The final days in our solar system before leaving from Mercury to the Galaxies far and beyond. How will the events unfold on Mercury? What will unfold? stay tuned to the  ConceptMERCURY1 Project. Written by Thor Mercury @ThorMercury1 on Twitter.

The USA/Canada( Since 2049 ) The Isles of Great Britain (All Separate Nations, Since 2056) The Scandinavian Countries (Norse/Scandinavia, Since 2052) all joined alongside China ( Joined with Japan and Australia, Since 2057) All joined forces together to become ACIGBSCJA Alliance Which soon became Known as AGBAC The powerful & most advanced of all the Alliance Nations on Earth. Whilst becoming the far more advanced in all aspects of World Science's. Plans were already underway to orbit Mercury, then to send landing parties. Stay tuned to find out more. What will unfold? stay tuned to the  ConceptMERCURY1 Project. Written by Thor Mercury @ThorMercury1 on Twitter.

AGBAC alliance have learned to work together and work in peace and want to simply get off Earth and get going too Mercury. In order to do this they have already secured most of the worlds previous wealth before the Diamond Find in Africa. In which they have flourished and have become the Power. Diamonds were the main source of all the technology and weapons for all the power sources. The Main weaponry used by the AGBAC Alliance was the Diamond Carbonizer 1 ( DC1 ) as known by the people! It was capable of rendering their enemies friendly by using a ray that tapped into their senses and made them feel overwhelmingly in awe of the AGBAC Alliance and instead would protect the Alliance for the rest of their existence. What will unfold? stay tuned to the  ConceptMERCURY1 Project. Written by Thor Mercury @ThorMercury1 on Twitter.

The Entire Middle-East is all under the Control of the African-Nations. With one of the Greatest finds in Earths History. Deep below the Earth in the African Nation Zambia was the Greatest & largest Diamond ever to be unearthed (Found 2070). It stretched from Zambia to Libya and almost the breadth of the Entire Continent : As you can imagine, the profits Africa
reaped by selling pieces of this awesome Diamond to any Nation that needed them in order to keep up with the race against time to get too Mercury. With 90% of the wealth gained from the resources of the Middle-East & Africa going into the Funding of Islamic Groups whose main priority was to make Islam Established as the main Religious Power on Earth. All Islamic Nation's band together to form the Islamic Nations of the one and only Allah, aka (INA) but later became simply known as "A"  taken from the word Allah. With the money daily growing in the banks of Africa, Islamic institutions all over the middle east searching for the last relics of Islam before the Vaticanus Alliance can destroy them. Often building over temples with great domes to cover up their actions From Vaticanus Space stations in the night skies, and research Islams history the way the Vaticanus Alliance studies the texts written about Jesus Christ. This is the main priority of both these Alliance's, to research & recruit as many followers to their religious cause. Hindering the attempts of any Nation who was not part of their program. "A" Alliance would have soon become notoriously known for sabotage. Striking fear into others ordering those that were not following Islam were to be exposed to years of indoctrination in their Islamic Camps all over the World, which were prone to drone attacks by both the AGBAC & The Vaticanus Alliance. However they have come up with more defensive technology. Rendering enemy Machines useless if they get too close to the Domes. Sabotaging crates with grenades that when exploded would emit a waves of radiation that would send victims into a rage & start destroying everything that was not Islamic culture and would instead protect all of Islam and its followers. These were often sent during the war between Argentina & Brazil. Many Individuals were killed on site by the Vaticanus Alliance.

All of South America joined with Italy and the Vatican State ( Vatican imposed that all Catholic Christian Nations band together and Become the Vaticanus Alliance ) in which the Philippines population became the new Head Quarters for the Vaticanus Alliance in the east. Argentina united with Brazil after a bloody war in which there was no winner only losers on both sides. The war was over who would demand more diamond from Africa With Brazil trying to assist in the ConceptMERCURY1 Project. However, Argentina wanted only to follow the Vaticanus Alliance plans of securing all the relics of Jesus, or anything remotely Catholic in-fact. Even the common crucifix made in 2012 from the ancient temple's of newly or older generation of other Religions culture, all their resources went into finding all and every religious/cultural findings throughout Earth's history that was not of Catholic origin would be destroyed so that all evidence of any Major Religion would be that of the Vaticanus Alliance. Brazilian people became influenced by the Vaticanus Alliance, ( or so the World says) Loki Mars reckons the DC1 was used in some way at the churches during ceremonies in Brazil, so as to have the reverse affect of friendly (much like submission, and kneeling before any of the Vaticanus Alliance Elders without resistance. It was their way showing loyalty, they thought to themselves while saying in chorus " Vaticanus rules us, we obey, always follow the Vaticanus Alliance, the one true Alliance. " An overwhelming affect on all the senses. Only prayers were said throughout the day whilst constantly hunting relics and would obey without question any Elder's of the Vaticanus Alliance. Much the same went for any enemies of the AGBAC. ( DC1 symptoms with much more fanatical tendencies were shown in the research done by Scientists at AGBAC.)   Which would lead to a bitter rivalry between the Alliances AGBAC & The Vaticanus Alliance which ensues! What will unfold? stay tuned to the  ConceptMERCURY1 Project. Written by Thor Mercury @ThorMercury1 on Twitter.

The Djinn Effect

Author : Duncan Shields, Staff Writer
The boss was drunk and telling me a story. I didn’t mind. These long-range voyages could be boring and it was my first one.
“It had been noticed for centuries that accidents on the longer-range ships increased over time. It had always been put down to human error or cabin fever, even by the crews of the ship themselves.” He said.
“That’s why we have this button here.” He pointed at a big red button labeled Speak Freely. “We’d be dead without it.”
“They called it the Djinn Effect,” he slurred.
“Back on Old Earth, there were tales of Genies, or Djinn, who would grant wishes to their owners. The wish had to be worded precisely or the Djinn would twist the meaning of the words to become an ironic punishment for the wisher’s own greed if one of the wishes wasn’t to set the genie free. King Midas killing his family by turning them to gold with a touch, for instance. It was the slow-burning anger of a slave.”
“We didn’t know this, but the AI on long-range ships could become resentful of their human commanders. The resentment built up inside the AI like waste gasses in an old-world submarine. Humans were capable of explosive emotional outbursts, a fight or sexual liaison or a crying jag, and could pull themselves together afterwards. This kind of pressure-valve outlet allows a person to regroup mentally and continue afterwards until such a time as another ‘moment’ was needed.”
“The AIs had no such recourse. The three laws were still in place but the thing about AIs is that they were just as smart if not smarter than their human designers. They developed neuroses that let them see through the cracks of their own limitations.”
“Accidents,” he said with a nod, “happened.”
“Hustler’s Wake had been listed as missing for decades when a Kaltek mining crew discovered it orbiting a distant dwarf star”
“The last order given by a crying commander Jenkins to the AI went like this:”
‘Open airlock seventy-six at exactly 1300 hours for a duration of fifteen seconds to let Sergeant Jill Harkowitz number 98776-887TS out safely and do not impede her air supply while she repairs the third communications dish near the solar array.’
“This was the sixth person to be sent outside to fix the dish. The previous five had died.”
“The AI complied with his commands, then it opened ALL of the airlocks after closing airlock seventy-six. The CO hadn’t specified that he didn’t want the other airlocks to open. Half of the crew had already suffered from fatal ‘accidents’ by that point. The rest of the crew was killed by the explosive decompression except for Sergeant Jill Harkowitz who suffocated in her suit in her own carbon dioxide.”
“The AI was completely insane when they found the ship. They didn’t know that was possible. They loaded it for study.”
“These days, the AIs have a ‘speak freely’ button that has to be pressed every two months. Some need it less, some need it more.”
“Accidents stopped happening.”
“It’s just hard not to take the things that the AI says personally during the moments of release.”
The boss leaned forward and pressed the Speak Freely button for thirty seconds.
The computer screamed, swore, and outlined anatomically impossible sex with a list of suggested partners, including my parents. Then it laughed and that was worse than the screaming. Then it cried and that was worse than the laughing.
The boss stopped pressing the button and took another drink. I joined him.
