Some conspiracies are real.
After dedicating decades of his life to plans for a permanent world order, Mr. Burns finds himself ill, and near the end of his days.
In his eccentric train car office, the wealthy and powerful Mr. Burns is greeted by his new apprentice named Edgar. Before Edgar can meet the committee, Burns lights up a fat cigar and begins to explain pertinent details about The Faction and an elaborate plan called Tentacles.
Enter Mizuki, the Old Man's sultry Mistress. During her brief visit to the office, Edgar is smitten; and the visit is telling: the plot has something deeper it's hiding.
In the beginning, Tentacles sounds brilliant to Edgar. However, when Burns reaches a part of Phase Three in the discussion, Edgar isn't able to wrap his mind around it.
"Sir, surely they are fooling you with sleight of hand, illusions or something..."
Offended by Edgar's lack of trust, Mr. Burns chooses to assert his power to provide clear evidence. What he does will change Edgar's world forever.
Edgar also has a dark side, and even though he is young, he has ambition and know-how that might surpass that of Mr. Burns...
and change your world too.

For instance, while the author respects psychology, he dares to point out an interesting contradiction. In other sections, he addresses controlled chaos, rational emotions and more. Deep thinkers will likely take interest in the author's original theory called, "The Relevance Principle". This principle lays out certain types of people, and their relation to a fulfilled life.
Some readers may take offense to some of the ideas. Then, some will find unique angles on accepted societal norms and others may dismiss parts that seem familiar. In any case, those who need the direction will find it available here, if they choose to.
