Hello, world. Literally, WORLD!
Today, on April 13th, 2023, we are proud to announce the official proclamation of the completion of the reunification of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea. The peninsular will now be officially called Joseon, or Korea. Parties are happening all across the world as the international community has together achieved the de-nuclearization of North Korea. That’s one fewer country, and a few more to go to diminish the threat of nuclear catastrophe. Once the whole world is free of nuclear weapons, new possibilities for world cooperation open up. Re-adjusting the budget to fuel space travel instead of developing nuclear warfare, we see a brighter, spacier future ahead.
Today, on April 13th, 2023, 95% of the world has been destroyed by nuclear warfare. Thus, it is not safe to walk out there without the necessary equipment. This war, some calling it “The Last World War” , has resulted in over 5 billion casualties, with 1 billion estimated to be hiding in fallout shelters. The only place on earth untouched by the horrors of war is Africa, thus beginning a new age of humanity. Our colonies in Mars and Moon have halted due to the result of the war. I don’t know what to say… but good luck. May luck be ever on your side at this hour.
Either of the 2 scenarios is without a question possible. The choice is up to each world leader. It just takes one mind to change the fate of the planet, of humanity, of civilization. But this scenario involves the parties in a global scale. Think about you. What choices have you recently made that put you where you are right now? Think back and imagine the possibilities that may have occurred had you taken a different approach. Doing this exercise has been an eye opener for me. You will be wiser and more intelligent.
“Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.”
― Haruki Murakami
They say the past is for the weak, for the depressed, for the poor, so they suggest to live in the present and forget about everything.
Well, I think that’s a bad advice.
Forget what ‘they’ say; to get wiser and stronger, we ought to take a step back from reality and examine our positions in life and successfully discover the cause and the effect, and what solutions could be devised to steer ourselves to the direction we want to head into.
The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.
– Jean Jacques Rousseau
Will Korea re-unite? No one knows for sure, but in case of war, I know I will at least die knowing I’ve done all what I’ve wanted to do.
Time is ticking. Past enlarges, future shrinks. Present remains for you to grab and squeeze the opportunities out.
