Once Existed


FADE IN:

INT. CLUB HOUSE - DAY

PETER reads newspaper articles featuring photos of sakura blossoms.

PETER (V.O.)

Yes, sakura blossoms

can still be seen in

Northern Honshu.

For those I saw in Tokyo

in early April, their

patels must have all

fallen onto the nullah

water.

Peter then browses some demonstration photos.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Years ago on copyright,

I was also a target although

my intention was to

encourage Hongkongers

to be creators rather than

copy cats.

Peter turns to the back page of a newspaper with photos depicting festive celebrations.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Why do the worshipers

believe the Goddess

can protect them? How

do we understand our

lives?

INT - STUDY - DAY

Peter works on his computer.

PETER (V.O.)

But our existence is

primal before we can

ponder our essence.

Some do need some

super beings to protect

them.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Only when we live can

we consider our essence-

what and who do we

want to be? And what

paths should we take?

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

We might be guided to

take a certain path,

believing the world and

us are created for a

reason. Life's easy.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Or we might take life

as it is, without attributing

any human values other

than the fact the we can

procreate. Life's also

easy.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

If we exercise our freedom

to bring about the kind

of universal or absolute

values we accept, such

as law, order and justice,

we've to be mindful that

we live and let live.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

If we just follow certain

authorities without any

independent thinking,

we might be fooling ourselves or be used

by other influencers

who might not have

the right solution to

the problem.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Take my life value on

creativity as an example.

If we don't stop copying,

how can we be creative?

To be creative, however,

is hard, making life difficult

to many. Years ago, some

fake creators wanted the

copyright law to condone

copying - using law to

cover their short-sighted

judgmental value -

legitimizing their own

morality.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

It's the populist kind of fake

analytics that no public legal

policy makers in their right

minds could accept.

Peter takes a look of the blog post's featured photo.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Like the Sakura patels, my

life is as light as feather.

Like the Sakura blossoms,

my life is fleeting away.

Sitting in a chair, Peter attempts to stand up with one leg and succeeds without any hiccup.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd) It might be that I can

still move around on

my own in the next 10.

years. Like the Sakura

pink, life has been

colourful to me, but

it will fade.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

In essence, I just live

every day as the last day

of my life now - in my

own meaningful way. It's

wonderful that I, chose

my own English name

as Peter, once existed!

A message popped up on the computer screen: "Your storage is low on space".

FADE OUT. The End
