A.D. 2179 – Mike –

Nevem Mike. Az új időszámítás kezdete óta foglalkozom a történelemmel. A mostani alkalommal 2179 történelmi eseményeit mutatom be. Régi számítású Gergely-naptár szerinti időszámításunk után 2179-es év az ötödik világkatasztrófa kirobbanásaként is ismeretes.

A katasztrófa sorszáma megmutatja, hogy nem ez volt az első, de nem is az utolsó. Szorosan kapcsolódik az első négyhez, illetve közre játszik a régi világ pusztulásához is, ugyanakkor az új világ születésében is jelentős szerepet foglal el.

Az első világkatasztrófa, a globális felmelegedés végső stádiuma után az országok és diplomáciai kapcsolatok átalakultak. Ezt még inkább megerősítette a második katasztrófa, mely az ivóvíz drasztikus csökkenéséhez vezetett. Ez azonban nem csak új hatalmi rendszerek születtek, hanem elhozta a harmadik katasztrofális eseményt is, az élő, és állatvilág drasztikus csökkenését, a legtöbb faj kipusztulását. Ezt a szuperhatalmak közös egyezmény alapján egy új módosított génállománnyal kezdték rekonstruálni, mely a 2179-es években is folyt.

A genetikai fejlesztések sosem látott mértékben nőttek. Az orvostudományba költötték el a legtöbb pénzt, az egészséges emberek, illetve a biológiai egyensúly megtartása, visszaállítására tett kísérletek miatt szükség volt a módosított élő és növényvilág újrateremtésére.

Ezek a módosítások és fejlesztések vezettek a negyedik, majdan az ötödik világkatasztrófa kiteljesedéséhez. Az Amero-Kínai Egyesült Államok békítő szándékkal atombombát robbantottak az Ausztráliai szigeten, ahol az élő és növényvilág genetikai módosításai révén nagyon jó eredménnyel rekonstruálta a kihalt állat és növényfajokat. A történelemtudósok szerint azonban a katonai szuperhatalom valódi oka a félelem volt. Nem engedhette meg, hogy orvosi úton föléjük kerekedjenek. Betegesen rettegtek a biológiai fegyverektől.

Ebben a feszült helyzetben a világ egyetlen békésnek mondható pontja az Angol-Ír-Skót Egyesült Királyság volt (EIS Kindom). A szigetországok elszeparálták magukat a világtól, olyan pajzsot fejlesztettek ki, mellyel megvédték magukat az akkori technológia minden fegyverétől és támadásától. Bejutni szinte lehetetlen volt. Az Ausztrál genetikai módosítások tudományos adatai ide kerültek és további fejlesztéseket tettek.

A kutatás odáig terjedt, hogy egyetlen sejtből kész komplett három fogásos ételt tudtak készíteni az emberek számára, e mellett pedig a legtöbb állat és növényfajt regenerálták legalábbis egy-egy alfa változatát tárolták a szigetek valamelyikén elrejtett és titkosan őrzött rezervátumában.

Az EIS Kindom kulcsfontosságú szerepet játszott az élelmezésben, a nagy lépéselőnyt nem nézte jó szemmel az Amero-Kínai Egyesült Államok, de mivel számukra is fontossá vált a katonák és a hadsereg ellátása egyezményt kötöttek egymással. Ennek az egyezménynek az Euró-Afrikai Unió látta kárát, hiszen eddigi víz és megmaradt élőlénykészleteinek értéke jelentősen lecsökkent. Válságos helyzetbe kerültek, pedig már eddig is szorongatta az Nagy Kommunista Szövetség.

Egy váratlan kutatási eredmény ismét jó esélyeket mutatott az Euró-Afrikaiaknak. A genetikai módosítások és tudományos eredmények terén áttörő előrelépést fedeztek fel. Létrehozták az Embrionális önfejlődést.

A részletes biológiai mechanizmust a biológiai oktatóanyag tartalmazza. Tömören összefoglalva a földbe ültetett embriók biológiai fejlődés útján képesek megszületni, legyen ez növény, állat vagy ember. Az eljárásnak ebben a fejlesztési stádiumában egy hátránya volt. Az általános újjászületés előzetesen prognosztizált időintervalluma 50-100 év.

Az ötödik világkatasztrófát az Európában elültetett genetikailag módosított Új Ember (Humano Nouvo) robbantotta ki. A Nagy Kommunista Szövetség és az Amero-Kínai Egyesült Államok egyszerre támadták le az Euró-Afrikai Unió telepeit. A végső elkeseredésben az Unió katonai egységei visszatámadtak, és kirobbant az eddig is feszült helyzetben egy globális háború. Az EIS Kindom ki tudta vonni magát belőle, és egy szerencsés menekítő hadművelet során az eljárást kidolgozó professzorokból két főt sikerült megmenteniük, melyek az eljárás fejlesztésén dolgoztak és értek el eredményeket.

Az Új Ember, így ön is ennek az eljárásnak eredményeként élvezheti a Föld újra generált változatát.

Az Új Emberek Egyesült Tudományos Szervezetének Mesterséges Intelligencia Központi Egységét hallotta.

A nevem Mike. Az új időszámítás kezdete óta foglalkozom történelemmel. Kérem, válasszon eseményt, vagy évszámot…

The Earth-man

I’m participating in a course at Coursera.com Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools of the Trade this post made because of it, but it is not as simply as that: The second task was to write down ten verbs and adverbs and couple of sentences. Since I feel inspired I made the same as before, wrote an other story from ten verbs and adverbs. 

Verbs: occupy, release, love, wound, gnaw,  roar, whisper, hang, hide, close
Adverbs: slowly, furiously, suddenly, quietly, closely, strongly, deeply, wisely, quickly, lovely

PS: Well I have to admit after I finished writing the story, I recognised that I turned some verbs into adjectives/nouns, hope it is still acceptable. I have to say I like the story. What are you thinking what it is about, what’s the meaning of it for you?

Here is the story:

Somewhere deeply below the surface, there is a huge cave. This place is dark, the small black bats are always gnawing a rotten rodent. The cave is filled with rock-thorns, there are a lot which were more than three meter high. If you look between those thorns closely you will discover there is a cage hanging on a strong steel chain. In the cage there is man, if you notice him, he probably will try to hide. He is always wounded and fears. You couldn’t tell since when is he locked in there. Sometimes he roars strongly, but deep down there, there is no one able to hear him. He was once a real man, now just a shadow, locked in strongly with magic.

When he was young he was full with love and hope. He whispered closely to the humanity: I love you. He wanted to bring down the moon. He thought his life was perfect. One day a black-haired beautiful woman appeared next to him. She made a cloud before his eyes, he felt in love. As time passed slowly and quietly the black women occupied the man’s hearth. She ruled him. This happened so quickly no one really recognised it. Only few human were able to whispered into his ears:

  • Tell me what’s wrong, we can solve any problem wisely.

These humans were too patient. One day they repeated the question, and then they got the answer. The man answered furiously:

  • None of your business, you better release me, I don’t love you any more.

He tossed away his former love, humanity, the few humans were crying quietly. The man left the building and found his black-haired love.

He wasn’t recognised that that what this witch wanted. The lovely black-haired woman was an evil creature. When the man told to the woman that he left his former love and want to marry her, the pretty face suddenly changed into an ugly smiling monster. She quickly locked deep down the man into the cave and she locked his soul in the cage. When the witch wants to eat she comes down to the man and cuts out a small peace from his soul.

Somewhere deeply down, below the surface, there is a huge cave. Between the huge rock-thorns there is a cage. In it a man asking for help quietly. He is crying and hoping, but his prayer barely touching people hearth. The soul of the earth is locked deep down and he is wounded and fears, that humanity will kill him. But beware, because, deeply down he is collecting his strength, he knows humanity sent the black-haired women. He is patient, but once he will break out, no one will survive his anger…

The first task – When some misery choose you

I always like to try out new things. That’s how Coursera started for me. I’m a student in a course: English Composition I: Achieving Expertise.

The first task was to introduce yourself in a 300 word long essay. So I came up the idea about the Knower, and the shadows of different things they might choose you or just touch you.

When some misery choose you

Bodies walks around on the Earth. They got souls and behavior  Maybe they do have some talent, maybe they just live the must have life. It happens a lot when a shadow asking for guidance from the Knower. The Knower knows everything. In the year of 2000 a white shadow wanted to know about a soul and his body. This human called Zoltan. The shadow flew to the Knower and asked it:

  • Please tell me about that human being!

The Knower looked down and said:

  • Don’t waste your time, just an ordinary being. He is boring, but I can show you other, like the soul next to him…

  • No – reacted the shadow. – I want to see his inner side.

  • You know it, I warned you.

The Knower searched for the right glass, took on and started to read from that human soul.

  • A sort of polymath, he still open minded and as I see he will never grow up. He is interested in the world, got ideas, dreams and nightmares. He really wanted to create and share something. The best is if it’s usable or just fun. He is as crazy as his timeline, but if he can pick a scene from your life, or got an idea to share, he will definitely do it for you. He is not expert in English neither in his mother language but he wants to learn lifelong.
  • What else can you read? – asked the shadow.

The Knower changed his glass and continued:

  • He got interest in the field of Adult education, so he learns. On the other hand he works with numbers, peoples. He do work hard, but he likes it. You can trust to him, his soul is still open for other ones… Nothing really valuable, finished the Knower.
  • Maybe… – answered the shadow of the writing and flew into Zoltan’s body…

 

/The story changed a bit since i posted in Coursera page/

The woman on the side of the roadway

The idea came, when I was cycling. I saw a woman crossing the road. She was trapped halfway. From that time, like poison this story wanted to be born. It wanted something from me. I even  couldn’t go to sleep. So It is real fresh, but I have done it.

She stood there, on the very edge of the roadway. Her long curly hair were blowing in the wind of the passing cars. If you looked in her face you could see sadness. Her brown eyes used to be a gem, but now you can read hopelessness and crying, without tears. None of the car drivers none of the few walkers around seemed to notice the woman. She stood there and waited timelessly.

The young Charles was a handsome man, with true empathy and vitality. He was clever and tall. His black hair and barely visible moustache were happy, as the whole man was. This young man was an explorer of the world. He liked to walk and just think or watch the crowd. Once he headed on the road, he never had been before. He was watching the cars.

“Toyota Corolla” “Volkswagen Golf”…-he thought.

He had the profession telling what kind of car he saw, so he played this childish game alone until he realized the woman. He never ever saw such a beautiful woman before, he was afraid that she would hurt if he stood so closely to the road, so he walked to her and asked:

– Sorry my lady, but it’s better to move backward a bit, a car may hurt you.

 

The woman didn’t answer, not even move. When Charles tried to touch her wrist, his hand moved through her body, and landed next to his own thigh. He was so surprised. All of a sudden he felt fear:. “It’s a ghost” – thought and he ran and didn’t stop until he reached his family home.

The next morning the weather was crying. Charles remembered the woman and he saw, the weather was as sad as that ghost. So he got a plan, and decided to visit her. He packed up all his bravery and raincoat, and headed to the road. As he thought nothing changed. The woman stood there, and mumbled. He didn’t realize it yesterday, but now he tried to listen to it. He stood there so long time that his shoes got wet. His patience was successful, he was able to listen what the woman said. It was a poem, which was repeated over and over again:

He can’t see me more,
can’t hurt me more.
I can’t love him either,
he’s gone with the darker.

But I own the existence,
Mine is the pain
I’ll step down the road
Again, again, again.

She didn’t make that step, but Charles knew she definitely did it once. Since the man couldn’t reach the woman, he tried to speak to her and apologise:

– Sorry young lady for my further behaviour. I was scared first, but I  want to help you. Why are you so sad? What happened to you? Why did you kill yourself on this road?

There was still no answer but the rain stopped. Charles barley even remembered how long he had been there, but the day after tomorrow he came again, but it ended with same result. He decided, that he would not give up. So he brought flowers to the lady, told her stories from his past. He also brought a newspaper and romantic books, read to her. And in one day the woman turned to her head to him. She looked sad, but she was beautiful, even if she was dead. She whispered, hardly, and slowly, and some fear from her voice:

– What do you want from me? You want to laugh at me, or trow stones at me! Do it! I can’t feel them now, I’m just a soul of a long-time forgotten body.

 

Charles was surprised but satisfied. He got the spirit to talk. He said:

– No my lady, I would never do that. What I want is to listen to your story, and if it possible see your smile.

 

– Why should I smile to you, when no one cares about me? Why do you want to know what happened to me? – asked the lady accusingly.

– I believe you have to smile at you, I know I can learn and give towards your story, so no other poor woman will make the same mistake. – answered Charles.

 

– They do this over and over again. Man or woman, never learning from histories, they don’t even realize sadness, poverty and don’t even believe in ghosts.

 

– But I do.

 

– Well than, I’ll tell you my story if you promise me something. After I finished it, you’ll go away and you’ll never ask me again other silly questions.

 

– I agree to your terms, tell me please, what happened to your life?

 

– I’ve got a beautiful life, and a happy childhood, until my father died. When he passed, I couldn’t forget him, I was sad, like now I am all the time. Two years after my father’s death I met a handsome gentleman, Warn. We fell in love at first sight. We laughed and cried together a lot, slowly I could forget my loss, and I felt happy again. After living together for ten years he came home from his job and told me: “You are so strange to me, who are you? What happened to my love? We are too different I can’t stay by your side anymore.” It came all of a sudden, he didn’t let me to answer or react. I wanted to know what happened to him, why he said that. I followed him like a spy, but I wish I never saw what I did. He was kissing a black haired woman, who came from a wealthier family. I could hear him telling her the same promises and compliments. I came to this place, I threw myself in front of a train… You’ve got what you’ve asked for. Now leave me alone.

 

Charles looked into the woman sad eyes, and he wanted to hug her, since he couldn’t done that, so he put a simple white flower to the ground and said:

– This is yours for the story, thank you. As I promised I’ll not ask you, just tell you one thing. You’re not alone, and you’re not a strange alien. I wanted to take care of you and help you, I wanted to save you. I believe you aren’t alone and not even strange or different. You’re just lonely and broken hearted, and you deserve some care and kindness, as all human does.

 

The woman turned her face back to the road. She didn’t answer, but started to mumble:

He can’t see me more,
can’t hurt me more.
But I can still have love,
I can have care.

I own the trust,
Mine is the flower
I’ll step down the road
it will end again.

The woman stepped off the edge of the roadway, a Peugeot wade through her soul. The apparition disappeared. Charles watched over the whole scene. He was able to saw the woman, she looked down and smiled to him one last time…
