All science fiction is divided into clever science fiction and fairy tales for adults, but it is embarrassing to call it a fairy tale, so they write ‘science fiction’. So, writers of clever science fiction simply download the information from time levels of various realities. They download the future, which can come true with the right combination of certain wave conditions. That is, they receive knowledge and describe it. This, in turn, psychologically prepares a clever person, who has read this book, for forthcoming events. It forms skills of multidimensional thinking, allowing them to orient themselves in the quickly changing conditions of life. All this expands not only a person’s adaptational range, preparing his consciousness for a qualitatively new leap in perception of the surrounding world, but also creates preconditions for the internal change of a person himself, simply speaking, for transition to another wave of ‘new reality’.
“Just recall books by H.G. Wells, who correctly determined and prepared mankind for future scientific and technical progress. Or Jules Verne, who predicted many discoveries and inventions that subsequently came true. Or, in particular, take Alexei Tolstoy’s book, “The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin”, written in 1925-1926 in which the laser is actually predicted. Even though the first laser wasn’t invented until 1960. And take Alexander Belyaev books! For example, his novel “The Star KETs” written in 1936 practically carried real prophecies about the ways of astronautics. There are many such examples… And how many grains of truth are reflected in the books of writers such as Ivan Yefremov, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Alexander Kazantsev, Stanislaw Lem… There are many such talented people to prepare a clever reader for forthcoming events. But they have to write their books in the genre of science fiction since clever one will understand it anyway, and at the same time, fool won’t take offence.”
Nikolai Andreevich grinned.
“You know, to be fair, I also treated science fiction with much prejudice, reading it as you have said like a fairy tale for adults. But once I read a note in a magazine that John F. Kennedy, when he was president, invited several science fiction writers into his ‘think tank’ for forecasting possible developments of the future. It was also mentioned there that a hobby of some talented, world-renowned scientists was reading science fiction. And that many scientific terms have even come to us from science fiction. To tell the truth, it surprised me.”
“This is a normal situation. You see, when a person reads a book, he starts to live as though in its world, that is, he begins to attune himself to the same frequency of perception as the author. And here the reader can face a surprising phenomenon, a peculiar burst of brain activity. Call it what you will: generating ideas, insight of the subconscious, or anything you wish. But it is this burst that is, in fact, a short-term transition to the corresponding frequency of perception of the book which our memory records. Corresponding ideas are then born on the basis of available personal knowledge and experience. That is why many talented scientists, politicians, and ordinary people, who aspire to understand themselves and the world around them, get ideas and future discoveries exactly from books, including science fiction, from this unique database of non-realised realities. At that, it can ‘emerge’ in memory in any form and at any time – right at the moment of reading, or in a dream, or can suddenly dawn on you later…”
