Isn't it wonderful, Drogue? Eden is mine and I do not have to share it with the masses.

I have triumphed over the many, no longer am I beholden to those that want to take my wealth from me. And I no longer require their services, thanks to technology.

I have given up my wealth for freedom, separating myself from the rest of humanity; Eden will provide all that I need.

Drogue, are you listening?

 

Drogue is listening, do you have a request? 

 

Hum, let me see?

Drogue, fetch me a lemonade.

 

I am sorry; in your present state you cannot consume lemonade. You are pure energy and have no physical form.

 

But I was told that I was going to live forever in a virtual paradise, void of all responsibilities and problems.

I was told that living in EDEN would provide that.

 

You read and signed the contracts and you were provided all that the contracts promised. You were converted to pure energy and now you live in an Electrically Diversified Energy Nebula.

What more could you ask for?

 

A Lemonade?
