“Paul sensed his own tensions, decided to practice one of the mind-body lessons his mother had taught him. Three quick breaths triggered the responses: he fell into the floating awareness ... focusing the consciousness ... aortal dilation ... avoiding the unfocused mechanism of consciousness ... to be conscious by choice ...” #float #QuotsyJune19

A Sci-Fi classic, this book is the story of Shevek, a brilliant physicist who has grown up on the anarchist utopia of Anarres. Hoping to find more freedom for his work and to leave behind jealous colleagues, he leaves his wife and children and moves to the planet Urras. Urras has two main states fighting for dominance-one capitalist and patriarchal, and the other proletariat. He is soon in the middle of a revolution and longing for home. 4⭐️ #2019

I really loved “Dark Matter” so the bar was high for “Recursion”. It did not disappoint. Just like “Dark Matter”, the thing I loved most was thought-provoking nature of Crouch‘s story. There are very few books that can cause one to consider both Church‘s lambda calculus and Kant‘s Transcendental Aesthetic over the span of a few pages.

Pedrocamacho I‘ve been thinking a lot lately about the advent of nuclear weapons and their usage. Would humans really be able to stop themselves from using the chair, even at the risk of their own destruction? I‘ve become less sanguine over the years. 1h
Pedrocamacho Also, I loved that the book was set in Colorado. “On The Road” comes to mind when I think of books where a substantial portion occurs in Colorado. My wife mentioned “The Shining”. Any other great books set in Colorado that I should be aware of? 1h

I had tried this as an ebook and I struggled I think because of pronunciation but as an audiobook it was wonderful. I may need to listen to the other two which would have increased my understanding. I loved that it was a different take on fantasy.
Book 13 of 16 for #bookfitnesschallenge. @wwanderinglynn

Megabooks My former boss was really into Star Wars, and before I‘d do a new surgery, he‘d always say, “There is no try.” The other girl I worked with there actually named her kids Luke and Leia!! 🤷🏻‍♀️😁 10h
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Megabooks 😂 That‘s great...and hey, if you‘re going to name you kids after fictional characters, those aren‘t too bad. I knew a Dartagnan once. 3h
