Story: Basic sanity, gone Insane
    #4387092 - 07/09/05 04:58 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I posted this in another thread, but thought it amusing enough to give it a thread of its own. Enjoy.

Basic Sanity gone Insane:

Along time ago, there was a kingdom of total peace and sanity called "Shang Ri La". The King who ruled was rumored to be an ambassador of God himself, although know-one payed much attention to names and titles, as everyone was equal in their peace and happiness. One day, the water supply was poisoned by an evil spirit, who sought to disturb the inhabitence of this land. One by one people started to go crazy, and in their craziness, the delusiond of ignorance, greed and hatred were born, and ruled in the minds of the people. Slowly everyone went crazy, starting from the lower class, through the middles class, and finally into the ruling class of political heads, priests and even up to the personal adviser to the king himself. As they all drank from the water, there crazed minds focused upon the king, as the only sane person left in the province. But of course, from the people's perspective he was the only cazy one.

Finally the King submitted and drank from the water, under the pressure of not being able to help his crazy people, who were agitated and crazy enough to kill the king to remove him from his position. Reluctantly he swallowed gulp after gulp of the posionous water,and slowly slowly, the view of peace and sanity began to reign over the province once more, as everyone in there insanity, thought themselves sane, and as insanity becaome the norm, basic sanity was lost, and none were left to notice the change.

Somewhat similar to my concept of the Matrix. :mushroom2:

"Don't believe everything you think". -Anom.

" All that lives was born to die"-Anom.

With much wisdom comes much sorrow,
The more knowledge, the more grief.
