      It's a big plot point in the books, so don't read below if you don't want to be spoiled. Spoilers There are two big problems with the farcasters. One, the AIs use it to steal computing power from human brains whenever the humans teleport. The other is that using farcasters damage the Void Which Binds, a substructure of our universe which contains the memory of living things that have died. So using the technology actually erases memories.

  • Charles Dog

    At ~4:50 it's mentioned that the Ousters only used 'conventional' methods of space travel. I would hardly call the Hawking Drive conventional as it is described as skipping off the void which binds' (as to farcasters which punch holes) to travel FTL. The Ousters saw it as a necessary evil.

    That... Is not what evolution is about. Evolution is about adaptation, not progress - stability is not a "perversion of the natural order", and from Nature's perspective normal humans and Ousters are about equal - intelligent, highly adaptable creatures. Otherwise great video, as always! Your naration is awesome and I love to hear about classics of science fiction from you.

      @xensan76 But citizens of the Imperium aren't worse or lesser for staying in their perfectly fine corners of the universe and not engaging in transhumanism. Which this video in the end implied.

    • xensan76
      xensan76 7 ساعات قبل

      @Terézia Marková And you missed my point. If humanity is to survive far into the future, then it must adapt to the ultimate environment, space. Sure, we're more likely to exist long if we colonize multiple planets. But there's a limited number of inhabitable worlds in the universe. What the Ousters are doing is making themselves more evolutionarily fit and more likely to survive and reproduce past their terrestrial counterparts.

    • Terézia Marková
      Terézia Marková 7 ساعات قبل

      @xensan76 You missed the point entirely. What I was saying is that evolution is not about improvement, necessarily, but adjusting to the changing situation (be it environment, new threats or competitors). It's perfectly fine for an organism to stay the same for millions of years if it doesn't affect its ability to survive and reproduce. It isn't against the nature for Ousters to change themselves to better survive in certain conditions, but it isn't following some sort of nature law or whatnot either.

    • xensan76
      xensan76 7 ساعات قبل

      It is evolution if you believe the future of humanity is in space, not other planets. I bet that after we colonize the galaxy, we'll be more Ouster than Hegemony.

    Who are we to judge what it is to be human when the ephemeral spark of humanity is one independent of form or biology, independent of belief or creed. To simply live, and grow from the wellspring of life, like that of a tree, with its many branches and hollows. Is that not what it is to be human? I love the Foundation, Hyperion, and Dune series, not are they just work of lovely fiction that entertains, but they provoke many deep thoughts and beg the lessons of many questions. Sadly now I must find Audio Books of them due to failing eyesight, but I happily look forward to rereading them with my ears, so to tread thir grounds in a new way, and maybe stumble on new questions to ponder. Keep up the great work @IdeasOfIceAndFire.

    Thanks for mentioning Olaf Stapledon. A friend introduced me to his literature about 30 years ago. It is unfortunate that most people never heard of him. You could take one paragraph from one of his books and turn that paragraph into a book. I suspect many of the great sci-fi writers of the 20th century did exactly that.

    There’s a universe out there where instead of Avengers Endgame succeeding and Game Of Thrones Failing, Game Of Thrones is the one that succeeds and has a masterpiece of a final season and Endgame goes down as the worst movie of the decade. I would rather live in that universe than in this universe if I’m going to be honest

      Alana Wrisley a lot of people said “I can never watch Game Of thrones the same way anymore” and it’s true. That’s how big of an impact a final season can have. Here the thing Season 4 of breaking Bad was such a great finale that they literally could hav ended it there and people wouldn’t have been disappointed and it would’ve felt like a season finale but they decided to do the impossible and succeeded the fourth season and made the best season ever. The thing is, is if Breaking Bad Season 5 had ended badly people could just be like “Season 4 is the serie finale for me” and the show would still be great. Game of thrones couldn’t do that. There last few seasons were weak and horrible but we dealt through them cause we thought it was gonna be worth it in the end, unfortunately it wasn’t. You can’t just say “Season 7 was the ending or season 4 was ending for me” because it wouldn’t have felt complete and you wouldn’t be able to watch it the same. I probably sound like an idiot and I’m sorry. I agree with you though. Game of thrones has changed my life. I will forever be grateful for bringing me and my family closer and even though we knew Season 8 was going to shit I still enjoyed watching it with my family. It’s sad honestly because most people will never read the books so that was there ending. I hope one day they remake the series which would be awesome but u have to remember that there are certain characters like Sansa or Sam or Jorah could be played by others and not feel awkward but then there are characters like Joffrey and Jon snow and Ned and Daenerys and it will never feel the same.

    • Alana Wrisley

      Feel the same. I was borderline obsessed. Game of thrones changed my life. It brought me into fantasy, reading, stories ,huge stories, incredible characters and plots. And the show brought in the golden age of television. Hands down the greatest show of all time and it's goes down in many questions left unanswered. So many build up plots that ended up going nowhere, jon snow one of the greatest characters ever in my opinion ended up becoming someone else, a boring uninteresting character, stupid like all the characters. What was the point of his parentage?! I got the chills when we learned for sure about the parentage when it wasn't a theory anynore. When the baby transition to him older while hearing the promise Ned of my fav moments in tv. All the incredible prophecies I was waiting years for doesn't come. Jon doesn't defeat night king, Arya does who never was connected to the white walkers. Never even seen them. Dany my queen, who I was so divided on wanting to win the throne between the two until they came together for her character arc to go down to flames. Her being the big baddie and jon vs dany is something I thought would happen but the way they did it was so stupid. Only character arc that was impressive was Theons. And all the rest went to shit. Jamie had a great arc until the end. Wow I apologize I can sit here going on and on for hours . Man so sad. Dying for the prequels I know many say ain't gunna watch but I going to and hope for the best

    I know that you mainly focus on books. But there's a tv show called the Expanse which is a really good sci fi show. I like how the show displays the changes in which humanity goes through when venturing through space. It's not as expansive as Dune, Hyperion or the foundation but I like how even though when colonizing the solar system you can see the changes in classes and society. Might be something interesting to look into. Plus the show is based of the book series but I have never read the books so I can't tell if they are good or not.

      The books are excellent and you should really try reading them. The writers actually get a lot of creative input into the show, so it's very true to the books. However, they also change some things around to keep the show fresh in comparison, instead of just being a Cliff Notes version of the books.

    Random question, have you read any of the Warhammer books? The series is basically everything put up to 11, it is basically cheesy, macho, and badass and the book series for them are massive. For example, the Horus Heresy series is like 6-7 million words long which is longer than The Wheel of Time. Just wondering if you have read them, I guess they can be considered epic sci-fi.

      @Big Durk its really good. The characters are lovable and the pacing is enough to let you know the main players before any major plot happens.

    The problem is that the Ouster evolution is first physical and second if at all mental. Beyond that, for evolving they are the true humans.

    I had a feeling I'd love Ouster society. They have the right of it from where I sit. Free space and resources are abundant, if you'll only adapt to a new niche. Beautiful.

      @Martien van den Berg Not had the chance. Dune is under my belt, at 12 years old the first time. I've been into long sagas with deep world building ever since.

      @Blackguard I Don't know if you have read the expanse? But the faction of the belters would be the ancestors of the ousters.

      @Martien van den Berg That is a shame. I obviously agree with you, and am surprised that such a heavy hint was dropped without being followed up. Then again, that was a trend in older writing. Let the reader's imagination fill the gaps. Modern literature usually spells things out for you. Can't say I'm a fan of that.

      The only downside of the books is that they only give a little on the ousters. I have always wanted a book all on them.

      @Hrenml they moved from Netflix to Amazon prime, both the books and tv are phenomenal. One of the factions can be seen as the beginning of the ousters for the Hyperion books.

    Euron has no capacity for true sacrifice because of his psychopathy. The sacrifices with power behind them must come from oneself. A man who feels nothing for anyone else has nothing to give.

    I guess George felt he could take the concepts and flesh them out better on the big screen; which he did. Now we know why every one knows about Star Wars and few out of our 80's generation know about Dune. The video game was excellent.
