  1. Fantasy

    Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot element, theme, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genres of science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three, all of which are subgenres of speculative fiction. In popular culture, the fantasy genre is predominantly of the medievalist form, especially since the worldwide success of The Lord of the Rings and related books by J. R. R. Tolkien. In its broadest sense, however, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, filmmakers, and musicians, from ancient myths and legends to many recent works embraced by a wide audience today. Fantasy is a vibrant area of academic study in a number of disciplines. Work in this area ranges widely, from the structuralist theory of Tzvetan Todorov, which emphasizes the fantastic as a liminal space, to work on the connections between medievalism and popular culture.

Look at these two smiling freaks, they are your laziness and fear, they are the sixes of your egoism, while egoism submits to self-deception. Because of them, you are at the bottom of your life.

Kill them because only they pull you to the bottom. 17.

Here people can see the universe, inside a black hole in the space of passions. Chronosphere of a quantum leap of feelings from all lives. As if inside reincarnation and you see everything that was, all that you have is the past. The range of feelings that you have felt in all your lives. A palette of memories. It takes you to another universe. Into a new life. Bright colors of nostalgia, this is the wealth of the past. Warm tones where we felt good and cold tones where we felt bad. All this becomes unimportant when you become a spectator. Art gallery of all portraits of personalities with high acting. Life is a masterpiece when there are relatives. Eternity is romance. Through the time and space of the timing of life, we rush forward. 2. Natural selection and evolution by typing, and by pull. Love couples are formed by typing, success and good luck are obtained by typing. 3. 1. Genetics is the butcher of fate, everything here consists of errors. Time forms in a person a masterpiece of the quantum deformation of reality. 2. Art is the empathy of associations. 3. Real life is silence without thoughts, without dreams, without illusions. This is existence in reality. 4. Life is a meditation of romance, and a meditation of reality. Quantum vision through the thickness of the times of paradoxical lies. 5. Nature is the spiritual aesthetics of awareness. 3. 1. We live in an existential abstraction, a paradoxical illusion. The world is the result of the ugly imagination of selfishness. 2. Synesthesia of catharsis, forms the empathy of associations. It distorts reality and forms a simulacrum of reality, forms a gene transmutation of the chimera of thinking. 3. Replicants of our world, they think literally. 4. Lyrical jazz of life, pierces infinity, the world of people is the existential bottom of illusions, the utopia of hedonism of desires and temptations, like a meat grinder of thoughts, it destroys you so that you plunge into oblivion of emptiness.

Loving a mercantile woman is like loving a matrix machine. A machine cannot love only to consume. 2. We expect something from life, looking like a spectator like a prisoner. We are serving our term. Our consciousness is aging, and the subconscious is becoming richer in paradoxes. What life consists of soft notes or rough notes. It is sensual tenderness in hope. Life is an expectation of the realization of meaning in life. We peer into the world in which we build ourselves gigantic problems out of lies. We shape the world from lies. This is our main building material. Consciousness pierces the infinity of nonsense in reincarnation. The darkness of the emptiness of the past as a great canalization of the paradoxes of the subconscious. We mostly act unconsciously. 1. Form yourself Body like children's plasticine, become such a man so that girls and women have a natural fire between their legs, so that trousers are on fire with excitement. The same applies to girls, the more your shape, that is, the bait you are more likely to get married. 2. Cybernetics of etiquette The danger is that the robotization of the formal hypocrisy of the selfish world is developing. The cybernetics of selfish etiquette, where one will unlearn compassion and even cry, everyone will only smile politely while committing an unconscious sin that is the result of hopeless despair. 3. Around you there are a lot of ironic gifts in which there may be a hypocritical sarcasm of approval. Gifts of Fate and they all tick and only a few of them will not explode and cripple you. Be sure to save those that talk about your family and children. 4. Wild anger enveloped in chains of patience, red-hot with the fire of rage. Abstinence is the highest human feeling. You must live a life without anger, shackling him in the arms of nobility and love, and then the hellish flame of anger will turn into a steel of peace. Anger is painful because it is a delusion devoid of any sense of justice, it does not give you respect or a sense of satisfaction from justice, only a contemptible shame in front of higher powers. Anger is an unnecessary feeling of the mind and heart, it is a fire that burns the soul and defiles memory. Anger is the product of new grievances, dramas, and tragedies. Live only one life without anger, and the vicious circle of self-deception, the wheel of samsara and reincarnation of déjà vu, the whole life as an inadequate sleep will stop, and you will wake up in paradise, the same life will stop repeating itself. 5. Cyber ​​Animatronics In all this cyber illusion of the human world, the animatronic work ethic needs to be lubricated with the machine oil of the humanity of empathy. 1.

The true self is a lonely lamp post in the middle of emptiness, illuminating the space of the true one. 3. 1. Whatever happens, loyalty is strengthened when I see you. Love deepens from the thought of you, I love you powerfully, you are an erotic dope, love hypnosis, you are a flying high, I am fried with passion for you. Roughly exciting. Extremely exciting. Quivering delight. I am drawn to an instinctive, vicious passion. I am drawn to you even without libido and testosterone. You are a vital part of life, your image immerses you in an erotic, fabulous fantasy. 2. We form our DNA, the DNA of our future with the help of chemistry and GMOs. From this, children are more likely to get sick. But what if human DNA is completely chemically painful. What if this is the end of civilization. And people put their dirty greedy hands there that they themselves do not fully understand. Genetics will either destroy us or break all DNA codes and we will move to a new level of physiology and consciousness. Life experiences shape DNA. We shape ourselves and our own future. A quantum leap of awareness in a change in consciousness, space and time. New DNA strands as new levels of awareness and can program consciousness. Divine power that from the greed of some people can destroy us. 3. A closed person is like a toy that you pull by the string and she says the same negative phrases. This is an emaciated person. 4. Life is like a ship and there is a holiday or a storm in it. And the sea as an element of fate. The sails of the higher powers lead the ship and the wind of change can sometimes change its course. The compass of awareness guides the circular earth of reincarnation. Life is the romance of travel and knowledge of the world. The family is the crew of the ship. Which has its own holds of secrets. The course of insight leads only forward through life. 5. Expression and sounding of reality as a rupture of the dimension of consciousness. The insight of consciousness creates a gap in the dimension. The darkness dissipates and we see a mystical truth. 6. Vices are pretenses of instincts. People do not understand what they are doing - this is vicious infantilism, self-doubt. 7. Toys of the subconscious that are the basis of the paradoxical game of the illusion of life. 8. The world is a toilet bowl where everyone shits with their egoism, and someone from above presses the drain button around the clock, and flushes a huge number of people into the toilet, those who cannot be drained will survive.

Love deepens from the thought of you, I love you powerfully, you are an erotic dope, love hypnosis, you are a flying high, I am fried with passion for you. Roughly exciting. Extremely exciting. Quivering delight. I am drawn to an instinctive, vicious passion. I am drawn to you even without libido and testosterone. You are a vital part of life, your image immerses you in an erotic, fabulous fantasy. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
