Tiny Stories: Behind The Veil of Perfection

Popular belief has it that the universe is comprised of atoms. In reality, the universe is actually made up of…

For eons, all we had ever known was peace, happiness, and contentment, but Willa Simonson, nosy parker and malcontent that she was, decided it was her right as a free thinker to peek behind the veil of perfection to see if there was more to life than gaiety and tranquility.

And when she tinkered with the machinery that ran the universe, that was the day the Garden of Magnificence began to crumble to dust all around us, ruining paradise for everyone.

Thanks a lot, Willa.

    • To quote Agent Smith, “Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: the peak of your civilization.”

      • Loved that monologue from the film. It gave me a lot to think about. That film was truly a defining moment for our generation. It brought together several strands of philosophical thought into one bite sized statement.

  1. I had to laugh at this one. Willas just can’t mind their own businesses. Go poke your nose everywhere and make sure you smell the ensuing disaster. When will people simply keep themselves confined to their own private spaces? Oh and keep their mouths shut as well. Nobody really needs to hear them.
    Good one, Rhyan. 🙂
