Trapped in Tranquility
by Brody Coy
George has finally saved up enough money for an emotion adjustment from Brainexx, a company on the forefront of mental health technology, and he couldn’t be more excited. He has always struggled with mental health, but with a Brainexx chip installation, his depression, fear, anger, and anxiety can all be mitigated. We each have a base level for every emotion, and now we have the power to adjust and set that level exactly where we want it.
George and the rest of the world dive headfirst into this mind-altering technology in a thought-provoking story that explores concepts involving the depths of human emotion, responsibility, sociopolitical issues, power, and the search for meaning. How much are we willing to surrender, to compromise, in order to eliminate all of our suffering?
