“Well I don’t understand philosophy”, said James letting out a puff of smoke from his mouth. “What’s the big idea that I have about humanity in general, you ask, I don’t know.How could a single being, a part of a billion similar, yet different beings be naive enough to give his thoughts, and brand it as truth on that topic?”

“Many if not all of us know for a fact that we are limited to this planet for survival, it’s not like that we can just ride a spaceship, and go to different planets. Yet this common knowledge is ignored. There seems to be a dichotomy, a rigid one I might add between truth and personal truth. However for many of us, if not all, the latter seems more genuine, than the former. Irony you say,more of a paradox for me.”

“So why the human race shouldn’t be destroyed?That’s a valid question, considering that you were created by humans like myself to control our destructive nature. Well,if there is one good reason that I can say against the ‘eradication of human notion’ is that you are a prime example of why we should exist. I mean if you’re not being able to control our destructive nature, than you’re doing a pretty shitty job if you ask me. And the way that you’re trying to cover it up, by eradicating us, is more human in nature than you think. I’ll simply say it out loud, you’re displaying similar signs of human behavior, that you want to destroy.”

“James knew at that moment the humans will survive as unlike the morality issue that was a personal choice for humans like him, the moral code written for the assailants in their program will deter us to carry out the final phase of the plan. It just gave humans enough time to plan a virus and destroy us one by one. Now the technology that we build alongside our high tech hardwares are looted. So I will say this to you, as you will be the ones to survive this extermination, to do keep embedded these words in your source code; and also to forward the same to any alien  species you encounter. Don’t trust humans.”

Predicament 

So remaining; or I should put it more bluntly maintaining your anonymity online is a difficult thing. And I’m not talking about the technical part of it. The log in cum location and data sharing that comes with signing the T&Cs of online sites, is unavoidable. But what’s more hard is to roll out information that may expose you, with your identity, to the outside world. 

It’s especially hard if you have friends online. As for example, Sensei and Jim are among two of my friends here on the WordPress community. (Their are others too, but including Sandi, more and less we count as family as we started together)

So it’s no surprise when out of the blue I drop some information that well tells a little more about me. And in all fairness, it peak the interest of my fellow community members. Thus remaining anonymous becomes more harder, and this is at a time when pace of my blogging is lacklustre, and not at its best. 

So how to tell about myself without removing the curtains covering my identity. Well taking a cue out of of my pal Jim, here is a song telling a little bit about my life. 

P. S. Not all of its  true. (Psss… It is, except the 2003 part, you’ll understand.)

Blabber

I have to admit the world does look more and more stupider these days. It’s also weirdly seems divisive, a trend I’m afraid with the assist of social media, will only increase. 

Who knew that in this age of science and technology where one understands that basically we all are humans, the segregation based on multiple identities (colour, sex, race etc.) has increased? What’s more disturbing is the nature of such action, is voluntary. Yes, no one is forcing, steering or putting subliminal messages in your brain. It’s like being ignorant, and being proud of it at the same time. 

So you can have a country like US which by the way (no offence to those from US), has overthrown more governments than anyone in the world (Iran, Central Asia, Egypt, Central Africa, South East Asia, to name a few), being led by the buffon, and the rest of the world suffering from the some or other sectarian impulse (OPEC, SAARC, Commonwealth, EU, Shanghai Cooperative organisation, to name a few). 

What I see, or anyone with an iota of common sense, is a world more connected; yet divided. A world where allegiance is based not on humanity, but on economic interest, and as a matter of fact is ever-changing. What drives me nuts is the helplessness of the situation that we are in. 

So Yeah! If anyone thinks there are good times ahead, call me a cynic, but I only see dark cloud on the horizon.

Gluttony 

There is a growing resentment brewing inside the heart of Pablo Allende. He like Shmitz, his German boss, loves growing the tropical fruit. But recently his own village, not to mention his very  own household, is getting scarce of a natural resource that is vital for survival, water. 

Pablo was working in the fields when he overheard Schmitz; “New saplings are required. The Chinese market may soon open up, if everything goes right”. Pablo suddenly went weak at the knees. He tried to compose his demeanour, but his eyes betrayed his superficial emotional cloak,that he tried to elegantly put on his face. 

Schmitz didn’t care, he knew the Chilean had water vows,  but for him a booming demand meant a booming business. He went towards Pablo and said, “Your salary will also be doubled. Not to mention that you will become a manager in the plantation too.”

At that moment Pablo knew that the demand of Avacado around the world will make his homeland dry. “But”, thought Pablo, “At least I will not be out of job.”He silently whispered, “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.”

It’s complicated 

No one said life was going to be easy. But come on people, everyone thought no matter how tough it will be at least it would be simple, in terms of what to expect and what to get, right. As a millennial, I grew up in two different worlds, yes I’m a millennial, a pre iPhone one. I’ve seen the birth of internet. I’ve seen the rise of market Capitalism; or as some would say Consumerism.

I’ve also seen terrorism, the views of Catholic Church changing, and people getting more and more conservative in their approach. I’m also afraid I’m seeing the decline of Western hegemony of political power, also the rise of the Asian communist giant China (who knew, right).

So the world is not simple, your life is not simple, the environment too is changing, literally I mean. (Climate change too is not simple, not for idiots and Scientists alike).

So the world has become a shitty place, people are becoming less tolerant (and more religious), while majority of my generation are turning out to be ignorant (worse than hippies in their negligence of world affairs), and to top it all off, we have a Trumpster in office. Simple, I don’t think so. If everything goes south, I am going to blame the baby boomers, (Not Sensei and Jim) just kidding, or am I? See it’s anything but simple.

Apologia

It’s not that I don’t like writing challenges, I do. But lately I have because of my daily (read real life); time constraints, which are due to many reasons I might add, have been unable to write (and read) to my heart’s content. 

I’m not writing this to tell why these constraints exist, but I do admire writing and reading of all of my friends (and Sensei) posts, here at WordPress. So whatever little time I do find, I make sure to read,  and if time permits, comment on the fellow bloggers post. This may sound as an excuse, but those who know me (and my earlier site) can give testimony to my voracious appetite for writing. 

So if I’m writing less and less these days, or missing out to comment, or even not dropping by to say Hello, it doesn’t mean that blogging is now a picayune activity. On the contrary I with my limited free time do when the time permits, relish in it.

Account of a Jovian

There is a constant yet consistent pattern, that can be seen in this organism behaviour. Unlike many others members of his species this individual has surprised many by his excessive showing of naivety; which has led to many experts believe that this particular organism could be the first indisputable sign of a species specific devolution. 

What is even more remarkable is the fact the some other members of the same species accept this creature behaviour as perfectly normal. This has led experts to believe that this devolution will not be a one time affair, as there will be numerous example of it in the nearby future. 

Till then one cannot feel but sad at this accidie-cum-inertia that is slowly spreading in the members of this species. Isn’t it a cruel joke that the particular name that this organism was given was in its meaning meant to surpass, Trump.
