Short stories and articles of thought

Cold hard Cash.

Whether you are using the Pound, Lira, Bitcoin, USD, or Looney. You’re using a general purpose currency. First and foremost these currencies are used to secure the essentials in life food, water, housing. Cash will guarantee you the bottom tiers of Maslow’s hierarchy but it can’t guarantee you respect, influence, purpose, or help with self-actualization. (The highest tiers of Maslow’s hierarchy).

This is exactly why those who have never experienced financial problems will tell you that money will not solve all your problems. Because money no matter how much of it you have (Looking at you Bill and Jeff) money can not be exchanged to fulfill these needs. In fact, it may actually be a hindrance if there is such disparity between your wealth and the wealth of those around you as to create jealousy. Yes, it may actually be counter productive to be the Jones’s (or Kardashians).

The pursuit of Cash is currently a gun to the head of workers, welfare recipient’s, and anyone whose trades their Cash for food.

Aside:

Picasso rarely carried cash. Instead he would trade doodles for cigarettes, meals, or be provided for by his estate. Well certified doodles go for hundred’s of dollars on Ebay to this day.

Picasso was trading his fame for his needs. He certainly wasn’t trading talent or effort of a quick doodle but his signature is what made the doodle worth more than the half dollar he would have spent buying the whatever in 1960’s Spain.

Return:

Whether you have 100k in savings or you are waiting for your next paycheck to clear the bank before you go grocery shopping. You trade Cash for food. If you don’t have money you don’t have food.

So starts the process. You trade X for money because of someone else’s Y.

X = Time (T) multiple by your level of Skill (S) plus your Influence (I) minus your ignorance (i), all of that under the market’s need for your services (MN) = (MN)/((TxS)+(I-i)

Y = demand

/// Ugh, I give up///

The point I’m trying to lay the foundation for is that without cash being directly exchanged for food and other essential needs it is useless. So long as Cash is what can secure yourself the bottom tiers of safety, security, food, water, etc it is essentially trading violence or threat of death for goods and services.

Why is this sooooo hard set the foundation for.

  • Checks notes –

I know that it’s a valid observation once stated but since I am directing this argument to those who have only ever exchanged Cash for Status. Example Buying an NFL team or Donating Money to build a ward of a hospital, which you put your name on. This is an exchange of cash for status which is the third tier of Maslow’s hierarchy.

I spend countless hours on these questions.

Assuming Cash is inherently violence / threat of death, how can one affect change in a non-violent manner?

I have a plan but my current plan is still build on the violence inherent in the system.

And how can I ethically use violence and threat of death to remove Cash from the system?

My current plan is such:

Step 1: Create a Fan-base for Western/Fantasy pulp Novellas

Use that income to fund a studio which can pump out a new Novella every month.

Step 2: After a five year run of the studio guarantee every employee 15% of there wages for life.

Meaning that after five years if you earned $40k/yr you’ll get $6k/yr every year for the rest of your life. Thereby removing the threat of death from any further service.

If I won the lottery today. I would immediately pour those resources into this project.

But I don’t even have the funds to advertise effectively and grow a fan-base for pulp fiction.

That’s why I’m working on The Council of Seven Project. I still need six other interested parties willing to work together. Trading two hours a week for mutual benefit.

Well take care for now,

It takes ten minutes

STOP!!!

STOP, right where you are

Remember what you had for lunch yesterday?

You ask your brain to recall the memory. The first thing it lays at your feet is a tasty dish from… when was that.. not yesterday… no, NO.. aw that’s what you ate.

This is where you realize your brain is either lying to you or incompetent. Your brain is dumb. You are an intelligent, hard-working, kind person but you haven’t made progress toward your dream… in how long?

I’ve seen the future of my coworkers. They work a brutal schedule five 9 to 10 hours (paid) a day with Saturdays off and one rotating day of, night shift to boot. Typically an hour drive each way. The labor itself is bending, lifting, and stacking up to 90lbs but an average lift of 20-30lbs (ideally 200 times an hour). The hardest workers make clerical wages and the technical workers operating heavy equipment and not doing a lot of lifting make less than a McDonald’s Assistant manager. It’s not surprising annual turnover is over 200%. This gig breaks people and it isn’t until they are broken that they leave.

Why do they wait until they pull a muscle or slip a disc before they even consider leaving? Because just like you their brains are dumb. Unlike you, they don’t know this fact.

It only takes ten minutes.

One of the most common habits of successful people is meditating. Meditation is a turn off for a normal duck. It’s hard. I can’t get my brain quit. I’d rather listen to the radio during the few minutes I have as alone time each day.

It’s an uncomfortable reality that for most ducks ten minutes alone with just them and their brain is PAINFUL.

Graduate to meditating daily like the multi-millionaire gurus you aspire to be like.

START by just listening to your brain for ten minutes.

Ask it the question, Any question really.

How am I going to get out of this situation? Why do I do this?

Listen to it’s answers. Some may be good. You need X dollars a month. You have a family to support. You need a degree.

Then ask it the next question.

WHY?

Here’s where you start to see through your brain’s bullshit.

Listen to it’s excuses. Consider them either valid or stupid. If they are stupid reasons: “Because, that’s the way it’s always been.” , “Because we don’t have a choice.” , “Because you can’t”. Then keep asking WHY until you get a VALID response.

If the response is valid ask your brain

HOW?

It’ll tell you.

The truth is that process was painful and your brain in it’s loving kindness for sanity. Doesn’t like to be called out like this. That’s why it begs for the TV to be turned on in the background. That’s why you listen to the radio. That’s why you can’t remember your lunch from yesterday at first ask. You’re brain wants to keep you SAFE and ALIVE but you need to put it on the spot if you ever want to be SUCCESSFUL and THRIVE.

The Replicator Defense

I want to live in a Star Trek future.

A world free of poverty, hunger, where all the sovereign nations co-exist peacefully.

Universal Basic Income (UBI) would be a step in this direction. But when talking with my fellow trekkies who believe we are living in a world of scarcity they fall quickly onto The Replicator Defense.

“Of course they have no poverty or hunger in Star Trek. They have replicators. They can just make food out of thin air.”

If there is anything that upsets a nerd more it’s the type of statement that invokes the response.

“Ummm… Actually.”

Replicators and even Protein Re-sequencers existed after the abolishion of poverty. In Star Trek canon this is due to the drastic decrease in population after World War 3. With a high level of technology and a massive decrease in population resulted in the creation of a post-scarcity society, with little to no governing authority preventing a drunk, Zefram Cochrane, from re-purposing a nuclear missile into a warp capable spaceship. (for fun)

Replicators just make the system easier… they were not the catalyst for the change in the first place.

People have a hard time accepting that with current farming techniques we can sustainably feed the worlds population (7 billion) three times over before we run into a scarcity of land over the preservation of unique and local ecosystems. We don’t have a resource problem. We have a distribution problem. We have an incentive problem.

There is no automatic incentive for feeding and housing people.

Capitalist hotels serve good food so that they can get repeat customers and earn a profit.

Communist hostels serve people good food because they depend on the social benefit those patrons add to the commune. If John starves he won’t be able to raise the hogs that make my favorite bacon dish.

Feudalist inn’s serve as quarters for the lords militia, a way station for merchants and travelers. The Inn-keeper was born into keeping, maintaining, and services expected of his position or else face punishment from his lord.

Egalitarian societies have never grown large enough to require the creation of a hotel/hostel/inn.

UBI creates a floor of value on every individuals life, regardless of birth, skill, or ability. It quantifies the charitable notion that no one deserves to starve to death for lack of resources as having value in capitalist economy.

No American Citizen Deserves to potentially Starve to Death.

That is why I support the Freedom Dividend as proposed by Andrew Yang.

With love as always,

Newsstand Pulp, Comic Spinners, Disney+, and why Harry Potter is the last great original IP franchise.

As a writer of novella’s my competition is every piece of media in existence, not just other books or movies, video games and YouTube as well, and even online click-bait articles from twitter or the FaceBook and fanfic hosted by WattPad. I am selling an hour and a half of entertainment after all.

A market theorist should argue that “With increased competition, the quality of the goods and services provided will increase as well.”

My starving artist friends argue that getting endorsed by an industry titan will provide financial success and legitimacy of their talents. My comic artist friends want contracts with Marvel or DC. My painters want their art on display and endorsed through high art circulations. Writers want a publishing deal with the Big 5. Musicians a record deal.

The current market is not a meritocracy. It looks that way on the surface and as long as people believe it’s operating fairly, my artist friends (you included) will not upset the institutions they seek validation from.

The current market is still an aristocracy but that is about to change.

If you want to skip the three narratives that I have based this theory on then skip ahead to these marks

_—_

Our story starts in the 1920s when newsstands became filled with pulp magazines. Competition was high. It bread Robert E. Howard. Competition was so high in fact that even the greats like the creator of Conan could not support themselves off of writing alone. Even being paid $0.01 a penny a word for a short story or serial part ($20 for 2k/ 4 pages), which is $0.15 in 2019 money (a 2k story would pay $300).

Competition was high on the newsstands, but there was no TV, no internet, no Facebook.

The 30s came around and a new beast started attacking the pulps dominance.

Comics.

By the 40s only a few Titans of pulp were left, comparable to today’s BIG 5 publishers. They would only accept the best the likes of Issac Asimov, but by the 1960s Competition was to high and what even the big magazines could afford to pay was too low to attract talent. The pulp magazine industry died somewhere in the early seventies a quite death.

Forty years is a good run but what happened to pulp magazines is what’s killing Comics.

In the 90s comics were still in every grocery store. A cheap impulse buy was the only barrier to keep up with the adventures of the Amazing Spider-Man. Accessible to everyone. Until one day they weren’t, the comic shops had opened and the speculator market was booming. Image Comics forced innovation from the big 2. This single extra step of going to a comics store prevented “normies” from buying comics, or the brands from attracting new fans. Licensing characters to Saturday morning TV (IMO) is responsible for creating the next generation of fans eager to watch batman/spider-man/MCU films.

Competition, since the 90s, is high but the inconvenience barrier of the comic book stores prevents access to a casual audience. The direct market, comic bookstores, continue to lose customers. Sept 2019’s number 1 comic was Spawn 300 which sold an est 262,599 units while the number 10 sold Harleen issue 1 sold 84,785. For point of reference, keep in mind that Wonder Woman was the reworked in the late 60s because it was selling only around 200,000 copies a month for an average issue. (known as the Mod ERA)

Sales are so low that Disney owned Marvel is considering shutting down the comics book division.

Disney sits at the top of the market place right now. They want to leverage this position to run Disney+ and make that sweet Netflix money. Competition in the streaming service center is now high. Access is also getting harder.

Lets go back to before cable, Disney use to air it’s movies on regular television. Then once cable came along and VHS, Disney switched to a direct to customer model. Selling it’s classic films for limited time to customers who didn’t have cable and locking their films behind the cable pay wall. They turned away 80s children who now didn’t have access to their films. Then in the 90s when they became dependent on those same 80s children to watch their films, no one showed up to the theatre. Disney almost went bankrupt before the Pirates franchise saved them in the early 2000s.

Disney+ will do the same for the Disney corporation, when they depend on the adults and parents of 2030 to show up to the theatre.

Now the short answer as to why Harry Potter will be the last great original IP.

Harry Potter books came out in the 90s. Where was there audience exposed to them? What was there competition?

Scholastic Book Fairs

90s children had little internet, no cell phones, comic books were in comic stores.

Before the movies were released, this series of books was able build a hardcore base over the course of four years then it’s movie releases brought more people into the books. Growing each year as children aged up and were exposed to the books at the book fair and the movies all over television. In 2005 cable became mandatory as the FCC demanded that all TV convert to HD by 2005. Which meant that more people had access to catch the first three Harry Potter films on marathon every other week.

Children today and for the foreseeable future will have unlimited access, to everything. Clint Eastwood’s man with no name trilogy, the death of superman, The entire discography of Prince. Whatever they, or you want, is just a couple of taps away from the palm of your hand. And that’s if they are in the mood to spend or search pirate bay. YouTube, Twitch, TikTok, Reddit, Wattpad all provide free alternatives to keep you entertained.

_—_

Competition could not be higher.

Access by everyone for everything is high.

Convenience of Access is being limited only by the Titans themselves.

I have a plan, a theory, and a mission. But I can not do this alone.

The Future is not individual artist competing against each other.

The Future is small groups of artists functioning as one for each other.

The larger and more unified the artist group the more effective they will be as individuals.

I’m bringing together seven independent authors whose target audience is men ages 18-25+.

As the Magnificent Seven remarks.

“Men are Cheaper than Rifles.”

Right Now there are two requirements for a seat on this council

          1. You must have at least one professionally edited publish work for sale. (one mistake per 10k words)

          2. You are willing to spent at least 2 hours a week for the promotion and success of the council.

E-mail me at hppofantasywestern@yahoo.com

The first applicant to meet the requirements will be accepted immediately. Then applicants will be approved through an interview process and by a majority vote of the sitting members of the council until all seven positions have been filled. The last approved member of the council will get amazon and goodreads reviews from the sitting six members, As the first order of the council’s business.

Whether first or last you’ll be a winner, if you join a winning team.

I also want to make this clear. I don’t want your money. I want to help you sell books. I want to sell more books. I want to use the skills I have to best serve the other members of the council, in exchange for promotion, legitimacy and audience sharing. If you want these things as well and you’re willing to spend two hours of your time each week trading support for support.

Then let’s work together.

Send these to anyone author you know might be interested.

With Love,

I-601 plea to allow my wife to stay in the USA, Work in progress.

I must write a letter to the immigration officer explaining that if my wife is removed from the country it will cause me “great and extreme” hardship. In order for her to attain a waiver for failing to meet an immigration requirement. This is what I have so far:

 

 

To you, the civil officer with sole discretion of my future and current well-being,

This is the most important letter I may ever write. More than simply stating the truth that “if my wife, Lalita, is deported my life, destiny, and trust in America will be irrevocably burdened”. More than that I must provide evidence of my claim, pray that the sway of your heart is soft, that you are in generally high spirits, and that a hundred other factors, of which I have no control or even ability to fathom, align today for a favorable verdict. Even the sting of a paper-cut or the hunger pangs from your upcoming lunch could force my plea on deaf ears. So it is with tears streaming that I write this, filled with hope that you’ve been of good spirits, satisfied with hot beverage and hearty food, with a heart overflowing with love and grace. My happiness, safety, and future depends as much on the facts of my case as it does on how well your disposition sits today.

Economically I will be ruined, if this waiver is not approved.

Lalita and I are in process of buying our first home, we have put our earnest money down and construction will be finished around may of 2020. Her income goes primarily to rent our apartment rent, which I will be unable to maintain along with my current level of debt, on my income alone. Without her I will be forced to sell everything we’ve worked for, file for bankruptcy, and hope that I can prevent homelessness and hunger on my income alone. At this point though with our savings depleted and the cost of living maintaining a life in Colorado very high, that even after bankruptcy, forfeiture of our future home, I will need to relocate and depend on the kindness of my friends and family so that I will be able to work and save money to follow my wife back to her homeland and live there. If I work six days a week, am fortunate enough to rely on the generosity of my friends for housing, I would be back in her arms in less than six or seven months. I’m not a stranger to hardship, having given four years of distinguished service to the USS Jimmy Carter and If this waiver is denied, understand that while our future in America is over, our future and our love will continue separated by only a momentary hardship no greater than a year.

Emotionally I am quite unsure as to my future, without her ever present in my daily life.

I have not been without Lalita for more than five days, since October of 2014. And it is with an unsteady heart that I even dare imagine, how a separation of months would weight on me. Even if this plea is denied at the very least I will be able to rest a peaceful night’s sleep, for the course of my life will once again be in my hands. It is currently a terrible state for me to imagine a cold bed, life bereft of her warmth and laughter. But while our fate is in limbo and awaiting your decision we will continue to build our family, work our labors, and act as though your decision will be a positive one. If though deportation is the decision, then I will not be the same man I am today. I strive to be the best person I can be for her and work with joy in my heart knowing without doubt that she is there for me as I am for here. And no amount of physical distant would lessen the love that I feel for her or the exercises I take to become better as her husband.

Honestly the writing of the letter has caused more tears and heart ache over the hours and days spent rereading, rewriting, and re-imagining the emptiness my life would be without her smile and kiss, for only just a short period of time as decided by the capabilities of my resources and the willingness of the state to allow for her continued stay.

With humility, anxiety, and grace I await your verdict,

Maxwell C. Stannard

Even if the evidence I’ve provided and my plea is insufficient to be blessed with a positive outcome, I still wish the best for you and understand that there are those with greater needs then me and my wife.

 

– I would like to keep the letter to a single page and free of dense or abstract prose but I need this to be of the highest quality. And while my skills as a writer improve weekly, my ability to put comma’s and colons where they need be is far from academic levels. Every penny I have is tied up with the purchase of our home and I can not afford legal help with this matter.

– I think the scariest thing is that this isn’t a simple matter of pleading and explaining before a judge our case but that we must do so based on this letter and evidence provided that I will become homeless, possibly depressed, and suffer greatly unless the civil worker who has full authority, and solely by their discretionary judgement decides that we qualify as an exception based on the evidence provide and the convincing argument of this letter.

 

any and all help would be a great. If this letter does it’s job and tears you up even a little bit. (Writing it sure has caused a drought and itch in my tear ducks). I NEED to know that as well.

 

Thank you for your time and with love,

A letter to my highschool economics teacher.

I’m glad that my meme’s are provoking thought but they are first and foremost propaganda so that my friends and family believe and value themselves more than how a company treats them poorly. While my pay is mathematically (according to inflation calculations that include medial and housing) far below the media income of the 1950s or the federal minimum wage that was set in the late 70s, I love my job. I only work three nights a week and earn enough to pay my portion of the bills. It gives me the time and opportunity to work on my novellas and pursue a career writing stories that hopefully will promote literacy for men age 18-25, who have been taught by school that reading is for nerds and girls.

Now onto what I really think about businesses in general, they are not evil organizations out only for the bottom line. Meritorious advancement exists as a function of a healthy market, If you are not advancing your best employees your competition will. They will gain market share and put you out of business. If you treat your employees to poor they will quit and you will be unable to preform the companies function. These are the reasons why we have such great working conditions.

Yet people need to understand that if they are using cognitive dissonance to excuse their company they must separate their identity from the company before they can make healthy decisions regarding their life. Most my memes are to this point. The company is out for profit not your welfare.

I truly believe we are kept from a full communist revolution because most companies are public traded. Rational people understand that a company exists to provide a good or service and that the CEO and board make decisions to maximize the profits for the share holders. Such shares that can be purchased by the very employees that the company employees. For example US Foods, which just purchased the company I work for, has 25,000 employees and 35% equity retained within the company. Which means that 65% is publicly extended for purchase at about 40$ per share, IF the employees wanted to they could become the principal shareholders for $12,500 each. If they want 51% collaborative voting rights that would be 65,800 each. But they don’t, they have the choice and they would rather keep their coin then make their company work for them. Publicly owned companies dominate because they have the power of the people financing them, their is a hard cap on the resources a privately owned company can call to bear.

I use this argument to explain why a CEO deserves 250x the wage of the lowest paid worker, because his/her wage is determined by the value added to the shareholders whom the low wage workers choose not to be.

Second and this is the point of most of my memes, If a company is treating you unfairly. You need to leave. Because unlike buying a car when an individual is negotiating with a company they are actually negotiating not for themselves but for the next guy. I have been made aware of companies that have raised their starting wage because after months of finding suitable candidates that turn down the offered position due to pay and benefits.

If you’d like an IRL example at my wife’s work, she has received healthcare benefits and pay raises because other people have left her position and stated healthcare and pay were their primary concern. Is she still underpaid, according to similar market positions, yes by about $2 per hour. But she loves her job and we do not work for money. After her company raises benefits and wages, they do not call back old employees who left over those concerns. Instead the new hires and my wife reap the rewards of people making the best market choice for themselves.

Now let me explain why the freedom dividend will do so much more to improve a healthy working relationship between employee and employer. 1K per month is not enough money for an individual to stop working and enjoy the offerings that minimum wage work provides. People will still work if they want cable, Netflix, internet, Iphones, dinners out, etc. But it will Provide courage to those who are in low wage jobs that barely pay the rent to ask for more or leave thus providing more the next guy. It is just enough money to prevent homelessness and allow people the freedom to move away from the Democratic socialist dens of NY, Denver, CALI and form smaller communities among the country side, with a guaranteed income moving across state lines to pursue employment at a job that might not work out is less of a threatening proposition. Many people are moving to CO because we offer higher wages, we do so because we have higher cost of living, Some will be able to move back after saving money for a few years. Others will never be able to move back because the wages offered by their home city wouldn’t be enough for them to make minimum payments on their credit cards.

Okay enough of that,

I use OpenOffice writer (Apache suites) and spell check through e-mail, a free writing software with no spell check.

And yeah I hope in the future people are working not because the choice is that or starvation and homelessness but because like me they enjoy the work they are doing.

Because until I can raise enough funds through selling my novellas to open a studio dedicated to their production, I need a day job. You can help on this front of course, My premiere work is only 99 cents for the eBook. It’s target audience is men 18-25. I know this isn’t you but your reach is vast and if you give it read, endorse my efforts. I’m sure you know exactly who to pass this onto with your blessing so that it can continue to reach young minds, raise reading speeds, and rekindle the lost love of literacy in the next generation.

Let me know if you would like me to provide you with a free copy. While I am trying to raise funds to further improve the quality and reach of this program, what’s important is the end result.

For instance my beta-reader after reading this within a week, started and finished DUNE in under 2 months. He had taken a 2 year break from reading longer works and wasn’t considering starting again.

(Note: this book contains sex in the second half of Act 3 – Longhorn Gold and Criostal) (this is not erotica and that portion can be skipped without any negative effects on the plot.)

Here is a link if you choose to help I’d be ever so grateful,

Much love,

I have a pattern of breaking myself

I just received a text from a fellow trying to leverage the courses his paid for to become a real estate investor. He’s been attempting to break free from the 9-5 life for almost a decade and he asked me a question.

“What I don’t understand, is why don’t we always do the things that are in our best interest, and none of the things that don’t serve us.”

-Future millionaire friend post the year of our lord 2019

The answer is simple… well simply complicated. This is a broad question and their are very specific answers for very specific patterns of behavior or unserving bad habits. Generalizations are not going to help here.

But that’s not what I wanted to talk about in the first place.

I first asked this when I was maybe thirteen. I thought at the time I was clever and I could figure it out. I was after all a smart boy, educationally bored and problems like this I could dwell on til I had an answer I deemed suitable.

First I made the question simpler

“Why am I doing things that I don’t 100% want to do because I know aspects of them are bad?”

Things like

Why am I teasing my friend for his failed attempt to draw ghastly? Why don’t I answer all the questions on the quiz? Why don’t I like eating vegetables? Why did I steal that thing? Why do I occasionally drop everything and focus everything on one specific aspect of a task like an annual retentive accountant? Why am I thinking dirty thoughts instead of focusing the math homework?

What I understood then was that each of these things that I was doing was in service to a need that I had but not all my needs as a person. Stealing got me the object of my desire but left me with guilt becuase god says it’s wrong so now I feel bad. Bee tea dubs stealing is wrong unless its inspiration or art or method.

So this is when I broke myself apart to figure out why half of me could be fore something and half could be against it. Or in some cases how twenty percent could take control and do it anyways.

I took the general motivations I as best as I understood them and created a council room within my mind for them to meet and discuss the business of life. I sit as always at the head to my left sits the first chair but all chairs are equal. (This bugs me that even as a child with no knowledge of military seating etiquette. I managed to solve the problem of having a rectangular board room table but distance from the head of the table did not create an implicit rank between the board members. By leaving the chair on my right side empty for guests every member present was equally separated and not therefore equal in voice, votes, and authority though a standard meeting starts from left and ends on the empty or guest chair.)

Well, the first chair sits myself in a leather jacket, long rebellious hair, and a quite curt demeanor. He is in change with aspects of myself that pertain to image, social influence, status, reputation. Basically the Fonz of my brain letting me know how a given course of action will affect me socially. The public relations officer if you will.

Then to his left sits myself rather thinner wearing glasses, a lab coat, a short unkempt but regularly trimmed haircut. His role is to simply tell me the odds of success, cost benefit analysis, and general inquiries needed to raise the quality of data available for future decisions or more accurate predictions. This is the head of my R&D division.

To his left, and at the tail of the table, sits myself bearded in robes with a funny hat and fluctuating religious adornments. Sometimes deacon-like color schemes or wearing a Buddhistic piety cut. His appearance is never static. His role is guide me morally, ethically, and righteously through life as any spiritual advisor would. His arguments come largely from christian teachings but he will incorporate all other available religious teachings as well. Unfortunate Corporations don’t have souls and therefore moral guidance does not have a seat or position within a company’s board room. So there is no corporate equivalent job title but as far as a military command he would literally by the Chaplin.

To his left, now ascending the right hand side of the table. Sits myself in full military regalia, a five star general, military fade cut weekly, the most muscular build of myself, as well as the rudest. He speaks for authority, discipline, and how to concisely achieve victory. The chief of operations or COO would be the corporate equivalent. General Order is about stratagem, resources, and whether or not a course of action is lawful.

To his left is my penis, an unimaginative representation of myself wearing a mushroom capped flesh toned German M35 steel helmet. Yeah I was going through puberty at the time and providing representation to the hormonal screams of my body was and still is important. Otherwise ignoring his thought process leads to unexpected outcomes when shareholders vote over a given course of action. Because he is a strong shareholder within the boardroom of my brain. Suffice it to say his advice will often be “Fuck it!” or “Fuck it hard!” or “Fuck it gently.” or the classic “I don’t give a fuck.”

Then there sits an empty chair and beyond that at the head of the table sits myself, without body.

This helped me discover a few of the reasons why I did things that I shouldn’t be.

Why did I steal that?

Because now you have another item that adds to your social status. It’s what’s cool

It was very likely to succeed. I saw no cause to raise the alarm.

I was out voted. Don’t steal.

While success was likely the consequences of a failed attempt would have been disaster. Don’t do that again without first consulting us.

Nice. Fuck that guy am I right.

Well there you have it a peak behind the framework that I use to deliberate future courses of action when I have time to internally debate whether or not any idea is a good idea or bad one.

Much Love,
