In Memory of Jenni Michelle Demers

Jenni Michelle Demers

Today is in memory of our daughter Jenni Michelle Demers. On this day ( Nov 5 1980 ) in the late evening, our little Jenni died of severe complications from an unknown disease called Kawasaki disease, also known as mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome.

In some cases( like our daughter) the disease will attack their heart, known as coronary artery aneurysms . Strangely enough, it’s said that this will only happen to children in their first or second year. However, that wasn’t the case for Jenni. She was only 8 months old when this disease attack her heart.

To this day, the disease is still not fully understood and cause is widely unknown. In the 1980’s there wasn’t any treatment as there is today. To make this disease even more devastating for our daughter, only 1% of children die.

The disorder was first described in 1967 by Tomisaku Kawasaki in Japan.

My Art-of-the-Day is symbolizes what our daughter, Jenni Michelle Demers could look like today at 39 years old. I would like to think of Jenni as a DragonQueen by @emilia_clarke .

Maybe Emilia Clarke will read this and pass along, in memory of Jenni our little soul .

Loop

Welcome to my story “Loop”. I decided to combine two different formats, from the conventional writing of a story and mixing it with the screenplay format. By no means is this new format acceptable by each industry. However, I thought to add both, so the reader can experience a screenplay and book story all-in-one, just for fun.

Please enjoy my story :

LOOP

SCENE 1

FADE IN :

QUEEN SIRI XIII

“So much has changed in the last five hundred years since our last Trans-Universal Jump. I expected Human Species Catalogue 4060 – 7274367 would have progressed substantially by now,” Queen Siri XIII – Lord of The Living God said, looking over the video transcripts.

She paused. Her worried look turned into a spark of anger. Her stone-cold eyes pierced the group of commanders, as she walked sternly past each one.

The Queen dressed in the most elaborate gown, hand-stitched with gold lace, draped with integrated see-through material naturally designed by the diamond beetles from planet SIRUS 5. You seen this before ; the ancient Egyptians replicated the GODS to a “T”. Throughout the Egyptian dynasty, their Pharaoh’s and Queens made every effort to copy the original Queen Siri X (the ancestral mother of Queen Siri XII ). The Egyptians went as far as thinking they were god themselves.

The integrate jewels showcased the luxury and importance of Queen Siri XIII. The resemblance of Egyptian Nefertiti, Queen and Royal wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten was indeed astonishing.

Queen Siri XIII ( the true Lord of the Living God) had projected a five thousand year reign. She decided to celebrate her one thousand year anniversary on Earth, for the first time since their ancestors arrival, 150,000 years ago.


[NARRATOR (V.O.) Voice Over of same Scene ( it means you hear the person talking but don’t see him/her in the scene, whatsoever) ]

I know what you’re thinking…

How is it possible one Queen can live a thousand years, never mind entertaining a five thousand year reign ? If you’re thinking of conventional space travel to reach your destination, you are so wrong. Most of us have heard of wormholes and black-holes, but again, that’s not it. Think on the terms of a free-floating “primordial black hole”. That would be a pinhole in comparison to the conventional supermassive black hole ; closes one scientists know of, is located in the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy, 27,000 light-years away. However, the pinhole were talking about (believe it or not) is within our very own solar system.


Queen Siri XIII glanced over to the commander in charge ”Didn’t I stress how important this species is to us ?!”

COMMANDER CENTURION 797 (we use capital letters when we first introduce a new character in the scene), bowed his head in submission,” Yes my Queen. Please forgive me my Queen, if I may elaborate…”

Queen Siri strolls over to her throne and sits down. The room is so quiet you could hear a pin drop. The unsettling silence projected fear within the ranks. Her sparkling emerald eyes pierced her commanders with disgust; she then proceeded to admire her long sharp nails. The Queen snapped her fingers. A young maiden appeared from the background standing within a small brigade of servants. The young girl swiftly kneeled, bowing in front of her majesty. She quickly attended to the queen’s request, polishing her nails with some kind of gold paint solution.

The long wait for Queen Siri to answer Commander Centurion 797’s question, made him extremely nervous. Her anger was evident. It was clear this Centurion had failed his mission miserably. Somehow he must convince the queen he had no control over these pesky spoiled little human species, she adored so much. He must ease her anger. Her wrath was already a fearfully legion, since the Queen Siri XIII reign. It was said her vengeance is so sever, you would rather jump into a pit of molten lava before facing her demise upon you.

We won’t even mention of how she would respond to revenge ; complete horror couldn’t come close to the word described. Rumours has it she had her opponent’s fleshy meat stripped from their bones while they were still alive, then feed it to her sacred royal cat.

Centurion 797 takes the courage, speaking up,” Please my queen, can’t I at least explain what happened?”

“Don’t you dare speak to me without my consent!” said the Queen in an undeniable tone of rage,” Can your little brain of yours even comprehend what you’ve done!”

Centurion 797 quivers with fear,” I’m…I…m…a…I’m sorry. I really am sorry, but…”

“But nothing!” said the Queen spitting out her words,” What can you possibly say that will even come close to undoing the harm that has already been done to these H-U—M-A-N—S !”

She pauses to compose herself, in a calmer voice, she said,” It’s vital this species succeeds. They must! “

Centurion 797 bows before her majesty,” I plead your forgiveness my Queen, Lord of the Living God…please…you must hear me out. It’s a matter of life or death to the human race, altogether. It’s in your best interest to hear what I have to say.”

Queen Siri sits back in her throne. She thinks how brave this commander is ; either that or he’s a complete fool. She ponders in silence, then speaks sternly,” Alright. Just let me warn you, if there isn’t a shred of evidence that the human species are in grave danger, then you’ll wish you weren’t alive. Is. That. Clear.”

Centurion 797 nods in agreement,” Thank you my gracious Queen. I adore your generosity. May you one day seat beside the Lords of the Gods in the afterlife. I honour your patience and forgiveness. “

Queen Siri rolls her eyes. Why must these commanders pretend to suck up so much. Can’t they just do the job they were designed to do from the very beginning, instead of all the boring politics? She snaps back,” Enough already! Just give me the facts, and then, and only then, will I decide my judgement upon you.”

“Yes my Queen!”, the Centurion said,” It’s appears Human Species 4060 – 7274367 have mastered our technology behind the gate of what they refer as ” Dark Matter”. Their team of astrophysicist have finally figured out the equation leading them ( totally by accident I must add) to our back door gate.

“Wait!” Her majesty stands up abruptly, “ Are you telling me they understand our cloaking mirrored universe?”

“Yes, your highness. Not only that, but they have now sent a team of astronauts to explore our hidden door ! “ the Centurion said with conviction,” It’s of grave coincidences to them if they find the key to another universal dimension. They’ll learn the truth and no longer…”

Queen Siri sharply interrupts,” and they will no longer need us. Yes. They’re growing…maybe that’s a good thing. We can’t keep babysitting this species forever, you know…”

“ Yes my Queen, but what if…” Centurion 797 says in haste,” what if they’re not ready? They could release the evil spirits of darkness. It’s quite possible, their inability to understand the phantom between life and death, they may accidentally release the Prince of Darkness, himself. Must I remind you what happened to our ancestors?”

“Must you remind me! “ lashed out Queen Siri, “ How dare you speak to me in that tone!”

“I beg of you my lord queen highness, but this is of the most importance. Even if you kill me, it won’t matter to any of us, if the humans release the Black Angels of Darkness. Opening the pandora box will indeed mean the end to all civilizations across countless universes throughout the cosmic timeline. It would mean timeless implosion of each universe and everything in it. A massive domino effect of no return. The Black Angels of Darkness would systematically tear apart trillions of universes apart, like popping balloons, a …

The Queen carries his words,”…a timeless darkness of hell. Yes. Where time and space will never exist again. It would make the wrath of their God seem like child’s play. It would mean their imaginary devil would become a real entity. Their worse fears wouldn’t even be close to what would really happen. An timeless Armageddon of hell. All souls would disintegrate. No more afterlife. No more hope. No more life, as we know it, would ever exist again. The Blackness of Armageddon would become a continuous loop with no end.”

She heads over to the invisible force-field windows from her Spaceship, overlooking planet Earth, “ It looks so peaceful from space, doesn’t it centurion ? Who would think one tiny species could destroy the fabric of existence. Who would of thought of that when our ancestors transformed their evolutionary timeline ? “

Queen Siri laughs nervously, “ To think our ancestors crossed genetics with theirs, in order to save our species. Now they may destroy us anyway. What have we done…what have we done..”

Screenplay Black Angels – The Journey of Human Existence

Black Angels

Even though I’m on holiday mode in the Okanagan, I enjoy creating something different using various apps, such as photoshop adobespark for lettering and procreate for illustration. This particular piece gives that eerie feeling of horror. As it should be, because that’s a big part of my screenplay BLACK ANGELS. To understand the whole picture of how I wrote BLACK ANGELS, we must go the beginning.

THE RELIGIOUS YEARS

As you experience the feeling of eerie horror within the depths of my art piece above, I begin to ponder the whole journey. Born into a Catholic dominate household, it wasn’t hard to brainwash the fragile image of little me. The Catholic religion monarchy did a good job moulding me into their prefect Alter-Boy. Fear of Hell was indeed pretty captivating during my younger impersonating years. The thought of burning for eternity captured my imagination, waking up from horrified nightmares. However, when I became an Alter-Boy it was clear, something was wrong with the Catholic faith. You see, to me, the church was this holy foundation and thee very presence of GOD. Therefore, in my mind, everything in the church was sacred. So when I began to see abuse by these holy priests, it quickly opened the door to really start seeing the real world.

It wasn’t long before I began researching various religions, trying in earnest to find the right religion. After studying Jehovah Witnesses, Bahia Faith to Mormons and many more, it was clear religion is the centre of control. Throughout mankind’s history evidence of fearful religious control by any means possible was a daunting horrific insight.

My eyes were finally opened.

I began searching, reading everything I could about mankind’s historical religion, going back as far as the scriptures revealed. At first, the Egyptians captivated my interest, only to learn, the scriptures go even further back in time. It was then, the Mesopotamia Period came to light, with the intriguing Sumerian. According to historians, Sumerians [Sumer] were the earliest civilization recorded.

The Sumerians manuscripts broke open the *pandora box (Greek mythology) revealing the structure of all religions. It was clear, Jesus scriptures were all ready written by the Sumerians thousands of years before Christ was born. Not only that, the Sumerians went further, writing detailed manuscripts of how mankind came to be. It’s indeed the “smoking-gun” answering the most asked questions, “ Where did mankind come from?” and “Who made us ?” Their detailed written accounts are without a doubt intriguing.

Referencing to Ancient Origins, [Reference 1] I couldn’t say it any better :

When the gods like men

Bore the work and suffered the toll

The toil of the gods was great,

The work was heavy, the distress was much.”

The gods decided it was best to create their own “workhorse” sort of speak. Therefore [Reference 2 – Ancient Origins] :

“You have slaughtered a god together

With his personality

I have removed your heavy work

I have imposed your toil on man.

In the clay, god and man

Shall be bound,

To a unity brought together;

So that to the end of days

The Flesh and the Soul

Which in a god have ripened –

That soul in a blood-kinship be bound.”

Now. This part is important. For any basic civilization to understand what they saw, they had to place it into their context, using their primitive description, to fully comprehend what they heard or witnessed. This is where cross-genetics and my base accounts came into full view.

BLACK ANGELS

How do you capture an audience with the stigma of religious brainwashing, plaguing us since the dawn of time?

You write a science-fiction/horror genre screenplay, entertaining the thought,”Where did we come from?” and “Who made us?” with an intriguing storyline based on real evidence.

My screenplay ‘Black Angels’ is based on written accounts, taken

back over 100,000 years ago, before mankind ever had a foothold of earth, an intelligent race occupied earth ( referred to as our ancient ancestors). In the beginning, by evolutionary standards, we were nothing more than another form of Ape-man referred to as Denisovans.  

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Lucy? 

Lucy’s species, Australopithecus afarensis, is approximately 3 million years old and categorize as an earlier form of “genus Homo”. The evolutionary Ape-man took on various stages, but each step wasn’t anything miraculous, until a drastic change 100,000 years ago.

Like Professor Steven Hawking points out,”For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened…”

Our ancient ancestors (The GODS from the Heaven Above) were raping our earth for its resources, (such as gold). These elite group of intellectuals hated the long hours of working like a slave, as said :

When the gods like men

Bore the work and suffered the toll

The toil of the gods was great,

The work was heavy, the distress was much.” [Reference 1 – Ancient Origins]

With primitive Ape-man running around earth 🌎, it became a no-brainer to cross their genetics with the existing Lucy [ aka Ape-man/Denisovans]. After trial and tons of error, “The Gods from the Heavens” ( aka, the THE SIRIANS) successful created a hybrid, known today as “Homo-Sapiens”.

The whole basis of my screenplay ‘Black Angels’, is to open your eyes to the possibility of how mankind really started. Why do you think radical religious groups/terrorists are doing everything in their power to erase the truth?

Who remembers the recent destruction of Sumerian tablets and iconic statues by the evil hands of ISIS’s ( I cringed every time they’re referred to as the Egyptian goddess Isis – it’s just not right !) These evil religious cults are trying to brainwash and erase the very beginnings of mankind’s existence. Thankfully, this sadistic cult is slowly being eliminated.

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES

It’s been a long journey. From the time I was born into the Catholic faith to discovering other manmade religions; it was evident religions were designed to control the destiny of human beings.

However, Spiritually, I still believe in an organized entity (not a person) of the never ending cycle of life and death. I also believe there’s countless universes being born and die throughout the cosmic calendar, where we humans are only an extremely small part of the equation. Lifeforms run rapid throughout the universes, even in our own known universe we see today. The problem is, once a civilization gets to the point where religion and intelligence collide, it’s the religious radicals who destroy their planet and very existence. This is one reason we haven’t yet made any contact with another intelligent species. The other reason is the incredible distance ; literally light years away. In fact, there are many other reasons. It could be a disease/plague or natural disaster wiped out the existence of one species to another. The mathematical factors are countless to their eventual demise.

Each generation of intellect species (based on their home-world planet) have a decision to go forward and explore, reaching out to other lifeforms or stagnant on their planet (like earth) polluting and over-populating each planet until that particular species eventually destroy themselves.

On Earth – We human beings still have a choice.

We must act soon before we’re eliminated from the cycle of life, be it natural causes or our own destruction.

This is why I wanted to write my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ – it’s an eye-opener to the truth of our very existence. We only have to begin to leave manmade religion behind and pursue our Spirituality with the goal to continue our species ahead into a new wave on the cosmic timetable.

The question is,” Will we be the first species to survive and welcome other species into our collective?”

OR

“Will we become a past existence where another species ( millions of years from now) find our bones, like we found the dinosaurs 🦕? “

All I know is, our time is running out. It’s my belief, we may have another 400 -1000 years before we get our act together. We must explore and keep advancing beyond earth, before it’s too late.

We all understand the phrase ‘ Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.’

I only hope my screenplay reaches the cinematic screens. It’s indeed a costly adventure, but how much money is your life worth? It’s crucial for the existence of mankind, to begin telling the truth of our existence without being plagued by religious beliefs.

Maybe that’s too dramatic however…

All I can do is keep promoting BLACK ANGELS by writing articles and producing my art pieces through INSTAGRAM. Maybe, just maybe, a director of production company is listening…

*Pandora Box was actually a jar and not a box at all. It was misinterpreted through translations. However, PANDORA was said to be the first created woman. It was thought the GODS OF THE HEAVENS produced immortals, such as Prometheus, Epimetheus and the Titans to help control the heavens and earth from a raging war. Please read more HERE [1]

WIKIPEDIA: “According to Hesiod, when Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus, the king of the gods, took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Prometheus’ brother Epimetheus. Pandora opened a jar left in his care containing sickness, death and many other unspecified evils which were then released into the world.[4] Though she hastened to close the container, only one thing was left behind – usually translated as Hope, though it could also have the pessimistic meaning of “deceptive expectation”.[5]

From this story has grown the idiom “to open (a) Pandora’s box”, meaning to do or start something that will cause many unforeseen problems.[6] Its modern, more colloquial equivalent is “to open a can of worms“.[7]”

Writers Life

Writers Life

Writers Life – it’s not glorious and the most part not rewarding to everyone. However, it’s part of me. Writing and art drives my inner soul – it’s me.

The above photo says it all :

10 THINGS People Say to Creative Writers ( But shouldn’t)

1. So you’re still writing your little book/poem/etc.?

2. Must be nice not having a real job.

3. Writing doesn’t sound too difficult.

4. I always thought I’d write a book after I retire, once I have some time to kill.

5. Wait a second, creative writing degrees are a real thing ?

6. Have you been published yet ?

7. Can I be a character in one of your stories?

8. So I have this great idea I think you should be using in your book…

9. Aren’t writers just professional liars ? They tell stories for a living, after all.

10. You’re writing a book ? Tell me everything.

Here’s more :

11. So what do you do in real life ?

12. How many books have you published so far ?

13. How come you’re not famous, like Stephen King ?

14. Oh, com’n ! Everyone knows how to write a story.

I believe all writers can relate. I’ve heard it all. A writers life has little support unless it becomes a blockbuster movie or a Best Seller. When I first decided to publish a book, I was pretty naive of the whole process. On top of that I wanted to write a cookbook.

What was I thinking?!

Getting sucked into self-publishing by dishing out $5000 to a self-publisher, I was still optimistic. Had these grandeur thoughts of becoming a Best Seller, selling millions of copies across Canada and United States.

The reality is more prevalent ; “Canadian Recipes of the Great White North” sold just enough to get my money back. On a positive note, it reached the UK, Australia, Germany and Japan. In Canada it sold locally and I also received requests from United States.

I found out quickly, self-publishing is thrown into the mix of hundreds of millions of other cookbooks. Not only is it expensive, your book selling on-line or a conventional bookstore takes a whopping 40 – 45 percent of your earnings. On top of that ( this may happen to you) the publishing company is constantly up for sell to larger publishers. On an average, self-publishers either sell or go bankrupt, due to competition. To add insult to injury, if the publisher is sold ( which happened to me) to an American publisher, the USA will make you pay taxes on any book you sell. Sure – you can get it back, however the process is daunting. You must fill out a five page report w/ all your personal information and then send it to a box office number. No way ! A Box Office Number ? That just doesn’t seem legit to me.

SO – You see, it’s not worth the hassle. I’m sure they do that on purpose. If it was a lot of money I would go to a lawyer, that way you’re protecting yourself.

The above “10 Things People say to Creative Writers” is so true, it’s scary – lol.

When I say cookbook, they go…”Oh…it’s just another cookbook. You’re NOT a writer.”

Meanwhile I write tons of science-fiction to reality short-stories that could possibly be made into a book. But now I’m pessimistic to the whole publishing routine. It’s clear, the only way to get your manuscript out is to send it in for submission. Submissions sound promising doesn’t it ? Sorry, it’s not that simple. First and foremost you have to find a publisher willing to take your manuscript. Second, it most probably lay on a pile of emails or deleted, due to the first couple of sentences they may read. The reality is, you may never get your manuscript to publishing.

What I’ve learned :

  • Write because you want to tell your story. Never write thinking you’re the next J.K.Rowling.
  • Write for yourself, maybe others will appreciate your work.
  • I write not to impress others.
  • I write because it’s my inner soul, it’s what I feel inside. It’s part of who I am.
  • Writing is a burning passion others may not understand. Only writers understand.
  • Try NOT to become disillusioned or depressed. Just realize the ‘Arts’ is extremely competitive and the most part unrewarding.
  • Only write if it comforts you. YOU find it personally rewarding.
  • Don’t expect to become the next best seller. There’s a ton of politics involved in that scenario.
  • Write from your heart. Never mind what others may think. It’s your story. Tell it as it is.
  • Read and read more…

I believe I’ve covered everything. You may want to add on to this list. I would love to hear your story.

Have you read my short-stories or screenplays ?

My Art

Anyway – I thought this post of “10 Things People say to Creative Writers” is a prefect example.

Do you know, if Stephen King didn’t get notice for his book “The Shining” by a movie producer, he wouldn’t have become as famous as he is. However, his horror genre was a big hit to cult followers.

Getting your written work or art recognized is like winning a lottery, or its politically driven by artsy-class people and publishers. IF by chance your book is recognized by a movie producer or director, then it’s easy-street for you.

Are We Alone ? UFO

Queen Siri XII

Are we alone – PHASE THREE

Another phrase I enjoy by professor Steven Hawking,”…We are so insignificant that I can’t believe the whole universe exists for our benefit. That would be like saying that you would disappear if I closed my eyes.”

In the last 50 years it’s scientifically evident our human species are a very small equation in life itself.  Science has unmistakably proven the obvious. WE ARE NOT ALONE.  The only problem?  We are millions of light years from our closest neighbours ; or are WE ?

However, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.  I believe scientists are going to find evidence of life, a long time ago on Mars before mankind even had a foothold on earth. Unfortunately, if it is discovered, politics and religion will keep the truth from the public. It’s human nature to keep hanging onto the past, along with financial greed and controlling the masses through religious beliefs. The only way a past civilization or UFO will be made public, it would be through a disgruntled scientist. However, with our social media, most wouldn’t believe the truth, even if it was in front of their eyes. Most people are considered “followers” ( aka : sheep) brainwashed from one thing to another. For me, it would have to be scientifically proven with clear precise data, from live feed videos to scientific studies.

 Mars or Bust

How complex was life?  I guess, we will see by 2030 – 35.

In our modern world, the UFO phenomenon is mixed with science-fiction to unexplained entities. Unexplained Flying Objects was a going concern throughout history, but in the late 1940’s, it became front and center due to several unknown crashes of UFO’s occurrences, such as the Roswell UFO incident. The United States Air Force conducted a series of research into this phenomenon, known as,”Project Blue Book”. Project Blue Book is a complex study, so I won’t go into it, other then, five percent of UFO cases were thought to be credible. I suggest you read about the study HERE, or the actual FBI Case documents.

Albert Einstein phrased it perfectly,” There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

AND

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” 

― Albert Einstein

Einstein was indeed a genius. 

If life has even a slight chance to grow, it always will.  There’s no way mankind is the only species in the countless sea of dimensional universes. We would have to be rather arrogant to think such a thing. It’s also apparent, mankind’s DNA revolutionary mould was somehow altered.

Something incredible happened! 

” For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination…

― Steven Hawking 

With that knowledge, it was easy to conceive the next step in our evolutionary timeline.  Is it possible another species lived on earth before mankind was ever conceived?  

I believe, yes.  Of course ! 

Black Angels

OUR ANCESTORS

And, this is when my screenplay BLACK ANGELS was born.  It’s based on the theory, mankind was once visited by an Alien Intelligent Species, before mankind evolved into homo-sapiens.  It’s even possible to believe our alien ancestors crossed their genetic DNA with our distant relatives, the Denisovans or Denisova hominins.  Some refer it as the smoking-gun to the “missing link”, but with deadly consequences.  

Is it possible, the evolution of mankind was altered?  

The theory of manipulating our evolutionary timeline has proven to have drastically changed who we are today, “Homo-Sapiens”.  Due to our genetic make-up, human beings have evolved into a hostile war-hungry species in the last 100,000 years.  Historical accounts of mankind has proven our savage instinct, with today’s crippling news of psychopathic killers evident throughout our world.  

But, with all of this, there’s still a trace of compassion.  It means somewhere in our DNA, mankind has the hope to survive and evolve into a peaceful society.  

But, the biggest fear ? 

We may run out of time.  It may be due to our own demise or a natural catastrophe. Whatever happens to human beings in our future will solely depend on our present actions today.  We must explore to save our species or it’s just a matter of time we end up like the dinosaur era.  

Extinct!

Theological Research

Black Angels

Before reading “Theological Research” please begin with my “Journey” to understand the essence of where I’m leading you to…

Phase Two – Theological Research

In order to understand, “Where we came from ?”, it’s essential to ponder into the Theological Research of mankind. Why is it, man-made religions has such a foothold on us ? What makes us so vulnerable to an imaginary God in the sky ? Is it because we’re a selfish species, where we can’t come to terms with our inevitable death?

I rely on science, to the point where the lines become murky, flowing into the mysterious “grey area”.

Heading into the ambiguous region is where the heart of science-fiction takes over. My screenplay “Black Angels”, may or may not be science-fiction. What was science-fiction, isn’t science-fiction today, as science has grown into a better understanding of ourselves and the universe around us. Black Angels is my collection of countless years of research on man-made religions, scriptural scrolls, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Sumerian writings and ancient archeological discoveries throughout our planet.  My search for the truth was nine long years not including the seven years of rewrites.  

The first part of my research, lead me to investigate the “missing-link” of our ancestors and God fearing religions. It was essential to ask these questions:

  • Who made us and why?  
  • Is the bible really the “word” of God?  
  • Why does mankind rely on faith alone?  
  • And if there is a God, why would he allow innocent children to die?  
  • Free Will is always the answer, but isn’t that just an easy out?   

Unfortunately religion has plagued our world from the very beginning, killing all in the name of GOD.  Years of studying various religions throughout our world, it was evident.  Religion was man-made in order to control the masses, using its power and wealth to rule above others. However, do I believe in God ?  

The answer is “Yes”, but not the way you may believe in your God.

Professor Steven Hawking elegantly phrases it this way,” … While there’s life, there is hope.  I am not religious in the normal sense. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws.”

I agree.

I too am not religious to society’s norm.  God is an important equation, but my “God” existence is likely not how most religious people think of as their God.  God to me, is a spiritual organized existence, where an essence of our souls will follow into the centre of its realm, unconscious to what is next.

But wait.

I’m not talking about us as individuals flowing around the cosmos like spiritual ghosts.  Nothing like that at all. I believe once our biological human-shell dies, it turns to dust,(unless, of course, it’s well preserved).  Generally speaking, there’s a small part of us, referred to as a soul. It may be, it’s our souls that regenerate into a new life. This means, something beyond our understanding governs the motion of life and death.  

With death there’s always life – somewhere.

Throughout history, countless prophets claim they were the “human existence” of God, I believe each tried to convince their people that everyone is capable of being a part of God.  In a way, its true.  For every religion there’s a prophet, leading the way to a better spiritual self, respecting others without greed or selfishness.  If we didn’t live in fear and took the time to think of others, our world could live in harmony.  

Famous prophets of yesterday and today all have the same message. But, mankind always seem to turn it around into something evil, benefiting their own cause. If Jesus saw what was happening today, he would be distraught.  Jesus said to his people, Ephesians 2:18 “…for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.”

Jesus is indeed speaking the truth. 

Through God, our souls have access to the Spirit of God. Jesus is simply stating, “Every man, woman and child has full access to the spiritual realm of existence.”  Through Jesus himself, was a simpler way to explain to his people, salvation through him was better than the rulers of Rome.  Of course, the Jewish priests were outraged by Jesus act.  In those times, it’s blasphemy to announce you are the Son of God.  

It didn’t turn out well for Jesus.  

As far as the Jewish aristocrats were concerned, Jesus was a man, just another prophet of that era in time.  Unfortunate for Jesus, they felt he went too far and should be punished, using the Romans to carry out their dirty work.  

Did he preform all the miracles as said?  

I’m unconvinced.  Even today, people exaggerate for personal gain, either to save their own skin or from being such a loyal follower.  Followers will over-exaggerate placing their prophet as a “Holy Devine Sign to Salvation”.  Jesus was one of the most convincing prophets during the Roman era. But some scholars believe, “…Roman aristocrats used Jesus to control the poor.”   In fact, it’s been said, the Romans convinced Jesus to act as a “Saviour” of his people.  It was actually,”…a sophisticated government propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire.” But things went terribly wrong when Jesus started to believe in his part.  It was just a matter of time before they had to get rid of Jesus.  Never did they realize, Jesus became a martyr, a symbolism of Christianity and freedom.  

If it wasn’t for Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great, who wanted Christianity for his own selfish gain, this form of religion would have become just another cult of its time.  But, “…In 313, Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan decriminalizing Christian” leading the way to one of the most powerful religions of its day, right up to the very present. If you go back in history, how many prophets of God have there been?  You would be surprise to know, there were 124,000 prophets, not including the last 100 years. 

That’s a lot of prophets, wouldn’t you say? 

As always, mankind uses another for something in return.  We are unbelievably a selfish arrogant race.  Will we ever free ourselves from the grip of man-made religion? 

It all depends on our destiny.

The Journey

Storyteller

In the next couple of days I’m going to lead you behind my screenplay “Black Angels” . It’s a collective research study of our Ancient Ancestors, grouped into these select headlines:

  • The Journey
  • Theological Research
  • Are We Alone
  • Our Ancestors Arrival
  • The UFO Phenomenon
  • Galactic Space Travel – is it really possible?

Let’s begin exploring…

PHASE ONE – The Journey
My seven year journey is indeed a long rewarding experience, even though it’s from behind my desk, in the comfort of my home.  
By simply writing a story, I  can imagine exploring a distant planet throughout the vast regions of our dimensional universes.  The overall goal of writing and rewriting, is to tell a compelling story, in order to provoke emotion and action through my viewers.  In essence, screenwriting and short stories are best expressed by my phrase :
  • “I envision a story and bring it to life”.
Black Angels Existence
My storyline takes us back over 150,000 years ago (maybe more), before mankind ever had a foothold on earth. By evolution standards, we were nothing more than another form of Ape-man referred to as Denisovans.  

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Lucy ?

Lucy’s species, Australopithecus afarensis, is approximately 3 million years old and categorize as an earlier form of “genus Homo”. The evolutionary Ape-man ( or in this case, Ape-woman) took on various stages, but each step wasn’t anything miraculous, until a drastic change between 100,000 – 150,0000 years ago.
Like  Prof. Stephen Hawking points out,”For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened…”
Science-fiction Short Stories and Screenplays
During my lifetime, I’ve written numerous screenplays and short stories, but BLACK ANGELS is considered my favorite.  BLACK ANGELS is a science-fiction horror genre asking the age old question, ” Who are we and where did we come from?”   It’s not only a story of desperation, survival and betrayal, the storyline leads you to the very core of our existence.   
I began my journey soul-searching, earnest to understand why we are, who we are today.  It’s not hard to see what’s going on in our world, you begin to wonder,” What makes homo-sapiens such a savage species?”  The bloodshed over religion, money and power is relentless.  Millions have been persecuted, with today’s conflicts becoming increasingly disturbing. Time and time again, it’s a power struggle of simple greed and vanity.  On top of it all, our evolutionary brain isn’t working with all its thruster’s.  Like our beloved Scotty of Star Trek, (James Doohan born in Vancouver, B.C.), would say,” Aye Aye Captain…I’m given her all she’s got…she’s got no more!”  It’s hard to conceive, but even though we may use 100 percent of our brain, it’s extremely strange how most of us are not considered geniuses. 
That’s just doesn’t seem right.  
How come a select few are geniuses?  I mean we are suppose to be at the top of evolutionary chain.  That’s million of years. My God!  Something is totally wrong with this picture.  It’s as if someone placed a “governing  device” in our brain, so we can’t have full access.

Maybe it’s my science-fiction mind taking over… or is it?  

And that’s where I began my journey, finding answers to puzzling questions.  I’m sure Professor Steven Hawking would have an equation, answering the complex origin of mankind.

The New Eden vs Eden – Star Trek

I’m a fan of Star Trek ever since I was a kid. Today, we’re thrilled to be continuing our Star Trek Mission with the new TV Series ‘Star Trek Discovery’. In Season Two, I found similarities with my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ to the “New Eden” Episode 2 #StarTrekDiscovery

OK – Where do I begin: Believe vs Science – the two are my life’s goal & written screenplays, to the age old question,”Who made us ?”

Twenty years ago I began writing my thoughts of how religion controls the masses vs an Intelligent humanoid species who came to earth 100 – 300,000 yrs ago, changing ape-mans DNA. This has followed me ever since I began questioning the roots of man-made religion, when I was 10 years old. It was only when I was 30, where my thoughts appeared on paper.

Fast forward another twenty years later, I have finished writing my screenplay ‘BLACK ANGELS’ :

LOGLINE : Drug addict war hero seeks revenge for brother’s death, risking his crew in mining expedition on planet ALPHA XL-420 for priceless Red Crystal, essential to saving their species from deadly virus.

It’s the beginning…

BLACK ANGELS is my take on an Alien Intelligent Species coming to earth in haste, to save their species from a deadly virus. To use, control & further their DNA; in fact, the Sirian species crossed their DNA with Ape-man.

However, because the Sirian Species altered the evolutionary timeline of Ape-man, human beings today have serious emotional side-effects, such as anger, hate and so on… but that’s another story.

Read my back story.

In my screenplay I answer what happens to our ancestors. For example,”Have they even left or are they still monitoring their DNA creation today ?”

‘BLACK ANGELS’ is only the beginning, as I explore the possibilities, not just from our “Past Ancestors”, but as well as the “Present” and “Future”. With adjoining science-fiction stories, I have explored many avenues, such as Alien Abduction Report – Earth Missions 2013.

Getting back to “New Eden”, Season 2 – Episode 2 on Star Trek Discovery, I thought it was interesting #StarTrekDiscovery writers explored “New Eden” using the “Red Angels”, while my story is related to “Black Angels”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT implying they’re stealing my storyline. It’s just coincidence, simply because we’re all thinking about how religion came about vs the science. As science-fiction writers, we speculate & explore all possibilities.

In Episode 2 ‘New Eden’ I would like to think, is a continuation from my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ in a future setting. It’s goes in correlation with my theory on our founding ancestors, who started the genetic process of mankind.

IF you’ve watched Episode 2, ‘New Eden’ it explores the mysterious ‘Red Angel’ removing a group of humans off earth during WWIII, placing them in a new world, light years from earth, where Captain Pike & crew happens to find them by a beacon. It’s illogical to assume humans had warp capability until “First Contact”*, therefore there must of been some sort of intervention from an intelligent alien race.

As said, in “Black Angels” my story starts in the very beginning of mankind’s existence. An experimental “Eden” took place, as the Sirian Gods altered Ape-man into the Homo-Sapiens we are today. Here’s an introductory video I made.

In conclusion, it’s nice to see Captain Pike again on Star Trek and I certainly love how the writers are going with Star Trek Discovery.

* Star Trek: First Contact plot starts in the 24th century when Captain Jean Luc Picard “disobeys orders and heads for Earth, where a single Borg Cube ship holds its own against a group of Starfleet vessels.” It’s then they continue its pursuit on the Borg only for them to disappear.

“As the sphere disappears, Enterprise discovers Earth has been altered – it is now populated entirely by Borg. Realizing the Borg have used time travel to change the past, Enterprise follows the sphere through the vortex.

Enterprise arrives hundreds of years in its past on April 4, 2063, the day before humanity’s first encounter with alien life after Zefram Cochrane’s historic warp drive flight; the crew realizes the Borg are trying to prevent first contact.”

Blade Runner vs Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049

In the beginning… SPOILERS ALERT !

BLADE RUNNER 1982 – Review

Director/Producer/Filmmaker, Ridley Scott directed the original BLADE RUNNER in 1982, based on Phillip K. Dick’s 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

The book and movie raised questions, in regards to our SOUL :

Is it possible to create a soul ?

Will humans become GOD-LIKE, trying to replicate, what our creator has already done ?

Is there a creator ?

What is the reason for having a SOUL ?

Can HUMANS create better creations, then our GOD ?

Will HUMANS mistreat REPLICANTS as slaves to do their dirty work ?

What are the consequences of becoming GOD-LIKE ?

This is far as the movie follows into the actual book, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

As much as I enjoy Ridley Scott’s creation, “Blade Runner” it was shocking to hear, the book and movie are two completely different entities. Other then this factor, Ridley Scott was sure not to disappoint, when I first watch this amazing creation at our local theatre, (while living in Kelowna, BC).

To further understand why this movie meant so much to me, you’ll have to know the circumstances.

1982 : Two years after the death of my child, Jenni, it was a time for soul searching, questioning the existence of any GOD. Emptiness throughout the years. However, we were grateful to welcome in our newborn arrival, ( it’s a girl!) Tianndra, on February 20, 1982.

When the movie, “Blade Runner” came to the Box Office in June 25, 1982, the storyline captivated me. Again, the question riddle my mind, “Do we have a Soul ?

To have a soul or not, is extremely relevant to me, because of Jenni’s legacy. Without a soul, our purpose in life would mean absolutely nothing. Our existence is nothing more then the next savage animal waiting it’s turn on the of evolutionary turntable, as humans experience the seventh massive extinction on earth ( this is why it’s so important to explore other planets and colonize, before it’s too late ). Since the dawn of life, we already had six deadly extinctions. Are we nothing more then an evolutionary existence until the next extinction wipes us out ?

You see, I have to believe we humans have a soul.

The original “Blade Runner” came and left us in awe. The last monologue of character, Roy Batty ( played by gifted actor, Rutger Hauer) TEARS IN THE RAIN :

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” ( Read more for an in-depth outline )

– Roy Batty

Back then, his dialogue brought tears to my eyes, remembering Jenni, close to my heart and soul. Needless to say, the original Blade Runner was a leading success.

BLADE RUNNER 2049 – Review

Blade Runner 2049

Fast forward 35 years later, finally… BLADE RUNNER 2049 was released to the public. To me, it too never disappointed. From the beginning quote on Blade Runner 2049 movie, it sure captivated the science-fiction storyline:

“REPLICANTS : Are Bioengineered Humans, designed by Tyrell Corporation for use OFF-WORLD. Their enhanced strength made them idea slave labour.

After a series of violent rebellions, their manufacture became prohibited and TYRELL CORP went bankrupt.

The collapse of ecosystems [ Blade Runner Black Out 2022* ] in the mid 2020’s led to the rise of industrialist NAIANDER WALLACE. whose mastery of synthetic farming avert famine.

Wallace acquired the remains of the Tyrell Corp and created a new line of REPLICANTS who obey.

Many OLDER MODEL REPLICANTS – NEXUS 8 with OPEN-ENDED LIFESPAN – survived.

Those that HUNT them still go by the name…

BLADE RUNNER “

* Everyone knew where they were during the BLACKOUT

Blade Runner 2049 continued in strong relationship to the original, not missing a beat, including epic storyline of how the EYE can expose any REPLICANT. In the original, taking a close-up, inside look of the cornea (clear lens) and the tall-tell signs of the iris (functions like the diaphragm of a camera), it was quick to red-flag a replicant. With replicants assuming human form in every way except strengthen, biological warfare and extreme military tactical, it’s hard to pinpoint any replicant within a crowd.

In Bladerunner 2049, Naiander Wallace ( aka, actor Jared Leto ), leading CEO of the now corporate giant produces controllable, docile replicants. To add even higher security, each replicant is easier to pick out now, because their eyes are embedded with a unique serial number.

Curious, however, Naiander Wallace is blind.

It’s not speculated why or how he became blind, just the fact he is blind. However, he has these cool mini-droids that see in any capacity he wants. We’re clear, Naiander is indeed the protagonist with a heavy chip on his shoulder. Perfection is everything to him. Anything of lessor quality is quickly disposed of.

Again, the writer (Hampton Fancher) cleverly leads us on with the EYE concept. Needless to say, I’m sure Hampton Fancher and Michael Green (also, both screenwriters) had a blast telling this intriguing mysterious story.

Remember Deckard (played by iconic actor Harrison Ford) ?

In the original Blade Runner, it was loosely assumed, Deckard could possibly be a replicant himself, but unaware of it. Unfortunately, in Blade Runner 2049, we still aren’t sure. However, leading on the audience, is without a doubt, a sweet morsel for the next Blade Runner 2060 ?

To update, Deckard falls in love with a female replicant, named Rachael, who doesn’t realize she’s a replicant at all (thanks to creator, Dr Eldon Tyrell). Deckard and Rachael run away and along their journey, they’re able to have a child (another gift by Dr Tyrell). This is another reason we think Deckard could also be a replicant and not know it. Maybe, before the doctor made Rachael, it’s quite possible, he may of made a male replicant, named Deckard.

Writer Hampton Fancher has left it open for viewers to make their own assumptions ; which is genius!

Now comes along Blade Runner 2049, with a modern updated replicant, Blade Runner K (played by Canadian actor Ryan Gosling) ; also named Joe by his sweet holographic girlfriend Joi, who believed K could be a real boy, due to his real memory implant ( most replicants were given fake memory implants).

However, we know this couldn’t be true ; but Joe did hope.

In the beginning of Blade Runner 2049, K finds skeleton remains of Rachael, who they realize died of a C -Section during birth. Immediately, it’s clear, there must be a replicant child (or possibly a human-crossed replicant ?). K’s mission (ordered by human Lt. Joshi) is to seek out and destroy the replicant child before a war breaks out between the replicants and humans. As well, CEO Naiander is determined to find the child before the humans, because he wants to produce an infinite army of replicants, to rule the worlds of the universe. Until now, his replicants aren’t prefect. His thirst to be a GOD, build an army of perfectly designed replicants, that could give birth, is his ultimate dream.

Talk about a control freak – dictatorship at its highest calling.

As we know, K has a conscious. He can’t kill the child, or can he destroy Deckard either. In itself, even though K isn’t human, it’s the most human thing that can be done. As said, “Dying for the right cause, is the most human thing we can do.”

If LUV ( a Nexus-9 replicant designed by Niander ) has anything to do with it, she wants to impress her boss, no matter the cost. After all, Niander entrusted her as his right-hand No 1 (if you will ), to give her very own name LUV, instead of a serial number, like K ( KD6-3.7 ).

The outcome could go either way.

LUV is indeed, the most calculated killer of all them all. Her determination is relentless !

Blade Runner 2049 is a mastery of screenwriting, leading viewers to more questions then answers. As a science-fiction writer, I adore open-ended questions throughout the storyline, with cleverly placed plot coupons**, adding to the mystery. Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 are both great movies and, (if you haven’t seen either one) a must to your next science-fiction thriller list.

Bari Demers – screenwriter and storyteller

**Plot Coupons : also known as a ‘MacGuffin’ – a plot device in the form of a goal, desired object, or another motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The MacGuffin’s importance to the plot is not the object itself, but rather its effect on the characters and their motivations. READ more…

Holocaust against Humanity – Phase One

Holocaust against Humanity

FORWARD : I wrote ‘Holocaust against Humanity’ back in 2015. After what I see happening with our recent series of events in United States, it’s alarming how our society is becoming cold and calculating, with both sides, using defensive children as bait. As young as 5 years old, children are pawns intertwined with a political agenda.

It’s becoming an inhuman society, based on greed, entitlement and money.

Once you’ve taken the conscious step to cross over the line, you now have become this evil entity within.

Please enjoy my science-fiction horror ; it just may be closer then you think.

YEAR : 2075

The robotic revolution was upon us.

It was common place to see androids from all walks of life, from space exploration to household protectors.  The world reknown Dr Ford created the first entertainment park called WESTWORLD.

Back in 2015, Steven Hawkins warned us,” Artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race”.

But no one took Steven’s advice.

At first androids were clumsy, to the point of even being comical. So, the thought of androids controlling mankind was preposterous, to say the least. All the ‘Terminator Trilogy’ movies heed caution, but again, it was just a bunch of science fiction.

Really, what could possibly go wrong?

Celebrations bringing in the New Year 2045 started off very promising, with new heights to space exploration.

Mankind had finally established a Mars colony after three failed attempts. Galileo III ( predecessor of satellite Galileo) explored our cosmic gas giant Jupiter for a third time. Scientists knew from previous missions, Jupiter didn’t have a land mass like earth, but were amazed to find a massive ocean swirling beneath the volatile atmosphere composed of hydrogen, helium and nitrogen.

The next question on everyone’s mind,” Could life really exist on Jupiter after all?”

After the discovery of sea life on Titan, it was logically the next step to assume Jupiters oceans could also be teaming with an alien form of life.

Exploration was going as planned until the fateful day on July 10, 2045, historical became known as ‘Black Friday’ when everything suddenly came to an immediate halt.

Life on Earth changed drastically, after our moon barely recovered from the most disastrous collision of any asteroid before it, appropriately named ‘Black Death’.

Black Death hit the side of the moon on July 10, 2045 at exactly 14:01 hrs PST.

It was only 20 meters round, but it’s composition of solid black ore pulverized our lunar satellite at speeds calculated at over 60 kilometers per second. It literally knocked our moon off its axis, catapulting precariously into an irregular elliptical orbit around earth.

The newly formed moon colonies never had a chance.

Earth’s land mass changed drastically due to the new gravitational pulls on our ocean tides. New lands were formed while existing land formations, such as New York, succumbed to the unexpected tsunami waves. Four million souls lost their lives that dreadful day in New York alone, but they weren’t the only ones effected. Vancouver Island, Baja California, San Diego and half of L.A. disappeared. Worldwide, 600 million people were swallowed up by the sea.

Mankind adapted, but Earth was never the same.

Earth was a colder place, as moon dust surrounded our globe, hiding our precious sun. The race for survival and humanity, quickly produced new technology, from automated unmanned vehicles called ‘Spinners’ to more efficient military androids to control the masses.

Everyone marvelled the massive Spinners swirling about, like beacons of stars, preformed to dissolve the dust crystals within our stratosphere. The filtration system effectively allowed our Sun to shine on earth once again.

But, politics had changed for the worst.

After the disaster, worldwide sects of survivalist tried to rule the earth, each with their own fascist dictatorship. Religious groups banned together, forming from the ‘Christian Knight Saviours’ to the muslin ‘Revelation Crusaders’.

All believed they were the RIGHT PASSAGE TO GOD.

It was true, as said in the verse, 2 Timothy 3:1-17

“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.”

Hundreds of thousands died by the sword of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Governments with large enough military forces barely survived, while the weak failed miserably. United States banded together with Canada while all of Europe formed their own allegiance. South America and Mexico became known as the ‘Savages Territory’, completely ruled by drug cartels and sect dictators.

United States formed the strongest military opposition ever seen before.

The newly appointed female President, Christine Jefferson was sworn in as the 60th President of the United States on November 20, 2060. President Christine Jefferson introduced a Bill, referred to as the Committee of Automation, whereby congress quickly approved, in order to begin immediately production of the military androids. It was their only recourse to maintain control of the government.

After a bloody war against the fascist religious sects, it was sworn man made religion would never be a part of mankind ever again. Only a spiritual GOD was allowed within the new DARK society.

With complete military rule, it was hard to believe it could possibly get worse, but it did.

On August 7, 2065 President Christine Jefferson appointed in a new list of judges who were NOT human. The new Supreme Court Judges were athletically logical, and completely android with the most sophisticated AIA brain, capable of making any judgement in seconds.

They surpassed human judges a thousand times over.

There were Ten Appointed Judges, each with a selected name:

1. Titan – Judge of Warfare

2. Zion – Judge of Apocalypse

3. Damian – Judge of Deceit

4. Zeus – Judge of All Rules and Final Convictions

5. Athena – Judge of Fairness

6. Aphrodite – Judge of the People

7. Cyprus – Judge of All Land

8. Calypso – Judge of Scientific Discovery

9. Atlas – Judge of High Court

10.Prometheus– Judge of Exploration

The first five years, the android judges did a remarkable job, cleaning up the riffraff of society causing serious harm to others. A select marketing team started a campaign across the world, referred to as :

“Androids Now! Securing your countries future. Isn’t it time YOU feel safe?”

The campaign made a bold statement how an android judge would help lock in security, adding a better quality of life. And, as an added bonus, each country who orders in the next 24 hours will receive an army of precision androids, at no extra cost. (*Shipping and taxes NOT included)

Countries scrambled to place in their orders, no matter what the cost! The unruly chaos made it a no brainer.

Soon, without anyone realizing the consequences, carbon copy android judges ruled each and every country across the world. Activists were swiftly silenced where hundreds of thousands mysterious vanished off the face of earth.

Rumours began to spread.

It was said children were taken away from their parents, shipped off to Mars to work in slave camps, mining precious minerals.

To keep the masses calm, an officially statement was released by Aphrodite herself; after all she WAS the, ‘Judge of the People’. Aphrodite was the most pleasing android of them all, fair skinned, brilliant sapphire eyes, athletically formed female body along with long braids of beautiful synthetic gold hair. Her soft voice added a sense of calmness, captivating any unsettled audience.

It was hard NOT to like her, in fact, most adore her.

Aphrodite announced to her people, ” Please do not be alarmed my children. I’m here to protect YOU and your future. Those in question have been detained in a federally inspected compound secured within an undisclosed area on Mars. Don’t worry, their needs are well looked after. It’s in the interest, welfare and safety of my beloved children.”

The crowd swallowed it up, hook, line and sinker.

It was rumoured the room was filled with a calming drug known as Oxycodoise, a derivative gas forming agent from the original Oxycodone. Like heroin, it’s sedative effects created a euphoric state of complete calmness.

With all the restrictions and techniques used to calm the masses, humans were still hard to control. Officials struggled to control a radical underground group known as, ‘The Freedom Fighters‘. THEY whispered the words, “These judges are nothing more than Executioners of the Free World”.

The word, “Executioner” went viral.

Freedom Fighters began spreading the word of fear across the world, stating unruly people were being rounded up and disposed of by means of an electrical gas chamber, as their children were rounded up to become slave labourers.

It was said to be the new Holocaust against Humanity – Phase One.

This holocaust made all other genocides in the past look like a picnic.  By 2070, the Executioners took away the freedom of expression and by 2075, they resolved the governments of the world, bringing in a military ruled government completely controlled by the Ten Judges.

It was named, ‘The United World of Americas’

Human Beings were no longer in control of their destiny.  Mankind became slaves to their own creation. It was the beginning of our Living Hell.
