Story

What if this is all a game that the gods created for their entertainment? And what if they are now bored with it/us, and want to change the channel? This is the idea that came to me after one too many mojitos at The Hotel Del Coronado, on Coronado Island off San Diego. It is a magical place. The Wizard of Oz was written there. "Some Like it Hot" was filmed there. It is a monument to mankind's insatiable appetite for entertainment and escapism, ever more fungible as the years pass. An apt setting for this thought to take wings.

After World War 2 we had become omnipotent; after all, we now had the capacity to destroy the planet. We started behaving like gods, and our value systems were forever changed because of that.
