LISA RENEE: “Yeshua Essene Manuscripts”

“During the Founder Guardian Yeshua Mission, it was the purpose of Yeshua through access to his higher embodiment as a Universal Blue Flame Melchizedek, to help regain control over the Essene Christos Templar translations from the 12 holographic discs. His embodiment was divinely purposed to retrieve much of the Founder Records, by transferring that information into written manuscripts and sacred texts in order to return this spiritual knowledge of the Inner Christos back to all of humanity. This knowledge included humanities true origins from the planet Tara that extended from other Universes, and the historical accounts from the Luciferian Rebellion and Atlantian Cataclysm as directly given to him from the Emerald Founder records. The Yeshua Essene team included his genetic equal wife and twelve people that acted in the role of grid workers, to run rainbow frequencies into the earth ley lines. They were organized with the mission to help realign the planetary grid network and stargate system, from outside of the control of the alien invaders. The spiritual mission was to restore alignment back to the angelic humans and the true representatives of Christos consciousness on the earth, when the Stargates finally opened during the Ascension Cycle. This highly guarded information included explicit details of the blueprints to build rod and staff architecture in the planetary templar, genetic keys to open Stargate 11, and how to gain access to the zero-point power source needed to regain control over the stargate system from the negative alien invaders. This detailed data was held in a specific technology that they had access to carry on their physical person, held in a small silver shield like disc. In retaliation to the Yeshua Mission, the Orion group chose to invade the territories near the 5th Stargate and infiltrate this central region of Italy in order to create the foundation for what would become the Church of Rome and Papacy. This began the invasion of the Black Suns into the region, who built the Catholic religious control mechanism that would become the worldwide political machine and blood sacrifice altar centered in Vatican City. Some of the teachings and their sacred knowledge as translated by Yeshua’s Essene team into volumes of manuscripts, were stolen and eventually taken through Serbia and ended up in Turkey. This was the result of a final ambush in Amarna, which rendered them unable to complete their mission. The original manuscripts and drawings of some of Yeshua’s teachings and the Essene team translations that were hidden in Turkey, eventually surfaced when given to the political powers and accessed by the ruler of that time, Roman Emperor Constantine. This timeline is an important trigger event that spawned the movement of the World Religious Control Mechanisms and related mind control dogmas that are still in place today. Roman Emperor Constantine ordered his Christian Bishops to organize the first conference in coordination with the Church of Rome, to enact a council to review these secretly stolen Essene manuscripts. Over many hundreds of years these sacred manuscripts from Yeshua’s team were further translated, studied and then falsified, edited, and omitted from revealing important spiritual concepts, as set forth by the decisions made by the powers behind the Council of Nicaea and the Drakonian leadership that had infiltrated the Church of Rome. However, this Council set into motion the ongoing basis for the dogma that would be used for human torture and blood sacrifice made in the name of God.”

This began the invasion of the Black Suns into the region, who built the Catholic religious control mechanism that would become the worldwide political machine and blood sacrifice altar centered in Vatican City. This remains a massive power and global control center for the main Controller Pillars of Society.

Some of the teachings and their sacred knowledge as translated by Yeshua’s Essene team into volumes of manuscripts, were stolen and eventually taken through Serbia and ended up in Turkey. This was the result of a final ambush in Amarna, which rendered them unable to complete their mission.

This timeline is an important trigger event that spawned the movement of the World Religious Control Mechanisms and related mind control dogmas that are still in place today.

Council of Nicaea and Essene Manuscripts

Roman Emperor Constantine ordered his Christian Bishops to organize the first conference in coordination with the Church of Rome, to enact a council to review these secretly stolen Essene manuscripts. The First Council of Nicaea is the first recorded worldwide council of the Christian Church in 325AD, which took place in Turkey and was presided over by the Emperor Constantine. History would tell us that the purpose of the Council of Nicaea was to create statements and canons of doctrinal belief with the intent to define what would become fundamental Christian beliefs, establishing the Nicene Creed. Over many hundreds of years these sacred manuscripts from Yeshua’s team were further translated, studied and then falsified, edited, and omitted from revealing important spiritual concepts, as set forth by the decisions made by the powers behind the Council of Nicaea and the Drakonian leadership that had infiltrated the Church of Rome. However, this Council set into motion the ongoing basis for the dogma that would be used for human torture and blood sacrifice made in the name of God. [1]

LISA RENEE: “Disclosure Hijack”

“For propaganda to be effective it has to have a mouthpiece, there must be key players or persons in positions of power with significant control over mass-communication media who are thought to have credibility with a large audience that makes them money. Controlled opposition is the predictable manipulation tactic of placing key people in key positions and into leadership roles of a particular movement, who many times have suddenly appeared and offered the public incredible facts or amazing nuggets of truth. Maybe it is a pundit personality looking to gather a large online following through disseminating the cabal wars through the QAnon movement. Maybe it’s a guru personality offering DNA activation and the ability to manifest anything you want. Power and influence are forces gathered through which they become a pied piper, a person that is celebrated, worshipped or made into a hero. The strategy of controlled opposition works best under circumstances in which the masses are gullible, credulous, lack critical thinking and are unable to connect the dots and see how the actions and inaction or manipulation of the information from the controlled entity is actually benefiting the controlling entity. If we don’t realize that we are being lied to we are at a disadvantage. This blocks out our higher discernment in determining the quality of people and objects that are emanating these combinations of forces that are dark or light, positive or negative, alien or human, or anything else for that matter. Nevertheless, the disclosure event must eventually happen in order to reveal the deceptions, fraud and crimes against humanity made by those humans and nonhumans that have conspired to covertly generate global human slavery and mind control, by implementing the blueprint of the NAA groups for instigating world suffering for the purpose of creating a consciousness prison. Additionally, humans would be reeducated to know about NAA groups, Secret Space Programs, Human Trafficking, Mind Control, Transhumanism and AI agendas, DNA and genetic manipulation programs on planet and off planet. Much of what we see harming people in the world today could be stopped with only critical thinking, common sense and the ability to reduce some selfishness and greed. Speaking of selfishness and greed, in order to better understand the Thothian Luciferians, the Thoth, Enki, Enlil entities and the Galactic Federation historical timeline tragedies on planet earth, we must go back in time to discover the original meaning behind the title of Lucifer.”


Humanity is enduring a hidden multidimensional battle for disclosure which is gradually happening as the collective consciousness shifts into higher dimensional planes as the result of the Ascension cycle. It is evident that there is a hijack of the disclosure movement in order to gain total control over how that particular content is being shared with the public. This is occurring via the spreading of familiar narratives and the same propaganda tactics that are used for the purpose of psychological manipulation of the intended audience and the key players. For propaganda to be effective it has to have a mouthpiece, there must be key players or persons in positions of power with significant control over mass-communication media who are thought to have credibility with a large audience that makes them money.

Controlled opposition is the predictable manipulation tactic of placing key people in key positions and into leadership roles of a particular movement, who many times have suddenly appeared and offered the public incredible facts or amazing nuggets of truth. Maybe it is a pundit personality looking to gather a large online following through disseminating the cabal wars through the QAnon movement. Maybe it’s a guru personality offering DNA activation and the ability to manifest anything you want. As a result of the sensationalism, marketing or other methods to deliver this level of information, they gain power and influence from the amount of people that have gathered, along with the online clicks and money that is spent on their products or watching them at events. Power and influence are forces gathered through which they become a pied piper, a person that is celebrated, worshipped or made into a hero. Seemingly leading gullible people into any direction, when ultimately, they were placed there as a wolf in sheep’s clothing to derail and hijack the original goals of that movement. The strategy of controlled opposition works best under circumstances in which the masses are gullible, credulous, lack critical thinking and are unable to connect the dots and see how the actions and inaction or manipulation of the information from the controlled entity is actually benefiting the controlling entity.

Deception tactics 101 are used to generate mental fabrications and emotional reactions intended for seizing control, power, benefits and advantages at the victim’s expense. That may be to intentionally spread disinformation or outright lies to stimulate emotional reactions, so people do not use critical thinking in discerning the quality or truthfulness of the information they are being given. The golden rule of deception is management of the other person’s perception, such that they do not know any deception is happening and accept whatever you tell them or spoon feed them as truthful. If we don’t realize that we are being lied to we are at a disadvantage. This blocks out our higher discernment in determining the quality of people and objects that are emanating these combinations of forces that are dark or light, positive or negative, alien or human, or anything else for that matter.

The disclosure movement has been intentionally shaped into the left-brain composite of the branch of alternative researchers and presenters who still operate on the presumption that the scientific method promoted by academia is credible, and attempt to deliver evidence-based information that can be corroborated through multiple parties of expert witnesses. The movement towards disclosure is predominately geared towards those males that are polarized in their mental body and masculine energy, the intellectual profile that rely on the sole basis of their physical body’s five basic senses. If they can see it in the visible light spectrum, well then, they’ll believe it. Thus, the primary profile of key people that are populating the disclosure movement tend to be 3D fact finders and researchers and not direct experiencers, hence many are not primarily interested in spiritual development or expanding consciousness. This provides a blaring blind spot for dark manipulation to incite negative ego behaviors and dominating egos run amok, as the result of gaining some power and influence, where promoting a brand, merchandise or online clicks are more important than actually having personal integrity and delivering high quality truthful assessments of the current conditions we find ourselves in.

In the New Age, Ascension and Disclosure community where large conferences and panels are gaining commercial popularity and increasing profitability, victims and victimizers are generated in those communities like the flavor of the month. From personal experiences and continued observation of key players, back stabbing and two-faced lying are standard fare at these events, along with a large smile flashing right on cue to endear the applauding audience. Most seasoned presenters with some semblance of personal integrity and ethical conduct learn very quickly that the majority of the people on these circuits are not your friends or peer group. They will turn on you quite viciously if you deviate from their approved topics or narratives or if you are perceived as threatening to their power base. Some of the most hostile mind-controlled people are on these panels and in these communities, as many are being directly controlled by the Thothian groups. Thus, they are highly reactive and emotionally explosive when they feel they are being challenged in any way.

Nevertheless, the disclosure event must eventually happen in order to reveal the deceptions, fraud and crimes against humanity made by those humans and nonhumans that have conspired to covertly generate global human slavery and mind control, by implementing the blueprint of the NAA groups for instigating world suffering for the purpose of creating a consciousness prison.

Full Disclosure Event refers to the highest level of extraterrestrial disclosure to earthlings that reveals the most detailed scenarios of our true hidden extraterrestrial human Galactic History. Not the manipulated NAA version of Archontic Deception Strategy used to control the mainstream historical records and enslave the human population since the Sumerian-Egypt Invasion. Humans would be briefed beyond just knowing about the existence of the Extraterrestrial races, crafts and cooperative agreements made with earthly world governments. Additionally, humans would be reeducated to know about NAA groups, Secret Space Programs, Human Trafficking, Mind Control, Transhumanism and AI agendas, DNA and genetic manipulation programs on planet and off planet. How earth, human resources and technology are used as barter to trade with a variety of off planet civilizations and extraterrestrial species. Full Disclosure Event includes revealing the Power Elite groups and Negative Alien groups that have abused power on earth and are required to restore energetic balance, to make amends for the crimes they have made against humanity.

To stop the targeting of individuals attempting to disseminate the truth by crippling them financially, socially and otherwise, is another reason why disclosure is so important for those of us that seek to know the truth above all. It would remove a huge burden of threats and attacks to those of us under the assorted umbrella of the truth communities that are giving all of our time and energy, that is our life’s work to support full disclosure of this information to be freely given to the earth population. If people were not being lied to, but being re-educated towards the content that includes disclosure, they would be much more open. More open and willing to comprehending the laws of nature and to see how the current death culture was engineered to violate those laws in order to enslave all of humanity. Much of what we see harming people in the world today could be stopped with only critical thinking, common sense and the ability to reduce some selfishness and greed.

Speaking of selfishness and greed, in order to better understand the Thothian Luciferians, the Thoth, Enki, Enlil entities and the Galactic Federation historical timeline tragedies on planet earth, we must go back in time to discover the original meaning behind the title of Lucifer. [1]

Control Over Disclosure Topics

As the collective consciousness rides these electromagnetic waves into Summer, the 3D narratives and the storefronts of the Controllers that weave incredibly complex webs of deceit and lies being peddled through their bribed and blackmailed mainstream puppets, become ever more apparent. To counter the many revelatory truths that are surfacing bits and bobs of disclosure information, the controlling factions are organizing for next level of strategic targeting of all dissent, as well as shutting down any unapproved ascension-disclosure topics. They are desperately employing an array of military grade Psychological Warfare surveillance tools from their secret space program arsenal, in order to capture all forms of media with a next generation attack against the alternative news, truther and UFO movements, as well as any and all content related to new age, ascension and disclosure. The censorship along with the reframing of language and shifting of cultural norms into transhumanism are already incredibly aggressive and about to come to blows, with anything and everything that is being used to distract the masses from accessing any form of unfiltered truth. What has been framed as the western democratic culture that values free speech and personal liberties is being transformed and reformatted for supporting the new NAA culture of Transhumanism. The rise of the new AI hybrid species where social norms are to include an unlimited number of astral attachments, Possessions and entities that can hijack a human body, are being normalized when the host refers to itself as a They-Them.

LISA RENEE on “Banishing Gullibility”

“In the current terrain of masterful deceptions and lies being propagated by those desperate to hang onto the status quo and global power, the issue of gullibility in the masses is being heightened and exploited. It is the tendency to automatically believe that imposters and actors are telling us the truth at face value, that makes us easily persuaded into believing something that is entirely false. Gullibility makes us pliable to reality hijack, believing the deceptions and lies that we have been told by those we perceive as an authority, with the covert agenda to hold onto the most wealth and power possible, at any cost. Many unethical people on the world stage are addicted to power, and continue to role play a manufactured persona. Their goal is to continually distract by inciting violence and destructive conflicts within high profile interest groups, influencing gullibility in the masses. Tyrannical despots and authoritarian globalist leaders hide behind the strawman faces of a puppet-democracy, when they actually seek to simultaneously destroy its core humanitarian principles. It is the Live Action Role Players or LARPs that are being used by the NAA-Controllers to reinforce our 3D belief systems or worldview by feeding us lies. Many people tend to believe these actors on the world stage as telling the truth or being trustworthy, irrespective of the long list of facts and hard evidence to the contrary. When we perceive the motivations behind the inverted façade, we can ask to seek the larger truth that is found in who or what actually benefits from those lies, and then we can begin to see what cost these lies actually extract from the human race. Most people are refusing to dig deeper into hard topics and ask the difficult questions that challenge their belief systems, following through to investigate the larger picture that connects all of the pieces in this vast puzzle. Yet, this dedication to finding the truth within the taboo and hard topics is exactly what is needed, now more than ever.”

LISA RENEE on “Banishing the Lies”

“In the current reality, if a human reinforces the controller agenda and plays Service to Self games, is a predatorial liar and disinformation agent to gain advantage over others, he or she will be greatly rewarded on the material plane. No one can remain unbiased when they can be bought and sold for a price. When the masses are spoon fed deceptions and falsehoods by the Power Elite who have collected the wealth, celebrity, fame or status, the bigger lies spread can be made easier to swallow. This lack of awareness about the nature of this 3D reality, further leads us into becoming cogs in divisive and harmful agendas, becoming the proponents that are being mind controlled to actually support the Controllers’ nefarious plans. Collectively there is a radical push piercing the veil through the astral walls of black magic that have been filled with spells of deception. There are mind control implants that work as mind slides, so the mind slides off the unapproved topic and just ignores the information as if it was never communicated, and then moves mental focus onto something else very quickly. Further, some people will tend to ridicule the information and even attack the messenger, if it’s being perceived as threatening to their ego-personality’s belief systems. We cannot ignore the pile of lies upon lies around us anymore. As we banish the lies from our lives, we shatter the prettily packaged illusions and the content rises up to the surface consciousness, where we can finally see the larger pieces of truth.”

LISA RENEE: “Circular Debate”

“We live during a time where there is a weaponization of narratives, and no one is immune to this type of false information targeting. To weaponize a narrative is to gain control over how people think, what they believe to be true, and to control their perception in the process of delivering them disinformation that is designed to weaken them and weaken their defenses. Why do the Controllers want you weakened? Reflect on that. What really weakens you emotionally and mentally, and your ability to discern the truth and make informed decisions for yourself that empower and support your spiritual strength, that which is needed to actualize your purpose in the world? The number one weakening tactic used by those leaders controlled by Thothian hijack that generate Propaganda is to get you to believe a lie as a truth. If you believe lies you are being told your perception, your beliefs and your behaviors will be fully controlled, your spiritual guidance will be distorted, you’ll think north is south and south is east, and this keeps you lost in the sea of confusion. Lies confuse your inner compass, you will not know what direction you are traveling. That is what it means to weaponize narratives, believing in lies weakens people, you cannot know what direction you are travelling if your Spiritual Guidance System is messed up and you are moving in the wrong direction and are not aware that you need course correction. This is an important part of Psychological Warfare, and mostly it is designed to confuse people into webs of disinformation and then get people to spread the disinformation as facts or made into a belief system.”

Circular debate: An argument that goes nowhere. Though a person believes he or she is arguing a point, the argument does not progress because the individual has an fixed and immovable belief that is considered to be a fact and this is the core point of the argument, which in their belief system, is actually not debatable. The Negative Ego tends to exert Mental Rigidity which fixates on polarizing belief systems on right and wrong, black and white, Splitting behaviors that compartmentalize thinking into Circular Reasoning and Linear Thinking.

The following terms describe an assortment of Logical Fallacies that are commonly used as Ego Defense Mechanisms in order to divert attention away from flawed arguments that favor one’s desired personal position or supports their beliefs of self-justification during conflicts.

What Is a Logical Fallacy?

Logical fallacies are flawed, deceptive, or false arguments that can be proven wrong with reasoning. There are two main types of fallacies:

  • A formal fallacy is an argument with a premise and conclusion that doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.
  • An informal fallacy is an error in the form, content, or context of the argument.[1]

Circular Reasoning

Circular reasoning is when you attempt to make an argument by beginning with an assumption that what you are trying to prove is already true. In your premise, you already accept the truth of the claim you are attempting to make. It sounds complicated, but it is easily understood with some real-world examples.

Circular reasoning may sound convincing, but consider who will most likely be convinced by a circular argument. Those who already accept the argument as true are more likely to be further convinced. This is because they already believe the assumption that is stated.

Examples of Circular Reasoning:

  • The Bible is true, so you should not doubt the Word of God.

This argument rests on your prior acceptance of the Bible as truth. Therefore in the belief system and mind of this person, this is a fact that is not debatable.

Straw Man

A fallacy is an argument or belief based on erroneous reasoning, usually designed to attack or gaslight an opponent. Straw man is one type of logical fallacy. Straw man occurs when someone argues that a person holds a view that is actually not what the other person believes. Instead, it is a distorted version of what the person believes. So, instead of attacking the person’s actual statement or belief, it is the distorted version that is attacked, when the targeted person never made the statement to begin with. The basic assumption is that if one small part of an argument can be proved false then, by association, the whole argument is also false. A weak argument is one made of straw that is easily knocked over. Hence the term straw man. [2]

Red Herring

Red herring is a kind of fallacy that is an irrelevant topic introduced in an argument to divert the attention of listeners or readers from the original issue. In literature, this fallacy is often used in detective or suspense novels to mislead readers or characters, or to induce them to make false conclusions.

Manipulators use red herrings to lay a false trail that leads people away from areas that you do not want them to see. To do this, the trail must be of sufficient interest that the other person misses any clues to other areas. Red herrings are particularly useful when the activity is time-bound. Time spent following the red herring is time that can not be spent looking in other areas. Talking about problems that are not really problems has effects beyond distraction. [3]

Fallacy

A fallacy is the use of invalid or otherwise faulty reasoning, or “wrong moves” in the construction of an argument. A fallacious argument may be deceptive by appearing to be better than it really is. Some fallacies are committed intentionally to manipulate or persuade by deception, while others are committed unintentionally due to carelessness or ignorance. The soundness of legal arguments depends on the context in which the arguments are made. [4]

Non Sequitur

A non sequitur (Classical Latin: “it does not follow”) is a conversational literary device, often used for comedic purposes or to confuse the audience. It is something said that, because of its apparent lack of meaning relative to what preceded it, seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing. [5] See Absurdism.

Confirmation Bias

Confirmation Bias is the strong human tendency to dismiss or distort evidence or facts that are contrary to our acceptable beliefs formed by our Mental Map and readily seek out any kind of evidence that supports our views.[6]

Begging the question

Begging the question is a type of circular reasoning, an argument that requires that the desired conclusion be considered to be true, whether it is true or not. This often occurs in an indirect way such that the fallacy’s presence is being hidden, or at least not easily apparent. Begging the question is often used to mean “raising the question” or “suggesting the question”. Sometimes it is confused with “dodging the question”, which is an evasion technique used in an attempt to avoid answering the question. [7]

Ad Hominem

An ad hominem fallacy uses personal attacks rather than logic. This fallacy occurs when someone rejects or criticizes another point of view based on the personal characteristics, ethnic background, physical appearance, or other non-relevant traits of the person who holds it.

Ad hominem arguments are often used in politics, where they are often called “mudslinging.” They are considered unethical because politicians can use them to manipulate voters’ opinions against an opponent without addressing core issues.

Bandwagon Fallacy

The Bandwagon Fallacy assumes something is true (or right or good) because others agree with it. In other words, the fallacy argues that if everyone thinks a certain way, then you should, too.

One problem with this kind of reasoning is that the broad acceptance of a claim or action doesn’t mean that it’s factually justified. People can be mistaken, confused, deceived, or even willfully irrational in their opinions, so using them to make an argument is flawed.[8]

Causal Fallacy

Causal fallacies are informal fallacies that occur when an argument incorrectly concludes that a cause is related to an effect. Think of the causal fallacy as a parent category for other fallacies about unproven causes.

One example is the false cause fallacy, which is when you draw a conclusion about what the cause was without enough evidence to do so. Another is the post hoc fallacy, which is when you mistake something for the cause because it came first — not because it actually caused the effect.

Appeal to Hypocrisy

An appeal to hypocrisy — also known as the tu quoque fallacy — focuses on the hypocrisy of an opponent. The tu quoque fallacy deflects criticism away from oneself by accusing the other person of the same problem or something comparable.

The tu quoque fallacy is an attempt to divert blame. The fallacy usually occurs when the arguer uses apparent hypocrisy to neutralize criticism and distract from the issue.

Sunk Cost

A sunk cost fallacy is when someone continues doing something because of the effort they already put in it, regardless of whether the additional costs outweigh the potential benefits. “Sunk cost” is an economic term for any past expenses that can no longer be recovered.

For example: Imagine that after watching the first six episodes of a TV show, you decide the show isn’t for you. Those six episodes are your “sunk cost.” A sunk cost fallacy would be deciding to finish watching anyway because you’ve already invested roughly six hours of your life in it.

Equivocation

Equivocation happens when a word, phrase, or sentence is used deliberately to confuse, deceive, or mislead. In other words, saying one thing but meaning another.

When it’s poetic or comical, we call this a “play on words.” But when it’s done in a political speech, an ethics debate, or an economics report — and it’s designed to make the audience think you’re saying something you’re not — that’s when it becomes a fallacy.

False Dilemma/False Dichotomy

A false dilemma or false dichotomy presents limited options — typically by focusing on two extremes — when in fact more possibilities exist. The phrase “America: Love it or leave it” is an example of a false dilemma.

The false dilemma fallacy is a manipulative tool designed to polarize the audience, promoting one side and demonizing another. It’s common in political discourse as a way of strong-arming the public into supporting controversial legislation or policies.

Hasty Generalization

A hasty generalization is a claim based on a few examples rather than substantial proof. Arguments based on hasty generalizations often don’t hold up due to a lack of supporting evidence: The claim might be true in one case, but that doesn’t mean it’s always true.

Hasty generalizations are common in arguments because there’s a wide range of what’s acceptable for “sufficient” evidence. The rules for evidence can change based on the claim you’re making and the environment where you are making it — whether it’s rooted in philosophy, the sciences, a political debate, or discussing house rules for using the kitchen.

Appeal to Authority

Appeal to authority is the misuse of an authority’s opinion to support an argument. While an authority’s opinion can represent evidence and data, it becomes a fallacy if their expertise or authority is overstated, illegitimate, or irrelevant to the topic.

For example, citing a foot doctor when trying to prove something related to psychiatry would be an appeal to authority fallacy.

Appeal to Pity

An appeal to pity relies on provoking your emotions to win an argument rather than factual evidence. Appealing to pity attempts to pull on an audience’s heartstrings, distract them, and support their point of view.

Someone accused of a crime using a cane or walker to appear more feeble in front of a jury is one example of appeal to pity. The appearance of disability isn’t an argument on the merits of the case, but it’s intended to sway the jury’s opinion anyway. [9]
