Yes, it is. Well, with two to choose from, the chance was about 50% ;)

Don't i know that... though i must admit, playing with my new toys 
(Cinema 10.1 + new computer) has broadend my toolchest and options to 
create scenes in 3D significantly. :)

Oops. I was actually hoping for answers to those :)

Ah, it's sort of "bringing alive a mental image" or doing a "living 
freeze-frame". This is something i've not even thought about. Inspiring! 
Leaves the viewer with a lot to think and wonder about. Me, i'm somehow 
stuck in the less artistic, more manufactural "getting that inner 
movie/script thing on the screen" mode... :S

Your scene brought (for me) quite a lot of associations, most from 
dystopian Sci-Fi films, i'll readily admit. "Ambulance", "Minority 
Report", even the multimedia elements of Mike Oldfield's "Songs of 
Distant Earth" ("Hibernaculum") or maybe something like the "decanting" 
plant described in Huxley's Brave New World...
