Sci Fi and Related Genres

Any of my readers who have any interest in science fiction, horror, fantasy, or related fictional genre will soon find himself in love with this graphic.

And for those with an interest in mathematics, it ends up looking a bit like a Mandelbrot set!

The key plot of the meta-story is revealed in the legends along the top:
adventure dominant; science dominant; sociology dominant; form dominant; Star Wars dominant.

As even that much information conveys, we have a wild intermingling here of high and low brow.

But I'll say no more.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
