Created the Same and Equally?

“And how are you today?” inquired the neatly dressed and manicured appearing Jane 1.

“Oh, I am perfectly fine,” answered Jane, 2. “The kids are doing well; my home is being cleaned by our newest robot cleaning lady. She is quite efficient, even if at times her motor eye senses too much to do and I just have to turn her off. She gets way too excited.”

“Oh, how I know that.”

“I do love my time to visit at the bridge club and visit my robot hairdresser. You’d think someone would invent a private robot hairdresser that would be available for our whole block of identical brick, two-story homes.”

“Yes, well, I guess we could share our newest model of our lawn caretaker. I must get my husband to program in the height of hedge we want better, because he totally cut the hedge down to only a foot, and now we don’t have that important individual privacy that we all cherish.”

“Oh, yes that is very important. I know what you mean. My quiet time of yoga and meditation is definitely important. It is so relaxing as I think of calm, peaceful thoughts.”

“…Just so long as our music stays within bound of calm, peaceful. Youngsters these days are so into that wild crazy stuff. Too modern for my taste and a little too wild.”

“Isn’t that the truth?”

“How do you like my new me.”

“Why, or course, I like your new me because I am the same new me—and Jane 2 laughed.”

“Oh, yes, or course, how silly of me. And isn’t it wonderful to be so alike and so alive and so wonderfully the same—of course, beautiful, wealthy. It is quite wonderful to have everything so perfect.”

“Yes, it is quite wonderful,” Both women repeated together as they acted in synchrony by picking up their coffee and sipping.

And God looked down on what his creation had become and cried. “My beautiful creation—why can’t you just be each your special selves that I created? Come back to me and let my spirit breathe in you again. Feel the real world in its vibrant colors and many faceted lives. Appreciate your differences—not your similarities that you artificially create.”

Much to ponder here. The language was stilted - but I KNOW you did it on purpose. Nice job.

Yes, I agree with God! And I find that the most distressing place to be "robotized" (my own invention) is at church! Like your take on this topic, BTW.

An unusual take on the theme. I had to think a bit about this (not a bad exercise for sure!!!!). Lots to think about. Nicely done.
