Let me propose a situation first, before I ask my question:
You have infinite money, recourses, land, and technology. You also infinite have man-power (as in, people who are willing to obey you. Iím not talking about your physical muscles.)
To continue the same thought, you donít have to go to work unless you want to- you have no responsibilities. You wonít be held accountable if you do anything dangerous or morally wrong- In other words, you will not be taken out of power no matter how unsavory your actions are.
Now, here is my question:
What would you do for fun? (Think in terms of large scale projects.)
As for me, this is what I would do:
I would build a series of interconnected air-conditioned bio-domes out in the middle of nowhere (about 10 square miles of interconnected bio-domes). Some of the domes, I would make into grasslands; others forests, jungles, deserts, swamps, bolder covered wastelands, etc.
I would hire a team of biologists to be working non-stop to create a race of anthropomorphic bipedal rabbit men who would populate the domes (as well as other animals.) Lastly, I would install millions of hidden cameras on the inside of the domes, so that I could watch their society, culture, language, and spiritual belief systems develop.
Mostly, I want to see a society develop from scratch.
In the very beginning, I would place about 30 adolescent rabbits with very limited knowledge of human culture, inside. Only the first generation would be given prepared food. They would also be exposed to instructional videos demonstrating how to do the most agriculture possible (sowing seeds, watering), how to hunt wild animals (setting traps, tracking paw-prints), how to
They would learn how to store food, make weapons, build huts, and develop legal systems all on their own. Aside from the first generation, I (as well as all humans) would not interfere with them.
- I would be most interested in their culture, although I would get excited if they managed to:
- Make paper.
- Draw maps.
- Build 2 story buildings.
- Create theater (puppet shows, acting)
- Weave clothing (well, they wouldnít need it)
- Try to break out and explore the outside world. (Oh, that would be too cool!)
I think your responses echo your stronger personality preferences.
