In Capital Investment, the slogan-mad Corporation rules in alliance with the immortality-chasing Chic Creatures, while the majority of New People toil away at assigned menial jobs while trying to replace a number with a title.Meeting what he thinks is the fabled “carrier of the faiths”, one untitled man becomes the emissary’s guide through the lands of Cultivation, where circular time is bought and sold, blue is more precious than gold and “the math” is the sole source of reason. Accompanied by The Drifter, a former Corporation assassin, and a machine girl (the prototype of the “ideal” woman of the future), they journey to the mythological Urban Jungle—a vine-covered super-city standing in resolute testament to the Old People’s ambitions and egos.For one it is a mission to reinstate the faiths, for another a quest for knowledge, and for the Drifter, a chance to redeem himself in the eyes of Evangelista, the ruler-in-exile.

What awaits them amidst the remains of the past is nothing less than a choice between unstable order and another pointless war. Cultivation is a world divided by frighteningly familiar parallels. A world where having a name means everything, and where those who control the present control the past.Cultivores is a savagely ironic vision of human existence post climatic atrocity- it is a fantastic trek through an outrageous sci-fi pantheon, where pop-cult ideologies reign and Orwell’s 1984 prophesies are fast-forwarded to a bizarre conclusion.
