What happens when physical distancing becomes the norm for society? When it is possible to download your consciousness into an android, when artificial intelligence gets bored, when babies are conceived and born in smart incubators, when the USA no longer exists? Welcome to 2220. Amid the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, the data entrepreneur Victor Mackay identifies physical proximity as the main cause of sickness in society. To overcome this sickness, he establishes a political party. The aim? A healthy society. In 2220, Victor’s consciousness is downloaded into the world he sought to create. As an android living in Cascadia, Victor finds the world very different to his aspirations. And not always in a good sense. In a world of theys, Victor is not entirely themself. And no-one is untouched by changing habits.
