Age of Collapse / Age of Communication

We open our eyes
and with our souls
we inhale the void
beyond this planar body

Never to exhale

Somewhere, in the great nothing
there is something;
a deserted isle of despair;
where everything distorts

The echoes of silence
ring across the barren plains
and speaks for everyone else
driving everything so desperately apart

whatever we do
never breaks through

The barriers of our thoughts,
the carriers of our fear,
that worries our minds,
the wearier we become

The ache that voilently possesses
the free mind;
it injects the blood with a hunger
which pulls us further away from all connections

Like statues we transport
ourselves to the industry
baffled by our own
apathetic mirrored selves

Restlessly floating in that void
right in front of our faces,
yet still so inhumanly far away,
just inhaling time

Never to exhale

Our vessels move forward
but our spirits remain still
yet our minds are far from empty
for we hide therein

We keep our faces static;
dissasociated; locked and cold
distantiate from the warmth
of all other forms of life

Breathe as little as only dying breed does
we speak only to our thoughts
and gently sweep ourselves away;
hover into the great black hole

With our crowns glowing high above our heads
we acknowledge the age of collapse
then fall back into the descending line
and retreat further into hibernation


Laughing At Humans, Part III: The Completion of The Cycle

Posted in Writings with tags , , , , on September 5, 2010 by Eyeless

It has been mentioned that Evolution was surprised by the sudden stop in the progressing of humanity. But perhaps Evolution was not surprised, for it is true that all that is progressing and alive, is Evolution. Perhaps It just realized the mistake it had made with the human ape, or maybe It already knew the complete cycle that an advancing species would progress through. A beginning with an idea and a lot of potential; potential being used to the fullest; full progression until every threat is neutralized; then comes the realisation of oneself having played the role as the biggest threat all along, which sooner or later would lead to self destruction.
Yes; for as already stated, Evolution had brought similar species to life before. They had all completed the cycle. Perhaps it was not Evolution itself that strived for control, but the human ape all along. They seized the moments of opportunity whenever they came and took control over them, to secure the well-being of the species. They were the ones that tried to control nature itself; they built great and impressive gardens, but would not allow anything in the garden could grow freely without permission; they killed anything living that did not obey their rules; everything that trespassed on their grounds; everything that stole from their property. Now they were growing without permission; disobeying the rules; trespassing on Earth; stealing from the property of all. It was time for the human species to complete it’s cycle.

Laughing At Humans, Part II: The Progression and Dividing of Groups

The ape-men then progressed for some additional thousands of years, until they had evolved into homo sapiens, when they suddenly paused.

Evolution was flabbergasted for just a moment. The humans had no other rivals left. The other apes were now so primitive in comparison that any threat against humanity was futile; not even worth being bothered by. The humans had, with much help from their own inventions, more or less taken over the world. Many other species had done so previously in Earth’s younger days, but none of them were as fully adapted or progressing as the humans.

The only rival now was humanity itself, and humans had divided into groups. Well, they had done so previously in history, and just like now, conflicts would bloom whenever these divided groups would meet. However, in these modern days, their inventions were far more advanced, and great wars were fought when in earlier years simple brawls had taken place.

But the dividing of humanity was far greater and far more complex than two battling sides. It began with a smaller group, surviving in a somewhat harsh world. The need to stick together was important. This group consisted of a handful of families, and each family consisted of a handful of individuals. As the groups grew, and more individuals came to birth, the shorter could these groups stay on each place as each individual meant another mouth to feed.

At some point it would become obvious that the group was to big for one leader to handle, for at some point there must be someone else that rises against this leader, and the strain upon the group would be too great when too many strive for leadership. Those that failed to take over the throne would build their own groups and go their own way. That group would follow the same process, and uncountable groups would build.

As a whole, all these groups would be seen as one; but as already stated, the conflict was great. Each group had it’s conflict in each of the three layers: the whole, the family, the individual. Every newborn meant another conflict was on it’s rise.

Humanity’s vast population in later days created a thought of the self as the only one to trust. Perhaps a brother or a sister or any other member of the family were trusted, but in a world when everyone had to uphold their individuality and separation from the mass; where  sister slay brother without remorse and vice versa, one could never be safe. Better keep a gun inside the jacket. Better to be safe than sorry.

Laughing At Humans, Part I: The Inevitable Beginning

Evolution once pondered the thought of putting the idea of control over life into some species. The most fitting seemed the ape-men. They had already hands with fingers, and feet with toes. These were great at manipulating objects, and detailed ones at that. Therefore, it also seemed this species had the upper hand among other animals; for the others did not feature hands or feet alike that could manipulate with such precision. The apes could grip with their hands; grip stones and branches which could be tossed at hostile animals or used as tools. As they no longer had any natural enemies, they could reproduce fast and well. But many apes meant many mouths to feed, and the apes would have to seek better places for food and resources.

In the search of such places, it was not uncommon for them to stumble upon other apes, some more primitive in ways. These “other” apes had already claimed the territories that held fresh water and fruits, but the smarter ape-men outnumbered them, perhaps tricked them in some way and killed them. They threw rocks, debris and anything else that was hard and blunt.

Evolution laughed. It had brought forth a species which oppressed other species which inhabited the lands that the ape-men desired. And as the other species avoided these apes, they came to grow. They adapted to wherever they were, and at the same time they kept evolving.
