    eBook Toh EnJoe î eBook Self Reference ENGINE eBook ↠ Self Reference eBook î coinfetti.co self free, reference pdf, engine kindle, Self Reference mobile, Self Reference ENGINE KindleThis is the sort of the book that will either blow your mind or leave you confused and annoyed Unfortunately I fall into the latter category Self Reference ENGINE is not a novel not an anthology; it is a SELF REFERENCE ENGINE What it is is very weird science fiction surrealism with a thin thread of I won't call it a plot like a theme or some common ideas running through disjointed chapters that sometimes refer to one another and sometimes seem dropped in at random from some other bookAt the heart of the book is the giant corpora of knowledge collections of artificial intelligences that exist in the future but became extinct in the past become uite upset to realize they don't actually exist triggered an Event that split the universe into an infinite number of realities and are visited by a star man named Alpha Centauri who tells them very politely that they are unfortunately a bit inconvenient and will need to be pushed out of the way I su

    eBook Toh EnJoe î eBook Self Reference ENGINE eBook ↠ Self Reference eBook î coinfetti.co self free, reference pdf, engine kindle, Self Reference mobile, Self Reference ENGINE KindleDivision of fractions; escape by eraser; befuddlement of symbiotic intelligences; this book romps through the broken shards of timespace which have been fractured irrevocably by the 'Event' A warped imagination underpins this mathematical fairy tale and creates delightful rabbit holes to stumble down into An alternative narrative loosely based on many different characters works admirably because of the unusual setting a universe that has been shattered into countless other universes of variable timespace dimensions with the ultimate goal of most of the characters being to try and restore the universe's timespace coordination to its normal working order A very good book clever mindbending and irreverent

Isn't that the great justification for volunteering ourselves to the genre ghetto for ignoring the Booker Prize winners and Nobel Laureates to focus on the Hugo Nebula and World Fantasy Award winners instead?But it's frustrating; for all this talk about science fiction being a genre of ideas there don't seem to be a whole lot of ideas going aroundEnter Toh EnJoe A physicist A novelist And not simply a science fiction novelist either Toh EnJoe has won accolades not only for his theoretically informed and highly imaginative

    eBook Toh EnJoe î eBook Self Reference ENGINE eBook ↠ Self Reference eBook î coinfetti.co self free, reference pdf, engine kindle, Self Reference mobile, Self Reference ENGINE KindleWow this is a book that demands a lot from the reader But there are some rewards for sticking with it It's not a traditional narrative at all It's like a series of short stories that have a narrative connection It's uite a mindbender and it's not like anything you've read beforeIf you want straight character and plot this is not the right book However if you want strange and new ideas this is a masterpiece The author clearly knows his science and infuses each chapter with interesting ideas and twists on our existing scientific knowledge So even though the story wasn't strong or was nearly non existent depending on how you look at

    eBook Toh EnJoe î eBook Self Reference ENGINE eBook ↠ Self Reference eBook î coinfetti.co self free, reference pdf, engine kindle, Self Reference mobile, Self Reference ENGINE KindleNot really a novel not really a short story collection but something in between A mosaic novel maybe? It doesn't really matter the point is that Self Reference Engine is this heady mix of hard SF and surrealism It takes the notion of the multiverse and pokes and prods at it until the very concept becomes both unremarkable and nonsensical Its also very funny
