For years, years, I wondered – ‘why me’ – you know, you know, kiddo – ‘why me’ – but there is no ‘why me’. What? As if there were, you know, ‘chosens’, there’s no ‘chosens’ – there’s no all–seeing, all–knowing powerful nothing. It happened. That’s it. I fell for it. I took its bait – hook, line, sinker. Didn’t I do it to myself? Wasn’t I the sucker? There’s no ‘why me’ – and once I realized that, that there was no, that there was no, no any kind of justice what so ever, until I acted, that gave my existence purpose. And now I’m gonna fulfill that purpose. I don’t want you getting involved. You’re deep enough as it is. Don’t be the sucker! – Bobby Mortaren; famous last words
I raced from the house to the hotel, at Walsenburg, where I struggled to make sense of everything that transpired. I poured myself over notes and records that I had brought along. Only my laptop’s glow illuminated the room. Every so often lights through I-25 swept across the bed. Every so often breezes stirred trees around the perimeter. Soon midnight passed. The world darkened, relaxing as it were into slumber. A knock rattled the door - and I could have shrieked if it weren’t for what remained of my nerves. All of a sudden, I felt so icy, so cold, that I stood, frozen, uncertain of how to proceed. Who was it? It couldn’t be good. Not the FBI. Not the Thules. Ache, already? I balked at chucking my laptop - whoever they were at the door, they’d find it, they’d find it. It’s the 21st century; evidence doesn’t vanish without a trace. As my heart pounded my chest, I reached that door and cracked it a notch. I braced for the kick certain to follow. It didn’t come. The hotel’s courtyard / lot spread, deserted except for my rented Wrangler. There wasn’t anyone - anyone who may have been my visitor. Yet - by my feet - at the edge of the threshold - my visitor had left a box. I poked at it with my pole and turned it over and over. It wasn’t postmarked. It wasn’t addressed. It had been delivered by hand and, suspecting what it was, I yanked it inside. Leaning onto and drooping against the door, I tore its lid. The box contained two floppies, a CD, and a stack paper. It was Blue Beelzebub - all of it, every part of it. As well as instructions: a How-To-Guide for destroying your future, fetched onto my doorstep, white-glove-style to boot, as promised. It may as well have been a bomb. ### How did Blue Beelzebub mutate into my obsession? Worse - did I expect to find its truth remarked into code from 1996? 1996! There wasn’t a lot to the internet way, way back when. But crime was crime no matter its era. Was it crime? And did the game start this way or that way then evolve into crime? Was it crime from its start? The programmer of Blue Beelzebub, a hacker by the avatar ‘ZuZu’, claimed to be legit. Their MO had been to create games not scams. Or so it appeared until Blue Beelzebub entered the story. If it were a product of malware, why had ZuZu devoted so much of their effort into its creation? Why had they boasted of the game’s nitty gritty details during its gestation? Why all of that trouble, if only a fraction of it would have been appreciated by those who played it? Even LVN, when they weren’t laundering bitcoin, expressed what may be described as passion for that game. Was it a game? By 1996 standards, its demos parlayed atrocious graphics and threadbare mechanics. The way it affected the player’s rig ensured nobody would be eager to replay it. The game passed every scan available yet it twisted the OS and hijacked the PC to serve as a node, a link into a yet-unknown and yet-unnamed network for purposes every bit as mysterious as the game itself. As I contemplated the reality of the situation, I settled onto the notion that that game may have been a gimmick to cover truly malevolent intentions. That had been the crux of LVN’s KickStarter and GoFundMe rackets - they always proposed plausible if lofty projects as if they were real, actual products people buy. However, case after case demonstrated that their pretense unraveled after scrutiny. Could it be, as far back as 1996, the creator(s) of Blue Beelzebub conceived of such a deception? FPS (of the type Blue Beelzebub reported to be) were the rage through the 90s. If so then their MO resembled that of a typical bait-and-switch scheme - bait them with a game, switch them with a virus. Then? What? Profit? ### In the summer of 2017, Czech authorities in conjunction with the EU, arrested LVN at their apartment south of Plzen. They seized the hacker’s laptop, PC, as well as their twenty thousand CD library. LVN was a hacker-for-fire; evidence presented at their arraignment demonstrated to the court that they had been paid by Russian and other Eastern European actors to pilfer bitcoin wallets. In addition to theft, the court entertained charges connected to a NiceHash heist of 64 million euros earlier that year. It was the breach of NiceHash’s security that brought my skills to the EU’s attention. For a few weeks, between March and May, I played my part to aid the investigation and the conviction of its mastermind. We discovered that the breach had been directed from inside NiceHash. We split the work: ‘brick and mortar’ detectives ran interviews and stakeouts while my fellow ‘white-hats’ and I toiled at the forensics. To meet our end of the bargain, we created a model of that cyber-attack, in order to construct and deconstruct its operation. As we realized how the crime had been executed, we identified the party responsible for it and built the authorities a solid chain-of-evidence - a chain-of-evidence that identified LVN as the perpetrator. LVN masterminded not just that NiceHash heist but a dozen scams at sites like KickStarter and GoFundMe. LVN traded exclusively through bitcoin. Their MO was to sow fake projects then to reap real funds submitted by backers - by backers who aimed to launder money via its exchange into bitcoin. Projects were advertised to those who sought the service; they were fraudulent through and through yet they appeared real enough to fool the maintainers of those sites and the public at large who may have been tricked by the scams. Under the supervision of the investigation at large, I pledged my dollars to a few of LVN’s projects, to see what the response would be. Soon, LVN and I exchanged emails. They wanted to speak face-to-face. In front of the experts, I played to type and gained access to a roster of services from that hacker-for-hire. As a result of the communication, the investigation brought into play anti trafficking & exploiting agencies from around the world and accelerated their goal to convict LVN. One of the projects LVN advertised didn’t fit into the mold in so far as it felt like a genuine hobby of theirs. LVN sought investors to fund their (re)development of a game, Blue Beelzebub. The project listed at KickStarter - removed but saved to my laptop - included a lightbox of images and demos as well as snippets of code. It discussed such esoterics as: updates to its physics engine and its video & audio renderer; upgrades to its arsenal and its gallery of foes; changing its play - expanding its levels and ditching its linearity. The details impressed me as they perplexed me. Why? I kept asking. What’s the idea? What’s the racket? Why create a game using twenty year old technology? I understood its esoterics perfectly for I came of age during the 90s. So much of what went into Blue Beelzebub felt familiar as it was familiar. An FPS - first person shooter - propelled by a fork of that fabled, 2.5D DOOM engine. Little wonder that its caps parlayed the look and feel of classic 90s PC games! Maybe it was yet another scam? Or - maybe - it was a hobby of a gamer / programmer? Could it be that LVN recalled those early DOS games and wanted to re-create the era? But that wasn’t everything. And as I mused & Googled I started to ask myself if there wasn’t more about Blue Beelzebub beyond the haze of my nostalgia. I failed to connect the dots although that did not shake the deja vu - somehow, someway, I recognized that game. ### Escape published my article about LVN’s conviction. Against the advice of my editor, I stalked its commentary, to see what, if anything, the story drew out of the woodwork. Its aside re: Blue Beelzebub attracted attention. I wasn’t surprised, to be honest, as I had inserted it into the text to draw reaction. And my rouse worked! But I wasn’t the only one who felt deja vu about the game. A commentator, who asked for anonymity, posted a link to 4CHAN about Blue Beelzebub. LVN had advertized the KickStarter for the game at a group devoted to indie developers. LVN never advertized their work at 4CHAN out of fear of exposure. So that thread where they didn’t ask for money confirmed my sense that it wasn’t, necessarily, a scam. As I scanned that thread, however, I realized what a rabbit-hole the business would be. After LVN’s post, anonymous replies went to and fro as they typically do. Then the tenor of the thread devolved into a war amongst those who were for vs. those who were against what LVN proposed to do with the game. It was a question about credit. At last - somebody revealed a truth I duly suspected of - that Blue Beelzebub wasn’t the work of LVN - that the game as it existed predated LVN by twenty years or so. The idea for Blue Beelzebub had floated about USENET c. 1995. The majority of the conversations extracted from the archives suggested that the game was vaporware. Its supporters countered that either a P/C or a DEMO existed and that a play-through had been uploaded to (early) YouTube. Everyone who added their opinion - pro & con - agreed that it was “inspired by Satan”, “took its cues from Crowley’s ‘Thelema’“, and that it included clips “replete with ever more corrupt” gore and snuff. A self-described player, whose rig they claimed had been “totaled” by the game, stated bluntly that it contained a “Chinese Sandwich”. Undeterred by the confusion, I kept at my search, ramming through the archives, pushing my way further back in time, from 1997 to 1995. USENET had been mirrored prior to its collapse yet its content was not indexed completely; a robust query of its posts required force and patience.... In spite of the odds, my effort worked, my persistence located the roots of Blue Beelzebub. It was a posted dated June 15, 1995 written by the game’s originator, a hacker by the name of ZuZu. According to their missive, they claimed to have produced “a proof of concept demo” for their “latest and greatest” game, Blue Beelzebub, and that it was “a legit game catering to those who worship and admire Lucifer and everything that stands for”. ZuZu listed, point by point, the substance of their creation. I wasn’t surprised to see, splattered across that post, the verbiage LVN usurped for their own advert. Except - they weren’t seeking funding. According to their missive, the game had been bankrolled “by entities of a foreign sort, who don’t want to be credited”. Rather, they were seeking “experts” willing to alpha & beta test the product. Blue Beelzebub and by extension ZuZu went rouge between 1997 and 2005. Then - October 31, 2005 - ZuZu submitted their last, known public statement. Broadcasted through their usual, over-the-top flamboyance, they wished for their “fans to learn and spread the word” that they “secured an exclusive”. They had convinced a devote of indie horror / FPS games to review Blue Beelzebub. The player they had snagged was famous for their day and their name I recognized as I read it. Bobby Mortaren - an internet pioneer par excellence. Mixing reviews and play-throughs together, his format had been lauded as visionary and just as imitated. Tweaked a bit by-the-by it continued to find use. His name, though, hadn’t been spoken of for a decade. Games had changed. Tastes had changed. He could have shifted into yet another venture so far as I knew. Mortaren posted his works to YouTube - to YouTube prior to its merger with Alphabet. As I considered the changes that transpired across the years, I wasn’t surprised to discover that all of my links to his works were dead. Eerily, though, it was impossible to locate his reviews directly via YouTube. So I tried Google and Bing. No result. Ditto with DuckDuckGo. Ditto with Wiki, SlideShare, BoardReader. Out of desperation I surfed into the remnants of Alta Vista - maybe its database saved the information? No. No. Futile - all of it. YouTube’s size was greater than USENET’s size. My task’s extent was altogether a colossal order of magnitude. If that which I pursued had not been deleted, then, it would be found ad finem omnia. So to dig further I opted for a quick & dirty hack - a bot. A bot scripted to sift and sort all YouTube’s content that matched keywords Mortaren and Blue Beelzebub. I ran it and waited for days then for weeks then for months. ### My extensive search corroborated the fact that Mortaren left the internet c. 2006. Assuming they may have continued via pseudonym, I enquired into the matter with colleagues who devoted themselves to games and / or to reviews. Only a few recognized their name; nobody was cognizant of their voice. An editor from ToplessRobot directed my attention to a defunct fansite’s messageboard where somebody asked why Mortaren vanished without a trace. To my shock, the reply was that Mortaren had been arrested by the FBI c. 2006. I could not fathom why. Nevertheless, if the revelation were correct, then, the resolution to the matter was tantalizingly viable. Arrests - and trials - were public. The LVN / EU case brought my forensic skills to the notice of the DOJ and the Treasury / Secret Service. The FBI, like its European counterparts, wanted to understand everything about bitcoin and how it might (might) be possible to trace transactions to individuals. As part of my freelance work, I already met and debriefed FBI agents re: the Czech hacker. Eventually ‘large’ talk gave way to ‘small’ talk amongst us. It was at that juncture that I broached the subject of Blue Beelzebub - namely, that LVN hatched a scheme to defraud investors (via bitcoin) ostensibly by promising to develop an update to that game. “They got exposed by players who recognized the game’s ill-repute,” I stated. “Apparently, the game’s infamy started after its reviewer, a fellow by the name of - er - Robby Mortaren? Bobby Mortaren? Well - they got arrested by the FBI.” Neither the game nor the reviewer elicited a reply - immediately, anyhow. A (censored) document, summarizing a DOJ investigation, worked its way into my mailbox. Mortaren had been under FBI surveillance from November 2005 to May 2006. Why wasn’t stated; just that the FBI obtained search warrants for computers & electronics. A federal judge issued an arrest warrant May 30, 2006; however, the DOJ withdrew the charges after Mortaren agreed to an immunity deal. Mortaren turned star witness at a trial that involved organized crime as well as rackets, cults, ritualized human & civil rights abuses and elements that suggested Satanism. The perpetrator(s) that the DOJ wanted to convict fled either to South America OR Eastern Europe / Central Asia. The trial evaporated; neither the charges nor the perpetrator(s) were detailed. Mortaren’s immunity deal with the DOJ wasn’t negotiable or retractable and included a complete internet ban. The document listed a PO BOX as Mortaren’s permanent address.
To Mr. B. Mortaren: Sir, I apologize. Blue Beelzebub. Were it not for the fact that you may be the only person left to recall that game, I would not have stretched my resources so thin to find you. If you are not able to assist my research, is anyone? I was part of an EU investigation re: bitcoin, theft & fraud, as well as trafficking & exploiting vagrants. Through that investigation I came into contact with a hacker; they claimed to be working on Blue Beelzebub; they sought funds to upgrade it. While disturbing to say the least, that game did not strike me as part of the hacker’s MO. So I pried further into the matter and discovered, to my astonishment, that Blue Beelzebub dated to the mid 90s and that you reviewed & posted the demo at YouTube. I am curious about that game. I cannot get it out of my head. Who was the programmer? Who was the developer? Where did they get the money? What were their goals? What was the game about, if the game was about anything? A DOJ document summarizing your immunity from prosecution was brought to my attention. I suspected, as I matched the timeframe of the FBI’s surveillance and arrest, to the demo, that these matters are related. I was not able to find a link, due to the fact that all records, transcripts, etc., were sealed by request of the FBI. If, for any reason what so ever, we cannot communicate about this matter, would it be possible to contact a surrogate or anybody with the information I seek? With All Due Respect JK
### Due to limits that existed at YouTube’s debut, videos posted from 2005 to 2010 were capped to 10 minutes. Both image and sound playback quality were kept low to spare bandwidth. A lack of (accessible) software and hardware to edit video forced vloggers to improvise. Mortaren had always used a webcam and mic from the 90s to shot their videos ‘live’, i.e., without edits. YouTube retained the majority of Mortaren’s content; however, after a check of the dates and the poster’s IDs, I determined that Mortaren’s videos had been reposted c. 2006 by another user. If the titles / numbers were correct then there were seven parts to the demo Mortaren recorded for Blue Beelzebub. Of seven, six remained. Specifically, the 5ifth - which must have been filmed as evidenced by the discontinuity between 4ourth and 6ixth - defied my ability to trace. The reposter stated that “the 5ifth wasn’t part of the review package”. Yet, as I perused copies of replies they had saved, commentary that referenced material that doesn’t appear anywhere else, I strongly suspected that a 5ifth had been posted for a while and, for whatever reason, Mortaren removed it prior to 2006. 1irst - details facts re: the game: the developer, the programmer, the system requirements, etc. “If your rig’s able to run DOOM, Blue Beelzebub works,” they state then add: “although, prepare yourselves, kiddos, the game takes a very, very long time to install”. Passingly, he adds that a fan of his had ditched the game after they experienced “a catastrophic system failure” that they blamed “on either a bug or a virus or both”. The executable and its auxiliary files pass every virus and malware checker Mortaren throws at it. 2econd & 3hird - demonstrates the game play or what passes for it. Mortaren prefers to record his reviews live so that his fans experience the game exactly as he does. His videos contain hints / cheats if they are discovered as he plays. He describes Blue Beelzebub as a DOOM-GUY-ESQUE player who moves through an enshadowed monochromatic maze. “There’s no backwards, I, I, I don’t believe it! Did they forget to give us backwards? There’s forwards and left, right. Kiddos, you gotta do a circle to go backwards.” He continues to berate the game, adding: “Yeah, there’s only forwards. And you know, I gotta say it, the programmer may think they’re the money’s nuts for it.... But it’s so weird that going forwards causes the view to bob up and down or side to side. What’re they trying to do? Are they trying to replicate a player’s gait? Takes me right out of the game. Let me tell y’all why. Like I said, the programmer’s got to be thinking they’re the monkey’s nuts but it’s that bizarro attention to detail that’s so jarring as I consider the lack of detail given to the graphics. Guys. Guys. Guys. You gotta think about what you present.” Mortaren piles his criticism of the graphics and the sounds, comparing both unfavorably to DOOM. Especially frustrating is the invariance of the black & white textures throughout the maze. He praises the response of the maze to the player as he notes, while attempting to draw the maze, that its passages shift at random. Then more and more criticisms were strewn at the game, including its lack of weaponry, its lack of powerups / extras, its lack of anything. “A game can’t be about going through the maze, guys, there’s got to be a point - something to do!” Finally, he voices the suspicion that he had been duped by ZuZu. 4ourth - the demo gets interesting. Mortaren finds an area of the maze where the textures differ. The video’s pixilation - perhaps due to the webcam - perhaps due to the way the reposter preserved it - masks the bulk of the alteration. I detect a change of shade, though, from black & white to blue. “Well it can’t be for nothing that the wall is blue. Jeez!” As he cracks the joke, to his shock (an explicative slips), the sounds became those of “eerie, drone-like notes fading into reverb” and the monitor displays a still-shot. Mortaren zooms into the image; I recognize it as coming from the shock-site, ROTTEN. After that alteration, every blue-hued texture Mortaren faces produces other images, increasingly nihilistic and graphic, usually of the dead or the dying, often of celebrities, suicides, accidents, wrecks. 5ifth - ? 6ixth - the segment starts at an awkward jump. It must have been split from the 5ifth video and while Mortaren does not state why, explicitly, the tone of the voice suggests that something serious transpired. “Sorry, kiddos, I turned the webcam away - a first - I guess this ZuZu accomplished something.” When he returns the webcam to the monitor, it is apparent that in addition to tone the substance of the game itself altered. The player stands at the center of a room Mortaren describes as “a vault with a hole at its floor”. The 2.5D renderer prevents the player from gazing inside the hole. But by directing the player to walk the hole’s circumference it is possible to catch bits of its contents. A sharp, blue light shoots out of the hole; the way it cast light at the ceiling suggests there might have been “water”, as if the hole were a well of sorts. What shocks Mortaren is that the room fills with children. The renderings of faces make each of the children unique. However: “the ghastliness of the imagery resembles how faces voxilate like with Delta Force games”. Further, he notes, after a pause that echoes my own consternation and trepidation, “I’ve seen these kids. Yeah, I’ve seen these kids from those, those photographs the game stopped everything to show us. Jeez!” The children stand statue-like as the player walks about them. They serve as obstacles that block movement, otherwise, inert, unresponsive, “not that the player interacts with the kids as there’s no other keys available except A, W, D”. The video continues, then, Mortaren shrieks. The playback jostles as if it were about to stop. When everything resettles, he speaks, calmly and evenly, that “there’s a kid that’s different ... animated. You gotta see it, kiddos, I can’t say if it’s awful because it’s awful or if it’s awful because it’s awful....” The webcam zooms into the monitor; the child rendering appears to show it breathing, haphazardly, with their mouth agape. And then, then the child moves and the player like the viewer alike slip an explicative. “I take it back, everything, this is truly and utterly awful.” 7eventh - the coda feels like the set’s longest but is the shortest. “Right now I’m running. I don’t have a weapon, jeez! I’m running as fast as this keyboard allows but my health is shrinking.” Mortaren stops and rotates the player to face backwards. The animated child is behind and striking the player using a technique that resembles “Hanna-Barbera laziness - or who knows - who knows, kiddos, it could be part of the style”. Just as it is with DOOM, as the player’s health decreases, the view gets redder and the avatar gets bloodier. Mortaren aims into the maze; there is no exit, there is no weapon, no upgrade to assist, all that exists is the floor where the player drops, dead. The 7eventh adds a post-script recorded after the demo. It shows Mortaren’s PC, open and split to pieces. “The game installed a virus,” he declared then described its symptoms. “Immediately upon my player’s death, the PC rebooted. After the BIOS, instead of going into DOS, it starts a telnet session and tries to connect via IP. Of course it doesn’t get a reply since my PC uses dial-up. So it freezes, pinging and pinging a server somewhere that it cannot reach.” Mortaren concludes by theorizing that if Blue Beelzebub were a virus, it must have been designed to target high-end systems with LAN / Ethernet ports. I jot the IP and attempt to connect to it. Strangely, it will not load yet it will not issue an error of any kind. Chrome, FireFox, Edge, etc., freeze. WHOIS is not able to resolve the owner. Nevertheless, it yields the location of the server, a site approximately 50 miles north east of Trinidad, Colorado. I reject the result; users of tracers already know that they rely on ISP databases to match IP / location - and how often are those databases updated? - and how often are those updates distributed? The decade that passed between today and the video, and between the video and the creation, assures that there must have been a drift re: the location of the IP. ### I will not reveal the particulars of when, where, and how I received the call. “The coordinates.” Into my ear spoke a voice that my investigation made familiar. “Check the coordinates.” “Coordinates?” “Blue Beelzebub.” “Yes,” I replied and Mortaren implied we’d meet. Mortaren had traced my whereabouts through the blogosphere. He wanted to talk about the game yet feared the government “and or others” eavesdropping. I admitted off-handedly that as I sunk into my work with the DOJ, my paranoia tipped. “What’s the deal with the game, anyway?” “What do you want on your Chinese Sandwich?” My impression settled onto a mixture of intrigue and trepidation. The matter felt so cryptic as to defy credulity. Coordinates? Blue Beelzebub. Chinese Sandwich? Nevertheless, even as we talked (brief as the conversation was) I put together that by coordinates + Blue Beelzebub Mortaren referred to the IP the game telnet’ed.
THE BLUEPRINT FOR FIXING AMERICA SOONER RATHER THAN AFTER IT IS TOO LATE
BEFORE going further with this, bear in mind it was a response to the previous post "WHAT IF LIBERTY WAS ATTACHED TO HUMANITY" and perhaps one might read that long list of QUESTIONS FOR HUMANITY before diving into issues on how one might repair our corner of the world...onward... Some people claim we are beyond a "tipping point" of no return. This analysis is commonly applied to global warming to describe the melting permafrost that is releasing methane gas which is believed to be 100 times more potent and lasting than carbon dioxide in causing global warming from the greenhouse effect. Others apply the "tipping point" idea to America's national debt; stating that if we switched from our fiat currency back to a gold standard, we couldn't pay off the interest, let alone our debt, based on current exports and GDP figures. Therefore, we have become a patently bankrupt nation contrary to the principles Thomas Jefferson and others warned us to follow to avoid the use of credit. A bankrupt America in a world of currencies based on a tangible asset like gold or levels of exports would be unable to purchase oil to feed our pathetic industries, let alone our levels of consumer consumption of energy. I managed to get through 2016 without using a drop of petroleum, propane or any other non-renewable source of energy. I studied and invested in solar and wind and it took me more than a decade to select and test the appliances, like a low wattage crock pot placed in an insulated cooler, to learn how to maximize my ability to live on minimal power. Americans don't have a decade to spare. Denmark did it well. They invested in wind and now boast regions with little or no use for petroleum; which is at the heart of both global environmental destruction, loss of rainforests, pollution of rivers, oceans, aquifers and war, which leaves its own lasting toxic landscape, enormous national debt, widespread death, loss of culture, physical and emotional scars. If poor little Denmark can cure its ills, why can't America accelerate our transition to renewables, save a bundle along the way and reduce our desire or need to engage in wars related to acquiring petroleum reserves, or our need to retain a fiat currency required to fund wars, oil purchases, bribe foreign officials and our own elected leaders. If the spigot of free money were removed, would America be as corrupt as it is today, or as destructive worldwide, as we've become? I believe part of the "Blueprint for fixing America" involves ridding ourselves of the patently corrupt, financially inept Federal Reserve and if possible, dismantling the BIS, IMF and World Bank, or at the least, installing a series of common sense policies to both upgrade these systems, regulate their actions through intelligent policies designed by a political body that relies on both public opinion through debates and analysis of performance driven QC metrics. The system of printing treasuries and taxing citizens was born, not from political debate or even a public vote, but by a small corrupt group in Congress and our banking system a century ago. It has failed to produce a healthy, debt free nation; the imperialism it funded has failed to produce a healthy, democratic, environmentally sustainable world, or even a world that views America as a true democracy, rather than the brutish arm of global corporations, and it has failed to produce a stronger middle class in America. Therefore, after 100 years of failures, perhaps it is time to replace the defective financial systems and taxes which fund defective military campaigns and patently defective, if not murderous systems of politics. What will replace "fiat currencies" remains to be seen, though models based on gold, silver and copper seemed to work pretty well before, and future models, such as bitcoin, or credits based on real production of exports, or levels of kwh power from renewables might also prove viable; something, anything, based on a real, tangible asset would be an improvement as it would eliminate the ability of a corrupt banker to simply press a button, create money from thin air, instantly indebting citizens of a nation seen as instant inflation, and then instantly buy their land or bribe their politicians: A person, corporation or group utilizing money for illegal activities would have to actually perform some kind of work to acquire it. Not so the case today. Whether it is to fix our energy policies, our role of the military in global affairs, our rapidly deteriorating environment, rapidly expanding levels of poverty, homelessness or levels of toxins we are exposed to either from the environment or self-ingested through legal and illegal drugs, our rapidly deteriorating mental health, intellectual capacity, shrinking middle class and standard of living; no matter what the policy is in America that needs to be changed, we aren't changing fast enough. We are like a deer caught in the headlights of a speeding automobile. The revelations of just how corrupt and dysfunctional our government, political and economic systems are has only recently been exposed to those who will study and analyze the evidence, and its so shocking they are either paralyzed or ineffective in bringing about effective change. You can't blame them too much. Faced with a new huge problem we really weren't aware of 20 years ago, and now faced with the prospect of trying to educate a sufficient body of Americans to create the change we must, the proponents for change stumble around testing different solutions; and more often than not, they fail. That is expected. Democracy as proposed by our Founding Fathers was the first of its kind and is an experiment. Experiments don't always work as planned; usually they do not. The trick in this democratic experiment is to recover before its too late. Whether or not we are past a tipping point is somewhat irrelevant as long as we don't give up. We must continue to innovate, to remain optimistic that we can and will prevail; and remain dedicated to the idea that our form of democracy can be shaped into a true popular democracy where every voice counts, where corporations cannot sway us from an honorable path, where people in other nations can become proud in their own quest to emulate our experiment in democracy without the need for our military to force our current corrupt brand of democracy on their citizens. That process has only exposed our defects to a wider geographic landscape and hardened the resolve of many citizens against mirroring America's brand of democracy. As that resistance continues to increase, our military will find it increasingly difficult to find willing souls in each nation who will undermine governments; and therefore our military and corrupt corporate agenda will need to employ hired guns to execute agendas; witness ISIS and CIA funding to topple Syria. In the old days it was easy to find citizens within a nation who were eager to bring American ideals to overthrow a brutal dictator. Today, the people of Syria living under a patently defective leader would prefer that brand of freedom to anything an "American Democracy" might represent. Today, the American brand of Democracy, as a valued export for nations to acquire, is worth less than toxic toilet paper. Dumping nuclear waste on a foreign nation would be less harmful and they know it. Its not that the original design of our democracy was either dishonorable, nor was it a bad idea or even poorly designed. In its day it was brilliant and even today it is far superior to the democracy Americans live with daily. We don't have a real voice in the process of electing our President, nor do we have a real voice in the way Congress operates, nor a real voice in the various emerging "secret courts" that increasingly preside over the actions of citizens, nor a real voice in public spending policies that are bankrupting future generations who have even less, if any voice, even faster than they are bankrupting current generations of our young in their 20's, who are far poorer than the older generation who at least had a chance at home ownership and developing a profitable business under some "free", "capitalistic", "market driven" middle class system that is all but gone in America today. What we are witnessing is not only a rapidly shrinking middle class and rapidly expanding population of impoverished, but a rapidly evaporating system of democracy, rapid expansion of our national debt and destruction of the global environment all taking place at the same time. Its an interlocking series of events that are quite telling in their synergistic effect on each other, yet complex enough to defy our ability to manage today's crisis du jure, let alone plan and execute an intelligent series of steps to bring a halt to these grave trends and thereafter, create a thriving, financially solvent, reasonably moral, non-violent America that can again become a shining beacon of Democracy for all the world to emulate without force; rather by simply becoming envious of our prosperity and the success of our middle class. Today, any envy foreigners might hold for American ideals are primarily focused on the celebs, and a level of wealth, few global citizens will ever attain; nor should they try. The lifestyle of the rich and famous is patently unsustainable and not very good for the financial health of a nation or the environment. Wealth in and of itself is no more evil than a car used in a bank robbery. Wealth, when properly applied can build schools, buy solar panels or wind turbines, or create innovative R&D facilities to invent new technologies that can foster new businesses and provide more Yankee exports. On the other hand, wealth applied to bribe politicians, build leaky oil pipelines or systems that pollute groundwater, or simply to buy a $50,000 dress for a Grammy Award ceremony is dangerous, destructive folly. Therefore, part of the path out of this mess needs to be a sense of modesty and reality based on what we've learned in the past 200 years about gross decadence and the ability of large groups of citizens to become easily hypnotized by fabulous levels of wealth most of them will never attain. Perhaps in a class entitled Personal Econ 101 we should both encourage people to develop ideas, invent, market, sell and manage a personal business, and include a section on prudent personal policies on how to manage their new found wealth; race tracks, casinos, bars and brothels are probably not good habits to hold if you expect to build and retain a thriving business, or nurture a reasonably sane, healthy family to carry your business and wealth forward to future generations. Teaching kids in any nation to acquire wealth merely so they can buy a new black beamer is not conducive to creating a sustainable society, sustainable financial policies, a sustainable environment, nor a sustainable government or society. Modesty, education and the prudent application of technology, financial resources, labor and mined or manufactured assets all have their place in creating a sustainable world or fixing what ails America and the world today. It is unfortunate, though easily predictable, that current generations all around the planet have generally lost all hope in obtaining that kind of world. They understand the government corruption; they see through the American Democratic farse and in their minds, if that enlightened nation is but a brutish scam based on corrupt political figures, extortion and murder, what hope does any human have of finding any peace or prosperity in any land? The result is an increasingly predatory nature of our tweens, teens, young adults and even middle aged folks who should know better, but are almost just as selfish and short-sighted as the desensitized generations raised on bloody TV and video games. Murder isn't really so bad as long as you're on the right side of the barrel; its expected in today's world. Get over it. We have become a mentally sick species destined to extinction if we don't change that attitude. We are living in the 6th great extinction and there is no guarantee our species will survive the process; in fact, some historians and anthropologists note there is a group of wealthy elite who are encouraging a mass die off to bring the human population down to 100M to perhaps 1B from the 7B level today. Perhaps we should let them proceed. Perhaps the earth will be better off after that horror show is over; but the really big question then becomes, if that sick group who would wage global genocide and continued environmental destruction to accomplish their agenda is the primary ruling elite after the bloodbath, what sort of future for habitats, let alone our own species, can we expect from that twisted group? Its another global problem staring us, the educated, enlightened 21st Century Human in the face, like headlights in the eyes of a deer; and we just don't have all the answers required to put humanity and the planet, or even our own nation, back on a predictable, moral, ethical, sustainable course. And so life in the 21st Century has become a giant hedonistic free-for-all suicide party; the population of predators and sociopaths is growing at a logarithmic rate, while those who would embrace charitable or democratic ideals are quickly being marginalized, or easily used and abused by those with power and money to do so. I personally believe the only way to halt, then reverse these dire trends is for the few remaining souls with a moral compass to unite and develop an action plan to first fix America. But with so many internal challenges, and personality conflicts even between "good souls"; we have failed to unite, we have failed to even be able to clearly identify people of moral fiber, as the many wolves in sheep's clothing are all around us. Recently I did a cursory audit of a huge, wealthy environmental group aimed at "saving dolphins, oceans and the environment", and found they had neither the wisdom to create prudent policies, nor any real effective activity, save their ability to sell t-shirts and expand their member base and revenue streams; very sad. And so the blueprint to cure America must include QC metrics; how many kids passed a high level math test as a result of your after school, charter school or public school program? How many of them are employed while in college because they clearly understand the student loan program in the U.S. is a patently defective system designed to enslave them? How many understand that trappings of financial slavery and are attempting to live intelligently within their modest means, rather than "...spend money they don't have for things they don't need." (George Carlin). We need to teach our young that the hypnotic glitz and glamour of the celebs and elite is not nearly as nourishing as a camping trip to a pristine forest that we need to keep pristine. We need to teach them that throwing money at an environmental charity is not quite as effective as simply picking up your trash, as well as some extra trash when visiting a beach. We need to teach them that car pooling is both fun and profitable, and we need to teach them that mending clothing to squeeze the last day out of a pair of shorts can be financially more sustainable and even a lot sexier than trying to acquire a $500 leather jacket, or 7 inch plastic pump cowboy boots. We need to find our roots as a blue collar worker, and Ag sector economy, rather than a nation of dog walkers, maids and gardeners serving the wealthy. Unfortunately, the population of families able to make a living in the Ag sector is also vaporizing, due to regs related to GMO seeds and USDA policies that have almost eliminated the ability of small farmers to survive. Meanwhile, our blue collar "MAKE SOMETHING USEFUL" jobs are all being outsourced to overseas sweat shops, as are our innovative White Collar Silicon Valley jobs in a world of a rising population of programmers, leaving only a dwindling white collar sector of financial management jobs (who produce few if any useful, tangible, sustainable products we really need, save a thriving toxic derivative market), and a bunch of dog walkers and real estate agents who only sell what already existed; a bit of dirt with some wood and a splash of new paint - the American Home - which is a center for consumption, doesn't actually produce anything useful, including intelligent, caring, charitable kids with any sort of skill set required to fix our nation, let alone our planet. I know of mothers who are so so so proud their son or daughter is a top notch dance champion, and as a musician, I am proud to be able to play rock, jazz or classical piano pieces, even sometimes at public gigs, but if I didn't make something tangible, useful, sustainable during the bulk of the hours in my week I'd feel useless; I'd just be another consumer instead of someone who manufactures SOMETHING tangible that others can use to both improve their standard of living, and reduce their impact on the environment. Folks who install solar panels do that sort of "honorable, ethical, blue collar work". Granted, they aren't manufacturing something, but at least they are doing some work that leaves a real, tangible asset on a structure that has the immediate effect of reducing America's reliance on petroleum; and that has long-term, positive financial and environmental consequences for the family, community and nation. Turning back to our stellar "Entertainer" kids, or kids studying to become real estate agents, you have to wonder if those grads will be surprised when they wind up as baggers at a grocery store trying to pay down a student loan that will never end, while paying off child support payments for kids they couldn't afford, nor spent time with to educate them on what mistakes to avoid, (nor ever went camping with them to teach them the value of minimalism, or pristine environments), while paying for social programs like Social Security and Obamacare our poor, bankrupt nation that exports almost nothing simply cannot afford. I praise our artists for their studious habits and wonderfully inspiring productions, cutting edge journalism and screen plays that cause us to reflect on ourselves and humanities journey through time; but with an overwhelming onslaught of advertising, high fashion, porn and violence, it might be prudent for every artist to also hold down a "day job", at least part-time, that actually contributed to creating a more financial, environmental and ethically solvent America. Even a part-time daily contribution by every breathing American towards these objectives might help reverse dire trends and create a united population of educated citizens who both care and are doing something constructive to counter-balance our highly destructive, unsustainable way of life today. Parents and schools need to educate kids on balancing selfish, personal agendas with activities that contribute to society in real, tangible production of products and services focused on deploying technologies that move America towards curing our ills before the "tipping point" trends running amuck today topple us over. The "Stockdale Principle" outlined in the book Good To Great embodies some of these ideals; taking a harsh, honest audit of where we are today and then designing effective management plans to get through the horrid state of affairs and emerge victorious through action based on optimism, and not Pollyanna optimism alone, nor on a fatalistic, hedonistic, careless, if not predatory attitude that seems to enshrine American values at every level of our society. A little discipline is a good thing, when balanced with creative abandon to invent something no one has seen before. A champagne party to celebrate a financial victory is probably also a good thing, IF - key word - you actually accomplished something that helps heal the world or provided some relief to your local community, our nation or a wetlands marsh. Drinking champagne every Sunday morning or buying a new pair of 7 inch plastic pumps just because your debit/credit card allowed it, and you think you deserve it after a 60 hour work week, is a rather short-sighted, if not myopic way of life based on endless consumption, that ignores the increasingly pressing problems of your life, your local community and the global village we all share. Perhaps that $10.00 price you paid for that cocktail might have made a difference had you had saved it to buy a PC keyboard for a child without a computer. Perhaps that $49.00 price for those dress shoes you didn't really need would have been better spent on buying a motherboard for a kid who could learn to install that board into a recycled, dented desktop case, then plug in that new keyboard you also bought them, and build their own PC, complete with a recycled monitor that was headed for a landfill and is now part of a child's at-home education system. Perhaps the parent in that home might remind their child with prudent guidance, that WHEN their math homework was done, THEN they can spend a short time playing some video game on that PC, before they move on to complete their history and science homework, and further remind them that if they fail to keep their grades up, that suite of video games can be uninstalled or blocked altogether. Perhaps instead of turning on the TV to gather the family, which only serves to fracture the family after kids begin wanting consumer items they can't afford, so they begin exploring methods of acquiring capital, like drug dealing in alleys, parents would leave the TV off and focus their energy on helping their kids get through those homework assignments, learn a little math, science and history along the way, learn what it means to create a sustainable home, community and financially solvent nation, and clearly learn what happens if we do not. Perhaps if more parents spent more time educating their kids, and got smarter along the way, more American adults would realize just how under water our nation is, and with some hope derived from that education, learn to fix the mess in their own lives one step at a time. Its a tall order and I am not sure Americans are willing to give up their baseball games or detective dramas in exchange for spending several hours each evening exploring socially relevant topics; whether political, scientific, or even charitable. But if American consumers don't modify their behavior and levels of consumption, and their hit list of acquisitions, most of which are unattainable due to our shrinking middle class and utter lack of any export industry able to finance our debt without utilizing our defective, bankrupt, imploding global system of fiat currencies; there is no hope for the generation that follows who will repeat the same mistakes because they don't know any better, or weren't educated soon enough to avoid those same mistakes. The painful truth is that as our society finds it increasingly difficult to acquire these sought after luxuries, and we continue to plunge into the financial abyss and political chaos of a third-world nation, we will have both blown the once-in-a-species democratic experiment, and our own ingenious potential to both cure our nation and help heal the planet torn by the industrial age and environmental destruction that is the legacy of a petroleum age. Petroleum was a blessing and a curse. It allowed a great global brain trust of 7 billion to be created and all the wonderful technology that mass invented, along with 7 billion mouths to feed and feet to shoe, who unfortunately also want 7 billion shiny black beamers we can't afford to build, let alone fuel. Elon Musk of Tesla once said to build 500,000 EV's would require all the lithium the planet can produce. Therefore, we need to invent and deploy another alternative and do so quickly, and while we're at it, utilize simple, affordable, practical technologies and habits like car pooling, mass transit and shopping only for what we really need, while recycling as much as possible, and ensuring our time spent is focused on educating our young so they don't make the same mistakes our generation did. All of these fundamental changes are part of healing America and the planet we all share and whether or not we do it or embrace it, the reality is this Spartan lifestyle IS coming sooner, rather than later, to every community on earth. Get used to it. Get used to the pain of rapid change and a deteriorating social fabric, social services, a rise in unethical, predatory conduct on every front, and a high risk for a rapid implosion and die off of humanity that will be horrific. This IS our future if we do not mend our ways and no amount of technology can save us from wanton, unbridled consumerism, or our universal tendency to ignore harsh realities. A little discipline and practical, effective planning, balanced with our artistic, humanitarian and spiritual agendas is required. So, curing what ails America is a complex idea that won't be completed by simply electing another corrupt official. You can't cure America by electing a new Mayor, Governor, Congressman or President. You won't accomplish it by switching banks or moving to a community sponsored credit union. You won't do it by simply installing solar on your roof and then pouring yourself a glass of champagne to celebrate the money you'll save on your electric bill or patting yourself on the back for reducing your need for petroleum, nor should you put the money you might save by car pooling into a fund for your annual trip to a Vegas casino where you can blow it in a weekend of heated hedonistic abandon. That sort of wreckless behavior might make sense to a 20 something kid who has never dropped five grand on a crap table, but in today's world that population of wealthy empowered young is also evaporating, and for the rest of us, prudence should guide nearly every action on this high wire act of trying to save humanity from itself. One good mistake, or worse, a continued series of imprudent mistakes, is all that is required to blow our last chance to avert the economic storm already at our door. In fact we don't even need to make a mistake; just continue on as we are doing today and there is little hope of any real, effective change for the better anything in the next 100 - 500 years of humanity's journey on this earth. Since much of this transformation must embody fundamental changes in how our federal government operates and the QC metrics that need to be installed to change its underlying principles of operation, bloated budgets, imperialistic campaigns and lack of focus on improving the plight of America's middle class, let alone provide much relief for America's impoverished, I suggest that a huge part of "the cure" involves finding and installing politicians who can "Get 'er done". We haven't seen anything like that anywhere in America for several decades, if not for more than a century. Sure, there are a few rare politicians who actually have a reasonably solvent, financially prudent, moral, ethical, perhaps even legal game plan, but they are quickly overwhelmed and marginalized, frustrated or assassinated, or through some other means, ejected from office; a process which leaves only the corrupt or inept left behind. This begs the question, "Would America's recovery be accelerated if a popular driven vote of no confidence by citizens could quickly remove politician's from office?" I don't mean impeaching a President after a billion dollar televised trial that requires Congress to stop dead in its tracks to handle a process that distracts them from more critical resolutions, rather I mean that if 60%, 70%, 80% or more Americans were polled each month, and were found to absolutely PRESS THE REJECT BUTTON, then the President in the Oval Office bowed out on Friday, the V.P. took the hot seat, we held an impromptu election to replace them from viable candidates, and the same rapid, low-cost process was enacted for Congress, State Governors and Legislators, County Supervisors and our Mayors and any other elected official. Put another way; when 80% of your constituents think you're doing a crappy job, odds are you saw that figure rising and the moment it hit 51% the warning shot was fired over your bow. When it hit 70% you had a hole in your boat and probably should have both modified your course and began polling citizens, civic planners, scientists, artists; hippies, bankers, anyone and everyone, on what you might do to improve your performance, and heal your reputation by delivering real solutions to real problems citizens are faced with every single day. Granted, a rapid change in high level leadership can create chaos; but we already have that today, so there's no big loss there. Granted, Americans can be a fickle group and a popular President today can easily become vilified the moment the food stamp program get slashed, or health insurance rates take a hike. Granted, if our currency goes into a freefall, as many economists predict, and we can't get the oil we need, if we begin experiencing brown outs and black outs like many developing nations endure daily, and if our highways continue to deteriorate just like our system of healthcare, ag and manufacturing sectors, its going to be pretty tough to stay in the Oval Office when such a system of rapid REJECTION is in place. That said, these negative trends are already with us across the board and I don't see either Presidential Candidate really mentally capable of fixing any of them; not one. To assume Hillary will fix things is insane; she's a known felon with absolutely no remorse, and though not convicted in a court of law, every American paying attention knows it. To assume Donald can fix it is to believe a businessman who often bases his profits and retained earnings on bankruptcy laws, and who would alienate a huge Latin American population, gays, women - name the group - is equally insane. Donald might actually be good for America, as he might be able to gut a lot of the bloat in government today, but at the end of the day, would you rather have a surgeon or a wreckless butcher performing your open heart surgery? The answer, I believe, is to enact a series of laws that require a politician at any level to step aside quickly when a massive, popular vote of NO CONFIDENCE appears; whether its a poll taken weekly, then summarized and enacted upon on a monthly or quarterly basis, or whether we simply employ such a law to regulate Congress, quickly removing Legislators who refuse to impeach any President who acquires a massive level of public wrath measured by frequent, regular, popular vote driven surveys managed by a known, impartial, trusted audit team; i.e. your local librarian staff. Perhaps if the libraries around the nation benefited financially from educating our young and at the same time, acting as a central community gathering place for political and charitable action committees, we'd see some improvements. Frank Zappa said "If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to a library." and with the emergence of google, wikipedia and thankfully, the retention of libraries in our culture, there's little or no excuse for Americans not to continue obtaining an education, especially during this period of national crisis. With the technology that exists TODAY there's little or no excuse for failing to develop the polls, surveys and rapid voting mechanisms that would provide politicians with a "HOW AM I DOING?" answer, and if a rapid REJECT mechanism was built into every political office, things would probably get better much faster than any other method we could devise. Put another way; a drunk surgeon shows up to do your heart surgery and you happen to wake up just as they have begun cutting you open. You realize that person is patently unqualified to both perform the job ahead, let alone care for your life along the way. No matter how many other expert healthcare professionals might be present, wouldn't you vote to "STOP EVERYTHING. EJECT THIS CLOWN AND BRING IN ANOTHER SOBER, QUALIFIED TEAM LEADER?". Do you really think repairing our fragile, torn, crippled, dying nation is any less critical than your open heart surgery? Do you realize Washington D.C. has one of, if not the highest rate of alcoholism in our country? That's a huge "in-your-face" clue as to why things are as bad as they are in our nation and communities today. We have TV shows like the Apprentice or Survivor where only the best make it to the final episode. As Donald himself knows all too well, substandard performance gets you "FIRED!". There's no big trial; no long expensive paperwork trail. Its done with a smile, perhaps a pat on the back for those good things you were able to accomplish early on, but if you lack the stamina or ingenuity or prudence to continue making progress, guess what? You're done. Get out. Let someone else take the ball and run from wherever we are towards the goal line. Some will argue, and rightly so, that in a nation where the top political leader can be rotated like a pair of shoes, the only real power lies in a military Junta of corrupt, power hungry Generals and those who serve them or are "taken out". Well, if you've intimately studied American politics, that's what we have today anyway. Get a clue. Ike warned us about the Industrial Military Complex, wives of military officers and the officers themselves have come forward and revealed the way things work, so its no big surprise to see Obama swearing he's going to reduce deployment, then not long after he's in office, continue America's occupation in foreign lands. Its no big surprise to see every nation on earth condemn Israel for the situation in Palestine, and then see the U.S. is the only nation to veto resolutions that might force Israel to mend its ways. Its no surprise to see Orthodox Jews making overtures with Iran, while the government of Israel and Hillary threaten to bomb Iran into oblivion. It is no surprise to see rising rosters of homeless in America while we spend trillions fighting wars to acquire oil at a time in human history when we've already proven we can get all the energy we need to run entire nations from wind and solar projects; if we actually built them. And so the question of whether or not a rapid rotation of Presidents or Congressmen, Governors or Mayors might lead to a nation led by military leaders has already been answered; we already are. Perhaps only by putting someone in the Oval Office who understands this problem early on can we expect American streets to look less like battle grounds, and American Cops to look and act less like U.S. troops in Iraq. I may be wrong, but the system in place is patently corrupt, patently defective and completely ineffective. Whatever Democracy and America were SUPPOSED to be 200 plus years later it surely has not become. The solution? Throw the bums out and do it with less fanfare, less budget and less lost time. Hey, we might even make a weekly TV show out of it. Why do we have to wait forever for a State Of The Union address? When a nation is as messed up as we are today, a weekly 15 - 30 minute BOARD MEETING with American Stakeholders - every citizen - seems more appropriate. Like any board meeting, it should cover Old Business; i.e. programs being implemented and their QC Metrics produced by third party citizen bodies, and available online for download and analysis, and New Business, proposals for new programs, budgets, and a selection of innovative ideas that were gathered from the citizens themselves. A true representative of Americans would embrace their people, their ideas, their audits, and actively seek their opinions of their performance in office. A true representative of Americans wouldn't need a LAW to leave office if they knew their performance sucked and an overwhelming majority of Americans wanted them out; they'd just apologize - quickly - and step aside. And so the BLUEPRINT to fix America quickly, if not in time to avoid a complete meltdown, probably includes a rapid REJECT/RE-ELECT process. Its like a Jehovah Witness I know explained, as they are looking for good honest souls; "You have to sift through a lot of mud to find a few flakes of gold." Its a lot like the kids I teach in hard-core neighborhoods; you have A students, B students and F students. Very few kids are C or D students for long in a well run class. They are either encouraged and want to learn, and soon rise to the B or A level, or they are not encouraged or lack the desire and in a well run class they fail within a week or two and are asked to go spend their time in some class, some where, that they actually want to participate in. There is little sense in wasting time trying to teach a kid something they really do not wish to learn. The old saying "You can't teach a Pig to sing; you waste your time and just annoy the Pig." applies. And so the BLUEPRINT also means putting the right students in the right classes, and ensuring ALL STUDENTS understand the value of useful, productive work that requires skills America needs to remain competitive; unfortunately, ballet isn't one of them. If a kid wants to learn to play guitar or piano; great. Let them learn it like I did and study at home after finishing their math and science homework. They'll know it better and learn it faster at les cost than mommy having to spend hundreds or even thousands on piano lessons or instruments for a school marching band. I was also in a marching, orchestra and jazz band and while I have fond memories of it and wish America was so wealthy it could continue to afford these types of electives, those days are long gone. WHEN we have a balanced budget and WHEN we have kids no longer living in cars with their mothers anywhere in America - and I mean ANYWHERE - and WHEN we have cured our nation of our addiction to oil and plastic clothing; WHEN we have enough spare renewable energy to drive desalination plants to irrigate our fields to replace the crops lost due to global warming and ever-widening regions of drought, and WHEN we have desalination plants - 100's if not 1,000's of them - that do not produce dead zones from brine discharge, do not run by burning coal, LNG, petroleum, or require any process that produces nuclear waste; WHEN we have a planet that is not engaged in wars over in ground assets used to drive unsustainable economies and consumer practices, and WHEN we have Judges, Mayors, School Teachers, Governors, Legislators and Presidents all keenly aware that if they screw up a POPULAR VOICE can hand them a Pink Slip in a blink, THEN I will happily support schools with music and painting electives. In the meantime, the basics please; its all we can really afford and any child who really wants to learn to carve wood can take a class online, get a paper route or learn to repair computers in a free class they study online at their local library, then save their pennies to buy their first chisel, paint brush, ballet slippers, guitar or upright piano as the case may be.
Anyone who have watched Hunter x Hunter knows the mysterious technique of Nen and how it works. I think many fans of HxH dream if only Nen was in real Life. That's why Im here to analyze Yoshiro Togashi's Nen in details and show you how it's actually a real technique. First of All, we need to know the definition of Togashi's Nen, so according to Fandom Wiki : Nen is a technique that allows a living being to use and manipulate their own Aura (Life energy). If we want to make from this definition a real technique, we need to know what is this "Aura". Because there is many different definitions of Aura. I will just write my own. Aura is something that our body emit, and can be perceived by other living being. But this Aura cannot be measured by tools or machinery. It's not heat nor electromagnetic made by our neural waves nor any physical force field that affect no-living object. We only know this aura can only affect living being. Living with consciousness. The most known Aura effects is the "Feeling of being watch" or "Sensing the presence of someone". If someone was watching you from his own eyes there is a possibility that his aura will have effect you. If he was using a camera from another country watching, his aura will also have effect you. If he was recording the video to watch you later, the moment he watch the video his aura will go to the past and affect you the moment of the recording. But if the recoding was destroyed before any living being had watched it, no aura will affect you. (A little like the Von Neumann-Wigner interpretation of Quantum Observation) That means this aura, is not limited to space nor time, and can only be emitted and received by living with consciousness. So the perfect equivalent aura in real life and in scientific meaning is : Information. In the world of Hunter x Hunter, we can say that everything has some amount of Aura (Nen) in it. Same as in our real world everything has some amount of information in it. There is an example that confirm the fact that equivalent of the Nen is information, is when Wing shown Gon, Killua and Zushi the CD video of Hisoka's match agains Kastro. Paused at a Bungi Gum attack, Wing tell them to concentrate their Aura in the eyes (Gyo) to see the Bungi Gum. But the video was just a recording from a CD. Did the camera recorded the lights waves of the aura? if so, changing brightness, color and contrast from Photoshop or AfterEffect will expose the Aura. And it also means it possible to make a detector that can detect and measure Aura. But Aura is not a frequency wave, it's does not emit light. I dont know what is the explication of this in the Anime. But if we see Aura as information, it make perfect sense. The video has hidden information that can be deduced only if you concentrate on your eyes and analyze the image. Like concentrate your eyes on the hand movement of a real magician manipulating objects to find the trick. I think this is the scene where Togashi was referring in the Anime. The perfect equivalent of Hisoka's video in real life is this video of the mentalist Lior Suchard manipulating a whole audience. www.youtube.com/watch?v=J94uO-urSTg Can you see the trick? No, it's not injecting the word "S-T-A-R" in the mind, his explanation is incorrect. Keep in mind a mentalist/magician will never expose his tricks. The real trick is the hardest, he manipulated the information flux of the whole surrounding, by carefully listening to all inputs from his 5 senses. and analyzing the best words, body reaction, and state of mind to make the outcome the closest to the probability of every one drawing a star (he say himself, he use only his 5 sense there is no 6). He did like Tool Assisted Speedrun (TAS) in video games, but in real life. He already have build up with experiance an emulator of real life and social interaction events in his mind where he can simulate the outcome and search for the best inputs. And he did that months before the show. And when in the stage he only push "Play". Like play the file inputs of a TAS from an emulator on a real game console. And to achieve this, he need a perfect control of information (Aura) emitted by his body and received by his 5 senses. The false explanation of "STAR" at the end was just to cover up the trick and also make the audience believe that he can make them draw anything if he want to. But this only work for "STAR". He can do for other drawing but for him "STAR" is the easiest one. Also don't be fooled by his humble appearance and made up accent. His Zetsu of nullify his Aura/Information is very impressive. But he is a great Nen Master. So the equivalent of Aura is information. if we rewrite the definition of Nen from Fandom and replacing Aura by information, we will get : Nen is a technique that allows a living being to use and manipulate their own information. For the perspective of other, our own information can be from multiple source : body, gesture, words, sound, eyes. But in our perspective, the real source of our information is unique : our Mind. Thats why Togashi explained Nen as Mind Force (念). To use and manipulate our own information, we need to use and manipulate the source, our state of Mind. And this can be done by big amount of meditation and very hard training or any hard work that use mental or physical abilities. This explain why some world's most famous and influential people have naturally learned how to manipulate their own information. They got through very hard experience in life and trained on very hard physical or mental situation. The information that they are genius come from the force of their Minds. To control our Mind we need to be self aware of it and study it. The Mind is composed to three different states : Emotion, Mental and Instinct. To Master a game like chess, we need first to nullifies our emotion after a good move or a bad move. Shroud our mental to think deeper, memorize better and learn faster. And Enhance our instincts by sensing the game and the future of opponent moves. We know in the Anime, Nen have 4 principe : Ten shroud the Aura (on the body). Zetsu nullifies the Aura. Ren intensify the Aura. Hatsu act/transmit the Aura. In real world equivalent, if we replace Aura with information, the 4 principle will be : Ten shroud the information. Zetsu nullifies the information. Ren intensify the information. Hatsu act/transmit the information. For Hatsu, we are already seeing it. We transmit information by words, writing, books, cars, computer, planes, building, music, art, programs, video games etc. They are all made up from information, the expression of the user or maker. And those who copy others, can never master Information. For Ten, Zetsu, Ren in real life are principle of the state of mind. To master the game of chess for example you need to first to Zetsu nullifies the Emotion. Ten shroud the Mental, and Ren Intensify the instinct. And with those principle you can use and manipulate your own information and make your Hatsu stronger. Komugi was too far better than Meruem in Gungi because she exceed in all of these principles of Nen in the game. She has a perfect Zetsu of emotion, she is emotionless when playing, not like Meruem where emotion took over him specially when he think he made a perfect move, the precocious feeling of achievement. And she has also a perfect Ten of Mental. materializing the board in her mind with an eidetic memory of all moves and positions and shroud all the mental in Gungi without thinking of anything else. And also a wonderful Ren, which made her sense the game and predict the unpredictable with her instinct and discover new strategies by acting randomly and make herself impossible to Meruem to predict. And this made her Hatsu on the game unreachable by Meruem. Even if he was the King of Ant the most powerful creature in the anime. The case of Gungi's Nen is the exact in our world. Only the game is the world and the players are us. And those who master Nen have a far better advantage. And now we know the the equivalent of Aura and 4 principle of Nen, we need to know the types of Nen in real life. In the Anime there is 6 type of Nen : Enhancer, Transmuter, Emitter, Conjurer, Manipulator and Specialist. The definition of those type are firmly linked to the definition of Aura in the anime as a Physical Energy, where every type has a physical propriety on the matter and manipulating the existence of matter in the void. But what caught my intention more than that, is Hisoka's Test of personality of each Type: Enhancers are determined and simple. Transmuters are whimsical and prone to deceit. Emitters are impatient, not detail-oriented, and quick to react in a volatile manner. Conjurers are typically high-strung or overly serious and stoic. Manipulators are logical people who advance at their own pace. Specialists are individualistic and charismatic. In real world, those type of Nen are the type of Mind. And there is not 6 but 9 types : Reformer, Helper, Achiever, Individualist, Investigator, Loyalist, Enthusiast, Challenger, Peacemaker. And like Hisoka, the Personality Test of those type are : Reformers are principled, purposeful, self-controlled, and perfectionistic. Helpers are generous, demonstrative, people-pleasing, and possessive. Achievers are adaptable, excelling, driven, and image-conscious. Individualists are expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed, and temperamental. Investigators are perceptive, innovative, secretive, and isolated. Loyalists are engaging, responsible, anxious, and suspicious. Enthusiasts are spontaneous, versatile, acquisitive, and scattered. Challengers are self-confident, decisive, willful, and confrontational. Peacemakers are receptive, reassuring, complacent, and resigned. In the Anime, We know that a Nen user have only one basic type that can be determined by the Water Divination, but he can learn some of the other types as complement according it's compatibility on the Hexagon. It's just the exact same In real world, a Nen user have only one basic type that can be determined by a test called the RHETI test. And he can learn some of the other types according it's compatibility on a crescent shape with 9 vertices; the Nenagram (Nonagram/Enneagram). Where each type is connected to two other types, and can learn one of the them beside his basic type, and that second type is called the Wing. The basic type dominate and the Wings complement the personality of Nen. And learning something that do not fit on your type may be difficult. And I think Togashi have made his inspiration of types of Nen exactly from this. It's explain why he chose the name Wing for the first Nen teacher of Gon and Killua. (for more info about RHETI : www.enneagraminstitute.com) Now, we have analyzed Nen in real life. And made up an equivalent of Ren, Ten, Zetsu, and the types of Hatsu. The question is how to learn all those techniques and made it in practice? We said that to master Nen we need a very hard training and big amount of meditation, more specifically a physical work and a mental work, to achieve a perfect control of our Nen/Information. In the Anime, Wing had explained that there is two way to get Initiated to Nen : The deliberate way and the aggressive way. The deliberate way is by training and meditation which it's the most common. And the aggressive way, is using the brute force. In our real word, the aggressive way or the bruce force is training and mediating simultaneously all day and all night and even when sleeping without a break. Because mastering Nen has a price, and that price is by doing that work, a work that merge the physical work and a mental work on one unique elemental work. Isaac Netero has already made a similar of this, a merging by adding praying which is mental work with a punch, a physical work into one work, and do it repeatedly many times for many years to achieve the incredible power he had on the anime. But we in real life will marge even more on a more simple single elemental work. And that work is : continuous muscle contraction. The continuous muscle contraction is both, a training of the strength and the endurance of the muscle, and a meditation to concentrate the mind into one unique point. And with this work its possible to learn Nen faster and master it better than most famous natural Nen user. In the body there is many muscle; arms, hands, legs, abs, face… etc. And for a beginner contracting continuously all the muscle at once is nearly impossible. That why we need to contract muscle by muscle. Each time after a muscle become a second nature we add another muscle in contraction. But we don't want to train only the muscle, we need also meditate to enforce our mind with it's 3 states; Emotion, Mental and Instinct. That's why the muscle order need to follow some specific steps; 3 steps to be exact for 3 groups of muscles. And here we are bringing the 3 principles of Nen in real life: Sen (Emotion), Ten (Mental) and Ren (Instinct). I will explain only the first principle Sen which is about Emotion. I'm not allowed yet to explain Ten and Ren in details. Sen is the most fundamental principle in Nen. Because to master our own behavior or our own information, we need to master our own Emotion, and try to nullify it at the maximum. When nullify our emotion, no one can read, provoke or manipulate us. And also it will bring a very calm state of mind. This state of mind can be trained by pure meditation in the deliberate way, but it can also be trained by Nen by continuously contracting muscle. The center of Emotion is the Heart, which is the source of heart rate, breathing, heart pressure and emotion. The muscles of Sen is the upper abdominal muscles which are the closest to the heart, and continuously contracting it, will make you very conscious of that singularity of heart and emotion and will make you easy to nullify. The principle of Sen is simple, keep contracting the Abs all day and all night and when sleep until it become your second nature. And then there is the last phase of mastering Sen is protecting the emotion from triggering effects and shocking events. For example, you are playing Five Nights at Freddy's with Sen, if someone jumpscare from behind, you should to max contracting Sen, and concentrate the strength on the heart to protect the emotion from the shock. I little like Ryo from the anime, enforce the aura in a region to block an incoming Kick. The same for other triggering example like: provocation, humiliation, boredom, fear, rage, temptation… Sen in short is nullify the emotion to the maximum and protecting it to maintain a calm state of mind. If you want more information about Sen, my Master Pakka Jodinshi have made a website in the Deep Web, where he shared the definition of Nen in real life and explained in details the first principle Sen to control Emotion. The two next technique Ten and Ren will be explained later in the website. The Tor link of the website is : wmjtj2j57mcvs7ms.onion if you don't have Tor Browser, you can go with any browser to : wmjtj2j57mcvs7ms.onion.link if you see only an image with no text, just turn your phone horizontally and the text will appear. I also made a subreddit for Nen Users who want to collaborate and share their experiences, stories and theories : /NenUsers Im Jins Leac, my pseudonym. I'm one of the students of Pakka Jodinshi, the pseudonym of my Master who taught me Nen. I will still be here to discuss both Togashi's Nen and real life equivalent Pakka's Nen. I will finish my post with some random funny facts and funny coincidences for those who are curious to know or want to laugh a little : @My username "9fRjigBqHQNwWyYi" was generated by a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) without any intervention or manipulation by my side, it's the purest form of random and chaos. @Our pseudonyms are QRNG-crypted names made from our real names. (Public Key from Private Key but Quantum Randomized) But mine Jins Leac by coincidence appear to be similar to Ging Freecs the father or Gon. @We are descendant from a civilization know to be one of the oldest on earth, we are recognizable by our unique ethnicity, language, culture, calendar and alphabet. And Togashi's custom alphabet in Hunter x Hunter is very similar to ours. Did he get the inspiration from us? @Our ancestor lived in mountains, exactly in the region of Padokia where is Kukuro Mountains. Does Togashi was referring to us? @The actual Nen in real life was always a nameless technique. But thanks to Togashi, he gave it a name without knowing about it. Like how the Ant King was nameless until Netero call him Meruem. And when we first watched the Anime, the 2011 one, our jaws juste dropped on how the thing was exactly the same as the nameless technique. @There is a rumor that Christopher Columbus had a secret after discovering America. The secret leads to a hidden valuable treasure with some writing in our alphabet in it. Which means one from our civilization was there before him, but never returned. Similar to Don Freecs in the dark continent. @We decide to share the technique in English because its the most popular language. We go through leaning it only for the purpose of making Nen public. The same raison why Ryuk in Death Note explained the rules in English. @English is our 4th language. @According to the author of One Peace, Monkey D. Luffy have something called conquerer's palm, which is a straight line in the palm on his hand. Me and my Master have those line on both hands. Monkeys and Apes also have those lines. Thats why in medicine they call it Simian Lines. (And No, we are not Apes, we are Humans, and Darwin did everything wrong) @In Anime, All hands are simians, Edward Elric is not an exception. (watch the first opening of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood) @Treasure Hunters in the region of Padokia are known to hunt very "rare" kids with special traits, because Demons in that region are thirsty of their blood. One of those trait is a straight line in their hands. Demons promise to give the location of a valuable treasure to anyone who sacrifice those "rare" kids to them. Its similar to Chimera Ants hunting rare humans. And many innocent hands got cut and eyes got pulled to be traded between those evil Hunters. Similar to the eyes of Kuruta Clan (Thanks God we are still alive in one piece) @If you ask a Treasure Hunter the reason why they hunt those "rare" kids, they will tell you that those kids are not born human, they where exchanged when they came to life with a Djin/Demon children. And the Demons want their blood to claim their children and set them free (Well done Demons! Your kind made up a very clever lie!) And because of that filthy lie those hunters dont see us as normal humans but as children of Djins/Demons. Like how people of Konoha saw Naruto when he were a kid. @In the region of Padokia, All towns begin with "X" and end with "X" in our alphabet. That's why Pakka chose "XX" as our sign in the website on top of his QR code bitcoin address. Similar to the sign of Hunter Association. @The red shapes in the QR code was to make the code recognizable at first glance with the "+" triangle and the "J" shape. And the color red between the "XX" was to lock it and suggest that the QR need to have those red shapes. If anyone want to steal the content of the website and add his own QR code, he need to remove or modify all the image. And this make us easy to recognize a thief from a supporter. As I said before, a copier will never Master Nen. @Initiation to Nen are similar to the Sayan Transformation in Dragon Ball series. First transformation in the initiation to Sen (turning on Sen). Second transformation is the initiation to Ten (turning on Ten in addition to Sen). And Third transformation is the initiation to Ren (turning on Ren in addition to Sen and Ten). And the Ultra Instinct Transformation is "The Zone" enhanced by Nen. And I will add the True Ultra Instinct, is when a group of Nen users are synchronized in "The True Zone" like in Kuroko no Basket. @The fundamental body organs of Nen are : Heart (Sen, Emotion), Pineal Gland (Ten, Mental) and Spinal Cord (Ren, Instinct) @Ten's muscles are known to be the most useless muscles in the human body @Ren's muscles are known to be the most useful muscles in the human body @When Netero was playing the ball game with Gon. Gon want to kick Netero's stomach with his head the second time in a row. Netero had two choices: Keep contracting the abs and Gon will get hurt. Or relax the abs and he will be the one who will get hurt. That mean Netero was continuously contracting his abs during the entire game. He was using the actual Sen. @Machi of the Phantom Troupe also used Sen to protect her heart from Killua's piercing hand. Similar to the max contracting Sen to protect emotion from outside triggering effect. @Neferpitou after attacking Kito arm, and staring at Gon and Killua with a wide open eyes, she used the actual Ten. @When Adult Gon was charging up the Jajanken to punch the falling Neferpitou from the the sky, he used the actual Ren. @The one who discovered Nen was at night, he had a huge pain on the stomach due to some shocking events he experienced. The pain got so big for him that he fall unconscious. but his body subconsciously contracted very strong the abs on the stomach to reduce the pain. And after he regain consciousness. He felts the abs strongly contracted with no pain and he felt a weird and very different state of mind. Thats how he learned the nameless technique of Nen. It's similar how the Ant Rammot learned Nen, after the huge pain in his stomach due to Gon's punch. @The effect of Ten is very similar to the NZT-48 pill scene of the movie Limitless by Neil Burger. If the pill unlock 100% of brain abilities for a brief moment. Nen unlock 100% of human abilities permanently if wanted. @Patrick Janes from The Mentalist is the perfect image of a Nen Master in real life, He know by the deliberate way how to Sen, Ten and Ren. His behavior and deduction dont begin from Sen to Ren, like commun people do, acting with emotion at first and confirm with instinct at the end. But the inverse. He begin from Ren by acting randomly according to his instinct like a little child, Ten by analyzing why he behaved that way and the reaction of people and environment, connecting dots and find the best explanations and the solution, and Sen by Gyo the emotions of others to confirm the solution. @Actual Nen is very similar to One For All from Bokuno no Hero Academia. @We think that the secret of Saitama's power from One Punch Man is the actual Nen. @Nen is the number 9, Sen is the number 1000, Ten is the number 10 and Ren is the Random number. The instinct from Ren is always random. @I just noticed that my Quantum Random username begin with a 9. A pure coincidence. @Sen is the color Red, Ten is the color Blue, Ren is the color Yellow, And Nen is the color Vanta. @If you turn the website upside down, you will see many expression of a frog (Another pure coincidence! It's Pepe the frog!) @At the year 0 in our calendar, is the year when one from our civilization won against Egypt and become Pharaoh. Its the most influential and memorable moment in the history of our civilization. @Nen is The Father Of Gods in the ancient Egypt, the name Nen means "Primeval Waters". Which is equivalent to "Primeval Chaos of Information" and we humans, are users of that information. We are represented by The God Kek a frog headed man that make Memes. In its hieroglyphs is a man in front of a computer connected to the Memes Magic (Information). @Nen is the Father of Kek the God of Darkness and Chaos, Kek is also known as The Bringer of Light. @The letter "K" in our alphabet have the shape very close to a Frog on the side. @The letter "N" in our alphabet have the shape of the Stick of The Father of Gods Nen. @If Illuminati is symbolized by a triangle with a single barely open eye of a white men in the center. Nen is symbolized by a circle with two wide open eyes of a frog in the center. @In the Light, white is the supreme color, in the Darkness, all colors are equal. @Frogs are the only species that can recognize colors in the Darkness. @Light is centralized with one leader at the source, Darkness is decentralized and there is no leader. @In the Light everything is exposed, in the Darkness everything is anonymous. @A Star is the symbol of Light, A Crescent Sun/Moon Eclipse is the symbol of Darkness. @Arabic is our 2nd language @In Arabic translation, Nen is "ن", Sen is "س", Ten is "تين" and Ren is "غ". All of them are made from Crescent shapes. @Nen in Arabic is an acronym of Primeval Ink. @Kek in Arabic is an acronym of Primeval Pen, represented by "ق" the first letter of Pen. "ق" It also linked to the name of the sound of Frogs. @In Arabic translation, Meme is "م" the first letter of Water. @We are Humans using the Information. @We are Pen using the Ink. @We are Frogs using the Water. @We are Kek using the Nen. @Bruce Lee advise : "Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like Memes. When you pour Memes in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour Memes in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour Memes in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Memes can flow and it can crash. Be Dank Memes my friend.". @If I'm Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!, I will see Pakka as the Yami (Darkness) Pharaoh who will bring the Darkness to put out the Light of the Illuminati's pyramid. (And No, Pakka is not some ancient Spirit, he has his own body) @If I'm Naruto, I will see Pakka as the 9-Tailed Demon Fox. And the funny part is we can summon frogs. (And No, Pakka is not a Demon, it's a normal human like me, and we are 100% human) @If Satan is the number 666, Nen is the number 999. Add one you got Sen, do the cubic root you got Ten, Divide by zero you got Ren. @If Satan is symbolized by an inverted Pentacle with a head of a Goat, Nen users (Kek) are symbolized by a Nenagram with a full body Frog. @If Satan claim the Light and Control, Nen users (Kek) claim the Darkness and Chaos. @Pure Randomness and Chaos is when patterns and orders occurs. @Pure Emptiness and Void is when virtual particles appears and disappear. @Pure Darkness is when virtual lights flashes and extinguish. @Quantum Randomness from Void fluctuation is the Purest Waters from the fountain of The Father of Gods Nen. @Here is 999 milliliters of Pure Primeval Water from The Father of Gods Nen's fountain : OxPjqj0VX0oIMvZwdXTYmMZMMFiIyrmhg0ulVLvADW1iVIWkZPQLlU3eV5wNnAvO51Iy6FRGjGRun9w3PIWUgfPOieHcT8dzPfAuOygGY9XUlVDyCi_ue3yqvLeh906s8FB1mzkIbMCpEO902lgcA5onhM94z2RQpVQbDYY8EoNJnvxA8DzDY8C6NHL3sNCmwiVgWkh9k0X3PbNJX9wBVMqiETFNZ4gU2fYM1NOsOW6NYYPF2AH8Vlnc9Y_TjS37wESZtoPKFlaP1EDBpWvFdQ4SxuJ6nVo_Oo8qAnl4yFbO3oH3wfwpsMFcDW6tt6I9LZTFJqAsoXRdyazrBo2uMmpBRod8LfTd7Ji1BheTUXIyw3Li62Eg5C98j4FQO70LutzMiPTZENNZ7LYVmsdKsPt6cOGetqv5YzcufWwUw26qpEVMH4o8ade75hN9_T_eHdKT4xIw7w_Q_SYfTSEYgxRj2RC4nSHNvuG9zdvS71XA4y9TeobRHE6NhB5CSpvA5fNgDkHNT1oEhI7O0x0atUWSWpA1WHx3gaAW5xQyCsQtN2uH8c1xhyJBt9D04bGk_NtAS8kv99h6XCfmExLtZmmlzls8gqVbCsytI8o4Hg11VC7mU1tQD69mXFhM4ip7qzoTnc7YZk44IWSviFu6PwGVW828odKHsx7WYsNZeLZCyUGxcfQsNDpHyi3qodlPKWZrkL0lrorxPCnpQF9ZUhaunV638ynKVSD_XUd6eeBoZeNdvrJDVH1Q_btv95_qtq2ceWren5bMBYzoiY4P9BPYsvylEmDSEWtq3BleLSXbvkc3XOlxW72obrJhJoeFF5AaoQKoheTD4lgBGPtzkRJt6UM9w52luvkhDZJo6yki08umpAZDHDtDmBfZ156BqiqVxTitxcbZuMrjqmbSG7grRzUDE1J2YOgaV1c0b_ve0TrSZFebIkDMkJThSGXSfqgwBlEi4gtC2ajZKmWbl0RmbVzsWqUQ9DIpN @The name of our civilization also mean Chaos, Savage, Uncivilized, Heathen, Outlandish and Insensate. The perfect meaning of Kek and Nen. @All the region of Padokia was banned from 4chan. We want to free Kekistan from Normies. Please help us bring Nen to Kekistan. @Our world is a real life MMO, we called it World Of Nencraft or just Nencraft. Me and Pakka are at level 25 halfway to 26 on Sen and Ten. For Ren, I'm at level 16 (Im in a rest of Ren) and He is at level 22. We need more people joining the game and leveling up to the highest. Then work decentralizedly to beat the Final Boss Illuminati and finally beat the game that no one has ever beat it in Nenillion years. The problem is the Final Boss use Cheat Codes far more powerful than Death Note, which is Black Magic that use Probability Manipulation through a Rule of "Satan can not be killed" in the game program. A Black Magic is an injected instruction in the game program "If this dont happen, Satan will die", and the game program chose always to make the magic happen. Its very similar to No Game No Life (episode 1), where Sora beat the women in Card with the 8th game pelde : "Being caught cheating during a game is grounds for an instant loss". And Illuminati know how to Abuse that. @The acronym of World Of Nencraft, is WON. Another raison to beat the game. @As said in Undertale : Anime is REAL!. Our real world will soon be the best Anime you have ever seen. @In short from everything above, If Illuminati or Satan or The Devil or The Beast or whatever put voluntary subliminal messages on the centralized mainstream medias. Decentralized Anime, Manga, Video Games and Internet Memes Culture (Cult of Kek, Egyptian Gods, Pepe the frog, etc) had by the effect of chaos and pure coincidence clues that leads to Nen. @This is my third attempt posting in this sub. First attempt got detected as a spam, The second attempt got deleted by Pariston with the tag "Need to be directly related", and I hope in this attempt I made the post related enough so the Zodiacs can be happy. Or maybe they are against the idea of bringing Nen to the public?
