There is nothing like the peace and serenity of the night. No other time of the day can remotely be as beautiful as the night. With the gleaming stars and the beautiful moon, the charm of the night cannot be dulled.
But I wonder, what if there was no night? What if the sun never went down?
Well, with the night gone, we would probably have a less accurate or perhaps no concept of time. We might go from one day to the next without realising it. Would we actually sleep at a pre-decided time which was something like an ancestral passdown?
I wonder how we would differentiate between all the days and years. I wonder how the world would function when there was no darkness to tell them that it is time to sleep. If there was no night, we would never see the twinkling stars. Would we still be aware of their presence?
My one stupid yet true concern in that life would be “When will I binge Netflix!!?!!?”
One thing that I am certain would not exist is probably the hundred photos I have of the night sky. If there was no night, would people not be scared of darkness anymore? Would our crime rates drop? Maybe the night’s disappearance would lessen the guts of criminals of the night. Maybe, we would be working 24 hours and the world would be a safer place.
Imagine having to figure out when to go to a nightclub or when to go to your office! Imagine not being able to see the beautiful fireworks in the night sky. Imagine not getting the memorable experience of staying up late just to stare at the stars, not being able to have the 3 AM conversations with your best friend.
There would be nothing like the nightlife left and we would all become a bit boring, I guess. We would probably come up with interesting alternatives!
This is just my vivid imagination and I would love to hear yours in the comment section. I do not have the answers for any of the above but I would love to find out!
Thank you for reading! See you next time!
