Transcript of Welcome, useless intern
Welcome to Big Science - a corporation dedicating its resources to exploring the world as it was leading up to - and during - the primitive digital age.
We've designed and created the ultimate nature v nurture experiment and we need you to keep an eye on it over your summer break.
It's a relatively small-scale experiment, but if we move it through this phase, we'll be able to secure funding to go even further.
Meet Mindy Farmer
Duchess Mindy lives a privileged life in Temple Newsim with her husband, British aristocrat Ezequiel, two children and butler. Her simulation is set in Europe during the late 1860s.
Plebe Mindy lives a modest life with her husband and small daughter. Her simulation is set in the early 21st century.
At the inception of the experiment, we programmed Mindy with three central traits:
Although Mindy is programmed to be less than civil, the life provided to her by the simulation is generous - but is this enough to override her negative "birth" traits? That's what we want to find out.
Each Mindy has an OBSERVER: a person in her life we can program to watch her and distract her from various glitches that may occur
OBSERVERS cannot think for themselves
The Goal: Keep the experiment running until we have conclusive results on nature v. nurture - Mindy cannot find out she's inside a computer. All YOU need to watch her and alert us of any glitches or troubles in the simulation so we can rewind the simulation or adjust the observers.
