turtles all the way down
of Francis Fukuyama
from The Origins of Political Order: From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution, turtles all the way down
...What I am aiming for in this book is a middle-range theory that avoids the pitfalls both of excessive abstraction (the vice of economists) and excessive particularism (the problem of many historians and anthropologists). I am hoping to recover something of the lost tradition of nineteenth-century historical sociology or comparative anthropology…
...Putting the theory after the history constitutes what I regard as the correct approach to analysis: theories ought to be inferred from facts, and not the other way around…
...There is a perhaps apocryphal story, retold by the physicist Stephen Hawking, about a famous scientist who was giving a public lecture on cosmology when he was interrupted by an old lady at the back of the room who told him he was speaking rubbish, and that the universe was actually a flat disc balanced on the back of a turtle. The scientist thought he could shut her up by asking what the turtle was standing on. She replied, “You’re very clever, young man, but it’s turtles all the way down.”
This then is the problem with any theory of development: the particular turtle you pick as the starting point for your story is actually standing on the back of another turtle…

There are many reasons why that space, over there,
(point to the back space)
is in a triangular shape. One of those reasons connects to the shape of the staircase you just walked down to get here. If you can remember the experience of walking down that staircase, you might be able to imagine the experience of, this light,
(point to natural light on the floor)
coming down here, from above.
The school building we are in right now was designed by the architect Walter Netsch in 1977, in the fashion of his radical geometric theory called “Field Theory”. This theory proposed to change rectangular volume into complex shapes by rotating each floor in different directions.
(demonstration by hands) So imagine these two rectangles clasped together and from the rotation these two unintentional spaces emerge.
The shape we have here is mainly because the floor above us has been rotated to the other direction. The beauty of this theory is we could end up with really interesting spaces, just like that space
(point to the back space)
and the staircase.
Field theory quickly fell out of fashion, because these buildings made people lose their orientation easily. And, it is really hard to tell where north is when we are down here.
However, If we look at the field theory on paper, it is much easier to understand why it was popular.
(demonstration by hands again) (Do the Birds twice)
This simple but smart gesture, as an aesthetic, was popular during the 70s. It mimics the aesthetic of Zen Buddhism, which was deeply loved by artists and intellectuals back then. Many argue, the rapid rise in popularity of Zen Buddhism was driven, at least in part, by westerners guilt over bombing Hiroshima and invasion of Vietnam.
There was another occasion when a triangular space, like this,
(point to the back space)
In the Pyramid of Khufu, we now enter, through a horizontal tunnel several meters above the ground. The tunnel was originally created by the 7th Abbasid Caliphate, Al-Ma’mun, in the year 832 AD. Under his command of searching for great knowledge, his tomb robbers dug a tunnel into the pyramid until the tunnel reached a pathway inside. Where the two pathways intersected, (Demonstration with Arms) for the first time after thousands of years natural light came into the pyramid. That light casted on the wall, just like this light
(point to the light)
hits the curtain. On the wall, the tomb robbers saw an illustration of a man, which we now know are actually ancient Egyptian text. When the natural light entered, the bottom of the text, in other words, the bottom of the man was lit up, but the face part remained in shadow. The tomb robbers lit up a torch. They moved closer, with this artificial light from the torch, the face of the text, the face of the man was lit up.
(turn on a lighter, move to the face area, hold for 15 second, put down the lighter)
(walk to the switch, turn on the light, and close the curtain)

1988, right above us,
artist Dread Scott made the installation “What is the Proper Way to Display the US Flag?”. In it, a piece of American flag was laid down on the ground as part of the installation. Viewers were encouraged to step onto the US flag while they were viewing a picture mounted on the wall and recording their experience onto a blank book. The artwork became the center of national controversy over its use of the American flag. Demonstrations against this artwork were held in front of the Art Institute of Chicago. President Bush Sr. declared the artwork “disgraceful”. The entire US Congress denounced this work. Senator Dole specifically noted that the law would apply to “the so-called ‘artist’ who has invited the trampling on the flag.” Dread, along with three others, burned flags on the steps of the US Capitol. This resulted in a Supreme Court case and landmark decision.
2016, after the election night, enormous demonstrations against the elected president Donald J. Trump were held across the United States of America. Many symbols were used during the demonstrations, including the national flag of the United Mexican States, and the rainbow flag of the LGBTQ community, but the US flag was mostly absent, except for a few burning cases.

1907, a great deal was signed between the United Kingdom and Russia. The deal, which was known as the Anglo-Russian Entente, tried to solve conflicts of interest between the two countries in Persia, Afghanistan and Tibet. The deal eventually grew into one of the three pillars which led to the burst of World War I.
▬ ماده اول ـ دولت بریتانیای کبیر تعهد میکند که در ماورای خطی که از قصر شیرین به اصفهان و یزد و خواف ممتد شده به یک قطعه در سرحد ایران که در محل تقاطع دو خط سرحدی روس و افغان منتهی میشود تقاضای هیچگونه امتیاز سیاسی و تجارتی از قبیل امتیاز راهآهن، بانک، تلگراف، طرق، حمل و نقل، بیمه و غیره برای خود یا تبعه دولت ثالثی ننماید و با درخواست این قبیل امتیازات از طرف دولت روسیه در منطقه فوقالذکر مستقیم یا غیرمستقیم مخالفتی ابراز ننماید. بدیهی است که امکنه فوقالذکر جزو منطقهای است که دولت بریتانیای کبیر از تقاضای امتیازات فوق خودداری خواهد نمود.
▬ ماده دوم ـ دولت روسیه به نوبه خود تعهد میکند که در منطقه واقع در آن طرف خطی که از سرحد افغانستان از قاذیک (مشرق بیرجند) و بیرجند و کرمان ممتد شده و به بندرعباس منتهی میشود تقاضای هیچگونه امتیاز سیاسی و تجارتی از قبیل امتیاز راهآهن، بانک، تلگراف، راه شوسه، حمل و نقل، بیمه و غیره برای خود و اتباع خود یا تبعه دولت ثالثی ننماید و با درخواست این قبیل امتیازات از طرف دولت انگلیس در منطقه فوقالذکر مستقیماً مخالفتی ابراز ننماید بدیهی است که امکنه فوقالذکر جزو منطقهای است که دولت روسیه از تقاضای امتیازات فوق خودداری خواهد نمود.
1917, as a result of World War I, the Russian Empire was overthrown by its own peasants and factory workers in a series of revolutions. The revolution was led by the left wing majority “большевик” (Bolshevik). Because they used a red flag as their symbol, the revolutions were also known as The Red Revolution. The Bolshevik formed the ruling communist party in the Soviet Union. The fall of the Russian Empire left a vacuum in Persia, Afghanistan and Tibet. The force of The Great Britain took it over afterwards.
1933, a British writer, James Hilton published his landmark novel “Lost Horizon”. In the book, he created an imaginary buddhist utopian world named “Shangri-La”. It was inspired by accounts of travels in Tibetan borderland.
However, 700 years before that, when Marco Polo first visited the “Shangri-La” region, it was not as remote as what “Lost Horizon” suggested. Under the rule of the Mongols, hundreds of countries in that region had been united. The region became important because it was one of the only two trade routes to get to China. The capital of the region, during those days, was rather an international metropolis with a majority of Chinese and Muslim population.
600 AD, the Chinese Empire banned the use of castration, which led to a shortage of Eunuchs. The Chinese nobles had to import Eunuchs from the Arabic world. So over 700 years after, the Eunuchs in China were known as 火者 (huozhe), a sonic translation from Persian “خواجه” (hâce, hoca), which means fire man. Also, most of the “خواجه” had a family name of Muhammad, which translated into Chinese sonically as 马 (ma), meaning horse. During those days, the horse fire man was part of people’s understanding of muslims.
1368, the Mongol Empire’s ruling over China was eventually overthrown by a series of peasants’ revolutions. The revolutions often used a red banner and red flag as their symbol, just like the Red Revolution in Russia. The last region the Chinese took back was the one celebrated by Marco Polo as a beautiful place embracing cultural diversity, and fantasized by James Hilton as the remote utopian Shangri-La.
When the Chinese army broke into the capital city of this region, they celebrated their victory by killing all the adult Muslim men, and castrating the younger ones and selling them away. This cruel action actually fit to their traditional idea of Muslims equaling eunuchs.
A boy, at the age of 10, named Togetherness Horse, was castrated after the fall of the city. He was sold to serve a warlord, and then the warlord gave him to the prince as a gift. His father, who fought to defend the city, was killed.
Togetherness Horse was famous for his height, strength, military and martial art talent. The prince he served eventually became the third Emperor of the nation after a three years of brutal civil war.
Togetherness Horse fought the war and played an important role to finally secure victory. After the prince took over the crown, Togetherness Horse was given a royal family name Zheng, and titled as the Treasurer of Islam, Buddhism, and Taoism.
Togetherness Horse was also known as the first Chinese to explore the sea world. The sea world was never the Chinese priority back then. And many times, trading or travel over sea was actually banned by the government to prevent foreign influence over Chinese politics. It was the same attempt, perhaps, to keep Russia from interfering with the US election.
There were rumors saying it was actually Togetherness Horse who convinced the Emperor to invest in exploring the sea world. However, in this rumor, Togetherness Horse’s own motivation remains a mystery.
Before Togetherness Horse’s trip, he went back to his hometown. He built a tomb for his father who was once the nation’s enemy.
On the tombstone, Togetherness Horse wrote about all the wonderfulness of his father, how kind a person his father was, what a beloved leader of the community he was, what a great father and loyal husband he was. On top of that, Togetherness Horse marked down his own success in the Emperor’s inner circle as well. He didn’t mention the battle killed his father and castrated him
After so many years, the tombstone still stands. According to the tombstone, Togetherness Horse’s father was named Hajji Horse. The name Hajji was given to muslims who had the honor of visiting the holy city of Mecca.
Togetherness Horse must have heard, many times, about the trip to the holy city. He must have heard, many times, about that part of the world his family came from. Maybe many times, Togetherness Horse imagined what the holy city looked like, what people there looked like, and what their life looked like. It might be a really similar experience for the second generation immigrant in the United States imagining where their family is rooted. The difference is, back then, he could only rely on his own imagination. It was the imagination of a 10 year old boy, whose father was killed, and himself castrated and sold into a big house of nobles who didn’t share his origin at all. The imagination was probably a very beautiful one.
So maybe,Togetherness Horse insisted to do the sea travel, because he wanted to go to Mecca, where he had imagined as the location of his identity.
July 11th, 1405, Togetherness Horse started his first voyage.
The way he traveled was very different compared to the Western explorers who traveled during the colonial period. He had a crew of 62 ships and 28,000 members. The main ship was 100 times larger than Columbus’s crew. Instead of searching for treasures, the Horse crew carried tremendous amounts of treasures and goods with them. Whenever they encountered another nation, they gave out treasures to establish a diplomatic relationship between the two countries. They also intervened in local conflicts in the way of giving both sides protection from China.
It was kind of a surprise to see Togetherness Horse pursuing his mission in A peace loving way, despite the fact he actually grew up in a very cruel time. Maybe it was because he converted to three religions.
Togetherness Horse made 7 grand voyages through his life time. He died during the last trip and was buried in Kozhikode, India. He reached as far as the red sea and parts of eastern Africa. He never went to Mecca, even though he sailed to the Middle East a number of times.
If the motivation behind the voyage was a return to his identity, he found something greater and more urgent, or even maybe he developed a new identity. This new identity made the one taught by his father irrelevant
If the entire world’s population migrated to the United States of America, the country would be populated at a density similar to the city of Chicago. Please take a moment to remember your trip today here. Which neighborhood did you come from? Which train did you take? How did the buildings look like on your way? How many people did you encounter on your way? What did they look like? Sound like?
Remember this experience. Imagine, if the entire world’s population immigrate into the United States of America, all 7 billion people, which means every single person lived here right now multiplied by 23 times. People will have a similar living experience just like people who live in Chicago right now. They might vote similar to Chicago as well.

How did we solve our conflicts from the very beginning?
The human specie travelled out from east Africa 100,000 years ago. By 12,000 years ago, they had already spread across the globe. What made them cross deserts, terrains, oceans? What did they escape away from?
One theory was the prehistory human groups could only function under a really small number no larger than 150. Similar to the amount of people, here.
(point to the people in front of you)
In which people can trust each other by simply knowing everyone and everyone’s gossips. When the population grewpasses that threshold, the group would break up. One side stays, occupying the region, while the other side moves aways. But when there were no place to move out to, war thrived. When we needed more man to fight the war, Country thrived. When we couldn’t afford to kill anymore, culture thrived.
Human has repeated this practice so many times, until the entire globe is populated, until people have no place to escape. Until then, people have to face the problems of living with each other. And this, perhaps, is the moment when culture thrives.
Culture is a tool box for us to find possible solutions to solve our conflicts, in order to be with each other. We invented the idea of nation to project influence and fight wars. We invented religions to hide behind the promise of the afterlife. We push through democracy to fulfill our believes in equality. We invented different identities to feel unique and feel we belong.
In this sense, culture is together we find a solution to tolerate each other, to therefor those , to those we love or hate. Culture is a way to find our own space and our own entertainment. Culture is a way to create an illusion for us to hide away from conflicts in everyday life.
But maybe we won’t become the fully cultured human until we find a way to live together with everyone. Imagine the entire world’s population moved to the United States and lived together. By then, we may need another identity, another symbol, another flag to represent that identity as just simply humans on the planet. But for now, that identity still remains a blank one.

at the moment a mission launches, its launching ends its subjective. "subjective" means a present of a certain consideration of intention and context. "ends" means a departure.
before a mission launches, it is driven by an intelligence. an intelligence walks through a rational way. a rational way understands and observes a mission from itself. a rational way doesn't stand alone but be carried by a system as its tool.
tool means a weapon with limitation. imagine a sword can't be used as a pair of scissors and a hammer can't be used as a butter knife. most of the time, a system can swing "a rational way" smoothly . just like any tool/weapon, this swing has its limitation which means "a rational way" stops at its limitation. "a rational way" doesn't lead to anywhere.
a system can be language, mathematics or any kinds of artificial-ness-es just like "a rational way". this artificial-ness drifts by the nature of artificiality/subjectivity. it reshapes itself through the way it observes. the drifting is often romanticized as "organic".
"organic" is "chances" plus with some attitudes. "chances" is a multiply one but with a limitation. limitation means there is possibles beyond the contained. if we need a system to understand and describe, we can not understand and describe beyond the limitation of a system. but we know the limitation is there.
there is a abstract one.
I imagine abstraction as a blurring of chances, blurring just like a man trying to dodge thousands of bees attacking his face. however, this imagine must be wrong and overly pictorial.
the term "must be wrong” means a failure from its very nature. the term “overly pictorial” means a metaphor of both rejection and acceptance towards the five senses of human as this romanticized existence.
I imagine chance is meant to be.
a mission was launched in 1972, at an island of artificial-ness-es. a spacecraft, Pioneer 10, was sent into the universe, as the height of the tallest human, as the weight of the fattest man. the spacecraft carries a piece of human information on a plaque as a message for extraterrestrial lives. the plaque, 6” by 9” , is a metal piece designed to survive next 50,000 years. a pictorial messages engraved, a nude figure of human male waving his hand (or hi-fiving) and a nude figure of human female standing, without her genitals presenting.
the spacecraft traveled towards the outer space, at a speed of 12 kilometer per second. it past Neptune in 1983 and became the first human-made object to depart the Solar System. it finally lost its connection to the earth by the year 2003. if Pioneer 10 hasn’t crashed yet, the distance between Pioneer 10 and earth reaches 120 AU by the year 2015, which means if a person tried to catch it, he,she, or they need to travel at the speed of the light for over 16 hours,or if he, she or they are too tall/fat, he, she or they will never catch it.
the mission of Pioneer 10 demanded a huge amount of funding, a funding 5 times larger than the cost of the Presidential campaign that year. it only made possible because of the political ideology of Cold War, in which the Country demanded spectacles. the same ideology funded the nihilistic and chaotic art of America. the art means the possible ways of spectacles. the spectacle demands no real success of achievements. in that sense, Pioneer 10 might be an art piece. by analyzing its formality and context, Pioneer 10 landed its meaning on a tasteful comment onto the ultimate meaninglessness of human kind. the meaninglessness lies on the contradictories. the plaque is intended to be captured by aliens, but the traveling time will out live the longevity of the plaque itself. the traveling is intended to be the main displaying (if it is an art piece), but no one on the earth could see it during traveling itself. in that sense, when this art work is on display, the audiences exist in absence the entire time. no one can really experience it, neither the aliens, nor the humans.
however, lacking of audiences equals no denying its existence. after the spacecraft itself lost connection with the earth, the existence of Pioneer 10 lasts. its objectivity exists with the spacecraft itself, flying, out in the space, and also exists in people’s imagination, imagining its flying, out in the space. meanwhile, its subjectivity exists in people’s understanding through documentations. understanding means the transmission from the observed to the received through imagining. in this sense, for people, both subjectively and objectively, the existence of the spacecraft doesn’t matter anymore, it lives inside their own imagining. it exists as known.
known means its symbiotic relationship between its existence and the imagining of us, subjectively and objectively. the real spacecraft (art if it is) vanished 12 years ago. the real art (spacecraft if it could be) matters none. only the known lingers. the known, along with us, reaches its abstract infinity. the infinity carries by culture collectively, the culture possessing human as vase.
I imagine there is a Pioneer 10 blurs from the known we know as Pioneer 10 drifting towards there.
Friends, lovers, colleagues, and artists from all over the world, thank you for being here tonight. it is my great honor to be surrounded by all your energies and creativities. Chicago was one of the greatest cities on this planet. it was a city full of dreams, the opportunities to achieve them, and a great spirit of believing in them. it is a place where human kind merges wisdom and hard labour perfectly together to make true miracles.
150 years ago, people literally lifted the land 8 feet to make this bitter draining lake city a lovely home. it is neither the blessing of sir Moses, nor the great power of God, but the true uniting of people that made the impossible possible. it was people working together, architects, engineers, workers, artists, small business owners, politicians and citizens. the power of the togetherness is so strong that even the landscape could be reshaped. these people, they are the people who believe in dreams. a dream for better life. they are also the people of actions, the actions created by all races, all genders, all sexualities. Chicago has always been the front line of fighting for better lives. Abraham Lincoln was nominated in Chicago for the nation’s presidency, setting the stage for racial equality. Jane Addams created the Hull House here, in Chicago, where some of the first programs were developed to make models for the new field of social work. Chicago was also the leader in movement to improve public health. even the international labour day was named because here, in Chicago, after the Haymarket massacre followed by riots fighting for justice, Americans finally achieved the 8 hour working day. the first American homosexual-rights organization was founded here. the first publication for gays, Friendship and Freedom, was produced here. and of course, from here, we elected the first black president of the United States of America. Chicago was a great city. but unfortunately, it is not so good lately. the prison system is mistructured with people having mental health problems, and the public schools are brutally shut down in favor of charter schools. the poor become poorer, and the rich become richer. it is time for us to take over Chicago again, awaken the spirit of dream and action, create miracles, and make people believe in their own power again!
I have a proposal! Chicago is known as the windy city and the extremely cold winter has always being a low-point for whoever wants to live here. if we can reshape the Chicago landscape, changing it from a flatland into a basin, it can increase the average temperature by 10 degrees. this 10 degrees means 80% less extreme weather and 70% less energy use on heating. is that possible? of course! 150 years ago, people here could make the entire city higher. we sure can make the entire suburb higher too. it just requires some simple creativity and artistic strategies.
Here is the plan! Chicago is a metropolis creating hundreds of tons of trash everyday. if we landfill the trash in suburb areas around, the entire land elevation will be lifted up within ten years, and by creating this wall of mountains around the city, a warm nest will be built up, resisting the bitter coldness from the north, but still enjoy the warmth and pleasure from the lake. taking over the suburbs, making them trash mountains also means bring back to the city all the white people with money and some of those without much money who moved out of the city since the blockbusting 1960s. also, increasing the temperature means the city will be a more suitable for people to live. during the summer, it will be even as warm as California. people will move to Chicago. and by the increase of population, more jobs will be created, more taxes will be collected. there could even be a chance to fill up that gigantic social security fund hole! everybody wins!
So what can we do? we just need to fill up our landfill trash bins! by simply moving the merchandise from retail stores, such as Target and CVS, into fashionable trash bins, we will all make an impact that can be deeply appreciated in the greater plan! remember, it is the true uniting of people that made up Chicago’s history, it will only be us truly uniting again, making the city a better city, making the country a better country and making our life a better life. thank you!

free yourself from the dead lock of capitalism.
how to hunt a pigeon.
hunting pigeons doesn’t require an eagle’s strength. it is actually very easy. here is a way
method suitable for all ages and all body shapes, and all the material required can be
found in the city.
Step #1:# find a big trash bag.
there are tens of thousands of trash bins around Chicago, from the lake shore to the inner
the best place to find a suitable trash bag is by the lake shore. every morning,
city puts a fresh new trash bagss in the bins, and since the tourists haven’t arrived yet,.
there are much higher chances for finding a perfect trash bag. the best type is anthose
industrial size (55 gallon+) black trash bags but some transparent or white ones can do the
thing toobe useful too. test ittest the bag with your hands, trying to tear it apart., if it gives
You a nice strong resistance,. it is the bag are looking for.
step #2:# cut the bag open.
first ,lay the bag flat first, in the shape of a rectangle, just like the original
bag. find the side lines, cut the bag open into two pieces from there. (pic fig. 1)
step #3:# tie a weight on each of the four corners of the bag.
find some bricks, rocks or bottles., the best weight should be a little bit heavier than the
itself. put the weight in the corner of the bag. fold it into the bag. (fig.pic 2)
step #4:# a practice throw practice.
hold the bag like as in (pic fig. 3). stand toin the side of the pigeon group. (fig.pic 4).
throw the bag in a counterclockwise wise w-directionay. (fig.pic 5). it might
rough on your first try, but you will catch up very quickly. Also, the bigger
group is, the better chance you have.
step #5:# select two pigeons
a pigeon equals 1000 calories. the recommended calories an American should adult
consume every day is 2000. two pigeons will be able to meet up your daily need. set the
rest free for the future.
step #1:# smash the pigeon
there are several ways to kill the pigeon after you catch it. smashing it at the head
a the quickest way. the easiest way to smash the pigeon is to use the weight tied at
corner of your bag. give the pigeon a quick smash on the head. the bird is then ready to
step #2:# find a knife
there are several materials around the city that can be used as a gutting knife (pic fig. 6).
a glass bottle can be found easily found around the following club districts. (fig.pic 7).
a razor fence can be found around the following factory areas. (fig.pic 8), or, for more
advanced skill levels you can make your own rock knife!
step #3:# find a working place
find a place with running water to gut your pigeon. the bathroom of a shopping mall, a
grocery store or even a coffee shop can do the trick. because the gutting process can be
little bit bloody,.
bathroom where you can lock your door will be ideal. the following
places are the suggesting working places:. (family bathroom from Ttarget,
step #4:# gut your bird
cut the throat open and give a nice quick slide from the annal anus up to the chest. (fig. pic 8).
pull out all the guts in side and give the pigeon a nice wash.
step #5:# pull off the feathers
there are two ways to get rid of the feathers. A. keep the hot water running,. and it
easy for you to pulling off the feathers. B. cover the bird with mud. after cooking,. the
feathers will come off with the mud.
step #1:# find seasoning
salt and pepper can be found at restaurants with self- service bars. the following are some
suggesting places. (fig.pic 9).
step #2:# build up a stove
there are hundreds of ways to build a stove. and since cooking will create a lot of smoke,.
finding a rural place to do it will be ideal. the following are some beaches in Chicago that
may be ideal for cooking .(fig.pic 10). here is a suggested way to build a stove. (fig.pic
11. the key is keep the air flow inside but not too much. a good outside stove outside

Wax people were first found in North Vietnam around 1955, when the country was under a series of crisis. the new government tried to push forward a new type of currency, but hit strong resistance in the North. they found out the North functioned under a native exchange system. a type of amber was used as money there. this huge possession of amber led to an investigation and soon uncovered the truth. the amber was actually made by people from their own body wax, and this family was known as wax people after.
Wax people could produce tremendous amount of body wax, which were usually in the form of ear wax and booger. for normal people, ear wax and boogers are part of the body’s defense system. they wrap invading dust and bacteria and also assist in cleaning and lubricating inside the ear and nose canals. but wax people could produce enough body wax to wrap insects the size of dragonflies. the after product looked exactly like amber.
It is known that all the wax people were killed under the authority oppression. few people still believe some wax people fled since they were really hard to tell by appearance.
>>A story with basic Acting skills.
[instruction: read this story with megaphone, and try not look at the other two. ]
A man, named EarthRooty Zhao lives in middle region of China.
But actually the name, EarthRooty Zhao, is a traditional one from southern region.
Traditional means, in southern region, there might be 9 out of 10 male natives have the name EarthRooty Zhao. And mostly, people named EarthRooty Zhao tend to love bamboo like there is no tomorrow. They sleep bamboo beds, live bamboo houses, eat bamboo sticks, drink bamboo juice. their life are so orientated by the bamboo addiction, even their speech are broken into sections, just like bamboo nodes.
there are so many pauses in their speech! Most of the pauses are long enough for photosynthesis, and photosynthesis makes sugar. Sugar makes their talk really sweet.
Talking sweet could give one fortune and love. but talking sweet too much could end badly. too much talking means too much sugar. When sugar mixes with saliva, it will become really sticky. If it is too sticky, people can not open their mouth anymore. So, every new year in that southern region, people have a traditional festival of breaking their mouths open, which is also a celebration of the ability of speech and the freedom of speech, again. The parents break open the mouths of kids. The kids break open the mouths of grandpapa and grandmama.
Traditionally, they will throw away the knock off sugar-saliva mixture into the river. The mixture decay into white sugar paste. sometimes, these sugar paste will trap fish inside, like some gigantic white ambers.
Every year, people all over the world come to southern region just to laugh at this tradition.
But if they laugh too much, their mouth will be sticky too. This makes people question the theory of photosynthesis (because the bamboo addiction makes people's speech have too many pauses which give space for photosynthesis). Maybe it is not about the bamboo eating tradition, but there are actually transparent bamboos floating along the wind.

A man, named EarthRooty Zhao lives in middle region of China.
People live in middle region love wheat flour. They spend nine months of a year grow wheat all over the region. They spend the rest three months make the wheat into white flour. They eat hundreds of kinds of flour food. They even build their house with dough.
[acting like you are really surprised]
There are many pros of building house with doughs, like dough house means snack house. people can just scratch some dough off the wall to enjoy some carb any time they like. also, the dough house can decorate itself. during rainy days, it will just growing nice green mold. however, too much flour can cause some serious problem. Most people from the middle region have white dough like kidney stones because they eat too much white flour products. And most of them have white lungs because they inhale too much white flour. They have constipation and shit white too. So public bathrooms from middle region look like plaster factory.
A man, EarthRooty Zhao looks just like the natives and shits white too. but his shit looks like white lady figures, very different from the wiggly ones from the natives. it might be another evident, other than his name, to prove that he originally came from the southern region, because the southern people's bamboo loving gene, their body contains a lot of fiber.
There is another moment makes him different.
[acting like you are really surprised again]
1975, a big flood crashed the middle region. but EarthRooty Zhao survived. EarthRooty Zhao couldn't swim, but somehow he was able to float above the flood, just like a bamboo stick.
EarthRooty Zhao's memories of flood have almost faded completely after all these years. only a few scenes he can still remember. He remember, after the flood, he saw a lot of white octopuses on the ground. or maybe they were octopus-ish thing but actually made by the wiggly white shit and kidney stones from the people in middle region. EarthRooty Zhao had a really sad moment after he realize none of these octopuses were from him. they abandoned him, somehow.

[get the megaphone from number two when he/she finish reading]
A long long time ago, there was another big flood on Earth.
Someone asked sir Noah to build a big boat and put every living kind inside, so when the flood came, they could float together. Noah didn’t have a lot of time to build the boat, and the big boat cost so much material, so that boat was probably made from bamboo, since bamboo could grow so fast. Noah would be able to grow his material in one region instead of traveling around to get more wood. But no matter how big this boat was, it was still very limited. So maybe there is another story.
The boat story is named ark. The other story is probably named oc.
In the story oc, someone found out if they stuffed an octopus in their mouth, land animals could breath through it underwater. Because of this story, the octopus has a big balloon-looking head. Also because of this story, the octopus was named oc-topus.
In this story, octopus and bamboo are both strategies. But they are actually more chance than strategy. Because when they first came to the world, they didn’t necessarily know they would succeed. For example, if Noah’s ark contained too many pandas, pandas would eat the ark till it was broken and fail the mission. For example, if octopus suddenly could not help land animals to breathe underwater, it would fail the mission, too. Actually, the mission itself is a chance, too, because when the mission first came to the world, it could be a success or a mess or something not success and not mess. So if we can describe the world as a pile of missions, the world itself becomes chance, too. In this sense, the world, octopus and bamboo, don’t actually have enough differences.
