    Will = A term used to refer to the focus of an organism's aggregate energies or patterns - processes.
    Connecting this to Self, it is the ego's focus, of the Self, the sum of all past, upon an objective.


    The word has no meaning outside consciousness, and since consciousness only emerges from organism, and organism is founded on the connecting of a continuum, as code, memory, we can say that the sum of this causal chain, encoded as memory is directed in the Flux (interactivity of existence), by will.
    Will is the ego's focus. Self-awareness turned outward, projecting this interpretation of self as a way of orienting and motivating self to move toward a direction, or toward a goal.
    The abstraction acts as an orientation idea(l), using to position self in relation to objective and to map our a course of action, and to establish meaning, or the web of inter-relations between perceived patterns, and/or phenomena.
    The degree of focus determines the aggregate energy's force, in relation to the intervening obstacles of phenomena, and the organism's control over itself.

    One will what one does not posses.
    To will means to be directed toward an objective by need/desire, based on a projected evolution - expectation.
    Only the organism via its will, can take the path-of-more-resistance. All else follows blindly, the path-of-least-resistance.
    The path is this (inter)action, and this (inter)action is attraction/repulsion, or how patterns harmonize, how they relate.
    Base creatures, such as Zombies, only move, are motivated, by hunger, so they move towards what will satisfy a hunger for flesh and blood.
    For such creatures, like Zombies and Vampires, there is no higher objective than survival.
    they've developed a spirituality, masking as metaphysical, this need to survive. They place nothing above it and so they sacrifice everything and anything to it: integrity, nobility, pride, honesty, self-respect.
    The occult is used to cloud the motive in mysticism.
    They have no shame when it comes to this.
    Survival means keeping others nearby to feed off of.
    Even Vampires and Zombies are social.
    Vampires build an entire cult on subterranean mausoleums where the hide form daylight, and gather the herds they feed of of.
    They have an in-group hierarchy, and have developed the virus, have adjusted it, to contribute to their parasitism.
    Virus linguistically confuses the potential 'victim', placing it in a sort of erotic state.
    This is why Vampires have often been depicted as erotic.
    Vampires prefer not to kill the host. They want to keep it on the edge of life and death, accessible to them, producing the blood they need.
    This state of living-death, is Zombification.

    But the host dries up after decades of draining.
    Then the parasite, we've named vampire, moves to another host.

    Virus confuses the noumenon for the phenomenon, the ideal for the real, the abstraction for the dynamic.
    It inverts the relationship of represented with representation.
    A turning inward, away from a disturbing, threatening, uncertain world, towards the esoteric where things are more predictable, safe, malleable.  
    Vampires have been exploiting this for centuries. Well documented history exposes their peddling of superposition, taking advantage of the host's lowest, most ignorant and desperate members.
    Among the living-dead they rule.
    Zombification is an infection caused by their fangs entering the neck of the host they parasetize.
    Vampire's virus triggers the host's virus until the host is eaten alive from the inside out.

    Vermin prefer the dark (occult), and this one has renamed darkness in-sight - esoteric sight.
    They peddle dreams and desires, in the form of words/symbols, such as money.
    They exploit the host's simplification of collective wisdom, into narratives the mediocre can digest and discipline themselves to, exploiting their literal interpretations and the common mind's inability to differentiate representational art from pragmatic reality.
    This is their 'secret' insight.
    The representation is literal and superior to the represented.
    Top<>Down emoting. Begin with the idea(l) and then use the real to justify it.
    begin with the answer, the solution to what is troubling, and then sample reality to validate it.
    Begin with the abstraction, the metaphor, with the symbol, and adjust/adapt the experienced world around it.
    Symbols/Words forcing world to adapt to them, rather then them adapting to world.
    Everything and anything can be justified and validated, changing the criterion of superior/inferior to that of what is most seductive, most pleasing, most promising - salesman bread and butter.
    The world is already assumed to be positive, benevolent, full of hope, love...conscious.
    The living-dead become the new living.
    Death and life is also inverted.
    The world becomes the dream, and the dream becomes the world - subjectivity of the somnambulist.
    To dream away reality. To idealize the safe, warm space where all are permitted to dream, the possible dream - each in their own private reality, or the more creative dreamers assimilated the less creative into a shared dream - communal daydreaming.
    Occult refers to the sacred, secret, practices of the dream-weavers.

    Zombie can be understood as the one who lives in his own mind - hunger/thirst is his only connection to the real, because he needs sustenance to continue dreaming; this need/suffering his last connection to the real world.
    In all other respects he is lost to it. Without this external trigger the Zombie stands in place, or bumps against walls, unable to see anything in world except when he is roused by an internal hunger.
    Virus is what places the mind in a state f perpetual comma.
    That's when the dreams become deep and vivid.
    Dreamer may die if awakened, and he would prefer to return to sleep.
    His body atrophies, when he only walks in his internal, private world; in his dreams. In time he cannot survive awake. He needs a system to keep him alive and comfortably asleep.
    Sweet lullabies, helping him drift away. He is alive, but dead.

    Artificial = the point at which the interventions of the organism upon its environment begin to affect the organism more than the environment it intervened upon.
    Natural = an environment where the organism did not intervene to bring it about.  


    Life as a agency, an actor, interacts with the environment wilfully - intentionally, with a motive, an objective.
    All life intervenes upon its environment. But none, except man, to a degree where these interventions reflect back, as interactions, more than the environment intervened upon.
    Man begins to become an agency of its own faith.
    These interventions upon preexisting natural processes have collateral effects.
    Those that are 'negative' and force man to intervene further, or affect man negatively, are called 'pollution'.
    Pollution can be external, and internal.
    Real and ideal.
    Genes also accumulate pollutants die to man's intervention on the natural process of culling - life and death.
    Some may trigger inert gene sequences (memories) and produce 'positive' outcomes, but most produce negative mutations. These genetic mutations (memories) accumulate, like garbage piles - byproduct of man intervening no nature's frugality to produce artificial excess.
    In the mind this 'excess' is experienced as ennui, if it is not directed towards creativity - both negative and positive.
    Brain is gradually liberated from the demands of dealing with world (need/suffering), producing excess energies that have to be expunged.
    This excess is mistaken as a product of the individual's power, its quality, resulting in narcissism and a sense of entitlement.  
    Mediocrity has no way to expunge excess energies other than the base - food drink, to numb it, and hyperbole in all areas (sex, risk, art).
    Boredom is dealt with by modern systems using entertainment, self-medication, excess in all forms, from loud noise, called music, exalting the self to sexual perversity.
    Everything is hyper-inflated.
    Ego becomes a world of its own. Permitted to inflate itself to any size if it does not disrupt the hyper-inflation of his neighbour's.  
    Bubble world. Spheres bouncing off one another, with a tiny mind buried in the centre of all that hot-air.
    An artificial womb, of plasticity.
    Stretched far enough it becomes as thin as a soap-bubble, unable to cope with any external pressure.
    Self-contained, self-referential, perceiving the outside through thin film that can be coloured rose, or blue; as delicate as it is appealing - children call it 'fun'. The inside separated into different bubble segments - compartmentalization.


    Large ego full of empty space/time, appropriating large expanses, beyond their ability to contain for long, and without the 'right' conditions helping them.

    Order = repeating, consistent, predictable, sequence - pattern
    Chaos/Randomness - non-repeating, inconsistent, unpredictable, non-sequence - non-pattern

    Both order and chaos are dynamic processes, differing only in their consistency.

    Complexity is not chaos.
    Complexity implies order that is not perceived - it presupposes it. Awaiting projections, if it is not discovered.

    Chaos cannot be perceived directly because the mind is a forager of order, being dependent on it, being ordering itself.
    Random energies cannot create balanced unities, like ordered patterns can, so they cannot reach a level where they can be perceived by an organism that only evolved the minimal sensual acuity to interpret world enough to ephemerally survive in it - dependent on the time required to reproduce.
    Reproduction is how life deals with Flux.
    Chaos is Incorporated in the presence which appears to consciousness. presence is translated (interpreted) as appearance.

    The virus convinces the organism that all is ordered, god, because in the mind all is, indeed ordered. The noetic is always ordered.
    It explains all paradoxes as a product of its ignorance, its own inability to see properly (wrong attitude), or of an evil, a malicious mind.
    Abstractions are simplifications/generalization of a fluid existence, given a symbol (name, number), so all paradoxes are expressed as the contradiction of language by experienced reality.
    In the conflict the mind wants to side with itself (language - subjective), and the virus helps it do so.
    The average organism is too cowardly, too simple to disregard its own self-interests and become objective.
    Objectivity, in this context, would be the perception of self, and world, as an indifferent external mind.
    Its inability to project itself to a third-person perspective is exploited by parasites, who do so for it, and then give it this perspective, clouded with their own self-interests.
    The infected mind mistakes this alienating perspective as a product of its objectivity.
    Its self-interests are replaced with an inflated and slightly modified version of another's.
    Hope, flattery, pleasure, are used to deal with any lingering doubts.
    The Vampire parasite, in particular, has developed in its long history of parasitism, a very effective alternate reality, based on words/symbols.

    Uncertainty in world (chaos) becomes an immanent, occult, order, making all need/suffering tolerable.
    This is the insinuation of defining chaos as complexity: a secret hidden order, that has yet to be revealed. A hidden order that can be conscious, and so can be reasoned with , pleaded with, bribed, swayed by a payment, a sacrifice.

    In Zombie Apocalyptic times if you can think it and name it and speak of it, then it exists, and therefore it is up to the denier to prove that it does not.
    All is inverted.
    Negative, as ignorance, becomes a validation; the absence of absolute knowledge means everything and anything is possible.
    Negative, as a positive, to be negated; prove a negative, or it remains a positive.
    Negative as absolute parity; all is equally nil. Negative as Absolute.
    Bipolar Nihilism - the psychosis of the Modern Zombie: pure and 'positive' nihilism.

    So, to speak of god, in the Abrahamic  way, is to make the idea real, forcing the disbelievers to prove that it does not exist, outside the mind.
    Then we can spend decades, nay, a lifetime, debating a concept that was imagined and then declared as 'existing', and the fact that this convinced billions of imbeciles, converting them to Zombies validates its existence.
    At this point you can imagine anything and everything and simply make this fantasy so attractive that it becomes popular. It's a matter of marketing.
    inter-Subjectivty.
    Fabricate any synthesis of ideals, any fantastic alternate reality; make it hopeful, attractive, inspiring, promising, pleasing, and then use human insecurity to promote it, making it as popular as possible.....this suffices to make it 'rational'.
    The criterion shifts from empiricism to populist.
    Psychology becomes a creative force - politics, marketing.
    This is what the Zombie nation calls 'philosophy', and 'positive' thinking....open-mindedness.
    Anything is possible if....IF it is positive enough....and a little self-consistent to not make it completely ridiculous.
    All about using words/symbols in the right sequence to trigger these sensations in potential Zombies.
    Vampires realizes this a long time ago, because they were the first 'victims' - patient X.
    If they could deceive themselves then how can they not deceive others?


    Connecting a concept to reality restricts its utility.
    It has to remain ambiguous enough, like Pollock's fArt  so that the potential buyer can project into it whatever psychosis is dominating his/her subconscious.
    Insinuate, obfuscate, remain vague, explain by not explaining - spin doctoring.
    The motive is not to connect to world, but the reverse, to turn away from it, to connect to another and use him/her as a proxy to evade world.
    The 'victim' benefits because it become senseless - it feels very little coming from world. Zombie is rotting - its nerve cells numb.
    Everything it feels is inside of it - like the Zombie's hunger, like the Vampire's thirst.      
    All else is distant abstractions swimming in its mind - obstacles to navigate on its way towards the gratification of its thirst/hunger.

    If my symbols can be connected into eloquent, intricate patterns, then there is meaning; symbols referring to symbols, words to text full of words.
    Minds referring and deferring to minds - all is MIND.
    Name dropping, Idolatry.
    With no natural order to inhibit the initiation the method is an unquenchable source of self-gratification: reinterpreting, resynthesizing, redefining, renaming....gods recreating reality.
    In Zombie/Vampire dreams he is a god of virility and health, feeding on the ill - retribution.

    That I write allegorically does not mean I write about what cannot be experienced.
    That I use metaphor does not mean my metaphors are void of substance.
    All language is metaphorical, as all art is representational.
    It is the degree to which it refers to the world (exoteric), or to one's reaction to it (esoteric), that makes the difference.  

    As an example of a parasite I present the Gypsies:



    The virus inverts everything.


    Known as thieves, dabbling in superposition (palm reading, magic peddling etc), begging and selling, they share the parasitical traits of refusing to be assimilated, and refusing to live off the land; of having an in-group and an out-group morality; of being shameless, having no loyalty towards the host they intestate.
    They exploit the host's morals, his pity, his kindness....they exploit the host's weakest members, the simplest, the desperate, the needy, the gullible.
    The difference to the Vampire parasite is that they did not practice the type of in-breeding eugenics to cultivate talents in semiotics.
    They focused more of thieving and begging.
    The virus remains unknown to them, though they are infected. They never turned inward to study themselves.
    Rather they cultivated a joy in living; music, dance...a romantic carefree attitude of the bohemian wanderer.
    Something that became fashionable during the decade when the virus reached its apex among the infected Zombies.
    They were renamed Hippies then.
    It was then when the virus morphed from it Zombie effect to what would later be known as post-modernity, or cultural-Marxism.  
    A way of legitimizing hedonism...another example of repackaging and renaming what is ancient; adapting ti to a new generation of potential hosts.
    Fresh minds to infect.  
    The virus survives because it changes names when it is discovered.
    It is a memetic virus, after all.
    What was succeeded in the past is tweaked, given new words/symbols, and reintegrated into a fresh crop of future Zombies.
    Only Parasites do not change.
    They hide, they pretend, they cover themselves in new imagery, but their soul remains unchanged.
    They sample from every host they intestate, and modify what they take to harmonize with their parasitical spirit.

    Gypsies parasitize the physical, whereas Vampires parasitizes the spiritual, the mental.
    One takes of what you have, more masculine, the other takes of what you are - more feminine.

    What is harder to substantiate is a memetic virus, which is, by definition, an abstraction that works insidiously - psychologically.
    A psychological weakness expressed noetically, cannot be fully explained....but only through its effects on the organism.
    These are always tangible,
    When, and if, the diseased speaks, the nonsense is audible. When the diseases acts, it is uncertain if he acts in accordance with the memetic virus.
    An organism may be infected by an irrational dogma, and act rationally, choosing not to test its own professed ideology; choosing to contradict its own principles, either because it is uncertain about them, or because it wishes to maintain their 'purity', their theoretical 'perfection'.
    A Zombie may appear 'normal' until you spend time with it; until you come close.
    Then its mental disconnect from reality gradually becomes obvious - the time is determined the length of time it has been infected.
    Like the typical virus, it cannot be perceived....but only when it begins having a large enough effect on the host it is infecting - indirectly, through symtoms.
    It requires medication to get-by. Its behaviour is erratic, especially when medicated.
    Its self-control reduced by the medication making it prone to expose its inner turmoil, its esoteric distress....its inner wounds.
    The medication breaks down the defensive lies it uses to justify itself.
    The image it cultivates is proportional to what it feels most insecure about; the accusations it projects are self-criticisms unloaded upon a threatening other.  

    Let's take the largest Zombie nation on the planet, at this time.
    How does the US explain another nation's animosity, and criticism?
    It projects its deepest insecurity outward, so that it does not have to face the real reasons....so that it does not have to look at itself honestly.

    Survival Guide
    Strategies that work in post-apocalyptic, zombie infested, realities, depicted in movies, or in computer games and comic books, will work when dealing with these very real, Vampire and Zombies.

    Imagine yourself in a world where they are more than metaphors, because for all intents and purposes they are real - in behaviour, in 'thinking', in 'ambition, objectives etc.
    A shift from gene to meme, an inversion, will be required, because the inverted, living in a surreal, alternate reality, can only be dealt with on their level.  
    It's useless to try to deal with them as you would a real living organism, using reason, and logic, and references to phenomena.
    These are creatures of the UnderWorld. Their presence in this tangible world is but a shadow, a platonic ersatz.
    There's no point in hitting them, reasoning with them, engaging them in any way you are accustomed to.  
    These creatures 'exist' on another plain - physically they are present, but their mind is in a netherworld.
    There's no harmony between phenomena and noumena, in them....and this is depicted, in the narrative, as rotting flesh - decay.
    They are physically present, but mentally, psychologically, they are elsewhere - everywhere and nowhere.
    Like waking up in a pod.....the people are present in the other pods, but not really 'there'.



    In the noetic alternate reality you are strong, fast, brilliant, beautiful...you are whatever you want to be, within the 'logic' of the system....you can fly, you can bend time/space.....and then you awaken to the reality of your feebleness and confusion.
    Of course you want to go back to sleep. The temptation to return, is powerful; it follows you day and night, this obsession to become one with the collective hive mind.
    A realm where symbols/words are powerful beyond imagination. You can become anything there if only you abide by the program, rules; only if you do it through proper systemic avenues, disciplining yourself to its internal logic - its code.

    Ambition of every brain-dead creature of the UnderWorld is to construct and live within his own private matrix, populated by a variety of less creative brain-dead monstrosities - mutants permitted to breed.


    The Bible is full of allusions to consuming flesh, drinking blood.
    In the memetic worlds of man's psychosis (insane ape), metaphors become more than symbolic.
    Art imitating life, now becomes inverted to life imitating art.
    Simulacrum of a Simulation - representation of a representation.
    Three level of understanding, three levels of code: ideal/physical/metaphysical. The corporeal is encased in between the idealistic and the metaphysical.
    The real is pushed to the background.
    In the noetic realm the triad can be arranged in whichever way pleases the psychotic.
    All becomes code.



    Numbers and letters....synthesizing an alternate world, where the feeble become strong, the slave becomes masters, the idiot becomes genius.
    In the Matrix, the past is erased - forgotten.

    If we use the Platonic metaphor for the human psyche we are given the image of the charioteer:

    Reason <> Will <> Passions
    Mind <> Will <> Body
    The virus inverts this relationship, flips it around:
    Passions <> Will <> Reason
    Body <> Will <> Mind
    The body's pleasures, its need to survive, takes control of reason - corrupts it with desire and emotion.
    Will is squeezed between passions and a corrupted reason.
    The philosophical sequence is this:
    Metaphysics <> Physics <> Idealism
    The metaphysical is in control, via the physical, of ideology.
    Noumenon is placed before phenomenon: the phenomenon is now usurped by the noumenon - the idea(l) replaces the real.  
    Physical, corporeality, experienced existence (reality) is squeezed between metaphysics (mysticism), and idealism (theory) void of references in the real.
    The real is warped.
    If we keep in mind how this triad corresponds to the 'self' we will understand how language is forced to adapt/adjust to mystical metaphysics control of theoretical idealism.

    Mind <> Nervous System <> Body
    Inverted to...
    Body <> Nervous system <> Mind  
    Semiotics is the expression of the nervous system.
    The connector of mind with body, the physical with the mind's projections into the future.
    Past <> Present (appearance) <> Future

    Inverted to...
    Future <> Present <> Past
    This is progressiveness, in the Modern sense of the word.
    Past is controlled by the projected theoretical desirable future via the present.
    Language adjusted to this inversion is detached from reality and serves as a link between desire/need and an unruly (immutable) past. The past is rearranged to accommodate the future.  
    This is how the mental virus infects and corrupts the psyche.
    It inverts everything.
    In the Abrahamic triad the passions are replaced by an mystical force - god.
    Instead of God <> Holy Spirit <> Son (Christ) which is an inversion of the Hellenic triad.
    The Christian...
    God (father) <> Son (logos) <> Man (child)
    ...becomes in secular nihilism (Marxism)...
    God (State) <> Politics (logos) <> Man (tabula rasa)

    Language = art.
    In the service of the inverted triad it is fArt.
    Man projects as world his own reactions to world, and his own abstractions that can be used to cope with world.
    Art no longer imitates life but life imitates art.
    First came the word...

    Art can be dangerous when it is 'released' from its utility; when it is corrupted by desire/emotion.
    Detached from reality it no longer disciplines itself to natural order, but is 'free' to synthesize, memories, at will, controlled by desire/need.
    It now projects man's internal psychosis; his reaction to reality; his desperation and anxiety.
    Virus inverts.
    Passions in control, via will, of reason - desire/need, through man, projects theory.
    Language as the go-between has to be detached from the earthly, the worldly, the experienced, so as to be controlled by human need/desire, using language to project theories that are meaningless outside minds that can interpret the language 'properly'.
    The notion of worthiness, of belonging to a select group, a chosen special kind, that has been given access to this occult knowledge.
    Faith would be the sacrificing and/or the harnessing of reason to need/desire.
    Reason is degraded by the inversion, so the ego must be humbled/humiliated - the mind justifies this as a necessary sacrifice for the sake of 'eternal survival'.  



    "Zombies of the world UNITE!!!!", shouts the Vampire king, and the masses of living-dead gather to be saved, under the grace of his holy words.

    name withheld for his own safety wrote:Chapter 7 contained a great many rationalizations of Vampirism that would appear to be prime examples of deception and/or self-deception. Jacob
    Neusner (1987, 139) states of the 4th-century writers of Leviticus Rabbah that “the defeated people found refuge in a mode of thought that trained vision to see things otherwise than as the eyes perceived them,” a mode in which “things never are what they seem because they cannot be.”
    It would be difficult to find a more paradigmatic example of the role of self-deception in constructing religious ideology.
    Self-deception may be of general importance in the ability of Vampires to cope with anti-Parasitism. It has often been noted that the Vampire response to persecution, at least in traditional societies, has been an increase in religious fundamentalism, mysticism, and messianism.Vampirism’s response to historical events of a cataclysmic character normally takes two forms, first, renewed messianic speculation, and second, a renewed search in Scripture for relevant ideas, attitudes and historical paradigms” (Neusner 1986, 26;see also Johnson 1988, 260, 267; Scholem 1971). The general tendency has been to blame persecution on failure to obey Vampire law, a response which is a recurrent theme of the [covenant text withheld]. Indeed, the idea that Vampire suffering results from Vampires straying from their own law occurs almost like a constant drumbeat throughout the [covenant text withheld]—a constant reminder that the persecution of Vampires is not the result of their own behavior vis-à-vis Zombies but rather the result of their behavior vis-à-vis God.

    Underlined are the segments one ought to pay attention to if he wants to understand vampire psychology, or parasitism, in general
    The virus' contribution is evident in not wanting to see, but desiring to see 'otherwise than as the eyes perceived them'.
    Virus identified and named 'Nihilism'.

    name withheld for his own safety wrote:Because of their critical attitudes toward diaspora Vampires, Covenists have often been quite conscious of the mental fabrications of their coreligionists. Thus the historian Sir Louis Namier (1934, xxxvii–xxxviii) (himself an Anglican convert and Coven activist [Whitfield 1988]) describes the “better-class” liberal Vampire in pre-National Socialist Germany who

    "was high-minded, broad-minded, open-minded, and without roots, for he lacked the live touch with any living community…
    His conception of Vampirism merely as a religion was curiously superficial and self-contradictory. For that which distinguishes the Vampire religion in its modern form from, say, Zombie Unitarianism, is merely the national tradition which most of the adherents of Liberal or Reform Vampirism profess to reject. By refraining from complete amalgamation and by maintaining their separate racial and historical identity, of which they deny the existence, they have kept themselves suspended in mid-air—moral Luftmenschen, who provoke criticism among their own people and distrust among the non-Vampires. In reality, most of them were perfectly sincere within the limits of their own conscious thinking; they did not avow their insincerity even to themselves."

    Self-deception seems to be a common trait among the un-dead.
    They do not want to acknowledge their morbid condition, as a way of coping with life.

    Superstition rises as culture declines.
    It is when the order man creates, to give form to what is chaotic and complex, begins to show signs of temporal attrition, that man loses confidence in his own reason, in his own common sense, and turns to the supernatural to deal with the foreboding natural; it is when man grows weary of struggling against natural order, and uncompromising randomness that he desperately turns to his fantasies for guidance.
    Decay and darkness pulls the vermin out of their hiding places, wanting to feast on rotting corpses, echoing the sounds of flatulent internal fermentation, built-up over centuries of atrophy.
    The vulture circles pinpointing a coming death.
    A necessary part of the cycle.
    Diseases, viruses, parasites, all part of the circle of life.
    Without them there would be no rise of new beginnings.
    A strong man thinks of the disease as a test of his health. The weak man hates it, afraid that it will be too testing.
    Every creature has its place...even bugs; even imaginary vermin, like vampires and zombies.
    Some eat at you from the body's outside, others from the inside...a few from the mind.

    Those who survive are immune....for a while.
    Then, the vermin adapt, they evolve more clever tactics, and the cycle repeats.
    Shall we take this coming darkness as a cleansing challenge, or as a final comeuppance?
    The vermin will not die, as long as there are minds and bodies to feed off.
    They are what they've always been, and forever will be: a reminder of what complacency, and ingratitude does.

    Let us rejoice, then, for this coming Darkness will test our stamina, and will wipe away the products of our vanity.
