Now read this imaginary conversation I had with an imaginary stranger in the future :- (Hint: He was a stranger to me in the same way as I was to him.)
The year is 2025. The World is remarkably different from what it is today. Basically, all the problems are solved and no real problem seems to exist or even arise any more. Humanity has changed drastically and few of them in the know credit all the happenings to the existence of a shadow man, The One who prefers to pull all the strings from Behind-the-scenes. Legend has it that he has changed the world single affects through his extreme wealth. But nobody has really met him, they say. All they know is the person is extremely powerful and a living genius and has brought forth such radical positive development and created structures which have managed to sustain themselves through the use of Domino effects, Snowball effects, and many other God knows what cause-and-effect strategies, he did employ while at the same time manipulating corrupt politicians to do his bidding, for the good by using his endless influence, intelligence and engaging in various dynamics across all industries. Recently, a person from Florida did report his meeting with this 'shadow-man'. And all the transcript of the conversation has been duly recorded and reported by him as best as he could recall. Here it is :-
The Stranger: What do you do for a living ?
Me: I am a Businessman.
The Stranger: Oh That's Good !! What kind of Business are you in?
Me: I am in the Business of taking away people's pain and suffering as far as it is possible for me to do so.
The Stranger: That doesn't seem like much of a profitable idea.
Me: That may seem to be it. However that's not true, I do make extreme profits. Profits so extreme, that only a few in this world can ever attain !!
The Stranger: LOL ! If that is true, then you must be on the Forbes list of Billionaire. Who are you ? What is your name ?
Me: I am not, cause I have given away far more Billions than what your regular Billionaires can even earn. I have kept nothing with myself and yet my profits await in Heaven!
The Stranger: But There's no Heaven!
Me: Can there be any other Heaven other than that in knowing that I have lived a Perfect life and I am at Peace with my Creator ?
The Stranger: There's no Creator! Are you for real ? Now, you seem to me to be a crazy lunatic!
Me: If I am so then, why do you bother with this conversation ? Do you aspire to be one too ?
The Stranger: No I don't. Even when I believe you, I am really curious to know about what you have really gained by your so-called life-long altruism ?
Me: You see the world around you ? Isn't it beautiful ?
Me: It is so because I rearranged it to be so, by pulling the velvet poltical strings with my hand in the glove globally !!
Me: I used the seemingly unlimited and endless resources of my mind, body and soul and all the talents that my Creator gifted me with since the day I was born, to bring this dream into existence.
Me: And now that it is done, I am prepared to meet my Creator!
The Stranger: But you still seem young to me. I mean, still young for death to visit you!
Me: It May be so. But, I believe my purpose in life has been well served and I have done all that, that I needed to do over hear. On this planet, under the shining sun, I believe that my work is now complete and I have no regrets about anything. I am now finally, at peace with myself. Does this suffice your curiosity ?
The Stranger: Yeah, I think so. I have always strived for my own material gains, throughout my life and got nowhere near fulfilling my wild, never ending ambitions. I used dirty tactics and made this world a nasty place...A place, which you had taken upon yourself to clean up. What would I not trade to exchange places with you, you lucky Son of a bitch!
