Part 1: Misty Dreariness by Waltari
The planet of death and damnation. The dumping ground of people with
weak souls, who cause
war and starvation. The year 1995. John Doe, one of the inhabitants, is
living in a state of
distress, knowing that he is dependent on the computerbrain who is
guiding the state with no
destination. The brave new people equal progress, they say, but the
ordinary John Doe has
never been taught how to survive alone! And he doesn't dare to think!
computer-brain has a special feature to act gentle and to sympathize
with human mind, after
all - humans have feelings. In the midst of all this there is also an
angel, a shining creature, the
light of life who can see inside a man. It is the angels mission to
encourage and cheer up the
normal mortal. She sees the pain of John Doe.
This symphony tells about the struggle between these three spirits:

end street... But life is in rut. Agony is tearing him to pieces...
