We don’t know where they came from. And we don’t know why they came.

But we do know where they were going. And we finally know their objective.

Radio interview with Nature of Reality Radio

Hi my friends.

I had an opportunity to appear on Nature of Reality Radio with Andrew Fisher once again where we spoke a bit about The Founders and the Book of Man in general.

We also went somewhat far afield with other topics but I enjoyed very much the time we had and the interview can be found linked on my YouTube page as well as Andrew’s Nature of Reality Radio YouTube page here:

More news and stuff is coming.

Book of Man ASCENSION test cover

Hi again my friends.

I realize things have slowed down considerably over the last several months, but I am wading through the mass of tasks that are piling up on my plate.

I have finally had a breakthrough on development for the cover of The Book of Man ASCENSION, which has been somewhat problematic as it will be in full color.  Attempting to join different images of different color stock has been a consistent nightmare for me as I am not a graphic artist.

BUT!!  I think I have finally found the proper setup.

Let me know what you think.  Cheers – Brian

Here’s a surprise !

Hi guys. Just wanted to post this in support for The Book of Man ASCENSION, Episode 10.

Most of you already get it, but this is for those who are merely dabbling at the moment.

Cheers all.  (p.s. – Episode 5 & 6 of The Founders is on its way)

The Mainstream Media Wants You To Be Miserable
Apr 7, 2020

Peter Sage

For those of you who have stuck with me for a while, you knew that this video would eventually be coming. And not because of the current global situation where the media has done as expected, (This was filmed about a month before that) but because a few years ago, I did yet ANOTHER video on the media and how the only way they can make MONEY, is if they make you MISERABLE.

I think there is no more perfect time for us to talk about the role the media plays in society and what it’s REALLY doing to our minds behind the curtains.

March: In like a lamb, out like a tazmanian devil

cat and book

Hi everyone.  I realize it seems like ages since I have been up here and I may have to agree. Though, I have been busy with the latest episode in ways that would be really tough to explain.

This next chapter of The Founders has material needed in it which is not available anywhere, anyhow. And so I have been forced to have to literally create it myself – from scratch.

Since I am primarily a writer and a videographer, what I lack in the other visual arts as in visual effects, modelling, compositing and special effects would make an entire book by itself.

Yet we must press on and so what appears to be a delay in getting this out is really a trial-and-error study in making lots of effects shit up.

Some have come out pretty good (relatively speaking). The ones that don’t come out well at all require going over and over again in what seems to be days on end of blowing up the application repeatedly in vain attempts to make it do things I am not entirely sure it was made for.

But today I finished the first half of the episode, threw my mouse across the room, grabbed a beer and retired for the day – completely spent.

In other news – for those of you who go to Discord – my Discord app crashed horribly about 4 days ago and I am now getting this wonderful black screen. Needless to say, Discord Customer Support acts like they never heard of this before. Figures, huh?

I do have a few other really big pieces of news, but I am going to withhold that for now until I get final confirmation on them.

In the meantime, please bear with me as I am most definitely trying to get the episode done while working on a few other side projects that are directly related to the Book of Man.

Back with more news later my friends.

Cheers to one and all – dont be getting no viruses – and we will talk later.

The new permanent Analytics page


I have added a new Analytics page to the blog as listed above.

Though The Book of Man has not received a massive viral set of numbers, we do have an interesting data set which I believe hardly anyone else has anywhere.

From this list, you too will see that the video book series has been viewed in every country on planet earth.  Not a small feat my friends.
