about

“The last question was asked for the first time, half in jest, on May 21, 2061, at a time when humanity first stepped into the light. The question came about as a result of a five dollar bet over highballs, and it happened this way...”

I named this track after Isaac Asimov's famous short story: "The Last Question". It deals with the future of humans on a mind bogglingly large scale; spanning from now to literally the end of time in a couple of pages of text. He explores a possible future for humans, learning to harvest energy from increasingly larger sources (stars, galaxies, etc) with the help of a supercomputer named Multivac. He delves into the concepts of solar energy, collective consciousness, hyperspace, the technological singularity and simple human nature.. all while asking the question: “Can the end of the universe be averted?" Asimov’s work, especially this story, has inspired me to learn and create for a purpose larger than entertainment or money. Hopefully I can have that effect on people some day. If you ever get a chance to read it, I highly recommend it.
