Potential Story: Crimes from the past

Title: Crimes from the past

- In the future, all crime has ceased thanks to a combination of advanced technology and educational methods.

- Crime enforces of the future run on a program of punishing crime from the past, i.e. from people who are dead and whose crimes went unpunished.

- To accomplish that, whenever it is found out that an individual person committed a crime from the past, her body is exhumated, if that is available, and if not, people look for DNA traces of this person.

- Once found, the person is recreated in an accelerated genetic incubator, an punished (thrown into jail, executed, tortured) when it reaches a mature age.

- A radical group of rebels called the "pseudo-senecas" rejects the idea and erases or confounds DNA traces from target individuals.

- The pseudo-senecas is considered a terrorist group and the media play out that they are in the way of achieving "universal justice across time and space."

- The story plays out this duel between a society unable to move on from the past, and a group of rebels that believes it to be the only way forward.

After my third coffee of the day and my second workout

I finished my third coffee of the day and my second workout. I looked at the watch. It was only 4 pm. Of the three movies left in my Wunderlist, and all of them were Belarusian.

As my hypochondria was kicking back in - I was convinced I had a punctured eardrum - I decided to put on my heaviest coat and brightest beanie and went on a walk by the river. It was cold and icy and rainy, horizontally-rainy, and I felt as numb as I felt in that place on a beautiful sunny day.

I started to think if I knew anyone in this town whose life I envied? I walked over two miles, without finding an answer.

Next time you fail

You may think that you will work harder and finally “show them” how great you are.

Yet you don’t understand you cannot show anything to somebody who will never look at you again.

The only possibility of change comes from the physical world

The only real chance for change comes from physically relocating somewhere.

There’s no amount of technology that you can install or deinstall that will give you anything remotely similar to packing all your things, getting on a plane, and moving to a new city.

There’s no true possibility of transformation in the digital world.
