Wow. That story was intense. My heart was racing as my adrenaline was pumping. Hey, wait a minute...
I too was unclear about where this was all taking place, as well as a few other things.
Reading the screenplay text at https://www.drabblecast.org/2019/07/19/ ... -solution/
helped. There, it becomes very clear that this stuff is all happening in a "butcher shop for food-grade meat humans" because, well, the text says exactly that. I got the feeling that it was all happening on Earth because that's where all the hungry people are. But it isn't clear.
Interestingly, the text also strongly suggests that the main character, Clay, is being actively harvested for his meat while the story is happening. ("The sound of a meat saw powers up, and Clay screams.") It is unclear to me whether he is having meat carved off that then regrows or if he's being killed. The former would seem to make most sense.
One other thing that remains unclear to me is whether the goal of the project is to generate adrenaline for its own sake, or just to grow human meat. The medical professionals in the story say they are “Squeezing twice as much adrenaline from every meatsack, and “look at the adrenaline collected.” Those things suggest they want the adrenaline as a byproduct. Maybe adrenaline makes people grow meat faster?
I couldn't find the rest of the story either. If you go to http://www.dagazmedia.com/universal-solution/
you can sign up for updates. It would be fun to read the rest for sure, and even more fun to listen to it.
