Admin Announcement & DJ Dan Update

Announcement
We wanted to let everyone know about a minor adjustment we have made to our blog. We will now display only the 20 latest posts on our front page and the rest will be archived by the month that they were posted. You will now see links to archived items in the sidebar to the right.

We made this adjustment as a response to several emails about problems with our feed being recognized by iTunes. After troubleshootizing in Feedburner, we realized that our feed was way TOO BIG. From now on, any media in the latest 20 posts (pdf documents, video, or audio) should be available in iTunes for free for those who have a (free) subscription to our podcast. If you haven't subscribed yet, you should. It's pretty cool.

Consequently, the front page of this blog & the RSS feed should load much faster! Hope this helps and doesn't cause anyone any inconvenience or confusion. Looking forward to another fun week...

DJ Dan Update
DJ Dan give us a few more details about this Friday's live show. Amongst other things, he give us an email address to send him questions.

Hey in slow days like these, I like to think of theories about the show, so I posted some theories that I bet someone is going to call me insane for. If you want to check them out, I have links to em(they are on the fuselage) and I will warn you three are about vincent and pretty out there, I hate that dog and the last one is about underwater hatches.

Moving from end of previous thread

From Wikipedia: nanite
The word "nanobot" (also "nanite" or "nanogene") is often used to indicate this fictional context and is an informal or even pejorative term to refer to the engineering concept of nanorobots
Nanorobotics is the technology of creating machines or robots at or close to the scale of a nanometre
Some hold the view that nanorobots capable of replication outside of a restricted factory environment do not form a necessary part of a productive nanotechnology

Rossum's Universal Robots, note the date of the blog entry - Again, the "numbers" reversed and plugged into Julian Day Calender, to acquire March 4, 1948 <-Better take another look at that date.

COULD the NUMBERS be a part of the predictive ability of the Valenzetti Equation?

Oh, and good idea about the 20 clue thing, it used to only show the very first week summary (sad to think back of the clues back then, it was so exciting, not really having an idea about what the clues would be. Now they are all the same and not giving us anything new). Also, the podcast said that most of the old major contributers have stopped commenting. Please come back if anyone is reading this and you used to comment all the time. It is also time for lurkers to come and get more involved (AKA me among them, that's what i'm trying to do) because there are only three or four major commenters left, and there are fewer and fewer comments each post. So everyone please get more involved.

Ty- guess it is new then yippee I found something finally- yeah me...lol- I think that the reason for the lack of comments is a lot of people got sick of this stage and come back once a week to getthe glyphs. If there's no challenge to keep em coming back- why would they?

8/07/2006 08:02:00 AM  
Blogger Painki11er said...

We should brainstorm some questions to ask DJ Dan until we start to get some glyphs. Sorry if i'm being really annoying with all these posts, but I'm just trying to think of things to do on slow days and get more people involved.

Blogger Painki11er said...

Lostnuts, you're right, there is no reason to come back unless they say, gave us coordinates or a clue to where something is in the real world and we have to work together and figure out where it is and someone finds the glyph.

Just wanted to clerify, that I'm not trying to spam the comments area, I'm just posting this under the new topic. I woun't be posting anything more about this unless directly asked.

-----

The members of S.H.A.D.E. are getting out of hand, and have now started a spam campaign to try and get DJ Dan to join them. They have already sent spam e-mails to:

- ABC and Disney Marketing Department
- ABC Media Relations - Jennifer de la Rosa Verti
- ABC Public Relations - Tracy Brawley & Chris DiIorio
- Sr. VP of Marketing, Advertising and Promotions at ABC - Mike Benson
- World News Tonight, Nightline, John Stossel and 20/20

I don't know about you guys, but I'm getting fed up with their antics, so I started a petition to get them to stop their spam campaigns before they ruin the ARG for the rest of us.

Sign the petition here:

I'll add that to my brainstorm sheet. If it happens, I'm going to be ready. Don't you think she'll eventually give one or more out to one of us? It'll probably be JustWillow since she's at the top of the leader board.

Hello all-
I just read the previous comments about people who used to post regularly notposting anymore. I am sorry but I am one of the guilty few. I used to come to this site times a day- read all th eposts and take part in all the hooplah- I was SO involved I was close to loosing my job. I WAS ADDICTED In the same way I am sad things have slowed down to this pace, I am actually glad. But TPTB didn't ween us off the cut it COLD TURKEY, I went thru some withdraw but now I'm just over it. I don't find myslef hanging on every word written or spoken. I could almost care less. I am sorry if this disappoints some but I am disappointed in the game. It's like eating the whole box of ceral and cap' crunch forgot to put the toy in my box. I wish it wasn't this way-

I feel like I am leaving a good relationship turned bad. I miss the fun we used to have,but things just aren't the same.
It's not you it's ME. I am not saying we'll never get back together, but it's not healthy for me right now and i need to explore other avenues. and all the other lil LINE ppl use when they "break UP"
This part of the game makes me not even care what "THE TRUTH" really is. I am happy with hearing it thru the grapevine or 2nd hand- and I never thought i'd get to this place- I used to fly the cyber space and try to "untangle" the world wide web of clues. but not these glyphs just bore the F*CK out of me. piecing together 70 something lil clips to see a video that is released at such a slow pace my 88yr old grandma can move quicker.
I miss the old LOST EXPERIENCE now i just feel I LOST THE EXPERIENCE.
If it gets better and ther eis actually anything left to comment on - I WILL, but until then I lurk , like a criminal near the police station lurking in the shadows. I'm still listening but don't have much to say.

TPTB if you hear us--do something, do anything- it was nice to hear there was a glyph in a comic book window in another country - but sad not the US. Do me a favor tie one to a brick, set it on fire and throw it thru my front window. LIVEN THINGS UP A BIT

PS - sorry for typos but i just went on a typing rampage and am at work trying to keep my job that wasn't as important as this game 2 months ago. now my job it where my attention it

Actually, the "pyramids" clue from DJ Dan was a way to find one of the first July podcasts, I believe ... it activated the link associated with the pyramid picture at the bottom of the page, and when you clicked on it, you were brought to the podcast.

Painki11er-- I feel you - seriously, but it's not as fun as it used to be - from previous info given this is part 3 of 5. parts 1 nd 2 were exciting and fast paced, part 3 BLOWS so far, I hope part 4 picks up but if the majority get into the habit of just checking in once a week and aren't "missing anything" by doing so don't you think it's going to be jsut as simple to check in one week and find out " WHAT THE HECK THE NUMBERS MEAN." quote unquote?

I know the long term goal - staying on the path is difficult, people are loosing interest- i being one of them. I don't feel the need to get up in the middle of the night and run to the PC anymore, I am saddened by it. I want more- I've been lured in only to feel as if i've been mislead. I'm sorry if you don't agree, it's great that you are just as excited as weh this thing started but I can;t even catch a rerun of the show- ABC is screwing with us, TPTB are screwing with us, I don't like it- This is how I feel Ia m not saying I am not playing , just not as diligenty as I once was. I had even gotten my manager in work involved in the game so i wouldn't get fired for surfing the web for clues cause he was doing it too. I at one time was dedicated, nw just dead

2costa- i totally belive this game is tied into the show- i see the "ties" now and have plenty of theories and have come to believe these theories because of THIS GAME- I am just sad that it has slowed down and we are reduced to being handed glyphs and having to take "others word for it" on where the glyph came from-

answer me this- of ALL the glyphs released how many have WE (TLEC) found?
when we are in stage 1 and 2 how much of OUR partcipation did it take to solve a clue?

ANSWER: A helluva a lot more than we are participating now.
We are not needed or even being used- no one likes being used but i don;t like feeling useless either.
so take it for what you want
Y'all can be mad at me for voicing what many of us are thinking but not saying because we don't want to be bashed and flamed on these boards.
I am still here I am not leave TLEC- i just dont; have much to say about these glyphs- and don;t feel like my opinion makes much of a difference in discovering or unlocking the clips. that's the point iam trying to make- before we worked together to solve a clue, now we chat and wait for it to handed to us, punch it in on HE.com hit save sequence and that's it- wait again

this is all i am saying I am actually complaining- no one likes to hear people complain but I am not deny the "ties that bind" and the importance of the message, just that TPTB and ABC is making it rather boring , maybe THEY are having a hard time competing with the begining of the game themselves. may their minds are churning trying to find NEW ways to make this exciting, MAYBE THEY ARE BRINSTORMING- meanwhile we wait

back to work I go- i'll be lurking :) keep your heads up

2costa-

You do seem to be in here all by yourself... why don't you read what everyone else is typing so you can get your ansers? LOL

The PYRAMIDS thing is not only old, but since ComicCon there are a also NEW people getting involved in TLE. It's not lame that it's still there, but maybe you should go back and read through the TLEC archives so you can know as much about the game that you can discuss the game and not just ask questions. The research and finding your own aswers are fun, too!!

TLE and LOST are related, BUT you don't have to have watched either Season 1 or 2 of the show to be involved in TLE. Knowledge of the show and making the connection are fun to me, but they can let people have their own set of experiences and they will probable rent or buy season 1 & eventually season 2. Effective marketing, yeah mo' money, baby!!

Remember Doc Jensen's article about Dwights, Micheals, and Jim/Pam's? (It was Doc Jensen, right?) Well, now we know that he gets insider information and is quasi-official. Maybe he was telling us something.

Act 1 was for the Dwights. Act 2 was to draw in the Micheal's. Act 3 they're trying to reach even the Jim/Pam's. The only problem is that they're losing the Dwights. Oh well, Act 4 & 5 are up for grabs.

Marcus: I copied all of your nano stuff from the last comment thread. I'm collecting stuff for a nano article maybe on the Research blog. Do you have any more? You seem more knowledgeable about the subject than me. I only catch a science article about it now and then.

Somehow nanotech doesn't seem in flavor with other verified work they've been doing - removing organs, conducting psychology and para-psychology experiments, investigating adaptation in humans and animals to extreme environments, etc.... Look at how old the Dharma computers were. I don't have anything but a gut feeling right now, but it's telling me the nanotech track isn't quite right because it's too modern or lab intensive or something. I'm dissappointed because nanotech would explain a lot.

Hey twinkle-

There is probably a very good reason for the computer in the "hatch" being so simplistic as it was from the 70s and it only had one specific function, but we do know there are other hatches on the island and look at how much up-to-date (advanced or decor ;-) the one where Clare was held captive was...

Nanotech could be just as simple as the vaccine and something that can later you at a molecular and/or genetic level, but the applications are enormous. Just as simple as the examples used on wiki (i.e. material for stain resistent pants or enhanced sun protection).

The only thing that TPTB were particularly adamant about was that the cloud/smoke creature was not a cloud of nanobots... they have not denied its use for Hanso & Dharma as I did mention that at a cellular level (ours and not the phones) that it could rejuvenate cells to the point of stopping and even reverse aging for example.

If you want me to read some of what you are doing, then I could get relevant info to you as my tenacity and endurance for vast amounts of info are huge and I could bombard you with unnecessary & confusing stuff. I already do that to enough people on here [hehehe]

ya but marcus that podcast is readily available in his archives so the pyramid code is redundent now, Rachel ecapsulated what happened until comicon on her sight. Marcus what was the deal with her sight getting hacked. I took it as hanso planting something on her site. When zander revealed about the mathamaticians he talked about the glyphs from the show, then the coundown clocks glyphs were on her site, but I thought and many others have expressed that the numbers turning out to be the valenzetti equation would be anti-climactic. So I think they tried to pull it back and add the IT guy saying he has been helping mittlewerk all alond and rachel"true identity" being the new payoff. That beach recording seems to point to the new video we are compiling now. To go with my new turn theory we have the new clip saying that our operatives confirmed the figure is there, sorry I'm paraphrasing. That seems to debunk the autistic mathamatician stuff we learned earlier, So the organ harvesting and other stuff was probably all red herrings,but to what end. I think they are gonna make it like doc jensoen said and say hanso was orchestrating this whole thing and all the bad stuff about them was fake and the work they are doing is good work compared to the scandalous stuff we heard first.

I haven't done much work yet on a nano article. But if you find something let me know.

2costa-

Pyramids is still a link to TLE and an ad for Sprite which they've paid for, so I'm sure they want it to stay up ;-)

As to the new part of the film, just because TWM says that "operative" have confirmed that data, doesn't mean that what we've already learned is wrong... He probably isn't going to tell his scientist the exact nature of the Vik institute as some were savants other were scientists working with the savants and/or on their own, etc.

The problem with the numbers which are a fibanacci sequence, I believe (like people who've read the DaVinci code are somewhat familiar with), but if TPTB tried to give us the actual equation, then that would be too easy to pick apart.

I also believe that the "hack" of Rachel's computer/site was a cover-up to a continuity error in TLE when the info on the missing organs, etc. that came from the South African newspaper changed from what we previously saw/read.

Rachel's identity (still only "probably" persephone as she's not as good at this spy stuff ;-) has always been an interest plotwise, but she doesn't want it out yet...
Just take all the info that we learn and if you can't use it at the moment, keep it on the backburner as it may prove useful later. Don't throw anything out unless you have FACTS to back it up... there is still a lot left up in the air at the moment.

Now funny you should mention the Hanso orchestrations as I posted yesterday...

********An RB reality breaker********

Strangely, when I thought I'd already made up my mind about RB=P, a discussion that I had with my brother, the other day, (he is one of those people being able to catch up during Act III and he was having trouble believing our bumbling RB could be the ever so sly Persephone) it led to some alternate theorizing. Along with my Bro leading me into his probability that Rachel is not Persephone (NOW bear with me for some minor rambling as it's interesting)

We contemplated that Rachel is not who we have been led to believe and is a fake or a plant sent by Hanso to eventually lead us through a PR campaign that turns out to be just what the Organization needed for their global marketing campaign. I mean, come on, TPTB would not have hired such a bad actress or at least would have had someone who understood the FULL storyline as a director for Rachel/TAMKARB*. So, you see, she was so unbelievable in some of those videos, etc., so that it would foreshadow and eventually be believable that she wasn't what she seemed and that she's not really against Hanso.

*TAMKARB - The Actress More Known As Rachel Blake

Please no comments as to my offending Jamie, I've been through this and gave her a certain amount of kudos...

Someone up above was suggesting we try to come up with DJ Dan questions collaboratively. I need something to help me procrastinate work - that sounds good enough! I think the obvious question is whether we can really trust RB. Another one that pops to mind is to ask him why he dislikes THF, or more specifically the proof he has that they are doing something wrong. And, is Dan just an anagram of DNA? What is that telling us about THF!!??!

Marcus, the post was long but worth th read- I am agreeing with you here in the RB=P thing not going to wish you dead for pointing out here bad acting and lack of knowledge of the show and story line. As a fan of DaVinci code, i have put that under the microscope as well, I agree the #'s, a fibanacci sequence of numbers at that, if THE EQUATION (y'all know the one) was given to us it'd be torn to shreds by US like rabid dogs.

Twinkle - I love the "change a lightbulb jokes." they really got me to laughing.

I do think the "proof that THF is bad" is a good candidate since it's a back-door way to check the validity of DJ Dan and RB and get a peek at what the Spider protocol might be. Maybe we could phrase it like, "My cat was a research subject in THF's life extension project, and THF saved Foofy's life. How dare you say that THF is bad?"

Hy guys and gals,
I have a new theory about the numbers. The lostpedia page is locked for editing so I'll plug it here.
Last week I theorized that the numbers in the log printout in the Pearl Station represent the hours and minutes since a particular event in the 28th century BC, namely something to do with Fu Hsi, legendary ruler of China (traditional dates: 2852 BC-2738 BC). According to tradition Fu Hsi had the arrangement of the trigrams of the Yi Jing (I Ching, Book of Changes) revealed to him supernaturally. The trigrams, as we all know, form part of the Bagua which is used as the logo of the Dharma Initiative. The starting timestamp for the log could be, for example, the number of hours that have passed since the time the trigrams were revealed to Fu Hsi. (How one would establish that exact time is a different story but the years fit anyway). Check out the images of statues of Fu Hsi holding the Bagua at http://www.taoism.net/ikuantao/origin/home.htm

Now, the number format on the printout is xxxxxxxx:yy (hrs:m) such as 41602066:29.
Ten figures, just like 4815162342.
What if we interpret the numbers as 48151623:42 and do the same calculations (divide by 24 hours, then divide by 365.2564 days)?
We get 5492.9 years. Substract 1970 years (start of Dharma Initiative) and we get a date of 3522BC. What happened at that time? Mythology - and to a certain degree science - hold that that is roughly the time of The Great Flood
(3520 BC plus or minus 21 years, see http://www.texnews.com/1998/religion/letters0110.html)

And in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Flood we can read this:
The story of a Great Flood sent by God or the gods to destroy civilization as an act of divine retribution is a widespread theme in myths. The stories of Noah and his ark in Genesis, Matsya in the Puranas scriptures of Hinduism, and Utnapishtim in the Epic of Gilgamesh are among the most familiar versions of these myths. A large percentage of the world's cultures past and present have stories of a "great flood" that devastated earlier civilization.
Mankind had gone bad, corrupt, evil and God punished them with the Great Flood, so in a way 'humanity extinguished itself'.
Another good article on Noah's Flood is here:
http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v17/i3/flood.asp
(and Vincent is in it...)

Moreover, there is link between Fu Hsi and the Great Flood myth.
From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Flood#China The ancient Chinese civilization concentrated at the bank of Yellow River near present day Xian also believed that the severe flooding along the river bank was caused by dragons (representing gods) living in the river being angered by the mistakes of the people.
It was at the bank of the Yellow River that Fu Hsi received knowledge of the correct order of trigrams in the Bagua.

So here is a question for DJDan:
Do The Numbers relate to The Great Flood? (past ... and perhaps even future)

Blogger oodles said...

kylelane,
I wrote "and perhaps even future" not in reference to the figures given but I mean IF (and that's a big if) my theory is right, perhaps the deGroots picked that figure to point at a past event because they anticipate Valenzetti's prediction to come true in the form of another great flood.
The figures as I interpreted them point further back into history the bigger they are. They don't point to the future.

uh oh, hold on, now I get you! You mean since 41602066:29 (one of the figures on the log) probably relates to 2004 (John and Mr. Eko only took a few pages which contained the date of the crash) then this could equally be some kind of countdown. Good thinking!
Ok, just did the maths. In that case the extinction would still be about 747 years away though. Maybe not. But good thought. Keep 'em comin'!

So I just went back and read DJ Dan transcripts that Matt the Pale posted on the research blog. His style seems to be short on substance and long on rhetoric. I'm not sure he'll ever give us real meat, but it would be interesting to ask
"What specific incident caused you to begin this campaign against the Hanso Foundation?" and a follow up "If it was Persephone's hacks, how do you know she is/was credible?"

Lena: Actually I only read enough to get the sense of things and to konw that it's not obvious if he's in game or out. If he's not in game, then MG may either be a pathologial liar, or a sadist who likes to play with our minds, or someone really addicted to alternate reality personas.

So far I'm more scared by MG than Mittlework

So would anyone else think that a better idea would be to release all 70 clips, or any number really, and put the glyphs on the insides of Sprite caps? That way we could all be searching for glyphs and Obey Our Thirst's at the same time....

As for questions for DJ Dan how about:

What have you been doing for the last month?

Have you heard what happened at Comic Con? Where were you while that was happening? What was your reaction?

Have you been gathering glyphs on hansoexposed.com like we have and how many times has it failed to save your sequence correctly?

gobe i loved that idea and i think they had a thought about it but its kinda area intrusive i.e. do they just do it in U.s. of everywhere and also there arent that many people whe play the lost experiance, thers a lot more hud like a free ford blah blah i fu find the winning ticked inside special sprite packs

robc-look at Team Lena's research blog. It has links to everything you need to know about the Hoffit film, the film on YouTube, and everything Lena and her crew have uncovered...check it out...if anything it is VERY interesting.

ty thrasher and ange!

twinkle: TOO FUNNY!!! But on a serious note about MG. Remember (looking at it as IN GAME FOR A MOMENT) MG is some guy who simply found the reel of film. Dont think he is bad guy or part of HS. In game wise he is just a presenter and an explanation of where the film came from sorta kinda LOL. Did that make ANY sence?????? LOL

HERE IS AN IMPORTANT FACT TO ME:

The reason this film did not show up in a in-game website is, if it was stuck in MG's celler for years, WHY WOULD the ingame bad guys or good guys even have it?? See what I mean?

hansoexposed.com sucked donkey balls before when we got a few clips per day.
but getting zero?
were creative enough to make our own show.
aww the good old days of rachelblake.com why didn't I appreciate her more. And now she's left me. don't look at me... :(

I have been saying the hoffit film is real for a long time. TPTB saying it is fake just goes with this new act of the game where we don't know what is real. I think it is interesting that some of the same shots from the hanso website orentation seem to be from that stock film about light. Lena what do u think of the goblet film???it has that back story that it came in a dharma envelopeor hanso very simular to the cheesy story of finding it in the widow hoffits basement

I have a feeling that TLE is going to end open ended where we think there really is a coverup. Hanso is definetly based on albert nobel,remeber the speech about dynamite from season 1..

In game he's cool. If he's not in game, he freaks me out.

And the videos are more than just interesting. If they are in game they show us how THF was thinking and what lines of research they were exploring. It gives us more informed fodder for our theories. I didn't examine the videos in detail yet, but I'm sure there will be clues along those lines, IF it is in game.

I also think gary troup is still alive on the island or never existed. His name is an anagram for purgatory, that is just to convient for reality or the show. The exec saying gary troup was definetly pulled into the engine in the pilot holds no whater, why would some exec know that,if the writers probably have not even decided yet, because they want us to think that,the answer lies in why they want us to think that

the reason I always bring up the goblet film is most of the others fakes are a combination of old stock clips put together with some new edititng tricks, the goblet film is all original material, with an actor that does a darn good job of matching the tone and background of the lost tv orentation films

8/07/2006 03:53:00 PM

2costa, could you share a link for that goblet video again?? I totally blew that one off long time ago, now I dont remember why LOL. Is that the one where there is a girl instead of marvin candle?

Here is something else I cant help but wonder about...

I know its a LONG shot and most likely NOT anything, but in the hoffittsfilms.blogspot there is a picture of the desk he found the film in. BEHIND it is a word painted on the wall. Future frag? WHO KNOWS right now.

Robc - Go to MG's site here and watch the video on the bottom or go to Youtube and typing Hoffit films...

After seeing the video and all, I was freaked out that THF could have been a real company, in the real world...could fact be creepier than fiction?

I think the Hoffit blog is just someone playing with us... MG/JWH is behind the videos, but that doesn't necessarily mean the Hanso Industries video is real within the game. I still like looking into it all

Blogger Lostpedian said...

I have chosen not to search for glyphs at all this week, in protest of the general pace and purpose of this act of the game. The whole point of this glyph hunt is to "train" us to surf around all these official show websites and, of course, to their advertisers.

I am confident that other people will find glyphs and report them, but I am equally sure that I don't want to blindly follow along the course "they" have set for us.

thinbluemime - I dunno if you meant to come off as a smug idiot, but you managed it well.

I suppose you have a script like ixalon's (http://www.se-nse.net/ixalon/codes.php) which watches http://hansoexposed.com/xml/statistics for when people post new sequences, then downloads the .flv files from http://hansoexposed.com/fragments/(glyphcode).flv ?

Why wait!

So DJDan isn't going to be an actual phone in? That is a real shame. I guess they were too worried about the quality of it. Nevermind, Well at least now the time he'll be broadcasting no longer matters.

Which brings up another interesting point. Why is it "Live"? If we aren't phoning in and are instead emailing questions why does it need to be live at all.

The answer is - cos something important is going to happen on the show. I wonder what. Well, as long as they don't kill off Dan, I don't mind. That'd virtually kill the game off for me.

Okay yes, I am largely posting just because I haven't posted anything yet today and I don't want people to think I'm dead. Lol.
