1up Escalation

Let’s use a role-playing scenario to demonstrate the escalation of a 1up. Needless to say, this is just a role-playing exercise, so don’t imagine that I see you as my adversary in any way, shape or form. But, for a moment, let’s pretend that I’m speaking to an opponent, and that we are engaged in the Ego Loop contest. And let’s really ramp it up by making it a Mega contest with some odd Highly Sensitive Mind related context to top it off.

Here’s how it would play out before I broke my old habits:

An Unholy 1up Fomenting in the Background

After getting slapped with an Almighty 1down, I had to step back and take things seriously by nurturing my return 1up into existence over a longer timeframe. In doing so, it became much stronger.

I will pretend I don’t care after getting smacked down off the podium. But the reality is, in absolute humiliation and from a terrible place of weakness, especially after being doped up in a really bad way, I’ll run off with my tail in between my legs. I’ll retreat and lay dormant in a cave for what feels like forever.

But then (or inevitably after a mystical dose of something even stranger inside this world of hurt) I will super-reinforce myself, come back, and serve out a Super 1up in the next round. Even if it takes ten years or more to build it up, please know, I’ll always find my way again. And when I do, I’ll have something unbreakable for you. A much bigger and stronger 1.

You see, while I was in my corner all curled up in a ball (the place I learnt my best tricks), I bumped into this missing piece of the food chain you must have overlooked earlier. Something I’m sure you’ll find hard to swallow today.

So, after you landed on target, destroying me and making me into an even bigger fool than I was while I tried to handle all the hidden leverage that conveniently no one else knew, it’s now my turn, and I’ve been waiting a long, long time…

Upon my hunt for something stronger that definitely won’t break as easily, I’ll also pick the perfect moment to return fire with an unstoppable kiss of 1up death just for you. Not only that, but I’ll happily blow this kiss once the wind is very much behind me, so you can see that nature is cearly on my side right before your demise.

I heard that Affirmations are powerful. So as a daily ritual for years, I’ve been begging the Universe to allow me this one opportunity for Vengeance and Territory, to gain back my 1.

Now it’s time to supercharge my 1up by adding even more colour, texture and body:

Virgonian Order

With absolutely no hope of turning my life around and getting back on my feet, I gave my attention to the skies for once. I ended up pleading with the stars for any help and salvation they could offer. Slowly (VERY slowy), but surely, an energy heeded the call. At first there was strange back and forth discreet messaging between us to kickstart our connection. But after a while, and through a terrible awakening process (the best kind), I was eventually revitalitised and given new strength and power to unleash on the world.

Therefore, believe me when I say I’ll utilise my 1down grudge/scar/trauma to now work with a universal cry for quality-control so that I maximise potential on this planet, by optimising this planet, while also being rewarded for it in this lifetime. Because that’s what happens when problems are left unresolved, hoping they disappear quietly, all buried deep in one-sided paperwork that will soon be overhauled with the help of the stars. There comes a silent but inevitable takeover from the Virgo Powerhouse with brand new paperwork and Law.

In case you didn’t know, by leaving someone of this nature (yours truly) pickling and conjuring in darkness, for far too long, it gives him time to plan all sorts of things with his new help. This includes the greater picture, stronger breed and social order, etc. You see, during his time in the 1down-cave, he learned a good thing or two. One of them was that if Humanity continues to bank on ignorance, the Universe will seek out a new life mitigator, whether Humanity likes it or not. And this new mitigater has been silently collecting credits through a fresh (and tactical) approach to life.

As an added 1up Bonus, the Universe will allow cause and effect to now come back and bite his opponent. 🦈

Unless however, the only thing that might prevent the situation from turning into total toxic one-upmanship, is that I pull another one of these stupid white, fluffy rabbits from this merciful non-binary hat that keeps popping up in my mind, and I simply evict you and your line FROM the deed to the house. Rather than I annihilate everyone from afar with a subsonic 1up which was the plan all along.

Mitigating up close is far too complicated in today’s world as we all know. From a place of chaos, one learns how to craft their way around conventions to achieve even greater results.

A Message to My Adversaries

“The keys to this house were never yours from the beginning, and they will be in my hands soon.”

Need I remind you of the cluster AND supercluster that our galaxy pays the rent to? Or do you still not know whose neck of the neighbourhood we all live in?

Yet in the off-chance, if I decide to throw you a line, a reprieve in a best-case scenario, you shouldn’t mistake any kindness for weakness. What was dealt my way, I’ll still hand back on a silver platter, but maybe only enough of it so it doesn’t come back to bite me again in future. This is why I absolutely love collecting these credits (for later use). If I have learned anything along the way, it’s how our Universe operates with Give and Take. And fortunately for me, it’s almost my turn to Take.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve just entered into toxic one-upmanship territory. It’s every man for himself!

Never Leave a Virgo Pickling for Too Long

A major pickle

Tell me, how do you like the new life map now, huh?

How do you find the longer-lasting sour taste of uncertainty now that a spanner got thrown into the conventional works?

Also, can you feel your heart jumping faster than usual, along with shortness of breath knowing that time is no longer on your side?

Do you feel a tightness around your neck also knowing that a surprise can jump out at any moment, and your system might not be there for you?

Then please (all of you in my little black book), take some extra time to really enjoy these next few uncertain years…

Therefore (anyone on my radar who chose not to come back to the table in a civil manner), soon, I will drag you back whether you like it or not. Except on this occasion, it’ll be YOU on the other end plagued by anxiety and uncertainty.

I will reclaim my invisible and short-lived trophy (while under the impression that it’s unbreakable) since that is what a zero does!
