Neom, the Line
In the year 2070, the world was a vastly different place. Climate change had ravaged the planet, causing widespread famine and social unrest. In response, the world’s wealthiest and most powerful people banded together to fund a massive architectural project in the Arabian desert. This project was called Neom, and it was intended to be a utopia, a city of the future that would be free from the problems that plagued the rest of the world.
At the helm of this project was a mysterious figure known only as the financial owner. The financial owner was a reclusive billionaire who had made their fortune in the tech industry and was rumored to be one of the wealthiest people in the world. Their goal for Neom was simple : to create a city that would attract the world’s best and brightest, a city where the most brilliant minds could come together to solve the world’s biggest problems.
The centerpiece of Neom was a massive structure known as The Line. This was a city that stretched for hundreds of miles along a straight line, running through the heart of the Arabian desert. The Line was designed to be the epitome of efficiency, a place where every aspect of life was optimized for maximum productivity. The buildings were constructed from the latest materials, using cutting-edge technology to minimize energy use and waste. The streets were wide and straight, and the entire city was surrounded by vast expanses of green space, which would be used to grow food and provide a habitat for wildlife.
At first, The Line seemed like a dream come true. People flocked to Neom from all over the world, eager to be a part of this new utopia. The city was filled with brilliant minds, working together to solve the world’s most pressing problems. The financial owner was hailed as a visionary, a leader who was using their wealth and influence to create a better world.
However, as time passed, cracks began to appear in the façade of The Line. It soon became clear that the financial owner had a hidden agenda. The people who had been attracted to Neom, with their innovative ideas and cutting-edge technology, were being used as nothing more than a source of cheap labor. The financial owner was using their power and influence to control the city, manipulating the people who lived there for their own ends.
In response, a resistance movement began to form. A group of rebels, made up of the people who had come to Neom in search of a better life, rose up against the financial owner and their regime. They began to uncover the truth about what was really happening in The Line, and they were determined to put a stop to it.
The rebellion was a hard-fought battle, but in the end, the people of Neom were successful. They overthrew the financial owner and their regime, and they established a new society, one that was truly dedicated to making the world a better place. The Line was transformed into a city of freedom and equality, a place where everyone had the opportunity to pursue their dreams and reach their full potential.
In the years that followed, Neom became a shining example of what was possible when people worked together for a common goal. The city continued to attract the best and brightest from all over the world, and it remained at the forefront of technological and scientific innovation. And, as the world around it struggled to cope with the effects of climate change, Neom remained a beacon of hope, a shining example of what could be achieved when people came together to create a better future.
The legacy of The Line and the financial owner was a complex one. They had set out to create a utopia, but in the process, they had created a dystopia.
But in the end…
