Last Book Standing

Civiliization is about to end, all achievements of humanity will be wiped out without a trace. You are in a public library and there is a capsule that can withstand the destruction but it can only take in one book. What is the book you choose to save for future civilizations?

Would it really make a difference if I put any book inside?

It would prolly be the book most relevant to the way in which human civilization was wiped out.  That way the planet of the apes could avoid it.

That is a hard one. It would probably be something practical though, not religious or political. Philosophical? Also a possibility, a different civilization should be interested in a different point of view.

I agree, it should be practical.

This is probably as good as anything in terms of practical.

Very odd choice JJ. That novel wont have the intended impact since the story is about the transition the kids go through when they are secluded from our civilization. The future reader wont know anything about that civilization and its norms though.

Ok haha to be serious. I'd probably go for Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. The next civilization would start off with a better set of tools to think than ours did.

This is a completely pointless exercise, because you're supposed to cram as much as you can.

Also some books are bigger than others, how can't you not fit 4 books in the space required for an encyclopedia?

All of this to say that I would probably save the 50 shades of grey series.

It's all nice and all, but without a way to translate it, it would all be pointless.
