Geometrical Psychology - Image of Human Consciousness
by Benjamin Betts, 1887

So the universe is not quite as you thought it was. You'd better rearrange your beliefs, then. Because you certainly can't rearrange the universe. - Isaac Asimov & Robert Silverberg in "Nightfall"

Nightfall is a science fiction short story that was written by Isaac Asimov in 1941. It is a story about an impending disaster on a planet that is normally illuminated by a perpetual sunlight of its six suns. The denizens of this planet are about to experience the terrifying phenomenon of total darkness. In 1990 Asimov's short story was adapted by Robert Silverberg and transformed into a very readable novel.
