QuoteErgh, that 'doesn't register on my radar'...does that mesh with anyone?
Quote from: contracycleI don't think we can really play anything too remote from our own experience; we lose the capacity to identify with the character IMO.
Quote from: simon_hibbsThe problem I have with so-called 'transcended' beings is that I've yet to actualy hear a usable description of what 'transcended' actualy means. It seems to me that it's a self fulfilling prophecy. In fact as humans we have very little dificulty understanding many things are are completely different from us - machines, plants, insects, etc, etc. We can even construct theoretical models for completely alien beings, many SF writers have done so. The only cases in SF where I've come across 'uninteligible' beings is cases where the author simply decided to write about beings that are uninteligible. That hardly constitutes proof that we will actualy be unable to understand any beings we do encounter.
