The year is 2020. I am sitting down to a meal of bok choy, cabbage, eggplant and rice. I am in rural China, with my organization of spiritual warrior monks. The water sources in the areas area all badly polluted, so we have had to purchase an advanced reverse osmosis system to clean our water. The system is the only one of its kind for miles, so many nearby villages send people to us to gather water. We are doing the best we can to provide for everyone while also charging a modest fee for the service and building alliances with local leaders.
I receive the call on my satellite phone from Alchemy and agree that Japan is important and that the food crisis there needs immediate resolution. I agree to head south to Hong Kong where one of our hovercraft is waiting. I phone ahead to my contacts in Tokyo to look for my coming in 3 days. We head off to sleep in the insulated eco yurts that have become popular throughout the countryside.
