Summary

Where everything is different from the way we give birth to the way we die. Where software can have a philosophy and you can change your personality with a pill. Where you can grow a pet, or a human being, to order. Where the fate of humanity rests in the hands of robots and post-human intelligences. Where you can govern a planet by Internet or shrink a politician down to size. Where strange new worlds lie not only out in distant space, but around the corner from now, or beyond the veil of life and death. Where anything is possible.
