I am a fan of the type of science fiction that uses the unknown future, onto we can project…

Thanks! I’m actually really new to the sci-fi genre so I’ll check those out. I’m gathering quite the list of stuff I need to read…it’s a course of study of its own.

Yeah, I really think you’re right about the concept being easier through fiction. It’s definitely rooted in some serious academic work that I kind of wish I could take part in, but a) there’s only so much school I can afford in time and money and b) yeah, no one wants to read that kind of academic work. At all. Not even my academic committee wanted to read it.
