“Antipollus” again

Friday, March 12th, 2010

OK, Flyss.  I give in (as I always do.) I’ll stop trying to rein you in.

For my part, I’m hunting from the safety of my house.  Yesterday, I stumbled across another occurrence of the name “Antiopollus” in a digitalized photo. (Note for new readers: This is the same name as I found in a famous Lincoln photo.)

The message, “z/r Antipollus,” is contained in the .jpg data of this image:

I think we’re looking at some sort of chemical plant. But what does the message mean? My mind goes off in a thousand directions. – Glenn

[Editor's note: His real name is "Alexandros." We were obscuring it at the time, but no longer need to.]

A third message hidden in a digital photo

Friday, March 12th, 2010

Now this one is extremely strange. The containing photo is comically obscene, and I won’t post it, but the content reads: “Firth of the Fist: meet at Froth of the Foot. Ox Adrenals.” This  message can only be a parody of the instructions contained in the Lincoln photo:”3rd of the blue&black: meet at 0303etc.” And “Ox Adrenals” is an anagram of the actual name that we are deliberately miswriting as “Antipollus.” [Editor's note: We later revealed the true name to be "Alexandros."]

What this appears to imply is that someone both knows about Immortals and feels ready to parody them.  What kind of person could do that?? — Glenn

Black Helicopters

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

So I’m at the dish, and I get out of my car to check out the Black Helicopters I hear coming for me.

Black helicopters are pretty much made on purpose to be hard to see at night, and it’s foggy with no moon.  But I think I see shapes coming up from close to the ground, swirling a little, going to the left sometimes and sometimes to the right but always getting closer.

And closer.  And still closer.

OK, already.  Turn on your bright lights. Land and kidnap me, or shine down your mind rays so I pass out and wake up on the Mothership … But nothing.

Maybe I’ve been kidnapped and my organs operated on for fun, and I can’t remember it. Except I still hear the helicopters and they’re not getting closer. So decide to walk ahead and make it easier for them.

I walk about twenty feet and the helicopter wind blows dust in my eyes. I keep walking.  Now  the helicopters are on both sides of me. And now they’re behind me, and the wind’s still making my eyes itch. Which isn’t right. And the sound is awfully low to the ground, so low I can stomp on it.

Literally. Because the sound is coming from a boombox.

From two ipod boom boxes, about twenty feet apart, playing helicopter sounds in stereo.

OK, that’s more than cool.

Glenn, I’ll email you the mp3 files. Instead of falling all over yourself to apologize for not showing up, just analyze the damn things. And, yes, I’m getting the heck out of here. Even if they’re only flying boom boxes at me instead of real black helicopters, I get the message. — Flyss

P.S. I’m emailing them to Stephen, too.

It’s loaded with messages

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Those mp3 files are loaded with messages in the hex code. Completely in the clear, there are the words, “Ox Adrenals says: I may joke, but these people do not.  They will capture you if you do not flee. I do not mean the man you’ve followed, but the ones who live beneath the ground at the place you’ve followed him to. Go! Go to a safe place, and read the messages I have given you. Stay away, and read to your heart’s content.”

Then there are scattered anagrams, such as “Till in Maui,” and “Circa our sin.” (Respectively, “Illuminati” and “Rosicrucian.”)  Also, the sentences,”These are real.  Fear these,” endlessly repeated, together with “Safer Thee,” an anagram of “Fear these.”

And those are just the messages in the clear.  There are obviously encrypted parts that I haven’t decrypted yet. Back to you as soon as I know more. — Glenn

P.S. Also, I suspect there are physical messages in the devices you found. Would you send them to me?

Like this folded piece of paper?

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

You wrote, “P.S. Also, I suspect there are physical messages in the devices you found. Would you send them to me?”

Yeah, sure. But first I’m going to open this folded piece of paper that says, “READ ME FIRST.” — Flyss

Curious? It says, “Go really, really far away. When you’re safely curled up in bed with your fluffy socks on, go on a scavenger hunt for my messages.  Almost half of what you’ll read is true.  The rest is total BS, but heck, that’s better than the New York Times.”

Encoded in the stereo

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

There’s a very sophisticated encoding process used in those files, one that appears in the difference between the two mp3s: in the stereo, so to speak. The encrypted material consists, it appears, of masses of text, though in several languages.  Those sections I’ve given even cursory examination to so far contain amazing and highly disturbing information, and I’m not sure if I should post all or even any of it here. Let’s discuss privately. — Stephen

Photos in sound files

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

He’s managed to insert photos as well as text in the sound files, via the stereo effect I mentioned earlier. Very sophisticated. I’m impressed.

I’ve inserted one of the extracted photos below.  It’s prefixed by the admonition, “Count them,” and followed by the weird phrase, “I am ill unit.”

What does that mean? — Stephen

One would suppose they are meant to be counted

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

No brilliance here, but one would suppose by the admonition that they are meant to be counted.  Notice the 8 somewhat bright bars in the bottom row, the two slightly brighter in the middle next to two that are much brighter, and and the very bright horizontal pattern across the entire top.  That makes a total of 13 — the number of the Illuminati.  Of these, one is far above the others, two are leaders, and the rest follow. There are also a number of subsidiary members.

Oh, and “I am ill unit” is an anagram of “Illuminati.” — Glenn

The True History of the Illuminati

Friday, March 19th, 2010

This material is a treasure trove.  I’ve only dipped into a few percent of what’s here, and already every idea I’ve had about conspiracies has been turned upside down.

The bottom line: What we theorists suspected has proved entirely true – and entirely false.

Where past conspiracy theorists imagined a cabal of Jewish bankers, there is instead something far more dangerous: a cabal of Immortals who have amassed incredible fortunes over their long lives (and who do not mind shifting suspicion onto Jews and others when it serves them.)  Where Elizabeth Clare Prophet and many others wrote of spiritually advanced beings living in tunnels honeycombing the earth, there is instead a hidden world of Immortals hiding underground: but they are not necessarily spiritually advanced at all.

These Illuminati — for that is actually what they call themselves– are immensely but far from absolutely powerful.  They have no special abilities other than the profound understanding of human psychology long life has given them. They have no mind control rays, but they are highly skilled at controlling us without them.

Here is a vital point: Among their many methods, they support false or partly false conspiracy theories to distract us from the real.  It is they who have kidnapped people and released them with the stigmata of alien abduction.  It is they who have terrorized people with black helicopters, a kind of theatre to distract us from their actual acts of manipulation. They planted the Majestic 12 papers and wrote the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The Illuminati have infiltrated the CIA, the NSA, FEMA, the Trilateral Commission, the mainstream media and every other organ of social power, and they use these powers both to accomplish their goals and to sow misinformation about their goals.  And they’re ruthless: They’ve not hesitated to cause certain people or groups of people to be blamed and victimized, even slaughtered when it serves their purposes. And yet, they mean us well.

This is the true history of the Illuminati.  I will be presenting it in the weeks and months ahead. – Glenn

Truth told by liars

Friday, March 19th, 2010

In the true history of the Illuminati we learn that they are amazing dissemblers. So isn’t the whole content a liars paradox, a house of mirrors? — Stephen

Explanation for the delay

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Sorry, Flyss!  The explanation for our delay is that the hidden messages are jumbled beyond what could possibly be necessary for cryptographic purposes. I rather believe Kate is right, and this is the work of the person we call Laughing One.

One section is written in Navajo transliterated into Sanskrit. Another consists of Romanian language sentences in Romanian script, but reassorted in such a manner as to prefix in a bunch the odd-ranked words of each sentence prior to the even-ranked words of the same sentence. EG., according to this transformation rule, “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog” becomes “The brown jumped the dog quick fox over lazy.”)

In other places, anagrams are substituted for words, words or sentences are written backwards, or the sentences of a section are placed in alphabetical rather than narrative order. It’s thoroughly unreasonable!

But we’re working on it.  – Stephen

Still, one can get a gist

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Despite the difficulties, one can get a gist. Here’s a few choice details I’ve managed to extract from the material so far.

By the 1820s, the Immortal Illuminati had decided establish American world hegemony.  Europe had become too dangerous for them. , with its incessant wars, and also the tightening noose of its post-Napoleonic security structure.  They saw America as a safe haven. In one ringing phrase, it’s described as, “a whole country playing the role of Acropolis.”

But the way they set about achieving this was truly Machiavellian. For example, it appears that they were of two minds about Lincoln’s assassination, but ultimately allowed it to happen because (a) they calculated that without Lincoln, Reconstruction would fail; (b) given a failed Reconstruction, America wouldn’t achieve industrial dominance the early 20th century; (c) by then, Japan would have humiliated Russia in an Asian war; (d) this, together with other steps, would set in motion the Bolshevik Revolution; in turn, this would would (e) lead to a great power rivalry that would (f) marginalize Western Europe, as originally desired.

Though all of this did come to pass, the Immortal Illuminati did not always make the right decisions along the way. For example, in order to manage world events, they identified pressure points of the evolving world system and spent enormous effort controlling them. Some of these were obviously correct (media, banking, communications), but others in hindsight make no sense at all. For example, they spent decades bringing South Africa under their heel in the mistaken belief that it would be a choke point for European/Asian trade.

Another problem they encountered involved managing the great secular jihads of the 20th century that they themselves set in motion — Communism and Nazism.  They repeatedly found events spinning out of their control.

Other interesting points revealed in this material show that some of the goals of the actual Illuminati run counter to conventional conspiracy theory analysis. For example, we now know that they nurtured the rise of Evangelical Christianity in the United States rather than resisted it.  Why? Because they correctly foresaw it as a force for the social cohesion and militarism they wished to inculcate in American society. — Glenn

Where did you get all that?

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Where did you get all that? I’m looking at the same material as you are, and I just don’t see it. — Stephen

One needs the background to interpret it

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

We’re looking at the same material, true, but I’m more tuned in about what to look for. For example, it’s immediately obvious to me that “AJ & AL = CBs” means “Because Andrew Johnson instead of Abraham Lincoln conducted Reconstruction the result was carpetbaggers (eg., bitter friction.) Here, the “&” symbol doesn’t mean “and” as it usually does, but rather is meant to look like a knot, which is a pun for “not.”

Similarly, the little video clip below of an opening eye against large mountains is clearly meant to be read as “Great Awakening.”  It was by putting together such veiled communications that I assembled the various details of my interpretive post. — Glenn

The term “Hafeem”

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

I have noticed the term Hafeem, yes. And that pattern of words you mention.  What do you think it means? — Stephen

Is this a clue?

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Is this some kind of message?

Hidden Message from Immortals

I found it printed on a piece of paper stuck down in a crack in the floor of that place near the factory that I nicknamed “the blockhouse.” I ran over  to check it out after I found the freeway tunnel bricked closed. The blockhouse still had a working door, but the place was abandoned. Lots of computer jacks, but no computers and no debris, except for the one sheet they must not have seen when they cleaned out of there.

Oh, and on the back of the paper, it reads “Her Sister’s Province.” Any guesses what it’s about? It kind of looks like calligraphy to me. — Flyss

Calligraphy drawn in

Friday, May 14th, 2010

It certainly does look calligraphic, but I don’t recognize the script. I’ve traced it below. These symbols must represent words in an Illuminati language. I’ll look through my books. –Glenn

Shifted lines.

Friday, May 14th, 2010

It’s not that, Glenn. Notice the shifted lines in the image? That’s where the message is. This is an offset-embedding. I’m adapting some software to extract it. — Stephen

Beaten to the punch

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Hah, Stephen. You were beaten to the punch by a reader! Check the comments. :-) Flyss

How an offset shift works

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Flyss asked me to explain how an offset shift code works. I hope it isn’t already too obvious to all of you.

You start with a regular pattern, such as vertical lines. Then, you shift parts of the pattern in the shape of the words you want to “encode.” Click on the image below to see an easy to read example.

The hidden letters or pattern are much more difficult to see in the “message” Flyss found, because the background is so uneven. It looks to be a partly mashed radiator, probably a ’70s era air conditioning radiator for a building of between 1500 to 3000 square feet. Also, the shifted segments aren’t English letters, which makes it harder for English readers.

Here’s my attempt to trace the edges of the shifted part. I’m more sure of the horizontals than the verticals.

It looks like Japanese, I think. — Strattera

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.”

Brilliant geeks

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

It amazes me the way action types like me need brilliant geeks to get anywhere. That’s pretty cool decoding, even if we don’t have a ghost of a clue what the decoded message means. Thanks particularly to a cool geeky guest-blogger guy who calls himself “Straterra,” along with our resident uber-math-geek Stephen. All we have to do now is put together “My Sister’s Province” and “Izumo City,” a city that happens to have maybe the oldest Shinto shrine in Japan. I’m sure old geeky Glenn will be the one who figures out what it means. (Or, at least, make something up that sounds good :-)

Meanwhile, I’m off to fry up some other fish.  – Flyss

Province of a sister

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

I don’t know what “my sister’s province” means specifically, but one can’t help but get a sense of a strong female presence in their world. — Kate

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.]

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
