Jeremiah 18 – Holy Bible

He meticulously takes the clay and its dust,
adds the other ingredients of the recipe
that only He knows;
uses His mighty hands
to mix them thoroughly together,
and creates (wo)man in His own image;
yet none is like the other.

He painstakingly adds water
to the clay mixture a little at a time
so that it becomes neither too wet nor too dry
and stirs the mixture until it sticks together,
to create twins who are identical,
but each unique in its own way.

On the road that lies before you,
there will be twists and turns.
Sometimes the seas
will become rough to sail on.
You may fall,
love might flee, and
friends may leave too.
Words may be spoken in anger;
words that tear your world apart.
You may sit there feeling sorry for yourself.

No matter how dark and gloomy
the situation may seem,
do not give up hope.
Try to re-discover your strength.
Like the sun, you too
can rise from the darkness
and shine your light again.

On a hot, sunny day, a boy is born.
Soon thereafter, just like in the past,
daddy leaves.
Mum has to feed yet another hungry mouth.
Mum has to raise the boy,

Mum has no means,
no resources as the boy grows up,
she needs a helping hand;
but who will offer it?
The world turns its head,
and looks the other way
from the hungry boy, but he blossoms.

The boy becomes a teenager;
he needs a male mentor
to show him how to maneuver through life,
to show him the ways of responsible men,
But the world turns back
from the hungry boy.

Dear son, dear daughter,
I gave you life,
but I cannot live it for you.
Do not spend it
at the mercy of grief and self loathe,
but sit on the lawn, gazing proudly at the moon
and belch out loudly, saying “I’ll live my life,
in such a way that will make my father proud.”

Dear daughter, dear son,
I can teach you many things,
but I cannot make you learn.
Your fate is intact so far,
it is not cracked yet.
Do not let your dreams
flow into leaking jars;
but just like stars,
learn to speak your truth quietly,
and shine in silence;
learn to dream big,
in a world that is unjust and unfair.

My sky has slowly been getting dark,
but before they gather
to return body to dust,
I’m not finished with the World just yet;
my fighting spirit is
still alive and kicking;
before the lights go out,
I’ll keep on polishing the rough edges;
before I encounter the last stretch
of my life’s journey,
I’ll continue to glow as I grow.

The number of folks by my side
continues to shrink;
peers, agemates, family, and friends
keep on vanishing to kingdom come;
and the young kindred are busy
building their own lives.

But I’ll strive
to put colour into my grayness;
I’ll maintain a positive mentality;

Call me a coward if you like,
it matters not;
but I’ll walk away from any situation
that leads me to anger;
and I have no desire to argue;
so I’ll just walk away,
‘cause all I want is harmony.

I’ll walk away from thoughts
that threaten my peace of mind,
my self-regard, my ideals,
my integrity and my self-esteem.

The more I walk away
from toxic folks who poison my spirit,
the more

As a background, human communication has undergone tremendous developments in the past 30 years. It started with the Internet, and was followed closely by the smartphone and social media; three modes of communication that completely changed the information ecosystem and how we understand and interpret events.

Then, just as we were getting used to engaging them in our daily life, Synthetic Medium was born 3-4 years ago.

Synthetic Medium relies on the ability of artificial intelligence and the use of special effects to synthetically create fake videos and audios that look and sound so authentic that it is not possible to realize that they’re not real. It takes advantage of the fact that we as humans are
