It's not end of world, it is the end of HIStory.

For the records, we are the first author and websites to claim that it's not the end of world at year 2012, it is the end of history, exactly the end of HIStory.   Also, we already had Wugine Sand, as the first black President in White House in our story, since year 2001. Yes, there is a female President too. 

This is a comics story of 3d animation movies, has nothing to do with religious discussion' or cultureal comparison, or any religion ' culture related issues. It's only a dream between superheros from the earth, life is but a dream.

The story is really simple, knowing that Monkey King is too powerful to be beaten, Green Fish sneaked into his dream and made him dreaming about his West Journey teammates (including himself) come to futur 2020 America and reach out their American Dream then fallen into all kind of dangerous cituation. Monkey King was never realized that he was dreaming, not awared that Green Fish was watching and waiting to the fatal strikes when he finally seeing Monkey King had totoally lost control because of his American dream story... ...

Then, who is Monkey King? who is Green Fish? Why and how he made him fallen into the future miror and never realized he was actually dreaming? we have all the answers and details from 3 pre-story and one historical event which happened over 1,600 years ago.

Do you really need to learn the pre-story to enjoy our [American West Journey 2020] ?

The Dream Manipulator came from [West Journey Supplement 1640], 400 years ago.

Basically, This is only a Monkey King's American dream.

Because Monkey King is too powerful to be killed, so Green Fish sneaked and manipulated his dreaming about his West Journey teammates are all come to 2020 America.

While Monkey King is losing himself on seeing his teammates (including himself) are getting all kind of dream coming true and end up with fatal danger, Green FIsh is waitng and watching aside his sleep, try to hit the fatal attack in Monkey King's most lost control moment...

The whole story happens in Monkey King's dream, and Monkey King doesn't even know that he is dreaming. NOt knowing Green Fish is wating to kill him...

And do you really need to know who is Monkey King? Who is Green Fish? Why they are fighting each other? (It's all in Pre-Story, happened over 1,500 years ago.)

No, you can try just go to chapter00, preface of our [American West Journey].

Ever since I took this project to work with some Writer's Group, Hollywood now has some movies released about the Dream Manipulator. Even their movies published before mine, I still need to say:" Green Fish, the Dream Manipulator's story doesn't come from my [American West Journey 2020], he came from [West Journey Supplement 1640], 400 years ago.

Dream on, and be dream vigilant: Not only  it’s  to be manipulated, but also  you may be unaware of if it’s real life or true dream. Yes, There is a big fish watching and waiting to strike fatally as soon as you have decided that you are living in a dream.

The entire story [American West Journey] unfolds in Monkey King's American Dream

The entire story [American West Journey] unfolds in Monkey King's American Dream, the time and space turned into 21st century's earth capital, Los Angeles. the story begin with the sharking BIG ONE, Los Angeles earthquake.

And Mackerel Spirit was diabolizing inside Monkey King's dream. He lured Monkey King to dream about his teammates (Dragon' Pigsy' Sandy' and Xúan-Zhùang) visiting America 2012. Each character entered different regions of America, through "Future Mirror", which serves as a portal for their journey. Why at 2012 ? because it's the year of L.A. earthquake, the BIG ONE.

To diabolize and paralyze Monkey King in dream, the time and space were disorder and overturned. Mackerel let Monkey King develop his desire and let it go wild in his dreams. He then planned to corrupt him while he was going deeper and deeper in his self-indulgent dream. All kind of American Dreams (White Dragon become movie star  in Hollywood, Pigsy owned his own casino, Sandy painted the White House brown, Xúan-Zhùang had 2 wives, Monkey King lost then rescue his son... etc.) happened in Monkey King's fancy dream which may get him killed in the end when he suddenly realize that it could be a make-believe dream?

Not aware of the Lust Demon had sneaked into his dream, Monkey King gradually lost himself while all the stories and situations keep HAPPENING.

Mackerel Spirit still didn't dare to throw the dreadful attack yet, he kept to demagogue Monkey King seeing all the fascinating and luxury situations occurred on his teammates.

Mackerel Spirit needed to wait until Monkey King was getting involved deeper and deeper’ eventually unable to extricate himself out from Illusory territory.

Therefore, the whole story was actually a battle of wits betweenMonkey King and Green Fish.

Dream on, or wake up ?

Monkey King was brave and resourceful, with super power and spell of high-strength, that no one could match, but, he was doomed to lose since the beginning already, because he did not know he had been in the dream all the time. Moreover, he did not know that Green Fish stay so tight to manipulate dreams to his blurred fantasy.

For the worst of all, he did not know, not only await, as in the side to manipulate his dream, that his enemy was using a fatal blow at any time when he was paralyzed or be awaken over these nightmares of wild dream.

And Monkey King never believe in God, deep down in his soul, he was always believe that he is the greatest that he should take over to rule the Heaven, so, there wouldn't be no God or any super spirits come to save or help him, never such in his dream. 

Still, Monkey King is the Monkey King!

While his sleeping mind was lost in a disorder future time and an overturned space, his dreaming soul was chaotic upside down, his wandering spirits would take chance to tell him: The sky is green! It's FISHY somewhere!

Wake up! Because nothing is real, he is manipulating your dream.

Don't wake up! Because he is waiting for the moment to kill you...

Monkey King's American Dream: To Save Monkey Prince.

That's it. If you want to read more detail, please read on.

http://www.americanwestjourney.com/preStory.html

The original novel [Journey To The West] was based on historical fact of Xúan-Zhùang 玄奘 seeking Buddhist scriptures in the West during the Tάng Dynasty.

Xúan-Zhùang was born in 596 A.D. in the Súi隋  Dynasty 581-618. He became a monk at age 13 in 600 A.D.

Back in 250 A.D., Monk Zhu Shihang pioneered to Xin-Jiang (Northwestern border of China) to collect the Buddhist scriptures. In 627 A.D., Xúan-Zhùang violated the prohibition and ventured to the West. In a span of more than 300 years, 105 monks in 35 groups went west in search of the Buddhist scriptures. Out of these adventurists, 30 eventually reached India and returned to China.

Xúan-Zhùang came back to Cháng-An, the Capital at age 50, in the spring of 645 A.D. Having completed a journey of 25,000 Km, he brought back 520 kinds of Buddhist scriptures in 657 parts. He died in 664 A.D.

A thousand years passed, Xúan-Zhùang's expedition was so popular that he had become a deified figure in China. As early as in the South Song 南宋 1127-1279 and the Yúan Dynasty 元 1279-1368, subjects related to Monk Tάng going West appeared frequently in stage plays. In the novel [Stories of The Monk Collecting Scriptures In the Tάng Dynasty  大唐玄奘取經平話], the author altered the historical fact by claiming that Xúan-Zhùang had gone West following an imperial order instead of violating the prohibition.

In Yúan Dynasty, stories of Monkey King also appeared in plays such as [Monk Tάng 唐三藏], [Party On The Fairy Pond 瑤池會], and [Party Of Fairy Peaches 蟠桃會]. By 1500 A.D., in the Míng Dynasty 明 1368-1644, [JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊記] came out. It had resulted from a combination of folk stories, stage plays, and the classical novel [Accounts of Journey To The West].

In our American WJ series, we don't call him Monk Táng, always give his original name Xúan玄-Zhùang奘, also, we refer all the fictiones' novels' drama related [Journey to the West] as [West Journey] all the way.

As [Journey to the West], we refer it only to Xúan-Zhùang 玄奘's historical event.

629

Xúan-Zhùang, became a monk when he was 13. 

Chéng, Hui 陳 褘 was his name before he became a monk (Hui means 'ceremonial robe of empress worn in time of sacrifice'). Jiang-Liú 江流 was his child pet name (Jiang meaning river, Liú means flowing).

That Monk Táng (Xúan-Zhùang) actually had a fiancee' was actually a known fact to people in his hometown, Stories go that as a young boy, Hui Chéng (Xúan-Zhùang was his monk name) had married 徐 香 真 Xiang-Zhen (meaning fragrance-truth) , daughter of his mother's bosom friend Xú. 

(Qín Emperor had chained most of young men to build the Great Wall, then Súi Emperor had slaved whole country's men to dig the tunnel rivers flowing countrywide, to avoid these kind of labor, kids got married very young in those ages.)

 

A cock that was part of Xúan-Zhùang's wife's trousseau, was scratching in Xúan-Zhùang's garden in his wedding. It found the Leggy Centipede's nest and ate all her offspring. The cock was about to eat the Leggy Centipede herself, but instead of hiding beneath a stone, Leggy Centipede saved herself with merge into a fallen Ti-Yi crystal. Afterward, she took it, learned the secret of its magic, and used it to make herself immortal.

Xúan-Zhùang's wedding firecrackers killed Centipede's whole family.

Centipede put a curse on Xúan-Zhùang's wedding. She always wait to perform  the fireworks in Xúan-Zhùang's wedding night.

 

At age 13, the couple went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south. Xiang-Zhen was kidnapped on the spot. (So Xiang-Zhen should always call Xúan-Zhùang by his child pet name Jian-Liú, u pronunciation in 2nd tone).

 

Tormented by this loss, Xúan-Zhùang wandered into the Temple Of Pure Earth where he became a monk. 

17 years later on his way to the West, Xiang-Zhen suddenly emerged. Failing to persuade Xúan-Zhùang to resume a secular life, Xiang-Zhen swore to wait for him forever. 

Words from Yáng-Fú 楊福 (茯) :

Wú Chéng-En 吳承恩's [Journey to the West 1570] named Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 as Monk Táng , but we named him back as Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 , also, we named Wú's novel and all the related media production [Journey to the West].as [West Journey].

We refer "Journey to the West" as the historical event of Xúan玄-Zhùang奘.

Those stories of Monk Táng from Chapter 8 to 13 is a total disgrace disaster to Xúan玄-Zhùang奘, which made Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 the most unuseful character in the story.

Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 never carry any last name of Táng in his Journey To The West !

In our [American West Journey 2020] we discard of those non-senses and give Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 back his real life and character as followings:

That Monk Táng (Xúan-Zhùang 600-664) actually had a fiancee' was actually a known fact to people in his hometown, Stories go that as a young boy,
Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 (meaning Unreliable-Strong) was his monk name, originally secular named Chén陳-Hui褘 (Chén was his family name, Hui means 'ceremonial robe of empress worn in time of sacrifice'). His child pet name was Jiang-Liú 江流 .(means river-flowing).  He got married when he was 12 years old. Xiang香-Zheng真(means Fragrant- Purity) was 6 years older than him, daughter of his mother's bosom friend Xú. 

(Qín Emperor had slaveried his people and chained most of young men to build the Great Wall, then at Year 605, Emperor Súi Yáng-Dì requisitioned for millions of laborer working on cut and dig canals. He had slaved whole country's men to dig the tunnel rivers flowing countrywide, in the next 7 years, the canals cut over 40 foots in width, connected two of the largest nationwide rivers flowing all over whole country.

To avoid  those kind of coolies slavery and military conscription, kids got married very young in those ages, ever since Qín Dynasty. )

What they did in their wedding day? They were fooling around in the garden, there were lots of domesticated fowls from her trousseau, and they end up with chasing a big rooster across the fence and trees, laughing louder than the fowls.  In the wedding night, they lighted the fire-crackers into the ground, the rooster followed them and ate all the insects exposed. 

The cock that was part of Xúan-Zhùang's wife's trousseau, was scratching in Xúan-Zhùang's garden in his wedding. It found the Leggy Centipede's nest and ate all of her offspring.

The cock was about to eat the Leggy Centipede herself, but instead of hiding beneath a stone, Leggy Centipede saved herself with merge into a fallen Ti-Yi crystal. Afterward, she took it, learned the secret of its magic, and used it to make herself immortal.

The Centipede escaped the massacre and hided into one Tài-Yǐ crystal, learn and gained the Tài-Yǐ magic power, become a supernatural and cursed Xúan-Zhùang's wedding night with the fireworks explosions. She always wait to perform  the fireworks in Xúan-Zhùang's wedding night, even that he has already become a monk.

At age 13, the couple went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south. Xiang-Zhen was kidnapped on the spot. (So Xiang-Zhen should always call Xúan-Zhùang by his child pet name Jian-Liú, ú pronunciation in 2nd tone).

Tormented by this loss, Xúan-Zhùang wandered into the Temple Of Pure Earth where he became a monk. 

17 years later on his way to the West, Xiang-Zhen suddenly emerged. Failing to persuade Xúan-Zhùang to resume a secular life, Xiang-Zhen swore to wait for him forever. 

If you think this is too much pre-story to read, let me tell you the emphasis: Durling the battle in Flame Mountain, Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tealeaves. Once he got into Iron-Fan Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. 

Then, in Chapter00Preface, the very begining of our [American West Journey], Iron-Fan Princess wakes up Dr. Sun, whose face look exactly like Monkey King' got the same last name' doesn't realized that he has been killed by the earthquake.

The Princess asks Dr.Sun to delivery her new-born baby to the father.

And she won't tell who is the father.

And, the subtitle of our [American West Journey] is:

Monkey King's American Dream: To Save Monkey Prince.

That's it. If you want to read more detail, please read on.

 

 

[West Journey 1570]: Xúan-Zhùang's expedition become a deified figure from eastern world to west. After thousand years of these deified stories, Xúan-Zhùang wasn't travel alone anymore. 4 superheroes (Monkey King, Pigsy, Friar Sand and White Dragon) helped him to complete the [West Journey] mission, eventually [West Journey] become the most famous ancient novel in the world.  

[Flame Mountain] is the most popular chapter 59-61 in [West Journey 1570]: Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tealeaves. Once he got into Iron-Fan Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. 

[Flame Mountain]:

From chapter 59 to 61, Monk Tάng and his team stopped at Flame Mountain, where they saw no trace of living things. The whole mountain was covered by fire. To pass through, they had to borrow the palm-leaf fan belonging to Princess Iron Fan, wife of Ox King.

Unfortunately, Monkey King had earlier captured their son, the Red Child, whom Budhisattva had taken in as a finance boy. The Princess remembered that incident and therefore refused to lend them the fan. Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. However, she gave him a phony one. Monkey King was almost burned half dead by trying to quell the flames by the phony fan.

After the second and third try, Princess Iron-Fan and Ox King had to surrender their fan. Monkey King took the fan and waved 49 times on Flame Mountain. The fire was gone immediately. Rain replaced fire, moisture replaced dryness. Walking on the smooth paths, Monk Tάng and his team easily passed through the mountain and continued their journey westward.

The most popular fiction in the oriental world is Wú's novel called, [Journey to the West ].

We refer "Journey to the West" as the historical event of Xúan玄-Zhùang奘.

Around 1570, [JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊記] came out. It had resulted from a combination of folk stories, stage plays, and the classical novel [Accounts of Journey To The West]. Wú Chéng-En 吳承恩 edited and rewrote them into 100 chapters.

Chapter 1 to 7 focuses on the origin of Monkey King 孫猴王 conceived by a fairy stone in the Flower-Fruit Mountain 花果山, he was a stone monkey living under the sea of Aó Lai2 State 敖來州, part of the divine land Dong Sheng4.

Later, Monkey King had to be pressed under Wu3-Hang2 Mountain 五行山 for 500 years for stirring up trouble in the heavenly palace..

Chapter 8 to 13 tells stories of Monk Táng 唐僧. Originally called Xúan玄-Zhùang奘, Táng was nicknamed the Golden Cicada in his previous life. While he was a student of Buddha, he displayed an imprudent attitude toward him. For that reason, Buddha demoted Táng to the Eastern Region, where he was parented by a top scholar Chén Guang-rui and a minister's daughter Ying Wen-Jiao. Táng became a monk as a child. Following an imperial order, Tάng set off for the West to collect the scriptures from Cháng-An. When he encountered demons in Gong State, Venus rescued him. While crossing the Two-Bordered Mountain, "the Mighty Man" Liú Bó-Qing 劉伯欽 saved him from tigers.

In chapter 20 and 21, Marten Spirit came to hide on Mountain Yellow Wind. In chapter 22, Friar Sand 沙僧 disappeared in Flowing Sands River. Like Pigsy, Monk Sand also used to be a general. He was demoted onto the earth and fell into Flowing Sands River for breaking the crystal glass roof at the Fairy Peach Party. His Buddhist name was "Trying To Comprehend Purity 悟淨".

In chapter 23, Monk Tάng and his team passed through the border of Xiniuhe. Widow Mo married off her daughters, and Pigsy was lured and hanged.

In chapter 56, Monkey King punished the bandits and got expelled by Monk Táng. In chapter 57, the false Monkey King stole the package and scapegoated the true Monkey King. In Chapter 58, the true and the false
Monkey Kings confronted each other. Boddha distinguished the true from the false.

From chapter 59 to 61, Monk Tάng and his team stopped at Mountain Flame, where they saw no trace of living things. The whole mountain was covered by fire. To pass through, they had to borrow the palm-leaf fan belonging to Princess Iron Fan, wife of Ox King.

Unfortunately, Monkey King had earlier captured their son, the Red Child, whom Budhisattva had taken in as a finance boy. The Princess remembered that incident and therefore refused to lend them the fan. Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tea leaves.

Monkey King was almost burned half dead by trying to quell the flames by the phony
fan.

Monkey King changed into the form of Ox King and came to the residence of the Princess. There he fooled her and got hold of the real fan. However, he only obtained the incantation on how to enlarge the size of the fan, but forgot to get the codes for reducing the size. Consequently, Monkey King had to carry the fan on his back. On his way home, unfortunately, he met Ox King, who appeared as Pigsy and tricked him into returning the fan.

Finally, Monkey King and Ox King had a big battle. Following the order of the Jade Emperor, Buddhist and Heaven troops came onto the earth and intervened.

Monkey King took the fan and waved 49 times on Flame Mountain. The fire was gone immediately. Rain replaced fire, moisture replaced dryness. Walking on the smooth paths, Monk Tάng and his team easily passed through the mountain and continued their journey westward.

Friar Sand & Tài-Yǐ crystals

Friar Sand used to be Convolution General in Tài-Yǐ Temple. He was demoted onto the earth and fell into Flowing-Sand River for breaking Ti-Yi lantern (which was able to monitor the past and future of earth) on the crystal glass roof at the Fairy Peach Party, while Monkey King agitating the battle in southern sky, General Convolution was supposed to together his troop, and to join the battalion just to capture the stone Monkey King who happened to decide that he should be the new Emperor of Sky.  

The Tài-Yǐ lantern dropped out of his palm and the crystal pieces drop out of the Tài-Yǐ Palace, down to the earth, planted to be the Tài-Yǐ mine under earth. (Dr.Sun's grate grand father as a miner during California gold rush, found the Tài-Yǐ crystal  and gave it to his son. In the last generation, Dr.Sun invented and developed the Smart Computer with his co-worker Dr.Robert, sold it to White House as the top national secret. ) 

Monkey King' Friar Sand' Pigsy and White Dragon were later punished to be Monk Xúan-Zhùang's disciples for West Journey mission.  

[Friar Sand & Tài-Yǐ crystals] :

Long time ago in the underworld, Yama's promoted Friar Sand to be the hell angel among his Rakshasa group. Without the earth body, the faces were never important among the ghosts and Rakshasa, All souls of ghost were fading and exhausting in hell's forever nights, the recycle of metempsychosis once was whirligig so fast that he and his co-angels had almost clean out ghost population in their duty zone, he was promoted to the heaven's Convolution General in Tài-Yǐ Temple.


Then he broke the Tài-Yǐ crystal lantern in the temple. It was an accident, Monkey King agitated the battle in south heaven, General Convolution was supposed to together his troop, and to join the battalion just to capture the stone monkey who happened to decide that he should be the Emperor of the Heaven. The Tài-Yǐlantern dropped out of his palm and the crystal pieces drop out of the Tài-Yǐ Palace, down to the earth, planted to be the Tài-Yǐmine under earth.


He was demoted down to be the Friar Sand in the Flowing Sands River; he was sentenced to wait there until he got called to serve the West Journey. He was waiting for the monk in those forever nights of sands of streams.

After hundred of years, he saw the first guy who try to cross the Flowing Sands River.

Friar Sand decided that the guy was not the monk to get him out to the journey; he stayed very far to observe the human drown into the sand.

When he saw the guy came in with the same face again, he started to count the earth years and figure out there was a palingenesis going on the guy. He had decided that the guy was never the calling for his West Journey Mission, so he still stay very far and watching him drowned.

The guy came again, same face, dressed and prayed like a friar this time. Friar Sand did not answer his pray to appear to save him.

The fourth time, the fifth time, the guy with the same face kept coming in and each time would start to dress as a monk.


Friar Sand decided it's a comeuppance for the guy, but nevertheless he dived to the bottom of the river to collect the guy's skulls, and he started to form the guy's face on his earthling body.


When Xúan-Zhùang came to the river accompany with fellowship of Monkey King SUN-WÙ-KONG (meaning "Pondering on emptiness")' White Dragon and Pigsy Wù-Néng (meaning "Searching for Abilities"), Friar Sand had nine shrunken skulls hanging on his necklace. the skulls were so small that nobody would think it's only walnut nuts.

Xúan-Zhùang gave him a disciple name as Sand-Wù-Jìng (meaning "Trying to Comprehend Purity "). He used to be the oldest angel from hell angel to Heaven General, now he becomes the youngest disciple in the fellowship for the West Journey mission.

Emphasis: After they left Flame Mountain, Green Fish sneaks in and manipulates Monkey King's dream while he is napping.

The story of [West Journey 1570] was so successful that most novelists tried to outdo Wu's version, but to no avail until Dông Shuo's [West Journey Supplement 1640] was published 70 years later.  

[West Journey Supplement 1640]: The plots are continued from [West Journey]'s [Flame Mountain]. Green Fish keeps Monkey King away from his West Journey team by making him sleeping and dreaming into Future Mirror.   

Future Mirror :

Chapter 10 is titled [Returning To The Thousand-Mirror Labyrinth 萬鏡臺行者重歸; Monkey King Rescued Himself At Ge-Jing Palace 葛藟宮悟空自救.] Monkey King put Qin Gui into a calabash and turned him into thick liquid. He then offered the liquid to General Yuè Fei for the redress of frame-up. Yuè rebuffed the invitation and said scornfully that even half a bite of the trator's flesh would make his body stink for half a year.

Monkey King took off his robe and left the Gate of Hell for the Mystery World. There he met a self-claimed "New Ancient 新古人" who could not go back into Ancient World, had to stay and open a restaurant business.
Monkey King then asked him how could he return to Blue Green World so that he could continue accompanying Monk Tάng to the Western Journey. The New Ancient answered: "Trace your way back. The way you came is the way you leave." He pushed Monkey King as his last word fell.

The push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 美國西遊記].

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY To THE WEST 西遊補] comprises 16 chapters. The novel follows chapter 61 [Gaining the Palm Leaf Fan On 3rd Try] from the original [Journey To The West 西遊記]. The enlarged version was written by Dông Shuo 董說, master of Serenity House.

Dông came from a declining wealthy family in Hú Zhou, Zhè-Jiang Province. His father wrote poems for a living. Dông was orphaned in boyhood when his father died at age 42.

In 1640, Dông completed [The Enlarged Version of JOURNEY TO THE WEST] at age 20. He became a monk at age 33. In the same year, General Zhang Xian-Zhong occupied Si4-Chuang Province while Li3 Zi4-Cheng2 took control of He2-Nan2. 4 years later, the Qing Dynasty 清(1644-1911) replaced the Míng Dynasty (1368-1644). In his life time, Dong wrote 120 books many of which were burned by him. Had his sons not begged him in great sorrow, all of his books would have become ashes.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] follows the story line of the original novel. After Monk Tάng and his team passed through Mountain Flame, they rested under a peony tree, where they encounter the most vicious demon- Mackerel Spirit, the "Lust Demon" 鯖魚精.

Where did Mackerel Spirit originate? At the beginning of life, light substances rose to the sky, heavy substances formed the earth. The in-betweens, humans, settled on the earth. The near-light substances and the least heavy substances gathered in the Flower-Fruit Mountain 花果山, which created Monkey King 孫悟空. The near heavy substances and the least light substances congregated in the Little Moon Cave 小月洞, which created Mackerel Spirit. Monkey King and Mackerel Spirit were born at exactly the same moment, same day, same month and same year. However, Monkey King represented righteousness and Mackerel Spirit symbolized evilness.

Mackerel Spirit's capacity overwhelmed Monkey King's by 10 times. He had a huge body with its head and feet stretching from Mountain Kunlun to the star of Mystery. He claimed himself the "Blue Green World
青青世界" and exercised great power of manipulation.

Mackerel Spirit was actually a spirit of desire, often appearing in invisible forms. It had potentials of attacking anyone during his various emotional states: sad, happy or hesitant. It could also attack anyone from a distance. Once the desire attached itself on someone, it would remain there eternally.

In [Journey To The West 西遊記] all the demons displayed a common goal, that is, to kill Monk Tάng and eat his flesh. However, In [The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] Mackerel Spirit adapted different strategies as to how to achieve the same goal. He knew that to get Monk Táng, he'd have to eliminate Monkey King, the most powerful aide to Monk Táng. Being aware that it wasn't easy to attack Monkey King when he was sober, Markevel Spirit planned to sneak into his dream and take advantage of his sexual desire. Once aroused, Monkey King would indulge in passionate imagination and sexual pleasure, which would make him a vulnerable victim.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] emphasizes Monkey King's dreams and his sextual desire. Chapter 1 is titled [The Poeny Tree Red, Mackerel Spirit Exhales Around 牡丹紅鯖魚吐氣;
Condoling Lament Dead, Monkey King Mourns Dreams 送冤文猴聖留連.] As the team moved away from Mountain Flame, they stopped at a mountain path covered by fallen flowers. A peony tree immediately caught
everyone's attention.

While Monkey King was admiring the bright colors of the peony. Monk Tάng commented that the peony wasn't red, Monkey King's thought was; Fallen flowers were no different from unblossomed ones.

Just then, a group of youngsters emerged and provoked them. Being free from passion, Monkey King killed all of them. A while later, he turned compassionate and wrote a message of condolence. Then he felt confused and let his dream sneak in.

Chapter 2 is titled [Western Way Phantom New Tάng Dynasty 西方路幻出新唐; In the Green Jade Palace Meeting The Unsurpassed Finesse Emperor 緣玉殿風華天子.] In the dream, Monkey King was trying
to beg some food for the team, a Tάng castle stood in front of him. He was puzzled by the new emperor and the change of direction.

Monkey King asked the Gnomes, but he got no reply; he tried to find out from the Heaven God, but failed once again. Finally Monkey King went to Heaven and requested to see the Jade Emperor- he was confused entrance. The reason being, he had stolen Ling2-Xiao Palace, therefore, there was no gate left. Disappointed, Monkey King had to return to the Green Jade Palace.

The 3rd chapter is titled [Peach-Blossom Edict Rewards Monk Tάng 桃花鉞詔頒玄奘; Chopped-Sky Chisel Amazes Monkey King 鑿天斧驚動心猿] The new emperor appointed Monk Tάng to the position of Command-In-Chief.

Monkey saw the Tάng Dynasty which was not supposed to appear in the western journey, then the confused Monkey King caught the sight of 500 troops splitting the sky with axes. He overheard them talking about
Monk Táng, who had entered the Green World and the Little Moon King, who wanted to present Monk Tάng half of the Green World as a gift for the two had been a couple in their previous lives. Since Monk Tάng insisted to go West for the scriptures, the Little Moon King had ordered these troops to clear all the path toward the Jade Emperor's Palace to collect the scriptures.

Unfortunately, the troops deviated from the right direction and mistakenly destroyed Ling2-Xiao Palace. The heaven held Monkey King responsible for the invasion; the earth also attributed Monkey King's killing of the youngsters to this accident. Thus Monkey King became a scapegoat.

The 4th chapter is titled [Entering the Labyrinth Of Thousands Of Mirror when a thought occurs 一竇開時迷萬鏡; Losing oneself when others appear 物形現處我形亡.] Monkey King concluded that this Little Moon
King must be a demon. so he rose up and bumped into a castle, which turned out to be the Green World. Once inside, Monkey King saw no signs of living creatures. He became angry and poked about randomly.

Suddenly, Monkey King hit a green stone and fell down at a bright entrance. What stood in front of him was a glazed pagoda walled by precious mirrors, about ten thousand of them. The mirrors differed in sizes and shapes. Among them were the Heavenly King Animal Button Mirror, White Jade Heart Mirror, Self-Doubt Mirror, Flower Mirror, Wind Mirror, Male and Female Mirror, Purple Silk Lotus Mirror, Water Mirror, Ice Plat-Form Mirror, Iron-Faced Lotus Mirror, Self Mirror, People Mirror, Moon Mirror, South Sea Mirror, Queen's Mirror, Green Lock Mirror, Serenity Mirror, Black Mirror, Bronze Mirror, Parrot Mirror, Silence Mirror, Image Mirror, First Queen's Mirror, One Smile Mirror, Pillow Mirror, Scenery Gone Mirror, Flight Mirror...

Monkey King was fun-loving. He wanted to see thousands of reflections in the mirrors. Strange enough, when he tried, he saw Liú Bó-Qing 劉伯欽, who once rescued him on Wu-hang Mountain. Liu informed Monkey
King that the whole world was controlled by the mirrors each of which had its designated realm of reign. The mirror pagoda was nick-named "Three Thousand Worlds of a Big Thousand Worlds"... Before he could continue, an old lady appeared and dragged Liu away.

Uncontested, Monkey King had to start with a few mirrors by himself. The pan excellence mirror displayed a scene during publishment of candidates of the imperial examinations.

In front of the announcement board of examination result, the crowd became wild and restless, bustles and weeps, mingled with curses.

Some sat still, some broke their ink slabs, some ran around and were chased and beaten by their parents and teachers. Some burned their musical instruments and cried their hearts out. Some paced up and down and immersed in reading their own papers. Some laughed hysterically and stroke the tables, some comforted the failed by offering a brothel visit...

Those who became candidates either changed into new outfits or tried to conceal their happiness, or wrote on the walls, or condemned the examiners for others' failure, or forced the onlookers to read their names on the list, or talked volubly, or bragged about their predictive dreams the previous night.

Chapter 5 is titled [Carved Blue Mirror Dragged Monkey King Back To Ancient Times; 鏤青鏡心猿入古; Sun-Wừ-Kong frowned At The Green Pearl Pagoda 綠珠樓行者攢眉.] While examining the second par excellence mirror, Monkey King saw a stele carved with the words "Ancient World". He wanted to obtain the Mountain Banishing Bell from the Emperor of the Qin Dynasty 秦 BC 221-206 so that the bell could flatten the journey to the West. Monkey King was so absorbed in the thought that he merged into the mirror.

Chapter 6 is titled [Real Beauty Was Killed Over False's tears 半面淚痕真美死; Chu Emperor Was Worried For The Offer Of second girl friend 一句蘋香楚將愁.] Chapter 7 is titled [Chu3 Emperror Tells Stories Over Midnight 秦楚之際四聲鼓; True And False Beauties Appear In One Mirror 真假美人一鏡中.]

The Ancient Mirror showed a banquet scene entertained by ancient beauty Luzhu, Xishi and Sisi. Monkey King planned to disguise as a maid to get in, but he lost control and turned into Yuji, wife of Chu Emperor.

From the stories Chu had told him, Monkey King found out that Qin Emperor was staying in the Mystery World, located in front of the Future Mirror 未來鏡. When they strolled to the Jade Gate, Monkey King broke away and rolled into the Future Mirror.

Chapter 8 is titled [Eliminating Six Thieves In Future Mirror 一入未來除六賊; Passing Judgement While Being Yama For Half Day 半日閻羅決正邪.] Chapter 9 is titled [Trator Qin2 Gui4 Couldn't Atone For His Crime 秦檜百身難自贖; Monkey King Swore Allegiance To General Yuè Fei 大聖一心皈穆王.]

In the Future Mirror, Monkey King killed the six thieves who intended to rob Yuji, disguised by Monkey King. Two young boys stopped him and told him about Yama's sudden death, then dragged him into the Gate of
Hell act as temporary Yama until the new Yama arrived. In Yama's Court, Monkey King brought the minister of the South Song Dynasty 南宋 1127-1279 Qin2 Gui4 秦檜 to trial.

Qin had send a gold plate 12 times in the name of Song Emperor to call back General Yuè Fei 岳飛, who was fighting enemy in the front line. Later on, Qin killed Yue Fei and caused the collapse of the South Song Dynasty in the hands of the enemy. Up to the present, all Chinese address Qin "The Traitor" for this historical fact.

Monkey King made Qin climb the mountain of swords and plunge into an oil-boiling pan. Then he had Qin cut into pieces and grinded into ashes. Afterward, he brought Qin back to normal and started the cycle over. In addition, Monkey King ordered 150 iron-faced ghosts to insert 6 million needles into Qin's body.

Finally, to compensate for his treacherous deeds of sending 12 gold plates to withdraw General Yuè Fei, Monkey King announced that Qin2 should be carved 12 times. The first time, he was carved in fish scale style. The second time, he was carved in water waves. The third time, snow flakes. When the fourth time began, General Yuè Fei 岳飛 arrived at the Court.

Chapter 10 is titled [Returning To The Thousand-Mirror Labyrinth 萬鏡臺行者重歸; Monkey King Rescued Himself At Ge-Jing Palace 葛藟宮悟空自救.] Monkey King put Qin Gui into a calabash and turned him into thick liquid. He then offered the liquid to General Yuè Fei for the redress of frame-up. Yuè rebuffed the invitation and said scornfully that even half a bite of the trator's flesh would make his body stink for half a year.

Monkey King took off his robe and left the Gate of Hell for the Mystery World. There he met a self-claimed "New Ancient 新古人" who could not go back into Ancient World, had to stay and open a restaurant business.
Monkey King then asked him how could he return to Blue Green World so that he could continue accompanying Monk Tάng to the Western Journey. The New Ancient answered: "Trace your way back. The way you came is the way you leave." He pushed Monkey King as his last word fell.

The push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 美國西遊記].

[Friar Sand & Tài-Yǐ crystals] :

From chapter 59 to 61, Monk Tάng and his team stopped at Flame Mountain, where they saw no trace of living things. The whole mountain was covered by fire. To pass through, they had to borrow the palm-leaf fan belonging to Princess Iron Fan, wife of Ox King.

Unfortunately, Monkey King had earlier captured their son, the Red Child, whom Budhisattva had taken in as a finance boy. The Princess remembered that incident and therefore refused to lend them the fan. Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. However, she gave him a phony one.

The most popular fiction in the oriental world is Wú's novel called, [Journey to the West ]. It was based on historical fact of a monk named, Monk Táng who seek Buddhist scriptures in the West during the Táng Dynasty around year 600 A.D. Monk Táng's expedition was so popular that he had become a deified figure in China' Japan' Korea and India. After thousand years passed with all kinds of folk stories' stage plays' classical novels' operas ' dramas about him, [Journey to the West] is the finalized novel version written about Monk Táng and Monkey King.

Wú's [Journey to the West] named Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 as Monk Táng , but we named him back as Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 , also, we named Wú's novel and all the related media production [Journey to the West].as [West Journey].

We refer "Journey to the West" as the historical event of Xúan玄-Zhùang奘.

Around 1570, [JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊記] came out. It had resulted from a combination of folk stories, stage plays, and the classical novel [Accounts of Journey To The West]. Wú Chéng-En 吳承恩 edited and rewrote them into 100 chapters.

Chapter 1 to 7 focuses on the origin of Monkey King 孫猴王 conceived by a fairy stone in the Flower-Fruit Mountain 花果山, he was a stone monkey living under the sea of Aó Lai2 State 敖來州, part of the divine land Dong Sheng4. In order to compete with the lifespan of heaven and earth and achieve immortality, Monkey King left home and was apprenticed to Bodhi' 菩提 thus named Sun-Wù-Kong 孫悟空 meaning "Pondering on emptiness". After he obtained the powerful golden cudgel, a gift from Dragon King Aó Guang3 敖廣 of the East Sea, he immediately claimed himself a saint that enjoyed equal power with heaven. Later, Monkey King had to be pressed under Wu3-Hang2 Mountain 五行山 for 500 years for stirring up trouble in the heavenly palace..

Chapter 8 to 13 tells stories of Monk Táng 唐僧. Originally called Xúan玄-Zhùang奘, Táng was nicknamed the Golden Cicada in his previous life. While he was a student of Buddha, he displayed an imprudent attitude toward him. For that reason, Buddha demoted Táng to the Eastern Region, where he was parented by a top scholar Chén Guang-rui and a minister's daughter Ying Wen-Jiao. Táng became a monk as a child. Following an imperial order, Tάng set off for the West to collect the scriptures from Cháng-An. When he encountered demons in Gong State, Venus rescued him. While crossing the Two-Bordered Mountain, "the Mighty Man" Liú Bó-Qing 劉伯欽 saved him from tigers.

Words from Yáng-Fú 楊福 (茯) : Those stories of Monk Táng from Chapter 8 to 13 is a total disgrace disaster to Xúan玄-Zhùang奘, which made Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 the most unuseful character in the story, Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 never carry any last name of Táng in his Journey To The West ! In our [American West Journey 2020] we discard of those non-senses and give Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 back his real life and character as followings:

Monk Táng, 陳 褘 Chéng-Hui was his name before he became a monk (Hui means 'ceremonial robe of empress worn in time of sacrifice'). Jiang-Liú 江流 was his child pet name (Jiang meaning river, Liú means flowing), became a monk when he was 13. 

That Monk Táng (Xúan-Zhùang) actually had a fiancee' was actually a known fact to people in his hometown, Stories go that as a young boy, Hui Chéng (Xúan-Zhùang was his monk name) had married 徐 香 真 Xiang-Zhen (meaning fragrance-truth) , daughter of his mother's bosom friend Xú. 

(Qín Emperor had chained most of young men to build the Great Wall, then Súi Emperor had slaved whole country's men to dig the tunnel rivers flowing countrywide, to avoid these kind of labor, kids got married very young in those ages.)

At age 13, the couple went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south. Xiang-Zhen was kidnapped on the spot. (So Xiang-Zhen should always call Xúan-Zhùang by his child pet name Jian-Liú, u pronunciation in 2nd tone).

Tormented by this loss, Xúan-Zhùang wandered into the Temple Of Pure Earth where he became a monk. 

17 years later on his way to the West, Xiang-Zhen suddenly emerged. Failing to persuade Xúan-Zhùang to resume a secular life, Xiang-Zhen swore to wait for him forever. 

 

In chappter 14, Monk Tάng worked off the incantation on Monkey King and took him as a student.

In chapter 15, White-Dragon Horse 白龍馬 was caught in the Eagle-Scared Ravine, Originally the son of Dragon King Aó Jin4 in the State of Guang in the West Sea, he committed arson and burned the bright pearls. For this crime he was sentenced to death but later rescued by Buddha, who turned him into a horse to serve Monk Táng.

In chapter 16, Kasayas were lost in the house of Bodhisattvas. In Chapter 17, a black bear descended from Mountain Black Wind. In chapter 18, demon was caught in Gao4 Village. In chapter 19, Pigsy 豬八戒 was
captured on Mountain Fú-Lái 福來山. Named "Searching for Abilities 豬悟能", Pigsy was originally a general of Water God in the Milky Way. After assailing and harassed the Moon Goddess at the Fairy Peach Party while he was drunk, the general was demoted onto the earth and turned into the form of a pig.

In chapter 20 and 21, Marten Spirit came to hide on Mountain Yellow Wind. In chapter 22, Friar Sand 沙僧 disappeared in Flowing Sands River. Like Pigsy, Monk Sand also used to be a general. He was demoted onto the earth and fell into Flowing Sands River for breaking the crystal glass roof at the Fairy Peach Party. His Buddhist name was "Trying To Comprehend Purity 悟淨".

In chapter 23, Monk Tάng and his team passed through the border of Xiniuhe. Widow Mo married off her daughters, and Pigsy was lured and hanged.

In chapter 24, someone stole the Ginseng Fruit on Longevity Hill. In chapter 25, the Self-Possessed Immortal chased Monk Tάng and his team. In chapter 26, Bothisattva brought the Ginseng Tree back to life.

In chapter 27, Monkey King beat the White Demon 3 times, but was ultimately driven away. In chapter 28, Princess Bao3-Xiang set Monk Tάng free in the Black Forest. From chapter 29 to 31, Pigsy prodded Monkey
King into coming back to the team and catching the Yellow-Gown Demon in the state of Baoxiang. From chapter 32 to 35, the Golden and Silver Horn Kings were captured in the Lotus Cave.

From chapter 36 to 39, the dead had a dream in Bao3-Ling2 Temple, The state of Brown Chicken sent a lion to save the life of it's king.
From chapter 40 to 42, Monkey King was burned on Mountain Hao4, Bodhisattva captured the Red Child- son of Princess Iron-Fan and Ox King.

In chapter 43, the dragon of Black Water River conquered demons. From chapter 44 to 46, the state of Chechi eliminated 3 demons in the shapes of lamb, deer and tiger. From chapter 47 to 49, Bodhisattva relieved the distressed with a fish basket in the River of Reaching Heaven.

From chapter 50 to 52, the Old Man Of Jindow Mountain took prisoner of the Green Cow. In chapter 53, River of Mother And Son became pregnant. Birth took place on Jie Yáng Mountain. In chapter 54, the Queen of State Xi-Liang2 tried to marry Monk Táng. In chapter 55, Xinjun killed the Scorpion in Pipa Cave.

In chapter 56, Monkey King punished the bandits and got expelled by Monk Táng. In chapter 57, the false Monkey King stole the package and scapegoated the true Monkey King. In Chapter 58, the true and the false
Monkey Kings confronted each other. Boddha distinguished the true from the false.

From chapter 59 to 61, Monk Tάng and his team stopped at Mountain Flame, where they saw no trace of living things. The whole mountain was covered by fire. To pass through, they had to borrow the palm-leaf fan belonging to Princess Iron Fan, wife of Ox King.

Unfortunately, Monkey King had earlier captured their son, the Red Child, whom Budhisattva had taken in as a finance boy. The Princess remembered that incident and therefore refused to lend them the fan. Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. However, she gave him a phony one. Monkey King was almost burned half dead by trying to quell the flames by the phony
fan.

On the second try, Monkey King stole Ox King's Golden-Eyed Beast under water while the King was having a party at the Blue-Waved Pond. Monkey King changed into the form of Ox King and came to the residence of the Princess. There he fooled her and got hold of the real fan. However, he only obtained the incantation on how to enlarge the size of the fan, but forgot to get the codes for reducing the size. Consequently, Monkey King had to carry the fan on his back. On his way home, unfortunately, he met Ox King, who appeared as Pigsy and tricked him into returning the fan.

Finally, Monkey King and Ox King had a big battle. Following the order of the Jade Emperor, Buddhist and Heaven troops came onto the earth and intervened. During the battle, Heavenly King Tuota and his 3rd son
Nazha captured Ox King. To save their own lives, Princess Iron-Fan and Ox King had to surrender their fan. Monkey King took the fan and waved 49 times on Flame Mountain. The fire was gone immediately. Rain
replaced fire, moisture replaced dryness. Walking on the smooth paths, Monk Tάng and his team easily passed through the mountain and continued their journey westward.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY To THE WEST 西遊補] comprises 16 chapters. The novel follows chapter 61 [Gaining the Palm Leaf Fan On 3rd Try] from the original [Journey To The West 西遊記]. The enlarged version was written by Dông Shuo 董說, master of Serenity House.

Dông came from a declining wealthy family in Hú Zhou, Zhè-Jiang Province. His father wrote poems for a living. Dông was orphaned in boyhood when his father died at age 42.

In 1640, Dông completed [The Enlarged Version of JOURNEY TO THE WEST] at age 20. He became a monk at age 33. In the same year, General Zhang Xian-Zhong occupied Si4-Chuang Province while Li3 Zi4-Cheng2 took control of He2-Nan2. 4 years later, the Qing Dynasty 清(1644-1911) replaced the Míng Dynasty (1368-1644). In his life time, Dong wrote 120 books many of which were burned by him. Had his sons not begged him in great sorrow, all of his books would have become ashes.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] follows the story line of the original novel. After Monk Tάng and his team passed through Mountain Flame, they rested under a peony tree, where they encounter the most vicious demon- Mackerel Spirit, the "Lust Demon" 鯖魚精.

Where did Mackerel Spirit originate? At the beginning of life, light substances rose to the sky, heavy substances formed the earth. The in-betweens, humans, settled on the earth. The near-light substances and the least heavy substances gathered in the Flower-Fruit Mountain 花果山, which created Monkey King 孫悟空. The near heavy substances and the least light substances congregated in the Little Moon Cave 小月洞, which created Mackerel Spirit. Monkey King and Mackerel Spirit were born at exactly the same moment, same day, same month and same year. However, Monkey King represented righteousness and Mackerel Spirit symbolized evilness.

Mackerel Spirit's capacity overwhelmed Monkey King's by 10 times. He had a huge body with its head and feet stretching from Mountain Kunlun to the star of Mystery. He claimed himself the "Blue Green World
青青世界" and exercised great power of manipulation.

Mackerel Spirit was actually a spirit of desire, often appearing in invisible forms. It had potentials of attacking anyone during his various emotional states: sad, happy or hesitant. It could also attack anyone from a distance. Once the desire attached itself on someone, it would remain there eternally.

In [Journey To The West 西遊記] all the demons displayed a common goal, that is, to kill Monk Tάng and eat his flesh. However, In [The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] Mackerel Spirit adapted different strategies as to how to achieve the same goal. He knew that to get Monk Táng, he'd have to eliminate Monkey King, the most powerful aide to Monk Táng. Being aware that it wasn't easy to attack Monkey King when he was sober, Markevel Spirit planned to sneak into his dream and take advantage of his sexual desire. Once aroused, Monkey King would indulge in passionate imagination and sexual pleasure, which would make him a vulnerable victim.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] emphasizes Monkey King's dreams and his sextual desire. Chapter 1 is titled [The Poeny Tree Red, Mackerel Spirit Exhales Around 牡丹紅鯖魚吐氣;
Condoling Lament Dead, Monkey King Mourns Dreams 送冤文猴聖留連.] As the team moved away from Mountain Flame, they stopped at a mountain path covered by fallen flowers. A peony tree immediately caught
everyone's attention.

While Monkey King was admiring the bright colors of the peony. Monk Tάng commented that the peony wasn't red, Monkey King's thought was; Fallen flowers were no different from unblossomed ones.

Just then, a group of youngsters emerged and provoked them. Being free from passion, Monkey King killed all of them. A while later, he turned compassionate and wrote a message of condolence. Then he felt confused and let his dream sneak in.

Chapter 2 is titled [Western Way Phantom New Tάng Dynasty 西方路幻出新唐; In the Green Jade Palace Meeting The Unsurpassed Finesse Emperor 緣玉殿風華天子.] In the dream, Monkey King was trying
to beg some food for the team, a Tάng castle stood in front of him. He was puzzled by the new emperor and the change of direction.

Monkey King asked the Gnomes, but he got no reply; he tried to find out from the Heaven God, but failed once again. Finally Monkey King went to Heaven and requested to see the Jade Emperor- he was confused entrance. The reason being, he had stolen Ling2-Xiao Palace, therefore, there was no gate left. Disappointed, Monkey King had to return to the Green Jade Palace.

The 3rd chapter is titled [Peach-Blossom Edict Rewards Monk Tάng 桃花鉞詔頒玄奘; Chopped-Sky Chisel Amazes Monkey King 鑿天斧驚動心猿] The new emperor appointed Monk Tάng to the position of Command-In-Chief.

Monkey saw the Tάng Dynasty which was not supposed to appear in the western journey, then the confused Monkey King caught the sight of 500 troops splitting the sky with axes. He overheard them talking about
Monk Táng, who had entered the Green World and the Little Moon King, who wanted to present Monk Tάng half of the Green World as a gift for the two had been a couple in their previous lives. Since Monk Tάng insisted to go West for the scriptures, the Little Moon King had ordered these troops to clear all the path toward the Jade Emperor's Palace to collect the scriptures.

Unfortunately, the troops deviated from the right direction and mistakenly destroyed Ling2-Xiao Palace. The heaven held Monkey King responsible for the invasion; the earth also attributed Monkey King's killing of the youngsters to this accident. Thus Monkey King became a scapegoat.

The 4th chapter is titled [Entering the Labyrinth Of Thousands Of Mirror when a thought occurs 一竇開時迷萬鏡; Losing oneself when others appear 物形現處我形亡.] Monkey King concluded that this Little Moon
King must be a demon. so he rose up and bumped into a castle, which turned out to be the Green World. Once inside, Monkey King saw no signs of living creatures. He became angry and poked about randomly.

Suddenly, Monkey King hit a green stone and fell down at a bright entrance. What stood in front of him was a glazed pagoda walled by precious mirrors, about ten thousand of them. The mirrors differed in sizes and shapes. Among them were the Heavenly King Animal Button Mirror, White Jade Heart Mirror, Self-Doubt Mirror, Flower Mirror, Wind Mirror, Male and Female Mirror, Purple Silk Lotus Mirror, Water Mirror, Ice Plat-Form Mirror, Iron-Faced Lotus Mirror, Self Mirror, People Mirror, Moon Mirror, South Sea Mirror, Queen's Mirror, Green Lock Mirror, Serenity Mirror, Black Mirror, Bronze Mirror, Parrot Mirror, Silence Mirror, Image Mirror, First Queen's Mirror, One Smile Mirror, Pillow Mirror, Scenery Gone Mirror, Flight Mirror...

Monkey King was fun-loving. He wanted to see thousands of reflections in the mirrors. Strange enough, when he tried, he saw Liú Bó-Qing 劉伯欽, who once rescued him on Wu-hang Mountain. Liu informed Monkey
King that the whole world was controlled by the mirrors each of which had its designated realm of reign. The mirror pagoda was nick-named "Three Thousand Worlds of a Big Thousand Worlds"... Before he could continue, an old lady appeared and dragged Liu away.

Uncontested, Monkey King had to start with a few mirrors by himself. The pan excellence mirror displayed a scene during publishment of candidates of the imperial examinations.

In front of the announcement board of examination result, the crowd became wild and restless, bustles and weeps, mingled with curses.

Some sat still, some broke their ink slabs, some ran around and were chased and beaten by their parents and teachers. Some burned their musical instruments and cried their hearts out. Some paced up and down and immersed in reading their own papers. Some laughed hysterically and stroke the tables, some comforted the failed by offering a brothel visit...

Those who became candidates either changed into new outfits or tried to conceal their happiness, or wrote on the walls, or condemned the examiners for others' failure, or forced the onlookers to read their names on the list, or talked volubly, or bragged about their predictive dreams the previous night.

Chapter 5 is titled [Carved Blue Mirror Dragged Monkey King Back To Ancient Times; 鏤青鏡心猿入古; Sun-Wừ-Kong frowned At The Green Pearl Pagoda 綠珠樓行者攢眉.] While examining the second par excellence mirror, Monkey King saw a stele carved with the words "Ancient World". He wanted to obtain the Mountain Banishing Bell from the Emperor of the Qin Dynasty 秦 BC 221-206 so that the bell could flatten the journey to the West. Monkey King was so absorbed in the thought that he merged into the mirror.

Chapter 6 is titled [Real Beauty Was Killed Over False's tears 半面淚痕真美死; Chu Emperor Was Worried For The Offer Of second girl friend 一句蘋香楚將愁.] Chapter 7 is titled [Chu3 Emperror Tells Stories Over Midnight 秦楚之際四聲鼓; True And False Beauties Appear In One Mirror 真假美人一鏡中.]

The Ancient Mirror showed a banquet scene entertained by ancient beauty Luzhu, Xishi and Sisi. Monkey King planned to disguise as a maid to get in, but he lost control and turned into Yuji, wife of Chu Emperor.

From the stories Chu had told him, Monkey King found out that Qin Emperor was staying in the Mystery World, located in front of the Future Mirror 未來鏡. When they strolled to the Jade Gate, Monkey King broke away and rolled into the Future Mirror.

Chapter 8 is titled [Eliminating Six Thieves In Future Mirror 一入未來除六賊; Passing Judgement While Being Yama For Half Day 半日閻羅決正邪.] Chapter 9 is titled [Trator Qin2 Gui4 Couldn't Atone For His Crime 秦檜百身難自贖; Monkey King Swore Allegiance To General Yuè Fei 大聖一心皈穆王.]

In the Future Mirror, Monkey King killed the six thieves who intended to rob Yuji, disguised by Monkey King. Two young boys stopped him and told him about Yama's sudden death, then dragged him into the Gate of
Hell act as temporary Yama until the new Yama arrived. In Yama's Court, Monkey King brought the minister of the South Song Dynasty 南宋 1127-1279 Qin2 Gui4 秦檜 to trial.

Qin had send a gold plate 12 times in the name of Song Emperor to call back General Yuè Fei 岳飛, who was fighting enemy in the front line. Later on, Qin killed Yue Fei and caused the collapse of the South Song Dynasty in the hands of the enemy. Up to the present, all Chinese address Qin "The Traitor" for this historical fact.

Monkey King made Qin climb the mountain of swords and plunge into an oil-boiling pan. Then he had Qin cut into pieces and grinded into ashes. Afterward, he brought Qin back to normal and started the cycle over. In addition, Monkey King ordered 150 iron-faced ghosts to insert 6 million needles into Qin's body.

Finally, to compensate for his treacherous deeds of sending 12 gold plates to withdraw General Yuè Fei, Monkey King announced that Qin2 should be carved 12 times. The first time, he was carved in fish scale style. The second time, he was carved in water waves. The third time, snow flakes. When the fourth time began, General Yuè Fei 岳飛 arrived at the Court.

Chapter 10 is titled [Returning To The Thousand-Mirror Labyrinth 萬鏡臺行者重歸; Monkey King Rescued Himself At Ge-Jing Palace 葛藟宮悟空自救.] Monkey King put Qin Gui into a calabash and turned him into thick liquid. He then offered the liquid to General Yuè Fei for the redress of frame-up. Yuè rebuffed the invitation and said scornfully that even half a bite of the trator's flesh would make his body stink for half a year.

Monkey King took off his robe and left the Gate of Hell for the Mystery World. There he met a self-claimed "New Ancient 新古人" who could not go back into Ancient World, had to stay and open a restaurant business.
Monkey King then asked him how could he return to Blue Green World so that he could continue accompanying Monk Tάng to the Western Journey. The New Ancient answered: "Trace your way back. The way you came is the way you leave." He pushed Monkey King as his last word fell.

The push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 美國西遊記].

At age 13, the couple went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south. Xiang-Zhen was kidnapped on the spot. (So Xiang-Zhen should always call Xúan-Zhùang by his child pet name Jian-Liú, u pronunciation in 2nd tone).

Tormented by this loss, Xúan-Zhùang wandered into the Temple Of Pure Earth where he became a monk. 

17 years later on his way to the West, Xiang-Zhen suddenly emerged. Failing to persuade Xúan-Zhùang to resume a secular life, Xiang-Zhen swore to wait for him forever. 

 

 

In chappter 14, Monk Tάng worked off the incantation on Monkey King and took him as a student.

In chapter 15, White-Dragon Horse 白龍馬 was caught in the Eagle-Scared Ravine, Originally the son of Dragon King Aó Jin4 in the State of Guang in the West Sea, he committed arson and burned the bright pearls. For this crime he was sentenced to death but later rescued by Buddha, who turned him into a horse to serve Monk Táng.

In chapter 16, Kasayas were lost in the house of Bodhisattvas. In Chapter 17, a black bear descended from Mountain Black Wind. In chapter 18, demon was caught in Gao4 Village. In chapter 19, Pigsy 豬八戒 was
captured on Mountain Fú-Lái 福來山. Named "Searching for Abilities 豬悟能", Pigsy was originally a general of Water God in the Milky Way. After assailing and harassed the Moon Goddess at the Fairy Peach Party while he was drunk, the general was demoted onto the earth and turned into the form of a pig.

In chapter 20 and 21, Marten Spirit came to hide on Mountain Yellow Wind. In chapter 22, Friar Sand 沙僧 disappeared in Flowing Sands River. Like Pigsy, Monk Sand also used to be a general. He was demoted onto the earth and fell into Flowing Sands River for breaking the crystal glass roof at the Fairy Peach Party. His Buddhist name was "Trying To Comprehend Purity 悟淨".

In chapter 23, Monk Tάng and his team passed through the border of Xiniuhe. Widow Mo married off her daughters, and Pigsy was lured and hanged.

In chapter 24, someone stole the Ginseng Fruit on Longevity Hill. In chapter 25, the Self-Possessed Immortal chased Monk Tάng and his team. In chapter 26, Bothisattva brought the Ginseng Tree back to life.

In chapter 27, Monkey King beat the White Demon 3 times, but was ultimately driven away. In chapter 28, Princess Bao3-Xiang set Monk Tάng free in the Black Forest. From chapter 29 to 31, Pigsy prodded Monkey
King into coming back to the team and catching the Yellow-Gown Demon in the state of Baoxiang. From chapter 32 to 35, the Golden and Silver Horn Kings were captured in the Lotus Cave.

From chapter 36 to 39, the dead had a dream in Bao3-Ling2 Temple, The state of Brown Chicken sent a lion to save the life of it's king.
From chapter 40 to 42, Monkey King was burned on Mountain Hao4, Bodhisattva captured the Red Child- son of Princess Iron-Fan and Ox King.

In chapter 43, the dragon of Black Water River conquered demons. From chapter 44 to 46, the state of Chechi eliminated 3 demons in the shapes of lamb, deer and tiger. From chapter 47 to 49, Bodhisattva relieved the distressed with a fish basket in the River of Reaching Heaven.

From chapter 50 to 52, the Old Man Of Jindow Mountain took prisoner of the Green Cow. In chapter 53, River of Mother And Son became pregnant. Birth took place on Jie Yáng Mountain. In chapter 54, the Queen of State Xi-Liang2 tried to marry Monk Táng. In chapter 55, Xinjun killed the Scorpion in Pipa Cave.

In chapter 56, Monkey King punished the bandits and got expelled by Monk Táng. In chapter 57, the false Monkey King stole the package and scapegoated the true Monkey King. In Chapter 58, the true and the false
Monkey Kings confronted each other. Boddha distinguished the true from the false.

From chapter 59 to 61, Monk Tάng and his team stopped at Mountain Flame, where they saw no trace of living things. The whole mountain was covered by fire. To pass through, they had to borrow the palm-leaf fan belonging to Princess Iron Fan, wife of Ox King.

Unfortunately, Monkey King had earlier captured their son, the Red Child, whom Budhisattva had taken in as a finance boy. The Princess remembered that incident and therefore refused to lend them the fan. Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. However, she gave him a phony one. Monkey King was almost burned half dead by trying to quell the flames by the phony
fan.

On the second try, Monkey King stole Ox King's Golden-Eyed Beast under water while the King was having a party at the Blue-Waved Pond. Monkey King changed into the form of Ox King and came to the residence of the Princess. There he fooled her and got hold of the real fan. However, he only obtained the incantation on how to enlarge the size of the fan, but forgot to get the codes for reducing the size. Consequently, Monkey King had to carry the fan on his back. On his way home, unfortunately, he met Ox King, who appeared as Pigsy and tricked him into returning the fan.

Finally, Monkey King and Ox King had a big battle. Following the order of the Jade Emperor, Buddhist and Heaven troops came onto the earth and intervened. During the battle, Heavenly King Tuota and his 3rd son
Nazha captured Ox King. To save their own lives, Princess Iron-Fan and Ox King had to surrender their fan. Monkey King took the fan and waved 49 times on Flame Mountain. The fire was gone immediately. Rain
replaced fire, moisture replaced dryness. Walking on the smooth paths, Monk Tάng and his team easily passed through the mountain and continued their journey westward.

 

Emphasis: After they left Flame Mountain, Green Fish sneaks in and manipulates Monkey King's dream while he is napping.

The story of [West Journey 1570] was so successful that most novelists tried to outdo Wu's version, but to no avail until Dông Shuo's [West Journey Supplement 1640] was published 70 years later.  

[West Journey Supplement 1640]: The plots are continued from [West Journey]'s [Flame Mountain]. Green Fish keeps Monkey King away from his West Journey team by making him sleeping and dreaming into Future Mirror.   

Future Mirror :

Chapter 10 is titled [Returning To The Thousand-Mirror Labyrinth 萬鏡臺行者重歸; Monkey King Rescued Himself At Ge-Jing Palace 葛藟宮悟空自救.] Monkey King put Qin Gui into a calabash and turned him into thick liquid. He then offered the liquid to General Yuè Fei for the redress of frame-up. Yuè rebuffed the invitation and said scornfully that even half a bite of the trator's flesh would make his body stink for half a year.

Monkey King took off his robe and left the Gate of Hell for the Mystery World. There he met a self-claimed "New Ancient 新古人" who could not go back into Ancient World, had to stay and open a restaurant business.
Monkey King then asked him how could he return to Blue Green World so that he could continue accompanying Monk Tάng to the Western Journey. The New Ancient answered: "Trace your way back. The way you came is the way you leave." He pushed Monkey King as his last word fell.

The push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 美國西遊記].

http://www.americanwestjourney.com/westJourneySupplement1640.html

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY To THE WEST 西遊補] comprises 16 chapters. The novel follows chapter 61 [Gaining the Palm Leaf Fan On 3rd Try] from the original [Journey To The West 西遊記]. The enlarged version was written by Dông Shuo 董說, master of Serenity House.

Dông came from a declining wealthy family in Hú Zhou, Zhè-Jiang Province. His father wrote poems for a living. Dông was orphaned in boyhood when his father died at age 42.

In 1640, Dông completed [The Enlarged Version of JOURNEY TO THE WEST] at age 20. He became a monk at age 33. In the same year, General Zhang Xian-Zhong occupied Si4-Chuang Province while Li3 Zi4-Cheng2 took control of He2-Nan2. 4 years later, the Qing Dynasty 清(1644-1911) replaced the Míng Dynasty (1368-1644). In his life time, Dong wrote 120 books many of which were burned by him. Had his sons not begged him in great sorrow, all of his books would have become ashes.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] follows the story line of the original novel. After Monk Tάng and his team passed through Mountain Flame, they rested under a peony tree, where they encounter the most vicious demon- Mackerel Spirit, the "Lust Demon" 鯖魚精.

Where did Mackerel Spirit originate? At the beginning of life, light substances rose to the sky, heavy substances formed the earth. The in-betweens, humans, settled on the earth. The near-light substances and the least heavy substances gathered in the Flower-Fruit Mountain 花果山, which created Monkey King 孫悟空. The near heavy substances and the least light substances congregated in the Little Moon Cave 小月洞, which created Mackerel Spirit. Monkey King and Mackerel Spirit were born at exactly the same moment, same day, same month and same year. However, Monkey King represented righteousness and Mackerel Spirit symbolized evilness.

Mackerel Spirit's capacity overwhelmed Monkey King's by 10 times. He had a huge body with its head and feet stretching from Mountain Kunlun to the star of Mystery. He claimed himself the "Blue Green World
青青世界" and exercised great power of manipulation.

Mackerel Spirit was actually a spirit of desire, often appearing in invisible forms. It had potentials of attacking anyone during his various emotional states: sad, happy or hesitant. It could also attack anyone from a distance. Once the desire attached itself on someone, it would remain there eternally.

In [Journey To The West 西遊記] all the demons displayed a common goal, that is, to kill Monk Tάng and eat his flesh. However, In [The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] Mackerel Spirit adapted different strategies as to how to achieve the same goal. He knew that to get Monk Táng, he'd have to eliminate Monkey King, the most powerful aide to Monk Táng. Being aware that it wasn't easy to attack Monkey King when he was sober, Markevel Spirit planned to sneak into his dream and take advantage of his sexual desire. Once aroused, Monkey King would indulge in passionate imagination and sexual pleasure, which would make him a vulnerable victim.

[The Enlarged Version Of JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊補] emphasizes Monkey King's dreams and his sextual desire. Chapter 1 is titled [The Poeny Tree Red, Mackerel Spirit Exhales Around 牡丹紅鯖魚吐氣;
Condoling Lament Dead, Monkey King Mourns Dreams 送冤文猴聖留連.] As the team moved away from Mountain Flame, they stopped at a mountain path covered by fallen flowers. A peony tree immediately caught
everyone's attention.

While Monkey King was admiring the bright colors of the peony. Monk Tάng commented that the peony wasn't red, Monkey King's thought was; Fallen flowers were no different from unblossomed ones.

Just then, a group of youngsters emerged and provoked them. Being free from passion, Monkey King killed all of them. A while later, he turned compassionate and wrote a message of condolence. Then he felt confused and let his dream sneak in.

Chapter 2 is titled [Western Way Phantom New Tάng Dynasty 西方路幻出新唐; In the Green Jade Palace Meeting The Unsurpassed Finesse Emperor 緣玉殿風華天子.] In the dream, Monkey King was trying
to beg some food for the team, a Tάng castle stood in front of him. He was puzzled by the new emperor and the change of direction.

Monkey King asked the Gnomes, but he got no reply; he tried to find out from the Heaven God, but failed once again. Finally Monkey King went to Heaven and requested to see the Jade Emperor- he was confused entrance. The reason being, he had stolen Ling2-Xiao Palace, therefore, there was no gate left. Disappointed, Monkey King had to return to the Green Jade Palace.

The 3rd chapter is titled [Peach-Blossom Edict Rewards Monk Tάng 桃花鉞詔頒玄奘; Chopped-Sky Chisel Amazes Monkey King 鑿天斧驚動心猿] The new emperor appointed Monk Tάng to the position of Command-In-Chief.

Monkey saw the Tάng Dynasty which was not supposed to appear in the western journey, then the confused Monkey King caught the sight of 500 troops splitting the sky with axes. He overheard them talking about
Monk Táng, who had entered the Green World and the Little Moon King, who wanted to present Monk Tάng half of the Green World as a gift for the two had been a couple in their previous lives. Since Monk Tάng insisted to go West for the scriptures, the Little Moon King had ordered these troops to clear all the path toward the Jade Emperor's Palace to collect the scriptures.

Unfortunately, the troops deviated from the right direction and mistakenly destroyed Ling2-Xiao Palace. The heaven held Monkey King responsible for the invasion; the earth also attributed Monkey King's killing of the youngsters to this accident. Thus Monkey King became a scapegoat.

The 4th chapter is titled [Entering the Labyrinth Of Thousands Of Mirror when a thought occurs 一竇開時迷萬鏡; Losing oneself when others appear 物形現處我形亡.] Monkey King concluded that this Little Moon
King must be a demon. so he rose up and bumped into a castle, which turned out to be the Green World. Once inside, Monkey King saw no signs of living creatures. He became angry and poked about randomly.

Suddenly, Monkey King hit a green stone and fell down at a bright entrance. What stood in front of him was a glazed pagoda walled by precious mirrors, about ten thousand of them. The mirrors differed in sizes and shapes. Among them were the Heavenly King Animal Button Mirror, White Jade Heart Mirror, Self-Doubt Mirror, Flower Mirror, Wind Mirror, Male and Female Mirror, Purple Silk Lotus Mirror, Water Mirror, Ice Plat-Form Mirror, Iron-Faced Lotus Mirror, Self Mirror, People Mirror, Moon Mirror, South Sea Mirror, Queen's Mirror, Green Lock Mirror, Serenity Mirror, Black Mirror, Bronze Mirror, Parrot Mirror, Silence Mirror, Image Mirror, First Queen's Mirror, One Smile Mirror, Pillow Mirror, Scenery Gone Mirror, Flight Mirror...

Monkey King was fun-loving. He wanted to see thousands of reflections in the mirrors. Strange enough, when he tried, he saw Liú Bó-Qing 劉伯欽, who once rescued him on Wu-hang Mountain. Liu informed Monkey
King that the whole world was controlled by the mirrors each of which had its designated realm of reign. The mirror pagoda was nick-named "Three Thousand Worlds of a Big Thousand Worlds"... Before he could continue, an old lady appeared and dragged Liu away.

Uncontested, Monkey King had to start with a few mirrors by himself. The pan excellence mirror displayed a scene during publishment of candidates of the imperial examinations.

In front of the announcement board of examination result, the crowd became wild and restless, bustles and weeps, mingled with curses.

Some sat still, some broke their ink slabs, some ran around and were chased and beaten by their parents and teachers. Some burned their musical instruments and cried their hearts out. Some paced up and down and immersed in reading their own papers. Some laughed hysterically and stroke the tables, some comforted the failed by offering a brothel visit...

Those who became candidates either changed into new outfits or tried to conceal their happiness, or wrote on the walls, or condemned the examiners for others' failure, or forced the onlookers to read their names on the list, or talked volubly, or bragged about their predictive dreams the previous night.

Chapter 5 is titled [Carved Blue Mirror Dragged Monkey King Back To Ancient Times; 鏤青鏡心猿入古; Sun-Wừ-Kong frowned At The Green Pearl Pagoda 綠珠樓行者攢眉.] While examining the second par excellence mirror, Monkey King saw a stele carved with the words "Ancient World". He wanted to obtain the Mountain Banishing Bell from the Emperor of the Qin Dynasty 秦 BC 221-206 so that the bell could flatten the journey to the West. Monkey King was so absorbed in the thought that he merged into the mirror.

Chapter 6 is titled [Real Beauty Was Killed Over False's tears 半面淚痕真美死; Chu Emperor Was Worried For The Offer Of second girl friend 一句蘋香楚將愁.] Chapter 7 is titled [Chu3 Emperror Tells Stories Over Midnight 秦楚之際四聲鼓; True And False Beauties Appear In One Mirror 真假美人一鏡中.]

The Ancient Mirror showed a banquet scene entertained by ancient beauty Luzhu, Xishi and Sisi. Monkey King planned to disguise as a maid to get in, but he lost control and turned into Yuji, wife of Chu Emperor.

From the stories Chu had told him, Monkey King found out that Qin Emperor was staying in the Mystery World, located in front of the Future Mirror 未來鏡. When they strolled to the Jade Gate, Monkey King broke away and rolled into the Future Mirror.

Chapter 8 is titled [Eliminating Six Thieves In Future Mirror 一入未來除六賊; Passing Judgement While Being Yama For Half Day 半日閻羅決正邪.] Chapter 9 is titled [Trator Qin2 Gui4 Couldn't Atone For His Crime 秦檜百身難自贖; Monkey King Swore Allegiance To General Yuè Fei 大聖一心皈穆王.]

In the Future Mirror, Monkey King killed the six thieves who intended to rob Yuji, disguised by Monkey King. Two young boys stopped him and told him about Yama's sudden death, then dragged him into the Gate of
Hell act as temporary Yama until the new Yama arrived. In Yama's Court, Monkey King brought the minister of the South Song Dynasty 南宋 1127-1279 Qin2 Gui4 秦檜 to trial.

Qin had send a gold plate 12 times in the name of Song Emperor to call back General Yuè Fei 岳飛, who was fighting enemy in the front line. Later on, Qin killed Yue Fei and caused the collapse of the South Song Dynasty in the hands of the enemy. Up to the present, all Chinese address Qin "The Traitor" for this historical fact.

Monkey King made Qin climb the mountain of swords and plunge into an oil-boiling pan. Then he had Qin cut into pieces and grinded into ashes. Afterward, he brought Qin back to normal and started the cycle over. In addition, Monkey King ordered 150 iron-faced ghosts to insert 6 million needles into Qin's body.

Finally, to compensate for his treacherous deeds of sending 12 gold plates to withdraw General Yuè Fei, Monkey King announced that Qin2 should be carved 12 times. The first time, he was carved in fish scale style. The second time, he was carved in water waves. The third time, snow flakes. When the fourth time began, General Yuè Fei 岳飛 arrived at the Court.

Chapter 10 is titled [Returning To The Thousand-Mirror Labyrinth 萬鏡臺行者重歸; Monkey King Rescued Himself At Ge-Jing Palace 葛藟宮悟空自救.] Monkey King put Qin Gui into a calabash and turned him into thick liquid. He then offered the liquid to General Yuè Fei for the redress of frame-up. Yuè rebuffed the invitation and said scornfully that even half a bite of the trator's flesh would make his body stink for half a year.

Monkey King took off his robe and left the Gate of Hell for the Mystery World. There he met a self-claimed "New Ancient 新古人" who could not go back into Ancient World, had to stay and open a restaurant business.
Monkey King then asked him how could he return to Blue Green World so that he could continue accompanying Monk Tάng to the Western Journey. The New Ancient answered: "Trace your way back. The way you came is the way you leave." He pushed Monkey King as his last word fell.

The push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 美國西遊記].

Friar Sand used to be Convolution General in Tài-Yǐ Temple. He was demoted onto the earth and fell into Flowing-Sand River for breaking Ti-Yi lantern (which was able to monitor the past and future of earth) on the crystal glass roof at the Fairy Peach Party, while Monkey King agitating the battle in southern sky, General Convolution was supposed to together his troop, and to join the battalion just to capture the stone Monkey King who happened to decide that he should be the new Emperor of Sky.  

The Tài-Yǐ lantern dropped out of his palm and the crystal pieces drop out of the Tài-Yǐ Palace, down to the earth, planted to be the Tài-Yǐ mine under earth. (Dr.Sun's grate grand father as a miner during California gold rush, found the Tài-Yǐ crystal  and gave it to his son. In the last generation, Dr.Sun invented and developed the Smart Computer with his co-worker Dr.Robert, sold it to White House as the top national secret. ) 

Monkey King' Friar Sand' Pigsy and White Dragon were later punished to be Monk Xúan-Zhùang's disciples for West Journey mission.  

[Friar Sand & Tài-Yǐ crystals] :

Long time ago in the underworld, Yama's promoted Friar Sand to be the hell angel among his Rakshasa group. Without the earth body, the faces were never important among the ghosts and Rakshasa, All souls of ghost were fading and exhausting in hell's forever nights, the recycle of metempsychosis once was whirligig so fast that he and his co-angels had almost clean out ghost population in their duty zone, he was promoted to the heaven's Convolution General in Tài-Yǐ Temple.


Then he broke the Tài-Yǐ crystal lantern in the temple. It was an accident, Monkey King agitated the battle in south heaven, General Convolution was supposed to together his troop, and to join the battalion just to capture the stone monkey who happened to decide that he should be the Emperor of the Heaven. The Tài-Yǐlantern dropped out of his palm and the crystal pieces drop out of the Tài-Yǐ Palace, down to the earth, planted to be the Tài-Yǐmine under earth.


He was demoted down to be the Friar Sand in the Flowing Sands River; he was sentenced to wait there until he got called to serve the West Journey. He was waiting for the monk in those forever nights of sands of streams.

After hundred of years, he saw the first guy who try to cross the Flowing Sands River.

Friar Sand decided that the guy was not the monk to get him out to the journey; he stayed very far to observe the human drown into the sand.

When he saw the guy came in with the same face again, he started to count the earth years and figure out there was a palingenesis going on the guy. He had decided that the guy was never the calling for his West Journey Mission, so he still stay very far and watching him drowned.

The guy came again, same face, dressed and prayed like a friar this time. Friar Sand did not answer his pray to appear to save him.

The fourth time, the fifth time, the guy with the same face kept coming in and each time would start to dress as a monk.


Friar Sand decided it's a comeuppance for the guy, but nevertheless he dived to the bottom of the river to collect the guy's skulls, and he started to form the guy's face on his earthling body.

Xúan-Zhùang gave him a disciple name as Sand-Wù-Jìng (meaning "Trying to Comprehend Purity "). He used to be the oldest angel from hell angel to Heaven General, now he becomes the youngest disciple in the fellowship for the West Journey mission.

 

[Xúan玄-Zhùang奘 & Centipede's curse] :

That Monk Xúan-Zhùang actually had a fiancee' was actually a known fact to people in his hometown, Stories go that as a young boy, Hui Chéng (Xúan-Zhùang was his monk name) had married 徐香真 Xiang-Zhen (meaning fragrance-truth), daughter of his mother's bosom friend Xú.(Qín Emperor had chained most of young men to build the Great Wall, then Súi Emperor had slaved whole country's men to dig the tunnel rivers flowing countrywide, to avoid these kind of labor, kids got married very young in those ages.)

A cock that was part of Xúan-Zhùang's wife's trousseau, was scratching in Xúan-Zhùang's garden in his wedding. It found the Leggy Centipede's nest and ate all of her offspring. The cock was about to eat the Leggy Centipede herself, but instead of hiding beneath a stone, Leggy Centipede saved herself with merge into a fallen Ti-Yi crystal. Afterward, she took it, learned the secret of its magic, and used it to make herself immortal.

To avoid  those kind of coolies slavery and military conscription, kids got married very young in those ages, ever since Qín Dynasty. (Qín EMperor slaveried his people to build the Great Walls.)

His child pet name was Jiang-Liú 江流 .(means river-flowing).  He got married when he was 12 years old. Xiang香-Zheng真(means Fragrant- Purity) was 6 years older than him, daughter of his mother's bosom friend Xú. 

What they did in their wedding day? They were fooling around in the garden, there were lots of domesticated fowls from her trousseau, and they end up with chasing a big rooster across the fence and trees, laughing louder than the fowls.  In the wedding night, they lighted the fire-crackers into the ground, the rooster followed them and ate all the insects exposed. 

The Centipede escaped the massacre and hided into one Tài-Yǐ crystal, learn and gained the Tài-Yǐ magic power, become a supernatural and cursed Xúan-Zhùang's wedding night with the fireworks explosions. 

The couple went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south. Xiang-Zhen was kidnapped on the spot. Tormented by this loss, Xúan-Zhùang wandered into the Temple Of Pure Earth where he became a monk at age 13.  

17 years later on his way to the West, Xiang-Zhen suddenly emerged. Failing to persuade Xúan-Zhùang to resume a secular life, Xiang-Zhen swore to wait for him forever.  

[West Journey 1570]:

In Flame Mountain, Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among the tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan.

[West Journey Supplement 1640]:

After Monk Xúan-Zhùang and his team passed through Mountain Flame, they rested under a peony tree, where they encounter the most vicious demon- Mackerel Spirit, the "Lust Demon" Green Fish 鯖魚精.

Mackerel Spirit was actually a spirit of desire, often appearing in invisible forms. It had potentials of attacking anyone during his various emotional states: sad, happy or hesitant. It could also attack anyone from a distance. Once the desire attached itself on someone, it would remain there eternally.

Being aware that it wasn't easy to attack Monkey King when he was sober, Markevel Spirit planned to sneak into his dream and take advantage of his sexual desire. Once aroused, Monkey King would indulge in passionate imagination and sexual pleasure, which would make him a vulnerable victim.

[American West Journey  美國西遊記] ought to be titled [Addendum of West Journey Supplement 補西遊補], for it follows the 10th chapter [Mirror Of The Future 未來鏡] of [West Journey Supplement 西遊補] written by Dông Shuo 董說 in the Míng Dynasty 明代1368-1644.

While my version comes after Dông's, Dông's enlarges version is an addition to the original novel [JOURNEY TO THE WEST 西遊記] written by Wú Chéng-En 吳承恩 in the Míng Dynasty.

In 10th chapter [Mirror Of The Future 未來鏡] of [West Journey Supplement 西遊補], the push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 2020 美國西遊記].

As Monkey King wandered into the further future. He paused at the years of the 21st century, "A century of the Chinese", so it's been predicted. Monk Tάng and his team will therefore suddenly find themselves in "America 美國", a land commonly known as "Beautiful Land" by the Chinese. In reality, those who have ventured here have simply wasted their lives.

Nevertheless, Monk Tάng and his team soon became swollen-headed, fallen into illusion and frame-up of the Demon Lust. Mackerel Spirit (The Demon Lust) as mentioned earlier intended to take advantage of the situation. His immediate target was always Monkey King. Again, Mackerel let Monkey King develop his desire and let it go wild in his dreams. He then planned to corrupt him while he was going deeper and deeper in his self-indulgent dream.

The whole story takes place in Monkey King's dream.
