    I returned from my 2nd time through Ascension and I feel strength in my devotion to Addison. Strength in my trust in her ability. And strength in her power to overcome the obstacles in her path. After what I witnesses, I have no doubt in my mind that I put my faith in the right place tonight.

    If the first time through was about being present, the second time through is about feeling something. And feeling something powerfully. I felt for so many of the characters tonight: I almost cried as Simon told me his story, and my heart felt like it was going to burst as Addison screamed at the end. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me start at the beginning.

    I arrived in the parking lot to see everyone huddled together. I noticed that Terrance, the same plant I had last time, was our plant again. As a few friends had Terrance as well and his name stayed the same, I thought I would be safe using that name. I ran up to him and said “Terrance, it’s so good to see you again.” He looked shocked and replied with “uhh, my name is John. You must have me confused with someone else.” “Oh my bad, you really look like an old friend.” The group laughed and seemed to buy it. We chit-chatted idly until the van arrived and we entered. I was the first one out. Susan, the handler with the bobbed haircut and the dark eyes, looked overjoyed to see me. “Taylor, I’m glad you came back!” I said I was glad too and everyone lined up against the wall. A normal looking man walked up and down the line, inspected a few of our papers and then informed his mic that I was coming in first.

    I entered the compound and went right up to Mary Lynn and warmly greeted her. She seemed a little surprised but then settled into her warm, yet flirty ways. She gave me a big hug and put both hands onto my face and told me how good it was to see me again. She led me into the picture room where Miles took my picture. Following Hazel’s example, I asked Mary Lynn if I could get a picture with her, and she seemed estatic that I asked. We took a picture together and she asked if she could sign it for me. I agreed and she left the room. Miles and I spoke at length and he told me of how he loved his job and was glad I liked mine. He told me he was grateful for all the OOA has given him and he’d be hard pressed to say anything negative about them. “I was sad that I had no shoes, until I met the man that had no feet.” Always be thankful for what you have he said. Those words rung true even more now that it is the month of giving thanks.

    A new woman entered, and I asked her her name. Mrs. Waters she told me. She took me and lead me through a few hallways until we arrived at the processing room. Simon stood waiting for me, and he came up to me and asked why I had returned. I told him I wanted to make sure Sabrina was okay. He seemed to think on it and then told me to wait there. As I waited, the music changed, and Samson and The Suit (as Bryan calls him) entered the room, followed by Addison being dragged across the room by handlers. They set her in the seat at the the middle processor’s table. Then Josh Randall (of Blackout) was brought out from the door and placed across from her. The Suit asked Addison who she was. “Sabrina Kern” she responded with. The Suit slammed his hand against the table, angrily. “That is not the correct answer” He grabs her face “Who are you!!” “Addison Barrow” she says more meekly. They whisper a few more things and he speaks to Samson, but I can’t hear this over the music so I inch forward. “This is your fault.” The Suit points to Samson. “All of the data we’ve collected, all of it is corrupted now, unusable!! This is all because of them.” This time he points to Josh, and then glares at me. At this point Omar enters the room and stands next to me. Josh notices Omar and waves. Omar waves back. Samson says something that I couldn’t hear and The Suit responds with “Do you think I’m scared of you?! Do you think I’m scared of you!!!? I’m already DEAD.” and he walks off. Samson orders the handlers to take Addison out of there, and she begins to freak out. “Morior Invictus”. Addison collapses to the ground and they carry her out. Omar, another second timer named John, and I are left with Simon. He approaches us each again to ask why we are here and then orders us to strip down to nothing.

    After disrobing down to our boxers, he orders us one by one to a processing desk that he commands. All of the women surround the table. We stand in front of them as they inspect our bodies. He asks who processed me the first time, and I point out the woman and he asks me her name. Sadly, I did not remember, and the women seem very disappointed. I reintroduce myself to her, and her name is Gail. He then asks me to describe the red room last time. Then he asks me to explain my experience in one sentence. I tell him it taught me to be present. He makes a joke saying that I guess I wasn’t that present if I didn’t remember her name. I apologize to Gail directly and tell her that I was not present before processing and it took the experience to make me present. I am sorry. They seem pleased with my answer and all touch me. I am asked if there’s anything I want to say. And I tell Simon that Kim and Rizzo both send their regards. He looks irked and orders me to sit down.

    The other two men are processed and then Simon comes over to me. “Are you close with Kim?” “I would say we are good friends now.” “Oh.” “Hey Simon, what about Marigolds?” He looked a combination of despondent and betrayed. “Is there a story behind this” “Yes” he replies, but then Samson and The Suit returned to the room. They inspected us three, and inspected the two other applicants who were being processed as well. When they approached me, I stood and said “Hi Samson” and put out my hand to introduce myself to The Suit “what’s your name?” but no response. They seemed extremely disinterested in us and continued to inspect the room until they left.

    We were then hooded (still in boxers) and taken to the classroom. As this seemed similar to the accounts of others, I’ll gloss over it. We were instructed to find the heart of the room, in which we did, and the note informed us of a lesson in judgement. A first handler was instructed to tell us one thing she liked about us, while the other was instructed to tell us one thing she did not like (the first liked my hair, and the second thought my eyes were too close together). Then they whispered in our ears a rule they broke and we were to judge them. We were lead back into the processing room and Addison and two handlers were in the room.

    I walked over to her and said “It’s good to see you again, Sabrina”. She smiled and said “Oh, my name is Addison, I am the overseer.” “I’m Taylor, it’s nice to meet you again” “I know who you are.” She seemed very formal with me, so I decided to tell her one reason I was there: “I have a message from Michael Rizzo. When he was here last time you asked him a question and wanted him to think on the response. Well he thought on it, and he wanted me to give you his response. He does not stand by the practices of the OOA or the overseer, but he will stand by you Sabrina.” She looked confused as I was talking but when I said that he would stand by her, she looked as if she could cry. It was pure happiness and love. “Why… why would he do that?” “Because he cares about you, we all do, Sabrina.” “She looked genuinely happy and grabbed my hand, squeezing it tight. The handlers looked concerned and grabbed her, leading her from the room.

    We were then instructed to put on jumpsuits. Afterwards, I approached Simon.
    “Simon, can you tell me the Marigold story?”
    “She was my wife. But she’s dead now.”
    “I’m sorry, Simon, what happe—”
    “I DID NOT KILL HER, if that’s what you were going to ask. I may be a cunt, but I’m not that much of a cunt. I have killed people, I was a marine, but I wouldn’t kill my wife. She was the victim of a home invasion. We kept a gun upstairs, but 70% of deaths during home invasions occur because the gun is turned on its owner. And that’s exactly what happened here”.
    “I’m so sorry Simon. That must be incredibly tough. Do you blame yourself because you weren’t there?”
    “Every fucking day. I wish I could have been there to save her. I love her.”

    I wanted to give him a hug, but he stopped and walked off. Terence/John/Plant pointed out that there was a box on the center table and pondered what was in it since it was the only thing not white in the room. I told him I’d open it. So I stood up and walked across the room and tried, but it was locked. Simon told me to sit down, and from here the event then continued in the normal fashion. We were told to line up, completed the red room, led into the clock room, completed that, but at the end of the clock room, the three repeats were removed by Susan. I also asked her if her name was still Susan and she said yes. We were led out and met Ernest. He asked us questions and I asked him questions of the OSDM and Samson. He seemed to not know anything or didn’t want to tell us. He gave us hoods and then led us to a new area and stood us in a corner. Susan the handler began to play with my hands, stroking them with her finger tips, until finally she gave me a big hug and said “goodbye Taylor.” Then we were led somewhere else and our hoods were removed.

    Addison/Overseer/Sabrina stood before us. She asked us each why were here. I informed her I wanted to let her know I stand by her. The other two said they were here to learn more. She then had us put hoods on again and said “Taylor first.” I was led into the red room again, and as it was removed, I realized THE ENTIRE CAST was standing before me. All handlers, all processors, Simon, Ellis, Samson, Addison… everyone was surrounding me. Addison spoke first “why are you here?” “Because I was worried about you, Sabrin–” “OVERSEER!!!” Everyone shouted in unison. It was so loud and abrupt, I was frightened. “Why are you here?” she asked again. “because I wanted to let you know I stand by your side, Sabrin–” “OVERSEER!!” They shouted again. And then Simon said “That’s it, I’ve had enough, and listed the hood. “Simon, let me talk to her, please” He didn’t care and threw the hood over my face. “Morior Invictis” I screamed… but I didn’t hear anything happen. Addison didn’t fall, no one gasped, nothing. I was left assuming that it had no power coming from my lips… but maybe there was more to I’d find out later?

    When Omar returned, I asked him of his experience. He told me he just spoke of him wanted to find out more and personal growth and then was rehooded and removed. He talked about how amazingly powerful that scene and how cool the whole cast was. After our third was brought back, we heard Simon behind me say “Really lovely conversation you two, seriously lovely” in the most sarcastic tone I have heard in a long time. We were then led into a room with a big desk that Addison sat at, and our clothes were on top. She began to sing in English and it slowly switched into French and then Swiss German. As she sung, she wrote in her journal “My name is Addison” over and over again. When we were dressed. I asked her who the man in the suit was and what control he had over everything? And she just looked at the journal and said “I remember when Michael had this.” And I agreed. Then she leaned forward and whispered “they’re always watching me.” She then started speaking in Swiss German, and we all look confused. She told us that they implanted so many languages in her head, she can’t remember how they got there. She also reads her journal and does not remember writing them.. or living them.

    Handlers came and led us from this room into the sage/ritual room. The ceremony began and after a few minutes, Addison interrupted it. “We know you are not the Oracles we seek, do you wish to continue this or would you rather see behind the curtain?” Obviously we chose the latter. “Then follow me, she said.” She led us to the area where people were getting their hands dunked in the wax. She instructed us to watch. I walked into the room, and she pulled me back to the doorway. She laughed and said “you’re just like Michael” referring to Rizzo. She asked us of what the goal of this was (to repeat the loss of senses of the first oracle). Then she began to excitably tell us that the truth is subjective. She began to rant that the truth is a search engine, but there is a bias. We always search for answers, they they are twisted. We are then taken to the security camera room where The Suit sat in a chair watching the monitors. She asked if there were any promising members and another man said these two–pointing at two people. Addison then leds us to a big area with chairs arranged in a circle. We are asked to pick a question to ask to determine. I decide the question and ask each member. We chose the correct one, and then we are led away.

    We are led to the area that the chosen ones go to. As we pass by, we see all of the processors sitting uniformly and we see a naked woman bathing in blood with handlers all around her. In the room, Terence/John is in there. Addison tells us she is strong and this room was her idea. She never got to say goodbye to her parents, and wants everyone else to have that chance. I tell her “they may never get a chance to say goodbye again” and she looks at me very sadly and then gives me a good two minute hug. She thanks me, gives hugs to the other two and then leaves. We then speak to Terence/John for some time. He speaks of how Sabrina is called Addison always (“some method acting this is!”) and how his friend tried to ask out a handler but they are all crazy. This is really nuts and even as a plant, he’s scared. The OOA had them all fill out life insurance policies and set Aleister Gordon as the beneficiary. He said he wouldn’t sign it, but got a call the next day saying his life insurance was approved. He told us not to speak of this, and he feared what was going to happen. “This is all just fake, right?” He’d laugh nervously.

    The rest played out rather similarly. The chosen one recorded his video, we were taken to the church, and the ascension failed. We ran from the compound and had our picture taken. But then Omar and I were called back. And this got interesting…

    It was Samson who had called us in. Someone who had given me zero notice the entire day.

    “Want to see something… funny?”

    We entered the area with the chairs in a circle and saw Addison pacing in a circle.
    “Who are you?” He said.
    “I am Addison, the overseer”
    He asked her of the oracles, of anoch, and of her devotion. And she responded each time.
    “She thinks this is real. Hahaha. How funny is that?”

    Addison became visibly upset and he continued to laugh. She yelled back at him and he looked at her like and yelled “twenty minutes in the hood!!”

    All of the handlers ran out, grabbed Addison and put her in a chair, put the helmet on and covered her in a red cloth. Addison screamed. And screamed. And screamed.

    It hurt me so much to hear that. To listen to her scream. And to be able to do nothing.

    “You came back for her, right? Well go to her then.” Samson said.

    I ran over to Addison. Removed the cloth and the helmet. I held her hand and as she regained composure, I asked her “who are you??”
    “Addison”
    “Do you have any other names?”
    And as I said this, she leaned forward and whispered faintly in my ear, “just play along..” and she smiled.
    “Hi Addison, I’m Taylor, it’s nice to see the overseer.”

    Samson interrupted with “take her to processing.” I thought it was over, but Samson grabbed me by the arm and led me to processing right behind Addison. Addison was sat at the middle table and I was sat across from her, with Omar standing next to me. And as this scene played out it appeared to be an exact mirror of the scene that played out prior with Josh Randall sitting in my seat. But this time I could hear the conversation. The Suit entered the room and demanded who she was. She said “Sabrina Kern” and he slammed his hand into the table, blaming Samson and us for breaking her, for corrupting the data, making it unusable. He then asked, “what’s your name” And she said “Addison, the overseer”, but as she said this, she was staring at me. And I noticed she had a sly smile. She was lying. This was clear to me. The Suit exclaimed that he was not afraid of Samson and that he was already dead. And then Samson leaned forward to us, apologizing that she is broken. He then orders her to be removed from the room. The handlers grab Omar and I and start to drag us from the room.

    BUT

    I notice Addison is fighting back this time. It’s not like the ending we saw with Josh Randall. Samson notices this too. “Morior Invictus”… but nothing happens. Addison looks a little surprised herself. “MORIOR INVICTUS” he yells. Again, nothing…

    “I am not your puppet” screams back Sabrina.
    “MORIOR INVICTUS” and still nothing. The words have no power over Sabrina.

    “I AM NOT YOUR FUCKING PUPPET”

    This is the last thing I hear as I am dragged out the door of the OOA.

    THIS IS MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIMELINE AND A ROUGH LOOK AT THE SERIES OF EVENTS:

    1. People receive emails.

    2. People are contacted and assigned a time for consultations.

    3. People are called out on FB (Neil King) as detractors, and edited videos are posted showing Sean Decker and Rob Jones proclaiming their allegiance to the org. Neil King claims a video was taken of him too, but it is not posted.

    4. A reporter sends emails indicating a history of fraud and manipulation (via Rob Jones to participants).

    5. There are reports of a woman named Jenna warning participants. (This may be the same girl who ran screaming during [later] consultations.)

    6. GateKeeper5 (GK5) is introduced and urges congregants to find their center.

    7. A newsletter is posted on FB. It looks normal enough. It shows the org welcoming ADDISON BARROWS, as well as someone named James Luther.

    8. The Rosemary Luther vid happens. (A woman is seen blinding herself, and “finding her sight.”)

    9. The Omega Council (who I interpret as the OSDM) become a thing. Detractors are to be reported.

    10. GK5 resigns because he feels the chapter is beyond hope and calls for it to be disbanded. He warns us to notice how easy it was to disrupt our community. He tells us 4 is awoken.

    11. Mike becomes scribe.

    12. Sites are hacked by BOS stating their mission to expose the OOA.

    13. Consultations happen.

    14. GK4 stirs the pot with a FB post, establishing her “voice.” Satirically, she begs for people’s validation through likes. She also posts a new newsletter – edited in sharpie. At the top a hang man game is nearly finished. The answer is Bob Jones.

    15. Addison is brought up in the forum by someone named “Benny” (Mark- her ex) and GK4 responds in a spiteful way.

    16. Sentries are appointed – Melissa and Sean.

    17. GK4 bans Sean Decker, after he attempts an interview instigated by the OOA.

    18. GK4 asks us WHY ARE YOU HERE? in a new FB video. (A recording we hear used again later, during THE ONE)

    19. A scheduled meeting with the OOA is intercepted, and four participants are kidnapped by the BOS- who brings them to a hotel to meet Addy’s parents. Her parents show them a photo of a pretty blonde girl. They say she used to post about kittens, and they knew something was wrong when she stopped. They said she wanted to be an actress, so she came to Hollywood where she met a boy who led her to this cult, that’s taken their daughter away from them. They do not like this guy… Benny, or whatever his name is. The meeting ends and they are to leave through a back stairwell. In the foyer of this hotel, Tom (Addy’s presumed father) takes Russel aside and gives him a stuffed animal. Tom asks Russel to show it to Addison, if he ever gets the chance. It was hers. The stuffed cat is from henceforth referred to as “The Bear.”

    20. The next day, an event at a VFW occurs. A group of participants meet Addy and she gives them each a rose. They enter the hall and find an old dancing man, a strange women, and other such characters to mingle with. One by one, certain of them are individually brought to a room where a hood and helmet are placed over their heads while they are interrogated by GK4. The group convenes, Leaders make a speech, a member of the community is restored. A cello plays ominous music, another speech is made: Addy is to be punished for some sins she has committed against the OOA. As she is about to disrobe, her presumed father rushes in and disrupts the event. Security ram him in to the wall, leaving a head sized hole. Leaders announce the venue compromised, and give instructions to wait until they are gone to leave. Andrew is taken upstairs for a few minutes and instructed to inform the others it is time to leave.

    21. Periscopes begins to broadcast. A series of show Addison in distress. She is seen marking out faces in photos, placing those photos in an envelope, drawing a symbol in blood, then throwing the envelope into the flame while declaring to GK4 that she is ready.

    22. GK4 flees with Addison. The are in hiding. GK3 is introduced. (IS Addison the overseer at this point? because he quickly blocks Masterlock… wasn’t that her as the overseer?)

    23. We officially know 4 is on the run when a letter is dropped and found at a park. The letter states that 5 was the calm, and 4 is the chaos that reflects us. She alludes to people keeping things from others.

    24. GK3 says he’ll answer 2 out of 3 questions. He does this by dropping 2 envelopes at Echo Park. The docs show the hierarchy and the origin of the Gatekeepers and Oracles.

    25. Aleister Gordon calls and sets meetings with several participants. They meet at a seedy bar. While there, he requires the participant present to call another participant- supplying a script that warns the participant that things are not as they seem. He then explains that he had taken an acting job that consisted of him making increasingly disturbing calls. He puts a few participants through a test, they all seem to fail. They were to recruit the bartender, but none were willing. AG explains that there would have been a path to unlock had anyone succeeded. We are unaware of what this path could have been.

    26. Forum members find AG on Facebook and discover that he has ties to Sentinel and BOS.

    26. GK3 threatens AG on the forums, and AG isn’t heard from again.

    27. Benny/Mark posts a message on the forum, pleading for help recovering Addison. He is met with derision. People don’t trust Benny/Mark. He shares a story of how they met at a museum in between castings. He was staring at a painting he couldn’t figure out when Addison walked up to him. She asked him about the painting and he launched in to an explanation about the artist, Carlos Merida (the last name may not be right, but it was Mer… something. that’s not the important part.). She humors him through his speech, until his finished. She points out that the artist he was referring to had actually been responsible for the painting to their left. He fell for her then and there. Whenever they were just trying to make sense of the world, they would look at each other and just say, “Carlos!” with a laugh. He urges anyone that sees her to try to wake her up with that word. People tell him that Addison would have reached out to him by now if she cared about him, but she hadn’t. Instead, she chose to reach out to other participants. The community takes this as a sign from Addison.

    28. GK4 taunts him saying Addison never loved him and to get over it. GK3 posts a brochure that asks, “Does this look like a cult to you?” boasting the smiling faces of participants.

    29. Tom calls Morgan and tells him that Benny/Mark has inflicted near fatal harm on himself by “accident.”

    30. People postulate whether he had been distraught because of the lack of support he found on the forums causing him to become suicidal, or if this was a feeble attempt to draw Addison out.

    31. GK3 demotes our scribe, Mark, appointing himself the position. The community is outraged.

    32. GK4 posts a challenge via video, proclaiming her intents and assets. She says she will end GK3 with “her.”

    33. People begin receiving spoofed calls. The caller ID not matching the voices/sounds on the other end.

    34. Kansas City drop reveals an email between Sam Bickerson (OSDM) and the Clockmkers. It states their fear of “her,” the relocation of assets, and the beginning of “PLAN B.”

    35. There is another drop in Sacramento. Morgan finds four yellow roses, a photo, and an audio file. Morgan shows us that GK4 has Addison, she is still in control, and (through his brilliant analysis), we discover the new math. 4-3=2, hidden in the audio file.

    36. Sam Bickerson (OSDM) posts a copy of a letter on FB urging everyone to forget everything that had transpired. The “creators” had gone way off track. Readers are assured their experience is back on the right course, under new management. Zombies to follow.

    37. Sam then announces an ASK me Anything to be held on the forums. During this time, it becomes apparent that he is part of the darkness.

    38. GK3 reposts Sam’s letters to FB with a small edition: his mark (III) in what we presume to be blood. He also redacts the end. His caption to the post notes that he’s taken care of Sam and his captors. (Mwhahahahha)

    39. A periscope shows Addison writing, “Who am I/II” over and over again until she is jolted by four. She then fills a capsule with a white substance, places it in a bottle, then puts it in a white package she hands to 4, who writes, FOUR my very best.

    40. Kim is invited by GK3 to a lunch via e-vite.

    41. Addison shows up at Derrick’s house, where the community is holding a gathering. She gives them 2 minutes to choose one person to accompany her. The group picks Lauren. She is taken in a vehicle, shown photos, told that they are victims of GK3, and handed the white package. She is made to promise she won’t open it, but told the choice is ultimately hers to choose what to do with it. She is returned to the gathering and discussion over the right path ensues. She decides to keep her promise to Addison about not opening the package. She chooses to deliver it to Kim, who is meeting with GK3 in the near future. Her alliance is hidden from the group (who assumes it is with them).

    42. She gives the package to Kim during a secret meeting. In the vehicle, Lauren was instructed by Addison to persuade Kim to make the right choice. Kim was to use the pill to assassinate GK3.

    42. Kim attends this meeting with GK3. She pretends to mix the solution in to his drink while he uses the restroom. The audience on periscope watch as GK3 returns then pretends to die. He asks if they bought it, laughing. Finally, he instructs Kim to show the camera the pill. She smiles wickedly and the broadcast ends.

    43. GK4 and GK3 make plans to meet.

    44. GK3 requests Kim’s presence.

    45. Kim agrees and is taken to a warehouse, wearing a red hood, where she is greeted by GK4 and Addison. We know this because of a photo posted to Instagram. She is identified through her jewelry.

    46. Later that (same) day, Addison meets Cody at a park. The event is periscoped. Addison is covered in blood. She’s shown attempting to wipe it off as Cody approaches her. She asks him if he knows what it means to be truly free. She then instructs him to watch a video on an iPad. She takes the camera away and begins to film him watching. We only see his reaction. She tells him it is up to him to do what he will with what he saw. A copy will be sent to his email.

    47. Cody shares the video in a forum post. It shows Addison walking up behind GK4, who is chatting with Kim. Addison slits her throat with the same knife GK4 had handed her minutes earlier.

    48. Addison introduces herself as GK2 on the forum and says change is imminent, and asks for patience. She appoints Russel as her scribe. There is some confusion as to Mike’s role. It seems was if Addison was trying to create a wedge between Mike and Russel. However, in the end, the friendship overcame the drama and all was well.

    49. GK2 privately asks Buz if he would be willing to do what she’s done to GK4. He agrees.

    50. Buz meets with GK3 and strangles him during a broadcast, shared with us by Sean (the gilded).

    51. Community is split. People are upset at *witnessing the murders committed by Addison, and now Buz (a participant who is NOT a gamemnaker or plant).

    52. GK2 is on the run. She is a true believer and she has the book (and the helmet?). She broadcasts lessons through Europe. She asks Regent 7 to let “her” die a hero. Community guess who “she” is.

    53. SCARE_LA happens. An invitation only event is moderated by a fake blogger, and the “actors” can’t seem to decide if they are actually acting or not. A panel of participants are asked to share their experience (they were unprepared for this). Tom Barrows rushes in to the event, shouting about the OOA and it’s corruption. During his rant, a video begins. It states that the BOS has hijacked the event. It is revealed that Aleister Gordon is Ellis Gordon, an actor and shows his IMDB page. It warns the “real creators” to come out from behind the curtain. (Around this time, a separate OOG article appears crediting Bousman as creator).

    54. Max is contacted by Regent 7. They meet at a library and he is given Addison’s diary. Regent 7 tells him it is his decision and to do with it as he will, but the book must be returned to Addison. Originally, Max was told he’d have 5 weeks until it was due back. He was given the wrong information, though, and only had 5 days. There was contention on the forum because of the confusion. This was resolved by Max posting the link to the full diary in a forum post.

    55. Within the diary, we learn that GK4 was abusive toward Addison. She had dark plans for those of us already involved with the OOA. She intended to wipe us out for a fresh start.

    56. A “stolen” email is sent by someone named Emily to KingKing33 (is that Neil?). It revealed the ODSM’s fear of Addison as a true believer. They were afraid she would bring forth THE ONE, and that she would share too much. This was not entirely new information, but to have it confirmed via a stolen piece of correspondence only solidified the fact.

    57. Addison, as GK2, posts of the corruption within the OOA. She says their influence goes beyond world leaders. She says they are trying to kill her because she believes the One is among us. She says it’s not what they were expecting. She says they want to silence and destroy her because of this knowledge.

    58. She summons all who wish to meet. She wishes to reveal THE ONE.

    59. Participants, hooded, are taken to a warehouse. There Addison commends the most active members. After, she instructs them to remove their hoods. She tells them how their words have become the new gospel. They are all the one. Together, they are one. She makes this speech, the suddenly leaves the room. Waiters come with food and drink. It seems like it’s a normal mixer… maybe even the ending of indoctrination. The neat little bow. Rizzo is seen talking to Addison, once she returns to the room. Her face shifts, shed walks away from him, and you can see his shoulders drop. She continues to mingle until she gets toward the back of the room, near the light. Russel meets her there, pulls out the stuffed cat lovingly referred to as “the bear,” and shows it to Addison. She takes it, takes a couple steps back, and begins to yell. “You are all delusional. THIS, This is not real! Shit. I’ve got to get out of here. I’ve got to go home.” As the last words were leaving her mouth, all three waiters rushed and grabbed her. Carrying a screaming addison to an unseen place. Russell shouts, “NO, NO, LET HER GO!” The video cuts.

    60. Ascension begins.

    Today I have a party. Tonight I reAscend. Tonight I go through with one of the best friends I could ever have dreamt of having. But right now all I want to get out is this.

    (Ascension 1.0 Spoilers.) *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT* *SPOILER ALERT*

    I was high off of having found out I was along with all of you, the one. I was also extremely nervous having seen everyone gone through the first week and being completely silent about everything. I was extremely nervous when I stepped into that parking lot. I arrived with Tom, Susie, Michelle, and Joe. I was trying my hardest not to shake as I met the parking attendant, someone with whom I’m great friends with now. Mary was already there waiting for us as was a couple, a man, and wife, I had never met before. His name was Tom, hers was Heidi. The husband seemed to have heard about tension just the week before and dragged his wife alone who was not enthused at all. Another guy, Patrick came out of the woodwork to meet us all and we all laughed at the dumpster graffiti and flickering lights that set the mood. Maria then came thinking her time had switched to ours though that was not the case. Then a young woman trying hard to have an American accent strolled up the alley saying “This must be tension… that or you all like hanging in weird parking lots…” Her name was Brit.

    Brit was from Norway and hadn’t been here long. She was very into immersive theater though and had been told this was like LAs version of Sleep No More which she had loved. After a bit of getting to know her a van pulled up and a bald man told us to line up calling our names. Brit. Derek. Susie. Brit was the first one called, and the last one counted and I was right next to her. We started chatting and filling out our forms before he ushered us to put bags on our heads and sit in the van. The van drove a few minutes and then stopped pulling someone (who I later found out was Brit) telling them to knock on the door and wait. We then heard the door slam and drove around the block. The door opens the bag was ripped from my head and I’m told to knock 3 times. I do. The secretary peeks out and smiles at me. That’s a fun sight and an even better smell. “Derek. I’ve heard so much about you, it’s great to finally meet you. We’re going to have so much fun today.” She tells me to sit and fill out the rest of my form. In fact, I believe it was something along the lines of “tsk-tsk-tsk, you didn’t finish your form… we can’t continue until that silly thing is done.” As I fill it out the professor is staring at me intently but doesn’t answer when I try to make small talk. Another participant which I can’t remember came in to do the same and sat on the other side of him.

    After finishing the secretary smiled and said sweet things with a hug then showed me to the bathroom and finally to the file room. There a man took my picture, told me nothing was random and to be present. He walked toward the door and said: “You can always have an out, there is a safeword… coward.” As if that was what I was. I walked into the common room. There was a woman who didn’t seem too enthused doing a puzzle and two handlers. Immediately Brit came to me and said she had found a note asking if I thought there were more. In that moment my nervousness left me as I went into ARG mode. I told her to search for more, but put them back so others could see them as well if we point them out. I started at the snack table and made my way around the room trying to find everything. I found a note that said knock on every wall (something I wish I remembered and had done). Next, on the piano I found a note that said knock on the nearest wall to the note, they were hidden there and if they knocked back they would still be alive. I knocked. No answer. Shannon walked by, whispering in passing “don’t let them catch you knocking.”

    I go through more and more notes all while Sadie hovered near me looking on the verge of tears constantly. I found a book with a small picture in it of someone I thought I recognized. A short woman, a woman I thought had been at the mixer earlier this year. I call her the chipper lady. I look up and Addison was there. The name Carlos escapes my lips and she glared. she turned and made for the door. I followed and she slammed it in my face. When I turned around Sadie was there by the book I was playing with. I asked her who the woman was and she ran off crying.

    Not long later Shannon came to me again and said: “Do you know Joe?” I racked my brain thinking of in game Joes and said I didn’t think so. She clarified he had come with me in the van today. I said “Oh that Joe! Yes, he’s my friend.” She said he was her friend as well and to not leave him alone that night. So I had a mission. Sadie came over and said, “You need to use the bathroom don’t you?” I said I did and followed her. It was occupied and she said “Shit! We can do this here, be quiet. That woman from the picture… that’s my mom. I’m an actress and since I’ve come here I haven’t been back home. She’s probably worried sick. I don’t know why they have her picture, maybe she’s come for me. If you can, if you find her, tell her I’m here.” I had another mission.

    At some point, I saw Tom ushered out in a black hood. I thought this is how it would be, they’ll just bag me and take me, this was before anything really got going in the common room. More clues and notes later Leonard called us all to sit and toast with him. He poured us all punch as Joe walked in. I asked Joe to come sit with me and explained I was told to stick to him like glue. He didn’t know why but I got the feeling they thought he wasn’t going to make it through the entire night. We grabbed punch and toasted. I tipped back the styrofoam cup but didn’t let the liquid touch my lips. and set the cup down. Then we played two truths and a lie. Michelle went first. Then the married man. I guessed his right off the bat and Mildred decided to join in. She said, “I’ve never paid my taxes, I’ve never killed someone out of passion, and I’ve never killed an authority member.” Then she walked away. I said “so we don’t get to guess?” to which the puzzle-woman replied, “She has dementia, she doesn’t know where she is half the time.” And Leonard remarked that he wasn’t sure if any of those were a lie.

    Sadie scooped up Mary, Michelle, and me. She bagged our heads and ushered us into the locker room and I asked if Joe could come with us. Maybe I had already failed. A British man’s voice asked us questions. Mary, to my left, was asked something I forget and seemed to have given a poor answer that made him sad. Michelle on my other side was asked to name three brands of shoes. She gave answers like D&G, Prada, etc. to which she was told she was posh and he changed the question to the last three secretaries of state. She couldn’t answer one and she called her useless. He ripped the bag off my head and asked me to prove I was better than the other two. I replied that I was just a person and was no better than anyone. He smiles and said, “Come on, I know you’re amazing.” This is when I realized this was Ellis Gordon. This was also the start of me noticing how possibly sexist the OOA is. We changed into jumpsuits and were ushered into the big white room shoeless with Simon.

    Simon lined us up and tore them down, by which I mean he yelled at Mary and Michelle and barely paid attention to me. I was sent to the Black woman to be questioned. She seemed very displeased with me. I sat. She didn’t want that. She made me put my shoes on and glared at me in a huff as I made her wait. She asked me all sex questions. How many partners? How many partners at once? Submissive or Dominant? Am I ashamed of anything? All the time very displeased with me unless she was telling a story of the depraved things people had told her the week before. I kind of wanted to know who the “stubby little man” last week was and what “the things he said…” were that made her smile and blush blissfully. When she was done she sent me back to the bench where Simon was screaming “CUNT” at Brit. Someone had to sit on my lap. Mary asked “How are you? What’s your name” and Simon was taken back. He said, “I haven’t been asked that in a long time… not that it matters but my name is Simon, you can call me ‘cunt’ for all you want.” I couldn’t help but mention that was my favorite word and he said “good to know.” Joe came back in the room and sat with us.

    We were then made to walk out and line up in front of a door when Addison walked past and said Glory Be. I whispered Carlos but I don’t think she heard. Simon yelled at us to answer back and in unison from the group “GLORY BE” …”Addison” Mary added. Simon remarked that she may know more than most and that the clues in here required a bit of that kind of thinking. We then entered the red room. On a lampshade I found a message saying there were keys hidden in here. It made it sound like in the sand so I started combing the floor. Brit began the thing. Lining on the rocks and answering things about ourselves which two people in black face and tribal markings began to act out. We noticed the time limit and worked as fast as possible. We made it out with not much more than a second to spare.

    The door opened into fog. We chose to walk to the right. There was a woman that looked dead in a hospital gown. I checked her pulse. The professor started to speak about time amongst the clocks on the wall and after a few minutes Addison checked in on us. I told Michelle to say Carlos but she said it too softly. I nearly shouted it then and her hand gripped tightly as she glared then said “THAT is in the past. DEREK.” I shut up now not knowing what else to try. They paired us up. Joe and I at the end. The make us stare deeply into each other’s eyes, make us focus on the lips, attempt to see their soul. Joe was starting to tear up and I was trying to make sure he was ok. I made it worse. He said the fog may have just been affecting his asthma. The push our heads in for a kiss andJoe pulled away. After they ushered most everyone out of the room and Joe looked at me like “Are we supposed to split?”

    The professor had Mary, Heidi, and I and told us we could go forward on our own path. It may end there back in the parking lot or it may go on. OR. We could go back to the group. I told him Joe said he was fine. Fuck him. I’m going forward. All three of us did. We were taken past walls with graffiti into a classroom. We watched a movie and were told we would be tested. It was still images of Mount Rushmore and human body diagrams with subliminal messages hidden. Afterward, he made us all take a bite of an apple. I spit mine out when he wasn’t looking.

    We came to an altar room with a priest and a woman with no eyes. They told us we were having our senses take. At this point, I wanted to Ascend. I wanted to be the one, I wanted to know God. I was willing to do whatever was asked of me. He squirted a burning liquid into my right eye, but not both. Why am I always half! I tilted my head trying to get it in both. The covered our eyes and Heidi asked if it could not go over her nose. She seemed fine until now, but seemed to be an issue. Mary got defensive and said “LEAVE HER ALONE SHE’S A DIABETIC” The attendant said it was no problem and accommodated. We went into the next room and were told to sit down. A man put his hand on my shoulder and said “Not you but..” so I stood up. He laughed and said “no you can sit but this next part is only for the girls.” he made them put their hands in some kind of altar before giving us a liquid to take our sense of taste away. We ate human flesh then were covered in another layer of blindfolding. Heidi complained again this time she received an “I DON’T GIVE A SHIT LADY. DO IT OR THIS IS OVER FOR YOU”

    I was brought into another room bound and had my hands dipped in wax with no warning. Headphone then went over my ears. Others said they had music, tv static, or moans and screams in their ears. I had nothing. I heard people arguing behind me. “He’s supposed to go to the mirror room” “Why would I take him there that makes absolutely no sense” “can he hear us? I think he can. Look at his posture” I’m sad I didn’t react to this. I thought I’d get in trouble. I thought I wouldn’t ascend if I could hear. I was pushed in multiple directions and in what seemed like patterns. A circle. A square. A triangle. After what felt like forever I was pushed into a chair. The bag ripped off and it was too bright to see. When I formally could see Joe was standing over me with a confused expression and I knew I failed. I wouldn’t ascend because I left him alone. He unbound my wrists and I was told to take the wax off and put gloves on. We were made to put tools on a tray. He kept describing how beautiful each was and I agreed. I asked what they were used for and he slammed his fist on the table. I was told by Joe later it wasn’t my question but Shannon screaming in the next room that made him do so.

    He gave us the option of who would have the responsibility to carry the tray. I didn’t care either way. Joe Told me to take it because he’s shaky and didn’t have his glasses. The Doctor said, “Remember This is the time you COULD have taken the tray.” And someone grabbed Joe and ushered him out. I was taken to an altar room to have my tray blessed by the oracle. The room had only one entrance and was pitch black. The doctor was chanting and suddenly a face appeared, a black tribal face with an ornate headdress. I thought it was different than those in the red room. As soon as it had come it had dissappeared then I stood up with the tray and turned around to see Addison. She led me to the sermon hall and instructed me on what to do. I brought the tools when asked and bowed. Brit was on stage with Tom Hite. I sat next to his wife Susie. She was making me laugh, he had ripped his pants and his boxers were showing. Addison on the microphone stopped her speech with a “RIGHT DEREK”. I’m not sure I pissed her off with the Carlos’ or if I was disrupting everything with Susie.

    Brit didn’t make it. I liked her. I indirectly killed her. Tom was passed out as Sadie told us to run. This was our chance and what did I do? I said, “But there’s a second one. we have a second chance right there!” pointing at Tom. Men walked toward his passed out body then we were all made to run. So I did. Sadie was grabbed up and I ran and grabbed her. A man picked me up and tossed me one way with a “You go that way.” And it was done. Pictures and handshakes.

    I’m sure most of you have seen the post from Darren Lynn Bousman describing the creation of The Tension Experience. It’s a good read, covering the creative inspiration that led him to create this project in the first place. But something at the end stood out:

    The CULT of Tension is real. Its message and teachings are real. Please help and support this in the next few weeks because ultimately, I too, am just another puppet of the Institute…

    Going back through the forums, it seems that given the Ellis Gordon fake-out there was some early discussion that perhaps Bousman and Clint Sears were also just fronts designed to draw attention to The OOA to help them recruit. Is this him saying as much, hidden inside a message designed to promote the “immersive theater experience” that is Ascension?

    Granted, I know there are much simpler ways to read that text, and I may just be looking for things that aren’t there in the hopes that us latecomers will still be able to be part of some Indocrination-like experience. But I couldn’t help but notice that just around the same time that the blog post was promoted, The Tension Experience Facebook page posted its own update:

    This story isn’t over yet… get ready for a third act twist.

    Glory be, indeed.

    Do you have Tension related photos? Do you have objects, flyers, emails, or other random things that are Tension related that you could take a photo of? Have you gone to a Tension social or event, or even snapped a neat screenshot from a Periscope? If the answer to any of these things is “yes” please consider uploading your stuff to instagram and tagging #thetensionexperience.

    I did this today, and although it felt like it took decades since I’ve refused until today to partake in the evils of instagram, I’m now glad to have a record of all I’ve done and some of the great people I’ve met.

    Let’s publicly display our love and enjoyment of this thing!

    Here’s mine: Instagram – Kimberly/Electric Hippo

    Let’s see yours.

    If you need extra encouraging, how about this: I uploaded some pics that showed Ellis Gordon/Andrew Perez participating in Tension and he wrote back with some weird sh*t. Fun right?

    @mike

    Since you seemed to not read anything I wrote except what you quoted….what did I say, in that post, that had anything to do with Ellis?

    Well,

    The OOA has given us their story on how they came to be, we know most of the people within it and their rank

    No, you know what they have told you, you don’t know that it’s true.

    they have sit and talked with us in person

    You don’t know who is sitting and talking to you in person. You do now know that it is not who they say it is, thanks to BoS.

    Despite your feelings on the OOA or the points I just made, they are factual and true.

    No, you saying something is factual does not make it factual. Evidence suggests you are being lied to.

    Why wait to expose everything if they’re sick of the cat and mouse game?

    BoS has been trying to expose the OOA, they have not been waiting, they have been trying every since you joined this experience.

    If the OOA is that bad, wouldn’t everything be exposed by now?

    Some might say it has been – without taking into account anything BoS has said or done.

    Has anyone in BoS actually met Sentinel? Even BoS members have met the OOA’s Gatekeepers.

    Did you meet Ellis Gordon? Are you sure?

    Sentinel does not promise answers and then feed you lies. Sentinel promised to expose the OOA, and that seems to be what’s happening.

    There is – literally – blood in their hallways, whereas our house is clean.

    @amieexists The person announced as Ellis Gordon was just an actor, and the point of exposing this is to further illustrate that the OOA is full of shit, and lying to you at every opportunity.

    I’m glad to see the video released but I have to say it doesn’t really answer any questions. I’m also wondering this…when the BoS hacked the Tension site they released a few names behind Tension, one of those being Ellis Gordon as the puppet master. If the BoS knew Ellis Gordon was actually Andrew Perez why didn’t they give us that information back then? Or did it actually take them 4 months to figure it out? What is the goal of the BoS, is it just to make people aware that the OOA isn’t what it seems to be? This just makes me think about that leaked email @kingkill33 received and I’m still left with too many questions.

    @lenize: Agreed! Lol! Hard to deny this truth regarding Picture 20, although he is also Andrew Perez aka Ellis Gordon.

    Picture 21 looks a lot like the unnamed man who appeared in the III murder video with Buz and III.

    That is an iMDB page for the “actor” playing Ellis Gordon.

    Hello all,

    Here is what occurred on 8/6/16 to 8/7/16.

    At the ScareLA convention in Pasadena, CA, The Tension Experience hosted an exclusive panel for winners of the lottery.
    Hosted by a man named Jonathan Luther, the panel started with Apostles @electrichippo, @mike, @kasch and Scribe @reaton being called up to the panel to help explain The Tension Experience and answer questions.

    Afterwards Jonathan called up “Ellis Gordon,” a young man in his twenties supposedly responsible for creating Tension.
    Ellis explained that he created the Experience after purchasing a antique drawer from his deceased Grandfather and finding a hidden page and book describing the Church of Anoch within.

    Mentions of Anoch are quickly responded to strongly by several older members of the audience shouting “Glory Be!” and bowing in prayer.

    The panel quickly became chaotic as several members of the audience joined Ellis on the panel, led by a man named Atticus. They expressed confusion at claims that the OOA was a fictional organization, or even a cult, as they took over the panel.

    The panel is then approached by Trista Robinson, a young girl who was curious about the Ascension event and “wanted a taste.” Answering her request, an older woman on the panel takes her behind the curtain next to the stage, Several minutes later, Trista runs out screaming, clearly distraught at what was presented to her. She runs out of the panel room.

    Another audience member rises, an older woman. Clearly furious, she explains that the OOA had an installation in Oklahoma and that they hurt her brother. These claims are quickly dismissed by the panel and she sits down again, muttering to herself.

    Suddenly, Tom Barrow, Addison’s father, reveals himself from the audience, handing out pictures of Addison and screaming that the OOA has made his daughter a murderer. Imploring the audience to “film it all,” Tom attacks the panel. In the ensuing chaos the panel members and Jon leave the room, but not before releasing a new OOA video.

    The video is soon intercepted by Sentinel, displaying a shadowed figure. The figure mentions that it is time to step out of the shadows, and challenges the OOA, displaying the images of many Apostles and “behind-the-scenes” members of The Tension Experience. In particular, “Ellis Gordon” is revealed to a fake, an actor hired to pose in his place. The panel ends, and the audience is escorted out of the room.

    After the panel, Apostles congregate outside of the room, In particular Sentry @mkarrett is able to converse with Trisha Robinson. Trisha reveals that she is an actress, hired for ScareLA. However, she claims that the OOA took photos of her in her apartment and sent them to her, despite her apartment being gated and highly inaccessible. @mkarrett gives Trista her e-mail address.

    Apostle @thebuz, murderer of @gatekeeper3, is spotted during the panel and after, highly distraught. Attempts to converse with him are met with silence and solemn expressions.

    The Tension Experience also posts two photos on Instagram. The photos are of Apostles attending ScareLA at a close distance. One is titled “Always watching, closer than you think.”

    In light,

    Your Chroniclers

    I recognize Darren Lynn Bousman (middle right) of course who has repeatedly said he does not want to be involved and his good friend Clint Sears (bottom middle) The guy with the dreads looks so familiar but I cannot pinpoint name. And then of course there is Ellis Gordon, which if I remember correctly came up when the video said “Ellis Gordon is not real”
