Posts Tagged ‘Illuminati fiction’

Went out to do some more research today on the secret society/illuminati subject, as part of some knowledge building for my story! I have exhausted my eyeballs with all of the documentaries out there that cover these subjects, having watched crap loads of films by Alex Jones, Peter Joseph and David Icke. All that stuff was great for bolstering what I already knew and watching them has made me come up with some cool ideas for me to work into my book, but I felt that I should at least read a few books that are out there also, you know to diversify the content from which I research all my factoids from etcetera etcetera…

It was then that a friend of mine took me to this underground book store that houses tons of books on all matter of things, some old, some new, some that are banned! No seriously! and no its not pornographic >__<

I was told that I “cant share this place with anyone”, it was a secret and the only reason that I could come was because I was “writing a book that covers this type of shit!” (So eloquent ^__^) and that my friend had no real use for it anyway. He was joking of course but I think I will keep it a secret just so I can feel cool and in the in crowd for knowing a nifty little “Book Hive” that no one else knows about.

Secret book nest!












There were some great books that I definitely would have struggled to find elsewhere, and so now I must read and be inspired to whip up some more goodness that is “The Book of Ascension”!

^__^ Aiden out!

Hello people, today I have been pondering on what it would be like to actually own the “Book of Ascension”. Or more importantly what it would be like to be an “Ascendant”. Now obviously this is an easy question to answer, as I am sure it would suck!

Sure you would be the most powerful person on earth and rich beyond your wildest dreams, but only at the cost of being a target for anyone else that knows about the book and wants it for themselves. Anyone that does want it would surely perform a great deal of unsavoury acts and devilishly cunning plans in order to attain the mystical knowledge contained within.

So anyone that was an “Ascendant” would need to know some form of self-defence, in case of an encounter with the latest assassins and bounty hunters tasked with attaining the prized possession should occur, after all there is only so much that power and wealth can protect.

It was this train of thought that lead me to do some research on a suitable form of self-defence that my main character would use if such an encounter would present itself. I told myself that whatever I chose as his style, must first and foremost reflect his personality and it had to be something that is realistic. I did not want the book to end up being “Hollywood” in its approach to the action segments of the book. As I pointed out in one of my previous post’s here on the blog, I wanted the approach towards violence and action in the story to be realistic first and foremost, to prevent it from being unbelievable and “popcorn movie-esque” in its approach.

That is not to say that I don’t want those segments in the book to be as thrilling and entertaining to read as a blockbuster movie though. So after much comparative research on different styles of self-defence and martial arts, I found myself unsatisfied with what I could find, nothing felt believable, nothing fitted the character without making him some sort of action hero.

I decided to have him learn the art of using a gun, target practice and a silenced pistol is a good self-defence method. Point and shoot right? Okay I will have him learn that, but he needs a back up method in case he has runs out of bullets or is disarmed or something, so I pondered some more!

The style I chose was going to have to be something that anyone can learn with ease and was also a guaranteed confrontation finisher if used against any type of opponent regardless of their strength or skill.

So that’s when I decided to dream up my own philosophy of self-defence for my character to use. In essence it is best described as “primal survival”. A form of savagery that makes the makes the user succumb to their animal instincts and survive at any cost, the only knowledge it requires is the basic knowledge of weaknesses of the human body and its limits.

Everyone has eyes in their face so why punch someone in the face and hope they are knocked out? why not just get close enough to your opponent in order to puncture his eyeballs? That would surely stop your attacker from perusing you would it not?


Normal people would find it hard to do something like this because, well its pretty gruesome and not to mention what the legal ramifications of blinding someone or tearing their throat out would imply.

But that is the point, Saul has the survival instinct and nature to be able to do this sort of thing without conscience or hesitation if he needed, and the fact that he is an “Ascendant” places him above the law so there are no ramifications to consider. Saul is not a normal person.

So a self-defence strategy that is based around survival by ending your opponents existence as fast as possible. Using lethal attacks to tear, gouge, bite, rip and rend at the opponents weakest and most vulnerable parts of the body.

Hmmm… interesting, but there’s something missing. He needs something in order to make this easier. Saul is not a mutant or wolf man, no he is far better. He is human. But he needs to be able to tear, gouge, bite and rip with ease.

Hmmm… I know, he will use this!

This is the only thing I could find on Google images that was similar to what I had in mind. It  is less dramatic looking than this and less erotic in my imagination. ^__^
