Frasi Brian Aldiss

„An overcrowded world is the ideal place in which to be lonely.“

—  Brian W. Aldiss, libro Super-Toys Last All Summer Long

Super-Toys Last All Summer Long (1969)

„She had tried to love him.“

—  Brian W. Aldiss, libro Super-Toys Last All Summer Long

Super-Toys Last All Summer Long (1969)

„AI, as they call it, is not going to be achieved by present-day machines."Artificial Intelligence" — that makes it sound simple, but what you're really talking about is artificial consciousness, AC.“

—  Brian W. Aldiss

Locus interview (2000)
Contesto: My wife Margaret and I sold our house to Sir Roger Penrose and his wife... Talking to Roger, I found we both agreed that AI, as they call it, is not going to be achieved by present-day machines."Artificial Intelligence" — that makes it sound simple, but what you're really talking about is artificial consciousness, AC. And I don't think there's any way we can achieve artificial consciousness, at least until we've understood the sources of our own consciousness. I believe consciousness is a mind/body creation, literally interwoven with the body and the body's support systems. Well, you don't get that sort of thing with a robot.

„There is only the pattern; the pattern is all the universe, creator and created.“

—  Brian W. Aldiss

“Old Hundredth” p. 162 (originally published in New Worlds Science Fiction #100, November 1960)
Short fiction, Who Can Replace a Man? (1965)
Contesto: When the first flint, the first shell, was shaped into a weapon, that action shaped man. As he molded and complicated his tools, so they molded and complicated him. He became the first scientific animal. And at last, via information theory and great computers, he gained knowledge of all his parts. He formed the Laws of Integration, which reveal all beings as part of a pattern and show them their part in the pattern. There is only the pattern; the pattern is all the universe, creator and created.

„The house was a rambling affair. It had few windows, and such as there were did not open, were unbreakable and admitted no light.“

—  Brian W. Aldiss, libro Outside

Outside (1955)
Contesto: The house was a rambling affair. It had few windows, and such as there were did not open, were unbreakable and admitted no light. Darkness lay everywhere; illumination from an invisible source followed one's entry into a room — the black had to be entered before it faded. Every room was furnished, but with odd pieces that bore little relation to each other, as if there was no purpose for the room. Rooms equipped for purposeless beings have that air about them.

„When the first flint, the first shell, was shaped into a weapon, that action shaped man. As he molded and complicated his tools, so they molded and complicated him.“
