Michael will receive an e-mail, after completing the final Epsilon mission, from Marnie explaining that the tract collections are available, and clues to find them. Only one tract is available at a time and must be collected in the fixed order given; any player can collect the tracts but only Michael will receive the clues.
The mission is unlocked regardless of Michael's decision in "Unknowing the Truth."
Either due to a glitch or by design, every time the player switches to Michael or loads a game that starts with Michael, he will receive another copy of the most recent tract location clue (in other words, Marnie appears to be spamming him). This can result in Michael's phone being loaded with duplicate messages, especially if he is unable to complete the challenge right away (for example, the second location cannot be accessed until a certain mission is completed and Michael is able to access a certain vehicle).
1. "Kifflom, brother. You are now truly one of us and are ready to write the tract, which has already been written..WE WORSHIP KRAFF WHERE THE EARTH REACHES OUT TO THE 9TH PARADIGM."
2. "Where the first of the fleet succumbed to the waves, there the message is seeded."
Underwater in the bay off the east coast near Palomino Highlands. It's possible to pick the tract without any diving gear if the player have max Lung Capacity, if not, then the best way is to locate a dinghy, which will provide the diving gear. Find the tract on the ocean floor in front of an old sunken paddle steamer. You can also find a briefcase of money, a health kit, and armor around this wreckage.
3. "When they sail from the North, they will find this offering."
Go to the northernmost place in San Andreas, right after Paleto Bay. This tract is atop the northernmost island in the Pacific Ocean. To avoid a long swim, take a helicopter or boat (perhaps the fast-moving dinghy if you're coming straight from #2).
4. "In the core of the mountain, where the blast is not felt, there you shall find it."
In a doorway nook near the middle of the road tunnel that runs through Mount Chiliad in the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness.
5. "In the rubble of the old religion, will be the basis for the new."
6. "Where the first fleet sailed, the new fleet will find its map."
7. "What dwelling is worthy of Kraff? He is humble, yet we exalt him."
In the entrance walkway of the red, castle-like mansion in northwestern Richman.
8. "We are not dinosaurs, or plants, but a tree in the jet stream may hold Kraff's true word."
Next to the highest tree in San Andreas, on top of Mount Chiliad. Next to the tree closest to the telescope platform near the cable car station where #1 was located.
9. "The tallest obelisk of glass and steel holds no comparison to the word of Kraff."
10. "Where they discard their earthly prisons, there you may find the germ of a higher civilization."
Your reward for collecting all Tract collectibles is a complete set of excerpts: "The Epsilon Tract of the 9th Paradigm. Year 157." Marnie emails you a congratulations message after collecting the tenth tract. Open the link in the email to go directly to www.epsilonprogram.com/tract.
The only way to access the tract is through Marnie's link, if the e-mail is deleted, the player won't be able to access the tract.
The Complete Tract
The Epsilon Tract of the 9th Paradigm. Year 157
Chapter 1 Verse 1 - Omega
From Omega to Alpha and back again, and from Z to A. We as a people have consistently got things backwards. I know that now. I am not alive. I am dead. I am not rich, I am poor. I am not from Earth at all.
Contrary to what you know, life is not life at all. It is all an illusion. You are being controlled by lots of powerful forces you do not understand - like gravity. Just as an apple sometimes flies up from a tree and becomes a great Eagle, so what seems like greed can in its own way be the most selfless act of all.
The act of loving only one, the god head, is the act of loving all, the people as god head. That is clear to those who seek, and seek we must and pay we must. Seeking without paying is not living, it is living on the cheap.
Epsilonism is an expensive religion. Only for those with the wisdom to afford it. Wisdom is our most valuable commodity and that is why we pay highly for it.
Chapter 1 Verse 2
To be an Epsilonist is to be rich in powerful tools. Tools are held in the belt by some and in the mind of others. The most powerful tool of all is the tool of manifest generosity towards ideas, and towards the upward. That is, sometimes a peach tree issues forth fire and a great dove becomes born.
That dove is money and the money should be spent by all to achieve manifest generosity, as each paradigm has shown those who understood. And manifest generosity is the god head and being the god head is the movement towards truth form. Truth form is important but it is difficult for the wrong to understand, so ask yourself, am I the right?
And I prove that through my adherence to manifest generosity and by the Eagle and the dove and the peach tree and upward gravity and by understanding, above all, this manifest truth form? Yea, to some this will seem hard to understand but it will be revealed, and to some it will seem hard to understand and it will not be revealed because they did not seek truly because they were the wrong form of bird or topiary. If you seek wisdom, you will pay for it and seeking and paying are the same thing as is understanding, if you want it to be.
Chapter 1 Verse 3
Upwards flows the truth form, and so upward flows manifest generosity, and this is how we become rich. That is, to be generous to those who know the truth form, who truly understand it, and to be upward in our manifest generosity, yes, or yea as Kraff sometimes says meaning much the same, those or those who are truly blessed, who are the right and are known as not just of Kraff, but by Kraff and true to that which Kraff understood. So let yourself know those upwards of you, and be known by them. There is Kifflom and there is Krant, and both be praised through manifest generosity.
Chapter 2 Verse 1 Psi
If you undestand this, you know all things, and if you know all things you are of Kraff, just as Kraff took the form of an Eagle or a peach tree, as the literature has shown and as the tract now makes manifest, likens its generosity, which should be upwards and manifest and like it in truth form, which should be understood.
If you're confused you are wrong, as Kraff made clear, confusion was not merely confusion, but a proof of all that is wrong and if you believe, then nothing is greater than believing completely and believing completly makes you into the peach tree that flows upwards or the apple tree that becomes a dove or the other way around.
Chapter 2 Verse 2
Nothing shows truth form more than upwards generosity and nothing shows wrongness more than doubt. No one is weaker than the questioner. Not one person. Not even a really weak person, without any strength at all. Or a lettuce. Yes, I want to be clear, as clear as the lake in which truth lives, which is another metaphor I will come back to, as Kraff came back for us across Paradigms in this 9th Paradigm, year 157. Hear them speak, oh lovers of arboreal wisdom! Hold on to the peach tree and the apple tree and give all that you have in faith and watch fruits flow upward to a bountiful harvest. He who hungers while others are rich shall someday be rich himself.
Chapter 2 Verse 3
The lake in which truth lives is very clean and clear, but not as clean or clear as it clean and clear that those who have been shown our truth form and have questioned, and have doubted and have not understood are themselves, not in fact the weak, but the Unsaveables. By even thinking a question, you are likening yourself to the volcano that sucks lava into itself and explodes down, causing the entire Paradigm to implode and a mighty race of super beings to be cast adrift into space, as happened once and must never happen again.
Chapter 2 Verse 4
Cast off the cane. Not only does questioning kill you, it also kills everyone you love. It means you do not love them and you wish them to die. That is clear now. To doubt is to wish death on everyone, and that is all the proof you need that the world, the apple tree, the peach tree, the dove and the Eagle are good things, and of Kraff, but there are also many bad things. And those bad things are doubt. And also upwards generosity, is the most bounteous thing of all. And bounteousness is a mirror. A mirror in a lake where truth lives. Drink from this lake and also water the peach tree but do not quench the fire that brings the dove, and do not pick the apple that may one day become an Eagle, a great Eagle who feeds from the lake.
Chapter 3 Verse 1 Chi
Give and you shall receive. As someone else said, but whomever said that was themselves a brilliant man and a friend of Cris, as all brilliant men are, and a fantastic Epsilonist like all the greater thinkers and philosophers and celebrities. The literature has been clear on that, and now the tract makes clear. Indeed, there is a lake where truth lives and in this lake an egg lived and out of that egg came forth a whole world. And that world was this world and this metaphor now ends, and a new one begins. The new metaphor is the tract and the tract is truth and truth form and a few ideas laid down and many left out.
Chapter 3 Verse 2
No seed is wasted, for seeds of man or tree are a lie. The apple tree and the peach tree lie together in the same orchard, yet there are many trees, just as a man of Epsilon must lie with nine new partners a week lest he wither at the vine.
Chapter 3 Verse 3
Land left unplowed goes fallow, for in all things there is an agrarian analogy, for the world was created before television. If a woman does not lie with five upward men of Epsilon a day on the seventh month, the harvest will surely be meager.
Chapter 3 Verse 4
To understand completely is to be complete. That is the central maxim of our knowledge. And knowledge requires no faith. We are not a religion. We are a science and a way of understanding everything. And to know everything is to know that money is your greatest transience and all money should not tie you in a place but free you to give upwards and to not doubt that doing so is the most complete thing you can do and that those who doubt you are death dealers and haters of the Eagle and the dove and the peach tree and the lake of truth and they wish you dead. Cast them from your lives, and cast a line into the lake, for it will feed you.
Chapter 3 Verse 5
Everything was will be and has a cycle, just as a fool who saves his fruit sees it rot, a wise man sends his fruit towards the upwards. You have it in you to be happy, but you are not happy because you are surrounded by people who want you dead because they doubt and in doubting they prove they are Unsaveable, so if you cannot kill them, let them go, and move towards the blue light and the lake and the apple and the other metaphors and away from the empty place in which objection and death unite as one.
Chapter 3 Verse 6
Doubters shall be spaded under and given a chance to serve as a garden for descendants of Kraff. I shall not weep. For tears of salt poison the garden and this is our time of joy.
Chapter 3 Verse 7
Negativity is a double and a single. It is always negative. The point of life is smiling. And nothing makes you smile more than knowing the truth form and the truth form is 157 years old and the great battle between Kraff and the Unsaveables that exists in this paradigm, the 9th paradigm and all preceding paradigms back to the 4th paradigm. This is a battle we must win, just like the end of a movie, including those made by and starring many top celebrities who are themselves Epsilonists, just like most top philosophers and thinkers are. This is a battle we can win.
Chapter 4 Verse 1 Upsilon
Upward generosity and acknowledgment of the truth form are to us as truth is to the lake and gravity is to the apple tree and fire is to water and doubt is to the Unsaveable. Previous ideas have been spoken by all of the great men of carbon who were often secret Epsilonists, although unrevealed until this moment. None are dead. They sit with Cris in physical or cerebral form and the space travel is complete, both across paradigms and withim your Earth time, year 157. This is the tract. It was always writtem. It was never writtem.
Chapter 4 Verse 2
We are all from the same tree. Yet no one shall believe that a winged lizard could fly or a man with hair the color of a rose does not bring doom with lies. This is a true as the evil of doubt.
Chapter 4 Verse 3
Just as a man and a woman make water differently, they shall not do it in the marital bed or on one another unless they that are upwards within the hierarchy demands it, and even then not often. Hierarchy is all and upwards generosity is all. Look upwards and see the stars. This is a kingdom, the kingdom of Kraff, ruled by Cris, and there are servants and disciples, and the Unsaveables who become fertilizer. That is a new metaphor that will carry into the next Paradigm, wherever it shall lie, even onto bumper stickers. For that which has higher meaning must be told in all manner possible, by oracles, by brother to brother, and condensed into phrases that others need understand while trapped in traffic and seeking escape.
Chapter 4 Verse 4
Those who doubt do not get to lie with new partners, instead they will ne cooked in the death they bring upon themselves. Indeed the worst they imagine through doubt is what they will get. Like being raped by a bull-form or a being the last station in a nasty prison train, or watching everyone they know have a joyful orgy and they are not invited nor have you been invited.
That is what doubters get. Nothing but bad things, including being raped by animals and not going to orgies. There should be no need to repeat that a third time. The peach tree talks and the apple tree talks, you hear them and you know. You do not hear them and you know you are a doubter and an Unsaveable.
Chapter 4 Verse 5
Your earth partner is to be cherished and therefore shared with the utmost generosity upwards like all things. And what is upward generosity? That we shall come to, once we have once more focused upon the work of the Unsaveables, and that work is questioning and doubting. It is not the scientific way to doubt. Let that be made clear. It is the way of the thorn bush or cactus. They are not trees. They do not speak. Not even a little bit.
Chapter 4 Verse 6
The cactus only grows from sand. Sand makes an earth partner, for from sand comes glass that forms the pitcher of truth from the lake that holds a cutting from the peach tree. And once the earth partner becomes like the cactus they must be cast out and a newer younger earth partner shall take their place.
Chapter 5 Verse 1 Tau
Only the apple tree and the peach tree speak. These are the trees we came from and they are the same tree. Peaches are in fact apples and they are the tree that was in the lake that was in the egg that was near the Eagle that I mentioned up above.
Chapter 5 Verse 2
The mark of Kraff adorns many who are blessed. Some descendants of Kraff have a mark of birth that adorns the elbow, or buttocks, but he who has the stain of wine on his head or face - they drink with Kraff in the 4th Paradigm.
Chapter 5 Verse 3
Do not forget about the dove. The dove is the dove of love and of truth that is an old metaphor and one that unites all knowledge under Epsilonism, and like all who pursue truth and love he does so not just by manifesting upward generosity but also by killing Unsaveables in the great fight between Kraff and his enemies that has gone on for paradigms. In the 4th paradigm it was energy. In the fifth paradigm it was fire. In the 6th paradigm it was the love of ignorance and the Eagle.
In the 7th it was the great dispute in which Unsaveables learnt to take the form of conflicted reason. In the 8th, it was amnesia. In the 9th it is within the being form - that is the red, and he with red and of red in the hair form is not of Kraff and he is the embodiment of that which is Unsaveable. All of these paradigms will be revealed to you through upwards generosity. Their meaning shall be made clear as your role in the great battles will be made clear. Nothing is truer to the dove of love than killing Unsaveables.
Chapter 5 Verse 4
And what is this thing of which you speak? What is this upwards generosity? It is the most precious thing, the giving to those who do not need, so cannot be challenged for greed, who have so much they do not need any more and therefore can receive your gift kindly and with the truth form and with understanding that is everything.
It is the gift towards Cris, to Cris, or to any senior Epsilonists who are his form in your life as all senior Epsilonists are the same spirit and mind form in this aradigm, as the Eagle is the peach tree and the other metaphors also become blurred. It is by asking Cris to receive that we ourselves get the most. That is the clearest thing.
Chapter 5 Verse 5
And if not Cris then the program itself for the program knows truth and by paying for truth we guarantee its veracity. Just like the top celebrities and great thinkers who are open Epsilonists and many others whom you do not know are Epsilonists but happily triple tithe their upward generosity as they owe everything to the Program and acknowledge this. Triple tithing makes a truth form more true.
Chapter 5 Verse 6
Nothing is more than giving all that you have including that which you do not yet have, like loans or mortgages or indeed that which has been taken by Unsaveables and must be taken from them. The world of this paradigm belongs to us, and so return it to us. By giving it to Cris, he will save it for all of us. By knowing us, he knows all. By saving us, he saves all who can be saved. Here ends the first part of the tract of the 9th paradigm. Kifflom.
