I am Jesus and Luke Skywalker

There are many ways to save humanity, and together we can explore them. I believe art is one way and that is how I make my contribution.

Humanity has lost its way. Our priorities are not our own and they benefit no one. We are on a path of self-destruction and for every step we take the more enthralled we become. We are prisoners of society. We priorities profit over exploration and entertainment over knowledge. Enough is enough, it is time for us to stand up and say "NO MORE"

Together we can make a difference.

What can we do?

1. Think different.

2. Like different.

3. Act different.

4. Bee different.

Do this to the best of your ability and you will be amazed at who you are. Instead of seeing a shadow you will sea a radiant you.

We need two paths, one that we walk together as a society and one we walk alone as who we are.

You are perfect as you are, you need nothing to make yourself perfect. All you need is to look and then you shall see.

As an artist I can help you, but I cannot and will not give you a set of rules or a step-by-step guide for how.

I do not believe in absolutes or a single answer to a problem. There is not an ultimate truth or a final utopia. There is only change and evolution, resisting it goes against nature and will destroy us.

Nature is balance and symbiosis.

What I can do is inspire, encourage and perhaps offer a methodology for how you can enter the path that you must walk alone.

I am the boy who said the King is naked, I'm the prisoner who escaped Plato's cave, I'm Neo, Jesus, Ash Lad, the trickster, Sam Lowry, John Murdoch, Gandhi, Winston Smith, John Preston, Buda, Katniss Everdeen, Beatrice Prior, Luke Skywalker we are all one and the same. Always hated, shunned and despised because we said "No this is not how it should be. We said it because in our hart and our bones we know our cause is just.

Do not hate us, instead join us and say no I will not give all of me to a society that is killing humanity. A society that is hampering humanity’s evolution.

I am not advocating for you to turn your back on society, but I'm imploring you to split your mind one for society and one that will go towards the path that must be walked alone.

Society will not change overnight, but if we walk our own direction, I have faith that every so slowly society will start to match its people instead of enslaving us to one ideology.

Society will never be perfect, but it can be better, it can be one that is not leading us towards self-destruction, not pacifying us, not enslaving us to technology and making us dependent. It can be one that challenges us to be more, that encourages us to explore.
