Notes on the Meta presents a collection of documents, recovered by a crypto-historian from the mid to late twenty-second century, which relate to the last and greatest advancement in (strictly) human technology: the Meta-Algorithm (also known as Clausen’s Meta-Algorithm).
The societies of the twenty-second century have been marked by an event known as the Big-Information Black-Out (or BIBO), when all the communication systems in the planet were shut down for a period of (allegedly) fifteen minutes. When they were re-established, all the records stored and digitised throughout the century had been altered: leading to the emergence of thousands of different version of the past.
The main document in this compendium is presented as the transcription of a debate that (allegedly) took place in a digital forum (or Virtual Agora as this spaces used to be known) and revolves around what one of the characters involved in the debate defined as a ‘meta-physical battle’ between the Meta-Algorithm and a young man named Robert DeVries.
As the crypto-historian explains, this debate generated the highest number of 'mnemonic responses' ever to be attributed to a forum of this nature and, therefore, could have been highly influential in the outcome of the so-called Second Referendum.
In the Global Referendum (as it was also known) the vast majority of the human population of the mid twenty-first century (allegedly) voted to abandon the old national order and granted the world’s political and economic power to the Meta-Algorithm.
Apart from the transcription of the aforementioned debate, Notes on the Meta includes two related stories, presented in the form of a storyboard ( allegedly) produced by one of the characters involved in the virtual debate.
postales de villalibre
'Postales de Villalibre' es un interesantísimo retrato de la ciudad imaginaria de Villalibre, situada en pleno corazón de Sudamérica. En el trascurso de las páginas de este libro recorreremos la singularidad del siglo XX desde los ojos de los habitantes de esta peculiar Villa, los cuales nos son presentados por la voz de Rotundo Gómez Fuenzalida, uno de ellos. De esta manera asistiremos a disputas políticas, secretos ignominiosos, relaciones enigmáticas con la Alemania nazi, asesinatos, enfrentamientos bélicos y enredos amorosos.
El libro finaliza con un compendio de canciones creadas por algunos de los protagonistas de la obra. Este cancionero, deudor de la tradición oral de los pueblos sudamericanos, sirve como perfecto complemento a los acontecimientos que se desarrollan en la obra.
