Chapter 1 Uncle Albert


19
th

February 2046
:


Lieutena
nt Stephen Lawrence was
walking
through

the
hectic

streets of the underground city, dressed in his military
uniform.
He
made a
wise

decision that immensely speed
ed up
his journey; h
e walked behind
an android that was escorting
an

old
-
fashioned vintage
robot and he listened to their
conversation.





I wish you would slow down.


re
marked the metal android
to the

stubborn

robot.

I can barely keep up with you.







I am programmed to arrive at my destination on time,


replied the

rusty
wheelbase robot.






I am also programmed to arrive at my destination on time,
but it doesn

t matter if we
are

a few minutes late, so slow
down before you blow your circuits.






I cannot slow down you metal moron; I must arrive
at my
destination
on time,


replied the robot as it skated al
ong the
crowded
corridor
,

jostling its way through the
human

pedestrians.


….

Stephen was highly amused as he had never witnessed a
n
event of a
robot arguing with an android before and he began
to laugh w
hen the
aggravated

android turned to the robot and
said.




Slow down you worthless piece of junk, I cannot keep up
with you; why
on earth
was I selected for
this crazy
assignment.





‘The reason why you have been selected for this
top special
secret
assignment is because
you have been appointed as my
armed
bodyguard

and your mission is to escort me safely to
my
planned
destination and to get me there on time.






Y
es I know what my assignment is

you
rusty piece
of
junk;
I am taking you to the scrapheap,


replied the android
with a hint of sarcasm, as it

scuttled along the narrow
walk
way

struggling to keep up
.





I am not amused,’

bellowed

the robot in an

angry tone of
voice. ‘I am a classic ZT127 prototype model and I was the
first of my kind and I will
soon
become a collector

s item
,

on
display in the main section of the museum
and that is more
that I can say about you; you
commonplace recycled piece of

junk. If anyone needs to be put on the scrap heap it is you;
would you like me to go faster? I better slowdown or else you
may overheat and blow you circuits
; if you haven’t already
.





As Stephen approached the c
ity square
he heard

a v
oice
calling out his name,

he looked around
and
he was unable to
see

who
was calling

out his name.





Stephen, I am over here,’ cried out the mysterious voice.







He

was pleasantly surprised when he located the whereabouts
of the
anonymous

voice and
he
saw his Uncle Albert
frantically waving his arms in the air, trying to attract his
attention. In a rus
h

of excitement Stephen

wedged his way
through the bustling crowds towards his beloved uncle.






Hi Uncle Albert; how are you?





With eyes full of love and admiration, Uncle Albert embraced
his
beloved

nephew in his arms and greeted him with a kiss on
the cheek.





Hi Stephen it is great to see you; it has been such a long
time; how devil are you?






I am fine Uncle Albert; it

is

really good to see you too.




Tears
of joy welled up in Stephen

s eyes as he turned his head

and gazed across at

the floodlights
,

which illuminated the new
city expansion si
te

that was still under construction.





My Gosh, Stephen
, you are looking well
, smartly dressed
in you officers uniform
.






You too Uncle Albert,


he replied

as he
re
focus
ed

his
attention upon his uncle

s warm f
riendly smile and his

greying
blond
bushy
eyebrows
,

which

were dancing
about
like two hairy caterpillars
above his bright blue
,

soul
searching e
yes
.




The rush hour was over and the menacing crowds had
disappeared

out of sight
.

Stephen decided to take a walk with
his uncle
and

have a closer lo
ok at the new construction

site. As they entered th
e site

Uncle Albert handed Stephen a
hard hat which he had picked up off the ground

and he said
.



‘Russell Hargreaves has always ad
hered to the Health and
Safe
ty R
egulations of the former world and he has drummed
this concept into my head, so from this point on Stephen, we
need to wear a safety helmet.’


As they walked onto the build
ing site Uncle Albert pointed his
finger and said.




My Gosh
Stephen; take a look at th
is

structural design, it
is superb. Look how the rocks have been left in the n
atural
state, aren’t they magnificent? When it comes to architectural
design and underground construction Russell
has got it down
to a tee and he
likes to keep things simple and basic, making
full
use of the natural elements. The rocks are the only natural

thing that we
have
inherited from the former world and it is
great that Russell keeps them uncovered so they
can be
admired
.



‘Uncle Albert, what will this section of the

city
become
?’



‘According to the plans this section of the city will be
completely landscaped and there will be some new
accommodation units built
over t
here.’



Unc
le Albert turned his head and

looked around with a
mischievous grin on his face.



‘Now Stephen
,

we are going to be

a little bit naughty and
we are going to take a slight detour.

I am going to take you off
limits and show you
some more of
the new city development
si
te, inside the cavern

and I want you to guess what it is
destined to become.’



They

continued their walk through the construction site,
rambling across
the rocks and the rubble.

Although Uncle
Jason was suffering from an arthritic pain
s

in his right hip he
gave no indication of his affliction and he
heroically

soldiered
on and kept up the pace.



They arrived at the forbidden zone
which

was completely
fenced off. Beyond the metal fence there was a huge natural
und
erground cavern
,

which was illuminated with an array of
high powered spot lights and
portable
lighting rigs. The bright
yellow cranes and diggers that were working
far
down below
in the base of the cavern looked like toys. Stephe
n stood back
from the fence

and he stumbled, and
he took a deep breath.




‘Uncle Albert, I feel dizzy; I suffer from vertigo and I am
afraid of heights; this cav
ern is huge, how deep it?’



‘At a guess, from the roof of the cavern down to the
basement it must be at least seven hundred f
eet, maybe more.
Anyway Stephen

I wa
nt you to tell me what

this section will
become.’



Stephen took another deep breath and he looked down at the
base of the cavern.




‘As a
wild
guess, I would say that they are building some
new accommodation.’


Uncle Albert laughe
d. ‘I knew you would say that’


He pointing

his finger towards the base of the cavern

and said
.




‘Stephen,

can you see
the section
where they are drilling?
If you look carefully you will see that there are some huge
metal pipes. The ones over there are the sections o
f the drill
and the ones

on th
e far side of the cavern are
the metal rods
.’
Stephen looked on in fascination as he watched the enginee
rs
operating their equipment

and
lowering the pipes into the
ground.






‘Uncle Albert

I have worked it out;
they building a new
sewerage waste plant
; am I right
?’


Uncle Albert express amusement and he lovingly put his arm
around Stephen’s shoulder.



‘What they

are constructing Stephen; is a natural energy
plant and they are drilling through the Earth’s Crust to
wards

the
Earth’s Mantle
. The Earth’s Core is a composition of
molten alloy of iron and nickel. As you already know
Stephen, I am not very technically mi
nded and I am not an
expert on
this subject.

Nevertheless I will try to explain the
process the best I can.
….
Basically
;

when

they have drilled
; they lower the meta
l
pipes
and rods
into the ground

to extract the
heat from the
outer section of the
Earth’s
Mantle, which is radiating out of
the Earth’s
Core. This process already produces around fifty
percent of our heat and energy

requirements
. Twenty percent
of our energy is produce from the insinuators at our waste
depot. Even the methane gas from our scrap food and
sewerage is used to make energy; it’s bloody marvellous,
it’s
absolutely
ingenious
, modern technology at its best
.


Russell has never been a big fan of nuclear energy because
it is a very difficult and dangerous process to get rid of the
radioactive waste. Russell’s vision for the fu
ture is to use the
natural resources to meet all of our energy needs and to keep
the nuclear energy reactors on standby as a backup in

the

event

of an emergency.

….
Apparently Stephen, the additional energy that will be
produced from this new energy plan
t

should be enough to
make Russell’s dream come true.’




‘Russell Hargreaves is an

absolute genius.’



‘Indeed he is Stephen;
changing the subject,

I love the
smell of earth and rubble, it is so natural.’




Their
conversation was abruptly interrupted by the sound of a
loud computerised audio voice.



‘Halt; stay where you are and don’t move.’




They
quickly
turned around and saw two shiny silver coloured
metal androids approaching them at speed.
Stephen and

U
ncle
Jason
were completely take
n by surprise when one of
the Law Enforcement androids began to interrogate them.




‘You have entered into a restricted zone, what is your
reason for being here?’



Stephen was not

mood to be cross examined by a
commonplace out
-
of
-
date

Class 3 android
,

which should have
been melted down as scrap and made into a waste disposal
unit. Stephen focussed his attention on the strange multi
coloured lights
flashing
inside of the android’s black
transparent head visor and he yawningly replied.





‘We did not realise that this section of the city is off limit;
why is it a restricted area, it is just a building site?’




‘That is classified information,’ replied the obstinate ill
-
mannered android. ‘Show me your identification or you will
be

placed under arrest and charged

with

trespassing inside a
forbidden zone.’



There was no way that Stephen would allow himself to be
intim
idated by a piece of junk metal,

so he decided to stand
his ground and assert his authority.




‘I am Lieutenant Stephen Andrew Laurence, of the Seven
Zero One, Light Infantry Division and this is my Uncle Albert
who is

President Russell Hargreaves’s

Chief Advisor and we
were totally unaware that this
was

a restricted area
.’


The powerfully built android did not seem to register any of
the information that Stephen had told him and it arrogantly
pointed its metal hydraulic finger at Uncle Albe
rt and
it
aggressively raised the level of its voice module.




‘He is not the President he is an imposter; show me your
identification or else I will place you under a
rrest for
trespassing inside a
forbidden zone

and impersonating the
President.’

….


Stephen shook his head in

disbelief
,

hoping that his wise old
uncle would intervene.




‘I did not say that
my uncle

was the President you dumb
as
s,

I said…; oh forget it, it doesn’t matter what I said because
you have got a loose connection inside your obsolete out of
date computer
mic
ro
-
chip brain.’



Stephen
anxiously

searched through his pockets and he looked
across
at his uncle

and anxiously said
.




‘Uncle Albert; have you got any form of identification on
you? I have

left mine back at my apartment and

I can see that
this situation is go
ing to get really messy and
out of hand.’



Uncle Albert solemn
ly shook his head
.



‘I am afraid Stephen, I am in the same boat as you; I too
have left my
ID

back at my apartment.’




Stephen had a sudden brainwave and his face lit up with
enthusiasm
,

and with a
cheeky confident
smile he turned to
the android and said.




‘Hey why don’t you take our fingerprints and take an audio
voice scan
,

which will verify who we are and then we can go
on our way.’


The android’s lights began to flash
more rapidly and
brighter
as it continued to assert its authori
ty.



‘It is a Class 5 offence to be walking around the city
without your personal identification; I
will
now place you
both under arrest.’





Uncle Albert was at the end of his tether
and
like an outraged
bull he assertively pointed his finger at the hostile android and

he bellowed
.




‘Now you listen here you worthless piece of junk; my
nephew has already informed you that I am the Chief Adviser
to the President and if you dare to place us under arrest I will
personally see to it that you are decommissioned, melted
down and tran
sformed into a public conve
nience. I
n other
words you
will become a communal shithouse

and i
f I was
you I would take my nephew’s advice and carryout a security
check here and now
,

and take an audio voice scan
along with

our fingerprints.’




At these harsh words the second android
,

which was an

updated model, responded in a more positive ma
nner and it
spoke in a rather pleasant

and

soothing

female voice.




‘We are going to take your audio voice scans and your
fingerprints; if the security check verifies your identity no
charges will be brought against you and you will be free to
go.’



Stephen
and Uncle Jason
placed the
ir right

palm upon the
androids


chest, which felt unpleasantly cold.
They
then
read
out a declaration to confirm their identity and the security
check proved positive in their favour and they were f
ree to go.


As they walked back through the city Stephen began to
express his anger.




‘I cannot b
elieve that we are using
antiques as Law
Enforcement offic
ers and we even let them carry

fucking
firearm
s
; that is just asking for trouble.’




‘Stephen I totally agree with you; the Class 3 Law
Enforcement androids should
either
be
updated

or thrown on
the scrapheap. So far we have been lucky that no major
incidents ha
ve taken place, apart from the time when one

of
the androids over heated,

blew its circui
ts and burst into
flames in
the city
centre
square.
Stephen’s anger tu
rned into laughter and his face lit up with a
cheerful smile.



‘That must have been really funny
,

I wish I was there, did
anyone get hurt?’




‘Apparently not Stephen; fortunately the event took place
after the rush
-
hour
and

the city streets were virtually empty.’


T
hey con
tinued to walk thro
ugh the city and

Stephen began
to
probe his uncle for some

information.



‘Uncle Albert;

I have been meaning to see you for some
time as I have got some questions
in

my mind and you are the
only one who can answer them.






Questions; what questions?






I want to know the truth about Babylon 6 but no one is

willing to discuss it with me.




Uncle Albert

s
cheerful

smile vanished off his face and it was
replaced with a look of apprehension
.
He put his finger to his
mouth and
he
made a shushing

sound and gently ushered his
inquisitive nephew to one side
,

and whispered.



‘Stephen;
I am not surprised that nobody will discuss
Babylon 6 with you, we prefer
to
leave those days behind us
.






Why is everyone so hush; hush about it?




Uncle Albert delayed his
response
and he had

worrie
d
expression on his face as he looked around to see if anyone
was listening in on their conversation.




The reason why nobody will discuss Babylon 6 is becau
se
it was so horrendous living
under

a tyrannical fascis
t regime,
and in addition to that

there is
still
the ongoing threat of war.






Do you think that the General will rise up
again?




As Stephen spoke these words he began to sense that his uncle
was feeling
really
uncomfortable and apprehensive
,

which
became more evident
in his reply
.





Some people think that war is imminent but I personally
believe that the war is over, but then again; one cannot be
sure. Stephen this is not the right time or place for us to be
discussing these sensitive issues out here in the pu
blic
domain; let us discuss the topic in private some other time.




Stephen kept on probing for
more
information but his uncle
would not waver.
He began to sulk like a
child,

sternly
sh
aking

his head in
objection
.




Uncle Albert you disappoint me,


he
remarked with an
obstinate
frown.

You

are just like the rest of them

afraid to

look back at the past. Please Uncle Albert I beg you; I want to
know the truth about Babylon 6
, and I have a right to know
.






Very well Stephen you persistent little
bugger, you win; I
will let you know the truth so long as you promise me that
you won

t to utter a word to anyone, as

w
hat I will be telling
you is strictly confidenti
al
.







I swear Uncle Albert, I give you my word of honour; I
won

t tell a soul.






Very well Stephen;

let

s go back to my apartm
ent and I
will

let you know what happened back in the days of Babylon
6.
























Chapter 2
Babylon
6




Uncle Albe
rt took Stephen back to his apartment on an
automated hover bus
. During their journey Stephen gazed out
of the window and he focused his attention on the wide range
of androids
and robots that were
wandering about the city,
which many were in need of repair.




Since the war the
android
-
robot

population had
vastly
increased

to the misfortune of those who suffered from
technophobia. Like it or not they were here to stay
and they
were a part
of everyday life. Robot
-
spotting had become one
of the latest trends amongst the citizens especially among the
kids
,

and the participants

each
had a score sheet.
Every

type
of robot had its own individual point

s value. The ol
d
revamped Babylon 6
androids
and robots
along with all the
latest models, when sighted scored the most points and it was
a fun way to pass the time.



Stephen
laughed and he pointed his finger

at an

android
that
trip over as it stepped off the walkway to cross the road.





Look Uncle Albert;
look at
th
at android

lying on the

ground, it has just tripped over?

Uncle Jason you never guess
what happened
earlier on just before I met you
.

I heard an
android arguing
with a robot; it was so funny. I think they are
great and I c
annot

imagine living without them.






Believe me Stephen; lif
e was a lot better without them,

when people had pets like cats and dogs

and budgerigars
.





When they

arrived at
the apartment and Uncle Albert’s

made
Stephen a good old
-
fashioned
English cup of

tea. Stephen
though
t

that the tea tasted rather strange especially when
sweetened. Uncle Albert began to laugh when he saw the
expression on
his nephews
face
, as he screwed up his nose
.


Uncle Albert took another sip of his tea and he made a
chomping sound with his lips.

It

is a required taste Stephen,
which one must grow accustomed too.




Uncle Albert

s apartment looked immaculate considering that
it was a bachelor pad

withou
t a woman’s touch!

Uncle Albert
presented himself as a traditionalist but he was a modernist
like everybody else and his luxury apartment was kitted out
with all the mod con
s and the

state of the art computerised
high
-
tech
gadgets
and toys. Inside the apar
tment there was a
pleasant aroma tha
t subtly lingered in the air.

Stephen inhaled
the scented aroma expressing his delight and Uncle Albert
remarked.





The sweet smelling fragrance that you can smell Stephen,
is the essence of the Lilly of the Valley; do you like it?




Stephen
took a deep breath
.

Yes I do like it; where did you
get it from?







That my dear friend is a secret, but I will let you have
some to take home with you. If anyone asks
you where you
acquired it from
tell them it

is

a secret
,

or else
I will h
ave
everybody queuing outside my door.




Ste
phen took a close look at the

multi coloured fish
swimming
about
in Uncle Albert

s
virtual reality
three dimensional
tropical fish tank.





‘Wow;
Uncle Albert
your

tropical fish are beautiful, where
did you get them from?










Young Kevin gave
them
to me; they are not real
,

they are
just an illusion

like everything else around here
. Kevin is a
very talented computer programmer, one of our finest. They
are not a
s

nice

as the real thing bu
t at least I don

t have to feed
them
or

clean out the tank.







Uncle Albert I really love you
r

apartment, you

have

got
class. What was your apartment like when you lived in
Babylon 6?






I had a beautiful apartment when I lived in Babylon 6 but
it wasn’t as nice as this one, because
this is my home and that
make all the
difference.




It was a nerve
-
racking experience
as
Stephen attempted to sit
down
on one of the invisible electromagnetic chairs inside his
uncle

s high
-
tech living ro
om, but after a while he grew
accustomed to it and
it

was really

comfortable. He impatiently


asked
his uncle

to tell him about Babylon 6 and in response to
his plea
;

Un
cle Albert raised his hairy caterpillar eyebrows
and looked him straight in the eye.




Stephen I will tell you the tale of Babylon 6, but pleased
do not interrupt me.






Uncle Albert leant back in his invisible armchair and he began
telling
his tale as Stephen sat in silence.





Now

Stephen, where shall I begin? Back in the year two

thousand and ten there was a sudden change in the global
weather pattern

and the wi
nter came early without warning,
bringing
the snow. Temperatures
plu
mmeted across Europe

and
they
dropped well below zero. In fact I remember it well
,

because
at the time I was on vacation in the Cana
ries. It was
early mid December and

the Canary Islands
weather pattern

w
as

also affected and it just kept on raining. Nevert
heless
Stephen; rain is far better than

snow and ice, so I decided to


stay in the Canaries for the entire winter and it cost me a
bloody fortune.

---
During that same period the temperature levels in Greece
were at an all t
ime high for the time of year and a week later

Turkey; which was a southern Mediterr
anean
country, had
snow and

parts of Australia had snow during
its
summer
season. Israel suffered a record
-
breaking drought and
Southern Spain was stricken with floods. The Earth

s climate
had been changing for many years but the
climate change of
two thousand a
nd t
en was a lot more
obvious

and it marked
out the beginning of the Ice Age. Basically Stephen, the
Earth

s ecological system was completely fucked
, if you
pardon my French,

and
it was
beyond repair but no one was
willing to come to terms with the fact. W
e just continued
living our lives in
side greed and vanity,

while causing

mo
re
damage to the environment.

Apart from
the
lip service no one
seemed to care about the fate of
our

planet.

We wer
e sitting on a time bomb and

waiting for the
inevitable to happen.’






Uncle Albert; I am sorry to interrupt you, but how did
Babylon 6 come about?





Uncle Albert gave Stephen a stern look o
f objection a
nd

he
removed his silver lightweight thermal jacket
and he took a
deep breath,

emphasised with a sigh.




For crying out loud Stephen be patient, I was
just getting
to that. I can see why you were the first baby to be born ins
ide
Babylon 6. Anyway Stephen;

let me get

back to
the

story.
It


was in the year two thousand and twenty o
n
e when the so
called Chos
en Few vacated Babylon 6,

and I was among
them
. When I first arrived
at the New Age city
I had mixed
feelings inside my emotions,
and
I felt excite
ment

and
apprehensi
on.

I had a strange eerie feeling

that there was
something wrong about the
place
.


At firs
t glance Babylon 6 looked like Paradise on Earth;
however this was
n’t the case
because the astonishing
luxurious

futuristic city had a wicked tyra
nnical regime
,

which came to light once everyone was trapped inside
with no
way of escape
and we became slaves. We alread
y were
accustomed to living

inside

a cashless society
when we lived
inside

the system of the former world and Babylon 6 was
more or less the same in that aspect.







Uncle Albert; how did the world
’s monitory system,
transform into a cashless society

and who was responsible
?






The Secret Society of the New World Order brought about
the changes. It al
l began back in the year nineteen sixty two
when the USA launched the Telstar Satellite into space to
orbit the Earth. Not only was it the first satellite to be
launched into space, it was the beginning of a global
intercontinental telecommunications netwo
rk and a global
intercontinental computerised information data bank. Most
people just accepted the new advanced technology as a part of
the human evolution, but they failed to realise that it was a
well planned malevolent evil trap.
High level corruption w
as
used to
instigate

the global cashless society
,

and
this

was
carefully engineered by the power
s

that be. Back then the
New World Order was
an
invisible
entity, which was

virtually
unknown
,

and that is why the citizens of the world

s nations

were so gulli
ble. First of all

the powers that be brought about
a
mass
world recession
,

which in reality was global
oppression. The global economy was in
turmoil

and a handful
people like Russell and I knew exactly what was going on
,

but
everybody else was living in cl
oud cuckoo land and they were
bli
nded from the truth by

their
greed and vanity.


A national recession is feasible but a global recession is
impossible
,

but
like magic
the New World Order made it
become a reality. The
Planet Earth’s

wealth did not suddenly

disappear into thin air and it had not
been
taken to another
planet by aliens from out of space. What really happened
Stephen; the global economy collapsed over night and the
wealth of the nations ended up in the bank accounts of the
affiliated members of the New World Order and their
associates. Th
ere was
widespread
anarchy and riots taking
place in every nation
,

and the world was on the brink of a
mass
global revolution
. For years the music and film industry
had been feeding the youth culture
s with scenes of violence,
greed and vanity;
stripping aw
ay the moral fibre
from

Society
and this was all a p
art of the plan to bring about

chaos,
disorder and
social

decline. The Babylon 6 project

had already
begun the construction of the new age cities
,

and this is where
my

story

begins
.’






Uncle Albert, I am sorry to interrupt you again
,

but I still
don

t understand how the world leaders were able to get all of
the Earth

s inhabitants to agree to have

computerised
micro
-
chip implant
s,

placed i
nside their bodies.







The powers that be
were able to trick people into using the
new techno
logy. Virtually everyone had a mobile phone that
was connected to the global internet. Then the manufacturers
produced a mobile phone called the Smartphone, which
Russell often referred to as the not so smart phone. These
technically advanced phones contai
ned microchips called
smart
-
chips and they were linked up to the global satellite and
computerised information databank. This highly sophisticated
technology enabled the powers that be to monitor and survey
everyone’s conversations and to track their where
abouts, and
it was the prototype of the fast approaching evil system of the
cashless society; which was of the devil.

The powers that be also
used the fear factor of terrorism
and crime to justify the
implementation of the new
computerised implant technology and they said that it would
make

the world a safer place
. The British Government made
out that there were hundreds of thousands of illega
l
immigrants residing in the UK, which
were unaccounted for
a
nd that many
of them
posed a
serious
threat to
the
National
Security. This was a dirty stinking lie and the whole thing was
set up and
en
gineered by the New World Order

to
enable
them to
obtain
w
orld
d
omin
ion
.
Stephen t
he strange thing
was; the Bible told
of these forthcoming events in Chapter
T
hirteen of the book of Revelation

and

it spoke of
the
number
six, six, and six,

which is the number of The Beast.


There were three main companies that were set up by the
New World Order, which Russell would refer to

as the Queen,
Bishop and Rook; as in the game of chess. The three
companies were Mondex, Echelon and Monsanto GM Food.
These three companies were set up to bring about the changes
that would aid the New World Order in their quest for world
dominion. GM Fo
od was an abbreviation of Genetically
Modified Food products and they developed seeds that would
only bare one yield of crop, so that the world would become
dependent on them. Echelon is an ancient Greek word, which
originally meant to rule with negative c
ontrol, like in a
tyrannical fascist regime. Echelon as in the company,
developed a highly advance global satellite computerised data
bank. Mondex was an abbreviation of the words Monetary
and Dexter, which meant the right hand, and they developed
the micr
ochip implants, which were later used in the cashless
society; hence the implementation of the New World Order
and Babylon 6.



In the year two thousand and twelve the British
Government implemented a Law that all dogs in Northern
Ireland would have t
o be micro
-
chipped. This was the
prototype and the birth of the Cashless Society.’



‘Uncle Albert; were the politicians to blame for the changes
in the modern world system?’





‘No not entirely; politicians come and go, but the unelected
governing body of the powers that be remained the same,
therefore they were the ones who were in control.’






At these words
,

Stephen
began to
fe
el

uncomfortable.






I have never read the

Bible; I heard that it was banned

and
that
it was destroyed along with all the other th
e religious
books, is that true

Uncle Albert?






‘That is correct Stephen
, it

was banned by the New World
Order
,

but if you would like to read the Bible I can give you a
copy of its data file, but don

t tell anybody
because
officially
it is still illegal to re
ad any kind of religious book, but these
ambiguous laws are currently

under review.




‘Uncle Albert; in your opinion
,

what was the greatest
invention ever created by
humanity
?’





‘I would say that computer technology
was

the greatest
invention and
the greatest asset to humanity,
but it became the
greatest weapon against humanity

and it brought about the
destructi
on of our planet
.





‘Surely Uncle Jason; the nuclear missiles were the greatest
weapon against humanity and they brought about the
destruction of the Earth.




‘The nuclear ballistic missiles relied on the computer
satellite technology in order to hit their targets.
Anyway
Stephen let’s
get
back to the story. On the surface the
luxurious new

age city appeared to be the ideal place for
anyone to live. When we first arrived no one was allowed to
take in any valuable items
. Financially everyone had an equal
status; well at least

in theory
.


At the time this notion suited me down to the ground as I
had
always been an anti
-
capitalist
-
come socialist and I was
well and truly into the sixties hipp
y

concept of everybody
living happily together inside ut
opia,
with
in a
democratic
world where everyone was regarded as equal.






Uncle Jason; were you around in the time of the hippies
and did you go to Woodstock?







No I was not you cheeky bugger; I am old but I am not
th
at old. I was born in the year nineteen eighty t
wo,
which

make
s me;
what year are we in now Stephen?






‘We are now in the year AD two thousand and forty n
ine.






Blinking heck Stephen that makes me sixty six
; beg ya
pardon, that makes me sixty seven years old.


After the sixties and seventies the hippie culture began to
phase out; it was

never designed to become a
mainstream
fashion trend

and we became a dying breed and replaced by a
band

of hooligans a
s

Society saw them as less of a threat.







Why did Society see them as less of a threat?





‘The hooligans were divided against each other
,

whereas
the

hippies were united as one
,

which meant strength in
numbers. Anyway Stephen,

let’s
get back to the story.


As time passed by I began to realise
that Babylon 6 was an
evil place and

that
we were
trapped

inside a tyrannical regime
that infringed upon our human rights, like our rights of
privacy and
the
freedom
of expression,
and there was no
turning back or any way of escape
.

Believe me Stephen it was
a te
rrifying ordeal
.





Stephen

s heart was filled with sadness when he saw the grief
-
stricken tears of sorrow welling up in his uncle

s eyes
,

as he
reflected upon the horrors of the past. Uncle Jason was so
upset that he was unable to carry on with his
heartr
ending

tale.
Stephen began to cry as
his
childhood memories of Babylon 6
c
ame back to haunt him

with the ominous vision

of his
mothers anguish and her countless tears. The innocence of
Stephen

s childhood swiftly came t
o his aid like a guardian
angel

remi
nding him how it had
once
comforted and protected
him from the dark demonic forces of the Babylon 6 regime.



He

gave Uncle Albert a reassuring hug and
he

kissed him on
his cheek and
he
returned back to his chair. Stephen turned his
attention towards an old antique vase
standing
beside a
porcelain figurine of a
n

elegantly dressed woman who was
walking a dog; the two ornamental pieces were stood upon a
shiny

metallic stand beside his uncle

s favourite armchair.
Joy re
-
entered Uncle Albert

s heart and
it
shone out from his
eyes. Stephen could see that his uncle was a true hipp
y

at
heart
, in the purest sense!







Uncle Albert walked across the room to get the porcelain
vase
.

He carefully handed it to Stephen

and he said
.




This vase belong
ed

to your grandmother, it was her
favourite and the reason why I keep it over there beside the
chair is because that was your granddad

s favourite arm
chair.




Stephen carefully examined the pearl white
porcelain

vase
that was adorned with an array of pretty little flowers

and his
beloved uncle said
.






The vase which you are now holding was made in the mid
nineteenth century by Royal Worcester
,

which was an old
English pottery
,

and the flowers
are

painted by hand.






It is beautiful; it
must have been worth a fortune.






Yes indeed it was worth a lot of money
;

Russell managed
to smuggle the vase
and

your granddad

s armchair into
Babylon 6

inside one of his containers.





Uncle Albert carefully replaced the vase back on its stand
alongside the Royal Doulton figurine and he sat down in his
chair. Sensing the sadness in the room

he
decided to lighten
up
the conversati
on.







Stephen when can anti social behaviour be put to good
use?








I don

t know;
I have no idea
.




Uncle Albert leant sideward in his invisible armchair and he
let off a really loud fart and
he
fell about laughing.
Stephen


was completely tak
en by surprise
by his uncle’s strange
unruly behaviour and
with a
bewildered

expression upon his
face

he remarked
.








Uncle Albert that was disgusting; I hope that it doesn

t
smell.







I am just giving you an example Stephen; a fart contains
inflammable gasses
such as

methane
,

which can be used as
fuel to produce energy. Therefore Stephen
,

my anti social
behaviour ca
n be put to a good use;
all

you
need

to do is to
shove a hosepipe up my ass and connect me to the
gas main
.




They both fell about in fits of uncontrollable laughter and then
Uncle Albert continue
d on with his story.





Stephen; at the beginning

it was a crazy experience living
alongside the technically advanced androids and robots; i
t was
as if we had been

caught up inside a rapture and
teleported
into the future.

Babylon 6 was a beautiful city and it provided all of its
citizens with first class
accommodation and
luxurious
comfort.


When I
had
lived inside the
former
world before the Ice
Age, I had
resided

in some of the most luxurious hotels
on
Earth

but none compa
red to the state of the art, high
-
tech
luxury of Babylon 6; in fact they did not even come close.
Babylon 6 was built with the finest materials from the top
right down to the basement levels.





Enthused with inquisitiveness and excitement,

Stephen
interrupted his uncle again.





Uncle Albert what did Babylon 6 look like
, I can barely
remember as I was just a kid.





Uncle Albert gave Stephen
anoth
er stern look and with a

disapproving sigh
he

shook his head

and said
.





All in good time Stephen, all in good time. I will describe
to you what Babylon 6 looked like as I tell you the story, but
pl
ea
se Stephen; no more interruptions
.
Now where was I?

Alright Stephen; close your eyes and I will tell you a story
that will blow your mind.
I will describe to you what Babylon
6 lo
oked like
. Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare, eat
ya heart out
.




I was
strolling

around

the
upper surface level of Babylon 6
and

admiring the beautiful
scenery of

the

abundant parklands
with their
qua
int picturesque gardens. I
sat

on the bank of the
river that flowed through the city. I
then
walk
ed

along the
tranquil

riverbank admiring the
craftsmanship of the many

bridges and waterf
alls.
I arrived at the
main
plaza with its
wide range of bars and rest
aurants
where
I decided to treat
myself to some lunch at my favourite bistro
.

I

like everybody
else
was fully aware

that drinking alcohol was strictly illegal
and the fact that we were allowed to drink beverages
,

like
none alcoholic
wine, beer and rum et
cetera, was a blessing in
disguise and they tasted just as good as the real thing

if not
better
.

I sat down

in

a
cozy
armchair

relaxing in the terrace,
dreamingly
gazin
g across the river at open
-
air swimming pool
that was next to the cinema

and

I began to reminisce
up
on my
own childhood thinking of the times when I went swimming
with my friends. When I was a kid my local swimming baths
was pretty basic and it didn

t

have

diving board or
a slide. The
one across the river had everything; a giant wave machine,
numerous slides and diving boards. In spite of all of its
many
attractions it lacked the most important thing of all; it did

n
o
t
have
the
fun

factor
because there were

too many rules and
regulations and one would be a fool to push
ones

boundaries
as it may end up costing
them
their life

along with their
family
.

I turned my

attention to
an

incredibly attractive blond
waitress

as she bent over the tables while she served the
customers, revealing her enticingly sexy thighs.

It

is
a pity
that she is an android; but then again, she is always very polite
and at least that is a bo
nus; who would
ever
have thought that
Hell would
one day
be on Earth!

I quickly finished drinking my
ice cold
beer and I took
a
leisur
ely stroll through the parkland along
side the lake.
All of
the plant life
and

trees w
ere

either
genetically modified or
man
-
made

but from a distant
one

could barely tell them apart

from the real thing
. The mere sight of the robotic wildlife with
the ducks and swans painfully grieved my heart and
anguished

my sou
l. How can anyone enjoy the pre
-
recorded
sound of the birds singing in the trees when you can
not

see
them flying in the sky. I guess
with one’s

own vivid
imagination they could fantasize that they was living inside
the real world
,

until they looked up and saw the huge electric
pylons and the hemispherical wire mesh
that
was use
d for the
electromagnetic force

shield
,

which

covered the entire city.



Temptation got the better of me and I looked up

and I saw
the strange
fusion light
n
ing effect of the electromagnetic force
shield

and it brought tears to my eyes
,

knowing that I would
never see a
majestic
sunrise or a beautiful golden sunset ever
again in my life.


I wiped

away
the
tears
from my eyes
and I head
ed

back
into the city centre so I could preo
ccupy my mind with other
things. I was
unable to get on a hover bus because there were
too many people queuing; luckily I was able to flag down a
hover taxi
,

which

drove me
across to the Northwest side of the
city.
I travelled across th
e city with my android chauffer,

painfully listening to its
lifeless
monotone voice and its
tedious
mind
-
numbing

conversation
,

which
was mak
ing me
feel even more depressed.

I stop
ped

the taxi a
nd walk the rest
of the way. It was the

first time that I had ventured across to
North side

of the city
which

was even more impressive than
the South

side of the city. The electromagnetic pavements
were amazing

and a whole lot of fun
, all that you had to d
o
was to stand on them and then you began to float in the

air
and move forward

and if you wanted to turn left or right, you
just had to lean in the direction that you wanted
to go and let
the gravity do

the rest. At first it took some getting used to
like
on ice, but then it became as natural as walking and it
put
a smile on my face and made me feel like I was a kid again
.


The outer boundaries of Babylon 6 were
strictly
off limit
and there were giant high definition TV screens
which

issued
a
clear
-
cut
warning. The outer perimeter of Babylon 6 was
surrounded by a high voltage electric f
ence,

which would
frazzle any trespasser like a fly in a
trap if they got too c
lose
.
While I was across the
North

side of the city I visited the
museum
,

which

was a

sheer and utter

farce based upon lies t
o

reinforce the Babylon Systems fear factor
, and history had
been rewritten once again
.


Babylon 6 had many elevators and stairways and one could
quite easily lose their way. The
highly
complex
electromagnetic elevator system was out of this world
;

you
could travel in any direction

you so desired
,
forward,
backward, sideward a
nd even diagonally. Russell
has
always
believed

that the more
complex

a thing
is
, the more likely it
will break down. As far as I can
remember

the Babylon 6
electromagnetic elevator system never broke down and it was
a hundred percent

reliable.


Although the surface level of Bab
ylon 6 was incredibly
beautiful

there were other sections of the city beneath the
ground that were even more spectacular. These sections of the
city were designed to simulate the na
tural
wonders and
characteristics of the former world. My
two
favourite sections
of the city were
on
Level 3 and 4. Like the surface level the
y

were
well designed and
beautifully landscaped. The main
leisure facilities were located inside these
two
section
s and
there was gymnasiums, fitness centres, sports centre
s
,
swimming pools, cinemas et cetera. When it came to
recreation we were spoilt for choi
ce but for some reason or
other, Babylon 6 suppressed the Arts. Music and A
rt were not
entirely
illegal but on
e would need to acquire a permit
and a
special license, which
were difficult to obtain.

The Level 3 and 4 of Babylon 6 were designed to
simulated the night and day and during the
daylight hours they
used what they
referred to as

Blue Lighting, which according
to the scientist is essential
to

our health. It has got something
to do with
the
stimulati
on of
our minds and our emotions.
Th
ese ultra modern
sections of the city were
primar
ily
made
of glass and ceramics and they supposedly exhibited
modern
-
day
architecture at its best displaying
a unique

contrast of
shape and colour
; although Russell would n
ever

agree to that
.
In my opinion; Level 3 and 4 had a certain beauty and charm,
with
its

genetically modified
plant life and
its

illuminated
waterfalls, streams and fountains.


Ye
s indeed Stephen, these

sections of the city were
therapeutic, as one could see a computer
-
generated sunrise
and sunset as the day turned into night and vice versa.
Admittedly
it was a bit gimmicky
,

but
even so

it was

a
pleasant relaxing experience
, one wh
ich I will always
remember

and it did help to re
duce

my stress level

and ma
ke
me

feel
a lot
better.


Apparently Stephen, according to the scientists, the
perception of day and night is programmed in our DNA and
that is why Russell has stuck to the same p
rinciple of
differencing

night from

day with the lighting inside our city
complex
, it helps to prevent us from going insane
.








Uncle Albert; I often wondered why the night
-
time hours
are in darkness; I always assumed that it was
just a
gimmick.
Did Babylon 6
ever
seem claustrophobic

in any way
?





‘Apart from the regime

or when I was digging out a tunnel,
Babylon 6 quite the opposite.









Chapter 3 Virtual Reality


At
this point of Uncle Albert

s intriguing tale Stephen could
not resist the temptation of interrupting again.






Uncle Albert It sounds like Babylon 6 was a really cool
place to live, so why is everybody sup
pressing their memories
of it, as if it had never ever existed?







Stephen, in spite of all of its extravagant luxuries, life
inside Babylon 6 was horrendous. Although we lived in
side

luxury and comfort and we were well fed, we were slaves
trapped

inside an evil oppressive tyrannical regime with no
way of escape. Everyone lived their lives in fear and no one
trusted anyone, as any
citizen

could be used
by the system
as
an

informer or a

spy
, even without their knowledge. The
System Controller knew of everybody

s whereabouts at all
times and we wer
e kept under close surveillance

twenty
-
four
hours a day
.
Ha, if anyone farted the System Controller would
know about it.
Everyone had

computeri
sed microchip
implants in
their
right hand or in
their

forehead and we
nicknamed the implants as The Mark of the Beast because
each one had
its own

individual personalised databank
,

which
contained a b
arcode made up of three sixes.
There were
numerous came
ras everywhere and high
-
tech surveillance
systems throughout the entire city and there were very few
blind spots where one could hide off camera.


Stephen; I am now going to explain to yo
u how the basic
system of Babylon 6 worked, but before I do, I am going to
make us another pot of tea a bite to eat.





Uncle Albert left the living room and he walked through to
the kitchen and the fact that he had paused for a break
reminded Stephen of the old 20
th

century TV programs and
TV adverts that his mother showed him when he was a child,
back in the day. Some peo
ple may have seen the

adverts

as an
intrusion but Stephen felt that they added to the excitement
and
they had
kept him intrigued of was to come!



Uncle Albert returned

to the livin
g room and he served the tea
and biscuits

then

he continued on with his story.




Inside Babylon 6, everyone had their own living quarters.
If you were single or if you were a couple you lived in a one
-
bedroom apartment and families would live in a two or three
bedroom apartment. All of the apartments were immaculate
and kitted out with

the state of the art furniture and hi
-
tech
equipment. Babylon 6 had its own internal computerised
onscreen internet telecommunications system that anyone
could use at any time. In actual fact we had to use the internet
system to do our shopping as there w
ere no shops or
supermarkets inside Babylon 6 apart from the bars and the
restaurants. All you had to do was to place an order online;
the credit would then be deducted out from your personal
bank account and then
within twenty
-
four hours
you would
receive

you
r goods
. The items would be delivered to your
apartment by a robotic automated transportation unit and it
was as simple as that.


Eve
rybody who worked inside Babylon 6 was on the exact
same salary and the only difference was that some citizens
worked less hours that others. There were three main wage
categories A, B and C. The A category workers included
people like the chief engineers
and the senior medical staff
and so forth. The B category included
skilled workers like
engineers, nurses, teachers et cetera and the C category was
for labourers, domestic staff and refuge collectors and so on.


The category A; personnel worked fewer hours than the
worker
s in the other two categories. The Babylon 6 monetary

system

was a
cas
hless society just
monetary sys
tem that we
have now, therefore

every financial transaction and monetary
exchange was recorded in the main computer. No one was
permitted to make any monetary transaction into anyone
else

s bank account.
If anyone required

a loan

they had to
clear it with the Main Controller; but the chance being grante
d
a loan was virtually nil.
If you were able to obtain a loan it
would put you further into debt and if the amount that you
borrowed was substantial they would have you by th
e ball
s

and you wo
uld end up with a lifelong debt

working your ass
off just to pa
y

off
the
interest.


The most advanced entertainment leisure facility inside of
Babylon 6 w
as the Virtual World.


Oh my Gosh Stephen, it was amazing; it was the most
astonishing experience that I had ever had in my entire life.
Inside of the Virtual World you could be anyone you wanted
to be and hav
e any life experience that you could possibly
dream of.


Every computer that was inside Babylon 6 was linked to
the main computer. The co
mputer system that controlled the
Virtual World was the most advanced hi
-
tech computer
system ever invented and brought into service and it was the
state of the art technology. Alth
ough it was a standalone
system

it was also linked up to the main computer.





‘What was it
used for?







Well Stephen; the Virtual World was an extremely
advanced computerise leisure facility where one could have
v
irtually any kind of experience that they so desired; You
could swim with the dolphins, climb a mountain or take part
in a
any
sport
ing

event and so forth. There was a limitless
variety of different virtual reality programs that you could
select from.


Inside of the Virtual World, I have, skydived in every
c
ontinent of the former world.

I can remember my very

first
visit
,

when

I skydived over New York City in the former
USA and

I touched down in Central Park;

i
t was great.


First of all I had to strip off naked and take a shower and
then I was dressed in a bodysuit
,

which
resembled

a diver

s
wet suit that was made out of fabric and it contained
numerous optical fibre cables and electro sensor devices. I
was escorted to a special room where the members of staff
placed a visor over my eyes and
they
sat me down on a chair.


In a blink of an eye I was a passenger on board a small
light aircraft with a pilot and two other guys and a really sexy
chick who was wearing a
low cut thong

leotard. I watched in
amazement as

two of the crew members jumped out of the
plane
, then

t
he sexy
hippy
chick strapped on her parachute,
and

she
stood in front of the door wiggling her bum

at me
, she
blew me a kiss and
she
jumped out of the plane
,

and then it
was my turn to
Jump.
I jumped
out of the plane
and I began
freefalling thousands of feet way up in the sky above New
York

City. I could

feel the breeze
of
the air current all over
my body and when I looked up I saw our transport plane
flying off into the distance.


I am telling you Stephen it wa
s an amazing experience as
good

if not better than the real thing. I even felt a tug when
my parachute opened and I gently descended out of the sky all
t
he way down to the ground and I landed in Central Park. To
my surprised the virtual reality continued
on and I saw people
in the park

playing football and walking their dogs
et cetera

and a very attractive blond woman came jogging past

me and
she gave me a

friendly
engaging smile.
Apparently it had all

taken place

inside of a wind tunnel
but it seemed so real.
I
soon
became
an addict

and I spent most of my spare time
in
side the

Virtual World and it was great, but there was one
major snag.

I worked so hard to earn my keep and I ended up
spending most of my hard
-
earned wages inside the Virtual
World
;

t
herefore in effect, I gave it straight back to the
Babylon System and I
had nothing to show fo
r it other than
my

memories.
There was another virtual reality program
called Virtual Sex. The Babylon 6
legislative

body decided to
promote it as a part of the
ir

safe sex
program

and

they offered
a reduced rate to encourage people to use it.
Promiscuous sex

was strictly illegal, just as it is now

and that is why there are
so
many wankers about
.



Stephen was highly amused by his uncle’s smutty light
humoured remark.



‘Anyway Stephen; one day the V
irtual
World

promotion
staff managed to talk me into a watching a preview of the
Virtual Sex
p
rogram
; it was three dimensional pornography at
its very best

and it made me feel really horny. The staff
personnel
were able

to tal
k me into having a free trial. I took

a
sh
ower and put on a bodysuit, but this time there was a
section for me
Haggis
!

I was led into a room that had a double
bed. They sat me down on
the

bed and
they
place
d

a visor
over my eyes

and

in a blink of an eye

I was sitting on a bed
inside a
completely
d
ifferent room. I then heard a gentle
knock on the

door

and a
n incredibly attractive blond woman
dressed in sexy underwear
came into the room and she smiled
at me with her cherry red lips and
she
said.





Happy birthday Albert, how are you feeling this morning,
have you got a hangover?

That was one H
ell of a party last night and it was so much
fun.





Everything seemed

so real
, so much so

that I felt myself
getting an erection and that was when I realised that I was
stark bollock naked and that there w
ere no sheets on the bed.
The attractive blond gave me a mischievous playful smile and
she said.
