When the three-pronged purple laser beam shot in the consciousnesses of Rev. Duke Chauncey, Reginald Funkhouse, and I, it showed us the future. The future as most of us conceptualize it, which of course is a false understanding of its true texture. The laser divulged to us the true nature of time; that all time is simultaneous. The conventional concept of “linear time”, is just another product of the human species’ attempt to understand a universe beyond our current abilities of comprehension. In fact, most people live thier lives at different points in time then the people around them. While you live your live and interact with others, keep in mind that they have either already lived that moment or have yet to live it at all.
But I digress, the laser showed us the future, the past, and other versions of our present. It was an awe inspiring journey, from which there was one caveat; most knowledge and information attained during the vision would leave our mind’s memory at a rapid pace. We all intuitively knew this. After experiencing this vision which seemed to last for days, we returned to where we had been. As we attempted to recall the vision, like attempting to recall a dream, we struggled to piece together the details before they would be lost forever. The one event that seemed to stay with us all clearly, was the struggle of Earth’s last living being to stay alive.
While the being was mechanistic, its desperate attempt to stave off death was, oddly, humanistic-ally moving. Its sounds of confusion, weakness, and struggle seem to be the divine embodiment of the fate of all life. Life is the drug that keeps on giving, but some day we all get cut off. Come with us and hear the fate that will someday be yours and mine.
