  • Justice Is Mind: Evidence

    Justice Is Mind: Evidence (2011)
    Film (short) by Mark Lund (Crime, Drama and History) Writer, Producer, Director It is the year 2026 and MRI technology has advanced to a point where imaging of long term memories can be produced in near video quality. When Henri Miller has the new FVMRI scan during a routine medical procedure and it reveals his murdering of two contractors on his property, the legal machinery put in place by him when he signed a medical release sets the stage for the trial of the century as Henri may have to defend himself against the states primary evidence - the memory of a crime he doesn't remember committing. In the chambers of Judge Wagner, Henri's defense counsel pleads passionately to dismiss this landmark memory evidence on the basis of a flawed medical procedure; while the District Attorney extols that Henri signed away his rights to privacy when he released the parties during the initial medical procedure. Citing the continued rights of patient choice, Wagner's summation states that this case may prove that sometimes our memories may no longer be our own. Written by Mark Lund

This discovery was classified and false images from the Moon were transmitted during all the Apollo missions. When the Earth mission of this new civilization was discovered, political forces demanded that President Nixon end manned missions to the Moon in 1972. First World commences in the year 2018 when the Chinese government announces it is making its first manned mission to the Moon within 24 hours. What does this civilization represent?
