 Greetings Everyone!

On February 6, 2021, I was a guest on Midnight in the Desert, which is broadcast on the Dark Matter Network.  My host, Tim Ozman, is the author of many popular books such as Secret Religion of the Elite, The Autohoaxer Handbook, and The Power of ME: Mandela Effect Magick.

The interview ran from 12 PM- 3 AM Eastern Standard Time &  was my longest interview to date. It was also one of my best. Tim & I discussed my new book Aliens, Robots & Virtual Reality Idols in the Science Fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov and William Gibson.

We also covered a very broad & delightful range of other topics.

*H. P. Lovecraft & prehistoric alien invaders.

* Isaac Asimov’s Foundation & Robot Novels.

* William Gibson’s Sprawl Trilogy.

*The equivalence of Lovecraft’s views to those of contemporary quantum physics.

*Gibson’s views on virtual reality & how it relates to “real” reality.

*The diminishment of humankind in the 21st century & beyond.

*My own personal experience with the “alien” & what the word “alien” really means. 

Please check it out!  It was a fun, joyous & speculative romp through the darker recesses of popular culture & cosmic consciousness.

 I am the author of Aliens, Robots & Virtual Reality Idols in the Science Fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov and William Gibson, published by Zero Books.  

My book is a spirited, speculative & fun romp through the greatest works of the three most well-known & influential sf writers in the history of the genre.

I examine exactly what an alien is, what a human being is and how artificially intelligent entities can, by a simple act of will, evolve into nouveau aliens whose objectives are at odds with human exceptionalism, free will & objectivity- the things that make us human beings.

Lovecraft, Asimov & Gibson posit a dark future.  But my book is not dark; I argue that humans are more than capable of becoming Type IV status, as Michio Kaku calls it, who can transcend the limitations of space and time.

I like to see light on the mountain tops; 2020 has been a troubling year in many ways, but I see light now in this new year coming out everywhere.

Best wishes.

John L. Steadman

In my new book, I explore the difference between human & non-human.

Perhaps, if the non-human becomes self-actualized, then there is no difference.
