| INT:- MEYAKU ONSEN - EVENING - PRIVATIVE ROOM/PUBLIC SPRING
The Meyaku onsen looks like a traditional Japanese hot spring bath house. The MEYAKUS are a large extended family spanning five generations, are mainly in the other part of the large building. In one of the private rooms that can be open up to the public natural pool are; ANN 33, HARU MEYAKU age 55 The head of the clan, and SANA MEYAKU His time travelling grate granddaughter.
Both Pavil and Francoeur have asked us to try to reduce the amount of toxic radioactive heavy metals left over from military style reactors.
They are both accept the risk of removing that many people from the time line.
Do we accept the risk.
Pavil as only just been restored.
They will be Chinese and Americans the risk here in Japan will be minimal for at least four generation.
Pavil was still there he just stopped being a traveller.
But what about the technological changes you want to cause.
They will hit us immediately.
Nearly all of the worlds floating cities use this technology.
There are lots of alternative technological solutions.
linear accelerator magnetic bottle laser fusion.
and several others.
Its pyroelectric fusion we will use to make the bomb.
But lots of people know this technology.
Lots of people know this technology because they learned it in the army. Then when the military discarded them they took that knowledge with them.
If the military use a different technique then lots of people will know the new cleaner way.

their going to do it what ever you say.
I know because it was my first action, age twenty nine.
(Ann 67 makes the wall to the public spring pool disappear. She goes out, takes of her dress, and get in the water.)
Not so. Venerable ancestor I trust you to decide in the best interest of all of your descendants, not just your immediate family.
This will be sixty sevens last mission.
The mission is a complete success with no loss of life, except sixty seven is never seen by us again, after Amita twenty sevens party.
Knowing that she still thinks it wroth while.
(Sana puts on an ancients bronze torque)
Your not still using that old thing?
I am going to be making two hops onto two submarines in two different oceans nearly a decade apart, without any real knowledge of where or when, I will take all the help I can get.
( Sana disappears.)

(She hands Ann 33 a bit of paper)
There. Their are three hundred and eighteen men, sixteen women, and a pig to be dragged from A to B. before you can scuttle the subs and blow them up with small hydrogen bombs.
Two subs will be enough?
To totally discredit this technology.
(shouting from out side)
(They go out side and look up at New Tokyo. A kilometre high, two kilometre wide dome. Sat on top of a stubby looking one kilometre tall cylinder.)
Its hard to believe a city that big could fly.
Float in the sky.
Its obvious, once you understand the significance of cube square law.
A summer thunder shower might drop a millimetre of rain over a square kilometre. Doing the maths, that's one million square metres, times point zero zero one metres of rain, that equals one thousand cubic metres of water. Each cubic metre of water weighs a ton.
A fare weather cumulus of a quarter the size will hold less than one hundred tons.
The grater the volume a thing has the easer it is to make it float.
He doesn't get it.
Grate grandfather, it is like this. If you make a balloon twice as big, it will weigh four times as much, and hold eight times the volume. If you make it one hundred times larger it will weigh ten thousand times as much. But it will hold a million times the volume.
Most of the weight of new Tokyo there, is the air inside it.
Despite all of the people and all their property, air makes up most of its weight.
If that air is even slightly lighter than the cold air outside, then because there is just so much of it, the city will float.
I see the city floating.
Honourable grandfather I must leave I have my duties to attend to.
TT FADE OUT
I must be on my way as well. We are going to have a party in nineteen ten, to welcome Amita twenty seven to our group.
Sixty seven remember you have to start the recruiting of Amita twenty seven before we can have this party.
(Ann 33 disappears)

They really don't know about...
No and you won't tell them!

See lover, I told you I would rewrite history so that you and I could live out the rest of our lives together in luxury.
