Music Samples, Pre-Made Instruments and Fair Use
In regards to musical samples and such, what's considered transformative (or Fair Use) and what's not... that's what gets interesting.
A person is legally entitled to use a recording of something, or a pre-made instrument for a non-sampler synthesizer, as long as the recording, itself, isn't identified as a work within the context of the song. When the intention is to use it as a musical instrument, it's guaranteed to be considered transformative, but using something like lyrics as is, or a quote from a song, without intending it as a musical instrument, if you're presenting the thought as is in some manner, then it's not considered transformative, and it's not considered Fair Use.
This rule applies even when the nature of the musical format that stores the song would automatically grant the ones getting those songs the recordings or pre-made instruments used for the song. If it did not, musical formats such as module files, or even music made for the SNES, wouldn't be legal, as even l

Concerning Character Adoptables
Character adoptables is a concept found within certain communities; the idea is that one is buying or gaining a character they did not make in order to make that character their own.
Unlike closed species, the rules surrounding adoptables is indeed legally enforceable through copyright. In fact, the perspective on adoptables is actually stricter than what many let on. This is because from the perspective of copyright, you're not actually buying these characters per se, but rather a license to use said characters. Indeed, it's actually within the original creator of the adoptables' rights to have the ability to take the characters back.

Regarding Memories, and Mimicking the Eidectic
Memories are pieces of information stored within the mind for the purpose of being recalled. Memories are not necessarily thoughts, unlike knowledge; rather, they're just simply building blocks used build the thought.
Precisely due to memories being building blocks and not thoughts, themselves, this document (Referring to "Focusing and Controlling your Ideals (TPWM)), for the longest time, did not talk beyond it, aside from a mention of ideals not being the only truths to describe a person. However, it is linked to one's ability to think things through, one's ability to recognize and trust thoughts.
Memories are the most prime example of the notion of thoughts being completely independent from the truths used to form them; whatever one recognizes, even if only unconsciously, gets stored away within one's mind as a building block to be potentially recalled for later. This is one of the very few instances where the mere concept of vital building blocks, those needed for the proper

Mimicking Eidectic Memory Through Trust
Those with a keen ability to trust do not need eidectic memory to mimic the effects of having it; their ability to recognize the core fact, the very essence, the very identity, of what they're trying to remember, allows them to act as though they do have eidectic memory, even if that's just an illusion.
This is precisely due to thoughts not being the same thing as its building blocks. It's the end result we wan't; the means to get there does not matter in any regard, especially when the need to memorize comes to pass.
Even when vital building blocks is involved, that doesn't mean the thought is the same as them. Indeed, vital building blocks are only relevant for a thought's formation; as long as the thought's been formed, the vital building blocks can be knocked away, and the thought would still stand. The only thing one needs is the ability to recognize the thought for what it is, to see the thought's own sheer identity, since thoughts are, after all, forms of truth.

Animals and Human Speech
Animals hear human speech the same way we hear languages we don't understand: as a garbled mess of sound.
Since pure intent is still the basis of all communication, this means we always place intend around our own words when we talk. It's just that our weaker abilities, which I guess stems from our tendency to rely on patterns within our speech a bit too much, means that the intentions surrounding our own words tend to be quite weak, unless we specifically retrain our abilities up to at least the levels human babies start off with; babies learn languages through pure intent, which perhaps explains why they tend to be natural at picking up spoken languages. Their abilities to perceive and use pure intent weaken as soon as they start learning a language.
Hypothetically speaking, it is possible for an animal to learn human speech. It's just that it doesn't occur to most animals that they can do so, so most never really try. However, since we don't know of any being other than ourselves wi

Merging and Splitting Thoughts
To merge the thoughts together means to use two or more thoughts as a building block to make one collective whole; a thought whose identity is all thoughts at once, with there being no visible distinction to each other. The end ensuing thought identifies itself as a thought formed through all the identities at once, being a thought which happens to be all the merged thoughts at the exact same time; whatever the thought does, whatever tells of the thought, simultaneously tells of all the relevant thoughts at the same time.
Splitting thoughts means the opposite has taken effect: taking a thought with a singular identity, and then ripping the thought apart so that the separate pieces can become their own separate thoughts.
Whenever a thought gets merged or split, remember this: no thought are ever the same thing as its own building blocks. Therefore, thoughts that were merged may be considered one and the same (with no visible distinction between them), but that doesn't mean the merge tho

Chocobo Themes and their Styles
Those attentive would note, the Chocobo themes within each Final Fantasy games actually speaks of each game's most prominent characteristic, from a clash between magic and science within Final Fantasy VI to stopping an technologically created devil within Final Fantasy VII, to an exploration of lost technology from the perspective of those from a medieval age within Final Fantasy X.
The only Final Fantasy song that does not speak of the game's most prominent characteristic would be the original, naturally: the one from Final Fantasy II (NES). That song has one other irregularity, namely the fact that it does not have the second verse; that second verse was introduced within the Final Fantasy III (NES) version of the song.

What Sonic Fans Really, REALLY Want
I know what the Sonic fandom really, really wants.
They say that personal tastes are the window to one's soul. I'll extend that further by stating, whatever it is that a person likes, it's always a reflection of who they are on the inside. By this, I mean it literally; likes always speaks of the person, themselves.
Many within the Sonic fandom can be said to be exaggerated Sonics, in the sense of them generally having more extreme version of his personality. This means whatever they'd like, it would also, more or less, fit within Sonic's personal tastes.
Sonic has been described as a free spirit in the past, with him going by as he pleases, to the extent that Sonic never really has a place to actually call home. Not that he doesn't want a home, nor, for that matter, does it mean he can't get a home if he so wants; his popularity, alongside some of the friends that he has, means he can easily get a place to live in if he so wants. Rather, he's just a type who want to explore ever

I have concern for my viewers or client...
Because you wish to do something out of genuine concern for the clients or for the viewers, that you're really showing care towards your work, right?
Well, care is full way. To show care towards something means to be completely sincere towards it. This means you need to trust in your work correctly, not for what it's not, but rather for what it is. This means you need to use the Right Sort of Trust; to see the work either exactly for what it is, or as a representative there-of. The Right Sort of Trust is the only way verisimilitude, the believability of your work, can ever be truly achieved.

The 'You' Characterization
The "you" generalization is to be used whenever an entity's meant to be an in-universe incarnation of the user or viewer of the work.
The "you" generalization is essentially a non-biased entity that can be anyone and everyone seeing or using the work, in question. It happens to be one of the generalizations known for causing a specific effect to those who can't identify them as a generalization, namely causing the viewer or user to truly see those with the "you" generalized characterization as literally themselves, even if only unconsciously. There is, after all, only one "you" in existence.
The "you" generalization is incredibly viable within instances in interactive media (such as video games) where the user is supposed to be controlling an incarnation of themselves in-universe, rather than a specific character (who may or may not have a generalized characterization, themselves).
If an appearance of some kind is known to vary between members of the species those with the "you" genera

A Centauroid's Front Legs
Becoming a centauroid is equivalent to growing an extra set of arms, and then having said arms turn into animalistic legs, because seriously, the front legs of a quadrupedal creature is equivalent to our own arms, right down to moving very similarly.
The only difference between our own arms and the front legs of a quadruped is that what amounts to a quadruped's hand is, often enough, neither as dexterous as our own hands nor having the means to properly clasp and hold the entire hand around objects; our own thumbs allow us to surround the entire object with our own hand, thus allowing us to easily pick things up and to keep holding on.

Are you really showing care?
So, because you're doing something art-related for someone makes you think you're showing care towards your work or to that special someone, are you really showing that care?
To care for someone, or to care for your work, means to actually care for someone or your work. To merely think you're showing care when you're actually still doing something incredibly selfish is showing a mockery of care, not care, itself.
To take things personally, or to do things you like, is not the same thing as actually caring for something. To care for something means you wish the most betterment of something as it being itself. You're not that something. Therefore, to take your artwork personally, or to only do things that you like, you're showing care not to the artwork, not to what you're doing art for, but only for yourself.
Real care towards something can't come from something inherently selfish. To care towards something comes with seeing it for what it is as a requirement, not for what it's not. As

Regarding Deception
Deception is when an intentional falsehood is presented in an attempt to convince someone of an illusion.
Deception works precisely due to thoughts being forms of truth; as far as the deception goes, everything within is as real as one's own skin. Thus, it can catch out even the wisest of people if they're not paying attention enough.
Deception is not linked to gullibility; you can be fairly rigid in regards to what you're willing to trust, but once the deception gains hold, it doesn't matter whether you're gullible or not.
Properly thought out deception, in particular, is nearly indistinguishable from a truth being told; the more someone's good at deception, the more indistinguishable it is. This is how many thieves are able to bring forth a false sense of security, for instance, to even the most paranoid of people.
However, only someone who knows how to use the Purest of Trust and knows how to apply it through pure intent can ever create a deception truly and completely indistinguish

If it did not, musical formats such as module files, or even music made for the SNES, wouldn't be legal, as even like Nintendo, themselves, sample instruments from sampler-based synthesizers, non-sampler-based synthesizers and so on; these synthesizers and such often use sound engineering to create their own signature sounds. Thus, their sounds count as independent works from the perspective of copyright, even if they're not sampler-based instruments.

Precisely due to memories being building blocks and not thoughts, themselves, this document (Referring to "Focusing and Controlling your Ideals (TPWM)), for the longest time, did not talk beyond it, aside from a mention of ideals not being the only truths to describe a person. However, it is linked to one's ability to think things through, one's ability to recognize and trust thoughts.

Memories are the most prime example of the notion of thoughts being completely independent from the truths used to form them; whatever one recognizes, even if only unconsciously, gets stored away within one's mind as a building block to be potentially recalled for later. This is one of the very few instances where the mere concept of vital building blocks, those needed for the proper formation of a thought (or else the thought won't form as itself), to not apply; as long as a person's able to properly recall a thought, their memories of the thought act as an equal substitute for the relevant vital building blocks, corresponding to the original vital building blocks on a one-by-one scale.

Eidectic memory is the ability to recall, with precise accuracy, a piece of information within mere moments of witnessing it, or with very high accuracy a few moments there-after. It sounds mystical and mysterious, but since that many different people have memories that work according to the way it's been described, it is possible in real life.

Many with eidectic memory have it naturally; to remember things just comes that natural to them. However, it's possible for those who know how to recognize thoughts exactly for what they are, especially those who properly mastered using the Purest of Trust at will, to mimic eidectic memory. This involves taking keen advantage of the fact that thoughts happen to be independent of any and all building blocks used to form them; rather than trying to bother with the specific building blocks, and rather than bothering with one's memory, one just needs to focus on the characterization, the identity, of the original information. The thought will then rebuild itself, effectively granting the effect of eidectic memory.
Those with a keen ability to trust do not need eidectic memory to mimic the effects of having it; their ability to recognize the core fact, the very essence, the very identity, of what they're trying to remember, allows them to act as though they do have eidectic memory, even if that's just an illusion.

This is precisely due to thoughts not being the same thing as its building blocks. It's the end result we wan't; the means to get there does not matter in any regard, especially when the need to memorize comes to pass.

The only thing one needs is the ability to recognize the thought for what it is, to see the thought's own sheer identity, since thoughts are, after all, forms of truth.

This is even more so if the person not only has mastered the Purest of Trust, but also pure intent, and the ability to merge any and all side truths into the Purest of Trust, as to allow the Purest of Trust - or rather, the ability to use it at will - to sustain those using it without any physical side effects which would cause their mind to slow down (among possibly other dangerous things, as well).
So, my philosophy is about two years old, now.

Let me now point out, I've now finally concluded my training, for the real, final time. In addition to going beyond everything that I did for completion and mastery, I've managed to completely purify each and every single vital parts of my ideals; the ability to place trust in my thoughts, and the trained ability to focus.

Not even doubt can hamper me, now. I've now become a daydream counterpart to the purest exact.

I thank my dearest God for allowing me to get this far. Without him, and without the help that he gave me (including through, according to my own perspective, things like miracles and visions), I wouldn't had come this far. That, or I'd still have a long way to go.

The next impeding update to those four core documents shall be the last. Any further rewrites, I would no longer impact. The rewrite would occur once I've done with the songs on YouTube: Megalovania within the Organya format, and the remake demo soundtrack for the Karjamian Mythos. These, alongside a 3D model I'm making for VRChat (an avatar for myself, specifically), would prove the soundness of my philosophy within applications other than theory, applications other than literature and applications other than drawing.
