The Whole Man free read Ë 106 Grootste genezer van zijn tijdMaar wanneer hij afdaalde in de menselijke geest speurend naar hun nachtmerries kon men dan van deze kriel verwachten dat hij de duistere machten kon hanteren. review of John Brunner s The Whole Man by tENTATIVELY a cONVENIENCE February 22 2012 John Brunner is growing on me like that mildew on the dragon in Choong s fantasy not like a disease but like a thorough level of detail This is the 3rd bk I ve read by him In the beginning there was The World Swappers wch I thought was pretty good but I wasn t exactly overwhelmed or anything then there was Times Without Number wch I thought was considerably better But NOW w The Whole Man I feel like Brunner s really getting somewhere The whole structure of the bk the nature of the plot allows for the seamless interpolation of subplots that re dramatically different from the main plot but still germane to it That s clever enuf in itself to be very pleasing to me The main character Gerald Howson is a projective telepathist a telepath who can project into other people s minds who re non telepathic One of the things that such telepaths can do is so involve other people in their fantasies that they become catatonic Hence the aforementioned interpolated subplots Because he was who he was he once had asked for and they had given him a private aircraft to travel anywhere in the world thinking to escape the dismayed stares and the whispering of ordinary people But because he was what he was even the faint shock which the pilot betrayed on meeting him hurt and hurt badly He bore with it for a little then he cut short the trip and never asked for the plane again p 87 I feel ya There re many subcultures in the world that fancy themselves open minded but only a very few true individualists Most people are point blank a drag What has to be done is this Howson said in a voice as shrill and hard as a scream Somebody has to follow him into fantasy Somebody has to risk his own sanity to work out the rules by which his universe operates to sort out from ten real personalities and God knows how many schizoid secondaries the ego of the telepathist to make the fantasy so uninhabitable that from sheer disgust he withdraws the links between himself and the others and reverts to normal perception p 102 Alright I just witnessed the movie Client 9 The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer while I was in the midst of reading this Brunner I like the idea of letting that influence the writing of this review so I m going to go for it I d call Spitzer Ralph Nader myself psychopathfinders people who use psychopathic amts of energy for productive purposes rather than the destructive ones that society tries to force us into thru stereotype imposition such like channeling one s anger against the injustices that make one angry in the 1st place What brought Spitzer s career as a social reformer down was being caught fucking some whores I don t care that much about where he sticks his dick as long as it s consensual but I do care that by spending thousands of dollars an hr on these high priced moronic hookers that he was reinforcing the utterly ridiculous totally greedy sense of self worth that these normals have thereby reinforcing the worst aspects of the society that he s hypothetically combatting The completely unintrospective greed of these escorts their pimps madams is part parcel of the same greed as that of their Johns the bankers the politicians the generally overpd people who re willing to rip anybody everybody off wo any scruples whatsoever Who else cd AFFORD to pay 2000 an hr for sex but someone who rips off other people for a million a day I seriously doubt that the sex is even as good as having sex w someone like me SO What has to be done is this cONVENIENCE said in a voice deemed dissonant by the musically thoughtless Somebody has to drive a conceptual wedge into the fantasy world that mass media uses to keep the normals who won t rock the capitalist boat rich all the geniuses poor Somebody has to risk their own sanity to work out the rules by which that shitty universe operates to sort out from ten real personalities and God knows how many schizoid secondaries the egos of the sheep to reveal that the nature of the fantasy is far uninhabitable than what they d really be capable of if they d develop their own potential instead of being slaves to the point that from sheer disgust they withdraw the links between tehmselves and the others and revert to actual perception instead of mediated imbecilic conformity Brunner goes there somewhat when he writes things like First off he d missed this kind of people Which was hardly to be wondered at One of the first benefits of an improved standard of living as he had already been superficially aware is to postpone the age at which a person s opinions congeal for life Someone forced by poverty to avoid spending on enlarging his horizons the energy and time needed simply for staying alive adapted the attitudes ready made of his environment This was why students formed the backbone of so many revolutionary movements for instance p 150 To wch I wd amend Let s not forget the Arrested Development the people who never even reach an introspective phase of life the ones who accept all aspects of greed wo ever once examining any concepts of the better social good let s not forget the Psychopathfinders the ones who struggle against being forced by poverty or other oppressive circumstances against all odds as it were Brunner has an aspiring writer imagine What I d like is a techniue which would enable a pre Columbian Amerind to understand a twentieth century Chinese p 153 Indeed it s a virile demonstration of Brunner s development as a writer that HE can imagine hope for such a thing Brunner has an aspiring artist imagine a multiinter media form that wd ve still been somewhat futuristic in 1964 when this novel was written insofar as what it s somewhat evocative of is psychedelic light shows Of course even such things had predecessors in eg the Vortex sound light experiments conducted by Jordan Belson Henry Jacobs beginning in 1957 at the Morrison Planetarium in California what Brunner has his character imagine is both naively underinformed about such things perhaps a little beyond it Once long before he had seen a tattered print of Disney s Fantasia he had enjoyed it and had wished there had been attempts to combine sound and vision in a similar way Now he was finding out what the combination would be like on the highest level That s the naive underinformed part at least on the part of the character Howson if not on the writer s Fantasia is crap IMO is from 1940 there were already MANY precursors to it of far greater originality conceptual importance Viking Eggeling s Diagonale Symphonie 1924 Hans Richter s Rhythmus 21 Walter Ruttman s Lichtspiel Opus 1 1920 or 1922 many films of Mary Ellen Bute s etc etc The interested reader is advised to check out The Visual Music Village or even my own modest Brain Waves Goodbye Like a swimmer struggling in a torrential river Howson sought wildly for solidity in

is where his imagination becomes a bit multi sensorial Rudi Allef s mind was almost as far from the ordinary as was Howson s own but in a different direction Somehow Rudi s sense data cross referenced interchangeably Howson had experience of minds with limited audio vision those of people to whom musical sounds called up associated colors or pictures but compared to what went on in Rudi s mind that was puerile p 173 My wet fireworks as my beloved wife will insist on calling them he murmured Watch this is my latest He connected the cord to a socket beneath one of the larger tanks A faint light came on after a pause it brightened and a stream of opalescent bubbles began to work their way through the tank in a switchback formation Shafts of green yellow and blue shifted through the tank in an

At some places this is too heavy and too introspective Other sections are intense and gripping The main issue with the novel is its inconsistency I do remember it being a fix up novel of sorts which may account for some of the scattered uality Brunner s tossing Freud all around is a little too obnoxious for me But I did enjoy the very telepath and society sort of relationship that is constantly explored throughout this novelI have a little reservation about this being four stars because I all along had a nagging suspicion that Brunner s main inspiration for the concepts in this novel was simply autismFor people who like heady psychological novels and also novels which dabble in sociology
