Are you there?
June 3, 2016 at 3:05 pm #9140
Good afternoon, Gatekeeper III.
June 3, 2016 at 3:06 pm #9142
June 3, 2016 at 3:07 pm #9144
Good afternoon gatekeeper 3
June 3, 2016 at 3:08 pm #9145
We are here, Gatekeeper, attentive and curious.

June 3, 2016 at 3:12 pm #9148
Why hello there, Gatekeeper III. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
June 3, 2016 at 3:13 pm #9149
It’s a pleasure, III. We’ve been so excited to meet you
June 3, 2016 at 3:14 pm #9150
Pleasure to meet you. Gate keeper four had some curious words about you, excited to see what she was speaking of.
June 3, 2016 at 3:35 pm #9157
June 3, 2016 at 3:42 pm #9159
June 3, 2016 at 3:44 pm #9161
Hello III. Four says you’re strange… but we like strange here.
June 3, 2016 at 3:48 pm #9163
Hi III, looking forward to your shift here.
June 3, 2016 at 4:35 pm #9181
Through conversations I just had with the Institute… There is a significant change in the air. III is not what any of them expected.
We should be ready for anything.
June 3, 2016 at 4:38 pm #9182
It almost makes it sound like they don’t have any control over 3 and that seems odd.
June 3, 2016 at 4:39 pm #9183
Hey @thebuz? Can you elaborate on “conversations”. Keeping in theme with today maybe there’s something they’ve said that is actually a clue? My motto now is that if Tension strictly says “don’t share this” then I don’t. Otherwise, it’s fair game.

Unfortunately it was about me redacting some info I posted so I can’t post screenshots.
They asked me to remove some information that was out of bounds.
To which I let them know I contacted a moderator to remove
They then said:
“Buz,I apologize, a lot of us are scrambling and playing catch up while we… adjust to him. I don’t see the correction. Am I missing something?”
When I asked if by him they meant III…
“I’m not going to say that. I will ask you this? Ever have one of those days where you start out and it’s one thing and then all of the sudden it’s a whole other thing you didn’t even- He hasn’t even said anything but you- can feel it. It’s different.”
June 3, 2016 at 4:49 pm #9194
I thought nothing was out of bounds…
June 3, 2016 at 4:40 pm #9185
I had an idea that whoever is above the gatekeepers, pretty much mold people into them. The gatekeepers only arrive when they have been fully molded and controlled by them… I feel like 3 may have broken that mold and let loose a little early…
June 5, 2016 at 10:12 am #9508
June 5, 2016 at 10:51 am #9519
I don’t really think so. 3 calls, and a few emails.
I was with Andrew when we got the letter but have only received one fb message asking me to remove information I posted. No calls or anything else.
June 5, 2016 at 11:25 am #9531
June 5, 2016 at 11:38 am #9533
Dude no worries!
Everyone has their own thing going. My unique experience has something to do with my name… So I got that going for me.
June 5, 2016 at 1:01 pm #9536
yeah, you’re parents had the right idea. There is definitely something to be said for having a unique name!
June 3, 2016 at 4:45 pm #9190
hello III, you have some big shoes to fill, we were quite fond of four.
June 3, 2016 at 5:04 pm #9197
Every one has their strengths and talents. I’m sure Gatekeeper III understands our fondness for Four. But let’s not be rude. We are joyful that you are among us, Gatekeeper III and no matter the example set by your predecessors will not compare you to them or hold you up to any standards. You are yourself.
June 3, 2016 at 7:07 pm #9223
are you saying I’m rude! how dare you! 😉
June 4, 2016 at 9:41 am #9296
I apologize. I did not mean to insinuate a breach of social etiquette. Actually I did. But as I avoid conflict like the plague…. I retract the rude comment. *backs away awkwardly*
June 4, 2016 at 9:48 am #9297
I might forgive you…or not…awkwardly
June 3, 2016 at 5:16 pm #9201
Good afternoon, III.
June 3, 2016 at 5:50 pm #9207
Hello III. We are chaos. Looking forward to meeting you.

you guys seem nice
June 4, 2016 at 2:11 pm #9333
So do you. Nicer than your predecessors, at least.
We are here awaiting your message, your lessons. Do you have any for us?
June 4, 2016 at 2:21 pm #9337
You’re welcome. Can we get you a coaster for your coffee?
June 4, 2016 at 2:32 pm #9339
(Just worried they may be in short supply over there)
June 4, 2016 at 3:35 pm #9355
I think what III is trying to say is he looks forward to meeting you all. As well as enlightening us with his knowledge.
June 4, 2016 at 3:44 pm #9360
June 4, 2016 at 3:52 pm #9366
June 4, 2016 at 3:54 pm #9367
Gone? Now how’d you do that?
June 4, 2016 at 4:36 pm #9389
If each Gatekeeper corresponds to a sense (Gatekeeper 5 – sight, Gatekeeper 4 – hearing)……………maybe Gatekeeper 3 ate him.
June 4, 2016 at 4:37 pm #9390
That would scare me!

June 4, 2016 at 3:58 pm #9371
So are Gatekeepers higher in rank than the Overseer?
June 4, 2016 at 4:00 pm #9372
June 4, 2016 at 4:01 pm #9373
June 4, 2016 at 4:11 pm #9378
“But Gatekeeper 3, you can’t just banish the overseer!”
“I did not like him”
June 4, 2016 at 4:15 pm #9383
This made me happy!
June 4, 2016 at 4:13 pm #9379
tired now goodnight
June 4, 2016 at 4:17 pm #9384
Guys, show some respect. He’s brand new, probably getting used to all of us and everything, trying to learn and remember our names. The first few days are always rough. There’s a lot of responsibility as a Gatekeeper. We’re so used to @gatekeeper4 at this point and we can’t assume everyone will be like her.
Sleep tight, I hope we hear more from you soon @gatekeeper3
June 4, 2016 at 4:19 pm #9386
Ok but I mean… Overseer will never talk to you or any of us again. Kind of bummer, I thought overseer was a stand up guy!
June 4, 2016 at 4:19 pm #9387
I don’t think anyone is being disrespectful, mostly we have questions but a joke now and then can’t be that bad.
June 4, 2016 at 4:21 pm #9388
Also, my helmet question may have sounded like a joke but I’m being serious. Gatekeeper 4 and Addison had said their heads hurt and we know about the helmet.
June 4, 2016 at 5:53 pm #9400
June 4, 2016 at 6:11 pm #9407
Hello and welcome to III.
June 5, 2016 at 6:56 am #9488
June 5, 2016 at 10:02 am #9504
III, a man of few words
I can dig it
June 5, 2016 at 12:19 pm #9535
June 7, 2016 at 7:46 pm #9792
III, may I ask why you’re asleep at 4:00 in the afternoon? Not a fan of the daylight? Interesting little factoid about you. Lovely to meet you by the way. Good morning, or…evening as it may be. Looking forward to your correspondence with us soon. Glory be.
June 14, 2016 at 4:36 pm #10397
@gatekeeper3 I was told by my, ummm, work associate, that although Four was advertised as chaos, in reality YOU are the true chaos. I also have heard that you came to us early, unplanned, unexpected by everyone, and now many are in a panic, unsure of what to do.

June 14, 2016 at 5:06 pm #10403
June 14, 2016 at 5:16 pm #10405
careful, remember the old adage about poking the sleeping gatekeepe…errrr, giant
June 14, 2016 at 5:27 pm #10406
You know me, Jake. When have I ever played by the conservative, cautious rules of play? Besides, I’m under protection of sorts.
June 14, 2016 at 6:50 pm #10417
I agree with you Kim. At the same time though, there is much uncertainty.
This is what I see;
He gave us the answers we sought to have answered. Im starting to think perhaps we asked the wrong questions.
We should have demanded to know what was happening to Addison. I feel we made selfish choices as to gain information rather than feel for our fellow man (in this case woman to be exact). I am not sure of the timeline, and im just winging this off the top of my head as usual. I dont think we were aware that Aleister was in danger of some sort of that time, only that he had been silenced. Should we have asked more questions about this?
We are ALL worried about these individuals as far as I have noted.
So as a group who is genuinely concerned for these two individuals.. why did we opt for the information rather than that which was already a common concern for flesh and blood?
The information we received was fitting, it showed how things always go… the road desired, and not the one born out of light. We all had an insatiable desire to know more information.
Addison said that she had something… also that she left something.. unless the details are being kept away from the forums, this has still not been found not released as of yet. Was this the information made available by choosing another path?
Maybe if we had asked for her location or what the hell was going on with Addison and AL/Overseer. Maybe why 4 left so soon or even better , what III’s motives were as everyone within the OOA was in a panic and afraid of him.
It was hard to see at the time as we believed that she was perhaps going through changes etc and there was NEVER before offered an opportunity such as this by the OOA. I feel that we chose unwisely.
Power over people, the repeating theme.
Maybe we could have seen Addison to safety with the right question.. stopped the madness that seems to continue within the OOA. The threat of sorts from III to AL.
I could be wrong but I do not think so.
A lesson learned I say.
We also voted to keep the information quiet when it was revealed.. this was for security reasons and a number of other excuses we made at the time.
Every time there were those that made the correct choices in my eyes..
I was not among them sadly. The group outweighed those that were screaming concern.
Another lesson learned.
Al graciously let Kim back onto the forums… Why oh why on earth would he do that? Kim is an outspoken loyalist to the BOS…
Sharing information was specifically stated by 4 as well as encouraged by the “teachers”.
So knowing we would share information on the forums would seem as though they have no concern about information getting into BOS hands?? would this not be a logical assumption based upon this knowledge? Perhaps this is because the light is the light no matter who’s eyes it shines upon?
Once again we are the experience…
Gatekeepers are higher on the chain.. but we did not know this at the time.
So now we are left with an insight into the history of thee OOA that in a metaphorical way.. depicts the decisions we made as a group.
This is a sad realization for me.
Lessons learned every day.. hindsight is 20/20 and regret is a waste of time.
I will let these events forge brighter decisions in the future. They will also encourage me to scream louder for what is right instead of what we desire.
Sorry for yet again another ridiculously long reply. Hah.
June 14, 2016 at 8:02 pm #10435
While I agree with some of what you’re saying Cody, I disagree that we asked the wrong questions. When all we have are questions, I don’t think there was a “wrong” question to ask.
We approached the selection of the questions in an extremely democratic way. Everyone had the ability to contribute and vote for the questions that they wanted. You can scream as loud as you want, but if we’re trying to maintain order and be fair to everyone, that won’t necessarily help the process.
Also, as we’ve discussed in other threads there’s no physical evidence that anyone has been harmed. We merely know that people are missing.
June 14, 2016 at 8:26 pm #10437
You are correct. The wording was off. There are only choices. Right and wrong is subjective.Thinking about it though.. I wish I had reflected more before making decisions.
We did handle it very democratically.
As any good Party knows though .. It all depends which side can sway the tide and win the people’s hearts,or at least make them look opuough a different perspective.
June 14, 2016 at 8:45 pm #10440
The decision we made was one asking for knowledge instead of an answer.
We could’ve asked for an answer about Addison, but what do you ask? What happened to her? Is she ok? What was she doing in those videos? And once asked, and let’s assume that question is answered, you’re assuming it would be answered in terms we understand.
Imagine the answer was just “she has taken her next step to enlightenment.” What does that even mean?
Instead we asked for and received materials to learn from. So when we do meet Addison next, we’ll have insight to understand what’s happening instead of being reactive and uninformed.
June 15, 2016 at 8:07 am #10453
I hear you addison. I had the same thoughts. If we asked where Addy was III could have said, “shes with 4 or shes in LA.
I just couldn’t help but feel (upon reflection of the events) that we could have helped people rather that further our knowledge.
I spoke off the top of my head, as I usually do. I reflected all night before responding to this.
Uninformed, yes. Are we all not Uninformed to some degree? Have you not yourself stated that you are only here to find out where Addison is?
I understand the point you were attempting to convey.
I took it as a lesson.
I was just thinking about how our actions have consequences, our choices form the experience.
How we are all worried about them and wish to help them.
I just couldn’t help but feel that we may have had the ability to do so and let it slip between our fingers.
While I now disagree with some of what I said, and the way some of it was worded, I still feel the main content of the message was quite important.
Thank you Addison for your constructive criticism.
June 14, 2016 at 4:41 pm #10400
should i be more curious than i am…
…because i like curious
June 14, 2016 at 7:18 pm #10428
Oooooooh III….Won’t you wake up and come play with us? Or at least say hello? Please?
June 14, 2016 at 7:37 pm #10434
Oh it starts with gentle pokes? he dosent even budge and keeps on snoring.
I have stirred the pot more often than not. I will do so again if necessary.. I would rather see everyone else stand up together however….
