Science fiction is a genre of fictional works that depict such fantasy content about science as future technology, time or space travel, parallel universes, artificial intelligence, etc. According to Isaac Asimov, science fiction is like a social experiment, depicting fictional societies. He sees science as the great and unifying principle of the earth, while using science fiction as a special medium to popularize scientific knowledge while prompting people to consider the connection between human beings and various aspects of technology and history, and to consider the harmonious development of human beings and society as a whole.

In my opinion, I agree that science fiction is also a fictional genre. Its narrative is driven by events, technologies or societies that are impossible, unreal, or take place in the future, in the past or in a secondarily created world. The genre exhibits different characteristics depending on the reality, possibility, probability and the author’s intention. The most essential difference between science fiction and other fantasy or horror “dystopian” works is that science fiction is based on rationality. The science brought about by reason is speculative – to a large extent it may be wrong, or even impossible, yet explainable from a materialist worldview. Science fiction may be pure illusion cloaked in pseudo-scientific falsehood, but it is plausible as long as the place where the story takes place is not magically created but actually exists.
