Can a Transformers’ film based on just the machines exist? I believe it is possible. The origin of the robots in disguise must adjust for the film world but, a very different film can happen.

I see these Michael Bay films and commend what they represent. The films are brave, creative, and breakdown the walls, with every technology opportunity.These movies are also one man’s vision of what a Transformers’ movies can achieve.

If you visit a site like Rotten Tomatoes, at http://www.rottentomatoes.com/, look up the first Transformer’s film, and at the ratings’ differences between the audience and the most popular critics. Their views are very different. When you see the disparity between audience members’ reviews, there is even more diversity. Moviegoers will have different opinions. It does continue a tradition.

This show thrives today as it did many years ago. This program continues to change and adapt for children and adults. The Transformers had a strong animated television program, in the past, and now presents a lighter show to entertain today’s generations.

In my personal belief, a different kind of cinematic experience can make the Transformers’ movies closer to their past-animated counterparts. It would be a different kind of movie, but a blockbuster.

The key is the direction to take with the new film, or films. In the end, like a Johnny Five, from the movie Short Circuit, or Chappie, from the movie Chappie, we all have to believe a robot exist that has emotion, personality, and purpose. They can advance into the future and a new existence.

Before I continue, what brought this on? Literally, the other day, I watched a show from 1985. It was an episode from Season 2 of the Transformers animated show. In the episode Sea Change, Sea Spray and the Autobots visit an alien world and prevent the Decepticons from taking over the planet. In the episode, Sea Spray falls for an alien, but human-like woman. It is so clear that a mutual love develops and an opportunity arises for the Transformer to enter a special lagoon and transform into a combination of an organic creature and robot. It comes down to a way he and this alien female can be together. The episode was insane. The idea that you can build a film with just the machines taking the lead seems very possible if their intent is to grow and change in the audiences’ eyes.

Where do you start? The Transformers are alien. The story can start in California. Why not follow a Bumblebee, or Optimus Prime as they lead the Autobots after they have crashed to Earth? They explore the planet, and run into humans that they keep at a distance. The Transformers can be clumsy and not so careful. A small group of people realizes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and so many other hidden Autobots, that cannot transform yet, exist.

This becomes an issue and local risk, at first, and these people see the robots as aliens invading, and on, Earth. Their voices can go unheard.

The audience sees these hidden robots, Autobots, adapt, and take the form of vehicles and devices that hide within human society. Optimus Prime or Bumblebee can be individuals in search of finding security for their family, or the close-knit group, of Autobots. They can search for a way to construct a shuttle to get back to their planet, or consider simply finding their new lives on Earth. However, these Autobots forget why they crashed. They are just happy in their new existence, find solace in secrecy, and the possibility of getting home.

One day, on a road, an Optimus Prime or Bumblebee, embraces the beauty of Earth. They realize this planet could be a good place for them to live and a place where they can coexist with humanity. No Autobot understands how they crashed on Earth.

Suddenly, a flying vehicle takes an interest in them, in their automotive form. This other vehicle can get to close to, and eventually assault them. This starts a small altercation, the introduction of the Decepticons, and the reality of their crash to this planet. The Autobots meet the Decepticons and only transform into robots in a secret place away from human eyes. Optimus Prime, or Bumblebee, understands a battle in space, between the Autobots and Decepticons, led them all to crash to Earth together. This is an extension of a civil war on their common planet of Cybertron.

At this point, Autobots and Decepticons engage in small battles in the public eye and get the reaction of more people. Hearsay and the media expose the Transformers. A few people, a small group, that remembered the Transformers before, follow these battles and must decide between two sides.

Some see Megatron, and his Decepticons pillage human society of their natural energy. They can realize Transformers, overall, are not good. Others may not see all of these machines as threats. These people find the side they can best relate. The public as a whole warns the United States military. The humans, willing to listen, with the Autobots can discover the Decepticons are robbing the planet of its resources.

These people can use their knowledge of the planet and natural energy to help the Autobots battle the Decepticons, and prevent their thievery.

A terrified public can lead the United States military into a direct confrontation with all the Transformers. The Autobots and Decepticons engage in a massive battle in the eye of the public. There can be plenty of human casualties. The Autobots become aware of this and disengage from battle before it becomes too big, and ruthless. At this point, the United States military attacks everyone and drives all of these robots to retreat. The Autobots go into hiding in their discovered, damaged, ship. The Decepticons hide for the moment, but Megatron, leader of the Decepticons, devises a plan for the Decepticons to get what they want from humanity.

These Decepticons take the form of machines with war bound intentions. Megatron introduces himself to the United States military. Megatron paints a picture for them of the Autobots as nuisances from another planet. He determines the Decepticons are a group that advances societies wherever they travel. Megatron knows not to allow humans to get a hold of Transformer technology.

He does offer to help advance their weapons, in his way, come to the aid of only the United States military in any battle they need against other countries, and promises to advance the popular technology in the country.

In return, Megatron wants to be able to have access to various natural resource sites all over the planet. He wants to establish factories; poison to humans and that only Decepticons can use, to develop advances in human technology.

In reality, the factories are a front to steal resources from the planet. The Decepticons plan to work in the shadows and establish silent, backdoor treaties with other countries and societies in order to put humans against other humans with this new weapons’ technology.They want to take energy from planet Earth so they can return to Cybertron, and leave the planet Earth in ruins. The military, the government, and so many other countries strike a deal with the Decepticons and start this path to destruction. A Bumblebee, or Optimus Prime can see all these things happening, in the background, but realize that if the Autobots engage the Decepticons this can only lead to more human lives ending. Unaware of the Decpeticons final purpose, they take a passive stance and decide to wait to see if the Decepticons’ plans will cause real harm. They will only use brute force if it is necessary. The Autobots have a last-ditch plan to end the Decpticons before they can cause real harm.

This is how the film would end. Is it good? Eh.

There is one critical question though.

Would these Decepticons be evil?

Early on in this film, a narration explains different Transformer creators developed the Autobots and Decepticons as balance keepers of the universe. One unknown creator made a group of transforming robots with the purpose of bringing peace and balance wherever they travel. Another creator developed Decepticons to use force, by any means necessary, to establish a peaceful universe. This can have implications. The Decepticons creator developed machines that were too intelligent and powerful. These Decepticons try to kill their creator. This Decpeticon creator left his machines to survive on their own. He escaped, and looked for a way to destroy the Decepticons, Autobots, and possibly more. These same free Decepticons traveled and encountered other alien races in the universe. While friendly, at first, these other races turned against the Decepticons because of their power and intelligence.

These Decepticons, without any creator’s guidance, and only Megatron’s experience, grew cold. They came to believe that in the end life destroys itself. They believe all creations that come to life will destroy one another, based on their encounters with their creator and other species. Therefore, all life must die. They play the role of destroying life before it has a chance to go bad. This establishes peace. In the end, they know to destroy themselves, but not before they take out everything else.

I do not know if any of the above is good. I know I wanted something very different from a Transformers’ film. These robots in disguise can lead; truly have humanity, and true purpose.

It will be up on Amazon for free, for Mischief Night and for Halloween. A 2.99 story is now only 99 cents. New cover and the story has more flavor at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015AZMT6W?*Version*=1&*entries*=0. I previously wrote a piece on Amazon, at http://www.amazon.com/DWARF-COMPLETE-William-Chandler-Jr-ebook/dp/B010THPA1M/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1442154640&sr=1-1&keywords=Dwarf+Complete. However, this teen horror piece is a little different. It continues to change. Torture is torture really.

Orange Torture was always a story meant for Halloween. It involves kids, but more the whole notion of going out to trick or treat. Just what can happen if things aren’t so sweet? John, Fritz and Dana enjoy one last night of that free tiny Snickers, the surprise giant confectionery treat, and the other side of reality. Halloween is not always about treats. There are some tricks and some are of the nastiest kind. It is one night to remember. One person is going to get it. Orange Torture. Check it out today.

DWARF COMPLETE IS HERE and is 2.50!

A while back, I had written some stories about a being known in mythology to have been an artisan, smith, miner, and warrior, only, in most text. Though many tales exist about the Dwarf, for me, it was important to put a different spin on the character. You can always place the Dwarf in a dark time, or fantastic place to coexist in a purposeful adventure. In my case, I wish to use this character, as the main character, to set an example of the eternal order that must exist between good and evil, under different circumstances.

You could always put a Dwarf, the stager, on a quest, and in a battle with a vile dragon for his lost gold. It is possible to put, a rogue Dwarf against his own family lineage as he clashes to create his own dominant line. Dwarf Complete looks to set a different standard.

Dwarf Complete is in an alternate universe, starting in 2010. It follows his character, over a three-year period. Thirty-year-old Lawrence Dodgea gangland version of Robin Hood battles a corrupted, ever-changing existence.

His top place, as leader of a special gang, and lust for violence, gets him a special audience with the newest weapon from a special, new, law enforcement group, the Cavaliers. Lawrence’s first encounter with the diabolical machine snatches, and changes, his life, literally. He becomes the weapon, a realized legend, a Dwarf that fights evil, and can only battle this evil to an epic and monstrous conclusion

.

The question, in all of this, is can you accept the ending? The character Lawrence follows a path he should and enters situations that make his life beyond torturous. In the end, he makes a choice, and follows it to a major finale, but is it fair?
You can order Dwarf Complete, now for just 2.50, unless you have Kindle unlimited or use the other incentives,  at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B010THPA1M/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_YkkMvb1SCC8.  I cannot forget to acknowledge one of my inspirations, at Dark Chapter Press, at http://www.darkchapterpress.com/, for more great written content. Thank you, ahead of time, for your contributions.

Higgs Boson: The Controversy

by NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

I enjoyed writing this article eons ago. Check it out.

I watch a lot of Animal Planet. I ask you to bear with me. They have two kinds of shows on the channel. There is Finding Bigfoot, a program about four researchers discovering, through evidence, the existence of a new human-like animal in the world. There is also a program called River Monsters. It is a program where a man goes to different locations around the world to define what people, local to that area, consider monsters.

He, however, uncovers local wildlife that usually plays the part of the monster. The difference between the shows is in most cases, on River Monsters, people see the monster that causes the problem, usually an overgrown fish or even strange fish in that area. The researcher Jeremy Wade makes it a point to define his monsters, in almost every program.

On Finding Bigfoot, Bigfoot is still out there. I feel both of these shows are necessary.

This is how it all relates, in my eyes, to the discovery of the Higgs Boson particle, or element.

In an article, at CBS News, at http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-57574534/god-particle-why-the-higgs-boson-matters/, it talks about a very revolutionary idea that is in its early stages. In one corner, God has numbers of books written about him, her or it, and many spiritual followers. In another corner, a particle may exist that defines what God is and could forever change the understanding of spirituality and religion, in at least Catholicism, and Christianity.

Firstly, though, I want to know:

1) What is something that you to wish remain undiscovered?

2) What do you think about the discovery of the Higgs Boson?

Please comment below:

I would take Biology 101 in college. In that class, I would go over a chapter that would deal with the Big Bang Theory. The start of the explanation of the Big Bang Theory was very clear, from its complex stars to its quasars. The explanation would run into a problem, as the origin of the universe was not clear.

My teacher at the time would only define that start of the universe as “The Hand of God.” At the time, there was no clear definition of what element would start the universe. Years later, there is now a face to represent just what could be the start of the universe, The Higgs Boson.

This is what I understand the Higgs Boson to represent. I think it is a cool concept but I, as a Catholic, and Christian, feel concern for that concept, especially when its sole purpose may be to define God.

The Higgs Boson could lead to an understanding of how to measure, weigh and define God. It could become the evidence that defines whether God left his mark on this planet or if nature just left its mark. The Higgs Boson particle, or element, could lead humans to the discover how to create life, how to defeat death, how to stop aging or even how to control the universe and how to form it.

All of the above possibilities are extreme but very real subjects that may be part of the news, and history, years from now, if the Higgs Boson is what it claims. The reality is the Higgs Boson is a very exciting discovery.

Though as a Catholic, and Christian, I have a very real concern about someone defining the possible lack of existence of God. I feel it may not be true but it is, now, a very real possibility that has scary consequences.

Let us imagine if God is energy or concept that we can now control. The Big Bang Theory holds all the answers. What if creationism becomes just a concept taught in history classes?

What if people can burn bibles, as they become only relics of a once, world renown religion? Religion becomes a joke.

What if there were no more churches?

What if there were no more large structures to visit on Saturdays or Sundays for spiritual and social well being?

I know all of it seems extreme but it is a real possibility with the discovery of this Higgs Boson particle, or element. What happens to the concept of faith, religion, the idea of spirituality and all of the concepts that serve as the foundation of the United States of America?

As defining God becomes the focus of scientific effort, I have a real concern at just what these scientists will find.

I would ask scientist to bottle it up, whatever they find. People are extremely fallible. People can erupt over changes in older traditions, at times.

What is in man or woman’s mind that would make them think that just because they know the answer, to what they think is a problem, they should control it or have the right to shape it? The Higgs Boson could lead some person, or people, toward an opportunity. That opportunity is the right to shape the world, in the same way God in literature and reality, shapes the world.

It would be a man or woman defining what is and what is not to exist in this world. I feel this should not be the case. It would be the discovery of true power by a fallible person, or people. Who exactly would have the right to control that power? If you look at just the United States, and who has power and who does not, power can corrupt any person.

People are too different. Everyone has different opinions. Everyone has different agendas. I hope, unlike the people in Raiders of the Ark, these scientists leave the mystery in its box. Throw away the key, no need to have their faces melt off. The world has its Finding Bigfoots and River Monsters for a reason. Let it all exist as it is. Let God sort it.

It Exist! Now What?(Boson Update 8/02/2013)


The Higgs Boson is here. What happens now? Well I will try as best as possible to explain what it is and what to expect. It seems the Higgs Boson is a small part of a much bigger picture, based on a theory of symmetry that determines space and time have extensions, other dimensions, we do not know, supersymmetry,

The Standard Model, a theory put in place in the early 1970s, explains the basic makeup of matter. It also explains how that matter interacts in particle physics. The theory has been through its test and proven correct in its use, thus far.

The Higgs Boson, the particle that acts on matter, has this purpose. All particles, in the universe, would pass through what known as the Higgs Field, and other fields. The Higgs Field exists in the universe to provide particles with different levels of mass.

The Higgs Boson seems like the particle, and the carrier, responsible for passing this mass to various particles in the universe. This is very good. It could go a long way in explaining a concept like the Big Bang Theory but the question is, still, would the world be ready to leave mystery in the past?

Would you be content in a world with no mystery?
