Ludicrious and pompous



Lem simply doesn't seem to care about any credible scenario to hammer home his thematic points. I'm sorry, but even though humans can indeed by stupid and aggressive by nature, there is no conceivable way in which these things would have happened in the future world that Lem conjured up himself: a peaceful, high-tech 21st century on a ship full of top notch professional scientists. It is ludicrous.

In an attempt to voice a strong opinion on humanity, Lem forgets human reality.
