Third story, humans are outside of the Galaxy. Fourth story, humans got rid of their bodies and are Minds. As disembodied individuals each of them have retained their personality or identity. Thus, the cyclical pattern of the universe continues and so does humans’ saga. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Are we trapped in a computer glitch that with each big bang birth we all play the same story plots?
It helps to have mystical and transhumanisim backgrounds to understand the story.

Mar 14, Muneel Zaidi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Zsimov the point in giving you a summery for a 4,word short story? So here’s what I’ll do instead: I’ll give you a lesson in physics. Ever hear of the second law of thermodynamics? But you have no clue what it means? Okay, well we can work with that. Here’s what Wikipedia has on the subject: The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy of an isolated system never decreases, because isolated systems spontaneously evolve towards thermodynamic equilibrium—the What’s usaac point in giving you a summery for a 4,word short story?
The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy of an isolated system never decreases, because isolated systems spontaneously evolve towards thermodynamic equilibrium—the state of maximum entropy.
The Last Question
What do you mean you don’t understand entropy? Of course you understand entropy, I assure you.
Every time you see a sand castle crumble away in the wind, every time your car breaks down on the road, every time somebody you know dies and is gone forever Entropy is the measure of disorder in a system The second law of thermodynamics tells us that entropy in a closed system, be it your sand castle, car, or life But here’s the thing, it’s not really a law by any means.
Nothing in all of actual physics states that this must be, physics actually says it’s perfectly possible for random sand molecules to be blown in a way where they land and form a perfect sandcastle instead of making one crumble away. Why don’t we see things like this happen? Yes, the second law of thermodynamics is actually a statistical principle; entropy could indeed decrease in a system any system like this would be considered a perpetual motion machinebut it’s just not statistically likely.
Meaning a sand castle could coincidently form by the winds blowing dust randomly It won’t because the statistical likelihood of the wind and molecules to just happen to be in the right position and velocity for this sand castle to just appear is so slim, I do not have enough memory in my computer to type out all the zeros I need to put behind the odds of it happening 1 in 1,,, This statistical principle is so powerful and universal, we call it a law.
It explains a lot of things in our universe. Before we knew about the second law of thermodynamics, it used to bother physicist that we could move in any direction in space up, down, forward, backward but we could only move in one direction in time. Space and time being so closely linked, why was it we could only move forward in time? We only go from one moment to another as entropy increases. Ahhh, I see what you are thinking. Yes, our universe is a closed system, and yes that does mean it will die.
You think it’s a little sad that in the end chaos will always win?
I don’t think so, after all life is beautiful don’t you think? Life is amazing in that it can bring a little bit of order in this chaotic world, but funny enough, without entropy there would be no life. So I don’t think it’s sad, it’s just the natural state of affairs that we will grow old, live our lives fighting entropy, and we will die.

Dec 25, Jan 22, Tyler Bair rated it it was amazing Shelves: A very quick 15 minute read and easily one of the best sci-fi short stories I’ve ever read.
Whatever their literary tastes, anyone is capable of thoroughly enjoying this great work by one of the greatest queshion authors of all time! Te preguntas si es posible que ese final sea factible y si no nosotros como raza estamos tan locos como para hacer eso y la verdad es que si Impresiona que el relato se haya escrito hace tanto tiempo y que siga tan vigente su premisa, siaac una genialidad por parte de Asimov.
Deben leerlo, no toma mas de 30 minutos. Apr 05, Adrian rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 3 comments. View all 4 comments. Jan 05, Komal rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mind blown in 5 pages. I’ve never wondered so deeply about the walks of our universe in 22 years of my life as much as I have in the span of barely fifteen minutes, which began with me opening this story and ended with me finishing it.
There is no proper review for me to provide to do justice to a book this short-lived and astounding. Read it and you’ll know it. View all 7 comments.
La última pregunta [The Last Question] (Unabridged)
Dec 13, Pooja rated it it was amazing Shelves: And only thing in my mind now is: Apr 03, George rated it it was amazing Shelves: The only question worth asking. Our Sun pergunta support life for billions of years, but what happens when it burns out? Perhaps future technology will enable us to seek out the safety of distant stars and habitat new planets, but then eventually those stars will die too.
So is life as we know it, and all of mankind, destined to be doomed? Is it possible to reverse entropy? This short story starts off in the year keep in mind this was written in and follows the evolution of man and the subsequent advancement of techno Our Sun will support life for billions of years, but what happens when it burns out?
This short story starts off in the year keep in mind this was written in isaac follows the evolution of man and the subsequent advancement of technology throughout the ages. Split into seven sections, each story features a different POV that takes you further into the depths of space and time, racing towards the end of humanity, and ends with the resounding question, How exactly may entropy be reversed?
This question, propelled iisaac man’s innate desire to live forever, is oft repeated, yet never is there enough data to give a “meaningful answer” by the pansophical Multivac, a self-learning machine capable of evolving and expanding itself into the universe, which humans have now found themselves increasingly dependent on. The world Asimov creates is simply incredible, and downright ingenious. Even today, The Last Question rivals the ingenuity of science fiction novels, and transforms speculative fiction into something more thought provoking and profound.
It is daring, and I found myself growing more and more transfixed as the story progressed, and the imposing, unanswered question became critically relevant.
