Question: What are your recent series and films you have watched? And your actual ones? A book recommendation: Sapiens by Harari about our species. Harari is one of the most influential philosophers of our time and appreciated by big people like Obama, Merkel, Zuckerberg, Gates and others.

    Watching WandaVision now. Re: books, I've heard lots of people talk about Sapiens, yeah, but I generally prefer fiction. The last non-fiction I think I read was "Other Minds" which is about Octopuses as they relate to (or don't relate to) humans (I did enjoy it, though). Currently reading "The Last Human" by Zack Jordan. Off the top of my head, recent books/series I've read that I completely loved include "Gideon the Ninth" and "Harrow the Ninth" by Tamsyn Muir, and the Broken Earth Trilogy by NK Jemisin. Re Tv/movies/fiction, there are way too many things I've liked to list...

    I'm currently reading "Gnomon" by Nick Harkaway, based on your earlier recommendation. Loving it, thanks!

    I think you will enjoy Sapiens although it isn't (much) fiction but it's messages and correlations might be a basis for a big (science) fiction?:)
