Arturo Magidin, UNAM, Mexico.|
"Originally published in Interzone #61, July 1992. Because of an accident,
people's values and beliefs, and convictions, became completely permeable
to one another. So people start clumping according to values and beliefs.
The narrator though is a `strange attractor', never quite clumping but
rather navigating a road between opposing limit sets. Lots of talk about
attractors and chaos."
This story is most easily found today in the collection "Axiomatic"
BTW: Check out Egan's Home Page for more information about his fiction, his programming and the mathematics underlying them.
"A cool concept if completely implausible. I found myself empathising anyway. "

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
