The Brysen Mann Blog – September 27, 2020

Another reality check.

Like it or not, accept it or not…this world we occupy is but an atom in comparison to the cosmic world and we…represent nothing more than particles of sand in an endless desert.

Look at us, I mean take a hard look. What have we really accomplished in the big scheme of things? What has our existence really “contributed” to the big picture of life in this universe?

I should clarify…contributed in a positive way. I mean it’s easy to list all the f**ked up things we’ve done in and to our miniscule world, the place we call Earth.

Is there a future for us here? I think not. Do we even deserve another chance on another planet?

How many have we destroyed so far in our endless struggle to survive…for what purpose?

To prove what?

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – August 29, 2020

This planet is being inundated with pollution, storms, hunger, disease, civil unrest, the population continues to grow as resources continue to diminish…this does not sound even close to being a utopia world.

We humans are doing what we’ve always done…ravage the worlds we occupy as we’ve done so many times before.

An outlandish idea? Look at our history…truly take the time to analyze our roots…examine the “science” not the speculative theories of our beginnings.

Look at the obsessions of those in power, in control…why such investments on such a grandeur scale to explore for other worlds? Why not invest in this world and its people first to create that Garden of Eden; that supposed ideal world?

Because they know…it is a lost battle, always has been, always will be.

Interesting recent events…

New evidence places humans in North America at least thirty thousand years ago, fifteen thousand years earlier than previously thought…what does my “tale” state?

And now, more nations are involved with the exploration of Mars…the United Arab Emirates, China…why?

They all say it is relative to space exploration…critical to our future survival or…is it to reveal the hidden secrets of our past?

How will I be perceived as the writer of this story of “fiction” as more of the truth comes out?

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – June 14, 2020 

I ask questions in my blog…for my own self reflection as I write and for those who choose to read it.

Our world is in a stage of turmoil right now…it’s not the first time. We are being enlightened…will we follow a path of remedy and resolution?

If we heal the people, will we heal our planet?

Does one hold a greater priority than the other?

Can we co-exist with this orb we have named Earth?

Is this even possible?

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – May 8, 2020 

In this blog I could dwell more about conspiracy theories, our true origins and what we have done to this planet we call home.

I could expand more on the havoc we have created on this world and to ourselves.

I could continue my warnings that we are beyond the threshold of recovery.

Instead…I will sit back, observe, experience and absorb the current world-wide crisis and its impact.

Watch Nature make a stand…fight for what is his/hers, clearly shouting “Enough is enough!”

Payback can be a bitch.

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – April 8, 2020 

Here we are…another day, another blog.

I have always suggested that my tale of fiction is based on reality…the events from our past, what we are experiencing today (the planet’s payback?) and…what the future potentially has in store for us.

Every day…every week, more and more revelations, scientific and other, are being made that “suggest” what has been taught and promoted about our history for so many years is seriously flawed.

Do we really understand our roots?

It is all based on theory and conjuncture…on what makes ” sense” but what we really actually “know” as fact is, relatively little.

That is the fact.

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy.

The Brysen Mann Blog – March 3, 2020 

My blog…is it just, book promotion or something more?

Are these only ramblings of someone suggesting he’s the protagonist or is there truth buried among the pages of my novels?

Every year, month, day, hour…minute, new discoveries are being made about our history.

Later upon layer of misconceptions and false interpretations…conjectures are being peeled away to reveal …the true face of reality.

Can there be more to my …tale than simply fiction?

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy.

The Brysen Mann Blog – January 24, 2020

Look around at the world, demonstrations…chaos and fear has been emerging everywhere.

We have governments world-wide going to the extreme…trying to rein in what can’t be held back.

It is a time for the people, the true people…the ones that are making a choice and willing to take a stand.

But…is it too late?

Have we passed that threshold, the marker of not being able to undo what we have done…our inability to restore the harm we have inflicted on this planet we call home?

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy.

The Brysen Mann Blog – December 26, 2019

Why, for decades, is unlimited funding being spent exploring Mars? Why the obsession…why this specific planet, especially one so barren?

Is it really about a potential future colonization or learning about the beginnings of our galaxy, the creation of this universe or is it’s true mission a recovery one…for technology long lost, our own, buried somewhere below its surface.

It’s time to face reality…The Xeno Manifesto trilogy.

The Brysen Mann Blog – December 8, 2019

If you’re looking for a solution to the world’s problems, there isn’t one. It’s all about gearing up for survival mode.

It’s too late for change, we’ve past that threshold. You can only plan now as it’s not about making it through the next year or so, that’s easy…start thinking about making it to ten years from now.

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy is changing the face of reality and you’re not going to like how it looks.

The Brysen Mann Blog – November 10, 2019 

I’ve been described as an introvert and I even confirm that if someone asks, it’s simpler that way. It’s my way even though I am quite comfortable in any social situation, small or large, intimate or unfamiliar, blue collar, white collar, high-class, low-class and everything in between. I do what I need to do to get what I need.

Not that I care about other’s opinions on these matters but how do you tell someone you don’t want to get too close…you don’t want friends, that it’s your choice? I’m told I don’t smile enough…great, that’s the whole idea, avoid me as you should, I prefer it that way.

Do I intimidate people; definitely. Do I look at people? No, I look through people like they aren’t there, because they won’t be here for very long. I do one thing…look after myself, most of the time.

I did one thing for others, I told my tale, now…like most things in life, it’s your choice, read it and do something or…let it happen. Me…I believe there’s no stopping it.

The Brysen Mann Blog – October 6, 2019

Look at the world as a whole, examine its leadership and how well they work together for an unified cause…yea.

And you actually expect serious discussion and action to save this world we live on?

Like it or not, agree with it or not…face reality or not.

Your planet, your decisions, your consequences.

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – September 23, 2019

Have your protests, give your speeches, beat them with your signs…it isn’t going to make one bit of difference.

The Powers that be, the ones in control WILL NOT implement any positive climate change policies. They already have too much invested in getting off this world.

What, after spending trillions and decades, yes decades, on space exploration trying to find a new home for themselves rather than putting those funds to good use…like looking after the future of every living soul already here and those yet to arrive…they’re just going to say “whoops”, our bad?

I use the word “reality” a lot. Why? Because we are not in a “what if”, “could be” or “possibly” situation with what we have done to this place we call Earth.

This is a “get real”, face reality point and time…our planet is screwed!

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – August 24, 2019

Every day we inch a little closer, another step in the direction of our destruction. Some believe there is some hope and a chance to correct all the wrongs to this world we have done. Good for you, keep believing because Santa Claus and his eight reindeer along with the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are going to suddenly appear and save the day.

We’re being dumped by those at the top, the very ones that have initiated the endless search for exoplanets for decades now…to prove extraterrestrial life, good cover story.

Yet, there has been slips, a bit of the real agenda slipping out through various individuals. “In order to ensure our survival, we must become a multi-planetary species.” Must or are?

My tale contains a degree of truth and has an underlying message that parallels the reality of what the human race and this planet will ultimately face.

Read it for yourself…there isn’t much time.

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy

The Brysen Mann Blog – August 5, 2019

It’s difficult looking past the end of your lifetime…who gives a shit, right? If you’re five or fifty, things should still work out. After that, what does it matter?

Is that the wrong attitude to have about this world that we strive and struggle to survive on…probably not?

Is this planet screwed? Hell, yes! Take a look around. See what we’ve done to this place and to ourselves. And you wonder if a tale like mine can hold a grain of truth.

The concept that the Powers that be on this planet are planning an exodus to save their sorry asses and leave everyone else to face the consequences is not unrealistic.

Look where all the big dollars are going. The untold expenditures by every major country on space exploration rather than invest in the deteriorating conditions of this sphere.

Or is it considered a losing battle…and has been for quite some time?

The Xeno Manifesto trilogy will provide a glimpse of reality.

The Brysen Mann Blog – July 7, 2019

How many billions of dollars are being spent every year on space exploration? Why?

You would think those in control would want to look after those critical matters in their own back yard first…the back yard being this planet we call home and all those who live here.

The governments’ thinking changed back in the late 1940s, I shouldn’t have to explain to you what event created their new path of thought for life here.

The average person would call this a conspiracy theory…those calling the shots don’t give a rip because we are past the point of no return…they’re just rats lining up to get off a sinking ship.

Your decision, trust those at the top or…admit what you already fear and do something about it.

The Brysen Mann Blog – June 19, 2019

I’m not a religious man, never was and never pretended to be. I don’t believe a single entity created us all but I do believe I have a Power that watches over me…somehow. It provides me with what I need but I have to earn it, in my own unique way.

I also believe that when we die, we are not reincarnated but we do come back to the same body, same time, although the space might be different… call it an alternative existence. What is the end game? We keep returning until we live an exemplary life and then we move on to live in eternal peace in an ideal world with all those that have achieved this feat.

Problem is…I like being bad.

The Brysen Mann Blog – May 11, 2019

Is our fate predetermined? Do we actually have any control considering the population of this world?

We have the elite minority living a life with no concept of reality while the poor and down trodden majority, strive to eke out an existence, living meal to meal, day to day with no real hope for a future. Maybe they are the fortunate ones, not living with rose colored glasses on.

And “Mankind”, what a description considering there’s little in the way of compassion any more.

As we near the end, everyone is out for themselves…just rats on a sinking ship.

The Brysen Mann Blog – April 12, 2019

My grandpa use to say “Don’t mess with what you know nuthin about.” Me, I think some rules are meant to be broken…actually most are. The only rule I follow, is my gut. Whether most would consider that right, wrong or something in between…I really don’t care.

The world is screwed, humans and animal, birds and reptiles, insects…whatever category everything falls into and unfortunately I’m stuck in that mix. I know the reality and fight as I may, I’m not sure I can make one bit of difference but fuck it, I have to try…it all begins with my story, The Xeno Manifesto trilogy…read it if you dare.

The Brysen Mann Blog – March 14, 2019

There’s a subtle wave of electricity embedded in the air, nothing fatal, just enough to put you on edge. A chill runs down your back as you walk amongst that charged invisible atmosphere, it envelopes you, wrapping you up with fear. Don’t panic, just accept it…there’s no getting away from it now, it’s much too late.

You didn’t trust me, I’ve been warning you for so long and now, the countdown has begun…you only have so much time now, what will you do with that precious commodity? The Xeno Manifesto – Redemption will soon be here.

The Brysen Mann Blog – February 8, 2019

Recently, very recently actually, I had a book reviewer post “What is profoundly entertaining is how this writer with super clean clarity and remarkable skill, lays out a fiction tale so close to a possible truth”.

My first thoughts…how is it some individuals grasp it so quickly; perceive what has always been there to see? Does it need to be laid out in print before you’ll accept it, acknowledge it? And…is it a conspiracy it it’s a global united effort at the highest of levels?

Like I warned you, just sheep being led to the slaughter…The Xeno Manifesto trilogy.

The Brysen Mann Blog – January 3, 2019

Reality…what a mystical thing, you struggle every day never knowing what to believe anymore, can’t seem to trust anyone or anything. You may not want to admit this, but it’s true.

It’s because everyone is out for themselves, to a certain degree or another, regardless of their perceived intentions. This is something else you may not want to face as you stare back at yourself every day in the mirror…it’s difficult to admit you’re the same as everybody else.

You’re going to have to prepare yourself…another dose of reality is coming soon and you may not like what you discover…I know you won’t. The countdown is on for The Xeno Manifesto – Reclamation.

The Brysen Mann Blog – December 10, 2018

A higher and higher percentage of you are realizing how screwed this world is…but you have no idea how much. Those working behind the scenes, from the shadows, pulling the strings are working harder than they’ve ever had to before in trying to deflect the truth.

Examine it all, take the time to have a look, I mean a real…hard…look, to actually scrutinize what’s going on, what you’re being told, read between the lines and, if you do, it’s there in plain sight.

And when you do finally see it, what are you going to do…or are you just going to sit back and shake your head now that you’ve realized how gullible you’ve been this entire time?

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The Brysen Mann Blog – November 17, 2018

I kept away from this blog because I thought…maybe they were right, that it was my own self created paranoia and I was battling imaginary demons stemming from the weed that was not calming me or clearing my mind but altering it. I heard it all including my own self doubts.

I think part of me…wanted to believe their analysis of my sanity, my soul, my never ending search for salvation and redemption.

You know what I now say? Bullshit!! What was the matter with me, listening to them? I’m not keeping my mouth shut anymore. My tale is as real as it gets and don’t let them tell you otherwise.

She was right…she told me to continue and I’m going to.

Look out world cause here it comes…my blog carries on and so does my story with The Xeno Manifesto – Reclamation.

The Brysen Mann Blog – January 30, 2018

I have been holding myself back but I can’t any longer. I have to continue with my story. There is so much to be told and I’m not sure how long it will take or what obstacles I will face along the way.

Is there too much to my tale, maybe more than anyone is prepared to hear?

It isn’t like I have to be creative as it’s already in my head. I just need to put it on paper but…but nothing, it has to be done.

And so my saga continues.

The Brysen Mann Blog – January 10, 2018

A new year and my attempt to make some kind of resolution, any resolution that will improve my life…

I have to admit, I am cynical about this.

Try as I may, whatever game plan I come up with, Fate has its own idea about where I am suppose to go.

I do give 110% percent in my endeavors…my goals but without Fate’s cooperation, I get nowhere.

What is it about that?

I do know that something looks after me, Fate…my Power if you want to use that term. I am not a religious person by any means. I was at one time but those days are long gone.

Every time I get in a jam, something intervenes and bails me out. The key, I have learned the hard way, is to keep pushing forward. Never, ever giving up and…being patient. I can’t force anything thing. It has to come my way in its own time or its not destined to happen. It’s as simple as that.

I have learned long ago that the only thing I have control of is myself and with that realization, came a sense of calm.

I have no control over anyone else, well…I do but its usually without their cooperation and then, they ultimately pay the price.

Its going to be an interesting year.

The Brysen Mann Blog – December 26, 2017

I am struggling with how to put all of this in words without sounding like an SOB. Not that I really care.

After living so much of my life alone, I still have difficulty being with people. Not people in the general public
sense, but those that I feel I should strive to have a closer kinship with. Individuals that I describe as associates but most, I believe, take the next step and call friends.

For whatever reason, I can’t let anyone in. I am not “attracted” enough to give them that title. I mean attraction in terms of their intelligence, their drive, their personality not that mine is one that is to strive for. I can’t find something, anything in common but I have to admit, I don’t really try.

I guess part of it comes down to trust. That sacred believe that they, he, she has your back…always. It’s just not there. Not yet anyways. Will it ever be?

Even during this so-called Yuletide season, I have no desire, no mandatory need to be with others…it is just another day.

I have spent too many days, too many years of moving around and knowing…accepting the reality of life on this world and how it will all end.

I have taken the blinders off long ago and maybe that is why I keep everyone at a distance because, what is the point?

The Brysen Mann Blog – December 14, 2017

I had been asked recently “What would I have done differently in my life, what is your biggest regret?”

Had this question been proposed to me when I was younger, I am sure the response would have been lengthy.

Today, my answer is…nothing.

All of the obstacles in my life, the mistakes, the “regrets”, the paths I have chosen, right or wrong, have all made me the person I am today.

I like who and what I am. If solitude is my only companion, that’s okay because I have learned to be happy with my own company. I am content with what I have become.

Life…Fate…my Power has always looked after me BUT only when I have given 110% of myself. I expect nothing to me handed to me, everything has to be earned.

And I have paid the price along the way…there always is a price.

What the future will bring? I do not know, but I am prepared.

December 03, 2017

I talk of being tired and the only constant in my life has been change. I have said how I want to finally have some roots and have someplace to call home.

But is this realistic? Will it be detrimental to my survival?

I believe people are inherently nomadic, a trait from our roots. Being “stationary” is causing the human race to become complacent.

Is the goal…the dream of permanent dwellings and long-term careers essentially leading the population to ruin?
Change, struggle and hardship, ultimately make us better individuals.

People are fooling themselves with the perception of draping themselves into a life of stability, like an invisible security blanket, wrapping themselves so tightly in it, it will eventually smother them.

I know constant change, has been a critical element in making me the strong-willed, determined and focused person I am today.

Would I be some soft, bending, weak individual without it?

I believe I am better because of it but will my dream of settling down ultimately be my downfall?

What do you believe?

The Brysen Mann Blog – November 27, 2017

Frank, Zach and Roman are violent men, each with something to hide. They have kinship to the host of other characters in The Xeno Manifesto, the first of a trilogy. All these individuals have buried critical matters for so long, regardless of the collateral damage. But there has been a price, a heavy one; there’s always a toll to be paid.

These men live in a turbulent time, on such a crippled world…our world, and it seems so few care to make a change. But Frank has been enlightened. Is it soon enough or is too late to alter our path, the ruin and devastation too far gone?

I have been asked where I came up with the idea for my story. What do they mean my “story” because a comparison can be made to the reality of life, to the contents of The Xeno Manifesto.

Take a look at our past, a good, hard look at the inconsistencies of where and how we originated. Scrutinize what we have been taught, if taught is the right description to use. Or have we been indoctrinated?

Is there truth to fictional matters written ages ago, that were only penned to intimidate the uneducated that will now come to light with The Xeno Manifesto?

How uncanny and coincidental to my narrative is it that many experts believe humans were close to extinction, reduced to just ten thousand adults, in a time line so similar to my tale.  The suspected cause…was extensive, radical climate change on this planet.  In actuality, could it be that outside forces had a hand in it all?

Examine how we communicate, our languages, the tools of interaction for us intelligent beings. There is no explanation as to how they were derived. It has been proposed they evolved because we were living in a “complex and ever-changing world”. Good answer, but there is a better one in this book.

I am revealing ten (10) excerpts from The Xeno Manifesto on my website, prior to the scheduled release of The Xeno Manifesto in mid December of 2017. I will tweet these reveals @brysen_mann.

I will be blogging regularly so read, subscribe and/or comment.

Then, with The Xeno Manifesto’s release, we’ll be going on one wild ride!
