Happy Birthday To My Best Friend!

Besties

My little friend is crazy, She’s growing everyday

Beautiful like an African daisy, whether it was March or May

Energized, all over the place but never lazy, I’m proud to say

Sometimes I think she’s idiotic, but that’s youth half way

But what is a friend for you without being ironic, to laugh, to cry and to pray

I wish her days better than mine, and jealousy I put away!

Feeling Good – Michael Buble

Ever listened to this song over and over? if not, please do!

It’s not always a matter of who sings the song, but it’s a matter of the song’s content. Here my favorite performance happened to be for Michael Buble, he does it the way I like it.

The reason why I love this song is that through my life I’ve tasted freedom a few times now, and I’ve been lucky enough to have the chance to know what freedom is for me, because freedom is absolute happiness. Everyone has their own definition for it. Every time i listen to this song I do enjoy the feeling of freedom, and I know that i can sacrifice many things just to be like the river running free. Salute for those of you who got their freedom 🙂

Enjoy and share with your loved ones.

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms, Useless? Fired! “Episode 5”

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms
The Kingdom of All Kingdoms

So in  the infinite “industrial kingdoms” hundreds of millions of “citizens” worked and worked all the time, on a single shift or on a double shift. They worked day and night. They no longer had names or identities, they had numbers, they were digits, yes digits that’s all they were.  So when they got into work they had to sign in using their digits and sometimes finger prints, and when they left work or got a break they had to do the same, no one trusted nobody, if one forgot to sign in it was their problem, there was no way to prove that they worked that day or that night. No one considered anyone’s circumstances, situations or position. So if they came they came, they signed in and it was going to show later, and if they didn’t they had to double their working hours later, or they had no chance to take a rest, or they got paid less,which is again about digits!

Besides that no one addressed anyone as a person, no one asked someone how they were doing, or how they felt, or what was up! no one cared for no one. All that mattered was to do and get the job done. And what mattered at the end was results, and results were also digits. How much of this we made and how much of that we finished, and how much are are going to produce of this item, and how many missing items are there, what are we exporting and how much of it has been requested, and what are we importing, when and how many, what’s the cost? what’s the income? That was briefly what was happening in  the infinite “industrial kingdoms”

So what happened if one worker couldn’t work anymore, if they lost some body parts while working, which happened frequently in places like factories and mines, some of these “citizens” lost some limbs? And what about those who ended up with serious sicknesses like cancers, especially those who worked in radiated environment? What happened to those who faced smaller problems like breaking bones or got seriously injured but by time they maybe had a chance to go back to work, because that all they had to do! They were not meant to have anything else to do or another life to live! What about those who simply died in some work accidents? So what happened to those?

You may wonder, right? I’m going to tell you nothing but the truth, those “citizens” who were just labor, lived and died at work. And what happened to those who became useless? and what happened to those who were useless for a while! They were fired, thrown away like used old rags, they were simply replaced. Everyone down there was used till totally abused. And when  the infinite “industrial kingdoms” needed some labor they simply requested more digits to do the work. And that happened either through the “Royal Educational missions” since they knew how to find people with low IQ, or letting some labor, in advance of course since it was all planned and designed to last for hundreds of decades, to make children, and those children were considered as the future labor digits. And of course to answer your questions, they were all brought up with the least resources and with no education, they were simply made to be nothing but non-stop workers, they were meant to grow up to work till they died. And those who died were burned and their ashes no one cared for. To bury all these it meant they had to sacrifice some space of land, which no one wanted to do, it can be used for industrial purposes.

That was the life cycle of a working “citizen”, it can be short, it can be long, but at the end it was all the same.

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms, Occasions! “Episode 4”

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms
The Kingdom of All Kingdoms

Christmas? New Year’s? Mothers’ day? Valentine’s? The Queen thought: oh really? When is this going to end?!

The “citizens” were always totally annoying a few days before a certain occasion, running around shopping for gifts, clothes, booking spots in restaurants to dine, hotel rooms, or booking tickets in theaters, buying big amounts of flowers, chocolates, decorations, foods and beverages, etc. Making the cities noisy, dirty and jammed. Besides that everything looked so trivial, cheap, and pretty much meaningless, tasteless and colorless.

The Queen was wondering if “citizens” actually understood the real meaning behind these occasions, but she surely knew they didn’t. She also understood the majority of them were shallow, and expressed their feelings in a materialistic way, they were too shallow to take a minute and read to find out the real reason behind any occasion. She thought it’s totally odd how people don’t get sick and tired of repetitions, when every year they had the same occasions and they did the same things over and over again till their lives came to an end, and how they made sure to teach the coming generations to keep that loop of repetition. She even thought these “citizens” would celebrate any occasion even if it wasn’t related to them or to their culture and beliefs, and funny enough they did celebrate that the same way the celebrated everything else. She thought low of those who ignored glorious honorable occasions and replaced them with silly ones, and how they didn’t mind to erase their identities and origins. It was absolutely stupid to her how they didn’t notice how they keep making the rich richer when they keep spending, or wasting she preferred to think, their money this way.

Birthdays especially turned the Queen sarcastic and ironic, when she saw “citizens” joyful about their birthdays. She thought how can any of them be happy to lose one more year of their lives! But anyway there weren’t all that important to live forever.

She wasn’t pleased to see how the rich didn’t teach their kids to try and be creative but instead took them to shops to buy gifts and taught them nothing sensual but rather materialistic.

She was only happy to see how some kids down there tried to make gifts by themselves, drew and painted some cards and wrote actual letters, picked flowers from the fields, and crafted simple things that reflected their feelings and innocence. The poor of course had no chance to buy things, but rather made their own desserts, foods and drinks. They exchanged simple gifts they made themselves, or exchanged last year’s gifts. But those made her smile, when she sat on her throne above there and watched the life of these “citizens” passing by.

The Queen decided for 10 “citizen” years to ruin these occasions for the “citizens” trying to lessen the bullshit happening down their by making the weather totally icy, or absolutely  hot and dusty. She Enjoyed seeing icicles, and mirror like reflecting roads, and loved the seen of the golden sands flying aggressively in the air in tornado shapes. She loved that power of nature and loved more her power of control.  For 10 years in every occasion that people turned commercial and materialistic she used ice and extreme heat with dust to ruin their plans and their fake joy.

The Queen needn’t know what they thought, she knew exactly how they felt and what they thought. She laughed at some when they lost their temper over it, and how they smashed things and fought against each other, it made her laugh when she saw people getting depressed and letting themselves down, and how their bad moods were so strong and affected others, these were selfish she thought, selfish they had no consideration whatsoever. She was proud of these “citizens” who didn’t care and had enough brains to think nothing mattered but safety, good health and took care of their loved ones during the bad weather. She liked taking a look at those who took the chance to rest their bodies and brains, and those who took the chance to do the things they didn’t have the chance to do in regular days. She mostly enjoyed watching little kids running around indoors still playing and laughing, inventing new games every day to play and kill time.

And although 10 years passed of no actual “citizen” celebration, nothing changed afterwards, the Queen stopped making the weather horrible for them, but still the moment things went back to normal they went back to their old habits and their old ways of doing things. She thought “citizens” will never ever change, the majority never wanted to change or make any difference and progress, instead 10 years of no celebrations made them hungry for more trivial ways of celebrating. And so the Queen decided to remember all those who did their best during these 10 years and decided to rewards them with inner peace and rewarded them with more wisdom and smartness. Although she loved the kids the most, and protected them every chance she had, she still kept an eye on them to see how they are growing up and what direction they were to choose for themselves as they started to mature a bit. She knew they are not going to be cute, innocent and lovely kids forever.

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms, Flipping Directions! “Episode 3”

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms
The Kingdom of All Kingdoms

The Queen took a trip to the underworld again, after she and the King made sure their industrial plans are settled. Every time they visit the underworld they had to transfer themselves into humans, because “citizens” won’t be able to accept something they are not familiar with.

So her visit this time was to see more of what’s happening, although she already knew and could see everything from above, from the upper-world, but for her royalty that wasn’t enough, she wanted not only to see but also to feel everything. She wasn’t very pleased with how “citizens” do things, how they finish their tasks and jobs incompletely, she thought “citizens” generally tend to ignore perfection, she saw how they didn’t see the depth of their own lives, and how they do what they don’t like, or what they actually don’t understand, keeping themselves in limited circles in life. She didn’t like the fact that many of them weren’t grateful for what they had. And that of course wasn’t what would satisfy her. Knowing herself that in her “remote kingdoms” there were plenty of things to do, to have, many places to visit and see, many blessings to be grateful for, and most of all there was freedom for all but they simply didn’t know what freedom was like or how to find it.

The King himself, thought the Queen shouldn’t bother herself too much with that, since it was their lives and they, the “citizens”, cold live it as they wished, and they anyway their lives were relatively short. But he didn’t stop her either, acknowledging to  himself how much of a perfectionist she was, and she is until this day. And he also understood long time ago that she would still always have her human side. Oh well I forgot to tell you that the Queen Zoya herself one day was human, was a “citizen” in some “remote kingdom” just like the others, but somethings happened and changed her life completely. I will narrate that to you later, when the time is right. But don’t get confused here, King David The Great was never a “citizen”.

The Queen communicated with some “citizens” in different “remote kingdoms”,

Dear citizen of the “remote kingdom”,

I would like to know how you feel about hour job and life style, knowing that you are a mathematics teacher, with no other interests whatsoever, My Royalty also knows that you are not very happy doing your job. You were more enthusiastic a few years ago, and you were willing to do what you had to do to teach kids and teenagers mathematics in a proper way. But no more now. 

The Queen of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms.

Zoya

This “citizen” was astonished by receiving a message like that on his phone, sent from a local no. and didn’t really understand who that was, he knew nothing about the words she used, like The Queen of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms! where is that coming from? what Kingdoms? And what Queen. Where he lived they had a president, and where he lived people didn’t call each other “citizens”, that to him was completely bizarre. He in return took that message as a joke, and replied back:

Hello,

Who are you? And what are you talking about?

Ralph J.K

The Queen replied after she sighed:

Dear Citizen,

Kindly take this seriously, for I know you aren’t. I know who you are and I know where you live. There was no need to mention your name to my royalty.

The Queen of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms.

Zoya

The “citizen” was now doubtful, but he did sense something important now in the first message and so he decided to try and open up and see maybe that can be a place to vent and complain:

Queen Zoya,

I don’t see any purpose why I should be happy about my job when I have been doing it for years now and people don’t appreciate it, neither the management, nor the students. I haven’t even gotten a respectable raise, and this is why I don’t like my job no more. And I can’t find a reason to like it and put all my efforts in it. 

Speaking of interests there is nothing much to do in this city, and I don’t feel like I should do anything.

She did somehow understand where is this all coming from. By the way, The Queen was taking a boat trip across the Indian Ocean, relaxing under the merciful sun, she pretty much likes the underworld oceans and sees, they absolutely differ from what she has in her upper-world. She of course replied to Ralph:

Dear citizen,

Have you tried to change your job? And I myself know how interesting your city is, in this “remote kingdom” there are many things to do, other “citizens” did improve the city a lot, and the youth there did make their best to make the city a fun place to live in!

The Queen of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms.

Zoya

Annoying he found it how she had to sign every single message, but he just ignored that, and found it an old-school kind of thing. But anyway he replied:

No, I haven’t tried to change my job. I haven’t got the time to think of anything else I can do, time passes by too quickly, a week starts to finish followed by another and so on.

And regarding what you called it an interesting city, it’s not true, I’m sorry, but I don’t agree with you. What do find interesting here? The parks? or the clubs? or the many restaurants? or the museums that we visited over and over when we were kids? Or maybe you mean all the diving, snorkeling and other water activities we have because we are located by the ocean? Or what is exactly you mean?

The Queen saw that coming, these “citizens” never tried to see other cities or other “remote kingdoms” and for them everything seemed lame by now, everything is so familiar and lame, boredom got to them. But it was still as she saw it their fault to trap themselves like that. She didn’t reply to that “citizen” again. She did communicate with other citizens too, and without them knowing she visited their houses, work places, saw their properties and lands, watched them from afar suffering poverty and pain. But she wanted to teach them something, something they didn’t know before. Let’s take this Ralph as an example.

Zoya the Queen decided to put that “citizen” in a position where he can change his life and learn. She did manage his life to go in certain way so he loses his job, and ends up unemployed for several months. He didn’t move a muscle for a while, but when he started running out of money he started searching and looking, he even sat and thought of himself and what he liked to do and what he didn’t want to be like. For him being unemployed for several months was awful, it did frustrate him, he went crazy sometimes, cursing everything. Sometimes he ended up being drunk, wasted, totally wasted. He didn’t know what to do, no one called him for any interviews although he applied to several schools and companies, and when they did they never called him back to see him again or to offer him an actual job. He at some point had to accept silly jobs he never wanted, like being a delivery car driver, he accepted jobs like a waiter, things only students would do. But he had no choice. At the same time, he took it easy and bit by bit he learned to be patient, he did realize that he could do better at his previous job as a teacher, and he could get promoted, and he admitted to himself that he never tried hard enough to get there. He sooner started doing the things he enjoyed, he enjoyed taking pictures of people and the city, he did enjoy hanging out at the beach and made new friends, positive people who also tried to help him to find a job. Yes he still got frustrated sometimes, and thought he lost hope some other times, but he told himself that even if he gets mad and smashes things at home or fights with someone he was going to still try. One day he did realize that he was never grateful towards any of the jobs he ever had. A week later, he was employed in a corporate that needed creative smart people like him, with enough IQ to help the government to keep their schools and universities updated with the latest information and researches, and he loved that job!

Queen Zoya from above, did keep up with the changes this “citizen” and others faced, and saw how each one of them reacted to all that. She was very impressed with another “citizen” who decided at the end that he didn’t want to stay where he was staying, since he always complained he never belonged to where he came from and that his country, as humans call it, no matter how hard he tried never made him a rich man, he suffered enough poverty in his life and he got sick of it, and things got worse as well after he received that weird message from that person who called herself The Queen. He decided travel and travel across the “remote kingdoms” until he found one that he could finally call home and after a couple of years of settling down he started his own business, which later made him finally a rich man!

Little did they know how much they can change with their own hands if only they wanted to.

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms, The Royal Educational Missions! “Episode 2″

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms
The Kingdom of All Kingdoms

The noble hired staff of “The Royal Educational Missions” did spend enough time for research and study to decide how to filter “citizens” in some “remote kingdoms” to see who’s IQ was high and who’s is low. And accordingly in some regions, or call them “remote kingdoms” the majority of “citizens” did have low IQ levels. That was decided according to IQ tests and brain scanning. The noble staff did feel surprised to results.

IQ testing and brain scanning continued till everyone in the “remote kingdoms” got tested and scanned. It didn’t take much time for this to be done, a human year we can say, which is less than a month in the upper world. Everything was decided, but not everything was supposed to be done suddenly and right now, because the King and the Queen have forever lasting plans to keep the development and progress happening in both worlds, the upper and the under.

Some “kingdoms” were completely evacuated, they were chosen according to their landscape or earth resources and environment. No  “citizen” were allowed to live there for a while. And thousands of factories where installed, or under construction, hundreds of thousands of barracks for the working “citizens” to live in, and of course civil service centers. Other than that nothing was to be done. A whole “human country” was turned into an industrial land, ready to start as soon as the “citizens” with low IQ are brought in. These places were not to be recognized anymore, no landmarks, no statues, no houses like before, you won’t see schools, universities, temples, restaurants, malls, cars, etc.

People were moved in, information on how to do and what to do were simply installed in their brains, they were taught in seconds how to live a whole life full of routine and no creativity, and a whole list of what not to do was also installed,the list was long, long enough that doesn’t fit in a book, but in the brain it remains.

Sadly these “citizens” that were chosen as workers also had their feelings removed, there was no way to keep them with their feelings, what if they didn’t like their jobs, what if they didn’t like their routine and wanted to change that? what if they felt tired and needed a vacation? no no that is all not a possibility! What about all the dramas that may happen inside work environments that is usually started by women? there was no time to waste inside such “kingdoms” this is the place for work, for making and for production, and human reproducing was also programmed in these “kingdoms”, “citizens” there have no choice of when to have kids, this is what the upper world decides. And so They started manufacturing everything smart “citizens” needed in other kingdoms. That was the “infinite working labor”, and the infinite “industrial kingdoms”

Introduction

Episode 1

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms, The Royal Educational Missions! “Episode 1”

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms
The Kingdom of All Kingdoms

The King and the Queen are on a mission to increase the level of education in all the “Remote Kingdoms” after noticing a huge drop down in education and “citizens’ IQ” there.

Communicating with some “citizens” did actually show that education in the underworld is fruitless. there is one communication happened between the Queen and one “citizen”:

Dear citizen of the remote Kingdoms,

Provide my royalty with your exact address, our Royal Educational Missions need to reach out to you and all the locals in your surrounding to figure the reasons for low IQ. We believe there is a serious problem in education in your region.

We look forwards to your civil proper support.

The Queen of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms,

Zoya

The “citizen” did cooperate:

Remote Kingdom Jordan,

15, South  Eastern St. Block 1505

Come so I can screw your face!

The Queen’s response:

Dear Citizen, 
My royalty did stress on the importance of a civil and proper help…

Anyway, the missions will be there soon.

The Queen of The Kingdom of All Kingdoms,

Zoya

The “citizen” was still mad for no obvious reason for the queen, and kept insulting and cursing the King, the Queen and the Kingdom of all Kingdoms. The Queen did still want to help her citizens, nevertheless they are in her remote kingdoms. And so the Queen ordered a new house for the “citizen” keeping in mind the “citizen’s” emotional status and materialistic needs to settle down and find a shelter, her order came like this “What is wrong with this citizen… Give her a new house, maybe she needs a place to stay in…” but still the “citizen” was acting weird.

The Royal Educational Missions already have a plan and have their standards to detect the error in education and the low IQ. Their mission now is just to find the reasons and measure the size of the problem then afterwards take action. In case the problem was not sever and can still be handled the Royal Educational Missions will change the whole system of education in the “Remote Kingdoms”, keeping in mind the culture, the needs and the diversity in the societies. But if the problem was very complicated and there was no chance to fix educational problems in some “Remote Kingdoms”, the Royal Educational Mission will have to report these regions as “Educationally Useless”, the “citizens” in these regions will be used differently to serve “citizens” who are more educated and help them develop their kingdoms.

The King and the Queen both understand and realize the importance of keeping the progress everywhere. If one kingdom refuses to be educated it should be as a helping tool for others. The uneducated kingdoms can be easily turned into complete industrial camps, where “citizens” have to work 8 hours daily to manufacture and provide what educated and more progressed “citizens” need for their further progress. Their lands will soon change, and there will be no culture, or history, or pleasure at all, it all will be removed from their lives. The landscape will be changed in order to benefit from it and use all the elements earth has in certain regions. Big factories will be installed, and basic housing systems will be built. no colors, no beauty, only what is needed for a basic life of a worker. Uneducated “citizens” might be moved away to lands that can be of a much use, to another “Remote Kingdom” they have never seen or heard of.

For you down there, in the underworld, this may sound harsh, may sound cruel. But for The Kingdom above there is no other way to do things, since every “remote kingdom” has given hundreds of human years to develop, to improve itself and prove to The Kingdom above that they are worth huge progress and deserve a royal support.

I will tell you more next time!

The Kingdom of All Kingdoms is an imaginary kingdom that lays in a place a human cannot see or reach, it is ruled by a king “King David The Great” the character is personalized from a humble person that does exist in real, I keep his ID private for his own good, and a queen “Queen Zoya”  which is myself, Katia. The king and the queen are ruling both worlds; the upper and the under worlds, and looking eagerly forward now to fixing all the mess happening in the underworld. The reader will find different topics of criticism and sarcasm of what’s happening on earth. There are direct correspondence happening majorly between the queen and the citizens, as she likes to call them “The citizens of the remote kingdoms”

The posts will be progressing gradually according to life events.
