Closing up shop?

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

That fellow I’ve decided to call The Servant has been busy lately. He’s visited pretty much every off-the-map spot I’ve come across.  And, you know what, most of them aren’t off the map any more. You can see them plain as day on Google Earth, too.

I drove by one of the previously secret factories, and it looks the same, except the armed guards are gone. How much do you want to bet everyone important has left and they’re closing up shop?

Best of all, the remote camera I left in place beneath the underpasses showed a bunch of people in orange clothes tramp down to the underground tunnel with all kinds of equipment, like cement mixers, and come marching out about six hours later.  I’m going to wait a bit, and then go check on the tunnel to see if it’s changed any. — Flyss [thread continued in this post)

The Great Migration of the Immortals

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

If there were Immortals living in that tunnel, they’ve either bricked themselves in, or left Dodge. Anyway, the tunnel is sealed shut.  Here are the shots before and after the folks in orange suits visited.

Before:

Underground Immortals

After:

And then there were these ventilation grills I could see through a grate:

Underground Tunnels of the Immortals

Can’t see it any more.  The lights have gone out.

So, I guess that’s that.  The question is, where did they all go? — Flyss

Is this a clue?

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

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

More on the Veteran’s Memorial

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

To finish my thread on the Veteran’s Memorial. I promise that after this I will pull back from my big picture storytelling and return to old, calm, just-the-facts Strattera.

You may remember that we were first led to the memorial by photos of a mirrored room. That room was said to be in the basement of the Veterans War Memorial. We were able to confirm that, but it is now closed, locked, and unmarked. Rather than risk trying to look inside, we sought out an old friend, and obtained obtain photos of it from him. Here is one of them:

He told us that Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Albert Einstein were among the faces pictured, and that he had no idea why they or any of the other photos were placed there. The room appears to have been locked up only about a month ago.

At the same time, statues began to disappear. This niche in the foyer used to have a statue of a man:

The room next to the one with the shrine was wide open and swept mostly clean. But lying on the ground there was this yellowing paper:

It is a little difficult to see in the photo, but the names of US states are engraved on this peculiar structure. And next to the yellowed image there was this symbol, printed on what looked like a postcard, of all things.

Secret Society of Immortals

Flyss once wrote of the “great migration of the immortals.” Have they left San Francisco too? Have they left all the states, or most of them?

Where have they gone? — Straterra

Closing the circle

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

My apologies in advance for this very long (and, no doubt, typographical error-ridden) post. My only excuse is that it closes a rather wide circle, and ends by locating the new home of the secret society of True Immortals.

I would like to open by quoting something Oxadrenals once said to me: “Hafeems are mortals; they just die more slowly than most people.” When I stated in my last post that SENSF is run by mortals alone, I meant to exclude the category of True Immortals, but not that of Hafeem. Let me now explain in detail.

On July 19th, I posted a photograph of a man I claimed in a subsequent post to be a possible Hafeem working as a venture capitalist for life extension projects, including SENSF. The evidence I presented then was slim to non-existent, as several readers noted. I did have additional information, however, regarding the Hafeem I shall call “W.”

As you know, when Glenn set off on his doomed quest, he left two clues for Flyss to find: a photo of a man reflected in the mirror room and anagrams pointing to Aubrey de Grey. What I did not mention is that a week after Glenn’s death the man who’d provided those clues contacted us. To be more precise, he contacted Oxadrenals. His motivation was perhaps double: Remorse for what had happened to Glenn, and increasing fear for his own safety.

To explain his fear, I must give a slight bit of background for those who have not followed this blog closely: Oxadrenals has several times (most recently, yesterday) noted that the great society of Immortal Illuminati has no love for him and his organization of Hafeems. In recent months, that secret society has departed many of  its longstanding facilities (as described here and here.) Though we have not known for certain where they departed to, we have been in possession of clues that point toward, among other places, Santa Clara County, California.

And that is also where the SENS foundation is.

W had recently begun to sense the presence of True Immortals near his own home town. It was something of an intuition, the suffocating sensation of  a great and secretive force coming closer and growing in strength. Up until then, he’d lived as an isolated Hafeem, aware of Oxadrenal’s group, but unwilling to join. He has now joined Oxadrenals, and is in hiding.

Once he was safely out of harms way, I posted his photo, as already described, and stated that he was a Hafeem. My purpose was to test whether True Immortals are reading this blog. (This occurred before we stumbled upon another way to test that question.) The fact that no secret searches were made of his house, no questions asked at the places he frequented or the foundations to which he contributed, adds additional confirmation that our blog is not known to True Immortals, and, in consequence, that SENSF itself is not infiltrated by them.

It does appear, however, that more than one Hafeem is involved. There is the man we have been speaking about in this post, and at least one other. This only makes sense, for Hafeems, no less than us, have a vital stake in life extension.

And it also appears that we may know where the True Immortals have relocated to: Santa Clara County.

Admittedly, this raises as many questions as it answers.  – Stephen
