Lately, I was answering the “questionnaire de Proust”. One of the questions was: “what’s the worst that you can think of?” And my answer was: never seeing my loved ones again. I’ve been the witness of a pure massacre: families were torn apart and one might wonder whose heart was it that thought about the crime.

When it comes to meeting people, the first person you have to meet is yourself. And we all know obsessed people never meet anybody. I don’t know if here on Earth we are not obsessed about space and love. And that might be why we have a hard time with space travels.

Make no mistake: 7 million years to land a man on the moon is nothing to be proud of. And that might be why the 20th century is so different from others: the population of the Earth went from 1 billion to 7 billion.

One might try to identify the obsessions that can be fruitful. So let’s start with the headline of that post: will I ever see my loved ones again?

Have Things Changed Without Notification?

I’ve lost a few loved ones during my life and I’m 38 years old. Those persons won’t come back. If you believe in reincarnation, maybe you could hang on a little. Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious concept that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical form or body after biological death. It is also called rebirth or transmigration and is a part of the Saṃsāra doctrine of cyclic existence.

In some circles, I am known as the Christ of Paris and Beirut. And now I’m going to share with you one of my odd experiences: one day I was with my father and I disappeared in the smoke. I took too much coke. I never did cocaine but, since I’m an empath and I worked in banking, I have felt the effects without taking the drug.

I disappeared for 5 seconds and I came back instantly. Now, what’s the obsession that the smoke experience can solve?

How Can We Make (Space) Travels Easy?

I know this thing will disturb a lot of people: trains, airplanes, boats and even cars. Don’t get me wrong: I love driving and listening to music. That’s why I will be very careful with what I will say. That experience about teleportation will disturb us but it seems we won’t have a choice.

A song mentions that physics is a dead end. And it might be true: when you think about love, there’s much more than just good looks. And it’s called chemistry. Now imagine I can spend my morning in Myanmar, the afternoon in Peru and the night in Paris or Beirut. Wouldn’t that really be a wonderful world?

Teleportation means traveling without being corrupted by the environment. That obsession brings us to the next question.

Does The Sky Show Signs Of Corruption?

It’s true sometimes we don’t know what we’re fighting for. Why can’t we live on a better planet without so many troubles digesting the information we get? It’s very clear: we shouldn’t be so sure about the love of God that’s here to stay. The universe is so big and God might have a lot of work. That’s why our planet gave us the victory: we are under the same sun.

Corruption means you gave up your good habits for some strange ones like drinking 30 coffees or smoking 4 packs a day. I never wanted to be Jesus because I knew he would die young. That’s why I want to be the last prophet: the one that will unite the Earth, our beautiful planet residing in the habitable zone of its star.

In some circles, they called the habitable zone the security zone. It means it’s the right distance where you won’t have to face extremes.

Should We Glorify Porno Or Funky Cops?

Some people made their vows: chastity, obedience and poverty. They say it brings them closer to God but what’s striking about our universe and Earth is that it’s the exact contrary: rich, diversified and full of surprises. When you think about justice and the reasonable doubt, you can’t help but try to find your position between two extremes.

I only know one Extreme good song and that might be why the world has gone astray. If we could find another Extreme song, then the world would be a better place. The song I know from Extreme is: “More Than Words” and it’s on the album Pornograffitti. The songs next to it are:

  • “Get the Funk Out” (featuring Pat Travers), meaning we shouldn’t hesitate to sweat a little bit to get rid of the bad toxins. In some people, sweating accompanied by emotions that are not of the order of fear, indicates that there is retention of emotional intensity. One might think that the intensity that cannot be manifested emotionally seeks an outlet that it finds in sweat,
  • “Money (In God We Trust)”, meaning we shouldn’t hesitate to define money very simply: it’s mean to exchange. The question about God might be debatable since some consider that there is no proof of the existence of God. The only proof we have as of today is that the planet is alive and the universe might be a result of a big, big mess 13 billion years ago.

It seems now very clear that we shouldn’t hesitate to work more in order to understand our universe completely and act accordingly. Then maybe we will meet our cousins again: we can talk about the Big Bang and where it got us.
