Looks like ACT III is about to begin.. at least that's what I get out of this email..

Dear friends,

Thank you for supporting the Retrievers of Truth. You unwavering loyalty and patronage are what keep me working so hard to get the truth out there about the Labrador. Things are going very well for the organization and for myself. I would not be speaking to you if it were not for your belief.

Today I would like to talk to you about something that has effected us all at one time or another - change. Change is the nature of existence. Do you think the now mighty and mentally superior Labrador retriever was always such a symbol of canine superiority? Definitely not.

I myself have experienced change in my life. An awakening or rebirth of sorts. And from that change came personal growth. A flowering, if you will. When a young yellow is but a pup he hasn't the slightest inkling of the changes he will endure. He goes though life as a pet only to later become the true master.

I can't tell you how to overcome change but I can tell you to look to the future. Aim for the stars. Pick a point in your mind that you want to reach and allow yourself to change - to adapt and be ready for anything that might come your way.

Like a wise old yellow once told me, "If I didn't change my mind, I'd be thinking the same things every single day."

Yours truly, Dr. Vincent "Wally" Bole

Okay guys...If you didn't know, I've been gone since Thursday. I've been reading comments like crazy but I'm having some trouble putting things together. Here's what I've got:

1. Massive dissention on what was actually communicated by Rachel's last video. Questions about her well-being, the identity of GG, the reality of Hugh's death, the voice at the door, etc abound and there are NO SOLID ANSWERS at this point. Just lots of really good speculation.

2. Mittlewerk's video should be taken largely as Verizon marketing and it's doubtful that it holds much along the lines of clues (beside the fact that he "looks" younger).

3. Retrievers of Truth are acting strangely again...possibly busy at crafting a really elaborate way to help us find another video or document.

Is that basically it? What else am I missing?

RoT has been stirring for the first time in 2 weeks, so I'm sure they have another clue to deploy... how they go about it is up to them, but I'm hoping for some puzzles/riddles... even tho we guessed it last time, they still made it fun...

superdifey...I was just joking around! Hope you know that. You're FIRST in my book!

Guys, here's how I think TPTB operate: ARG planners decide the plot, the types of clues they create (videos, pics, documents, etc), the order they will be disseminated, and which commercial partners will host what. ARG planners are ALWAYS responsible for the END CONTENT and the TIME TABLE but they leave space for commercial partners like Sprite, Verizon, Jeep, and Monster to work out the PATHWAYS for discovering the important END CONTENT.

All that to say...I take most of the RoT stuff as a pathway meant to occupy our time and attention with Verizon-ish things. Not to spoil anybody's fun, but I don't think we need to read too much into every detail of what they say and do because history tells us that when it's time for us to get a clue, TPTB will give it to us like what they did with the SPIDER PROTOCOL letter.

belly, you're right though. Finding the letter was half the fun!

I guess I'm more of the type of person who likes to step back and try to understand the bigger picture and this latest Rachel video has made everything a little blurry for me. I find the RoT stuff to be a distraction rather than a fun new endeavor...I guess that just shows how little my mind can handle at one time! Or maybe it's just a testimony to how valuable it is to have different personality types working on this thing together.

I'm going to keep dwelling on some big picture plot stuff.

kenshinfan65...that was exactly what I did. I was frustrated in the beginning of this show because it seemed many people got the clues before the rest of the world knew there was a clue. I got irritated that it took computer genuiouses to figure some things out and with so many "spoof" sites out there, I wasn't sure if I found a clue or found a hoax. Turns out it was always hoax for me, but thesse last few weeks I have been able to play a long better and it seems so slow now. I would like it to go back to when I was the dummy and playing catch up!

Good one noblelawyer. :)
Hey, I'll be back in New Orleans next Tuesday through Saturday!

Just had a "captain obvious" moment regarding the Helgus Antonius. Sorry if it's been mentioned before/is totally off the subject. It is a massive boat full of train-car-sized crates. If they are onto the exact date of Armageddon via Valenzetti calculations and are heading to an island with unique properties that will help them survive the fallout and re-develop humanity eugenics style, won't they need a butt-load of supplies to last them for years?

Helgus is simply full of everything from clothes and food to construction equipment, building materials, vehicles, computer systems, libraries, etc. Everything necessary to build, maintain, and proliferate a new society on a relatively undeveloped island. It's not the high-tech Paik boat we heard about early on, it's just a delivery boat.

What does this have to do with Valenzetti and the various interests of the Dharma Initiative? If the island is a fusion R&D plant and isn't a haven from Armageddon or at least a preparation/research facility for a eugenics-ish repopulation plan, where do Valenzetti & Dharma fit in the picture?

admin: well, the island will need power correct? i feel thf and dharma are working towards this "better tomorrow" on every scientific angle they can. not only create a race of "chosen ones" to survive armageddon, but give them the tools to start with advanced technology rather than stepping back to life in caves with campfires and rocks as tools. give them the most advanced medicine available, provide them with endless, clean power, give them a sophisticated ocean-going vessel to venture off the island when nuclear winter comes to an end.

the question is still how do they get the containers off the ship. I do not think they are going to an undeveloped island. The ship shown did not have any cranes. It is dependent on docks to unload it. Are they just going to push the containers off?

I think they are going to a different port and then will transport their container or containers by truck or train to wherever they need them.

Thrasher, why are you sending naughty emails to Idaho Girl? :)

littletigerone, it's okay.

heather's brain, have you check the homepage lately. There are 4 admins of this site and we update it a couple of times a day. Clue #74 contains the info that LT is talking about.

lost, I think AIM for the stars may be referencing Aol Instant Messenger and this time we may be chatting with Rachel herself instead of the RoT posters. I got an email this morning telling me that OpenersHep was signed on for a few minutes.

That'd be cool.

Admin, as OZ said, THF wiull try to give their "superior" race advanced technology. Also, the fusion enrgy theory doesn't overule the idea of a RF fallout shield,It's just another POSSIBLE way THF could use the many positive effects of an EM field. They could still have the armageddon haven on the island, and use the fusion energy to help their "superior" race thrive.

oxillini, okay...that makes good sense. You're right. THF isn't just trying to survive nuclear winter, they are attempting to THRIVE in the wake of it. So they're holding the secret of fusion until after armageddon b/c they believe Valenzetti's predictions are inevitable? Wouldn't you think that the introduction of fusion into the equation might change some of his calculations? Wouldn't it be ironic if fusion technology is leaked and ends up being what causes the Valenzetti event?

noblelawyer, maybe there is more than one island. I believe this to be a possibility...that the Others "live" on a different island and only come to the Lostie island for certain purposes.

Another thing that has been bogging my mind lately is why we never actually saw any THF stuff on the island (apart from the reference to THF in the Orientation video). If they are bringing supplies to the island, why aren't any Hanso logos on it? I mean, who is making those supply drops? Hanso or Dharma? Who hired Kelvin if THF says that Dharma Iniative was cancelled in 1987?

*************************** spoiler ***************************

I think the Dharma Iniative might be working on his own now. Maybe Dharma is run by the Others now. They have their own supplies and do not report to THF anymore. Or maybe they were abandoned on the island by the THF, who knows!

Anyway, I think Mittelwerk doesn't know exactly what is going on the island... Maybe he's going to find the losties drinking mojitos with the Others.

agree with noble and lostluvr. perhaps it's taking the containers to the island where 'others' live. That island can't be too far away if they're only coming over on that tiny boat that they used to capture Walt..er..WAAAAAAAALLLLLLTT (after watching Michael, I just thought you had to yell it really drawn out like that).

the ARG is, in general, supposed to add background to the show, and not really plot lines. The background we're receiving is pretty relevant to anyone who's seen the first few episodes of Season 2, and by most accounts the UK and AU are nearly finished with season 2. It's all good.

TLE is seperate from the game, Yes, playing can enhance watching the show, but is not necessary.

example of how TLE enhances show enjoyment is fact that in game we learned about Widmore, and in show learned about Penelope Widmore and her father and their ties to Desmond and therefore the island. But didn't need to be playing game to enjoy that part of show.

team_lena and fastenyourseatbelts:

It just came to me as I re-read the new RoT newsletter.

"to overcome change" - self-explanatory

"look to the future" - sometime later

"Aim for the stars" - look for BroadBandBeatnik, Fiberoptician, iobiSeeingYou, or DSLerator on AIM

My bet would be BroadBandBeatnik on AIM -- he worked with the servers, he would be most likely candidate to be administrator for password changes

So, IMHO, BBB will be on AIM and that's where the new password will come from

7/17/2006 06:47:00 PM  
Blogger belly0fdesire said...

But doesn't it seem as tho broadbandbeatnik has left the resistance and joined the Empire by putting the Mittlewerk video up on broadbandstories? To me it seems like he's defected and the password change is a result of that... time will tell tho. I'm hoping that they make an appearance on AIM, whatever it all means...

When I saw Mandrake Wigs entry on Myspace:

Good thoughts linklane. Though I would be suspect of anything BBB shared since he's cleaned out his desk at Verizon. I've added them all just in case. If nothing else, TLEC has certainly expanded my computer prowess.

Blogger linklane said...

My theory on BBB....

he did not defect to the other side

I have been of the opinion that is interest in RB has lead him on a crusade to help her.

As RB referred to Darla in the last video and how they "knew" of each other, I think RB has a network of resources who "knew" of her. The disappearance of BBB seems more to me him rushing to her aid.....

I previous posts, I've indicated BBB is possibly the one who was knocking on the door.

Now a further stretch of my theory is that BBB=DJDan. This may be pushing it. Some have poo-poo'd the idea of BBB=DJDan because DJDan does not seem "geek" enough as the skillset probably in BBB. But, I think that could be a good cover for DJDan persona -- deny, deny, deny.

Here's a question about the Helgus ship. If it's going to some island (not the Lost island, I'm convinced), who's going with it? Hugh's a goner (or at least on the outs), PT seems like he's not buying MIttelwerk's guff no more...who is going other than Mittelwerk?

I don't know if anyone noticed this, but awhile ago, the ROT site seemed to be down. rot.com worked, but whenever I tried to type anything into the password box, it gave me a Runtime Error screen. Maybe that meant that they were updating? *crosses fingers*

(If so, yay)

Hi guys, i just want your attention to this... Its not inside Lost game (yet ou never???) But this thing came to me as a very weird curiosity, which you can decide if its related to the island´s location or not... (remember this: i read that the Lost authors told that you´d be amazed if you could have a helicopter view from the island)

Please yake a look at...

http://www.hollow-earth.org/diary.html

Read the Admiral Byrd´s diary, it contains information about an island in the middle os polar arctic. Sounds completely crazy, but the island has elements that lead to the same island described in the diary

This is related to the hollow earth theory, which has many sites through the web... please take a closer look...

I mentioned this s LONG time back, but never heard anything further....

Any idea if the page http://webmail.thehansofoundation.org/
is a page that we are supposed to be able to get into at some point??

If this has already been solved, can someone give me the login info?
