Action and reaction….

“Get up! Get up!” Hipeer heard a voice in his mind. It was a very nice morning and he really didn’t have the time for more sleep. “O.K. , O.K.” He thought. “I’m up already! I know, I know,  I have a lot of things to do today. The most important is the “Action and Reaction” conference. ” I need to do a presentation which includes the reports from the twenty three Gods convention.” He replied to himself quite loudly. After his breakfast, he made a cup of coffee and he started to wonder what more could he do for the people who live on our Earth. He has a lot of criticism for people who never look further than the tip of their nose. According to him, they should see more than that as they have power to govern and they are giving nothing for their nation except suffering, they have money, power, everything, and they do nothing to help. Hipeer wanted to tell everyone about it and he knew which people he should address first. At this moment he was trying to find proper words to describe all of it. He went outside his house with his thoughts.

His property has a beautiful view of the mountains that were currently covered by snow. If you could have opportunity to join him, you would admit that Hipeer selected a very good place for his life. A quite warm wind gently blew in his face even though that was the winter.

“It will be a quite difficult period in front of me. How can I persuade people to not do what are they doing? This conference is a very good occasion to tell everyone about their group behaviour.”  He thought.

Hipeer had his speech already, he just was trying to find the best way to express his emotions. There is a lot of violence in the world at the moment and it isn’t possible to speak of all cases in such short time. So he knew that he  needed to speak about the most dangerous issue and for that he selected one person to address. He has everything to keep the peace around him but this person is blind and he doesn’t know what he is doing. You must agree with me that that’s what comes to mind when you think about Wladimir Putin, the president of the Russian Federation. Wladimir Putin
Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you do, you must agree with me that there is war in Europe. The one responsible person for that is Mr. Putin exactly. And I want to say again THIS IS THE WAR. This is not a local civil war, this is not a local conflict that you could ignore. This situation is comparable to the year 1939 when Adolf Hitler was dreaming about the Great Germany and now Mr Putin is dreaming about the Great Russia. Russia is spending fortune on military market, like Germany before – why? It’s because Russia wants to have a decisive voice in the World, like Germany before – why? In Russia standard of living people is pretty low, like in Germany before – you must think about it. Germany took part of land from another country, like Russia today – and its a fact!

Hello people from UN, can you hear me? It doesn’t matter what you think, it doesn’t matter what you want, if you still only watch and do nothing to prevent the 3rd world war it is very likely that you will indirectly cause the 3rd world war.

Action and reaction, remember that every time if you are trying to pull something the thing is giving you force that’s opposite to your power. Mr Putin, this is the time to stop your action. Who do you think you are? I’m sure you are now working against your home!

Religion, evil or necessity?

Hipeer went to his home after his meeting with Ladoger. His home was located not too far from a big chain of mountains and it had a beautiful view of it. Hipeer likes skiing very much but recently he hadn’t had the time to go do it. He took a seat at the front of his home and reminded himself of skiing.

“I must call Gregory, he invited me last time to go skiing.” He thought. Hipeer knew that Gregory is from Agadorie as well as Gregory knew about him. He got up from his chair and looking at the mountains, he went closer to the barrier of his terrace. The breeze gently caressed his face. He just wanted to go and read his book when  the phone rang. Insisting bell didn’t allow him to defy it so he picked up the phone and before he said anything he heard a very nervous voice of his friend.
“I was thinking that I know what is the worst thing on this planet but I was wrong. The worst things are religions, do you know?” And he right away asked Hipeer.
“Do you know what a religion is?”
“Of course I do, it’s the kind of faith.” Answered Hipeer.
“You are wrong, you are very wrong my friend. Religions are the tools to start the wars. I spoke about it with a lot of people but nobody is listening to me. I need, I have to and I must yell about it but I see my voice is soundless.” His voice became very silent.
“Calm down my friend, calm down! Can you say something more about what is going on?” Hipeer said.
“Oh yes, with pleasure! With pleasure. But do you have the time to listen to me?” Asked Gleaser, one of young newcomers from Agadorie planet.
“No problem at all, all time in service as you know.” Answered Hipeer and reminded himself of his last meeting with Ladoger, but said nothing and become all ears.ReligionWar“People around the world need to believe. I understand it and there is nothing wrong with that. Everyone needs to have faith. We as well believe that everything what we are doing we are doing well. For many people religion is an equivalent and excuse for everything. They believe that all what is going up around one’s is the God’s wishes. So as you can see religion is quite important for one when one’s has the inability to exist with faith inside one’s body as we can. When exactly religion was created nobody knows. It is very likely that religion has been in use since people started live closer together. I started my examination of religions from ancient religions to present day. And I have to say that all that they were invented for were tools for the war. Nothing less, nothing more. In the human history we have a lot of examples of it. Starting from Roman history through Dark Ages and finished nowadays. During history were many Crusades during which Christians had a series of military campaigns against the Muslims of the Middle East after the time where the Muslims had captured Jerusalem. But both followers of religions forget about one very important thing. Jerusalem is a very important place for Christians as well for Muslim people. I can’t understand why they didn’t and still don’t have respect for each other.”

At that moment there was silence. Hipeer was wondering about what he has heard. And Gleaser was waiting for Hipeer’s response.

“Religious wars are basically people killing each other over who has better imaginary friend.”

Do you want to discuss this chapter? Sure you want! But what do you have to say? I’m very interested, really. Good luck mankind!

Religion, evil or necessity?

The Earth – planet of fear…

fearTwo social scientists living in Agadorie, Ladoger and Hipeer decided to describe and publish their observations about life on other planets. Because the Earth is closest to their heart, they began their research was from this planet. Together they spent on Earth over ten years gathering information on topics of interest to them.

Ladoger was very interested in the reactions of people for various external factors affecting of human behavior. He was interested in what the reaction of different colours triggers such that the reaction cause different sound. What is received nicely and what causes dislike? What people like to do and what they are hurt the most? From what are most proud of and what they are wanting to forget? What put them in amazement, and what situations are problematic for people? Handsome, tall Ladoger very quickly was found the person in conversation. No one was able to resist his charms. In addition, when his go into the discussion it was clear in his face a very deep interest in what united him with the caller. Sometimes the conversation concerned the unpleasant things. In these moments, worried face Ladeger and provoked the sincere beliefs.

Whereas Hipeer was the most interested in the fears of people. He observed that mankind on Earth live in permanent fear. For Hipeer common fear in a society which he met on Earth did not allow him of circumvention this issue and didn’t think too long he pick up a study of this phenomenon. On Agadorie fear almost non-existent. Widespread globalization, massive support in almost every sphere of life including the joint development program and a system of incentives for the active life does not cause the Agadorie feelings of fear. So he decided to deepen their knowledge of the factors that necessitate information invoking fear? Why do people scare each other without any reason? Hipper as a grey-headed man were arousing much confidence in his own person. He had no difficulty with making new friends, and, like Ladeger could listen. There is not a common feature between humans. Probably for this and his interlocutors were sincere in their statements when they was talking to Hipeer.

Because both researchers were interested in the related topic, very often met and exchanged their observations. On meeting took a liking to a small town on the east coast of Italy. They had a habit of sitting in the cosy cafe with a view of the sea. They could enjoy spending out there for hours on discussions about their observations. A known waiter long ago recognized the habits of both men and serviced them so well that sometimes Hipeer and Ladoger thought that he is reading them in their minds.

“I’ve always wondered how people can live in perpetual fear?” Asked Hipeer his friend Ladoger one day.

“To tell the truth I’ve no idea how they cope with that my friend.” Hipeer added deep in thought.

“What do you exactly have in mind while asking that?” Answered Ladoger with another question.

“Take a look. I have conducted my observations on so many residents of this globe that I doubt this is a single case. I find this as much interesting and puzzling as terrifying.” Started Hipeer, after a minute of thinking he added. “People on Earth live in constant fear, from the moment they are born to the moment of their death. This much I have seen and observed, but I still cannot understand one thing. How can they live in such conditions?”

“Indeed this is not the most optimistic way of living I admit.” Agreed Ladoger and quickly added out of curiosity. “As I am a bit out of your field of research can you add something more to your statement? Share your observations with me?”

“Yes of course, it will be my pleasure.” Hipeer began and after gathering his thoughts continued.

“It is most probable that everything I observed on today’s Earth had its beginning at the moment when the life on that planet has developed. Not having much of a choice, all of the creatures living here had to fight for survival. It applied to animals of all kinds as well as prehistoric humans. Even then, from the dawn of time, fear was a constant companion. They feared not having enough food, they feared being eaten by a bigger animal, basically they feared losing their lives. They went to sleep with fear that they will be attacted at night by some animal. They woke up with fear that they will not find any food throughout the day. All this fear stayed in their blood in the present days. But let’s leave the prehistoric men alone for now I know that you are more interested in the present times.”

He made a quick break and taking a sip of his coffee he couldn’t not ask.

“I have noticed that coffee is more to my tastes than ever these days, maybe it’s some new blend we didn’t know about?”

“I have noticed that as well, my friend, but I thought that it was only me and didn’t want to bother you with something so trivial.” Answered Ladoger with a wave of his hand.

“Well, anyway I am glad you noticed that as well, I was a bit worried that my sense of taste is beginning to change at my old age.” Laughed Hipeer and after another sip of his drink continued his earlier topic.

“Yes, let’s take a look at the modern society. From the moment of birth to their death people live deep in fear, that we know, I think that many of them have grown accustomed to this fear so much that they don’t even notice that fact. Let’s take a man. An ordinary man, he haven’t been born yet and a priest in his mothers local church is threatening her that if she won’t marry she will burn in hell for her sins along her unborn child. Such things must have a negative influence on the poor fetus. Let’s fast forward a bit. Parents threaten their children from the moment it starts to walk and talk. For example “You won’t get anything unless you eat this dish!” But they did not check if it’s tasty for their child. When a child is a bit older then a fear of bodily punishment is at hand. It’s way too often that mothers and fathers use a trouser belt to punish their children! Forget the households for a minute, schools aren’t good places at all either. Teachers instead of teaching, which is their job title, make children learn all by themselves threatening them with failing grades or even being expelled from school!”

At that moment Ladoger couldn’t sit quietly any longer and exclaimed with great confusion lined with anger. “How people can live like that!?” He thought.

“I can’t believe that! Are you sure about all that? This sounds like some method of torture not a way of life! B-but I am sure that when humans hit adulthood the fear stops, right?”  He asked a bit hopefully.

“The fear stops? Ha! I’m sorry to disappoint you old friend but when humans reach adulthood, then the real fear begins. They fear being jobless, they fear not being able to afford those couple of needed things, or even that a war can break out!”

At that moment Hipeer remembered about his coffee. He took a couple of sips, and while enjoying the taste looked at his friend waiter and returning his gaze to Ladoger continued his statement.

“Look at our waiter. You may think he is not afraid but I see that he is afraid, and very afraid he is. No one is there to reward him for his good work. Every boss thinks that if he works correctly, that well, it’s supposed to be like that! But try and even break something. You will be noticed in seconds. And of course punished. How it is possible to normally work in such conditions?” Finished Hipeer with a question.

“You are right Hipeer, look at Agadorie. At home we have a very well developed system of rewards and praise. That’s how you gain your employee satisfaction from his job. If something wasn’t finished according to plan or even broken in the process the employee responsible is being accordingly signed up for additional training, to make sure he will not make the same mistakes again. No one is being punished for their mistakes because everyone knows we are not machines and that we can make mistakes. And our system works…. Very well!” Answered Ladoger.

Hipeer was more than proud of his work. To definitely finish his statement he started to count.

“Parents scare children and children scare parents. Teachers threaten pupils. Priests threaten parents, pupils and teachers. Offices scare people with high penalties. The Justice system scare people to jail or even with the death penalty. Everyone threatens everyone. Fear is omnipresent.”

Hipeer was really proud of his work, he knew that all that he presented was very interesting for Ladoger. But he was more proud of himself knowing of the possible praise his work is going to get back home.

The system on Agadorie of praise and rewards has been present for many generations. It basically consists of promoting people who are honoured by society for their work, be it scientific or in any other field. The recognition of the society is the most valuable reward anyone can dream of. The level of recognition is determined by granting suitable “points of regard”. Those who are most regarded are scientists, who are working towards increasing the general knowledge of the society. Almost as high esteemed are artists, who by their works are influencing the intellectual development of the society.
