Once upon a time there lived a spider in a cornfield. A big spider with a beautiful nest going around between corn stems. It became fat by eating all the insects that were trapped in its web. It really loved to live on that cornfield and planned to stay there forever.
One day, the spider caught a tiny insect on its web, and when this spider was about eat it, the insect said, “If you let me go, I will tell you an important thing that will save your life”.
The spider stopped for a moment and listened carefully.
“You better go from this cornfield,” said this tiny insect, “Harvest time already here!”
The spider smiled and said, ”What harvest time are you talking about? I think you just make up a story.”
But the tiny insect said, “Oh no, its true. The owner of this field will soon come to reap. All the corn stalk will be cut off and the corn will be gathered. You will be killed by a giant machine if you stay here.”
The spider answered, “I do not believe in harvest time or giant machine that will cut off the corn. How can you prove it?”
The tiny insect continued, “Look at those corns. Look how those corns were planted in ordered lines. That proves that this field was designed by somebody brilliant.”
The spider laughed and said, “This field has grown by its own and has no relationship with it's creator. Corns always grow like that.”
The insect explained more, “Oh no. This field is owned by an owner who planted it, the harvest time will be here soon.”
The spider grinned and said, “I do not believe,” and then ate the insect.
Few days later, the spider was laughing and remembered the tiny insect’s story. He thought, “Harvest. What a stupid idea. I am already here all my life and no body has disturbed me ever. I was here when the plants were just half meter tall from the ground, and will be here for the rest of my life, because nothing has changed on this field. Life is beautiful, and I will make it that way.”
The next day was a beautiful day on the cornfield. The sky was bright and there was no wind. That noon, when the spider walked, he suddenly realized thick dust coming his way. He heard the sound of a giant machine and asked himself, “What is happening?”
