“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Parallel Lines

Parallel lines –no matter how similar they are, never meet. Not even in eternity as they’re not meant to be, they could be tangent to the same circle but they never have common meeting point. They’re connected by a medium called vacuum, but then everything in this universe or any alternate universe is connected through vacuum. They show same characteristics to same experiences, attain same behavior but never change their own angle to intersect. Not everything in this universe is meant to meet; some things are crafted to be distant and are visibly abstract and mutually or enigmatically constant.

Likewise, expectation and reality sometimes run parallel to each other with absolutely no intentions to meet. Why the hell this world is crazy about meeting two parallel things? Reality and expectations have their own values and to bring them to saturation is to achieve a point where no more reality or expectation can be assumed. To have nothing to assume to kill the possibility of expectation and customize reality and it has always been a combination of muse that has lured many. 

It is a trap, to find the intersection point and be lost in illusion. What seems to be intersection usually is a bend, never intended to convert into an intersection. The point of intersection that is considered and treated as a concept of immense pleasure and infinite opportunities sometimes yields nothing and is the end of everything. To deal with continuity is an art, it is a chain and to break the chain is to break the connection from vacuum or to be separated by vacuum, float like an unknown mass with no identity.

  2. You are right. But that's the eternal struggle. Its only when expectation meets reality that we are truly happy. So while it can be a trap, I dont want to stop expecting - from people, from life - because I'd like to be happy. Even if I spend my life just hoping for it.

    1. Agree, even I do that. Guess, we all want all our expectations meet reality.

  3. Lovely analogy and the metaphorical description..what seems to converge at the bends diverges again seamlessly..infinite is this continuity..so boundless space-time is..infinite-smally human is..and it's momentary existence,desires,expectations and the illusion of reality....(and as per Einstein and Scrodinger,the parallel universe does exist..and so do the event horizons,the anti-matter,the anti-life and anti-human..a good link to think about

    1. Yep, I too believe in the concept of parallel universe or multiverse and counter Earth. Nice one, Schrödinger's Cat. :)
