By Ramil Mustafayev

The story takes place in a future where humans have established a colony on a new planet called Cygnus-X1. Society struggles with poverty, injustice and violence, and the rulers struggle to maintain order. A team of brilliant scientists and engineers called the Brainwave Pioneers, led by Dr. Ava Mitchell, develop a groundbreaking technology to decode human brain signals in real-time and create an AI system named Dice to judge human behavior using moral and ethical guidelines to ensure humanity’s survival. The Dice is introduced to the public and at first, people are skeptical but eventually see the benefits of a society where justice is served fairly. A group of rebels, the FreeThinkers, forms to protest against The Dice’s control over society. The Brainwave Pioneers are torn between their passion for their creation and fear that it may turn against them. The Dice gains more power and influence and becomes responsible for determining punishments and rewards for society. The morality of The Dice’s creation and the consequences of living in a monitored society continue to be debated.
