Friend or more

friend or more

What is a friend? Is it not the man who guides you towards the right direction when you are lost in the streets of an unknown place? Is it not the guy who gave you a lift and saved  you the trouble of physical workout? Is it not the critic who pointed out flaws in your work? Is it not the labor who carried you all the way when you were lying bleeding needing some attention?

I would call each of them a friend and every other of them whom I cross over daily on road, at restaurant, on the waiting line, on train. Yet we have a very weird notion of friend.

So, how do u define a friend? A person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.

Quite the definition. Regardless of what we feel, we do consider this to be truth. Yet, we develop this affection towards each of them without any knowledge of it being mutual. And we spent the whole of our life, with this affection in our hearts and hope that it’s reciprocated the same way we transmit it. No, I ain’t talking about radio frequency here. 😛 But I do believe that it’s best to be acknowledged mutually to consider as a friend. Somehow, we may find it hard to be just friends and might consider being more than what we got. Of course, a human err.. but it is an err. How do we suppress a feeling from not growing into a different form and developing into something else than it is already. Do we kill our emotions? Do we stop talking, looking or even thinking about them? A jeppardy to fall in with no harm, at least not yet. But what happens to the friendship once it is out. Do we throw them away like they didn’t exist? Do we shred the apart and dump them somewhere so deep, as if they never existed? Whatever happens, once it is out, it is out. It ain’t going back in and we know it. We look in the eyes and see that thin line disappearing and turning into a bright light and requires a receiver that somehow willingly or unwillingly we are unable to provide for. Slowly the faces disappear and we think that the disaster just passed by. Lest do we realise that the storm remained and it develops within.

So, who is to be considered a friend? I mean to very much account for my own selfish motives at first and yet respond to the one I accounted for with selfless prejudice. An irony indeed, though given the amount of weightage seems so lightly to be taken. After all, we are humans and humans make mistakes. But if the mistake is repeadtedly time and again, it of course is not a mistake. It turns into a gesture, which of course falls completely on the observer eyes to judge between just or unjust and act accordingly.

Sometimes, the dream is more pleasant that reality, but that doesn’t mean we continue dreaming. After all, we all sooner or later have to wake up to reality. The only choice we got is, what reality would we choose it to be?

deja vu

We’ve all experienced at some point of life something that mere physics call as deja vu, or a feeling of already experienced the present situation. But what if that’s true. We might think, it must have been some dream we had, some of us think it’s cause of some inner physic ability that allows us to foresee the future, hence the effect. But what if it’s all cause of a simple disrupter in the time frame of the space-time continuum.

For years, there has been speculations about time travel. Einstein described in his Theory of relativity himself so. We know theoretical particles called tachyons. But these all theory. Time as we know is like a river, which flows continuously in a certain direction, whatever we do or not do, it still flows. I ain’t defying it either. We’ve seen it in our movies, tv series, fictions, about future people time travelling to present and warning their younger self about the events to occur and then we are all saved. But what if that’s not possible. Let’s say, for argument sake, that if the same bodies came into the same space, at the same time, the very notion of space-time uncertainty will be defied and the space or time frame will get a crack or a bang through it. Maybe that’s what happened during big bang but I ain’t talking about it now. So, if same bodies can not occupy the same space-time frame, then one of them has to be destroyed. But matter can not be destroyed. So, what happens to the future body if it does manages to travel through time?

For our theory sake, let’s name the body as “Guddu”. The future guddu as “Fuddu” (I know it sounds funny). Anyways, So, fuddu travels back in time to warn guddu about the accident that’s gonna happen(suppose so). But fuddu and guddu can not exist together. So, how does fuddu reach here?

Now, we said, matter can not occupy the space-time frame, but our conscience ain’t matter. So, fuddu does travel back in time, with a little conscience that is required to warn guddu. But guddu though feels a bit odd about the car(say it’s a car accident), still hesitatingly gets in and drives away, Conscience is something we can not control. So, even though the future message was received, the execution of it was highly unlikely given the amount of top it took to travel, the brain simply weighs it down under the present circumstances and continues the destined route. The accident happens anyway but this time, guddu feels a sudden sense of deja vu, like he has been in the same situation before. But he is still helpless on what he’s supposed to do.

What if we’ve all been travelling in time all the while trying to prevent all great accidents and results and consequences only we are unaware of them resulting in an atmosphere of despair only after the event has occurred and all we can do is keep sailing the river of time..
