About 95% done with listening to The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu, and I could see the possibility of an endless, empty dark space. The Dark Forest is the second book in the trilogy series of Three Body. The beginning of this second book could be said a very slow start. It takes a big, boring slow start. Nonetheless, after a strange start, it turns into a brilliant sequel. The sequel keeps getting better as it approaches the near ending of the second book.
In this second book, space elevator, underground futuristic cities, space fleet, and various other science fiction kinds of stuff got introduced. Nonetheless, these cool sci-fi elements are only there to be the fillers, but the mother concept of it all is the sociology of cosmic civilizations. It is Lou Ji, the weirdest wall facer who is tapping the least amount of earth resources so far in both books — the first and the second book of Three Body trilogy — who thinks that sociology of cosmic civilizations is important even though the whole universe looks rather empty.
I don’t want to spoil the fun for you and so I won’t reveal much of the second book of Three Body trilogy, but just imagine the weirdness of seeing one of the main characters decides to study civilizations of space when space shows no sign of civilization besides the Trisolarans’ one. Furthermore, keep this strange bit in mind as you’re approaching the near 100% completion of listening to this book on Audible! For me, I almost agree with the understanding why Lou Ji is thinking in such a manner in the regards to creating a branch of education for the sociology of cosmic civilizations. It’s like studying a future when a future has not yet even sure to have existed.
In any case, I think I should stare into space at night time whenever I smoke my cigarette and appreciate why we are alone! After all, it’s quite peaceful to be thriving alone then having to “you know what” when you get the gist of the problems the humans are facing in Three Body trilogy. I think I’ve said enough just to almost not giving up the whole farm in regards to not wanting to spoil the fun for you. So, if you haven’t read or listened to the second book, I highly recommend you read or listen to the second book of Three Body trilogy. You can listen to this book on Audible.
