In the near future, two friends meet in a forest. Michel, just back from two years of deep mindfulness in an ashram, did not follow the news. Taylor hurries to tell him about his adventures with the 'Context and Modality Platform', a kind of political party that - as an out-of-control joke and against all odds - has landed at the gates of power. Taylor tells his story using a nifty futuristic device that can project your memories in front of you as a hologram.
Michel has so many questions. Are Taylor and his friends crushed by the media steamroller and the evil intentions of their opponents? Did they manage to stay true to their ideals? Did they really discover mysterious and super-powerful resources on a walk in the woods? And did they start a new, revolutionary school of magic?
