GROUP HIGHLIGHT:

It means a special place in Milegu, where there isn't the normal cadence of Milegu. Ultimately, an exotic place of Milegu."they were the persecuted of time,"The Dussians were the main race that fight agains the Essence of Paranoia, Devourers, dem nutkiae, and the Army of Evil (comanded by the Xontassseslisz’nurom) in the final momments of Milegu."the final tool of complexity, teachers of geometry and causality,"The Dussians, with the help of other species, openned the Planes and they were also specialists in the Milegu (about its geometry and paradoxes)."but when the lava floes broke out among the stars around them, they realized that they were just tiny irregular bubbles within the mind of possibilities"The lava bursts refers when the Essence of Paranoia began to devour the Milegu, tearing apart the structures of the Planes and generating flows of ener

10) Fonemario dyssiano Fonemario dyssiano by Jakeukalane

BOOK CLUB:  Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake is arguably one of the most well written works of science fiction that has been published within the twenty-first century.  Although the narrative as a whole is not fit for a one-to-one book-to-movie conversion, a la The Hunger Games, Oryx and Crake nevertheless stands apart because of its relevance to contemporary bioethics, prodigious use of the English Language, and undeniable uniqueness of the plot.  In an age of multinational biotech corporations and fully synthetic organisms the story of Oryx and Crake is not only entertaining, but also quite important from the standpoint of moral writing.

QUESTIONS FOR THE READER:

1) Do you think that Oryx and Crake could have been better as a third person narrative?  If so, what other points of view would you utilize other than that of the main character?

2) Do you feel that Oryx and Crake accurately portrays the potential dangers associated with genetically modified organisms, or do you see the story as an exaggeration?

3) How did your experience with Oryx and Crake influence your development as a writer or artist?

4) Do you feel that there are any real world issues today that are currently being neglected/underutilized by science fiction as a genre?

Reminder:  Next quarter we will be discussing Caelum Lex fav.me/d5gro6q

OPaaT has a project-based submission policy fav.me/d5dhxa8

Can't accept the stuff you posted recently, but if OPaaT ever affiliates with a group that has your art in it I would be happy to include one of your images in the group highlight I do in the group journal.  Sorry for the confusion.
