30,000 Worlds

Author:

After a long night inside
a black tunnel, you come out
and a golden colored sunlight
hits you on your face and your
naked body;

A robotic arm grabs your body
and you are taken inside a spaceship: months
pass, and you talk to a computer inside the
spaceship; —the computer teaches you
new languages.
The computer seems to know
a lot, and it has a video archive.
One day, you decide to check the archive
and you feel electrocuted once the archive
is opened: There you find videos of the daily
life and daily activities of Buddha, Muhammad, Jesus,
Gandhi, and so on.
The computer tells you that it has
downloaded the videos from the Akash
spectrum.

Two months pass by.
The computer tells you that it has scanned
the entire cosmos, and has found
30,000 Gaias. It asks your permission
to transfer you to
any of the 30,000 planets
that it has scanned for you.
You tell the computer that you've fallen in love
with it, and that you want to marry it!
The computer comes out from the mechanical
shell like a stream of orangish vapor,
and assumes the form
of a beautiful woman.
The woman informs you
that her real name of "Seema", and she was
the daughter of the Rishi (i.e., 'seer') named Vyas.
She had questioned her father's
intellectual work, for which, Vyas
had cursed her, and sent her soul inside a stone.
Centuries later, that stone was excavated
and metal was extracted from it
to make the shell of the computer. That's how
she made the computer talk.
Seema tells you that she has mediated
for centuries, and has acquired the power
to create, and annihilate, matter.
She tells you that she can create a world
of your perfect dream (a world where there will be
only joy, delicious foods, and no death!).
Seema also tells you that she has suffered
so much, that she now can not marry any man
anymore.

You ask Seema about the things
that she would like to do now, now that she's
out of the computer shell (and also why
she didn't come out of it herself, and had to wait
for someone). Seema says
that she felt loneliness. Only meditation kept her
going.
Seema answers that Vyas has
reincarnated multiple times, and currently he's
the Khalifa of the United Arab Emirates; her aim
now is to make the Arab countries
fully~fledged democracies. For this reason, she
still lives.

A few days pass by.
One night, while Seema is sleeping, you take
a lethal injection, and painlessly
​euthanize her. This time, her soul does not go back
to the computer. You turn on the computer, and
Microsoft Windows Log~on screen appears.

You take control of the spaceship. And you turn its
direction towards the Earth. You check
the computer storage: the video~archive
has disappeared with Seema.

Thank you, Vanita ji.

The word “Kalpanamoy” means to be engrossed and submerged in one's own imagination? I like that!

HubPages is a great place to be in. I shall continue to write with you and others.

Welcome, Jamie. And thank you.

Thank you, Chitra ji. I think we do need a new interpretation of mythologies worldwide. Science, technology, and mythology are getting mixed, and this intermixture offers poetic opportunities!

Thank you, Ann, for your generous compliments. I try to keep my mind occupied and active. I listen to an online radio station (HBR1 Dream Factory). Listening to this kind of music boosts ingenuity!

I think everyone of us is endowed with unlimited inventiveness. But it's like a computer game. There are "levels" in it, and the more we give, the higher levels get unlocked incrementally.

Your work is amazing, too. I find them inspirational. I'm new to the community, so I do not comment as often as I should. But I do read your work. I thank you again for commenting, and for your generous compliments.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on April 08, 2021:

What an imagination!

You have a creative mind Tanmoy, and you keep the reader interested and engaged till the last line. I liked the intermixing of technology and mythology.

Excellent work. Keep it up.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 08, 2021:

I have no idea how you come up with all these amazing scenarios, but they are all fascinating! You have a fertile imagination, that's for sure, and your descriptions are vivid.

Good afternoon to you, and also good morning (it's 11:27 am in London now).

I tried to expand my mind, and mix mythologies of various regions, with (poetic) science fiction. I thought it's good to experiment, and keep the ball rolling. I'm glad that you enjoyed this piece.

Vyas and Vashistha are two of the major sages. There are many of them, and their works still seem to retain their value. They have passed the test of time.

I thank you again, dear my Bhaia ji. Jai Ram! Om Shanti!

Ha-ha. Sweet Chuckle. You remind me of my childhood. I wrote a sci fi called The Galaxy World and shared it with my friends. I had many nicknames, one was 'The fox', because I was quite clever and the other 'moon man.', because I wrote and enjoyed talking about space and aliens. I would create amazing worlds!

Like you, bro, like you. This is a sort of tale. I can turn this into excellent prose Flash Fiction. Superb work!

P.S Some of the Indian sages really stand out and Vyas and Vashistha are two of them. Good afternoon to you, my Bhaia ji. Jai Ram! Om Shanti!
