The Present life.
Words contained in this post are just that words, this is not a story, not a warning, nothing just a way of me relaxing, dealing with my existence.
If I happened to be original one might be scare about what they are about to read, but since I’m a constellation of idea by others, whatever that seems familiar or coincidental it’s just that a casualty but there is not truth behind it.
When I was very young I would avoid confrontation with my sister, she was born with a fiery character and I was a loving sensitive fragile boy. My mother recounts how my sis would snatched a toy from me by force and how I get it back by pretending my new toy (one I would pick up and didn’t care about) was better.
In a planet far away in another age, a jailed species were led to believe that they were actually free. There was no confrontation with their slave masters since the master had them fight among themselves. In fact most habitants thought they controlled their own destiny.
The means of control were quite easy and you could reduced it to the word “comparison”, “the powers at be” kept people in check by having them compared themselves to others, the one doing slightly better were the winners, the one slightly worse, where the losers.
That comparison and competition between each individual kept the whole population numb about their slavery. It didn’t matter how bad life actually was, if one could find some satisfaction in another one doing worse.
Prisons within the planet weren’t there to really punish bad guys; it was just a friendly reminder that things could be worse.
Now being slave wasn’t the biggest issue, being slave and not knowing wasn’t the biggest issue either, the big problem was what was about to happen next.
The master had advanced in their knowledge of the physical world and life sciences; they had also created many machines and computers that were making the species more irrelevant with each passing day. No longer were slaves needed when you had machines to work for them.
Now time was right to get rid of all the habitant of our unnamed planet. Of course in a similar fashion to the slavery the exterminating operation will be done silently utilizing social tools to make individuals gladly accept their grim fate.
