The Family Surveillance Unit

We kept a box filled with the family history – all old letters and photographs and things like that.  And this box kept our heritage up to date, it spun the words and pictures into films that were soundtracked by hit songs relevant to the time period, then later on it digitally condensed them into a string of code that was pure memory.  I never worked out what happened to the original documents, I thought it might have been nice to keep them too.  But then they do say that in the future it will be possible to create bright, modern versions of everyone and everything that ever was, and that we will all exist in the one moment and enjoy the best years of our lives together.
