To Write A crowd sourced, self evolving, Novel(story) on TED in 30 days. With the help of the best argumentative minds in every field.

Every age has its own circumstances and its own problems, we can not continue to follow all the centuries old religious stories to guide us in the complex, dynamic, ever evolving present.

I guess the current generation is feeling a lack of guidance, when stuck to something very basic and very core, when they faced with the dilemma of right and wrong everyone needs to chose from the "self formulated/ self perceived right or wrong".
(I know there is no absolute Right & Wrong, but most of the time we have to take a stand to move ahead).

Hence today I Invite all the inquisitive and the best minds of century, in every field, at this common place, TED to at least try to formulate the introduction of the story in the next 30 days. And i believe we will take this story somewhere because i have some ideas in mind.

Just a thought to scratch - " This could be the story of the "Real Universal God", who actually gave the opportunities(various mystique) to rule over the people as REGIONAL GODS and keep the people in control for the sake of Deep Ecology. And hence this whole story tries to explore his true intention towards THE UNIVERSE .

I know, i know ! it has been tried many a times before, but who knows This is the right time, it was waiting to reveal itself.

    “Don’t ever consider my ‘questions & point’ as ‘illogical or stupid’, because I may be using your answers for these questions in future to build a ladder to trap you deep”. - Said Morgan
    YES…Morgan was like that only.

    “We were three people in that confined space. To my north was sitting Morgan, his custom made white shining suit with a neck tie, decorated on his very firm body, gave me a taste of his relation between his skin & his personality. Morgan always had a smile on his face with a dynamic combination of ‘faith, love, fear & temptations’ as if welcoming us to join him.

    Aristo was enjoying imagining Morgan as Morgan freeman from Hollywood, and he was not wrong altogether as Morgan’s native origin and his grey hair from his head extending up to his French cut beard & not to forget his complementary deep voice, were having the same flare and charm as that of Morgan freeman.

    Aristo, I think Aristo had a bad habit of exchanging sides between Morgan and Me, but I believe he was just confused! Most of the time Aristo loves the idea of Morgan, only after when i share my ‘Always Self Alert methodology’, he stops exploring deep with Morgan. In a disappointing tone Morgan described Aristo in a line once as–“He, who always questions the direction towards the answer but is still afraid to take a leap of faith”.

    Bending on his brown leather sofa, keeping his elbows on his knees Morgan Continued- ‘There always was an ‘Ultimate Ulterior Purpose’ and now I feel it. His next statement was full of sound of helplessness -“It’s not specific, it’s a kind of a déjà-vu, it was always here in my head; and now I want to draw it specifically.
    There was an unanswered silence for next four and a half minutes.

    And in the end there was 'ME; i was the one who was willing to believe Ulterior purpose if you could prove logically
