Offset-embedded characters

Friday, May 14th, 2010

I believe our guest blogger Strattera is correct that this offset-embedding represents Japanese characters. I whipped together a computer program to extract them more precisely than his hand-drawn attempt. Here’s what came out.

I would appreciate the aid of any of our readers who can translate it for us. If it’s helpful, this was written on the back: “Her sister’s province.” — Stephen


Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Thanks to Stephen and our reader Aaron, we’ve now translated the message embedded in the image Flyss found. It reads “Izumo shi,” or the city of Izumo.  The name itself means “city where the clouds come out.” It’s a moderately small city of about 150,000.

Perhaps of note, it contains one of the oldest shinto shrines in Japan, called Izumo Taisha. As early as 950, it was about 150 feet tall, according to records of the time, and might have been the tallest wooden structure in Japan.

The presence of that shrine intuitively strikes me as significant. One might naturally expect Immortals to attempt to manipulate religious traditions for their own ends.  But I don’t know if there are any East Asian versions of the Illuminati mythology.  There are certainly many tales of immortals.  This site describes mythologized incidents in which a person just happens to run across an immortal, or becomes an immortal. There are many more stories of this type in China. See, for example, this page.

There’s a lot to work with here.  We also still need to put the city of Izumo together with the phrase “My sister’s province.” — Glenn

P.S. I’m adding this subject to a new category called “Messages.”

Japanese poem

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

There’s a touching poem on one of those pages Glenn found. It was written in the year 900, but uses an image from a much older story. In the original story, a person is given an immortality herb of some kind, and when he wakes from a nap the handle of the ax he had with him has rotted away.  He hurries home, but everyone he knows is long dead.  In the later use, this feeling is applied to a more ordinary return from long travel.  It makes me realize that we experiences the same losses Immortals do. For them, it’s just more extreme.

Here’s the poem.

I’ve come back home.
There is no friend to play Go with.
That place far away
where an axe handle turned to dust -
how dear to me it has become!


Sister city

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

An attempt to decipher the message: Izumo has a sister city in the US: Santa Clara, California.  The province of sister city might be the county it’s in.  So that would be Santa Clara county. Maybe the blue&black branch or subdivision of Immortals has relocated there. - Glenn

[Later note: Our reader Merlin has sent my mind in another direction.  See this comment by him.]

Fascinating infrastructure

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Amazing information in your last eight posts, Flyss! It boggles the mind to think what infrastructure they have to be able to field so many agents in public, and not be observed. They must have fingers into every level of government, from the city on up, as well as controlling the media and probably the street gangs too.

I notice in a comment where you say you think this “Yahahnna” knows about our blog. I also assume that’s what she means by “your world that is not in the world.” Probably, she has access to the NSA, and all those levels of government.

On another note, have you followed the thread that leads to Japan? Inspired by our reader Merlin, I found numerous examples of Japanese gongs online that look much like our symbol, such as this one:

The difference here, though, is that this gong, like all others I’ve found, is held from above only, whereas in the symbol it’s held from the side as well:

Secret Society of Immortals

If we could find a gong of this design, we might be well on our way to picking up a new trail. I wonder if you’d consider going to Izumo to see if you find any examples there. – Glenn

P.S. Or, if any readers are near Izumo, and can look for a gong that matches our “illuminati symbol,” that would be tremendously helpful.

More on the message, and the symbol, and their connection.

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Some interesting new ideas both on that message and the blue&black symbol .

As you may recall, there are two theories, one pointing to Santa Clara County in California (as the “province” of the city that is sister city to Izumo) and the other pointing directly at Japan.

During her meeting with Flyss, the Eldest said, “Both friends and not friends live where the trees are cold, and old and soft and high.” That would certainly fit with the Santa Clara theory, as redwood trees are all of these, and they abound in that part of California.

On the other hand, the accumulation of Japanese motifs is considerable. As our reader Merlin pointed out, the symbol bears a clear resemblance to a Japanese hanging gong. More recently, another reader directed out attention to the Japanese religious structure called a Torii. Here is a famous example:

A Torii is placed at the entrance to Shinto shrines, and marks the transition from secular to sacred space. The similarity between a Torii and the blue&black symbol is clearer when one looks at a simple version, such as this one:

If you simply move down the second bar, or “tiepiece,” and put a gong in the middle of it, you have the shape of the symbol almost exactly:

Secret Society of Immortals

I find this all quite suggestive. Perhaps we can combine these two linkages into one: that an order or secret society of True Immortals called the “blue&blacks” migrated from Izumo, Japan to the vicinity of Santa Clara, California, bringing with them a symbol that combines the sacred Torii with a Japanese hanging gong.

Furthermore, it is perhaps not unrelated that Izumo has one of Japan’s most ancient Shinto shrines, supposedly built at the dawn of time by Ōkuninushi, when Japan was ruled from Izumo. What if Ōkuninushi was an Immortal? He would naturally be thought of as a god. And what if Ōkuninushi later left Japan for the New World, landing in California, and founded some habitation there, now calling himself Antipollus? [Note: It appears that the actual Immortal involved is a as a woman named Sollaya/Soraya. See the comments to this post, as well as full posts that will follow soon.] Perhaps the most recent migration from Oklahoma to California is a joining or linking up of two groups, those living underground in Oklahoma having a different origin, but linking up with Antipollus’ group? One can easily imagine that a dense redwood forest would be an ideal place to hide out from prying eyes. – Glenn

Where the UN charter was signed

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

In response to the second set of “hall of mirrors” photos taken off Glenn’s USB stick, a reader responded, “The UN charter.” This initially seemed to make no sense at all. However, it turns out to be the key to this entire matter.

As it happens, the original UN charter was signed in San Francisco, at a building called the Veterans War Memorial. In the basement of that building there’s a cocktail lounge/bar. Remarkably, there are no photos of it on Google images or Flikr. But its existence is no secret to San Francisco residents, who know it as the bar beneath Herbst Theater. We sent photos of the mirrored room to a contact in San Francisco, and he confirmed that these are one and the same place.

To repeat: the mirrored room is in the basement of the building where the UN charter was signed, currently the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center.

Illuminati focal point?

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

To continue.
As I noted in my last post, it turns out that the mirrored room is in the basement of Herbst Theater, the place where the UN charter was signed.

Personally, I’ve never believed that the UN is part of any global Illuminati conspiracy. But it is Glenn’s beliefs that are relevant here, and, although Glenn has repudiated certain elements of traditional conspiracy analysis he nonetheless accepts a great proportion of that body of thought. It would no doubt be of interest to him that on the ground floor of the same building there’s a large mural of the UN Charter signing ceremony, and one of the people in that mural is Eleanor Roosevelt. It cannot be denied that the Roosevelts are widely considered by conspiracy theorists to have been Illuminati, or at least associated with them. Finally, it should be mentioned  that the building itself looks remarkably like a grand Masonic Lodge.

One last point: As you may recall, Glenn had been working on a theory regarding a Japanese origin for one of the secret societies of Immortals. As it happens, the peace treaty between Japan and the US, the so called “San Francisco Treaty,” was signed right there in the very same building. That’s enough to give a bit of a shiver even to a crusty old skeptic like me. What it would do to Glenn I can only imagine. He could only have seen the San Francisco War Memorial building as an Illuminati focal point.

Keep in mind that Glenn is a man who almost never leaves home. Yet, he undoubtedly did so last week. That itself says volumes about the temptation he was under. (Continued in my next post)

To repeat,


Two temptations

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

To continue: It appears that Glenn may have been lured out by means of two temptations presented simultaneously

Flyss had alread suggested that someone deliberately deceived Glenn by posing as a disciple of the life extension authority Dr. Aubrey de Grey, and claiming to offer stem cell treatment for his diabetes. This in itself would have been a serious temptation for someone in Glenn’s position and state of health. Not only was he facing a real possibility of death from his perennially out-of-control condition, his blood sugar levels seem to have been sufficiently high at the moment so as to potentially cloud his judgment.

But there was a second temptation offered to him as well. It appears that he was provided with information about a previously unrecognized Illuminati focal point and possible link to Japan in the very same city where he hoped to receive life saving treatment.

For a person like Glenn, the possibility of entering further into the solution of the mystery that has entangled his mind for decades might serve as an even greater motivation than the desire to live. Whether that is or is not the case, the combination of the two possibilities could plausibly have proved a temptation too great for any person to resist.
