One thought on “Eight keys to Eden

  1. Eliatan

    This was a curious book, by it s means of highlighting man s inadequacy in dealing with events outside his understanding All must be understandable, repeatable, reproducible science, else it is religion This clever little book explores the idea of a third way a science our dirt farmer existence makes it all but impossible to comprehend Wherever the aliens have tried to interact with earthlings to teach this third way with a goal of finding their intellectual equals , we ve either grovelled in th [...]

    I was pleasantly surprised by this novel It is a novel of ideas which was packed into what at first seemed to be a sitcom There were many comedic approaches and situations, but when it came time for the denouement the ideas took over and I, for one, love SF ideas This one even brought up my pet theory that mankind once was telepathic, but when he learned the lazy ways of using tools he lost that capability.The story line is about a colony on another planet in the Ceti constellation, that suddenl [...]

    The human colony on the planet Eden is well established Many pictures are sent back to Earth of houses, plowed fields and a hangar for their ship Eden has missed their regularly scheduled check in with Earth Is their equipment broken Is there a space disturbance between Earth and Eden Are the colonists being inconsiderate jerks and deciding not to call Earth A ship, with Junior E Calvin Gray on board, is sent to investigate.The Extrapolators E for short are Earth s intellectual supermen After a [...]

    I Read this book in the 70 s and it s thought provoking ideas have remained with me throughout the intervening 40 yrs That s a long time, so I m interested in re reading this book, to see how well it stands today I suspect the writing style may appear dated but I fully expect the ideas to be as refreshing and thought provoking as they were when I read it as a teenager For me, as a young teen, this book represented possibly my first exposure to the concept of sceptical and critical thinking IE Ta [...]

    Eight keys to Eden by Mark CliftonThe BEST science fiction short story I have read since early 2015, when I set goal of 100 books this year.It is of the scientific science fiction variety.It is my first Mark Clifton Book It is a standalone book, not part of a series.Satisfying thought provoking ending.

    If you like pulpy golden age sci fi writing, with a bit of acerbic political commentary and a dash of adolescent humor that is capped off with a whole lot of pseudo intellectual mumbo jumbo then this is the book for you My inner 13 year old loved this book, while the rest of me thought it was all pretty silly not intentionally so.

    Recommended to me by a friend, but I had a really hard time getting into the characters The end of the book was interesting philosophically, but by then I just wasn t really invested.
