OSC Answers Questions


QUESTION:

Just out of idle curiosity, do the same metaphysics/physics aply in the Ender and Alvin universes, specifically are the "atoms" that Alvin teaches the same as the philotes of the Ender series?

-- Submitted Anonymously

OSC REPLIES: - August 3, 2001

Related in a deep conceptual way (ditto with the strands binding people in the Homecoming series) because the idea appeals to me -- but they are not the same physical or metaphysical universes -- the rules are very different.

Interesting question though. Don't know if anybody has caught the similarities. I didn't plan it, any more than Wyrms and Speaker were planned to use aliens that adapt human forms for their own purposes
