Sep 12
Polish writer, physician. He scrutinizes ethical questions of modern science and technology in his fantasy satires, philosophical essays, and science fiction; wrote "Solaris."
A man who for an entire week does nothing but hit himself over the head has little reason to be proud.

When smashing momuments, save the pedestals -- they always come in handy.
Where do consequences lead? Depends on the escort.
Cancel me not -- for what shall then remain?
Abscissas, some mantissas, modules, modes,
A root or two, a torus and a node:
The inverse of my verse, a null domain.
