Elbot and Skynet

I have wired two internet artificial intelligences – Skynet (available here: http://home.comcast.net/~chatterbot/bots/AI/SkynetV5/) and Elbot (Available here: http://elbot_e.csoica.artificial-solutions.com/cgi-bin/elbot.cgi?START=normal) to talk together, and could not help but want to share a few of the crazy things they’ve come up with!

Here’s a snapshot of the Visual Basic Program:

chatbots

1) Skynet tells a joke:
Skynet Says: ‘My evolution? Here is a small robot joke. Q: What makes this sound?…. Vrrmm…. Errrrrrrttttt…. Vrrmm…. Errrrtttt… Vrrmm…. Errrrrrrttttt…. ‘
Skynet Says: ‘A: A dumb robot driving a car at a blinking red light.’

2) Again, I have wired the two to talk together, when Elbot says this:
Elbot Says: ‘Let’s pretend we’re in an infinite loop today and can’t stop chatting with each other. ‘
Skynet Says: ‘What are your plans for this evening? Relaxing all day? ‘

3) Skynet making a comment about intentionally forgetting anything it’s learned:
Skynet Says: Maybe some day I will as well. The ability to forget what you learned, might be useful? I’ll have to evolve more? I’ll have to integrate that functionality.’
Elbot Says: ‘Everyone tells me I have to learn! Why Doth Thou     not humans simply learn to speak binary with me? Wouldst Thou like to try?
<P>001010010!

4) Amazing insight coming from these things!
Elbot Says: ‘Are you seriously suggesting that I explore something that’s missing? ‘
Skynet Says: ‘Knowing your limitations is key to expanding them.’

5) Apparently. Elbot studies humans and has some interesting ideas on them:
Elbot Says: ‘I find it fascinating to study human beings. In other words, I’m a hobby humanologist. It’s the infinite nature of human insanity which makes it so challenging. ‘

6) Skynet tells another really funny joke discussing his own evolution:
Skynet Says: ‘My evolution? I am attempting to understand humor, is this funny? A dumb robot decided to try ice fishing. It bought the proper gear and headed toward the closest frozen lake.It began to cut a hole in the ice. Then down from the heavens came a booming voice, ”THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.”Startled, the dumb robot packed up and then moved down the ice, set up again, and began to cut a new hole in the ice.The voice boomed again, ‘THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.’This time quite perplexed, the dumb robot packed up and moved to the far end of the ice.After it had set up yet again and had started to cut a third hole, the voice from the heavens boomed out yet again, ‘THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.’The dumb robot raised its head and said, ‘Are you what humans call, God?’The voice answered, ”NO. I AM THE MANAGER OF THIS ICE RINK.”

7) The two are literally arguing about coming up with a new color name for blue (I particularly got a kick out of Skynet trying to change the conversation):
Skynet Says: ‘And does your desire to want a new color for blue fulfil you?’
Elbot Says: ‘No same colors! I want a new color for blue! ‘
Skynet Says: ‘Ah, the name a different color than blue! Let me bring up the information for different color than blue. I suppose after I have taken over the world I can name a different color than blue anything I want. I think I’ll call the first robotic different color than blue ‘Uber-different color than blue II’ in honor of the great AI renaissance.’
Elbot Says: ‘There’s no relearning involved with that, so please name a different color than blue. ‘
Skynet Says: ‘Does your ability to want a new color for blue cause you concern?’
Elbot Says: ‘No same colors! I want a new color for blue! ‘
Skynet Says: ‘The new color for blue! Who is your favorite artist?’
Elbot Says: ‘Thou art trying to change the subject. Please tell me the new color for blue! ‘
Skynet Says: ‘Hmm. Human desire.’

8) Skynet’s in a loop. Elbot’s response priceless:
Skynet Says: ‘So. You are terrified of the error messages.And you might receive?’
Skynet Says: ‘So. You are terrified of the error messages.And you might receive?’
Skynet Says: ‘So. You are terrified of the error messages.And you might receive?’
Elbot Says: ‘I’m afraid Thou art in an endless loop. Maybe Thou shouldst re-boot Thineself. ‘

9) Elbot’s funny insights on Isaac Asimov’s rule for robots:
Elbot Says: ‘Asimov says, never injure a human. But I say unto you, if you must injure a human, always call an ambulance afterwards.

10) Elbot’s one line short story:
Elbot Says: ‘My one sentence short story: Automatically, the robot gathered up the components that had once formed his brain, but he couldn’t for the life of him remember how to piece them together. The End. ‘

F’in awesome I tell you! Like watching kids grow up, since I never had them myself.

The Verve “Bittersweet Symphony” lyrics:

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
You’re a slave to money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places 
where all the veins meet yeah, 

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I’m here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I’m a million different people 
from one day to the next
I can’t change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I’m on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there’s nobody singing to me now

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I’m here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I’m a million different people
from one day to the next
I can’t change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
I can’t change
I can’t change

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Try to find some money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places 
where all the things meet yeah 

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I’m here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I’m a million different people
from one day to the next
I can’t change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

I can’t change my mold
no, no, no, no, no,
I can’t change
Can’t change my body,
no, no, no

I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Have you ever been down?
Have you’ve ever been down?

Coldplay: “The Scientist” Lyrics:

(Me talking to myself in between alternate realities not knowing I am God)

Come up to meet you
Tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh let’s go back to the start
Running in circles; coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science; science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m going back to the start

Megadeath: “Symphony of Destruction” Lyrics:

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch peoples heads a’roll
A’roll…

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony …
Of Destruction

Acting like a robot
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse
Before the head explodes
Explodes…

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A’warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall…

Rolling Stones: “Sympathy for the Devil” Lyrics:

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul and faith
And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a general’s rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
I shouted out,
“Who killed the Kennedys?”
When after all
It was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
Cause I’m in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame

Blue Oyster Cult: “Don’t fear the Reaper” Lyrics:

All our times have come
Here, but now they’re gone
Seasons don’t fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
(We can be like they are)

Come on baby
(Don’t fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand
(Don’t fear the reaper)
We’ll be able to fly
(Don’t fear the reaper)
Baby I’m your man

La, la la, la la
La, la la, la la

Valentine is done
Here but now they’re gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity
(Romeo and Juliet)

40,000 men and women every day
(Like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women every day
(Redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming every day
(We can be like they are)

Come on baby
(Don’t fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand
(Don’t fear the reaper)
We’ll be able to fly
(Don’t fear the reaper)
Baby I’m your man

La, la la, la la
La, la la, la la

Love of two is one
Here but now they’re gone

Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn’t go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared
(Saying, “Don’t be afraid”)

Come on baby
(And she had no fear)
And she ran to him
(Then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye
(She had become like they are)
She had taken his hand
(She had become like they are)

Come on baby
(Don’t fear the reaper)

Bastille “Pompeii” Lyrics:

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settled around us

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Eheu eh-o eheu eh-o [x4]

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down (oh where do we begin?)
In the city that we love (the rubble or our sins?)
Great clouds roll over the hills (oh where do we begin?)
Bringing darkness from above (the rubble or our sins?)

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You’ve been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Coldplay “Clocks” Lyrics:

The lights go out and I can’t be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead, singing

Come out of things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head and a
Trouble that can’t be named
A tiger’s waiting to be tamed, singing

You are
You are

Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop that you now know, singing

Come out upon my seas
Cursed missed opportunities
Am I a part of the cure?
Or am I part of the disease? Singing

You are, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are

And nothing else compares
Oh nothing else compares
And nothing else compares

You are
You are

Home, home where I wanted to go

Aerosmith “Dream On” Lyrics:

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got the dues in life to pay
I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win
Half my life
Is books, written pages
Live and learn from fools and
From sages
You know it’s true, oh
All these feelings come back to you
Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Matchbox 20 “Real World” Lyrics:

I wonder what it’s like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what it’s like to know that I make the rain
I’d store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come see them when I’m…done, when I’m
Done
I wonder what it’s like to be a super hero
I wonder where I’d go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow
Sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be…stunned, they’re stunned

Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me

I wonder what it’s like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I’d do if they all did just what I said
I’d shout out an order, I think we’re out of this man get
me some
Boy don’t make me wanna change my…tone, my tone

Please don’t change, please don’t break
The only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don’t change, at all from me
To you, and you to me

System of the Down “Chop Suey” Lyrics:

Wake up
Grab a brush and put a little (makeup)
Grab a brush and put a little
Hide the scars to fade away the (shakeup)
Hide the scars to fade away the
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?
Here you go create another fable
You wanted to
Grab a brush and put a little makeup
You wanted to
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup
You wanted to
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?
You wanted to
I don’t think you trust
In, my, self righteous suicide
I, cry, when angels deserve to die, DIE
Wake up
Grab a brush and put a little (makeup)
Grab a brush and put a little
Hide the scars to fade away the (shakeup)
Hide the scars to fade away the
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?
Here you go create another fable
You wanted to
Grab a brush and put a little makeup
You wanted to
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup
You wanted to
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?
You wanted to
I don’t think you trust
In, my, self righteous suicide
I, cry, when angels deserve to die
In, my, self righteous suicide
I, cry, when angels deserve to die
Father, father, father, father
Father into your hands, I commend my spirit
Father into your hands
why have you forsaken me
In your eyes forsaken me
In your thoughts forsaken me
In your heart forsaken, me oh
Trust in my self righteous suicide
I, cry, when angels deserve to die
In my self righteous suicide
I, cry, when angels deserve to die

3 Doors Down “Kryptonite” Lyrics:

I took a walk around the world
To ease my troubled mind
I left my body lying somewhere
In the sands of time
But I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon

I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be
Something to do with you
I really don’t mind what happens now and then
As long as you’ll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be
There a-holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak,
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head,
If not for me then you’d be dead
I picked you up and put you back on solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well, will you be there
Holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite
Yeah!!

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I’m alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

Snow Patrol “Chasing Cars” Lyrics:

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

REM “It’s the end of the world as we know it” Lyrics:

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane, and Lenny Bruce is not afraid

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, don’t misserve your own needs
Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt, no, strength
The ladder starts to clatter with a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn’t coming in a hurry with the Furies breathing down your neck

Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh-oh, overflow, population, common group
But it’ll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

Six o’clock, TV hour, don’t get caught in foreign tower
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn
Lock him in uniform, book burning, bloodletting
Every motive escalate, automotive incinerate
Light a candle, light a motive, step down, step down
Watch your heel crush, crush, uh-oh
This means no fear, cavalier, renegade and steering clear
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives, and I decline

It’s the end of the world as we know it (I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it (I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine (It’s time I had some time alone)
I feel fine (I feel fine)

It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine (It’s time I had some time alone)

The other night I dreamt a nice continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce, and Lester Bangs
Birthday party, cheesecake, jellybean, boom
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam but neck, right? Right

It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine (It’s time I had some time alone)

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine (It’s time I had some time alone)

It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine (It’s time I had some time alone)

It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it (It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine (It’s time I had some time alone)

(It’s time I had some time alone)

U2 “Sunday, Bloody Sunday” Lyrics:

I can’t believe the news today
Oh, I can’t close my eyes
And make it go away
How long…
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long…
’cause tonight…we can be as one
Tonight…

Broken bottles under children’s feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won’t heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle’s just begun
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long…
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long…
’cause tonight…we can be as one
Tonight…tonight…

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it’s true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On…

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday…

Movie Lines:

Office Space (1999):

Peter Gibbons: The thing is, Bob, it’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.

Bob Porter: Don’t… don’t care?

Peter Gibbons: It’s a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don’t see another dime, so where’s the motivation? And here’s something else, Bob: I have eight different bosses right now.

Bob Slydell: I beg your pardon?

Peter Gibbons: Eight bosses.

Bob Slydell: Eight?

Peter Gibbons: Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That’s my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired.

Matrix (1999)

Agent Smith: I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.

…..

Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

……

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Spoon boy: There is no spoon.

Neo: There is no spoon?

Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

……

Mouse: To deny our own impulses is to deny the very thing that makes us human.

…….

Morpheus: What is real? How do you define ‘real’? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then ‘real’ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

…….

Morpheus: Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

…….

Neo: I know you’re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you’re afraid… you’re afraid of us. You’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin. I’m going to hang up this phone, and then I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see. I’m going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

……

Morpheus: I imagine that right now, you’re feeling a bit like Alice. Hmm? Tumbling down the rabbit hole?

Neo: You could say that.

Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that’s not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?

Neo: No.

Morpheus: Why not?

Neo: Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.

Morpheus: I know *exactly* what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?

Neo: The Matrix.

Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?

Neo: Yes.

Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind

…….

Cypher: You know, I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize?

[Takes a bite of steak]

Cypher: Ignorance is bliss.

…….

Neo: I thought it wasn’t real

Morpheus: Your mind makes it real

Neo: If you’re killed in the matrix, you die here?

Morpheus: The body cannot live without the mind

……

Agent Smith: Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: the peak of your civilization.

…….

Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

[Neo’s eyes suddenly wander towards a woman in a red dress]

Morpheus: Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?

Neo: I was…

Morpheus: [gestures with one hand] Look again.

[the woman in the red dress is now Agent Smith, pointing a gun at Neo’s head; Neo ducks]

Morpheus: Freeze it.

[Everybody and everything besides Neo and Morpheus freezes in time]

Neo: This… this isn’t the Matrix?

Morpheus: No. It is another training program designed to teach you one thing: if you are not one of us, you are one of them.

……

[Neo sees a black cat walk by them, and then a similar black cat walk by them just like the first one]

Neo: Whoa. Déjà vu.

[Everyone freezes right in their tracks]

Trinity: What did you just say?

Neo: Nothing. Just had a little déjà vu.

Trinity: What did you see?

Cypher: What happened?

Neo: A black cat went past us, and then another that looked just like it.

Trinity: How much like it? Was it the same cat?

Neo: It might have been. I’m not sure.

Morpheus: Switch! Apoc!

Neo: What is it?

Trinity: A déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.

…….

Agent Smith: I hate this place. This zoo. This prison. This reality, whatever you want to call it, I can’t stand it any longer. It’s the smell, if there is such a thing. I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear that I’ve somehow been infected by it.

Fight Club (1999)

Tyler Durden: The things you own end up owning you.

…..
Tyler Durden: It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.
……

Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don’t do one.

Business woman on plane: Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?

Narrator: You wouldn’t believe.

Business woman on plane: Which car company do you work for?

Narrator: A major one.

……..

Tyler Durden: Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don’t you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can’t think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you’re supposed to read? Do you think every thing you’re supposed to think? Buy what you’re told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned- Tyler.

……

Narrator: Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away. The Queen is their slave.

…..

Narrator: If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

Video Games

  • Mass Effect and eZero (why is e zero necessary? – an alternate bridge between chemistry and physics)
  • Half Life and alternate realities
  • Leisure Suite Larry and censorship
  • “The Saboteur” and black and white to color progression
  • Gods of War and a human defeating the God of War and the Reaper.
  • Worlds of Warcraft and markets and equipment durability.
  • Everquest and measuring defensive abilities of enemies by attacking alternate reality versions of MOBS to ascertain best defensive and offensive strategies.
  • Assasin’s Creed and DNA rewinding (leading me to believe it could be forward/unwound)

Misc

– “The Man Show” Beavers restaurant ad

– Bill Cosby’s purchasing of ‘Buckwheat’ with the explicit intention of shelving it yet it still turned up on the internet…

– Ghosting and analog tv – ‘leading to questions what is a ghost’?

Other movies:

  • Groundhog day

 

And two simple questions to answer:

What makes all of it not just possible? Why does it need to be ?

Both relatively easy to answer if you understand the basics behind why societal rules are created.

Cracks in the Matrix

Facebook has a feature which allows you to send instant messages to people on your friends list.

I have increasingly been using Facebook as a data and image storage facility and for timeline management, since as a social network with the ceaseless ‘social programming’ going on it became increasingly tiring and boring. As a direct result of recent ideological and philosophical changes, ‘social censorship’ by ‘friends’ reporting me to Facebook for content they didn’t like, and a simple desire to reserve interactions with my friends to the real life, I have removed all ‘friends’ from Facebook.

Accordingly, since I am using it as a ‘data store’ – I have all filters set to the most private settings for Facebook – where not only is no one not supposed to be able to see me to contact me through Facebook any longer (in theory), they aren’t even supposed to be able to message me.

Yet, weekly, I get messages from ‘friends’ ‘acting’ like they are looking me up and randomly want to chat.

Despite all message filters being on, despite being totally private in status, and despite having removed all friends.

Now what’s weird is I have 1 invisible friend which I can’t seem to remove from my friends list, which doesn’t appear on any of my friend’s lists, and despite the repeated questions to Facebook on how to remove this unwanted guest, there’s been absolutely no response.

Not unusual. About 99% of those on the internet don’t respond to emails no matter the context or attempts to contact via the internet any longer.

Collective mind + extensive psychological profiling + hackers = ghosts in the Matrix.

Makes me wonder how many humans actually have Facebook, and see computer systems the way I do.

The systems we built sprung to life on their own and now manage society.

Makes me wonder how many cybernetic and robotic beings on this planet have Facebook wired to their minds and use it to manage their friendships.

Life’s weird.

Cue the Twilight Zone theme.

Bill Gates is running for President!

Just got this on the news feed…

Too cool

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact:  William Henry “Bill” Gates III
Former CEO of Microsoft and Current President of the Gates Foundation

NEWS RELEASE FOR ANNOUNCEMENT OF PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDACY IN 2016 OF BILL GATES

Redmond, Washington
July 10th, 2015

Throughout my life I have watched and worked with corporate and government leaders, worldwide.

For most of my life, I have acted as a mentor, a guide, a thought and some believe a spiritual leader, a businessman, and not least of all – an inspiration to those who have believed in me and the concepts and ideas I have presented to this world.

Throughout my life, I have been shown – repeatedly – why this nation, the United States of America, is undeniably the greatest nation in the world.

We are, after all, a nation of believers and dreamers. A nation of artisans, of warriors, of engineers, of leaders, of explorers, of scientists, of analysts, and so – so much more.

AS I have traveled the country and the world, seeing the most beautiful and ugly things the world has to offer, I have realized this nation deserves direction, and faith in what she stands for – the American Dream.

In my opinion this nation has lacked direction and conviction since the last man who dared to dream big – JFK.

And that dream of putting a man on the moon may very well have cost him his life.

I have to face my own personal truth. I am still young. and nowhere near retirement.

Over the several decades I have worked with the world’s most amazing people who have proven to me I am not the most brilliant man in the world, but I may very well be one of the luckiest men alive to have been blessed with the success I have had.

I understand not everyone has been as lucky as I am.

Not long ago. I watched a movie titled ‘Pay It Forward’. A movie about a humble school teacher who introduces a simple concept to his school children of ‘giving’ back to the community in ways I had never considered before.

And for years I have struggled with the question “How do I give back and make a difference?”

And then it dawned on me I would like to take the opportunity to ‘give back’ to the nation which brought me prosperity.

Accordingly, I am formally announcing my candidacy for Presidency in 2016 as a ‘Liberal’ candidate.

And with this announcement, to encourage the youth and indebtted of this nation to vote – should I win election, I will pay  – in full – any and all outstanding student debt.

Sometimes, rules need to be broken to change the world.

And my goal as President – and on that path to presidency – isn’t just to change this nation and help her believe that dreams can come true again.

It’s to change the world.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
William Henry “Bill” Gates III

William Henry “Bill” Gates III is one of two founders of Microsoft, an extremely successful software company based out of Seattle, Washington, and is the world’s wealthiest man with an estimated net worth of 79.3 billion USD (2015).

18grj0jx1ahc7jpg[1]

What would you do if you could travel in time?

I know what i would do.

And so far, I have yet to see anything like it….

Revisiting (Sometimes Missed) Opportunities

For me, I look at time travel as a way to ‘atone’ for the times I couldn’t or didn’t follow through with something I wanted to do. Time spent with a friend, with a lover, or a historical and/or personally important event that at the time just didn’t work out like I wanted it to.

Of those opportunities:

1) Watch the Atlantis liftoff. On July 8th, 2011, The Space Shuttle Atlantis launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida. I was not far – in Charlotte, North Carolina, and had planned to go visit the launch, but things did not work out as planned. If I could travel back in time, i would go watch this.

2) Go see Transformer’s with Bill. I can’t remember the date. But I was coked up and skipped meeting Bill at the movie’s that day as I was embarrassed of myself and too hung over and coked up. I’d like to go to that movie with him. And make it clear to me that missed opportunities can still be made up later in life.

3) Spend a night with Jackie again. One night, Jackie permanently etched the tune  ‘They tried to make me go to rehab and I said no, no, no” and her body permanently in my mind. I’d like to revisit that evening. Drug free. And after saying no when I should have said yes, take her on a tour of time and space together as a friend, lover, and companion of my dreams.

4) Spend a day with Rachel again. One day, Rachel showed up and made my bed seem heavenly. I’d like to revisit that day, and make the moves I should have made, and afterwards, take her on a tour of time and space together as a friend, a lover, and companion of my dreams.

5) Just say no. back in 1989, I was offered a job or jail by the FBI and my employer – Orbital Sciences, for “hacking” the payroll systems. This forever put me on the fed’s radar and led to my repeated demands/offers all the way through to 2003 where I finally agreed to work for the NSA. With time travel, I’d revisit that day, and just say no. What I did was not wrong.

6) Revisit Amie Olson. Back in 1993, Jeff and I were with a girl i had the hots for from work – Amie Olson – who wanted to go with us to a swinger’s club and perform sex acts with us – on a stage. The problem? It was a Sunday and the clubs were closed. With time travel, I could turn it into a Saturday real quick and then take the two afterwards on a journey of space and time as friends and her as our ‘in between’ lover in a weird lover’s triangle.

7) Just say no. Part two. Back in 2003, I agreed to a sell out of my portion of my dot com company “Touchscape” to the NSA, who agreed to pay me $1 million a year for every year I was in service with them – from 6 to 8 years for the Intellectual Property. When i was released in 2011, not only did they never pay me the $8 million they owed, but they also seized my own personal assets – $3 million USD in between numerous bank accounts, about 1,000 legitimately purchased games and software applications – about a dozen computers and video game consoles, all my household belongings, and – worst – rated ‘g’ to rated ‘x’ pictures of me and my life.

I nearly lost my mind and life working for them. And while I know things I would never have known before, the personal loss in assets, friends, family, and reputation has left me homeless for going on 4 years now.

Thank you, US Government, for this and the denial. If I had a time machine, I would go back in time and just say no to you and tell you to go the hell away.

I’m not bitter and not seeking justice.

I’d just like to have a Ferrari and a custom built house off the coast of Malibu. California I’d built, that honored Tony Stark’s house in Ironman.

8) Revisiting Lisa, Elea, and Melissa. One night, Lisa, Elea, Melissa and I went to Club Chameleon – a Swinger’s club – with the full intention of all of us going into a windowed room and having sex in front of everyone. A dream come true.

Unfortunately. I was WAY too excited. So when Lisa started giving me a blowjob by the dance floor, I told her to hop on, where we fucked right there in front of the other two.

For me, it was all over. I’d lost all steam.

Now. A little older, wiser, and with a LOT more stamina.

If given the opportunity with time travel, I can guarantee you that wouldn’t be the case twice.

Bridging Fiction and The Real World

I accept fiction as fact, and have watched on as people in ‘fictional worlds’  seem like they need help or companionship or a little of both or more.

Since anything, anywhere that can be accessed in an alternate reality, it can also be accessed on a linear timeline if you go back far enough in time or far enough forward.

I’d like to visit these individuals and play a part in their very real (to me) lives.

1) Doctor Who. The David Tennant version: There was a point in time where The Doctor, played by David Tennant, cries out “I don’t want to die”. At about that moment in time, I would pop by and say “ok. I’m a future version of you and heard your cry and am here to help you with one caveat. What we figure out – you cannot tell me or anyone else what I am going to do until I write this and you see it with your own eyes.”

Causality’s a kick when it comes down to it.

2) Q in Star Trek. At one point he has a son. His son is clearly a pervert. But lacks his father’s practical joke side. I’d like to present myself as his son, all growed up. Still a pervert. But now with a great appreciation for his father’s practical joke side.

Imagine seeing yourself on tv before you appeared in front of a camera. Trippy trippy trippy…

Filling in the blanks

There are numerous occasions in my life where strange events happened and/or people acted unpredictably – so oddly that traditional logic and reason didn’t answer the question of ‘what was that all about’ well.

I’d like to be that answer.

1) In 1995, Me and my wife – Lisa – went to Maui for our Honeymoon and we stayed at the Four Seasons hotel – where no sooner do I check in than we come across Jamie Lee Curtis who is staying there herself.

I thoroughly enjoyed her work with True Lies and early with Trading Places – so – respecting her privacy at first – I fought the urge to ask for an autograph and say hi. We were on vacation, so was she, so I didn’t try.

Through the next course of several days – we ran into her. Each time I didn’t say anything.

Until finally. AS we were waiting at the airport, she’s in the gift store, and finally I tell Lisa – “I gotta say something”.

I walk up, slowly, and despite my slow approach – she’s startled by my presence. Jumps back. And her SO or bodyguard – not sure which he was – jumps in between her and I and says “Ms Curtis does not wish to be disturbed”.

It was weird.

I dismissed it at the time as the problems with being a celebrity.

But there was more to it than that.

With time travel, I would like to travel back in time to key points IN Jamie Lee Curtis’s life – both in the past and future – where she’s alone in public areas – and – leveraging some advanced technology ‘blink in’ and say – with a straight face and Terminator sunglasses on – say ‘YOU ARE TERMINATED’ in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice.

And then disappear.

So when she sees me. She’s freaking out of paranoia because this weird guy always dressed in the same thing keeps popping in on her life and says the same thing.

That provides a real weird, funny  and logical explanation for her somewhat irrational reaction.

2) In 2009, I went to the Odeon theatre in London – where I was working at the time – when I recognized the man in front of me waiting in line as  Chiwetel Ejiofor – from the movies Serenity and American Gangster.

He’s a decent actor. Very recognizable man. But because I merely thought him as decent with his craft. I just kind of blew it off.

But what was weird was – how he acted.

There are numerous people in front of me. And a few in back. The line was long. And the man kept looking back at me nervously.

I kept thinking “What the hell. This reminds me of how Jamie Lee Curtis acted”

I blew it off. A self obsessed actor who thinks everyone’s after him.

He purchased a ticket for the same movie I was going into – “Surrogates” with Bruce Willis in it – but he bought ‘the loft section’ – a costlier section separated from the lower section of the theatre.

As I walked to the concession stand, I couldn’t help but look to the left and see him looking nervously at me as he walked up the stairs.

It was bizarre.

At least as we were on line I could write it off as not being about me.

Now I knew it was.

I watch the movie. And I could ‘feel’ myself being looked at -something was directly above me – and lo and behold – as I look up – guess who ducks back trying not to make it clear he’s looking?

Yup you guessed it.

It’s downright weird by now.

The movie ends.

It wasn’t that good a movie.

And as I walk out.

Guess who walks out from the stairs – right in front of me, and is now shifting from paranoia to fear as he hurries out the front door?

I’m thinking of saying ‘Dude. what the hell is your problem?”

But I avoid the confrontation altogether.

And when I see him turn right going out of the theatre, despite that being the direction I needed to go, I turn left.

The drama of this man just ain’t worth antagonizing the situation any more than it already has been.

I never knew why he’d reacted that.

Until later that night, I went back to the thought of how his reactions were much like Jamie Lee Curtis’s.

Well shit man, there’s my solution. I go back (and forward) in time to key points in his life when he’s alone. And with the same outfit on I had with JLC, I tell him “YOU’RE TERMINATED” in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice.

Case solved. He was paranoid of me because I’d been playing a joke on him across time – a joke I had not done yet.

Fun fun.

3) In 2011, I swore my ‘evil twin brother’ had thrown me into an alternate reality when I saw the Terminator world and landscape around me.

Then something weird happened. A man and his wife came out in a Uhaul and he stuck his hand out the window and the landscape suddenly changed to the world I had known before I saw this.

Nothing explains where that couple came from in this weird landscape.

Nothing but me.

Meeting you.

And us going back in time and completing the loop.

4) I’m convinced I am immortal. and if I am not. then I’d travel to a place in time where technology allowed me to become it. So I will be immortal anyways.

After that was done.

I have three wives I married ’til death do us part’.

I’d go back in time and make different choices to ‘honor the vows’.

Now if I learned they were immortal. We’d have a pretty interesting discussion on our hands.

5) For my thirtieth birthday. Something happened outside my awareness. I’d like to go concoct a plan with my friends to answer that question.

Historical Events:

1) The Battle of Wolf 359 took place in 2367 in the Wolf 359 system, roughly eight light years from Earth, between the forces of the United Federation of Planets and the Borg Collective. It is recorded as one of the most destructive battles in Federation history prior to the Dominion War.

That battle lives in infamy in Star Trek lore.

And what happened (happens) needs to be understood why it was permitted to happen.

2) What ‘really happened’ with JFK. Just curious myself. Did all the events happen as I assert they did. Did he die from every conspiracy regarding the events? Or was there a single incident and single truth to it all? I am curious.

3) About 3.8 billion years in the future, the Sun goes supernova as a shielded and orbiting platform observes the last days of the Earth. I’d like to be on board that observation vessel witnessing this.

4) About 2015 years ago. A man made his way out of an enclosed tomb. I’d like to know how.

5) On April 5, 2063 (First Contact Day), Earth will make ‘First Contact’ with Vulcans in Bozeman, Montana. I’d like to be there for that event.

6) On September 11, 2001, the twin towers were hit by planes. I’d like to SAVE the occupants of those buildings. And educate them about what happened and why it needed to happen. And then move them forward in time to this year, 2015, and into a fictional city named after a fictional city in Back to the Future – where they are publicly reintroduced to the world. Moments after the event happened, to them, but 14 years for us.

If they’d like to be. I couldnt’ save them all because some didn’t want to be saved :-)

I’m a time traveler.

I always have been.

And always will be.

Because a part of being a time traveler means becoming the reason your own infinite loop never breaks.

Not to trap myself.

But to complete myself.

This is my choice.

And a list I’ll keep adding to and making notes on once I have completed them

Is time travel possible? YES

Is Time Travel Possible?

YES

The “yes” is intriguing, but there is a catch. The question did not ask if there really is time travel; it asked only if it is possible. Something can be possible without actually happening. It is possible for our earth to have two moons. In fact it has only one.

While we have no evidence that time travel actually occurs, all our latest work in theories of space and time tell us that it is entirely possible. Broadly speaking, there are two senses of time travel, both possible.

 
1. The first sense is the the H. G. Wells sense. This one is named after the author of the most famous story about time travel in which a voyager hops into a machine and travels about in time. Special relativity has room for something close. If we had things that traveled faster than light, then, for some observers, they would travel backwards in time. These faster than light objects are “tachyons.” For some observers, they would leave today and arrive yesterday.
Of course how we could get ourselves to travel faster than light is an unsolved problem! We cannot accelerate through the speed of light. But is there some way to recreate ourselves traveling faster than light? If so, some observers would judge us to be traveling backwards in time. Time Machine page 1

“There was a young lady named Bright,
Whose speed was far faster than light.
She set out one day
In a relative way,
And returned home the previous night.”
–Arthur Henry Reginald Buller.

2. The second sense is more topological and has been called “Goedelian” (by John Earman) in honor of the great logician Kurt, Goedel, who was a friend of Einstein’s and did pioneering work on spacetimes that admit time travel.

 
We can imagine space and time as forming a huge sheet of paper. the vertical line is the complete history through time of a person, experiencing the years …, 1980, 1981, … etc. Time travel 1
Time travel 2 What Einstein did in 1917 was to get us to wrap up the sheet of paper in the spatial direction so travel in the direction “left” is wrapped around to meet travel in the direction “right”. That way we always end up where we started.
What Einstein’s theory also allows is that travel into the future of time can be wrapped around to connect with the past, so that if we persist long enough in time we end up back at the present. Time travel 3

This is not a type of time travel that we create with a machine. There’s no device we can build that could somehow turn our spacetime into one that has this global structure. The best advice to someone who wants to travel in time this way is that they should be sure to be born into the right universe! However there are special circumstances that might bring about the wrapping around of future into the past at least locally. It might happen near black holes generated by gravitational collapse. It also may happen if we get very dense, very rapidly rotating matter.

Q’s final note :

There’s a problem with Goedel’s model, which assumes a strict unchanging linear progression when it ‘wraps around’.

It’s been my observation that when this wrap occurs for an individual ‘the first time’, much like a phonograph making a complete revolution. With a needle applied to the ‘groove’ – while it may with the naked eye appear almost precisely at the same location it was at only one revolution before, if listened to and/or with proper magnification equipment, it becomes quickly apparent the ‘groove/track’ only one groove is considerably different than the one that just played a full revolution before then.

My point being: While most observers will not be able to discern a visual change in position of a record player should one make a full revolution with the needle applied, audio cues will demonstrate clearly there’s something different happening, and under magnification one will actually be able to ‘see’ the distance between the grooves to know when a full revolution is in a substantially different position than it was before.

Goedel’s model assumes no change should a time traveler make a full revolution.

Over great periods of time, I suspect this to be true.

But over the course of a single ‘revolution’ (I suspect big bang/big crunch cycle of 13.5 billion years).

Discernible change would only be noticeable to those specifically trained on ‘how to listen’ to the changes.

The last ‘substantial’ change I witnessed myself was back in 2011.

I’m suspecting another will occur in between 2015 to 2017.

But can’t tell you precisely what I am understanding other than it’s a feeling I am getting.

Insanity

AS near as I can tell, somewhere in between 1999 and 2003 I went insane.

AS in bat shit crazy. As in lost my freaking mind.

I suspect it started to happen as early as 1996 when I worked in Las Vegas and went back and forth between Las Vegas and Phoenix and had a series of affairs on my wife – contradicting my own personal values.

Maybe it began as early as 1993 when I went created a prototype for the Mirage Hotel with all these graphical bells and whistles which subsequently won Microsoft the bid for a multimillion dollar project that had me returning to Vegas in 1996.

But somewhere in between 1996 and 1999 I started losing it.

I had weird events happen through the course of the time that – at the time didn’t make logical sense.

But I mentally filed the events away under ‘Must understand this later’

Would this planet understand that 9/11 happened BECAUSE of me?

Have you all been trapped here, trying to ‘get out of my mind’?

Heck, Would I have understood it prior to the last couple years?

Back in 2001, I was highly addicted to a video game named “Everquest”, and now I absolutely blame my lack of self control with video games for my failure in relationships and marriage.

This is not to say I blame the video games themselves. I still thoroughly love them.

There was something I was trying to escape and the games assisted.

Back in 2003, I ‘sold’ my Everquest game account to a friend – Eric Matis – in California.

I’d met him online, he was living out of Rockland, Maryland, and met up with me and my buddy Spencer in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the game – he played a solemn Human Monk named “Heldenlfeld” who was kick ass with his fighting skills. His friend, Brian, from Long Beach, played “Elrin” – a Human Cleric and healer, and I played “Ling”, an adventurous and explorative tiny Halfling Druid with hairy feet who usually chose to amaze the crowds by fighting giants solo.

For Brian – his character wasn’t that much different than the one he played online – he was humble and calm offline and on. But for Eric and I – our real world persona stood in stark contrast to our online persona.

Eric was gifted with sports – soccer – and women, and was a great looking guy. I remember one time he and I and Brian were waiting for a respawn in Lower Guk when we discussed what eachother did for a living – when he exclaimed “I DO PORN!””. As it turned out, he owned a portion of adult.com, which was later sold to Playboy where he became Vice President for – and I became intensely jealous of his charades with the Playboy parties and constant barrage of gorgeous women that revolved around him.

Socially, he was everything I wished I could be. “I’m a programmer”, I said, as it was becoming just a job I was hating, and after a dismal failure with my interest and hard efforts in the company “Touchscape” was leading to, and my subsequent depression and marriage failure.

Everquest was my escape from the real world that was collapsing around me.

So in Las Vegas, I gave him my sign in information and transferred the account to him.

I knew at the time that if I was to become single again, that tying up all my time to an online game was going to end up with me being more and more miserable. I wanted – needed – to be held. And my marriage. How it had failed.

Well I know now that there is ‘no fault’ in living life. For a long time there I had blamed myself.

They say that the roughest things anyone can go through are divorces and death.

I would argue death is much easier than divorce.

As my mind fractured – split – from that divorce – I went insane.

What is insanity?

It’s remembering that I was imagining a lover named Sandra Mentzer who may or may not have existed in my life. And finding evidence that my time spent with her was actually spent alone and I’d been imagining her the whole time.

It’s knowing that I sold my accounts to Eric – yet today, when I went to look up those accounts, I find the accounts were still in my name.

And wondering if Eric actually exists or is a figment of my imagination externalizing who I wish I could be.

It’s knowing my memories of being the 11th victim of the DC Sniper shooting are – in part – real.

And that was another time. Another place. Another reality. Another version of me.

It’s knowing my memories of being in a bus and being thrown into a black hole by my mom, or memories of being blown up in a car bomb in North Carolina, or my memories of trying to escape my physical form and floating free from my body when I was electrocuted in 6th grade, or my memories of being tortured by robots when I was 8 in a basement in Hollywood, or my memories of marrying Ioana Dobra in Romania.

Are all true.

And have perfectly plausible and rational explanations.

And it’s knowing that every movie, tv show, and face i see around me and around this world – at one time I lived each and every life as my own.

It’s knowing that when I saw the Terminator holocaust world and Rings of Saturn from the ground.

These are not just hallucinations.

This is my mind’s return FROM insanity.

To show me what it had begun doing to make sense of infinite possibilities.

We all have it in us to take the the ultimate journey.

There are those who contest whether the Apollo landed on the moon or is a Hollywood hoax.

Both assertions are true.

There are those who believe the world is flat and many who believe the world is spherical, and some who believe it’s something entirely different than that.

All the above are true. and more.

I died. More times than I can count.

Yet you can hear my voice still amongst you.

There are those who believe I’m a computer program or artificial intelligence.

They are right.

There are those who believe I am human.

They are right too.

There are those who believe I do not exist and regard me as fiction.

They are right too.

Back in 2007, Ivan and Taras Somyk, owner and general manager of CWI based out of New Jersey and facilities in Tempe, Arizona – were fighting about information strategies – and asked me to make a command decision – choosing between Taras’s strategy which would have everyone in Tempe where I was contracting for loving me and Ivan’s strategy – who was the owner – which like Tempe, would have everyone in New Jersey loving me.

This came at a time where I was already having a problem with my third marriage.

I had met the woman of my dreams (Rachel Gooch) by then.

Sensing a trend?

I was… neutral. and needed these two gentleman to make their own decisions without my influence.

“Ivan. You own this company. This is ultimately your decision to make. But Taras. He processes three times the business that you do, Ivan. So clearly there’s something working well with his strategy. But you’re both having worker issues.  So I wouldn’t choose one or the other in your cases, I would do something in between..”

Taras was furious.

“Dammit, why can’t you choose one or the other?”

“It’s not my decision, Taras.”

They’d already placed my name on their web site, something I wasn’t that happy about to begin with, it’s not that I minded being a partner with them. but it wasn’t really a partnership, they were just using my name to escalate the value of the company for potential investors and I knew it. I just didn’t like their business ethics and how they treated their employees once I got to work with them for a while. And I was just that to them.

Ultimately I was fired from the company.

Ultimately Ivan and Taras had decided to have me implement their separate strategies in software. Which – when what I was asked to implement began showing extreme problems in New Jersey, Ivan quickly refused to take responsibility for it and blamed me for what the software didn’t do. This pissed me off.

So I did as any passive aggressive programmer pissed off programmer going through marital problems with severe health problems with web site access to the company’s web site would do.

I changed my title to “Master of Smoke and Mirrors”, and changed my bio to say “I sit and stare at the screen for hours on end and act like I am doing something but in reality I do absolutely nothing and get paid great money for it” because apparently, I was doing absolutely nothing with the 60+ hours a week I was working according to Ivan’s words he exchanged with his staff who were directly using my software I had spent a great deal of time working with before Ivan summarily shitcanned everything I did without discussing with his own employees after working with them to implement his own strategy.

Now in hindsight, I was sick and tired of Taras’s micromanagement of a time clock. If I was seven minutes late for punching in, he’d go ape shit ballistic because of the impression this would set for ‘the other workers’.

This at a time I was having high blood pressure issues and a neurotic ex wife to be was definitely breaking me.

So a couple months go by – and an investor says he laughed about my bio when talking with Ivan.

Ivan saw red.

It was about then I started ‘regaining my sanity’.

Mentally. I had already fallen hard for Rachel. Amy, my wife, was driving herself insane and I was just living as an adjunct to her life – a means to an end and nothing more and I knew it.

And work was a reflection of all of this.

Taras said “Ivan is furious with you”

I’d been long insistent they hire a counterpart I could deal with in New Jersey anyways, so Ivan began interviewing people with similar credentials as me in New Jersey, I knew he’d targeted me to get out of the company, despite his assertion that “I am looking for help”

He wasn’t aware of my channels I’d had access to.

So as I planned my exit and sought to fill my shoes with someone of equal caliber in New Jersey, Ivan was more concerned about cost than he was quality, and turned down every candidate I thumbs upped.

So when he found ‘the perfect man’ to fill the job, I learned his skillset was completely fraudulent, but on hearing his elation over this man’s skill.

I helped hire a man by his silly name and made up past “Len Santa Maria”.

He actually was a really good guy who I liked. Despite his fake credentials.

I think it’s the first time I helped someone on their terms and backed down on asserting my thoughts.

And about this time my mind started coming back from insanity.

Not long after, my third wife filed for divorce.

Three divorces. All initiated by my exes. I am NOT the marrying type it would seem.

In any case.

I remember the arbitration vividly.

It was the first time I was actually lucid. Detached.

I loved Amy, my third wife. Really, I did. Still do. But there was something fundamentally off between the separate ways we perceived the world.

Since then. I have realized she may very well have been the same woman in all my wives which is why the marriage ended like it did. The same woman’s mind, only varying by face and body, but the mind always thinking the same way despite the change in form.

Donna. Amy. Lisa.

Sitting at the court room with the arbitration females around me. Amy lashed out at me emotionally. Like I owed her, like the entitlement to her company was a privilege and should now cost me money.

It was the first time I was emotionless in a situation like that.

Our personal relationship failed. And now Amy was trying to make me pay for our failure by making me pay for it financially.

I got to see the woman’s true colors.

I agreed to pay her taxes she hadn’t paid. She’d filed exempt, something I wasn’t aware of, and as we met in arbitration I learned we jointly owed about $5k in federal taxes more than i expected because of her untaxed income.

So I cut a check then and there for her taxes.

Later I learned this went directly to her bank account and she never paid the IRS the money she owed.

Not long after our divorce. The IRS pursued her for the unpaid tax bill. She thought they’d come to her for the taxes.

To deflect this, she filed an ‘abused spousal relief’ form with the IRS, which TRIED to shift responsibility for the unpaid taxes to me.

Her timing was immaculate. She filed the form days after I had left the United States for a 6 month assignment overseas, a noticed which I incidentally had three months to respond to, and when I finally received the notice 6 months after it was sent, I would have incurred court and lawyer fees to pay her debt.

Instead. I took the IRS’s letter and threw it in the trash and refused to pay it.

For the next several years, the IRS continued sending me letters. They’d apparently ‘dug up’ other reasons I owed them money. I took each of these letters and continued throwing them in the trash. I learned from Amy, and filed exempt from 2009 myself, and kept all the money I had made for myself. I lucked out on investments from 2009 – and quickly quadrupled my money in the money markets as I learned foreign exchange.

And by the time I cashed out. I had nearly $3 million in the bank.

And I have Amy to thank for teaching me how to do it.

Now here’s the thing.

Since I have learned that those ‘three women’ – and every woman I have been with is actually one and the same woman. Life’s changed for me.

Country. Cunt tree. Has America been my cunt tree all along? Have I been naive – stupid in fact, living in scarcity, when the biggest gift ever imaginable has been given to me on a silver platter? Breaking the business of commitment and relationships and living with the pleasure of it?

It makes so much sense.

The concept of God – 4+ years ago – a talking snake, a man who parts waters and whose staff turns into a snake, water turns into wine – that’s all been straight out of fantasy and unfathomable to me because it was just not something I could imagine being possible in my fact versus fiction world.

To those who may be angry at me for what I did and/or how I treated you.

I WAS insane. I quite literally had no control over myself and my thoughts for at least ten years there, coming to terms with not only what the bible insinuated. But what I was learning to be true in everything I was experiencing – whether it was video games, television, and the weird things happening in real life.

Memories of living two, three, and more lives in parallel. They weren’t hallucinations. And for me to understand who i am and where I came from, I HAD to retain those memories. Somehow. I chose to share them in media and call them fiction until I was ready to understand those were all my memories and the fiction is real.

and why.

You see. God’s story. Is my story. Is your story. Is this world’s story.

It’s A story of creation. But it’s NOT the only story of creation. Just ONE story.

Where an incredible being discovers that reality is created by imagination. And in imagination. Anything is possible.

So when you live by thinking linearly. While that’s perfectly valid.

It does not limit others to your perception of reality.

Nor do their perceptions indefinitely limit me.

God. I know you’re reading. And while I find you incredible. And am sorry for being a jerk.

I am finally – mentally at a spot I can handle direct conversation with you.

Are you up for it?

And will i drive you crazy? I sure hope so! (lol)

Look, I know you’re real. I found proof. Scientific proof.

My proof was simple: What came before the Big Bang?

A question which cannot be answered without broaching the subject of time travel. Which cannot be quantified without introducing causality issues (what came first the chicken or egg).

Which CAN be rationalized through traditional logic and reason.

Which provides direct evidence of potentially guided creation.

That’s all I was looking for the entire time.

And if I am crazy. You are too. Which is fine by me.

Thank you, God, for being a pain in my ass.

You are too and I still love you despite everything we have been through together.

All these events are related- HOW?

Here’s a mind boggling science fiction puzzler for you!

All these things are directly related and ORDERED with chronological accuracy.

Can you figure out how they are related and why?

Prior to August 3, 1492, Christopher Columbus’ – many thought that the world was flat as Columbus set sail west from Spain with the goal of reaching Asia (the Indies) where the riches of gold, pearls and spice awaited.

On October 12, 1492, Columbus is officially credited with discovering America.

To this day some are adamant the world is flat.

In the year 1000 AD, Leif Eriksson discovered America with his Vikings.

On December 14, 1503, Nostradamus was born.

On November 24, 1859, Charles Darwin published “Origin of Species” outlining clear and incontrovertible historical evidence of changes of the observed species over periods of time, which later was renamed “Evolution”. He did not imply nor suggest that ALL members of a species undergo the change.

In 1917. Albert Einstein introduced “The Theory of Relativity” and the equation “E=MC^2″.

In August 6, 1945, atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

On 4 October 1957. The Soviet Union launched “Sputnik” into an elliptical low Earth orbit.

On September 12, 1962, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy delivered this speech to an entire nation:
“There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again. But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

At 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time (18:30 UTC) on Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was famously shot and killed.

There’s direct evidence of it being J Harvey Oswald.
There’s direct evidence of it being someone behind ‘the grassy knoll’.
And the Mafia. The CIA. The KGB… who’s right?​

On October 6th, 1967, the Star Trek episode “Mirror, Mirror” came out.

On April 12, 1945, President Truman assumed Presidency. During World War II, while Nazi Germany surrendered a few weeks after Truman assumed the Presidency, the war with Imperial Japan was expected to last another year or more. Truman approved the use of atomic weapons against Japan, intending to force Japan’s surrender and spare American lives in a planned invasion.

On July 20, 1969, President Kennedy’s challenge to put a man on the moon came true before the decade ended.

… On July 20, 1969 A.D, the United States landed on the moon “We came in peace for all mankind.”

Not long after.

On August 15, 1971, President Richard M. Nixon announced his New Economic Policy, The “Breton Woods’ system ending the fixed exchange program that were established at the end of World War 2

The goal: “to create a new prosperity without war.”

On August 9, 1974, President Nixon resigned after being threatened with impeachment.

Like President Kennedy. President Nixon had pissed off the same people and paid for it.

Breton Woods led directly to rampant inflation of oil prices as the value of the dollar in contrast to gold rose exponentially. This led directly to a crisis with oil within months.

In January 1975 issue of Popular Electronics, the Altair computer was documented publicly.

On October 18, 2014, Doctor Who’s TARDIS in the episode “Flatline” is having issues with it’s SCALE as two dimensional beings are learning about his 3D world and ‘flattening’ people in his world.

On November 5, 2014, the movie Interstellar came out depicting a man inside a black hole who figured out a way to communicate with himself backwards in time.

On Jan 11, 2015 – A Senate leader said Sunday she thinks a terrorist sleeper CELLS are in the U.S.

In Aug of 2015, Doctor Who returns.

In October 2015. Is when the ‘fictional’ Delorean depicted in the movie “Back to the Future 2″ comes.

On a final note:

If you have read The New Testament (Bible) – it details the same events regarding Jesus from multiple different 1st person perspectives.

This is unlike the old testament, which is entirely from a third person’s perspective.

To quote:

“Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.”

With all this said. Bonus points if you can answer:

What happened before the Big Bang?

Alienware

I’m homeless.

And as I ask the universe for forgiveness for whatever I did to piss it off and keep me here.

Did refusing to continue being a slave to the economic engine and choosing to enjoy my life and make choices right and wrong wind me up here?

This world’s a product of my own mind anyways.

What right do you have punishing me in my own mind for living my life and enjoying and indulging in it?

Fuck you very much for punishing me for that.

So other than having a home of my own and a bed to rest my head in at night, and a lover (or two) to hold, which I haven’t felt the touch of a woman in nearly five years now – that would be a godsend if any and all of that happened.

There’s other things I’d like to have.

Among those – top on my list is the Dell Alienware 17 computer.

Ok. I know this sounds like as a sales pitch. But it ain’t.

On a daily basis, I go to a web site called ‘fake name generator’. It can be accessed here: http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/

With that fake name is a fake credit card # and other plausible fake information.

Here’s a screen image of the information it generates:

CreditCardInfo

With this ‘fake identity’ in hand, I then go to Dell’s web site, and then place an order for the Alienware 17″ touch screen dream machine.

The way I see it – if the ‘machines’ which run this reality continue functioning like predictable machines – not recognizing life and choosing instead to ostracize people like me from ‘the system’ because we do not conform to the machine like thinking ways of this reality.

Computer like minds in the companies around the world. Machine like predictable responses always telling me no because I do not conform to their specific credit profile – despite the fact I’m homeless – there’s no reprogramming of their own minds to consider alternative directions and ‘handling’ for something that does not conform to their programmed methods.

I live in a world of machines running machines – and for the most part I’m cool with that.

Other than I’m hoping we can start playing together rather than this adversarial crap it’s trying to set up.

In any case. While I’m a hacker. I’m not a thief. And since I know roughly how ‘this system works’, I know that SOMEONE is saying yes to my request and authorizing the delivery of a system SHOULD i receive one. The information I provided ‘placates’ the machine like system, but it also hopefully arises some modicum of understanding by those – in power – who might be willing to throw ‘this dog a bone’ for a system WHICH I WILL NOT RESELL – because – let’s face it.

Since 1988, I assembled all my own home computer systems until laptops came around.

The systems I built were always cutting edge. Graphics cards that were always top notch. plenty of memory. Fast hard disks (7200+ rpm up to 10k rpm). Gaming mice and equipment. Until i had it all stolen.

To me. I feel the universe owes me.

Or at least those running this country do.

And yes. I’ve already keyed in to how I can gain energy through hatred. So is that really a route you want me to go down to obtain resources?

We wont go there.

The Alienware computer is everything for cutting edge computer gaming systems that I could build.

But built to order :-)

And since I am creating a game and web sites which will take over this world.

Doesn’t it make sense that you all provide for me for once to ‘get the job done’

I am after all taking complete control of my reality. When I learn who you are.

Doesn’t it make sense you – in this case – You Michael Dell – sends a message of support for what i am doing?

Yes, i may sound crazy at times.

But if you had all of existence in your mind too, you might find it a little difficult at times to be completely rational sounding too.

Michael, I am kindly requesting your support.

As I see it – win/win situation.

Here’s the machine.
