Plot:
.
Two people, Ivy Silver and Roy Barber, have discovered a way to make an ancient philosophy work in todays world. That philosophy is called arcology, but ivy renamed it to ShineShimmerSparkle, in an attempt to get peoples attention. the idea is to fit an entire town into one large sphere building called an arcology. the arcology is a much more efficient and peaceful way to live. ivy and roy got their town to build the arcology, after years of intense study and experiments with ancient books guiding them. the towns people move in and are thriving in this arcology, named ArcoSilva. half of the Arcology (Sphere Town) is above ground, half is below ground. the above ground area is for living and entertainment, the half below ground is for industrial machines that keep the town running. the townspeople are afraid to go into the mechanical half of this arcology, but thats what they need to do to maintain it. so ivy and Roy have started a mission, to introduce the ShineShimmerSparkle Organization to the world. the hope is that Roy and ivy can find a town that will properly implement the SphereBuilding and maintain it by entering the dangerous mechanical half and learning about it. without maintenance, the arcology only runs at 50% efficiency. the problem is finding a town with enough morals and structure to maintain it. another problem is that ivy and Roy's home town is very greedy with the arcology and don't want the rest of the world to have the technology. ivy and Roy venture out, after putting on their transparent environment suits with utility belts. the suit protects them from temperature and danger, the utility belt has 6 compartments. the compartments contain a Fuel Cell Battery, Food, Water, a Personal Computer, Mechanical Repair Spiders, and an inflatable BubbleTransport. the bubble transport was developed alongside the arcology in ancient times. but even the ancients couldn't get it to work. a technology breakthrough aloud Roy to get the bubbleTransport to function. essentially, its a bubble much the same as when you have bubble soap. but the bubbleTransport has an electrical charge of protons that shoot out of the bubble to not only maintain the structure of the bubble, but also to push the bubble off the ground and allow very high speed transportation. the user sits inside the bubble. another part of the utility belt is the repair spiders, they can perform repairs on the belt and the human wearing the belt. the spiders perform surgery and clean the skin of the user, eliminating the need for bathing. back to the plot… ivy and Roy get past their greedy townspeople via technology they found in the frightening mechanical lower half of the arcology where no one else dares to go. the arcology has massive computing ability and can scramble a humans mind if they mess with the mechanical workings. apparently our two town founders are exempt from such destruction. each town Ivy and Roy visit has its unique quirks and mysteries to figure out. in the ending of the story, ivy gets a mechanical leg and roy has to adapt a computer chip to his brain to survive a SoftwareVirus on his environment suit. avy and Roy fight off ancient robots for awhile then find an underwater ocean colony desperately in need of repairs. turns out the ocean colony originally sent the arcology plans out as an emergency call and didn't know the blueprints to arcology were in the emergency call. ivy and roy combine their technological abilities to save the ocean colony who eventually grants them passage out of the ocean, and gives them a new Operating System to run all the arcology towns. the operating system (MOSS: Matrix Organic Software System), has high morals programmed in and deports citizens that break the rules, so ivy has to make a balance of rules and freedom for the people of the sphere towns. The Underwater Ocean colony builds a super advanced arcology that people start to obsess about. people want the new arcology so bad they forget to eat and start to riot. the Shine Shimmer Sparkle Organization is forgotten about and ivy and roy begin an outdoor journey to spread the word of god to the arcology nations of the world. Christianity then helps the people to not obsess about the OceanColony's ArcoHydro Arcology.
