The Wisdom of a Smashing Pumpkin



Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage...


Which is, sadly, true... usually, it doesn't matter how righteous your fury is, but whether you are in a position to claim your rights...

That single moment that counts...


However you live your life, whatever you do for a living...
Whichever are the reasons and the goals you struggle for...
Be they Money, Power, True Love,
seeking Happiness or flashes of Joy and Excitement...
...or just trying to make ends meet, fighting for mere Survival...

There is only a single moment that truly counts...

The moment We connect to Each Other.

The end of the First War

Which is the Very First War?

That of the sexes, of course!

And here's a way to end it; just think about the following:


"You don't know what it's like to be the opposite sex!"

The Refusal Manifesto

I refuse

- To be judged by both God and Men.

- To be optimistic without evidence.

- To accept void reasurrances of Happines.

- To accept as worwhile a Life that fails to be interesting.

- To compromise with anything that doesn't fill my Soul and my Mind.


- To seek anything that should have been given freely (e.g. motives, opportunities...)

- To take for granted anything that isn't.

Simple Practices...

Ok, I don't know if I am a communist...

BUT,

I.M.H.O., I think that if human society is to become more... humane and not destroy itself, there has to be a change to the way people act within it...

I believe that there has to be a socio-political re-organizing, where the average person and all will work for the common good, for the community, for the whole and not for themselves, while each person will have the security that the community, the State will care for their needs and will provide them with the essentials of housing, food and health care at all times...

That way, fraudulence for personal gain will have no meaning, while everyone will be safe that there is no danger of being left without home or doctor...

Is this communism? Is it bad?

Intellectual Property?


Can you own an idea? Once you've come up with a poem, a story, a tune do you really expect to give your permission for someone to... evoke it?... and make a profit out of it?
Artistic creations are like children... once you bring them into the world, you have to release them... otherwise they suffocate...

Many film or music industries claim about lost profits due to the free circulation of art... who do they think we are? Do they actually think that we would be able to buy all this music and films that we freely circulate?

And one other thing... supposedly by buying CDs or DVDs, we help everyday working technicians like me and you make a living... if the entertainment industries care so much about them, then they should lower their prices and give equal shares to them!...


Being a writer myself, I try to imagine others copying my works and distributing them without me making any profit... Of course, since I'm a new writer, that would be an exquisite flattery to me... plus, EVERYONE would love to live only through their art, but Its free distribution is more important to all...
I make a simple thought... I remember all the art that I had access to without giving money I didn't have...

Prophesies Sung



In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do and say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to do
Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year 5555
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs got not nothing to do
Some machine is doing that for you

In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter, too
From the bottom of a long black tube

In the year 7510
If God's a-comin' he ought to make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say
"Guess it's time for the Judgement day"

In the year 8510
God's gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say "I'm pleased where man has been"
Or tear it down and start again

In the year 9595
I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothing

Now it's been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man's reign is through
But through the eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away
Maybe it's only yesterday

Feeding Frenzy


For thousands of years, Mankind has been living off of Earth's resources...
Consuming, as if they were endless...
It figures!... Our ability to harvest what our planet has in store for us was so limited that no matter how much we spent, it seemed that there will always be more!... There will always be enough...

But, since the Industrial Revolution and up to our times, our technology and exploitation abilities have increased dramatically!...

For thousands of years we've been living with what Earth had "in store" for us... and these resources are depleting!...
And we show very little intention of changing our ways...

Time and Time Again...


During the Middle Ages, two thirds of Europe were annihilated by the "Black Death"...

During that time, people, panicked and lead by their ignorant and fanatic priests, were killing cats en masse because they believed that the disease was brought by "The Devil" and cats were (of course, at the time) "The Devil's minions"...

What they did, in fact, was helping the disease spread all the more...
Why? Because the disease-causing bacteria were carried by fleas, who were riding rats...
And what do cats do? They hunt rats!... So, by killing cats they were helping the disease!...

Funny, huh?
Does this remind you something? Something recent?
I'll give you some hints: Recess, Climate Change, Capitalism...

You figure out the rest!...

A Crisis of Judgement


One of the "safety nets" of the "free market" and free Societies, in general, is the judgement of the citizen, consumer, person. The ability one has to tell right from wrong, wholesome from harmful.

But, what are the factors that shape one's judgement? Who teaches you (or should) how to tell good from bad?

Let's account the three that come to mind: Family, School, Church.

In today's society, the Family has been integrated to the production process of the market. Family has become an institution that feeds and helps people face everyday challenges, as well as breeding new "pieces" of the Machine.
Parents have no time to Guide their children and their role has been diminished to mere material providers.

Schools? What do schools offer? They can certainly give education, but do they produce Culture? Do they foster responsible citizens or just "information banks"?
Do schools spread Knowledge (and the love for It) or they just bend "cogs" to the proper shape?

The Church, supposedly, is the voice of God in the World... but, wait a minute! If that's true, then either our Planet is how God intents it to be, or the church ought to have been outlawed!...
Or, Religions just don't do what they are "supposed" to!...
When did the organized Church stood up against injustice and for the rights of people? Except if there are no unjust regimes!...

The conclusion is that today's people have lost their sources of "judgemental education". There is noone to teach them how to appreciate whether something is good or bad... and we are left to the mercy of the profit-seeking Corporations and the various advertisements...

What we need is the reinforcement of a Factor (call it whatever you want) that will make us stronger as Persons!...

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, Brother




You will not be able to stay home, brother.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
In 4 parts without commercial interruptions.
The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon
blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John
Mitchell, General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat
hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be brought to you by the
Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie
Woods and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia.
The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal.
The revolution will not get rid of the nubs.
The revolution will not make you look five pounds
thinner, because the revolution will not be televised, Brother.

There will be no pictures of you and Willie May
pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run,
or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance.
NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32
or report from 29 districts.
The revolution will not be televised.

There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
brothers in the instant replay.
There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down brothers in the instant replay.
There will be no pictures of Whitney Young being
run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process.
There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy
Wilkens strolling through Watts in a Red, Black and
Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
For just the proper occasion.

Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville
Junction will no longer be so damned relevant, and
women will not care if Dick finally gets down with
Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people will be in the street looking for a brighter day.
The revolution will not be televised.

There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock
news and no pictures of hairy armed women
liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose.
The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb,
Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom
Jones, Johnny Cash, Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be right back after a message
about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
You will not have to worry about a dove in your
bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl.
The revolution will not go better with Coke.
The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised.
The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live.

-Gil Scott-Heron

No Employers, no Employees: A Working Model


I was thinking the other day... this employer-employee relation is totally unfair, wrong and unworkable!...
Employees should not have a salary, but, rather, be pain by percentage of the company's revenue!...

Picture this: You have a capital and you open up a business. Instead of paying people to do the needed job, you hire them as partners!...
Can the business work without them? No.
Can they work without your business? No.
So, if they were paid by percentage, then they would be a lot more dedicated to their job because the more prosperous the company, the more money they would get!...

The percentage given to each "level" of participant to the company would be defined by the State, as would be the accounting of the company.
No company would have its own accountants. There would only be civil servants managing each company's books and making sure that everyone would be paid their fair percentage...

That's NOT Communism. The company is still yours to do as you will!...
I also don't know if it's a form of Socialism...

But it's a fair and workable way to do business...


Of course, money-holding capitalists don't care anything about fairness!...

Rights on Spiritual Creations


Recently, the European Parliament voted for the extension of the copyright of songs from 50 to 70 years, due to the increasing demand of the creators -who now live longer than in previous decades- and the music industries, who've lately seen their profits fall because of the wide-spread free downloading (sharing, erroneously known as "piracy").

My thoughts -apart from the obviously delusional nature of "owning" an idea (and monetarily profiting from it)- is that the politicians anguish about the "rights" of the big companies and those, superstar, artists who can actually become rich from their creations...

...but, where are the laws to protect and encourage the young, obscure musician?
(And no, the 20% of the revenue is not helpful enough!...)

Redemption First Thing in the Morning!

There is, actually, a way redeem ourselves in the face of... well, ourselves and make our world a better place right now, from tomorrow morning…
Not a good place to live, because the damage that has been done is already too much for our generation (an the several upcoming) to live in a nice world, but better…

Of course, the catch is that all the people in the world must put aside their differences, selfishness and greed… simultaneously…

So, what to do!…
First thing in the morning, we abolish Capitalism and make money redundant!… After all it’s just bad quality paper and numbers…
Then, the only people who go to work will be those who produce and transfer food (the essentials only, no candies, no beverages), medicine, the doctors, those who are responsible for the energy and water supply and all kinds of engineers that have to do with (renewable) energy.

Got it? Right! The rest of us will go for volunteer work until NOT A SINGLE PERSON in the world lacks the essentials (food, clean water, clothing, housing)…

Don’t worry, there’s plenty of it to go round for everyone!…

Then, we must make sure that no-one will ever have two of anything essential while someone else has none!…

OK?
Are you ready for the new, better world?

See you tomorrow morning!!!

Rachel Corrie (1979-2003)


No one can take away from me
My identity,
For it is mine.
Palestinian am I.


I am the river that flows
Through my land.
I am the mountain
Noble and magnificent
Rising up out of chaos and destruction.


I greet the morning sun
That shines down on my fertile valleys
And parches my barren desert.


I am the red poppy and yellow daffodil
That grow upon my bloodstained hills.
I am the battle cry of freedom
That echoes through my corridors
And every fiber of my being.


Palestinian am I.
I am the proud owner of
Orange orchards and lemon blossoms
And honey bees, wild and free.


I am the David child wielding a single stone
Against the Israeli Goliath.
I am not afraid,
For truth is with me and God is on my side.
If I die,
A choir of angels will honor me
And later, my parents will grasp my outstretched hand
And join me in Heaven.
I am the tears of
Mothers weeping for their dead sons.
I am the footsteps of ancient prophets
Who foretold of doom and destruction
To those who torture and oppress me.


My brethren are the doves, hummingbirds and seagulls
That fly unhindered above my sea.
I am Palestinian,
Therefore, I am.


No one can take my identity
Away from me,
Not tanks or guns or bombs
Meant to desecrate me and kill me.
My country lives in me.


I am the cry of liberty
No matter what they take from me,
They can't take away my identity
Or my dignity.
Palestinian am I.

-Palestinian am I, Edna Yaghi

Participant to Motion


I consider myself "Participant to Motion"...

What does this, in essence, mean?

1. I "inscribe" Structures to my movements...

I don't "climb" (the stairs, a ladder...), I Ascend.

I don't "walk down", I Land.

I don't "turn", I Redefine my Path.



2. I (try to) "translate" everything into Motion, Flow:

-Love is actually an exchange of Positive Psychic Energy...

-Playing an instrument is the "dance" of the fingers...

-The use of the word Inertia and Stability for more than moving objects...


Life itself is the chaotic choreography of fluids, energy and the occasional idea!...

Crisis? WHAT financial crisis?


These past months we are all living in fear, dreading the terrible "Financial Crisis"...

However, the truth is THERE IS NO FINANCIAL CRISIS!

Mental, of course! But not economic!
The natural resources, the only thing that actually exists have not changed!

You see, nowadays we are just experiencing the unpleasant side of the delusion we've been living in for so many years...

If you build your economy, your very life with air-money, then when you go to the teller, you are bound to receive thin AIR.

On God and Atheism


I don’t know the motive that made me put these words down… Maybe because I stumbled upon this site or maybe because the film Religulous is coming out…
I just want to write what I think about God, mainly as an answer to those declaring Atheists…

First, a few facts about me:
-I was raised a Christian, (Greek) Orthodox, like most people in my country.
-I believe in God, but I’m against the institute of "religion".
The reasons for this opposition of mine are two:
1) I don't want (or need, for that matter) any smuck telling me what (my) God wants and how to worship God.
2) Every religion starts with: “God told me”, which, in itself, calls for subjugation, thus placing every religion a breath away from being a mere tool to control people.

However, I DO believe in God.
Why so? Because, if not for any other reason, it makes my life complete…
To the obvious question: “Why do you need a God to make your life complete?”
I would answer: “The presence of God gives the World more sense than the absence…”

You see, Science doesn’t have all the answers and it never will.
Why? Because while Science is based on facts, the Human existence entails more than facts can provide.
A few examples of these? Love, Hope, the Meaning of Life and of course, Faith.

Because God is all about Faith.

Faith: Accepting something as true without the need of facts.

Also, there is one other thing. The very Existence of Everything.
Why should there be anything?
Come on, you fact-seekers! You know “It just did!” is not enough!…


Well, who, what is “God”, in the end?
That’s the easiest answer. God is whatever one defines it!
If you ask me, GOD IS LOVE.


Those who dispute the existence of God, usually do so using the following arguments:
1) There is no proof for the existence of God.
2) The idea of God doesn’t comply with physical laws.

I think both arguments are mislead, because they’re missing the point…

1) As I said, God is all about Faith. If there was undeniable proof of the existence of God, if God was doubtlessly hanging above our heads, watching (and judging) us, then everything would lose its meaning and our lives would be as if in a prison…

2) God is within and beyond the physical laws. God is eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, perfect, everywhere, everywhen, (and everything, I might add). You can’t dispute this because that’s God’s definition and qualities. You can’t dispute red’s redness!


Some are using logical arguments against the existence of God, such as:
a) “How can God be everywhere at the same time when ‘at the same time’ doesn’t physically exist?”
b) “How can God be all good and loving, yet letting bad things happen?”
c) “Can God create a rock he can’t lift?”
d) Why won’t God heal amputees?

Well, these are, once again, mislead-missing-the-point-arguments…

a) God is beyond natural laws. Trying to describe God with normal, physical colloquialisms is like trying to describe a computer as a kind of potato. They’re both material objects, they’re both useful to man, but the similarities end there. Otherwise, a computer is way beyond potato reality…

b) The answer is easy. If you had your father watching over you your entire life, not only you would never learn right from wrong, but also you would never accomplish anything on your own. All evils in the world come from either free Human will, or they’re based on fundamental, necessary laws of nature (example of the latter is that radiation may cause cancer, but if there weren’t for UV rays, life might never had been appeared on this planet in the first place…)

c) God CAN create a rock. Whether that rock is liftable or not is God’s business. Suffice to say that the rock is both liftable and unliftable, just because God can create it thusly and because you can’t trap God within petty little mind tricks.

d) Beats me! If I ever meet God in person, I’ll ask him.
By the by… I do believe in Miracles (Divine Intervention). I don’t know why, when or how would God choose to intervene, but I certainly expect that when God wants to “lend a hand” to his Creation… well, who's gonna stop him?
I think that miracles happen every day, all the time, if you can see them. “Scientifically inexplicable occurrences” have absolutely no point. If one doesn’t open himself to Faith, nothing will ever make him fall to his knees and praise the Almighty…




The bottom line, the Ultimate Question about Life, the Universe and Everything, to both faith-full and faith-less ought to be:

"How does this make my life better?"
"How does this make me a better person?"
"How does this help me make the world better?"



P.S. The Life After? The Afterlife, I believe, is this: A look back to our lives. What we did during our lifetimes, what we became and what we ended up representing… That’s Afterlife!…




Well, Blessed Be!!!
Peace and Love, bros and sists!

Terrorism: The practices the ruling class uses to subdue the people.

Nightmares of Hatred


Israeli soldier killed, Gaza truce breached

I had a dream, or, rather, a nightmare last night (honestly!)...
I dreamt that the UN army invaded both Israel and Palestine and confiscated every and all the weapons! From knives and guns to tanks and aeroplanes!
They only left them with two missiles. One for each side...
Then, the whole world stood by and watched who will draw the first blood and if the other would retaliate...

My dream had obviously been influenced by J.M. Straczynski's comic: "Rising Stars" where one of the superheroes stole all the nuclear warheads in the world leaving only one to each country...

God! I'm so fed up with all this hatred and bloodshed that I've started having nightmares!...

On the other hand, with all this
irrationality and violence among the warring parties, my dream may be a good proposal!...

Middle East: The Michael Moore suggestion


Here's a part from M. Moore's book: "Stupid White Men" (2001) concerning the Israel-Palestine conflict:

"My proposal is not a new idea. It involves no armies, no money, and no UN resolutions. It's dirt cheap. It has been tried many times, in many countries -AND IT HAS NEVER FAILED....
...It's called mass nonviolent civil disobedience....

1. You just lay your bodies down -often just a few thousand in the middle of the road will do- and don't move and don't fight back when they try to drag you away.

2. Call a general strike. Refuse to work for the Israelis....

...then you must lay down all arms, lay down your bodies in the middle of the road and then... just wait. Yes, the Israelis will beat many of your people... Trust me, when the pictures of your suffering at the hands of these brutes go out across the world, there will be suck an outcry that the Israeli government will be unable to continue its oppression."

The Null Manifesto

Aberrant is a Role-Playing Game in which, after the explosion of an Earth-orbiting space station that contained radioactive chemicals, several people from all over the world started to spontaneously develop superhuman abilities...

One of them, perhaps the strongest, going by the name of Divis Mal (The Bad Angel) issued a supremacist manifesto declaring the separation (at least) of the "superhumans" from the "regular" ones...

This manifesto is known as The Null Manifesto and it lies below...

"What does that have to do with the 'Real World', with us?" You may ask...

Well, as one of the adherents of the Manifesto once said: "I am speaking of responsibility, while you -and others- remain focused on the law... If you have the power to do what you feel and believe is right and the law tells you no, what should you do?... Many choose to abrogate their responsibility by allowing others to make their decisions for them... We [the followers of the Manifesto] are united by our mutual decision to take up the burden of responsibility placed on us by our gifts, to use them as well feel is best to answer only to own our conscience in the end." (Aberrant Player's Guide, page 20)

A guide to read the Manifesto in the proper context:

Homo Sapiens Novus, Novas, The One Race: Those who live knowing that Mankind (and everything) is ONE.

Homo Sapiens Sapiens, Baselines: Those are interested only in their own little world.

Aeon: The System.

Note: The exact passage has been changed to reflect existential and not evolutionary difference...

The Null Manifesto

Homo sapiens novus, I know your worth, I sense your frustration and I have seen your destiny; hear me now...

I am Divis Mal, and I, like yourselves am a member of Homo sapiens novus; The One Race. I address the number of my brothers and sisters in life in this, a call for all members of Homo sapiens novus to reject the shackles that baseline humanity has ventured to place upon us. We have unknowingly and willingly yoked ourselves to their closed-minded, simplistic mindset and short-sighted, atavistic agendas. We have volunteered to sell ourselves short! I see inside each and every one of us the potential to change reality as we know it. Potential that is, unfortunately, being squandered on the impulses and desires of creatures with neither the right nor the virtue to edict legislation to their existential superiors. If you choose to live under the convention of Homo sapiens sapiens, you choose to waste your power and purpose on needless adherence to practices that no longer apply to you or your people. The question must be asked; why force yourself into the role of pawn when you should be the king?

The members of Homo sapiens novus (also referred to as "novas") are people separate from Homo sapiens sapiens. The very nature of Homo sapiens novus is intrinsically different from that of its baseline predecessors; this is a fact that is recognizable, and by all philosophical aspects as self-evident. And yet still, baseline routine and the self-deluding propaganda of Aeon and its whores tells us that we, who are a quantum leap up the existential chain, an incarnate god, belong in place alongside the baseline from which we evolved.

Practices and customs enacted for the good of Homo Sapiens are too easily subverted and misinterpreted to abuse the rights of novas, who are required by destiny to attain their full potential -- a goal impossible while abiding by strictures set by beings who are not one's peers and who cannot accurately judge what is "proper" or ""profitable" for anything other than their own selves. As such, the laws and governing bodies established for the purpose of governing Homo sapiens sapiens must be considered inapplicable to Homo sapiens novus. In this, it becomes impossible and absurd to require that any nova follow baseline conventions. We are not (self-centred) human, and human practices, no matter how well meaning, are incapable of being applicable to any being of a higher existential stance. Until a common governing body, composed entirely of novas qualified to hold authority, is recognized by the majority of the nova population, then it is the duty of every Homo Sapiens Novus to govern himself or herself as he or she sees fit. Just as it is preposterous to ask humans to abide by the strictures of prehistoric society, any attempt to force a nova to abide by the practices of human society must be seen as an attack on the rights of the individual nova.

Be the rare individuals that you were created to be. Realize what it is to be a member of the One Race! Explore yourselves, your beliefs, and your motivations. Learn from your past and move on, and in moving on, take your place in the world as a living conduit of will. And just as importantly, help your brothers and sisters in the One Race to do the same.

Some will vilify you for this. You will be called 'monster'. 'Aberrant'. 'Revolutionary'. Even 'inhuman', though the people who label you as such will have no idea how wrong they are. People will fear and hate you for your power, but never lose your clarity! This is who we are. There is nothing wrong with acting humane or securely we so obviously are.

To allow or encourage any nova to wallow in the base and rapine pleasures of Homo sapiens sapiens is the very definition of pointless waste of a rare and valuable resource, and is the most saddeningly flagrant waste of potential imaginable. By squandering your gifts on petty baseline desires and vices, you mire yourself deeper in baseline ideology and morality, making your personal ascension all the more difficult. As the Marvels, Monsters, and Portents of a bold new age, it is both your birthright and your destiny to forge your own path, exclusive of any crippling or archaic influence. Do whatever you must, so long as you never cease doing, exploring and discovering what it is to be a member of the One Race.

We are our own nation; to be nova is to transcend the baselines from which we evolved. We want only to live in accord with the promptings, which come from our true selves. Why is that so revolutionary? We exist beyond common comprehension, and while we have yet to define our own laws, we must have the space and freedom necessary to chart our own course. Only those novas who are too lazy or too comfortable to think for themselves, to judge and regulate their own behavior accordingly, obey baseline conventions. True members of the One Race sense their own laws within them; things are forbidden to them that a common baseline will do any day of the year, and other things are allowed to them that are generally despised. Each nova must stand on her or his own feet. I beseech all members of Homo sapiens novus to follow the path that will take them to a better understanding of what and who they are. This will require courage, but the chick that fears the outside world dies in its egg. To be born, the One Race must destroy it's egg and, in time, fly. For this we are slandered, but we cannot claim surprise. Those few powerful individuals with courage and character have always seemed sinister to the rest. Anything that threatens the calm in which the baselines live they call "revolutionary". They have become nervous because they realize that with the coming of the One Race the rules by which they have lived are no longer valid. The labels they affix to us are of no concern. We cannot and will not apologize for a difference this fundamental. We must explore what it is to be nova, not for the betterment of the baselines, but for the betterment of the novas. Perhaps there are some novas who prefer to stay with the baseline herd for the warmth it provides. I say obtain your warmth from equals. Intellectuals do not require the companionship of barbarians, and likewise, novas do not require the companionship of baselines. We are destined to make a strange and terrible journey, and this we cannot do alone. While each nova must walk his or her own path we must gather and share our knowledge and our companionship. We are at the gates of a glorious new age, and we must take the first steps towards our destiny; to do this we need to be one. Realize that it is only novas who can lead this journey. Homo sapiens sapiens had its chance -- it is now the age of the One Race.

Whosoever would be creator, must first destroy, and in the age of the One Race, a terrible angel is loosed, preparing his grand creation...
