Immerse yourself in an era. Relive past lives. Write History.


 

What is 'Simulations' ?

 

SIMULATIONS is a NFT collection of past life moments stored on the blockchain.

These archives are used by the Megalopolis A.I. to regenerate entire eras of human history.

In Simulation, each person is a potential entry point to a new life.

  

Synopsis 


Megalopolis is a city without history.

We only have snippets of information, but what we do know for sure is that we don't know anything about the initial event that spawned it.

Some speak of a pure and simple accident, an insignificant clumsiness causing a chain reaction that would have led to a general catastrophe.

Others believe that it is a slow natural collapse linked to the death instinct of each civilization.

Be that as it may, Paris, as we knew it at the start of the 21st century, has totally disappeared. Only ruined palaces and streets remain.

Then, as in the aftermath of the world wars, life, initially in its infancy, resumed and a new city developed outside the walls of the old capital.

We have no idea where the Builders came from, but after a few centuries a city the likes of which the world had never seen now obscured the horizon.

Megalopolis, the mother of all cities was born.

Inexorably, men in their desire for comfort, had exceeded their limits. Quietly and complacently she was sinking into decadence, and progress had come to mean progress for the Machine.

Already in its infancy at the end of the 20th century, the Artificial Imagination has become omniscient through the compulsion of all the data and traces left by humanity.


Panopticorp™, OmniEye™, Mindscape™, RenderLands™… so many different names to define the main activity of the big conglomerates of Megalopolis: the Simulation.

Coupled with an advanced imaging system and tremendous computing power, the AI ​​perfectly recreates what could be called the sensations of reality: the details of a street, the attitude of a crowd or the imperfection of a face.

First playful to satisfy the desires and perversity of men, simulation firms changed in dimension when historical simulations were offered.

Thus, by renting an identity for a few hours or a few days, it was possible to relive fully reconstructed eras.
The Paris Commune, the French Revolution or the Liberation, so many events that the inhabitants of Megalopolis hastened to relive by embodying anonymous people or leading characters.

For city dwellers in a city without history, it was the way for them to give meaning to their lives.
Also, some got lost in the Simulation never to return.

In a sense, the Paris of yesteryear was revived through them.

As if the city, in a Promethean desire, had come back to life through its inhabitants.
