PostSubject: Irony   Thu May 01, 2008 6:15 pm

Tried remembering the exact words but can't remember all of them. Got carried away and wrote around 900-word essay for exam.
=O
Need the exam script back so i can edit the story i type here TT
Posted here just for fun :p
K i'm being lame
This is as close as i can get...
As the title says it. A one-worded title for SA1: Irony.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________


Earth is in grave danger. Within months it is expected to suffer the same fate as the other planets in our solar system. There are now four planets left. The giants had disappeared into the blackness. Mars is already within destiny’s range. There is not much time left. Or so it seemed…

In the past decade, advances in science had improved exponentially. We are now able to distort space. Several successful experiments had been conducted to warp huge masses over considerable distances.

A year ago, reports from satellites showed an imbalance in space. Pictures of disappearance of planets and huge radiation bursts were recorded. There was only one logical answer. Absurd as it may seem. A black hole. But where did it come from? Black holes are the remains of a dead star. There were no other stars in our solar system except the sun. Physicists around the world have been trying to find an answer. The question now was now not the origin of the black hole. Rather it was how to stop it.

As time went by, strange phenomenon started to happen. The visibility of the famous Bermuda triangle became apparent to all. For the first time in human history its borders become clearly discernable within hours of that happening, astrophysicists recorded the largest solar flare to enter Earth’s stratosphere. Tidal patterns changed, ocean currents reversed, seasons started with freezing winters instead of warm springs….

Three months since the conference on the black hole, the largest project in the history of mankind was initiated. Project Life was designed to save the Earth and every living being on it from the black hole. Saving the forests, reducing global warming, cleaning the oceans was long forgotten as if they had never existed. Every global dollar was spent on Project Life.

The project was initiated by a team of fourteen: consisting of five physicists, two chemists, three mathematicians, a journalist, two computer programmers and a military general. Each finely trained in their respective fields. I was a physicist, specializing in electromagnetic distortion. The central aim of Project Life was to create a mechanical device to divert the black hole. The machine was by now almost complete, it was in its finalization stage. The device itself was not big. It consisted of many car-sized machines over large distances working together. If we were to invent a single powerful machine, the Earth’s crust would be ripped apart. When a single weaker small-sized machines working alone, it can do no effect, but when you put multiples of them in a specific pattern, it would be amplified exponentially. The challenge now was to ensure that the timings for the activation of the machines were accurate to the microsecond. If it is off by several microseconds the amplified energy would be redirected elsewhere and Earth would be ripped apart by its sheer force.

The machines were placed all over the globe, in different continents, in many countries, forming a spiral-like pattern. The aim was to create a field around Earth to distort void and space.

It has been a year now. Mars had disappeared. It was time to execute the programs. But just at the crucial moment, I thought of perfecting the system. I kept on thinking that there is something that we must modify when the machine operates. I said that the timings have to be the same for all the machines. But this had been done before through exhaustive calculations had been done by the most powerful super computer that can ever exist. We are the finest in our professions. And yet, how could we have possibly made a miscalculation. I kept trying to perfect the device, to make it flawless. One wrong move would send humanity into oblivion. The computer screen showed twelve hours left until we were in contact with claimed destiny. There was seriously no time to dispute about. We then thought it was correct. It would take one hour to resynchronize the machines, but we did it anyway with clandestinity, everything had to be flawless. Immaculate and superlative.

Not long, just when the resynchronization was in the value. A digit. We tried to solve this last piece of the jigsaw. There was seven hours left.

We dispatched ourselves into pairs. Each pair was to go to a super computer located in different parts of the world. There were seven, one in each continent. This was to ensure that everything went well and were resynchronized. Opposing destiny, everything had to be perfect. There was three hours left, time seemed to accelerate.

Everything went well. Everyone was working together. All systems were clear. The logs and recorded data were reconfirmed meticulously. We checked it again and again, timelessly and perhaps, needlessly. It was now time to start the devices. What would happen next would be the ultimate chapter of mankind’s history. It was time.

Suddenly the field started reverberating violently. We all looked up at the sky. This was not part of the plan. We rushed back to the lab. When we saw the screens that showed the machines, none of us spoke or moved. As if we were lifeless. The field was created on the atmosphere were just reflections. Black holes were forming beneath the machines, they were engulfing everything. In just a matter of minutes, there was only a quarter of the earth left. In that instant, I knew we had failed. So much for being flawless…

The surroundings were turning black, it was our turn. Our fate. I just stared at the computer screen, watching the black hole that had engulfed the other planets changed its course, passing by Earth harmlessly…

I had been overcomplicating simple things, too overconfident. I had always believed that my contrivance would solve any quandaries and never make a mistake. The black hole was not our greatest threat. Destiny was trying to test us. All along my overconfidence had been our greatest threat. We had destroyed ourselves. Trying to do everything perfectly to the point of voidance. Trying to save the whole world was probably too much a task, when I could not even save myself, it is what I have lost. As my mind drifted to reflect the irony of life. No. The irony of my thoughts. My turn to accept fate was seconds away…

It was time for destiny to meet its fate.

I shut my eyes…
