AgNES is designed from the point of view of being this deep-space exploration companion; but as a narrative device, it is also about thinking what would happen if thousands of years from now, future researchers came across this device built only hundreds of years from now. Soft science fiction focus on the soft sciences. Essais sur le role et les pouvoirs de l'imagination" (Paris: 1966) "The fantastic is always a break in the acknowledged order, an irruption of the inadmissable within the changeless everyday legality." -- Roger Callois, "Au couer du fantastique" (1965); "Images, images" (1966) To Callois, the presence of a unicorn in a garden, or something else strange into the familiar world, causes "the impression of irreducible strangeness."
