Advent Conspiracy: It’s that time again.

Somni 451 is a major character in David Mitchell’s novel, Cloud Altas, now a major motion picture. Somni is a fabricant, genomed to be a servant. She lives a futuristic world in which purebloods, or “real” people, are required to spend a certain amount of their income to consume and keep the economy flowing. Given our consumer driven economy this isn’t a far fetched reality. So, I post, once again, this little reminder from Advent Conspiracythat Christmas is so much more than spending money on gifts. Whether you are religious or not I think it’s worth re-imagining the possibilities of the holiday season.
