24. Ghost Plans

“There is no future, my friend” added Circeei “All that was built on the pseudo-revolutions which started with French Revolution are dead. Yes, we have collected information about them, and none of them were real revolutions, but just an excuse for the worse people to take over and do bigger evils. Look where they have lead us and what they have made us – slaves to an idea which is still not applicable to us. They have made sure that the worst could be rich and control the goverment. Earlier, the control came from at least those people with legacy. Now uneducated barbarians rule just because they have a tongue which can navigate around a huge demon rat’s arse. All revolutions of history has come up with an option to bring a worse situation and none of them has done anything for the future generation other than to enslave them. But this would be different. What we are doing is not a rebellion for the ninety nine percent, but it is for the one hundred percent”.

“When you are not scaring me, you keep impressing me; that I can’t deny. No, it is not just because you are beautiful, it is because you are awesome with what you have done, going to do…never mind. What are you planning to do?” asked Christian.

“You are a good man, Christian; and I am sure that your words will betray you before our paths deviate” said Circeei with a smile “There are no real plans. There are just ideas which are scattered around different areas. We call it the ghost plans. We shall fight, and based on how it progresses, each point on our map gets activated as the troops there can decide how to approach the battle from their point. All points are connected and affected by each other, but none of them pre-determined in fate. We need individual ideas and we want emotions to come into play, against their well-planned extremely logical actions which is single-dimensional”.

“My words? Never mind. But does that plan even come close to working? I mean, can each of them think of their own at the right time in the right way?”

“We value individuality. We don’t feed nonsense into the brains of our people. They can believe what they want to. We don’t want to create slaves of logic and make them like our enemies who have been enslaved by science for centuries, not caring for their fellow humans. Let them make decisions based on emotions, with special emphasis on righteousness. Let them sacrifice themselves or suffer for their friends. All the decisions we make won’t be logical, but emotional – for we are humans and not robots. We shall love each other and shall be ready to pay for the same with our lives. You don’t seem to believe though, are you in or out?”

“Yes, I am in. But what is with you and suffering? Except for the genetic mutation and stuff, what is with your embracing pain and death? You were always suffering, even before getting evolved to this world, and you gain from them all, and from the way you talk, I know there is more to it than whatever keeps meeting the eye. It is like you were born to suffer and is proud of it”.

“You don’t understand. There is no transcendence without suffering. There is no life without pain and suffering, and without the same, you never really lived. You were never human, or in better words, you never deserved to live. Yes, a world without all these should have been made with all the developments in science, but unfortunately all those developments were sponsored by the rich and carried out their minions who wanted nothing other than money. Yes, that once again points to the need for suffering to purify the world, and once they are purified, may be the next generation won’t need any more of the purgatory which has been established on Earth”.

“Is it the resurrection of our souls and the ultimate salvation that you are talking about? It is something one can wait for, with patience. With death as only the beginning, is it what comes of the other world that matters? Doesn’t that matter more than most of the things in this world?”

“You can take it that way too. If you do, in many ways, we are both the same. I have felt transcendence, a meaning beyond, and this existence of a superior power all which is beyond all existing logic. There is boundary to the logic, but not to our imaginations, and as long as we are creative enough, we can win this battle against logic. There are no rules in this world. We are all evolved to the mysteries of this planet, and even though you Christian is not, you are a man of your talents which we can use, as you know more than any of us or our enemies know”.

“My ignorance shall be my bliss. For what I know, I have to say that for the first time in my life, I am glad that I can believe with ease instead of having a tough time in making myself stick to accepting the lies as truth. When do you plan to attack? I mean when do we attack?”

“We attack when we are ready, and it won’t take much time. Before that, you might wish to pray. You will need it better than we do, for we are evolved and resistant to pain while you are not. They are weapons themselves, and they are pain; and our bodies are the area where they can use that weapon”.

Christian remembered the words of the voice “You don’t exist. It is your essence that exists. As a whole, humanity survives, even as the question remains – for how long and where? But they exist, but without their essence. They are just random creatures brainwashed with ideas of science as truth, when human life was never supposed to be a result of theories. It was to be dependent on the essence that exists, but what we see now is the existence that exists”.

“Now where are the voices when you need them?” wondered Christian.

4. Tea Revolution

It was the first time Jack has been to such a place where there were more books than open space in a house. It was a clear violation of the government recommendations, but it was inevitable in Noah’s case. His eyes stuck at a book title which looked different, which was The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis.

“How come they didn’t take this one away? I thought they had gotten rid of everything related to religion?” Jack inquired.

“No, this one didn’t qualify as a Christian text, devotional book or religious work. It is just an existential work of fiction”.

“Are you actually on dope, or did your brain just fail you?”

“I had to make a good payment to make a few brains fail. They cleared it as existential fiction, along with Camus’ The Outsider and Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. It used to be the most widely read devotional work next to the Bible. It used to be considered a classic. Has any religious book other than Bible been translated into more languages than this one? I don’t think so”.

“Thomas à Kempis should be proud. Is this the last copy of the work, or does anybody who share your interests have another copy? Or have you another one for yourself?”

“I haven’t really bothered about it. Actually, there is something special about this copy. Just take it and have a look”.

“Christian [T7Z44], Chief Mechanic, The Settlement 47 (Imperial), Titan. Sometimes faith is all you got. Have faith. Hold it close to your soul” read Jack from the first page of the book. “This should have belonged to a strong believer of the 2080s after the colonization of Titan”.

“I don’t think that he is just another believer. There must be something more about him. The destruction of Titan and Mars seems to have made the situation a little more complicated, as it is more difficult to get any information from the archives. They have erased the two colonies from the records so that the people will move away from their past which includes religion and spirituality. I still have a few papers which were used as bookmarks in this book. They are small letters which seems to have used an encrypted language and I guess I can make something out of them. I have been trying to decode them, so that I can get something which would help my later progress towards restoring the faith in this world of lies”.

“You have already started planning? And I never even felt so”.

“What do you think about coffee?”

“The most prestigious and the official drink in the city-state. All the coffee is now artificially produced and the people are forced to pay for it and drink the same five times a day at a high cost, with a price which is even higher than fresh air. Eighty eight percent of the coffee in the Imperial Firmament is owned by Acheron, and this business makes him the richest person in the city, nine hundred and eighty seven times richer than the second ranked billionaire. Without it, he might still be three hundred and fourty three times richer than the second, but still coffee makes his business strong enough”.

“The more important thing is that the loss of coffee industry would be a big loss for him, considering the fact that he has identified the drink with nationalism, patriotism and his government. It would cripple his ability to control the middle class.”

“So your plan is to deny the common man their daily coffee? Well, they might be denied air and water, but Acheron will make sure that they will still get the coffee”.

“What do you think about the coffee vents that go to each home?”

“Made of Titanium and coated with Kevlar. One of the most powerful carriers of any medium in the city. You will never get through it”.

“That is exactly what I want. Once I block the flow of coffee and ensure an incredible supply of tea through those vents, they shouldn’t be able to stop it in the middle”.

“So that is how you plan it. Now I know why you changed your workplace for a lesser pay and a lot of working hours”.
“Exactly. I already work in the vents. The beginning of the coffee vents is just above my working place. It is going to be a very easy job. The best part of it is that I would automate the whole procedure before I submit my resignation. Nobody would ever come to know. The coffee vents are also the least checked areas in the city, as nobody would expect a sabotage of the coffee supply. I would easily finish the job and get another job”.

“And what about the large quantity of tea? Where can you find them? You know there is only little tea available in this world of capitalist coffee”.

“Tea is the drink of the common man, unforced and true. I have been getting a lot of it from outside the city, imported as coffee. They have been made to smell and feel like coffee, but not taste like it. I have had some contact with the outside world through encoded messages. They have already sent me enough to make an impact”.
The plan had shocked Jack, even as he didn’t show it. He had considered Noah as a man who had too many thoughts and no action. He was clearly a man of few words, and he had kept himself close to the rules on the outside. Jack had thought that he would do nothing significant in his whole life, and here he comes with an idea which is going to make a difference, even if there was no certainty what kind of a change it would bring to the Imperial Firmament.
