Nije li i Asimov Nemesis nastao oko iste teorije? Ono, ljudi iznenada otkriju zvijezdu koja ?e u roku od nekoliko godina uništiti sav život na Zemlji i tad po?nu zavrzlame. Davno sam je pro?itao pa se ne sje?am baš dobro.
Ili sam ja nešto pomiješao? :scratch:

"Gaia is one of Asimov's best attempts at exploring the possibility of a collective awareness, and is compounded further in Nemesis, in which the planet Erythro composed primarily of prokaryotic life has a mind of its own and seeks communion with human beings."

Nemesis (1989)

The novel is set in an era in which interstellar travel is in the process of being discovered and perfected. The demands of the plot required Asimov to hypothesize a planetary system about a star named Nemesis. At the time of the writing, this name was given to a theoretical companion to Earth's sun which could provide a mechanism for periodic disturbances of comets in the Oort cloud, which would then fall inwards causing mass extinctions. The red dwarf star in the book turns out not to be this companion; it is simply passing through the solar system.

Interestingly, the planetary system in the book included a Jovian planet in a very short-period orbit about its primary star. This was a radical idea in 1989, but was vindicated with the discovery of the first extrasolar planet orbiting a sun-like star (that orbiting 51 Pegasi) in 1995.

You think of me as rats. You think of a thing known as The Air Force Survival Handbook, where it explains that if you cut off one of my heads --which is where the poison is -- you must then slit open the ventral side and continue the cuts to extend the length of each leg. Subsequent to this, the skin can be peeled off, the belly opened and emptied, the backbone split and both halves roasted on sharpened sticks over a small fire.
