20 A Trip to Parallel Worlds

A Trip to Parallel Worlds

Posted on June 2, 2011 by team

Parallel worlds do exist! Two of them are located in the Moscow Region. These are Barvikha and Skolkovo luxury villages, the places where Russian elite lives. It’s not easy to get there but still we managed to see a piece of these wonderful worlds.

The first world called Barvikha is inhabited by immortal beings who look very much like ordinary people. They go to the market…

Love their children…

Plant flowers.

And watch cartoons in their concert halls.

But the first impression is deceptive.

They are powerful demigods controlling the world. Their harsh guards prohibit to photograph the land on which they walk, threatening with the supreme keeper named the FSO (Federal Protective Service).

The used cars of 2004 with leaking oil and a tiny trunk that will not be able to travel on most roads of the world, here they cost more than 7 million rubles ($250 thousand).

The inhabitants of this world dress in strange attire and conduct rituals in SPA.

    Why don’t they have their roads fixed by a private company?

  2. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Wouldn’t look out of place in the USA at all.

  3. Bob Loblaw says:

    The cars are stolen from around the world, re-VINed by corrupt officials and resold for big $$$

    These are not parallel worlds. In any capitalist economic system, classes are an inevitable result. Inequality is inherent in capitalism. There is no justification for envy or bitterness because the people of the world have voted for capitalism by their rejection of progressive Socialism. Inequality and nationalism are the accepted realities. (And Cuba and D.P.R.K. are Stalinist, not socialist; China and Vietnam are state capitalist).
    Parallel worlds really exist in different spacetimes where matter is somewhere else (as well as here) due to quantum fluctuations or in “branes” where something totally different than matter will exist.

      A. Bunka here. The question here is: why don’t progressive Socialist states exist? (You don’t state that there are any, so, I assume you mean they do not exist.) They do not exist because progressive socialism under a marxist state is a fairy tale, a carrot for the masses to join the revolution. Then, when the people that promised a progressive socialist state come to power, and the promise never materializes, the powers that be impose totalitarianism. Please tell me what Marx and Engels and Lenin had to say about that?
      I am sure they will point the finger at “elements” of capitalism and blame the masses for it. I believe in spoonfuls of PS, like the GI Bill, or student loans. These are forms of socialism too, and generally, they work: why? because they are small and don’t try to micromanage the entire society.

        Welcome back!!

      • marxistworker says:

        The Soviet Union of the 1920s was a progressive Socialist State. Lenin believed a vanguard was needed in the early stages to coordinate things; therefore, the existence of a strong central government was necessary to harness the elites and educate the masses. It was a temporary, necessary state. Marx also saw the lumpenproletariat and uneducated workers as easily persuaded by reactionaries. Is that not the truth?? Communism is the end product of a long struggle.

        • Archy Bunka says:

          TU for your counterpoint. I disagree, the early years of the USSR were a complete mess. There may have been fanciful ideas floating around, but these ideas were vastly overshadowed by: death, disease, starvation and civil war. No person, even if they are pro=soviet, could have expected much from Russia and the empire at this time the country was in ruins, why do you believe this MW?
          I see no historical evidence to substantiate your claim that the USSR was a progressive socialist state before the rise of Stalin, none. How could it be? Even if there was nothing but good vibrations emanateing from the Kremlin, it was simply not economically, socially, or politically possible for the USSR to have achieved this.

    Not bad, but still bad roads.

    You noobs these are 2 of the newest malls, thats all, nothing “luxury” about them except of the brands. Look pretty much like any bug malls in moscow.

  7. Scott says:

    I think gated communities for the uber rich are a great idea – cos we can lock the gates and keep them in there come the revolution ;-)

    “Want some bread and water do you – well it’s out here now, look, and the poor are eating it!”

  8. kbr says:

    interesting, but nothing special. In communist-time such towns were all over Russia, now they have different names. Same old story, new cover :)

    These are not parallel worlds: they’re CGI. These places don’t exist outside a computer.

  10. Mike says:

    It’s all CGI – just rendered very well. If you can’t see it, just look at the human figures displayed in the picture below the comment starting “The used cars of 2004 with leaking oil…”

    They’re very obvious CGI creations.

  11. Mike says:

    First floor, projecting balcony: not a shop window, not shop dummies, but CGI-rendered “people”.

    The same figures are visible in the picture above the caption “Near the children’s shop…”

    But aside from that: nothing in reality looks like these pictures, not even when shot HDI. Only CGI produces that look.

    – not that I expect to persuade the unpersuadable, but someone might learn something from this comment.

    It’s all CGI, all these pictures.

      You’re either Trolling, need glasses or live in a “parallel world”. I’m a photographer and graphics artist. Do you think the unfinished tiles and the shovel are CGI too? What about the woman standing with her purse in picture 3?
