Episode 1 Between Virtual and Physical/
Sophia: Work mode activated. Manager No.3709, consciousness shifts to the physical body from 10:00 am, XANA common time. Please wait in a safe place. 5 minutes left to move. I checked the room lock and sat down on a chair. Sophia continues in a well-defined voice. Sophia: We have 3 minutes left. It's a daily thing, but this time before the consciousness shift, I can't handle it. I exercises to kill time every day by drawing a picture in my head from the beginning of this world to the present. Yesterday ended in 20XX, so today is the continuation of that. An era when there was no land in the world where humans could move around due to the explosion of population. Researchers have come up with the idea of placing the physical body in a small box and placing it in the real world, and sending only the consciousness to the virtual space. Fortunately, advances in technology made it easy to implement. For people who could not have a personal space, the infinite breadth of the virtual space was said to be a treasure above all else. The foundations of life are being transferred to virtual space one after another, the digitization of assets, the shift of companies to virtual space, the establishment of methods for identifying individuals in a world where it is easy to change one's appearance... everything has been transferred to to virtual space, and the real world has become a warehouse of physical bodies. People have given a name to the new world.『XANA』The world I live in now. Sophia: The transfer of consciousness to the physical body has been completed. Start a health diagnosis. Please remain lying down and do not move. A slight vibration is transmitted to the body along with a mechanical sound. I've gotten used to it by now, but at first it felt scary and unavoidable.
