Subject matter: Video Games, virtual reality, eco-terrorism, lone Wolf-ism


Sorry there is no book cover to, um, judge. Only the subversive text.

Read it all, interesting read but says it all in the hermetic nature of his carefully padded aloneness.The fantastic life doesen't hold together, it's a cover for the supposed disintegration brought on in similar fashion as is exemplified by the beachboy single in my room, whereas he trips a similar mood.

There is a difference between staying alone for a time separated and being yourself and doing drugs fearless of that separation, but there is the other kind, lost with and within the, your primal element where the refuge is both : a place of escape and a place if imprisonment. There you get lost within a symbolic maze.

Thank you for finishing it. I agree with you, there is a difference. And yes, the drug doing was done in fear of separation. It was posh isolation. Inauthentic escape. You have analyzed this very well. Whether the flaw of the main character is a flaw in plot, hard to tell, like you said, maze-like. Thanks again. Peace.

I appreciate the amount of work and thought that went into it, and i hope i didn't give the impression of understating the value of that. And it does hold together as is, and the above listed comments may be seen as advertent portrayals rather then inadvertent psychological ones.

I was hard pressed for that because of the similarity of the title and your signia.

Maybe it adds to it's charm

haha, the charm. The virtuplex has me.

Yeah this is the only internet community I've been a part of and used the insignia years ago while writing the first draft. That's why I posted it here.

You are perfectly entitled to wax on about the psychological elements. Readers are allowed to experience this privately in their own way. You did a poetic potrayal.

all right, well, unless anyone else is currently reading this, I'm prepared to rip this down from the electronic shelves here. In a week's time.

Thanks again to my one confirmed reader. It tickled me to know that someone I don't know and who owes me nothing took a chance on it. Nothing like sharing.

Why must it be ripped down? I'm no avid reader due to the migraines it causes, but I enjoyed what I read.

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

Well, it doesn't have to be. Just considering re-tooling it into a different format eventually. Have you read a little bit of it?

Also sorry to hear about your migraines. I've had two in my life. Scary stuff.

I agree Nono, don't tear it down. It seems it can still have growth, it has potential.

As far as migraines are concerned, try Tumeric, large doses say 500-750 mg twice a day to replace OC analgesics, I swear by it, replaced decades of reliance on major pain relievers.

Thanks for the suggestion, but turmeric would kill me it turns out (STFU Turd and Magnus!), any other recommendations?

My blood is thicker than most peoples, so I am on a blood thinner and another thinner such as turmeric would literally kill me.

Then why don't you ask your doctor to get off that Rx. Which is manufactured, and try this natural root that also alleviates pain? Makes sense , and if it doesen't work, you can always go back. But most doctors don't believe in herbals, I forgot.

How would I go back if it doesn't work? Eternal recurrence?

Eternal recurrence or jerkey's manifesto thread about going back.

tingling arms and fingers before the migraine should warn you to exit the virtuplex. Escape escapism.

Rather!
Sometimes the choice is there, but the uncertainty of that all, gives rise to a certain narrowing, just like in my inverted pyramid suggests, where at the apex, movement foreword unsyappable, there is no choice.
If you don't jump, others will push you. Unless you resist that, but then the effects are cacukably reified, one becomes one with the apex. Then there is no movement, foreword, nor back and you are stuck.

(Which is as becoming a freeze.)
