Before you read the latest chapter of Ape Gang’s lore, we recommend you revisit chapter 11 for a recap.

Build, Destroy, Repeat

Apes, hear me out before you dismiss my theory and start spreading FUD that Bozo’s lost the plot. Those of you who know me well know that I’ve been obsessed with ancient Toucan lore since 1979.

Today, I stand before you with a theory that could potentially reshape our perception of Ganganite’s role in our lives.

Beyond our dependence and fascination of Ganganite and its power, I believe I have discovered a connection that links Toucan burning, the very essence of Ganganite, and the delicate equilibrium of our ecosystem.

Could it be that Toucans, those seemingly ordinary birds, harbor a hidden power? Could they, in some way, influence the behavior of Ganganite?

Imagine, for a moment, that Toucans are omnipotent beings, rulers of Ganganite’s ebb and flow. Beings who revel in the power to build and destroy. Beings who enjoy bestowing Ganganite upon new species, observing ecosystems flourish, and later retracting it to observe how everything declines and civilizations vanish.

I have reached a point where I am fully convinced that Ape City, our beloved home, our struggles over the last many years, is merely a stage in the intricate cosmic spectacle of these unassuming birds.

Consider this twist. I’ve meticulously tracked Toucan attendance at the weekly burn parties, and I’ve noted a decline in their numbers.

This hints at something more profound and there’s no doubt in my mind that we should be preparing for an immediate future where Toucans start eliminating Ganganite from Ape City.

For Ape City to survive, this will require us to rethink how we use Ganganite and step up our efforts to protect our current supplies from the reckless spending sprees of our occupiers.

If only I had more proof.
