Forum in English / Lemopedia 2014
« dnia: Października 17, 2014, 12:36:11 pm »
Currently an effort is being made to migrate stanislaw-lem.wikia.com to The Lemopedia.

For that its a lot of button pressing (open new article in Lemopedia, copy source, paste source, then delete the article on Stanislaw-lem.wikia, then adding Categorys by hand).

If anyone is interested in helping, this last year the data that is in Stanislaw-lem.wikia was gathered and there is a lot of unique stub articles about all kinds of stuff Lem came up with in his novels.

Furthermore, if anyone can provide an article or an interview by Lem translated from a foreign language into English, it could be used as a Source on this Wiki (see the http://lem.pl/lemopedia/Lemopedia:Community_portal for more info on this part of the project.

The third part is scavenging the internet for all bibliographic links to Interviews and Articles by and from Stanislaw Lem. A lot of it, starting from Material from the 90s is not readily available and research institutes might have to be contacted. For that purpose, a general list of these bibliographies and their current status in getting the source should be started. (And an updated edit with the link posted here).

Just some ideas for making this Wiki as successfull as the Stanislaw-Lem.wikia.com was (at the end between 144-4 visitors daily).

Forum in English / Overpopulation addressed in Stanislaw Lem's work

As far as I can recall, Lem deals with the exponential rise in numbers of the inhabitants on a planet in two books.

In Fiasco it is described in the Section where DEUS describes how the power blocks balances shifted (because of the emerging nations, participating in the project of maintaining the ice ring just like the others, were superior only in the number of their population)

In the Futurological Congress it is the Central Theme and in shortened, abbreviated form handled in the first speech held in the Congress.

I have always wondered why no cultural or economic system on Earth has yet taken into account how many inhabitants consuming how much planet Earth can actually support. All we hear is that we consume to much and that its going to be bad.

But discreet or concrete measures as mentionedin the Congress are not executed in the scope necessary to make an impact so it seems. Or they are not publicly discussed at all.

So I wonder whether the globalized culture of man on Earth is lacking its reason in this vital part of their civilization, namely to sustain its own existence.
