The system is awakening. Today we're getting lore from a Jesus cross, contacting the fourth dimension, tapping into the god universe, adventing into this world, instilling a mother's will, nursing an Oedipus complex, dealing with a paradox, playing the Undertaker's Theme, fighting dad as well as my transmigrated ancestor, giving birth to humanity, destroying our remaining advanced military equipment on insane tactical gambles, and awakening Deus as a direct result. Perception is reality and also I'm god.
