A Tribute to Hitesh

For several years, there was a poster on the rec.arts.comics.marvel.universe (racmu) named Hitesh. And he had a theory. The theory, at a high level, was that everything (at first i thought it was all super-powers but i've come to realize that it is in fact *everything*) could be measured as a factor of Telekinesis (TK) and Telepathy (TP), which generate tacyion fields, that in turn mimic powers or abilities. According to this theory, some entities that we assumed were actual characters were actually just TK/TP projections. For example, Venom is actually a projection of Spider-Man's. Dr. Doom is a projection of Reed Richards. More importantly, these TK/TP projections can be used to explain anomlies within the marvel universe. Spider-Man appears in 6+ books a months? It's because his TK/TP levels allow him to appear so often. Reed Richards is a genius in every scientific field? His genius is actually a manifestation of super-high TK/TP levels.

Using this theory, he was able to calculate the power levels of all entities in the Marvel Universe (and using the same rules he could determine the power levels for non-Marvel, and even non-comic book entities. And remember, an entity isn't the same thing as a person: it could be a tree. It could be a country.) The basis for these calculations was the Marvel Universe Role Playing Game that came out in the mid-80s, but his calculations went far beyond that, involving math that i can not comprehend. In truth, there's a lot about his calculations and theories that i can't comprehend but i know they are brilliant.

Unfortunately, most of the regulars on racmu did not understand Hitesh's genius. Most thought he was just publishing stats from the Marvel RPG. Some saw his bizarre rankings and thought he was a troll, trying to get people riled up by saying that Spider-man was more powerful than Thor. Others saw his theories and thought he was just crazy. OK, maybe he was crazy. But his theories are still fascinating.

Unfortunately, his posts all seem to have been wiped out and are no longer searchable on Google Groups. However, i have found random snippets of his posts in the 'replied-to text' of other people's responses. What i've been able to find, i'm reprinting here in no particular order so that they are preserved. I will continue to add to the list and hopefully organize it as i find more.

Hitesh also posted as "c2" and "tsr0@my-deja.com".

> Did you not read the Secret Wars, Marvel comics, during the '80s ? 
> It clearly states that the power level of Beyonder alone is enough 
> to destroy all Marvel gods & godesses combined, including Eternity/ 
> Mistress Death/Vishanti/Strangers/Celestials/Galactus/In-Betweener 
> Mephisto & MAYBE EVEN THE Living Tribunal. 

> Not sure how Master Order & Lord Chaos would fare against the 
> Beyonder entity. Although when the Beyonder first appeared, his 
> power levels were C1,000 but within a few comics, it jumped to 
> C5,000 by the time the Beyonder teleported mutants along with 
> Galactus on Battle Wordl & several comics later or a couple 
> comics in-between, he defeated Mistress Death & Eternity without 
> EVEN working up a sweat, figuratively speaking, since the Beyonder 
> only has sweat glands in his human form not in his pure energy 
> form which as he stated a single electron in his body has more 
> energy than all the galaxies in the Marvel Universe. SO, he's 
> pretty powerful since Galactus, alone, has a hard or difficult 
> time digesting more mass than a single star & turned catatonic 
> in 1 F.F. issue when he swallowed or digested too much mass & 
> nearly killed himself as his body was about collapse onto itself 
> as a black hole was slowly coming into effect inside of him as 

> As for battle world, what didn't make sense is that Dr Doom claimed 
> he managed to steel Beyonder's power or maybe Beyonder allowed Doom 
> to self delude himself into thinking that since if you consider 
> conservation of mass & energy you'd know that Doom didn't steel 
> Beyonder's power. Reasons as follows :: 

> 1) Dr. Doom in 1 issue managed to open a dimensional portal with 
> an alien device that he found 
> 2) Amount of energy needed to open such a portal is about equal 
> to 10% power level of Galactus 
> 3) Galactus was unable to steel Beyonder's power 
> 4) If Dr Doom's power level is 10% that of Galactus, meaning if 
> Dr Doom's psyche is at 50 points then Galactus's psyche is at 
> 500 points OR if Galactus's psyche is at 666 points then Dr Doom's 
> psyche is at 66.6 points 
> 5) Dr Doom's psyche is (2/3) that of Reed Richards. 
> 6) If neither Galactus nor Reed Richards was unable to steel 
> Beyonder's power THEN Dr Doom certainly would not be able to 
> steel Beyonder's power by common sense or logic reasoning 
> 7) Dr Doom is enough techno & magic know how & access to it enough 
> to generate teleportation power stunts 
> 8) So, when Dr Doom teleported the heroes from their individual 
> locations to Dr Doom's fortress or palace, he was NOT using 
> Beyonder's power but his own 
> 9) Dr Doom claimed - after he claimed to steel Beyoner's power - 
> that he became all knowing, BUT all is a relative term 
> 10) IF Doom gained in excess of 1% of what he already knew & 
> though what he now knew was all knowing may certainly NOT be 
> all knowing 
> 11) Beyonder never actually gives any of his power away except 
> maybe 1% - as in case of Dazzler with her brief fling with the 
> Beyonder entity - or to trick other person into thinking it 
> 12) So, in a sense, Dr Doom self deluded himself into thinking 
> that he stole Beyonder's power 
> 13) EVEN if Doom managed to get a fraction of Beyonder's power 
> by let's say 1% which would be 1% of 10,000 points which would 
> be 100 points plus what he already had, raising his psyche to

> that of Reed Richards in terms of points of psyche, in terms 
> of reality warping power by TK & TP, assuming Reed Richards 
> has 100 points or ability to generate Warp 3 or 100x light 
> speed velocity at 100 points of psyche, although '86 MU TSR RPG 
> offocially has Richards has same psyche level as Doom or about 66

>There was typo in earlier post, meant tos say that 
>TP = 10% of TK, meaning 500 points of TK = 50 points of TP, 
>meaning that C 75 TP = C 750 TK, usually or most of the time;
