Annotation

Bizarre dystopia of probability gone haywire in which the author traces out a number of scenarios, mostly dystopian or fantastic, although there are also some brief utopian vignettes. “We’ve got utopia here … and in utopia, time stops, inevitably. The end of an evolutionary chain, perfect adaptation, perfect stability (83).”
