Nadea & Her Spiritual Walk: Night One

In a secret island far from the mega-cities there lies a small village called Seymonatus, which in it there lives happily a young girl named Nadea. She is only eight years old but she holds a unique magical power that none of the ancients has ever witnessed in a thousand years. When Nadea sleeps, she dreams of events that occur in other places around the world. To her surprise, those events that she dreams of are unbelievably real and happening in the foreign lands. The elders call that mystical phenomenon of hers as a 'spiritual walk'.

One night, Nadea lays her body down to sleep and immediately falls into a deep and peaceful slumber. In her sleep, she sees a big city with hundreds and thousands of machines segregating the lives of humans. There are machines that fly above the skies and take the beating hearts of mothers and fathers far and far away. There are also machines that show pictures and speak words, and make the children forget their meals and books. Then, there are machines that do the work of humans and force them to only sit and watch. Nadea feels disheartened witnessing how those machines separate humans from one another, indulge them with pleasure and stop them from the sense of independence.

She keeps walking and trying to find a way to stop those sickening acts, but only to realize that there is more to them than meets the eye. She then discovers that the same machines bring the hearts of the old ones home, make the smiles out of the kids' faces and save the people more time than they needed. Seeing those heartwarming comebacks, Nadea smiles and wakes up mirthfully from her dream.

Talking about technology and its beauty and ugliness.

Night One ends.
