Questions for the reader

We never stop investigating. We are never satisfied that we know enough to get by. Every question we answer leads on to another question. This has become the greatest survival trick of our species.
Desmond Morris
"Imagine a world where material lack can easily be fixed, where it is possible for anybody to get a standard of living beyond our wildest dreams. Where people can avoid practically all diseases, including ageing, that plague us today. Where information flows freely and personal freedom is the norm. Where the current huamn condition will be regarded as a dreary past. This is what is becoming possible."

"There has to be a catch somewhere."

"Yeah. A big catch..."

It is impossible to describe all of the world of 2015; it is just as complex as today's world (if not more). The best thing we can do is to provide a framework to start with, but in the end it is up to the Coordinator and players to imagine and describe the world. These questions are intended to activate the players or readers of InfoWar to think further, to develop the world on their own and quite possibly learn more about the real world.
