Map Of The Internet

I saw this today. Breath-taking. It's a map of the internet, created by some guy who set a trace-routing program running across the web, following different connections. The different colour represent different countries. It's like a huge brain, a cluster of neurons, much like the noosphere envisioned by Pierre Telhard de Chardin.

An Innocent Question: Where on Earth is Darius Lockwood?

People who know me say I’m prone to paranoia. Fair enough, but in the words of the popular song, just because you’re paranoid don’t mean they’re not after you. As it happens I don’t think anyone’s after ME exactly, but I am starting to get a little concerned about our friend Mr Lockwood.

Let’s examine the evidence:

1) His site hasn’t been updated since November last year.

2) He doesn’t seem remotely concerned that a memory stick is missing which contains not only a great deal of his research and articles he was working on, but also large amounts of his personal diary. You’d think he might be keen to get this stuff back. Keen enough maybe, to answer emails telling him that it has been found. Keen enough to respond to Facebook messages. Lisa emailed him at the beginning of the year. I’ve been trying to since I found out. And nothing. Not a dicky bird.

3) Most perplexing of all, click on any of the links to his published articles on his website and you find they’re all dead. This happens or this. I’ve written to editors of each of these publications but have heard nothing back so far.

Suffice to say, I’m starting to get all kinds of thoughts going through my head. In fact, I’m not sure I should be posting this at all. I’m going to shut up now, and forget all about it. Yeah, I’m sure everything’s fine. Lah de dah just going about my day.

The Mysterious Case of the Man Who Lost His Memory Stick

Lots of very weird stuff happening at the moment. I received an email today from a woman called Lisa who found a memory stick on a New York subway almost two months ago. The memory stick appears to have been the property of one Darius Lockwood, investigative journalist and expert chronicler of all things underground.

On her blog trying to find track down the owner of the memory stick, Lisa has uploaded a few of the images. Suffice to say there is some pretty startling stuff on there. It seems Mr Lockwood (or whoever the stick belongs to) was exploring much of the same kind of thing that’s been fascinating me for so long. Check out the Conspiracy Mindmap here. It’s all there: Albert Pike, Augustin Barruel, Pierre-AndrĂ© Taguieff, Robert Amberlain, and the Weavers are all over the place.

Also, looks like he was researching Gnosticism for an article and was naturally drawn towards The Knights Templar, the Cathars and, of course, The Weavers. This is from a diary entry found on the stick here:

(not that I condone publishing private info on the web, but she's saying the owner might google phrases from it to find the drive.)

‘Different historical periods who also required a different implementation of Gnosticism. During the Manichean and Cathar Gnostic movements, it was all about purity of conduct and integrity. In 2nd and 3rd century Alexandria, it was all about individualism. And today? In the age of saturation and ennui, maybe it’s all about tearing down the palace walls and setting fires to wake people up?’

Police Camera UFO Action!

[via Phantoms And Monsters] "This video was shot in October 2007 and just recently released by Mexican officials. During a traffic stop in the State of Vera Cruz, Mexico, a patrolman sitting in the car turned the police video camera to the left to capture the image of a UFO hovering near the highway."

Morphing UFOs from South India

Amazing cameraphone video. One of the posters on the Youtube page nails it:

"If that is a visual effect then it must be from ILM. Its time to gather people for big protest marches and get some serious attention. How dare the people we elect to authority continue to keep us in the dark about what's really being found with our money."
