Clue #44 - More Sublymonal & DJ Dan Stuff

The Sprite related site from Clue #29, sublymonal.com , has changed. It seems to be more soda marketing and less LOST but there may be some things worth finding.

To explore, use the following "passwords". The DJDan podcast is really the only thing TLE related:

I just wanted to be the first comment on the new clue...

Sorry for the double post, but thought it more appropriate here (wasn'r here yet when I last refreshed)...:

Thanks for that... very interesting... Good to know people are still perusing "old" clue sites for updates.

I've been "lurking" I guess for over a week now... catching up on the game, and *reading up* before I dared post my thoughts/observations... I think you are all brilliant, btw...and thanks for keeping this fun.

Been mentioned slightly (hey ward and thrasher above), and with this new DJDan clue makes a little more sense to me... I had noticed first-off that the Mission Statement page had discrepancies about the projects. Under the acronyms, the project names are missing BOTH the Mental Health Appeal and the Electromagnetic Research Initiative, and both are replaced with the "Educational Otreach Imperative" (repeated). I noticed the only other mention of this "project" on the site is on the Institute for Genomic Advancement page, under the picture, "Educational Outreach (c) experiments..." But that's a minor detail...

But that name... Educational Outreach... struck me as important, as well as the discrepancies and inconsistencies (project names, including Educational Outreach, are also inconsistent in at least 2 of the press releases from the beginning, as well as "Hugh" on Kimmel repeating they have "six" projects, etc.).

The DJDan podcast mentioned Widmore funding college research projects...

Also, that *fake* video of old Hanso Industries keeps coming to mind---are we absolutely sure that's a fake?? Just want to clarify b/c it mentions Hanso's sponsoring of college research programs. It also mentions a satellite program, and satellites have been a little theme this past week I've noticed. Someone else linked to a satellite site about the connection to "swans," etc. That mentioned that satellite scanners in the north pole could scan 14 times a day as opposed to twice a day from the equator, and --SHOW SPOILER--Pen Widmore's scanning station was in a *snowy* area...

And an electromagnetic superweapon could bring down a satellite...

Sorry this is so long and not really putting much together. Just wanted to get off my chest what's been building in my mind reading all this so far...

Thanks and...

Hello, please post this because this is the transcript from the site that you are talking about.

If you type in "Persephone" into the sublymonal.com website, you see a plane with "108" on the tail end. Type that in and you'll get a HIDDEN PODCAST from DJ Dan.

HERE IS THE TRANSCRIPT THAT I HAVE TYPED FROM IT:

Voice-over: "Coming to you live from the Bermuda Triangle..."

Background Singers: "DJ Dan"

Voice-over: "You're listening to DJDan, shutting down the man."

DJ Dan: "Tanya, why am I in such a great mood? Do you know, can you guess?"

Tanya: "Uh, does it have something to do with yesterday's interview maybe? The fact that you shut down the man?"

DJ Dan: "Oh, Tanya. Sweet Tanya. Before I answer that, I gotta rant. Guys, I hate to tell you this, but I gotta tell you. You are OWNED! If you're like me, you're like most of the suckers who rent instead of own, lease instead of buy, use credit instead of cash. You are OWNED. 30% of you is owned by the government, and the government is owned by THE MAN. You know what I'm talking about, I'm talking global corporations, like your Widmore corportion. Companies so big, so evil, so powerful, that even when you stand up, you are picketing with signs made on their paper, while drinking coffee picked on their cocaine -- oh, ho, lordy, I mean, uh, Colombian coffee plantations. Now this is nothing new, Conspiraspies. It's been this way since way back when before Charleton Heston parted the Red Sea. So why does it feel like things have changed?"

Tanya: "Uh, because they have?"

DJ Dan: "No, SHUTDOWN. Because the stink has risen to the surface. These companies aren't even trying to hide it anymore. I want my Candlestick Park back. I want to walk through the campus of my state university and feel like I'm in that state, not the corporate headquarters of the bank that owns the business school. Which brings me to yesterday's question: Why are college students building electromagnetic superweapons? Electromagnetic superweapons, people. Here's the sitch [situation]: We've got a student, gets an astrophysics scholarship at a state school. What he doesn't know, what he couldn't know until he's there, what they don't put in the brochure next to the pictures of the cafeterias and the cheerleaders, is that he's running research simulations for classfied electromagnetic superweapons. And when he decides, 'Hey, I'm 18, I don't need to be contributing to the corporate war machine,' they pull his scholarship. They pull his scholarship. They sue him and turn his life upside down. And with nothing to lose, he comes on my show and he dishes it straight. Tanya, roll the tape."

[Tape begins.]

DJ Dan: "So, uh, you have no idea who is funding this research program?"

Interviewee: "No, I have an idea."

DJ Dan: "An idea? A theory? A CONSPIRACY THEORY?"

Interviewee: "Every week some guy picks up our simulation, so I followed one, and I lose him in the crowd outside the Widmore Corporation building."

[Tape ends.]

DJ Dan: "Uh, Stop right there, Tanya. Widmore Corporation. Do you have any idea whose offices are housed within the Widmore Corporation building?"

Tanya: "Uh, does it begin with Hanso?"

DJ Dan: "Oho, you're gettin' paid this week, Tanya. For those of you who don't know, the Hanso Foundation is one of those non-profit organizations whose sole purpose seems to be researching everything you see in a bad sci-fi movie. Now, if you're like me, you're dying to know: what are these people up to? Of course, nobody knows, not even this Persephone chick who's hacking their website, and just the same, nobody knows where that guy went in that crowd. Now, what we do know is that yesterday's show made a stink. My source on the hill says he hasn't seen senators this pissed off since the Kennedy suicide. And all of a sudden, the plug has been pulled from the weapons program. WE SHUT DOWN THE MAN! And why? Because our Hanso Foundation, our insert name of evil corporation here, they heard my interview, and this last bit made their blood run cold. Roll the tape!"

[Tape begins.]

DJ Dan: "So, uh, then what are the possible applications of this research?"

Interviewee: "Pretty much, we were asked to simulate an electromagnetic pulse strong enough to knock a space-borne body out of its recurring orbit."

DJ Dan: "Uh, space-borne body. Like what, exactly?"

Interviewee: "Like, the moon."

[Tape ends.]

DJ Dan: "Okay, that's nutty even for me. But apparently it wasn't for them. This stuff is happening folks, open your eyes. DJ Dan, shutting down the man."

Voice-over: "You're listening to DJ Dan, shutting down the man."

My thoughts on Important Keywords:
From the Bermuda Triangle
Candlestick Park (Monster.com? San Francisco?)
State University (which one? Michigan & De Groot?)
Electromagnetic Superweapons (we saw one on the last episode)
The Moon (i agree with DJ Dan on this, but it has *very* interesting implications if true)

Here is the video poster that posted the videos imbedded in sublymonal.com

http://www.youtube.com/user/Lymonatrix

Here is a more detailed message about the SWAN and satellite connection (sorry if its long):

SWAN project...using the satellite

http://www.uen.org/swan/

here is the NUMBERS connection RIGHT HERE!!!



http://noaasis.noaa.gov/ARGOS/

is the satellite they use



QUOTE FROM www.uen.org/swan/:

How the Argos System Works

N.O.A.A. satellites orbit every 108 minutes or about 14 times a day. The satellite scans a 5,000 kilometer wide area as it passes. The satellite is within transmitter range for about 10 minutes. If the transmitter is sending then the satellite will receive multiple messages from the swan's transmitter.

Because of the earth's rotation a transmitter at the equator would be scanned once a day while a transmitter at the pole could be scanned 14 times a day.

When the satellite passes one of three main ground stations, it downloads the information to computers. The computers then calculate the location of the swan and send the owner of the transmitter an E-mail message.

The Shadow-A-Swan website then updates the archive for each swan, maps the longitude and latitude and calculates the distance traveled since the last reported location.

the satellite theory sounds very well.
every satellite needs 108minutes to round the earth. maybe the connections between the numbers and the satellite is that the numbers are maybe the activation or deactivation for the satellite which includes a superweapon?!

too abstract?

5/26/2006 04:06:00 AM  
Blogger TEAM Lena said...

Well originally the ultimate theory on another site (the one who posted the theory that satellites had something to do with it) said that inputting the numbers was to stop the satellite from seeing the island.

Just a theory, but thats why me and hubby checked it out so thoroughly!

Somewhat off topic, but I was checking out the UK Big Brother website (channel4.com/bigbrother) and one of the sidebar ads features Joop and advertises the LEP project. This doesn't appear all the time, but it's in the ad cycle. Clicking the banner takes you to thehansofoundation.org.

Channel 4 is the station here that carries Lost, so there's the connection. Just interesting more than anything, I think.

Hypes and Lena are talking about the whole satalite thing. It got me to thinking that Desmond in the show side of the house, not concerning the game side, missed one of the times of inputing the numbers which would throw off the whole "satalite invisiblity shield" type thing. Just a thought. Sorry for the interrupion of show type stuff.

Now. Hypes, Lena and Andrew... about that satellite thing...


Spoiler!











Remember that Henry Gale said that "Not even God can see this island" The producers said that we should listen and watch Henry very closely. Inputing the code so satellites can't see that place is a pretty darn good theory, IMHO. Also, he didn't seem to affected by the EMP or whatever it was. Need to go back and watch the ep again so I can check his feet when he's walking down the pier. He might have had only four toes! LOL! Interesting that DJDan was talking about the weapons. And here I thought Hanso was oh-so benevolent...

Also, on the simian vet job, you can't have ever been a member of an animal rights or environmental group. Let's me out as I accidently joined the WWF one time. World Wildlife Fund, not that silly wrestling thing. With Joop being 105, it sounds like extreme and not always kind animal experimentation to me. Organs may be connected here as well.

I just watched the part of the video where the "blast" thing happens.

Henry DOES hold his hands to his ears just like everyone else...the only diffence is he knows what it means, and thats no surprise!

**also**
You cannot tell if he has four or five toes LOL

When you use the code DEFIB themessage on the screen says "when things slow down you see more" The commercial that this code leads you to says "DVR ready" at the very beginning. Anyone have a way of slowing the playback down? Seems like a likely place for a clue.

Really? Henry had his hands on his ears. OK. I thought he looked like he knew what it was, too. Although, in Lockdown, and you tell me if I'm crazy, he didn't seem to know what was happening in the hatch when the lockdown itself was happening. He was in the armory alone and the look on his face made me think he was genuinely surprised by the noise. Also, their hatch appears to be caved in or a fake and their clothes suck. Maybe they're unaware that drops are still happening. He also said that Kate, Jack and Sawyer are going "home" with them. So where's THAT exactly? One last thing. Desmond thinks he brought the plane down and he may be right. But why was it so desperately off course to begin with? Can the EMP be so strong that it sucked a plane 1000 miles off course before crashing it?

Desmonds actions DID have SOMETHING to do with the plane...but it was STILL A PLANNED EVENT...that is WAY too obious.

Maybe when Henry was in the hatch, he didnt know what he NOW knows.

Yes the other's "home" is not that hatch we saw in the fake camp for the others. Doesnt anyone remember that they briefly show Sayid attemping to go into that entrance and finds out ITS FAKE!!???

Kinda worried what will come of him.

An Anger Management Director needs to efficiently manage unforeseen human complications of the Foundation's work and deal with rapid responses, mission-critical variables and human rights. What the hell is going on in Korea that's pissing people off to this degree? In the original phone messages the "inquiry into the Korean off-shore project" is mentioned, but they won't comment about it and this job ad says that sea-based travel will be required. Inquiry into the project, eh? By who? Right after that is when Thompson comes on and yells that threats against employees of Widmore and Paik-Heavy etc. are criminal.

Just thinking out loud in hopes I can trigger something...

The widmore corporation website seems like it will be legit at some point. Right now the code does not do anything, but I still thought this should be pointed out:

There are three field to be filled out. They are: control #, Access Ep, and CV Station ID.

The last one there is the important one. If you look at the map on the blast door (http://www.lost-shop.de/dharmatel/pics/dharmadoor6qa.jpg) You see that the stations, or hatches, all have CV numbers written nearby.

Not that it makes any difference right now :)

Kircher published a large number of substantial books on a very wide variety of subjects, such as Egyptology, geology, and music theory. His syncretic approach paid no attention to the boundaries between disciplines which are now conventional: his Magnes, for example, was ostensibly a discussion of magnetism, but also explored other forms of attraction such as gravity and love.

Sorry, this is extra-long, but I had to get down all of my thoughts. As I said last night (above), they've been building for 2 weeks or so.

I know people have said this video is a fake (in terms of the clues we've gotten so far), but the more I watch it, I'm not so sure. It takes a lot of money to produce an almost-seven-minute video of this quality, and there are things in it that just seem dead-on. Posted to YouTube 5/13/06 by "HoffittFilms." (Couldn't find anything on that or Jerry Hoffitt on Google.)

Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DmsLffPM_Q

Of note:

Very beginning, right after the high-pitched noise, there's a man's voice saying something, low, can't make it out...

Also can't make out the writing on the very bottom of the "Hanso Industries" title page, under "A Jerry Hoffitt Film."

Would also love to know what's on the blackboards...

Mention of "social engineering" in their list of "emerging and converging sciences."

Of real interest now:

Satellite activity: "Once in orbit, the objective of Hanso's new satellite is to observe the geophysical properties of the earth..." and to study the earth's "magnetosphere, the region in space which is distorted by earth's internal magnetic field" (this is a real thing, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetosphere).

While displaying an animation of a satellite coursing over the South Pacific between Australia and the West Coast of the Americas, the voiceover says, "The satellite's secondary objective is to search for and observe any magnetic anomalies that may occur on the earth's surface," and the satellite STOPS over an oceanic region there. Island?

Search for magnetic anomalies?? Hello?

Remember this was put out almost 2 weeks ago...

Also ominously hanso-freaky: the search for young men and women "boldly imaginitive, of character of penetrating curiosity, and of barrier-breaking courage to engineer the future of mankind." What-what? Reminds me of administrator's theories (which I liked a lot) in podcast #2...

Establishment of Hanso Foundation to provide university grants for expirimental research and doctoral training for individuals in "each of the fifty states." (Tie-in to DJDan's recent podcast.) Hanso-funded research labs "put into service at 8 institutions in the last year [1965 I think], 4 more have been previously completed, and another 15 are underway." NUMBERS... (I know, anyone can use the numbers, but in light of everything else, it seems to be legit).

So it uses stock footage, which is why many have dismissed it as a fake. So does thf.org, by the way. This game isn't a major motion picture project. The point is that *they* picked the RIGHT footage, made custom graphics, and the production quality is superb, in my not-exactly-expert-but-somewhat-educated-in-the-field opinion. And the music is perfect. Ans so it's not easily traceable to ABC or Disney, or other corporate sponsors--I haven't been able to trace it to anyone, in fact, maybe someone else has? I think TPTB might want to offer non-commersh clues. And widmore.com is an "ABC" site, right? But according to http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Widmore.com, it is "A fanmade site that poses as ABC registered." So perhaps the video is ABC-made, but undercover for the GAME.

So... not sure if there are any passwords or cyphers or codes or anagrams leading to more hacks into thf.org, but I do think this video provides an insightful, if not *priveleged* POV for the ARG in general, or at the very least, for the show.

Nah, must stay.

Spoilers...sorta






Extremely well made, but I didn't seem to learn much from it. What I mean is, we already knew all that stuff about social engineering and science converging from the first Orientation film. And we've known since season 1 that the island had unusual magnetic properties. The only relatively new thing is the satellite deal (which we've already discussed in here today) and the idea of satellite tracking being used in the show was really just presented on Wed night. This was put up on the 13th, looks like. It could go either way, I guess. How's that for non-commital? =o)

5/26/2006 12:59:00 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

My reasoning behind thinking that the video is fake is: nothing really that is "in game" brought us to the video. (unless you are in game t-emmer) spooky music
But, every clue that we have gotten is derived from something that is already determined to be in game. When the new stuff arrives IE sublymonal it is supported by another site or "clue" which is a secondary check to prove to us that it is in game. Now if we were to get a message from P or the jeep Budda or whatever that sent us to this video then I would believe it and look harder into it. But as for now I feel it is a nice video, but not in game.

Cheers

Thrasher: Here's an idea. There were heiroglyphs used in the hatch on the countdown clock, right? Those were deciphered to mean death. Could the statue be a hind foot of Anubis? Consider this:

"Tutankhamun's Anubis, like so many others, bears many features characteristic of a dog: long muzzle, eyes with round pupils, five-toed forefeet and four-toed hind feet."

"Anubis' realm dealt with death and preparation for the afterlife."

Andrew,
The video was practically pushed in my face when following the game. The link from Hugh Mcintyres mailbox to the jeep advert video had all sorts of key words next to it. Pretty much all pointing to this videos (and other(s) just as professionally made). It seems to me that it would be perfectly logical to find these videos by following the game.

The comparrison to the man in the video and the picture found at persephone.thehansofoundation.org (which has to mean something; it was a hard clue to find) is startling. Is this clue pointing us to the video? And the other video(s) to be found on youtube about the Dharma initiative?

I think that t-emmer23 made very good arguments for the video being something to do with the game, if not just to intrigue us.

I just wish someone could find something concrete.

Thanks for reading

I have seen the Hoffitt film, and it is definitely FAKE.

If you look at about 2:40 there is a "Hanso Industries Tracking Site" sign. Everything in background is blurry and moves around a little, except for the sign. This was OBVIOUSLY edited.

The Hanso logo on the building is a little too "shiny" and looks computer generated. The opening and closing screens would be very easy to add.

I think what they did is use some generic space/science educational video, and re-record the sound so they could add Hanso and Dharma references.

100 bonus points to someone who finds the orignal video.

If it is fake, it is definitely well produced. The graphic used as the "magnetosphere" is the same as that on DJDAN's site. We are in this ARG, but remember that all Hanso videos are fake in reality. The beginning says it's a "Jerry Hotfitt Film", which is a name we have never heard in the game or the show. I believe it is an extremely well done fan film, however I don't believe that we will ever find "the original". I think it's a series of different clips, strung together, along with images that are relevant to the game/show. Anyone could create a video of that nature with enough time by attaching clips together and putting the final film through filters to make it seem old.

Matt - It is strange as I was doing my digging and found some cool stuff that may relate in greek mythology I noticed that the Jewish religion came up alot. Hitler himself actually searched for a mythic greek power that would give him ever lasting life and ultimate power. But alas he did not succeed. Many religions and Lost mythos are rooted in greek mythology. Read up on some of my early posts with some interesting things including a guy that was into alot of the same things Hanso is into, but in the 17th century. He even made a map that looks like our island hatch map...

Good Luck & Namaste

But yes, I can see connections to famous alchemists (Albertus Magnus, alias Albert de Groot), Greek and Egyptian mythology, and so on and so forth. And of course most ancient mythologies borrowed from one another.

Oh and very cool stuff on that 17th century map! (I'm so much happier checking this stuff out than figggering out the ASCII codes!)

By the way, check out a Shinto shrine called Ise Jingu. Just some tidbits: it attracts many "lost souls", is rebuilt every 20 years ( next time in 2016.)and is dedicated to a sun goddess who gave her soon-to-be emperor grandson a mirror as a symbol of soul-searching and honesty.

Seems Hanso is interested in lots of different mythologies.

here is some food for thought
...atlantis is in the bermuda triange (DJDAN and thf.com mystery spot on the world map) there are two other "lost" civilizations related to atlantis, mu and lemuria, one supposedly in the south pacific.

...the date Oct. 28th came up a few times in the Hanso site although one is now gone and this relates to the Philadelphia experiment which was ment to use electomagnatism to make things invisble.

...in wikipedia if you look up lemuria you will find a tidbit about the Madrid Codex, it is a Mayan text once believed to refer to lemuria and AH was last seen in Madrid.

...while looking deeper into the Maya and predictions I found some pretty wild sites about the world ending in 2012 and that the Maya have predicted it, also the Maya dating system worked in 5 digit sequences so 4.8.15.16.23 would be a date, also what of our 6rh digit??

...well that is a lot but I will throw out one more thing before I go, there has been talk of Anubis lately and it reminds me of another Eygptian god Apophis, which is the name of a Near Earth Orbit Asteriod found on June 19th 2004(the year Lost began) that will pass painfully close to earth in 2013, 2021 and 2029... perhaps Hanso is trying to knock a comet out of orbit to save/destroy the earth??

...I have a few more crazy ideas but just wanted to throw those out for now, Nameste and good luck.

the video:
there is just too much detailed info it coroborates which has only come to light in the last few days. BUT, it is stuff which was revealed on the TV SHOW and not necessarily the LOST EXPERIENCE.
i'm so confused, and either way, the video seems to be pretty freaking accurate and wellmade.

as for the fact that it's been computer edited:
no duh! even if it was done by the producers themselves, its clear they used stock footage.
i'm intrigued by the pan accross the students in the room, when it takes like 30 seconds to pan accross them. will we see these actors in season 3 or 4?!?!?!
that would rule.

whatever, my head's exploding.

shawnm: a lot of interesting points... I've known of the Mayan calendar and their prediction of the world coming to an end in 2012... they were a pretty advanced civilization that just up and vanished out of nowhere, so I don't take their predictions lightly... Not sure how the Valenzetti Equation would work into your theory, tho, but we still don't exactly know what the Valenzetti equation is.

I remember that comet... it did happen around the beginning of the show, so it's possible that it influenced their ideas during the creation... interesting idea that I haven't heard proposed prior to this...

I just watched the video. I'm just as confused as the rest of you. I do think it's a pretty expensive proposition for a fan to fake. How did we find it again?

Blogger belly0fdesire said...

jessiep: It is only located on youtube, by searching for Hanso, which is why I think it's fake. All the other game/show related videos have been released through large commercial companies (sponsors), whereas youtube is not. Also the "Jerry Hotfitt Film" tag at the bottom of the opening title screen isn't the style of any other video we've seen, and doesn't go along with the rest of the "film". The "electromangeto sphere" is the same as we see on DJDAN.AM, but that could have been placed in using Premiere or another editing tool. The quality of the production leads me to believe that it is real, however the fact that it is ONLY found on youtube makes me think it is fake. I have sent several emails to hotfitt and have not received a reply. Hell, even Hugh McIntyre replies when you email him.

Hey bellyofdesire: totally see your points. Still, mouse does have more than one hole. Arg. I'm confused.

I'm so jealous of folks who've gotten email responses from McIntyre! I sent several media reqs ( I actually am a journalist!) to him and DJ dan, and Hansocareers, and everyother email address provided or found... and I got exactly squat. Guess I'm just not Hanso material. humph.

By the way, anyone read ( maybe here or on another blog) that when you slow down the Hanso ad, right when the DNA sequence begins, just to the left, there's hidden code? XL, an M and later 213? I've tried to slow it down with zero luck. ( also tried viewing on Youtube)

one more thing about the video originating on YouTube... a long while ago, someone found job listings on Monster that seemed to be connected to Hanso. They tried to enquire and got no response. Now Monster is the host of the hansocareers site. So I guess I'm saying, it's possible that the vid is in-game and we'll be given a clue about it later ( which will also serve as an ad for YouTube.) I dunno.

Hi:

First time entry here. Thanks for all the work you have all done.

Observation: The picture on the Electromagnetic Research Initiative says it is early moring hours of October 62, 9291. If we assume (dangerous, I know) that the numbers are reversed, that gives us October 26, 1929, the date of the great stock market crash. Since crashes are so integral to the story, thought it worth mentioning

shawnm: Atlantis is not actually located in the Bermuda Triangle. This is a common misconception, but based on who the myths of Atlantis come from it would be impossible for Atlantis to be located in the Bermuda Triangle. Those who our Atlantis myths originated with were not aware of that particular area of the sea. Exact location of the lost city is still the subject of great debate and can’t be pin-pointed so easily. Theories still exist for the city to be located in the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Sea, and even on the continent of Antarctica.

Either way based on the amount of Mythology the lost creators are throwing at us, I wouldn’t go adding anything that the clues don’t point to… such as Atlantis.

DJDan referenced the Bermuda Triangle, has anyone looked up the mythology around that? One theory about why the Bermuda Triangle has caused disappearances has to do with electromagnetics. THAT’S INTERESTING.

perhaps I should have said "some say Atlantis is in the bermuda triangle" no one knows where or if it was or is. Here is a tidbit from one site

http://www.greatdreams.com/bermuda.htm

THE ATLANTIS CONNECTION?

Edgar Cayce, who was know as a healer and psychic, and also as the father of holistic medicine, claimed that he was, in a former life, a citizen of Atlantis. Cayce told of an advanced civilization, with all the inventions of our modern day life including weapons of mass destruction. The most notable weapon being the "death ray". Death rays came in all sizes, but a giant death ray machine, which was the largest of all their weapons is said to be the weapon that destroyed Atlantis. Cayce also predicted that the western ridge of Atlantis would be discovered off the coast of the Bimini islands. In The 1960's a startling discovery was made in that same place. It was that of an ancient roadway built out of large stones which was under the ocean off the coast of Bimini. Could this be an ancient highway of Atlantis?

Dennis: I have seen the DEFIB video, so it does work. More importantly, as I posted early the very beginning of the video shows "DVR Ready" at the bottom of the screen. Before even clicking on the link to the video you see the message "when you slow things down you see more" on the subLYMONal page. I can't slow the video down on my player, but I have a feeling there may be a clue in there somewhere.

Howard: While that's definitely a good catch on the Black Monday reference, I dont think there's anything behind it but coincidence. If you notice the pic above that caption you'll see an x and y value that changes as you move the mouse. If you place the mouse on coordinates 629-291 (which is the zero point on the graph on the right) you can click and reveal a button leading you back to the letyourcompassguideyou.com compass. The coordinates for this were limited by the fact that the page has frames above and to the left. Given that, I doubt the producers could have actually planned the date to coincide with the stock market crash.

...Besides, Black Monday was October 28, 1929 :)

It's quite alright, Jeff. Welcome to the game.

This is getting off topic, but researching I've discovered some VERY interesting things about electromagnetism... There's a man named John Hutchison, after whom the Hutchison Effect is named. This is some pretty amazing footage and explains the entire thing. A lot of the ideas being introduced in the show and game are put into real application on this video. They also explain some very trippy dangers that are risked when harnessing the energy. I really suggest watching this. It really is quite amazing and shows actual footage of the power that the Hanso Foundation is harnessing.

As for the bermuda triangle reference this site offers and explanation as to the theories that present links between Atlantis and the Bermuda triangle. As he said, no one really knows, so there is no right or wrong here.

Yeah, I'm still into the Hoffitt video until concrete proof it's a fan thing. Editing, and decent editing at that, isn't proof of fakery. If anything, it points MORE to game production. We already know TPTB use stock footage/photos. I think it's reasonable that not every single part of this game is immersed in corporate sponsorship. I'll keep referring to it, as long as there are correlations. Which brings me to...

The Mayan prediction thing is interesting. In the film, it's mentioned twice (I think) that Hanso is doing their experiments so that they can "advance" humanity within the next 50 YEARS (specifically). If it's supposed to be 1965, and they'd been at it for a few years, Hanso's vision should be realized (according to plan) sometime between 2005 and 2015. Why? They have the date of the end of the world like the Mayans (via Valenzetti)? Trying to engineer "a better tomorrow"?

Also wanted to note, the poster's profile on youtube, "HoffittFilms" states that he's a 74-year-old male.
