After the Great Flood, a group of rogue scientists started the first anti-cloud guerilla on the International Oceanic Science Station (IOSS). They insisted on the need to disconnect all the remaining fibre optics cables and sonars still active under the sea, since they feared that the electrification of the ocean was linked to the first Big Storms. Before their station was wiped out by the last Big Storm, they were able to gather all the available information of the location of underwater fibre optic cables and sonars. Only three of them survived.

I grew up listening to these stories at the nighttime gatherings by the harbor, serving old fishcake soup and collecting soju bottles. Fishermen repeated the legendary tale of saving those who remain trapped underwater when the vessel stopped and could not make way through the water. When one of the three survivors came home after the Big Storm, it was broadcasted nationally and he was appointed as the Proud Hyundai Figure.

Now I work at one of the main 5 Wet Labs across the ocean, where we recovered 102 mini-submarines from abandoned science stations. I’m now leading the mission to disconnect what we think is the last large fibre optic cable out there. Over the last years, we’ve been successful at developing a new planetary communication network, based on biotic telepathy and non-electric echolocation. The biggest breakthrough was about 60 years ago, when we were able to understand a set of messages from dolphins and whales. Since then, we have established very friendly collaborative relations with their species, receiving help when we require assistance by rotating the #FF0000 light.

Today we’re going down to disconnect the last sonar. I’ll be assisted by two humpback whales and one narwhal. As I was getting ready to embark on my mission, we were drawn by a flashing light over the horizon that we had never seen before.
