Cudromachd Ficsean-Saidheans

O chionn ghoirid, thachair mi ris a’ bhideo seo le Iain M. Banks is e a’ bruidhinn mu dheidhinn ficsean-saidheans. ’S fhiach e a’ bhideo air fad a choimhead, ach is fìor thoil leam an earrann seo [1.30 a-steach]:

I’ve said for years that I think science fiction is the most important genre because it is the only one that deals quite specifically with the effects of change, both on an individual and a society level, and that has mattered very fundamentally since the Industrial Revolution. Until the Industrial Revolution, people tended to die in the same society as they’d been born into. […] Once the Industrial Revolution hit, suddenly, no one who lived a normal lifespan died in the same society they were born into. […] It’s the shock of the new, the shock of change, that science fiction deals with. And a lot of the time it doesn’t live up to this high standard, and I don’t think that my SF necessarily does all the time either, but in a sense, it has that unique capability amongst genre that it deals with something very important and that is effecting us all the time, and increasingly.

Tha mi air a bhith a’ meòrachadh air a’ bheachd sin: nach bàsaich sinn anns an aon chomann anns a rugadh sinn, agus a’ smaoineachadh air mo bheatha fhèin, cho diofraichte ’s a tha cùisean bhon a bha mi nam bhalach òg, cho mòr ’s a dh’atharraich an comann againn ann an dìreach dà fhichead is beagan bhliadhnaichean, chan ann a-mhàin a thaobh teicneòlas, ach cuideachd, a thaobh ideòlas agus sructar ar comainn. Bidh mi a’ smaoineachadh orm fhìn mar chuideigin reusanta sùbailte agus adhartach, ach fhathast, bidh astar a chaochlaidh gam fhàgail aig muir aig amannan. Agus mar a thuirt Banks, tha an caochladh seo a’ sìor luathachadh.
