I love the way David Brin takes his ideas and knowledge and weaves it all into stories that let me soak up the knowledge and explore the ideas subconsciously while I’m consciously following the characters and the trajectory of their adventures and challenges.
I thought I would love his essays that just distill it all down to the main points, but I’ve always seemed to get lost among references I can’t quite keep up with when reading his essays and I’m finding the same experience here. It reminds me of sitting in on a lecture for a class with prerequisites I haven’t done yet - I have a lot of background catching up to do before I can get much out of these.
I’ll go back to reading the science fiction for now where the assimilation process is more gradual. If an image can replace a thousand words, a well crafted story can replace a thousand essays.
