The Lurker and The Original Universe | Three Body Problem Series

The Three-Body Problem series is one of the best trilogies of science fiction books that Iโ€™ve read in recent years, but in this video, we will be discussing its spinoff, Redemption of Time. Redemption of Time was written by Baoshu, and continues the storyline of the Three-Body Problem universe. It mainly follows the character Tianming, the only character in the original series to ever make direct contact with the Trisolarans. Redemption of Time describes his time among the Trisolarans and how he was visited by a powerful entity that gave him knowledge about the nature of the universe. In this video, we will mainly discuss the nature of the original universe and how it began to collapse. In Redemption of Time we learned that the original, 10-dimensional universe before it began to collapse was constructed upon energy exchange between photons, it was a universe of light.

The Dark Secrets of The Universe | The Lie Behind the Star

The universe is incomprehensibly vast. Earth is an unprotected bubble surrounded in infinite cosmic emptiness. Within that darkness, that eternal blackness who knows what might wait, and what eventually might call out to us. The Lie Behind The Star, follows the Waanzilishi, a civilization who deep within caverns of the earth discovered strange pulsating mushrooms, mushrooms which they grew to understand were actually reacting to something remote, very remote. The bioluminescent mushrooms were somehow responding to a distant signal from outer space, undetectable through normal means. The consumption of the Mushrooms brought visions of the cosmos, a wealth of outside knowledge. At night under the influence of the mushrooms they would dance wildly beneath the earth illuminated by the thousands upon thousands of pulsating fungi, filled with the music of the universe. As time went on the attachment between the Waanzilishi and the mushrooms grew stronger. Some among them claimed that they could themselves hear the call of the signal, which they named the Kimora. In time three children would be born, The Waanzilishi, using what they have learned, changed the children somehow, made them a part of the fungal network, they became, The Three Who Are One. By directly linking into the fungal network they could manipulate it, initiate its growth, use it to produce chemicals, and biological substances of all kinds. The Three Who are One were granted by the fungus near unending life, around them eventually grew an immense city all formed from the biological matter of the fungus. It was said that the Three Who are One could hear the Kimora at all times, that their purpose was guided by the Kimora and the Kimora alone. The Waanzilishi prospered and grew, advancing themselves, technologically, philosophically, and intellectually whilst simultaneously the Kimora took on heavily mystical and religious significance. Many believe that the Kimora, was the voice of a Goddess, that the Waanzilishi were her chosen people. To the Waanzilishi, the Adjeki, the outsiders played no role, they were not chosen by Kimora. Eventually it became the mission of the Waanzilishi to find their goddess. The Three who are one declared that those who heard the Kimora most strongly would be taken as children and trained for a mission, a mission they may never return from, aboard a biological vessel they would leave the earth, and seek her out.

The Horror of Eternal Consciousness | The Jaunt

The Horror of Eternal Consciousness | The Jaunt

The Jaunt by Stephen King is a short story set sometime around the year 2300. By this time humankind has begun the colonization of our solar system, this was made possible by a world changing piece of technology invented in the 80s, the Jaunt. The word โ€œJauntโ€ was first used in Alfred Besterโ€™s 1956 science fiction novel, The Stars My Destination. In this novel humans have access to personal teleporters, teleporting was referred to as Jaunting in this novel. Stephen King takes the idea of the Jaunt and twists it into something, not merely dark but horrifying beyond comprehension. The idea of teleportation has been common in science fiction for many decades, and the fears associated with it are not unexplored. Cronenberg's famous, The Fly explores the horror of a teleportation experiment gone wrong in which the main character's DNA is accidentally mixed with an insect. Teleporters have featured prominently in Star Trek since its original release in 1965, and itโ€™s still never been fully clear if the teleporters allow for a consciousness stream of consciousness or if they are simply killing the original person and rematerializing an exact copy with copied memories in a different place. The Jaunt also considers what becomes of the consciousness during teleportation but in a different way. To understand you have to learn how the Jaunt was first invented in this story, by a man named Victor Carune. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Please consider supporting this channel on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ideasoficeandfire or PAYPAL - https://paypal.me/QuinnsIdeas?locale.x=en_US ๐ŸŽจ Art: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/klw13z https://www.deviantart.com/claytonbarton/art/Dormant-Ark-LEF-Scientist-Rickon-Hyde-386313466 ๐ŸŽต Music: https://www.youtube.com/@JamezDahlMusic ๐Ÿ“š Get These Books! https://amzn.to/3QOhtfr Quinn's Discord: https://discord.gg/uGx4WsjVCZ FOLLOW QUINN ON TWITTER: Twitter: https://twitter.com/IDEASOFICE_FIRE I NOW HAVE A SUBREDDIT: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdeasofIceandFire/ Quinn's New Graphic Novel: https://www.quinnhoward.net/theliebehindthestar Buy Quinn's Comic Books: https://www.quinnhoward.net/shop Quinn's Website: https://www.quinnhoward.net Like me on Facebook!: https://www.facebook.com/IOIAF ๐ŸŽฅ Mentioned Videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_T0Faf8lvhg ๐ŸŽฌ Other Playlist Three-Body Playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRXGGVBzHLUfIzEhovpQJ2ENiNvJoOD2A H.P.

The Wallfacers | Three Body Problem Series

Liu Cixinโ€™s Remembrance of Earthโ€™s Past trilogy is one of the most compelling modern sci-fi series in my opinion. If you like science fiction that really zooms out and drives its speculative ideas out literally to the end of time then this is probably the series for you. Now I of course have several videos covering several aspects of the series but in this video, we will get to a topic that has been requested for a very long time and that is the Wallfacers, and the Wallbreakers. Now obviously if you have not read the series this video is gonna be full of spoilers, although most of it would probably go over your head anyway, but if you have read the books, or at least seen my previous videos, or if you just donโ€™t care about spoilers then feel free to continue forward. This video makes an error by omission. This was an oversight, and I won't let something like this happen again, but mistakes in scripting and editing occur at times. I take full responsibility for this error. The final part of Wallfacer Frederick Tyler's Plan would have been to detonate bombs to destroy the Trisolaran fleet and ETO, this final part was missing from my script and from the video and somehow I missed this in the editing process. I apologize for this mistake.

The Language Virus | Snow Crash

The Language Virus | Snow Crash

The 1980s saw the birth of a new genre of science fiction, cyberpunk. William Gibson's "Neuromancer" ignited the spark, laying the foundation for a genre that would captivate the minds of readers and influence countless films, video games, and artworks. But every journey has its destination, and as we explore the vast landscape of cyberpunk literature, we discover that Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash" marks a crucial turning point โ€“ the genre's pinnacle of development and the birth of a new element: satirical cyberpunk. "Neuromancer," a groundbreaking novel, introduced us to a world of hacking, virtual reality, and corporate control. It ushered in an era of gritty protagonists navigating through labyrinthine networks, confronting powerful entities, and questioning the boundaries between humanity and machines. The genre had taken its first steps, setting the tone for what would come next. Over time, cyberpunk flourished and evolved, weaving its way into the collective consciousness. A multitude of works explored the theme of technology's dark side, portraying futuristic dystopias filled with hackers, cyborgs, and mega-corporations. However, as the genre matured, its tropes became familiar, and its themes often echoed each other, leading some to believe that cyberpunk had exhausted its creative potential. And so, as the cyberpunk landscape reached its apex, "Snow Crash" in 1992 emerged on the scene. Neal Stephenson's satirical masterpiece provided a refreshing twist, signaling the genre's evolution into new territory. Satire, with its sharp wit and keen observations, became the tool of choice for Stephenson to dissect and critique the world he envisioned. As we journey alongside Hiro Protagonist and Y.T., we encounter a cyberpunk setting that deliberately exaggerates the genre's elements, creating a vibrant, almost cartoonish world that is both familiar and absurd. In "Snow Crash," we witness a society where corporate power and virtual realities intertwine, where information becomes a weapon and linguistics hold divine significance. Stephenson uses humor and irony to shine a light on society's absurdities and the dangers of unchecked technology, while still paying homage to the core cyberpunk ethos. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Please consider supporting this channel on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ideasoficeandfire or PAYPAL - https://paypal.me/QuinnsIdeas?locale.x=en_US The Podcast: https://cosmicchronicles.buzzsprout.com/ ๐ŸŽจ Art: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FSyFths_nXrLukvql0ao3RcTN4IIYQjFn13g7tZsbXU/edit?usp=sharing ๐ŸŽต Music: https://www.youtube.com/@JamezDahlMusic ๐Ÿ“š Get These Books! https://amzn.to/441ztGz7&sr=8-1 Quinn's Discord: https://discord.gg/uGx4WsjVCZ FOLLOW QUINN ON TWITTER: Twitter: https://twitter.com/IDEASOFICE_FIRE I NOW HAVE A SUBREDDIT: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdeasofIceandFire/ Quinn's New Graphic Novel: https://www.quinnhoward.net/theliebehindthestar Buy Quinn's Comic Books: https://www.quinnhoward.net/shop Quinn's Website: https://www.quinnhoward.net Like me on Facebook!: https://www.facebook.com/IOIAF ๐ŸŽฅ Mentioned Videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGW_7HTXuQo&t=1051s ๐ŸŽฌ Other Playlist Three-Body Playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRXGGVBzHLUfIzEhovpQJ2ENiNvJoOD2A H.P.

Neuromancer: The Origin of Cyberpunk | A Horrifying Dystopia

Even if you are not familiar with Neuromancer by William Gibson you still technically have seen it, this is the case with many groundbreaking works of science fiction because tropes invented in books like Neuromancer have become standard in science fiction since, especially within the genre we now know as cyberpunk. Neuromancer is undeniably one of the most influential works of science fiction ever crafted. Credited with establishing the cyberpunk genre, alongside Ridley Scott's 1982 film Blade Runner, Gibson's masterpiece diverges from the far-future or galactic settings often explored in science fiction. Instead, it unfolds on Earth in the not-too-distant future, capturing a time when society grapples with the relentless pandemonium resulting from rapid technological and cultural changes and advancements. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Please consider supporting this channel on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ideasoficeandfire or PAYPAL - https://paypal.me/QuinnsIdeas?locale.x=en_US The Podcast: https://cosmicchronicles.buzzsprout.com/ ๐ŸŽจ Art: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GIX4e2zdvHj41xCtKLe0LUSIgS91jvR9v4xPojAzX9g/edit?usp=sharing ๐ŸŽต Music: https://www.youtube.com/@JamezDahlMusic ๐Ÿ“š Get These Books! https://amzn.to/3pEjqAA Quinn's Discord: https://discord.gg/uGx4WsjVCZ FOLLOW QUINN ON TWITTER: Twitter: https://twitter.com/IDEASOFICE_FIRE I NOW HAVE A SUBREDDIT: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdeasofIceandFire/ Quinn's New Graphic Novel: https://www.quinnhoward.net/theliebehindthestar Buy Quinn's Comic Books: https://www.quinnhoward.net/shop Quinn's Website: https://www.quinnhoward.net Like me on Facebook!: https://www.facebook.com/IOIAF ๐ŸŽฅ Mentioned Videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bURTbf4jKAs ๐ŸŽฌ Other Playlist Three-Body Playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRXGGVBzHLUfIzEhovpQJ2ENiNvJoOD2A H.P.

The War at the Beginning of Time | Revelation Space

Alastair Reynolds' Revelation Space series stands as a masterpiece within the realm of space opera, captivating readers with its expansive world-building and mind-bending science fiction concepts. In this video, we embark on a deep exploration of yet another intriguing concept from this seriesโ€”an enigma that delves into the early stages of cosmic civilization within the vast expanse of the universe. Brace yourself as we unravel the mysterious origins of an ancient race of lifeforms, whose existence now lingers only in the form of scattered machines spanning the galaxy, designed with one sole and devastating purpose. However, I must issue a word of caution: this video contains some significant spoilers for the intricate lore of the Revelation Space Saga. If you are averse to having any aspect of this captivating series spoiled for you, I implore you to click away. However, if spoilers don't deter you or if you have already delved into the gripping narrative of at least the first book, then join me on this journey of discovery. Let us embark upon our odyssey by delving into the very fabric of the universe itself. In the cosmic overture, there existed the singularityโ€”a point of infinite density that held within it the entirety of existence. In an awe-inspiring instant, a matter of โ€œplankโ€ time, this singularity expanded exponentially, swiftly encompassing the size of our solar system and then spiraling outward to encompass the entirety of our galaxy. As this cosmic symphony unfolded, particles of matter and antimatter were released, engaging in a cataclysmic dance of annihilation upon collision. Yet, in the cosmic scales of fate, matter emerged triumphant, for it possessed a slight advantage over its antimatter counterpart, that being that there was simply slightly more matter than antimatter. Thus, the surviving matter laid the foundations for the intricate tapestry of our universe, persisting through the eons to the present day. This primal clash of matter and antimatter marked the genesis of the first warโ€”a conflict that reverberated throughout the corridors of time. However, the universe is not solely a stage for astrophysics; it holds much more within its vast tapestry. Within the pages of the Revelation Space series, we learn of the Dawn Warโ€”a conflict of unprecedented magnitude that reverberated across the Milky Way galaxy. No galactic war in the billion years that followed could ever hope to rival its monumental scale and profound impact. The Dawn War extended its vast tendrils across countless civilizations, stretching its shadowy grip to encompass myriad worlds. Its ferocious embrace endured for an inconceivable span of time, leaving no involved party unscathed and many civilizations entirely erased from existence. As the cosmic sands of time ebbed and flowed, an uncountable number of beings and cultures were lost to the eternal obscurity of forgotten history. ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Please consider supporting this channel on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ideasoficeandfire or PAYPAL - https://paypal.me/QuinnsIdeas?locale.x=en_US ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ The New Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gGFeUtuzPE&t=6s ๐ŸŽจ Art: ๐ŸŽต Music: https://www.youtube.com/@JamezDahlMusic ๐Ÿ“š Get These Books! https://amzn.to/4441cHp Quinn's Discord: https://discord.gg/uGx4WsjVCZ FOLLOW QUINN ON TWITTER: Twitter: https://twitter.com/IDEASOFICE_FIRE I NOW HAVE A SUBREDDIT: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdeasofIceandFire/ Quinn's New Graphic Novel: https://www.quinnhoward.net/theliebehindthestar Buy Quinn's Comic Books: https://www.quinnhoward.net/shop Quinn's Website: https://www.quinnhoward.net Like me on Facebook!: https://www.facebook.com/IOIAF ๐ŸŽฅ Mentioned Videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Em5gZ5T5KwM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjoICDmv4oM ๐ŸŽฌ Other Playlist Three-Body Playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRXGGVBzHLUfIzEhovpQJ2ENiNvJoOD2A H.P.

Dune: The Emperor's Weakness

In the Dune Universe the power of the padishah emperor Shaddam the IV rests on his wealth, his influence in the Landsraad, and his Sardaukar army. The emperor is one of the most powerful individuals in the known universe. His wealth comes from the fact that his house, the house of Corrino, holds a majority of shares in the Choam company, also known as the Combine Honnete Ober Advancer Mercantiles. Choam company facilitates all interstellar sales in the galaxy, this essentially meant that Choam controlled the sale of spice and the emperor got a hefty portion of each sale. The Landsraad, of course, was made up of the Great Houses of the Imperium, this included, House Atreides, House Harkonnen, and others, the emperor was at the head of the Landsraad. He had the sole power to grant and remove fiefdoms of the planets throughout the imperium. Earlier in the book Dune House Atreides is given the fiefdom over Arrakis at the command of the emperor. The Sardaukar themselves were known to be some of the most brutal warriors in the galaxy. Their strength came from the harsh realities of the planet in which they were trained, a prison world known as Salusa Secundus. The world had a degree of hostility comparable to the world of Arrakis. All of these elements contributed to the emperor's power, His wealth, his military, his influence. But what are the emperor's weaknesses? ๐Ÿ‘ฝ Please consider supporting this channel on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ideasoficeandfire or PAYPAL - https://paypal.me/QuinnsIdeas?locale.x=en_US ๐ŸŽจ Art: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-DoVX1YW0Rw7uGW06pcwSm3DWHENWqnXHNjAlf8KMtQ/edit?usp=sharing ๐ŸŽต Music: https://www.youtube.com/@JamezDahlMusic ๐Ÿ“š Get These Books! https://amzn.to/3AQ0aSs Quinn's Discord: https://discord.gg/uGx4WsjVCZ FOLLOW QUINN ON TWITTER: Twitter: https://twitter.com/IDEASOFICE_FIRE I NOW HAVE A SUBREDDIT: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdeasofIceandFire/ Quinn's New Graphic Novel: https://www.quinnhoward.net/theliebehindthestar Buy Quinn's Comic Books: https://www.quinnhoward.net/shop Quinn's Website: https://www.quinnhoward.net Like me on Facebook!: https://www.facebook.com/IOIAF ๐ŸŽฅ Mentioned Videos ๐ŸŽฌ Other Playlist Three-Body Playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRXGGVBzHLUfIzEhovpQJ2ENiNvJoOD2A H.P.
