Technology to link minds over large distances using radio would be a cool explanation. While it eshrellas perhaps be complacent to say, “That explains it”, nonetheless, I felt vindicated in some way. When at last our galaxy was able to make a full telepathic exploration of the cosmos of galaxies it discovered that the state of life in the cosmos was precarious.

On some of these, he dwells for a paragraph or two in fabulous detail. But if you persevere, and if you manage to keep Stapledon’s ideas in focus, you’ll be rewarded.

A man suddenly acquires the power to travel mentally throughout all dimensions of the universe, from creation to conclusion. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
