A SHORT NARRATIVE ON OUR LIVES:
You’re an extra in a movie.
A part that was cast at birth and will duly end upon your death.
You are told the role is small and insignificant. Just one of many other extras, each equally worthless and disposable.
Others have written the script to which you cannot question, add artistic license or suggestion. Any deviation from this script is met with scorn, ridicule and ostracization
You must pay for the privilege of being in this movie. The price is unaffordable, but the studio will supply credit for which a continual role will allow you to repay throughout your life.
You will be given props that will make your role easier and allow you to communicate with other extras. These props will remain studio property and all data stored within will be archived indefinitely.
Your performance must be exhausting. Too exhausting to care about the rest of the movie outside of your own input. However, through this exhaustion you are instructed to find the time to actively hate the performances of others.
The gender and sexual orientation of your role is fluid. This fluidity is not open for discussion.
The schedule is relentless. So much so that studio-approved on set refreshments are provided. These may occasionally make you ill, but the studio has doctors on hand with the exact, inexpensive drugs and inoculations you will need to keep any symptoms at bay.
You will of course be entitled to time limited vacation. On the brief moments you are allowed away from set, the movie will be streamed ad infinitum to your phone, TV and metropolitan surroundings. This will ensure to keep the script fresh in your mind for when you inevitably return.
You are allowed to join a Union but this must be either Union A or Union B. For tax reasons the studio owns and funds both of these Unions through different named corporations.
Whilst away you are actively encouraged by the studio to converse with friends on social media about your movie role. Only comments acceptable to the producers will be permitted by the studio. Comments will be censored and communication privileges will be revoked to any contravening this.
You will sacrifice, family, faith and time with loved ones for your performance. But fortunately, your performance will allow you to buy them ‘things’ – this is wholly acceptable and actively encouraged by the studio’s online store of ‘things’.
Many will get rich from the making of this movie; unfortunately, you will not be one of them.
Resign and then question the lines you were given. Question who is making the movie, promoting the movie and why. Question debt slavery, why your food and environment make you ill, why the medicines are needed and who is making money from this circle. Question why the media would need to lie to you. Question why politically you must make a choice of either A or B when historically neither have benefited you. Question why you prioritise ‘the movie’ and material ‘things’ over the more important aspects of your life.
With each answer comes an awakening. A Great Awakening!
