Man of Cogs and Gears
By Carlos Ibaviosa (copyright reserved 2013)
It’s 2594, and the old world has been destroyed by the biggest war of all time. Humanity was about to wipe itself out, before they were saved by a mysterious group of witches. In return for the survival of the human race, the witches made a deal with them: they must surrender their knowledge and technology. The world of high-powered computers and endless electricity was lost, and the witches left the humans with piles of scrap metal, cogs and gears. Now, a hundred years later, new societies have been built, but they have no knowledge of anything that happened to them in the past—only that war was the last thing they know.

"Live the life you’d be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I’m going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I’m wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they’re living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be. If you wish you were the woman who went for that big promotion, learned a second language, dumped that guy who cheated on you, then just be that person. Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it."
