The year is 2100. Humans and Aliens are living peacefully right here on Earth – Mexico, USA to be specific. Although, according to few recently released documentaries and articles, humans and aliens are already living peacefully, secretly, but for the sake of argument let’s just say that it’s far off in the wonderment.
The aliens and humans have signed a treaty to cooperate with each other, exchange technologies, and conduct inter-planetary experiments but never to fall in each other’s way of governing their respective planets.
Planet Earth as we have known and lived and survived, is covered in dense clouds. Antarctica has reduced to the size of Hawaii. No one living in the city has seen a single star for over a decade now. Special trips are planned where people go in the middle of ocean, just to view stars and show the younger generation that there is life beyond our existence.
No doubt the Homo sapiens have gone crazy, trying to dominate each other with power; hardly any food is grown on the fields, coz there aren’t any.
At the annual meeting conducted in the secret conference at Area 51, USA, where humans and aliens exchanged words, the aliens stood up to finally speak on a topic they have been willing to discuss for decades.
The green eyed alien, nicknamed as TV, short for The Viking led the charge.
“Humans, for all the years we have lived here, we have never discussed a word about how you should manage the resources made available by your own planet. But seeing all that has been going on around, we feel we should advice you without intervening in any way in your future course of action“
*After presenting few facts with graphic illustrations*
“Humans are trying for survival of the fittest whereas they should be learning to co-exist. Humans have invested trillions of dollars in manufacturing and procuring weapons of mass destruction, rather if they used even 10% of it then none of the fellow humans would be deprived of the basic necessities. They are always on the look-out for capturing each other’s land, devouring each other’s culture, tearing away forests – your only source of oxygen – one of the key to your survival.
Even in the smallest of the trivial matters humans declare war, instead of helping a fellow human in trouble all they do is make and share videos. I request you highly intelligent humans to ask yourself a simple question before executing anything – Whatever be the outcome of this, will it help mother Earth in any form or will it harm her?”
After much pondering and discussion amongst the army chiefs and other agents, the naval army chief was chosen to reply.
“What you have pointed out is precise and thought provoking. We humans have definitely not been grateful for the gifts given by mother Earth. Truth be told, we are centuries late in restoring the global balance; some of us are definitely marching in that direction but the ratio of such people compared to entire human race is ridiculously negligible.
However, not all of us have the same kind of mindset; the anti-social elements present amongst us pose a greater threat in restoring the global balance. We have tried exterminating these kinds of people but it only aids in increase of their number. Can you care to venture a solution for such humans?”
After a brief moment, the alien replied
“Once you identify an anti-social human, tag that human with a specific device we will provide you with. Using the device we will elevate that human to 20ft above the ground and will make them stay fixed, afloat in the air. Humans will think he has some kind of superpower while the anti-social human itself will have no clue how it is happening. Also we will make sure no human can click a picture or make video of the floating anti-social human”.
After careful investigation of the device, it was secretly deployed in all nations. Millions of people in every nation were just staying afloat. Nobody understood why or how was it happening. It drove humans crazy that they couldn’t click pictures or videos of the strange phenomenon. News media had the epic news but there was no proof available.
The time period of staying afloat was 7 days, after which the ‘anti-social humans’ were gradually floated down on land. Even prime ministers and presidents of certain nation were in this list.
The trend continued for over a period of two months within which it was slowly evident amongst the masses that ‘anyone who is a criminal in the eyes of USA will be floating in air for 7 days’. The number of people staying afloat reduced each weak, although no one could give any conclusive answers about how such a mass action was being executed.
The aliens soon figured out that the ones being tagged to afloat are those whom USA considers threat for them; so without any prior notice they shut down the device, claiming it as malfunction due to overloading.
Simultaneously, one person present in the secret conference fled away from USA and revealed to media the whole operation and reason behind the weird phenomenon. Many leaders of the world turned up against USA and a war was declared.
Did aliens know such an occurrence would take place and humans will eventually go for war?
Were aliens actually trying to help but our inner animal instinct to stay as the dominant one led us down?
Whatever be the answer, I believe it’s time to start restoring the balance so that our future generations can see stars from their home.
It’s time to join hands in peace with one another and lay off the weapons.
It’s time to give back nature what it deserves rather than crapping it all over.
It’s time to act civilised and be humans.
