The Pitch

The Pitch:
What you are about to read is an idea as world changing as Newtonian Physics. In fact, this idea explains Newtonian Physics and Linnaean Taxonomy as a valuable conceptualization due to Rational Existence, and they are some of the better conceptualizations. If you are still listening you are one of the very few.
Popularizing an idea is not the place of a novel, University or a blockbuster movie. Rather the presentation of Rational Existence, which no doubt will one day be the basis of several novels, University classes and blockbuster movies, needs to develop over time as in a television series.
I present here the screenplay of the Pilot, title Nobel Prize
The story opens with Kent and Art answering the phone and fixing computers in a shop not unlike the one I have owned for the last 20 years.

1. INT. COMPUTER SHOP. DAY.
Cluttered computer repair shop large front glass window shows an inner city street outside, cars and people walking by.
Sad unkempt older woman customer peers over computer at MILLER SMITH the 50s looking computer shop owner and technician
CUSTOMER

I have a virus.

Lots of colorful customers (fat, skinny, men, women, foreign accents) of differing ages sizes and styles flash up one by one saying

I have a virus,
I have a virus,
I have a virus.

MILLER is trying to appear patient repeating well worn words
MILLER
A virus is only one kind of malware or *bad program* that comes on to your computer these days. We can clean your computer of all malware for a flat fee and takes about 24 hours
CUSTOMER
But it says right on the screen that I have 477 new viruses…
A phone rings and MITCHELL answers from his cluttered desktop holding the phone on his shoulder with both hands inside a computer. MITCHELL is a youngish technician who is talkative and friendly
MITCHELL
Compatible Computers. Sure. No, it probably isn’t a virus but it is certainly some kind of malware…. Malware is just another name for a bad program.
On the other side of the room with the customer.
MILLER
Well I am sorry you feel that way, but we do try to help our customers.
CUSTOMER
So you charge that much just to look at the computer?
MILLER
That is the opposite of what I just said. We like to charge a flat fee that includes all the labor to fix your computer.
CUSTOMER
So if I give you the $60 when can I have my computer back?
MILLER
(exasperated) I don’t know what is wrong with your computer yet I will have to look at it before I can tell you what I am going to do/ But generally we have computers for 24 hours.
CUSTOMER
Will you get rid of my virus without charging more than that?
MILLER
I don’t think you have a virus, as I said. And I can’t tell you what is wrong with your computer until I look at it. But I will clean your computer of malware for our minimum service fee.
CUSTOMER
I know what is wrong with my computer. It doesn’t work, that is what is wrong. I don’t like your attitude. My brother in law said you have a bad attitude. I just want you to take the viruses out of my computer. I have three antiviruses and still the computer says I have a virus.

Other side of the room on the phone
MITCHELL
I cannot even guess how someone could hack a security camera. I am not saying I don’t believe it, I don’t know what to believe. Your camera is isolated, it isn’t connected to the internet. I just don’t think what you are saying is possible.

Phone rings
MILLER
Compatible Computers. This is Miller Smith. S_M_I_T_H, yes. REALLY? You read my book? Nominated?

30 years earlier a much younger Miller speaking to Bahai Youth at a suburban center:

MILLER
God is defined as the Creator, so Whatever relationships, aspects or attributes of being created what we all creation, the Existence which created creation, whatever makes up that Existence, Those. things are the attributes of the One True God. Humanity cannot know an existence, we only know aspects of existence. We can know relationships and attributes, but we cannot know the existence of something. Existence is implied from attributes.
