The Story of Mike, My Fight For Lilly & My Defective Mind.
If I would right a book or movie it would be set in the future, a Person buys the newest program for Person’s ‘entertainment world’.
It would open to a news broadcast like we have all seen around the holidays when the News talks about the newest treading items. Only its summer because you can see kids in the yard playing on their devices.
Wait no they are not playing the kids are changing the height of the grass with their hand held devices. They look like phones, expect you get this feeling there is something just not right about it. So this much be years a head of time.
The women newscaster say that the “unseen before” like they always do, this program is climbing the charts and setting sales recorders.
The person say that might be fun, maybe I am will check ‘The StorE’ and see how much for it. But it kind of seems pricey now.
And the person knows that the price will drop in coming weeks. That Green had code that raises prices on ‘hot selling’ items. That is how they made it rich over night.
Green takes the current ideological picture of the network of everyone’s ‘entertainment world’ and pairs it with the data that is in ‘Your File’.
Green then will price an item excellently where it needs to be for as long as it needs to be biased on when people will buy it to the individual level making the most profits possible.
‘The File’ as it was called replaced credit scores from the old days.
It combined all your data you have done and are doing online, your shopper card, your GPS trail, your emails and texts.
It knows you better than you.
Some say in the beginning ‘They’ could tell a Lady was pregnant before she knew. People don’t really know if this is ture or myth. Because Green controls the records of history since everything went digital.
Some time ago, no one ever knows when, rumors pop up of people remembering something that wasn’t true.
Like that time in roughly mid nineteen nineties that when “Sinbad Genie movie” move never happened.
Or that book “Berenstein Bears” never happened it was “Berenstain Bears”. Back when there was paper and cardboard. Now there is just picture of books.
Green is everything that Green wants to be. No one really knows anything other than what they are told or they see. And can we even trust that?
The person does their job, goes home, back to work and the cycle if life continues. Till one day Person is siting on his char watching videos and an ad pops up for that game. Person has heard great things about it and first then everyone just moved on. The price was so low and Person wondered if the hype was true. And Person could splurge because of that bonus at Job.
So Person goes to bed after buying thing just play it tomorrow and let the game download at while sleep happens.
Well it was a bad sleep. So Person snoozed the alarm to many times and almost was late to job. So Person got cough up in the cycle of life work, home, work, home, work, store, home.
It was now his only day off and he was tired of watching videos. Person thought “I only get a day off every 16 days. I want to do more than watch videos or the news feed”. Then he opens up his entertainment folder and sees the game.
Person said why not. And opened it. It loaded and asked for his payment key to verify he paid for it proper like.
Then it unloaded itself to Persons ‘entertainment world’ and then asked the normal questions like Persons proper gender, assigned name, Green Key (for buying things in game) and date of beginning. “Seems like everything today wants more and more information” said out load, to his empty living room, as he clicked the button to finish the information requested form.
Then a face popped up. The face explained it could figure out what Person could say before Person said it.
Person said “not happening”
But clicked the “I understand” button anyway. The face explained that it would need a few conversations and access to the network to do what the face had previous stated it could do. So Person clicked “I understand” again. The Face then said “Thank You”. “I see you”. To which Person said “I see you too”.
Face then gave instructions that “Face need several hours to run some information”.
Person said “Fuck”. And closed it to do what ever it was doing. Then he decided to go to bed. Job starts early.
Person was walking into the big dark structure that was Job. He was glad he got this assessment when he was tested by Green’s placement department. There was ‘Making’, ‘Upkeep’, ‘Job’, and ‘Enforcement’. Which his class, the one he was born into, could be assigned. ‘Making’ and ‘Enforcement’ where the most dangerous. Alought ‘Job” was not without its own dangers. Everyone assigned to ‘Job” have to do time in ‘The Zone’.
‘The Zone’ was something that everyone knew about but didn’t want to talk about ever. It was where the ‘Unlisted’ and Criminals of the State where. But they still needed things.
And although it was ‘Greens” publicly stated rule to never sell to anyone outside of it’s network, money talks. And as a young man Person was sent to ‘The Zone’ for five seasons.
It was hell and it was disordered.
One could get their stuff stolen here. The first thing you realized is that when you are handed “keys” for your new room, is that you where not safe. This “lock” that your key operated was false security. And then a fear you never had before come over you. In one’s room in the ‘network’s’ city there were no locks because no one ever enter if you where not there, because that was against the public behavior rules.
But Person like on thing there. Person could get 1st meal at 3rd meal time. Person always like the taste of the eats of 1st meal better then anyone other meal or snack time.
Although it was not a place anyone in the network wanted to be. But one had no choice. You can not ever say No to ‘Green’. Because Green was you savior or your nightmares.The rumors where wild about what would happen but everyone feared being ‘Unlisted’ as a criminal of the State.
Let me know if i should keep writing it.
