The Creator


"But this metro line is beautiful. Who created it?"

"A tunnel construction company."

"But they're not here."

"Yes, they've finished the work and they've been paid for it."

"So who's running it now?"

"The transport company."

"But who's the creator here?"

"You don't know, maybe the customer."

"But the client is not the intellectual author, is he?"

"I don't think so. It could be an engineering firm."

"So the creator is the contractor?"

"That's a philosophical question. Some say the creator is the one who made the tunnels. Others say the creator is the one who invented it. But some say it's the one who came up with the idea. I've heard voices who think it's the engineers. So you never know."

"But what do the newspapers say about it?"

"That it's not who the creator is, but that you can use it. And how you can use it."

"But then where do I say thank you?"

"Maybe to whoever paid for it all."

"Then there are many here who can call themselves creators."

"They all consider themselves so."

"Aren't they in conflict over this?"

"They're not. But people like you do. There are gangs who'll fight for what's right."

"But then everyone here is right."

"Yeah, I guess so. They're probably only interested in the fight, the cause is secondary."

"If the passengers get in trouble, is it worth calling the creator?"

"No, that's when the rescue teams come. And they really have nothing to do with whoever created all this."

"But who pleases you in the image of the creator?"

"The politicians."
