    PDFEPUB Iain M Banks #181; Surface Detail Epub #180; #181; surface download, detail pdf, Surface Detail PDFThought experiment time Would a hardliner faith culture with high tech create a virtual hell to stay in power and make everyone afraid of getting inside that creepy artificial purgatory if they misbehave?This idea could be expanded for instance with school excursions to hell to show the pupils what happens if one is nasty or for the permanent display of how hellish the sinners are suffering Sending the one or other poor soul back to earth to tell about the cruelties may be a fine psychological warfare trick against the own population tooAll of this could be seen as an allegory of each time when anachronistic power structures meet technological advancements and aren´t shattered and destroyed by enlightenment and democracy For instance a tool like the internet that is so downgraded and censored in dictatorships t

Is this a Culture novel one of huge Space Operatic dimensions Ship Mega Minds nearly ascendant alien cultures and encroaching afterlifes?Wait Afterlife? Sure Virtual hells made for elephantine aliens with enormous virtual wars to take up their attention so it doesn't have to spill over into the realIt's civilized don't you know?Of course you can't say that for the people being TORTURED FOR ETERNITY within them sighThis one happens to be my absolute favorite of all the Culture Novels I haven't read the 10th yet but it's going to have to work double time to beat this oneI love all the characters from the Eccentric Drones to the debt enslaved victim of hell and her lover of oh so tragic fate Learning how to become a demon
