Last July, I shared a three-part post with cool ideas for the taking. My mind is always generating new batches of fun ideas, so I bring you a series of posts called the “Imagination Series”.
(Same rules as last time: Read my ideas, enjoy them and let me know if you want to partner to develop any of these story lines into something cool!)
Idea #1: A Conspiracy Novel
I watched an incredible TED Talk on prenatal learning and a fetus’ capacity for absorbing the world around her in utero. This novel would be a futuristic conspiracy where the government realizes that it can take advantage of this key nine-month period to educate the fetuses and give their citizens a head start.
The first generation of program administrators are good-intentioned, creating government-paid centers where pregnant women can retreat to and relax with their fetuses at no cost to them. Within fifty years, however, a new generation of administrators recognize the potential and capacity of these centers for indoctrinating the next generation and require all pregnant women to spend the full nine months of their pregnancy at a government training center or risk the unspoken punishments of the republic.
