it's Christmas right now, tell us, what happens to Christmas in the
future? You say religion has all but passed, yet Christmas now is
already losing its religious connotations.
Yeah we still
have Christmas, although all the cohabs celebrate it a little
differently, depending on the cohab. Some of them are trying to replace
santa with their corp. mascot, like kids won't know the difference.
Probably thinking it'll increase loyalty.
few questions. Since you mentioned riots, and you pic brings it up, how
is society outside the cohabs, if indeed it does exist? And how do the
two get along?
The only people who willingly live outside
the cohabs are the religious extremists who think they're
sodom/gommorahs or something. Most habs trade with them since
traditional handmade goods (i.e. not made and sold by the corp that
owns your hab) fetch a premium. You get pretty sick of the same few
brands after a while.
there been any events comparable to 9/11 (in terms of destruction, or
impact on humanity, or scale in general) since 2008?
terms of terrorist attacks, yeah, the biggest was the attack on the
first space elevator. There was obviously the civil war, too.
>>Future, do you have makers? As in, Machines that build food/necessities out of a base block with NANOMACHINES?
have little medical robots for microsurgery but no, none of them can
self-replicate. We have swarmbots though, lots of habs use them for
cleaning for instance. Just imagine a variety of different robots,
specialized for shit like repairing plumbing/electrics/photonics,
cleaning floors/windows and so on, ranging from the size of a grain of
rice to the size of a shoebox.
