“Why is this happening?”
“Why is that guy behaving like this?”
We are all asking questions rather than trying to solve our problems in our day.
People, animals, even the world itself is suffering. Many intellectual ones are trying to find a cure for things “they” see as real problems.
Looking today or future may not give us an answer. Maybe we should go back. Back in time, I offer you to search the clues of what made us like this. Brutal, carnivore, warrior, killer breed that makes itself and the world suffer.
While we are travelling back in time, stay close to me if you are not willing to be lost in time. Now, follow me!
Here we are in 2010’s as you can see, there is hunger, drought, wars, economic crisis and many lies. It’s clear that there are no answers here. Let’s start our journey back.
90’s and 80’s. Listen. Good music, bad politics and still economic dilemmas. War for oil. Killings for politics. Clearly, No. No answers again, just more problems growing.
70’s. Still war. And for what?
Let’s speed up back in time. What do we hear? Some good melodies but I can also hear screams.. War again? OH! Look at that! A gigantic atomic mushroom cloud over Nagasaki. Millions screamed and got silence in seconds. Look! Another one over Hiroshima. What a weapon! Killing millions with one bullet. We’d better stay here. Let’s keep going back.
Human race is in war again. World wars! Slaughter and so called bravery.
World is less crowded now, but there are screams everywhere. I hear steamboats and steam powered trains. Still some good music. But no answers yet.
Muskets and clangs of swords are together. We are almost at the edge of middle ages. Cannons on the ships and castles. Battles on deserts and seas. Conquerors are shiny but bloody. Still no answers to our problems. No light here..
Let’s keep travelling back. Stay close, these are dark times.
Why are these people fighting now? Oh, many meaningless reasons, hear it? For religion, while both sides worship the same god with different representatives. For a lady, who stole the heart of a leader. For a word that was taken as an insult. Thousands are dying in many different ways.
Crusades to take back some holy lands and Jihad to fight back and protect. Some small conquests again. What is religion anyway? We have almost left a millenium back but still wars and fights around us. I suggest you to speed up a bit. Let’s find the source of this religionists.
Here is the last one of the god’s chosens, a shepperd, in the middle of Arabian Desert. What is he saying? Be good. Do not kill. Do not lie. He says, these are the words of god. Sorry sir, they don’t understand. Let’s go back..
Oh, look! Here is another one, he is a shepperd too. Making miracles, turning water to wine. Cool. Let’s hear what this one is saying. Be good. Do not kill. Do not lie. He says, these are the words of god. Good message again, but they are nailing him to a cross and spearing him while hanged there. Seems no hope, people are still idiots here.
Let’s go more back in time to find… Wait, a white beard standing before his people, holding two tablets. 10 commandments from the god. What are they? Be good. Do not kill. Do not lie. He says, these are the words of god. And what is his people doing? Turning their back on him and worshipping to totems made of soil. Sadly he brakes the tablets and goes exile. Sorry sir, wait 2 more milleniums, tablets will be popular again.
We must follow our route back in timeline to find an answer. What was it? Oh. Yes, thank you. We were looking for the source of the problem to find the sollution. Slavery, to make gigantic architectual marvels. Pyramids and temples. Good art, no humanism. Sorry! We must keep going back faster. Seems no answers around here.
Who is that hairy guy with the sharpened rock in his hand? Seems a bit humpy, isn’t he? World is quieter. I hear no screams. Good. Wait. What is he and his companions doing? Attacking another tribe to gain water source. They have no weapons dude. Oh, primative man, you are bad!
I offer us to jump far more back in time. Agreed? Ok. Let’s go.
Here we are. See the only family there? Yes, we are still on Earth. Look at the boys over there. They are arguing on something. Oh no! Cain killed Abel. That was your brother! I’ll tell it to your father.
Where is your father? Oh, here you are. Sir, your son has just.. hey, WAIT!
DO NOT EAT THAT APPLE!
… Oh shit! Nothing will change!
