Thrasher, I hope it's okay if I repost this...I had just put it at the end of the other enormous thread when this new one went up. If it's bad manners to do that, please delete, thanks.

Good morning everyone! I've been spending some time this a.m. on Maven's awesome timeline. A couple of things occurred to me as I perused...
1. The Spider Memo - we've had a lot of discussion on whether it's referring to the "lost" island. BUT, as I reread it, it refers to "census figures" and "customs inquiries". To me, that implies they are looking for a place with people, not a deserted island.
2. This GWC Partnership - The press release says "...Partner in
World Health, a status granted only to those organizations at the
forefront of the battle to curb the spread of infectious disease." Thomas Werner Mittelwerk (don't you just love the way Rachel almost always uses his full name) just got major medical work done - full blood replacement, all the vaccines and some special proprietary drugs as well.
3. DJ Dan's nanotechnology podcast on June 14 - "lot's of useful applications: medicine, computers....you could capture them in an electromagnetic field". Could they spread disease? Or does this have to do with mind control? Or both? Could TWM be inoculated against the effects of nanotechnology?
4. The mysterious antenna - broadcasting mind control? Directing the nano-bots?
5. The Helgus Antonius - loaded with Hanso crates, going who knows where. Is that the ship Mr. Paik was building? They met on June 22 and TWM asked for it to be ready in two weeks. July 6, RB's picture post was 2 weeks.

My tinfoil hat theory of the day....TWM et al are looking for an island where people live that meet certain population demographics, that they can get their ship in to, and has the necessary geography to unleash a new disease. They will then stroll in with their "cure" which is nanobots. Then control everyone's mind through electromagnetism using their antenna. The rest of the world will line up for the vaccine and ultimately THF controls the world. It's a better tomorrow! You read it here first.

Now, I do realize the my conclusion is awfully whacky and yes I threw it out for fun (unless it turns out to be correct! I mean, really, what does a megalomaniac want but WORLD DOMINATION)...

but do the first three observations spark any thinking? I think it's interesting to try and brainstorm some links between some of the evidence we've been given.

Doubt anything will happen today!

I had just posted this on the last thread, when this new one started:

ange: No, that's the only monitor site I know of and check from time to time. Do you know another one? Anyone?

fasten...: Thanks for the kudos on the Timeline. I wish I had something to add lately! I welcome everyone to check it out and make corrections or addition suggestions in the comments. It's YOUR Timeline, not MINE! (tletimeline.blogspot.com)

Your theories and speculations, fasten..., will make for some fun discussion today (being so slow lately, we have a lot of time to flesh things out and try to make connections to all we've been given). I think in regards to your comments on the SPIDER memo, that the point made on census, and customs inquiries probably would just mean that they're looking for a more isolated place to do their dirty work...something uninhabited and away from prying eyes. So that ruled out alpha, beta and gamma and they would have to go back to the old island where they know they would have no interference.

You know, wierdly enough, it took me getting entirely intoxicated to make the connection between the Electro Magnetics and the Nanobots, and then, ultimatly, the "monster" on the island (If you notice, it's only particularly active at certain times, then disappears!)

There have been hints from the producers that we will see more of the "monster" in the third season and now that (SPOILER DONT READ!) the electro magnetic controls and fail safes are gone (END SPOILER) it is all starting to make some sense!!!

And ya'll probably know this already, and I am just stating the obvious... this second act has passed me by. :-( don't have the time to keep up on it...

Fastenyourseatbelts said...3. DJ Dan's nanotechnology podcast on June 14 - "lot's of useful applications: medicine, computers....you could capture them in an electromagnetic field".

I think you may be on to something with the nanotech (and maybe even nanobot)thing. I know it was mentioned with video of nano-cloaking (?) somewhere in the 700+ comments below (can't remember who posted it...originally I think folks were writing this off as TPTB are having a laugh at all of our ramblings and theories about the monster (from the show). As well as that it came from DJ Dan, who for all intensive purpose, the jury is still out on. But...I am now coming around, after reading other's posts, to the nanotechnology piece being of importance.

7/09/2006 11:23:00 AM  
Blogger FYSB said...

Maven, I do take your point on the isolation, especially since THF likes to work in obscure African nations, but I still think they need some amount of people for this "grand plan". Maybe the isolation is needed to control the experiment. But if they're reviewing a census, they're looking for people. And if they're inquiring into customs, then they must expect to encounter customs and they're looking for perhaps lax rules. And if TWM is getting all inoculated, he's got to be expecting to encounter something. Hmmmmm...

And that timeline...did I mention awesome? Giving this vast chaotic info a sense of order is going to be very helpful in tying the info together. IMHO, I think we should be trying to understand the links between the info RB/P has shown us. I think (hope?) the information shared was intended for more than just telling us how awful THF is...they're all hints as to what the ultimate goal is. We just need to connect the dots...notice how RB almost always gives us a recap list of the clues in her videos?

If you guys are interested in reading some interested stuff on nanotechnology, there's a link from littletigerone on the Research Blog. It's under Active Projects after the IGA and LEP sections. Link to the Research Blog on the Main page.

I do think that all these things that have been given us has to tie-in together: nanotechnology leadng to extending life expectancy along with organ harvesting.

7/09/2006 11:28:00 AM  
Blogger Ange said...

Thanks for that Maven...I could not remember who had posted that nanotech. stuff!
Thrasher-I hear ya about the lag in clues. In Act 1, we really did go for days...Act 2 MUCH more in the clue department, but it seems it is feast or famine. I really think that's where the whole ROT thing came from, and why it was so useless. They gave us a clue a day for literally 6 or 7 days, something to do, kept us from complaining and all that, and gave Rachel a break. BUT look how that turned out...a big waste of time, due to the link and the memo being posted for us! I guess beggars can't be choosers and all of that, but I do find it overwhelming that we get a bunch of clues all at once, sometimes several all in one day, and then a huge lull to get us all freaking out. Oh well....I am going outside and taking a break from worrying about Rachel Blake until tomorrow:)

7/09/2006 11:30:00 AM

good point ange, DJ dan might say something tomorrow about her - or maybe gidget - because even rachel was wondering where she was.

also, off topic, maven - remind me sometime to show you a photo of my cat spaz - he could be the orange cat in your photos twin (abit a fatter twin, spaz is huge), hehe.


is anyone else still wondering though, how come we had to hunt for the /clue/clue thing for rachels video - and it was very interactive with the IM convos and such...only to have rachel just post it in the end? it seems to go against everything thus far - we are rarely just handed something so obvious - we always have to hunt to find. it just seems very odd to me.

Nano's, hmm, maybe that's why Rose and Locke are healed. The Nano's did it. There is reserch being done in medicine where nano's "repair" the body. Could this be part of the "life extension" department. If your body was always being fixed it would someone be able to die?

fastenyourseatbelts: Thanks again for the nice words on the Timeline. I feel so frustrated not be able to add anything over the last few days!

Yes, it is interesting how R recaps everything. In fact, it sometimes is aggravating...we work so hard to find that video or put together that Protocol Memo, and then she quotes it verbatim on the Blog! What was the point of finding it in the first place?

Well, I'm sticking to my thoughts that the Mittelwerk gang wants isolation away from prying eyes to set up whatever is in those cargo crates. Time will tell.

Dang, forgot about the organ harvesting and life extension. I wonder how that could in to my WORLD DOMINATION theory. (I think world domination should always be in all caps and said with a boomy echoy deep voice).
Maybe they're using the organs to fine tune the nanobots and need to keep replenishing the supply.
Still don't know how Valenzetti fits in to all this either.

You know, I keep thinking about that video as well. We never even had time to even attempt to find it before RB just laid it in front of us. I'm reaching here, but is it at all possible that the video the ROT was setting us up for was NOT the RB video? I'll have to go back and check, but they really talked it up like it was going to be something amazing. Was RB's video equal to the ROT hype? Could there be another video out there? Please?

7/09/2006 11:42:00 AM  
Blogger maven said...

Re: the Valenzetti Equations fitting in:


Either THF is trying to find out when the apocalypse will happen and are preparing a place (the island) for it by setting up a shield (see the Research Blog - EM/R Shield) to protect themselves. The nano stuff and life extension would be so they would be able to outlive the end of the world and could restart a Brave New World.

Or...they're trying to stop the apocalypse somehow by trying to set up a giant EMP with all the antennas and using an island that meets their specifications.

Or...they're trying to figure out the VE through the use of the autistic savants (leaving behnd no evidence in a computor), and blackmail the world with their knowledge.

It'd be wierd for Rachel to disappear like that. She almost vanished mid-sentence. If you look at the way things played out, Rachel found this ship and went back to her room to post, frustrated that she had no idea where to go next. What could have happened?

7/09/2006 11:49:00 AM  
Blogger tapdawg said...

I'm a SAG member. People do tend to be paid more on weekends, however the actress that portrays Rachel will film her scenes during the week and the editor/web designer will put them up. Whenever Rachel posts the actress that plays ehr does not actually post the new entry; rather the editor in charge of that website posts. That person doesn't neccesarily need to be in SAG in order to post the new files. The actress rachel blake must be in a Union however (whether she's a part of SAG or AFTRA or some other union... I don't know which). But just because something is posted on the weekend, it does not mean it was filmed on the day it is posted.


p.s.

Apparently my word verification wants to know where she is too:

RBQTIZN

If Rachel was in her room in front of her computer and decided to go and try to sneak onto the ship. Wouldn't she have said something? It seems like it would fit her style to leave a message of some sort, 'wish me luck, I'll be out of touch for a while' or the like.

Hey Maven...would it make sense to include when the ROT clues showed up in the timeline? I'm not sure if that's in the scope of what the timeline is trying to accomplish or even if it would help. Just a thought that popped in to my head.

7/09/2006 12:00:00 PM  
Blogger maven said...

All these videos where probably filmed weeks ago all at once. Her "posts" are probably put up by some intern. Tapdawg is right. We're led to believe this is happening as it's happening...but, most likely, these were done a while ago when this ARG was being put together. This lull is due to the fact that we're so good at this and they underestimated what we as a community can do, so they could be regrouping and trying to make things a little more involved (they're in re-write).

Unless Rachel took another ship to follow the Helgus Antonius or she was kidnapped and brought along, she did not "hop" on that ship. She took photos of it pulling away from port and then went back to her hotel room to post the pics for us. She seemed very confused about where it was going and she had a lot of questions for us. She wanted to hear from GidgeGirl.

I think they are still using the actress who plays rachel blake... if you remember the casting call for her said she would be used for several weeks/months. They probably film an entire weeks worth of information in a day, but only film it a week or two ahead of schedule.

Thus the delay right now is because of the 4th of July weekend.

Fastenyourseatbelts: Re posting when clues went up on the Timeline -- I made an "executive decision" that I wouldn't post when clues went up there (there are other places like Lostpedia that lists the timeline of clues). I thought the Timeline should reflect the actual world they are trying to create as to when and where things vital to the game too place. Anything or document that had an actual date to it, when and where the people in the game were or are, dates of interviews, podcasts, videos, blog posts that give info as to what is happening when and where.

Hopefully, that explains my thoughts on maintaining the Timeline.

side note: pirates made $132 MILLION at the box office this weekend. THATS THE BIGGEST OPENING WEEKEND IN THE HISTORY OF MOVIES!!

getting back to TLE, i doubt rachel would make a deliberate public appearance because

a. a non-gamer might screw it up somehow.

b. she would have to go to every state, and to every country that is participating. she will spend the rest of the game on this one appearance. so it probably wont happen. but theres bound to be something from her tomorrow. if theres not, then its time to panic.

Andrew: the cancer cure was done on Peter Thompson. Mittelwerk does have a history of some strange blood ailment in his family (I think his mother died of something). Maybe the transfusion he got is related to that.

We did get videos on 6/29... one from the Troup Interview series and the Zander video. Maybe it was a hint. He posted at 11:22AM on 6/29 and Rachel posted the video links at 7:56PM.

When I checked the 6/29 posting times I noticed something at the end of Rachel's post...

When I got tired of searching for the "hidden link" I messaged him back and he said he hasn't found them either, but that the lie he was referring to is the cue card that says "speaker is damon."

Hey there all. I've been so TLE-withdrawn this weekend I put together The Ultimate DJDan Podcast

Btw, here's a thought. Lost exists in the game world, we know because Hugh mentioned it being fiction but using real life references. Obviously the producers know something and we all immediately thought about the Lost island when they mentioned the Spider Protocol. So why hasn't Rachel or DJDan even referenced the show?

Oh yeah I figured out why Rachel hasn't left Italy yet. She's enjoying the atmosphere of them winning the world cup. I had £13 on them winning too so woot!

Has anyone noticed the change to the "Podcast Archives" section of the DJ Dan site? Some of the images at the bottom (you know, the pyramid, the tower, those ones) have become clickable links to sublymonal. They are the map-looking thing, the explosion, the "beast", the ufo and the astronauts. Also, when you move your mouse over the bottom row of pics, little red lines connect them together. So I figured the file names+the lines="det_beast_ufo01_moon".This doesn't seem to work anywhere though. I put it in the submit box and after "sublymonal.com" in the address bar, but no luck. Thoughts?

Could it be that there are nanites in the vaccinations against the "disease"? So the people whose brains will be used for the calculations are tricked into injecting nanites into their bloodstream, so they can go to their brains and set up the mental link?

Hmmm. Perhaps most people on the island got injected somehow, maybe in their sleep or something, or on the plane before they landed? Hence them surviving? The nanites repaired their ills and linked them telepathically which is why they hear the whispers. The Monster itself could be a swarm of nanites. Their could be nanites in the suplies too. Perhaps all the time in their heads the Losties are working on the V-Equation and don't know it.

The answer is of course, 42. But what is the question? Douglas Adams legacy lives on.

Anyone think this Garthazoid on Rachels blog is genuine and In Game?

7/09/2006 05:12:00 PM  
Blogger ZeroDark said...

fenris,

That's actually a good theory. Explains why they have to take the injection every nine days, the body metabolizes the nanites. Usually you don't have to vaccinate yourself on a weekly basis.

Unfortunately one of the producers already said the monster was not made of nanomachines, so that part of the theory is shot.

7/09/2006 05:14:00 PM  
Blogger Fenris said...

Damn! Well I suppose the nanoswarm was probably a bit too obvious for those guys. I guess once you get on a nano train of thought suddenly everything can be nanites. But the injections do seem to make the most sense of the lot.

The pre-crash injection theory is also a good technical explenation for the whispers and seeing people not there. (and if that is true it does also suggest that both Dave and Jacks dad are on the island with nanites and part of the system).

Lol, apparently someone on Speakers blog sent my DJDan track to Javi. Hope he likes it. :)

7/09/2006 05:24:00 PM  
Blogger ZeroDark said...

It would be cool if the nanites were injected early enough that they were used to manipulate people into getting onto that flight. There's a lot of talk about the people on the island being chose in one way or another. Walt and Claire (or her baby) are obvious examples.

Blogger wizardry_eas said...

hey all.

Just been checking aout a few things and came across this which was referenced on the lost ninjas blog.

It is basically saying that officially the Lost series will probably go for 4 or even 5 seasons and they want to do a film to top it all off. Nice. (sorry if you all knew this).

I wonder what this will mean for the ARG. Will there be an ARG to go between all of the series? Anyone have any ideas?

7/09/2006 06:51:00 PM  
Blogger Fenris said...

While I will be really sad to see it all end, I would be sadder to see it go on for longer then makes sense. All good stories need an end (even the never ending story did, I gather that sparked a few law suits). My favorite all time comic book series The Sandman is a great example of a series knowing when it is time. I was gutted when it ended but I knew it was right. But yes, sadly 4-5 seasons and film will be about right for Lost, and more then that it could end up another X-Files.

The good news is that we're not even half way through it yet, so that is cool. They seem pretty open minded on this expanded media theory so I would expect to see more books and ARGs expanding on the background story, maybe even a game (but not set on the island or anything) and potentially one or more related mini-series. I could see a Hanso Foundation spin off working as long as they understand it'd be a B-Show from the start and not axe it as soon as it doesn't get Lost ratings levels (and ABC would have to understand from the start the likelyhood of any kind of cross over would be minimal).

On a sidenote, I'm about halfway through Bad Twin now and although it seems to have little in the way of direct references to either ARG or the series, I am really enjoying it. I don't know who the ghost writter is but they have really got the Chandler style down quite well. I was doubtful when I read it was meant to be in that style (I love the Marlowe stories), but it's worked out quite well. It even made me put down "The Big Nowhere" to get through it (I was a few chapters in when Bad Twin turned up).

7/09/2006 07:09:00 PM  
Blogger maven said...

Hi, Wizardry! A LOST movie sounds great! They would have to integrate the ARG with LOST by then -- it would definitely flesh out the full story between the two and make for a complete movie. They keep telling us that the ARG is only for the summer. Maybe after they see all the people involved in this thing, they will keep it going.

I don't see what you guys are talking about on the DJ Dan site. Everything seems "normal" to me. The antenna used to be the conspiraspies clue and the wave picture on the end linked to sublymonal and the BigD p/w for a podcast. What else is different?

thanks lostinlost. ill check it out in a minute.

maven, visit http://www.djdan.am/podcast.html
mouse over (dont click on) the links fallout1, det, beast, ufo01, and moon. fallout has 3 green dots that blink. the others are separated by a red underlinks.
i am sure these are new clues.

its probably how you find the next podcast.

lostinlost: Thanks for link and info. However, I have already checked that out and there's nothing new for me. It's as I described in my previous post (9:31). There's even the same banner up (to type in anything that becomes "pyramid" that was used in the last podcast).

Those 3 blinking lights have been there since at least last week if not longer, if you click it, it takes you to sublymonal.com, I think it may be a left over clue.

I suspect foul play, as much as I hate to admit it. Although, ange and thrasher have a fair point - maybe we have been spoiled with hacks every day lately.
That said, Rachel was definitely making a point of updating her blog every day... And where has 'GidgetGirl' gone? I must admit, I've been suspicious of them from the start...

hi megs.

i saw it with a few friends. it actually was better the second time. you should see it again while you're away.

I'll see if I get a chance:)

I was not on here since early this morning, and even then it was only for a minute. I rarely come on here on weekends.

Are you planning to see Pirates again, Sean?

i dont know if ill get the chance to see pirates again. id like to. i enjoyed it the first time. but i always like seeing movies twice. but i doubt it. it will be a busy week, and as i told you, this friday, i am also leaving for a week.

I'm not sure where I sit on whether the game's script is set in stone or whether they are being flexible with it, whether this hiatus was planned or they've just decided to pull it on us now. Either way it could just be a way of shaking things up for us so we don't get too comfortable with the rhythm of the busy week and slow weekend. I just can't wait till the ball starts rolling again and we can make a bit more sense of it... hopefully.

I suspect Rachel's clue recaps are a way to help the casual players along.

I had a thought last night that if SPIDER is an acronym the end could be "Dharma Electromagnetic Research". I also got silly and thought the SP could be "Secret Project"... hmm, just thought the "E" could be for "Equation"?

Penny Widmore is a SPOILER for Australia and the UK

Lena, that's interesting about Manny ditching you after JWH... could just be the ROT peeps having fun... could mean something. Hopefully I'll get a chance to go video hunting later. Hope you're off dialup real soon too :-)

Sorry about the SPOILER, Lavenda. Wasn't thinking.

hmmm.. I just had a crazy thought.. What if Jamie Silberhartz, is Rachel Blake's real name.. not the actress but the character.. Hence, all those movie quotes.. Just a thought..

aarrggh, I knew we wouldn't get any clues this weekend, but it still sucks. What sucks even more is that I will be in a deposition all day tomorrow. I will bring my laptop thought and hope they have a wiFi, so I can keep up with the DJ Dan podcasts and any new clues tomorrow, but I will be relying on you guys (as usual) to get the transcripts up

maven, it's ok... I'm thoroughly spoiled (downloaded all the eps)... just someone asked who she was and I suspect they didn't know because they're in the UK or Aus. It's hard to constantly remember what could be a spoiler

7/09/2006 11:35:00 PM  
Blogger maven said...

Thanks, Lavenda. I felt terrible about that (although you're the first to mention it). This was all on Rachel's blog today. OMG, it's been so slow and boring, wanabes are coming out of the woodwork and creating blogs. Did you see the Landak one? The "Hanso is Watching You" Blog.

Well, it's been a looooong, slooooow day! I'm gonna get out of here and dream of many clues to come! See you all tomorrow!

Where else should/could we look?

Pff, it's allready 14.30 PM here and there is still no podcast... I hope the DJ Dan podcast will air soon....

And allmost even more than that, let there be some activity on Rachels Blog (by either Rachel or Gidgetgirl)!! It's getting really frustrating now...

this is wierd that we have not had a clue in 4 days. maybe rachel blake was captured by THF???

could be, but then what can we do about it?

or maybe she went to get better acting lessons that is why we have not seen or heard from her in a while

On the Perachel / Rasephone debate: I asked Mandrake is what his stance on the matter is. His reply: What do you think... I think we both know a platypus when we see one.

Heh.

the hanso foundation abducted rachel and forced her to take acting lessons. then they are gonna release her so she can do a better job on her video blogs

7/10/2006 07:55:00 AM  
Blogger chucklez3 said...

i think they're two people......sort of.

I still think they are "dipping" into the genetic elixirs a bit over at hanso.

I think ONE of the two (Rachel or Persephone) is a "bad twin".

well, it's ONE of my theories, anyway.

but aside from this, THROW US A BONE ALREADY!!!!

sheesh.

Well when platypus were first discovered - western zoologists thought that it was a fake.

Also they are one of only five mammals that lay eggs. The males have a poisonous spur on their back legs.

The other interesting fact I discovered on wiki was that they are the only mammal who when hunting are able to follow the body electricity of their prey.

Is any of this related? I'm so fed up of waiting I think everything is a clue!!!

rachel is really a platypus in desguise

First time posting, so please forgive me if this has been discussed...

I was on the Sublymonal.com website this morning and typed in whatthe? as the code (which I found in a youtube.com movie from the sublymonal site). It took me to a screen, a red button that said "don't push the button". And when I looked at the source code for the page it says "Look on the plane. Namaste".

Apologies again if this is old news, but I don't recall anything about "look on the plane".

so that means THF wants to abduct her and run tests on her because she is a platypus in disguise

I have a question.

Isn't there only ONE type of platypus?

If so, then why is it necessary for people to always say, "duck-billed platypus"??? I mean, is there an eagle-billed platypus out there somewhere??

kinda' unnecessary if you ask me. it's sorta' understood that they have duck's bill, so-to-speak.
