2020.09.15 03:00 boewhiskey They Came From the Sky and Stayed in the Sea (Part 1)

I walked up the carpeted stairs to my grandparents’ bedroom. The second floor only extended half the span of the first floor and had a balcony overlooking the large living room below. I walked over and gripped the wooden railing with a bittersweet feeling. My grandmother had been gone for almost two years and my grandfather had followed her only a few months ago. I loved this house but now that they were both gone, it felt as if something was missing, like a hole had opened up in the floor and stared back at me as a silent reminder of how incomplete it was now.
My mother was downstairs, working on cleaning out the kitchen and emptying the cupboards of all contents. I could hear the clanging of pots and pans as she set them on the counter and for a brief second, I let myself imagine that it was my grandfather, making dinner for us as we visited them. In this fantasy, I would open my eyes and look down to see my grandmother seated on the couch below, watching whatever show was on either Food Network or HGTV.
When I opened my eyes in reality, though, the scene was empty. The large TV wasn’t on, there was no bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper on the table next to the couch, and there was no grandmother dressed in her typical dark clothes that liked to attract the fur from their two dogs. There weren’t two dogs, either. Lily, the yellow lab, had passed on years prior and Shelby, the red golden retriever had left us shortly before my grandfather. There were only empty cushions and that invisible hole.
“Where’d you go?” I heard my mom call out.
I leaned over the railing and replied, “I’m up here. Thought I’d look at the books right quick while you’re doing that.”
“Okay. Hey, think you’ll be hungry soon? Maybe we should grab something to eat,” she said.
“Sounds good to me. What’d you have in mind?”
I heard her sigh, “I have no idea. We’ll figure it out when you’re done?”
“Yes, ma’am,” I called back to her and pushed myself away from the railing. I turned around to face the open door to their bedroom.
The moment I stepped into the room, I felt my heart twist. My grandmother’s perfume still lingered in the air here and I realized that this could very well be the last time I ever smelled it. I blinked back tears and took a deep breath, reminding myself that I was supposed to be the strong one right now. I knew that I couldn’t be there all the time for my mom but I would damn well hold it together when I was around her. She needed that.
The bookshelf was across from the door and took up almost the entire wall. It was two floor-to-ceiling units that were separated by a window overlooking the yard. I glanced outside and saw the gravel driveway and hilly landscape. It was beautiful here and the way that the house was built on the land, you could see the small city in the distance. I remembered the trips I used to take in the summer to visit before we moved up here as well. I would stay in the room below this one and at night, seeing the distant lights helped me sleep when the quiet and lack of city noise made it difficult.
I took another deep breath, probably the fiftieth of the day so far, and began scanning the shelves of books. My grandmother’s collection was on the left while the classic westerns on the right were my grandfather’s. I knew I would be sure to pick out at least three from each collection so that I not only had new things to read but also had some things that I could cherish knowing they belonged to my family.
In the end, I took home two and a half boxes of books. One was mainly cookbooks that I set aside downstairs but the other box and a half were from the shelves upstairs. I was never one to be interested in westerns but I picked out a few that seemed intriguing and made sure to also leave with my grandfather’s copy of *Lonesome Dove*. My mother had introduced me to the television series version of it when I was younger and it held a deep place in my heart.
Carrying the boxes into my apartment proved to be the most difficult part. When we had loaded up my truck with the items I would be taking, my mom and I had the use of a cart to move them from inside and down the wooden ramp to the driveway. As I struggled to haul the boxes in, I wondered if I should have asked to borrow the cart when I had the chance. Of course, in the end, I managed to get everything inside with a combination of pushing, pulling, and carrying.
Once my own little living room was overtaken with the new-old stuff that didn’t have a home yet, I sat down in my recliner and took a moment to relax and catch my breath. I had no idea where I would put all of this stuff and my husband wouldn’t be too happy to come home to a messy room. I knew that he would understand, though, plus I would be able to tell him that the carved wooden bear that stood outside my grandparents’ front door was to be ours as soon as we picked it up. That was the one thing he requested we have if possible.
After staring at the boxes and stacks of items in front of me for a good ten minutes, I convinced myself to get up and start at least organizing the stuff into what room they would likely go to. I would need a beer or a glass of wine to even begin, though, I decided. As I entered the kitchen and reached for the bottle of red wine on the counter, I took note of the time that was displayed on the oven. It was a little after five which meant my husband would be home soon. Instead of cooking, I opted to talk to him about ordering a pizza when he got home instead.
With a glass full of more wine than what was likely necessary, I situated myself on the floor amidst the boxes and scattered items. As I sorted through everything, I sipped the wine and tried to keep my mind in busy mode rather than memory mode. This proved to work until my husband got home.
“What the hell? What’s all this?” He asked after stepping through the front door. I looked up at him from my place on the floor and stammered before my voice broke and I just started crying. He stepped over things and knelt beside me, wrapping his arms around me. “Hey, hey, it’s okay. Is this all from your grandparents’ house?”
I nodded and lifted my head from where it had been pulled to his chest. I picked up my almost empty glass of wine and pointed to one pile then another while blubbering, “K-kitchen stuff. Look, some new pans and plates. Uh, clothes…”
I trailed off, sniffling while the sudden tears tapered off, and he immediately spoke as he surveyed everything, “Books? Did you take their entire collection?”
“No,” I pouted at him and finished my wine with a quick toss of my head as if I was taking a shot of tequila. “I didn’t even take half.”
He gave a soft chuckle and kissed my forehead, “Okay, baby. Find anything for me?”
I nodded and set aside the now empty glass before reaching into one of the boxes and shifting the hardcovers around. I held a few to the side and showed him the title of one of the westerns.
“I got a few of these you might like and when we go pick up the bear, you can see what else is left if you want,” I told him, also slyly including that the bear would be ours.
“The bear? We get the bear?” He asked excitedly. I nodded with a wide smile and he kissed my forehead again.
It was a week before I began looking through the books and taking them out of the boxes I had brought them home in. I smiled with each title and felt pleased that I had snagged my grandmother’s copy of a completed works-type volume of Jane Austen. When my husband and I had gone back, he picked out a few more books himself. Finally putting both hauls together revealed that we somehow ended up with two copies of the large, thick *Lonesome Dove* tome.
*Weird*, I thought. I wasn’t sure why my grandfather had owned two copies. I picked both up to see if one was a special edition or if there were any differences. Immediately I noticed a major difference: one of the books felt lighter, much too light to make sense. I set them on the floor in front of me and opened the covers. The pages shifted as I opened one but the pages of the second copy didn’t seem to have much give to them. I closed the first one and focused solely on the other. After turning the first few pages that had the publishing information and title, I found that the book was hollowed out. A space had been cut out of the pages and then the remaining edges had been stuck together, likely glued, to create a hidden storage spot.
Stored in the book was a slightly smaller leather-bound volume that at first glance, looked like an old journal. Had one of my grandparents kept a secret diary? Needless to say, I was curious. I tipped the Lonesome Dove book over and let the leather book fall out of its hiding place. Once released, I looked it over but found nothing on the front or back cover. It was a simple journal from the looks of it, with an aged leather flap that extended from the back cover and over the front edge, held in place by a simple leather cord that wrapped around the entire book.
Without hesitation, I pulled the cord from its place and opened the book to see the first page, which read: “Sophia Campbell, Events of the Summer of 1990.” Two things struck me immediately. The first was that 1990 was the year I was born, coincidentally in the summer. Secondly, I had never heard of Sophia Campbell in any family story or passing mention. My grandfather’s last name was Campbell but there is also a large number of unrelated people in the world with that same last name. The year of the journal ruled out it being an old family keepsake from some distant generation that came decades before. *But why was it hidden away?* I asked myself silently.
If I had been intrigued before, I was definitely interested now. I temporarily abandoned my work and moved from the floor to a chair where I would be more comfortable while I read. At first, I expected it to be a simple, typical diary but what I read confused and concerned me.
“I have decided to record what happened two years ago in the summer of 1990. I don’t really know what good it will do but I have not been able to speak about it and maybe writing it down will help me understand it or at least get it out of my mind.
It began in June, at least as far as I can remember of the beginning. Towards the end of the month, I began having odd dreams. There wasn’t much to them at first. I was near a coast, in a wooded area. It was dusk and I could see the sun sinking in the distance. Animal life was abundant and noisy around me but it was comforting, I knew everything was how it should be. Once the sun completely set, though, a strange smell filled the air and crept up my nostrils. With the smell, fear came. It wasn’t just a little nervousness over the night or foreign aroma, it was pure terror. I began running in the direction opposite of the shore the second the trees and creatures of the small forest fell silent. And then I woke up.
I had that dream without any change for a week. I had no idea what it meant at the time nor did I yet realize that I was not myself in the dream. During the day, I felt uneasy and had a sense of dread that I could not place. I assumed it had something to do with the odd images I saw while I slept, the fear somehow sneaking into my waking life and holding me captive.
One week and two days after the dreams first began, they changed. I remember that it was the fourth of July and by the time I crawled into bed, I was exhausted from celebrations and drinking. The nights before that one and since the dreams had first begun, I continually went to bed with a frustrated feeling as my body would try to fight off the sleep that would bring those dreams. That night, however, I was too drunk to care and all I wanted was to close my eyes and drift away.
It began the same as the others. When I began running, though, I realized for the first time that I was running on four legs, not two. I recognized immediately that I was an animal with strong dark legs that ended in hooves from what I could tell. For some reason, this didn’t frighten me, though. On the contrary, it pleased me as I knew I would be able to run faster than my human body would have allowed. I ran and dodged fallen trees, bushes, low-hanging limbs, all with the grace and knowledge of an animal that knew this forest inside and out. I’m not sure how far I had gotten before I heard a deafening sound.
When I looked back in the direction I had come from, the direction where the sound seemed to be, I saw bright blazes of red and orange licking the trees in the distance. My heart couldn’t beat any quicker, although it tried. My ears were ringing and instinct told me to continue fleeing but I also felt protective of my home. Smaller animals that had been silent only seconds before, burst into a flurry of cries, chitters, screeches, and running. They were all desperately trying to get away from whatever had made the sound.
My legs faltered in place as the ground shook beneath me violently. It was time to go, I would have to return later to find out more. I turned, putting my back to the terror once more, and continued to charge through the forest.
The dream ended and I awoke with a start, at least I thought I had. I sat up in my bed and tried to steady my breathing. The soft ticking of the clock on my bedside table seemed to slow down and take longer between each tick. As I focused my ears on the confusing change, I began to hear a voice speaking. It wasn’t like a voice just from the other room or outside, it was distant and close all at the same time. It whispered in a hoarse, gruff voice, speaking a language I didn’t recognize. Honestly, it sounded like gibberish mixed with a heavy Scottish accent. I couldn’t understand a single word it spoke. It remained low, barely more than a melodic growl. There was a sudden bang on my window that made me jump and scream in shock.
Then I truly woke up. I was gasping for air and looked around the room frantically, trying to tell if I was in the real world or dreaming again. Patty, my roommate, came rushing into my bedroom, wielding a bat. When she saw me seated in my bed, she flipped the light-switch on and asked me what was wrong. I couldn’t find more words to explain anything other than ‘bad dream’. She sat with me while I calmed myself and then we both went back to bed after agreeing that maybe I shouldn’t drink so much right before I sleep.
I had the same dream the night after, and the one after that and again after that. The dream was almost the same each night, the only difference occurring in the second phase of the two-part dream. With every new night, the voice slowly became louder. I didn’t scream or wake Patty up again, though, when the bang always came from the window and jolted me from my slumber.
For nine nights I had that dream. It changed the night my niece was born. The thirteenth of July was an exciting and happy day. My sister gave birth to a small but healthy and beautiful baby girl in the early evening. That night, though, brought terror to my mind.
The dream again continued the same way but where it would switch from the forest to my bedroom, it instead changed from the early night sky to a deeper darkness that surrounded me on all sides as I stood at the edge of the forest, looking in. I just knew already that it had been hours since the running scene and I felt like I was trying to decide what to do, torn between my fear for my safety and my concern to find out what happened to my home. In the end, I found myself walking into the trees.
I took careful steps and approached with caution. It felt like hours before I reached a large mossy boulder that I knew meant I was close to the shoreline. The trees would soon begin to thin out and make way for the bluff that extended above the sandy beach below. From there, I would be able to look down and see if I could determine what caused the terrifying sound.
I smelled the recently burnt trees and branches before I saw them. Mangled trunks and blackened earth riddled the edge of the cliff, the edge that was way too close. It wasn’t where it should have been; this was new, this was wrong. My breath quickened as I approached the edge to peer down into the water below. The moon broke through the clouds as if to personally assist my sight. Far below where I stood, there was steam rising from the ocean. As the breeze blew it away occasionally, I could see that a large section of the bluff had been taken out, creating a new pocket where the land met the sea. There was something in the water still, jagged and astoundingly giant with only a tiny portion of it rising about the tumultuous laps of the disturbed water.
I saw more animals on the newly changed beach, all looking at the same foreign object that I was. Sensing movement, I looked directly to my left and then my right and saw even more creatures approaching the broken edge as well. We all glanced at one another, knowing that we were all together in our confusion and fright. What had happened here?
When I looked back down to the beach and the water, I saw a new figure standing in the sand, just far close enough to the ocean that tiny ripples lapped at the feet. It was a human, I knew immediately, but I was confused because she looked unlike any other human I had seen, or at least that the body I was in had seen. Her hair and skin were both light and the clothes she wore differed from any other. Had she done this? Was she connected somehow?
I felt anger rise in me for a brief moment before the young woman turned her head slowly and looked up at me. Even from this distance, I could sense how sad she was. She didn’t do this; this made her heart break as much as it did ours. Her face lowered when a rumble sounded through the atmosphere. The thing in the water cracked and shifted, changing before our eyes. We all watched with terrified anticipation. Nothing should be able to manipulate itself like that. A jet of steam rose high into the night air and with it, figures poured from the opening. They moved fluidly over the top of the water, like smoke. Their bodies twisted and stretched as they traveled silently towards the land. There was no specific form to any of them and I didn’t understand what they were or how they moved.
Once they reached the shore, they pulled themselves together into some sort of vaporous mass with long tentacle-like arms. When the moon shone on the thing, I saw that instead of just smoke, they seemed to be made of sparkling dust. I looked to the sky and realized how much they seemed to mirror the expanse of stars and galaxies above us.
I lowered my gaze just in time to see the ever-shifting thing shoot out in many directions, its body reaching high and far to snatch up some of us that were there. I watched as different creatures on the beach were enveloped in the starry dark form. They screamed in pain and horror as whatever this thing was made of surrounded them and poured into their mouths, eyes, nose, and ears. I turned to run as I saw tendrils sliding up the cliff-face towards where I and more stood looking down on the scene. We were quick to all start our retreat but still not quick enough.
A shadowy appendage wrapped itself around my neck and held me in place while it stretched to grasp my midsection and my legs. It wasn’t solid but felt like an icy wind against my skin. I didn’t understand why I couldn’t break through and get away from it. I let out a shrill whinny and reared up, planning on throwing myself back down and charging away. The swirling mass of space dust held me upright and instead of charging away and feeling the burning of my muscles as I fled, I felt frigid fingers open my mouth and slide down my throat. My eyes burned as they were covered in darkness as it pushed around into my sockets. My ears buzzed before everything went silent with their assault into those orifices. My nostrils felt as if they were filling with water as it crept into my sinuses. My entire body was being overtaken and all I could do was scream in agony as every cell of my being felt like it was being lit on fire made of ice.
That’s when I finally moved into the second part of the dream. I seemed to awaken in my own room and bed, the voice was louder than before but still, I couldn’t understand anything it said. The clock slowed and stopped for the first time right before the bang came at the window. As I was yanked back to reality, I heard one final thing from the voice of the dream; the first thing it said that I could understand. In that gravely, deep voice, I heard the words ‘Crater Look Cove’.”
It was at this point that I stopped reading. It was getting close to the time my husband would be getting off of work and I needed to get dinner started. I was also utterly confused. From the dates and relationship mentioned, this Sophia person was supposedly my aunt, an aunt that I was sure I had never even heard a slight mention of. I grabbed my phone and sent a quick text to my mom, simply asking who Sophia Campbell was. Before waiting to see if I would get an immediate response, I left the chair and headed to the kitchen to figure out what to make for dinner.
A few minutes later, I heard my phone ring and I paused what I was doing to answer it. Checking the screen first, I saw that it was my mother.
“Hey,” I answered.
“Where did you hear that name?” She asked without even a greeting.
“Uh, I found a book with it written in it. Why? Who is she?” I queried.
I heard Mom let out a long, exasperated sigh before she responded, “Sophia is complicated. I’d rather not talk about it over the phone. What are you doing for lunch tomorrow?”
“I have nothing planned. What did you have in mind?”
“I have a few errands to run in the morning but I can grab something when I’m done. How about you come up to the house and we’ll eat and talk about it.”
“Sure, just let me know when,” I agreed.
“I’ll text you and let you know,” she said. We exchanged a short goodbye and hung up. I felt even more confused than before. From her tone, it sounded like this information was something possibly painful to even think about.
I filled my husband in on the journal and the planned meeting with my mom. He agreed that the entire situation seemed off and asked me to keep him updated.
The following day, after hearing from my mom that she was ready to meet back at the house, I got in my truck and headed that way. It was only a twenty-minute drive but it felt like it took longer because I was a mix of excited and anxious with every nerve in my body feeling like they were buzzing with faint electricity.
Mom was finishing up a couple of BLT’s when I arrived and she was acting like it was just a normal day. I wondered if she had changed her mind about telling me. We shared unimportant small-talk during the meal and afterward, I helped her clean up the paper plates and wipe down the counter to rid it of any leftover crumbs from the bread. We both walked out to the front porch for her to have a cigarette. I sat on the bench quietly, waiting as patiently as possible for either her to bring it up or for me to figure out how to delicately bring it up. Thankfully, she broke the silence and began the conversation.
“Sophia was my sister, my little sister. She was only a year younger but sometimes it was so easy to forget that she wasn’t older. You knew her when you were a baby, but she hasn’t been around in a long time. At least not around you,” Mom started.
“Why not? Did she… did she die?” I asked her, trying to keep my tone gentle.
She shook her head, “No, she’s still alive. You have to understand something, though. Something happened to her. No one really knows what the catalyst was but something inside her mind broke. A couple of years after you were born, she had to be committed. She became delusional, started hallucinating, hearing things and voices, and became terrified of the ocean. She’s the reason your grandparents moved here, to be honest. Well, part of the reason.”
I sat without speaking a word. I felt my eyebrows furrow as I looked at her. I wanted to say something but I couldn’t think of anything at all. After a moment of silent staring into the distance, she looked at me and gave me a sad smile. Then she took another drag off of her cigarette and continued, blowing the smoke out between her words.
“When it became apparent that something was wrong, your grandparents took her from her apartment and moved her back into their home. She seemed like she might get better but we made a mistake. I thought it would be a fun idea to take you to the beach one weekend. You were a toddler and somehow we hadn’t yet traveled the hour and a half to the shore for you to play yet. Sophia seemed like her normal self before that, so she joined us. Looking back now, I know that she was nervous but I just didn’t realize it at the time. I was too focused on the excited baby who seemed to know we were going on a new adventure,” she paused and winked at me. “While there, though, she completely lost it.
After two or three hours of playing in the sand with you, she stood up and just walked to the water. At first, she stopped when the water was only around her ankles. Then after staring at the horizon for a bit, she continued walking into the waves. Once a wave splashed over her head, my dad, your grandfather, rushed out to bring her back in. I’m not sure what she said but he told us later that when he got to her, she was crying and yelling. By the time they reached us on the beach, the yelling had become incoherent mumbling and she was unresponsive. We left then and for the entire trip home, she barely blinked and only sat unnaturally rigid while mumbling to herself.
She was taken to a doctor a few days after that and put on some sort of medication. Again, we all thought things would get better and they did for a few years. You only saw her a couple of times after that and you probably don’t even remember. Then, in ’98, she just vanished one night, with only a note that said something about her having to go to some cove. We all searched and made calls for weeks with no luck. Then my dad got a call from a hospital in Georgia. They had her and requested that he get there immediately. I never found out what happened when she left, where exactly she went, or how she even got to the hospital. Our parents began traveling and searching for a new place. They fell in love with Montana and the mountains and distance from the southern coast seemed to calm her down.
She still had to be kept in a hospital, though, as she had become a danger to those around her and herself. She’s been there ever since.”
I blinked and stared at the wooden floor of the porch, still unsure of what to say. Finally, a single question formed in my mind and I asked her, “Do you ever see her?”
“Yes,” she answered, looking at me with sorrowful eyes. “I visit her from time to time and she knows who I am but I don’t go very often. It breaks my heart. I know Mom and Dad used to go at least once a month.”
“Could… could I go see her?” I stammered.
“I’m not sure-” she began but cut herself off. “I can see about arranging that. Just don’t go expecting anything.”
I nodded in response. I didn’t stay much longer after that and as I drove home, I resolved to finish the diary as soon as I walked in the door.
I ended up failing on the specifics of that plan, but an hour later, I was curled up in my chair with the book in my lap and a glass of wine to wash down all the information with. I took a big sip of the red liquid and continued Sophia’s tale.
“1998. For a while, I believed everyone who told me I was crazy. But the dreams are back.
They’re almost the same as before, so I dug out this old diary to add to it.
As they did before, they start the same then continue to show me more. Once the icy pain subsided, my horse-form awoke again, this time to the afternoon sun. I felt hollow on the inside like something was missing, taken from me by that cloud of dust and space. I pushed myself to stand on my four legs and realized that I was no longer on the cliff, but on the beach below it. The bodies of my forest brethren were scattered along the sand. A few others were waking up as well. Even in my groggy state, I saw that each animal that stood, sharing in my confusion and aching body, was changed.
There was a squirrel that had once been covered in soft brown fur but now looked mottled and decaying. The tip of its tail was missing and bones in its hand were exposed. One of its cheeks looked like it was drooping off of its skull. I saw several birds that had holes in their beaks and were missing patches of feathers. The skin where those feathers had once been was black and appeared cracked. I saw a buck with one antler hanging off of his head while the other was splintered painfully in strange directions. In his jaw was a large gash that exposed teeth that were rotting and gums that oozed sickly pus. He looked as if he had lost half of his weight in less than a day and just below his skin, I saw ribs that were painfully cracked and contorted, some that threatened to pierce his flesh with every breath he took.
All of the animals were like this. Every last one of them that was on the beach with me. I finally looked down at my legs and saw exposed bone, muscle, and broken hooves. What had happened to us?
Once we were all awake, a roar came from the water. We all looked at the ocean in unison but could not see what make the call. Then, without any more warning, I felt my body take a step forward, then another, and another. Every creature was walking towards the ocean and I assumed that like me, they had no control over their bodies. Something else was doing this, calling us to the depths, controlling our movements.
The water, now calm, rose steadily as we trudged through the sand on unresponsive legs. The dream switched the moment I felt salty water fly into my nostrils and begin filling my lungs.
The rest was the same as before, save one detail: I was now in my current bedroom and not the bedroom I had at the apartment. The voice started out quiet but rose in volume to barely over a whisper. The following night it was the same, only growing even louder.
It keeps coming to me night after night and for the past three nights, the voice has been deafening. I fear it won’t stop until I listen to it.
At first, my search for a place called Crater Look Cove turned up nothing. I found that there is a Crater Cove in Australia but I felt in my gut that wasn’t the right place. I knew it had to be closer than that.
I finally came across a small article in a travel magazine by chance. It talked about the different coves in Georgia and something just clicked. I did some more research and found that there is a small, barely known cove in Georgia that doesn’t even show up on any maps. Its name is History Look Cove but years ago was known as Crater Look Cove. I have to go there. I have to find out what this all means.
I know they’re out there, those things that came from the sky. I know they’re in the water. They made it their home. I’ve been terrified to go near the ocean and I feel frightened to be going back, especially to their domain. But I need to know.”
I closed the journal with a strange feeling. There was no more writing. The pages were blank. I don’t know if my aunt Sophia made it to Crater Look Cove or History Look Cove or whatever it’s called now. From what I do know, that was the final straw. She’s been locked in a hospital ever since.

2020.07.05 08:30 Shaneinthemembrane12 When did this happen?

Can anyone explain the timeline of Sophia bush and Chad Michael Murray’s relationship on One Tree Hill. Like at which part of out of the seasons did they start dating, get married, separated, and divorced. This idea always fascinated me like when they danced to Boston at what where they in their relationship. It just seems so timely and 10x sadder for me due to the real life context of the situation.

PART 1 : Turkey-Syria Relations and Related Effecting conflicts

Part 1 aims to establish the past relationship between Turkey and Syria, in context of the modern day events. Furthermore, Part 1 also focuses on events and terrorist attacks that have partaken in Turkey in the duration of the Syrian Conflict and Syrian Refugee crisis.

1.1: Turkey's relation to Syria (Türkiye'nin Suriye ile olan bağı ve iletişimi.)

-When did Turkey get involved with Syria? With whom?
-Why is Turkey significant to the Syrian Crisis issue?

>EXCERPT 2
“…These developments contributed to the toughening of the Turkish stance toward the Arab world in general and Syria in particular. In a memorandum issued on January 23, 1996, Turkey charged Syria with having engaged in de facto aggression by supporting the PKK and stressed that, according to Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, Turkey was entitled to adopt self-defense measures against Syria. In the same memorandum, Turkey underlined that normalization of relations between Turkey and Syria required that Syria cease support for the PKK and reportedly registered for the first time the official Turkish demand that Ocalan and his collaborators be turned over to Turkish authorities.”

“What were the terms of the agreement?
1-Syria will not allow any activities that dangers Turkey’s safety and stability. Syria will blockade all attempts of PKK Weapons, Logistics and Propaganda.
2-Syria announces the PKK as a terrorist organization. Syria blockades all PKK activity in Syria.
3-Syria will ban any PKK training camps.
4-Syria will blockade PKK transit to third-party countries.
5-Syria will not allow PKK Leaders to enter Syrian soil and will instruct Syrian customs accordingly.

“The Turkish Parliament today dealt a heavy blow to the Bush administration's plans for a northern front against Iraq, narrowly rejecting a measure that would have allowed thousands of American combat troops to use the country as a base for an attack.
...More Turkish lawmakers supported the measure than opposed it, but the resolution failed because the total number of ''no'' votes and abstentions exceeded the number of favorable votes...
The final tally was 264 to 251, with 19 abstentions.”

>EXCERPT 2
“...The Turkish public and parliament were mostly against war.
Although the administration, army, and foreign ministry were not crazy about the idea of war, they did not wish to disrupt relations with the United States, a strong ally. On the other hand, they were reluctant to appear to be part of an effort to remove a neighboring country’s regime by force, regardless of how bad that regime was. The European Union, which Turkey was trying to join, was divided on the issue of Iraq.”

“Serious disturbances in Syria would be a major expansion of the wave of unrest tearing through the Arab world for more than a month in the wake of pro-democracy uprisings that overthrew the autocratic leaders of Tunisia and Egypt…
… In the capital, plainclothes security officers forcefully dispersed about a dozen protesters calling for more freedoms in the country, human rights activists said earlier in the day.”

“On Monday, in a dramatic series of urgent flashes, state television said hundreds of gunmen had taken over Jisr al-Shughour, which lies about 20km (12 miles) from the Turkish border, and had committed "a real massacre".
A report said the fighting had begun at dawn, when "armed gangs" ambushed police as they approached the town "to rescue citizens being terrorised". Twenty officers reportedly died…
“…Many government buildings were attacked and burned, causing further casualties, it added. The overall death toll for security forces was put at 120.”
“…More civilians would inevitably be killed and thousands would flee their homes if the tanks come in, it warned.”
>EXCERPT PART 2

“The protesters continue to insist that the movement is entirely peaceful, and to scorn the government's talk of armed gangs.
But government officials, like spokeswoman Reem Haddad, are adamant that groups of gunmen are behind the killing.
"I wouldn't count them as civilians because civilians are people who carry no arms," she told the BBC World Service.
"These people are dead and we have bodies with names and dates of birth. It's not something that the Syrian government has invented."
>EXCERPT PART 3
The BBC's Jim Muir in Beirut reports that protesters say some army personnel may have deserted to join the uprising.
"The soldiers were coming our way. Then they were shot in the back by some Syrian security elements," one resident told BBC Arabic.
There is even speculation of a mutiny at the security headquarters, and that personnel who refused to fire on demonstrators were executed.
“Before Monday, the government said more than 160 security forces personnel had died since the uprising began in mid-March. Human rights activists meanwhile said that more than 1,200 people had been killed.”

“If claims of an armed rebellion are proven, it would mark the first time that citizens had taken up weapons in large numbers. Protests have been taking place at least weekly in many cities, including the capital, Damascus. Human rights groups claim that more than 1,000 people have been killed, nearly all of them demonstrators campaigning for widespread democratic reforms.”

"It’s the regime using violence
Eyewitness accounts painted a very different picture.
"It’s tragic. They have burned down all the crops and the villagers are fleeing," said a resident of Jisr al-Shughur who fled on Friday with four people injured by the military assault, heading to the Turkish border. He said he had witnessed the army opening fire on fleeing villagers with machine guns.
Turkish officials said more than 4,000 Syrians have now crossed into Turkey, whose prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said President Assad, whom he once described as a "brother," had acted with "savagery" against his own people. “

>EXCERPT 1
“While Islamic State tightens its grip on Kobane, Turkey is still holding fire on deploying troops. It remains reluctant to help the Kurdish militia in Syria, which has close links with Kurdish fighters here.
And the Turkish government has again called for the US-led coalition to target the Assad regime as well as IS - and for a no-fly zone to ease the refugee influx into Turkey. But neither goal seems within reach, the US state department reiterating that the air strikes remained focused on IS alone. The Kurds say Turkey's failure to act will lead to the fall of Kobane.”

>EXCERPT PART 1
“By deliberately demolishing civilian homes, in some cases razing and burning entire villages, displacing their inhabitants with no justifiable military grounds, the Autonomous Administration is abusing its authority and brazenly flouting international humanitarian law, in attacks that amount to war crimes,” said Lama Fakih, Senior Crisis Advisor at Amnesty International.”
>EXCERPT PART 2
In February 2015, the Autonomous Administration’s military wing, the YPG (the People’s Protection Units), took control of the area, which had been under IS control, and began demolitions, displacing villagers. Researchers visiting Husseiniya saw ruins of destroyed homes and interviewed eyewitnesses.
“…They pulled us out of our homes and began burning the home… they brought the bulldozers... They demolished home after home until the entire village was destroyed,” said one witness.
>EXCERPT PART 3
“In villages south of the town of Suluk, some residents said YPG fighters had accused them of supporting IS and threatened to shoot them if they did not leave…
In other cases, villagers said YPG fighters had ordered them to leave threatening them with US coalition airstrikes if they failed to comply.
“They told us we had to leave or they would tell the US coalition that we were terrorists and their planes would hit us and our families,” said one resident, Safwan.
The YPG has justified the forced displacement of civilians by saying it was necessary for the civilians’ own protection or militarily necessary.”

Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu says a suspect had been identified and his international and domestic links are being investigated.
However, Selahattin Demirtaş, the co-leader of the pro-Kurdish HDP Party was skeptical of authorities’ reactions:
“Recent history in Turkey shows us that those responsible for massacres in which the state played a role, which were carried out with support from within the state, have never been caught. Our recent history is full of numerous examples of this,” he told the press.”

The first took place in front of the central train station in Ankara in October last year, marking the deadliest ever terror attack in Turkish history as it killed 103 civilians.
Although the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) did not claim responsibility for the attack, prosecutors investigating the incident found links between the two suicide bombers and the jihadist organization.
The second and third attacks were little different from the first one. Car bombs were used in both attacks and they exploded in the capital’s most crowded areas. The second attack killed 29 people, including many military personnel, while the third killed 35 civilians.”

2019.07.06 15:00 s810 Old Austin Tales: Cedar Choppers & The Travis County Dog Wars - 1902-1923

There are few photos of the things I'm going to impart to you today but I usually start with a related photo from the UNT archive so here is one roughly related for today:
Eanes Rock Schoolhouse Students Outside - "Photograph of Eanes Rock Schoolhouse students having lunch outside. They are seated in front of a pile of rocks with trees in the background, on the back of the photo '1930s Students having lunch in the Eanes Cafeteria' is written in blue pen." - 1930
See how their school 'cafeteria' was just the kids sitting around outside the old Eanes Rock School? Not sure if this was an outside picnic or if they didn't usually eat inside the one room school. If you have been here a while you might recognize the name 'Eanes' as the name of the area school district that is home to football powerhouse Westlake High School. Westlake High isn't in AISD or even in Austin proper, but instead is in Westlake Hills, TX to the west and southwest of town. Yet future NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Drew Brees went to "Austin Westlake" High School according to the statkeepers. This is meant to differentiate it from another Westlake High in Ft. Worth, but it's still accurate. The Village of Westlake Hills, TX was founded by an Austinite in the mid 20th century. Where did these communities like Rollingwood and Westlake Hills come from? What was in the area of these vast suburban neighborhoods and office complexes off Loop 360 before the 20th century? Even some native Austinites who grew up knowing the area only as 'the rich part of town' might not realize what the places used to be known for before all that. These are separate areas that have a history all their own, but their histories are intertwined with the history of Austin and the Texas Hill Country at large. Today using help from a few different sources I'm going to attempt to tell an abridged version of the entire tale of these towns which block in Austin from the southwest, and in doing so tell the tale of one particular series of incidents that took place in the early 20th century between Austinites and rural area residents to the west known as cedar choppers.
First a little backstory. In previous posts I've talked about how the first settlers to the county were farmers and ranchers who settled in an area that is today east of town. Govalle and Montolpolis were early settlements around the same time as Waterloo, which eventually became Austin. As we all know, The Balcones Fault Line divides the geology of Travis County into fertile blackland prarie to the east and hardscrabble limestone hills to the west. When the first bold farmers dared to settle west of this boundary in the hills to the west of the nascent City of Austin in the late 1840s and 1850s, it was a lot harder to farm the land, and the area was a known hangout for several roving bands of Comanche and Apache. The new settlers in this area were a hardy bunch. There were Scotch-Irish, Swedes, Italians and Germans, not totally Americanized. They had first originally settled in Appalachia and then migrated down the different mountain ranges of the South-Eastern US and through the pine forests of East Texas until they could go west no more. West there was only desert and Comanche. So they settled in well watered hills west of town and eventually all throughout the hill county. They brought with them their adapted ways of the southeast. Some today might call them 'mountain folk' and some others might call them early versions of 'hillbillies'. Both would be right on some counts and wrong on others. Settlers continued to come to Western Travis County throughout the 19th century although the area was known for being a hotbed of Counter-rebel Union insurgent activity during the Civil War. They wanted no part in hostilities and just wanted to be left alone to work their land. These hillbillies didn't own slaves. They didn't believe in it and the few who did were too poor for it anyway. The land was poor for farming and after the fields were abandoned and the livestock had eaten most of the grass away, native species of cedar trees grew over the spent rocky earth. These were not quite like the cedar trees we love to hate today, which are called 'sap' cedar (Ashe juniper) and grows in clumps of trees. This was something called 'Heart cedar' which grew individually as tall and as fat around as small pine trees. The people were a resourceful lot and so they started utilizing the resources they had, and by the turn of the 20h century mostly all they had was a hell of a lot of cedar trees.
Now before the first dam across the Colorado was built in 1893 forming what was at the time called Lake MacDonald (now Lake Austin), it was a lot easier to cross the river when it wasn't flooded. There were several crossings, called 'fords' where you could mostly walk across without getting wet with maybe a little help from some strategically placed stones. The most famous one that survives in name only is Marshall Ford which is the area around where Mansfield Dam was built in the 1940s. Tinnin Ford Road off of Riverside Drive marks the rough spot of another one, although it was called 'Stone's Ford' on old maps. In places where the river ran deeper and before the first Congress Ave. Bridge was erected in the 1880s there were small ferry services but these weren't meant for more than one or two horse carts at a time and ran the risk of capsizing.
After the dam was built, the area west of where Tom Miller Dam is today was almost totally cut off from the City of Austin. If you think about it, most of the modern bridges we depend on today except for the Congress Ave. Bridge and the Union Pacific train bridge were built after 1935. There was no way to cross the lake/river for many miles upstream for many years, even after first dam busted in 1900 (it was rebuilt around 1913 and then busted again). This kept these 'mountain folk' isolated, who by that time were well on the way to becoming known as 'cedar choppers' in the City of Austin. The original settling families intermarried among one another and eventually formed interwoven 'clans' that started feuds with other clans.
Sometime I think in the 1980s someone wrote a high school report on the history of Westlake Hills, and I don't know how, but it ended up in the UNT archive through the Westbank Community Library. It's not a bad writeup, I would have given it an A. I'm going to quote a little bit from it to advance the story:
...
After the (Civil) War, a few settlers gradually moved into the hills. The land was too rugged for farming, so most families raised cattle, sheep and goats. They made lye soap, cooked on wood stoves, and used coal oil for lighting. In 1872 Robert Eanes and George Norvell built a log schoolhouse near the present Eanes School. They furnished it with split-log benches. Children wrote on slates using native limestone as chalk. The schoolhouse was also used for church services, conducted by circuit-riding preachers, until a stone church was built in 1928. As the years went by, a community grew up around the schoolhouse.
The first Austin Dam (site of the present Tom Miller Dam) was built across the Colorado River in 1893. The dam broke in the flood of 1900 but was rebuilt in 1913. Before these dams were built, Austin folks forded the river at Taylor's Slough, driving their buggies and wagons into the hills so they could chop firewood. The newly created Lake McDonald (now Lake Austin) prevented anyone from fording the river. Except for a road to the southwest that went to Bee Cave, the hills were virtually cut off from civilization.
These isolated hills became home to cedar choppers. Winston Bode called them that "proud, independent, robust tribe of transplanted Southerners who came to flat-cut cedar and burn charcoal."6 They slow-burned cedar into charcoal, which they sold to general stores on 6th Street and other places. Like other mountain people, they worked hard, had little schooling, intermarried, bore several children, brewed corn whiskey, and danced barefoot to fiddle music. Except for coming to town with their charcoal and maybe drinking on Saturday night, the cedar choppers stayed to themselves. Austin folks used to say that you didn't go into the shills unless you knew someone, and it wasn't safe to travel on Bee Caves Road after dark.
One man who dared to venture into the hills was Emmett Shelton, Sr. An attorney, newly graduated from law school in 1928, he walked to.the hilltop where the County Line Restaurant now stands. He bought the hilltop for $500. In subsequent years he bought more land, sometimes for as low as $4.50 or $10 an acre. When he wasn't running his trial practice with brother Polk or dickering in politics (he ran for the Austin City Council in the 1930s), he was in the County Clerk's office, tracking down titles to land.
"Most of the people who owned land in the hills didn't live here," Shelton said. "Usually they had inherited it from someone. Most didn't know where the property lines were or how much was there." As he wandered through the brush, checking property lines, he made friends with cedar choppers and later defended many of them in their scrapes with the law. During the 1920s and 1930s, the hills were a haven for bootlegging. Cedar choppers set up stills on the creeks and guarded them with firearms. More than one federal agent was killed trying to come up on a still by surprise. According to Emmett Shelton, Sr., "There was more commercial activity in West Lake Hills then than there is now."
A favorite spot for Austin folks who wanted to drink and gamble was the Cedar Crest Night Club, site of the present County Line Restaurant. When it opened, someone asked owner Mervin Ash, "How are you going to keep these hillbillies from coming in and taking you over?" Without batting an eye, he replied, "We'll just put napkins and tablecloths on the tables." As the country worked its way out of the Depression, the hills began to enjoy economic growth. In 1937 B.B. "Pap" Beard started selling hamburgers and tamales in a log-cabin store on Bee Caves Road.8 His was the first business establishment in the hills. Later he added a gasoline station. Also in 1937 a new two-room schoolhouse was built to educate the growing numbers of children whose families had moved to the area.
...
So you had this informal unincorporated rural community called Eanes on the other side of the rivelake with their own rural ways and culture separate from Austin's. Then all these individual homesteader families dotting the landscape all over the western part of the county, in places like today's Oak Hill (was called Oatmanville), and Upper and Lower Bull Creek, and Jollyville. These were in turn part of a larger trend of settlement across the entire Hill Country. The failed farmers turned cedar choppers had settled clear up the western side of Williamson County and parts north, and also down into Blanco, and the western side of Hays, and Guadalupe counties. These places were far removed from the city at the time, being sometimes more than a few hours by horse or oxcart to get there, yet they lived in a symbiotic relationship with Austin supplying the growing city with cedar related products like fence posts, railroad ties, firewood and charcoal. We will get back to Mr. Emmett Shelton Sr. in a few minutes, who was the Father of Westlake Hills and whose name now adorns the 'low water crossing' bridge under the dam today, but first I want to tell you about the Dog Wars.
There are many books written about the cedar choppers but probably one of the best is The Cedar Choppers: Life on The Edge of Nothing by Ken Roberts. (h/t/ Noogisms) Written just a few years ago, Mr. Roberts tells the complete tale of the cedar choppers with anecdotes and interviews from the descendants of the people who were there, following the families from Europe to The Hill Country, and has researched the genealogy of the intermarried clans formed by these early hill folk right up to the modern day. I can't recommend this book enough , and any longtime resident ought to get around to reading it eventually. I turn to this excellent volume for help in telling a bit about the events of 1902-1923 known as The Travis County Dog Wars. This concerns a particular few clans of cedar choppers in the lower Bull Creek area. Quoting from page 70:
There was a time when the banker and doctors and politicians used the hills as their playground. Before a law was passed in 1923 outlawing the practice, they would bring packs of trained dogs to Bull Creek to run down deer, threatening the best source of meat for the residents. Once again, outsiders from the city were invading the hills with guns, and the hill people didn't like it.
They started waiting for the hunters to come. One unidentified BUll Creek resident said, "Whenever we'd see a whole bunch of dog men coming up from town, I'd saddle up my old mare and ride over to my partner's house. Then he'd do the same with the next neighbor, and so on 'til there was a pair of eyes lookin' out at the dog men from pert' near every bush." and they shot the dogs, starting what was called "The Travis County Dog Wars".
The hunters went ballistic: one physician had prize hounds shipped from Kentucky "ambushed by damned hillbillies who pay no taxes." A merchant said., "Those aren't human beings gunning our dogs down. Hell got overpopulated so the devil moved the worst lot over to Bull Creek and gave them guns to play with.
A reward of $250 was posted, but nobody responded. Finally enough evidence was gathered to indict Paul Waechter of the Bull Creek clan. His brother Lewis was married to a daughter of Lee Boatright, one of the patriarchs of the clan, so Paul was well connected. The article said the "young mountaineer, despite loss of one arm, had the reputation of a rifleman who could knock a gnat's eyebrows off at a hundred paces." A hundred witnesses were called to the stand during the trial, but nobody would testify against him. Pail's younger brother was asked, "'Son, did you ever see a dead dog in the hills?' 'Yes, sir, Judge, I saw one.' the youth replied. 'Well, son, what do you think killed that dog?' 'Judge, I believe that poor hound must have got hooked to death by a buck.'" To mollify the powerful men who demanded retribution, Paul Waechter was fined, but the fine was dismissed "for fear it would around the mountaineers' ire, and that the hillbillies would stop shooting dogs and start shooting hunters."
...
The hills west of Austin became no-man's land. Frank Wilson, who grew up in Hyde Park and knew some of the families from Bull Creek, said: Austin People didn't go out there. No, you stayed out of there. You go to Dry Creek then you'd better slow down, and when you got to Bull Creek you'd better stop" (laughter).
...
And so there you have the basic story of the Travis County Dog Wars. It's important to note that in general, the people of the community were running afoul with the authorities in the county courthouse over the river in Austin. There were not just the dog wars but the aforementioned interclan feuds and sometimes even good old fashioned domestic violence and abuse which sent many a "mountain man" to jail. This only worsened as the 1910s became the 1920s and Prohibition took hold. A good number of cedar choppers became full time moonshiners for the duration. For help in defending themselves and their clan families, the patriarchs contracted with one trusted lawyer to almost always represent them in court. That lawyer was the previously mentioned Emmett Shelton Sr. The rub was that he got paid in land, and he wasn't cheap either. He improved upon the land he owned and laid out roads following old cedar chopper trails.
Quoting again from Cedar Choppers: Life on The Edge of Nothing, page 188 tells a story of the kind of protection Mr. Shelton provided:
Luther Pierce tells the story of his brother Ed, and how Emmett protected him in a confrontation with the law.
What caused it was somebody had cut cedar posts in the wrong place, on Emmett's side. And Ed followed their muddy tracks out of there. And Emmett had a double-barrel shot-gun. Well, he took it with him, him and Ed went over there. Have you heard of John Lloyd? John Lloyd was real rich. He had built all kind of mansions over there in West Lake Hills. John Lloyd's son-in law was there and he was talking real, real smart. And the sheriff was there too. And John Lloyd's son-in-law walked up to Ed and shaking his finger at him, right in his face, said, "What are you doing over here anyway? You're the son-of-a-bitch that probably cut these posts." So Ed him him and knocked him down on the ground. And that sheriff told John Lloyd's son-in-kaw, he said, "You can file on him for that."
He said "Well. then. that's just what l'll do." So the sheriff was handcuffing Ed. Ed said Emmett scared him more than the sheriff--he got one handcuff on him before Emmett knocked 'em. "You leave that man alone. You get them handcuffs off of him. I am his attorney." And then he turned to that man and said, "You file on him and I'll charge you five thousand dollars a tree for every cedar that you cut on my places and we'll go through there and count the stumps." So he unlocked the handcuffs and let him go.
Emmett Shelton was a very effective lawyer. If the cedar choppers couldn't win a confrontation one-on-one, the whole clan would jump in. And if that didn't work, they called Emmett Shelton.
Going back to that high school report in the UNT archive linked to previously, picking up where I left off:
After World War II, Shelton urged his friend Austin Mayor Tom Miller to build a bridge across the Colorado by the newly rehabilitated dam that would carry Miller's name. When the proposal was brought before the city council, Shelton promised: "If you build this bridge, I won't run for city council again."
His strategy must have worked, because the council issued the bonds and built the low-water bridge in 1948. The bridge opened a second traffic artery into hills, connecting Lake Austin Boulevard with Red Bud Trail.
Shelton began selling land in earnest, usually asking $1,500 for 2.5 acres. On Saturdays, he rented equipment from the county and bulldozed roads, often following the horse trails and wagon paths used by the cedar choppers. In the back of his mind was a dream for a prime residential community. Electricity, telephones, and other utilities were slow in coming. At first land owners dug their own water wells or formed private water companies, and each house was built with its own septic tank. In 1949 Eanes School, which had started a nine-month school term only four years earlier, merged with Brewton Springs School, located 10 miles west on Bee Caves Road. By 1950 Eanes had 80 students in grades 1 through 6 (older students went to Austin High School). The same year Eanes bought its first school bus.''
In 1953 Shelton and his neighbors incorporated as the village of West Lake Hills. He drew a map by hand, and citizens voted 73-0 in favor of the proposition. In 1958, the village became a city with broader municipal powers, especially in matters of zoning to protect the environment. The city's founding documents states: "It is the powerful and heartfelt wish of the residents of West Lake HIlls that they may be permitted to live their lives with the least interference from any outside influences that might become annoying or burdensome...." The city fathers intended that residents remain as free as possible of government, providing their own water, sewage, garbage pickup, and other conveniences. The idea was, "If you need something, you do it yourself," said Janet Poage, who moved to the city in 1966 and chaired the Zoning and Planning Commission. For several years, residents voluntarily contributed money--in lieu of taxes--to pay minimal city expenses. And the early mayors ran city business from their homes, storing records in spare bedroom closets. Protection of the environment was essential. The first mayor, Dr. Dan Grieder (dean of a downtown business college), told a local reporter: "We want to keep it the way it's been," forbidding any activity that would "disfigure, destroy or mar the glorious beauty of our wooded hills and valleys." During the early years, citizens gathered several times a year for town meetings. They assembled at Eanes School over a covered dish supper of fried chicken and potato salad. Then they talked about who to nominate for city offices, sometimes cajoling a neighbor to serve. Though congenial for the most part, some meetings became spirited. According to Janet Poage, "People just stood up and said what they thought. It was hilarious. One fellow even threatened to shoot the mayor."
...
The 1940s brought the current dam and the new bridge to Red Bud Trail (along with the Lamar bridge), and connected the western part of the county back with the western part of the city, but as the Village of Westlake Hills continued to expand and modernize into the 1960s just as Austin did, the cedar chopper lifestyle started fading into the past. Natural gas heaters in homes became the norm by the mid 20th century and wood burning stoves became relics used only by very poor people. Charcoal could now be bought at a grocery store and didn't require special handling that cedar charcoal did.
Rollingwood, named for the rolling brakes of cedar trees, and Westlake Hills were founded around the same time and evolved together. They were joined in the 1970s by the Lost Creek subdivision. And then the office parks came.
The cedar chopper families started sending their kids to the new 2 room Eanes School in the 40s which was then after a few expansions joined in 1969 by Westlake Highschool and then Hill Country Middle School in 1975. And so that generation (the generation after the kids in the OP photo without a real school cafeteria) became accustomed to the suburban way of life and the cedar chopper way was lost. By the time the north and south sections of the new Loop 360 were connected by the Pennybacker Bridge in 1982, there was almost nothing representing the cedar choppers left in Western Travis County besides many old family graveyards and the occasional random car selling firewood on the side of the road. According to the book "Cedar Choppers: Life on The Edge of Nothing", you can still find some descendants in the backwoods but the way of life is lost. Their territory at its peak ranged the entire hill county from Hillsboro down to Uvalde, from Austin west to Fredricksburg, where ever the cedar grew.
In June of 1974, Emmett Shelton Sr. gave an oral history which was transcribed and is also available in the UNT archive through the Westbank Library. Straight from the horse's mouth he tells some anecdotes about buying and transferring, among other parcels, a certain 500 acres of land in the area (I think mentioned in the beginning), sometimes for the City of Austin, sometimes for himself. It's probably too long to copypaste here but it's a good read and gives an idea of what sort of man he was.
Lots of bonus pics today, and even a few links. Few are related to cedar choppers but lots are related generally to the area's history. The Westbank Library has copious amounts of photos from Eanes ISD via the UNT archive of old Eanes school campuses. I'll share some of the better ones but try not to hear the voices of those little girls in The Shining say "Come and play with us!" as you look at some of these.

2018.07.18 00:50 -Niddhogg- TL;DR - The Ballad of Grandshelt Abridged

For the first second FFBE anniversary, I got to work with Raegen's story. Hope y'all find it fun ! Well, it's actually the second second FFBE anniversary since JP already had the first second FFBE anniversary... But oh well, at least it's the second first second anniversary for FFBE ! Hurray !
Links to the previous Story Events Abridged : Christmas Story Abridged Way of the Warrior Abridged The White Sage Abridged Festival of Love Abridged The Pride of Gungan Abridged The Phantom Blueprint Abridged Where Destinies Intersect Abridged
I really like posting these TL;DR one-ish week after the release of the Story Event. At least I don't have to rush it too much, and more people get to enjoy it. So thanks to anyone who suggested this to me, you probably saved me from a FFBE burnout.
Anyway and as always, I hope you'll enjoy this month's TL;DR.

Chapter 1 – Public Practice

Zile, Raegen and Loren are about to give a public representation of their training. They enter the arena. Groupie 1 – Oh look ! It’s Loren ! Best waifu ! Groupie 2 – Excuse me, I think you meant Raegen. Groupie 3 – Is that a fucking pirate next to best waifus #1 and #2 ? After training. Zile – Hey RAEGEN, you were AWESOME in the arena ! It’d be AWESOME if you teamed up with ME ! Look, I have a BIG CANON, bitches love BIG CANONs ! Raegen – No. Also fuck you. Loren – Ouch.

Chapter 2 – Vanquish Orders

Since Raegen is not a woman, Loren has been elected best waifu and became the captain of the brigade. Loren – Our mission is to kill bears. Bears are carnivoran mammals of the family Ursidae. They are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans. Although only eight species of bears are Nobody gives a shit, and everyone is chit-chatting. Except Zile and a random knight. Loren – Also, here’s Sophia. She’s a nurse. Sophia – Hi, I’m a generic NPC named Sophia. Later on. Zile – Hey Loren, what’s UP ? You look a little DOWN ! Loren – I’m having an existential crisis. Raegen – Oh come on cut that crap. Loren – Thanks sir, I’m feeling better now. Raegen – And don’t call me sir, call me Raegen, we’re mates. This doesn’t apply to Zile though. Fuck Zile. During the fight, Raegen gets hurt while protecting Zile. Zile – OH MY GOD I’m SO SORRY sir RAEGEN ! Raegen – T’s just a flesh wound. Also fuck you. Sophia – Did someone just say « flesh wound ? » Sophia then proceeds to kidnap Raegen.

Chapter 3 – Rest for Knights

With the mission completed, the whole team gets wasted at the tavern while praising Loren and Raegen. Zile is praising himself. Ryumynui – Hi, I’m a bard and I think Sir Raegen looks like the founding father of Grandshelt. Raegen, to himself Fuck my immortality, fuck my appearence and fuck Zile. Raegen leaves the tavern out of frustration. At the same time, Sophia arrives. Sophia – Hey Raegen, how’s your wound ? Raegen – It’s all good, take a look. Sophia, to herself Wow, there’s not even a scar left. It’s so unnatural it’s suspicious. Oh well, guess I did a good job.

Chapter 4 – Private discussion

Later, Ryumynui is performing for the King of Grandshelt. After many praises for her song, the bard takes her leave and bumps into Raegen. Ryumynui – Oh, who are you again ? Raegen – Raegen. Ryumynui – Oh yeah right, sir Immortal Father Founder. Raegen – How in fuckland do you know about this ? Ryumynui – I read tales about it many years ago, and I WAS FUCKING RIGHT ! WOOHOO ! Time to write a SONG about it ! Bye sir Raegen ! Raegen – The fuck… ? Ryumynui leaves, and out of nowhere, Sophia arrives. Sophia – So you’re immortal ? Raegen – Alright, that’s it, screw everything. I’ll find a new hometown.

Chapter 5 – Grandshelt Tour

Later, at a bar. Sophia – Sir Raegen ! Raegen – If you’re here about my immortality, tell anyone you’d like. I’ll be leaving soon, don’t worry. Sophia – Screw this shit. I’m here to kidnap you and go on a date with you. Raegen – What the fuck is wrong with people lately… ? Sophia then forces Raegen to visit a whole lot of early-game levels. Sophia – … And this is the Earth Temple. There’s a rat infestation problem so a lot of people come here to kill them, but the rat population never seems to decrease… Raegen – Why are you taking me to these places again ? Do you like me or something ? Sophia – Nope, I hate you because you’re a knight and I don’t like knights. I also don’t like injuried people, which is why I’m a nurse and continuously work with injuried people. Raegen – You have serious issues.

Chapter 6 – Individual Actions

At Grandshelt Castle, Raegen overhears knights talking about a dangerously powerfull low-level boss monster. Thinking it could be related to some business of his, he went in the forest to invastigate.
There’s really nothing more to this chapter, so to keep you entertained, here’s a potato.

Chapter 7 – Noisy pursuers

After Raegen left the area, Ryumynui and her bodyguard, Lucille, come out of a bush. Ryumynui – I need more information about him if I want to write my song. Lucille – I’d like to point out that I’m there since chapter 3, but my contribution to the story was so insignificant that it’s the first time I’m being referred to in this summary. Both of them hide back in the bushes. Zile and Loren then come out of another bush. Zile – I want to be USEFUL to Sir RAEGEN for ONCE ! I have a BIG CANON ! Loren – Zile, we’re supposed to be sneaking. Stop yelling. And stop shooting stuff with your canon too. Both of them hide back in the bushes. Sophia then comes out from behind a tree trunk. Sophia – As soon as he lowers his guard, I’ll kidnap him and he’ll be all mine. John Cena then appears out of nowhere. Announcer – AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA ! Everyone ends up bumping into each other, and Chaos emerges.

Chapter 8 – Location Discovered

Everyone is quarelling, completely forgetting they’re all trying to sneak on Reagen. Startled by the all this ruckus, Raegen shows up. Raegen – What the fuck are you all doing here ? Loren – I’m your captain and Grandshelt Official best waifu, I have a right to be there. Sophia – I’m your nurse and self-assigned girlfriend, I have a right to be there. Zile – I’m ZILE, I have a RIGHT to be THERE ! Raegen – Okay alright, just shut up and follow me. Zile – I have a BIG CANON ! Raegen – Also, fuck you Zile. The party then finds and defeats the dangerously powerfull low-level boss monster. Later, at Grandshelt Doors. Raegen – Alright, I found my stuff, it was stuck inside the boss monster’s stomach. So… I’ll leave now. Sophia – As long as you’re still my boyfriend, it’s fine. Raegen – Weeeell… We’ll have to discuss that a bit more in depth later on. But for now, I’ve gotta leave. So… bye.
They never discussed that.
The Ballad of Grandshelt – The End.
Edit - I forgot the potato :( Edit 2 - Fixed the potato.

2018.06.12 01:49 BunyipPouch 'Incredibles 2' - Review Thread

Review embargo lifted on 'Incredibles 2' a few hours ago. Looking like another Pixar classic. Pretty great reviews across the board.
Rotten Tomatoes: 95% - Average Rating 8.1 - 43 Reviews
Metacritic: 83
Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus: Incredibles 2 reunites Pixar's family crimefighting team for a long-awaited follow-up that may not quite live up to the original, but comes close enough to earn its name.
Vulture - David Edelstein
It’s proof that someone (not anyone, mainly Bird) can make a Marvel-type movie that’s fleet and shapely, with action sequences rich in style rather than tumult. He’s a crackerjack filmmaker first and a marvelous animator a close second, and he has made the jazziest hybrid in years.
The Playlist - Drew Taylor
It would have been a relief if, 14 years later, Incredibles 2 had simply met expectations. Instead, it exceeds them.
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Pixar’s Dazzling Sequel Makes Superhero Movies Feel Human Again After a janky first act, Brad Bird finds the groove he's been looking for ever since "Ratatouille."
TheWrap - Robert Abele
Whatever the opposite of phoning in a sequel is, that’s Brad Bird’s progressive-minded, thunderously fun mix of super saves, throwback aesthetics and family comedy
USA Today - Brian Truitt
The animation is stellar and detailed in excellent action sequences, Michael Giacchino's score swings harder than ever, and the first film's family-friendly warmth is just as appealing now as it was then.
Uproxx -* Mike Ryan*
‘Incredibles 2′ Will Delight Fans Who Have Waited 14 Years For A Sequel
Variety - Owen Gleiberman possible spoiler warning
Brad Bird's sequel to his superhero-family Pixar classic doesn't build on the first film so much as dutifully replay it. It's fun, but far from incredible.
The Associated Press - Lindsey Bahr
Like “Ready Player One,” however, “Incredibles 2,” kind of loses the thread by the end. A villain is a villain no matter how salient their point, and Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and their offspring are our heroes and thus we must root for them even while thinking that Screenslaver might be on to something.
US Weekly - Mara Reinstein
Their adventures are timeless. And this one is worth the incredibly long wait.
Washington Post - Michael O'Sullivan
It’s been a long time coming for Incredibles 2, but the punchline is worth the setup
CBR - Meg Downey
Incredibles 2 is much more self aware, and artfully dodges a lot of the tired tropes associated with husband-wife role-swaps.
Screenrant - Molly Freeman
Incredibles 2 captures most of the fun of Pixar's The Incredibles, but feels somewhat outdated in the modern Hollywood landscape of superhero movies.
The Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy
Incredible enough.
Entertainment Weekly - Darren Franich
Incredibles 2 is a superheroic delight, and the weirdest Pixar movie ever.
IGN - David Griffin
Brad Bird’s strong script and direction elevate this animated adventure to new heights. Instead of trying to copy or parody the superhero films of the past 14 years, Incredibles 2 embraces what made its first outing so memorable: The Parr family and their willingness to work together in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Vox - Alissa Wilkinson
Incredibles 2 is a fun sequel with a lot to say. Maybe too much. The Parr family is back for an enjoyable romp that sometimes groans under the weight of its Big Ideas.
Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
“Incredibles 2” is content to punch the clock and stick to straight, bombastic action mode. In that mode, composer Giacchino’s music is the most successful element, running nimble, beautifully orchestrated variations on themes that feel familiar in the best ways while retaining their spark. The animation is bright and visually dynamic. The script, well … if the title were “Satisfactories 2,” it’d be about right.
Vanity Fair - Richard Lawson
Writer-director Brad Bird’s sequel is sleek and sure-footed—if a little square.
Description:
Everyone's favorite family of superheroes is back in "Incredibles 2"--but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life. It's a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again--which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible.

2018.05.28 05:55 GoityePowerhouse Martin's Alchyscope

Having studied the journals of Heirgen Delamere, which are contained in Moonsmoth Museum, I find myself more interested in obscure German urban legends. By these accounts, there was held to be, in certain maps of old, a city near Bavaria, some few miles North of the Black Forest. Writing in the year 1850, H.Delamere was born in Hamburg to an estranged mother, and secretive father. Moreover, his recorded annals, indicate his preoccupation with looking into his ancestral lineage around this time. Throughout this exhaustive process, of which I will only include the relevant pieces from his commonplace books; Mr Delamere displays a clear certainty that he himself, had visited this town, known as Aufklarung as a boy. He would later allege to have returned to the town as an adult, describing it as; “A luxurious town, brimming with nature, with architectural featuring that has all the beauty of a romantic postcard. An iconic wooden bell tower stands on a little hill among many oak trees, which leads into the main line of shops. Behind which, rows upon rows of reddish brown clinker houses are surrounded by an encircling dark forest. Most unusually, things one normally expects to find in a confederate town— one doesn’t, there is no church, nor town hall, and the strange dark quarter houses a lot of underground shelters, where men do things in absolute privacy and secrecy.”
The truth of this account is, of course, a sure improbability, given that a modern surveyance of the region has shown no evidence of such a place ever having existed.
Nonetheless, in Heirgen’s journal, he writes about the ignition of his interest in the place, after stumbling upon documents written by his grandfather, (an Egyptian Free Mason). These documents indicated that the Delamere family had, in fact, lived in Aufklarung for several generations. In Heirgen’s own words he describes; ‘..furiously visiting every library in Berlin and Paris, seeking travelogues and old records, all of which seemed to confer the existence of the bush encircled town, North of the Black Forest.’
The first few books of Heirgen’s journals are focussed heavily on his detailed research. I wouldn’t burden the reader by including too much of that fastidious research. That Heirgen’s father, an alcoholic, (who rarely spoke to the young Delamere anything regarding his estranged mother, nor of the Delamere family’s mysterious past)—-subsequently died in 1844, leaving a fair inheritance, this appears true. More than this, young Heirgen was then, for the first time, gifted among his father’s belongings, detailed accounts of the lives of his ancestors. Wether these records are a hoax or falsified somehow, this remains to be proven or disproven.
The genealogy of the Delamere clan, according to these old, yellow scrolls was inherently intriguing. Dating back to certain nobility, not least of all the notorious Count of Brackenball —a distant relation to the Duke of Stuttgart. Inheriting an estate somewhere North of the Black Forest in 1111, the House of Brackenball was carried on for several generations, being passed to many young knaves, one daughter who would marry the foreign born, Albert Delamere. From Heirgen’s own notes; “The Delamere’s kept a strong presence in the region. As Lothar became king of the Germans around 1123 and the disastrous expedition to Bohemia and the battle of Kulm occurred... many refugees flocked to the fertile plains of Bavaria, and became serfs, building up a thorough community.”
Heirgen provides copies of the detailed family trees in his commonplace book, primarily of interest, I suppose, is the slow shift of power of the Delamere family; “Raudeth Delamere married Sophia of Chrastberg in 1213, giving birth in succession to— Otto Delamere, Count Siegfried Delamere the first Bishop of Aufklarung, Heinrich Delamere, Canon of the Black Forest, Count Dietrich Delamere.”
These lineages go on for some many pages, but the most radical shift in the familial inheritance happened in 1540, as the Protestant reformation swept through the region. “A disgraced Bishop August Delamere, seems to have abandoned many of the family estates in shame. What follows are a poorer, and much more cunning series of generations who remain fundamentally embittered, and seeking vengeance for their lost wealth.” Heirgen notes that the Delamere generations utterly abandon their familial religion here, becoming somewhat fascinated with alchemy and the occult. Several of these reclusive characters spent many decades amassing great volumes of proclaimed magic texts, from Solomon’s Key, to the auspicious Lontars of the Vultures, et al.
Whilst the success or lack thereof remains unknown, the Delamere family spent great effort in attempts to recreate the philosophers stone, with various controversial chemical experiments. The only child, Valdon Delamere, was supposedly an extensive traveller, having made a pilgrimage to the holy land, to visit the apparent site of Solomon’s temple, and supposedly having some relationship with the order of the Knights of Malta. Valdon passed on his own tales, of having personally seen the ‘Holy Grail’ and the ‘Spear of destiny’ that pierced Christ’s side in a locked chamber somewhere. Even a ‘magic book of spells that could bring the dead back to life’. However, these exotic fancies were mostly brushed off by the following generations of Delamere, as the delusions of an old braggart.
At last we come to Martin Delamere, Heirgen’s grandfather, who was born in 1769, becoming an active Freemason at the age of 25. “Inspired by Renaissance Genius, Leonardo Davinci, my grandfather, Martin, could be seen as ahead of his time, in Germany. Whilst he kept all of his inventions a secret from the suspicious townsfolk, who saw him as, at best a mad scientist, and worse a sorcerer, and the adept of Satan. Among his various inventions, Martin passed on, in my father’s possession, a strange device which he himself had called an ‘Alchyscope’. Made of gold, and adorned with intricate designs, the device somewhat resembled a telescope in its overall structure, but with a larger, more machine like compartment or ‘engine’.”
Heirgen’s experience with the Alchyscope becomes more of the subject of his journals later, but for now it seems proper to include the last, more relevant documentation he includes regarding his ancestry, and the foundation of the town of Aufklarung.
“The infamous Marquis GreFuch Delamere, was incredibly reclusive, pushing the last of the family wealth into the construction of a hunting castle, Ichot Schott, in the Black Forest in 1666. The Marquis paid no allegiance to the growing powers of Prussia and Austria, nor France— and great rumour and speculation surrounded his activities.” “The town of Aufklarung meanwhile, became a bastion for certain men of letters, and seemed to be a rapidly developing hub of enlightenment ideas. The first major hospital was built in 1755, and many great period works of architecture line the curious streets. It is written that some of the nobles of Aufklarung saw danger in renaissance thinking, and outlawed these revolutionary ideas. French troops marched on Aufklarung in 1809, but were subsequently robbed of all power, after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, though the town retained a substantial French population.” (All this, at least, according to Heirgen Delamere’s own research)
Hiergen traces his family lineage back to Aufklarung; “With the fall of the Holy Roman Empire, and Napoleon in exile, Being that the majority of the Marquis children abandoned castle Ichot Schott, after the Marquis was infamously butchered, and burnt alive for the crimes of witchcraft. His orphaned children were taken in by a friendly peasant family by the name of Bauer, residents of the quaint Bavarian town. That the Bauer family, was known to show refuge for those persecuted by religious fundamentalism—- is perhaps no better displayed than through Reginald Bauer’s large cellar, which had sheltered many an exile from Adam Weishaupt’s banned Illuminati, among others fleeing the backlash to their enlightenment ideas.”
“It would seem that the young children, Sophie and Adam Delamere, picked up many of the travelling scientific and renaissance passion for art, which they in turn passed on to their own children. For, though the Delamere’s were known in Aufklarung as a secretive sect, harbouring illegal ideas... when I was to return there, in 1849, I was to find my Aunt Gladys, and Cousin Rafael to be quite personable; albeit marvellously eccentric thinkers, who carried on the pursuits and interests of their ancestors, though perhaps in more humble means.”
Of Heirgen’s epic return journey to his home town, and the subsequent story he tells of using the Alchyscope, I shall save— for after these final pieces of his research, which I have deemed relevant; “As a congregations of monarchs and statesmen, gathered in Vienna, including; Russian Tsar Alexander II, British Foreign Minister Viscount Castlereagh, Prussian Chancellor Fürst von Hardenberg and a French representative named Talleyrand (to discuss the restructuring of Europe), a burning sense of betrayal and desire for vengeance still festered in the hearts of the Delamere children.” “My once removed relatives Rafael and Gladys, would speak to me passionately of their opinion on their feelings about Prussia annexing the Rhineland, and Aufklarung becoming part of the German confederation. They spoke of Aufklarung as a very private town, which had no need to be burdened by the affairs of corrupt world powers. Though they seemed to strongly agree with the ideals of the revolutions happening in Germany.”
“Many of the townsfolk had apparently already held protests regarding the German Customs Union, and the unification of states. Of course I asked them if they didn’t benefit from trade from other regions in Germany—- a subject which they became very close lipped about.” “Something did seem to occur in the town around 1820. For where the local nobility had seemingly managed to suppress enlightenment ideas for decades. Gladys told me that September of 1819 had changed everything. Whilst Prussia introduced strict censorship on newspapers, magazines, books and started banning fraternities in university which encouraged illumination—the residents of Aufklarung had had enough. Whilst she never outright spoke of anything —in the vein of the French monarchist executions. The way she spoke about the 20’s were as if the noblemen and wealthy rulers of Aufklarung, had simply disappeared, or ceased to exist.” “When Wilhelm IV the Prussian King was supposed to become emperor, the people of Aufklarung vowed that they would never have a king, nor an emperor. Of course I had to ask them ‘Who runs the town now?’ But of this, I couldn’t get a satisfactory answer.” Having that awkward introduction out of the way, It now seems a suitable time to include the story of Heirgen’s return to his home town, exactly as he describes it in his journal; “It was the cold autumn months, late last year, when I decided to extend my research into a physical capacity. Certain experiments with Großvater Martin’s Alchyscope hadn’t lead to any solid conclusion. I managed to work out how to start the engine, at which point the device functions as a non magnifying telescope. You look through the glass front eyepiece, focus through an aperture, and certain controls on the mount bring the clarity of the image to fruition. However, I was quite certain the device had another function which I was yet to fully comprehend.” “Some small experimentation with the device outside, I had found certain buttons which triggered louder processes within the engine, however the only change in what is seen through the Alchyscope— I had yet to see —was a kind of swiftly moving shadow. When I returned to look without the lens, the shadow had all but dissipated.” “This renewed my interest in the instructions, and old maps, which had been in the same box as Martin’s machine. I found therein, a marked map, which had a route marked out on the East bank of the Rhine, somewhere above Stuttgart. Attached to this was a diagram of the Alchyscope, with certain outlined procedures.” “My only conclusion could be that Großvater’s Alchyscope was intended to be used in the region that it was created. So, packing a few weeks belonging into a range of suitcases, I resolved to take a trek out to the co-ordinates of latitude and longitude indicated in Herr Martin’s maps.” “The horse and cart ride through the mountains was scenic, but long, and I experienced some degree of travel sickness. My driver, did not speak German, and so the drive was rather solitary and melancholic. At least, he knew to stop every few hours, so I could smoke my pipe. The smoking herbs East of the Rhine were truly splendorous. There was an ominous grey sky that day, and the wind howled oddly. I was struck by the ear chilling hoots of an unknown genus of Tawny Owl. These sometimes had a musical quality, as though the creatures were communicating with one another.”
“When at last, we reached the coordinates mentioned by my grandfather, I was rather awestruck to find it quite off the beaten track. There was very little sign of human cultivation, and we were a long way from civilisation. Großvaters map lead directly to the edge of a dark woodland, almost too thick to traverse.” “It took some time, sitting, thinking and smoking my pipe. Listening to the curious melancholic calls of the flocks of Tawny Owl. At last, I resolved to test the Alchyscope, and see if it revealed anything, or if my growing fears —that I was wasting my time— were well founded. At first setting up the device, I considered the precise diagrams outlined by Martin. One of the pages was less of a map, and more of a design. It was a kind of circle, marked by a tangent, and an X crossed where the line met the circle. As I held up the page, I suddenly became convinced— that the circle represented the forest’s edge. Then, looking at the line of trees, I calculated the exact point in the line of trees that Großvater’s X represented.” “The notion ...that what I was attempting was crazy ...did not in the least persuade me from the act. I started the engine of the Alchyscope, adjusting the mount, and rotating the cylinder so that it faced directly toward the tangential line in the circle of trees. Looking through the eyehole revealed nothing unusual —- at first. However, experimenting with the device, by decoding the various instructions on the Alchyscope diagram, the machine suddenly let forth a remarkable hum. Then a shrill high decibel tone rang in my ears.” “I nervously resolved to look into the rattling Alchyscope. The incredibly sight I saw there—- instantly renewed my wonderment with the expedition. What a master illusionist. How had he done it? I scolded myself with confounding delight.” “What I saw now, through the lens, was for all intents, a mirror of the edge of the forest. Every pike needle on each tree was unique and perfect, just as in real life. But there was one major difference. A painted green door, made of wood, on the edge of the forest.” “I glanced away from the eyepiece. Looking at the forest in real life, there was clearly nothing but foliage. Yet again, returning to the lens of the intricate, golden device— that doorway remained.” “Mesmerised, I hastened over to the place where the door had appeared in the Alchyscope, expecting some trick to be unveiled, but as I touched the leaves I found that they were thick and solid. So the illusion in the Alchyscope was only that, a mirage, created by the device. No doubt a fascinating entertainment in Großvater’s day, but little more than this.” “Shortly thereafter, I packed the device away. The driver had excused himself to the call of nature, so I resolved to kill a few minutes, and see if I could catch sight of one of the rare species of owl. With this intent I had began scanning along the skirting boundary of trees, trying to follow the hooting noises. At some time I was drawn to look up at the sky, for a dark conglomerate of heavy cloud had temporarily eclipsed the sun. There ensued a chilling coldness, which caused me to shudder and hug my own arms, with rising goose pimples. I abandoned the quest to see the owl, and decided instead to go and sit in the carriage.” “Then to my momentous surprise, as I wandered back along the forest’s edge, the darkness seemed to have had some illusory effect. Or was it the light that had obscured it? Either way, that curious green doorway on the edge of the forest was now before me, clear as day.” “Without thinking my hands dashed to the gold knocker. Lifting and pushing, I found the green door opened fairly easily. Therein, what I looked upon was merely a long and winding trail, which ran deep into the dense forest.” Readers shouldn’t be surprised to find in Heirgen Delamere’s journal, that follows, the things which I have already asserted. That Heirgen found the quaint town of Aufklarung beyond, and that the curious little town seemed to harbour all manner of secrets. I should skip over the rather lengthy details of his first encounter with the people, and his eventually tracking down his own Aunt and Cousin in the local tavern. The conversations which have already been included. It would be easier to pick up the narrative here, and outline what happened next;
“Aunt Gladys and the young boy Rafael were quite delighted to have another Delamere visiting from out of town. They were very welcoming, and after explaining how I used Grandpa Martin’s Alchyscope to find the pathway in the woods, Aunty Gladys became instantly loquacious and attached to me. She bought me a very intricately decorated stein of locally brewed brown ale. The tavern was filled with twenty or so people, all drinking heavily. Aunt Gladys then began to fill me in on gossip from the local area, promising to take me on a tour after we finished our Ales. The Tavern was apparently once owned by the Kruger family, but was taken over by the Racung family fifteen years ago, who changed the name of the tavern to “Krishna’s Keep”. There was a rowdy group of blond haired men quite drunk beside us, who Aunt Gladys explained where the Bauer’s and their mates. Jonathon Bauer. Heinrich Bauer. Franz Becker. These, she explained had been close friends of her brother, Johann Delamere, before he fell off a horse, and died from a fractured spine. She pointed to a few of the other locals; Chester Pfeiffer, the town’s renowned and esteemed violinist. Dina Voorhind, the local Chemyst, and Ghunie Chesop, a marine biologist currently studying currents along the Rhine.” “After polishing another Stein or two, Aunt Gladys left the young boy with the Bauers, and took me on a tour of the town. As we left “Krishna’s Keep” and came around the Main Street of Aufklarung, we passed a cold looking pair of women, wearing dark clothing, who Gladys scowled at, later telling me that the Schwarz sisters were new to the town, and she didn’t completely trust them. She pointed out the old bell tower, and the curious backstreets where men toiled under electric light, in privacy beneath their houses. After a long show around, to which I was extremely grateful, Aunt Gladys told me that she had better go and pick the young boy Rafael up and drop him home before it was dark, but that I should return again to visit soon.” “This I resolved to do, and left Aufklarung with a new lease on life. Feeling quite jubilant about the whole affair, and being reacquainted with my estranged family. The sky had grown extremely dark now, though it wasn’t yet dusk. Nonetheless I found the old trail in the forest just as easily as I had done previously. The green door opened as easily as it once had, and I was happy to see that the carriage and horses were still there, with the case containing grandads Alchyscope still sitting on the leafy, autumn dirt.” “Strange though, was the disconcerting fact that my driver was nowhere to be seen. I called out several times for him, but to no avail. There was a strange track in the dirt, where the leaves had been swept away, as if someone had dragged their feet along. I followed it, hoping to find my driver, but the trail just led into the dark forest and became impossible to follow.” “Kneeling to examine the disturbed ground, I noticed with trepidation that there was also a trail of little droplets of red ink. I considered the possibility that the driver had been recording his own journal and spilled some ink, but something within the aspect caused me some concern.” “Dusk was now coming on, and I sat down to smoke my pipe and think over the situation. It would be quite rude of me to take off in the carriage without my driver, yet it was getting late, and the howls of wolves did not fill me with confidence to camp out in the dark forest. There was another hoot from one of the strange owls, which startled me and caused me to jump out of my skin. My next thought was to return to Aufklarung and see ask Aunt Gladys a bed for the night. It surely wouldn’t have been too imposing, given we had just rediscovered our familial bond. However, it troubled me to realise that I had only chanced on my cousin and Aunt in the Krishna’s Keep tavern, but didn’t actually know where they lived. It was quite late to ask around, and I wouldn’t have wanted to make a nuisance of myself.” “More time passed, and the howling of wolves grew ever more rampant. Somehow the most damning ideas came over me, and I found myself peering through Martin’s notes and family tree, particularly with regards to my strange ancestors estate, the Marquis GreFuch Delamere. I calculated that the location of his centuries old castle, Ichot Schott, would only take a few hours to travel to. Of course the idea was ridiculous, but the curious castle, questions of wether it still existed, and if it remained inhabited began to plague me, and I decided I must investigate the matter. So, after a short carriage ride, I dismounted and carried the Alchyscope case with me. The bushland was incredibly dense and ragged as I headed towards the castle coordinates. Passing a carcass of a massacred wolf, drained of spinal fluid, hardly filled me confidence. A white orb passed through the alleys of pine. The rays of the gibbous moon sifting thinly through the boughs, most of the ground lay in shadow. The heavy mulch of leaves crackled and squelched beneath my feet. The fiery canopy of stars had a vague malevolence.” “I was almost drained of energy, fearing that I had lost my way, when I knew I had reached the coordinates of the old maps. But disappointment immediately struck me. The forest came into a kind of clearing, with a steep incline, covered in loose stones. About twenty metres ahead, upon a raised platform of grass there was the ruins of an old castle. At least, one presumed it was. There was barely a wall in assembly, the entire knoll was covered in crumbled stone masonry.” “I sighed, sitting on a nearby rock and once again smoking my pipe in contemplation. Perhaps it was only by virtue of this act of repetition that the abstract thought came over me. For some reason, even though it there was only limited moonlight to see, I again assembled the Alchyscope on the grass, facing towards the ruin of the old castle, Ichot Schott. First checking through the aperture, as was to expected, what I saw was the exact same thing as was there in real life. A crumbled pile of grey slabs of stone.” “Not perturbed by the strange cracking sounds of nature, and eerie wind, I carried out a similar procedure as I had last time. Firing up the engine, and altering the dials, I soon ramped up the power of the Alchyscope until it was rattling and whistling loudly.” “Preparing myself, I now bent over and peered through the strange gold device. What is saw, defied all cognitive claims to rationally, sending insane trickles through my warping mind. The illusions brought on by the Alchyscope were at their most intense within the Black Forest. Everything beyond the lens, differed slightly from what was accepted as the reality it overlaid. The spectrum of colours was noticeably different, for one, it seemed as though it wasn’t night time at all through the device. Darkness showed up as a multi-layered colour beyond the regular ultra violet spectrum. The particles of the air were also not remotely still, but the air swivelled as though everything was underwater, and strange semi translucent life forms seemed to swim rapidly through the sky. The rubble of bricks was no longer laid out, but there stood an immense castle, of burnt brick, covered in unnatural flame. Everything around the burning castle, flickered as though it was the centre of a black hole. Strange shapes slinked around the peripheries of my vision, making me glance up occasionally, only to confirm that the reality I had looked upon still differed vastly from the illusion in the Alchyscope.” “Suddenly, something occurred to me, by the way the light was bouncing off a certain area behind the flaming castle. Looking up, I saw that even in the moonlight, the strange area beyond the knoll, an unnatural light seemed to flicker. Leaving the Alchyscope for a moment, I walked past the castle ruins, and approached the strange area. The closer I got to it, the more I became convinced something was not quite right. The forest on the other side of the knoll, seemed a little distant and wobbly, as though obscured by a glass wall.” “As my hands finally reached the surface, this indeed seemed to be the case. What I touched was solid, and cold. Extending in a kind of spherical curve, it seemed to mark the beginning of an immense glass dome. I pressed my face against the cold glass, marvelling at the opaque illusion within. The castle behind me was reflected in the glass, but more than this, the entire hill beyond seemed to be a mirror image of what was behind. But not exactly the same, for the bricks seemed half as demolished as the true castle. Standing about half its full height, the castle through the glass was only partially decayed. I looked behind to confirm I was not going mad, sure enough, I could count the number of bricks, differing significantly the castle beyond the glass dome.” “As I felt around the cold glass to see how long it extended, something else occurred to me. Behind the ruins off the castle, the glass wall met another corner. There appeared to be an adjacent dome of glass, extending in the opposite direction. The reflection in the second dome, also reflected the knoll on which the ruins of castle Ichot Schott had once stood.” “But this time, as I pressed my face against the glass dome, I found the space was occupied by more than mere apparitions. Groups of soldiers began to become apparent through the glass. Yet, these soldiers were not like any I had seen, certainly not Prussian, nor French, nor English, nor Russian. Their boots and coats seemed to be of a finely cut, shiny material. They wore flat, circular hats, and had distinctive decorative flags on their sleeves depicting a four pronged rune, in red, white and black. The soldiers were marching around the castle ruins, as if guarding or patrolling the area.” “Rapidly I moved back towards the first glass dome, desiring to compare the illusions. But within, I saw no such vision of futuristic soldiers. What I did see was a man in a brown robe and a pointed hood. I was instantly reminded of folklore surrounding the Ruprecht. A devil who dressed as such, but so far none of the other characteristics confirmed any other link than his cloak. He was not limping, or carrying a staff. Nor did he hold a bag of ashes. Nor did he have little bells on his clothes. Nor did he ride a white horse. Nor was he accompanied by faeries or men with blackened faces, or men dressed as women.” “I watched the curious robed man through the glass of the first dome. Marvelling as he began to walk, yet seemed intrinsically aware of my presence. He walked behind the side of the castle, approaching something. It took me some time to recognise what he was doing, and it was only when the robed man began to walk forward carrying the gold object that I realised with terror and astonishment that he was carrying the Alchyscope.” “With utter fright I turned around, expecting to see the robed man behind me. But instead, my fear was only further accelerated when I saw no man. But no Alchyscope either! The thing had vanished from where it had sat on the grassy patch back near the forest edges. I rushed back to the first dome, gazing through and seeing that Grandad’s Alchyscope sat mockingly at the front of the knoll, just before the glass out of reach.” “The robed man was walking back around out of view behind the castle now. Impatient, and thinking of the curious soldiers inside the second dome, I rushed to see what was happening in the second space. Even as I walked towards, I could see that nothing was still beyond the second dome. An apocalypse of colour and sound seemed to be happening. The flaming ruins of the castle seemed to be repairing before my eyes. But the rest of the landscape had become the image of Armageddon. The purple sky was filled with hideous black beasts flapping on bats wings. Meteors showered, and giant reptiles strolled through German valleys and over mountains. The metamorphosis was enough to send me completely insane, so much so that I could no longer look upon it. Turning from the glass domes, I decided to get out of the Black Forest as fast as possible, and get the hell back to civilisation.” “Imagine my abysmal terror, as I descended down the grassy knoll, and came to the point where I had entered the forest, only to find my head bashed against a cold surface. Feeling about, I found that the place that I had come into the castle knoll, was no longer an open space. A similar domed surface of glass had covered it. But where the other curved domes had been convex, this concave surface indicated that I had myself somehow been encased within a third glass dome, meeting the boundaries of the other two adjacent domes. Hugging the glass surface I turned to look back at the castle. I was relieved to see that at least the ruins on the knoll in front of me, remained the same as when I had first come across it. Terror overtook me, and I had to think fast.” “I walked slowly towards the castle. Considering the image of the standing black castle I had seen through the glass dome. I worked out where the rough entrance would be amidst the rubble. Walking through the two pillars of stone that would’ve once marked the doorway. As I did so, my eyes still caught frightful imagery through the apocalyptic second dome. There seemed to be some monstrous, dead alien laid out across the hillside, it’s long tubular appendages, conical headband, carrot like segments, and feelers gave it a frightfully unearthly appearance. I didn’t half believe I saw other horrid reptilian looking figures skulking around, as if trying to find some passage inside the dome I was within. I stepped further inside the ruined castle, noticing a higher portion of stone, undamaged towards the back. There was a bronze seal marked on the stone wall. The picture on the seal had the appearance of an engraved owl. Turning back towards the grass, my eyes saw a sight which filled me with a slither of hope. Somehow, defying all logic, the Alchyscope was back on the slopes of the grassy knoll where I had originally set it down. If I could only get the Alchyscope back, I thought, I might be able to find a way out of this trap. I raced forward, but as I came back out of the castle entrance, an unnerving truth awaited me. It was still night time, but the air was no longer merely lit by moonlight. A surreal, otherworldly colour stuttered and swam about the air. There was a luminance of uncanny stature. As I approached and picked up the gold device, I made the terrible mistake of looking beyond the glass dome. What I saw there utterly disabled my senses. I no longer looked out upon the Black Forest of Germany. Instead there yawned a vast abyss of bulbous globes, as though I was inside the mind of a giant fly, looking into infinite different dimensions. Within each bulb, fractured realities, and insect-like things which defied description looked in upon me, as though they were voyeurs to our reality. The vision was so blinding, I couldn’t stare for more than a few seconds. Stumbling back into the castle, which I fretfully perceived was slightly less dismantled than it had been. I came into a more constructed black hall, darker and enclosed with stone. Then I glanced down an adjacent stone corridor. Amazed to see the depthless corridor went on for some measure, I was bewildered to find myself entering a stone labyrinth of a kind. Clinging to the edges of the walls, my hand brushing stone. My heart began to race in my chest, palpitating wildly. Stumbling in the dark, I was horrified when a cold clammy hand, with sharp claws grabbed my arm. I couldn’t see a thing, but thrust my arm up, knocking the inhuman thing backwards, it grunted with unnatural fervour. Not waiting I continued to rush through the stone labyrinth. At last, my eyes caught salvation in a moonlit plateau, the light at the end of the tunnel. Rushing back out of the castle gates, I was relieved to find myself back on the original knoll, within the Black Forest. Pure relief lifted within my heart to find no glass barrier. I wasted no time to haul my Alchyscope back through the dark forest, running through the bushes with passion. Never looking back.”
As a psychologist at Bourkeley Institution, I have seen my share of complicate delusional frameworks, and it is quite possible that Mr Delamere was suffering from a strong case of schizophrenia, long before that condition was properly understood. This would at least explain his obsessive quest to follow up on what most would discount as pure folly. Heirgen Iived a relatively peaceful life, after these incidents. Living for another eleven years, before suffering a heart attack. He does relate other attempts to return to the town of Aufklarung over the ensuing few years, however he claims that he never again successfully found the hidden green doorway in the woods by using the Alchyscope, which he seemed to believe was damaged during his flight from the castle. Of the incident he described in the Black Forest, Mr Delamere gives little insight, except to speculate on what he believes he had seen. In his latter years, Heirgen becomes particularly fixated in his journals on the hand which he thinks touched him in the darkness of castle Ichot Schott. That the thing was not human, he asserts with certainty. On some days, he seems to convince himself that what he had seen, was some mutated apparition of his great lost ancestor, the Marquis of Ichot Schott. But even Delamere confesses that the notion is too absurd to entertain. He eventually abandons all faith in his experiences, doubting his own senses. Suggesting that he must’ve been the victim of extreme hallucinations caused by an overload of stress. This would certainly confer my theory that Heirgen was himself sadly suffering from mental illnesses, long before society understood how to treat such maladies. In any case the story remains a fairly interesting one, and the folklore certainly has a unique flavour. I don’t know what compels me to compile this case file. But I suppose one cannot deny their own interests. The diaries and maps mentioned in the journals, would certainly be an interesting aspect of study. I would have loved to have seen them, but according to police documents alongside autopsy reports, Heirgen set all of his paperwork and the strange Alchyscope on fire before his fatal heart attack. I suppose there shall never be any way to conclusively invalidate or confer authenticity of his bizarre accounts. But this would be a fine point to put the lid on my own account.

2017.11.14 11:56 autotldr ‘One Tree Hill’ Cast, Crew Accuse Showrunner Mark Schwahn of Sexual Harassment

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 74%. (I'm a bot)
The cast members and crew of the drama series "One Tree Hill" have written a letter accusing former showrunner Mark Schwann of sexual harassment and offering support for their former colleague, Audrey Wauchope.
The cast members and crew, including stars Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, and Bethany Joy Lenz, wrote Monday that they "Have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another" following statements made by Wauchope - a former writer on the series - on Twitter Saturday accusing Schwann of harassment.
In her Twitter comments, Wauchope described being subjected to frequent and unwanted touching by Schwahn, who she did not identify by name; seeing Schwahn show naked photos of an actress that he was having a sexual relationship with to staffers without the actress' knowledge; and Schwahn calling Wauchope's writing partner into his office to try to talk her out of getting married and into dating him.
All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another.
Many of us since have stayed silent publicly but had very open channels of communication in our friend group and in our industry, because we want Tree Hill to remain the place "Where everything's better and everything's safe" for our fans; some of whom have said that the show quite literally saved their lives.
For every male cast mate and crew member who has reached out to our group of women to offer their support these last few days.

2017.07.13 04:46 qwertycoder Fractal links and syncs connecting Big events and Big people.

Here is another post where I have some much information that folds in on itself so neatly its hard to find a place too start.
I suppose ill start with the synchronistic experience I had that showed me that Distance between events, time between events, specific date alignments are actually a thing.
This sync was sparked by sharing a synchronicity story with a coworker. My wife asked my for the last four digits of my social. Simultaneous to that i was talking on a FB group about synchronicity and date and distance of events.
Someone messaged me a video titled World war 3 in Georgia. I lived in GA usa but this was referencing Georgia in Europe. On 8-8-08 888 years after the founding of the knights Templar 888 miles from the temple mount(templar holy place) a war began is South ossetia . The Olympics in china started at the same time at 8:08 am 8-8-08 the next time the Olympics will be in china is 2-22-2022.
I then tell my coworkers this wild synchronicity and i say 8808 in reference to the date and realize With a rush that 8808 is the Last 4 of my social which my wife had just previously asked for!
Then a coworker said 8808. i asked why she said that and the order number she was working on ended in 8808.
http://imgur.com/C2Uzwmt
http://imgur.com/qPedbvu
This is the distance and time breakdown, and while not exactly 888 years the distance is to the point and on the date 8-8-08 no less.
I have found some interesting links between, sandy hook, Aurora shootings and 911, which are similar to the above formula.
First im going to talk about the Washington square park arch.
https://www.henrymakow.com/upload_images/image003.jpg
The main point of interest is that this arch framed the towers within its arch.
The other main point of interest is it was built 77years 11 months before the opening of the Twin towers.
So the area in which the towers were built was bought up and 100’s of businesses ran out so that David Rockefeller could build his financial heart of the USA.
Weather or not the framing in the arch was intentional the findings are odd.
https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=5&d1=4&y1=1895&m2=4&d2=4&y2=1973
from the founding of the arch to Freedom tower opening 119 years 6 months
https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=5&d1=4&y1=1895&m2=11&d2=3&y2=2014&ti=on
Another clue is the phrase “Exitus Acta Probat” which translates to “The end justifies the means” What end, what means, what is framed within the arch.
The distance between the towers and the arch is another clue.
http://imgur.com/E4lAlOq
2777.77 yards.
I found it amusing when I went to look up the arch today and google said I last visited that page on
2-22-17.
My first thought was I wonder what the date counts between George Washington’s birth and this arch. George Washington was born 2-22-1732. And then the next immediate thought is the connection between 3 George W’s.
George Washington first president. George Sr. New world order speech on 9-11-1991
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txukr5zgHnw
10 years later Bush Jr is in office and 9-11 happens.
So in my flying around google earth I found a place id never seen before called sandy hook bay in newyork. In sandy hook bay I saw I huge trident shooting out into the water. In pops the thought, I wonder what the distance is between this trident and Sandy hook elementary.
http://imgur.com/sHNGt2E
http://imgur.com/xIVnfIz
http://imgur.com/aiuY3nd
77.77 miles pointing smack dab at sandy hook elementary. There was a lot about tridents going on around the time I saw it so it really jumped out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2RAROIox0E&t=62s
So what is this trident? This is a Naval military base, commissioned on 12-14-1943. Which is 144 years exactly after George Washington’s death. And 69 years exactly before the sandy hook shooting.
Let me repeat, This naval base in sandy hook bay that points 77.77 miles away too sandy hook elementary was made 69 years before the event that it is pointing too!
The timespan from The building of the trident naval base and the sandy hook shooting. Is 25,025 days or 7,7
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Weapons_Station_Earle
So im doing this research today in the middle of a palindrome week. 7-10-2017 7102017 was start of palindrome week. A palindrome is a series that reads the same backward and forward. Like the word RACECAR. In numerology such numbers have power via their symmetry.
http://imgur.com/p1Of6qV
So today is 7-12-17 or 71217 a palindrome in abbreviated date form.
Just look at those seconds in the right hand side. 2,177,712,000 seconds or 2177721 found on 7-12-17 the same damn numbers. This number is the number of seconds between the commissioning of the Earle naval base and the sandy hook shooting.
I guess here is where I mention that I was I was swept into a bible code research and the incredible structure of the original Hebrew.
There are two distinct path i researched
One was the geometric gematria formations that come out of the bible. http://www.biblegematria.com/pearls-of-wisdom.html The core is the Word wisdom Which is 37 regular and 73 the other way and 37x73= 2701 the total value of the first verse gen 1:1 The numbers 37 and 73 are truly incredible.
When David Rockefeller died i was in the midst of researching the bible path and used a date calculator to find how many days he was alive. and it was 37173 days
The 2nd bible path was the Meru foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnwmiT4VsdM
which showed that the first verse when aligned alphabetically in 3d space it formed a torus. and within that torus was a shape and that shape when view from particular angles shows the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
To roll it all up in my mandela effect research lining up with Sophia the earth mother. Sophia means wisdom in Latin which is the word that is 37 and 73. directly linking my gnostic studies and mandela effect studies into the bible studies.
David Rockefeller died at 101 at 37173 days alive. 3+7=10 111. Keep in mind that this is the man responsible for building the World trade centers. Since Im sitting here with birthdays and such In front of me its funny to see that David Rockefeller and George bush SR have the same birthday. With Rockefeller hitting his 19th birthday on George Sr. birth.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy
Shockingly on 10-22-2012 hurricane sandy formed and dissipated on 11-2-2012. 10222012 and 1122012.
Odd that this hurricane hit Sandy hook bay and destroyed the MAST school
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_Academy_of_Science_and_Technology
This happened after Sandy took a LEFT HOOK. Sandy the hurricane Took a hook and hit sandy hook bay that has a navel base that points at sandy hook elm! From the wiki.
“Early on October 29, Sandy curved west-northwest (the "left turn" or "left hook") and then moved ashore near Brigantine, New Jersey, just to the northeast of Atlantic City”
Now that we have information about the Washington Square park arch, WTC, Sandy hook lets bring in
James Holmes and the Aurora dark knight shooting.
We can start with the peculiar fact jameses birthday is 12-13-1987
Naval base Earle commissioned 12-13-1943
Sandy hook shooting and death of Adam Lanza 12-14-2012
George Washington’s date of passing 12-14-1799
http://rense.com/general95/sandyaurora.html
The dark knight rises. Released on 7-16(7)-2012. In the movie are both references to Aurora and Sandy hook. The latter being the most blatant example as the name on the map was not cannon to the comics or even the original dark knight movie. The man responsible for the props is actually a resident of Newtown and was in Sandy hook when his car was hit in a head on collision and he was killed.
Before the release of the dark knight rises on 4-7-12. From the date of his death to the NYC release of DKR is 100 days exactly which is also 144,000 minutes
http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/news/article/Newtown-man-dies-in-Stamford-accident-3465225.php

http://revelationnow.net/2013/03/24/scott-getzinger-tragedy-hand-of-god/
So the day after Scotts wife speaks out against the education system in newtown he is killed in the car accident. These connections are just too Cohesive.
Im still working on all this and trying to simplify and present it in a way that can be Followed.
TLDR: Sandy hook, Dark knight shooting, 9-11 all intricately connected in many ways. These connections are reinforced with a cursory analysis of the birth-dates and distances between events. The Washington square park arch frames the twin towers and now frames the freedom tower. The end justifies the means is written on this. The 3 George W’s are involved the Original George was honored through this monument that framed The WTC in its view. Bush Sr had his famous New world order speech 9-11-1991, 10 years too the day before his son Is president during the destruction of the towers framed by the Arch of Original George W.

2-22-17.
My first thought was I wonder what the date counts between George Washington’s birth and this arch. George Washington was born 2-22-1732. And then the next immediate thought is the connection between 3 George W’s.
George Washington first president. George Sr. New world order speech on 9-11-1991
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txukr5zgHnw
10 years later Bush Jr is in office and 9-11 happens.
So in my flying around google earth I found a place id never seen before called sandy hook bay in newyork. In sandy hook bay I saw I huge trident shooting out into the water. In pops the thought, I wonder what the distance is between this trident and Sandy hook elementary.

77.77 miles pointing smack dab at sandy hook elementary. There was a lot about tridents going on around the time I saw it so it really jumped out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2RAROIox0E&t=62s
So what is this trident? This is a Naval military base, commissioned on 12-14-1943. Which is 144 years exactly after George Washington’s death. And 69 years exactly before the sandy hook shooting.
Let me repeat, This naval base in sandy hook bay that points 77.77 miles away too sandy hook elementary was made 69 years before the event that it is pointing too!
The timespan from The building of the trident naval base and the sandy hook shooting. Is 25,025 days or 7,7
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Weapons_Station_Earle
So im doing this research today in the middle of a palindrome week. 7-10-2017 7102017 was start of palindrome week. A palindrome is a series that reads the same backward and forward. Like the word RACECAR. In numerology such numbers have power via their symmetry.
http://imgur.com/p1Of6qV
So today is 7-12-17 or 71217 a palindrome in abbreviated date form.
Just look at those seconds in the right hand side. 2,177,712,000 seconds or 2177721 found on 7-12-17 the same damn numbers. This number is the number of seconds between the commissioning of the Earle naval base and the sandy hook shooting.
I guess here is where I mention that I was I was swept into a bible code research and the incredible structure of the original Hebrew.
There are two distinct path i researched
One was the geometric gematria formations that come out of the bible. http://www.biblegematria.com/pearls-of-wisdom.html The core is the Word wisdom Which is 37 regular and 73 the other way and 37x73= 2701 the total value of the first verse gen 1:1 The numbers 37 and 73 are truly incredible.
When David Rockefeller died i was in the midst of researching the bible path and used a date calculator to find how many days he was alive. and it was 37173 days
The 2nd bible path was the Meru foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnwmiT4VsdM
which showed that the first verse when aligned alphabetically in 3d space it formed a torus. and within that torus was a shape and that shape when view from particular angles shows the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
To roll it all up in my mandela effect research lining up with Sophia the earth mother. Sophia means wisdom in Latin which is the word that is 37 and 73. directly linking my gnostic studies and mandela effect studies into the bible studies.
David Rockefeller died at 101 at 37173 days alive. 3+7=10 111. Keep in mind that this is the man responsible for building the World trade centers. Since Im sitting here with birthdays and such In front of me its funny to see that David Rockefeller and George bush SR have the same birthday. With Rockefeller hitting his 19th birthday on George Sr. birth.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy
Shockingly on 10-22-2012 hurricane sandy formed and dissipated on 11-2-2012. 10222012 and 1122012.
Odd that this hurricane hit Sandy hook bay and destroyed the MAST school
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_Academy_of_Science_and_Technology
This happened after Sandy took a LEFT HOOK. Sandy the hurricane Took a hook and hit sandy hook bay that has a navel base that points at sandy hook elm! From the wiki.
“Early on October 29, Sandy curved west-northwest (the "left turn" or "left hook") and then moved ashore near Brigantine, New Jersey, just to the northeast of Atlantic City”
Now that we have information about the Washington Square park arch, WTC, Sandy hook lets bring in
James Holmes and the Aurora dark knight shooting.
We can start with the peculiar fact jameses birthday is 12-13-1987
Naval base Earle commissioned 12-13-1943
Sandy hook shooting and death of Adam Lanza 12-14-2012
George Washington’s date of passing 12-14-1799
http://rense.com/general95/sandyaurora.html
The dark knight rises. Released on 7-16(7)-2012. In the movie are both references to Aurora and Sandy hook. The latter being the most blatant example as the name on the map was not cannon to the comics or even the original dark knight movie. The man responsible for the props is actually a resident of Newtown and was in Sandy hook when his car was hit in a head on collision and he was killed.
Before the release of the dark knight rises on 4-7-12. From the date of his death to the NYC release of DKR is 100 days exactly which is also 144,000 minutes

So the day after Scotts wife speaks out against the education system in newtown he is killed in the car accident. These connections are just too Cohesive.
Im still working on all this and trying to simplify and present it in a way that can be Followed.
TLDR: Sandy hook, Dark knight shooting, 9-11 all intricately connected in many ways. These connections are reinforced with a cursory analysis of the birth-dates and distances between events. The Washington square park arch frames the twin towers and now frames the freedom tower. The end justifies the means is written on this. The 3 George W’s are involved the Original George was honored through this monument that framed The WTC in its view. Bush Sr had his famous New world order speech 9-11-1991, 10 years too the day before his son Is president during the destruction of the towers framed by the Arch of Original George W.

2017.07.13 03:49 qwertycoder Connective tissue between events in time and space.

Here is another post where I have some much information that folds in on itself so neatly its hard to find a place too start.
I suppose ill start with the synchronistic experience I had that showed me that Distance between events, time between events, specific date alignments are actually a thing.
This sync was sparked by sharing a synchronicity story with a coworker. My wife asked my for the last four digits of my social. Simultaneous to that i was talking on a FB group about synchronicity and date and distance of events.
Someone messaged me a video titled World war 3 in Georgia. I lived in GA usa but this was referencing Georgia in Europe. On 8-8-08 888 years after the founding of the knights Templar 888 miles from the temple mount(templar holy place) a war began is South ossetia . The Olympics in china started at the same time at 8:08 am 8-8-08 the next time the Olympics will be in china is 2-22-2022.
I then tell my coworkers this wild synchronicity and i say 8808 in reference to the date and realize With a rush that 8808 is the Last 4 of my social which my wife had just previously asked for!
Then a coworker said 8808. i asked why she said that and the order number she was working on ended in 8808.
http://imgur.com/C2Uzwmt
http://imgur.com/qPedbvu
This is the distance and time breakdown, and while not exactly 888 years the distance is to the point and on the date 8-8-08 no less.
I have found some interesting links between, sandy hook, Aurora shootings and 911, which are similar to the above formula.
First im going to talk about the Washington square park arch.
https://www.henrymakow.com/upload_images/image003.jpg
The main point of interest is that this arch framed the towers within its arch.
The other main point of interest is it was built 77years 11 months before the opening of the Twin towers.
So the area in which the towers were built was bought up and 100’s of businesses ran out so that David Rockefeller could build his financial heart of the USA.
Weather or not the framing in the arch was intentional the findings are odd.
https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=5&d1=4&y1=1895&m2=4&d2=4&y2=1973
from the founding of the arch to Freedom tower opening 119 years 6 months
https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=5&d1=4&y1=1895&m2=11&d2=3&y2=2014&ti=on
Another clue is the phrase “Exitus Acta Probat” which translates to “The end justifies the means” What end, what means, what is framed within the arch.
The distance between the towers and the arch is another clue.

10 years later Bush Jr is in office and 9-11 happens.
So in my flying around google earth I found a place id never seen before called sandy hook bay in newyork. In sandy hook bay I saw I huge trident shooting out into the water. In pops the thought, I wonder what the distance is between this trident and Sandy hook elementary.

77.77 miles pointing smack dab at sandy hook elementary. There was a lot about tridents going on around the time I saw it so it really jumped out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2RAROIox0E&t=62s
So what is this trident? This is a Naval military base, commissioned on 12-14-1943. Which is 144 years exactly after George Washington’s death. And 69 years exactly before the sandy hook shooting.
Let me repeat, This naval base in sandy hook bay that points 77.77 miles away too sandy hook elementary was made 69 years before the event that it is pointing too!
The timespan from The building of the trident naval base and the sandy hook shooting. Is 25,025 days or 7,7
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Weapons_Station_Earle
So im doing this research today in the middle of a palindrome week. 7-10-2017 7102017 was start of palindrome week. A palindrome is a series that reads the same backward and forward. Like the word RACECAR. In numerology such numbers have power via their symmetry.
http://imgur.com/p1Of6qV
So today is 7-12-17 or 71217 a palindrome in abbreviated date form.
Just look at those seconds in the right hand side. 2,177,712,000 seconds or 2177721 found on 7-12-17 the same damn numbers. This number is the number of seconds between the commissioning of the Earle naval base and the sandy hook shooting.
I guess here is where I mention that I was I was swept into a bible code research and the incredible structure of the original Hebrew.
There are two distinct path i researched
One was the geometric gematria formations that come out of the bible. http://www.biblegematria.com/pearls-of-wisdom.html The core is the Word wisdom Which is 37 regular and 73 the other way and 37x73= 2701 the total value of the first verse gen 1:1 The numbers 37 and 73 are truly incredible.
When David Rockefeller died i was in the midst of researching the bible path and used a date calculator to find how many days he was alive. and it was 37173 days
The 2nd bible path was the Meru foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnwmiT4VsdM
which showed that the first verse when aligned alphabetically in 3d space it formed a torus. and within that torus was a shape and that shape when view from particular angles shows the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
To roll it all up in my mandela effect research lining up with Sophia the earth mother. Sophia means wisdom in Latin which is the word that is 37 and 73. directly linking my gnostic studies and mandela effect studies into the bible studies.
David Rockefeller died at 101 at 37173 days alive. 3+7=10 111. Keep in mind that this is the man responsible for building the World trade centers. Since Im sitting here with birthdays and such In front of me its funny to see that David Rockefeller and George bush SR have the same birthday. With Rockefeller hitting his 19th birthday on George Sr. birth.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy
Shockingly on 10-22-2012 hurricane sandy formed and dissipated on 11-2-2012. 10222012 and 1122012.
Odd that this hurricane hit Sandy hook bay and destroyed the MAST school
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_Academy_of_Science_and_Technology
This happened after Sandy took a LEFT HOOK. Sandy the hurricane Took a hook and hit sandy hook bay that has a navel base that points at sandy hook elm! From the wiki.
“Early on October 29, Sandy curved west-northwest (the "left turn" or "left hook") and then moved ashore near Brigantine, New Jersey, just to the northeast of Atlantic City”
Now that we have information about the Washington Square park arch, WTC, Sandy hook lets bring in
James Holmes and the Aurora dark knight shooting.
We can start with the peculiar fact jameses birthday is 12-13-1987
Naval base Earle commissioned 12-13-1943
Sandy hook shooting and death of Adam Lanza 12-14-2012
George Washington’s date of passing 12-14-1799
http://rense.com/general95/sandyaurora.html
The dark knight rises. Released on 7-16(7)-2012. In the movie are both references to Aurora and Sandy hook. The latter being the most blatant example as the name on the map was not cannon to the comics or even the original dark knight movie. The man responsible for the props is actually a resident of Newtown and was in Sandy hook when his car was hit in a head on collision and he was killed.
Before the release of the dark knight rises on 4-7-12. From the date of his death to the NYC release of DKR is 100 days exactly which is also 144,000 minutes

http://revelationnow.net/2013/03/24/scott-getzinger-tragedy-hand-of-god/
So the day after Scotts wife speaks out against the education system in newtown he is killed in the car accident. These connections are just too Cohesive.
Im still working on all this and trying to simplify and present it in a way that can be Followed.
TLDR: Sandy hook, Dark knight shooting, 9-11 all intricately connected in many ways. These connections are reinforced with a cursory analysis of the birth-dates and distances between events. The Washington square park arch frames the twin towers and now frames the freedom tower. The end justifies the means is written on this. The 3 George W’s are involved the Original George was honored through this monument that framed The WTC in its view. Bush Sr had his famous New world order speech 9-11-1991, 10 years too the day before his son Is president during the destruction of the towers framed by the Arch of Original George W.

2017.07.13 03:13 qwertycoder Precise alignments in time and space, clues to the bigger picture or just a coincidence?

Here is another post where I have some much information that folds in on itself so neatly its hard to find a place too start.
I suppose ill start with the synchronistic experience I had that showed me that Distance between events, time between events, specific date alignments are actually a thing.
This sync was sparked by sharing a synchronicity story with a coworker. My wife asked my for the last four digits of my social. Simultaneous to that i was talking on a FB group about synchronicity and date and distance of events.
Someone messaged me a video titled World war 3 in Georgia. I lived in GA usa but this was referencing Georgia in Europe. On 8-8-08 888 years after the founding of the knights Templar 888 miles from the temple mount(templar holy place) a war began is South ossetia . The Olympics in china started at the same time at 8:08 am 8-8-08 the next time the Olympics will be in china is 2-22-2022.
I then tell my coworkers this wild synchronicity and i say 8808 in reference to the date and realize With a rush that 8808 is the Last 4 of my social which my wife had just previously asked for!
Then a coworker said 8808. i asked why she said that and the order number she was working on ended in 8808.
http://imgur.com/C2Uzwmt
http://imgur.com/qPedbvu
This is the distance and time breakdown, and while not exactly 888 years the distance is to the point and on the date 8-8-08 no less.
I have found some interesting links between, sandy hook, Aurora shootings and 911, which are similar to the above formula.
First im going to talk about the Washington square park arch.
https://www.henrymakow.com/upload_images/image003.jpg
The main point of interest is that this arch framed the towers within its arch.
The other main point of interest is it was built 77years 11 months before the opening of the Twin towers.
So the area in which the towers were built was bought up and 100’s of businesses ran out so that David Rockefeller could build his financial heart of the USA.
Weather or not the framing in the arch was intentional the findings are odd.
https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=5&d1=4&y1=1895&m2=4&d2=4&y2=1973
from the founding of the arch to Freedom tower opening 119 years 6 months
https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=5&d1=4&y1=1895&m2=11&d2=3&y2=2014&ti=on
Another clue is the phrase “Exitus Acta Probat” which translates to “The end justifies the means” What end, what means, what is framed within the arch.
The distance between the towers and the arch is another clue.
http://imgur.com/E4lAlOq
2777.77 yards.
I found it amusing when I went to look up the arch today and google said I last visited that page on
2-22-17.
My first thought was I wonder what the date counts between George Washington’s birth and this arch. George Washington was born 2-22-1732. And then the next immediate thought is the connection between 3 George W’s.

77.77 miles pointing smack dab at sandy hook elementary. There was a lot about tridents going on around the time I saw it so it really jumped out.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2RAROIox0E&t=62s
So what is this trident? This is a Naval military base, commissioned on 12-14-1943. Which is 144 years exactly after George Washington’s death. And 69 years exactly before the sandy hook shooting.
Let me repeat, This naval base in sandy hook bay that points 77.77 miles away too sandy hook elementary was made 69 years before the event that it is pointing too!
The timespan from The building of the trident naval base and the sandy hook shooting. Is 25,025 days or 7,7
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naval_Weapons_Station_Earle
So im doing this research today in the middle of a palindrome week. 7-10-2017 7102017 was start of palindrome week. A palindrome is a series that reads the same backward and forward. Like the word RACECAR. In numerology such numbers have power via their symmetry.
http://imgur.com/p1Of6qV
So today is 7-12-17 or 71217 a palindrome in abbreviated date form.
Just look at those seconds in the right hand side. 2,177,712,000 seconds or 2177721 found on 7-12-17 the same damn numbers. This number is the number of seconds between the commissioning of the Earle naval base and the sandy hook shooting.
I guess here is where I mention that I was I was swept into a bible code research and the incredible structure of the original Hebrew.
There are two distinct path i researched
One was the geometric gematria formations that come out of the bible. http://www.biblegematria.com/pearls-of-wisdom.html The core is the Word wisdom Which is 37 regular and 73 the other way and 37x73= 2701 the total value of the first verse gen 1:1 The numbers 37 and 73 are truly incredible.
When David Rockefeller died i was in the midst of researching the bible path and used a date calculator to find how many days he was alive. and it was 37173 days
The 2nd bible path was the Meru foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnwmiT4VsdM
which showed that the first verse when aligned alphabetically in 3d space it formed a torus. and within that torus was a shape and that shape when view from particular angles shows the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
To roll it all up in my mandela effect research lining up with Sophia the earth mother. Sophia means wisdom in Latin which is the word that is 37 and 73. directly linking my gnostic studies and mandela effect studies into the bible studies.
David Rockefeller died at 101 at 37173 days alive. 3+7=10 111. Keep in mind that this is the man responsible for building the World trade centers. Since Im sitting here with birthdays and such In front of me its funny to see that David Rockefeller and George bush SR have the same birthday. With Rockefeller hitting his 19th birthday on George Sr. birth.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Sandy
Shockingly on 10-22-2012 hurricane sandy formed and dissipated on 11-2-2012. 10222012 and 1122012.
Odd that this hurricane hit Sandy hook bay and destroyed the MAST school
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_Academy_of_Science_and_Technology
This happened after Sandy took a LEFT HOOK. Sandy the hurricane Took a hook and hit sandy hook bay that has a navel base that points at sandy hook elm! From the wiki.
“Early on October 29, Sandy curved west-northwest (the "left turn" or "left hook") and then moved ashore near Brigantine, New Jersey, just to the northeast of Atlantic City”
Now that we have information about the Washington Square park arch, WTC, Sandy hook lets bring in
James Holmes and the Aurora dark knight shooting.
We can start with the peculiar fact jameses birthday is 12-13-1987
Naval base Earle commissioned 12-13-1943
Sandy hook shooting and death of Adam Lanza 12-14-2012
George Washington’s date of passing 12-14-1799
http://rense.com/general95/sandyaurora.html
The dark knight rises. Released on 7-16(7)-2012. In the movie are both references to Aurora and Sandy hook. The latter being the most blatant example as the name on the map was not cannon to the comics or even the original dark knight movie. The man responsible for the props is actually a resident of Newtown and was in Sandy hook when his car was hit in a head on collision and he was killed.
Before the release of the dark knight rises on 4-7-12. From the date of his death to the NYC release of DKR is 100 days exactly which is also 144,000 minutes

So the day after Scotts wife speaks out against the education system in newtown he is killed in the car accident. These connections are just too Cohesive.
Im still working on all this and trying to simplify and present it in a way that can be Followed.
TLDR: Sandy hook, Dark knight shooting, 9-11 all intricately connected in many ways. These connections are reinforced with a cursory analysis of the birth-dates and distances between events. The Washington square park arch frames the twin towers and now frames the freedom tower. The end justifies the means is written on this. The 3 George W’s are involved the Original George was honored through this monument that framed The WTC in its view. Bush Sr had his famous New world order speech 9-11-1991, 10 years too the day before his son Is president during the destruction of the towers framed by the Arch of Original George W.

2017.04.24 16:43 willllo The Rise of Uber

This is a (rather large) excerpt from an article from CNBC this morning on the rise of uber and the background of its CEO Travis Kalanick. Thought some of you may be interested.
UberCab, as it was called at the time, started its service in San Francisco in May 2010. Mr. Camp and Mr. Kalanick picked that name to emphasize the convenience of calling a car on demand from an app. Mr. Kalanick wanted a break from full-time start-up life after running Red Swoosh, so he and Mr. Camp named Ryan Graves, who responded to a call for help on Twitter, as chief executive.
A few months later, Mr. Kalanick changed his mind and took over as UberCab’s chief. He quickly positioned the start-up as an alternative to the taxi industry. At the time, taxi companies had iron grips in many towns. City-by-city regulations required procedures like base stations for cabs, safety measures and other stipulations.
Mr. Kalanick ignored those rules.
“We’re in a political campaign,” he once said at a technology conference, and the candidate is Uber. The opponent is named Taxi, he said, adding a rude descriptive. “Nobody likes him, he’s not a nice character, but he’s so woven into the political machinery and fabric that a lot of people owe him favors.”
Mr. Kalanick carried that same level of intensity into Uber’s headquarters, pacing briskly while working by doing laps around the office. His pacing is so legendary, his father once said, that he wore a hole in the carpeting.
Mr. Kalanick focused on growing UberCab quickly. The company typically sent a small strike team into a new city — say, Seattle — to aggressively recruit new drivers through Craigslist and other online listings. Then the team marketed UberCab’s app to increase ridership.
That drew attention from regulators. In October 2010, the company shortened its name to Uber after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from San Francisco officials for marketing itself as a taxi company without the proper licenses and permits.
To influence local legislators to accept Uber, Mr. Kalanick took extra steps. In 2014, Uber hired Ben Metcalfe, an engineer who described his job on LinkedIn as building “custom tools to support citizen engagement across legislative matters” to drive “social good and social change.”
In practice, Mr. Metcalfe and his team created an email-based system to aid Uber users and drivers to directly contact local legislators to lobby for allowing Uber in their cities. The system was similar to Change.org, a website that pushes social change through online petitions. City and state officials were soon deluged with emails supporting Uber.
In some places, Uber employees were also told to create computer programs known as scripts that would automatically vote for the ride-hailing service in city-administered surveys.
Such tactics were effective. In 2015 when New York’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, tried capping the number of Uber cars, Uber added a “de Blasio” tab in its app to show lengthy waiting times for rides if legislation against Uber was allowed to go forward. People could easily send a form email to the mayor and City Council supporting Uber by pressing a button in the app.
Mr. de Blasio capitulated, and the cap did not take place.
Taking Center Stage
As Uber gained momentum, Mr. Kalanick moved into the spotlight.
It did not come naturally. One friend recalled a night out with a group of married couples at the Gold Club, a San Francisco strip club, a few years ago. Mr. Kalanick, who was single, pulled out a laptop to work on a spreadsheet, crunching Uber’s numbers while friends watched the dancers onstage.
Another friend called Mr. Kalanick a “tech world rock star,” which means something different in Silicon Valley than in the music world.
“To work with and around one requires a different kind of mentality and skill,” said Andy Abramson, an early adviser to Mr. Kalanick. Mr. Abramson likened the chief executive to other idiosyncratic founders like Jeff Bezos of Amazon.
Mr. Kalanick was eventually coaxed more into the limelight by others. Shervin Pishevar, an Uber investor, sometimes took Mr. Kalanick to clubs in Los Angeles on the weekend, providing a car and a change of “club clothes.” Mr. Pishevar, who did not respond to a request for comment, was the Uber chief’s entryway into Los Angeles’s world of celebrity.
Hollywood stars were eager to buy into Uber, which they had started using to get around. Actors like Edward Norton, Olivia Munn and Sophia Bush took small stakes in the company. Mr. Kalanick and a top lieutenant, Emil Michael, sometimes hung out with Leonardo DiCaprio, who is also an investor, and Jay Z, whose wife, Beyoncé, performed for Uber employees at a poolside party in Las Vegas in 2015.
Jay Z once wired money to Mr. Michael in an attempt to invest even more in Uber. Mr. Michael and Mr. Kalanick, giddy at rebuffing a celebrity, wired some of the money back, saying they already had too many interested investors. Representatives for Jay Z did not respond to requests for comment.
Mr. Kalanick also dreamed of luring celebrities into advisory roles at Uber. One aim was persuading Oprah Winfrey to join the board — something Uber executives believed could happen after Mr. Kalanick met Ms. Winfrey at a party on the Spanish island of Ibiza — but the idea never jelled. A spokeswoman for Ms. Winfrey declined to comment.
Mr. Kalanick began mixing with elite business executives. He developed a close relationship with Mr. Cohn, then a top-ranking executive at Goldman Sachs. At one point, the two men spoke on a near daily basis. Mr. Cohn and a White House spokeswoman did not return requests for comment.
Leadership Principles
Inside Uber, Mr. Kalanick began codifying the pillars of the company’s culture. He particularly admired Amazon, the e-commerce company that espouses 14 leadership principles including “learn and be curious” and “insist on the highest standards.” So he created 14 values for Uber, with tenets such as being “super pumped” and “always be hustlin.’”
Some employees admired Mr. Kalanick’s deep involvement in Uber. “TK was hands-on and in the product weeds,” said Chris Messina, who left Uber in January, using Mr. Kalanick’s nickname. “He cared deeply about the product and the people building it.”
Mr. Kalanick’s main mantra was “growth above all else.”
That meant Uber’s top performers were often promoted and protected. When one general manager, a title for a city-level chief, threw a coffee mug at a subordinate in a fit of rage, the incident was reported to human resources — but there was no follow up. At the time, Uber’s business in the general manager’s city was strong.
Other complaints also fell on deaf ears.
After a backlash over Uber’s use of “surge pricing” (raising ride prices when demand is high) amid an East Coast snowstorm in 2013, Mr. Kalanick’s response to upset riders was a torrent of economics and math.
“We did more trips because of our approach, not fewer,” he said in an interview withnWired at the time. “We gave people more options to get around, and that is the whole frickin’ goal.”
Friends and employees told Mr. Kalanick that he should at least pretend to care about how it looked to take such a hostile stance with Uber’s users. Several described him as “emotionally unintelligent.”
Mr. Kalanick made other missteps. In 2014, he and his then-girlfriend, Gabi Holzwarth, went to an escort bar in South Korea with Mr. Michael and other Uber employees, where they drank, sang karaoke and some members of the party picked out women as their dates for the evening. The incident, reported by The Information, resulted in a human resources complaint from an employee who attended.
That same year, Mr. Kalanick discussed how Uber had boosted his desirability with women in an interview with GQ, calling the company “boob-er.”
And just days after a former employee published a blog post in February detailing sexual harassment at Uber, Mr. Kalanick attended Vanity Fair’s Academy Awards party in Hollywood, stunning some colleagues with his perceived insensitivity.
His desire for growth also knew few limits. Uber plunged into China in 2013, and Mr. Kalanick spent billions of dollars to outgun the local incumbent Didi Chuxing — only to have to retreat last year, partly because of heavy losses. Mr. Kalanick is now spending heavily in India to win there, even offering to become an Indian citizen if it will help Uber’s prospects. The company has said that it lost $2.8 billion in 2016, excluding China.
For the Win
With Mr. Kalanick setting the tone at Uber, employees acted to ensure the ride-hailing service would win no matter what.
They spent much of their energy one-upping rivals like Lyft. Uber devoted teams to so-called competitive intelligence, purchasing data from an analytics service called Slice Intelligence. Using an email digest service it owns named Unroll.me, Slice collected its customers’ emailed Lyft receipts from their inboxes and sold the anonymized data to Uber. Uber used the data as a proxy for the health of Lyft’s business. (Lyft, too, operates a competitive intelligence team.)
Slice confirmed it sells anonymized data (meaning that customers’ names are not attached) based on ride receipts from Uber and Lyft, but declined to disclose who buys the information.
Uber also tried to win over Lyft’s drivers. Uber’s “driver satisfaction rating,” an internal metric, has dropped since February 2016, and roughly a quarter of its drivers turn over on average every three months. According to an internal slide deck on driver income levels viewed by The New York Times, Uber considered Lyft and McDonald’s its main competition for attracting new drivers.
To frustrate Lyft drivers, Uber dispatched some employees to order and cancel Lyft rides en masse. Others hailed Lyfts and spent the rides persuading drivers to switch to Uber full time.
After Mr. Kalanick heard that Lyft was working on a car-pooling feature, Uber also created and started its own car-pooling option, UberPool, in 2014, two days before Lyft unveiled its project.
That same year, Uber came close to buying Lyft. At a meeting at Mr. Kalanick’s house, and over cartons of Chinese food, he and Mr. Michael hosted Lyft’s president, John Zimmer, who asked for 15 percent of Uber in exchange for selling Lyft. Over the next hour, Mr. Kalanick and Mr. Michael repeatedly laughed at Mr. Zimmer’s audacious request. No deal was reached. Lyft declined to comment.
The rivalry remains in force. In 2016, Uber held a summit meeting in Mexico City for some top managers, where it distributed a playbook of how to cut into Lyft’s business and had sessions on how to damage its competitor.
To grow its own business, Uber sidestepped the authorities. Some employees started using a tool called Greyball to deceive officials trying to shut down Uber’s service. The tool, developed to aid driver safety and to trick fraudsters, essentially showed a fake version of Uber’s app to some people to disguise the locations of cars and drivers. It soon became a way for Uber drivers to evade capture by law enforcement in places where the service was deemed illegal.
After The Times reported on Greyball in March, Uber said it would prohibit employees from using the tool against law enforcement.
The idea of fooling Apple, the main distributor of Uber’s app, began in 2014.
At the time, Uber was dealing with widespread account fraud in places like China, where tricksters bought stolen iPhones that were erased of their memory and resold. Some Uber drivers there would then create dozens of fake email addresses to sign up for new Uber rider accounts attached to each phone, and request rides from those phones, which they would then accept. Since Uber was handing out incentives to drivers to take more rides, the drivers could earn more money this way.
To halt the activity, Uber engineers assigned a persistent identity to iPhones with a small piece of code, a practice called “fingerprinting.” Uber could then identify an iPhone and prevent itself from being fooled even after the device was erased of its contents.
There was one problem: Fingerprinting iPhones broke Apple’s rules. Mr. Cook believed that wiping an iPhone should ensure customers that no trace of the owner’s identity remained on the device.
So Mr. Kalanick told his engineers to “geofence” Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., a way to digitally identify people reviewing Uber’s software in a specific location. Uber would then obfuscate its code from people within that geofenced area, essentially drawing a digital lasso around those it wanted to keep in the dark. Apple employees at its headquarters were unable to see Uber’s fingerprinting.
The ruse did not last. Apple engineers outside of Cupertino caught on to Uber’s methods, prompting Mr. Cook to call Mr. Kalanick to his office.
Mr. Kalanick was shaken by Mr. Cook’s scolding, according to a person who saw him after the meeting.
But only momentarily. After all, Mr. Kalanick had faced off against Apple, and Uber had survived. He had lived to fight another day.

2016.11.16 02:31 Your-Fellow-Human Jesus Christ died for your sins? What does this mean?.. A study of world religions, metaphysics, cutting edge science, and the global conspiracy.

I started off as a rabid atheist. A skeptic by nature, at some point during my teens I decided to reject the idea of God completely, wrote it off as a "Santa Claus story for big kids who are afraid of death," and declared that there is nothing more to the world other than the material, and that all belief in the "supernatural" or any desire for "spiritual development" is downright stupid, if not outright criminal.
Boy was I wrong.
When I was 18 an event took place which shattered my entire understanding of reality. Simply put, if "something other than the material" did not exist, I would have been dead. I will describe this, as well as other events before and after at a later date; for now I will simply state that they are impossible to explain within the context of modern science: either reality is totally not what many people think it is, or..
At this point I was going to say "or I am literally imagining things," but no, how could that be.. many of the events had witnesses, and if several of them hadn't taken place, I would have literally not survived. So no, the events did in fact take place, other people were present, and the fact that I am in fact still here is proof, at least to myself, that something exists in this world which science has yet to explain.
Well then, what is it?
Herein lies the big question.. Because I was so dead-set in my conviction of atheism, it took me years after the aforementioned event to really begin to question whether God in fact exists, let alone accept it as a fact. The latter took.. probably close to a decade. Yes, I had witnessed divine intervention, and all it had initially accomplished was turning me from an atheist into an agnostic.
Fast forward to about a decade later. I was standing in front of my floor-to-ceiling high-rise window, overlooking the night-time skyline and lake. I had what you might call a "moment of clarity" - suddenly I saw all the events of my nearly 30-year life as a giant puzzle, each event serving a special purpose, hidden at the time, and visible only thereafter.
The realization brought tears to my eyes. I suddenly realized how terribly ungrateful I had been - how the events for which I questioned God had turned out to be my biggest blessings - how I had been nothing but a fool, taking each event at face value, instead of examining its long-term consequences as I should have.
It was now that I asked God, to prove once and for all for me, whether he does in fact exist. I stood there in front of my window, with tears in my eyes, and as I finished that thought, literally within a fraction of a second of making a request to receive a sign, a giant firework exploded outside my window.
I flew back, my mouth wide open in astonishment. This was the most astonishing moment of my entire life.
I would never question God's existence again. One more time, several years thereafter, I would ask for a sign - just in case.. just in case, I thought, just in case I had been wrong. Already knowing that God existed, and asking more out of the need for reassurance during a challenging time in my life, I promised to him then and there that if he gave me another sign, I would never ask again.
And he did. Literally within a fraction of a second of making the request, simultaneously really just like the last time, my wish was granted. Having stared at a cloudy sky for the better part of a half-hour, immediately upon making a request a bright light shone through the clouds, remained for several seconds, and then disappeared, not to be seen again.
The better part of the last half a decade - the time since the firework incident, had been spent figuring out exactly what the nature of reality really is. It took me as far as the mountains of China, and involved the study of nearly half a dozen of the world's religions, and anything from psychology to quantum physics.
Can I now definitively tell you what exactly God IS, and precisely, beyond a shadow of a doubt, explain the accurate nature of our reality? No, I cannot. Only two things I have been able to establish concretely: that a higher power, one that communicates and watches over us does in fact exist, and that the true nature of reality is incredibly far from that described by modern science.
The amount of events I have experienced so far, that prove to me concretely that God is real, does watch over us and does communicate with us, and that all sorts of other "supernatural" things are possible, is almost too high to calculate. In fact, to remember them all I would have to sit down for several hours and begin writing.
For now, it is sufficient to say that I have personally proven to myself, time and time again, the validity of everything from telepathy, to precognition and energetic healing. I had flat-out refused to believe in any of these things before, the last one even up until last year, and time and time again I had been proven wrong. The nature of reality isn't only not what most people think it is: it is EXTREMELY FAR from what most people think it is.
So where does this leave us? I am currently studying a number of world religions, and attempting to reconcile all of that with modern science. Absolutely every religion contains seeds of truth; in fact every religion I have studied is based almost ENTIRELY on truth - the problem is figuring out which tiny seeds of MIStruth have been planted therein, by deliberate mistranslations, omissions, and at times even outright fraud.
At this point, it seems reasonable to state that all of the world's religions, literally each and every one, have been infiltrated and corrupted to an extent - all of them, without exception, have offshoots and even majorities of people which have been grossly mislead by those who seek power; often of the metaphysical kind.
So what can I tell you now exactly? What are these seeds of truth?
  1. A world exists beyond the physical. A higher power exists in this world, and likely countless other beings, both positive and negative.
  2. Your actions in this life have a very significant, possibly permanent effect on what will happen to you upon physical death.
  3. This world is largely run by people, whose number one goal, beyond anything else, is to sow as much confusion as possible about the two items above.
What, exactly, do they want? Knowing that the "real world" exists in the higher dimensions, their number one goal is to bring your soul under the control of the negative metaphysical entities to which they answer.
This is the purpose of the so-called "New World Order," the real goal of which, as many of you already know, is to establish a worldwide Luciferian religion. These people already have almost all of the money and power - now, they are after the only thing they DON'T have: your SOUL!
Almost everything you see on the news, from wars to any number of major world events, is all part of this giant, mushrooming conspiracy. Everything, from the confiscation of guns, to the push for mandatory vaccines, to the promotion of promiscuity, to the intended destruction of traditional family values, is somehow connected.
Surprisingly, it is not difficult to explain, understand or even prove. In fact, in the age of information, many times more proof than is absolutely necessary exists. The real challenge is figuring out what it is, in a sea of disinfo, and finding the time to study it, in a life deliberately designed for maximum distraction, drudgery, and otherwise enslavement.
If you wish to understand this conspiracy in its fullest, I invite you to visit HenryMakow.com, or PressCore.ca, and just read every single thing you can find. These sources are extremely accurate, and very well researched. There is no information I can provide you with, that you yourself cannot find there, or by searching the related topics on google.
The truth, as the saying goes, is out there.
So where does this bring us? The elites of this world, it seems, are hellbent on taking control over your soul, by any means necessary. How, you might ask, is this planned to be accomplished, and what, can you as an individual, do to definitively stop it?
The only way that they can gain control over your soul, literally the most precious "commodity" in the universe - the only thing that in the "real world" in the higher dimensions has any real "value," is to cut you off from the divine protection of God. Understand: God is infinitely powerful - there is no battle going on between God and "them" - the only battle taking place is between them and YOU..
So how, then, can they accomplish the goal of taking you away from underneath God's protective wing, and leaving your soul unprotected, so that the negative higher-dimensional entities to which they answer, can accomplish their goal of taking it over and making you their slave? Very simple: sin.
What is "sin"? Sin is transgression against universal law. Sin, generally speaking, is anything that harms yourself or others. Everything listed as "sin" in the Bible, from greed, to murder, or even desiring your neighbor's wife, if followed through upon, will in some way lead to your own destruction, and often that of others.
God, you see, is not in the business of telling you what to do, or forcing you in some way to follow some set of imaginary rules: his aim, always, is to protect you from YOURSELF, and that of the negative influence of others. He so respects your free will, that if you choose to do so, you even have the ability to kill, for which of course you will face the appropriate consequences.
So if you're asking yourself "why doesn't God just step in" - this is why. We have free will, and this world runs in accordance to it. God does not allow murder, poverty and injustice - WE do. We could, just as easily, STOP allowing it, which is, sooner or later, what the human race will come to. A better world is coming, but first we must win the battle within ourselves..
So what is this battle? You see, the real purpose of this world, as it exists today, is somewhat that of a "school." In the beginning, God would create metaphysical entities and let them roam free. He still does, because he respects free will. But sometime in history, an event took place, which turned everything in the "heavens" upside down - one of these entities rebelled.
His name, of course is Lucifer, and if you doubt that he exists, you only have to look at the back of the dollar bill - all four of his logos are prominently displayed: the eye, pyramid, phoenix and hexagram. Along with a bunch of others.. But let us not get lost in the details - you can research all these on your own time. Let's get back to the story.
How can you, as an individual, protect your soul? Two ways: 1) Accept God's divine protection, rejecting false "gods" and atheism. 2) Avoid transgressions against universal law, particularly murder, which includes abortion.
How do you accomplish #1? Quite simply just ask for it. It is freely given. You do not have to "earn" it, you do not have to go to church, you do not have to do anything except make a free will choice to ask for it. God doesn't force anything on to you - if you ask, it is given. If you don't, it is not. You have free will, which is respected at all times: make your choice, and enjoy the consequences.
How do you accomplish #2? Also very simple: avoid harming anybody, at any cost. Even and especially if somebody tries to trick you saying "it is for the common good." This is exactly how the devil operates - as the saying goes "the road to hell is paved with good intentions." Countless souls have been lost, by being tricked into committing evil, out of their desire to do good.
Remember, the command is clear: "thou shalt not kill." "Thou shalt not steal." "Thou shalt not commit adultery." There is no "if," or any sort of a fine print, attached to these statements. So what will happen if you disobey? Will God "send you to hell" for killing somebody? Well, yes and no..
First of all, God doesn't "send" anybody anywhere. YOU do. Regardless of where you live on Earth, or what religion you follow, you've been informed that if you commit murder, there will be very serious consequences. You've been given the knowledge. God freely offers his protection, and offers you an afterlife in a positive higher dimension. He made you; he wants you to be happy.
If, however you reject him, and reject the universal law of harmlessness, and it is within your right of free will to do so, you naturally give up his divine protection, and give up the ability to live in his realm, because you have chosen to do so, of your own free will, despite being warned of the consequences. What happens then?
Well, then it's just you and Lucifer. That old "rebel" we talked about earlier. If you reject God, your false "god" becomes Lucifer (or Satan, Ra, Odin, Zeus - these are all the same), and you will now go to live in HIS realm, with the corresponding consequences.
So what's that like? Well, as it happens, I am in a unique position to tell you PRECISELY what it's like: I had taken Salvia three times, and each time experienced one of the three modes of existence: first as a disembodied spirit (an out of body experience) within the Earthy realm, and then once in a realm of "light," and once in a realm of "darkness."
Cutting a long story very short: having an out of body experience is really cool - you get to fly through walls and fly around at the height of a bird, it's amazing. The "light" realm is really cool as well - it's infinite light, in every direction, and I've heard that you can materialize anything you want at will, however I haven't done so: my experience included "simply" floating through an endless sea of light and having a telepathic conversation with a giant 15 or 20-foot "father figure" being with a "head" consisting of nothing but an extremely large sphere of blur and bright light above his shoulders.
On my third trip, I ended up in a realm of absolute darkness: so dark, in fact, that you literally cannot see what's right in front of you. Only extremely faint sources of dark red and dark purple light remain, but literally so dark that you cannot even see the ground beneath your feet, or, in fact, if there even is a ground! What there are plenty of however are WALLS..
Yes, walls! Upon my "arrival," I was immediately met by a giant, perhaps 20 foot tall female being. She communicated with me telepathically and had a very commanding voice - not angry, but very willful, in sharp contrast to the positive being's extremely calm and fatherly demeanor. She did not however seem at all aggressive, but commanded me to follow her while towering over the other side of the wall.
The ones who were aggressive were.. her minions. I won't go into detail, but imagine the absolutely most horrifying things possible, worse than any horror movie, and you won't be far from the truth. In my case, they started off by wrapping my body around the wheels of a tank, and commenced the process of running me over. You feel everything, and you can't die.. Yep, welcome to hell.
Why does this happen? My understanding is that negative metaphysical beings, while still requiring energy to survive, have cut themselves off from God, and the high-vibrational energy of love on which he and all the positive beings operate. Then, in order to thrive or maybe even just survive, they require the exact opposite - the low-vibrational energy of fear. It is likely that this, to them, is "food," and they are energy parasites.
You should now understand why, having ended up in a negative lower astral realm like that, there might be no means to escape. They will continually torture you to keep extracting that negative energy they want, so how exactly, in a realm fully controlled by them, are you going to get out of there?.. Chances are, you are not. Ever..
The Bible does however say that at some point, the beings in all realms, both positive and negative, will be "resurrected" - physically materialized back on Earth, to give those who have made the gravest mistake another chance for salvation. But after that point, their choice will be final, and the consequences permanent.
How true is all this? As far as I'm concerned, very true. The actions of the Luciferian New World Order are mirroring those predicted in the Bible almost literally word for word. Somehow, 3000 years prior, the Bible had accurately predicted that the UN will be divided into 10 regions (it has), its leaders will choose to follow Lucifer (they have), and it has even predicted the origin, genetic makeup, and religion of the people who run it.
For more info on all this, feel free to google a PDF of "Satan - Prince of this World" - a book partly finished by a Commander of the Canadian Army before he died.
So then, where does this leave us? Ah yes, Jesus Christ and why he died for your sins. This is, surprisingly both very easy and very difficult to understand. Somehow, it had taken me years to really begin to grasp it, and only tonight had it finally clicked. This post started out with a plan to write just a few short paragraphs on only that subject, and as you can see has somehow gotten "slightly out of hand".. :)
So, who is Jesus Christ and why did he die for your sins? Jesus Christ was born Yeshua ben Yosef - he was a young Jewish rabbi, and looked very much like a modern-day Palestinian (in fact, many if not all of them are Biblical Jews, who converted to Islam many centuries later). This is why many, if not most people today calling themselves Jews look nothing like the people from that geographical area - because they came from Khazaria, in Europe, and converted to Judaism 800 years ago.
Anyway, so who was Jesus Christ, what did he do, and why is he the central figure of the entirety of human history and in the middle of literally all of the major events in the world today, which as we discussed are all part of a plan to bring about a Luciferian "New World Order" (see ThreeWorldWars.com).
Jesus Christ, as far as I'm concerned, is God, the Father Yahweh (meaning I Create; Yah means I Am), who incarnated in the flesh, to save us from ourselves. His real name was Yeshua, Yahshua or Yahushua - I'm still trying to figure that one out. But it certainly wasn't Jesus Christ - he had never heard those words in his life. And neither had he heard "Amen," which originally meant "truly," or "verily."
Earlier tonight, I was sitting down and researching reincarnation. I had gone from not believing in any sort of an afterlife in my earlier years, to being fully convinced of reincarnation (until this year), to now researching the possibility that it is in fact Satanist propaganda, as claimed by all of the Christian Truthers out there (if you want the most accurate picture of the world today - listen to THESE people).
Anyway, so I was sitting down and reviewing some articles, and trying to decide whether reincarnation is real, and if it is, how it can be compatible with Christian doctrine. I had studied, and continue to study, religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism pretty extensively, with the goal of building the most accurate picture of "reality" there is. So I finally got to an article attempting to debunk reincarnation and also speaking about Jesus Christ, when it hit me..
Even within the Eastern philosophy of karma, which states that you will continue reincarnating on Earth until all your karmic debts are paid, the actions of Jesus Christ make sense. In fact, even from the viewpoint of these religions, perhaps they make the MOST sense: GOD HAD WILLINGLY SACRIFICED HIMSELF TO PAY YOUR KARMIC DEBT!!!
It finally dawned on me why the Bible stressed over and over that you have to ACCEPT what Jesus Christ had done in order to be "saved." Prior to tonight, I was unable to tangibly connect the two: why would you have to ACCEPT what he had done for it to work - has he done it or not?! What does your "acceptance" of his actions have to do with anything?!
And tonight it hit me: by accepting what Jesus Christ had done, YOU ARE USING YOUR FREE WILL TO REDIRECT YOUR KARMIC DEBT ON TO HIM, THEREBY DEPLETING YOUR KARMIC DEBT AND BEING "SAVED"!
Ahhhh.. You see, this is one of the reasons I've worked so hard these past few years - taking hundreds of Yoga classes, spending countless hours pouring over ancient and modern texts, listening to various teachers, and often spending hours a day in meditation. It was THIS - to link ALL of the world's religions into ONE, and build a COMPLETE PICTURE OF REALITY, reconciling both religion, spirituality and science.
This work is still far from complete, and further updates will follow. But today, I have achieved a major step, towards its completion. And I am quite happy, my friends, to bring you the fruits - this priceless knowledge, most priceless commodity of all, that you can now use to save, benefit and protect yourself. God bless you, I love you all! :) <3

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS (ADD YOURS BY ASKING!)
Can you prove the supernatural is real?
Yes. There is literally 100 times more evidence than necessary to prove that there is more to the universe than the physical world.
Can you prove that Jesus Christ existed?
Yes. There are nearly 25,000 hand written ancient copies of the New Testament. The story of Jesus Christ is the single most documented event in all of ancient history. Many of these were written just decades after his death. One of the most noted historians of the time, Josephus, wrote that Jesus was crucified, and in return his followers had nearly burnt down Rome. That would be like millions of people today following someone who died in 1970 but never existed. If we cannot be sure about the story of Jesus Christ, we cannot be sure about absolutely anything in our entire recorded history.
Why has religion been used for so much evil?
Because following the events described above, Roman emperor Constantine had the "brilliant" idea to take over Christianity in 325 AD. It's been mostly run by Sun (Sol / Ra / Lucifer) worshippers ever since. After spending 3 centuries killing Christians, only to have the faith grow completely out of control, Rome realized that the only way to control it is to take it over. They then used it to attempt to destroy Islam (the Crusades), which follows the same God (the only God). Christianity, Islam and Judaism all stem from Abraham. Muhammed said: "Muslims must protect Christians until the end of time. It is imperative that no one of Islam breaks this sacred oath." Islam, like every other religion, has since been infiltrated and partially led astray.
Who rules the world?
The guys mentioned above. Read the sites I linked for more info..
What's coming next?
They are trying to implement a worldwide Luciferian religion. They think this will trigger Biblical "Judgement Day," until which the dark metaphysical entities they answer to are trapped within the physical and lower astral realms. They want to be judged - they want a way out..
What can we do?
I don't know.. Figure it out. :) For now, simply make sure you, personally are protected. Ask God for divine protection. Ask him to forgive you for any wrong that you've done. Accept Jesus Christ as your "lord and savior." Basically just talk to God and ask him in any and every way imaginable to protect you. Tell him to protect your soul most of all, including from yourself. Your body doesn't matter - it's your soul that's important. Nothing in this life is "real" - there is no space / time / matter: it's all just energy (even physics will tell you that). The only thing that matters is your soul. It is the only thing that will remain after physical death. Nothing you acquire in this life is real, except spiritual lessons that help grow your soul..
What should we watch out for?
Do not transgress against universal law - meaning do not harm others in any way shape or form imaginable. Do not "sin" or break the Commandments. They are all there for a reason - the Bible is essentially a Universal Law handbook - a manual for life. Read it cover to cover. :) Watch out for any sort of Luciferianism. This includes any sort of worship of any other "entities" or "gods," including "Mother Nature." You can APPRECIATE nature, but remember that it is a CREATION (like false "gods") - you must only love the Creator, not the creation. "Gaia" is a term that was deliberately created to label "Mother Nature" - Gaia is actually "Queen of Heaven" Ishtar, a Babylonian "Earth goddess," in other words Isis / Lucifer. This is a ruse.. Paganism / wicca are deadly. "Nature spirits" are none other than these dark entities imprisoned within the third-dimensional (our) realm. You are not to worship them under any means, unless you want what is described in this article to happen to YOU.. Read the link above about Nimrod to find out about Gaia and the like. This is what the Egyptian trinity of Horus / Isis / Set is based on: Nimrod, his wife Semiramis, and her son/husband Tammuz. This is how the original Earthly, Lucifer-inspired rebellion against God began in SumeBabylon. This dates back to the very beginning of our civilization. All of the ancient false "gods" of Sumer, Babylon, Egypt, Greece, Rome and Europe are none other than the Biblical "fallen angels" - the Elohim. Elohim means "children of El," and El is the Canaanite bull deity to which they sacrificed children. Tammuz became Ra, became Zeus, became Jupiter, became Odin, became Lucifer. These are all one and the same. The "sun god." Stay as far away from any planet worship as possible. Especially sun, moon, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Watch out for the alien deception (google Project Blue Beam) - the "Annunnaki" of course are simply demons. They are not our creators, nor are they here to help us. The "Pleiadians" and all of the other "aliens" you've ever heard of are probably the same.
Can you prove the Biblical Flood is real?
Yes. There is enormous geological evidence for a worldwide flood that covered even the Himalayas. Please read the article linked in this answer.
Can you prove the story of Noah?
Yes. The Ark has been found, exactly where the Bible said it was. Check out the ground penetrating radar scans confirming it used metal construction techniques that were supposed to not have been invented until MILLENNIA later. It's real and it's absolutely HUGE.. Check out the number of levels! Could it have held two of EVERY type of animal on Earth? No, but it held quite a few.. How the others survived I have no idea since even the Himalayas were flooded (there are fossilized shellfish up there - read the article about the Flood linked above).
Why did God flood the world?
The Elohim, headed by Lucifer, mated with the human women, producing a race of evil giants that enslaved the world. The entire world descended into madness - endless war, poverty, slavery, starvation, and probably their hallmarks of child sacrifice and even cannibalism. These were called the Nephilim. They were destroyed in the flood.
Can you prove the Nephilim existed?
Yes. These skulls contain NON-HUMAN DNA and the shape is far larger than the human head, meaning it was impossible to achieve via cranial binding. These are non-human. There are lots of pictures of fake giant skeletons online. There are probably real ones as well..
What is Project Blue Beam?
Project Blue Beam is the centerpiece of the Luciferian NWO. If carried out, it will be a staged First Contact, with the "aliens" being none other than demons. They will "tell us the error of our ways," stating that God is actually Lucifer (by the name of Maitreya, Ashtar, Sanat Kumara, or any other false "Messiah" names they are attempting to popularize through the New Age movement). If you wanna watch an actual Project Blue Beam brainwashing video, you can do so here. Note the cameo by Bush and the announcement of the "New World Order." The site they've set up to carry this out is Gaia.com (aptly named after Satan), which spreads false spirituality (worship of Pagan Norse Elohim like Lilith/Sophia and some of the other fake "messiahs" mentioned above), spiritually damaging yoga, spiritually damaging meditation, false history (fake "hidden origins"), alien deception ("cosmic discosure" - Corey Goode is a liar; David Wilcock is a willing enabler), and even communism (Ubuntu Contributionism - the NWO is planned to be communist, not just Luciferian).
Can you prove the NWO Luciferians are behind communism?
Yes it's very simple - just Google who paid Lenin, Mao and Stalin. Or who Marx worked for. They've been behind communism from day one. The NWO is planned to be a communist moneyless Luciferian dictatorship. "Venus Project" and "Zeitgeist Movement" are both their projects.
Can you prove Zeitgeist is Luciferian propaganda?
Yes. This video absolutely and totally debunks the Satanic propaganda part of the movie - coincidentally check out how heavily it got downvoted by shills, even though it historically proves its points 100%. Zeitgeist told you what everyone already knew about 9/11 and the Fed, so that it can feed you anti-Christian propaganda. This is the way they always work - it's called "lies wrapped in truth." They give you a nice beautiful package wrapped in things you already know are real, so that you trust them, and vicious lies designed to destroy you are packaged inside. This is the way they always work. Gaia.com works in exactly this manner. If you check out their Instagram for instance - it is non stop Satan worship (disguised as other names mentioned above), shamanism (same thing) and so forth. Absolute evil.. You can even watch David Wilcock "channeling Ra" (he isn't) on YouTube. He cashed in on the "2012 end of the world" nonsense and this is his new project. Along with Corey Goode, who can "summon aliens at will" but in years of talking about it has not produced a single photograph. What a joke. But with respect to communism, just Google or YouTube anything like "Zeitgeist NWO," "Venus Agenda 21" or "NWO communism."
Why do they want a communist society?
Because communism means you have no property or vote, meaning you cannot oppose them. This is the aim of Venus and Zeitgeist projects, which are also designed to destroy religion. These projects are evil..
Can you disprove evolution?
Yes. The better question is: can anybody living or dead PROVE evolution, and the answer is no, never. Not a single scientist living or dead has ever been able to prove it. The link in the preceding sentence shows a letter signed by 700 of the world's top scientists stating that nobody, not even the world's top chemists, not even Nobel laureates - nobody can, or ever has, been able to prove evolution. No organism in history has ever become more complex - it has never happened, because it is impossible. No fossil, in the entire history of creation, has ever proven that evolution is possible. It has never happened - even though millions of such fossils would have been found, we have found zero. Zero. None, in all of recorded history. Here is a list of all the fraudulent fossils produced to attempt to prove the evolution hoax which were later found and discredited. The reason they started teaching evolution in schools half a century ago is because of this fraud. People refused to accept it, so they created fake fossils (see the article for photos and proof - the entire scientific community knows this) to try to convince people. By the time the public found out the fraud, it was already too late and evolution was in the curriculum. Each new generation was then indoctrinated into believing it - it wasn't that long ago, this happened to your grandparents. It is a complete and total lie - the physical universe was simply "materialized," in the same exact manner that anything in the higher dimensions is materialized. Higher dimensional beings (us, after physical death) can create anything there, by simply thinking it. This is how God created the physical universe - he simply THOUGHT it. Everything is energy - even Einstein and Tesla have told you that there is no such thing as space / time / matter - it is simply energy condensed to a low vibration appearing solid. Tesla, the greatest scientist in all of known human history, had stated: "My brain is only a receiver. In the [metaphysical] universe there is a core [God] from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists." Tesla received his miraculous inventions "in visions of bright light."
What are some of the names of Satan we should watch out for?
Lucifer, Ra, Zeus, Odin, Moloch, Dionysis, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Maitreya, Mithra, Pan, Apollyon, Azazel, Sanat Kumara, Ashtar, Anu, Horus, Osiris, Sirius, Sol, Surya, Ishtar, Isis, Lilith, Sophia, Venus, Libertas, Gaia. Did I miss any?.. :) Basically anything out of Sumer / Babylon / Egypt / Greece / Rome / paganism.
Which authors should we avoid?
Blavatsky, Bailey, Crowley, basically the entire New Age movement.
So the universe is intelligently created?
Yes of course. :) Math is woven into basically everything in the entire universe.. Geometry, like the "flower of life" is everywhere. Geometry is in every flower, and even honeycomb. It's literally everywhere.. The Fibonacci numbers are everywhere in nature. The universe is incredibly complex, with each quantum particle "knowing what to do" - to arrange into electrons, then atoms, then molecules, organs and species! All of which are intricately interwoven and interconnected.. With multiple dimensions (2d, 3d, 4d) allowing higher dimensional beings (us) to incarnate into lower dimensional (3rd dimension) bodies. This is intelligent design.. intelligent design is IMPOSSIBLE without an Intelligent Designer. Period. :) God is real.. Look up the cosmological constant - even if everything above wasn't enough, the odds of our Universe being able to support the creation of planets "by chance" is trillions of trillions to one.. It's literally mathematically impossible. I assure you that you are not dirt that suddenly came to life, arranged itself into atoms, then molecules, then built an incredibly complex being on its own, became SELF-AWARE, and then created a SOUL. The odds of everything above having happened "on its own" are literally infinity to one.. It can't happen. Period. :)
What do you mean by saying this is a "school"?
Initially, only metaphysical beings were created. Before the physical world (the third dimension) existed. You saw what happened with Lucifer.. So, this is Universe design 2.0. Now you must PROVE that you are a benevolent being before being admitted into the positive higher-dimensional astral realm ("Heaven"). You come here with no knowledge or memory of who you are, and begin with no "proof" of the existence of God, or of punishment for your actions. You are TOLD that this exists, so that if you are truly a benevolent good-hearted being you will ACCEPT this and treat your fellow men and women with love, but if you are evil inside you will REJECT it, thereby barring your entry into the higher dimension where your power is limitless. There, you can materialize anything by will, and your free will is not restricted (which is why Lucifer was able to do what he did), so the only way to avoid a repeat is for you to PROVE your intentions ahead of time. Until you do this, you don't get in.. This is the only way. :)
What's with the story of Eve & Adam?
Eve & Adam were perfect, higher dimensional beings. Until Lucifer got to them.. The story of the "tree of knowledge" is a metaphor. Luci convinced Eve to try sex, and she did. Having had sex, Adam & Eve were now ADDICTED.. They now had shame, because they disobeyed God, they also had addiction (lust), jealousy, and presumably even anger (if they did not get what they want). The vibrational frequency of their Souls, having become incredibly corrupted, had dropped below the minimum threshold necessary to remain in the higher realm. It is a place for perfected beings, not ones full of fear, shame, anger, jealousy and lust. Lucifer told Eve that "ye shall have knowledge of good & evil, ye shall be as God." This was, in a sense true (welcome to how Satan works) - having previously known only good, they now knew evil, "as God." Originally, God had intended for reproduction to take place as everything else does in the higher realms - via thought. He could simply MATERIALIZE new humans. Having chosen to take matters into their own hands, Adam & Eve, by their OWN actions, ended up in the lower third-dimensional realm, where reproduction had to be carried out via sex. Now came the hunger, disease, aging and death. They were tricked.. Prior to all this, God had told them that if they do this, they will die. Satan told them "ye shall not surely die," which was both a lie and truth (again, Satan). They COULDN'T die because their souls were immortal, but they DID die as humans, exactly as God warned them. The story of humanity is the story of God trying to save his creation from itself, and the said creation, usually through sheer stupidity (with Satan's help), constantly failing to do so. Luckily, not for long..

2016.08.04 15:23 LilLamby My Friend's House

I’m not quite sure how to explain all of this. I’ve never posted in the Paranormal subreddit before but I hope that someone can tell me what the hell is going on at my friend’s house…
A little bit of back story: I took a job on the east coast and I am currently living with a friend until my apartment becomes available this month. Sophia and I met back in college. We have known each other for over four years and there is about an 8-year difference in our ages (she being 32 and I 24). It is important to note that Sophia has a family of her own. She and her husband (we’ll call him “D”) have been married for ten years. Together, they have an 8-year-old daughter (“N,” who I have known since she was 3) and a 2-year-old daughter named “J.” They also have a dog named Amigo, an 11-year-old Akita-mix.
They also recently purchased a house that is about 80-years-old. Where I’m from, realtors are not allowed to disclose whether a previous owner died in the home to potential buyers. Sophia found this out when she asked if the wife of the elderly man who they bought the house from had died in the home. The realtor said she could not answer.
So I move-in about the middle of June. Things go by and nothing unusual happens. I help out as much as I can around the house, babysit the kids, eat dinner with them. You know…normal stuff.
It was on July 7th that the first weird thing occurred. Sophia and the girls were up in DC visiting her dad. D had to remain back home since he could not get time off of work and he doesn’t come back until late on weekend nights. Enjoying having the house to myself, I do a couple of chores and lock myself in the guest room, playing video games and listening to YouTube videos. I turn a few lights on in the house so that it wouldn’t be dark when D got home.
It’s about 7:30 or 8:00pm when I come out of my room for a snack and I notice that the lamp I had turned on in the living room was off. My first thought was that the bulb had burnt out and I went to check on it. I turn the switch to make sure it was off for me to change the bulb…
The lamp turns on, and the bulb is completely fine.
I thought it was odd but my next thought was that D had come home and was napping in the bedroom. But in addition to D’s car not being in the driveway, which I could see from the living room, Amigo would have gotten excited if D had returned home and I would have heard his movements. I grabbed a knife from the kitchen and with Amigo beside me, I proceed to check the entire house and closets in case someone had broken-in. After I made sure the house was locked-up and lit-up like a Christmas tree, I locked myself in my room with the knife until D got home that night.
Things started to get weirder after Sophia and the girls got back. I will hear movement outside my windows, as if something is moving about in the bushes outside. Then one time while Sophia and D were out on a date, I was putting J to bed when I noticed that she kept looking at her closet. It didn’t matter how much I would talk to her, her attention was still on her closet. I sat down next to her crib and talked to her until she fell asleep. But ever since then, I get a weird vibe from that closet.
I should also note that J suffers from separation anxiety and will have breakdowns when Sophia is not within her sight, such as when Sophia leaves for work in the mornings. But for the last couple of weeks, J has been waking up in the night and crying out for Sophia. J won’t stop until Sophia comes to her room and takes J to her and D’s room. Since J’s room is right next to mine, I can hear her crying and moving about in her crib. It always seems like clockwork, and she wakes up at the same timeslot (between 1:00 or 3:00am)
Last week, I was up late playing video games, trying to unwind before I began to pack for my trip to see my family for the weekend. It was around 2:00 or 2:30am when J began to cry. Since she is 2, the most she will say is “Mommy” while rattling her crib. But this time, she said something that she has never said before:
“Mommy, I’m dying.”
Those words made me stop whatever I was doing, scared out of my mind and unsure of what to do. Thankfully, Sophia came in and brought J to her room. I quickly got my stuff together, got ready for bed, and left the lamp on in my room while I slept, covering my head with a blanket enough for me to look out for anything.
Am I worried over nothing? Am I going crazy? I’m afraid to say anything to Sophia about this. I will keep you guys updated if anything else happens while I am at her house.
