Well well well... This time, it's going to be really tough.

before I get the Goes53 list, I never heard of Harari, or did not pay attention. Boris, you gave me the need to read his books.

Arg I still haven't read or listened to the book... I guess it won't happen this week.

And so far I don't have any picture (and not much idea) so this could be the first week I'll miss of #SiPgoes53 :/

I didn't read his books.
YET.
I heard a buzz about Homo Deus [I live this title!] but didn't have an opportunity to catch this one.

Now I definitely will. When I read some of descriptions of his books and some quotes to catch the spirit of his writing and to find an inspiration, there were so much similarities to my own reflections, especially about future of humanity, post and transhumanity.

There are so much threads that I felt dizzy! It was quite tough to find a proper way to illustrate my ideas with Lego, some ways were even impossible, but I think I was able to capture the mood and spirit of Yuval Noah Harari's philosophy.

Thank You for this thought provoking person!

I don't know if this isn't cheating or if You want it at all, but I can give some hints. J. N. Harari's literature seems to fit my own views on humanity, so I maybe I can help :)

So far my main problem is the lack of time, and potentially the lack of cooperation from the weather too :D

Not an easy week in SiPgoes53 challenge! But I guess challenges are not made to be easy!
I didn't know this writer till his name was put on the list and, as the others, now I've added one more book to read on my pile :D
As I read some quote from his books, I'm starting to have an idea for this week picture.

I think that an idea came to my mind, but it's uncertain I'll be on time for Sunday's deadline.

Boris, you're a bad bad guy, having put this name in the list!  🤣
