The Ultimatum is near
When we are optimistic and think about future, we invariably
become dazzled by the technological marvels that the world has
offered, surprising us with facilities never before
imagined, like those that is a sight for sore eyes, letting us
anesthetized with the fiction becoming reality. Otherwise, when we become
realistic, what, to some extent , these facilities are healthy in the sense that

In front of this, what can the little man do against the fury of nature?
Japan was a pushover lesson for our arrogance. Have we evolved?
really? The truth is that man will face an ultimatum soon.
All clocks are counting down to something that will determine
our sojourn on earth.
I hope it won't be painful.
