“Whatever is ours today
the world is our tomorrow”.
Life went on. But that was already a different world. Another round of negotiations with the Americans has ended. They never guessed about our operation with submarines. At the same time, the awareness of the parity of the availability of any materials and devices forced both sides to join efforts to create an absolute inaccessibility of tele- and chrono-teleportation technologies for third forces. Under the UN Security Council, a kind of control body was created, endowed with the authority to control and destroy any complexes that could become elements of a tele- or chrono-teleportation system. Although a number of countries strongly objected to this provision, de facto, and then de jure, they had to accept these conditions.
All strategic and tactical nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and their means of delivery were teleported to the Sun, which did not even notice such a gift from the Earth. At first, it was proposed to send all this stuff to the center of our galaxy, followed by throwing it into its black hole through the event horizon, but they decided not to strain the available energy resources that were required to solve new problems.
Such control and punitive functions, which the Security Council received, and new opportunities for their unconditional practical implementation, led to the fact that the arms race, which continued throughout the history of mankind, reached a different level, where only two players remained. But now these players have integrated their defense resources into each other so that any form of armed conflict between them has become impossible.
From now on, the decisive arguments of the world strategy have become the resources of controlled quantum nonlocality and variable topology of space. They became common for these two countries, practically opening wide the doors for their gradual mutual political and economic integration. The rest, willy-nilly, also had to reshape their budgets, in which funds previously allocated for defense have now significantly replenished resources for health, education, ecology and infrastructure development. Russia and the United States have also drastically cut their military budgets, which made it possible to quickly resolve many problems. Leo Tolstoy lamented in his article "On Science" (Answer to the Peasant) in 1909 that "the successes of ... sciences" intensify "the horrors and villainy of wars." Now, finally, wars were over, and science for the first time began to work only for mutual creation.
In order to preserve the existing parity in the possibilities of using technologies of controlled quantum nonlocality, our laboratory was combined with a similar structure in the United States into a single international system complex. Of course, at the same time we had to sacrifice the name “VANYA”, which has become so familiar to all of us. Now the complex was simply called "Global quantum". Curiously, but the obvious consonance of the name of my laboratory and the new complex seemed strange to me. With my American colleague Dr. Robert Ford, I had equal rights in everything related to the activities of the united structure. An agreement was reached, according to which, in the absence of consensus on any issue, the decision was postponed. The influence of a third party was thus excluded.
The Global Quantum complex has become a specialized subdivision of the joint Security Council of the two countries. That was when the developments of our lawyer Evgeny Moiseevich Liberovich became in full demand. It was he who was appointed the head of the group of developers of a set of international laws regulating all kinds of legal and law enforcement practices. The presence of almost finished samples of these documents at first plunged our partners into a stupor. They have been trying for a long time to find out with which countries we previously developed these materials, so exhaustively they took into account the national specifics of the legislation of the United States and its allies. The fact that Liberovich was a polyglot seriously helped him in the position in which he found himself.
For the United States, the freed-up funds have sharply reduced the amount of public debt, helped to revive the economies of depressed regions and provided literally an explosive increase in the welfare of those who were previously classified as the middle class. Now it has ceased to be average, since it was supplemented only by a rapidly growing layer of the industrial financial elite. It became impossible to hide from justice, just as it became impossible to hide the kidnapped or hide the victim of crime. The detection rate of crimes against the person and any form of property has become almost one hundred percent. Thousands of previously committed crimes were also disclosed, and Themis was finally able to convince the society that any offense is now inevitably punishable. For a sharp increase in the level of security of citizens, the latter were forced to pay with a part of their freedom, since what they previously could somehow hide from the eyes of the people, now became available for any form of control. In favor of Israel, funds accumulated in them, previously requisitioned by the Nazi regime from the Jews, were extracted from various banks. Israel began to return these funds to the descendants of their former owners. The seizure and return of the gold and currency valuables stolen from them for various reasons from previously inaccessible depositories, mainly from banks in Switzerland, began.
The civilization quickly changed its crafty appearance and clothes stained with wars and other disasters. Its unpredictability and uncertainty, like the disappearing smile of the Cheshire cat, gradually took on a new stable and definite image of the irresistible light power of what Homo sapiens L. finally became in its new clothes, refined and renewed. Not redesigned, but updated. Russia was also able to solve some of the problems that had not been solved for centuries before. Participants of all illegal armed groups were eliminated, but in reality, sent beyond the horizon of events. At first, this provoked a sharp protest from human rights organizations, including international ones. However, society as a whole supported such a policy of the authorities, and the wave of protests quickly subsided. The first reaction of officials to the appearance of significant released funds in the budget was an attempt to direct these funds to habitual "sawcut". However, the possibility of determining the final link in the chain and access of control bodies to it gradually began to nullify this criminal direction as well.
Overall crime began to decline at an unprecedented rate. Criminal excesses became sporadic, and were mainly caused by serious mental disorders of the criminals. Since the need for an extensive form of protection has disappeared, more than a million strong healthy workers have joined the real sphere of the economy. Russia has turned into a huge construction site, the priority direction in which at the first stage were roads and children's institutions developing the intellect and body. The idea of M. V. Lomonosov and P. A. Stolypin found a new life. This presupposed the active development of the gigantic expanses of Siberia, the natural resources of which finally received their responsible master. Such a policy presupposed precisely development, not reckless exploitation. All this foreshadowed the real beginning of sustainable development, when it turned from a populist slogan into productive practical activity. Entire institutional systems, primarily education, health care and law, were radically altered. The country was changing before our eyes.
The use of chronoteleportation made it possible to put an end to the solution of many previously controversial issues. So, Wegener's hypothesis about continental drift was confirmed, and Darwin's hypothesis about the origin of man (the simial theory) was rejected, etc. For the first time, history received the tools that allowed it to become an exact science, and Cleo was no longer such an unpredictable and accessible lady as before. The reasons for the deaths of many previously extinct civilizations, expeditions, aircraft, ships, including submarines and famous personalities were revealed. This is how the mystery of the death of Alexander the Great in Babylon, Queen Cleopatra in Alexandria, Rudolf Diesel on the Dresden steamer on the way to London, Nikola Tesla at the New Yorker Hotel, Napoleon Bonaparte on St. Helena Island and other famous historical figures.
Against this background, I was suddenly drawn to the pier from which, after graduation, I sailed into my adventurous life. Many times, I have heard that the North does not let go of those who have ever lived in these places. At the same time, the North is a kind of collective image of a distant kind of harsh world. For Russia, the North is habitually represented by everything that lies north of the latitude of Sakhalin. For me, this is the northern region of Kamchatka, where after graduation I worked as a surgeon, psychiatrist, neuropathologist and otolaryngologist, and those who at one time or another were required by the patient.
Having decided to visit the launch pad of his medical practice, I considered it best to consult with Kuzin. By this time, he was a member of numerous foreign academies, remaining the director of the institute. He also acquired a new extremely responsible position; he became co-head of the Russian-American Security Council. However, his main study remained the one from which many of our developments started.
Since I never parted with the relativistic translator, I called Kuzin using it.
– Alexey Dmitrievich, hello. There is a need to consult. Will you accept me?
– How soon can you come?
– I'm in the center now. I'll take the subway. Therefore, half an hour plus ten minutes on foot.
– It is suitable. I will be free by this time. I'm waiting.
I did not meet the promised forty minutes. It took a little more time. I entered the reception room, as I understood, the members of the American delegation, who were escorted by Kuzin, came out of the office to meet me. They already knew me well. We greeted each other and immediately said goodbye. I go into the office. On the table is a large photograph of the family of the President of the United States with a welcome note and signatures of all its members.
– You see? We build bridges, make interchanges, seal potholes and apply markings. So two-way multi-lane traffic will now also be without traffic lights. I cannot shake off the impression of some kind of lightness, perhaps in a relationship. Previously, this was not the case, although sometimes they warmly accepted and hugged tightly. Well, and they always received really hard.
– The strength then depended more on the strength of the accepted stimulants of relations, but now the environment is different.
– Well, now, your diagnosis is ready from the fly.
– Incidentally, I asked for a meeting specifically about the diagnosis.
– Do you need a strength? It is instant.
– No, this is different. This diagnosis is called nostalgia.
– So you are at home, returned from the states just a week ago. What nostalgia?
– I want, Alexey Dmitrievich, to take a ride through the places of combat youth. After all, I started my career in Kamchatka. If you don't mind, my guys will throw me there for a week.
– You know my attitude towards you. If there is a desire, come on fl..., quantize. True, there is one wish.
– What, take the guards with you again?
– Not. This is more serious. Your American leadership partner, if I'm not mistaken, Dr. Ford?
– You are not mistaken.
– So invite him along. I will not let you go alone. You yourself understand why. We are not yet such a single entity to exclude various surprises. I hope you understood me.
– This is understandable, even to me. By the way, Ford told me that he was also from Moscow, where he graduated from the university.
– How from Moscow? So he's not American?
– American, one hundred percent. Born in Moscow, Idaho, where he graduated from the university. Here's a coincidence.
– It is a pity that I did not know this, otherwise I could beat such a coincidence with my guests. True, they will have many pleasant memories in their memory. I treated them to your carbonated invention. Moreover, first he treated me, and only then explained the technology. They immediately offered me to patent this technology with them. I said that this is not mine, they know the author, and he presents this technology to all good people. Let me give you twenty grams of carbonated disequilibrium.
A jet of life-giving moisture erupted into my glass with such a noise, as if gin had finally jumped out with it.
– I added gas especially for the guests, they instantly appreciated it. Come on, for your nostalgia.
The body accepted the contents of the glass with a kind of tremulous joy. He remembers, he remembers all the good things. A warm, pacifying sensation spilled over my consciousness, and from there it filled the rest of the body. Against this background, Kuzin's smiling face seemed especially benevolent and pleasant.
– Alexey Dmitrievich, I think I'll go. Here's just one question. How do we keep in touch? The relativistic translator only works within a radius of several kilometers.
– Iraliy, did I say that now there are no restrictions for him on the entire surface of the planet?
– Sorry, I'm got tired up. Ionospheric channels now provide us with stable communication. These are the developments of Nikola Tesla. So we will be in touch wherever you are. I mean on Earth.
– Got it.
– I wish you a good experience. You must take an American with you.
– I will contact him immediately. If he refuses, then….
– Then, I'm sorry, I won't let you go without him.
– Okay. Bye.
Since my American partner had a direct link, ten minutes later I puzzled him with my proposal. I promised a good dose of Russian northern exoticism, and we should have had a rest for a long time, far from the services that take care of us. He wished to discuss the possibility of the proposed trip with his leadership. In about twenty minutes the go-ahead was received. I have always admired the ability of Americans to make decisions, cutting off various kinds of secondary conditions. Each of its energy bases agreed to start at the same time. So far, it was only possible to control the launch and return of any object, both living and nonliving, from the Russian or American part of the Global Quantum complex. We could now, within the same time, control from different points in space the operation of both generators of the quantum nonlocality of the Global Quantum. But already in the final stage there were developments allowing to control these generators, being at any not only spatial, but also temporal distance from these bases. And here it was not without the use of the phenomenon of controlled quantum nonlocality, which ensured the translation of a command for certain actions from the future or the past to the appropriate point and moment of the day.
We made an appointment with Dr. Ford in my office in 64 hours. In Moscow at this time it will be two o'clock on Monday night, in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, respectively – 10 o'clock in the morning of the same day. From there we get to the place by sea. Just in case, I secured a written order from the commander of the Pacific Fleet about all kinds of assistance to us. By this time, the fleet had lost its strategic importance. For the most part, he now performed the functions of support ships in emergency situations, some of the ships actively participated in various tourist cruises, and some were used as an additional resource for the delivery of goods in difficult conditions. Therefore, I was not tormented by remorse for the distraction of any of his combat units from service.
