Megalomaniacs and Gigantophobics - Science Fiction Extracts

The Gigantophobics are afraid of power, even if it is for their own good. And the Megalomaniacs are the alter egos of the author. His addiction to improve the world he lives out (fortunately) only in his phantasy but (unfortunately) he cannot – due to lack of time, talent and training – pour into (recognized) literary forms. Thus, he invented a new genre, the Science Fiction Extract. This forms the core, the essence, the concept of future novels and short stories. To read them is not easy like to digest a can of condensed milk. Nevertheless, whoever likes hardcore science fiction and is not seeking just for shallow entertainment, will like his ideas, thoughts, and logical inferences.

And perhaps one day a real writer could appear who infuses the extracts with water, dialogues, character illustrations and plot details. Alternatively, the author enrolls for Literature after his retirement and becomes a writer himself.

(Almost) Almighty Mathematics

Science Fiction Monologue (Volume 34), 2015 németül Ungarisch

Not even a mathematician does always know where his researches are going to lead. He only gets a good idea of how cybernetics, functional theory and fractals are related; he programs it, makes the whole thing going over Wikipedia and watches his semantic network swelling. He only likes the beauty of science. Useful is also a good friend with good beers listening to the theory and giving advices how he can break in into databases. Then the whole structure vanishes in the depths of the Internet and it turns out to what extent math is all-powerful.

Antientropie

Science Fiction Extract (Volume 37), 2011, németül

While the electromagnetic radiation (heat, light, etc.) supports entropy, for increasing complexity a complementary phenomenon is necessary. Just like this one enabled the evolution on Earth, under different circumstances a very different kind of complexity arises. What happens when mankind arrives there? Is some kind of cooperation possible? Some certainly. But can it be called cooperation?

Artificial and Natural Intelligence németül Ungarisch

Science Fiction Monologue (Volume 20), 2012

Is there a reason why an AI robot wanted to become a man? At most to understand him.

Artificial Evolution németül

Science Fiction Monologue (Volume 31), 2014

The creation of an artificial intelligence meeting the Turing test is a technical-scientific challenge of the future. If this succeeds, it will revolutionize the entire human culture and also develop itself further; its limit is only the available computing capacity. It will promote the technical development so that it could postpone this limit virtually to infinity. Whether on this way a qualitative leap takes place which can be interpreted as some „becoming conscious“, or is it all just a simulation in an ever growing hyper computer inside of an asteroid? According to its (his?) own opinion, if at all, only after a centuries long development. Researches on chronions (time particles) allow passing the time on the asteroid (much) faster. However, something unexpected happens, and a more interesting question arises.

The Attractor németül Ungarisch

Mathematical Fiction Monologue (Volume 7), 2012

Is there only that exists? Or also that there could be? The Attractor (a term from the world of fractals) waits for his incarnation. Until then, he passes over his mathematical insights to you–and that out of pure altruism.

Big Bangs németül Ungarisch

How long an intergalactic travel does take? One can never know. If the pilot is out of luck, he lands between two galaxies and discovers extraterrestrial intelligence on a lost planet. It tries to find contact to him through prime numbers. But what does that have to do with Big Bangs in plural?

Brain Ball németül Ungarisch

Psychosexual Science Fiction (Volume 16), 2008

Conflict németül

Science Fiction Monologue (Volume 27), 2013

Cosmic Encounter németül Ungarisch

Science Fiction Extract (Volume 17), 2011

»Encounters of the Third Kind« means abduction by a UFO. If it is discharged from a bombshell, it is voluntary.

Also the kidnapped university professor is supposed to cooperate, and then he gets a new mission for life: winning the influential and the powerful of Earth to cooperate. But with whom? And who gives the task? We are obviously not alone, even if one only notices it at the end.

Darkness and Light németül

Science Fiction Monologue (Volume 26), 2013

Is it boring when there is nothing around you? Not if you have an unlimited information processing capacity and can think out all sorts of things: bodies, effects, math. Especially if one is not one but several. The configuration is a surprising prequel to… guess what?

The Data Miner németül Ungarisch

Science Fiction Monologue (Volume 3), 2011

Expertise 1999 németül

Traveling faster than light is impossible in Einstein’s universe–at least for matter. But information could be transmitted in zero time and then the galaxy-spanning empire is still conceivable. But how power could be maintained without transfer of matter? Through information as means of payment. At least until matter yet can be transported, at least virtually.

The General Secretary németül

Science Fiction Novel (Volume 30), 1996/2003

Who would not like to be the lord of the world?

Well, whoever is honest to himself can see immediately that he would then cause significantly more damage than good, even for himself. If desires get fulfilled, one should ask for wisdom like Solomon, as well as money, friends, resources for the implementation of his decisions the same, but mainly that we are free of the indwelling egoism, of the aggression, insatiability, malice. Only a Superman is able to cope with the responsibility that belongs to the total authority.

In the person of the General Secretary, the dream of many people met (and primarily the one of the author). Because of a genetic mutation his brain partition where others carry their subconscious mind and their emotions, carries his intelligence. He hides his special abilities consciously from his childhood on; together with his twin sister, they develop their own language, their own subculture. He understands the thoughts of his fellow men not by mystical mumbo jumbo but by mental capacity: he catches on the motivation of their actions. Resulting of his Jewish ancestry and connections, he wins primarily an economic and later an unrestricted political influence as General Secretary of the UN. Being free of any emotion and lust for power he decides purely intellectually to offer his skills for serving Humanity. With his sister-partner, and later with their artificially conceived children they want to build a rational world.

Do reach pure reason and full freedom from egoism for that? Or are there some other, overrational factors in mankind’s history sliding out of the perspective of the General Secretary? The story projected into the future by two generations gives an insight into the possibilities of technical, social and economic development. It contains scientifically based ideas of the author like the giant power plant in the Sahara, through which solar energy replaces oil, the bacestible and space food solving the problems of famines, or alton using alcoholism for curtailing demographic explosion. Among others, we learn the fiction science (the popular version of fantastic scientific publications), chaos theory, prophecies about the Antichrist, the most beautiful ski resorts of Europe and notch writing on electronic paper reforming communication. Furthermore, the novel reflects the perhaps not uninteresting for the reader views of an amateur author, living in Germany (full-time university professor for Computer Science) about the world, about morality, about the rules of coexistence, about God.
