THE PEPPERMAN AND THE LINE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH

IT'S NOT A SECRET THERE ARE MILLIONS OF DOORS IN THE UNIVERSE. WITH VARIOUS SHAPES , SIZES, DEPTHS, PERCEPTIONS AND DIMENSIONS. SOME ARE LOCKED, RESTRICTED, REPELLING AND REPULSIVE. OTHER'S UNLOCKED AND OPENED WITH CURIOSITY. SOME DOORS LEAD INTO THE FUTURE, SOME DOORS REVISIT THE PAST. THE SAME DOORS RETURN TO THE PRESENT. SOME DOORS LEAD TO ETERNAL LIGHT AND OTHERS LEAD TO ETERNAL DARKNESS. AFTER TRAVELING THE UNIVERSE FORWARD AND BACKWARD MANY TIMES. I BEGAN TO BELIEVE TIME NEVER MOVES. MOMENTS IN TIME, ARE SCENES IN LIFE, RECREATED, THROUGH VISIONS OF PERCEPTION. TO THINK NOCTURNAL CREATURES START THEIR DAY WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN IS A THOUGHT. A THOUGHT I HAD TO QUERY AND ASK MYSELF THE QUESTION, DO NOCTURNAL SPECIES EVER SLEEP IN THE WORLD OF DARKNESS? IF ETERNAL LIGHT NEVER FADES. CAN THOSE LIVING IN ETERNAL DARKNESS EVEN CAST A SHADOW ON THOSE STANDING IN THE ETERNAL LIGHT? IF NOCTURNAL CREATURA TURN THEIR BACK ON THE ETERNAL LIGHT WILL THEY CAST A SHADOW AND INFLUENCE THOSE LIVING IN THE LIGHT? THESE QUESTIONS AND OTHERS WERE ONCE ANSWERED. IN ONE ADVENTURE INTO THE FUTURE OR WAS IT THE PAST. WHERE I WITNESSED THE CORRUPTION OF THE HUMAN CREATURA THOUGHT PROCESS. IF IN A WORLD WHERE WRONG IS RIGHT AND RIGHT IS WRONG. I HAD TO ASK MYSELF THE QUESTION AS IF, I WERE STANDING IN THE SHADOW OF DARKNESS. WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE TO BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE, WHEN THEY ARE WALKING IN THE SHADOWS OF DARKNESS. IF FREQUENCIES ARE DELIBERATELY ALTERED OR MANIPULATED, COULD ONE REFER TO AS DESTRUCTION? MANIPULATION OF PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL FREQUENCIES OF WELL BEING IS THE DESTRUCTION OF LIFE AS ONE WOULD KNOW IT. DESTRUCTION OF PERSONAL AND PUBLIC PROPERTY HAVE EFFECT ON ONES LIFE AS WELL? CONTROL OVER HOW ONE THINKS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A STEP BY STEP CONDITIONING TECHNIQUE. PROGRAMMING ONES THOUGHTS BY INSTILLING FAITH IN WHAT IS BEING NARRATED, PACKAGED AS RIGHT AND JUST. STANDING ONES GROUND AND REFUSING TO EXCEPT WRONG AS RIGHT OR WHAT IS RIGHT AS WRONG AFTER A CONSTANT BARRAGE OF MISINFORMATION, LEAD TO A STAND OFF AND BATTLE LINES WERE DRAWN. THIS BATTLEFIELD IS WHERE ETERNAL LIGHT AND ETERNAL DARKNESS COLLIDED. A LINE SO THIN, TIME STOOD STILL. THAT POINT IN TIME WHERE ETERNAL DARKNESS WAS BLINDED BY THE ETERNAL LIGHT. THAT POINT IN TIME WHERE ETERNAL LIGHT WAS BLINDED BY ETERNAL DARKNESS. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF. IF ONE PERCENT OF THE POPULATION CONTROLS 99 PERCENT OF THIS WORLDS POPULATION, IT WOULD OR AT LEAST THEORETICALLY, BE EASY FOR THE 99 PERCENT TO RULE AND OVER RULE THE ONE PERCENT. BUT IF THE ONE PERCENT DIVIDED THE 99 PERCENT WITH CHAOS AND MAYHEM THROUGH MANIPULATION AND ALTERATIONS. THE ONE PERCENT COULD MAINTAIN COMPLETE CONTROL OVER THE OTHER 99 PERCENT. THEORETICALLY SPEAKING OF COURSE. THERE I STOOD LOOKING ON. IN A WORLD IN BETWEEN THE FUTURE AND THE PAST. IN A WORLD NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN THE PRESENT AND THE PAST. ON A LINE SO THIN ONLY MY VISION OF PERCEPTION EXISTED. UNDERSTANDING WAR IS ESSENTIAL TO CONTROL THE POPULATION. PREDICTION OF THE FUTURE BECAME QUITE CLEAR. ONLY ONE PERCENT OF ONE PERCENT WILL LIVE TO TELL THE STORY OF A PYRRHIC VICTORY. MY UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG LEADS ME TO BELIEVING GOOD, TRIUMPHS OVER EVIL. I KNEW THE RESULT WOULD BE EVIL SUFFERING RESOUNDING DEFEAT. 09142020
