This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in.

In 1899 the journalist John Smith made a rare interview with Nikola Tesla which has never been published until now. Below a few highlights:
Journalist: In the hostility to the theory of relativity you go so far, that you hold lectures against its Creator [Albert Einstein] at your birthday parties..
Tesla: Remember, it is not curved space, but the human mind which cannot comprehend infinity and eternity! If relativity has been clearly understood by its Creator, he would gain immortality, even yet physically, if he is pleased.

Princesses Sahar and Jawaher claim they have little communication outside of their gates - "no-one is allowed in or out." They say the intern

Thanks everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes! I wish I could say I had a good one but I spent my birthday and the next day in bed with a terrible headache! Oh well I haven't had such a bad one for a long time so I'm hoping that's my lot for a while!
