Are you searching for an opportunity to unleash your literary imaginations? If so, get ready to let your creativity, expressions, and thoughts run wild.
MeroSpace presents ‘Article Writing Competition 2022’.
Here’s a brief description of the categories:
What if aliens were planning to visit us soon? What if we have been living on a simulation the whole time and haven’t noticed? What if you had superpowers? Running alongside our train of thoughts, we sometimes stumble upon unchartered territory and dwell there till it fills us completely. From epic literature to famous scientific inventions, all have been the works of unique imagination that dare to question the possibilities.
We are also naturally curious and it is fun just to think about alternate pasts or alternate futures if things were different. What has happened in the past, may not have happened that way. What things we consider normal, may not have to be that way. Our world would have been different if things we are used to weren’t in existence. And maybe, our unique imagination has some glorious future to bring. Let us take our mind’s eye to work, let us explore the endless possibilities, and let us ponder for a moment, “What if…….?
The movies made all of us think the birth of AI would abruptly annihilate human civilization. But what if AI’s goal has been to subtly manipulate the human minds? Why kill them, when they make good slaves? The customized social media content is creating rapid polarization and thus much hate and debate between people. Exponential rise of conspiracy theories has sunk plain surficial truths into deep gorges.
Did you really want to buy those shoes or did those customized instagram ads infest such desires into you?
“If it is free, you are the product”. Are you unknowingly spending your data and change in thought perception for a free product?
Can you be present in social media and maintain freethought at the same time? Are we already in a dystopia and just unaware?
