Joe and the ETs

Prompt  ….

Thank you Mark for this week’s photo prompt.

What happens to the ‘information’ stored in one’s mind after death?  It is claimed that it gets disseminated in to the universe in quantum packets of information.  Occasionally these are channeled back into another human brain and are responsible for paranormal occurrences.

Joe started his carrier as a wood carver. His showroom had wooden figurines of bear, deer, etc.  He made a living – but the spark that makes the life  blissful was missing. It made him experiment with more fantastic forms.

Then destiny took over and an information packet from one of the batman’s illustrator found a receptive area in his brain. Soon he was churning out the green-skinned extra terrestrials.

Later his figures were used as a model to illustrate Martians in a comic series by another Joe and went on to become a popular icon.

  1. Hahahaha! So creative! When we die, the information in our brains doesn’t go away but transforms into information packets that lodge themselves in other people’s brains! The information packet that he got enabled him to create a “Martian” and an icon! Pretty cool! Great story YS!

  2. This is an imaginative idea for a story. A friend and I were talking recently about the possibility of knowledge being passed down through generations so that, say, a baby might be born with a base layer of musical knowledge that would then be built on through teaching and developed alongside skills. I like the notion of knowledge not being lost, bit being reused, that you put across in this tale. Well done.

    • Glad you like the idea. Essentially neither mass nor energy can be destroyed and information is just a form of energy. With the recent advances in quantum physics I visualized it as information packages that are dispersed in to the universe. Taking it a step ahead if it is encoded in to genes it can very well be assumed that it shall be passed on to the next gen.

      Thank you for taking time to read and respond.

  3. Information packets — an intriguing way to explain how inspiration, imagination, creativity “arrives” in folk’s brains. How some seem talented and wise beyond their years, etc. I like this idea very much!

    • You got it. Joe Certa of DC comics got it from Joe the wood carver and he got it as a information packet from one of the unnamed illustrator of Roh Kar in Batman comics.
      Thanks for the interest.

I love arguments
