Philosophical science fiction.
Science Fiction of a somewhat different kind... The book 'Forgotten Realities' by M.J.Rumyantsev is a sequel to 'VI Seconds’, a new collection of science fiction short stories and philosophical essays.

In ‘VI Seconds’ one of the characters asks a very simple question, which retains its relevancy even in our time:

” ‘Who are we then, oh Master; what are we?’

‘As much as it hurts me to say this to you, my dear friends – I do not know, I really no longer know...’, answered Kah the Wise absentmindedly, which was quite unusual for him. “

‘Forgotten Realities’ gives a possible, even plausible answer to the above question.

Excerpt from the book’s Epilogue

Any two-dimensional structure, including this book, cannot possibly express adequately the splendour of objects and structures existing in higher dimensions. It can only approximate them – to an extent. Our minds can then perhaps be used in order to compensate for this ‘2-D cannot adequately reflect and depict structures in n-D’ limitation, but they too are bound by the dimensional enclosure we exist in. Yes, they too are feeble. The best one can do and hope for is to make yet another drawing on the walls of the cave (in the cognitive sense of the word) we call ‘life’, as one goes through one of its gangways, trying to paint on its walls one’s own impressions of ‘how it all really might be in n-D’. This book is one of such drawings.

The concept of multiple layered containers of realities is probably what our esteemed reader should take with him. Whilst we may not agree with the conclusions made by one of the book’s main charters, namely that these multiverse containers are by definition morals-neutral and unrelated to the concepts of good and bad (i.e. that they just are and may contain anything in parallel) – we should at least give him the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he is right after all – but then again who are we to judge?

An Electrical Engineer turned Author. Why, you may ask? Well, having spent many a year in this profession, I have come to realise that engineering can be so predictable and (depending on where you happen to be gainfully employed) – so very uncreative. Yes, it can be pretty dull...

In order to redress this appalling imbalance between the original expectations of my future profession (those stemming from my early student days) and the ‘cruel’ reality in which I find myself (i.e. the way it has turned out to be); I decided to take up creative writing in 2010. It is an interesting, challenging and rewarding pastime indeed; whereby I do hope that the word ‘creative’, used in the previous sentence, is not just a product of my wild imagination.
