The Science Fiction Conjecture
Life is never what you want it to be. It is more often about accepting the crude realities than enjoying the present state of living. In this limited world, science fiction represents the only salvation. It will feed your imagination with endless possibilities built around future realities.
Let your mind escape in those worlds too often and soon you will find yourself depressed and grounded in a society where you don’t belong anymore. It is hard to shake that feeling. To admit that the present is nowhere near what you could have experience would you have been born several centuries later. So how can one fulfil his or her fictional aspirations and stop regretting the future?
They are two ways. Become a science fiction author or take part in what you believe are the steps separating you from your dream world. Becoming an author would allow parts of you to remain in this transcendent state constantly. Melting your curiosity and imagination together into a delightful, if slightly schizophrenic, state. It would turn the meaning of your existence into the never ending celebration of what modern life could be. Becoming an entrepreneur and “changing the world” is your second option. Create a product/service that will impact humanity profoundly. Find an idea with the potential to shift mentalities and behaviours forever. Only by doing so will you get the chance to experience your imagination.
Yes science fiction can define the meaning of your life. It is a useful substitute for happiness. And by acting upon your new found plenitude, who knows what you will bring to the world’s table? Be it a viral thought…or just another wasted life.
