PROLOGUE



the year was 2019 and humanity was afflicted with a terrible sickness
๐Ÿค’
it was a time when harmony and destruction existed side by side
actually they were neighbors almost everywhere you looked
๐ŸŒ‹ ๐Ÿ—ป
all throughout history those without imagination sought after riches
but the price of their luxury was the suffering of others
๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’ณ
long ago this troubling contradiction inspired a story called progress
and this story silenced all other possible futures
๐ŸŽฒ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ›ฐ
๐Ÿ•ณ
but in the gaps and gasps, those with imagination persisted
and passed down an affinity for continuity and compassion
๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ•ฏ ๐Ÿ‘
as time went on a paradox grew within the story of progress

โฑ
now new generations arrive in a world simultaneously
alienated from history and obsessed with connection
๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ’ป
and now growing up is not about a loss of innocence
but an active refusal of ignorance
๐Ÿ†˜๐Ÿ”“โš–๏ธ
the year is 2019 and a humanely interconnected future is possible,
once a life-denying story of progress is rendered obsolete.
