How would you like growing up sharing your body with a second mind to keep you company?
Kinda like a big one and a little one, and the little one causes most of the trouble?

I remember reading a short story where all that is left of humanity is a remnant on an orbital colony; all of Earth's people have been wiped out by aliens who haven't even bothered to try to communicate with the remaining humans. The orbital colony has high tech, its people live a utopian existence, but they've never been able to discern what are the goals or motives of the aliens.


That sounds like "Steel Beach" by John Varley. Only in his novel humans live pretty much everywhere in the Solar System except for Earth. The novel takes place on the Moon.

What can you do with a trillion terawatts and a few thousand fusion reactors?

The answer is surprisingly short.
