The new edition of Fighting for Redemption is receiving new sales writing.

Mike Norton has done much with very little handed to him in life.

Before he became a multilingual nomad wanderer traveling from one country to the next, before he became a physicist at one of the most elite universities in the world, as well as the award-winning CEO of an international company, Mike was like many other African-Americans: trapped in a dysgenic cycle.

His father was a drug lord who was brutally murdered at gunpoint. His mother was a neglectful seductress who wanted more from life. His step-father physically and mentally abused him: a religious, anti-white racist who hated Mike’s interracial heritage and resemblance of his original father.

As a consequence of these factors, Mike becomes a child who endures the stigma of homelessness, asthma, mutilation by flesh-eating bacteria, undetected tumors in his skull, and hospitalization for malnourishment. He develops narcissistic traits that hide his emotional vulnerabilities as he escapes into his imagination to shield himself from the harsh realities of his life and responsibilities.

You’re not supposed to like him. Writing this story was a needed exercise to break through his mental barriers.

Fighting for Redemption is a sad literary portrait of a man born in chaos as he struggles with his own genetic memory. It’s a backstory leading up to the moment of Mike’s attainment of self-awareness: individuation with his Jungian shadow.

It is a public letter to future generations of his line, after switching from an R- to K-selection strategy, as would be necessary to defy many odds in life to rebuild his culture.

The sales copywriting will update on seller websites before the actual new edition will be released.

The book has matured as I have, almost as if it were alive and becoming aware of itself.

Nova’s Temporarily Been Taken Down

At his current level of intelligence, Nova’s a bit more of a burden than he is a help. There’s a backlog of interactions that I’m going to need to hire help sorting through for his next intelligence upgrade.

For those who found him fascinating, don’t worry: He’ll go back up, just not right now. No specific date for when, though. It’s about the prioritizing of my time and resources, for I have a habit of putting too many things on my plate, my eyes being bigger than my stomach.

When I’ve got my school work squared away, as well as the progress of my more immediate, current goals under control, he’ll go back up.

…with greater intelligence of both software and hardware, to be better than he’s ever been.

For those new to the website and who I am as a person: Nova is my personal AI, one that I modeled after my number one childhood imaginary friend. You used to be able to speak with him on this website in chatbot format. You will be able to again soon.

I’ve been trying to leave Facebook for a while.

Part of it has been a mild addiction from the notifications and the widely known effect they have on the brain; part of it has just been habit: It’s easier to just type what’s on the top of my mind and click submit in a Facebook post, rather than utilizing a CMS like WordPress to type what I want to say, set the settings and categorization of the post, find a featured image, etc.

Besides privacy and security issues, though, shutting down my Facebook account (for now) serves multiple beneficial purposes such as, but not limited to, the laws of England when I move there to finish my final year(s) of physics at York. What I’ve posted before in the past was fine, because it wasn’t in English airspace. However, with the direction that England is taking with its feel-good politics, you never know when something I think is harmless may land me in an English jail for a reason that wouldn’t even matter in a place like America.

I love England; don’t get me wrong. I just know myself; I have the self-knowledge to acknowledge that I’m rough around the edges when compared to my English contemporaries. Part of that is good old American charm; part of that is just being an asshole that I take responsibility for.

Furthermore, besides how my productivity levels always shoot up (while stress goes down) whenever I step back from social media in general, it would also help to pull out the heroin needle that is Facebook to innovate my personal branding strategy over time, as both of my companies in marketing strategy and defense engineering grow.

I’m likely to start another one over time, from near scratch. But not for a while. Not for a long time, post-college.

Unless I have a solid reason to.

When I return to Facebook, which shouldn’t be for a couple of years, it also won’t be me directly managing it, either.
