All the slaves of the world were there. Agricultural slaves, industrial slaves, office slaves, home slaves… Some of them were 500 years old, some of them were 200 years old, and some of them were 30 years old.
It was worse than the fear of failure. Lea was falling. She broke her mind so badly dad she was not able to find a single piece of it. Physically, it was the same. She couldn’t eat. She couldn’t sleep. She couldn’t take a walk…
The 5000 Bitcoin Paper Wallet traveled the world for eight years and finally came back to the city where it was born. It got ice creamed in Florence. It got bitten by a baby in Busan. It got loved in Saint Petersburg…
There were no jobs. Zero. None. Null. Kaput. Drivers, doctors, teachers, managers, workers, farmers, researchers, pilots, artists, coders, academicians, engineers, psychologists… were all unemployed. Everything changed in the early years of the 2000s. Artificial Intelligence 101 (this was its name) turned out to be very intelligent. There was no need for human brain and labor anymore. AI was doing everything for us. Yes, everything.
Tomorrow walked to one of the oldest stores in Osaka and he bought a special Tantō. Tantō is a traditional Japanese knife that was used by the samurai class of feudal Japan.
As he walked out of the store, without hesitating a second, Tomorrow grabbed his Tantō and stabbed himself from his heart.
The whole sky was a typewriter. Stars were the letters. The sky was writing, writing, writing… It just couldn’t stop. It was the biggest live event. Life was texting me and I was getting the message. Life was saying that the average life expectancy for males in this world is 70. If you have a life to live, just live it. Don’t be a complicator. Remember Carl Sagan, “We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it’s forever.”
Building resilience is somehow related to being comfortable in your own skin. It’s not hard to flirt with yourself if you read books like “Zorba the Greek” (by Nikos Kazantzakis). This novel is a “love life – love yourself” course and you will feel alive as you start to dance with the book.
Passion is medicine. Just love to do something. I have no idea how will you be able to do it. The good part is once you find it, you will leave all the “reasons” behind. Nothing or no one can hurt you after this point because you simply won’t have time for the trash. Passion is a resilience builder.
You need to be ready to be shot and killed by an idea. An idea can kill “the old you”. The old you is bold. The old you never listens. The old you owns everything. The old you has obligations. The old you carries immovable properties. The old you carries tons. The old you carries your old brain. The old you needs lies. The old you finds new lies. The old you lies. The old you pretends to be the new you. The old you is the enemy of creative thinking. The old you amuses “the enemy”. The old you is an elephant in a vase. The old you is heavy. The old you has no air to start a fire. The old you has no “inner water” to cry. The old you is dry. The old you is drier than a never chosen road. The old you is the combination of all the alternative lives that belongs to yesterday.
Now it’s now o’clock. It is so now that you never felt so now before. Your now is so big that you walk with your now right now. Your now talks. Your now smiles. Your now doesn’t search for an enemy. Your now is light. Your now is an ant on the grass of an empty stadium. Your now cries like Niagara. Your now has no belongings. Your now doesn’t have clothes. Your now doesn’t look sexy. Your now doesn’t look cool. Your now doesn’t want to look like someone or something. Your now is younger than your birth. Your now is a feeling that feels like the real reality. Your now is fresh when it’s punched. Your now is alive when it’s killed by a second. Hand by hand, you and your now walk together on the death and rebirth path of your now and you touch every millisecond of it. You will never leave your now alone since you understand that it’s your very own now. Your now is your laws of physics. Your now is your offspring. Your now is your black hole. Your now is your universe that was born into your now. You could never exist, think and create without the existence of your now which is stronger than any philosophy that has ever been created in the history of humankind. Meeting your now is meeting with time. It is now o’clock now. It is not early. It is not late. It’s now.
“The amount of noise which anyone can bear undisturbed stands in inverse proportion to his mental capacity.“
Let’s play with it:
“The amount of noise production which any creator can bear undisturbed stands in inverse proportion to his/her creativity capacity.”
