TERRORISTS want to kill YOU and YOUR CHILDREN!!!!
The mere writing of these words invokes more images in your minds than I could
possibly hope to achieve in my entire career as a video game developer.
Words are literally magic spells. We have to stop pretending otherwise. Words literally... CONJURE... images in our minds unless we have been trained
or learned otherwise.
This is why we are so easy to control. Because a wise wordsmith knows how to get you to reject the truth that you feel in favor of a truth that you
"see", despite Autostereograms
being perfect examples of how something "real" can be created
illusory via repeating patterns
Why do you think so much money and energy is put into figuring out which are the best books, movies, and games which will stimulate your mind's eye?
Which ones will resonate the most with you and thus will be the ones you question the least?
Why do I know this? Because I've *done* it within my career
. You might
discount the following specific story as being small fry but that's actually kind of the point. This happened on accident.... to be funny
and turned out to reveal a power I only imagined
was possible. Much less the avenues I was actually encouraged to pursue for significant $$$
rewards... but declined.
I wrote a story. It was truly a fictional story, but it was a story written by observing my audience, observing what they cared about, and
ultimately... using their interests against them. This was a story of why the video game Duke Nukem Forever had been delayed... "forever".
The Chair Story
Naturally the game that came out was awful... but that's not what I'm here for. What I'm here for is to show the reaction of people to a story which
1) had been released years earlier verifying it as a false story and 2) how much effort it took people to convince others it was fake.
These are just two articles that I dug up on a quick search, not to count the numerous forum discussions around the same time as well as radio,
newspaper, and book interview requests due to it. When the story was *re-published*... I went from 5-30 hits a day to 50,000+ per day for a week.
The point is to elucidate how without *any* additional provocation from me... and in fact with some hints left behind to suggest "you've been had"...
how unintentionally easy it was to suspend disbelief and get an audience to buy into what I had to say.
There isn't much more to say... if someone is motivated to convince you of something... and have the channels and money to push it... it will get
through and there is nothing you can do about it. Had there been an actual coordinated effort between 3D Realms, Epic Games, and myself... we could
have turned that story into something mythical that all of you would have no choice but to believe because "we controlled the evidence".
But we didn't, because all I and those companies are really here to do is make something entertaining. But there are people here who have as their
entire purpose to trick you and take from you and have the same resources (and more!) as I did... but without the consciousness.
This is an old old ooooooooooooooold game design
Namaste.... and good luck!
