I created Caesar Naples so I could have an influence in social media sites.
The name is part of my personal brand of writing that only I can write. Over
the past 3 years, I’ve been gathering influence on different popular social
media sites, and I’m almost to a point where I can give control of the brand
over to an organization of writers all aligned to the same purpose. He’s like
an action figure, when he is friendly, fun, and inviting. But the information
he delivers to people is often very uncomfortable for them to accept.
I think I am prepared for Caesar Naples to have an influence on me. I don’t know
if you all will see it, but this ‘wiki’/‘book’/‘presence’ is at the crossroads
of a lot of things that seem to be going on around here.
Do you make odd faces when you’re thinking? This is know as tardive diskinesia
and is a sign that you’re being controlled by a drug user.
Do you make hand gestures at weird times? You’re basically lost at this point;
it’s a satanic method of marking their territory.
Does your mood shift greatly depending on your behaviors? It’s not that you’re
learning how to control your emotions; it’s that an Illuminati controller is.

There are echoes of zine culture in this—Charlie McAlister would love this, I think.
The author is active on /r/conspiracy and seems to be forming a group there to
write under this and other personas—though it’s difficult to tell whether it’s all
made up—don’t think I care, I think it’s very exciting.
I see h0p3 in there too: in the Caesar Naples Wiki,
there is reference to autism as a horcrux—this seems uncanny, given Sphygmus’
recent usage of the horcrux as a metaphor… What is going on??
Unlike h0p3, his writing is scattered everywhere, laced together with a bunch
of Google sites—the copypastapublishing one
is a good place to start, with the story Publishing Company 2002 and the
To OK Gov piece. More are here.
Some of the stories appear to be based on Markov chain generated text, others
are quite lucid.
(Ah, I am not familiar with the ‘copypasta’ thing—this is my first exposure
to it—it seems to want to take conspiracy-sounding or overserious rants out of
context? I don’t know if it is a political thing—I am naive about all of that.
There is a prolific person under this. I also am starting to see that
people likely suspect my own self of being fradulent, of being h0p3, of being alt-right,
of being an ARG, of being Brad Enslen, of being a schizophrenic, of being a radical leftist,
of being a greatest showman—I am fine with all of these explanations and I think it would be a
fortunate thing to even be thought of by someone somewhere.)
This person also has an understanding of community dynamic, another topic that is
bubbling up lately.
I let my Caesar Naples act pour mercilessly into my communication with the
writers of this community. There were personal details I shared that would make
anybody uncomfortable related to my schizophrenia. I would host imaginary games
where I pretended the chat room was a group of survivors in the apocalypse.
I also made some very unreasonable claims and tried my damnest to justify
them - all part of the Caesar Naples act. Eventually, I was kicked from two
communities that I very much wanted to be part of, because they represented
my instant recovery from exile.
Now that I’m no longer a part of those communities, I try my hardest to balance
the wild, incredible parts of Caesar Naples with something more human.
