Mohamed Ababou / NHAE : Chronology (WIP)
2017 : Before the Recognition / The Pre-Shitpost Era
- (Feb 28, 2017) [https://www.ahewar.org/debat/show.art.asp?aid=549867]
First instance of Ababou posting about Numbers Have An End.
- (Mar 7, 2017) [http://www.alnoor.se/article.asp?id=317367]
We can notice a few subtle changes from this version to the one on Ahewar.org, showing it's not just a simple
copy & paste, although it kind of is, for the most part. The most interesting thing here, tho, is that we can find
his e-mail ! I'll talk about that later tho.

The "NHAE Bible" has finally been fully written and uploaded for once ! For those who don't know, this is something
Ababou wrote to cover most of his theory of Numbers Have An End. The file was uploaded on Scribd by a mysterious
kprepaa, who seems to usually exams and courses, mainly to learn maths or english. In case y'all wonder,
I did try to contact him in December 2019 but Scribd doesn't really allow us to contact other users unfortunately.
I think I did find him elsewhere,
although I don't really know what he'd do on a tunisian website as all evidence rather tend to show this krepaa
guy is moroccan. This tunisia-sat.com account seems much older (2012), so he could have moved to Morocco since then ?

Ababou starts his YouTube channel.

First video uploaded on the channel. Basically just a slideshow of the Scribd document. Usually, not the video people
will be refering to. First off, this video, just like the document, is therefore in arabic. But there's much more that
differs it from the second video...

Well first things first, this is finally translated in english ! You can see from the very first frames that the person
who helped him translate his PDF into english is a mysterious Nafissa Atlaɣ. I think we tried to reach her as well at
some point but without much success either (pretty recurring theme overall). This video is much more than just a
slideshow tho. You have the classical music in the background (yes I know Chopin isn't classical but romantic stfu
nerds), the gorgeous transition effects, the narrator... Talking about that, we have no ounce of idea who
narrated this. It could be Nafissa, but there's no way to know for certain. And before you ask, no it's absolutely not
Mohamed. We couldn't have told back then tho, I'll give you that, but I think you'll see why this can't be him later on.
- (≤ Nov 2017) [https://i.ibb.co/nb9vDKg/image.png]
We can see Mohamed started posting about his theory at the end of the year, if anything I'd say it's more than likely that
he started back in July or maybe even before that. The only screenshot I have of that era is from Nov 7 tho (the one in the
January 2018 : The First Moments of Fame
In January 2018, Ababou joins a few english mathematical groups such as
The Name Of This Group Is Left As An Exercise For Its Members
or, most notably, > implying we can discuss mathematics,
often abbreviated as >implying, or >m, which he joined a bit earlier, in mid-january.
There's not much to say there, so I'm just going to make a post dump instead :
February – April 2018 : The First Downfall
It kind of started in late January to be honest, but members started getting fed up by this whole thing :
In late January 2018, the Numbers Have an End group was created
in order to keep the meme going outside of >m (mainly), far from all the people who were kind of fed up with the joke.
In a long awaited post from the admin of >m from late March 2018, we see that Ababou, or even mentions of him, were no more
Let me be unequivocally clear.
Pretty much everyone agreed that it's fair, or even rejoiced that it was finally banned. To this day, it's still very touchy
to talk about it, but occasional mentions of him are kindaaaaa tolerated, but not so much either.
Ababou is banned. He will always be banned. He has tried to get into this group over 75 times. He has stalked myself and
other well-known users of this group, and harassed them. His name is blacklisted by Facebook, which is why his accounts are
Posting about him is not welcome here. If you do it, I will tell you not to. If I have to tell more than one or two people
about this in a short window of time, I will start muting people. If you are not aware, mutes on Facebook groups have been
extended from 1-24 hrs now up to a week. I am not above recording who I have muted for this and for how long, and escalating.
Take that shit elsewhere. I am DONE talking about it and policing it. No more.

Meanwhile, on the NHAE group, the OGs clearly lacked a lot of the most recurring names of Ababou shitposting we know now,
but it wouldn't take very long...
Springs 2018 – 2019 : The Renaissance & the Great Ideological Wars
In late April 2018, all the way to May 2018, the group saw an unprecedented boom of membership and shitposting. The Ababou
lore started developing in very peculiar ways. In this era, we started discussing the nature of Ababouian calculus, and some
of its fundamental properties. One of the most important ones was isofabism, which is the theory that f (🆎)=🆎 for any
function f. As far as i've searched, it's Graham Robertson who theorized isofabism in this post :
(May 11, 2018) [https://www.facebook.com/groups/1642548705804404/permalink/1756994861026454/]
Its origins aren't very clear. (Back then i thought it was just to justify that 🆎+1 or 🆎^🆎 or whatever wouldn't be greater
than 🆎, which is heretical and bade,,,, and i did use it as such :
Other controversial theories started popping as well, such as the theory of
Numbers Have To Leap The Naughtiness (Dingfei
Aoshu Zhang) were theorized a bit later as well :
(Jun 21, 2018)
Of course, from these theories, arised criticisms (e.g. Ryan Cole,
Jun 7, 2018).
Some advocated for a more moderate view of things, such as what we could call
weak isofabism, which states that f (🆎)=🆎 for all increasing function f, and not just all functions. But some,
started to doubt isofabism more radically, founding what we now refer to as anisofabism. A few precursor posts of this thought
started arising in July :
Anisofabism really became a whole movement in August :
After some point, we started LARPing for some reason and started waging wars for our ideologies, sometimes saying we
defend our lands on NHAELand and other weird shit like that. That was pretty much chaos for quite a while, and this led to
the creation of many chat groups. At some point, Markus added the admin of >m in one of these, and very quickly after he
kicked a bunch of us from >m. Fortunately we were able to come back, but oh boi that was such a shitshow lol.
February – May 2019 : Ababou's Hot Takes & The Second Downfall
So, in early 2019, Mohamed did many homophobic statements and people starting making fun of him :
And of course, Ababou's hot takes didn't end here. In early May 2019, he also started being racist lol :
And in late May 2019, when we thought his takes couldn't get any spicier, he started denying the fucking h*locaust
Like the last post of the last comment i've linked implies, we were a bunch to all leave the group that day, even a bunch of mods
like myself. Some of us joined back after a while, but for exemple took me until November 2019 to get my ass back on there. Not
just saying that for centering stuff on myself, it's just that i have no fucking idea what happened from June 2019 to November
2019... :' target='_blank'>
December 2019 – Spring 2020 : The Messenger / Discord Call Era
In december 2019, Ababou started calling us on the multiple NHAE Messenger groups we talked about earlier. He didn't talk at all,
but he did say at some point he'd use a mic. Meanwhile, i decided i'd start investigating more about the guy, and that's where
i discovered his email from his Alnoor bill that's linked earlier, so i mailed him on Dec 7, 2019. Meanwhile,
the problem of Ababou's mic wasn't solved. So we waited... and waited... At some point we kind of lost hope that he'd ever
actually get a mic and that we'd be ever able to hear his sweet, prophetical, finitist voice. Never will we be able to know
if he actually was the one to talk in the video. There is no more hope, life is meaningless and we're pecks of dust on a rock
drifting in space which someday will get devoured by the star which currently gives us heat and li- and then he actually did get
a mic oh well nevermind :
(Dec 21, 2020)
After this huuuuuuuuge event, he kept calling us and shit, at some point he even told us a story in arabic just because we said
why not, and also to verify if he really could be Ababou. We then invited him on Discord, in which he kept on talking and
listening to people in the voice chat, as well as keeping to write his "hot takes" and stuff again.
March 2020 : The Investigation Goes On
In March of 2020, he finally answered to my e-mail, and uhhhhh... Here's the conversation content.
So, basically, i talked to him about if he had a Facebook account, and at that time his account was deactivated so he said
"No i don't have an account". Then i asked him if he did have one, when he used it and where he posted stuff, and he said
"Yeah i had one and i only posted on NHAE", but he didn't tell when (there were a looooot of accounts — ad>min
wasn't joking — and a lot of which were deactivated at different times), so i asked him and he just sent me a link
to his new twitter account in the end. That was a really frustrating exchange, but at least we know the authentic Ababou
was indeed on the NHAE group.
