Thank you for the advice. Have you read Might Is Right, or The Survival of the Fittest, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, Darwin, Marx, Wagner: Critique of a Heritage, The Gay Science, The Education of Henry Adams, The Art of War, The Adams-Jefferson Letters, The Prince, The Epic of Gilgamesh, Paradise Lost, A Clockwork Orange, Brave New World, Leviathan, or The Republic? I am not a writer. I am a rebel.

It's not the choice of literature I point individuals interested in Sithism, or even self betterment within the current model of society we live in. We are talking Sithism still, correct? While the Art of War is a worthy read as it is an excellent starting point for understanding diplomacy, the rest of your selection is terribly outdated, or simply not relevant to the subject as a primer, no offense...

There are much better sources of reading available that will provide a better understanding from a "readers point of view," although books alone will never suffice to provide all the answers one may be searching for...

I've listed multiple times within the forums what I myself would point newbie readers interested in the subject, a meager ten minutes in the search bar will provide the links to the threads I am referring to, so I won't regurgitate it here...



I am not a writer. I am a rebel.


You don't need to be a professional writer to be a rebel, but in order to convey your message (whatever that may be) effectively to others one must study language, and how it is employed. One would also do well to study psychology, as this is imo a "language of the self" and is universal.

The days of fighting wars one on one with swords or even guns are over, the victor's of today's wars are employing language, psychology and technology. How can one possibly rebel effectively if they lack a understanding of how to effectively communicate? Hit the books buddy...

I've seen this "reading material" before; it's the insane rambling of one person who clearly needs to up his meds. The real Sith community wouldn't touch it with a forty foot pole.

Let me tell you why I am here. I am here because I know something. What I know I can't explain, but I feel it. I have felt it my entire life, that there is something wrong with this world. Have you read Pandora by Voltaire? My master, The Modern Zeus, sent me to the Temple of the Jedi Order to find a white horse and 144,000 Jedi.

I would highly recommend if you want just one Jedi to follow you you had better learn how to explain yourself. No one with an average intelligence is going to follow you on a whim because you have a feeling, or because you read a book. So work on learning how to express yourself efficiently and you might begin to learn how to sway the minds of others. Until then you're facing quite an uphill battle with zero chance of success...

Oh come now zenchi, have you not heard the calling of the great prophet Zeus? The warrior speaks of the 600 who rode into the valley of death in reverence of the glorious event of Carillon in which those that reach 35 years of age are ascended to the next level where the ships of light will defeat the invading Cylon armies! I will follow!

Dear Heavenly Warrior

Give yourself a break and stop mixing up christian mythology and other myths in your quest to save us from these accursed Sith or whatever it is you are doing , do your research , learn to write , there are free courses everywhere , the number 144.000 is straight from the bible and even mentioned by the Maya and is abused by almost every (pseudo) religion to scare people into believing that they are not "chosen"

@Heavenly Warrior

I am confused as to what you wish to accomplish. This "prophesy", if I dare allow it that name, is full of mumbo jumbo found the world over, as Marta pointed out.

But beyond that, what do you even wish to accomplish? Because posting this stuff moves nothing along and will get you nowhere.

Ive written quite a few fiction novels over the course of my life, and this whole Zeus thing and the accompanying "prophesy" is about as fictitious as it gets.

I just hope you'll look over your plans and see if they're worth it, and if keeping up this facade is just as worthwhile. There is plenty to do around here. You don't need to make up a backstory, you are interesting enough as it is without some grand prophesy to fulfill. If you need this to feel important, it's having the opossums effect.
