Beijing 2214



In the beginning there was man, and for a while it was good. Then man said: ‘Let there be light.’ And he was blessed by light, heat, oil, coal, magnetism, gravity, and all the energies of the universe. But humanity in their imperfection fell victim to vanity and corruption. Pollution started to reach very high levels, despite the enormous efforts by all kind of entities. Leaders of man continued to pollute even more, ignoring all the signs of nature. Then man made the machine in his image. The machines worked endlessly to do man’s work. With the help of the androids, man grows stronger and overmastered the planet. for that time it was good… Cities became Mega-cities, Mega-cities transformed into Hyper-cities, but one in particular stood out…Beijing, it was a city with a size of a continent. Beijing growth was ruleless, trees were destroyed, rivers turned black as oil, most of the animals extinct. Consecutive generations of leaders ignored the signs of nature, and corrupted her. Everything was big in Beijing, dams to control the waters, international events to control the population, censorship to control world´s opinion. Meanwhile, people covered their faces, as an effort to avoid the inhalation of toxic gases. Big corporations, who controlled energy, contaminated the atmosphere with their unbridled toxic emissions, the population started to die poisoned, there was more carbon dioxide in the air then oxygen, and for a time it wasn’t good. To fight the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the Beijing Council produced millions of oxygen masks, but that wasn’t enough…man needed other solution. The leaders of men, scientists, politicians gathered at the Beijing Council, they need a way out… …So men started to combine themselves with machine parts and desined a suit which mimicked the process of plants, absorbing dioxide and transferring oxygen through our skin. The machines artificial intelligence could be seen in every facet of society, including inside of us, we evolved into a new and better human being, the Hybrid and for that time it was good…but for how long? “Is this the world we created,we made it on our own.Is this the world we devastated, right to the bone? If there’s a God up in the sky looking down, what must He think of what we’ve the world that He created” Freddy Mercury
