What is going on with TV? Why is it blunts and then switch off and on? Who someone would have done it to toy with me? Well, thanks to a miracle that the TV comes back on, no more blunts and switch off. Hmm, I would like to have some biscuits, thought my head. Yummy, so lovely, so delicious. Oh you, Peace. Are you here to watch TV? Yeah, I thought so. Should I keep quiet like last time? Yes? I see. Enjoy watching TV what it offers. Sorry to interrupt your space-time, but I would like to say something since it’s thirty minutes, oh no words at all. Why are you here? Just watching TV or do you want me to say something even if you don’t speak? What would have I done if you stay quiet for as long as you need, but what about me? Why did you nod your head? Yes, I saw that you were nodding. Well, it’s another thirty minutes, no words at all. Why, Peace? Did you make a vow to silence your mouth? If you vow to silence your mouth, do you also vow to silence your hands? I know one of sign languages because Deaf is my friend. If he is here, I would welcome him to my heart, as I did to you and still do. What says you if I ask you to pronounce some words even if they are a few words. Just say it out of your hands. I know you can sign. Well, Peace, it has been one hour that we have not said anything, yes, no words at all. Would you agree with me if I say that you have been silent for two hours?


Oh, thanks Wisdom, for waking me up. Where is Peace?

He is not here.

Oh, yeah. What are you doing? Deaf? HOW-ARE-YOU? YOU WELL? GREAT.

I have something important to tell you.



You have kept our deal well. As I promise

Wisdom, it has been hours for you to return here with Provoke.

Provoke, can you go to this room over there? Thank you.

Marvellous, I have kept our deal, so should you do your part of our deal.

Be patient, Wisdom. Here a holy stone goes.

Thank you, Marvellous. Let’s go, Mr. Patience.

When I arrived in this room, it surely made me feel a true self, myself. What do you think of this room? It is old and ancient. No one knows this room but He gave me this room to look after. I have never left this room. Yes, I have not yet named this room, so should it be a good idea for me to call, this room?

Marvellous, I am sorry that my mind is not with you, because my mind scourges the Hypocrite. When I entered this room, my thoughts doom the Hypocrite’s infinity.

You have not changed, not one bit because you have kept your true self. However, do you know why you are here?

Yes, Wisdom told me everything.

You are a bond to him, do you know? Wisdom has kept you under him because without him you would not be this person you are today.

Whatever, don’t waste your time, Marvellous. Do the deal you had with Wisdom, you want me, right? You must hurry to do your part of Wisdom’s deal he had with you.

Well, Provoke. The deal I made with Wisdom was to see you with no further of the plan. I wanted to see you, in exchange, for my sake.

You are speaking like a riddle.

Well, Provoke. I ensure my words to make you understand because as long as you are understanding, you would not toy me with your words, but however, have you met the Hypocrite?

No, I have not.

Then why are you scourging the Hypocrite?

Because I am tired of the world that has taken parts of the Hypocrite.

Such as

Such as Charlatan, Sly, and many more.

Well, here is my deal I had with Wisdom, was to see you with no further of the plan, but I want you to take me with you for one month.

One month?

Yes, one month. I will inform Wisdom that my deal is to be with Provoke for one month.

Why, one month? Why not one day or one week?

Marvellous has to work and fulfill the duty she has from the order. Do you know Reduction?

Yes, I know him. He is full of nonsense.

Well, Reduction is deeming that he wants to end Deaf’s life.

What? He cannot do that. Because Deaf is my friend.

I heard that he stays with you until all is well and safe, right? Let me go with you for one month. You will learn a lot of things from my side, and who knows that Deaf will have lots of support from your side? Well, is it not your desire to support Deaf, is it?

I have always supported Deaf with all my soul because he is my faithful and quiet friend.

Then you tell Wisdom that Marvellous stays with you until one month is fulfilled. Is that good enough for you? Please remember that you do anything for Wisdom because he has done a lot for you, yes, really lots.

Well, I will do it. One month, only. Yes? Good.

Before we go to your house, let me tell you a bit about Charlatan who is staying with you, when he sees me, I want you to protect me from him.

Why should I protect you under my roof toward Charlatan?

I want you to protect me from Charlatan that being flirts with me. I have no desire to flirt with him. Please, Provoke, will you protect me from his flirtation? This is my deal I have made with you, protect me from Charlatan’s flirtation. I also heard that sometimes Sly visits Charlatan, so I can handle her lies because I can figure when she’s deceiving, but Charlatan, please will you do it for me, to protect me from his flirtation, yes, I repeat, will you protect me from Charlatan’s flirtation?

Okay, okay, okay, I hear you!

Good day to you, Wisdom.

Good day to you too.

I heard you bought a house for Provoke.

Yes, I did.

Why Provoke, why out of the sudden it’s him?

Just in case, it is a long story, and I do not want to talk about it.


Can you respect me?

Of course, Wisdom. Please sit down. Hmm, I see that you are very powerful because you are a billionaire man. Why say you will support me as a charity?

Because you are Peace

Aww, Wisdom

I dreamt that one day you will become a king, and then win the world’s throne, the Earth. Then you will be King Peace.

One of the Earth?

Yes, can you do me a favour?

Yes, I can do you a favour because I owe you a thousand times.

Thank you, Peace. Please keep visiting Provoke. He needs you.

Alright, I will do your favour.

Thank you, Peace, when you keep visiting Provoke, I can promise you a little bit, that you may learn a lot from him even if it is overboard.

Yes, Wisdom.

Good to see you. Say, off I go to leave you in grace.

Have a wonderful day!

You too.


How did you find me?

It doesn’t matter. Why didn’t you tell me where you were?

I do not want to wake up your beauty sleep. Oh, you were comfortable.

We are business partners; don’t you remember that?

Forgive me, Mr. Patience.

I forgive you, and you know, Wisdom. Think, we go to see Mountain?

Yes, but do you know where Mountain is? Because I am not very sure.

I have prepared well before I got you here, and I do know where he is.

Can you take us to where Mountain is?

Yes, Wisdom. Let’s go.

Marvelous. How are you?

I am well, thank you. What business does Wisdom have brought Mr. Patience with me? Why is Mr. Patience here? Should not Wisdom be with him, is that right? Oh, it is my spirit that spoke about what was necessary, not say why you have brought him here before me.

It is important.

Provoke? It is about him. What should you try to convince me only if you think so? Do not say I cannot read you. I know you well because you were my apprentice.


Not now, Mr. Patience.

How strange for Wisdom to not share his thoughts with Mr. Patience.

Can I speak?

Should I allow you to let you speak only if you bring Provoke here? Mr. Patience can wait here, and he must obey me until you bring Provoke here. The deal is deal, say what you, Wisdom?

Why she dares

Not now, please, Mr. Patience?  


I accept your deal.

The Circle of Inventiveness – part 1

Stop watching TV too much.

You are wasting your time, you know. But if you insist, I will be gone too far.

Watching TV too much is not healthy for you. Hey you, are you listening? Hey!


I am saying that you are wasting your time watching TV too much.

Yeah so?

What say you if I make a deal with you?

What deal?

If you stop watching TV for good, I will give you my wealth.

Your wealth?


I am sorry to say that I don’t want your wealth. I prefer to stay here until a making sense comes to wake me up.

If you stop watching TV for good, I will give you my wealth.

I don’t want you to be a hypocrite.

What?! Why are you rude that you think I am a hypocrite?

Look, Charlatan, you know you have failed me with your words many times.

How can I be a hypocrite when I asked you to stop watching TV too much?

Charlatan, listen, can I ask you a question about our past?

No, Provoke. Don’t start it. You do know why I don’t want you to ask me a question about our past.


No, Provoke!

You told me that you love animals, but you eat them! Oh yeah, serve you right! Charlatan thinks he can speak whatever comes out of his mouth, yet he fails them. Oh, yeah, serve Charlatan right! Aye, he must face himself as a hypocrite! That’s why he left just earlier.

What about you, Provoke?

Oh, it is you, Sly. Are you brave enough to join me, to watch TV together, yes?

Before I am brave enough to join you, answer my question.

Sly, why should I tell you when I know that you are such a liar? But care to join me to watch TV together? I will share some biscuits with you.

You have taken points against me, yet you care to offer me some biscuits?

No matter if you deceive me, I will still offer you some biscuits with you. Do you care to sit on a chair over there?



I came here to tell you that you have gone too far.

Why should I listen to Sly when I know that she has gone too far? Why should I not go too far when you are around me? How could I not calm my thoughts surround you? How can my thoughts be calmed when Sly is wasting my time? Well, where is your sister, Honesty?

I don’t know where she is, but Provoke, I came here to tell you that you have gone too far.

I won’t be gone too far if your sister is around, or if their friends, Kindness, and Cosy are around. Oh, how I missed two of them with my delightfulness.

Anyway, another reason why I am here to tell you this, you stop watching TV right now.

Did Charlatan send you to tell me? I told him that he is a hypocrite, so does it mean that you are one of the hypocrites? Aye, I’d like to think that you are one of the hypocrites because you dare to deceive or dare to lie or dare to false your tongue. How Sly fits as a hypocrite because you would tell the righteous ones that you don’t know the Straight Path, and then leave them on the Lost Path, laughing at them at the edge of their lost line. Please, Sly, go, leave, now. Get out!

You hate me.

No, you are wrong. I don’t hate you. I hate how you deceive or lie to yourself. My mind scourges the Hypocrite!

Well then, say what you if I leave you alone?

Please go, leave, what are you waiting for, Sly?



You are hectic, really a hectic man.

Thank you. Now Sly is gone. Although, I don’t like her. Yeah, I also don’t like Charlatan. Who do they think they can waste my time? Well, I am talking to myself, or TV. This TV is full of crap, but not all. Not at all. Yes, not at all, but the TV is full of crap. Too little of the Good News on the TV, but here I am watching it. What can I do? No, what should I do? I will just watch TV and learn more to scourge the Hypocrite. Wait, well, that was my thoughts. No harm at all, but if I tell these thoughts about learning TV, how to scourge the Hypocrite? Well, am I mean? Am I mean to point a finger at someone who is as a hypocrite? Oh, it was my thoughts.


Hi Peace.

Can I join you to watch TV for some time?

Yes, please.

Thank you, Provoke. Well, man, I, nevermind.

I can see that your mind has troubled you?

Yes, it has troubled my mind.


Well, Provoke.

Oh, alright. What say you if it is okay for me to point fingers at someone who is as a hypocrite?

Do you know that it is kind of hectic?

Yes, Peace, but what say you if it is okay for me to point fingers at someone who is as a hypocrite?

Are you a hypocrite?

Exactly! I may be one of the hypocrites, but I am not them, alas, I scourge the Hypocrite instead. 

Well, you know, for me, I rather not put a finger at anyone.

Well, Peace, but can I provoke?

As you please

How is War? How is War? Peace, how is War? Why are you sighing? Yes, I saw you that you were sighing. Anyway, what happens with War? Peace, come on, break your silence.

Sorry, I was focusing on TV. It seems interesting, yet they are, well, nevermind. About War, well. He is not good, and he has gone mad. Everyone who fights with him has made him strong.

But you can beat him. Right? I know you can put an end to War

No! Have I asked you that I wanted to talk about War?

Yes, you have not.

Then let me have my time because I want to watch TV. Please can I have some space?

Do you mean you want me quiet?

I want to watch TV in my time. Please can I have my time here, watching TV?

Yes, Peace.

Hi Provoke! Oh, Peace. How are you?

Hey, Hurry! Have you got what I want?

Yes, here it goes.

Thank you, Hurry. Off you go, please?

You are a hectic man.

Well, off you go, Hurry.

No, I will have some breaks. Excuse me, for I am sitting here.

Aww, okay. Charlatan? Was it him?

Yes, it was him.

Eish, Hurry.

Leave him be. Please give him no trouble, okay?

Come on.

Give him no trouble, okay?

Come on, Hurry!

I said I would have some breaks. Did you not hear what I said just now? I will have some breaks. I need some breaks. No, I need my break. Well, Provoke, while I am here, having some breaks, why don’t you do your things. Yes, do your things, always your things, provoke, provoke, provoke, provoke, and provoke. But can you just stop provoking? Well, my break is up. Off I go, see you, Provoke, and take care, Peace.


Peace, such poetry, I mean, Hurry’s poetry just earlier. What do you think? Well, I understand that you are focusing on TV too much, just like me, Honesty. I am happy to see you. How are you?

Hi, I am well. Hi Peace, can I have some privacy with him?

Yes, Honesty.

Thank you, and I am grateful.

You are welcome.

So, why do you want to have a private with me?

Sly, my sister. Why are you harshing her?

Is that a reason why you are here? Would you care to have some biscuits?

No, thank you. You accused Sly that she is a hypocrite.

Yes, I did accuse her that she is one of the hypocrites.

Why are you not caring for your heart?

Why are you protecting Sly?

She is my sister.

Well, she needs some lectures.

Don’t you dare?

Dare what?

Dare to think that you are perfect, and you think you can lecture anyone as you see fit? No, I will not let you.

Are you a hypocrite?

Huh. Why would you think I am?

Protecting Sly when you know that she is not like you, an honest person, can I ask you a question? I guess it’s a yes. Is it right to protect someone who is as a liar who only protects themselves from being lies?

You think you are allowed to judge, but it is not your job.

Whose job is it?

The Lord.

You said that the Lord can judge?


Why do you think He can judge, not us?

He is powerful, more than we could ever imagine.

Yes, He is powerful more than we could ever imagine, because He is our Lord, but don’t you think He is the Holy Ghost? Why have you not opened your eyes to what your sister is doing? You protect her at all costs, willing to lay down your life for Sly, her?!

You have no respect in your words.

I have no respect for my words toward the Hypocrite!

I used to love you, but not anymore.

Because I hurt your feelings for willing to protect a bad person?

I will not bad-mouth Sly because she is my sister. I will tell you what

No, I tell you what, a bad person cannot see as a good spirit, but you have gone too far to be hypocritical! Get out of my face of the world!

Well, Provoke, at least, I am an honest person, unlike you as a provoking person.

Well, Honesty, at least I am better, to tell the truth, to make the Hypocrite’s ears bleed.

You have gone too far.

Why would you think I would go too far not to be with the likes of liars? I pity you that you would protect the ones that are such deceptive. But I tell you before you get out of my face, the Lord does not sit well with the likes of deception and slyness.

At least the Lord is merciful!

Until the Judgement Day!

What, what Judgement Day?

Everyone includes all living souls who will be there on the Day of Judgement. I must be known, or must you be known to keep quiet that living souls keep increasing? I am not so sure, but have you ever wondered why I am asking you? Must you be known to keep quiet that living souls keep increasing? What if I mean, it is living ignorants that keep pretending nothing is happening on the Earth? Oh, my thoughts, why Honesty runs away? Nevermind me.

You need to learn to be easy with Honesty because I saw that she was crying while she got out.

Yeah, I know Peace, but I serve her right!

I just heard that you said some your last word to Honesty, living ignorants? I think you don’t get it, because I am, well, never mind. One day it shall not be passed.

What do you mean?

It was good to see you. So, see you around.

Alright. I guess Peace means well. Although, in my heart, I love Peace. Yes, he is so unique, but how could I explain it to the world? I am not so sure, but let me watching TV as Peace did during his time in this TV room. Oh, Charlatan, why are you trying to frighten me? Don’t try to frighten me next time, okay, Charlatan?

Yes, no problem, I would like to distract you away from watching TV.

Why would you do it?

Because you called me a hypocrite

Next time, okay? Not today, because Peace had shown me how he was during his time in this TV room. Aye, Peace told me to give him some space, and I did so. As you can see that I am trying to say, well, never mind, can you give me some space, please?

You don’t like me right? I know I am right.

You are right that you are a vulture.

What do you mean?

I mean, you are one of the vultures, like one of the hypocrites.

Why are you not being nice? What have I done to you?

You have done a large amount of misery.

It was a long time ago.

You think you can claim that you have much knowledge and skills than you are currently possessing your knowledge and skills. Why are you deceiving?

I am very tired of you because you keep pointing fingers at me. What have I done to you? I have not done to put you down, have I? I have not tried to betray you, yet have I betrayed you? You keep pointing many fingers at me because I keep lying to everyone that I can have more knowledge and skills than I currently have. Well, I am like someone who tells many lies that like I can be a president, knowing I do not qualify to be that role. You keep judging me because I am like one of the hypocrites, one of the vultures, oh such a metaphor, your metaphor! But have you shamed yourself before you provoke one another?

Yes, I am ashamed of myself, that’s why I keep scourging the Hypocrite. Well, Charlatan, what about you? Should we talk about our past? Yeah, we should talk about our past.

No, Provoke.

Why not? It will be good for your chest to get out.

No! You know what, just continue watching TV, and I will leave you alone, no, I shall leave you alone. Because I am so tired of being provoked by you!

I am waiting for you to go. When are you going out?

You have made me angry.

Too bad, there are cameras everywhere. So, before you go mad. Good. For sure, if someone witnesses my day in this TV room, they would think, is this bad vibe? Disappointment? What would they think? Or what do you think? Think you go mad if you are with me? I wonder so. Oh, these thoughts were mine, yes, alone, mine.

When I said you have made me angry, my words mean that I can destroy you. I am a misled

Oh, a confession.

I am a misled according to you that said I am a hypocrite. What can you do when people follow you? Some people follow me, and what have I done? I have done nothing to them, but torture mind as they would, well, Provoke, I cannot explain it to you.

They follow you because you are Charlatan!

Enough! You are Provoke! You hurt living souls, their feelings, and their hearts. You hurt yourself by provoking all that comes to you! What is wrong with you? Watching TV makes you a better person? No! It makes you worse!


What do you want me to say?


Yes. Disappoint. If I

If you stop the War.

Are you crazy?!


You are scared.

Shut up.

When are you leaving, Charlatan? I was waiting for you to go and get out of the house!

Not your house.

Our house! Do you think this house is yours?

You are silly.

Wait, where do your words come from your mouth? Do you think this house is yours, not ours?


I am confused. Is this house not mine but yours and not ours? I want to know why, how. Wow, I don’t know why your mouth pronounced, you think this house is yours? I cannot fathom myself, and I cannot tell you how much it hurts.

Good! Good for you. Good for Provoke to feel the feeling’s hurt.

Oh, sorry, I was joking. Bad may it a joke, but is it a provoking joke? I am not sure. Can you help me with this matter? Just small, easy to solve, don’t you agree, do you? Oh, he is leaving already. Good for TV to have me as a time.
