  • *(FunFACT:  Did you know…

that “[The] earliest life on Earth might have been just as purple as it is green today, a scientist claims.   Ancient microbes might have used a molecule other than chlorophyll to harness the Sun’s rays, one that gave the organisms violet hue…”)

“Early Earth Was Purple, Study Suggests”*                                                                                                                                  by Ker Than (April 10, 2007)                                                                                                c/o: “livescence” [blog]

… that help one another, We  The  People…”                                                                 love each other… better.

  • COLLECTIVE WISDOM:

“Under the right circumstances…

groups can actually be incredibly smart.  And that they’re often smarter even than the smartest person within them.  For a group   to be smart,  you really need two things.  

You need diversity of opinion,  and attitude and information…  [and] you need people to be relatively independent of   each other.

🙂 “THE TIME MACHINE”…………………………………………………………………….

Jean- Michel Jarre;  [Writer/Producer:   Jean Michel Jarre] [Producer(s):   Music Affair Entertainment Ltd., Sony Music Entertainment, Germany]  [Album:  “Electronica” (Columbia  2015)]

SCENE 1: (flash forward [narrative])

 

The Submersion

(suggested… tune; and/or “tone” 🙂

Character:  TRICIA VAN BRUIN; “TRISH”

“Demetrius had never performed a submersion.  A submersive is what they called it in TECH.  And, Tricia needed a submersive.  Now.  Flattening Trish gently into the pool, cradling the back of her head in one hand and frantically and manually opening the spigots to full pour… he racked his brain trying to remember what to do next.   He remembered.

“SALT!”  Saline solution — the Ocean.  He was remembering.  That lesson in Medic’s was thorough and typically performed on children.  Children in shock.  Children in trauma.

He checked Tricia’s eyes.  Still dilated.

“Hold on, Trish…”, he murmured as he fumbled with the bath sQare.  “We’re getting there.”, and he hit the sQare.

SEA SALT.  The apple green neon monitor emerged like tiny snakes undulating and slowly twisting and separating in holo form, settling into neat rows of circular prompts.  Like tiny lily pads lined up in template form, each possessing a label, a “key”, to the next move.

Demetrius selected,  MODERATE… then, PURE.  The spigots now gushing, pouring out and fully open, he tapped, TEMP.

“98.6 F”.  All of this at lightening speed.  It was done.  And, he started to float Tricia gently on her back across the surface taking special care to keep her head, her face, well above sea level.  She was beautiful.  And, immediately serene.

He kissed her lightly, and continued to monitor her pulse.  Her eyes.  She was stabilizing.  He laughed.”

Tricia Van Bruin; nickname:  “Trish”………………………………………………….

The Atrium

(suggested…  tune; and/or  “tone”:)

Character(s):  TRICIA VAN BRUIN;  “TRISH”,  DEMETRIUS DEL SOL;  “DEX”

“Demetrius Del Sol set aside his flute, liquid crystal of liquor, to the far side of the bar, next himself, and between two regular patrons.  Hit his holo prompt, tapping all the way, and leaned way in… way in into the Atrium central platform.  The dance annex. And then,  along the periphery… inside the periphery… and soon hovered above the seating pods.

There she was.

He set the disc to magnify… then to imaging.  To private.  To investigate.  He had seen her before — glimpses of her.  But, never like this…”

Treatment:   

“From a high-level business perspective, field experiments have shown that teams closer to a 50-50 gender split [perspective] perform better than predominantly male teams,” she says, “It’s worth noting that Apple has demonstrated awareness and understanding of the gender gap, and the need to close it…  tech companies will have to hire women whether they like it or not, because there are simply not enough engineers out there — male or female.   The EU commission estimates, for example, that Europe will have a shortage of one million programmers as soon as 2020, and US calculations come to the same conclusion from their side of the Atlantic.

 In this scenario, leaving half the population dramatically underrepresented is bad strategy.”

— Brit Griffith,  co-founder of She’s Coding (US project on a mission to close gender gap in computer science)
