Proxy Kill

Proxy Kill

"I will not hurt any student, and I will protect all learners from harm. I will remember that there is art to learning as well as science, and that caring, empathy, social, emotional and physical development are as critical as intellectual achievement. I will apply, for the benefit of each student, all available instructional supports and resources, in the knowledge and conviction that we each learn differently, and that everyone can learn." socratic-oath-for-educators

Socrates, the "father of western thinking" was forced by controlling society to drink poison for their perceived crime of corrupting youth.

0. pre-med
In the first decade of the 20th century, Snake Apple Tree wrote a serial of short stories entitled The Murder Chronicles (aka New Murder Fiction). 

It was published incomplete to

This has nothing at all to do with;  Liang Yaosheng's works of same title or R. Barri Flowers works of same title or the-line-up's interactive fictions of same title or anybody else using the same title which quite clearly is collectively a shareware title under no formal copyright property. 

Snake Apple Tree's serial as a complete includes both the final (unpublished) chapter(s) and also other short stories not included in the published core. They were not published due to their personal nature. The serial is billed as being semi-fictionalized accounts of true stories. They are tales from the underground; official records always show very different versions of events. This is because the official versions are cover-ups by a corrupt society.

The following are chapters of the final novella (Proxy Kill) of the serial. 


1. basis

Manufacturing a collective operational base which holds a paradigm and enforces it upon target. 
The paradigm enforces depression upon the target of such severe intensity that the target commits suicide.

Everybody says "its a shame" and enjoys their suffering of the loss of othe target from the collective. 

In animal species we observe this behavior. Example, a murder of crows (collective noun for a flock of crows in English language is 'murder') will peck to death the weaker members of the flock, increasing the amount of available food scraps to scavenge for the stronger members. This maintains the health of the flock while being a bitch for the target. 

2. control

Trying to control the target. 
Enforcing a false paradigm, establishing it in the mind of zombi's as the officially endorsed collaborative agreement, the dominant narrative.
Instead of respecting nature, intuition, spirit. 
Aboriginal map of reality has three circles: the world of nature, the world of Spirits, the world of Humans. The world out of balance is the world which accepts only Humans as valid and Nature to be exploited, and dismisses the world of Spirit as make-belief.
Shaman integrate it as Truth. 

The excuse to protect 'vulnerables' from those who can and want to help.
The result is: 
Without help, the vulnerable kills him/her self.

3. Luci

Luci was 14. 
I was 28. 

I saved up and bought a Japanese fretless blue electric bass guitar. 
Luci saved up and bought a red electric fender guitar. 

The first time we met was in the street, both in the glow of yielding our tools which were finally in our possession, on that first day of ownership. 


There is magick in instruments. 
There is even more magick in music.
There is magick in the universe to have put this coincidence together. 

We are but cogs in an intergalactic, multi-dimensional machine the mechanics of which are far, far beyond our understanding. The very best we can hope for is to recognize some small glimpse of this, through the divine worshipful connection of, when we trust our intuition, when we let music flow through us without mind getting in the way, when we have sex. These are the three principles of divine worship.

Luci was dark and worshipped dark gods with blood and sex magic.
She had a shrine to black metal and goth. 
She had candles and spoke a language I have not heard in several incarnations. 
A young witch coming of age, wise far beyond her years and obsessed with Jungian Shadow. 

Luci and I did not have sex. 
We did play music.
We did talk about psychology. 
Luci was depressed and cutting herself deeper each time. 

I had recently finished doing counseling nvq2 and frustrated that the red-tape limitations of doing it professionally for money through the state would make any real attempt at actually fixing somebody, not possible. The girl needed emotional and mental support, she needed a hug. She needed a fuck but being only 14 in a nation which kills paedophiles and where the age of consent is 16, we did not go there. We could have and it was a potential between us. Some other lucky brat would have to sort her out that way. I proved my parental responsibility. We behaved in accordance with social conformity despite occasionally facing down natural instinct together. 

Our relationship was mostly defined by music tutor and counselor. I lent her cd's and guitar effects boxes. We both used the same software, so I taught her some of the tricks I have learned with it. It helped her to focus on creativity instead of self-destruction. Her family members who got to know me and who trusted me remarked the positive influence I was having on her. She stopped cutting so often. Her scars began to heal. 

The prejudice twats did not like me sniffing around a vulnerable minor. 
They did not like the age gap. 
They beat me up in the street. 
They knew where i lived.
I stopped visiting her. 
That was my mistake. 
She nose-dived.
She cut too deep.
She dead now. 

4. Popi

After the tragedy of Luci I traveled to get over it. 
I trusted my intuition and I went in that direction, regardless. 

I found myself in the Valley. 
From the outside, the Valley is the last retreat of free people in Britain.
It does have an internet site and it is described on there as;
"Survival lifestyle"
There are no facilities.
It is entirely based on people and people skills. 
A place where free people can go to develop skills not even known about by the city slaves and their mindless polluting conformity.  

Drink water and wash from the stream. 
Import food or grow your own. 
The Valley is surrounded by forest. 
The community is organized well enough that a daily shit-bucket collection takes your toilet from your bender and deposits it in the community compost. 
Kids born there are educated locally and not by state school. 
It is hardly Canada and the reserves, but its the closest thing to it in UK. 
Everybody knows everybody. 
Everybody knows everybody's business. 

A culture in miniature highlights the issues which all cultures face.
Politics is as rife in the Valley as it is in the city. 
It is also somewhat of a tourist venue for those curious and able to find it and get there. 
Everyone lives openly, which is to say everyone has the same STDs because with a very small population of very open minded people, liberal people gonna do what liberal people gonna do. 

Popi grew up there. 
At 15 Popi had enough. 
I heard about Popi. 

Popi a Bright in the context of the 2017 movie Bright (directed by David Ayer)
Everybody loved her. 
Popi was the most free spirit the Valley had produced, of a population who uphold being a freespirit as the ultimate Human Right and Aspiration.
My intuition screamed at me that I have to connect with her.
As soon as possible. 
I asked around.
The community protect.
People do. 

"No mate, you ain't going near our Popi."
"Ye well thanks for making me feel like a wolf after a sheep but there's more to it than that." 
"We don't know you."
I looked her square in the eye.
"I am True. You don't know Truth."

I wasn't though. Had i been True i would have gone direct to her.
My mistake was a preconception that I needed to go through other people to find her.
The Valley works its mysterious charms; to take, to give, to set its own balance.

I knew that by connecting with Popi I could set her toward a path she needed to be on, and that it had to be me because nobody else could do it. Because of the primal nature of energy and how it dances, electromagnetic. I cannot explain this without sounding crazy to the crazy people. 

I had seen the girls spirit and connected with her in dream. Because brights stand out in the darkness and I have stared into that darkness so much that I can see the motions of brights, their colours which have meanings, where and how they flow, and ebb. I saw the imminence of her ebb.

The valley closed its cultural gates against me. 

I saw her ebb extinguish and I cried. 

Later, i heard that Popi had killed herself. 

Those who knew her explained, she had been trying to get away from the valley and its controlling culture. She had nowhere to go. 

I returned to my empty flat in the city which was a gate to so much of the multiverse. 

Another light gone out. 


Soon after that I encountered a young teenage boy crying on the back doorstep of a church at the back of my apartment. I asked him whats up? Sat next to him. Talked. He opened up to me. 

"Social services has forced me into adoption with a woman who does not feed me and hits me." 

He showed me the bruising.

"The teachers don't care. The police don't want to get involved. So I have run away. I don't know where to go." 

I could not take a vulnerable minor into my apartment alone without putting myself at risk. i do not operate that way. 

I was returning to my apartment to eat because I had not eaten for a day or two. Neither had Toni.
I suggested we buy food from the shop, which we did. Moving the body in walking is a step toward going forward, motion, holistic metabolic system regulating itself toward balance, starts the healing. He stopped crying and had a goal now, albeit temporary and small but the food would help.
He is eating my food, technically not my food but food I had bought. My energy is going into him with it. His configuration would shift and align with mine. This is how energy works. Idiots do not see it this way.
We discussed his friends and their parents being home, people who know him and can help. 
He was missing the hell out of his old friends, his old school, his old life. He had been banned form seeing any of them by his foster mother.
We visited his friend in another part of town. He was grateful that I knew the route. 
His friends parents were out and I did not want to drop him off there, it felt bad.
We visited another of his friends in another part of town. 
We borrowed the phone to call Toni's mother and she told him to fuck off.
The friend phoned his own mother and arranged Toni could stay the night there. 
She likes Toni and knows him well.
This felt good. The healing Toni needs even if only for one night.
I did not know what else to do.
Had I called the authorities, the police &/or social services, it would have betrayed Toni's trust for me and it would have caused him more problems. 
He would have run away again with nowhere to go.
He would lose trust in other people and his ability to trust others would be damaged.
Shaman are healers. We are advanced at emotional psychology and at psychology. 
We do our best to do the right thing.
I did not see Toni again but I did see a few of his friends sometime later who told me that he had gone back to his foster mother's and they hadn't heard of him since.

6. This list continues. 

Many more examples. People would rather drive their kids to suicide than allow a shaman to heal them. This is UK 21st century. I do not regard any of this to be my failing because I tried damn hard to prevent those who I could see are going to do it, from doing it. Everyone who was binding them to the path of self destruction did everything they could to get rid of me by labeling me as the danger element, as an unknown, as a potential risk. 

There is a beautiful tradition that by remembering to others the lesson of a persons life, is to honour that life.

Wuxia Moves


"She's a fake!"
"Look more closely."
"But she doesn't realize she's a fake!" 

Two old guys from a different, more respectable, experienced and older, insightful yet repressive culture; scrutinizing Holly (Auddrey Hepburn) as 'the symbol for Modernity as Lifestyle' (1960s), in the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's 1961 American romantic comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and written by George Axelrod, based on Truman Capote's novel. 

And so we go into post-post-post-modernist 2018 where the intelligensia elite has to involve itself with the practicality of fakes who do not realize they are fakes. The pursuit of Truth as embodiment of Aspiration and spiritual path sets its seldom accoladed acolytes as a caste apart. Capable to see through illusion and yet surrounded by a mainstream who perpetuate illusion, the intelligensia become outcastes. 

"Zombies do not recognize that they are zombies. That's the problem." SnakeAppleTree

"They go aggressive when it is showed to them and they simply cannot and will not integrate it. There's no getting through to them. They mistake their job role within their illusion of social hierarchy, for reality - because they are cognitive dissonance mental health condition. They are technically unsane. Yet as mainstream, they re-affirm delusion as 'normality'. They persecute the non-normative, which is to persecute the truth. For scientists this is a bitch of a situation."

Experiences outside of the structural norm define the out-caste. It is here where we discover that UFO's, fayries and exotic yet real stuff, is not mythical but actual. It is here with these knowledges that we can never go back to existing within the confines of a state of restrictive intelligence and delusional decision making. Lies built upon lies create monstrous towers inevitably to fall when the fundamental wave collapses, as science tells us it will. 


This is the foundation of our exploration of Wuxia. 

Wuxia (武俠, IPA: [ù.ɕjǎ]), which literally means "martial heroes", is a genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists in ancient China. Although wuxia is traditionally a form of literature, its popularity has caused it to spread to diverse art forms such as Chinese opera, manhua, films, television series and video games. It forms part of popular culture in many Chinese-speaking communities around the world.

The word "wuxia" is a compound composed of the elements wu (literally "martial", "military", or "armed") and xia (literally "honourable", "chivalrous", or "hero"). A martial artist who follows the code of xia is often referred to as a xiake (literally "follower of xia") or youxia (literally "wandering xia"). In some translations, the martial artist is referred to as a "swordsman" or "swordswoman" even though he or she may not necessarily wield a sword.

The heroes in wuxia fiction typically do not serve a lord, wield military power or belong to the aristocratic class. They often originate from the lower social classes of ancient Chinese society. A code of chivalry usually requires wuxia heroes to right and redress wrongs, fight for righteousness, remove oppressors, and bring retribution for past misdeeds. Chinese xia traditions can be compared to martial codes from other cultures such as the Japanese samurai's bushido tradition.

Wuxia is primarily a code of honor which instructs lifestyle. 

We have identified already that 'zombies do not recognize they are zombies and perpetuate falseness through their beliefs and thus actions'.

Contemporary Chivalry is, for the outcaste who have retained integrity and honor by standing against delusionary behavior of the zombie apocalypse mainstream horde, are by default Wuxia. Whether the individual aligns with the pursuit of waking up the zombies for the betterment of community, or avoids them, or a mix of both, is the choice of the individual. Even in Minecraft can zombies be rehabilitated. There is hope. 

Most outcaste are in some way broken by the mechanical systematic dehumanization of the state architecture. The hierarchy machine is not your friend.Recognition of this is critical to understanding why most Wuxia are kinked in some way; through constant barrage of abuse.

"When something so extreme happens to us that we cannot go back there in ordinary consciousness, but we need to go back there to heal ourselves, the pursuit of it defines us, the journey becomes expertise. This does not make us bad people."


“Stories of Imagination tend to upset those without one.” Emma Lou

We are living in a fayrie-tale. True to any fayrie-tale it has darkness and beauty, lightness and mirth of the sort black witches determine kill. It's full of Love fragile from the advances of the fake and obsessively controlling world of exploitation which is the System and Society. 

She asked me my favorite movies and for the first time I thought about trends running through the first three which came to mind. This, from an overview of what the movies are about. 

"It's about music. And a good hearted thief vs society and its corruption." (on Subway)

"That ones about music too, and good hearted thieves. It explores how society accepts or not, and how hypocritical its rules are." (on Diva)

"That one's a love story about thieves and honor. Being Chinese it story-tells in an epic and beautiful way. And has great music." (on Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon)

Recognition that we are in a story. That the genre defines the dialogue. That the direction is within a context for it to flow. That the tenets of storytelling apply also to the unfolding of our lives. 

After which, justification: "I'm not a thief!" I'm not. 

Except perhaps for the dog-hearts of daughters; infinite loving, attempting always understanding as default mode to return to asap, and can become bitches when this trust is scarred, as happens to far too many. It is why the tenderness of loving is critical to positive development of relationships. 

"These are all love stories too."

I like these movies because the underdog, forced to survive repression, has to make a stand. I like the characters who make a stand against oppression. They are heroes. But there is wisdom here too, they must be the fox to outsmart superior odds. Cunning which develops from experience and insight.

Subway - 1985 French comedy drama film directed by Luc Besson and starring Isabelle Adjani and Christopher Lambert. The film is classified as part of the cinema du look movement.

Diva - 1981 French thriller film directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix, adapted from the novel Diva by Daniel Odier (under the pseudonym Delacorta).

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (simplified Chinese: 卧虎藏龙; traditional Chinese: 臥虎藏龍) is a 2000 martial arts film. The film is a Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong and American venture produced by Asian Union Film & Entertainment, China Film Co-Productions Corporation, Columbia Pictures Film Production Asia, Edko Films, Good Machine International, and Zoom Hunt Productions. Directed by Ang Lee.

Why I like these films

These films all happen to have thieves in them. I am not a thief I do not respect theft. I do value that all property is theft from community but I also value that I am looking after the tools I need to be an artist better than some disempowered twat who would break it from social frustration or spite and envy and throw it in a river.  

I did not make these movies and decide to put thieves in them. Why did the film maker make that decision? Because they are adventurous and stand against not the normality of human community but primarily about survival in a culture where outcasts exist because capitalism, not property ownership, is inequality based and by default will always create a poor underclass which once accepting the pointlessness of aspiration toward an impossible dream accepts instead degeneracy as a survival necessity. 

In short, the excitement of those who stand against the enforced rules of a society which exploits instead of providing for all. This is the second factor, that it is not the community who the thieves target but the totalitarianism of a system which has let them down. In this they are not only vindicated but become also heroes standing for the moral cause of human equality for all. 

Stealing an apple (or indeed a hole) from the barrel is less offensive than stealing a fifth of a hard earned income through taxes or the ground beneath your feet by land ownership, the many in debt as slaves to the few, and most enslaved to a corrupt system which relies on persecution and exploitation as well as the brainwashing of the masses, to self-perpetuate. Within Wuxia culture the many facets of this are explored. Such exploration is of contrasts and by example. Often, by analogy.

Such examples are not always from Chinese literature and movies thus, in Western traditions the equivalents are to be found in movies about criminals which range from the good, stylish French movies such as Subway, Diva and Nikita (1990 Luc Besson), through film noir, the ugly of gangster movies such as Untouchables (1987 Brian De Palma), to the bad of mega violence movies such as Ronin (1998 John Frankenheimer) and John Wick (2014 Chad Stahelski, David Leitch)

All of these explore morality crisis through various situations varying from heroic revenge to simple robbery for personal gain and empirical expansion. To this we bring Lawrence of Arabia (1962 David Lean) and Zulu (1964 Cy Endfield) into the fold, and the inevitability of StarWars (1977 George Lucas) space opera dramatically inspired by wuxia precepts indeed to such extent the cliches listed as bullet point define the Wuxia genre.
