The Secretary Addendum

November 10th, 2017

The Secretary Addendum has been completed. It is available for sale both as an electronic book and a printed book. More details are available in the NofNA bookstore.

This book was funded by generous patrons on the website Patreon. Without their support, this book would not exist.

Work Schedule Changes

September 4th, 2016

Dear All,

Recently, donation pledges from those wishing to support NofNA through the website Patreon went past a certain threshold, which promises the creation of NofNA books. The first book to be done in this way is the Secretary Addendum.

This will entail a change in the way NofNA is updated. Due to the work needed to complete this task—two new stories—Syconium will only update once or twice a week. The rest of the week will be reserved for working on the Secretary Addendum.

The reason for this change, is that I am running out of money needed to support my working on NofNA full-time. In approximately 6 months, I will no longer be able to work on NofNA, at least at the current rate. This increased attention towards the Secretary Addendum is in hopes of completing it before that time. Syconium will not be able to be completed before that time.

Back when Secretary’ was being illustrated, I seem to remember working on it and Lycosa at the same time… I also remember falling asleep in front of my computer a lot. I do not think it is possible to do such a thing with Syconium.

Should the Secretary Addendum be completed before this deadline, I believe I will be able to update Syconium at the normal rate again.

Please take note of what will happen in the coming weeks on this website, as the normal schedule now no longer applies.

My Regards,

Solar System

January 19th, 2016

Solar System has completed. I thank you readers who have seen this journey through to the end.

To commemorate this occasion, Discovery’s final mission, I designed an embroidered patch similar to the space shuttle mission patches produced by NASA. This patch is available to buy from the NofNA store; the first appropriate NofNA merchandise that is not a physical book.

The next Nature of Nature’s Art story will begin shortly.

In any case, pledge or none, you have my gratitude for reading.


The Three Internet Structures of Solar System

June 19th, 2014

Notes on the three internet structures that appear in Solar System.

This is the first Internet, as we have today. It contains only content, and it does not moderate itself. It is a persistent record of the raw dump of human consciousness, aggregated into a single place that anyone can access.

This was invented after privacy became less important to society. The Intranet sought to add context to content, tagging every piece of information on the Internet with its corresponding human element. Good humored interactions now displayed their sources; angry interactions revealed just where the anger was coming from. The Intranet became a dynamic footnote for every person’s life, for others to read at will. Some people still opt out of the Intranet, like Hector. However, this is viewed as socially deviant behavior.

DripNet, Karma, etc.
This, the third internet invention, is what allowed humanity to prosper to its current point. I call it DripNet, but that is not likely to be its actual name. This internet is a karmic modulator for the entire scope of human interaction as it occurs over the network. Where the internet was humanity’s Id, and the Intranet its Ego, this is humanity’s Superego. I’m not sure of the date, but this Internet had only recently become active.

DripNet assesses the ability of person’s network interaction to harm another person, and adjusts it accordingly, without knowledge of either the person who initiated the interaction or its respondent. This creates a multitude of internetworks, perhaps one for each person. In this manner, the flow of hatred and fear from person to person (as exemplified in Secretary) is stopped and whisked away to the fringes of “humanity’s consciousness,” what the global network had become.

DripNet also has the ability to maintain people’s persons. When people grow out of the vehement passions and bonds which caused them to ardently spill out into the internet with pride, those old people are deleted, since they have been effectively been abandoned by their sources. I’d imagine that there are some hard-core history groups which preserve the data of the network, but DripNet cleans up public interactions which no longer have a source. In this way, people’s own persons are verified by themselves, and the internet becomes a continuum of a life instead of an immutable record.

Due to its distance from the Nature of Nature’s Art world, the story Pika has been relocated to its own subdomain, located at the following address:

The 10%+ Second Edition

The 10%+ Second Edition

The second edition of 10%+ has been completed and is now released for sale. Please visit the NofNA bookstore for more information.

Solar System stopped for 10%+ books

January 16th, 2013
Solar System stopped for 10%+ books

The current NofNA story, Solar System, will not update as I work on compiling the new edition of 10%+. Updates will resume when the books have been completed and sent to the printer.

Recompiling the books will take an unknown amount of time, but there is not much to be changed. The books will be condensed into 3 volumes from the old 6-volume format and will feature new covers. Thanks to modern printing technology, the RGB colors as shown through a computer monitor will be reproduced more accurately in print.

See you soon.
