“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

Really cool concept and amazing characters!! 😍😍

The plot wasn't the best though. It was kind of just like a series of scenes that didn't fit together. Like a movie maybe?? I would LOVE to see a movie adaptation

Overall a solid and diverse retelling of King Arthur! (in outer space!!) 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Illuminae | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

🌿 Illuminae is a beautiful and GUT-WRENCHING book. It was the perfect mash-up of sci-fi, horror, comedy and romance. It‘s a novel about what it means to be human, it encompasses what it‘s like to have everything taken away from you, what it‘s like to be broken time and time again, to love, to hope and to have the desperation to survive. I laughed, I cried and the space zombies freaked me out. 🌿
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I warned y'all Serena was a dummy bitch! I never trusted her for a second. And look, she did June dirty just like I knew she would. These hos ain't loyal!
What do you guys think of this season so far, though? I'm glad I decided to watch it and that its less graphically rape-y. But if Canada sends that baby back to Gilead I'm gonna flush all my maple syrup down the toilet! 🤬

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. 56m
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? 51m
