Plastic Cup

Selene is the moon and she’ll see it all, everything under the sun! She’ll see the technoferno burn, and she’ll see religion give its watered silk to science, and she’ll see the slaves with the dishpan hands of masters, and she’ll see the masters growing new transhuman hands, and she’ll see the android children eating apples, and all of this sounds fantastically far-fetched, but Selene is the moon and she’ll see it all, everything under the sun! She’ll see the wax-eared gamblers gambling on the war-ming, and she’ll see the politically polished orgasms soon abolished, and she’ll see the sperm of the smartest monkey in a plastic cup, and she’ll see the blanching middle fingers of the choral reefs, and she’ll see the caesium froth on the surface of the ocean, and all of this sounds fantastically far-fetched, but Selene is the moon and she’ll see it all, everything under the sun!

      1. Heinlein would know best. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. My favorite part (which I think I read there) is flying (with artificial wings) in the 1/6th lunar gravity inside huge caverns, pressurized with air.
