Tormented eternity

Prompt  ….


Many seasons passed. New generations ruled. Vaguely he remembered the present generation when they were still being nursed by their mothers. During that time, he had possessed many from the living  – without thought and without mercy. It had been an eternity he thought.

No! Another voice with in him objected.  Eternity is something very different – it is not a vast stretch of time and space. It is a confined space, dark and gloomy – like an attic and often full of giant roaches.

A frail voice urged him to walk out of the attic.

  1. Is the cosmos a flat disk? If the tormented individual finds the disk’s edge they can fall off. But worst may await under the disk. Now you have got me thinking.🙂🙂🙂

    • Our understanding (at least my) about the nature of cosmos and life beyond this planet and physical body is like a sieve – unable to retain any consistent theory or hypothesis …….. so the cosmos could well be a disc with underbelly full of despair.
      Thanks for pointing out another perspective.

    • So true.
      Charvaka, also called Lokayata (Sanskrit: “Worldly Ones”), a quasi-philosophical Indian school of materialists also rejected the notion of an afterworld, karma, liberation (moksha), the authority of the sacred scriptures, the Vedas, and the immortality of the self.

      Thank you for the read and opinion.

I love arguments
