Inside Walls

INT. AWEENAS PLACE – DAYTIME

By haraldsando@gmail.com

Ben and Aweena comes to ‘her’ place. From the outside, it looks like a very modern building, aka a small Venus Project house. But on the inside, she has walls that look like wood painted with old white faded paint. She has a kind of ‘old style’ in her house, with old rugs on the floors and old furniture.

BEN
Wow, I wouldn’t guess these houses had wooden walls inside.

He touches the wall, and it feels like natural wood. He knocks on it, and it even sounds like wood.

AWEENA
(Smiling)
You like the walls?

BEN
Sure. I just didn’t expect these kinds of houses to have these kinds of walls inside.

AWEENA
Well, they don’t.

BEN
What do you mean ‘they don’t’?

AWEENA
These walls are not wood.

BEN
They are not wood?

AWEENA
No.

BEN
Well. What are they then?

AWEENA
It’s a morphing material. You can basically make it look, feel and sound like anything.

BEN
You can?

AWEENA
(Lightly)
Yeah. Would you like some other type of wall, maybe?

BEN
Oookay…

Aweena lifts her hands to control the wall structure through her lenses.

AWEENA
(Looking through wall types)
Let’s try…this.

Before she finishes her sentence, the walls turns into untreated dark gray concrete right in front of their eyes.

Ben backs off from the wall, startled.

BEN
(Looking with wide open eyes)
What the f… happened here!

AWEENA
It’s a different look….and feel. Touch it!

BEN
(touching the wall)
But…but…what…how can you do that?

AWEENA
It’s a morphing material. It’s on most inside walls now, so that people can choose what kind of feel they want inside.

BEN
You can choose the color too?

AWEENA
Of course.

She dials up a new color and suddenly the walls are blue.

BEN
Shit…wow…! Very cool. Very cool. I think the term ‘redecoration’ just took on a whole new meaning for me.

AWEENA
I’m sure it did… Still… I’ll turn it back to what it was. I kinda liked that.

EXT. CITY – DAYTIME

By haraldsando@gmail.com

Ben meets a ‘natural’ for the first time.

THE NATURAL
Do you know what time it is?

BEN
Don’t you have lenses? Doesn’t it say in your…view?

THE NATURAL
No, I hate that stuff. I don’t like to have these technological devices attached to me at all times. I like to use the natural ways, my built in visualization ability. I like to hear my own thoughts.

BEN
Ah, you’re a natural.

THE NATURAL
I don’t care about those terms. We’re all ‘naturals’. We all have abilities to visualize and to hear sounds in our heads, don’t we?

BEN
Of course.

THE NATURAL
Yes, and that’s what I’m doing.

BEN
But are you communicating also?

THE NATURAL
You mean, like, telephatically?

BEN
Yeah.

THE NATURAL
Well, a little bit now and then, but it’s not very reliable. (don’t actually know what he say’s here. Probably something more profound).

INT. ROOM – DAYTIME

By haraldsando@gmail.com

Ben and Aweena sits with a group of Aweenas friends.

BEN
But now that you don’t have any money and politicians anymore, who’s controlling the world?

CHRIS
(Teasingly)
Aweena is controlling the world. She’s telling everyone what to do.

AWEENA
(Hits him playfully in the arm)
Nooooo. Chris is controlling everything.

CHRIS
Yes, that’s right. I’m controlling everything.

Ben is smiling, looking at them teasing each other.

TOM
(To Ben)
Do you need to be controlled?

BEN
Well, um…I thought everyone needed to be controlled…

CHRIS
(smiling)
You can always be controlled, if you want to.

TOM
No, honestly. There are no one ‘controlling’ the world anymore. Like you had people before controlling the world, making decisions on behalf of others.

AWEENA
There aren’t anyone ‘sitting on top’ anymore.

TOM
We are controlling ourselves with something you would call ‘direct democracy’. We have a combination of humans and computers making the decisions.

BEN
So, computers are controlling the world?

TOM
No, absolutely not. Computers are only helping us. Just like computers were helping you, in your time. Controlling your money system, how much pay each worker would get, how much interest people would get on their money, or ships and airplanes with their autopilots controlling the direction, or your gps deciding your route. You decided the parameters, and the computer did the rest. It’s the same thing today.

CHRIS
We have computers helping us in everything from agriculture to distribution of food and…yeah….they are not controlling us. We are deciding the input, and the destination. We are deciding what we want, and the computers are determining the best way to get that. And as long as there aren’t any disputes between humans, we don’t need to be controlled. And there are very few disputes, now that we have access to everything we need.

TOM
Of course sometimes two families want to live on the same place. But it is pretty easy to determine who shall live there. It’s the one who came to the place first. First come, first serve. And no one can have a place as their possession if they don’t live there. So, if a family wants to live on a certain place, they can live there as long as they want. And when they move, and don’t use that place anymore, other people can use that place.

AWEENA
But of course, you can always build a new house close by, or if it is in an apartment building, you can build a new apartment. So, there can always be room for more people, but since there is a lot of land, there is very seldom people want to live exactly where someone else live.

CHRIS
There are so many places you can live. You can go and explore. Alone, or with your family, with friends. You can live so many different places during your lifetime.

AWEENA
The only thing politicians and the people ruling your world did, was to control how much money you got. And money was the illusion that you lived by, thinking that money was really needed to distribute abundance. But when we look back, it looks like it had an opposite effect. I suppose you saw that yourself, then. Some people were ultra rich, and had extremely much more than many others, while other were ultra poor, and didn’t have anything.

CHRIS
Even though we were all living on the same planet. We were all human beings born with the equal rights to the goods this planet has to offer. Today we simply manage our resources and create abundance for everyone. So there really is no need for any government.

TOM
If there are disagreements on something, we have consensus groups. If there is a disagreement about resources and what to do in a particular area, people simply come with their own suggestions. People meet directly, and discuss it. They are also aided by objective data from computers, if there is something that is possible to measure. If it is only based on feelings, they simply try and discuss, and then there are selected people mediating between them.

AWEENA
It becomes less and less. Before there were more discussions, until people really started to understand this new world, where people can actually live anywhere they want. And there were new places to live opening up, and new opportunities for life, everywhere, for everyone. Then there weren’t much more need for people to argue a lot about what do to when and where. They could of course argue about a public building. Where it should be. The shape, and such. Then we had competitions, like I think you had before, with architects, about how it should look. And then we simply voted on it.
