Let me just say to begin with that if the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes in the morning would be an army of multicolored aliens advancing towards me from out of the wall….
…….it would not be good.
However, as I am wont to say, all too frequently, ‘people like and dislike different things.’
These little guys are Pikmin, not to be confused with pacman and they have the power of positive reinforcement. Or rather they will be once we have managed to instill the ability to send an empowering message to their leader. Visualization is critical here as well as lots of practice. Each wee Pikmin, will chant and cheer. No doubt they will need to be replaced with something more age appropriate in due course, but for the time being we use what works, and what generally works best is the current fixation, [a.k.a. enthusiasm] Pikmin rule our world.
At least they’re non-violent and keep up a continuous stream of happy little giggling noises. [Which can become irritating to grown up people who lack a sense of humor.]
The villainous Water Dumples can be defeated with their carnivorous tendencies.
You may worry, as I do, that filling their little heads with all this nonsense, may do more harm than good. Surely this kind of rubbish merely clutters up their brains which should be packed with more helpful information. And you may very well be right. However, first and foremost, they must reach the age of majority and still be alive, and hopefully happy, or if not happy, at least not suicidal.
Although we seem to being attacked by the same troubles in a couple of generations.
