The planet of the things

Zunen 1

The planet Zunen was a middle class planet and a place where about one and a half million Zunenians lived in. I say it was, because it’s been a long time since my visit, and I don’t know what the situation of it according to the earth time right now. I had first met with the name of the Zunen planet in the Humok library. This planet, which has a rich source of mineral fluids, made its living by exporting it to other planets in its galaxy. Of course the rules of the Galactic Council are not allowed me to explain the coordinates of the planet in here. But it’s okay to say that Zunen is not in the same galaxy with the planet Earth.

According to what I’ve read about Zunen at the Humok library, perhaps the happiest living things in that galaxy lived in Zunen. Besides the task Galactic Council gave me, after reading these, I knew that I had to visit them. Because there is a serious chaos in the whole universe, and visiting such planets always raises hope.

I remember the day I arrived the planet like it happened yesterday. There’s only one country on the planet. When I came to the capital of the country, or maybe more accurate to say capital of the planet, I forgot my hard trip in the last three months. After three months, I was very impatient with the happiness of stepping on the ground for the first time. When the Zunenian who I’ll stay at his house as a guest took me to his house, I saw that the roads were like the flower garden. In fact, there were only two kind of flowers in Zunen; but it’s fine, the presence of those flowers everywhere was giving a distinct joy. Despite this interior refreshing image, Zunenian who would be my temporary host was quite quiet. I had begun to think that my presence might cause him stress in the coming days, and I decided to start a conversation to lighten the environment and I said:
– What I’ve read and heard about Zunen was right. It is a fact that these beautiful flowers, especially after my long journey, cheered me up and put me in a higher mood.

My host pulled over his car to the side of the road and then turned to me:
-Flowers are just flowers, the journey is also only journey, mood is … hmm, I don’t know what the mood is. Anyway, while you’re here, you should not to use adjectives. If you make your sentences in this way, it would be thing.

What was the mean of “it would be thing“? Then, as if this conversation was very normal, he started his vehicle and continued without waiting for me to respond. We were quiet until we got home. There was a daily newspaper in the vehicle and I’ve read it in those quiet moments. The following headline had been written in the newspaper front page:

“The statement about the economy is thing, relieved the markets!”
In these thing days, when our economy’s thing situation has reached the level of things, at the economic thing’s meeting, spokesman of the economy ministry said, “In order to do a thing, the next thing we will do is to keep them under the thing way”.

It was like a cipher headline. What was meant to be “the economy is thing“? The following explanation had been added under the news: “In the all merchandises exporting, we’ve lead of things on the level of things. The thing what caused of this result will contribute to our thing economy.”

I didn’t know what I needed to understand from this news. I was very confused. I’ve folded the paper and put it back. Our quiet journey continued. My host too should have been so much uncomfortable with the silence along the way, that as soon as we entered the house he turned to the kitchen and called me with a smile:

– Zunen’s foods are also thing. This planet is where Korazl is always thing cooked. If I don’t make Korazl to you, it means that I’m not a thing Zunenian.

I had started to understand more clearly at that moment. Every “thing” word he used was an adjective. If I think of all the things as positive adjectives, my visit to Zunen could be better. Or if I speak as a Zunenian, “my visit to Zunen could be thing“.

I’ve seen much better in the days ahead that this adjective ban, which I didn’t really know why, was really everywhere in Zunen. When we entered a shop, there was “thing” add on all of the products as label advertising. Even some of the products’ labels were as follows. “The thing of thing price is just for today”. They were talking about the lowest price. The lowest was a “thing of thing” or on another product you could see “you can’t find the thing price like that!”

I had the chance to see the names of the schools. They had found a method in the names of schools. For the smallest age groups in children they were using “school of thing“; for the middle age group “2 thing school“; for high age group, “3 thing school“. I didn’t see any college at there. I don’t know why even today. It was written on the signboard of the only hospital on planet we passed near by in the capital: “The thing’s thing hospital of the thing capital of Zunen.”

In fact, Zunen was literally the planet of the things. There was not any information about that in the Humok library in my last visit to Humok. Actually this was not surprising to me, because I knew that Humok’s drunkard librarian made the latest updates about 10 years ago. So it’s likely that Zunen had been transformed into the planet of the things in the last ten years.

My host took me showing around the capital of Zunen for the three days I stayed there. I had the chance to eat Zunen’s most favorite foods and to drink favorite drinks. We also visited a museum with historical artifacts of Zunen. We couldn’t stay inside too much that day, because the museum’s closing time was very close. However, as I understand from the short tour in “The thing museum of Zunen’s thing history“, the Zunenians did not have much to do with historical artifacts. It was surprising that Zunen which has the livings’ history up to 80,000 years had no old artifacts. All the museum artifacts I could see were maximum 50 years old. That was confusing. But I was going to learn the cause of this after a long time; like in the same way I will understand better the headline of the newspaper I’ve read at first day I came here.

The real reason I came to Zunen was, of course, because of a duty that the Galactic Council gave me. Three days later, I have left Zunen by completing my duty which I cannot explain what it was in here for certain reasons. After all, at the end of the three days I spent in a thing environment, it was not my job to interfere with some things other than my duty. However after I left Zunen, I’ve found the drunkard librarian on my 7th visit to the Humok library. I told him I wanted to see the last records of Zunen. Ultimately, he was supposed to have made the last update three years ago, according to my calculation at those days, and from library I was going to learn how Zunen turned into that thing anymore.

The librarian first laughed loudly. Then he asked me when I went to Zunen. “According to end-component time spectrum activity of Universe Time Adjustment Center, it was more than 3 years,” I’ve said. This was an explanation he could understand for the information what he had to give me. “The situation is understood,” he said. And he told me that it would take time for me to read the latest informations about Zunen, but he could explain it briefly. Of course in return of a bit of mercury. I had come Humok prepared. After he took a sip from 2 gr of mercury that I’ve given him, he started to speak straight away.

-Zunen planet rulers, who themselves were the richest of the planet, as long as there was a reaction against the administration on the planet, to prevent this, they first wanted to silence the press. They bought all the newspapers at first. They soon realized that buying newspapers was not a complete solution. Because after a while they saw that the newspapers that wrote the news they wanted, were unreadable. The broadcast channels they bought are likewise. Nobody began to follow the news of the lies. They also monopolized the single source of mineral fluid on the planet. And they gave it’s big share to a planet which was in the same galaxy and produced complete weapons also police robots. Zunen politicians said “With the police robots and weapons we will take in return of Zunen mineral’s share, Zunen would take control of public order and it would be a more peaceful place,” to the public of Zunen. Of course, it did not happen like that.

If Zunenians made a sound against power, they threw them in prison. Almost there was hardly any opposition political party remained. The public was uneasy. Even if the public doesn’t read, doesn’t watch, doesn’t follow any news, they were speaking about the situation and the conditions of the planet among themselves. Zunenians were saying that it’s bad, very bad. They were saying that it’s awful, very awful. With that, the power announced that all negative adjectives were banned as of that day. When the power of the planet was thinking it was a complete relief, a new problem came out. When good adjectives were used too, their opposite situation could be meaningful. For example, what would they do with “high” adjective. Such as high dept or high price. As soon as they realized this, they announced that all adjectives were banned without good or bad distinction. Zunenians would no longer use the adjectives; they would use “thing” instead of all adjectives. Of course, many of the Zunenians stood up against power. Even a short time uprising happened. The administration also charged them as “Adjective Terrorists” and sent them to jail. But, many Zunenians had to be sent to jail, so a new prison was built. Even on the planet, only the signboard of that building does not have the word “thing“. All adjectives and all related with adjectives were symbolized by that prison: “Adjectives penitentiary.” But a couple years later…

The librarian hesitated and asked me again:
-When you have been at there?
-More than 3 years ago.
He laughed again. He was really high. He added:
-So you probably don’t know what happened three years ago and what happened next?
-What happened to Zunenians? I wonder what it was!
-If you give me more mercury, I’ll tell you what happened after you left there.
Drunkard librarian gave me his last reply quizzaciously.

But I didn’t have more mercury. Already I was always falling in his hook, line, and sinker. I used the mercury for another informations on my next Humok library visits. I still don’t know what happened next in Zunen. However, I am sure that a thing result occured in a thing envoriment in that planet of the things.

The interview with Migo on communism, Marxism and the extraterrestrial civilizations

While I was eating dinner last night, following thoughts came to mind. There were minerals, proteins, vitamins inside my meal at food bowl. I have all of them at the same time, easily. If capitalism doesn’t exist, I would go to the farmers or their cooperatives one by one, to find the best and I was going to lose a lot of time to create this meal. Of course, if I had my kingdom, everything would be better, even my single look would have made it possible for me to come a meal I wanted! I will not go into this subject, because my survey on “my kingdom or an administration as Migo’s conditions” had been failed, so long ago.

Anyway, while I was think about it, thanking the god of bone and capitalism and shaking my tail with joy, Migo asked me the reason of my excitement. And our conversation with him has started with the sense of rule of the aliens, and immediately afterwards came about the communist aliens. The talkings between are not very noticeable, so I skip those parts. And I wanted to have an interview with him about the communist understanding of the aliens. Migo accepted this. You will read below, the interview with Migo is a very first in the world. Maybe they’ll give me a Pulitzer prize for this, who knows? 😉

The interview with Migo on communism, Marxism and the extraterrestrial civilizations

-Migo, when you came to the world, why, and how did you decide to become a communist? Was it the parallel of a similar tendency where you came from?

-Good question, WD. I had came to the Humok library before I arrived to the planet Earth. I had stopped by Humok library. You know, Humok is a library where I discovered that Iron Maiden is the best heavy metal band in the universe, and I have mentioned about it before. I have read a book at there. The book’s title was “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe?”. On the first page of the book, there was a footnote that written “Notux species do not need to read this book; they are in a hopeless case,” by the author. Although I’ve found this footnote as racist, I’ve read the book anyway. If I say that I was unaffected by what I’ve read, that would be lie. Because there were detailed theories that approach to the whole universe and discuss all possible possibilities, their breakpoints, and better solution possibilities for almost every living species. For almost every living species, not only for a species, the book was telling that the universe could be really good. The author did not just talk about these, also was aiming to exemplify them by proving the theories that scientifically revealed by ownself.

-What kind of examples Migo, can you give details?

-For example, I’ve just visited the Yo-78kk planet, before the Humok library.

-Of course, as always you can not tell the location and coordinates of Yo-78kk.

-Yes, as always, the rules that the Galactic council has put on, prevent me from disclosing some things, WD. On the Yo-78kk planet, there was an event that had never happened on other planets in their solar system. There was a phenomenon that emerged after a situation similar to what the earthlings called “technologized”.

-Robots were revolt against, were not they? I knew it! If the aliens would not attack, this too, will be the most terrible thing that we, the earthlings ever lived!

-No, WD. What I’m talking about is different. On the planets I’ve already seen, there is no concept or description like the earthlings’s robot concept. If I return to the subject, again, I have not seen that in any of the planets I’ve visited, the inventions that made by the planet’s species, may cause a change in their administrative structures, until I’ve came to Yo-78kk. The Yoska species, so the species at the Yo-78kk, send their annual production to the union they are affiliated with. The union gives a biological pigment of the type “e” called xonfosil, which Yoskas need, for in return. This is a pigment that increases their resistance to blue light. The Yo-78kk planet is into an electromagnetic wave spectrum, where the high incidence of blue color and light are reflected. Although this event causes to their movements very fast, they can somehow balance it with taking xonfosil pigment.

-I think you have the absence of this pigment, Migo.

-Why do you ask such a question WD?

-You’re constantly moving fast, walking like a runner, or you’re eating like how a squirrel eats peanut.

-Hmm, I did not notice that. However WD, you constantly seek to divert the subject.

-All right, all right, go ahead please, Migo. (you see, my dear readers, I know very well how to touch an alien’s sore spot, hehe!)

-Briefly, in exchange for the xonfosil pigment, Yoskas have the chance of normal life. They have to send their productions to the union in order to get xonfosil. 1000 Yoskas are represented by one Yoska in the administrative structure. This process develops under the control of their “administrative structures” with the expression of the earthlings. In fact, this administrative structure, in every new year of Yo-78kk, is being renewed again. Those who have not been involved in administrative affairs, such as a kind of jury membership, take part in the administration at the following year. But for facilitating this, that is, to facilitate the functioning of this alternating administration, a device was invented which we can call “technological” with the earthlings language. According to this device, the sorting was automatically determined. However, after the first 10 years of the device operation, it began to fail. As a result of this breakdown, those who served in the previous year, took a duty in the following year, or their seats were empty, and an equitable understanding disappeared.

This new situation, what kind of trouble can bring, you may think WD. However, the life span of a Yoska is three Yo-78kk years. So after this breakdown, a Yoska, who took the duty at administration at the last year of his life, was called to the duty after he died. Because he was no longer, his seat was empty. And the 1000 Yoskas that he represented were bogged down. Those 1000 Yoskas deprived of xonfosil pigment. Yo-78kk planet turned into a planet where the Yoskas ran like crazy around and could not adjust the speed of its own movement.

-Did not they think to fix the problem of the device, Migo?

-That Yoska who invented the device had died, and none of the others knew how to operate it, and of course how to make a new one.

-What kind of solution was for Yoskas in the book of “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe” that you’ve read in Humok library? And what is it’s relating with that you decided to be a communist alien?

-In a part of the book “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe,” the followings were written:

“The every living species that reveals use device due to its own laziness, even if deserves the things that might happen to them as first, if the vital integrity and the obligatory social organization that occured from it’s necessity, is interrupted with this reason, then the way to overcome the crises is that to arise against those who created the marketplace of their own production, and to act.”

What was the product of Yoskas? It is a mine under the soil of Yo-78kk planet; that 3 different planets need it. So, in short, the author of the book said that, “You are lazy primarily, but the reason that drives you to use this device is the marketplace which is created by the union that demands the material you mined for, with the most optimistic estimate. If you do not act against the creators of this marketplace and the problems they caused, another problems will emerge.”

The union which the Yoskas were affiliated, in a way, was a union that obliged to provide the balances. It was not a commercial union. It was assigned a task so that the exchange of planets would be complete smoothly and seamlessly. It was doing this with full authority by taking from all the other planets in, which including the Yo-78kk planet has been. This authorisation also gave the authority to the union, to research and report on the facts that the productions of the each planet were over more than necessary or under-produced, and to solve problems. The real problem here was that, as far as I have heard from a Yoska, the Yoskas population was always the same. Birth and death rates were always the same, constant. Their population was never different from a year ago. However, in two of the three planets where were needed Yo-78kk’s mine, the populations were constantly increasing, and they needed more and more in each year the mine of the Yoskas.

Even if the author of the book mentions the possibility of their laziness, actually Yoskas invented the device because of they had no time to choose the simplest administrative task, since they had to extract more mine with the same number of workers. The main problem here was the task of ensuring the balance between the planets. And if Yoskas did not act against them, they would be vanished in some way. In fact, it happened like that. Many of them lost their mental health due to their extreme speed of motion, and a new species were brought to their planets from another solar system, began to extract the mines Yoskas extracted before. So their planet was occupied in some way. The remaining Yoskas can now be seen in the territories where reserved for them on the Yo-78kk planet, while selling handmade gift with three-hole metal coloring; this belongs to the culture of Yoska.

When I came to the planet Earth, WD, I saw that there was the only book that addressed what happened to Yoskas or similar problems. This was the Communist Manifesto. This has increased my tendency to the earthling communists.

-Migo, if I was a Yoska, I would have wanted a share from the mine I extracted, and stored them, after then increase the demand for the market, I would have sold them in exchange for the high amount of xonfosil pigments at the black market. This would have given me a comfortable and healthy life in my fleeting, three-years of Yoska life.

-While you are doing this WD, how would you move without thinking of other Yoskas? And while the mining system was under record, how did you plan to do that?

-Hmmm, I think that Yoskas need to learn the mafia system as first.

-Mafia?

-Yes Migo, the mafia system, which has got a father at the leader place, organized around him, also if there is opponent’s family, this system wipes them out, after then filmed about that family by Hollywood. They are especially Italian, even Sicilian.

-I know what the mafia is, WD. I do not understand which part of our interview is linked with the mafia.

-You asked me a question, I gave you an answer from the mafia when I answered that question, Migo! While you have been saying that the solution will be provided with communism, if these guys have found a solution with the mafia; what is my guilt on it! I also plan to be a candidate for pulitzer with this interview. With this reason, do not mislead me, and do not force me to answer away from our subject. I can not even make an interview you, Migo!

-Did I force you, WD?

-Okay, whatever. I would cut off these parts of the interview before publishing, after then I publish them. Let’s come to next question. Now, you have read the book “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe,” you realized that some problems on the planets you saw can be solved with what this book describes, and when you came to the earth, you saw similarities with the communist manifesto and you decided to be communist. Well, after you have read your book, “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe”, that have you decided to be a godless-atheist communist too? Or are there aliens who are believers in God and being communist at outer space?

-That has been a different question. In fact, I would rather go through the examples of the theories in the book, and I’ve thought I would answer on those questions, WD.

-I was going to ask you those kinds of questions Migo, but you’re talking about theories, ideas, and so on. And after a while these topics can make the readers feel sleepy. I mean, it does not have the charm of it; can you see. If I’d like to add an alien photo of yours in here, to attract attention, everyone already will run away, and my prize plan would go down the plughole. That’s why, I thought that we would enter such a interesting subject like atheism that would be striking. (This paragraph will change completely, and of course it will not be shared with the readers)

-Well, seeing that you’re the interviewer, I need to answer. The biggest reason why I read this book was that it was recommended to me by someone else. Otherwise, it would have been a great coincidence to find and read the book “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe” in Humok, the largest library of the universe, wouldn’t be? Which is, there is no such thing as coincidence, it was impossible to choose to read this book in the library, I can say it was zero probability. He was a friend of mine with name Reedaz from the planet Juilcox, who recommended me this book. I had visited to Juilcox, and Reedaz told me about the book, also he had a reason. Reedaz described himself as “cosmbrado”. He is a follower and member of the group which called themselves “Cosmos solidarity brothers”. They describe themselves as cosmbrado and call to each other as cosmbrados. We can say the word of earthlings like this, is comrade. The cosmbrados are the ones closest to the communists on the planet Earth. The answer to the question you asked, is that if the cosmbrados are representatives of the kind of communist movement of the universe, yes there is no god belief inside them. I had already told you a long time ago that I have never encountered a living creature with a God or like similar belief with the earthings. So, it is unreasonable to search for it in something that is not already there, WD. The absence of my god faith is also nothing to do with the “Solidarity of Cosmos, what does it mean for the universe” book, I was the same before.

-Are you one of the cosmbrados, Migo?

-No, I was not a member of their group. I had come to the world, and I have not had contact with them for a long time. But of course when I meet them again, they will be the first to express my impressions and communism here. I’m sure for many things they will both amaze and be glad.

-Those who plan to attack to the Earth in the future will be the cosmbrados; is that so, Migo?

-What!

-Didn’t you say that “when I meet them again”, Migo! So there will be an attack here, you will go with running to them by saying “welcome comrade”, or “welcome cosmbrados” with hugs, and you will help them invade the earth!

-They are the “most civilized” group, with the definition of the earthlings as much as I know. A group so advanced, why they plan to attack the earth, WD?

-So, will the aliens never attack the earth?

-I do not understand what’s relevant with the cosmbrados, WD.

-If they are same as you told about, they will communicate with the earth in a higher and wiser way, instead of attacking the earth, Migo, won’t they?

-Yes, the cosmbrados will not attack earth. But it is not possible to generalize, so scientifically it is not possible to say “no” to your question, WD. The universe is huge, I only saw five galaxies into it, also I thought we were talking about cosmbrados.

-You mean, in the galaxies you have seen, there could be the other species out of the cosmbrados, and in the galaxies you have not seen, that can attack the earth.

-Any of the living creatures in the galaxies I saw, do not say “Let’s go and attack the earth; let’s make the earthlings upset,” while looking at the earth, In fact, the extraterrestrials do not too much care about the planet earth. However, in fact, the reason underlying your “alien attack” problem, is I think, your passionate of being hero, WD. If some day the alien attack happens, you want to be like the heroic dog Dzhul’bars of the 2nd world war, and then want to the heroic stories would be written on your behalf. But this possibility is one in 89 million.

-One in 89 million is bigger than one in 90 million, Migo; that means I can still be a hero! And also Dzhul’bars becomes me irritated!

-I know he did, WD. Do you have another question?

-For now, thank you for your answers. Maybe we can go on to these subjects later times in a new interview, Migo.

-The subjects that you will bring to constantly the alien invasion?

-Are you kidding, I have never done this!

Do you want to see more closely Polaris like the sun; but much bigger

Roscosmos (Russian Federal Space Agency) scientists have demonstrated that how would be the sky when look over Moscow, if the others stars and planets are seen instead of sun and moon. The creators of the movie have moved Alpha Centauri, Sirius, Arcturus, Vega, the North Star and the planets of Milky Way galaxy closer to Earth.

Some of stars name translation in English:
Альфа Центавре – Alpha Centauri
СИРИУС – Sirius
АРКТУР – Arcturus
ПОЛЯРНАЯ ЗВЕЗДА- Polaris

You know already the planets:) And, at the 2nd moment in video, here comes Polaris. It is so beatiful! 🙂
