World 142

In World 142, 100 years from 2021, we now have a world where we only wear gothic- cyberpunk wear. It is clothing that is mostly black but a lot of techs in the clothing. The Inventor of this clothing, Mr. James Nasher, found a new material that is cheap to buy and cheap to find. It can be found in every tree, deep in the roots. It is called transmentum. It replaced every material used in clothing. The reason is because it can become any color; any texture and it is a type of metal. Also, people use this material more than any other fashion material because of how easy it can be found, how cheap it is, and that everyone that finds some gets a good amount of payment.

What inspired this material was that Mr. Nasher wanted to improve the working environment for people but wanted to find a material that is very fashionable, cheap to purchase, gives people a good amount of pay, and improves the worker working conditions (no matter where they are). So this material has helped people in so many ways from equal pay all the way to treating the workers well because of how cheap and easy to find it is. Mr. Nasher has made sure everyone follows his safety, and worker conditions. Which state, that everyone must be given equal pay and must be treated right. Infringement of these policies can equal up to 24 years of jail time.

What if …

people were better to each other and to the world?

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
