1- III is by far the biggest vilain in this war.
2- Even if her inoccence have been broken, II have the potential to be the most decent of all the Gatekeepers.
3- I getting use to this ARG grey vs grey morality.
I, Michel Rheault,until or unless any informations came who can broke my trust, i pledge allegiance to II, against III, but neither to the OOA or the BOS and frankly hope than Mike and Russel theory of a Addison-founded third faction came to be comfirmed.
Long live II, Death To III.
July 27, 2016 at 4:46 pm #16608
*unhappy sigh* Another convert to the cult of Addison…
July 27, 2016 at 4:47 pm #16609
I still believe the gatekeepers will continue to get…worse?…with each new incarnation. I think we’ll eventually see a MUCH darker side for Addison.
July 27, 2016 at 4:50 pm #16610
July 27, 2016 at 4:52 pm #16612
As i said, if proven mystaken, i’m ready to return to my original neutral stance.
July 27, 2016 at 5:03 pm #16616
If I ever had the hunch that Addison is the way to go, it has been because she seems to be the protagonist of this story and protagonists usually end up victorious, however something in my gut tells me to not swear allegiance to her. Plus, she seems to care for only a few, not the whole community. Four was at least a leader, @gatekeeper3 is a leader. I don’t see that in Addison, up to the point where she killed Four, she had that naive, confused side of her. I wouldn’t call her “innocent” though, and that’s what everyone seems to see in her. I just stand by me and you guys for now.
July 27, 2016 at 5:09 pm #16617
High five for that shit 🖐.
To you I say ✌ (not to be confused with II)and also 🖖.
July 27, 2016 at 5:12 pm #16618
Yes!✋ back at ya, 👌, and 🌮🌮🍻
July 27, 2016 at 5:22 pm #16619
You search for a protagonist, me for a good guy and Addison, by the standard of this story, is still the nearest of a good guy i found yet.
Is a naive decision, and backlash was to be expected (and i’m preparing myself for the possibility than it explode in my face), but i’m not alone to be naive, and its is unexpected than my companion in naivety don’t manifested yet, HEY RUSSEL, I THINK YOU OWE ME A THANK YOU FOR JOINING IN YOUR STUPIDITY !!!! LOL

Not calling you naive, sorry if it came out like that we all have had different experiences with Tension and makes our minds go to different directions, which I think it’s awesome!
July 27, 2016 at 5:39 pm #16622
No offense taken, your commentary just reflected my own prudence.

Like @chicar and after much contemplation I too have decided to take a side. It was not a decision taken lightly.
A few things stand out to me and keep coming back to my thoughts…
Regent 7 said “He called himself a destroyer, but lived the life of a fool. Answer will he to The Order. His punishment long and arduous.” III maybe? Regent 7 also stated
“Know that there is still good within these walls. There is still hope. There is still Ascension. Band together. Unite. Bring down the one who destructs, and pave the way for II. II is now and future.”
And finally, Regent 7 said “Her slumber maybe restless but she still does sleep and so, bask in the forthcoming knowledge as this is truly a step forward for ALL.” I feel this is in fact Addison. She is in a zombie like “sleep” moveing about restless. Once she truly awakes she will be the true future.
Overseer also made a statement “one will lead you in the direction of light, the other dark. As with all of life, you must choose.”
So, I stand with II
July 28, 2016 at 12:10 pm #16660
I am not the one who makes the ultimate decision of who is accepted and who is denied, but in light of all these choices and non choices, and as the first BOS recruit of this new era, my opinion is this: I prefer to work with those who are confident and determined in their choices, and don’t need constant reassurance and explanation. If this doesn’t describe you, The OOA, Addison, or even the Flying Spaghetti Monster might suit you better than Sentinel.
July 28, 2016 at 12:35 pm #16661
How did I miss the Flying Spaghetti Monster faction?? So many rabbit holes…
July 28, 2016 at 1:20 pm #16664
Ah yes. Flying spaghetti monster. I have a friend who is a minister or something. I pointed him this way but have not seen him yet
July 28, 2016 at 1:30 pm #16670
July 28, 2016 at 1:16 pm #16663
I know my choice is clear, made with confidence. I do not need reassurance.
Or was your statement a general one to all?
July 28, 2016 at 1:26 pm #16667
July 28, 2016 at 1:32 pm #16672

As I’m catching up on the activity feed scrolling on through I see the words Flying Spaghetti Monster and at work I literally said out loud, Oh my god. Then I laughed and laughed. 😉

I stand with Flying Spaghetti Monster.
At least I can eat him/her when I don’t like their style anymore.
July 28, 2016 at 7:24 pm #16686
Because I like you Jake, I want you to know you should reconsider standing with the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I must leave it at that.
July 28, 2016 at 1:31 pm #16671
I think I’ll wait to declare my side.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a fence,
because at the time, it made so much sense.
The narrative demanded, that he choose a side.
So he picked by the trail left by the one that had died.
So ever since the beginning , I have thought that there was more to tension than meets the eye. That the story line is a front for something much more profound.
This thought has,(much like every other thought of tension) waivered and wiegned.
The endgame is unclear.
Has had me lured in from the beginning (much like the rest of you) with promises of enlightenment. But anyone whom has studied texts on enlightenment, knows that as much as outside sources can aid you.. enlightenment can only come from within.
While I have learned many lessons being a participant, I owe this to Tension as a whole including the community in my mind.
The OOA has a long history of corruption, Insurance fraud, murder , and ultimately theft through said murder and fraud.
They claim that they want to enlighten the world and that it is the people involved whom ultimately cause the corruption.
They have said that this experience was a reset, to gain new followers to start fresh.
Yet the cycles continue to unfold.
The murder, the fraud , the loss.
NONE of this was done by the community but rather perpetuated by those within the Institute itself.
So my question is how in the hell can they expect things to go differently without change in the actions of themselves?
This reminds me of my child who knows better and yet continues to act the same regardless.
Wanting a fresh start and then repeating the same transgressions.
In the institutes case, these transgressions will only perpetuate the same things they claim to wish to end.
There is hints of MK ultra like mind control, the helmet(which I feel has potential to be used for good or for bad) , drugging foods etc.
Finally , they support murderers. Ones whom have killed for no justifiable reason.
Do not confuse this as an opinion that condones no violence ever.
I assure you all that any action ever threatening myself or my loved ones would result in my own defensive violence. This I would see as justifiable, as would the fundamentals of natural law.
I cannot support those actions of the Institute.
I do however feel for Anoch, as everything he attempts to build always appears to be overcome by darkness in the end.
I would be silent as well.
If that is the price of so-called “enlightenment”, you can all have it.
The price is to high for me.
While the lines are fuzzy and grey, they have not caused harm to another as I can recall, they do not try to control minds and they have definitely not been involved in murder fraud or theft as far as I know.
They scream that the OOA is an evil cult. While there may be no real word verifiable proof of these things… IG , there seems to be enough of that going around.
I do not think, as Megan pointed out, that we will ever receive that kind of proof.
The BOS has aligned with a murderer.
I have chosen to stand with the BOS,
Not Gk3. I would stand next to him depending on his future choices. This is not to say that I feel he is beyond help however.
In the beginning it was quite taboo to jump sides. People were banned from the forums as a result of doing so. I did not want that to happen. Much was still unclear at that time.
Much still is unclear.
If the BOS were to engage in the types of patterns we have seen of the OOA,(unjustifiably) I would adapt accordingly.
I like how there was a transition at some point where everyone went from swearing oaths to saying “I stand with”.
I can get behind that.
While I stand with the BOS, I do not turn my back on ANYONE. There is light and dark within us all but CHOICE is the determining factor of what we are to be.
I believe there is good and bad on both sides, one just happens to be much more dark than the other.
I feel that we are ultimately all ONE.
We ARE the tension experience.
I would help any good person and would also help someone who is bad to attempt to make amends and try to start a new path.
I still hold close to my thoughts of the origin story of the OOA , and hope that this can someday become a reality without all of the negativity accompanying it.
Sometimes bad must be done to clear the way for good. Yes, sometimes a negative can create a positive. I do not see that this is being done at the time by the OOA however.
I think that we are ALL being played here to some degree.
Just like we were all played against each other by gk5.
Wars waging, friends on opposite sides, divide in the community.
I will leave it at this for now.
A shout out to the whole community, If you are ever out in western Canada and need help, a place to stay, just want to hang out, or pretty much anything else, I got your backs.

July 31, 2016 at 4:29 pm #16914
Wait… that guy stole my moves!
July 31, 2016 at 4:48 pm #16915
@sovereignskies you are correct in that all of us are being played. I also agree that a negative could create a positive and bad must be done to clear the way for good. Focus on the task at hand. Sometimes the right decisions are not the easy ones.
I once had a sergeant major, just before Afghanistan, tell me… Don’t try to reason it. Don’t look for the answer. You are here to commit violence on the evil… You are their day of reckoning. The weak of this country, the ones that want to live, to farm, to raise families. The taliban won’t allow it. You are that violence, you are that vengeance, you are that day of reckoning.
Go out and execute extreme violence.
Now some may look as that as some brainwashed infantry bs but I will say this…
The scared, the poor, the children. They wanted us there so they could just live.
I know I am going kinda deep for a game but it still rings true…
We don’t know everything. We don’t know what is going on behind the scenes. We are only shown pieces. Pieces to shape how the presenter wants us to view the narrative.
Much more to come and I can’t wait to see what it is

B.C. is a beautiful province man.
I spent a lot of time on the coast in my younger days.
My father has a few places in BC.
A place in the Okanagan and a fishing lodge on an island off the northern coast.
I myself, am over one province, in Alberta.
My family and I hope to relocate to BC if the opportunity presents itself.
I will not comment on wars or thaliban.
I am a conspiracy nut and as a result I am sure we have quite differing opinions.
I do however respect your courage to defend what you believe in.
If I had a venue to do the same for what I believe in, I would gladly put my life on the line.
It is easy to convince yourself a cause is just… even more so with carrots dangling for you.
Those whom use others for their own means always paint their enemy as the bad , “evil ones”, liars , betrayer’s of truth , or whatever suits the cause.
I go with my discernment and by the way things are presented through the narrative so far.
August 1, 2016 at 5:04 am #16929
yeah @sovereignskies Afghan was what it was. As a Soldier we didnt get to pick what we did but that is that. I am sure your feelings are not that far removed from my own. I had a few friends from up around the Pacific Northwest US and they said that BC is a place you have to experience at least once in your life.
When my 2 boys get a little older to appreciate it, I plan to make a trip up. Until then, I guess I am stuck with Disney World and Legoland down here in Florida.
August 1, 2016 at 10:10 am #16942
I have to admit, @sovereignskies that you had me thinking long and hard about your statement. All of us were intrigued by the thought of ‘enlightenment’ but have found very little of it since the OOA keeps everything under wraps, even for those that have plead allegiance to the institute. All we have seen is the negative effects and manipulation that comes from them, I thought it was less, I was wrong, I open my eyes and see this now; I have spoken before on how the BoS has always intrigued me, their actions seemed to have a more logical sense than any of the other shenanigans that happen around here…except for having GK3 as an ally and it turned me off at the time. I find it dangerous, I do not trust GK3, but it gives me a sense of relief when @electrichippo said “To be clear though, III did not defect to BOS. He’s not one of us. He is, hmmm… let’s keep it simple and call him an ally” to Ezi. If Addison was able to rise to be Gatekeeper 2 while by killing a respected member of the OOA, and the OOA stands by her actions for such an uncalled for act, what else can we expect? I’ve heard everyone’s stories, I have to stand with the BoS, but I stand primarily with the community regardless of what your allegiance is. If the BoS is willing to accept me then awesome, in the meantime I wished to state what my position is based on my own logic, not sure if it matters since I am here from a distance in Arizona and with ‘Ascension’ just around the corner, but I refuse to keep fighting my gut feeling. Glory be no more for me.
August 1, 2016 at 10:24 am #16945
I am glad to have helped to inspire you to follow your own logic.
Our numbers grow.
I stand with the community as well.
As I previously stated, I wouldnt turn my back on a single one of them personally.

I’m honestly unaffiliated at present. There’re no clean hands, and there has also been a distinct lack of proof from any side in regards to what they offer. I’m not discounting anyone, but, at present, I’m not comfortable aligning myself with any party either.
August 1, 2016 at 8:50 am #16935
Awesome list! Thanks, I’ve been roughly trying to keep track of whos who in my head, until recently.
So my thoughts are maybe a bit different.
“I think that we are ALL being played here to some degree.”
I agree with this statement from @sovereignskies. However, believe this is the job of the gatekeeper and I respect the Gatekeepers’ duties. Too me, a gatekeeper is a protector. They guard entrances and prevent unauthorized entry. So I respect the Gatekeepers but in the end They are ALL in my way of obtaining enlightenment with the Institute. They specifically throw us into turmoil to shake out the weak and make each of us sweat our true personalities so They can decide in the end who gets through the gates. The OOA will never reveal anything to those who remain on the wrong side of the gate. The Gatekeepers are trying to protect the combination and we need to pick the lock.
I am willing to work for what the OOA has to offer. So I suppose I shall put it this way…”I love the leader”
Can I sign the deed to my house and the bill of sale for my truck over to the Insitute and send it to the address on your email? This way maybe the claims of insurance fraud can be avoided next time around.

I became Scribe under Gatekeeper 5. I was given this title on 4/21 and Four didn’t appear on the forums until 5/1. I say this to preface what I’m going to say.
Four and I got along. She had my back when I spoke my mind. That is why I still stand with her AND her memory. It wasn’t because she gave me a title, because she didn’t. It’s because she spoke the truth (sometimes harshly) and treated me, my words, and all of us, with respect.
III came in and treated us like servants and idiots to do nothing but bow down to him. No, just no. He (allegedly) murdered a bunch of people within the OOA who were also showing us kindness and respect (Aleister, Overseer, etc). I’ve said this (or something similar) to Aleister back in the day privately, but when you fuck with my friends, the gloves are off. Even though I never met these people, I had their back, because they had mine and did nothing disrespectful to the community.
BoS – They make their “grand entrance” by “hacking” the site, Facebook, and Instagram. They kidnap a loyal member(s) to an event just to push their agenda. I’m just stating facts here, but nothing they have done so far has been “legal”. Sure, one can argue that they did these things for the greater good, but when a starving man steals food to eat, he’s still breaking the law.
Now Gatekeeper 2, the third side of this triangle, the misunderstood Addison. You come here and murder someone who told the truth and treated us with respect. You cowardly crept behind her to slit her throat and then say you’re offering us “trust”? lolwut? On top of that, you name @reaton Scribe? The title III stripped of me? Why? To try and cause “Tension” between two best friends? Because he’s your “best boy”? I have nothing but love and support for @reaton, so nice try with that one. It’s not his fault you forced this upon him.
Everyone feels like they need to pick a side. You don’t. You don’t have to have anything next to your name on @electrichippos list, which btw is a cool list! I’m not knocking it). You don’t need to answer to anyone but yourself and what YOU’VE seen or experience. I had joked with @electrichippo to add an “FE” next to my name as far as my “side”. The “FE” stands for “Fuck Everyone”. I still stand by Four and if that isn’t good enough, then I am sideless. That is my side. Rogue. Anarchy. Chaos. I don’t believe I’m alone here. I’ve been ready for this war to begin, let’s do this.
I’d like to quote Blood for Blood right now as it seems fitting:
“Alright, here we are, back again and nothing’s changed except maybe for the worse.
And I gotta ask ya, ever took a look around at the sick world we live in and wondered, why?
And you ain’t got no answer, so maybe you ask your girl, your boy or your friend or something.
And they ain’t got no answers.
So you figure.
I guess we’re all just fucked.
The world is going to hell tonight, but tonight I’m feeling alright. So let’s fucking go.”

August 1, 2016 at 2:38 pm #16993
@mike, I’m with you on this one though maybe for slightly different reasons. To me, ~Four was chaos, but at least she spoke her mind and encouraged us to speak ours.
III never sat well with me, and I was fully ready to go to BoS until it came out that they were aligned.
And now 2… Addison warned me at the mixer to not get too involved, to not appear too interested. But either she’s playing a game here that hasn’t been revealed, or she’s gone back on her previous stance, and for that I’m not sure I trust her either.
If anything matters, I’m anti-III and anti-2. I’m not sure where that puts me, but my _path does not seem to lie with either of them at the moment.
August 1, 2016 at 2:30 pm #16988
I was a supporter of Four, but now that she is no more, I must move forward accordingly. I declare my allegiance to the BOS. I will do whatever is needed to become a member, my loyalty belongs to them now. The OOA gives me nothing to stand for at this point, and no one worthy to stand behind. Without something to believe in, and a leader to bring me towards the path of enlightenment I originally embarked on, I don’t belong there anymore. I thank them for everything they have done for me. BOS, I’ll be seeing you soon.
August 1, 2016 at 2:47 pm #16997
I have changed as a person. Not in a fundamental way, just in teeny tiny steps. Where I was once filled with despair, I exist now with that pain suppressed. Pushed back in corner where I won’t let it hurt me.
My days were slightly darker in the past. Not anymore. I’m not the person I was yesterday. And I have more faith in myself that tomorrow will be better in some way than today.
The struggle continues. It’s not over. But I’m so much happier than I even thought possible. And I owe it all to the OOA. To the Gatekeepers who taught me. And to the friends I’ve made along the way.
My _path is with Anoch. My journey is in tandem with those that walk alongside me as we move forward into the Light.
I want to hear the words of Anoch. Teach me. Guide me. And I will follow.
August 1, 2016 at 5:21 pm #17031
imho: What proof is there for the corruption, murder, insurance fraud supposedly perpetrated by OOA? Something from BoS? Or a tool of BoS? Someone claiming to be an investigator? What if BoS is in reality a “department” within OOA tasked with spreading rumors, charges, and other disinformation in a effort to “weed out” the “unfit”? Note that OOA rarely, if ever, responds directly to BoS claims. I, for myself, trust noone.
I keep going back to the original statement of Tension, about using fear and paranoia, and especially the one about NOTHING BEING AS IT SEEMS!
Thank you for your time.
August 1, 2016 at 5:34 pm #17033
Can anyone give me a overview of each of the sides?
August 1, 2016 at 5:39 pm #17034
I think everyone has a personal overview of each of the sides, it really depends on your experience.
August 2, 2016 at 8:47 am #17077
I am finished with the indecisiveness. I stand with the BoS. I cannot dig the continual corruption and hypocrisy within the OOA. 2 may bring a nova vitae to the OOA, but until then, I must stand against the actions up to this point.
I will consider III an ally until he does something more brash and brazen than the OOA. I love you all, and will not spurn you, as many others have stated. I just hope we’re all doing what’s best for us.
August 2, 2016 at 9:08 am #17079
August 2, 2016 at 9:23 am #17080
As part of Team Anti-Everyone, I kinda feel like I need to explain my position as having no apparent allegiance could make it seem like I have no end goal and this is a million miles away from the truth. Like 2 and the OOA, I look towards preparing for the arrival of One. I want to help those who wish to Ascend since I cannot Ascend myself. I want to pave the way for those that will follow. So while we may have the same goal, I cannot get on board with the methods employed by the institute and/or our new gatekeeper. Murder? Fraud? Deception? Emotional manipulation? Not really my style…
As for BoS, they want to tear everything down. I agree with their stance that past and current behaviour shown by the OOA is abhorrent, but what do they offer in place of enlightenment? Once the OOA is destroyed, what then? Why not try to bring about change from within? My knowledge of BoS and their greater strategy is incredibly limited, I appreciate that. But this is how it seems to me right now.
So yeah, I’m not really Anti-Everyone. I am Pro-Community and, in theory, Pro-One. I’m just gonna carry on making friends and supporting those who need it whenever they need it and gathering the memories that will show those that follow how awesome you people truly are, regardless of which side you support.
August 3, 2016 at 8:42 am #17274
I heard this again recently and wanted to dedicate it to you guys. All of you. Not just BoS, not just OOA, every individual, our two friendly neighborhood gatekeepers included.
Everything you say here is recorded and remembered. You as an individual affect the whole. Screw Marxism. Each and every one of you means something to this experience and this community, whether you speak up every five minutes or every five days.
With all this side-declaring going on, this really hit home. Wish you all luck, and may you not need it.
August 8, 2016 at 7:51 am #17767
Due to personal differences, I have decided that for now I’m better as a free agent. I’m walking away from BOS. I’m leaning “Fuck Everything” but am open to any new, morally grey entity who is up for making things interesting.
August 8, 2016 at 7:55 am #17768
Just a friendly reminder that the OOA has donuts.
I wrestled with the decision like you, but chocolate glaze always wins in the end.
August 8, 2016 at 7:59 am #17769
August 8, 2016 at 8:11 am #17771
Donuts have calories. I am definitely anti-calories. And the OOA is definitely a dangerous cult.
However if the OOA invents a calorie free donut that won’t trigger migraines I will reconsider.
August 8, 2016 at 8:48 am #17775
@coryphella Megan! Welcome to neutrality! *hands you a cushion and a goody bag full of your fav foods*
August 8, 2016 at 8:55 am #17776
@blondiecamps – I doubt I’m really “neutral.” I’m definitely NOT OOA (unless they figure out the donut thing). Really, I’m more pro-chaos than anything else. Pro-keep things interesting.
That would be a messy bag, with lots of kheer, paneer, tikka masala, and ice cream.
August 8, 2016 at 9:00 am #17777
Rather than neutrality being a fence, I like to think of it as an expanse of land between two settlements. We’re all dotted throughout and can see each other but some are closer to each camp than others… that sounds like my kind of bag- yum!
August 8, 2016 at 9:50 am #17786
So, the OOA is North Korea, Sentinel is South Korea, and FE is the DMZ.
August 8, 2016 at 9:51 am #17787
FE is Norway.
August 8, 2016 at 8:05 am #17770
Mmmm doonnuuts. I love donuts. I don’t know how to dance though.
August 8, 2016 at 10:46 am #17788
I can teach you!
August 10, 2016 at 12:15 pm #18099
Well, it looks like *someone* discovered the little Easter Egg hidden in my video and it is time for me to come clean.
Team FE – it’s been fun… But I’ve fallen off the fence and in love with… BoS. Sometimes you don’t see how right something is until it is right there in front of your face…
And finally, I would like to make a public declaration, just in case there was any doubt:
I STAND WITH SENTINEL AND THE BOS

@lenize Hell, I know exactly where you are coming from. I started to feel a bit lost in the middle and I did a lot of soul searching. So I reached out and found that people were listening and did have the answers I was looking for. And I saw past the OOA bullcrap all on my own… But you have to make whatever choice is right for you. It’s YOUR _path. But don’t believe for a second that you are invisible to anyone.
August 10, 2016 at 12:42 pm #18109
August 10, 2016 at 3:40 pm #18142
I’m FE at this point.
August 10, 2016 at 5:32 pm #18147
OOA all the way.
August 10, 2016 at 6:57 pm #18152
Haha. You updated just for me! Thank you Kim.
August 12, 2016 at 5:46 pm #18360
I have felt for a while now that the OOA is not offering true enlightenment and I have just never liked the BoS (the organization) and their methods for trying to bring the OOA down (sorry all my BoS peeps still love all you guys). Now, after spending my whole day with Addison’s diary, I believe her words to hold truth, even if things were maybe edited to keep knowledge we are not ready to know yet from us, I don’t believe this detracts from the truth that is given therein.
I believe the OOA itself and even the powers above it has strayed from the true word of Anoch. They have become corrupt and is after money and power for themselves, hiding enligtenment and not being true believers (especially after the email @kingkill33 got) and Gatekeeper 4 realized this. She tried to get us back to the path of enlightenment, but perhaps when she was created, however that happens, the powers that be had messed with her already and she had some issues.
Her way of getting back to the truth of Anoch and enlightenment, at the end, seems to have been to start over with a clean slate, killing everyone. (she might even have killed you @electrichippo that day: “she will cleanse it all, everyone even those only witnesses”). That gave Addison no choice but to kill GKFour to save us all, or maybe even just to save Kim if she was planning on starting her killings during that meeting with GKIII! I still do not like or condone killing, but can understand why she made that decision. If you were given the choice to kill someone before they killed everyone you loved, are you sure you would choose differently.
I believe that Gatekeeper 2 is paving the way for ONE and that Anoch speaks through her to guide us to enlightenment (and Regent 7 is helping her from within the organization). The OOA and higher ups (clockmakers) do not want us to find true enlightenment and are glad when we defect to the BoS, why have they not done anything to keep that from happening? They might have even started or control the BoS!
@gatekeeper2 I feel I have a better understanding of why you had to do what you did and want to thank you for your actions and guidance with the lessons. If I can help in any way, please let me.
I stand with Gatekeeper 2 (and probably Regent 7 if he is on the side of the true enlightenment (which he seems to be))
OOG: Please don’t be too mean guys, there has been a lot of more negative discussions about stuff the last few days and I’m scared of being attacked for my IG beliefs by putting this out there. I have no problem with civil, and/or friendly discussions, but I am honestly a bit scared of being hurt because of this.
August 12, 2016 at 8:38 pm #18385
The most surprising thing for me today is the relative silence in regards to the journal of Addison Barrow. I would have thought her supporters as well as her critics would have been much more vocal.

OOG:HI everyone! @thegilded @mike @coryphella @electrichippo @mumumusings @111error @reaton @kasch @thebuz (Wish I could tag EVERYONE ’cause idk who’ll even see this) Since scare LA I have been catching up on everything that’s been going on here through My Haunt Life, the Timeline, Megan’s Timeline, blogs, social media and the forums. I want to THANK YOU all so much for writing everything down. You guys are all amazing and I feel like I’ve been reading one of the most interesting books where my favorite characters (all of you!) are actually real! Haha ^_^ so this is just a big hello and thank you ♡

i support those of grey moralities and people willing to do the things that must be done, but that people with more idealistic morals won’t accomplish. So I guess I’m more sympathetic to the side willing to go the distance.

Kim has been kind enough to compile a list of what she knows, if you have information that could better that list or help others see the truth I doubt very much that anyone would mind hearing your opinions or thoughts, even if they are wrong.
Come share them with us, and if you say anything about anyone that isn’t correct let them correct you here
August 1, 2016 at 9:58 am #16939
My list pretty much matches Kim’s so it would be interesting to see where I may have gone wrong…
August 1, 2016 at 10:02 am #16940
August 1, 2016 at 10:06 am #16941
That’s a good point, but I suspect that after his earlier declaration for the BoS (that got him kicked out of the Experience), he still feels allegiance to them but is wary of declaring for them again. Supporting III, who is allied with the BoS is a safe way of supporting the BoS that doesn’t risk him getting the boot again.
August 1, 2016 at 10:12 am #16943
Yea I saw that and figured it would be brought up. As it’s still unclear exactly who’s territory the forums are in, I’ve been careful about saying as much. But I figure it’s been a while and the forums are meant to be middle ground for all of us to speak to each other (even gatekeepers). I stand with BOS, I’ve said I stand with the last counted, only because the last counted is still on here. I stand with BOS with the hopes of a sort of 3 contingency plan is in play (which I would hope they have up their sleeve, they’re smart people, I’m sure they’ve thought of it). I hope that cleared it up, when I see and hear 3, I still think of all those people who are no longer with us. To me, it’s an enemy of enemy is my friend sort of deal going on, a means to end.
August 1, 2016 at 10:14 am #16944
Hmmm, well that seems odd as there have been others to declare that they stand with the BOS and have not been “booted”.
So as much as that may be true.. it seems an odd reason to hold back.
August 1, 2016 at 10:25 am #16946
Tbh I have never said that I stand with BOS, I’ve said I stand with the last counted. Some of this is for similar reasons – BOS *has* rejected people and I don’t feel like being rejected anymore; I also have tremendous respect for Kim and won’t join BOS unless she feels comfortable with me being a part of it. If they want me and I can be of use to them, awesome. In the meantime my allegiance is foremost for III. I’ve made my own decisions regarding his actions. I don’t believe he’s an enemy and currently feel that what he has said is in line with what I want. I haven’t heard anything from BOS about what they stand for or what they plan to do.
August 1, 2016 at 10:29 am #16947
The only two people who have gone for only BOS and not three are Kim and daela, Kim made the deal personally so I couldn’t see 3 getting upset with her about anything (that wouldn’t look to good) and daela has gone MIA from the forums. When I made the claims, three still had a heavy presence on the forums, I wasn’t about to say I stand with BOS but fuck three, that’s just not smart planning. I have spoken to Kim in private about my allegiance, and now that the list is up and three isn’t on here as much, I figured it wouldn’t be a bad time to clarify where I’m standing. I know where I stand, the people that I felt needed to know where I stand have known. But if you want to believe I have some kind of agenda and don’t want to believe me? Go right ahead.
August 1, 2016 at 10:37 am #16948
No man. Thats not it at all. Sorry if my reply to @thegilded came off that way. Wasn’t my intention.
I was meerly stating that it seemed an odd reason to hold back considering recent activity.
I had also had my curiosities about the motives for III’S actions within the “halls”. When he asked us to leave messages so that he could choose one of us to meet with him I stated that I was unsure as to his motives but thought perhaps he had done what he had to attempt to cleanse the corruption within the OOA. I told him I was willing to listen to any side of any story. As usual however, there was no clarification.

After speaking privately with Kim, I’m firmly III/BOS.
However if anyone can get me out of this airport and on a plane home my allegiance will be SOLELY theirs.
August 1, 2016 at 11:35 am #16958

Someone likes me? Well that’s a new experience
August 1, 2016 at 1:28 pm #16969
Well, shit. If everyone’s going public, then who am I to stay quiet?
There was only one “authority figure” that I loved and respected. One who raised me to Sentry, and one who I would actually follow. And I got to watch the newest Gatekeeper slit her throat. I was with 4. But now that she’s dead, maybe it’s time for something new.
The BoS has a point. Too many have lost their way, swallowed up by an organization that doesn’t care to teach them a damn thing. I still believe in seeking the light for both myself and others, but where once I thought that it was our role to teach others the Light of the Oracles, I am starting to believe that it’s time we show the Light of Freedom to those trapped: Addison and the others that the OOA is holding on to
I don’t like III, but maybe he’s got a point, too. She hated it, but with 4’s death I suppose I’m free to pull from popular culture when I say that it may be time to tear down everything they’ve built, so that from the ashes of their world we can build a better one.
August 1, 2016 at 1:39 pm #16970
Well, let’s see. I’m not sure about 2 as yet. Bluey Greeny makes a convincing argument about her injured appearance being a facade. Even so, though, I like the rhetoric thus far, and I like the actions to this point. I honestly am not the biggest fan of ANY of the proceedings of the OOA, however. I am not rescinding my discipleship willingly at this time, but there will need to be some action before I’m convinced.
III irritates me to an extent, but I find myself fond of him in another way. I like the operations of the BoS, and I like their levelheadedness, especially compared to their rivals at the Institute. I don’t want to pledge allegiance to Sentinel, because I’m not prepared to spurn the OOA, but at present, I am, unfortunately, stuck in the middle.

I respect your decision too but I’ll double down on what you say:
“support that which you built. You constructed this, not us. Always defend that which is yours.”
“The louder your voice, the more we will show you….”
“Blarg…I don’t like their message. I8m gonna run away and gonna join the leireus, errrrrr BOS. Listen, I get it, I do…Sentinel and BOS are cool. Like, real coooooool. They probably have neat little hackery things, wear all black…H-E- double hockey sticks, I bet they even smoke cool cigarettes and listen to HIP new music…and who doesn’t want to take down the MAN? How exciting. But what is the Sentinel besides a much proven EXIT? A void of nothing. Have they offered US anything other than the ability to deconstruct?”
“I am done…but, I am not complete…We will meet again.”
~four definitely was against twitter/facebook/etc/etc/etc but she had other things to say too. The last one I won’t forget.

Why the hostility?
I could reveal the contents of said box and other information to the community right now… I would just be kicked out of the whole experience. Don’t know about you… but that doesn’t exactly seem like the best way to go… for everyone involved with Tension Experience.
But sure… why not? I’ll feel special for the time being.
August 1, 2016 at 2:47 pm #16996
As I see it, you have a box now and are more that capable of opening it and sharing with us, just like it was intended at that party.
Your path is your own and anyone who tells you otherwise is playing you for a fool.
August 1, 2016 at 2:52 pm #17000
I don’t think I’m out of line thinking that you’re being snarky (read:hostile).
There wasn’t an option given except that if I reveal box before I’m supposed to the game is done for me.
Would you really be so selfish as to have me give up playing with you guys as opposed to literally waiting 3 days?

It was also proven that opening up the package on that day at the party wouldn’t have changed things, what happened happened because it was meant to happen.
August 1, 2016 at 3:05 pm #17005
The word used was not exiled.
And there is no reason to be rude, good sir. I understand your frustration that maybe there hasn’t been enough TENSION for you, but that doesn’t mean that anything need be taken out on the rest of the community.

Totally not getting involved in your cat fight here guys, but just wanted to say I had a load of fun imagining what’s in the box… I know I’m gonna be disappointed when it turns out not to be a head… So right now I’m enjoying the Schroedinger-type sitch we got going on…
