Who will rule the world?

Ewan ko. Gusto ko lang maglagay ng unusual title. Pero kung iisipin mo, medyo may sense naman yung question. At least sa akin.
The word ‘world’ could mean several things. My own world. Your own world. This culture’s world. The world we are living right now. The world that we construe. Kung lahat tayo nakikita lang natin kung ano ang gusto natin, then it follows that we have at least six billion individual worlds, all perceived differently by six billion people.
Several of those worlds could end. They could end in death. Or one’s own little world could end, and we change that world, that is, our perception of the world. After all, the reality will not adapt to you, you will adapt to it (naalala ko lang yung nabasa ko kay Michio Kaku sa book niyang Hyperspace – "Nature doesn’t care about common sense" wala lang). Such could happen for example, if you encountered a life-altering event. Sabi nga nila, gumuho ang mundo mo.
At ito ang isa sa mga themes ng blog na ito. World of Ruins. Iba’t ibang mundo. Lahat gumuguho. Kahit gaano pa siya katagal at katatag, guguho rin siya.
Kaya kapag gumuguho ang mundo natin, anong gagawin natin? Some chose to end all of their suffering by hurling themselves from the top of a skyscraper to the ground and to their deaths. Medyo mahirap nga kung guguho ang mundo mo, pero sabi ng ni Zafra, what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger, and that’s why if you survive the ruins, you will be stronger, so that you can build a new world from the ruins of the old.
So ano ba itong pinagsasabi ko? Am I making sense?
Kailangan bang maintindihan mo ang sinasabi ko? Naintindihan ko naman ito, at walang pumipilit sa iyo na intindihin ito.
Maraming tao ang nag-aakalang naiintindihan nila ang iba. How can you really someone if you could only see the world through your own eyes? Should you think of eye transplants? Sadly, kaya siya physically as long as you have the money, but few could do it symbolically.
Wala na akong maisip ilagay dito. Sa susunod na lang. Until next time.
