Heptapod B has its own visual syntax semasiographic , akin to mathematical equations, some sign languages, and the notation of music or dance. More significantly, it is not sequential. China Mieville's sci-fi novel, Embassytown, also features aliens with a totally different sort of language to those known to humans. I reviewed it HERE. The detail below is for reference, and is spoilered, because understanding this is what the story is about on the page, though not on screen.
When a ray of light hits water, it is refracted, taking a longer, but faster route. It describes light in goal-oriented terms, rather than the more familiar causal, chronological terms.
It's like a lifeguard who can run faster than she can swim: she takes a longer route that has more beach and less sea, to get to the drowning person more quickly. The result is simultaneous consciousness, where you live in the present like a newborn baby and in the past and future.
For such beings, sequential speech is a slow and inefficient mode. But if you know the effects, the end, you know the future. Jemisin, Cixin Liu, and Ann Leckie, to name a few. But oh, his stories. A moving book about fate and free will that is destined to become a literary landmark of the s.
His versatility and intellectual restlessness have yielded an immensely pleasing book. Beautifully written and conceived, this is a marvelous, astonishing collection that we would do well to read before the worlds it conjures are upon us.
Urgently recommended. The stories in Exhalation are a shining example of science fiction at its best. They take both science and humanism deeply seriously.
