    No clue?!?! That’s what I was asking? Maybe the new Addison?

  • #22130

    I know Joe is en route.

    It was short, likely for a reason. That was an invitation. A “where” and a “who”.

    Hopefully we find out “what” and “why” shortly

    Ærra Gēola

    That’s a link to what Horace wrote AERRA GEOLA

    “Ærra Gēola, m.n: “First Yule” or “Before Yule”, i.e. December. (“ar-ruh yeh-o-luh”)”

  • #22159

    “Aerra geola” – We say similar breaks into Latin during Sam and the Tension 2 incursion during the III days. He often broke into Latin as well. Clockmakers certainly seem to have a tendency to fall back into ancient dead languages, as though they are more accustomed to speaking in them. Coupled with III’s implication that They have forgotten whether or not they can die, this is lending further credence to the theory that some of the higher ups are linked with things that are perhaps not natural.

    Michelle’s presence is confusing for me, though. Was she who we briefly saw at the end of Periscope? Presumably Samson was here as a sort of security the whole time, was Michelle as well? What, then, were her experiments?

    Were we the subjects…?

      Does she look familiar to anyone? If that was her at the end of the periscope, why would she be leaking this to us? Another experiment?

    • #22166

      These emails were 3 days ago, and it didn’t seem like she and the Clockmakers were seeing eye to eye. Perhaps she was recalled since then, didn’t like the meeting, then leaked to us?

    Further, December is a bit curious as well… Ascension is about to be over. Sunday is listed as “The culmination”. What, then, is going to be continuing into December?

    Is this confirmation that this isn’t over?

      Well he says it needs to be “rectified” by December. So maybe a deadline? But a deadline for what?

    • #22170

      That’s certainly a majorly interesting point. Everything up to this point was only talking about Ascension, nothing so far out as December.

      On a semi-related note, calling this the “Autumn of Sacrifice” certainly doesn’t bode well for Sunday, either…

      Is it possible we will meet Michelle on Sunday? I think we are going to come into contact with the higher ups for sure. Doesn’t look good for Samson or Addison. Are we going to witness Addison being broken again instead of sacrificed? Samson is under Michelle? Michelle is under the clockmakers? Samson assures that everything will be taken care of… goodness what are we going to witness and be a part of on Sunday!?!

    Another thing to think about is the Facebook post. This is the first time (that I remember) it being a command and having such urgency. Usually they just ask, but this time. Could Michelle be the one that posted that and knew she had limited time to get the info out? Even when Addison was on the run overseas and OSDM were hot on her heels, the posts were never like this.

  • #22172

    I think Michelle just gave a big “go fuck yourself” to the OSDM before going on the run. As for December, Horace also mentions it is “the autumn of sacrifice,” and then asks “whose will it be?” That’s my question: who is getting sacrificed?

    Also it seems like whatever experiments Michelle was leading were indeed a part of this social experiment, and with Sabrina/Addison coming out of her hypnosis or whatever Horace is speeding up the timeline?

    Finally, I wonder: where does Sabrina/Addison fit into all of this? Was she Michelle’s puppet? Horace’s? Is she now a true wild card for both of these factions? And if so, what do the Clockmakers intend to do to her?

      We’ve had mention before of the whole Ascension show being just that, a show with directors and actors and producers. Maybe that’s what Michelle’s experiment is referring to.

      Regarding Sabrina/Addison, the clockmaker is upset that her real name was revealed. It seems that reveal was never intended to happen, lending support to the idea that it’s the Ascension show that’s going out of control.

      BOS uncovered I thiiiiink almost everyone running the show back in July or so, whenever Scare LA was, thanks to a leak from Sentinel – can’t remember anyone named Michelle.

    I’m curious not about the time stamps on the email exchange itself, but rather the timestamp on the top of the second page. It’s for today, but at 3:17 pm… which isn’t here yet.

    What does this say about the origin of the drop? Maybe made by someone in a different time zone…?

    I find it interesting that the OSDM alludes to things deep in its ranks that have been staples of the OOA (Clockmakers, oracles, etc)…

    Following the theory that the OOA was all a made-up religion that masks something deeper, their theology sure seems to extend into the ranks of the OSDM.

    So if none of this is “real,” as we’ve been led to believe, then even the OSDM is a front for something else… A cover within a cover within a cover…

    Gah! Brain go hurt!

    This almost positively is a move by Michelle of defiance. Who else would that woman be? What would someone other than Michelle’s motives be (unless they are her underling, on assignment)?

    According to the emails, she is responsible for things going off course, and Samson seems to be the enforcer. Maybe Michelle was the creative (mind) force behind ASCENSION (the production). The production that is being put on by members of the COA- a division of the Institute (a conglomerate).

    The corporate side of the Institute – OSDM – seems to have given Michelle (a non-believer) the task of managing the event: Ascension.

    (BUSINESS) OSDM needs (Spiritual) COA membership/commitment up so they tell (business) Michelle to come up with a gimmick, so they can mine our data- allowing them to easily identify and select their prey/victims.

    Maybe Michelle hired Sabrina (the actress) to be a part of the event: Ascension.

    The (spiritual) COA and the OOA collude to overtake the event: Ascension via gatekeeper 4, 3, and 2.

    Sabrina is brainwashed by the helmet and begins to lose her sense of self. She starts to become her character slowly, until she believes she is Addison- then the Overseer. She flees with the sacred text.

    The OSDM regain control of the event: Ascension by kidnapping (as seen on THE ONE periscope)- trying to bring it back to their original goal- probably something involving fraud/identity theft.

    Ascension, the event, begins under the OSDM control and with rebel groups consistently undermining them.

    Addison starts to glitch and reveals her true identity as Sabrina Kern, causing the lines to blur even further.

    The COA/OOA, OSDM, and Clockmakers can’t seem to agree on what is truth (about Anoch), and what was the lie.

    Which came first? Ancoh or the business of Anoch? Did the faith spur the business or was the religion the means of business?

      Personally, I think Anoch is 100% a real supernatural being that is older than any of this, and the Clockmakers are bringing him/her/it back in December. No wonder the OSDM is terrified. This is not what they bargained for.

      So, just a thought here – have we been falsely superimposing a hierarchy onto a diagram that is intended to merely show connections? Context defines meaning. We bring to this diagram the expectations of an order that may not actually exist, or at least not operate in a way we can imagine. The circle seems to represent a limit of some sort, and it is incontrovertible that Anoch is quite singular, but the linearity with which the names are presented may merely reflect a convention of style more than a series of ascending degrees of importance. Until we know the proper context of this diagram, it seems presumptuous to assume we can properly understand its significance…

    I have a gut feeling that Michelle may be related to BOS. After Ascension began, the man we know as Sentinel went dark. We’re still not entirely sure (to my knowledge at least) what the structure is within the organization, as we were always on the same level.

    Myself and at least a few others have questioned the BOS relationship with the OOA and OSDM, and there’s always been a lingering theory that they’re directly related, possibly as two divisions of the same thing, or as a catcher for those who want to resist the OOA.

    Breaking down the rhetoric used when Horace references Michelle’s “division” we know it is a part of OSDM. Michelle has snark and is very obviously skeptical of what’s going on in regards to whatever Horace does as a Maker of the Clock.

    BOS has also been skeptical of what’s going on – Sentinel gave us advice going into The One event that there’s nothing mystical or magical or anything not directly grounded in reality inside those walls, that it’s all an illusion. I feel like the “precious few” is in regards to the dwindling numbers of those aligned with BOS.

    The scary part of these emails when reading this,for me, were two things

    1) how “yes sir” Samson is. If everyone had to turn their back when he walked in a room during Ascension, I can only imagine the kind of authority this Horace has. Someone like Samson, who has shown us the kind of power he has, to be metaphorically kneeling to this Clockmaker like this is concerning for what may happen if we are introduced to him on Sunday.
    2) Michelle speaks of threats. Is this BOS work? She speaks like how GK4 did with how she talks back, but she sounds like she’s more worried about some threats being made.

    Lastly, it’s odd that Samson has tried to shown people that this is all made up, yet this person who he is showing so much respect to clearly believes in Anoch. The language in his emails show this. If they are all working together he wouldn’t have to go on about scolding Michelle and “humble yourself under the watchful eye Anoch”, if they truly didn’t believe in the religious teachings. Horace and Michelle seem to be fighting about how they are executing some plan but also ideology.

    I put out queries to a friend who is an expert in arcana. Until then, a few quick Google thoughts:

    Dec 21-22, the night of the Winter Solstice, is an Illuminati Human Sacrifice night.

    The Mormons have High Councilors — a group of 12, like the Apostles of Christ — that are basically Presidents of each region.

      @izryn @sadako I don’t believe I heard Samson use the term “sir” when I saw them argue. And while The Suit had clearly come in to oversee (wah-wah) Samson, by no means did I see Samson display the kind of snap-to lapdog behavior we’re seeing in these emails.

      Horace seems to be someone with considerably more power — and the ability to intimidate.

      When I was in the interview room with Samson, the suit was standing behind him and to the side, and Samson turned to him and said “give me your phone” for me to make my phone call. It seemed more like the suit was Samson’s security/entourage than anything else.

    I don’t know if this means anything but Horus is known as a war god in certain Egyptian mythology and in Greek mythology there is a similar God type character known as Horus The Elder who is a God of light and “son of the truth”. The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection and royal power. Could the appearance of “Horace” symbolize the beginning of a war or that the truth will be revealed to all? The Celebration of Horus also takes place during the Winter Solstice, so this must be related somehow. Any thoughts?

      And thus we return again to Doctor Who in the Tom Baker era, “Pyramids of Mars”.

    The more and more all of this goes down, it seems like the people we know are just the lower rungs on a much taller ladder than originally thought.

    Samson will be “rectifying his mistake” on Sunday? Is that a threat towards @masterlock?

    Oh @samson… you have no idea the power you’re dealing with…

    @zannah, is that why everyone got up and turned their back in the white interview room? Or was that something else.

    Basically, that’s what happens when someone higher than you on the org chart enters the room…
