From the swarming, last-redoubt towers of the polar areas, the place humanity huddles from the savage warmth of Greenhouse Earth, to the dusty refugee camps of a shattered the USA; from the digital truth panorama the place children search to fix a wounded planet, to the post-human globe populated by means of wily transgenic heirs to mankind; and, finally, around the ideology-splintered ruins of the U.

Sample text

W e have only a short time left. Three days. ” I began to realize that the words and movements of Faustine and the bearded man coincided with those of a week ago. The atrocious eternal return. But today one element was missing. My little garden, mutilated by Morel’s footsteps, is a mudhole now, with parts of dead flowers crushed into the ground. I felt elated. I thought I had made this discovery: that there are unexpected, constant repetitions in our behavior. The right combina­ tion of circumstances had enabled me to observe them.

I was not sure what I was going to do. Spontaneity is the mother of crudity. ” It was a very bad joke; in fact, it was not even clear whether I was speaking to her or to him. The bearded man kept on walking toward Faustine, and if I had not moved in time he would have walked right into me. The woman did not stop asking questions; she did not interrupt her look of contentment. Her serenity still appalls me. Since that moment I have been miserable and ashamed, and I have felt an urge to kneel at Faustine’s feet.

But while I was gathering the flowers, I kept an eye on the museum and did not see any signs of life; this allows me to suppose, to be certain, that I was not observed either. The flowers are very small. I shall have to plant literally thousands of them if I want my garden to be noticed. I spent a long time preparing the soil, breaking the ground (it is hard, and I have a large surface to cover), and sprinkling it with rain water. When the ground is ready, I shall have to find more flowers. I shall try to keep those people from seeing me, or from seeing my garden before it is finished.
