Demise into lifestyles is a 1946 novel by way of Olaf Stapledon. no longer strictly technological know-how fiction (the style into which Stapledon's works are typically classified), the radical is defined as "an imaginitive remedy of the matter of survival after death". It bargains basically with the soul of a rear gunner who's killed in international battle II, and who unearths himself surviving his obvious dying - first as a part of a spirit bomber-crew, then as a part of the spirits who have been killed within the conflict, and so forth till ultimately his soul turns into a part of a 'cosmical spirit'.
STARFLEET CORPS OF ENGINEERS
The dilithium mining outpost on BorSitu Minor is an understaffed, dull, unspectacular position packed with miners, engineers, and scientists who've by no means performed damage to an individual, nor have they got something of value.
Yet the outpost has been devastated via a brutal attack, with just about all palms misplaced -- and the survivors do not know what attacked them. Worse, the assault weapon seems to have the facility to penetrate the outpost's strong shields. That has the group of the U. S. S. da Vinci nervous, because it may simply as simply ruin a starship!
Now the S. C. E. crew, led by way of Commander Sonya Gomez, needs to discover the reality in the back of what ravaged the outpost, and desire that somebody hasn't unleashed a weapon that may smash all of them!
An research right into a chroniton disturbance leads the da Vinci to a time-travelling Ferengi named Lant -- one that goes to the prior to be able to "speculate" and make a fortune. Now Commander Gomez, Lt. Commander Tev, Lt. Commander Corsi, and Cultural professional Abramowitz of the S. C. E.

CHAPTER 11 OLIOP STOOD HUNCHED OVER a work bench in the Committee building's basement repair shop, a stand with multiple lights shining bright on the task at hand. Several null-space tool boxes hung from a low support beam, the boxes crammed full of every type of tool that the many races of the Galactic Commons knew or admitted to knowing. The pocket dimension portable holes hung lightly on their hooks, giving no indication of the hundreds of pounds of weight that they actually held. Oliop got his from the null-space merchant near his favorite fruit vendor.
Her fingers brushed its surface. She whispered something and closed her eyes. An aroma of lilac wafted forth. She nodded, agreeing with whomever or whatever was on the other end. * * * Jeff checked the rest of the property. He took the truck down each driveway and around each building. He checked the barn and the many sheds and storage units. Back where the school grounds met the main road, he got out to see if anything looked amiss or if anyone else was here. A gang of thieves' oldest trick in the book was to send out a salesman or beggar or a cute girl as a decoy to the front while bandits struck around the back.
The pilot's two ears jerked up in surprise. He shrieked something and waved his arms. The pilot sounded to Jeff like an aggressive chimpanzee about to attack his face. Jeff jumped back and threw up his hands to protect himself. His staple gun went flying. The hairy alien sounded angry, but besides a series of expansive gestures, he didn't move from his spot by the cube's control panel. Jeff relaxed a bit, moved back to the cube's portal. The alien continued his angry noise. Or was it speech? Maybe this was some advanced civilization's version of Laika, the Soviet Union's space dog, the first animal to orbit the Earth.
