Fate

A four letter word, but enough to emotionally shatter a person or an entire family. Planning for an entire life together, and all it takes is a small non-threatening lump in the lungs to destroy that. They say smoking is bad for health. They say smoking causes cancer in lungs. He never smoked his entire life. That guy in a train in Orissa was looking forward to starting a new life. He never made it to the new city. We call ourselves the rulers of this world, guess it is really not us. They say humans have got an evolutionary gift, I think it is a curse. The curse of intelligence, that makes us the weakest link ever formed in terms of survival rate. Well, we did defeat the rest of the species in terms of numbers which is the one and the only reason we still “rule” this planet. To hell with intelligence, that is also creating special weapons to destroy us.

To top it all of, the systems we created ourselves, wrote thousands of lines of instructions to ultimately not work as we wanted them to. #bug #lifeofadeveloper
So, it leads me to believe that what we created was ghosts in the machine. Random segments of code, that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul.[quoted from a movie I,Robot] But, we can see that happening in real life via various AIs. So, what we coded might actually be the end of us.

It is the time we really “evolve” in terms of superiority as a species, safeguard ourselves against diseases and other random threats using that supposedly useful brains of ours.
