NOT ONE OF US STORIES OF ALIENS ON EARTH Edited by Neil Clarke If you find a bit of yourself in these stories, this book is for you. Introduction Throughout the science fiction landscape, aliens have been used to illustrate our own best and worst traits, but from a distance that makes it more palatable than a closer look in the mirror.

Understand a novelette by Ted Chiang Ted Chiang writes The initial impulse to write Understand arose from an offhand remark made by my roommate in college he was reading Sartres Nausea at the time, whose protagonist finds only meaninglessness in everything he sees. But what would it be like, my roommate wondered, to find meaning and order in everything you saw To me that suggested a kind of heightened perception, which in turn suggested superintelligence. I also thought about how the differences ...

Division by Zero By Ted Chiang 1 Dividing a number by zero doesnt produce an infinitely large number as an answer. The reason is that division is defined as the inverse of multiplication if you divide by zero, and then multiply by zero, you should regain the number you started with. However, multiplying infinity by zero produces only zero, not any other number. There is nothing which can be multiplied by zero to produce a nonzero result therefore, the result of a division by zero is literally ...
