        Her going there to look at sunset is the ending of the first novel.

        But in the book she's more one dimensional and completely fine with humanity getting wiped so there's no real romanticizing her end. She just thinks "all is good" and jumps.

        The assassin girl in the show is basically a composite of two separate characters from the second book.

    Dark Forest theory only works if you have the contrivance that it's possible to wipe out your enemy with absolute certainty that they have NO second strike capability lurking in deep space; otherwise you're just setting yourself up to get nuked later on and also making third party observers view you as a threat.

    Of course, not sharing data with the Trisolarans made sense because of the tech gap and the fact that they had conquest in mind. But it still begs the question of why such an advanced race couldn't just live in O'Neill cylinders further away from their stars.

    Of course, from my discussions with wumao on /k/, I'm pretty sure Chinese people don't actually understand the concept of second strike capability, since any discussion of hypothetical war between America and China escalates to "we'll just nuke America!" with no comprehension of how that would lead to China getting nuked right back.

      anon, the whole point of Dark Forest is you don't know where people are. Space is so fricking big your best guess to second strike is "a random direction".

      Look up theories of realistic space battles. It will be akin to a game of battleship, guessing which square has targets.

        Anonymous

        If you do a first strike, you've revealed the first strike's point of origin, because your attack can be tracked from where it began. Maybe your target is too primitive to track it - but any advanced third-party observers are going to see that shit and annihilate you. Even if they can't locate the exact point of origin, they will have enough information to know where to look in general and will begin scouting you out and eventually get rid of you because you're uncivilized and belligerent and the galactic community doesn't want such species around.

        So yes, if you do a first strike, you're signing your own death warrant. Accordingly, nobody's going to do first strikes, and that means advanced species won't be afraid of revealing their location to others and seeking out diplomatic and commercial relationships - because they all know that anyone stupid enough to ape out will be annihilated, and anyone smart enough to reach a technological state where they could destroy enemy worlds will be smart enough to figure that out and thus not ape out.

          Anon, you're thinking too small. Because space is so huge that there can't be a certain point. The "first strike" is literally blowing up suns/folding space/ summoning a black hole in the area.

          You do not "second strike", and if you do first strike in such a scenario, you better be sure as shit there isn't a second one. Unless you're dumb enough to not be sure.

            Black person, if people are targeting star systems in particular that's a clue that they themselves consider star systems very important and therefore live in one, so worst case scenario you send out stealth probes to every star system: if it's inhabited by a species that's advanced but hasn't made contact with the wider community, they're a suspect, and you & the rest of the galactic community investigate them and destroy them if the weapon used appears to match the weapon they have.

                My personal idea is to send AI probes with good sensors and with no identifiable markings, and just park them on some asteroids/planetoids n shit in star systems.
                If one or more detects that a high-energy weapon is pointed/fired at your direction or a fleet is amassing, etc., one or more probes split and detonate themselves in a specific sequence of blasts that is detectable by instruments on your own star system.
                So whatever a bad guy does, you'll detect it at the speed of light so you have a good chance to defend against it and/or prepare a counterattack.
                If the latter is a known fact by the would-be bad guys, it'll act as reasonable deterrence.

                DFT is countered by multiple-starsystem civilizations, you can't just alpha strike all that shit at once, you're risking your own psychotic ass in a massive retaliation.
                And (except for settings like the books) nothing suggests that space is densely packed with civilizations that would encounter each other before settling multiple starsystems.
                Also as soon as an alliance DOES arise, god forbid start a policing campaign then aggressive species would be filtered hard by the community/regime.
                It would just expand since many species would be wise to join just to secure their existence, with much better prospects for the future than just hiding in a ditch in the forest and hoping to not get seen forever.

                You can, and there would be no retaliation. You're thinking in terms of magic sci-fi sensors and the like. There's no way to know what is coming and to respond in time when it comes to exchanges of relativistic or FTL weaponry. You're thinking of terms of magic, not reality. There would be no scientific way to accurately predict where it came from, not to mention it could be launched from ANYWHERE, if it can launch something at that speed it can launch the launcher at that speed to position it 8 galaxies away from the galaxy they are in.

                So you don't know where it came from, and if you could trace it then you wouldn't have any idea where it come still.

                Relativistic and FTL is not something you can predict and defend against, which is what makes it so scary. Imagine everyone on planet Earth has a way to kill everyone else. In secret at any time. With no way to know who killed who.

                Masses of small cheap scout probes can be spread out in as many star systems as you want to bother with,
                It'd be extremely hard to hunt down all of them and remember, kinetic kill vehicles require MASSIVE amounts of energy by definition, detecting them is orders of magnitude easier than the probes.
                Constructing, or hauling all the required shit in a ship big enough for it into interstellar darkspace? It's like a (moving) lighthouse beacon in a clear night.
                A probe can just self-destruct in a series of blasts that signal a code that warns you about a launch or just construction in a suspicious location, the signal is easily relayed by more probes and it's a lightspeed signal, much faster than the object you need to accelerate up to relativistic speeds, giving plenty of time to prepare.

                True, but you'd need to give me an example to see how viable it is against a target that has comparable tech level.
                Nuclear or biological weapons can be survived simply by deep underground or deep sea habitats. Also they would generally be much slower than a KKV, so easier to intercept.
                A Death Star-like beam weapon maybe?

                It's not, you literally saw one way to do it in Three Body. And the projectile need only be around the size of a penny.

                And you're saying you can have magic undetectable probes with AI working independently...then they would have magic undetectable AI probes to counter your probes.

                I specifically stated that the probes simply self-destruct in a specific blast sequence to form a high power code signal, no magic or even high tech involved so your first two points are not relevant.
                We are talking about multiple star systems here, the lightspeed signal would arrive years/decades before the projectile.
                ...Unless you have closely surrounded the enemy's every star system with superpowered launch platforms all of which got undetected somehow throughout hundreds of years of travel (+construction). Remember, planet-surface-wiping amounts of power to accelerate the thing, that's not a small project.
                The AI doesn't need to be very advanced, they just react to specific stimuli with specific signals.
                And since detection of weapons can be done at much longer distances than of the probes, the probes would always be at an advantage, even if you build a high number of counters -(mobile) active detection-, the space of operation of the spread out scouts with passive sensors is much, much larger, needle in a haystack doesn't even begin to describe it.
                Plus you can have a lot of them on distant orbital or interstellar travel paths, no engines on, passive sensors only until they detect something.

                In TBP, the photoid is so much more advanced than the tech of either of the main species of the books that it's not a fair comparison, we must assume a roughly similar tech level otherwise it just skews possibilities towards either side heavily.

                >relativistic speeds... plenty of time
                Okay, let me explain fricking relativity.
                Suppose you have a 2 walls, 1 behind the other
                The one at the front has 2 slits.
                You start shotgunning paintballs through the first wall.
                The 2nd wall will get an imprint of the slits.
                If you understand that, you are now at newtonian intelligence.

                Now let's say these paintballs are electrons with particle wave duality. They act as both particles and waves.
                You shoot the electron balls what happens? Correct! they pass through the first wall and the 2nd wall gets random globs of paint. Because waves don't give 2 shits.

                Now let's put an electron detector between you and the first wall. What happens? Correct, 2 slits like the normal paintball - what happened to the wave property? See pic related, you are now at quantum intelligence!

                Now - here's the kicker - put that observer between the 1st and 2nd wall. So it's a wave on the first, a particle on the 2nd. What happens?

                Correct, it's the imprints! The timeline changed so now it has always been a particle, because it needs to be a particle when it hits wall2.

                Welcome to the forefront of Human discovery. We don't know why it's 1 or the other and the states change outside of spacetime

          You're moronic. The threat of a first strike being revealed is almost zero.

          First, you use the space equivalent of submarines. Small ships, orbiting stars for energy, with enough fuel to jump a few stars away. These ships have detection capability, and scan nearby systems for signs of life. Once found, you nuke it.

          Let's say you were too late, or an observer sees you shoot. First, the projectile is too small to be reasonably detected. Even if it can be backtraced after it demolishes a planet, it only reasonably leads you to a star system that has been evacuated a second after the shot was fired. The hunter moves after he shoots, he doesn't stay still. So the planet gets nuked, and then MAYBE an observer decides to nuke where the shooter was. Then MAYBE another observer decides to nuke where the first observer was. Etc, until one race decides there's no point shooting an empty hide and needing to waste time moving.

          With a few thousand ships, you could easily police a very large region of space with no real threat of reprisal. The only counter to dark forest theory is that it's impossible to hide life. Even then, all that happens is that space warfare is about moving around as much as possible so by the time anyone spots you, you've already left.

              There's not enough space in the galaxy for 2 intelligent species, buddy. It would've ended in war either way, and such wars will last millennia and have no clear victor.

              We're talking about wars of attrition on galactic timescales. You can make a billion drones in a couple of years with a basic production facility deep in controlled space, then slip them near any possible enemy system undetected because they're a single self destructing unit that moves at 0.5C or some other ludicrous speed until it finds a star system and nukes it. By conventional understandings of physics, these kinds of engagements would leave massive no mans land regions of a galaxy with no stars.

              There is no value to cooperation. Only the question of "are we big enough to wipe out the other half of the galaxy?".

            Why do you give the aggressors all the agency in this? What if there is a civ that maps the stars using self replicating drones and chart all the civs they come accross. They reveal themselves to each civ and offer peace and terms and bring them into the fold. Those that join are welcomed. Those that dont are left to be but monitored. Hostiles are nutralised. All of this can be done without reveling ones own location. If that even fricking matters wich it shouldnt because any civ with a brain would be aggresively expanding in all directions both planets and artificial habitats. Or even in just giant colony ships. Weapon point of origin could also be stored light years away. Also how about some system defences people, this bullshit only works with magic insta kill weapons anyway so why dont we get magic defenses too?

      Dark Forest theory is absolutely shit and its only popular based on the fact that it's a "moron's factoid", and sifi lover spergs can get behind it with no knowledge of actual science
      Much like quoting
      >"A Kobayashi maru test"
      >"The three laws of robotics"
      >"A Dyson sphere"
      >"The Fermi Paradox"
      >"The Kardashev types of civilization"
      Add "dark forest theory" to the pile
      All pseudofantasy shit that makes morons feel smarter than they are, for knowing a random sifi factoid, that requires no actual math or knowledge of physics

            Most animals (except fricking squirrels and insects) don't have a concept of amassing wealth.
            As such, more often than not, they do no kill for pleasure or stocking food, and that mindset of "why woul I kill it? I'm already fed" leaves to interactions like this

            Then you have the smallest, short temperamented animals, can kill out of fear.
            But the biggest, strongest animals, have nothing to fear.
            That's on earth alone
            But nooo, let's all abscribe ALL ayys human mentality of "i gotta kill them before they kill me"
            Even if there's countless examples of that not being the only mentality on earth alone, and certainly not the necessary mentality to survive.

We know that as soon as their usefulness was fulfilled, they were all sent off to do hard labour in rural China. But when Ye ended up meeting them, there were only 3 because one of them drowned in the Yellow River trying to save a goat or something, along with 3 others. One of them had gotten fat, another was really thin, and the last one lost an arm because it was crushed by a tank or something, not because it got gangrene like in the show.

      They don't strike from a position where your location can be determined
      THOUGH I guess you could do some bullshit to reduce the search space by determining the light cone based on timing, but realistically an advanced civilization would account of that too.
      HOWEVER after sufficient distances, the chain of suspicion applies to your "own" "civilization", because sufficient time and space will lead to speciation or ideological shifts. If you have strike platforms hosted far away from the powerbase of your civ, you have to worry about it being taken over and used to threaten you.
      It's kind of an interesting problem.

      The whole theory hinges on a pretty reasonable assumption: destroying things is easy. For an alien civilization whose mastery of the laws of the universe is nearly absolute, you can imagine how obliterating an entire solar system light years away is a trivial task, especially if you have no interest in leaving any survivors. This isn't just some speculative sci-fi scenario: dealing with any other intelligent being is a carefully weighted process which goes from wondering if your crazy neighbor has a loaded gun to modern international diplomacy.
      You're correct in assuming that there are lots of alien civilizations out there who do not possess the sort of strike capability necessary to wipe out a target civilization - it's reasonable to think they'd require greatly advanced technology. The problem is that you don't need hundreds of civilizations out there capable of such a feat, you just need a single one.

        I think it hinges on another assumption that's more uncertain and something that I don't really agree with. That all sentient life emerges from the same elements and thus would be competing for the same resources. I think about silicon based life forms who might have zero interest in occupying a planet like earth which is attuned to support carbon based life. Also, on a more optimistic note, I think the curiosity to interact with another species would overwhelm any fear a species might have about reaching out into the unknown. It's curiosity that has driven us to question and explore the nature of reality and develop all the science and technology today. I think it might be a fundamental commonality across intelligent life and many would just want to reach out and see if there are others in our universe. Not by some calculation of risk and survival, but pure curiosity and hope that they aren't alone in the cosmos.

    One issue with Dark Forest theory is that it hypothesizes instant annihilation weapons. The two illustrated ones are photoids and 2Dization. Photoids require a ludicrous amount of energy since they destroy stars. And 2Dization is fricking magic.

    A more realistic method of Dark Forest attack is self-replicating Von Neumann probes, but if they fail you are fricked, and if they were real then we wouldn’t be here.

              Our galaxy was among the first to cool and form planets as well as be free of intense radiation.

              Billions years before us there were planets that formed, but they were all still cooking from heat and radiation, life in any shape or form that we could understand couldn't exist.

              And you need to take into account the billions of years life has been on Earth which everybody seems to fail to do when thinking about life on Earth and only think about "when people showed up"

      That entire plot and the lovesick cancer patient character were pretty much just there to give the show some emotional backbone.
      The book can feel pretty autistic at times so I can see why it was added but I don't think it was particularly well done.

      Isn't your ship practically a 2d object from the perspective of an observer just chilling in space, like atoms and dust in space, because of relativistic compression?
      That would mean things would just phase through you at that point, maybe leaving a tiny radiation signature if they hit your atoms in a "lucky" way.
      I'm not a scientist though, just my modest understanding of relativity.

        There is a cut video game segment of the book that showed "modern" trisolaris and it was an emo nihilistic shithole where most trisolarans are dehydrated most of the time. Before they get the message from China they have pretty much given up and are just waiting for the planet to be destroyed.

        Obviously a planet is nice to have but the idea that such an advanced civilization that has access to sub-lightspeed and 11 dimensions wouldn't have prioritized the construction of massive habitable structures in space is just a contrivance for the plot to work.

              In the books they're basically harmless, the most they can reasonably do is cause partial temporary blindness by interacting with your eyes. They're photons, and they can't even alter their wavelength to give you cancer with UV or something. Are you scared of light?

              In the show, they're literal gods and could trivially kill anyone on earth, they just don't because dabid and dabid don't really understand anything they're writing.

          It's more contrived than in the series. Cheng is overseeing Project Staircase and a friend in casual conversation offhandedly mentions that a guy they went to college with was terminally ill, so she just immediately rushes to him and offers him a position as one of the candidates.
          It occurs to her than she's dooming this guy she doesn't even know well to a living hell so tries to get him removed, but Wade reveals he top scored all their tests because seemingly negative traits like being socially withdrawn and not notably intelligent would benefit the plan, and similar to the series he's one of two candidates that refuse to swear loyalty to Earth. The other suddenly died of their terminal illness before a team was ready to preserve the brain, so he wins.

        The problem is they split her character in half to give Jin something to do. Jin won't be in S2 at all unless they write in garbage for her to do, like whining at the pajeet for killing homosexuals. Auggie as a character is a fricking trainwreck, and they're probably going to make her the nog's wife in S2 so she can be even more annoying.

        So how do they see anything if they are an order of magnitude smaller than a wave of visible light? Or hear anything for that matter? How could they even possibly see a full snapshot of a single moment.

        Because they're a wave, a particle, and have perfect control of their movement and position. Don't worry about it, it's just plot convenience and soft sci-fi to explain why the aliens have perfect observation abilities but little to no interaction potential.

        A lot of the retooling is due to the fact all three books basically have isolated casts who don't interact, the show is made to have characters that mostly stick around from beginning to end.

        Auggie is mostly a character that solely appears in the first book, but her content in the show mostly runs out because a bunch of her actions were transferred to Jin, so she's instead set up as someone who will continue to matter in season 2 through her relationship with Saul.

        Jin is mostly a character that didn't appear until the third book, so they brought her forward and gave her a bunch of stuff Auggie's base character did to flesh her out.

        The end of the entire first novel is the ending of episode 5 (plus that ending scene of episode 7), so 6-8 are mostly things that happened in the later books, or setup for it.

          D&D just did Game of Thrones which had characters in different continents never interacting with each other, they know how to handle this but instead insist of making some soap op cast where every relevant player in the entire planet just so happen to all be best friends at the beginning of the show. It's way too corny

            The character writing in the source material is awful, it's the biggest change they've made for a reason, not just because of needing to keep a consistent cast together for the whole story

Then when humanity manages to survive despite this they plan to make it impossible to ever leave the solar system; for their safety. Wade has a group with anti-matter weapons telling them to get fricked we are building lightspeed ships. So the dumb c**t who already destroyed humanity once and is planning to destroy it forever asks him to put the weapons down. Wade instantly agrees and they all do, so Wade is executed. I haven't gotten to whether she succeeds in destroying humanity for all time.

      They never actually say they're coming in peace, it's always and invasion where they'll be taking Earth for their own, it's just that they only openly declare that humanity needs to go after they're taught the concept of lies and freaked out by it

      In the book the organization Ye Wenjie and Evans founded actually had three factions - the Adventists who think humanity suck so badly it deserves extinction and the San Ti are a means to an end, the Redemptionists who are religiously devoted to saving the San Ti and think solving the Three Body Problem means both races can benefit, and Survivors who think proving their usefulness to the San Ti will mean they're allowed to survive post invasion.

      This dynamic for all intents and purposes ends after the destruction of the Judgement Day leaving only a shell of the organization made up of Adventists, so in show it's all kind of merged into one and Ye and Evans softened since they're basically complete sociopaths in the book.

        The aliens don't lie because their intentions are communicated between each other automatically. Think of it like if you were to lie about being a woman. It makes no sense and nobody would believe it anyway because it's completely obvious through observation that you are not.
        They are entirely capable of lying, they just weren't aware of it being a thing because there was nobody that would be deceived.

      Same alien, he’s old and he’s unironically an incel (he knows he’s not going to be able to procreate because he’s super low in the hierarchy) so he decides to at least try and save another species.
      And no, they aren’t a hivemind and they can feel fear, it’s just that living on a planet that gets hot enough to melt rocks and cold enough to turn into a snowball makes a society push down these emotions. And he doesn’t lie, he’s in a listening post monitoring Earth’s section by himself since it’s a chaotic era and when his supervisor finds out, he can’t lie so they find out. The show really fricked this concept up as well

          A human later points out to them that the conversations with humanity are taking place across a non-native medium where their thoughts aren't being perceived so they could easily have omitted information or been deceptive, but it was something that simply did not occur to them until humanity taught them about it

        Compressing the first book was a fine decision. They still hit all of the major "scenes" with plenty of time to spare for cancer guy to die and for Saul to become a Wallfacer. 3BP is short compared to The Dark Forest.

        The only omissions I can really see one complaining about are Ye's life after the Red Coast base, which it seems they left out in order to make her a less sympathetic character, and a few of the later scenes in the 3-Body video game.

        How is it good? It has story beats like sophons, but it doesn't have any time to develop them. Instead, it spends time on characters... Who also don't develop. The most development is Will/Yun going whoops, I guess I can buy a star for my oneitis now - which is perfectly inline with the books, but also doesn't even pay off in this season.
        The sci-fi elements are just a backdrop for moronic characters now.
        As a book reader, I see both the pace and composition being impressively bad; it takes talent to achieve this.

    my favourite was when they reveal to the black guy he's a wallfacer at the public convention
    Where it's embarrassing if he doesn't go up and accept the position
    They already told the other 2 people
    but not him
    Why?
    Simply so they can have the scene where he's shocked that he was chosen
    Thats it
    They could have had him be shocked in a scene prior to this where it's announced to him, but it wouldn't be "as epic"
    Why is it more epic to have it be in the theatre or auditorium? I honestly don't know. Ask the writers
    But think about it logically for even half a second and while this is a minor thing compared to everything else, it just shows how little they care about telling a proper story that makes any kind of sense at all
