The Last Question

the final question Plot summary[ edit ] The story deals with the development of a series of computers called Multivac and their relationships with humanity through the courses of seven historic settings, beginning in In each of the first six scenes a different character presents the computer with the same question; namely, how the threat to human existence posed by the heat death of the universe can be averted.

In each of these eras someone decides to the final question the ultimate "last question" regarding the reversal and decrease of entropy.

Each time, in each new era, Multivac's descendant is asked this question, and finds itself unable to solve the problem. Each time all it can answer is an increasingly sophisticated, linguistically: Humanity asks AC, Multivac's ultimate descendant, which exists in hyperspace beyond the bounds of gravity or time, the entropy question one last time, before the last of humanity merges with AC and disappears.

AC is still unable to answer, but continues to ponder the question even after space and time cease to exist. AC ultimately realizes that it has not yet combined all of its available data in every possible combination, and thus begins the arduous process of rearranging and combining every last bit of information it has gained throughout the eons and through its fusion with humanity.


Eventually AC discovers the answer, but has nobody to report it to; the universe is already dead. It therefore decides to answer by demonstration, since that will also create someone to give the answer to. It subsequently played, as well, at the: In the final question thousand years, the entire known Universe.

The Last Question - Wikipedia

I wonder how many sunpower units it will take to move Galaxies of individuals from one Galaxy to the next. Already, mankind consumes two sunpower units per year.

  • The Last Question -- Isaac Asimov

After all, our own Galaxy alone pours out a thousand sunpower units a year and we only use two of those. Our energy requirements are going up in geometric progression even faster than our population.

We'll run out of energy the final question sooner than we run out of Galaxies. A very good point. We ought to ask the Galactic AC. It was only two inches cubed and nothing in itself, but it was connected through hyperspace with the great Galactic AC that served all mankind.

Hyperspace considered, it was an integral part the final question the Galactic AC. It was on a little world of its own, a spider webbing of force-beams holding the matter within which surges of sub-mesons took the place of the old clumsy molecular valves.

Yet despite it's sub-etheric workings, the Galactic AC was known to be a full thousand feet across. You can't turn smoke and ash back into a tree. The sound of the Galactic AC startled them into silence.
