VISIONS

 

 

OF

 

 

FUTURE

 

 

 

Different visions of future: visions of life and visons of death;

anticipations of next big problems; the eternal combat between good and evil; the fears of contemporary societies; the fear of the different; "the alien that is in us"; apocalyptic scenarios as a consequence of the artificial, the natural human; and dystopias, the negative utopias.

  • Philip K. Dick: "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", Del Rey, 1996.

The inspiration for the films Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049. By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back - with lethal force.

 

  • Frank Herbert: "Dune", Chilton Books; first edition in 1965; Penguin Classics, 2016.

Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange, a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness. Coveted across the known universe, melange is a prize worth killing for.... When House Atreides is betrayed, the destruction of Paul’s family will set the boy on a journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined. And as he evolves into the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib, he will bring to fruition humankind’s most ancient and unattainable dream.
