Of Super-Evos and Non-Evos: Imagining Karmic Law in the 23rd Century

Leni Dlr. Garcia

Discipline: Philosophy, Culture



The philosophical musings in this article are inspired by Laura Esquivel’s multimedia novel, The Law of Love, set in a world of high-end technological gadgets in the 23rd century where people are aware that their lives are governed by the law of karma. The reflections try to show that although sophisticated technology might be able to help in tracking one’s spiritual growth in many ways, in the long run it will only hamper the true evolution of the soul.
