Life is just… Your brain’s response to pressure, light, electrical impulses, particles and itself.

When the extraterrestrials made contact, we were excited but apprehensive. 

When they arrived on our planet, we were too overwhelmed by the whole experience. They even came dressed in what seemed like exotic costumes, in colours we hadn’t seen and in shapes we couldn’t recreate.

Who would’ve guessed that that was their battle armour and weapon system?

The day I almost died was when I realised we aren’t truly alive. O death we met once but fleetingly, I cannot wait for your embrace.

There are no ghosts in the house. That was the guarantee and that’s what I wish to believe. Except I’m running out of logical explanations for all the crap that’s been happening and I’m this close to calling up my agent to give him an earful. Those damn ghosts don’t pay rent nor taxes so this property is definitely out of bounds. Our minister for paranormal activities didn’t do all that work for agents to be handing out guarantees willy nilly.

He wasn’t especially bright or outstanding, but he was very good at one thing: working smart. And by employing this gift of his to the greatest capacity possible, he outworked and outsmarted us in the long run. In a span of but five years he had scaled heights most of us were only beginning to consider. Looking back… maybe he was exceptional. I guess we never stood a chance anyway.

As we move forward with technology, the further back into our past we can reach. We will one day know more about civilizations that lived thousands of years before us, than their great grandchildren ever did.

The one thing we risk is losing information and lessons through redundancy. As our mediums of storage and communication advance, older tech gets phased out and more rapidly with time. The irony is sometimes even with our complicated gadgets we are unable to understand, let alone rebuild, the technologies developed by our forefathers whom arguably had very much less to work with.

Sometimes I feel like writing something wise and I sit and think and think but nothing comes out. Would you say that’s not a very wise use of time?

There’s an appeal about madness; people think it cool to think themselves crazy and boast such labels. But the truly mad think everyone else has lost it.
