How do you define science fiction?
“To me, anything beyond corporeality is considered science fiction; however I believe that the actuality and the presence of science give some sort of sensibility to this genre. The SF plays with our very incipient elements of creativity besides imagination, (though those elements have been spurned during the first half of the 20th century by the ideas of some spick-and-span movements) and can allot a new spirit to the weary minds of postmodernist men. “
In what way science fiction affect the world?
“In the same way that some other branches of didactic genres have done previously. I myself don’t like the idea of classification but this is my personal inkling that science fiction can be didactic if being used advisedly. A very beautiful amalgam of science and fiction can both pique the reason seeking minds and the appetent readers who look for adventures. A sagely inclusion of moral elements can be truly effective. “
