Thanks again for having me on the show! I wanted to wait until this came out to repeat something we touched on in personal correspondence after recording - the significance of the Noah imagery ... given what we have to work with, that deal with Boyd at the end for UBI almost seems like a New Covenant, as was made with Noah, so that the people would not be destroyed again. Otherwise I dont know what else we can do with that Noah imagery- it might have been more present in the original draft in the second half, but then, who can straighten what editors have made crooked?
Hello, first time poster here. I have been following the podcast cover Fifth Head of Cerberus at work and in Episode 44, the Wrap Up, Brandon and Glenn briefly talk about Neal Stephenson's Anathem and how its use of leaves as paper could be a nod to Fifth Head. Glenn also says there are several Book of the New Sun references in Anathem. I'm a big fan of Anathem and read the Book of New Sun last year, but I'm at a loss of spotting the references. Can anyone help me out, or is this discussed in another episode?
