If the triangle is the strongest geometrical shape, and natural disasters are a certainty, including the potential global changes on the horizon, it would make sense to leverage this for our stores to ensure we will withstand any natural disasters or land configuration changes, and for many more reasons as well. Pyramid shaped buildings are naturally attractive and inspiring Increased visible to the population from satellites as we observe our planet through our gadgets • Everyone will need to know where to go to get equipment • Where to get guidance on using their equipment Evolving. Marinating. Researching, noting for reference. Not only is it completely fireproof, it is also tornado proof, hurricane proof and will withstand a very large earthquake without any serious damage, as it will jump, slide and move around while staying mostly intact and livable. Because it is built as a one-piece structure, with a center shaft of concrete walls, plus solid concrete walls from the corners to the center shaft, plus all floors being of solid concrete, what makes it so rigid, that one could pick it up with a crane, lay it on one side and it would stay intact. The pyramid will also resist an explosion blast at close distance, even a nuclear one, because the angle of the walls will deflect most of the blast force, as it will deflect projectiles and bullets. The Pyramid will be the best structure to survive a massive flood, or tsunami, because it has living space as high as 40 feet above ground; even more because the top balcony in the design shown, sits at about 48 feet above ground, (kitchen, bath, family room, and extra bedroom are on the 3rd floor and 20 feet above ground). The Pyramid can’t be tipped over by a massive wave either. The pyramid is also the easiest above ground structure to defend, or watch by one person! The clean flush outside has nowhere to hide for possible intruders and anyone from the top can easily see and shoot anyone around it. Four cameras and four lights on top of it will also provide complete coverage of the outside of it, not to mention you can have four weapons mounted on the top (or a rotating one), that could be remotely controlled from anywhere in the house. All exterior openings can also be protected by weapons, flame throwers, etc. Reference. http://www.korvelo.com/pyramid-house/ Nate From: Sullivan, Nathan Sent: Saturday, August 15, 2015 8:39 AM To: Kelly, Thomas Subject: Re: Ideas (and Thanks)
  • 2. 2 The creator of this video is clearly not enlightened. He doesn't know our true purpose, which is why he didn't suggest healing the earth as the primary purpose, and instead mentioned fighting crime and world domination. It's his wonderful imagination, albeit influenced by misguided perception. Just needs guidance. Side note, I enjoyed this comment: Beyond Science 2 days ago Who thinks Batman could defeat superman with kryptonite?

There are very few who may understand the urgency and potential success of my vision, but I am told you are a visionary. I’m taking a calculated risk and am requesting your confidence and counsel. • Before we meet, please read the attached email threads, preferably in the order below. (We’ll discuss what occurred between 5 and 6 in the list below in person, verbally.) o Also, it has been a few weeks now. I have many more ideas and visions that I stopped sending upstream until I establish the appropriate channel for my visions. There are also several I’m not including, as this should be sufficient to gain an understanding. • Assuming you’re open to it, after you review, I’ll share more ideas and potentially prototypes in person. o Major game changers, including expanding several service offerings and innovative products and improving the global perception of the company and shareholders/leaders and motivate our employee base. Talking significant ROI. I have more ideas about our website and customer participation. Please review in this order: 1. Tiko (for context) 2. Flic (for context) 3. Artificial Intelligence & NLP (for context) 4. Increase profit margins (vision evolving) 5. More bionic than you (vision evolving) 6. Career Development 7. Finally – This email thread below. Please let me know when you have read through my vision and if you would like to meet soon. I would like to get input from you before I expand further. I also need counsel from wise leaders. Thanks, Thomas! Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • 4. 4 Good Morning Sanjay. Copying you instinctively. Your knowledge and experience with AI will be critically important in the future. Nate From: Sullivan, Nathan Sent: Saturday, August 01, 2015 6:24 AM To: Brown, Nate Subject: RE: Ideas (and Thanks) Good Morning Nate, Got up extra early this morning and wanted to share this vision before I finish my coffee and work on the priority tasks we discussed yesterday. (I’m on it.) Best Buy will assign Good Heroic aliases to executives as they logically apply to their responsibilities to be used going forward. For example: • CEO of Best Buy will utilize alias: batman@bestbuy.com • PR Executive will utilize alias: superman@bestbuy.com • And so forth. • CEO will strategically wear a plain Batman t-shirt under sport coat, and so forth. • Communications to employees will come from Batman (or other Hero) consistently, not John Smith for a few years and then someone else, etc. • Executives will have additional oversight of a particular area of responsibility to heal the Earth, and their gadgets will likely be specialized for that particular oversight while also having the same capabilities of all Heroic gadgets. • Magnolia showroom will be rebranded as Batcave and designed as such, continuously upgraded with the latest technology that everyone and their family will want to visit. • Executive aliases will remain consistent as executive transitions inevitably occur. o This will stabilize and enhance communication sustainability during all phases, etc. The Best will want to be on our Team. The new perception will inspire: • Fun • Creativity • Consistency • Less Communication Gaps • Mitigate Delays • Increase visibility and flexibility of delegated responsibilities • Heroic Feeling • Loyalty The list goes on.

Please ensure that those with the resources and power look into aquiring the rights to "No Fear" as soon as possible. Outline challenges to resolve to complete this literary resource aquisition.

After your review, if you could share with executive visionaries and leaders to meditate on and process, it would be most appreciated.

I truly admire the passion with which you talked about your ideas. Please give me a few days to review these and I'll get back to you with my constructive feedback.

I sincerely empathize with how much work and responsibility you have, Nate as well. My ideas may be overbearing. Nate will help me get my ideas to the right channel and I'm looking forward to it. He's been very receptive to my idea of communicating my thoughts freely upstream to visionaries to evolve. I wanted to share what I have sent thus far for when you have the time. Your wisdom would be appreciated, or at the very least, you may enjoy gazing into the mind and ambitions of one of your employees. I hope you enjoy. Dates and times are relevant.
