Humans divide things. We divide life into plants, animals, etc. We divide colors into ROY G BIV.  We divide the Earth into things we call "Nations." None of those borders are found in the world--they are ways our human minds divide things for our own convenience.

National borders are historically recent. Borders between races and languages are arbitrary and arguable. Is it even possible or useful to have "borders" between spacefaring civilizations? In cyberspace? How about between Science Fiction and Fantasy and Horror, or between cyberpunk and MilSF and "hard" SF? Come help our panel of writers and scholars put the pieces together (or not).
