The Ultimate Revelations
Mr Jamshed Akhtar
An expanding shell of less energy from the sun's
core, moving towards its surface for the last million years, breaks through its outer envelope some time in the twenty first century and decreases its output slightly. The shell is thin, and the irregularity is not going to last long. Still, the event has tremendous potential of menace as even this tiny solar hiccup has the capability to push the planet towards a cold grave.
Concurrent with this freak solar activity, a young scientist begins seeing strange and puzzling dreams of momentous events from the past. He sees an occurrence in the formation of solar system, a day in the Cretaceous period, Noah's boat being constructed, Buddha giving a sermon to a large multitude, Moses climbing the mountain to keep tryst with the mysterious fire, and child Mary's guardianship being decided in the temple. The dreams end with an episode in Mohammed's life, and leave the young man perturbed and intrigued. But, the mystic night visions prod him to study and collect data on metaphysical aspect of life.
Meanwhile, falling temperatures all over the world
herald the onset of an ice age. The planet in its fight for survival, tries to distribute the heat stored in oceans all over the land.
Tornadoes, squalls and high velocity winds sweep the planet and add to the misery of the humanity already suffering from the energy crunch. At
this crucial juncture, the young man gets an inspiration and presents before the world, a hypothesis about a Grand Cosmic Design... The Design is aesthetically beautiful, breathtakingly simple, and awesome in its expanse, yet the most remarkable thing about it is its promise of the expected arrival of a 'Message from stars' that has all the knowledge of Cosmos hidden in it.. The young man then goes on to reveal that this Message is already here on the planet, and the only thing required for humanity, is to unravel the coded information from it..
