I went to the local black market to buy me some cheap parts for
a little project I'm working on... when I just arrived I encountered
an old arab dude that sold Hungaric cubes, those little toys where
you turn the little cubes in order to make all cubes with same color
match on each side of the bigger cube... anyway, here's our conversation:
IF = me. AD = Arab Dude
IF: Whats up, what are you sellin'?
AD: Nothing for you
AD: I don't sell to Yahudee (the arab equal to dirty jew)
IF: who said I am a jew?
AD: you speak Hebrew very well
IF: true, but I have nothing against arabs, and I'm pretty sure
you want this *flashes 100 NIS bill*
AD: aahh *nods smiling* in that case I believe we can reach some
agreement, I sell these *getting one cube outta his pocket* this
toy is not for everyone
IF: how come?
AD: you have to use your brain to play it
IF: can you show me how to use it?
AD: *explaining while playing with the cube* get together all the
little cubes with the same color, that is your objective
IF: that looks easy, let me try...
At that point I found myself standing there for half hour trying
to get the pieces together, he laughed at me all this time...
IF: *sad and frustrated* I guess that toy is not for me...
AD: that's because you don't know what you're doing, all you do
is trying to reach your objective without knowing how, I can see
you are afraid to ask for my help
IF: can you help me?
AD: listen! you will never reach your objective if you blindly try
to combine the cubes!
IF: you have a better idea?
AD: if you want to win you have to use logic and put your feelings
aside, then, instead of frustration all you see is the will to succeed
in your mission!
IF: sounds good
AD: *very angry* don't speak! use your feelings to control yourself!
(look who's talkin'... ) you must forget your urge to throw away
the cube, instead try to work harder and you will get to the solution!
do you understand?!
IF: yeah sure, can I buy it now?
AD: Yahudee! All they see is money!
IF: *gulp* umm... sure... here's your cash, c'ya now!
When I returned home I opened up my computer and entered my favourite
site, memes.org! There, I saw a link with the title "a master-meme
to stop the war". sounds good to me, a few clicks after that
I'm in a page called OS-012...
The next few days went by very slowly... all I did was to sit in
my room, read OS-012 again and again, play my toy (without success),
and sleep... I had thoughts, about every event in my life, everything
I ever said, everything I ever did in those 19 years since I was
The day I decided I can see see the rest of the world again was
the day I succeeded in playing the toy as the arab suggested, his
words were getting a new meaning, between the day I got the toy
and the day I managed to 'get it', I learned about two types of
humans, those who give up and throw away the 'big cube' and those
who are willing to continue and rearrange the 'little cubes' over
and over until they finally 'get it' right...
As far as I'm concerned I used OS-012 to get those 'little cubes'
working together, I can finally look at the big cube and smile,
and I love it, I love it very VERY much
