  3. THE YELLOW SIGN Says:

    As described in The Repairer of Reputations, the manuscript, with pages well-worn only from the constant handling and reading by Hildred Castaigne, concerns itself with the imperial dynasty that spreads from Carcosa to America.

    The manuscript begins with the words “When from Carcosa, the Hyades, Hastur and Aldebaran” – indicating that each is an ancestral home of the dynasty, and continuing onto “Louis Castaigne, born December 19, 1887… Hildred Castaigne, only son of Hildred Castaigne Snr and Edythe Landes Castaigne, first in succession…” It is perhaps relevant that it never states explicitly that this is the end of the manuscript.

  4. n his tribe, Zoroaster held the hereditary office of witch-doctor or medicine-man. He faithfully fulfilled the duties that were attached to this position among the savage tribes of inner-Asia before they were subdued and civilized by the Persian Empire. Their religion can be best described as a form of shamanism; its chief points are two, both of equal importance: the ordeal and the Maga. The tribal mythology, theology, and all rites derive from ordeal and Maga; they are their functions. The ordeal, the divine judgment here carried out by pouring molten metal on the litigants, it) self-explanatory ; it was administered by a college of Fellow of the Ordeal, presided over by Zoroaster as medicine-man and shamanism chief.

    It is less easy to explain the purport of the Maga. Secondarily, the Maga is an enclosure within which the sacred rites are performed; primarily it is a term for ‘magic singing’, and as a collective, ‘a group of people engaging in magic songs’. Within the Maga the members of the tribe who were admitted to the sacred community met from time to time to perform certain acts that aimed at reaching a state of ecstasy. The chief means employed to this end were singing and probably dancing, hence the curious name. Quicker results were reached by the application of steam and hemp (the question whether Zoroaster used hemp for such purposes will be discussed later),

    As soon as the participants in these ceremonies had fallen into a trance, they began to shout incomprehensible words and syllables; but presently they fell into a complete coma. In this state, they imagined themselves to reach a mystical union with God, or rather with Vohu Manah. Their souls, released by trance from the body, rose up to the higher regional to join with other souls who had been freed either in the same way or by death; there is no real difference: between these two groups: as we might say ‘sleep is the brother of death’ the shamanists would have said ‘trance is the brother of death’. Vohu Manah is the collective of the Free-souls, or the cosmic, divine Free-soul.

    To reach a trance or a coma was regarded as the greatest boon; to be excluded from the fellowship of the Maga a terrible misfortune. It is clear that in a given tribe the leading shaman must have exercised great influence; for beside presiding over the ceremonies connected with the ordeal he was the chief of the Maga and as such determined who was to be admitted to the supreme happiness the Maga alone could bestow.

    We also begin to understand now why the Gatha, the poems by Zoroaster, which his community so faithfully transmitted through the centuries, have presented so great difficulties to the scholars who have hitherto tried to fathom their meaning. If the Gathas are crazy, mutterings shouted by a senseless man in, a hemp-induced stupor, it is pointless to seek much meaning in them. It was also rather pointless that those who-mistakenly — believed – themselves to be following in the footsteps of Zoroaster should have taken so much trouble to preserve what turns out to be gibberish. As to the scholars who in modern times studied the Gathas without finding the true key to them, the less we say about their inept attempts the better.

    • This is the central point in the religion into which Zoroaster was born. He would no doubt have transmitted it unchanged to succeeding generations, had not exterior events compelled him to search his heart and reformulate his creed. The event that produced a revolution in his mind was missionary activity by primitive polytheists, by that group which put the God Mithra into the foreground. The propagandists of Mithraism, with their animal sacrifices and nocturnal haoma orgies, exercised an unholy fascination upon the simple, unsophisticated members of Zoroaster’s community. The number of those who attended the Maga to spend their days in a peaceful coma grew less and less; the situation worsened from day to day. Zoroaster held stoutly ‘to his ancient religion at the beginning, but soon his mind was affected by doubts. This is the ‘great crisis’ in his life.

      In his perplexity, he turned to his God: Ahura Mazdah heard his prayer: he received a revelation. In a vision, he saw that his earlier theology had been wrong Ahura Mazdah, in truth, was not I the God who keeps aloof from the world, the God that had created both the Good and the Evil Spirits. No, Ahura Mazdah was an I active God, who guided the good, who was ever ready to stretch out a helping hand to those who fought for Truth, He had not I created the Evil Spirit: the Evil Spirit was independent, hostile to him and all his creatures, equal or almost equal in power. In short, while he had been a Zervanist before, Zoroaster now became a strict Dualist, the author of that dualism that has characterized Zoroastrianism through the ages.

      Armed with his new theology Zoroaster turned to the attack. However, while he had been able to do very little against the lusty Mithraists before, his sudden change of front did not improve matters. One can easily imagine that the few faithful friends that were ready to stand by him now despaired and lured away. At any rate, he had to leave his tribe, reviled by his enemies, abandoned by his friends. The great crisis in Zoroaster’s life — if I may use words I used once before — can be summed up in four words: alcohol prevailed over hemp.

      • Zoroastrianism and the Cult of Angels share many features, among which are the belief in seven good angels and seven “bad” ones in charge of the world, and a hereditary priestly class. These common features are natural results of the long and eventful contact between the two religions. Other common features may be the result of the religious imprint of the Aryan settlers of Kurdistan, whose original religion must have been the same as that which the Prophet Zoroaster later reformed and reconstituted into the religion of Zoroastrianism. In its present form, however, the Cult shows the greatest mutuality with Islam, which has been its neighbor for the past 14 centuries. Nearly a thousand years after the first attempt on Zoroastrianism, followers of the Cult made another, less successful, bid to take over, or eliminate, Zoroastrianism. This was in the form of the Mazdakite movement.

        The cult or movement of Mazdak rose in the Sth century AD in response to the rigid social and economic class system instituted by the Zoroastrian state religion of Sasanian Persia. The movement spread out from the Zagros region led by a native son, Mazdak, who eventually even succeeded in converting the Sasanian king Kavât or Qubâd (r. AD 488-53 1).

        The Mazdakites’ fundamental belief in the social equality of people, still largely present in the Cult of Angels, gave this religion special attraction to the poor and the objects of discrimination. Mazdak (whose name may mean “lesser Mazdâ,” with Mazdâ being the shortened form for the name of the Zoroastrian supreme god Ahurâ Mazdâ), preached communal ownership of many worldly possessions, and was accused of having included women in this same category-an accusation of sexual promiscuity still levied on the Cult of Angels.

        The practice of communal ownership has prompted many modern writers to flamboyantly brand the cult of Mazdak as the first world communist system (see Classical History). In this religion was also embedded a militancy that continued to manifest itself in several socioreligious movements in the Islamic era, and indirectly through the militant Shi’ism of modern times.

        Despite, or perhaps because of, their earlier successes, the Mazdakites were soon subjected to widespread massacres towards the end of Kavât’s rule ca. AD 528 (as he had by then reverted to Zoroastrianism). Under the rule of Kavât’s son and successor, Chosroes I Anoshervân, pogroms were extended to all corners of the country, prompting the king soon to declare them all destroyed. Far from being destroyed, the movement resurfaced, albeit fragmented, after the destruction of the staunchly Zoroastrian Sasanian Persian Empire. Mazdak remains one of the two patron saints of the populous Khushnow Kurdish tribe in central Kurdistan (Sykes 1908, 457).

        Muslim rulers in their turn had to face and put down successiva waves of economically driven messianic religious movements originating in this same area of Jibâl (Arabic for “[Zagrosl mountains,” i.e., old Media). The most important movement, that of the Khurramiyya, was led by religious and military leader Bâbak. The Khurramiyya believed in transmigration of souls, especially those of their leaders and religious figures. Bâbak and his followers, like Mazdak and the Mazdakites earlier, were known for their practice of communal ownership of all properties and means of economic production, and lack of social distinctions.

      • Fulltiltredhead© ⅊ ⎋ ☭ ☫ ☬ Says:

        The hallmark of the Mazdakites and the Khurramis was their use of the color red for their banners and clothing. They were thus called the Surkhalamân, “the people of red banners,” or Surkhjâmagân, “the people of red cloths.” This signature reappeared in the 14th and 15th centuries in another movement from among the followers of the Cult, when the Alevis came to be called the Qizilbâsh, or “the red heads,” from their red headgear (see Alevism and Medieval History).

      • The world-tree of the ancient religion of Persia is called the Haoma. The ancient Chaldeans and Assyrians believed that in the forest of Eridhu a great tree grew. Its seat was the centre of the earth and its roots of white crystal stretched towards the deep, whilst its foliage, which encompassed the heavens, was the residence of the primeval mother Zikum, and the tree in which Tammuz, the Chaldean Adonis, hid himself. There are said to be two Haoma’s,[1] the earthly or Yellow Haoma, which is the king of healing plants, and the White Haoma, the Gaokerena of the Zendavesta[2]. This Haoma, the sacred plant of the Zoroastrians, provides the primal drink of immortality. It is the first of all trees, planted in heaven by Ormuzd, in the fountain of life, near another tree called the “inviolable,” which bears the seeds of every kind of vegetable life. Both these trees are situated in a lake called Vouru Kasha, and are guarded by ten fish, who keep a ceaseless watch upon a lizard, (some say a dragon), sent by the evil Ahriman, to destroy the sacred Tree.

      • ALDEBARAN (Alpha Tauri). Aldebaran is by far the brightest, and therefore the Alpha, star of the constellation Taurus. The ancient name, from Arabic, means “the Follower,” as the star seems to follow the Pleiades, or Seven Sisters star cluster, across the sky. http://stars.astro.illinois.edu/sow/aldebaran.html

    • Mad in France Says:

      In artworks, the Scythians are portrayed exhibiting European traits.[130] In Histories, the 5th-century Greek historian Herodotus describes the Budini of Scythia as red-haired and grey-eyed.[130] In the 5th century BC, Greek physician Hippocrates argued that the Scythians have purron (ruddy) skin.[130][131] In the 3rd century BC, the Greek poet Callimachus described the Arismapes (Arimaspi) of Scythia as fair-haired.[130][132] The 2nd century BC Han Chinese envoy Zhang Qian described the Sai (Scythians) as having yellow (probably meaning hazel or green), and blue eyes.[130] In Natural History, the 1st century AD Roman author Pliny the Elder characterizes the Seres, sometimes identified as Iranians (Scythians) or Tocharians, as red-haired and blue-eyed.[130][133] In the late 2nd century AD, the Christian theologian Clement of Alexandria says that the Scythians are fair-haired.[130][134] The 2nd century Greek philosopher Polemon includes the Scythians among the northern peoples characterized by red hair and blue-grey eyes.[130] In the late 2nd or early 3rd century AD, the Greek physician Galen declares that Sarmatians, Scythians and other northern peoples have reddish hair.[130][135] The fourth-century Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus wrote that the Alans, a people closely related to the Scythians, were tall, blond and light-eyed.[136] The 4th century bishop of Nyssa Gregory of Nyssa wrote that the Scythians were fair skinned and blond haired.[137] The 5th-century physician Adamantius, who often follow Polemon, describes the Scythians are fair-haired.[130][138] It is possible that the later physical descriptions by Adamantius and Gregory of Scythians refer to East Germanic tribes, as the latter were frequently referred to as “Scythians” in Roman sources at that time. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scythians#Physical_appearance

      • The 1st actor ever to win an Oscar was also among the first to build a home in Bel- Air, which later became the site of an orgy house for the designer of the Barbie doll.

        Warner Baxter was the 1st actor to win the Oscar for Best Actor for his role as the Cisco Kid in the film In Old Arizona (1928).

        He built the 16,000 square-foot home at 688 Nimes Rd in 1932, and died in 1951. The actor-inventor also invented a traffic light switch for emergency vehicle drivers to change traffic light signals.

        In 1962, Barbie doll (b. 1959) and Hot Wheels designer Jack Ryan (who committed suicide today in 1991) who also became Zsa Zsa Gabor’s 6th husband, bought the site and lived here 1963-1977.

        He installed 144 phones, afraid to miss out on business activities. Trees had phones that rang with the sounds of birds chirping.

        He furnished his real-life Barbie house regally.

        The regular cocaine user and former military missile designer at Raytheon, hosted at least 182 parties a year, and featured Bacchanalian orgies in the 1970s with jugglers, fortune tellers, acrobats and dancers. Prostitutes were regulars at this house that Barbie built.

        The home had a dungeon and black torture chamber with black fox fur.

        His wife and kids were in the “Personal Quarters” never allowed to see the orgies. His swinging ways drove his wife to divorce him. Ryan was married 5x.

        Mattel owner Ruth Handler was outraged by his behavior and cut his royalties dramatically from around 1970, resulting in Mattel being sued for millions by Ryan. He originally had a 1.5% share of sales revenue.

        Ruth Handler also tried to claim sole credit for designing Barbie. They also fought over who named Barbie. Ryan’s wife was named Barbara. Ruth’s daughter was named Barbara. They both claimed Barbie was their Barbara.

        The war with Handler and decreased royalties caused him to drink heavily and use drugs for depression. He later married his Bel-Air neighbor Zsa Zsa Gabor. She was also driven to divorce him for his promiscuity after just over a year of marriage.

        At a very reduced rate, Ryan sold the notorious home he called The Castle in 1977, to finance his lawsuit further against Mattel. He had a heart attack in 1979, and he eventually settled the lawsuit in 1980 after a decade-long legal war with Handler.

        In 1989, he had a stroke, leaving him speechless and confined to a wheelchair. He shot himself August 13, 1991, at age 64, unable to live like this.

    Elizabeth Short, victim of the Black Dahlia murder, the city’s best-known unsolved killing, supposedly made the Cecil her last stop before her death in 1947, though such information is disputed.[8]

    The Cecil is also notable for having been the reported residence for serial killers Richard Ramirez in 1985 and Jack Unterweger in 1991.[9][10]

    Timeline of suicides, murder or unexplained deaths associated with the Cecil:

    On 19 November 1931, the Los Angeles Times reported that a search for 46 year-old Manhattan Beach resident W.K Norton was over. He had checked into the Cecil as “James Willys of Chicago” a week earlier and, once in his room, had taken a number of poison capsules. This appears to be the earliest known suicide at the hotel.[7]
    Less than a year later, the LA Times reported another suicide at the hotel: Benjamin Dodich, 25, had shot himself in the head in his room and his body was found the next morning by a maid named Carrie Brown, though there was no suicide note.[7]
    In late July 1934, a 53 year-old former Army Medical Corps sergeant named Louis D. Borden slashed his throat with a razor in his room. Mr Borden left a note mentioning his ill health.[7]
    In March 1937, it was reported that Grace E. Magro had fallen from a ninth story window. Police were unsure as to whether this had been an accident or suicide, and her fall had been broken by suspended telephone wiring which was “entangled about her body”. Ms Magro died later in hospital.[7]
    In January 1938, Roy Thompson, a 35 year-old marine fireman took “a suicide leap” from the hotel’s top floor. He had been registered here for several weeks and his body was found on the skylight of a building next door.[7]
    In May 1939, another sailor, Erwin C. Neblett, 39, of the USS Wright died in his room after taking poison, and in January of the following year it was reported that teacher, Dorothy Sceiger, 45, had employed the same method and was said to be “near death”.[7]
    In September 1944, Dorothy Jean Purcell, 19, threw her newborn son from a window. Apparently unaware she was pregnant, Purcell hadn’t wanted to wake her sleeping partner, shoe salesman, Ben Levine, 38, when she woke with stomach pains, so she went to the nearby rest room and delivered the baby herself. Believing the child to be dead, she threw it from a window and the tiny body was later found on the roof of an adjacent building. After hearing testimony, a juror declared her account to be “almost beyond belief”, and it was determined she be charged with homicide. However, matters were finally concluded in January of the following year, when Purcell was found not guilty by reason of insanity.[7]
    In November 1947, it was reported that 35 year-old Robert Smith of Long Beach had met his death after falling from the Cecil’s seventh floor.[7]
    On October 22, 1954, Helen Gurnee, stepped from her window, also on the seventh floor, and landed on top of the hotel’s marquee. She had registered as Margaret Brown a week before.[7]
    On February 11, 1962, Julia Frances Moore, 50, climbed out of her eighth floor room window and landed in a second-story interior light well. She left no note, just a bus ticket from St. Louis, 59 cents in change, and an Illinois bank book showing a balance of $1800.[7]
    On October 12, 1962, Pauline Otton, 27, had been arguing with her estranged husband Dewey in a room on the ninth floor when he decided he’d had enough and went out to get some dinner. In his absence, she decided she too had had enough and jumped from the window, landing on top of a pedestrian, George Gianinni, 65. Both were killed instantly. Since no one saw Pauline jump, police initially thought that there had been a double suicide, but on closer examination, it was found that George had his hands in his pockets and was still wearing shoes, which would have been unlikely if he’d fallen ninety feet.[7]
    On June 4, 1964, “Pigeon Goldie” Osgood, a retired telephone operator was found dead in her ransacked room by a hotel worker distributing phone books. Ms Osgood, who had earned her nickname due to the fact that she befriended and fed the birds in nearby Pershing Square, had been stabbed, strangled and raped and near her body were found the Dodgers cap she always wore and a paper sack full of birdseed. Soon after, Jacques B. Ehlinger, 29, was seen walking through Pershing Square in bloodstained clothing. He was arrested, but cleared of the crime, for which no one was ever arrested.[7]
    On 19 February 2013, the naked[11] body of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian student, was found inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel roof. Lam had gone missing almost three weeks earlier, on January 31, 2013, and her decomposed body was discovered by a maintenance worker in one of the rooftop water tanks, after guests had complained about low water pressure and water that “tasted funny”.[12][13] Authorities later ruled Lam’s death as an accidental drowning. Video surveillance footage taken from inside an elevator shortly before her disappearance showed Lam acting strangely, pressing multiple elevator buttons, hiding in the corner of the elevator, and waving her arms wildly, causing widespread speculation about the cause of her death.[14] After the elevator video was made public, many started to believe in a more paranormal explanation, some even going to the extent to claim Lam was possessed. Lam was thought to have had bipolar disorder, which could have contributed to her death as well as her strange behavior in the elevator.[15]
    On 13 June 2015, the Los Angeles Times reported that the body of a twenty-eight year old male had been found outside the hotel. Some conjectured that the male may have committed suicide by jumping from the hotel, though a spokesperson for the county coroner informed the newspaper that the cause of death had not been determined and that his name would not be released until his family could be notified.[16]
    Thus it would appear that there have been at least 15 deaths at the Cecil, resulting from non-natural causes: either as a result of suicide, accident or murder. This excludes the case of Dorothy Sceiger (1940) who was reported to be in a critical condition after ingesting poison at the hotel, but with no further reportage as to whether she died as a result.

      Players should locate an elevator in a building with 10 floors or more, ride it alone and visit different floors in a specific order, with special instructions not to trust other passengers if they join the elevator.[3]

      Floors to visit[edit]

      The player must stay in the elevator for the entirety of this time and press the following floor buttons in sequence: 1 4 2 6 2 10 5 1.[3]

      The game rules state if the ritual succeeds, when the player finally presses 1, instead of going down to the first floor, the elevator will return to the tenth floor.[3]

      Alternative world[edit]

      The game goal is to access “another world”: the tenth floor should lead to an alternative reality, where nobody exists except for the player.[3]

      Travel back[edit]

      The steps must be done in the same sequence up to the fifth floor. Then the final button will return the player to the first floor. The game rules ask the player to check for small things to be sure they are back in the real world and offer steps to do if the player considers this is not the case.[3]

      The fifth floor ghost girl[edit]

      At the 5th floor, a girl could appear, in person or disguised, luring the player. The game rules states the girl must not be talked to. Some versions state that the girl must not even be looked at or touched.[2][3]

        Let me be perfectly clear in asserting that the President most certainly does NOT read this stupid pipsqueak blog, but if he did, I imagine he’d be pretty upset with all of these violent images about beheadings and ghosts and demons and annoying creepy Iranian religions! So just let me insert a word of caution here to remind those who might be playing that Oupnek-hat game or whatever it is, to not become confused with reality, and so PLEASE refrain from any acts of violence like decapitating The President with a vintage antique jewel encrusted scimitar or a custom-designed guillotine assembled from a kit [available online at a verrry reasonable price!] or small petite purse-sized designer chainsaw or an offical ICP hatchet or Berserker’s axe or a 1863 Confederate officer’s sabre or any other sharp objects!

        To address Mr Barron’s concerns about “malevolent ghosts, demons, and random Quipoloth” showing up at the White House or Trump Tower, let me just assure you that these kinds of worries are vastly overstated! There’s really only two kinds of malevolent spirits that you need to worry about, and those are the Angry Ghosts, and the Hungry Ghosts. Now the Angry Ghosts will cause a violent disturbance and throw stuff around and break things and generally keep you awake until you melt down completely and hurl yourself off the top floor of some grotesque downtown hotel. The Hungry Ghosts, on the other hand, won’t bother carrying on with all of the poltergeist crap, they just want to EAT you. Mr Barron should advise the President that if he hears disturbing, inexplicable noises emanating from the White House kitchen area very late at night, it’s probably not a ghost or demon, but just a Poor Person who has snuck into the President’s cabinet.

        When I get back, I’m gonna take a trip with my girlfriend down to L.A
        Gonna stay at the Cecil hotel for a night, where an alleged girl, allegedly named Elisa Lam, allegedly stayed
        It’s been on my mind since I think the story of her death was possibly staged
        She died at 21 years old in 2013, the height of the internet age
        Yet only 2 known photos, plus the one on the elevator with the pixelated face
        Not one press conference about how a Canadian’s dead body was found on that February day

        I once worked at a residential hotel with one fourth the amount of rooms as the Cecil
        And the elevators and hallways were always active with hookers and pimps and drug addicts and SSI people
        And I’m telling you all that elevator footage of Elisa Lam looks totally rigged
        Six hundred rooms and no one walked down the hall and tried to get on that elevator with her
        Who in the fuck do you think you’re kidding?

        Well I’m gonna check it out, I’m gonna ask for the room with the old tenant, Richard Ramirez
        I don’t spook easy and true crime is fascinating to me and that’s my right as an American

        My girlfriend said she’s totally not into it but she’s happy to take me there and drive me home
        As long as in the morning we can visit her parents, and I said, great, I liked the bed in the guest room, it’s nice and soft
        An interesting thing to know in regards to the Cecil
        There are two elevator doors in the lobby and two up above
        On the mezzanine level
        But in the famous footage that you see of the girl there’s definitely an elevator door on the guest room hallway
        ‘Cause when you step out of the door to go to your room you see the white comms that were right in front of her and the wooden panel that goes sideways
        The amount of the activity in the lobby and the elevators in that hotel was more than any in all my years of world traveling
        The amount of staff members and maids and maintenance workers roaming around that place was totally mind boggling
        At all times young, foreign tourists were lined up at the front desk
        As long as lines you’d see at a busy, big city post office
        Would I say it’d be easy to snatch up a girl and drag her up onto the roof in a 700-room place like that?
        Fuck yes
        Would I say she could have been invited up there by a group of people to check out the view? Yes
        Would I say she could have been pulled into one of the multiple shared bathrooms and choked out then dragged up and dumped into a shark tank?
        Fuck yes
        Would I say that she could have easily went up there all on her own and went for a swim? Yes
        Would I believe even more a kid pulled a prank and is sitting back on a love in the soap opera? Yes
        ‘Cause I see no evidence to support her death besides
        Vague news reports
        And one photo of what were allegedly her parents showing up
        At the LAX airport
        Talk of losses but no legal documents have I ever seen to support it
        No lawyers speaking on behalf of the alleged Lams and no friends who ever spoke on Elisa’s behalf

        I asked a parking lot attendant who had been working there for ten years
        “When that girl was found dead up there in 2013, were you here?”
        She said, “Ah, I don’t believe no girl up there ever even died.”
        I said, “Me either but can I ask why you think that, if you don’t mind?”
        She said, “You know how a little thing is said and gets bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger?”
        And I said, “Yes.”
        And she said, “I think that’s what happened next door.”
        I was completely with her
        Caroline picked me up and I told her everything that happened
        She said, “Cool, glad you got that out of your system
        Now let’s go check into a real hotel down the street
        And get down to Manhattan Beach and say hi to Cameron On the way to Long Beach today
        We stopped along the way
        To see her brother and say hey
        To his family and the kids spraying
        Each other with hoses in the yard
        And I thought about when I was young
        And how the yard was so much fun
        Oh, I thought about when I was young
        At the Long Beach airport, waiting for the flight to San Francisco
        Said I like this airport, it’s not too fucking big enough
        At the Long Beach airport
        Waiting for a flight to San Francisco
        I said, “Caroline, thanks for coming down. I love you.”
        She said, “I had a good time and I love you too.”

      • In a new study, electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego have designed a cloaking device that is both thin and does not alter the brightness of light around a hidden object. The technology behind this cloak will have more applications than invisibility, such as concentrating solar energy and increasing signal speed in optical communications.

        “Invisibility may seem like magic at first, but its underlying concepts are familiar to everyone. All it requires is a clever manipulation of our perception,” said Boubacar Kanté, a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering and the senior author of the study. “Full invisibility still seems beyond reach today, but it might become a reality in the near future thanks to recent progress in cloaking devices.”

        As their name implies, cloaks are devices that cover objects to make them appear invisible. The idea behind cloaking is to change the scattering of electromagnetic waves — such as light and radar — off an object to make it less detectable to these wave frequencies.

        One of the drawbacks of cloaking devices is that they are typically bulky.

        “Previous cloaking studies needed many layers of materials to hide an object, the cloak ended up being much thicker than the size of the object being covered,” said Li-Yi Hsu, electrical engineering Ph.D. student at UC San Diego and the first author of the study, which was recently published in the journal Progress In Electromagnetics Research. “In this study, we show that we can use a thin single-layer sheet for cloaking.”

        The researchers say that their cloak also overcomes another fundamental drawback of existing cloaking devices: being “lossy.” Cloaks that are lossy reflect light at a lower intensity than what hits their surface.

        “Imagine if you saw a sharp drop in brightness around the hidden object, it would be an obvious telltale. This is what happens when you use a lossy cloaking device,” said Kanté. “What we have achieved in this study is a ‘lossless’ cloak. It won’t lose any intensity of the light that it reflects.”

        Many cloaks are lossy because they are made with metal particles, which absorb light. The researchers report that one of the keys to their cloak’s design is the use of non-conductive materials called dielectrics, which unlike metals do not absorb light. This cloak includes two dielectrics, a proprietary ceramic and Teflon, which are structurally tailored on a very fine scale to change the way light waves reflect off of the cloak.

        In their experiments, the researchers specifically designed a “carpet” cloak, which works by cloaking an object sitting on top of a flat surface. The cloak makes the whole system — object and surface — appear flat by mimicking the reflection of light off the flat surface. Any object reflects light differently from a flat surface, but when the object is covered by the cloak, light from different points is reflected out of sync, effectively cancelling the overall distortion of light caused by the object’s shape.

        “This cloaking device basically fools the observer into thinking that there’s a flat surface,” said Kanté.

        Haven’t had enough church? Visit St. Mark’s Cathedral, another Episcopal Church with some supernatural tendencies. Take a tour of the East Village landmark where many a body is buried, including the likes of Daniel Tompkins and Alexander Stewart. Peter Stuyvesant, who owned a farm that took up most of the East Village, is said to haunt the area, along with his friends Edgar Allen Poe, Washington Irving and Harry Houdini. Spend enough time around St. Mark’s Cathedral and you’re likely to have some pretty unusual celebrity sightings.

        Not all residents of the cemetery at St. Mark’s have stayed beneath the ground, however. Wealthy department-store owner A.T. Stewart was buried there in 1876 but two years later, as the New York Times reported at the time, thieves snatched his corpse and held it for ransom. His body (at least what is believed to be his body) was eventually recovered and buried elsewhere. St. Mark’s Chruch in-the-Bowery is the second-oldest church in Manhattan, splitting from Trinity Church in 1799. Built on Dutch colonial governor Peter Stuyvesant’s family farm, legend has it that the cantankerous, peg-legged Dutchman still haunts the area. He’s been known to harass clergymen and parishioners, ring the bells, and loudly interrupt services by stomping around and singing Calvinist hymns in Dutch. Apparently, English Episcopal hymns simply don’t agree with him.

        The D.A. could not have asked for a badder-looking, badass, dark-side, black magician. Patrick fit the bill perfectly. He was a tarot card reader on St. Mark’s Place and heavily identified himself with necromancy, a type of black magic. Locally, Patrick Geoffrois got his magical props on St. Mark’s by reading palms and tarot cards. His musical legacy came from being a member of the James Chance Band — having played with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Blondie’s Chris Stein — with his skinny-model good looks. He was neat and well-dressed in a prince of darkness style with plenty of silver accessories, which gave an impression of wealth. http://thevillager.com/2012/03/01/cops-were-spellbound-by-idea-of-magician-as-killer/

      • “In the band’s early days, circa 1975, I lived with Debbie Harry and her boyfriend, Chris Stein, who was the guitarist in the group. I played bass and wrote a few songs, one of which, (I’m Always Touched By Your) Presence, Dear, which is about telepathy between my girlfriend and me, became a big hit.

        Harry had a casual interest in X-Files sort of things — she once told me she thought she was an alien. But Stein had a real penchant for black magic, voodoo, and satanic bric-a-brac, a kitschy obsession with collecting occult trinkets and books. One book caught my eye, and once I had started reading, I didn’t put it down for a week. It was The Occult by Colin Wilson.

      • The DeGrimstons, according to author Maury Terry in his book The Ultimate Evil, settled in New York and “recruited among the artists, poets, and hordes of counterculture youth” in Greenwich Village, the neighborhood where BOC keyboardist Allen Lanier shared an apartment with his girlfriend Patti Smith for much of the 1970’s. Smith, the “punk poet laureate,” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. She recorded four studio albums in the 1970’s and helped write five songs from BOC’s first six albums. She also showed a Processian contempt for the Gospel when she wrote and sang the line, “Jesus died for somebody’s sins, but not mine.”

        By the end of 1971, Lanier had moved into the loft in New York City that Smith was sharing with Robert Mapplethorpe, and three of them lived there together, according to Patricia Morrisroe’s book Mapplethorpe: A Biography. Smith later wrote a book about her close relationship with the controversial photographer who died of AIDS in 1989 and was known for pushing the boundaries of obscenity. Mapplethorpe’s name eventually came up during interviews about the Sam murders.

        Two prisoners who were locked up with Berkowitz relayed to Terry some of what they learned from the convicted killer. Twelve members of Berkowitz’s cult had a hand in the Sam killings, which were planned at the home of a high-level Process leader in Westchester County, north of New York City. The cult’s headquarters was an abandoned church on Salem Road in the town of Pound Ridge. A rural area about 45 miles away from New York City- it’s not the kind of place city dwellers would stumble upon by accident.

        Just three miles away from the Salem Road turnoff was another church, this one made to look sinister through the use of distortion photography. St. Paul’s Chapel, at 313 Smith Ridge Road in South Salem, is pictured on the front of BOC’s 1975 live album, On Your Feet Or On Your Knees. The black book pictured on the album’s back cover looks like the Book of Deeds, a volume in which Process cult members were required to record their crimes so that cult leaders could monitor activity and control members through blackmail.

        The Process, whose leaders sometimes wore capes, was known to raise and travel with German Shepherds. The Sam cult sacrificed German Shepherds to Satan in the mid-1970’s. The dead dogs began turning up north of New York City during the killings in 1976, according to news reports. Three were found in Yonkers, New York, around Christmas 1976, and 85 dead dogs, including German Shepherds, were found in Walden, New York, between October 1976 and 1977.

        A full two years earlier, BOC’s Secret Treaties was released with cover art showing a drawing of German Shepherds at the feet of singer Eric Bloom, who is dressed in a cape, and the other band members. On the back cover, the band is gone, and the German Shepherds are lying dead on the ground.

        The 10 songs on Agents of Fortune, released just two months before the first Sam shooting, include some notables besides the much-discussed “(Don’t Fear) the Reaper.” Proclaiming “no angels above,” “This Ain’t the Summer of Love” is the perfect opening for the season of Sam. “Morning Final,” the dirge about “motiveless murder,” takes place in a big city with busy streets and includes a chase that leads down subway stairs. “Sinful Love” includes the lyric “looking for a pistol” and “I’m possessed.” “E.T.I. (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence)” revisits the theme of conspiracy, with two references to three men dressed in dark clothes saying, “don’t report this.”

        On the subject of conspiracy, Berkowitz said he pulled the trigger in only two of the eight Sam attacks. His neighbors John and Michael Carr, brothers whose father was named Sam and who both died violent deaths before the end of the 1970’s, each pulled the trigger in one, according to Terry. Another shooting was said to have been done by a mysterious figure named as “Manson II,” who lived in Southern California in the late 1960’s and knew the original Manson and members of the Process church there, Terry reported.

        In the final Sam attack, the victims were selected because they were parked under a street light, which created optimal conditions for filming. Three people in a van a few feet away made a video recording, a snuff film of the attack, for sale underground, Terry reported.

        A convicted bank robber named Jesse Turner, who once lived with Smith and Mapplethorpe, told Terry that Mapplethorpe knew about this tape. In fact, Turner said, Mapplethorpe asked him to arrange the killing of Ronald Sisman, the man who had the tape, which was filmed at the Process’ request. Sisman was murdered in 1981, and the two hit men recovered five snuff films from Sisman’s apartment, including the Son of Sam tape.

        Turner said he was a good friend of Michael Carr, who supposedly pulled the trigger in the seventh of the eight Son of Sam shootings. About halfway into the killings, Turner told Terry that he learned “the Process was behind Son of Sam. They called it one of their ‘Apocalyptic Trials,’ which meant a major display of public violence.”

        Central to this story are Les Invisibles (The Invisible Ones), a group of seven beings worshipped by the natives of Mexico and Haiti prior to the arrival of Spanish colonists in the 16th century, identified by some fans as the Loa of the Voodoo religion. Центральное место в этой истории Les invisibles (Невидимые), группа из семи существ , почитаемых местными жителями Мексики и Гаити до прибытия испанских колонистов в 16 – м веке, выявленных некоторыми поклонниками как Лоа религии Вуду. The nature of Les Invisibles is left unclear, though it is hinted that they may be extraterrestrials, or beings akin to the Great Old Ones in the works of HP Lovecraft. Характер Les минипуты остается неясным, хотя и дал понять , что они могут быть инопланетяне, или существа сродни Великих Древних в произведениях Лавкрафта.

        Bear in mind this is the same band- or brand , more accurately- that gave us “Joan Crawford Has Risen From the Grave.” Имейте в виду , что это тот же бренд или зонной, более accurately- , который дал нам “Джоан Кроуфорд восстал из могилы.” Well, without Pearlman, that is. Ну, без Перлман, то есть. With him? С ним?

        An interpretation of the lyrics of the song “Astronomy” by some fans suggests that the star Sirius is of particular astrological significance to Les Invisibles, with clues identifying it as their place of origin; Интерпретация текста песни “Астрономия” некоторыми фанатами предполагает , что звезда Сириус имеет особое значение для астрологического Les минипуты, с подсказки , идентифицирующих его как места их происхождения; it is during the so-called Dog Days of August, when Sirius is in conjunction with the Sun that their influence over mankind is at its apex. это во время так называемых Dog Days августа, когда Сириус находится в соединении с Солнцем , что их влияние на человечество находится на ее вершине.
