Sad, eerie world we never saw coming
CINEMAS house the ghosts of movies that are continuously running from midnight to morning. Showing to a house-full audience of virtual online viewers, spooky films like Phantom of the Opera, Dracula and Frankenstein.
There is no human operator in the projection room yet the machines run endlessly. The show must go on.
Organ music hauntingly pervades the air in the foyer during interval. Popcorn machines churn buttery, golden and white puffs endlessly to invisible customers. The toilets have a queue of exoskeletons waiting their turn. There is no sign of an usher or a manager. But things move in an orderly manner, except some who rush after delays in the toilet.
The curtains at the door close automatically after interval. Nobody leaves the theatre at the end of the show. Shows are continuous. There is a change of movies every Friday but the theme of the movies remain. Old silent movies using live music in a virtual orchestra pit come alive some weeks. Familiar faces of actors like fabled Lon Chaney appear again and again, in sound and silent versions of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Phantom of the Opera...
Children of virtual audience wanting to visit the toilet amid a show insist on parents accompanying them, especially while watching virtual Jack Nicholson encountering his own terrifying ghosts in the corridors of The Shining Hotel.
Such is a sample of the sad state of a life we all took as unchangeable and divinely designed by heaven.
The same melancholy scenes are most probably enacted on the silent floors of factories that once did not permit staff without earmuffs. Massive machinery continue working without movement, monitored by operators from the Phantom Zone, producing nothing for nobody. Architects and construction engineers sit at the grave, the sites of what were intended for giant skyscrapers, hands in prayer, eyes towards the sky...
Millions of families at home, destitute, waiting for manna from somewhere.
Super aliens appointed by upstairs, adorning strange protective gear continue their heroic work in medical laboratories, working in a nether world, like zombies day and night to try to return some humans, safely, back to what was termed Earth.
The majority of this real world – the animals in human form and black, brown or white – limp around, dazed, confused. Unconscious of any new reality. For them, like always before, this is just another one. world acknowledged the sacred day and location of Arafat in Saudi Arabia. The plain of Arafat was the location where the Creator allowed Adam and Eve to meet after they were ejected from Heaven and left to wander the earth. It is where pilgrims have their sins forgiven. It is where Muhammad gave his last sermon. Arafat represents a sacred site of divine love.
Those who look beyond ethnicity, culture and dogma etc can experience divine love. The Creator is merciful and compassionate and does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, culture and dogma.
The Creator created humans in a natural state of goodness. We are not born with anger and hate.
We need to see each other through heaven’s eyes to understand our true purpose. In the beginning as in the end, love matters. Human history consistently rejects hatred and celebrates tales of love.
