action and stars the impeccable Robin Wright.
