The Art and Aesthetics of Les Drones
Post by Quincy on May 12th, 2009, 01:41am

This thread is a small corner for those wishing to express their love and admiration for the Art they see in the drones be it the Craft or The LAP. Posters may create their own renditions, not as an one upsmanship, or history of prior influences buth rather as an extension of those qualities they see inspire them, as it was , a unique event. Even Poetry is acceptable and welcome, but not to detract or mock,, as we have ample quantities of that already.
It did after all, make for an interestinj journry for all.

Enjoy

Thats nice, Rdilla , but we want to see YOURs and others, work, after all, I want to see the manifestation of inspiration take its many forms and directions, the endless possibilities, you know.... I thought you could draw being on cgi forums. do something write a ballad a poem, get a tatoo, do stick figures, we don't care,.....after all the work I did worrying bout your feelings..

besides..which essentially are..you dont care, you love them no matter what..like unrequitted love..Jeez. Good luck.

Here's your chances..We all know Josh and Crew and everybdy on the Foxtree must be "geniuses" according to Arlington, ET,..Write them, and ask them for more..see my signature? Hey I want more TSCC.. I did my part, Do yours.

Secondly, WTF do I wanna jump over to a site that may have malicious code?
Until they issue an explanation what happened, and give people an all clear..I don't recommend anyone going... Took me forever to clean the crap last night. I should have known better.


There are precedents everywhere Mask, and I mean eaverywhere..But We want to see something new from fans like yourself...Otherwise it becomes a one trick pony show.
The first one is from matrix.the rest..and there tons more..from here there ..before Isaac.

Das drones are old and getting older along with a lot of this Illustrator stuff. Enough of the planets setting on some alien horizon and landed craft on their tippy toes casting shadows. Old, old, old ….. tongue
Plenty of precedent as already mentioned by the resourceful Ms. Weaver. The drones and Isaac just happened to coincide with increased gullibility for some reason. rolleyes

None of this stuff represents an evolutionary beginning for the Drone or LAP designs and that is obvious. As I said before, there is no precedent for the designs. The Idea that Hollywood and in fact Bollywood was in envolved was expressed from the beginning and the Bollywood connection may have had some interest.

Hi Sys.
What's the time frame of these images especially ones with undeniable drone/Isaac graphics?
Are they works that were influenced by or were they the inspiration?
Thanks

Re: The Art and Aesthetics of Les Drones
Post by Quincy on May 16th, 2009, 1:03pm

Ahh good question..The first one is from 1960s I believe, from popular mechanics..actual military experiment..
The Android pix like the one Bluetech, a DJ based in Oregon, was alleged to have been done within a day of Isaacs release on c2C June 28, 2007 while Jones was in Japan, on the dance floor, amazing isnt it..I knew he was fast but not that fast.Actuall when it is 28th in Japan, its actually 27th here , time zone thing, so he he had heard he said, not seen, (but lets say he did), worked out the brushes and tweak, or knew right where to get them. He was in Japan since the 21 working on the movie the Illuminated.
Yet, It had taken him some time to do the others called Bass Nectar in his Concept Art renderings.., according to a commentary, yet this was like a bolt of lightening..instant..
Inspiration is awsome isn't it? smiley
He also did that summer, a tour which covered the DNA lounge and Vets Hall in SF and Santa Cruz, our playground, and Bellingham, where dell is at, as well as Oregon.
Its much like those pilgrimmages to Mecca or Bethleham. One is bound to pick up something along the way.
I feel like I am going to speak in tongues at any second just thinking about it. goosebumps even..That we may have a Saint walking in our midst.
Sadly, he hasn't used the brushes since..But his others show a strong similarity, Music DJ based art. No lack of musicians in this saga ..
But I digress

The other that looks like a flying prototype of the pig is Star TReks long time illustrator and prop designer, frank sternbach..thats 1980s art..He and Okuda worked together . Frank said in an email to , that it did look similar like his borg panel art, with the green nodes, to his, but that people are always borrowing like that, not much one can do. All Okuda told me , he was not involved in the hoax. Sid miers of blade runners fame liked the arabesque style very very much, but said politely..the story was crap. That should stroke Somebodies ego very well We of Course know Matrix..another warners design also pre 2000.
Then the laptops..AW, by far the most inspired, they took one look, and by October had imprinted their design , approved by Dell, on the Lap at the manufacturing plants assembly line, their packing materials, etc, an International contest with a roswell story line and alien letters..by October..It was prob the one thing that saved the SCC terminators meme getting exposure as the writers strike kicked in, but not affecting AW.. It was all supposed to be simultaneous.
But Again I digress..I have to get some more "inspired work"..like the 2007 July video, as well as the Siggraph thing also in July..
We had a rash of conversions, amongst people who all worked together in one form or another..
but, really..not with anyone else much..atually.
I did buy at considerable expense..that laptop that just happened to have a Quanta Bios date of March 2007.
I may have a collectors item actually, boxes and all...it has that video card Nvidia that overheats..Its worked fine for me so far.
And I love it..Kudos AW. Warners made a good choice to use them . They and gamemakers have done same with superman, WOW, and many other to enhance their revenue streams. Its Standard operating procedure.

I saw HPOs latest Brown Pig, very very well done I might add..Its nice to know when we order they are making them in colors.now..Designer pigs. You know they have pigs, rabbits and fish that glow now! True..
So far we have Isaac Black, Leviathan Green, and HPO Brown..

Those dutch are something else with paint and colors.
They have a gift! But all this for free? I happen to know they are exceptional shrewd businesspeople too..
Remember how far almost Jan Blai flew that kite!
I just don't know why he and his company do not just come out and sell models like toy makers and modellers do for all the action figures all the time...That would be a good revenue stream..for themselves..after all, no one owns the design do they? they are from outer space, Isaac said so wink The Warners people can't do anything right?

User Image
I think maybe HPO has his finger in the dike for other reasons smiley
I would love to see his display he said he was going to use at the trade show he mentioned for his/the company.
He mentioned that last year. He never commented how it went, or where it was at, or we could see it on display. Does the company do prop designs for studios too?. It doesn't hurt to know that.
I know they must have been thrilled smiley as we are of him .
So I hope he can enlighten us.
We are so excited for him.

That captures the essence of this thing. If we can miniaturize the PI's with those expressions on their faces, we can have an entire game collection, and a few lookalike believers added , well, gee we can even market a chess set after this!
Say remember Sylvia, did you know her last name is really shoemaker...maybe Joe schumacher was like a european cousin or something. I never was into geneology, not many of my ancestors ever sent me a nickel even while alive. so..what the heck.

Sid was great in that stuff tracing origins, I remember him commenting on HPOs duplication of the colors and letters exactly.
amazing. HPO is a true artist.. smiley you find them usually in counterfeiting art also. Art is art .Fabulous stuff there too.
If HPO is smart he can make a killing, as they won't come foward, thats assuming he wasn't part of the setup to begin with.
Look what he can get..just for the teeny stuff.

I'd like to see HPO's latest classic color ones rendered with some film grain or printed then phographed with film then scanned. Throw in a few strands of hair or dust for good measure. The CGI stuff is nice and all but I want to see what it looks like when going for the Isaac image effects.
Of course, these could be physical real models for all I know. They still lack that certain something. Less contrast vs. Isaac's for one. I wonder if the Isaac images were that good it would have been less believable?

If I recall Isaacs had surrounding rings without support, allegedly by rigid spatial spatial forces even when off. a rather nagging problem,so they must have been powered on, or something to that effect. This look like they have the support in, but dont seem to be floating.
.

HPO responded to an explanation back july 2007 at OM for that using same reasoning to point out the fallacy with that.

Hi, yes I've red that, but that's why I have said in the (off position) because when the (rim) parts are next to the object on the ground the object isn't collapsing under it's own weight.

I hope he doent think I was being hard with him here, its a great opportunity to get the exposure .But it needs support from the people clammoring for it..and they have been strangely silent on the matter, given that they were familiar with scenarios like that and other than OMF and LMH and DRT, no one else gave a squat..to put it bluntly. rolleyes
I think he mentioned once he was worried about people think DRT was getting the money. That didn't sound right after all, they don't own it as far as we know.

So lets see if he shows us the trade show pics..
that will be the real treat.

It also looks like they figured out a way to integrate regular old nuts and bolts into the software, which is really smart, especially with sunspot activity picking up. They'd have all sorts of warranty headaches if people were driving along and something caused the car's Isaac field to collapse, and engine parts spilled out all over the highway.

I see they cleverly labeled the thing as "3D Animation." I'll just bet Saladfingers is in on this!

[color=Yellow]It's been a long time since I said anything on here. Life has gone on in my absence. Everyone should appreciate the simplification that has just occurred to this site. I got a little sick of all the friggin loading my site did everytime I showed it to someone (and I'm on DSL, so I can't imagine what you guys on modems thought). I'm going to keep it simple from now on. I may update the design from time to time, but I think just enough navigation to get around is appropriate for the time being. I would like to get back to some more art before I die.
I still work at a Buzz Interactive, a web design firm in Toronto, as Lead Designer. I'm still trying to peddle my game proposal to anyone that will listen, and I'm still up until 3-4 AM playing video games (currently Unreal Tournament, Quake 3 Arena, and Descent 3).

I probably won't be updating this chatty bit as much as I did in the past when I had it here, I would really like to get back to doing more of my own personal work. Drop me a line if you have any questions about any of the work contained in my gallery. I have stopped accepting freelance web work, so please direct any work-related correspondence to

Do you think they (them, it, he, she, etc.) actually believe that 14,000 year BS or is it just BS squared or other form of S?

I would have expected more evolution of the art forms after that many years. Maybe they are well beyond their Renaissance period and things are progressing more slowly now. undecided It would be difficult to move these drone off a dealers lot with this years model not much different then the last 14K years. Heck, they don't show if they are 2 seaters or 4, 4 door or hatchbacks.

Here is a blurb..how Adil went to amsterdam with his girl friend..and he got the the idea.

Well, the FRENCH wants everyone in the world to drive this in 2037. The designer, ADIL BENWADIH came up with the design after a trip to AMSTREDAM with his former girlfriend STELLA. The story goes, upon arrival at the hotel he had booked in Amsterdam while in GAY PARIS(proun. PAREE), ADIL picks up some choice KUSHUNPENG from the cafe across the street from where he and STELLA is staying.

It is said that STELLA later robbed ADIL of his choice KUSHUNPENG while he was taking a shower in his room and ran out on him. He then went to get some more from the previous cafe. He started doodling and came up with the ‘NERVASTELLA’; deriving from him shouting, ‘Nerve of STELLLLAAA‘ to steal my KUSHUNPENG as he stepped out of the bathroom.

After severaal attempts to understand Woy, I finally got a clear answer as to what to expect from the work he is doing.

my program will only decode data that was encoded by my program in the first place
my program will not decode the LAP
my program will hopefully encode large amounts of data into very small files
my program hopes to prove that the Precept that the Lap COULD POSSIBLY CONTAIN a lot more data



Thank You!
I thought so..smiley
I ran across these others..
http://www.miliki.net/products/performance.php
or in the incredible claims ones here..
http://www.datacompression.info/IncredibleClaims.shtml
I hope you are succesful
and make a lot of money
though that not your goal I know.
It really will help mankind.
Perhaps there is another similar prg
that can say that it possibly contains more .
would be good to know.
there is more than one.

Thank so much

so no answers there..

More importantly he tells me that he did not put the color figures.. into the LAP..
When others were looking for the 45mb file..Ninken had a 20mb file which was black and white. What it seems he did was desaturate and strip the data..rendering it uselss actually. Thats why after I tried reduplicating no figures would surface like woys. So apologies to woy..for thinking he tampered..But the figures were from old games. I'm not going there for now as I already mentioned the Sin games to steamvalve and mumbo Jumbo gamemakers of EU some time ago. Once hosted by Tony Sova Webmaster. The other person at the Todd site..listed was Whane the whip..who is an seo webdeveloper in orange county ca..he makes RPG and flash games. http://pbbg.wikidot.com/


still..
But if we take the original,,one page at a time..per woys instruction..and fiddle with hues and stauration..gamma whatever..then the patterns should come out.

The Drones will live on as a very expensive joke
that an army of sock puppets for 2 years chanting wow and uuuu
and ahhh and sticking their fingers in their throats
to regurgitate what the just uttered could never revive.
the I am what Iam that came before me. designed chimera should be protected
in my opinion, just the way we protect endangered or
near extinct species.
The least we can do is keep the memory alive as we should for the good joke it still is , and especially to honor all those who remain mesmorized and

Hi Masker, smiley

I assure you I’ve never bade farewell (fond or otherwise kiss) to the Drones or the forums (although I may have been given vacations from a couple but that’s usually out of my hands…..)

When you say you’ve never said ‘bye bye’ does that mean that you are denying that you’re a reincarnation of an earlier participant in the Drone discussions? Or do you simply mean that as you departed of your own accord (?) and never said ‘bye bye’ that you’re not classifying yourself as such?

Seeing as this is an image thread the following has been one of my favourites for a while now..... wink

Obviously I can’t speak for anyone except myself but I’m not concerned in the slightest!! grin

I do find it conflicting that you say things that directly imply you’re new to the Drones, things like:

Quote:
“In the short time I have delt [sic] with this Drone mess”

“So is this then the end to the,IMO, wonderful Drone Drama. In its heyday it must have been a lot of fun.”
“Being a beginner at all this”

“Since I am a late comer to this thread is the idea that Lev is Hollywood connected being suggested or is this idea just sarcasm?.”




Yet you also say things such as the following which also directly implies prior knowledge of some of the ‘players’ on the forums:

Quote:
“I thought it was generally accepted that Lev was just a hoaxer who did a few good bits and just kept showing up from site to site.”

“Tomi you know............”

“Admiral, I don't believe you will find that Von Stern is involved in any hoaxing. He seems to be more of a hanger on like so many others. He also is volatile and has exploded on numerous occasions about his belief in the validity of the Drones. I don't believe he would have the imagination to contribute to a hoax of this complexity. The one who would is of course Kris.”


Then posts which imply prior knowledge of the Drones and the forums, (*Specifically stated):

Quote:
"As I said before, there is no precedent for the designs”

“Not really. Many listen to what is said on this thread.”

“It is brought up again because no one has matched the quality of the originals not even the abysmal Hollywood attempts”

“I forgot to add Dr. Dil my thought comes from the very beginning of the Drones. You have at least two here that love to sift through the early posts. It is from those early posts that I got the Idea long ago.*I am not a novice to the Drone Saga, just the saga of this thread.”


Re: *Specifically stated” – If you’re new to the thread how did you know about Von Stern?

Then of course there’s the comments that imply ‘secret’ knowledge:

Quote:

“The first Drone on the internet was also the work of a father (engineer) and a son (CG) in my opinion. It took off from there and grew and grew. Hollywood had not one thing to do with it. This is true of most UFO junk. LMH, well......................”

“I believe a father son team of engineer and artist produced the original drones and it took off from there. Copycats followed maybe even Hollywood TV.”

“Those who say it is a hoax maybe right, but those who say it is over are wrong.”


But like I allude to it’s really of entirely no consequence to me personally, so conflicting comments, yes.

But am I bothered by it, certainly not.

And, “Concern” couldn’t be further from the truth even if Isaac himself told you it was so!! kiss

Cheers. laugh

Truespace is an excellent program, but was done a disservice when Microsoft acquired it. Also it has no built in renderer. If you can stand the interface of Blender try to learn it. It continues to evolve and has a new interface coming.

Hi Klat I hope you’re feeling better, smiley

From what I could find out from a *very* quick and cursory read was that it was created a few of days ago on the 30th March, then updated on the 31st March and the 1st April (as Sidd mentioned grin). All updates so far appear to be by OTF so it looks like you were very quick to notice the wiki had been created, the following screen-capture is from a couple of hours ago and the Google cache shows the 2nd April as the last cache which was probably the first (bot)crawl after the last update:

User Image


And to answer your other question, from my wholly unlearned perspective I personally opine that it could be considered intellectually dishonest to create such a wiki with no mention of DroneHoax.com!! (although admittedly I’m a little biased!! laugh)

Only joking of course and the truth is I genuinely don’t care either way. In fact the wiki page you linked to is the first time I’ve even thought about (never mind visited) the site for at least a couple of months, of course it doesn’t help that I’m banned for life and even though it never stopped me checking it out in the past I suspect that this is a contributory factor as to why I stopped checking (and indeed caring) it at all.

I agree it’s a step forward as admitting you’ve got a problem is supposedly half the battle….. laugh

I will however add that I’m both shocked and stunned(!) at the “Current Status” of the Drone case you posted as it puts me in a bit of a quandary, mainly because I don’t know which aspect stuns me more, i.e.

Joking aside though I do actually agree with what you wrote as even if we’re not all on *quite* the same page yet at it least seems we’re all reading from the same book.

This business of the DRT is neither here nor there for me. I still like the saga from its totally crazy side and the design of the Drones. The BB Drone is the best of the lot. If there could possibly be any truth to the Drones, those who know about it would have long ago gone quite. The subject becomes weaker and weaker which of course I like. I wonder what the DRT has left to do if anything!

Hi,
Seems like a long way back on the road when I made that discovery, but it seems that Tripatourium.com was hosted through VC's early website.

Doing a whois on Tripatourium brings me to this Registrant:
High Falootin Technology Corp

Which leads to this enigmatic group:
http://sigmaalphabeta.org/

But that was so long ago.... memory fades as you figure out that rred is Sabastian Sine, who stopped his very reasoned discourse of investigating the drone saga about Sept 08, to appear as collaborator with Elijah.

Any insights or to

Kat your drone art creations is Brilliant stuff (with the farm and Lev.. ) grin

Re your question, "Are all these guys plagiarists and little league opportunists who need to flock to the forums for UFO's and other fringe beliefs to get their jollies?"

I'm not the brightest bulb either, but with enough hunting and insights from other good minds out there, it seems to narrow down to a few possibilites.

Theories:

A. A clandestine MIC related group released real information along with a cover story, (the drone witnesses & sightings).

B. A small group was formed with the intent of creating a living art (drone saga) melded into reality.

I believe Virgil Crow is a production, not a person. The IA site is a production.

This is the heavy end of what all of these artists are trying to generate in consciousness raising:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_J._Carroll

I think there had to be artists involved in this, but what ever group did it, it was a labor of love, it was not a work for hire by a group of studio executives. There was painstaking exactness in everything executed. That took committment for a cause more than money? Without fame. Why?

I thought the truth of the Drones had been found. A very simple truth of hoaxes and fakes. The reasons were to hoax and fake the whole subject and nothing more.

All but the obedience part. smiley
Since this is the art thread, I finally had to spring for some new digital camera equpment - Panasonic GF1, pancake lens, zoom and electronic viewfinder. Time to retire the old Nikon CoolPix 1st or 2nd generarion. Sadly my old film SLR gear goes next. I wanted something more portable and moved away from the full digital SLR's.
Just doing my part to help the economy and, of course, always be ready to snap a photo or video of a drone or 2. I did not want any of those camera types associated with any past drone images. Bad Karma and all. grin grin rolleyes

144,000 is just as good as any other number someone pulls out of their bag of wares. What do people have against good old irrational or other random numbers?

I have already been judged and have accepted it because I know something about all this that you do not know. For instance a completely different photo of the Birmingham/Georgia Drone (no pole) was sent to another UFO/talk site before LMH. Now until now no one new this nor do they know the response it provoked. As I hear you say: "who cares", I have to laugh at the unknown complexity of this whole affair.

The significance of this should be understandable even to your mate OTF. A little more, it was quite close to a car and could be compared in size. Even if a fake, it contained information of a kind.

Have you considered this is the bleating of a wounded ego seeking solace in pretending to know that that is not known, you should. We should all, from my experience, be afraid.

Don't you truly think that to know one (reptile) you must some how be one or at least have a close experience of one. Maybe, in your case, it is just a close empathy toward an ego in its death throws over a hoax. Someone trying so hard to be an accepted artist capable of art that conveys the reality of things and being in the full realization that this is not the case.

To know the reptilian personality as applied to a human, you do consider me a human, one has to think of the many things this would imply. A complex judgment needs first to be made and this could mean that one looks reptilian or acts reptilian or both. This reptilian personality must derive from observation of the actual species or consideration of human myth. You alone could convey this meaning in regard to me. It would be less than a kindness to do so, but the pleasures I have seen generated here are of a nature that from old can sustain a type.

Now in considering the animal called a reptile, it eats things sometimes referred to as vermin, thus doing a service. Since I have never intended to preform a service in this saga, I must be more of the mythical reptile. This type must, by its nature, wait until the purpose is close to act.

I think the frustrated incompetent artist trying to attach to the drone saga and becoming caught up in the drama is the best scenario in relating to me and you who post here should think the same. It is your best game and gives me freedom as long as I remain within the rules.

As I learned from forums like this, the alien perspective must not always be the same perspective as the human's perspective.
But that observation of the miniature really makes me think. Could it be, that Billy Meier lied? He never was visited by Nordics, but by people from Lilliput! shocked

The thumper drone without thumper resembles the same colour as the Perez-drone. But he dared to take a try on the Big Basin thingy.

But maybe you wanted to show me the way to the "Thumper drone, which has lost it's thumper, so that it must be called Thumper-drone-without-thumper now" to find the pics, which were made from the inside of a car?

I am old so I understand old ways of faking photos along with new. Most old UFO photos are fake (IMO) except for a few that show a type of reality that would have been very hard to fake at the time. Now I do not know if you care about what I said and do not care. The Drone I show in this work is just an early example of an idea of a Drone and yes it was used with the stand in the field and again who cares. It has nothing to do with the Drone photo sent into a well known site. This photo was completely ignored and predated any Drone near a pole of any kind. Does this matter, no. It just shows the confusion in all this that lies just below the surface of this hoax and one of the several things I know of. It does not change any thing from being a fake. Billy Meier produced fakes and so were the Gulf Breeze Polaroids fake. As I said, some of the 1950 photos are strange to say the least.

I hope you do not take me serious in any of this because to me the fewer know and have any faith the better. I am sure you can understand what I mean. The art (?) I post from here on is just illustration and things the Drones seem to inspire. If they are not wanted, then by all means let the moderator or whomever delete them.

Don't always put question marks behind the word art, when you are referring to your own works. It IS art and it speaks for itself.

If you feel bad vibrations it is only for your dark "I know more than anybody"-attitude. But nobody is going to ban you for this.

Be the artist you are, be the human you are, tell simply, what you think to know - and we are a sound community without problems.

Since we don't have any names for your works, it is difficult to describe. I liked that one, which looks as if it is flying through lightnings most. (It was posted twice here, but it has no title as far as I remember.)

Do you have any other pieces or are you solely contributing to the drones? Would be interesting to compare it to other themes.

known to reach altitudes of several hundred feet in seconds after being released by overheated and exploding automobile engines at near speed of sound velocity. As if by Magik , they (without aid of a remote device mind you) follow unseen gravitational lines of force and proceed to return to back to the ground...
No doubt, Icarus you have a keen eye for automotive parts and to capture such a rare moment in space and time, a glimpse into all too human technology and finally.. to re render for our enjoyment and savoring is indeed a testament to your skill and commitment to Art and the human experience..

But..You do worry me a tad though..Icarus


And , if I may be so bold as to go further to underscore the very well taken point by Mr.Sidd,
Icarus you should take to heart the words of the Nagual Artist/musiciana themselves which put there for us in the preceding page referencing the Contact Album cover and Flying Cathedrals

from Cathedral of Flyers, Label: ParaLucid, Released: Nov 2009, Artwork: Dravidian A. Ageran www.dasnachtmahrprojekt.de SSome words about Nagual Art We do not exist to entertain you! We are telling stories. *** We do not give any concerts in front of human audiences. Never! *** How people look like is very unimportant. *** Generally, we are not interested to get in touch with any Castaneda freaks, lucid dreamers, warriors, spiritual searchers and so on... *** You can listen to our music. And you can listen to our music... If you really(!) know what we mean then you know why we share our music and you are very welcome to enter the path and dream with us! But we ask you to not contact us. We are the hidden voyager and will meet us anyway... www.nagualart.de http

Icarus..Release, nay..Unleash that Shaman imbued and creative art ..to blazes with the sounds of all too often fickled audiences!..To Blazes I say!
Take care of your senses my friend..and I assure you those sounds will take care of themselves.!

Im sure Droneonline, oh if he were here ..miss that brilliant multifaceted lad.. familiar with the musiK and art field as well a others here with their own musik and art talents would agree. And if they don't..guess what?..I dont care!! grin

Because..Im free, unleashed and unbound, unlike others trapped in the same conventional train of thought and behaviour like so much mayo in a hermetically sealed jar. .And i'm not even an artist! ...

Hi Mr.Sidd..commercial break? I thought thats what your post was the musicians/artists groups, a commercial..along with I merely extracted what I thought relevant to the issue of art. After all I did create this thread with art ..drone art in mind..such a subjective thing..and know exactly what I need to put into it.
If you want to include your humor as drone humour s an art...well by all means break your little heart out.
If you want to give Mr. Icarus encouragement...I don't think he needs much of that having been here for such a lonnnnng time...perhaps a slight push..psychtherapy..well thats something else..beyond the scope of this thread or my ability....but i'm sure you can create a thread just for that too, after all madness has its place in art too and you are a real funny guy.

As is well known..its not a unique design..but is worth of commentary..thats it..like the label on an Andy Warhole Campbell soup can. But other artists Like Sid like the Aesthetics oand Arabesque designs..something probably worth looking at and appreciating..ven the art of forging old documents..the verassimiltude..something all hoaxers strive for..more than the Craft itself..of which I think we have probably dozens if not hundreds by Lev and his group..already.

Nice to see you too..
Have a nice day!

Perhaps before you come out of the closet Icarus into someone elses closet to show them what you have..and have several people with secrets..make somebody sign an NDA unless you have signed one already. I hear its suicide to violate those isn't it..career wise anyway, and collectively if others worked various aspects of the project.. But maybe thats worth it to lose so you can tell that that terrible secret and show what a good artist you are..Something already known for quite some time..even if you are not connected with any group or enterprise..
Like anything else Sid, thank you for the kind words and advice.., But.. thats just your opinion. grin

The only thing I can agree with you at this point, ignoring the mickey mouse comment....is use of background clouds for the ambience which go hand in hand with the other pictures we have seen on music albums like the ones from the groups mentioneed earler be it Dopedrone or Naguar or some of these works....
I always liked that..

From the website of Nic Poussain and other artists..

In Mexican and A culture, death i celebrated a something to be acknowledged..a transition..to be embraced with the underatnding we can honor those who went on, and even invite them back for a few days and commune with us and also reminded to go back and move on. That known a day of the dead, that begin almot concurrently with our Halloween here in the state and elsewhere, where it something not to be thought of at all..something quite final and to be avoided...
And if you see or hear someone or something in the dark..it to be feared..so we have our glowing eyes in the wood our Mib, et.
I wonder how thee two will mesh as we become more global..what will that spawn.. The imagery of ufology I think will a death transforms u..transform that..much the same way the early religion clashed gave way to something else..famiilar but not quite the same.
that theme i found by sheer accident when I was following ta blog which poted that excellent treatment of memes by artist groups..The author of that blog wa Ty Brown..(Noooo I.m not going there) but to the respndent..which lited hi name as
ET in Arcadium ego
in a French website..
of artists that delved into the mytery of Arcadia..the yearning for the pastoral good old days..much like we see in ufology and jut about any human endeavour

Just a Valle and John keel and others like Sparks. and Lev came to think of the ufo phenomenon a from forces predating man..that co exist with us.
so im placing the subsequent treatment i found by wiki on the matter, and in that context perhaps gain a better undersatanding of what the artist here wa trying to do, except..that the other aspect of the art the letters , and diagrams, those loops , the sigiltry, all seemed for some to work together. In fact, Iaac inisted on it. from the Man woman birth to be..and as here alluions directly or indirectly......death....ever preent..whether by stray bullet..or killed violently by the system. or war...and several slugs added to boot....all neatly put together..

Lev dropped a skull in....nice skul ..prettty skull..may mean different thing to different people..to some mayan..to some satanic...to some Pirate of the Caribean..to me a nice pen and pencil holder..who knows,

I see nowhere I'm saying anything other than that. Not trying to be contrary with you..please understand..that.. no..looking at how lev ..then attos similar work with Egyptian symbology in videos..and past statements....it easier to understand where they are coming from..with their art..and going to with them.
Here skulls are also utlilized
The same stylized art like Levs which no doubt was sent to Atto, who then says it was from Dan Sheehan, a lawyer who claims to have seen alien craft and writing,
Atto agreed with the understanding that he would meet some upper level dark figure ..But alas..that was not to be when the problem of potential litigation crept in.

This wa no real alien artifact copy..no..it was a mish mash of aurebesh from star wars and our drone, as well as litlle pieces from warcraft that an ATS poster analyzed..

and those litlle side skulls exchanging blood to become human hybrid..weird sht...no doubt..but it was an attempt to decieve..the ufo community..what better place to put it..then OMF.those folx will believe anything...right Atto?makes you wonder what the agenda is when this would hurt not help. What are you all thinking of..?
Sure wouldn't fly here or at ATS
still nice to look at it..like most eye candy..
. cool grin

To his credit..Atto has since last year.. changed his site..all those great posts of mine gone with the wind..and renounced any involvement with the drone drama..Got religion the boy did...a new leaf!! but....old habits are hard to break..

in February he went back to the Caret site..Todds site..and started commenting on the importance of it all..and how the dominator culture will not permit this to come out in the open..

Hi Sys,

Well, mostly I was just being flippant because Et in Arcadia Ego figures so strongly in the rabbit hole surrounding the mystery of Rennes-le-Château as does the Priory de Sion.

Now this is a rabbit hole mystery that has consumed peoples lives, even troops of Nazi's were deployed into "Arcadia", and killed a great number of local people to find the "holy Grail".

So.. since you mentioned it ..... and since this is probably the greatest longest running mystery of all, I had to bring it up.

Dan Brown hijacked the story and spread it into mainstream with his book The Da Vinci Code. Funny how here we are, just like the early investigators who wrote the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, chasing artists. Only our artists are still alive..

Actually I had brought it up earlier when I noted that I believe the actual siteings found are the basis of a pentacle. Well, this was the case years ago too. The main postitions within the Holy Grail mystery were placed in a geographical placement that formed a pentacle. That is where I first learned of this practice.

Atto let me join that site so I could dig through your work during my process of discovery and then it disappeared as you say. A great resource it was too.
And art following life or life following art.. the female scientist in Sara Conners mystery.... amazing coincidence as well....... you know what I mean here I think smiley Cheers.

I mentiond at ATS there was a moorph game Jade dynasty made in china and released in U may 2007..but in China earlier..Its quite a beautiful game( and expensive to play) dealing with virtual communities and characters in mythological based setting.
It was surprising to see similar imagery during combat ..the lap nodes and octagonals..which all resembled the fenhui dials of old as well.
in one serves a a power source on my pet called a stonus..it rotates and jut like one would imagine a power source to do.
we cant leave out the rest of the drone art and discuss only the aesthetics of the crafts ..(spelled by isac like that if i recall..both in narrayive and photos) and leave out the rest of the team..Jut like film artist Whedon draws heavily from the Asians and Alienware and Warners.. drawing freely from the hoaxers...who knows maybe they are all joined at the hip..call it cultural form of osmosis..with by product being adaption..reconfiguraton..of the same..
old faces with new idea or old ideas with new faces..
I actually enjoy this game..i even ride. a Giant Panda! and Dragon!..

I thought you might enjoy this "avante guarde" performance

Disinformation vs The Stella Maris Drone Orchestra, USURP and Raagnagrok. Disinformation "National Grid" - electromagnetic sound installation, live in The Foundry sub-basement, London, Oct 2005. Filmed in almost total darkness, therefore headphones recommended.

Disinformation's "National Grid" was first published and performed in 1996, and first exhibited at London's (now closed) Museum of Installation gallery in 1997, with the opening night being attended by Auto-Destructive Art pioneer and veteran anti-nuclear activist Gustav Metzger. A partial history of "National Grid" and video of its concert version can be found at...



Performed at the London foundry in 2005. Don't look for drone craft..think of the process..the ethos that converged in someones collective hive mindset to create it.

I came across it at Strangeattractor.co.uk with Mark Pilkington who in his film/book , one of many ,Mirage Men co authored with John Lun..Forgot how to spell it cheesy.. came to the amazing conclusion that the Yanks.that's us..have been using ufos as a psyop tool against our enemies..hmm..is that an original concept?
I say us as we are the establishment zombie consumers..and they are the Gremlins trying to rewire and effectuate change whilst retooling our plane in mid flight.

Still the Stange atrractor Team..e gives us great art..film..performances at the Green Man Festival august 2007 with Dr.Graham Harvey who has co authored with Dr. Karen Ralls to bring us some great stuff in the hermetic quest arena

As I said early on, the uniqueness of the original Drone design would inspire and so it has. The early nay sayers sought to squash the Drones before, as designs, they could inspire and mutate into something very different. The Drones did not need to be alien devices in the sky for they were devices of imagination in some peoples minds. This may continue for a while, but will fade. Their influence is planted on the net though and that is an accomplishment. If they die now, someone in the future will resurrect them at least as a springboard for design. Were any of them alien, who really knows. I have searched the internet for their images and they are taking root nicely. This is enough for now.

I read them in sequence, as they were published way back when, and the later ones were some of the most challenging and rewarding reading I have ever done. Judge them on what you find inside, not on what you might think of their origins or method of delivery. I very nearly missed out on them because of such a bias.

Pleasure Domes Myths and Lore revisited by El Systema Configurado
The race for habitable caves
First the a brief preface.
In my opinion what followed after the Drone, merits worthiness in this most sacred and hallowed thread of the Drone. Not merely the visual art, but the literary pool from which the story, even in its second incarnation draws from.
"Titan. Its name comes from Xanadu, the legendary palace described in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem Kubla Khan.
The feature was first identified in 1994 by astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope at infrared wavelengths, and has recently been imaged in more detail by the Cassini space probe. Xanadu is about the size of Australia. Preliminary observations indicate that Xanadu is a plateau-like region of highly reflective water ice, contrasting somewhat with the darker lower regions. These in turn seem to contrast quite sharply with the very dark maria, which were once believed to be seas of liquid hydrocarbons, but are now thought to be plains.

Scientists are also investigating the boundary between Xanadu and Shangri-la, a dark region to the west. The shape of the boundary suggests that the dark material embays the bright terrain.

Radar images taken by Cassini have revealed dunes, hills, rivers and valleys present on Xanadu. The features are likely carved in ice, rather than solid ground, by liquid methane or ethane.
Teds Dialectic


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kubla_Khan

Now Coleridge is a an entirely different matter..I find it intriguing that a drug addction such as by an opiate can induce a state that helped produce one of the monumental works in the English language.
Kubla Khan[1] is a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, completed in 1797 and published in Christabel, Kubla Khan, and the Pains of Sleep in 1816. According to Coleridge's Preface to Kubla Khan, the poem was composed one night after he experienced an opium influenced dream after reading a work describing the Tartar king Kublai Khan. Upon waking, he set about writing lines of poetry that came to him from the dream until he was interrupted by a person from Porlock. The poem could not be completed according to its original 200-300 line plan as the interruption caused him to forget the lines. Although the specific details of Coleridge's Preface are debatable, he most likely composed Kubla Khan during autumn 1797 but left unpublished and kept for private readings until 1816 when, on the prompting by George Gordon Byron, it was made available to the public.

The poem is different in style and form from other poems composed by Coleridge. Kubla Khan is subtitled a "fragment", but it lacks aspects of Coleridge's other fragmentary poems. Instead, its incomplete nature represents aspects of the creative process through its form and message. Its language is highly stylised with a strong emphasis on sound devices that change between the poem's original two stanzas. The first stanza of the poem describes Khan's pleasure dome built alongside a sacred river fed by a powerful fountain. The second stanza of the poem is the narrator's response to the power and effects of an Abyssinian maid's song, which enraptures him but leaves him unable to act on her inspiration unless he could hear her once again. Together, they form a comparison of creative power that does not work with nature and creative power that is harmonious with nature.

Modern critics, with some exceptions, view Kubla Khan as one of Coleridge's three great poems, with The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Christabel. Some critics argue that it is unique in English poetry or one of the greatest English poems, but others claim that its power is overestimated. This is not the case with Coleridge's contemporaries, who mostly denounced the poem upon publication or questioned Coleridge's statements about its origin, but Kubla Khan was originally published because many of Coleridge's associates felt that it, when read by Coleridge aloud, was wonderful. It was not until years later that critics began to openly admire the poem.

The poem begins with a description of Khan's Xanadu, near the river Alph which passes through caverns before reaching a dark or dead sea. Although the land is one of man-made "pleasure", there is a natural, "sacred" river that runs past it. The lines describing the river have a markedly different rhythm from the rest of the passage:[28]

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree :
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea. (lines 1-5)


The land is constructed as a paradisical garden, but like Eden after Man's fall, Xanadu is isolated by walls. The finite property of the constructed walls of Xanadu are contrasted with the infinite properties of the natural caves through which the river runs.

So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
And here were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery. (lines 6-11)

The poem expands on the gothic hints of the first stanza as the narrator explores the dark chasm in the midst of Xanadu's gardens, and describes the surrounding area as both "savage" and "holy". Yarlott interprets this chasm as symbolic of the poet struggling with decadence that ignores nature.[51] It may also represent the dark side of the soul, the dehumanizing effect of power and dominion.

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted

By woman wailing for her demon-lover! (lines 12-16)

From the dark chasm a fountain violently erupts, then forms the meandering river Alph, which runs to the sea described in the first stanza. Fountains are often symbolic of the inception of life, and in this case may represent forceful creativity.[52] Since this fountain ends in death, it may also simply represent the life span of a human, from violent birth to a sinking end.

And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced:
Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail:
And 'mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
It flung up momently the sacred river.
Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
Through wood and dale the sacred river ran,
Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean: (lines 17-28)

Kubla Khan hears voices of the dead, and refers to a vague "war" that appears to be unreferenced elsewhere in the poem. Yarlott argues that the war represents the penalty for seeking pleasure, or simply the confrontation of the present by the past:[53]

And 'mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
Ancestral voices prophesying war! (lines 29-30)


Though the exterior of Xanadu is presented in images of darkness, and in context of the dead sea, we are reminded of the "miracle" and "pleasure" of Kubla Khan's creation. The vision of the sites, including the dome, the cavern, and the fountain, are similar to an apocalyptic vision. Together, the natural and man-made structures form a miracle of nature as they represent the mixing of opposites together, the essence of creativity:[54]

The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice! (lines 31-36)

The narrator turns prophetic, referring to a vision of an unidentified "Abyssinian maid" who sings of "Mount Abora". Harold Bloom suggests that this passage reveals the narrator's desire to rival Khan's ability to create with his own.[55] The woman may also refer to Mnemosyne, the Greek personification of memory and mother of the muses, referring directly to Coleridge's claimed struggle to compose this poem from memory of a dream.

A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
Could I revive within me
Her symphony and song,
To such a deep delight 'twould win me,
That with music loud and long,
I would build that dome in air,
That sunny dome! those caves of ice! (lines 37-47)

The subsequent passage refers to unnamed witnesses who may also hear this, and thereby share in the narrator's vision of a replicated, ethereal, Xanadu. Harold Bloom suggests that the power of the poetic imagination, stronger than nature or art, fills the narrator and grants him the ability to share this vision with others through his poetry. The narrator would thereby be elevated to an awesome, almost mythical status, as one who has experienced an Edenic paradise available only to those who have similarly mastered these creative powers:[56]

And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise. (lines 48-54) "

There was as in Levs and Isaacs narratives an inherent duality if speaking to more than one audience.which one audience can see him lying and another he was speaking the truth from a different perspective. Several of his works, not posted here, had towers with the mosque tops, prior to us going into the Turkish and subsequently Grecian and Sumerian deity matters. At one time. he had the drones along an Egyptian type edifice..which he removed.

It was not to hide anything I believe. But rather to seed for a brief period our minds... Or as in Shamalymans psycho thrillers release a red or black baloon would precede a death. Both IA and Lev approached the mind from two different aspects. IA from a Coleridge transcendental knowing, and Lev from an HP Lovecraft perspective, where a knowing an ancient God , or Elder God like Cthulu would guarantee certain death. The very author.. mentioned ..Again..like the Ferryman crossing us thru the fabled river Styx.
Both are like us navigators, ferrymen, occupy the role of death and the Life in death ofColerdidge. I have no doubt these artists are working together, as they do in alliances. Let me make it clear its not religion they are pushing, just the boundary of imagination. One can't go wrong using such well known classics, celebrated by rock groups such as Iron Maiden, and well covered in wiki. Lev had mentioned the ntartic more than once, and it is an area that intirgued both writers.

http://highwaycyclinggroup.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/unknown-1.jpeg?w=470&h=339


The poem may have been inspired by James Cook's second voyage of exploration (1772–1775) of the South Seas and the Pacific Ocean; Coleridge's tutor, William Wales, was the astronomer on Cook's flagship and had a strong relationship with Cook. On this second voyage Cook crossed three times into the Antarctic Circle to determine whether the fabled great southern continent existed.[1] Critics have also opined that the poem may have been inspired by the voyage of Thomas James into the Arctic. "Some critics think that Coleridge drew upon James's account of hardship and lamentation in writing The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.[2]
In Biographia Literaria XIV, Coleridge writes:

The thought suggested itself (to which of us I do not recollect) that a series of poems might be composed of two sorts. In the one, incidents and agents were to be, in part at least, supernatural, and the excellence aimed at was to consist in the interesting of the affections by the dramatic truth of such emotions, as would naturally accompany such situations, supposing them real. And real in this sense they have been to every human being who, from whatever source of delusion, has at any time believed himself under supernatural agency. For the second class, subjects were to be chosen from ordinary life[b]...In this idea originated the plan of the 'Lyrical Ballads'; in which it was agreed, that my endeavours should be directed to persons and characters supernatural, or at least Romantic; yet so as to transfer from our inward nature a human interest and a semblance of truth sufficient to procure for these shadows of imagination that willing suspension of disbelief for the moment, which constitutes poetic faith. ... With this view I wrote the 'Ancient Mariner'. [/b]
The structure of the poem, according to McGann, is influenced by Coleridge's interest in higher criticism, and its function "was to illustrate a significant continuity of meaning between cultural phenomena that seemed as diverse as pagan superstitions, Catholic theology, Aristotelian science, and contemporary philological theory, to name only a few of the work's ostentatiously present materials."[8]

In his 1946-47 essay "The Mariner and the Albatross", George Whalley suggests that the Ancient Mariner is an autobiographical portrait of Coleridge himself, comparing the Mariner's loneliness with Coleridge's own feelings of loneliness expressed in his letters and journals.[9]


Lovecraft had a lifelong interest in Antarctic exploration. "Lovecraft had been fascinated with the Antarctic continent since he was at least 12 years old, when he had written several small treatises on early Antarctic explorers," biographer S. T. Joshi wrote.[4] At about the age of 9, inspired by W. Clark Russell's 1887 book The Frozen Pirate, Lovecraft had written "several yarns" set in Antarctica.[5]

By the 1920s, S. T. Joshi notes in The Annotated Lovecraft that Antarctica was "one of the last unexplored regions of the earth, where large stretches of territory had never seen the tread of human feet. Contemporary maps of the continent show a number of provocative blanks, and Lovecraft could exercise his imagination in filling them in...with little fear of immediate contradiction."[6]

The first expedition of Richard Evelyn Byrd took place in 1928-1930, the period just before the novella was written, and Lovecraft mentioned the explorer repeatedly in his letters, remarking at one point on "geologists of the Byrd expedition having found many fossils indicating a tropical past".[7] In fact, Miskatonic University's expedition was modelled after that of Byrd.[8]

In Lovecraft: A Look Behind the Cthulhu Mythos Lin Carter suggests - with Joshi noting the suggestion as "facile" - that one inspiration for At the Mountains of Madness was Lovecraft's own hypersensitivity to cold, as evidenced by an incident where the writer "collapsed in the street and was carried unconscious into a drug store" because the temperature dropped from 60 degrees to 30 degrees Fahrenheit (15 degrees to -1 degree Celsius). "The loathing and horror that extreme cold evoked in him was carried over into his writing," Carter wrote, "and the pages of Madness convey the blighting, blasting, stifling sensation caused by sub-zero temperatures in a way that even Poe could not suggest."[9]

Practicing occultist and co-author of The Necronomicon Files John William Gonce III asserts that Lovecraft "never divorced magic from his fiction; he simply married it to science." Gonce says Lovecraft continued to use occult plot devices in his stories until the end of his life.[17]

The story has also inadvertently popularized the concept of ancient astronauts, as well as Antarctica's place in the "ancient astronaut mythology".[1User Image

Nahh old friend. I doubt Lev would allow himself to be known, any more than the Angels and Lot did in the Old testament , or even us want to. which is why we wear the masks we do. He just happens to require a tad more personal space than the average person.
When I found the references to historical artifacts in the LAP, and the other curiosities, it became a find, seek, and compare. Lev himself said it was a game at Reality uncovered... That has not changed for me. I overlook the annoyances he caused at time, and look at all the elements he put before us. The Cthulu mythos, well entrenched in horror fiction, is certainly well embedded, and in the historical record of occult..let me call it Ultist ..fiction. (pun intended).
I once read a short fictional piece about 4 decades ago.. of a race of beings that came to our world to seek help. They were apparently more advanced. What attracted them to us iwas our capacty to think out the box..requisite for survival.. unlike their world, that had genetically filtered crazy people out.. .we allowed ours more or less to exist as a part of our genetic pool. That craziness, mental illness gave us a more creative edge, then they had. Been a while..but that always stuck in my mind.
A fiction can be put to good use..it's understood to be a fiction, yet people act on it to honor the excellence, and even as a therapy.
I lift this link in the last post to demonstrate.

User Image

Great isn't it?..see the http://www.wolfandwater.org/ and what it does. say..I wonder if they can do one like that for the Drone on BB..hehe.why not? a Pic of it would fit perfectly on that map.
I enjoyed Tommis presentation, or analogy to Pi, though not related directly, it was in my minds eye..metaphorical allusion to the Mariner, and helped setup the contrast to Cthulu. Two vehicles we have then to learning and discovery.
Now, the DT, and LMH, are definitely in my opinion the collective genesis of the the Drones demise., to become immersed as a cultural phenomenon like Cthulu or the Ancient Mariner. That should be a signal, for both movie makers and game developers and authors, to avoid using these people as vehicles for insertion into the paranormal or ufolological landscape.
I don't know about the rascalion Bunnywrench, as I never followed him. The journey to Borneo was not wasted, for my use in other matters.
So in summary, if I helped in understanding Lev a bit, good, if not, at least he can read that some of us really cared for him and had a genuine interest in his work and his vision, and their use in pointing the way to answers..
As for AW it must continue to wear the albatross around its neck from here on end. It will find eventually, the cost outweighs the benefit of maintaining a lie, anymore than a bling necklace stirs the soul.
They cannot match the masters Coleridge and HPL and what they gave us. Certainly Lev was instrumental and more effective in giving me a glimpse into his world..and theirs.He really was a "gatekeeper".

Z-brush stellar sculpting program. You did that canvas with that? It reminded me more of the rpg art and covers on the old Amazing and A Galaxy mags. You know, I tried years ago and could not get past the interface, it was so complex. A Maya or Bryce student could easily i am sure. Maybe its a rite of passage or something they have rigged up to pass the interfaces in these tools, an then be called an artist. For all intense and purposes that was an alien panel board . But even some of the byproducts I managed to produce , made fantastic eye candy with that liquid metal effect. Levs has that same liquid metal look, I am sure you picked up on that immediately.

In the midst of the net I came across this called 1 Portal.
which then reminded me of this passage

Porta Ludovica, where reality is contained in a "magic space;" a place only tenuously connected to other related spatial points, denying unilateral thought, confirming a universe of uncertainty -- even, at times, unsure of its own existence. With only the slightest slant in the direction of postmodernism, it becomes a small analog of Avalon, of Shangri-La, of the Goblin Market, Arcadia and Wonderland -- in fact, to any one of a hundred mythical places with which we share a secret coexistence, a portal to a world just at the edge of our reason. And with a small but knowing nod to Net culture, perhaps to even that "consensual hallucination" of Cyberspace itself.

I must say, Rod Serling could not not have said it better himself.

Suddenly I hear a haunting voice , like a sirens , you remember.. those mythical voices that have caused many a mariner and their crew to go mad and jump into the murky waters to certain death. It cried, o no no seniore ..go to Ultissis..Ultissis is the place! come we are here!.

Say on the light portal there were 2 versions. They are from Levs old gallery. About 2 days ago I made out one word that spelled Shinoe,

which is a Japanese name.
By Serendipity, it also the name of a famous woman who wrote down some of the things she saw during or post Hiroshima and was censored heavily by the Allies occupying the city afterwards.. The notes made it out eventually. The Anniversary just passed, Aug 6 1945..66th Anniv.
Interesting..Of course..but that could be just my imagination.. It could be a reference to Shinoe Dj.. as we had many musicians, and artists mentioned and participating..,but they all seemed to ay homage or tribute to something, rather than just sign their name.but given the historical things embedded thruout..I believe its the former, or at the least for a different project.

A note of thanx to Katterfelto for the the NIght Shift Creation..
I would be remiss and dishonest if I were to neglect the skillful use of the embedded imagery, which present us a mosaic of faces and assorted figures. . What drew my attention was the word Help, highlighted. From a normal perspective one could say the dolls were asking for help, but in a way one can say perhaps, the figures on the other side. Bringing to mind purgatory, or hell snd its nine rings ala Dante's in Inferno (not the EA one please), though most of the faces seem just posing or looking.

One can think of the prior references to essences or souls being injected through a factory process, much like early films in matrix and cyberpunk thrillers, where the mind is injected into another body.

Whether its the process of Buddhism, Christianity, or the bizarre 20th century tech offshoots..Scientology, or The Drone factory here..figuratively the process for all of them, may vary, but the effect are always the same, death is always uncomfortably with us..and we chase .immortality, or at least strive for some assurance there is a room with a "continental" bed and breakfast waiting for us on the other side if the promised mansions ,Xanadu, or seven virgins or transferring your essence to a drone.. do not pan out.I rather liked the twilight zones ending..where The old ones decided they wanted their old bodies back, and another episode had an old man decide he wanted no part of heaven, if he couldn't bring his dog inside the "pearly gates".Now those were class acts. Still , by allusion and alliteration, or other convenient device..we have a divine comedy indeed..and that is not a bad thing at all, not even on the day shift, night shift or graveyard shifts, the process..keeps going like a train..without need of fuel or belief..
The key is to have and keep active imagination like a child's to enjoy a many times bumpy ride, whether on a train, plane, or other "Transport "device" we crave the real thing..

Thank you Klat...I don't know what to say...Did you know Mark Twain, Thank you Double, was a riverboat pilot, before his brother was killed on one in an explosion? he turned to the paranormal for comfort, for a while, spoke with Tesla and Edison, helped Helen Keller, wrote some of the greatest essays on womens suffrage.. In his latter years, He lost most of his fortune on inventions, yet..despite Bankruptcy, he paid his debts, when he did not have to. A remarkable man of no small significance and impact even today. Its from men like this and those I have already discussed that our artists and writers and "players" here drew their inspiration from. Like runners in baton race, we pass it on to the next runner....as they tried through the drone device and LAP pass it on to those willing to hear and listen...we are all pilots of our own ship. Sometimes strange passengers s climb aboard like the gamblers in Huck Finn and their motives we know from the story were less than altruistic..but eventually..the journey was completed.

I prefer not to be at war with starving musicians or artists. We are all both sides of the same coin. We both rage against the machine and mediocrity. What better way, what better mediums. than and art and music, and writing are the best weapons to fight. It is mediocrity, and indifference to cultures, that propel us into wars, conflicts and strife. Who is the enemy of these is my friend. Many, Most, Like Zombies..like drones follow most naturally, into what is the very un natural act of self destruction. Unlike bee drones, we have no hollow logs or cavities to form another hive.

My Dear boy, its a natural thing. Much like the doggy perceives the wooden doggy form, thinks it's real, or decides to hump the knee, whether he perceives your knee as alien or not , the urge is there. we would call that arousal, but we would not for the most part call that an awakening. No moral arguments or judgement , just a detached observation..and opinion. I recall months ago your profile at a game site that had no qualms among your peers, to express yourself openly about the act. No need here either. Lots of art and advertising is geared to and has that affinity and is exploited deliberately. While the drone craft is given to us as an autonomous vehicle, independent,,and later in the T Connor episode as a sentient living thing infused with the Oltissis essence..as our own God9s) gave us a spark of himself/themselves. in fact..it was more a cry for help..they needed a place to survive...I saw no attempt at arousal..but awakening yes. But..at a deeper level..there is a desire to possess..something of the other. they...our world..and Ted their "pleasure" palaces by both sides of that equation..pondering the rush of thoughts in that direction..I can concede..it giving a a rise to those so inclined.

No Old Friend, perhaps it is I getting too old. Though an assault on the senses or world view, your article and image was spot on.
I always wondered where the Enterprise in Star Trek got its molecules for that delicious food.. Its the recognition that sciences and arts and writing are transforming nature itself faster than our very senses can keep up with.
Cormans art which we lament passing is like looking at Victor Hugos work how an idea via the newly invented Printing Press in Germany can transform and move people, and expose vaster audiences to new perspectives such as social caste, gender roles, religion, and so on.
Il existe à cette époque, pour la pensée écrite en pierre, un privilége tout-à-fait comparable à notre liberté actuelle de la presse. C'est la liberté de l'architecture.

There exists in this era, for thoughts written in stone, a privilege absolutely comparable to our current freedom of the press. It is the freedom of architecture.
—Book V, Chapter 2

Only art of architecture, at the time, where no building could be taller than a church, lest we violate the rules of God above all.
The connotation being we resist change and determinism..
The internet is our printing press, but where written words and ideas are a hundred times more fluid, and bridges us to past present and future. It has made it possible in a real way, to touch God Himself by exposing and enriching us with an infinity of truth from the Tree of knowledge.. as well as the Snakes of the Garden..a hundred fold as well..that still slither loose...such is the nature of Eden
But with those truths is the reality we have to assume some more of the Big Bosses daily duties..Can we fill his shoes?..I don't know.Will he be back..Like Isaac, perhaps he is waiting for the dust of his creation to settle down..just as he said..
An Interesting exchange in the first 5 minutes of this scene in The Hunchback of Notre Dame

We sometimes have to lose our heads, before we can find them Klat.
There is no Arc though, anymore merely dissolved, though the elements that made it form remain, like the Drone, our Herald..
Is ufology dead? is Roswell, the Cathedral dead..? a good thing that happened to Cathedrals after Hugos time was that a revival took place resulting in the restoration of the one we see in France..

Much like we see the retro art and preservation of Corman's and hundreds of others, that will keep their dreams and visions alive.

Perhaps Lev is our Quasimodo or the Young Poet, protecting Esmeralda the Gypsy, or even you your own way, carrying a struggle to keep it alive as much as Lev., because you need the clash of ideas to feel alive. And don't we all. But often the ideas we seek to protect, or to kill, can lead to unintended consequences..Like holding the bird in hand too tight, we choke it, or too carelessly.. ..gets away.

If one had the innate power and self-control to moderate one's own inner lustful urges don't you think there would be a lot less useless hoaxing going around?
IF and Then you know is very open ended.
Why yes, IF one understands the nature of the beast, and focus as the tiger focuses on one and only one Zebra, among the hundreds ,amid the array of stripes meant to confuse a predator, well then we would have a lot more useful hoaxes, I believe I made that analogy back in 2007 to PJ, bless his heart.
WE must remember that 2006 and up The PTB had millions to invest and were keen to use the Social networks and forums, Carat and meany others, being noobs in this touchy area.. met at that time in Hong kong..how to exploit this growth opportunity and follow the examples Ammo and EA, probably the most experienced in this arena, that exploited the UFO forums..gobbled up by Carat-Fusion then gobbled up by Aegis. Dell gobbled up AW to prevent competition with its Server business. These do not happen willy . They are focused, based on survival and greed , transfigurative terms for our personal sins, like lust vanity gluttony, to perpetuate their kind. We can say there but for the grace go I, being able to put ourselves in theirs or the victims shoes. Victim can be the Hoaxee, or the thousands of Graphic artists laid off after their cannabalistic mergers.. It was a volatile period for Warners, Fox and their like, and coming together for their own good is not surprising.Yes like grandma giving us a teaspoon of bad medicine, she says Demis , this good for you..upon looking closer at her we notice an abnormal amount of hair growth, and her dentures rather toothy, and smile with come a lil bit closer..too inviting.
Is deception a good thing?...why of course!..it worked for Ghengis Khan , on the battlefield.. , The Lion or Tiger does not always get its prey..but it's tactics stay the same..
If the project was a failure, trust me..They study it and understand why..in business it's called a justifiable failure...have quantified results for the next time to assure success. Unlike the tiger..they can change tactics. Lev already said so. His words were not hollow, irrespective of state of mind as portrayed to us.


Some called him a mad man, others a saint..certainly he helped bring Change.
Double was right..It might make a Russian size novel..or novellete, at least. Say do you speak Russian or Polish? I remember you told me you were part Dutch, but not what the other part was.. and with that linguistic mastery .well the sky is the limit! Sacre Bleu! wink

Requirements specification is an important problem in software engineering. Key challenges in Requirements Engineering (RE) include enabling different stakeholders to understand and validate the requirements, and enabling collaboration among different types of stakeholders with different skills and expertise and potentially conflicting needs and expectations. We contend that collaboration among both technical and non-technical stakeholders is improved by a requirements specification technique that provides both precision and usability - and a better balance of the two. We implement our specification technique in iMuse - Interactive Model-based Use-case and Storytelling Environment. In this demo, we show how iMuse can be used by stakeholders to express and view narrative functional requirements.



Siddhartha
applies the domain-specific language (DSL) paradigm to solve difficult problems in specification-based testing (SBT). Domain-specific test case data specifications (TestSpecs) and difficult-to-test program design styles engender difficult SBT problems, which are the essential phenomena of interest to Siddhartha. Difficult-to-test program design styles are explicitly represented by domain-specific, unit test driver reference designs that accommodate the problematic program design styles. DSLs are developed to represent both TestSpecs and Driver reference designs. A DSL language processing tool (a translator) is developed that maps TestSpecs into Drivers. We developed a prototype implementation of Siddhartha via Reasoning SDK (formerly known as Software Refinery) and developed two domain-specific TestSpec-> Driver translators. Each translator generated Drivers that revealed new failures in a real-world digital flight control application program.

His like some here is the quest for the perfect interface , the perfect language..the Esperanta , the Rosetta stone of all machines ..to communications..A friend, or at least a great spirit WE hardly knew., but whose dreams live on and touch us thru his Thundercats, and students, and colleagues..and which certainly are instrumental in helping us achieve our own aspirations.

While the drone itself seemed a simple commercial product..as Caret intended..I believe there will be a trickle up , like ants going up a giant redwood..as the suppressed messages collective artists surfaces to the top..with time...But returning to this art..personalizing or toys or our weapons..is a very personal thing..especially as one comes face to face with death..empowering with comfort and confidence..as do masks..

A-musing to to say the least..far off from the center of controversy it nevertheless reflects the scrapbook texture of our story. The farther off from the controversy the closer I feel to an answer.Imagine playing hopscotch on a giant quilt, and each stitched square..is another world. We have history, Literature, music, philosophy and as with the Japanese group..Satanspornoworkshop, and UB radio, the retro and the avante garde..all of them in one way or another..act as librarians and psycho archeologists each preserving a piece of the past from which they came to compare distinguish..or even return to.
It certainly raises the question how do we preserve what was..while at the same time change so rapidly.and the mediums of preservation are so volatile. ,,like a scanned copy loses a few pixels to the next..at the end of a few thousand copies you have a blank page.redundancy is inadequate..Perhaps Farenheit 451 was not so far off.

Or Was that young Dumb and From Brooklyn?..That sounds and feels more like it...
On a another sidenote..

Enough cannot be said about the explosion of self expression and formation
neo tribes and their para spirtual music... All like a laptop or other product seeking btand identity, uniqueness, still in the end..
wind up just as katterfelto said one day "another stick in the mud."
If we peruse actual ceremonies of tribes and their shamen we knot their is a coordination of movement.
between members, verses the individualized hopping, and arm stretching in the follwing youtube festivals, in Japan, and the us.
It is the community and cooperation vs the percieved conscious liberation of self that make such a a stark but facinating contrast.
A member of the latter, cannot count on help from the latter as opposed to the former. Despite the copy cat tatooing, the piercing of
genitalia, and fusion of techno babble or lingo.over a cup of Latte...because the group does it.I would not equate them as a true tribe m showing cooperation on colorful festivals. Once the festival is over..its back to 9 to 5..what was important were the lights..neuron bashing blitz of sound..whatever message conveyed d was thru the shaman.
where the Techno shamen become the center rather than the tribe gathering itself..the focus of celebration.
Still we can still see the general lookin good..and strut and chicken style so prevelant at any of these events
Tribal Fusion is beautiful in concept..but whereas the ying yang wheel was spinning in Dance fever..it seemed to slow down to a crawl.. at the Tribal fusion groups..whose movement resembled more spasms..to corpses that have but a glimmer of life left in them.
I would venture to say..they closer to the drone mentality..than the one sin polyster suits stayin alive..just an opinion of course..
If you make it past 2 of these you are good.

Still, it was for selection of the fittest from a Darwanistic perspective, a clash of Urban sub tribes, Puertorican, Italian,Black, etc.[youtube]
In the Fusion..its an amorphous blob..a croud held mesmerized by light and sound, and whatever they brung with em in ther Brown bags.


It is being argued in the circles that study such matters..that despite tribal warfare in ancient times, there was actually less bloodshed..

The competition for resources, has resulted in extermination of real tribes and increased wars .as we speak.
We are the Tribe..the ETs conquering the remaining..leftovers from paradise, in many quarters..the new Axis of Evil.

Why Berslusconi himself learned from this man, his personal trainer... If the Chinese PM and all these men who lack natural rythm can..

Sigh...But I digress..Nasa is dead..but I don't think the Drone and who made it is having provided their audience in our amphitheaters to be both spectator and participant..to reach destinations to outworlds real and imagined, and inwards to where even angels fear to tread..there are risks in every journey..particularly in those journey like the first explorers, risks minimized by reaching back to experiences accumulated over a long period of time. Do we break as the old branch with our mind made up moralizing....resisting the wind, or bend with the wind and remain standing afterwards. Have our lenses we see the world thru become to foggy..that the become blinders A myopic or tunnel vision. points of view,
..I hope not. And it is clear to me we are beyond the molecular physics or brownian motion of ideas..because we do have something molecules don't..choice., and choosing with courage, compassion, and understanding, can lead to such surprisingly wonderful canvasses.

Thank you Marvin and Katterfelto..those were a great gesture and I cannot express my appreciation enough. I decided to take the invitation to try my hand to try this amazing mosaic technique that had me stymied for so long I used nearly 3 thousand of my archived photos of nearly six thousand. I hope if u can manage the acual 40 meg download..shades of Woy.. you will arrive at percent just like the LAP and 100" see really amazing detail see the photos . At 200 u can read all the docouments as if they were in your hands... Something for obvious reasons..the Creators of the Lap were not inclined to do in there work and other actors photos... But I understand , truly I do. I tried to make it an accurate representation of all we did together..even at 3 k ..it does not touch the surface of what you all accomplished. is in there, and many will recognize some, never brought into discussion. Occasional family photos..as we are all inextrably one family. Something in these difficult times we must never forget.

When i lived in Brooklyn, a rat came into my crib, and chewed my small toe almost clean off..it was repaired..and wonders..it looks almost normal! I still wiggle it and pinch i just to make sure its really..real..But we must admire their persistence(not my toes, the rats)I believe they never move more than 200 yards from whatever nest they have.when one consumes poison it urinates on the item so the rest will avoid. they have an uncanny ability to avoid radioactive material..though are susceptible as most mammals to direct exposure.. i think only the roach and or veggie broccoli can survive large amounts and still reproduce..I can't recall the carrots resistance level..but..

Persistence of life for the rat.. is as tenacious as the persistence of ideas..just the even smallest virus manifests in its need to replicate itself, encounter resistance..adapt..outpacing the hosts ability to adapt..to a small blade of grass coming out of the highway against all the odds o survival..
It finds a way..where Willard ended..Ben began..

As far as Artwork, klat..i really don't know.. I have been musing..on a more complete release..did you like it? Honest? Jeepers..I knew someone else would find interesting more surprises and things in there..What did you llike?
Its indeed like Double said a trip down memory lane..and then some!. not exactly a box of chocolates..but still a treat.
just as the lap was for me..This was my way of sharing the fun I believe Isaac group tried..but people were too busy..counting pixels..not studying them.. Some can say..well it was really a private joke..which Hollywood people do in the movies putting toys or such on to of props like in Close encounters..They do get quite the nerd kick sometime..imagine if that Star Wars figure Marvin caught..in Linda's hi res had not "disappeared".and explained with great nods of approval and relief.....That would have been too obvious..and fatal..wouldn't it?..What do you say Linda?.

If I do, then I want the next one to also be as the Akashic records.a .Hall of mirrors.a cave of lights...with our words, and documents from all over,.a pot pourri as it were.maybe experience a eureka or even an Arcadian moment!. If you will. shocked so whoever decides to hop in for the ride. can enjoy the same process that enveloped and impelled me and most of us.

yes..from the moving funny bright side..

And of course the darker and more valuable lessons worthy of a Shakespearean theater that can be learned from the Jungle not taught by pointy headed academics, who never stepped out of their mazed bubbled research labs..but like the blind mice of tales...can tell us what the elephant looked like, and go on to explain the meaning of life to meet the publishing requirements for tenure.

Whether its Aristotle, Aesop, Shakespeare..or Kunta Kinte or Rudy Ray Moore..there is a an important message for us all in Art and Humour.

Let's pause..They say beauty is only skin deep.It's in the eye of the beholder...what lurks beneath it,
is as mysterious as what lurks behind our avatars. We examine the works closely behind the laughter we see an amazing conluence of imagery remeniscent perhaps of one of the most influential SF writers and thinkers of any time. Ray Bradburry and his piece.. The Illustrated Man.
User Image

Per wiki
The Illustrated Man is a 1951 book of eighteen science fiction short stories by Ray Bradbury that explores the nature of mankind. While none of the stories has a plot or character connection with the next, a recurring theme is the conflict of the cold mechanics of technology and the psychology of people.
The unrelated stories are tied together by the frame device of "the Illustrated Man", a vagrant with a tattooed body whom the unnamed narrator meets. The man's tattoos, allegedly created by a woman from the future, are animated and each tell a different tale. All but one of the stories had been previously published elsewhere, although Bradbury revised some of the texts for the book's publication.
The concept of the Illustrated Man would later be reused by Bradbury as an antagonistic character in Something Wicked This Way Comes, the tattoos coming to represent the souls of sinful victims of a mysterious carnival.
The book was made into a 1969 film starring Rod Steiger and Claire Bloom. It was adapted by Howard B. Kreitsek from the stories "The Veldt", "The Long Rain", and "The Last Night of the World", and directed by Jack Smight.
A number of the stories, including "The Veldt", "The Fox and the Forest" (as "To the Future"), "Marionettes Inc.", and "Zero Hour" were dramatized for the 1955-57 radio series X minus 1. "The Veldt," "The Concrete Mixer," "The Long Rain," "Zero Hour," and "Marionettes Inc." were adapted for the TV series The Ray Bradbury Theater.


But of course, I am the only who one can see this visual treat . I rather enjoy the company of my imaginary playmates who bring me these treasures. all to myself..feeding my madness some would say..a nourishment, an elixir without which I would consider myself brain dead..

Members of hybrid gangs often escalate criminal activity to gain attention and respect, drawing the concern of the FBI, according to the report.

The Virginia Gang Investigators Association, an advocacy group of mostly sworn law enforcement officers, holds training sessions for hundreds of local residents on the "increased violence" of this group and the violence connected with their music.

Too funny. reading .Batman must be part of required reading material at Quantico.

I wonder what kind of bling they wear. Marvin quick..can we rub elbows with them and market market this? Can we have them wear Air Nikes, Timberlakes,
or what not is popular and by association get a winner.

Can we connect all the global villages and sell to them Make our cross cultural logos , icons, etc just like the LAP that establish uniqueness while evolving into one global amorphous mass of consumers. Dont' have much time left Marv before individuality becomes extinct.

PS did you know the IPC have a phobia of magnets? How bizarre.

On a non Artistic note..Say..in looking for Docs whereabouts can we impose on BJ to use the UCB's enormous talent pool, maybe even Lindas pal Sylvia Browm or Ed Dames.. in-house psychics and remote viewers to locate him.

Nice..there but for the grace of chance go I.
Katt conceptually, whether intentionally or not, you addres several matters simulaneously..you are way ahead of the curve on this.
This is somehat reminiscent of the 2001 Space odyssey flashback to the monoliths when our simian ancestors exposed to one suddenly realized in a Eureka moment..the importance of grabbing a bone and breaking other bones with it. accompanied by the moving music Zarathustra of course, went on to defend itself from the rest of the clans or troops , and provide it a winning edge, and land a porkchop a lot easier.
Link must doubleclick to work

I only wish we had inspiring music like that when we have moments like that. Having Chariots of fire playing as we go to work, emerge from a divorce, our first raise, or getting lucky.

Here our friend is building something notwithstanding the imagery on the blocks, undersandable only to us the adults, like a real childs playtoys where the infant plays building yet..does not understand the monumental significance of Letters and pictures..until much later on.
Yet these not understood images remain embedded..and are ones we universally identify with..
KLatt you, with your background on cave art, drama, and theater, and lingistics also touched on that in the humour thread. It is what it is
User Image
. That is exactly what Freud said reflectting on his work..sometines a cigar is just a cigar..you know..on the subject of baby blocks...that drone image resembled very much a baby rattler.
User Image
.the laptop..unused or un noticed in the corner .is .our monolith waiting .... symbolizing the new bulding block and learning tool on our quests and evolution.
The symbology has never been lost on me from the discovery of the art within art and this seems to be A stanley kubric way of adressing the drones, symbols and evolution of its art to its current stage unlike the James Cameron goal of sitting entertainment..
(Hmmm I thought about doing a learning skit with AW at this second, but this is a serious thread..so I will dispense with that and not spoil the threads integrity..)
But very good!...worthy of a collection and some additional thought...sans a Jungian or Freudean perspective of course, Gort would be one authority in that area that if he ever drops back in, and Doc.(.really miss him) would shed some light as well.. smiley Still..another well done and thought provoking piece(s) Katt and Klatt.

PR post reflection 11/13/2011 Ano Dominus 14:36 EST...being the incurable romantic amidst a group of enlightened and incorrigible Renaissance men...metaphorically ...the Caret can be viewed as the letter sent to Oltissis made it..but was mysteriously returned by the recipient isn't it, almost like unrequitted love never knowing why...something that has crossed our paths for all of us at one time or another sad
With that final sad thought in mind..and hopefully without objection..we should title Katts work as Returned to Sender

My goodness first Sanford and Son Music only on this thread..at every entry! knock knock hello McFly, are you there? who's idea was that..is it a subliminal hint?..Then an ad for Wheel of Fortune..have they no sense of decorum?, throwing all this gratuitous nonsense on this hallowed ground. crass commercialism..nothing else...Just what in the Sam hill is going on here? it's an Art thread for God's sake.! shocked

Well..let's continue..you know something Katter? ( I know you know a lot..just figure of speech).....I think we are not welcome here..either side to be quite honest..No entries made other than You or I or one of the other alumni of the Caret class of 2007. There seems to be absolutely no interest.
But that's ok. We can be realistic..The end is nigh..I here a drummer sounding in the distance..going ratta ta ta..ratta ta ta,,and its not Christmas approaching nor 2023..sad

But let's be of good cheer ..Now that is an interesting picture Katter..The Bed bug, the Luna Moth, the Stink bug and the Wolf spider.
At first blush one would say..look he's attacking oltissis...but no..imo..This is actually a compliment to the symetry in nature almost like the New agers reference to Bio Mimmicry .. Having had experience with BB I can tell you they will most certainly take over your rooms, and leave a nasty odor, and they operate totally in the dark just like the crop circle makers..Short of having your own flamethrower are next to impossible to evict. They are parasitic..the Luna moth is always impressive, look like the old Delta shaped bombers with RAF insignia.. and the similarity n the the drone motif is interesting, like a fractal image or Fibonacci impelled design.. ( I wonder when these images were actually made) The Stink bug, or shield bug..are annoying, and some can damage crops.but there is a predatory line that eats japanese beetles and the like..very beneficial..but some variants are eaten in mexico and vietnam. Sound revolting..well better get used to hearing about them....we are all headed there.
The wolf spider..solitary, keeps young with her, not known for much web weaving..,,it goes after its prey rather directly....some just stay in open others lurking ..some just camoflage or burrows and contrary to some belief, they do not howl at the moon....glad we are not part of their menu.

Thank you for thaT Katter

It was always about those masks and that influence and that churning of the imagination..trust and mistrust, what is seen, and wasn't seen,....what was said and wasn't said ..spoke volumes

http://www.schlacks.com/downloads/TDJ1/Elliott.doc
by Shanti ElliotThroughout Diary of a Writer, Dostoevsky places ultimate aesthetic value in the “unuttered word,” drawn from the folk proverb, “the uttered word is silver, but the unuttered word is gold.” Vigorously stretching its image to include all kinds of expression and perspective, he opposes the golden unuttered word to the “uttered word” which is emphatically pronounced in contemporary Russian literature, art, and thought: “The very valuable rule that an uttered word is silver but an unuttered one golden has long ceased to be a habit among our artists. They have little faith in their readers.” As we shall see, Dostoevsky outlines the shape of the “uttered word” in Diary of a Writer, but, appropriately, leaves the “unuttered word” undefined and silent. I will not interfere with this noble silence, but I will try here to focus on particularly unuttered moments in Dostoevsky’s own work, in particular The Brothers Karamazov, and formulate an idea about how they really are “golden.”

Still .the more we hide behind masks....the lonelier and weaker we get..and like the glass one where he touches another glass surface..I think.we can many times.forget that even though we see only ourselves in reflection, we cannot see what on other side..and that.perhaps someone on the other side is reaching out to touch us..we do not have to walk alone, we can break the glass barrier if we push hard enough against it.....It may be unsafe,,we may get cut painfully so...that is the price nature exacts for change in ourselves as well as the world around us.

I tend to go overboard at imes..but it was in fun. I'm using a Dell now. But I must say have exceeded pushing the drones not as a craft but the power of ideas, its road to acceptance and its flowering perhaps as something untintended..unless whe view it as change for changes sake. With a lot of help from us..even Lev would agree..I am sure..

PS Glad you liked Pacabel wanted to get us all in there as in the movie "ordinary people"..but had little time..we are all just that ordinary people living through extraordinary experiences and change and the Leviathan captured that in his art, for us as well as himself.

Ok, I'll scoot back to the humor or investigative thread with anything else, but just wanted to say.. I still don't have a clue who was involved in this whole thing and why and I still believe what is almost impossible to believe... that AW just stole the designs in the same way I stole Lev's mask. Basically I stole it because it was what I felt like at the time and it had the name masker33 when I downloaded it. smiley Since he is the possessor of my cat.. I suppose he doesn't really have to knick the photo of him, identical those two grin

edit to add: Yeah, "subtext".. It's an English thing.. I've learned from hard experience.

Lev has contributed some excellent art. If it is true that the Alabama drone or whatever is his work, then he has come a long way. I actually think he has some interesting ideas, and I probably agree with him on many points, but he is either unable or just can't be bothered to articulate them in a respectful, adult discussion. That's what this forum is for, after all. I've tried many times to draw him out, get him engaged as an alternative to the infantile nonsense he seems to love. Some of those attempts were probably too subtle, some too ham-handed. For whatever reason, none of them seemed to have any effect.

Sometimes when he shows up in new socks, I suspect his intentions might be to participate in a more productive way, but it always seems to degenerate into the same idiotic exchanges. I am responsible for some part of that, of course. My own participation is the only variable I have any control over, so I decided a few days ago that I'll not respond to him in any way. Probably the best way for me to accomplish that is to just stay away from here for a while, and I've been needing a break anyway.

Come on, Lev. You are no more special than any of the rest of us. Let's hear what you have to say.

Nice find Katter..I'm not surprised, persistence of vision..or as we embed images now as part of tracing and establishing ownership for copyright purposes. as well as tracking items and how info flows between individuals and groups as Facebook and Ficker do..that info is worth a lot of money to commerce and government..for obvious reasons. we type a word and instantly an ad pops up .or an alert pops up somewhere else...Tineyeye is making great progress..but still leaves a lot to be desired. Nostradamus had to avoid being singled out as practicing black arts and disguised his writings. People look or codes in the bible..I'm no adherent of that..One of the first things that emerged from the invention of the printing press was piracy, so one can imagine what one had to do to make sure if you found a copy it was yours...virtually impossible..then..it is now commonplace

Please note..Its about nature..not a woman..its about a much bigger picture than you or I.
Though elemnts within the imagery of the LAP an delsewhere remind me of the the medeval question..how many angels can fit on the head of a needle?
What is an angel anyway. Wiki defines ithem..
Angels are mythical beings often depicted as messengers of God in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles along with the Quran. The English word angel is derived from the Greek ἄγγελος, a translation of מלאך (mal'akh) in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh); a similar term, ملائكة (Malāīkah), is used in the Qur'an. The Hebrew and Greek words originally mean messenger,

Glimpses into the imagery reveal a grand universe of musicians actors and the like.in a celebration of life.. That many believers and non believers ignored .
I need not look any further..It was a good message..occasionally disturbing yet it is resoundingl that we are the answer to our own questions, irrespective of religious or secular leanings. Easier said than done, unless you reach out and suddenly by your acts in compassion....become an angel to another and they to you..
We are each worth something though we may feel helpless..dismally hopless..but no the world will not be a better place without you or I, indeed a much better one with you and I.

Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty. One person may even perceive deformity, where another is sensible of beauty; and every individual ought to acquiesce in his own sentiment, without pretending to regulate those of others. To seek in the real beauty, or real deformity, is as fruitless an enquiry, as to pretend to ascertain the real sweet or real bitter. According to the disposition of the organs, the same object may be both sweet and bitter; and the proverb has justly determined it to be fruitless to dispute concerning tastes. It is very natural, and even quite necessary to extend this axiom to mental, as well as bodily taste; and thus common sense, which is so often at variance with philosophy, especially with the skeptical kind, is found, in one instance at least, to agree in pronouncing the same decision.

The music would have fit the wasteland image perfectly as well to be honest., but the sea and sense of drifting, looking for that harbor that never appears ..I think captures it magnificently, imo. For the artifice of the Caret, that is its fate. We gave it life., gave it mooring in our minds harbor and set it out back to sea, or like the child that puts a message in a bottle , corks it and throws it into the receding waves and the whims of the passage of time and the elements. if Fate is kind, it returns and the stranger can marvel at how it did so and look for the author, or pauses at the end of his or her musings, and recasts it back into the sea.

we can see how the juxtapositoning of the art pieces to each other , the very shapes, seems to unintentionally predate the LAP art style itself, captured the heart and mind of OTF and who knows this is what draws him into both Kandinsky's and Isaacs world.

wiki:
Kandinsky was similarly influenced during this period by Richard Wagner's Lohengrin which, he felt, pushed the limits of music and melody beyond standard lyricism.[citation needed] He was also spiritually influenced by H. P. Blavatsky (1831–1891), the best-known exponent of theosophy. Theosophical theory postulates that creation is a geometrical progression, beginning with a single point. The creative aspect of the form is expressed by a descending series of circles, triangles and squares. Kandinsky's book Concerning the Spiritual In Art (1910) and Point and Line to Plane (1926) echoed this theosophical tenet. Illustrations by John Varley in Thought Forms (1901) influenced him visually.[3]

Small squares of colours and coloured bands stand out against the black background of Composition X as star fragments (or filaments), while enigmatic hieroglyphs with pastel tones cover a large maroon mass which seems to float in the upper-left corner of the canvas. In Kandinsky’s work some characteristics are obvious, while certain touches are more discrete and veiled; they reveal themselves only progressively to those who deepen their connection with his work[citation needed]. He intended his forms (which he subtly harmonized and placed) to resonate with the observer's soul.

Spinnewise the nice German lady at Paranormal institue remarked at the similarity and beauty. I could not agree more. I would say you were born for this project Well done OTF. smiley

The US defence establishment is shocked that the head of its research arm, Darpa, managed to give a military contract to an outfit which is run by her and her dad.

According to Wired, Darpa gave a $400,000 contract to RedXDefense which is a Maryland firm that specialises in detecting things that go bang.

However RedXDefense was co-founded in 2005 by Regina Dugan who is a director of Darpa. Her dad, Vince, is RedXDefense’s Chief Executive Officer. If that was not enough Kevin Bacon for you her uncle, John, is on the company’s strategic advisory board. No mention if any of the family pets are on the board, but it would seem all that cash as going to the family Dugan.

Nick Schwellenbach of the Project on Government Oversight said that Dugan is a perfect example of one of those private/public revolving doors that need a good look at. We agree. Revolving doors are simply an embarrassment, particularly if you get stuck in one.

I think the art could be improved here. Less illustrative and more cinematic. It is just becoming so old hat. The artist might profit from a visit to the beach or perhaps seek illustrations in books or just visit friends who can help. What do you think about an improvement in this old drone stuff.!

No problem...if you find some more new drone art.. stuff..be my guest It is not about one artist we covered a few already...of potential influences pre and post....so plenty of things to look for and get the sense of spirit as well as mind the artist had. The arabesque hindu, buddhist, dharmic..influence..are some of many..maybe we will see something else in another place..But you make good point of seeing other things..some artists are totally introspective..others reach out add..they both have a place..a collection should have both..I agree.

I have yet to see here an artist using really good equipment as to software and hardware. It all looks like 2007 efforts. Drone art is not to my liking and is only a thread subject for a ridiculed, debunked and fraudulent hoax. The ridicule on the humor thread must have done a job on those gullible and foolish enough to post such a mixed up inconsistent bit of dribble. So it follows the art is reflective of that. The artistic personality is beyond me, only a psychologist could decipher it.

In the culture of South Asia, hijras are physiological males who have feminine gender identity, women's clothing and other feminine gender roles. The Hijras (Hindi: हिजड़ा, Urdu: ہِجڑا‎, Bengali: হিজড়া, Kannada: ಹಿಜಡಾ, Telugu: హిజ్ర Punjabi ਹਿਜਰਅwink are also known as chhakka in Kannada and Bambaiya Hindi, khusra (ਕੁਸਅਰਅwink in Punjabi and kojja in Telugu.

Hijras have a long recorded history in the Indian subcontinent, from antiquity, as suggested by the Kama Sutra period onwards. This history features a number of well-known roles within subcontinental cultures, part gender-liminal, part spiritual and part survival.


User Image

User Image

In South Asia, many hijras live in well-defined, organized, all-hijra communities, led by a guru.[1][2] These communities have sustained themselves over generations by "adopting" young boys who are rejected by, or flee their family of origin.[3] Many work as sex workers for survival.[4]

The word hijra is a Hindi-Urdu word, derived from the Arabic root hjr in its sense of "leaving one's tribe,"[5] and has been borrowed into Hindi. The Indian usage has traditionally been translated into English as "eunuch" or "hermaphrodite," where "the irregularity of the male genitalia is central to the definition."[6] However, in general hijras are born with typically male physiology, only a few having been born with male intersex variations.[7] Some Hijras undergo an initiation rite into the hijra community called nirwaan, which refers to the removal of penis, testicles and scrotum.[4]

Since the late 20th century, some hijra activists and Western non-government organizations (NGOs) have been lobbying for official recognition of the hijra as a kind of "third sex" or "third gender," as neither man nor woman.[8]

Certainly this imo seems a more lofty goal or even platform versus the Judeo-Christian apologists
here
http://carm.org/hermaphrodites
A hermaphrodite is a person who possesses the sexual organs of both male and female. The Bible does not address hermaphroditism. Therefore, it is difficult to ascertain doctrinally the Lord's position about them. Nevertheless, what are we to make of hermaphrodites?

God's intention of the genders is that those born males act like males and those born females act like females. But, in rare instances there are babies born with the sexual organs of both sexes. Why is this? First of all, sin is in the world and it sometimes takes its tolls on our bodies resulting in various deformities. Nevertheless, in the case of hermaphroditism, the identity of the individual is still intended by God to be one or the other. After all, God would not make someone in contradiction to His created order and purpose.


Its obvious to me this man has never met a transgender in his life.or been beyond the white picket fence of his parish..

From Ruby Wolfe
I'm floating downstream where the rapids crash and it's difficult to see, I catch glimpses of life like scenes in a film that that are as temporal as the breaths I strain to grasp, and sometimes when the waters calm, though the bank slips away from my fingertips I can still clasp flowers in the palms of my hands, keepsakes i wear as chains around my wrists, that tangle and choke with minutes of pearls i spew like swellings of stone, cradling my throat with listless crush, but though sometimes I grieve and fade I would not forsake this volatile womb for anything.

Agdistis adactyla is a moth in the Pterophoridae family. It is known from most of the Palaearctic ecozone, from central and south-western Europe to eastern Asia.[2] Records including China (Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Gansu, Ningxia, Xinjiang), Mongolia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey.

User Image
The wingspan is 22-26 mm. The forewings are dark grey with four dark spots along the costa. The hindwings are also grey with a cream colored fringe. Adults are on wing from June to mid August.[3]

There is no doubt in my mind that the Mothman is a metaphor for our artist at hand. not that he is..he could be someone quite sympathetic..as I am..with .the lives many of these individuals lead..the cover of nite..much kinder than the day..unless they are out in mumbers...they are the shadow people..hopefully their day in the sun will come soon..

So..how can we demand aliens contact us..when we can't even understand those we treat as aliens living among us since we were one celled organismsm... I don't pretend to know the answers.This is perhaps one of the voices missed among the musicians..Artists..the science..the moral preaching on Green and the vegitarianism and of course commercial pandering in the caret project, the community project..but not as caring as it should have been for members of this community..
A most interesting message from the Artist who ehibits great deftness in covering the many faces of alienation and communicated it effectively..the way others in the movement did like Atto

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_discovery
it has been argued that, in regard to multiple discovery, science and art are similar.[11][12] When two scientists independently make the same discovery, their papers are not word-for-word identical, but the core ideas in the papers are the same. Likewise, two novelists may independently write novels with the same core themes, though their novels are not identical word-for-word.

The paradigm of recombinant conceptualization[13] —more broadly, of recombinant occurrences—that explains multiple discovery in science and the arts, also elucidates the phenomenon of historic recurrence, wherein similar events are noted in the histories of countries widely separated in time and geography. It is the recurrence of patterns that lends a degree of prognostic power—and, thus, additional scientific validity—to the findings of history.

Personally some very nice things were said of you the drones and its participants..something no one else did, including its creators..and marketers..despite themselves..howz that for the truth...
If that was Sidds picture..how did you come about it?..never mind..He would not remember which one it was.. But..kindly ..please refrain from grudge posting. creator or not....you cant stop a person from saying nice things, merely because you want them too.

Now as to the threads purpose, I assume, it means: concerning or related to the Drones, no. If you feel constantly under the pressure of that particular one well what can I say. What pickle facial, do you have an image of it! I feel the art(?) associate withe the Drones or their projections will come and go for a long time.

By Reasoner
I'm almost afraid to post this...

Aren't we all allowed to drink the saki and spout off at least once a year? Perhaps I've imbibed too much recently and need to be cut off, but...

There's always been a couple of fascinating things about the drones. One of the key things is how elaborate and how diffusive it was. Was it planned? Was it elaborately created by people on earth? And why is drone art so... well it's fairly specific isn't it. For such a long time, I associated it with gears all interconnected like parts to a machine.

But what if the purpose isn't to specify parts to a machine, but different interlocking parts - parts to a process? Don't they all look like what alien warlocks might use as conjuration circles and nodes? What if the whole drone conspiracy is more meant to be a hidden drone message? To convey a hidden meaning beyond standard aliens or government covert agenda? Maybe the drone message is a warning on what you believe in. That the conspiracy blankets itself as other conspiracies, and that those true powers-that-be are content to allow the public to dwell in misconception.

If we look at the drone art offered less as schematics and more as rituals and incantations... it points to the "alien other" as being more demonic in origin. Perhaps the hoaxers' purpose was never for monetary profit or notoriety at all. One cannot overtly go on about demonic infestation on earth. Even saying it could invite doom on the speaker, since they aren't governed by space or distance. Where could you hide?

And when you think that the end of the world keeps getting bandied about by nutjobs and false prophets, who does that hinder? The masses. They are lulled into false comfort. Believers in benevolent aliens? False comfort. That the government is bad? Fixate on that, and perhaps you fix the government instead of spending time fixing yourself, preparing for tribulation. Tribulation becomes something like a scriptural footnote when the end of the world has come and gone so many times before without effect. Those few who do preach the aliens are really demons tend to be a few screws loose themselves.

Maybe they aren't the demons that we can understand or know, but perhaps the ancients had some inkling to what they were about, but being ancients, they lacked the ability to convey it accurately to future generations. All they could do is mention "demons" and leave a code of laws to govern the peoples bodily and in spirit, and make note of a time of reckoning as a warning.

Perhaps there is some gate we need to be aware of, a philosophical or metaphysical gate that is what the Christian bible talks about the path to Heaven being narrow with a small gate and the road to hell being wide and paved with good intentions and probably a gleaming and attractive gate. That would mean rapture is the occurrence of the closing of the gate (to Heaven), and once fully closed, these alien demon things have us. How long might that be? What would predicate the closing of the gate? Would it be of the demons' choosing? So when they feel they can finally seal the deal and net the most souls? Or is it when heaven decides, the last souls worthy are "written in the book" and the gate activates? Might that be sooner than later? A century? A decade?

Sorry. Just musing. It's an interesting different angle. I think the drone art sort of all of the sudden jogged this subliminal inkling out of me. I kept thinking how they always appeared as a sort of schematic but in the way modeling languages operate, based on class and behavior, not just operation. Also the symbols. Instead of thinking of them as alien symbols, I thought of them in terms of magical symbols. Eh. Maybe I should have posted this instead in the Angels section.

Very nicely said

Arthur Reyes

Seeking Balance
Painting on Lifes canvass

“Most of the members are older men, and they amass ridiculously large collections of unbuilt kits,” he said. “Finally they realize that even if they drop everything they’ll never get to them all, so they sell some of them for significantly less than they paid.”

And Reyes reaps the benefits.

He began building models at about age 5, but his interest waned in high school. “A lot of boys start that way. But a few, after college, realize that they used to have some hobbies and they’re looking for a way to relax and have fun.”

Reyes returned to plastic models when he was in graduate school and continues to make time for them every week.

Professor Arthur Reyes in a meditative pose
Dr. Reyes credits his daily meditation routine with helping unclutter his mind. He advises UTA's Meditation Club, which begins each meeting with 20 minutes of Tai Chi.

“It’s very relaxing. Plus, I think it’s actually very primitive, this connection we have with our hands and our eyes and our minds. We have to build stuff. It’s part of us.”

However, this engineer doesn’t just throw plastic parts together in a random fashion. Calling on his computer expertise, he carefully monitors the progress of each project.

“My method is based on a software development method named Personal Software Process,” he explained. “I make a detailed plan using Microsoft Project, and I keep track of the actual duration of each task. I use these data to track my productivity. My goal in the hobby is to produce models that can win prizes in ‘stock’ contest categories (that is, build-the-kit-as-it-came-out-of-the-box) as fast as possible.”

According to his records, Reyes spends an average of 12 hours on each model. But he continually strives to work faster and better.

“My own challenge to myself is to be more disciplined and productive,” he said. “What’s important to me is actually completing a kit.”

The raw material varies from kit to kit. Some, Reyes calls “just awful,” while the precision pieces in others can lead to models of museum quality. Every kit requires an eye for painstaking detail and a painter’s steady hand.

Dr. Reyes is working to create a family legacy with his hobby, encouraging his two daughters to build kits and to create their own paint schemes. “My main goal in sharing this with my daughters is to teach them three things — follow instructions, calm down and work on a project to completion.

“I’ve actually been very surprised at how happy this simple activity makes me,” he added. “There’s a tremendous satisfaction in just finishing.”

Reyes also finds satisfaction in another calming activity, daily meditation, and he serves as faculty adviser to the UTA Meditation Club. The group meets weekly and begins each session with 20 minutes of the Chinese discipline Tai Chi.

“Then we sit down and we chant,” he said. “This is something foreign to Western culture, but it calms your mind and cuts down on the crazy jumble that’s usually running through your mind. Plus there’s evidence indicating that meditation offers a lot of health benefits.

“I just can’t get over how good it feels.”

He credits meditation with bringing tremendous benefits to his life.

“I stopped being a jerk. I used to insist on having my own way all the time. Living with that as your life goal is exhausting.”

How does he integrate his modeling hobby, meditation and an academic career with a busy family life?

“When I work on plastic models, they consume my full attention,” he said. “When I meditate, I empty my mind of everything else. When I’m at UTA, I give UTA my day, and when I’m at home, I give my time to my family.

“The thing that ties it all together is my desire for balance.”


And you did Arthur.It was the world out of balance you left behind...I always wanted you to be the Isaac of our story..But you stood out too brilliantly towering above the others
and when you left us..It really did seem a darker place.
But you left behind and touched so many ..a chance..to make it brighter than you could have ever imagined..and more importantly..make it right..

Drone Art That Saves Lives

Drone Art That saves people!
http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2012-08/17/drone-delivery-3d-printing
User Image
A non-profit called ReAllocate is developing an art project -- called Blue Sky -- for Burning Man that will scan people and 3D-print a model of them before delivering it by drone using GPS tracking.

Visitors to ReAllocate's dome -- made out of shipping containers -- at the notoriously creative festival will be invited to strike a pose in a photobooth featuring a Kinect camera. This will capture the person's 3D image, which will then be converted into a 3D file that can be printed by a Cubify 3D printer.

The person can then leave the dome, taking with them a GPS transponder. Once their miniature figurine is finished, it will placed in a container hanging from a multicopter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The drone will then track the GPS signal from that person's transponder down. When it is close by, it will trigger an alarm on the transponder. When the person looks up, they will see the quadrocopter descending and will be able to take their sculpture. All ReAllocate asks for in return is that the people contribute to a documentary about the project and that they return the GPS device.

I think, the whole drone hoax was part of the spying program. The task was: Will the ARC be able to identify the source of the hoax? Will humanity accept spying drones above their heads? Will the US military defend the people from a corrupt system?

Since we are from different nations we can not share the same patriotism. So I would reason, that we also can not share the same unpatriotism.

The US government makes it clear every few days, that it is not patriotic to collaborate with other countries. So every collaboration with me makes you unpatriotic.

In our country, patriotism became a matter of guilt and shame during the Nazi aera. So I grew up with a big portion of mistrust against everyone, who showed a special kind of patriotism. You can say, I was educated to be unpatriotic.

So yes, we are both unpatriotic anyway. Still I hope you had a great Independence Day and that Roland Emmerich's ufos did not appear (again).

Luckily he was rescued from the jungle.
I thought he died like Michael Rockefeller, who disappeared in New Guinea and one day the drones would find a dead body without head.

I see, that two of our contacts are befriended with him. One of them disappeared himself for a long time. I hope, that does not mean anything Rockefeller-like.

All others seem to be well and happy.

Sometimes I think we want to hear the laughter of the Gods then we are
comforted we are not alone..we then see a light or a blur ..
an alien will do in the meantime..

After the gods having themselves laughed to death one can think
only in terms of emptiness of the now extinct man. Man without
gods exists only as an option, as a thinking program. A program
certainly which substitutes anthropological philosophy. Thus
Talberg represents a vision in history, a historical singularity

Ever penetrating the envelope of creation itself our resident artisans of Leviathan return home to the Red Room..exhausted but not undaunted by their long climactic journey unpeeling layer after layer of the great cosmic onion of reality. Certainly their latest creation challenges how we look at the mundane and innocuous , to pause and reflect on the possibilities and veer in new directions from our endless meandering marches of mediocrity.

Let us humbly bow to warners film and award winning Matrix code
User Image


User Image
User Image
n the film, the code that comprises the Matrix itself is frequently represented as downward-flowing green characters. This code utilizes a custom typeface designed by Simon Whiteley,[29] which includes mirror images of half-width kana characters and Western Latin letters and numerals.[32] The color green reflects the green tint commonly used on early monochrome computer monitors.[33] Lynne Cartwright, the Visual Effects Supervisor at Animal Logic, supervised the creation of the film's opening title sequence, as well as the general look of the Matrix code throughout the film, in collaboration with Lindsey Fleay and Justen Marshall.[29] The portrayal resembles the opening credits of the 1995 Japanese cyberpunk film, Ghost in the Shell, which had a strong influence on the Matrix series (see below).[32] It was also used in the subsequent films, on the related website, and in the game The Matrix: Path of Neo, and its drop-down effect is reflected in the design of some posters for the Matrix series. The code received the Runner-up Award in the 1999 Jesse Garson Award for In-film typography or opening credit sequence.[29]

Int21 was a collaborative geek project very prolific over the course of 2004. The band members exchanged spit samples and recordings via FTP and all lyrics were randomly generated using Google.

others were not receptive to this musical genious..
Hello, I'm having some problems getting int21 function 9 working
edit tongueeople tend to forget that most artist musicians don't work, can't work..and dare I say it..won't work...

its common knowledge to even dolts..that they must be handled carefully

Interrupt 21 function 0C was handled in protected
mode interrupt handler but it must also be handled
in real mode.


In other words...take the gloves off and tell them to get a real job!!

EarthFiles source:
January 6, 2014 - Nvidia PR “Confession” Hollow without Close-up Details of How and When Chualar Pattern Made and Why Destroyed.

According to current Nvidia PR, a team took two weeks to create the Chualar chip pattern (with the help of Echelon Security) while the genuinely mysterious crop formation phenomenon since the 1980s has emerged overnight and out of thunderstorms.


Chualar, California barley pattern produced great buzz
since it “emerged” Saturday morning, December 28, 2013. Nvidia
CEO Jen-Hsun Huang ended his 90-minute promotion of a new mobile
phone chip TEGRA K1 192-core Super Chip at the beginning of the
Las Vegas Consumer Electric Show, Jan. 5, 2014, with the above aerial
and these words: “This is a confession. Tegra K1 (new mobile chip with
192 central cores) is impossibly advanced - like out of this world.
It's practically made by aliens!” Image is screen grab
from CES live web broadcast, Las Vegas

in our case..not just sat back..actively witheld direct evidence to this very day..and continued on..cooperated years after with the Oltissis escapade..

Its our fault for the sake of being entertained suspend disbelief , and substitute common sense with artificially butter flavored popcorn.

But this is an Art thread ..and its water under the bridge..

The Ufo community like the Gamers (the latter who imo..tend to be more pragmatic or realistic..at least discerning.. in these matters) ..help spread the buzz..So I dont think they have many other venues..so freely or cheaply available and even demanding for a thrill no different than the housewife picking up a tabloid at the supermarket..
Its just the way it is..

UCB is the Drudge Report of Ufology..it doesnt do like EF..it has no axe to grind. no damage control or like c2c cut your phone call if caught.....

Z, I think the CGI gets a lot more praise than it deserves. Anyone who knew anything about CGI at the time pretty much had the same reaction to the photos: "Oh, please!" It took the rest of us a while to get up to speed, even with the generous and able help of quite a few practitioners of the art, but we got there. We are indebted to them.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but the real reason I stayed with this, the reason I'm still here, is that I want to see the perps publicly outed and suitably humiliated. The trickery is only going to get more sophisticated, and I want to see examples made of the people behind the Isaac baloney. Who knows if it will ever happen? I'm sure we made things uncomfortable for some of the low level participants, and I'm also sure that those particular jerks will not pursue a career in wanton, profit driven deception, but the real power behind the mess is still at large.

That was a popular idea.

Support of the scam stopped right at the point you'd expect an executive to pull the plug after the whole thing ran off the rails. From there on out, it was surly and bitter damage control only.

The Zithar Songs Lyrics

When a zither starts to play
You'll remember yesterday
In it's haunting strain
Vienna lives again
Free and bright and gay
In your mind a sudden gleam
Of a half forgotten dream
Seems to glimmer when you hear The Third Man Theme

Once again there comes to mind
Someone that you left behind
Love that somehow didn't last
In that happy city of the past
Does she still recall the dream
That rapture so supreme
When first she heard the haunting Third Man Theme?

Carnivals and carousels and ferris wheels and parasols
The Danube nights, the dancing lights again will shine
The zither's sweet refrain
Keeps swirling in your brain
Like new May wine
Strauss waltzes, candle-glow
And the laughter of long ago
Fill the magic chords and make it seem like today

You never knew that you could be
Enchanted by a melody
The years will never drive it out
You don't know why
It's something you can't live without
You hear it in the twilight hush
And in the morning traffic rush
A song that's always new
In your heart a part of you
Oh, shines so brightly when you hear The Third Man Theme

When a zither starts to play
You'll remember yesterday
In it's haunting strain
Vienna lives again
Free and bright and gay
In your mind a sudden gleam
Of a well remembered dream
Seems to glimmer when you hear The Third Man Theme

Once again there comes to mind
Someone that you left behind
Love that somehow didn't last
In that happy city of the past
Does she still recall the dream
That rapture so supreme
When first she heard the haunting Third Man Theme?

Carnivals and carousels and ferris wheels and parasols
The Danube nights, the dancing lights again will shine
The zither's sweet refrain
Keeps swirling in your brain
Like new May wine
Strauss waltzes, candle-glow
And the laughter of long ago
Fill the magic chords and make it seem like today

You never knew that you could be
Enchanted by a melody
The years will never drive it out
You don't know why
It's something you can't live without
You hear it in the twilight hush
And in the morning traffic rush
A song that's always new
In your heart a part of you
Oh, shines so brightly when you hear The Third Man Theme

Good to see something happening here.

I'm kind of surprised Festus hasn't shown up. He was never one to pass up free cake. I think he's a little bit scared of Tomi though. wink

As for LMH's current delusions, I heard that she was at the Ozark UFO conference recently, carrying on about the latest developments, showing slides of the Chad confection, and so on.

I wish DrDil were here..he tried joining the RAF some time ago as a pilot...but couldn't cut the mustard as he was colorblind..He wanted to see the UFOs for himself he told me, instead they assigned him to work the hangars washing planes, painting them, that sort of thing. Every single time he would wave those flags for guiding the planes on the tarmac it was a heartache..a missed opportunity to see the real deal. Some of his fellow mates would rib him and say they did..and he would be like a puppy..all eyes and ears. He would draw what they told him..after a while..he gave up..completed his tour disillusioned..and turned to organic gardening. When the issue of the Dragonfly drones came up..and the Hangar pix the most famous pictures in ufology..no one could touch him on his knowledge of the tarmac..not to mention experimental craft..having spent almost every waking moment on every kind of layout there was... Just that portion alone began the unraveling of the first layer of many in the Drone..saga. When Nick the desk jockey came out..Dr Dil was there waiting..with Breathtaking results..and he made short work of him with surgical precision.... he had come across dozens of these types in the service....you never know when just a little seemingly insignificant thing you do day in and day out will come in handy to reveal a truth or a fact later ..
In a hypnosis session at a Rendelsham AFB clinic, quite the fad in those days.. I was fortunate enough to be present..He was asked Michael ..what do you really want to be when you grow up? He answered I just want be like Billy Meirs and fly a ufo, almost in a whisper but left the matter in no uncertain terms.. ..and his second choice to play the tuba at the London symphony.
Truth be told I was almost in tears.. cry
Thats how close we were in the ARC and why he was chosen..
He certainly has the green thumb..and grows humongous non GMO dills and squash..and they are the talk of the town the name of which, for national security reasons, I cannot divulge for now

I know it's (a little) off topic.. cool

But the thing about the double-slit experiment is that the particles behave differently when they are being observed.
How do they know they are being observed?
Without observation they act as a wave of particles, with observation they behave as we expect them to.

Further reaches into this experiment have been even stranger. Data collected has disappeared when part of a trickier experiment is devised. Time sequencing changes. They change the past to fit the results.. They know the future of being observed and respond accordingly. This is the quantum world of our existence.
We are "it" too.. But the observer is required for any of this.

Philosophy that matters.. smiley

How did I manage to miss the last few pages of this thread? Some great stuff here. You really had me going there, Sys, with your reminisces on the olden days. I was sitting here thinking, "I don't recall any of that. Sysco must have had some fascinating conversations with Dil some time or other. Maybe after that one plenary session where that gal showed up claiming to be Tomi." Whew! That was some conference, eh? Whoever that woman was, she had sure done her homework. It was a shame she was undone so quickly by Dil and yourself, making up that phony episode she tried to pretend to know all about. Some of the boys were pretty put out that she got scared off so soon (another obvious sign she was an imposter!) and truth be told, I would not have minded if we had all just humored her. Of course she probably was a spy anyway. They're everywhere!

but I am certain. you can meet and very likely exceed them

I reviewed the charter..we would need a verifiable picture and address, not a stick figure drawn into a dress as the last candidate attempted, along with a modest enrollment fee..(to cover the cost of a credit check and automatic membership into our Sunshine Club entitling you to a free Tshirt..coffee mug.etc...)

Also..written proof of ability to objectively critique in 500 words or less a major ufology Icon..like LMH

As a general rule I never join any club that would have me as a member. Unless, of course, you were to make me your ARC High Pristess.

The ritual would be to make all of you listen to 5 hours of Chairman Bernanke's College Lecture Series:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3fFg8XIS0k

While contemplating your delusions and paranoid misgivings about the Fed being a force for evil, you will write 500 words or more about how great it is to have a separation of State and Monetary Policy.

Next, after this cleansing, I shall ask each of you to inhale and not bogart the burning stick of attitude adjustment. I will then anoit each one of you with my own personal homemade speghetti sauce and tabouli. While you eat your anoitment I will attempt to guage your worthiness as you practice defense maneuvers against Felix.

Should you survive this blood letting, I will then accept your gracious elevation of me as your worthy matriarchal ruler and expect each of you to dress accordingly.. grin

Um, well. Ah. There is that. shocked But I'm pretty sure Captain Sysco has the only key to that particular filing cabinet. We'll have to figure out what to do about that, along with possibly making some changes to the figurehead on the Admiral's yacht, which we inherited. Tomi's $100 monthly dues would help with the maintenance on that old tub, too.

I had not really thought through my nomination. I've been reminded privately that I should not post anything on the interwebz while on a bender (where's the fun in that?), and I can see why some of my peers thought that was the case. It was the wrong bag of gummi bears though, and not booze. Legalized weed has some consequences yet to be fully mapped. It's nice that we've done away with that hypocritical bogus prescription aspect of recreational use. Damn gummi bears need to come with a warning though!

Anyway, we'll have to vote on the induction eventually, and meanwhile my main reason for making the motion has been effective: I just thought it would make the ARC considerably less moribund. I can see a new office being created, High Priestess, which of course would be ceremonial. Even Sysco can't get us to do anything that requires much effort

Maybe what drew you to the drones besides a good fight or mystery Tomi was the art and design..so..arabesque..as one person put it...that connection to your roots.. speaking of connections..Purr described herself as an immigrant or partial..I wonder f the two of you share some common ancestry or sometin..recall an old employer I shan't name..who were arabic and Dutch based.Even Klat was half Dutch..I'ts been said we don't come down here alone but in groups.or so some circles believe.Is it possible? smiley

Welcome aboard Dragoon!I have no doubt this had those elements of life and death incorporated and even the colors on the avatar are used in the rituals. Lets not forget the design of the crafts which resembled oil lamps. I doubt death was the message for an art collective project used on a laptop. I would argue Life..A light in the darkness...the oneism of all cultures. particulary if one is opening non traditional markets which the people I mentioned previously were at the time. The first arabic keyboard was used by Dell that year, if I am not mistaken.

Dragonfly formation celebrates artistic collaboration, impermanence

By Greg Bolt
The Register-Guard
Published: Saturday, October 15, 2005

Like clouds against a summer-blue sky or a dew-coated flower, Daniel Dancer's art is here and then it's gone.

It was here Friday, on a lawn at Lane Community College where more than 100 people and a pile of old clothes were momentarily transformed into a brilliant, quarter-acre dragonfly. And after 10 minutes it was just a lawn again.

"One lesson I think humans need to grasp is impermanence," said Dancer, a Hood River artist who paints with people and uses grass as a canvas. "One of the secrets to living a happy life is to embrace impermanence and live every single moment as if it is our last, because we never know when that last one is going to come."

That's only part of the message Dancer tries to convey as he travels the country committing temporary acts of art, usually using schoolchildren as his paint. This time, though, it mostly was participants in the Oregon Bioneers Conference, a gathering of scientists, environmentalists and social activists brainstorming ways to boost sustainable lifestyles.
advertisement

Dancer calls it "Art for the Sky," images of salmon, bighorn sheep, flowers, birds and other scenes composed with masses of children whose colored shirts serve as paint. The pictures are all done on a large scale that can only be appreciated when seen from above, much like the mysterious Nazca Lines carved into the desert plains of Peru that inspired Dancer as a youth.

The idea that the images can best be seen from above also is part of Dancer's art. It's a way to show people - children in particular - that sometimes you have to take a few steps back from your own life to really understand what's going on.

"It's about seeing the big picture," he said. "It's using our imagination to rise above our problems and make sense of them and discover the solutions that live in that big-picture zone."

Typically, Dancer spends a week working with students at an elementary school to design the artwork. He encourages teachers to connect the project to lessons in art, music, math, history and science by exploring the creature or object to be created and how it interacts with its environment.

This time he spent three days with the Bioneers doing workshops on his art and how it blends with history and environment. He often has participants use organic or recycled clothing; Friday's event used clothes donated by The Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul and Goodwill.

On the final afternoon of the project, participants troop out to a field or playground and form themselves into their chosen image, which Dancer first outlines with nontoxic paint and occasionally fills in with accents made from clothing and other material.

They hold their positions long enough for Dancer to photograph them from a fire department ladder truck, a bucket truck or, as was the case Friday, a handy rooftop.

"Children just love this," Dancer said as he sorted through clothes for Friday's project. "There's so much joy and excitement. They'll remember it all their lives."

The lesson that life is here and then it's gone or the value of taking a larger view aren't the only lessons he hopes participants come away with. It's also about teamwork and how people working together can do things they could never do alone.

"We can't succeed in life without collaborating with other people," he said. "This art does not work if we don't all collaborate together with one goal in mind."

As fleeting as Dancer's work is, it doesn't disappear entirely when the project is over. The school or sponsor gets a large print and a CD of the image to remember the occasion, and it's added to the gallery on Dancer's Web page, www.inconcert withnature.com.

Dancer hopes participants take something else away with them: an appreciation for Nature's own artwork.

"It's a way to give thanks for the beauty we see every day," he said. "It's teaching us to create something beautiful and then let it go."

During those epic times that was hard to do for many, like myself.

Now that is a scary picture and thought. What does it mean?

2 male figures: Are they levitating like the trees and house? Why?

Is one a MIB and the other a MIG? Is that a mask or helmet on the MIG? Are those boots under the pants leg? What's his boot size and the material of the clothes? It looks metallic.

Is the MIG holding a cell phone to his ear and pointing some device at the house and making it float or is the craft doing it?

What is in the right hand of the MIB?

What's that circle doing on the craft in the sky?


These are important questions. Answering them may give more insight to the UFO enigma then all the research done over the past 5 decades. Yet, everyone is silent. shocked

I would say..for the first time ...we have been given a glimpse of Jaque Vallees infamous CONTROL cool My friend and colleague..No accident from March onwards these phenomena , inexplicable to average laymen, but not inexplicable to us, of course..suddenly appear. Some sort of galactic conjunction like bubbles touching..takes place and voila they appear or can be seen on the other side.
For the first time Ed ..I get a sense of well needed closure though for those on the other side of the bubble..they might call it..disclosure. wink

In the states and then I was in 4-H. I think I was a girl scout too at one point because I remember selling Girl Scout cookies. Maybe that was while I was a Brownie.

Thanks To Zetar Drwu and Purr the topic of Ezekiel brought to mind Isaac a biblical name and Leviathan, also a biblical name. I believe they had more than a mere interest in the reverse engineering aspect and sought to impress on us the effect of an Ezekiel or Daniel type vision or visitation event on an observer. In the Isaac narrative we are told the workings functioned as if by magic..due to comparatively simian intelligence of us to the ETs messengers. Certainly our missed Leviathan who championed the drones for nearly 6 years used monkey the term continually both physically and spiritually.
The connection to Kabbalah and merkobah ship in Ezekial is too broad to go into here. Both Ezekials and Isaacs ships and portions of the LAP allude to the mysterious power the four winged compounded eye dragonfly referenced drone..a power which can only be understood in terms of mental projections, inner vision, prayer, and in leviathans own words..imagination...The math from golden ratios to gerimatric 666 cleverly used by Isaac in his Fox Tree explanation is there..F is 6 O is 6 and X is 6 was there ..This in no way denigrates the power of the mind..as it is what is responsible for turning and manipulating useless matter into something useful..and nearly Godlike..
Its noteworthy whitely and LMH and On the fence attempted via the Ted incident - drone insurgency to use the dream trance states though we all know..historically..That Ezekiel was better prepared to receive his.
anywho
I will post some art from Lev and Isaac and Others to bolster perspective on this..

The pattern is a form, template, or model (or, more abstractly, a set of rules) which can be used to make or to generate things or parts of a thing, especially if the things that are created have enough in common for the underlying pattern to be inferred, in which case the things are said to exhibit the pattern. Pattern matching is the act of checking for the presence of the constituents of a pattern. The detection of underlying patterns is called pattern recognition. The question of how different patterns emerge is accomplished through the work of the scientific field of pattern formation. Patterns are also related to repeated shapes or objects, sometimes referred to as elements of the series. Some patterns (for example, many visual patterns) may be directly observable through the senses.

Monads(holon)are Deities created to be companions on your every day journey. there are several of them. They will appear to you on your dreams. You will mimic the good feeling that the creatures (monads) are oozing. every creature has been programed with virtue and impeccability, it takes you into an spiral that will be the first step to a brand new day of evolution in you brain.

beyond the niche

http://www.musicxray.com/xrays/77706
I rather liked that..

Dragonfly Lingo is an electronic industrial act, started in 2009 by the music and film sound engineer, sound producer, and musician Mitia Wexler in Rouen, France.

The project started with an idea to take the pieces of dialogue from film and pair it to the music that each excerpt inspired. With time, the Dragonfly Lingo moniker expanded beyond one concept album paying homage to the silver screen gems.

Dragonfly Lingo’s music is distinctive by its cinematic feel, elaborate soundscapes and a seamless blend of the electronic and organic instruments, and field recordings.

The first release, Morningside (2010), is drawn from the following LP Offscreen. Featuring remixes of the track inspired by Phantasm cult horror series by artists of styles spanning from ebm of Virgo Intacta and dark ambient of Interzone Inc, to progressive house of Ivan Spell, 2-step garage of SoulSeekah, and minimal experiments by AKA, the EP set the tone to Dragonfly Lingo’s ambition to go beyond a particular niche. Morningside was released under Creative Commons license and is available for free download from Dragonfly Lingo’s website at http://www.dragonflylingo.com.

Flux (2011) came about as a collaboration with the visual artist Leroy Roper. The three pieces of the EP, revolving around the life and metamorphosis, are each accompanied by a flip-book animation-type video featuring photo sessions inspired by the music.

The LP Offscreen (2011), which was at the source of Dragonfly Lingo, is built around the idea of taking certain bits of dialogue from a given movie and putting them on music

Based in Portland, Oregon, Kal Cobalt writes fiction and nonfiction about consciousness, sexuality, food, robots, and whatever else the muse
http://realitysandwich.com/320/drones_and_caret_sightings_online/

Thending for the drone drama was perhaps encapsulated by Kal best..
As an armchair visual effects geek, I was stunned by the complete believability of the fabrication. We have become quite proficient in imitating life.

Ironically, it is decades of hard work in the entertainment industry that have led to the current state of confusion. In the late 1990s/early 2000s, the Matrix trilogy spearheaded a new level of photorealism in visual effects — one that the trilogy's visual effects supervisor, John Gaeta, recognized as potentially problematic. "I wrote a letter to President Clinton that went unanswered," he told WIRED Magazine's Steve Silberman, "in which I said, 'I am one of the few people who happens to know that the threshold is being broken right now in creating virtual humans[.]' […T]hese techniques will be pushed way beyond providing entertainment into esoteric scientific and military usages. There will be a lot of blurred lines in the next few decades."

Quantum physics seems to sometimes require a Zen-like acceptance of paradoxical things which are simultaneously true. Yet the frantic tone of the "drone" debate in particular indicates that we are still desperate for binary answers and frightened by the blurring of the lines. Accepting the multiple possibilities inherent in the "drone" images or other unknowns is not an option for most humans at this time. Faced with an image not immediately explainable, neutrality is almost impossible.

If we are so uncomfortable with blurred lines, why have we gone to such lengths to gain the technology necessary to obfuscate formerly clear demarcations between fantasy and reality? Everything from cyberspace to virtual reality suggests that we pine for a confusion of "truths." Perhaps we are, somewhat unwittingly, leading ourselves down the path necessary to become familiar and comfortable with multiple realities.

In many ways, experience is now the only authority — everything that is not directly experienced may be altered, faked, or tweaked. Then again, thinking along this line for long leads to the question of whether experience, too, can be faked. Certainly history is filled with eyewitnesses who did not see what they thought they saw. Ultimately, we already choose the reality we live in by selecting what to see and what not to see, what to believe and what not to believe. Whether you live in a world where alien drones monitor the population or a world where manipulative hoaxers maliciously spread false images is, for now, determined solely by your choice of belief.

I think it is you who is missing a few gears here sys.
Like I tried to tell you over a pm... which you haven't responded to, I earlier in the evening been shown an old AC motor repair manual by the late VirgilCrow..
on Facebook. It had the design of what that crop circle that looks like the drone stuff had. I could see immediately that the crop circle stuff and drone motif was taken from schematics of AC motor designs.

Then when I did google searches, I saw the vintage motors and it was obvious that these old pictures must have been used as composites to make the design for the roto rooter in the drone saga. And that is it.
At least I should share this with everyone not just you in PM. smiley

Can you share some more on the Virgil Crow character? Last I recall there was all sorts of speculation about him(?) outside the artwork i.e., body builder, limo driver and whatever. My brain never figured it out.

On a bit of an aside and some of my ramblings:
I can see the possible inspiration from motors, coils, flux fields etc. to some drone elements. It can awe those not familiar with the science or technology but it is well known to any engineering student. Having a background myself in electrical engineering and knowing dozens of engineers I have to say that none of them place this stuff (including Tesla) on some mystical level. Ideas about this technology predated and parallel Tesla. It follows a progression of innovation not uncommon to our human nature.
Re: The Art and Aesthetics of Les Drones
Post by tommi01 on Jan 15th, 2016, 10:29am

He is an artist. That is why I used the word motif. It became so clear to me, when he showed me that illustration in this 1940's or so AC Motor Repair manual that the design that is circular with the extending bands coming out the various degrees of the circle were actually circuits that are placed outside the center as that depiction of Tesla's shows.
The late VC uses a lot of these older illustrations to achieve his own stylized designs all centered I suppose on the force of energy.

So.. energy I suppose is the common denominator in the work centered around the drones based on the fundamentals coming from AC motor designs. Especially the d*mn roto rooter.

I suppose the late VC has risen into a new personna. He is getting ready for an exhibition and launch of a project he has been working on for years. So he was showing me the art and then when I asked him if the circular design in the center of one of those pieces was based on Pi, as I had heard in that talk that sys posted by LMH, (she was saying that the crop circle was told to her by some professor as being based on Pi).. so thinking it might be, as numbers were all around the circular design that VC had done.. He said no.... it's an AC motor. I said What? Then he showed me an illustration in that old repair book that is just like the d*mn circle in that cropcircle that LMH compared to the drone designs..

So.. that is how it all happened.

The late VC is a nice, slightly eccentric, family man who lives a lot of his mental time in theta, sober he says.. cool

Arrgh... the old link is not the one I wanted to post. Been having a hard time getting it to show the right search to all of you.

we can find tens of thousands of machine arts and blue prints of same..we can also find examples of organic and human self organiztion mimmicry from amphitheaters to burning man exhibits
User Image with many exhibits employing ac dc flow..
But it was Carat the international ad agency that pulled Dell/aw and Warner Fox SC terminators together by contract and like Nvidia years after..used the influencers LMH Coasttocoast and Whitley for Buzz...There is no genius in any of this..it is what it is.The business of life and life of business tied at the hip as AJ was with Corel at the same time.

IMO.. because we are talking about science, tech and energy, the drone motif was based on schematics like these and the roto rooter too!

It makes sense. If anything makes sense out of the drone saga and its whole motif, this does.

ED
I can see the possible inspiration from motors, coils, flux fields etc. to some drone elements. It can awe those not familiar with the science or technology but it is well known to any engineering student. Having a background myself in electrical engineering and knowing dozens of engineers I have to say that none of them place this stuff (including Tesla) on some mystical level. Ideas about this technology predated and parallel Tesla. It follows a progression of innovation not uncommon to our human nature.


Our machines are an extension of us..and Indeed some folx not familiar with machines and flux fields are easily influenced by them..even cargo cults and why eventually these things appear as eye candy sculptures and exhibits..usually useless except as to behold..or as a decoration on a laptap or even marys pocketbook at Truthfalls , album covers and even Tatoos

And here too:

IMO (and the late VC too) an artist like himself took years, using old wiring schematic and AC old ref images and schematic drawings to base many aspects of the whole drone motif on..

And that is where the roto rooter came from too. It is a composite of very old AC motors.

An obsessive inspired artist with a lot of powerful kit and some resources .. that's how.

Not to mention familiarity with old AC-motor repair manuals ...

A background with a father employed in engineering or electrical design who liked UFO's wouldn't have hurt..
he might be following his father's passions but expressing them in art. Who knows?

Obsessive and brilliant and talented. But who we still don't know.

But I'm sure this is the basis of the motif. Old energy schematic drawings.

No, I'm just using armchair psychology.. obviously the man who did this had to have had some inspiration in electrical engineering and probably had a father who was interested in ufo's so he could pull this off in his mind.. some kind of background. Plus lots of money and expensive equipment as a resource as well.

Just trying to figure out what would drive an artist to do it.. family background (and it's usually the father who has an interest in ufo's that allows children to be cool about such matters) and a science background and artistic influence had to be part of it.

You think that the whole north west of the states was in on this conspiracy..

It's not so. Shirley I'm sure was just looking for her fabricated 15 mins of fame along with a lot of others spoofing the matter and playing it for all they could get, commercially or for their personal reasons, like spoofing LMH and the whole UFO community (industry).

But I believe it was an artistic creation by an obsessed artist or art group who was/were using A-C old schematic drawings to pull concepts from. Science fiction made live. They hired the players they needed under non disclosure agreements too.. or they played the parts themselves..

Or else it is real. You decide cool

Spoofing the UFO community is just like Nvidia did..dont you remember that chip based cropcircle..elements like LMH and outlets need spoofers to keep them alive..its their business..even when the matter comes all to naught..LMH c2c and other outlets would be nothing without the spoofing...its symbiotic..the movie makers and PC absolutley need every market they can tap..you know this..cattention ..catchy..then gone..like way of the hoola hoop..If I did anything on this thread is show the many sources of inspiration..whoever did it..cant take credit..the storyline was there before it..the designs as well..there is nothing unique sadly tommi..nothing..thats why they dont come forward..it would be an embarrasment. cool

I hope I've proven by now at least that every crop circle that looks like the schematic drawings of old AC motors were based on old A-C motor physics.

I hope that at least is obvious. What astounds me is that LMH and her "professors" hadn't realised this before.

On second thought, it is ridiculous for me to be astounded anymore by LMH or anyone else concerning this matter.. lol

and another thing.. the artist or art group had to be in Cuptertino area, they used the facilities I think of a big company like Apple perhaps.. moon lighting.. being let in to use the equipment when needed or had access to some high tech background and equipment on the fly, so managment of course wouldn't know anything. Only some paid off employees or security people.

Some big government facilities would have high end equipment for this kind of work too, also access to old documentation on record to be used as the prototype for the manual part of this saga.

Just guessing..

Someone with a lot of money to buy their way through this to get the final product ready for its planned deployment into the media.

Just for the joy of watching it run. Real live art.

I would say the cogs and wheels and pulleys in mans mind live on as long as man. Absent mind..the observer..there is no art. The artist only carries on that before him..what we project as value would be like expecting an amazonian to find interest and value in a monkey lisa or picasso..they might just see it as so most junk..an old antique..so much firewood..nothing to make a connection to the grand ethos ..a product of our own cultural bubble..

What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty!

Art is the highest expression and a lifting of the human spirit above the mere means of survival, it is an expression of man's higher being & state of progress.

It is a time capsule of progress towards man's ever changing growth and expression. It is all we have to elevate us to the gods.

Only man has that capacity to be in a perpetual state of delusion..clothing himself in the sights and sounds of his own reasoning....calling it growth and enlightenment as if communing with a god or gods..whilst nature already has the means to replace him .and his art..and his music....and the animal kingdom would barely notice the absence..much less shed a tear but enjoy the inexplicable feeling of balance and order.

What is art. Art is what each person interpretes it to be, that is what an artist does, or most I think.. leave it up to others to find their own.

While you may view this as a junk pile with junk companies and junk people all conspiring to create an illusion with enough people involved to fill Alaska or Canada, all never saying nuthing..

I see it as an art project of one or a few inspired men that used the AC Motor as a the basis of the motifs..

Big deal.. we are all different. Thankfully!!

But next time you see a crop circle that looks like the drone LAP and LMH says it is based on Pi. You know differently now at least that is an AC motor design.

I dont see an ac dc motor in all circles..merely that one chose a particular design and or its mathematical equivalent..thereare thousands of cropcircles and the symbology is readily available..Its what made Isaacs design less and less unique..

One theory proposed on a website from long long time ago, was that we have a particle beam weapon in outer space. Occasionally they need to calibrate it, in other words focus the beam. In other words to destroy something the particle weapon needs to focus in the same way that a magnifying glass needs to focus to start a fire. These crop circles are just a way to calibrate the particle beam weapon. They simply loaded a design in the particle beam gun and on low power execute the design. If it appears as a crop circle, the gun is properly calibrated. At the same time they are laughing their asses off.

And no way is the design of an AC motor of any particular importance. Some AC motors need a capacitor to start, some don’t, some actually have a low voltage switch, even the motors and drones are brushless AC motors, this is not a big discovery. There are three phases. You can have 110 V single phase up to industrial motors with 440 V and three-phase.

In any case perhaps a red herring at best.

If you can't see the same design in the schematics of the A-C motors that is in the the circle design of the crop circles that are so similar, along with the drone motifs.. I don't know what to say except that online.. here in facebook:

Flip through the pages of this vintage online book of a-c motor repair schematics and you will see, it will be obvious.. the motif of the drones is based on ac electrical system schematics and photos.

When in pre-med school I had to dissect the cat, I found out that the male cats penis has barbs on it. This must be horribly painful to the female puddy, but I guess it ensures that she won’t get away. Now did you know that? Do you ever wonder why they make such noise when their mating? She howls out of pure pain. And the poor meow doesn't even have to smile.

I can't deny the inspiration from vintage electrical sources i.e., tubes, transformers, schematics, etc. in some of this IA art. (image below) A lot of it is retro and consistent with the old days and not awkwardly mixed with later day technology or representations of it. The drone fonts do look a bit out of place as if slapped on as an after thought. My recollection is foggy but I seem to recall it was mentioned or shown the symbols were put on late in the game.

Anyway, back to the AC motors and connection with the drones especially with the Big Basin and inventory parts. I can see how one could make a connection with the rings being similar to motor stators. I can also see how the anti-gravity device had comparisons to pipe line cleaning pigs with ear bud feet.

I believe all of the above has been hinted at during the drone saga. So I do not think you are saying anything new except that you seem convinced you know who did it and what was the prime inspiration for the art and drones(?). You'll have to provide more then the simularities because it's really nothing new IMO.

You arrogant piece of I don't know what.. !
I'm trying to show something and you describe it as "trolling"? Are you out of your head with importance around here? It is you who is arguing with me.

I'm saying that all this "stuff" you are putting up is motif based and comes originally from the old A-C motor designs of yester-year. It makes sense because this was a major leap in electrical usage.

The designs we see today, like the art stuff you have posted is just simply from the schematic designs of motors. And that is what I think the drone motif's are based on as well.

The rotorooter is a dead copy almost, so that's my opinion, I'm sorry you can't see where the original source of inspiration came from, like I can, but that is your loss buddy...

think it is you who is missing a few gears here sys.
Like I tried to tell you over a pm... which you haven't responded to, I earlier in the evening been shown an old AC motor repair manual by the late VirgilCrow..
on Facebook. It had the design of what that crop circle that looks like the drone stuff had. I could see immediately that the crop circle stuff and drone motif was taken from schematics of AC motor designs.


The redundancy is stifling...but I am quite certain it was you that started it off on the wrong foot..I already posted where Mongo mike put himself as Virgil..It is totally irrlelvant that the designs are based on an ac motor because even the motor on a turntable has one and that was one of the allusions...but first and foremost this was passed off..as an anigravity powered drone..yy the principles..thats what you and your crew at Droneteam kept pushing way past 2008. That he took an oil pig also motored and put pipe remote powered pipe pig with pipe benders was exposed long long ago..Now you say he showed you the plan ten years ago ..which would place you one year before the drone..and asked him about a plan that had not come out yet till 9 years ago.
That makes you part of the hoax team..
You hung yourself.

He is talking serious, however pseudo and speculative it is. But the point I'm making is that all these drone and crop circle motif's are taken from A C motor designs brought forward into stylized art designs.

Stylized a-c electrical motors and energy speculation is the basis of the drone motif's.

That was my whole point. My only point.

your point is already known.and duly noted....the drone was proffered as a form of living machine. what do you think we are with our organs intake and exhausts acquring knoweledge...we are no different than the machines we teach to act and think ...the difference being efficiency and speed of that acquisition .we all strive to singularity with whats about us....the free energy is just energy that is anything but free..it costs in fuel..in consumption and repair and replication...whether its a crop circle of a jelly fish or a fractal design..its just an energy form with various distribution...the drone as is using ac drive from auto or electromechnical part was just a communication tool to what would be understood by the lowest comon denmoniitaor...something that would not fly for sale if a jellyfish or frog or one of these

http://fineartamerica.com/featured/isaac-caret-texture-robert-g-kernodle.html
Robert Kernodle Artist Statement

. . .

Using an old word with new meaning, I call my art style FLUIDISM.

Fluidism is fluid flow art. Fluidism is fluid dynamic art. Fluidism is the process of making images in liquid pools, puddles, thin films, trickles, drops or any other containment of liquid where fluid dynamic patterns are the focus.

As I practice fluidism today, I experiment in a netherworld between two media - painting and photography. In simple terms, this means I photograph paintings that cannot exist.

I use sunlight to illuminate very small pools or thin films of various real liquid mixtures. I manipulate the liquid's chemical composition, color, thickness and flow rate. Simultaneously, I chase the sun's path and the liquid's constantly-changing form with a camera to frame and capture fleeting, one-time-only designs.

Nature has an incredible bag of visual tricks to perform in liquids. I'm absolutely obsessed with these. No human intention ever could produce the exact complex, organic intricacies that I observe close-up. These are paintings of the universe BY the universe, where I am a scribe.

Eppur si muove



To survive the test of the seasons you must take to the wisdom of all the masters around you. You must unyielding, stubborn and strong like the rock. You must be wise and as adaptable as the tree. And you must flow as easy as the river. But more than this, you must adopt the greatest lesson life has to teach you, numbers. There is no I, only we. A rock that stands alone, as strong as it may be, will falter and chip away with time until it is but a grain. But together with the help of their brethren one rock can help to form a mountain, vast and immovable to stand against the test of time. Even the countless grains of sand that stand together can hold back the wrath of the thundering sea. A tree that stands alone falls alone to the harsh weather, but together they can form the greatest of forests, stretching as far as the eye can see, protecting each other in many ways. And though a single stream may thin and loose its way, when built with another a river can be forged. An alliance of power and might, standing against even the harshest of heats and strong enough to clear any obstacle that stands in its way. But it doesn't stop there. There are many masters in life that can teach us if we are willing to listen. My heart and ears are open, and my hand is held to you: my ally, my brethren, my friend. © D. Caldarelli

Kudos to OTF for finding theclosest yet if not the original artwork sans letter in the entrance lobby to the Empire state building restored in 2009
The artest Lief H Neandeross
you will see every component of the lap.

The NYT review said it resembled the inner working of a watch. the lens thru wich the artist saw the universe..designing jewlery as well based on super novas.

The only Thing Isaac got right was the huge scale of the designs..which would correspond somewhat to panels the restorers were working with..50 artists took part including from montreal Canada..which I am sure OTF own attraction to art was a happy moment ..Its prob why Lev called that year the end as well for the drone saga..
So The LAP lives forever now..in the halls of the Empire state building

The drones ..look at 212 arent from California..they are from NY
THe original lettering was done in 24 Caret Gold..haha


grin

Isaac correctly estimated the number ofwhich people working on the project about 30 or so which would place him very close to the scene of the work being done.. cool

It was an urban legend," says Jeff Greene, president of EverGreene Architectural Arts. "Preservationists and historians knew that it was there, but the general public had forgotten about it. It was covered for 46 years."

Under A Dropped Ceiling, A Trail Of Grime

A team of artists from his studio started their work to re-create the mural — the original was too badly damaged to restore — by removing a dropped ceiling that had hidden it since the early 1960s.

"The World's Fair was coming to New York, [and] people wanted to modernize," Greene says, explaining that now-perplexing decision. "They wanted to improve the light levels."

(Other landlords made similarly head-smacking calls: "At the Chrysler Building," Greene says, "they just stuck downlights in the Edward Trumbull mural.")

Renovators work to reconstruct the lobby's original ceiling mural, hidden since a 1960s overhaul.
Empire State Building

What EverGreene's team found in the Empire State Building's lobby was in even worse shape. The Celestial Mural had been riddled with hundreds of holes and covered in layers of white paint. As they set about researching their reconstruction, the team stripped small ceiling sections, eventually hitting gold leaf.

Luckily, the metallic surface under the paint had held a small electrical charge — enough to attract dirt in patterns that outlined the design, almost like a magnetic drawing board. Restorers were able to make out suns, moons and stars stylized to look like cogs and gears — a celebration of the Machine Age, designed by artist Leif Neandross.

The renovation has updated more than just the ceiling, of course. Under the sterile UV lights in the old white ceiling, the lobby's gray and pink marble corridors used to look a little like cold roast beef. Now, with warmer lighting, they conjure up a champagne cocktail.

"It looks like they're doing just a wonderful job — and I'm not often one who says that," says Lisa Kersavage, a public policy expert for the Municipal Art Society, a century-old organization that fights for intelligent urban planning, design and preservation.

Kersavage points out that construction-related debris accounts for 60 percent of New York City's waste stream. She wants to change a popular misconception: that it's better to demolish old buildings and erect new green ones.

Opening New Windows On Enviro-Friendly Rehab

"About 55 percent of New York City's building stock was built before 1940," Kersavage says. "And what's important about that is that pre-1940s buildings were built before the era of cheap energy and mechanical systems like air conditioning and heating. So they were built to work with the environment better than later buildings."

Take the Empire State Building's windows.

"Windows tend to be the first thing that people want to change when they want to do an energy retrofit," Kersavage says. "And there's so many ways to repair and improve the efficiency of existing windows instead of throwing them into a landfill. So it's really important in terms of the efficiency — but also in terms of the architectural character of a building."

So the Empire State Building Co. decided to refurbish all 6,500 of its thermopane windows.

"We're taking them out, breaking the seals, inserting a mylar sheath," says Anthony Malkin, who heads the company. "And then we're resealing with krypton argon gas and reinstalling them. All of this will be done without the windows ever leaving the building."

Malkin says the windows and other upgrades will result in a nearly 40 percent energy savings. And he's promised to share the new techniques developed during the restoration.

With the majority of New York's greenhouse gas emissions coming from the construction and operation of buildings, that could help other architectural gems ensure themselves a golden future — whatever the color of their lobby ceilings.

Hi spf,

it's also a little rare that you registered at imageshack on April 3, than started to post photos which are drone related late in May. Since you could not have been waiting for drone, I wonder, if you had other stuff there before or if you registered just in case a drone came by.

Another thing, which should be interesting for HPO - hoax related or not. Since he only has a "demon"-page - letterly - I googled for the sitename, seeing, what he did else. Rarely I found this:

listserv.uni-muenster.de...

It's a German university, but the postings are more than rare. Doesn't look drone related, but rather like a collection of spam mails. Thought, he should know, that his site is mentioned there.

Syd Mead designed his King Kong scene atop there and being the retro phile he is he may have known about the source we see now before the restoration ..copies of which were obtained by evergreen from the Corning Glass museum..
I recall in correspondence with him he stated the allure of the lap designs..its arabesque features..which struck an immediate chord when I read this excerpt from American Heritage..that really does the designs justice and give a real feel for the excitement back then..Depression wide income disparity..movies booming as an escapism valve and served as an equalizer valve between the classes..

http://www.americanheritage.com/content/best-ree-maining-seats?page=show
The famed Roxi theater was another project..

The Kubla Khan of Fiftieth Street summoned Rambusch to talk decorating while the theater was still under construction. The interview was brief. “Harold, I see my Theater like the Inside of a Great Bronze Bowl,” he said, speaking in Roxian Upper Case. “Everything in tones of Antique Gold. Warm. Very, very Rich. Gorgeous.”

Pondering this dictum, Rambusch returned to his studio, and after carefully studying Ahlschlager’s drawings for the interior, asked his associate, Leif Neandross, to make a rendering to submit to Roxy. Their reward was a grunt, a sigh, and a silent embrace. Soon Rambusch artisans were transforming the theater interior into the biggest bronze bowl in Christendom.

Of course, the bronze bowl effect applied only to the burnished metallic color scheme Roxy had specified. Ahlschlager’s breathtaking structure had been inspired, inside and out, by the plateresque—an exuberant grafting of Renaissance details on Gothic forms with fanciful Moorish overtones. The style took its name from the early Spanish plateros —silversmiths whose designs were marked by lavish detail.

It was a little bit of Salamanca on Seventh Avenue.

Rambusch heightened the mood through his use of forests of gold leaf in many tones, deep crimson hangings, and warm amber lights everywhere. Carpeting for the aisles was a problem at first; none of his designs seemed to please Roxy. Finally he was inspired by a Paisley shawl he saw on somebody’s baby grand one day. Roxy was delighted, and miles of Paisley broadloom went rolling up the aisles. The famous Rotunda rug—fifty-eight by forty-one feet, weighing four tons, and described as “the largest oval rug in the world”—was inspired by something else Rambusch might have seen on a baby grand: a microphone of the old style with holes around its face like a telephone dial. Roxy was proud of his radio fame (his “Gang” was the family tree from which Arthur and all the Little Godfreys later sprang), and the Rotunda rug, with a monogrammed microphone wreathed in movie film as its central theme, was just the thing.


Oh Yes..Syd Knew..a millions of dollar renovation requires bids..whether he submitted one or not is irrelevant..everyone in his circle certainly would have known..

which leads us to the rights..
but thats a different topic for another time..
Klat knew too..bless him he tried to tell me several times..but I didn't have the presence of mind to see..

I was remiss in noting it was our very own and elusive EVS Dr Von Stern that caught this remarkable duiscovery

OTF55 was nice to put it up but disappointed me when he said..


The similarities are striking to me. I will admit though that the above are not pictures from the 1930s, they were all taken after the drones case broke in 2007. Maybe someone else can find original pictures or testify that they saw this artwork in the Empire state building before the 1960s when the ceiling was covered up.

which was an incredible thing to state because it was their in black and white by the NYT

The New York Times story:

Art Deco murals restored in 2009 from something covered since 1960s which opened in 1931.
Described as "star constellations and zodiac signs".
Originally designed by Leif H. Neandross ( died at 80 on May 19, 2006), about one year before the drones hit the scene.
Tri-colour (aluminum/gold/white) depiction just like seen on the drone craft side plates which are tri-coloured.

What is their about the word RESTORED he does not understand? its not replacement..not enhancement..not a reinterpretation or upgrade..its a restoration of an original that involved backtracking as I stated to original panels located at Corning Glass Museum.. for Gods sake!
If he , Linda, Douglas, Alienware, Isaac can find it at Palo Alto Labs please let us know, or how how murals jumped off the walls and ceiling and traveled to Roswell 1947 16 years AFTER THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING OPENED...I'm all eyes and ears..

we may get glimpses as well of Deco Art that became the rage of that period. The ESB was not the only building going up..
https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/497929302527206149/

There were parts that could not be restored..certain glass panels..and portions of the cieling..however..everything we see is per strict restoration criteria..consistent with the motifs of planets n stars cogs n wheels..created by Rambusch n Leif Neandross

To minimize any doubt whatsoever..
here are the architects that made a video..explaining the entire process

Anti gravity, hologram projector, free enr=nergy, ( as lomg as you tapped into a utility pole, ) were the stuff the drone was made of...or rather..made into. an artform ..deco art reversed engineered for our pleasure.
The ESB has elevators, up and down, defying gravity too, holographic projectors, like the one Android Jones, used to promote preservation of animals, balance, using the Godess Kali, life death, creation, the recycling of all things..renewal..


https://www.everfest.com/magazine/festival-all-star-android-jones
Through his experiences at Burning Man, he began to dive into the underground group of creators and artists that surrounded him in the Bay Area. He realized quickly that creativity, design and art were powerful currencies that were celebrated by this community. In 2006, Jones attended a visionary art show in San Francisco called Synergenesis. It was at this show he first encountered Luke Brown, Xavi Panneton, Carey Thompson and Alex Grey , and experienced what's known as Visionary Art.

I would not exactly call it visionary ...more like recyling..the raison de'etre of retro art. repurposing..as it were..
I wouldn't even call copyright now that we see the true source as they are all stylized interpretations of an original work..that in no way diluted the value of the original long since abandoned therfeore not actionable law.. behind sheetrock panels in the 50s..they were classifiable as junk...Indeed many of my colleagues..used just that word..J U N K.
But I knew better..They could all come foward now..but we know they would all be liars..feigning originality..inspiration..but really..not an iota of original genius..like Neandross and his patron boss..So I think they may actually stay out of this altogether..rather than make a collective admission this was just another contract. Only the italians and Aussies have been able to get away with the art immersion concept when giving the public a good dunking.
I am wondering How LMH will take all of this..probably in stride..because she did get some free mileage out of it..enough that one might think she broke the rule for unity, ie perpetual motion...so may be it is real!.. grin

Of the arrtists I corresponded with..the most honest as he could be given the circumstances of our little internet cropcircle was Syd Mead..without sayins so directly.. ..his description was not of a ufo..but a piece of art work..

Its clear ESB designers based on other projects they undertook followed instructions from owners what was desired aesthetically. incorporating elements of the owners personal interests. The arts styles Deco, roccoco, and neo Tudor were a culmination of the synergies that can be found in Europes France and Germany..which in turn were an evolution of collected symbology over the milennia...But we need not go back that far as the ESB has it there in all one place..ripe for the plucking.

That is a keen observation....we all remember ( at least the few left)that Isaac stated the cloaking worked by bending light. Those antigrav generators also bent gravity...I have no problems visualizing the same bending metal..

What a sheer thing of beauty indeed! I have no problem imagining lots of these when the ESB was being rehabbed..and having worked as an electrical asst myself..can tell you they work flawlessly. Worth a special place in an art gallery itself.

Sys,

last week I called in at my old company to see how the guys were getting along, and to collect a band saw blade they had ordered for me. Akram, the shop foreman said 'I put these to one side, thought you may have a use for them; too good to scrap'. And he passed me a set of pipe bending rollers.

Synchronicity ?

I'm imagining a stream of light particles (photons) passing over and under an airfoil. On a 'plane the increase speed of the flow on the top causes a low pressure that creates lift.

Wonder if the same thing happens with light ?
