An Intermezzo : Imaginary Machine

Posted on: November 28, 2013


Imaginary ‘machines’ that always comes to mind, hoping for miracle to be something real in this universe :

1. Mind-Erasing-Machine
It’s almost always difficult to find a good book, and it feels so damn sorry when you finally finished a good one, even if you’ve tried to read it very slowly and enjoy every second, every page. At the end, the book will reach ‘The End’ part, and you will feel something terrible like you lose a loved one. So that’d be more than enough if we can erase our mind, totally forget what the book has told us, and re-read again since the very first page. Ummmmm.. I can feel the adrenaline overflow inside, just by imagining that kind of machine. Good story is a treasure of mind, I bet you agree with me, and if you don’t, I won’t even pay you anyway 😀 If this machine does exist, you might use it for different purpose – forget someone you hated or ever loved, but I myself will definitely use it only for above reading purpose.

2. Time-Machine
One thing is I’m not so sure is whether you can change the history by travelling back to the past. If yes, I don’t think it’s a good idea, since your effort doesn’t guarantee that your life will be better. Do you really need to go back to the past (says), to keep changing your life path, as if you were in our childhood book, where the story provide you more than one alternatives so that you can choose and you’ll be directed to certain page and repeat then re-select once you find an unsatisfied ending? I will only use this machine to back to the past where I can see my father’s face again. Go through every single detail in his face – his smile, his wrinkle, his warm eyes, his nose (that’s 100 % the clone of mine) and put deeply in mind. That’s it, as I miss him so much. Then, back to the machine, same thing for future, are you dare to see your future and your death? I prefer no and live my life as it is now, happily.

3. Doraemon-Magic-Door
This is a tool where you can go everywhere, almost similar like no. 3, but I define this as a machine where you can go everywhere in the present. Well I’d love to have this too, no need a long explanation. Travelling is addictive, that’s it 😀

4. Know-Someone’s-Heart-and-Mind-Machine (or advanced version of lie detector)
I always and will always want to have this, but at the end the doubt always wins, as I know exactly what person I am. I’m bad in dealing with truth. I can’t manage it very well, so may be sometimes it’s good not to know someone’s real heart or mind. If they do lie, then let it be. May be protecting your heart is all that you need, rather than to be a ‘master-of-knowing-everything’ and at the same time, your heart is broken into pieces. So maybe I’ll skip to have this even if the temptation will always strike.

5. Aladdin Genie in The Bottle
Perfect stuff, grant you opportunities to make your dream come true, but it’s clear enough, this is too good to be true. Let it stay forever in the Disney world only.

Same like when people in the past assumed the idea of inventing the plane as crazy, we might have the same idea of above machines. But who knows what will happen in the future, with this crazy world?

Have a good day..

Fell in love with the name first, followed by the food. New place in Wahid Hasyim, Tanah Abang. Nice place, good food, small portion, a bit pricy but very recommended! @pardonmyfrench.jkt
*brb, need to go to Mcdonald
#lunch Can u believe it? The traffic was mad. Lady Ai2 was sleeping aaand.. I opened the app and playin' this again the whole time from Jelambar to Karet! I know it's pretty embarassing but 8 new monsters caught in 40' and they're super cute. No regret! I really miss the euphoria!
#game Felt so yellow here. Somehow don't really feel like homey.
#coffee With Aimee and Kuku @ye_23ly 😎

#food Natural disaster is my kind of movie
#grandparagon Kids mode ini kece banget! I've been Samsung loyal customer but never realized of this feature before.
#samsung Yummy!!
#instafood Tutor Time trial
@tutortimepluit Topic of the day : Anak n cruise 😁
#friends Come back here because this is lumayan enak
#lunch Situation : classic place plus little playground in the form of pirates ship. Usually rame and sering di-reserved buat acara so better call first before you come
#cafe Nice place tapi banyak nyamuk
#classic Freak out of bubbles 🤣
#bubbles Closest comparison with be with #magal. Side dish perspective I'd prefer Magal but the rest, @seoseogalbi_id is the champion. Nice and quite spacious place, friendly waitress, super juicy pork belly and of course their superb Seo Seo Galbi. Suka!
#instafood #zoomov time! Anak ini tegang banget tiap nyobain mainan baru 🤣
#kidsplay Just can't resist their mango flavor cheese cake
#mangocheesecake Nasi Krucil 
#nasi Minutes of serenity - I want to spend more time here in silence. Felt so relax and refreshed. Don't go for food here. Seek for peace, you will find it.
