I came across this post on another forum I frequent. Has this been covered here before or is it something new? New to me anyway.

quote:
I think I've come up with an original observation: Where Is My Mind references Ender's Game.

I've been reading Ender's Game because it's one of those books you have to read I guess and it's alright really—despite not being able to constantly think about what a terrible person the author is—and came to this part:

"I said why does every one of you have his feet in the air and head towards the ground!"

and then the very next thing that happens? Ender teaches the soldiers a battle trick called "spinning" and instructs them all to try it.

I could be full of shit, but reading it I thought "this is definitely Where Is My Mind".

That's a new one to me - and not one I would put past FB given his love of SciFi. Interesting anyway! Sounds like another...

That's an interesting observation. assuming the passage is accurate.

I read Ender's Game years and years ago based on someone's recommendation. It was all right, but I wasn't taken with it the way my friend was and never read anything else from the author. I don't remember much of it at all.

As an aside, I wouldn't call Orson Scott Card a terrible person because of his religious beliefs.

cheers

I just read this elsewhere. It's pretty intriguing and actually seems plausible...

I agree Carl, given Frank's interest in sci-fi and love of obscure references...

's a good spot!
The 2nd and 3rd Enders books are worth a look, after they're all about how Scott Card would like the world to be and are well worth avoiding.

Without spoiling the book too much, titular line 'where is my mind' could relate to the bugger's consciousness...? Maybe a stretch.
