    • THE TICKLES"In the distant future, they will have what I call the Tickles. People will gointo a big darkened auditorium and they will be mass-hypnotized. Insteadof identifying themselves with the characters on the screen, they will bethat character, and when they buy their ticket, they will be able to choosewhich character they want to be. They will suffer all of the agonies andenjoy the romance with a beautiful woman or handsome man.
