    Cosmic PTSDShell shock was a condition of the First World War battle fatigue of the Second but the condition we now know as PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder, was unknown and undefined after those conflicts Each is a distinct syndrome befitting the circumstances of the time, including the prevailing technology And I think there s a good case to be made that the literature of each period created the ability to differentiate each development Specifically I think Lem invented PTSD and Return From the Stars is his diagnostic guide to the condition PTSD is of course stress related and occurs primarily through the experience of extended periods of life threatening activities, particularly but not exclusively warfare PTSD has several distinctive symptoms which differentiate the condition from other sorts of combat induced stress It need not involve physical injury or acute deprivation, for example Individuals may be materially well cared for yet suffer intensely through the loss of comrades and the profound psychic dislocation or acting in an alien environment It is also not typically a ...

    Holy cyberspace, robotics and zero gravity Stanislaw Lem took me completely by surprise with his 1961 novel of American astronaut Hal Bregg s returning to Earth 127 years into the future I was expecting the acclaimed Polish author s time traveler to be another introverted nerd like Ijon Tichy He s anything but exceptionally tall, rugged, muscular, athletic, Hal is an American adventurer along the lines of Indiana Jones Likewise, I was anticipating the focus of the novel to revolve exclusively around futuristic science, technology and culture Return From the Stars is all that but something a tale of passion, intrigue and, most unexpectedly, a love story We follow Hal as he recounts dozens of his intriguing encounters and discoveries to list several airplane seats expanding into egg shaped cocoons as a way of providing the ultimate in privacy to my mind, a splendid invention , a woman wearing a dress with large peacock eyes that blink, an airport terminal smelling like a thousand...

    A pretty haunting portrayal of a utopia which is really a dystopia, putting it in the same sphere as Brave New World , written 30 years before Hal Bregg is a space navigator who has just returned from a trip to a nearby star system He has been through hell on his long, heroic mission to look for alien life and new knowledge of the universe, the dangers of which took the lives of several of his comrades Because of relativity, his 10 year journey corresponds to some 127 years of Earth time It feels ironic that his quest to find intelligent aliens succeeds in a strange way the aliens he struggles to comprehend are the new humans occupying his home world At first Hal can t help but admire how there is no war or violent crime in global society he is now a citizen of Medical advances have garnered long, disease free lives for humans A plethora of robots take care of much of the drudgery of work A conquering of gravity and inertia makes routine travel about the globe by very fast automated vehicles both free and safe Hal seems to make friends among the intelligent, gregarious people he meets But soon Hal begins to feel worthless and depressed over his inability to adapt to this society First of all they have no interest in his journey, so the sacrifices of his crew go unrecognized The people have been modified during development by a treatm...

    I cannot rate this book as I absolutely loathed it I didn t like the main character Hal Bregg who has returned to earth after 127 years, even though only ten biological years have passed for him.The book seemed to be all over the place The procedure known as betrization completely threw me until I eventualy found out what it meant No books in bookshops insane robots and then finally Hal falls in love with Eri and well that was the end of the ...

    I generally adore Stanislaw Lem, but what the shitting shit hell is this A man returns from a cosmic voyage, over a century has passed on Earth and so of course the culture is entirely different And the sticking point with him is that people have voluntarily decreased their aggression, so that there is no murder, rape, assault, or war True, he can see the benefit of it but what about boxing There s no real sport left And really the main problem is now you can t just acquire a woman So his reaction is to forcibly kiss one lady, then go batshit insane another poor soul, decide that he s in love with her or something, and basically abduct her and coerce her into staying with him Yes, he somehow realizes days later that maybe,...

    I m not sure what to think of Return From The Stars At times I liked it and at other times I felt indifferent to it Nothing jumps out as bad, exactly The novel follows the main character, Hal, through the hardships of returning to Earth from a deep space exploration after nearly 130 years only ten to him And, of course, the world has changed and he goes through this huge cultural shock and people see that he s different straight away and he can t adjust so he goes on vacation after like two days back on Earth Mind you, none of this is his fault or anyone else s fault and nobody s mistreating him because maltreatment no longer exists because people are chemically altered at birth to be non aggressive And the whole story until the end stems from this So there s no antagonist, as such Just a bunch of conversations where he can t get across what he s thinking and he can t really grasp what anyone else is saying, although they re all nodding at one another like Yeah, I think I get your meaning Slowly he adjusts to or does better at hiding from society, which is, again, not clear He also wrestles with all these demons from his pas...

    The middle of the last century the time of dystopias, every thoughtful science fiction writer considered it to be his obligation to write one Return from the Stars is a mutiny against the total conformity and insipid living in the entirely uniform society Beneath a dome supported by cracked, crumbling columns stood a woman, as though she had been waiting for me I saw her face now, the flow of sparks in the diamond disks that hid her ears, the white in the shadow, sil...
