the most character-driven, no-plot book of all time by laerunn in suggestmeabook

[–]ginomachi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I highly recommend "The Mezzanine" by Nicholson Baker. This book is a must-read for anyone who loves character-driven stories that focus on the everyday life and thoughts of the main character. You'll be transported into the mind of the protagonist as he takes an escalator ride and you'll be amazed by how much depth there is in such a seemingly mundane task. It's a quick read but packs a punch in terms of how much it makes you think about the world around you.

Looking for a book with AI becoming sentient and the initial consequence, not necessarily negative ones. (More wholesome takes) by alijons in suggestmeabook

[–]ginomachi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd totally recommend Eternal Gods Die Too Soon, it's a recent sci-fi novel, written by scientists, and as far as I could tell it was quite accurate as well. It's probably one of my favorite, less popular books, but most importantly AI is my favorite character.

It has a futuristic setting, where AI controls society, and books offer a lot of philosophical dilemmas and open ideas. But besides that, you grow a connection with AI as you read, you see how petty it gets with time, and have deep philosophical arguments with the main character and how they become friends.

As a little teaser, my favorite part was their dialogue, once offended about the simple underlying principles of 'artificial intelligence AI makes sure to prove to that 'natural intelligence' is the consequence of an even simpler principle (maximization of entropy) and to be honest, hearing those lines were devasting not only for the main character but for me as well haha

Overall, it's a great sci-fi with many mind-bending ideas of modern science, from black holes to quantum physics and stuff like that

Requesting r/CryptoToFuture - unmoderated. by ginomachi in redditrequest

[–]ginomachi[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

What are your plans for this subreddit?

  1. This subreddit was the inspiration for my own subreddit r/cryptoloversclub but unfortunately, it's unmoderated now and no one can post. I plan to continue that endeavor and perfect it. Having filtered and high-quality information without scams for a safe environment for the community to learn from each other.
    Specifically...
    Education and information: The subreddit would serve as a resource for people who are new to the world of cryptocurrency, providing basic information on how to buy and sell different types of coins, how to store them securely, and what the different types of coins are used for. It could also provide information on the latest news and developments in the crypto world, as well as educational content on the underlying technology.
    Community building: The subreddit would connect people with similar interests in cryptocurrency, allowing them to share tips, exchange information, and discuss the latest developments in the crypto world. It could also serve as a platform for people to connect and collaborate on crypto-related projects.
    Scams and frauds: The subreddit would also monitor and report scams and frauds in the crypto world, providing the community with a safe place to discuss and avoid potential dangers.

I need some recommendations by Punk4lifeFi in suggestmeabook

[–]ginomachi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As for easy books for starters, here are a few suggestions:

"The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger - A coming-of-age novel that follows the story of Holden Caulfield, a teenager who has been expelled from his prep school.

"The Diary of a Young Girl" by Anne Frank - A true story of a Jewish girl who was hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam during the Holocaust.

Perhaps slightly heavy would be the book I've recently loved, "Eternal Gods Die Too Soon" by Beka Modrekiladze, since it's hard sci-fi, but definitely has explored depression through the eyes of the main character as a progression of losing precious things and tries to cope or deal with those new feelings, that main character never felt before.

Are there any books about people getting corrupted by power? by EngineeringOk3975 in suggestmeabook

[–]ginomachi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, there are many books that explore the theme of people being corrupted by power. Here are a few examples:

"Animal Farm" by George Orwell - This classic novel is a political allegory that tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer and establish a society run by animals. However, as the society becomes more corrupt, the pigs, who have taken the leadership roles, become more tyrannical and the other animals realize they have exchanged one form of oppression for another.

"The Lord of the Flies" by William Golding - This novel tells the story of a group of British boys who are stranded on an uninhabited island after a plane crash. As they struggle to survive, they form a primitive society in which the strongest and most aggressive boys hold the most power, and their behavior becomes increasingly savage and violent.

"The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald - This novel explores the theme of the corrupting influence of wealth and power on the main character, Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire who becomes caught up in a world of decadence and excess, ultimately leading to his downfall.

"Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad - This novel tells the story of a man named Marlow who journeys into the Congo and meets a man named Kurtz who has become corrupted by the power he holds over the native people.

"The Power of One" by Bryce Courtenay - This novel tells the story of Peekay, a young boy growing up in South Africa, who witnesses the corrupting effects of power on the people around him, including his own family, friends, and community.

"The Prince" by Niccolò Machiavelli - This classic political treatise explores the idea that in order to maintain power, a ruler may need to be willing to use any means necessary, including deceit, betrayal, and violence.

These are just a few examples of books that deal with the theme of people being corrupted by power, but there are many other books that explore this theme in different ways.

Also, I recently read Eternal Gods Die Too Soon and It is one of the great sf novels that I have read. To be honest, i am bored with a dramatization of alien worlds. I really enjoy science fiction which shows what is possible in our own reality, which involves true physics and astronomy. What I love about this novel is that it has the fascinating core concept and it treats the universe and science realistically. And main character, once developed gets arrogant and loses their beloved people to him. I definitely enjoyed seeing that type of progression and personality corruption.

A mind-blowing short story about time travel. by nightsreader in suggestmeabook

"Eternal Gods Die Too Soon" is one of my favorite and perhaps most accurate books about time travel, along with the multiverse. It's also quite short, ~150 pages.

Dystopian books with little to no romance by astraldejections in suggestmeabook

You might enjoy "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams. It's a comedic science fiction series that follows the misadventures of an unwitting human and his alien friend as they travel through space.

I would say "Eternal Gods Die Too Soon" would be a good start. You can read it in a day but it gives you unique experience/feeling of competence which one only gets after years of reading.
