The non-halting halting problem
- Nothing really matters
This was a huge let-down of a book from one of my favorite authors. It is bleak, nihilistic, miserablism, an ode to the idea that humanity should Just Stay Home. It's like the optimistic, visionary authour of "The Memory of Whiteness" and "2312" was replaced by a boderline AI made up of bits of the old KSR melded with the ghost of Michael Crichton. My sincere hope is that this book is an aberration, and that KSR's next will be another masterpiece like "The Years of Rice and Salt", or at least a bit of intriguing entertainment like "Shaman".
