– « Mathematics! » he thought!

{ Seen from space, the earth looked like a small sun, floating, full of bubbles exploding everywhere on « her » surface. Taking a closer look at the planet, this giant bubbles were all located in or very near major megalopolis.

It all started in the fall of 2014 in Sao Paulo, during the great drought (http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/10/24/foundation-brazil-drought-idINKCN0ID1Y420141024). 21 000 000 inhabitants and only 3.5% of water reserve.

Instead of the usual morning dew, people started to notice a kind of glue coming out of the ground. Not solid, not entirely liquid, a very thick and sticky, highly polluted glue started to get out of the ground in some areas of the city.

At first, people thought it was a man-made disaster as it started in the poorest neighbourhoods, the favelas. Soon, it started to grow out of control and proportion. In a few weeks, some of the poorest areas of the city started to turn into giant jelly bubbles, some several kilometers wide and high. The glue, unknown to everybody, even scientists, was highly toxic to anyone that would swallow it. But these giant bubbles were really dangerous, above all because when they exploded, it was like a bomb that left nothing behind.

The army started to evacuate the neighbourhoods that were all considered « hazard zones ». Nobody would risk their lives going there so they became « No Man’s lands ». But soon, they became refuges for criminals, outlaws and rebels, guerrilleros fighting against the system. In just a few months, these forsaken places became the center of all the « antisystem » subcultures. Gangs, anarchists, guerrilleros… they all settled there as these bubbles were worlds with clear borders but out of any rules or controls, and right in the center of the city.

People going to these « bubbles of resistance » wore gas masks and special Dune-like outfits, in order to breath and live in the glue. Moving slowly inside the glue, people started to go to giant rave parties that were organized in what people started to call « The Womb ». Because of the deep sound, everything in those parties vibrated like jelly, the music in « the womb » was very slow, Trap-like, so that people could dance to it.

We’ll follow the adventures of a group of musicians living and performing between the 2 worlds. }

He woke up on the chair, took the joint and lit it up with a lighter promoting « trouble with drugs? call « =·$%)=·$(« .

– « Lonely people », he thought!
