The Vessel – Writing

In 2097, society has been crippled by plagues and global warming, pushing humanity to live underground in glass complexes known as The Bubble. In The Bubble, every aspect of life including all responsibility is ran by a set of 7 corporations, keen to keep humanity alive and happy while reaping massive profits. The primary tools by which this is accomplished are a constant supply of emotional blunting medications, constant advertisements projected on the glass, constant monitoring of dopamine and serotonin production, and the virtual reality system known as The Vessel.

Quentin Nakamara must grapple with concepts of reality versus fantasy and decide whether he wants to live in the physical realm or commit his consciousness to the virtual forever. What does it mean to be human? What separates man from machine? And what value, if any, does reality have over the virtual world?
