you don't need to know any of this to enjoy my comic, but if you want to understand it which in a way might help you all understand yourselves, then take a look a this knowledge is fun.
in my comic there will be some intense moments of confusion if you don't understand these terms or overall what this story is about so to help summarize what the series is about as well as some terms vocabulary and visual effects that i will use to display a ton of things to help you visualize how to view a situation.
the NeXtGen series...
is about the live's of multiple individuals through the eye's of certain individuals taking place in 2050's through 2070's, this city is in controversial turmoil of the three fractions that each disagree with each others motives of style ending up plunging them into world war 3. throughout the series multiple characters lives will be changed by the interactions of entities, abnormalities, aberrations and apparitions and the way these's characters deal with it through character development solving their own convictions or conflicts.
this comic is in not way light hearted even though it appears that way. this series includes blood,suggestive themes(not always fanservice),drug usage, moral disagreements, in overall messed of convictions, just think evagelion series.
things to know before reading my comic like....
THE MULTIPLE WORLD THEORY or MUT<------------------------HUGE, VERY IMPORTANT TO READ ABOUT.
MWT(multiple world theory)- ex: This theory states that there are infinite number of universes, collectively known as the "multiverse". If a person is about to travel back in time, he will create his own parallel universe upon arrival in the past. So if he kills "his" grandfather, a paradox would not occur because the grandfather that he has killed is not his own grandfather from the universe from which he came, but that of the version of himself in the universe he is now in.
if i were to make a decision then there is a universe where i did not make that decision and that world thus has it's own amount of decisions that continue to make different universes in that universe.
BUT(haha)(branching universe theory)- This theory says that to travel back in time would cause time to branch. This is the theory used in the film series "Back to the Future", where the characters going back in time causes the timeline to branch as the characters in the past are inspired by the time travellers to make different choices than they would have done without their influence and prior knowledge, that change the future from the perspective of the time travellers. Another example is the Doctor Who episode "Turn Left", where the simple choice of which way a character turns at a road junction has drastically different outcomes, as turning in one direction prevents them from meeting up with the Doctor and influencing his decisions and actions.
TIMELINE CORRUPTION HYPOTHESIS- Another idea is that any change in the timeline, even without personal interaction, while allowable, would cause a "butterfly effect" in the timeline. All history after the time traveler visited would be affected by minute changes the traveler had made in the past, and the history, depending on how severe the time traveller's actions were, would sooner or later be completely changed.
CHOICE TIMELINE HYPOTHESIS- In the choice timeline hypothesis, history changes the instant the time traveler decides to travel back in time, thereby rendering his actions in that regard pre-destined.
IF i go back in time to prevent something that will result in that very incident happening BECAUSE i decided to go back in time to prevent it.
TEMPORAL MERGING HYPOTHESIS- This is the opposite of the multiple universes hypothesis, in that each action committed in time travel actually overlaps one reality with another. For instance, if a time traveler were to meet his double from another time, the double would merge with the time traveler, making the traveler a part of the time he is visiting. The same would hold true for events. Two events would merge into the nearest event which does not produce a paradox (a dead grandfather in one universe but not in another would either create a dead grandfather in both universes, but alter the person's heritage so as to allow this, merge both timelines so that the person would fade from all timelines upon return, or produce a mean between life and death such as a coma).
the meaning of these words/terms
illusion- a thing that is or is likely to be wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses or a false idea or belief.
delusion- an idiosyncratic belief or impression that is firmly maintained despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality or rational argument, typically a symptom of mental disorder.
"grandeur of delusion"- are principally a subtype of delusional disorder that occurs in patients suffering from a wide range of mental illnesses, including two-thirds of patients in manic state of bipolar disorder, half of those with schizophrenia and a substantial portion of those with substance abuse disorders. GDs are characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent, wealthy, or otherwise very powerful. The delusions are generally fantastic and typically have a supernatural, science-fictional, or religious theme. There is a relative lack of research into GD, in comparison to persecutory delusions and auditory hallucinations. About 10% of healthy people experience grandiose thoughts but do not meet full criteria for a diagnosis of GD.
"ivory tower"- The term ivory tower originates in the Biblical Song of Solomon (7:4) and was later used as an epithet for Mary. From the 19th century, it has been used to designate a world or atmosphere where intellectuals engage in pursuits that are disconnected from the practical concerns of everyday life. It usually carries pejorative connotations of a willful disconnect from the everyday world: esoteric, over-specialized, or even useless research, and academic elitism. In American English usage it is also used as shorthand for academia or the university, particularly departments of the humanities and the social sciences.
entities- a thing with distinct and independent existence.
abnormalities- an abnormal feature, characteristic, or occurrence, typically in a medical context(abnormal-deviating from what is normal or usual, typically in a way that is undesirable or worrying.)
aberrations- a departure from what is normal, usual, or expected, typically one that is unwelcome.
apparitions- the appearance of something remarkable or unexpected, typically an image of this type.
"hero complex"- The hero syndrome is a phenomenon affecting people who seek heroism or recognition, usually by creating a desperate situation which they can resolve. This can include unlawful acts, such as arson. The phenomenon has been noted to affect civil servants, such as firefighters, nurses, police officers, programmers, and security guards. Acts linked with the hero syndrome should not be confused with acts of malicious intent, such as revenge on the part of a suspended firefighter or an insatiable level of excitement, as was found in a federal study of more than 75 firefighter arsonists. However, acts of the hero syndrome have been linked to previously failed heroism. The hero syndrome may also be a more general yearning for self-worth.
"god complex"- A god complex is an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. A person with a god complex may refuse to admit the possibility of their error or failure, even in the face of complex or intractable problems or difficult or impossible tasks, or may regard their personal opinions as unquestionably correct. The individual may disregard the rules of society and require special consideration or privileges.
God complex is not a clinical term or diagnosable disorder, and does not appear in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).(examples of god complex: Lelouch Lamperouge from code geass, Black start from soul eater, light yagami from death note)
The first person to use the term god-complex was Ernest Jones (1913-51). His description, at least in the contents page of Essays in Applied Psycho-Analysis, describes the god complex as belief that one is a god.
"messiah complex"- A messiah complex (also known as the Christ complex or savior complex) is a state of mind in which an individual holds a belief that they are, or are destined to become, a savior. The term "messiah complex" is not addressed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), but symptoms of the disorder closely resemble those found in individuals suffering from grandiose delusions (GD) or delusions of grandeur. This form of delusional belief is most often reported in patients suffering from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Little is known about the disorder, but it is believed that as many as 10% of the population may hold similar beliefs in one form or another, though not significant enough to warrant a diagnosis.
"narcissism"- excessive or erotic interest in oneself and one's physical appearance or extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.
God- God is often conceived as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith. The concept of God as described by theologians commonly includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), omnibenevolence (perfect goodness), divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence. In theism, God is the creator and sustainer of the universe, while in deism, God is the creator, but not the sustainer, of the universe. Monotheism is the belief in the existence of one God or in the oneness of God. In pantheism, God is the universe itself. In atheism, God is purported not to exist, while deemed unknown or unknowable within the context of agnosticism. God has also been conceived as being incorporeal (immaterial), a personal being, the source of all moral obligation, and the "greatest conceivable existent". Many notable medieval philosophers and modern philosophers have developed arguments for and against the existence of God.
"god"- the term used for something that is all powerful.
demi-god- A demigod (or demi-god) is a divine or supernatural being in classical mythology. The term has been used in various ways at different times and can refer to a figure who has attained divine status after death, a minor deity, or a mortal who is the offspring of a god and a human. in this case a demi god means to be godly but appear human.
conviction- a firmly held belief or opinion.
fear- Fear is an emotion induced by a threat perceived by living entities, which causes a change in brain and organ function and ultimately a change in behavior, such as running away, hiding or freezing from traumatic events. Fear may occur in response to a specific stimulus happening in the present, or to a future situation, which is perceived as risk to health or life, status, power, security, or in the case of humans wealth or anything held valuable. The fear response arises from the perception of danger leading to confrontation with or escape from/avoiding the threat (also known as the fight-or-flight response), which in extreme cases of fear (horror and terror) can be a freeze response or paralysis.
phobia- In clinical psychology, a phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational. In the event the phobia cannot be avoided entirely, the sufferer will endure the situation or object with marked distress and significant interference in social or occupational activities.
courage- the ability to do something that frightens one or quite similarly strength in the face of pain or grief.
manifest- clear or obvious to the eye or mind or display or show (a quality or feeling) by one's acts or appearance; demonstrate.
common mythology's/beliefs/life styles like....
the seven sins- The seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, is a classification of vices (part of Christian ethics) that has been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct Christians concerning fallen humanity's tendency to sin. In the currently recognized version, the sins are usually given as wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. Each is a form of Idolatry-of-Self wherein the subjective reigns over the objective.
the difference between magic and religion.
the names of those rejected or prone not to believe in entities(Atheist)
also i will use tons of visual effects that might confuse you first glance that are kinda meant to.
4th wall breaking stare- used to make the reader feel uneasy or in cases of redemption to case excitement.
panels in black- panels that are in black usually are for transitioning or filled with white text to show case abnormal thought or if the situation calls for it depression or the breaking point of a characters emotion.
abstract panel- use to portray or show the effect of a situation of a characters conscious. or the random show case of a white mythological being to show the apparition of it's appearance or influence on a character and their actions.
deja vu- the act of showing something more than once or actively mirroring something with another character also used to show case delusions or similarity.
constantly changing rooms- the room around a character will change rather subtly or noticeably to either show where they have been or to exaggerate thought in a delusion.
Black and white shading- two blandly distinguish who is alike or different or help focus of what is colored.
visual manifest- panels will almost seem to look exactly the same despite dialogue continuing as normal with each panel in between abstracting to previous memory or showcase of worry or fear.
surreal abstract replacement- characters may have seemed to switch places or appear in a worlds or area's that isn't normal or make rational sense, usually used to show case a delusion or exposition.
negative colors- use to show distortion and time warping, also will be used to indicate a abnormalities being destroyed by kevin's arm.
over exaggeration- to exaggerate imagination
composite colors- used to replace more violent things(such as over use of blood) or exaggerate delusions.
