THEY'RE MADE OUT OF MEAT

(Cue space music)


"They're made out of meat."

"Meat?"

"Meat. They're made out of meat."

"Meat?"

"There's no doubt about it. We picked up several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, and probed them all the way through. They're completely meat."

"That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars?"

"They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines."

"So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact."

"They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines."

"That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat."

"I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in that sector and they're made out of meat."

"Maybe they're like the orfolei. You know, a carbon-based intelligence that goes through a meat stage."

"Nope. They're born meat and they die meat. We studied them for several of their life spans, which didn't take long. Do you have any idea what's the life span of meat?"

If you get jokes from writers as well as everyone else in your email like I do, you get a few things that everyone else does not. With a little luck I was able to track down the author (not attached) and it turned out to be SF writer Terry Bisson who has the whole text posted on his web site.


THEY'RE MADE OUT OF MEAT by Terry Bisson was in fact nominated for a 1991 Nebula award, one of the highest awards in Science Fiction. I have posted a segement just to get you to go see the rest. Since it is apparently circulating around the internet without attribution, I thought the least I could do is point some people back to him and his website which tells about several new interesting books he has coming up.




If you have not already right clicked on the link above to check out the rest of the story, please do, its really worth it.




While you're at it, you might check out his story Incident at Oak Ridge. I'd tell you about it, but it's classified. Let's just say that its your Op to take a visit to the twilight zone.





Live long and prosper,






Peter
