An Upgrade

Much disappointed by their most complex creation so far, the Gods called for an immediate meeting. The design flaws of this creation had become undeniably evident. Once settled in a comfortable life, they got themselves busy with the absolutely unnecessary task of getting bored. And to overcome this boredom they completely overlooked the strict rules of self sustenance and procreation laid for them by the Gods. They started getting involved in self destructive activities to eradicate boredom and yet were seldom successful. As if this wasn't bad enough these creatures with their distorted state of mind, came up with ways to prevent procreation and got involved in futile sex for the sake of mere entertainment. Their minds had gone hay wired to the extent that they had started questioning the very purpose of what they were meant for.

Seeing the disastrous failure of their most ingenious design that they took pride in, the Gods realized that it was time to bring in the next version. After much consideration and arguments they settled down on the name "Zuzu" for their new creation. To avoid the inconvenience of being charged with breaking the copyright rules by their flawed creation and for the sake of originality, the Gods traveled back in time and coined the name.

The gods put in their best minds to work on this new creation. No single design flaw could be tolerated. For seven continuous days and nights they worked on this creation. Finally on the eighth day the Gods launched the "Zuzus".

This was the smartest creation ever to exist in the history of the Universe. With their high level of skill set and enormous intelligence it took them no time to create all favorable conditions for self sustenance.The main activities that this creature was involved were to to improve its ways of sustenance, to find better ways to energize itself and then to practice this task of re-energizing with food, sleep and physical exercise in the most optimum manner. This creature was involved in the act of sex only when a "Zuzu" expired in the family to create a new Zuzu and maintain a balance in population. The Zuzus did not waste any emotions on the Zuzus lost due to old age or in some rare case by some other disaster. In fact they almost never wasted any such emotions which negatively impacted their longevity. They were absolutely flawless and followed all the rules without any deviation. The most ingenuous enhancement was in the form of a button attached to each Zuzu. It gave these Zuzus the ability to turn off their minds when they were not busy with any of the activities meant for them and hence avoided the much dreaded boredom in their predecessors.
