As Strattera explained, he and Flyss installed a re-broadcasting device on the video feed they’d found behind the door off the mirror room. Though we next claimed on this blog that they were traveling to the remote site itself to take photographs, we actually have far too much respect for the capacities of True Immortals to imagine for a moment that we could investigate that site directly without being perceived by them. Instead, we decided to take the far more humble route of triggering a reaction at the remote site without visiting it, and view the reaction through the rebroadcast tap.
At this point in our process, we unexpectedly discovered that Google Maps posts a street-level view of the remote building. (This is probably no accident. More on that subject soon.) We capitalized on this fact to test of whether the Immortals are reading this blog. Had they been, the “live blogging posts” should have triggered some form of response. True, it is possible that they already knew Google possesses detailed photos of their trap. But if so, they would be unlikely to maintain a trap there; in any case, we had carried through enough manipulation of the Google imagery to make our photographs appear original.
When there was no reaction whatsoever to the live blogging posts, we cast about for a way to “cast a stone in the water” without having to walk up to the edge of the pond. This we accomplished by means of an action that is slightly illegal and is therefore not detailed here. (FYI, it involved nothing more nefarious than a small misuse of the emergency response system, and we have made an anonymous financial contribution that should more than offset the costs we incurred.) We additionally ensured that it was adequately telegraphed in advance by having it announced over police radio, in the confidence that they would monitor police frequencies if only to avoid accidental detection by police conducting unrelated operations.
The result was impressive: A sizable fleet of black limousines arrived, and more than a dozen people in blue & black uniforms poured out of the building and departed via the limousines.
Yes, we have photos. But we shall not post them there. We refrain on purpose, to show our respect for their secrets, to bury in this blog a message that they can read when at last they do discover us: We shall not expose anything about you. Google may be a threat to you, but we are not. (continued in my next post) — Stephen
