In november 2019, I met the Science Fiction author and painter Rudy Rucker at his house in the bay area & we recorded a conversation about Science Fiction, futurism tentacular beings and how everything, even a stone, is alive.
Rudy Rucker wrote many, many non-fiction and Science Fiction books. He is a mathematician and one of the original cyberpunk movement authors. He is a painter and lover of critters and a very nice guy who answered very patiently questions like „are you a science informed animist?“ or „what about all the tentacles?“.
Look at his paintings, read his work & check out his podcast here.
