Synopsis

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”– Arthur C Clarke.

But what is magic? Is there someone who should be given the power to wield it and how? The scientific approach is to start by quantifying what one is talking about. In effect, a probe into the condition of sufficiency of advancement. But of what? Man? His thinking? His philosophical outlook on life?
In this collection of science fiction stories, you may find answers to this, and more.

Anders Brink, in his debut collection explores the issue whether man is sufficiently advanced in his thinking and morals, to deal with the tremendous advances in technology.
