To comprehend the future we must understand the present. To understand the present we must comprehend human nature and the past.

For the first time in cinematic history see all human civilizations emerge and evolve and battle as one in one strict chronological saga.

Presented in the "Language of Television", this series tracks the patterns throughout history that shape the present and promise a dystopian future if we dont overcome the weaknesses of our nature that our elite masters exploit with ever increasing gusto.

So here it is at last. I first thought of this in the summer of 2006, shortly after I did "TYWS" out of the clear blue. The opening video wall sequence for it I had done by the end of that summer, although it has now been remastered. You can see the draft original clip and some more about the genesis of all this here ("R2T"). As usual, it started as a neato idea and of course it spun out into a long concept by the time I had gotten that opener draft clip for the initial project idea put together. It was already poised to stretch beyond 6 hours in those days, which wasn't a problem in terms of being 'doable', except that computer tech back then trying to do such a thing was like one week render times. Then by the time I did have a PC that could take it on Google Video (with long durations) had shut down, Youtube only had 10 minute maximum duration with crap quality. Hardly any alternatives int he grand scheme of things, not to mention Google AI shutting videos down in Youtube.

Then my life had to take a turn away from all of this for many years. Then my life was obliterated and here I am again. By now I knew the project would go off into the stars in scope, as all this time for 11 years I never stopped studying for this project. I've been consciously wiring it along this journey of scouring the annals of cinematic history and archiving everything in my path for when the day would finally come.

And came it did, although I did actually try to avoid it because I knew what would happen once I installed Sony Vegas again... my brain would take the reigns of this thing from my mind. At first, after doing MEMEGEDDON on a whim for The Contest, I had 72 hours left on my Vegas trial version so I figured I'd do a big compilation piece with my old videos plus MEMGEDDON plus another new short I've wanted to do for like a decade. And I actually did pull that off, with lots of borrowed additions to construct a more complete timeline than my disparate existing pieces provide. And not too bad, but just not enough because you see I had used my opener for this here and the 5 hour piece I did in 72 hours didn't live up to it. I had only went back 100 years, where "start from the beginning" was always the design.

And so the spiral ran... I had worked my way from the future/present on back. The Patterns I was chasing kept running thick and kept pulling me further into the past. Now the "film" was somewhere near the 12 hours mark. Note that's with me slicing and smashing every little clip to be used down in most tedious fashion the best I could to keep it all short as possible. It was to be rendered off in several 1-2 hour pieces now. And then Hurricane Irma came, disrupting my scene after I hit this place like a 72 hour tornado as the thin black final path line was straight over my bizarro mad science compound. My Internet was down for a month along this stretch, which initially I let it lapse on purpose so i couldn't scour for more materials I didnt put any effort to get some money to pay it for a couple weeks, but then the Irma landed just right so that the account had to be redone and right in the middle my second Vegas trial ended. But I still had plenty of materials after 11 years of archiving and several new months of rigorous acquisitions, to review and thoughts to think. I had managed to cover the BC era in a mere 20 or so minutes and had intended to leave it about there...

Finally back up after a stretch I was ready to move forward, to "get it done and over with" lol, mostly keep it in terms of post industrial revolution, but by the time I got back up running again I had realized an entirely new way of presenting wars & conflicts that coupled with the power of my "Timeline TV Emulation" format I intended to go all out on WW2 as a new goal became to MURDER war. SO I figured I had a couple months to go, would surely be in the top 10 on the longest films in history list. But of course I had Spartacus kicking me in the back of the head for a while. I had only but a tiny clip mentioning him, where to not do a big spread on history's all time revolutionary would be tragic.

So then I set about doing a big detailed ordeal for his Slave Rebellion. With the battles it was too perfect. My method is to look at all available media and "exploded diagram" it all to then reconstruct it as one tight knit hard hitting format of boring documentary combined with hard hitting cinema (preferably). So in itching and scratching everything possible to do it right, it became 'impossible' to not do more about the Roman Empire as what's going on in America today is straight out of Rome. Then of course by the time I had went through and prepared all those materials for assembly I had realized that the Patterns of today, of the future, go all the way back to day one of pick your civilization. What's more is the Bronze Age, there's actually no better period to tell the future. It's so perfect I could almost end it with this Season 1: The Bronze Age.

I've really struggled to keep the story structure along the way following a strict chronological format with tedious detail to this point. The only exception is the opening "toob" clip I select for each episode which allows me to speak out of time. But the rest of the time I try to eliminate anything speaking forwards so that the vison of the story stays planted in the period at any given time. As I'm mostly limited to what's out there to work with believe you me this project is way more involved than just splicing clips in order. Dramatic edits to slices used is typical as I go. I've done a ton of new original work too, although mostly in the later periods. Much of Season one is "Citations" concent, although the beginning and finalie episodes I get back to form.

I know I rub a lot of people wrong with my politics around here, but this first season goes nowhere near anything resmbling partisan politics so I hope you'll all give it a chance. I can promise you on many levels nothing like this has even been done and I can say that as an expert as for 11 years I've been searching and scouring cinema from rare to masinstream to bizarre for anything and everything that could even come close or play a part. Odds are whatever you expect to find from me here, this is something else entirely.

I'm very satisfied with this season one. I've managed the work on it in about a month (August is when I got sucked into all this again). Have been working enrtirely out of the video editor projeect files, other than one text file of just basic timeline dates for key figures / places / events, and another for episode names. This kind of work is all in the brain, so I've been on a 'bizarre' sleep (lak of schedule'. It's just best to let the brain do much of this kind of work I realized back in the day. So for example I'll review and prep a bunch of materials, then take a 20 minute nap and get up and just scream through the editing work. Then do some stuff around, have new potential materials playing. Sit down do some diagram exploding, then try to edit until I start skin crawling so then plop down with materials playing and zone out half asleep for another 10-120 minutes, then get up and scream throgh more editing. The mind is critical in such endevors, but the brain is back there is doing much of the work. It might sound crazy, when you find stuff laid out rough draft better than had actually thought about it at the time, again and again and again, its so true. Therefore, neuroscience should be embraced. And as it happens the long term memories establish when we sleep. So even that 10 minute nap super charges your productivity when some 1000+ (not an exaggeration) documentries / movies / tv show episodes are all spooled up in such pursuits and you've been in zombie mode for months on end. I'm not complanging. I've been training for this most of my adult life.

So I hope you all enjoy my "Language of Televison" format. It was always designed for the people. The toob generations we're all ADD and such so that's why I came up with the format to help endure such a foray making it "natural". And its not all darkness. I try to include some choice satire in every episode; lots of twists and surprises. After Season 1 we'll also be getting into the realms of positive progressive thinkers, gurus and icons from across the ages. I wont be skewering them. Instead we'll be covering thier new ideas (too often ignored) that we might save our species with. Although I will be crucifiying the behavoir of groups people commiting darkness in their name (typically completey contrary to their ideals and wishes). But the point is its not all doom and gloom porn the idea of it all. Our triumphs and inventions both good and bad will be explored if not championed. I'm convinced that unless we see a dramatic sea change in cultural evolution, worldwide, we're truly going to wipe ourselves out and very possibly within my lifetime. So this project here, or at least one like it, harnesses the "Universal Language of Televison" I've always been convinced is our only hope. I'm going to try my best to do it in a way that appeals to all while also being effective. Note graphics and video are about the furthest things from anything I've ever done for a living, and I loathe trying to work with Adobe products so I'm more of an 'editor' than a 'content creator' while being a one man show constantly under the gun operating on a Zero Budget (negative budget actually).

As I complete it I intend to release the project in full open source as it belongs to Homo sapiens as far as I'm concerned, no doubt as to be able to even do it requires 'all of the worlds media' as this is the 'entire human saga' afterall.

Note that this decade I haven't been in any position to cultivate social media followings. The time I have spent I've done it in here with you guys getting myself back up to spec again. I love debating you all here it forces me to stay sharp. So it's up to others pretty much to help get this out there. Note I'm up against Google's autozap AI in general, which I'll be arguing the Fair Use case. But even any episodes I get to keep up in there I'm still the stuff of their ultimate nemesis so nobody's ever even gonna see my channel just by chance is to be expected given they have a whole assortment of hush methods the're now doing to people that buck them, their technocrat ideology and the system in general. The best hope is people upload this thing. While Youtube can set it up so people aren't likely to ever happen across something they dont like, when people post videos their own subscribers will still see it. They zapped my account back in 2010 is part of why I faded out to begin with.

Oh its fixed I had the url code instead of the embed code.

I just made thw ac# and the raw render of the first episode is 5.7gb, with that pesky 2gb limit. I have it converting now will take an hour and will try to edit it in if can get it processed in time.

But the streaming and full downloads are all set in archive.org!

Here we go! Congrats on debuting such an epic film series.
I personally know how much work goes into a project like this.

Hopefully the folk that don't like you will give this a chance lol. Looking forward to the discussion.

Yeah lol. Dont worry everyone, most of the stuff we hold each other in contention over is way way down the line in this project. The main theme for some time to come is how much alike we all are. We're all the same, in the ancient days and today. Then and now, us and them. We havent changed much at all just lots of new gadgets and ideas, many of which are as backwards as int he old days.

Yeah the prep methods I do, reviewing chopping endless documentaries and movies etc, its like painting a house you spend a week pape and tapering and then bang it out in a day and a half. Forever it was like going nowhere because I had to work my way backwards. But then I finally knew where it would officially start and started working from the opening clip (well after a couple weeks period remastering the video wall sequence and constructing the new intro piece for it). Right now I could bang out through the Roman period pretty quick, but this release process will be involved as I have to master each episode each night and 'deal with' the process. Plus I might want to breathe a bit to have time to think up quality additions besides just splicing and running. Argh i gotta work on the .com hopefully tonight too...

I'm 9 minutes in and it feels like ADDxE'___'ee=video.

Editing is top notch. The topics are intriguing ones. That said, will there be more structure as I watch or is it just 25 minutes of clips strung together?

I ask this with no asshattery intended. Just trying to get a feel here.

ETA: I forgot I can't say that acidic thing that alters your brain particles.

That primer a rapid fire crash course of whats to come. Its not how the whole thing plays out all crazy like. I wouldnt release it until I had the actual first episode to go with it for that reason.

I'm jammed up in the moderator review process at Live Leak right now. Youtube AI autozap wont even allow the Primer piece, for now. I'll be contesting with them too. If it isnt a streaming embed here nobody will click on it, so I havent done the Episode 1 release thread yet, but you can see E1 & E2 in the Archive.org links above. I have a PG13 version of PRIMAL rendered as the NC17 version there will surely be difficult for a lot of people to endure with that mondo footage; I actually went easy on the mondo materials believe it or not. E3 tonight sometime...

About to turn on the .com which will have it all laid out together...
