In this world every human want or need is provided for by machine. The world seems to be a vast utopia, free from war and want. But there remains a price. All animals have vanished and all creative activity has ceased. One journalist is out to discover why. Welcome to the end of the world. More
In this brave new world there is no hunger, no war, no poverty or want. Humans live, not quite together, in a world united under the beneficial hand of unlimited consumerism. Decades ago a team of scientists created the E/MC, a device which transforms matter, specifically waste, into anything the user desires. It is a world which appears to offer nothing but bliss, but to a careful observer there are a few key things missing, there are no more dogs. They have vanished, along with other more human creatures. All artists; poets, sculptors, musicians, painters have halted their work. All creative activity has ceased. Now a journalist, is out to find out why. He is on a journey through a seemingly utopic world, determined to fan the flame of desire in a world where nothing is needed and no want remains. It is the end of the world.
