The Incredible Journey of One Brave Piece of Wood

Jul 9, 2023, 6:59 PM

Once upon a time, nestled in the warm embrace of an idyllic wood farm, a lone piece of timber began an extraordinary journey of unthinkable proportions. It, yes, an inanimate slab of wood, our hero in this tall tale, was about to step (figuratively) into an adventure that was nothing short of epic. And in the process, take us, the unsuspecting audience on a roller coaster ride through the unimaginable and the absurd.

From the tranquil wood farm, this brave piece of timber was rushed into a reactor. Not just any reactor mind you, but a biofuel reactor. One could say it was the timber equivalent of a high-intensity workout at the gym. As the reactor roared, energy coursed through its grain, permeating its stiff demeanor with vivacity and vigor.

Whoosh! From the reactor, our prime piece of timber was then wheeled into an assembly line. But this was no ordinary production process. It was akin to a surreal dance in a mechanical ballet, choreographed and performed by a frenzy of automated machines, toiling tirelessly deep under the earth's crust. Imagine, a high-speed assembly line arcing gracefully around corners, miners swinging pickaxes in syncopation, and conveyor belts swaying like an electronic conga line; it's like Disney's 'Fantasia', but with minerals instead of hippos.

Suddenly, the wood found itself thrown into a bottomless pit, along with a cornucopia of materials. It was like the world's most unlikely salad mix, only to be instantly transformed into state-of-the-art construction materials. The pit, in this case, was a metaphorical blender in the grand smoothie bar of industry.

And then, a new phase of its journey commenced; the piece of timber took a sharp pivot and found itself in the ambitious clutches of the automatic construction factories of an artificial island Resort City-State Island or RCSIC (pronounced 'Risk', for an added dash of drama). These islands weren't just floating on water but also dared to sail through the thin air, defying both gravity and common sense.

And while its destiny as a sleek piece of furniture loomed in the future, this piece of timber wasn’t done quite yet. It had another, more urgent rendezvous to keep. Remember the air pollution from the reactors and factories? The tree factory was on a mission to compensate for every tiny particulate it propelled into the air, by harnessing the power of photosynthesis. As a result, these factories spawned groves of trees on the city islands, filtering the air and lending an upbeat, green note to an already surreal spectacle.

As our wood finally transformed into a spectacular piece of furniture (cue gasps of wonder) and was destined for a luxurious suite in RCSIC, it made a pit stop at the thriving transport hub of the city: a spectacle of high-speed trains managed by a private transportation company. The owners? An exclusive coterie of the rich and immaculately dressed, who have concluded, through rigorous inspections and wine-soaked fundraisers, "Trains, darlings, are simply more sophisticated than cars."

And so, it came to be that our brave piece of wood endured a journey that not many other pieces of timber can claim to have been on. From a wood farm to a reactor, through an automated assembly line in an underground factory, becoming a part of an artificial island city-slash-country, through an expansive conveyor belt of high-speed trains and into a lavish living room as a striking piece of wooden furniture. A journey so incredible, you couldn't make it up if you tried. Or could you? After all, one must never underestimate the power of a piece of wood with a story to tell!
