At odds with my naturalism! *SPOILERS* kinda
Okay, it's been a while since I've read Rant, but there're still questions I have about it that I simply can't get past.
What's up with saying that if you kill your ancestors, you become immortal? That's... I mean... what?
Then the whole "crashing a car in some state of mind makes you go back in time." I... can't see how this fits into any kind of logic, fictional or not. I can get past Star Wars claiming lightspeed can get you across a galaxy in a matter of minutes/hours. I understand cosmology isn't very well understood by everyone, and we can assume that in the Star Wars universe, galaxies are tiny or that lightspeed is much much faster than we previously thought. But this... is it supposed to be magic? Is it some metaphysical theory I haven't read about?
Not to mention incest with your mother making you your own daddy making you more superhuman. Uuuuhhh... whaaaaaat?? I'm very lost on these issues, and it seems like this book was written before the times of Darwin with everything that's just blatantly nonsensical. I loved the book for some of its themes, but... c'mon.
Can anyone help me with some of this, or is this already a tired issue?
