Chained Words

What connects one intelligence to another?

What is it to be a human?

Would a being from another planet have a very different way of behaving from us?

And what about a robot? Without their own intelligence, they would be just a programmable tool. But when we endow them with it, the need for free will immediately arises. And in that case, for what reason would they assist us?

What would prevent them from seeing us as limited beings? Or perhaps, this reasoning is wrong, and they would be just another intelligence to deal with.

These and other questions are developed here throughout thirty-five short science fiction stories. including some fantastic tales.

Author's Notes

With the common thread of how we relate between human beings, this book extends this idea to show how we would relate to other types of beings, be they intelligent robots, or extraterrestrials. Perhaps the reader discovers that no matter where he lives, the intelligence of each is not so different from that of the rest.
