Endoastronomy (2012)

The Future is Japanese 6/13

This is one of these stories where I have no idea what I just read. I understand each sentence, get the gist of the overall structure of what goes on, but the finer points elude me. Is it a meditation on the limits of science and the malleability of knowledge, is it a meta-textual game the writer plays on the reader or a tale of the far future where the laws of the universe break down and people have to adapt to the new rules. Really, I have no idea. Even the character conflict is opaque to me. Didn’t to anything for me.
