We got the Recipe and the Manual , now all we have to find is Daniel …
Yes ! You got it ! Now try to start a thread with the Title ( Recipe ... ) and the actual web address . If it doesn't get banned I'll eat it . Nevertheless you got the web site . See also the main story also shocking !
OK Urod I have been awake all night reading this from top to bottom.
Is the story fictional with a hint of hope for the future chucked in for good measure?
I can see why the leaders of capitalism would not like these ideals put forward in the slightest.
Now about these dream aliens that got chucked in at the end totally unexpected, what do they have to do with the story?
Me myself personally have not had a nightmare for years and can rarely recall my dreams, maybe it is all the weed.
I since as long as I can remember have been an insomniac and the longest I have gone without sleep was more than a week and I was displaying a lack of coordination a lack of a reasonable train of thought and if I stared at shit for too long it would start to move and gel in to itself( kind of like LSD).
I have visions during meditations of benevolent beings and lots of them all around us all the time and sometimes if the brain is at the right frequency I can participate with these beings and have done, the Romanians from your story remind me of them, except the beings I have encountered do not talk apart from the old man, the rest seem to smile encouragingly at me and I am running lists off to one of them in particular about what I am achieving inside myself like losing my fear containing anger things like that.
The reason for sleep is to transfer your short term memory to your long term hence the brain dysfunction from lack of sleep.
I do not discredit what you have shown me but from someone who does not suffer from nightmares and has been an insomniac most of his life it is hard to except that the whole world is being put to sleep every night so aliens can play about and scare me all because they have nothing better to do, they could at least do it for nourishment.
You have nothing to fear but fear itself.
What bugs me the most is the banning of this piece of work from this and other sites I think it has more to do with the technology used in the story rather than the ideals.
All in all it was an enjoyable read and actually made me cry at some points as I would love for a leader to emerge with such passion and empathy for the people and not the corporations, would love for my or any country to pull out of the IMF and focus on the betterment of man rather than war and profit to set an example to all.
I would love to see this happen in my life time.
I doubt this will happen in my lifetime unless some dramatic changes come about.
