The Undocumented Legend of the Chair Wars
Before people, before animals, before life as we know it, Chairs were the primary species of this great planet. They lived open and free. There weren't any need for possessions or fuel for energy. They just existed, and they were happy with their lives, until...
One Chair stepped out and proclaimed their craving of purpose. It wanted to have a meaning in its life rather than the typical day to day roaming about without a care in the world. As much as the other Chairs tried to keep it quiet, the more pronounced the Chair became. Soon, there were other followers, buying into the idea of purpose. Those that were interested in a change were curious of exactly what purpose they could have. How could their lives have meaning and purpose.
The conflict that began, between the Chairs, began small, but escalated over years. As their feud continued, people began populating the planet. The Chairs that wanted meaning in their lives began fulfilling the purpose of aiding humans with a resting place; allowing the humans to pin them down while they relaxed. The opposing Chairs saw this as an insult. The constant argument between the two factions of Chairs quickly led to the Chair Wars.
The Chair Wars ended almost as quickly as they began, leaving many so battered and broken that their only purpose was to be discarded at nearby Chair cemeteries, usually marked by a tall standing structure or a mound of dirt. The purposefully-driven Chairs won the war, and today, many humans use them daily. Most of the fallen Chairs have broken away and decayed into new earth, but there are a few, like this one pictured above, that remain as a testament to a war that really didn't serve any purpose. It was kind of ironic, in the end. :)
Seriously, this photo shows the garbage that was left behind by a business that failed. Most everything was stuffed into this old barn, save a few items used by those that have found it. The barn is structurally failing now, and it won't be long before it falls and becomes one huge pile of of forgotten items that once, long ago, had a purpose.
I hope you enjoyed the trip through my imagination, sparked by this one picture.
Have a great day!
