Alexey Malakhov - My Inspirations
Stanislaw Lem - a pure thinker. While he is mostly referred to as a writer, I do not think it is possible to classify him into any specifically defined group. His books are thorough and rigorous thought experiments about human and technological development. I admire most of his stuff, but absolute favorites would be The Cyberiad, Return from the Stars, Solaris, The Star Diaries.
Good arcitles about Stanislaw Lem:
Dr. Strangelove - a great mental exercise by Stanley Kubrick with an absolutely hilarious dark comedy twist.
|The Mile High Illinois - a magnificent building reaching one mile into the sky. Proposed and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956, when he was 88 years old.|
|Philosophers by Mikhail Nesterov|
|Future Pilots by Alexander Deineka|
|Grazing Horses IV by Franz Marc|
|Nighthawks by Edward Hopper|
