” I did it! I finally did it! Everyone thought this is some fairy tale story! But I did it! I cannot believe I did this!
I’m going to call my friend and tell him this. He might not believe me, but this is crazy! I just can’t believe it!
Hey Harris! Mark here, I finally did it! I’m successful in creating the machine! My dream has come true! I’m very excited about this!”
“Congratulations Mark! Your struggle has finally paid off! I’m very happy for you! What are the next steps that you have to do to move forward?”
“Testing man, getting more people to volunteer for this. Conducting trials and collecting the data and if everything checks out, expecting a nobel lol.”
“That is awesome my man! I cannot say how happy I’m for you! World betterment is the next stop! I’m here for you if you need anything.”
“I know Harris! I know it! Thanks for always being there bud! I will meet and talk to you soon. Take care my man.”
“Yo Mark, I will see you soon. Let’s drink a beer together next time we meet! Once again congrats and all the best, talk later bud!”
“It is always awesome to talk to my brother man! I think even I don’t believe in me that much than him. Should find volunteers and get going.
“I will give an advertisement tomorrow in media for volunteers and hope I get a few people or at least one. Should give an attractive advertisement.
“Here is the advertisement: Wanna know if people really trust you? And everything you say? If you are curious get in touch with me!
“Looks nice! I’m gonna post it and see what happens. Well its been a long day, I will sleep for some time and hope to see everything works.
“That was a good sleep! Let’s see if I got any volunteers. I hope at least I got one. Let us see………… here we goo…..
“Well, this sucks! I got zero replies from the people. People rush you all the useless and imaginary things but for science and development.
“What can I do other than wait. I will continue with the day and hope someone replies to me. Man understanding people is tough!
In the evening
“Let’s see if I got any replies about the advertisement. I hope there is someone out there who trusts in science. Here we go……
“Wow! I got a reply! Yes to the sciences. Let’s see who is this wonderful human being. Ah! looks like a man, anyone’s fine. Let us see what he says.
“What the…..! His message says wanna invest in bitcoin and want to turn $500 investment into $5000? Message to find out more.
“These scammers! I wonder how many people fall into this. I sometimes feel bad for people who fall into these scams. Well, I will check tomorrow.
“Let’s see….. yay I got a genuine reply! This guys name is Morris. He wants to participate in this and he is from this city, Niicee…
“I will message him and get in touch with him and I hope I don’t blow this up and I really hope he accepts to volunteer for my study.
” I just sent him a message and I hope he accepts and meets me. Everything starts with a single step and I hope this step is a success.
“Wow, he accepted my request for the study and gave me his contact number. This is an awesome start for this wonderful story so far.
“Hey, Morris! This is Mark, the one who asked you about the study. Thanks for accepting. Are you free tomorrow to meet?”
“Hey, Mark! No problem, I’m always in to promote science. Yes, I’m free tomorrow to meet you. Shall we meet for lunch?
“Sure Morris, I will text you the location to meet. We shall meet for lunch and I will explain the procedure. See you soon. Take care!
“Well, the story just got very interesting. I’m beyond pumped! I can’t wait to meet this gentleman and start my experiment.
“Hey Morris, thanks for meeting with me. So will keep it simple. I suppose you have read the description of the advertisement right?”
“Hi Mark, Yes I have read it. It is very interesting. I just want to see science has come to a stage to see if people believed what I say.”
“I’m beyond happy that a young man like you is interested in science and I’m pretty sure if I tell you the procedure you will more thrilled.”
“I’m excited and all ears Mark! Hit me with it.
“At first I have two pills. Both with different functionalities. One of the pills is I need you to take before telling the news to the person.
“This enables you to tell the truth. I want the news you tell to be honest and not to fake or play with peoples feelings.
“The second pill is for them. After they take the pill it takes 24 hours to activate. After that, you can tell them the news and it captures actual reaction.
“So you need to take the pill after the next day after they take it and just before you tell the news. I hope you are following my story.”
“Yes, Mark I followed that train of thought and I completely get it. Just one question, where are the results captured for this?”
” I have a Virtual Reality kind of headset that gives the data right to you so that there will be privacy. I just formulate it and give the details.”
“Interesting Mark very interesting. I’m in on this. I will give the pills today and call them by taking my pill right in front of you tomorrow. “
“Wonderful! Here are three pills to give to others and I have your pill. I can give you your pill when we meet tomorrow at my office. Take care man!”
“Hey Morris, so you are here. Did you give your friends that pill? And most importantly did it pass 24 hours after they have taken it?”
“Hey Mark, Yes I did and yes it is past 24 hours. I have one question though. If they already knew about pill how would we get genuine reaction?”
“To answer this simple for you, it is science, Morris. Their lips might be lying, but with their moments and inner body functions we can be accurate up to 90%”
“Cool! One more question too, why this 24-hour clock though? Can’t we take the pill at the same time and get honest reactions?”
“Very good question Morris, the pill you give them captures the data on how they speak the truth and lies in these 24 hours. After that their reaction to your problem will be honest”
“Interesting! I can’t tell you how excited I’m Mark! I’m ready, lets do this!”
“You bet! Let us unfold the other part of the Story! Take the pill and call one of the people you gave the pill.”
“Sure, Hey Claire, so I had a very bad incident Yesterday. As you know I took the pill just now and I will only be speaking the truth. Yesterday there was a big fight with my parents and I’m feeling very bad.
“I have these fights regularly but this is kind of a big one and I’m feeling very bad about it. Just wanted to share with you.”
“Aww! I’m sorry to hear that Morris. I wish I was there to help you with this. Just don’t take too much in and keep focusing on things that matter. You will surely have very good days ahead.”
“Thanks for listening Claire! You are the best as always. Talk to you soon!”
“Any time Mark! Have a good day and remember to not to take too much in.”
“So Morris, she seems like a very good friend. I’m sending the results to your VR. Take a look and testify for yourself.”
“She is very awesome Mark. I’ve known her for a very short period, but she like one of my best friends. A mentor and a mountain like support.”
“Glad to hear that! Shall we call the second one Morris?”
“Sure Mark, here we go! Hey Tommy, what’s up my man! So listen I had this big fight with my parents regarding job and stuff and its very bad man!”
“Hey, Morris, my man! Bro, I have told you many times, quit those bloodsuckers and do something you love. I’m sure even your parents will appreciate this,
“Sure at first they might taunt you and stuff, but you willsuffer for the rest of your life if you don’t. Do you want me to talk to your parents on this?”
“No Tommy, it’s fine! If things go out of my hand I will surely ask you to talk to them. Thanks for listening bud! Hope to see you soon!”
“Even he seems like a good guy Morris!”
“Yes Mark, I know him for 10 years, We have been friends since my school. He is one of my best friends.”
“Good to hear that! I have sent the results of these as well.” Ready for the third?”
“Absolutely Mark! Here we go Hey Roger! What’s up brother? So listen I had this big fight with my parents and it was very bad brother!”
“Hey, Morris, I’m sorry to hear that brother. I just can’t imagine myself in your situation. You have a lot on your plate, I’m surprised to see that you are managing them without losing mental balance.
“These are testings times my man! Just stay strong and I’m pretty sure you will overcome these too.”
“Thanks for listening bud! Talk to you soon!”
“Morris looks like you got some awesome friends. I have sent the data of the third too.”
“Honestly Mark, I just came to see how science works on this. I need not see the results. I’m pretty sure they trust me and I trust them too. Thanks for the expereince.”
“You are welcome Morris, but I suggest you look at the data. So the experiment can be marked as successful and complete.”
“Sure Mark, I will definitely look. Here we go. Mark I think there is a mistake. It shows Roger didn’t believe it. I don’t believe this.”
“Calm down Morris, I have been formulating this for the past 7 years. I’m pretty sure it’s good.”
“I’m calling Roger Mark. I can’t stand this anymore. Hey Roger, be honest with me the result shows you didn’t trust me. The system might be broken, but the scientist here says it is efficient. Please be honest.”
“Uhmm well, I honestly think you want sympathy or some kind of attention. So I think you might have lied about things and your story.
It doesn’t make sense that a person can have all these sufferings. Now you be honest and tell the truth. Do you want sympathy?”
“What the fuck are you talking about bud? Why would I want sympathy?
Are you listening to yourself? What happened to you?”
“Stop lying and wasting my time man! I have other works to do. Leave me alone!”
“Mark! What the hell is this? I know Roger since 6 years, this cannot be true, I mean I could have proved my story. This is not fair!”
“Okay Morris, I will tell you something very important. you gotta listen very carefully. You said you would prove your story. How many times will you do that?
“If you prove that you are emotional to someone to get their trust, you are becoming an emotional slave to yourself.
“How many times will you prove your story and the situation? What is more bizarre than proving to someone that you are crying?
“One of the famous Philosophers Albert Camus once said Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is, you are said in this situation and that is a fact.
“If someone doesn’t believe that, that doesn’t mean that you are not sad. That means they are not trusting you.
“How would someone believing or not believing you change your emotional state, Morris? It is not reality or logical right?”
“On the other hand, you have told your part of the emotion and the story. You are relieved that a person is listening to you. The other person believing or not believing is not your business, right?”
“You are absolutely right Mark! Thanks for listening, I will take leave and once again thanks for the experiment.”
End of story
In conclusion, I just want to say Human emotions are not concrete and we cannot express a single emotion at the same time.
It is always a combination of emotions. That is how our limbic system of the brain is built.
But some of us might be getting sucked into a single emotion at times. This can be due to the environment we live in, a situation we might not be able to handle etc.,
If we take this deeply in psychological terms, it is not a single expression it is a sadness that moves to grief, pain and disturbs the capabilities to think.
Why would someone wants sympathy when they are sad? If you don’t want to help or listen, no problem say that straight.
But if you are claiming that a person is sad always just because to get sympathy, that is the most disgusting thing ever and its inhumane.
According to many research articles, this is one of the leading causes of high-level depression. Not listening to one’s story and blaming them for being sad is bizarre.
