First I want to state that I am not an experienced writer, or much on bedtime tale's or any of such, as this journal will clearly show. But just wanted to add this short bedtime or fireplace story for the Holiday Season. And what inspire's this is many of the frustration's that I hear and read due to the current condition. So ... I wanted to add a lil short story as a bedtime tale ... let's just say. :-) **** Part 2 linked at bottom ... Enjoy!
Once upon a time on Earth in the early 21st century, the species and world was going through another periodic change, that happen's every couple thousand year's or so, where past mistake's and way's catch up and show their flaw's, as well as need for change in direction. Even the earth goes through natural change over the thousand's and million's of year's, continent's are alway's in motion as well as the water's, and jungle's become desert's, sea's become land's, etc. A time that was difficult as even past era's for many .... yet most beneficial for those who have power and wealth. Many of those with power and wealth didnt really get it through hard work and innovative thinking, creating anything, or even being heroes in battle victories ... but just because they had enough money simply to orchestrate a vision of what a Utopian society would be to them ... yet they forgot all those truely great people who were the backbone, creator's, thinker's, scientist's, and real heroes that made all this possible. And even since everything has it's price ... even the great energy sources that had us living so well, have even started creating problem's that were not anticipated. Being that the warming of the Earth was accellerating melting of the ice cap's at rate's hundred's time's faster than would have happened naturally over a much longer period. But ... everyone wanted their cake and to eat it, and no one any longer wanted to sacrifice a thing of what they had ... or give to receive any more, and everyone's power and confidence went to their head's, they created mega religion's to brainwash the people better than they ever were able to in past histories, new mega media's and advertising, various biotech implant's, computer generated mind manipulation's, gimmick's and such, as well as institution's to educate them, and controlled them by keeping them all in debt, even still in debt from the grave ... the world was taking, taking, taking ... and giving less, and less and less. People wouldnt even control their usage of anything, and their waste, and regardless of starvation, and new diseases because of the climatic change that started to run rampant through the human species and even other species, natural disaster's and such, they just continued hanging on to the past ... clinging to their flaw's, and even still advocating to over populate for no reason other than excessive self gratification, labour replenishment's, and keeping wages rock bottom and profit's huge, etc. Continueing more and more to manufacture war's, not to free people, or to stop injustice's, or to defend one's land's ... but to rape every resource they can from every land they can.
As time passed ... poverty, starvation, unemployment increased, debt's that were never getting paid, and instead just being handed down to the masses while the majority of wealth ratholed all their monetary and mineral's wealth to themselves, kept tight fisted and let themselves go unregulated with no discipline, while they were only concerned with regulating the masses and forcing more code's, moral's, and responsibilities on them. They had now let their financial system's/ institution's be run strictly by nothing more than well educated thug's and programme's on computer's that even milked the resources across the board more and more ... they lost all self control. Them and their offspring in power bought out all idea's, science's, and everything they could, even using new science's and technologies eventually to make their goal that "they only" would never die of natural causes, and/ or have facilities to protect them from humanities ill action's and/ or any act's of nature on any catastrophic level, and even made their part biological and part technological replica's to carry on more of their way's, which the original species also revolted against. Yet still failing to respect the power of the universe and natural law's ... and still degrading the earth and it's inhabitant's. New defense technologies guaranteed also more control and submission to their goal's, even now controlling through more laws and regulation's of/ on peoples communication's and voice's, with technologies watching and listening to every move people make. But none of them looked at the overall condition's and/ or consequence's that come with it either when anything loses balance ... they were all too busy thinking one way only and not looking at the entire picture ... nor any longer thinking that risk and work get rewarded, but just how they do thing's, using old principle's while the species and planet were changing.
Eventually after a continuance of bubble/ bust's economic's repeating itself now faster than they had even back in the 20th century ... their prepaid politic's running out of minute's and patience, their power posse allegiance and affiliate's failing and turning on now each other more than past, new group's of terror and revolt they havent anticipated sabotaging their pipeline's, refineries, military and arm's facilities, and using techologies to shut down everything from power grid's to their most secured private enviroment's and mega investment's ... the tide's started turning ... and it became time to pay the due's for all they have received, without giving or contributing a thing for it. Their education institution's have collapsed slowly, their stronghold mega religious empire's were failing, and their weapon's and technologies to control couldnt even go up against the now heavy population's that they themselves at a time encouraged and promoted. Crime increased, because many even decided that they didnt care if they were caught, because incarceration was food and shelter if anything, and when people started being asked to give up their lives when they got sick and old for a higher cause to humanity, even that faced mega resistance, no matter the propaganda they used to make it sound pleasing and rewarding, and the incentive's offered during their last day's werent even nothing ... they had just lowered the species to a point, where many would do anything just for a decent place to live and meal's. Just how they created their new global empire as well, getting support from the masses, by saying it was for global unity, but was instead strictly for global domination by them, with no border's to limit their abuse and out of control and unbalanced greed.
While so busy the power's at ripping each other off, while entertaining themselves, the new breed's were thinking and catching up, forming new alliances and group's, making change's themselves to how they think and teach their offspring, and finding new way's to revolt and vent a wrath that the icon's also neglected to anticipate, getting around all the new regulation's, law's, and code's ... not being any longer devoted to their institution's, product's, code's of conduct, forcefed moral's, principle's, or anything else that these icon's created ... but instead decided to look at humanities flaw's and make thing's more balanced. This eventually led to a new way of thought ... and those who did have this iconic power either played the new game, changed and downsized their power, or went down and lost all and failed. People just simply walked away from it and ignored it, abandoned it, and started a new way and world ... and finally coming to realize that those who been dictating had actually never nothing to offer, and couldnt even survive without them. The species reduced it's out of control population growth, and focused more on quality instead of quantities, a new splinter of the human species came about and evolved. The new science's and technologies changed everything from agricultural to energies, reproduction, to how gravity would be defined. But the change was the uplifting part, learning to respect their planet more and now to give and contribute before they receive, and to pay in full across the board.
POST NOTE: This hasnt a thing to do with the bedtime story above ... but I want to point this out simply because over the next couple year's, there will be a huge increase of this talk, alot of paranoia and such, and because it has been constantly over the last couple year's or so brought up to me during small chat by local folk's around town and in Texas concerning this "2012 Event" with some read, video's, chart's, link's, and much more here . Look ... I will make this simple ... there is no talk from what Mayan studies/ art's have been so far uncovered (even though only a small fraction been uncovered, because of the difficulty in trying to access the area's of past habitat's because of the jungle's, terrain, etc) , that the end of the world will be in 2012. Like many past civilisation's who studied cycle's, astronomy, astrology, etc, etc. Mayan's were simply master's of keeping time, and some of the earliest math related. I mean ... you didnt have much else to do back then but art (and the art is a beauty unmatched I may add), symbolism, written language's, etc. All these folk's thought from their studies, is that life, star's, and such have cycle's of change is all ... and we know from science's that life does change on earth, and that there are cycle's, alway's have been, a couple billion year's ago only, there was nothing on earth as it is now either. As I write this, even with all the gloom science finding's about species becoming extinct, there are ALSO new species exploding in number's as well, many in the deepest depth's of our ocean's even. Of course, it's probably safe to say in a billion year's ... this planet wont be in rotation around the sun as it is now, or that even this sun will still exist as is, that is just the change and expansion of the solar system/ universe, etc ... and also by that time, our species as we know it, wont even exist either. Worrying about these thing's is pointless, you may as well worry about the close call's, etc with asteroid's/ meteor's, etc ... and even after the supposed big one hit that wiped out the dinosaur's ... it wasnt the "end of the world" ... okay(?) ... life just evolved once again in different form's, and throughout even the thousand year's or so of darkness proceeding that event, there was alway's some sort of life ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... or we wouldnt be here! :)
