      I got one question - has anyone noticed that Lem`s answer on:

    What is your opinion about Internet? Is Internet a new revolution in human life?

    Is precisely identical to one of his statements included in "Tako rzecze Lem", chapter on "Summa technologiae" (if my memory is correct)? I don`t know whether this book has any international editions, so my question would be rather addressed to the polish part of the forum, I suppose...
    I mention my doubts here, because I read yesterday fragments of that book and I`m pretty mind-boggled with the similarities of these two texts:-? I don`t think that it would have any special meaning, whether my speculations are correct or not, but it would be interesting to now if Lem has such "standard answers" - implicitly to get on with the avalanche of interviews and people expecting his opinions...
    Am I wrong? Could anyone check this? I don`t possess the book so I can`t do that by myself...

It is true. Sometimes Lem's answers to the typical question are based on the last edition of this book. It is a kind of Bible, where he presented his basic opinions.  8)
