I am writing after 3 months, and credit goes to new Thor series movie trailer, which portrays darkness rising, and the hero is supposed to fight with it. I random thought popped out of my mind, “Why darkness is supposed to be evil or bad, or why evil or dark things portrayed as dark things? Why not any other color?”.
 
There are some obvious reasons like as a part of human evolution, humans were heavily dependent on light for their survival as darkness was the dwelling of hunting animals. Darkness was comprehended with lack of knowledge, as since from the earlier times humans couldn’t see much into dark, unlike many other animals. But this reason couldn’t be correct today, thanks to infra red night vision cameras. So, darkness has always been a challenge to evolution of human beings, and hence surviving the dark was supposed to be a heroic thing. 
 
This natural apprehension about dark has caused the penetration of darkness into social customs and mysticism. Subsequently the idea gods was developed as powers who save humans from darkness, hence they had to be opposite of darkness, or bright. But this was indeed a dangerous idea.
 
If we look at the anthropological evolution of humans, we can find out that majority of humans are dark skinned. So, by creating god versions synonymous to brightness , we are developing an idea of superiority of whites over darks.Why? Because you wouldn’t accept a black person as a god, who is supposed to fight darkness, or a black skinned god would never fit in the group of gods who are basically white skinned and having bright aura. Hence this idea of treating darkness as a basis of creating god figures is absurd. 
 
Solution? The solution lies not very far away but in ancient Hindu scriptures where one could find first ( and may be only) example of black god figures. Example- Krishna (which itself means darkness), Arjun-  The Mahabharata heroic figure who was described as having similar looks as Krishna, also was son of thunder god- Indra, hence was described dark, Kali- the godess of warrior clans is portrayed dark. Looking deeply into the reasons of existence of such god figures, one might easily conclude that in Hinduism, darkness is not even treated as evil, but rather a part of universe like any other force, and sometimes as the very character of universe itself. This neutrality towards darkness is the key to ideal representation of human evolution in evolution  of god figures. And hence, I thought to disapprove the entire idea of darkness as evil, or bad. A brighter thing could equally be evil as a dark thing may be. And a dark thing could be equally divine and pure as any bright thing is. The bottom line is, we are no more cavemen scared of darkness!

It was Wednesday and I bunked my classes, a regular practice. After having breakfast I went to toilet to feel lighter and saw that one of my friends of electrical engg also bunked the classes. Being free, I entered into the room with clear mood of some discussion. He was reading the ‘speaking tree’ in the times of India. “Don’t worry! God is listening to you and will answer soon” I said with a witty smile like I was teasing him to read such article. “God doesn’t listen and doesn’t answer buddy. It’s a wrong set of mind, what you just said”
He answered with a smile and soft tone. The stage was all set for the great god discussion and we continued in the following way….

Me: why did u said that, obviously he listens.

He: no, no! That’s not true. Its like god has created the universe and he doesn’t interfere in the working of universe. It is just the universe which is itself doing what is happening to him.

Me: what?

He: see it as a function, u write a function and then relax. Now you can’t change the output of that function as it is set. Now if someone uses that function by inserting a value into that, a fixed output is going to come and you can’t change that output, because if you do, you are changing the function itself that you don’t want. Now that function is similar to our universe and god has already created it. Now he can’t change the output of this universe, it solely depends on us. The kind values we insert in universe would give us that kind of output.

Me: no man! Don’t define god someone like us. May be he is so capable that is can write a function as well alter its output if he wants. He created us and he wouldn’t allow things just to happen with us.

He: no. even if he is capable of altering the output of the universe, he wouldn’t do that. He wouldn’t break the laws made by him. He made the laws of physics and mathematics, gravity, electromagnetism, etc. He made these laws so that we follow them but if he breaks these laws that would excite us also to break these laws and that he doesn’t want. So he won’t break his laws. And without breaking his laws he cannot alter the output of this universe.

Me: well might be true! But I think he is so capable that he can alter the output and we wouldn’t be able to figure that out. He can change the output so beautifully that we even can’t see it. You might have heard about luck? That is the thing. It is the way of god answering to our prayers. He enhances our chances of getting what we want if we pray to him and that thing comes in our life like something ordinary, so that we wouldn’t be able to figure out that he has altered the output of the universe. That is luck my brother. Have you heard about people who survive deadly accidents, who touch stones to turn them into gold, who are lucky in the way they wanted?

He: you might be right. Might be possible that this small human brain wouldn’t figure out his games. And that is what we call Maya.
But you know what he has done a huge mistake.

Me: what kind of mistake?

He: he fed us with the capability of learning, and one day the humans will learn to alter the law made by him, we have already defied gravity to some extent. One day humans will learn to control the nature completely and that day they will challenge the god. That day we would have all the data about the universe and large superpower full computers which will calculate all the possibilities related to those data about universe, and at that day we would know about the output of universe even before inserting the inputs and that way we will control the output of universe by feeding only favorable input. That day man will control the universe not god. Man is god’s biggest mistake, and one day he will realize this when man will challenge him. What do you think will happen then?

Me: simple! God will change some of the key features and laws of the universe and man will spent another millions of million year to know those feature and laws and million years to learn how to control them. Till then god will relax and smile at us. Then he will give us more puzzles to solve and then more and then more.

ENCOURAGEMENT STATEMENT 

A: man! U should beware of the evil spirits; they can do what they want to us.
B: u fool! Why to fear something which is only a spirit, we are spirit plus body, aren’t we more powerful than them

Date:-12/12/8000

we are heading to a planet named earth which is now all ruined, we don’t know what the reasons were. Earth looks bright brownish on the centre with white patches here and there and on the poles. This might be the ice. The samples our scientists taken from earth show a huge amount of radioactiveness. Probabily this planet died out of some radioactive eruption on large scale. Any ways we will be finding out what kind of life earth had.

Date:-15/12/8000

Three days after landing on this planet, we have some solid evidences that this land had supported life with enormous potential and skills. We have got a scribed thin paper written something over there. When our scientist translated that language, it said “The God hammered the opponents with his mighty fire power. He was firing dragons out of his stick”. This means that this place was actually were the god incarnated, and he showed people his power in open. This disapprove our old theory that there is no god. They used to call him “Sachin”.

Date:-17/12/8000

Further studies show that creatures here were highly complex in terms of relationships. they had here a complex system called country and they even used to fight each other based on that geographical division. Our scientists are digging the proofs to find out why they used to do so? There is no explaination to such a behaviour for such an  evolved species. And i am quite amazed to think that if that was the situation here, why didn’t Sachin do anything?

Date:-18/12/8000

We today found some mysterious proofs about these creatures. They used to have faith in some mysterious force, to which they prayed. Sometimes they called him Allah, sometimes Jesus, sometimes Budhha,sometimes Ram, sometimes mother Mary. There were lot of  other names also to which they used to refer it, but nowhere in the proofs we found something where they would call this force ‘Sachin’. I don’t know why??…was that paper proof fake??..or might be the case that Sachin was above this force??

Date:-19/12/8000

After we have found their gods, now we have found their demons. In the extreme eastern part of this planet, they would call a demon..China. As we move a bit west, they would call the demon by the name of America or Bush. When we move more to west, they would call this demon Taliban or Osama. By the description of demon on these parts of the planet, our scientists are sure that they were refering to one single man, but based on geographical location they would call him a China, or Bush , or Osama.In the place where we landed, we also found some proofs where people used to call him a McGrath or Malinga, troubling god Sachin, although the description of these demons was entirely different from those mentioned earlier.

Date 21/12/8000

These people used to have a very powerfull weapom called inflation. All of them were scared of it. Governments used to execute people using that weapon. If we can find the technology to create that weapon, we might control more planets using it. Our search to find inflation is on.

Date 22/12/8000

We have ample of proofs now which show that this was a female dominated creature. The female was the reason to most of the fights. We have found large fossils of males around female fossils, showing their social power. What a sissy creature these were?

Date 23/12/8000

Nowhere on the earth, we have found inflation. But then we have found some blueprints of other weapons that these creatures used to have. We have found a cylendrical solid which the female used against male, they used to call it a ‘Belan’. Then we have blueprints of weapon called ‘Vote’, our scientists are trying to decode its blueprint, which is though very tough. Then we have something called a ‘cigeratte’. Intially it seems waste but later we found that it can kill an organic cell in few moments, pretty powerfull weapon. But then , we have some papers which say about a weapon , deadliest of all, it was called Marriage. We need to discover it.

Date:-25/12/8000

We have found here samples of something called Beer. These creatures used to drink it a lot irrespective of their geographical location. There are evidences that show huge collection fossils around places where we found samples of beer. That means beer used to unite these creatures in some way. May be it was a very high energy drink, we emits positive rays to influence the mind of nearby creature, to synchronise his mind with the others. It is found that they could see moon and stars far far away, even in day, after drinking beer.Wonderfull technology, need to find how beer worked exactly and how to form it?

a letter to god.

dear god,

first of all thank you for creating me, i think u had a tough time bearing me in the heavens, so u sent me here , so u sent me here, on earth, and that though in a time when rivers are smelling bad, when the air is filled with smoke, when the bacterias and viruses are more stronger than before, when nations are volatile,when humanity is confined to speeches only, when earth is dancing wild wearing storms and droughts both,when man is slowly becoming more like an animal,when kids are grown on powdered milk, when olds die at the age of 50-60, when youngs are drunk and drugged,when animals are are thrown out of jungles, when fishes are thrown out of sea,when the sun glows to burn the earth and when seeing all these people say “all is well”.

But i believe this is a part of your teachings, those who learn their lessons survive and those who don’t are perished.

There are men who are saying that god doesnot exist, but i know they pray to you when they are alone, asking you for help, sometimes even trying to bribe you. And for men who forget your presence, you check them by sending devils, devils in form of diseases, disasters,distress. anyways, by the end of their lives, they all know where they are going, accepting your presence.

There are many who created devils using your tools of science and mathematics. For them , i know u have made a special cell in hell.

But there are few of those who are trying to understand what u have created billions of years ago, saying that one day they will solve this puzzle of your creation in what they say a grand unification theory. however when asked to judge the nature of irrational numbers or complex numbers, they all just make funny faces like a 5 years old.

Anyways now, that u have sent me here, please do something to correct the current situaton here. i know u are angry for we have not kept the your gift the way u gave us, but on behalf of entire human race and also those who are inhuman, i say sorry! i know u will not do something overnight or visible. But atleast provide these newly born souls the courage to listen their soul’s voice, courage to act against the current systems,  courage to revert the changes that made your gift untidy, and last but not the least, courage to be a human.

with respect and love,

A part of your soul.
