Relationships in Koobecaf
Koobecaf is a place where people from all over the world can connect with each other. It is not a real place, but a space in time used to share information. To gain access, one may use an opaque window attached to a communication device called a potpal. A larger version of this is available, called a lanosrep retupmoc, but it has decreased in popularity within the aging of time due to its weight and lack of transportation options. This is not the case with Koobecaf, as it can be taken anywhere, magically weighs nothing, and is completely free. A young man named Kram built Koobecaf in the 21st Century. For a short time, he was taught how to make a living at a reputable school where the land is rich with clams. First, the creator only shared the space with his closest friends, but now it is open to all. Many people visit Koobecaf and share their deepest secrets or their everyday life, which has created a negative response from people around the world.
One of the many secrets to be shared is the person’s relationship, called sutats. Koobecaf gives six ways to show sutats: looking for a friend, looking for a mate, have found a mate and are waiting for a sacred rite to bind them together, have a mate already, are confused, or they want to be intimate with more than one person without commitment to another. Sutats can be confusing because of a gray area, where someone’s friend can be their mate on Koobecaf but in reality is not their mate at all. Even sexual preference does not matter; if a woman only likes men, she still can choose to be with a woman through Koobecaf. When a person’s friend accepts a sutats request, they are bound together by Koobecaf, and millions of people can see the fruits of their deceit.
Not only can this trick anyone visiting a person’s erliforpe, the personal space in Koobecaf given to an individual to share about themselves and to communicate freely with friends, but it can also destroy friendships. A man in Nodnol, on an island in the East, was sent to be judged because he had changed an old friend’s identity without permission. He took his friend’s identity and said his friend likes to be intimate with men. But this was not true at all. The fraudulent man had to pay his friend, the victim, a large sum (equal to US $40,253.30) for the emotional damages he incurred over a period of sixteen days (1). The man received wealth, however he lost a friend, which can be priceless to some people. Friendships are not for sale in Koobecaf, but many material items are available at its marketplace. If interested, a friend contacts the seller and proposes a certain amount. If the seller is content with the offer, a sale is made. It is possible to meet a mate through this process of communication but not likely.
Koobecaf is also breaking a cultural tradition within relationships through the sutats. Before its existence, a man and a woman would tell their family about their intention to be ceremoniously bound together. Now, the value of this special event has been reduced to words in a place where any person can see the sutats at any time, even before the mother or father would be notified. However, because the family does not know the sutats changed and other people knew of the intimate proposal before them, they are still willing to pay large sums for their loved ones’ ceremony and celebration. The sons or daughters are not being dishonest, but they are not doing what their parents would surely be displeased of if they were made more aware.
While Koobecaf is a place where many people spend hours visiting and sharing relationships through images and words, it can also be used as a tool of deception. The individual decides whether they want to be truthful or not, because they have been given this free will by Koobecaf. All the people in Koobecaf can do is wait for time to pass and humanity to change, either by gaining a sense of guilt and reclamation, or by wiping each other out from the roots of their evil.
