A Futuristic Science Fiction Novel that
combines Evolutionary Theory with Hindu Religious Philosophy.
The basic premise is that humans become
domesticated by Robots. This domestication process profoundly changes human
relationships from monogamy to polygamy, eventually leading to civilizational
collapse and tribalistic barbarism.
The human domestication process is
explained by illustratively comparing it to the domestication of the wild fowl.
In the wild, the jungle fowl mate monogamously. The male builds the nest and
provides for the hen while the eggs are being hatched.
Among the domesticated breeds, mating is
polygynous with roosters fighting each other to climb to the top of the pecking
order. Domesticated roosters have regressed and no longer possess the skills
necessary to build nests or gather food.
Ramayana 3000 deals with the struggle of
Ram and his companions as they try to rebuild a new human civilization.
The book places strong emphasis on
marriage as the foundation of civilization.
