Welcome to Paradox “The Girl Who Was Plugged In”

This was the very first episode of ‘Welcome to Paradox’ I ever saw.

Blatant advertising is illegal, and the only way to get your goods and services noticed is celebrity placements (current screen star toting new refreshing drink, or wearing latest fashions)

A despondent young woman has something that is missing from an executives ‘placements’. Emotion, longing, humanity. She meets one of the screen stars by accident, and he gives her a lily. That being the high point of her life, she decides to end her life on that high point. The exec gets medical team there in time to save her life and offer her a unique opportunity.

The “Living Doll” project. A vat grown body, perfect, pretty, but without a mind. She is offered to be the mind that drives it. To be plugged in. She accepts the offer. She embarks on a parallel life, but one that is destroying her, as she refuses to eat or sleep, and wants to remain in and as “Delphi”. Even if it kills her.

My personal opinion, this is where some of the ideas in AVATAR came from. Vat grown to adulthood body, piloted by a living mind, and wanting to transfer the human mind into the the grown body permanently.
