The second #Interitus Anomaly belongs to the Resistance.
In the midst of it all, +Susanna Moyer chases the breadcrumbs left by her father, further into the secrets of #Interitus.

Powermonger or Guru? The idea of +Roland Jarvis morphs from moment to moment. It's difficult to know how to perceive him.
What is the Ultimate? Is Jarvis' abstract wisdom a foil or a difficult truth? Each of us will have to decide that on our own. For my own part, the jury is still out.

38 Days Until My #Recursion
So who was trying to kill me? It’s really not a fair question. There are some things I did that haven’t gone public yet. But you can probably guess some of it. I never cease to be amazed by how much you know. Before this is over, I guess I’m going to have to write up an enemies list for my next #Recursion. I’ll know who to look out for.
I notice that I’m forgetting some things. Scrambling some things, already. I have to get it down fast. I have to re-order things. Wright might be able to help with that. Maybe Farlowe

+Roland Jarvis and Mazz's conversation continues.
That may be true, but there are things to fear here.
The futures lie before us, an array of consequence and actions. Each day, each Anomaly, some of the paths grow dimmer, until only one remains.
The next #Interitus Anomaly approaches, only a few days remain. Perhaps Jarvis' message will reach +Hank Johnson before then.
BREAKING: Dr. +Oliver Lynton-Wolfe has released the following statement regarding upcoming changes to the Ingress Scanner Client.
Interesting times are ahead…
Our work has just begun.
More chatter about +November Lima.
Who does it truly belong to?
What's its agenda?
Perhaps the Agents in Santa Fe will be able to get a closer look and find out.
As the Ishinomaki and Santa Fe XM #Interitus Anomalies approach, a message from +Klue S. surfaces.

+Hank Johnson shares more details about the sections of his newest work on NOMAD that aired in Yesterday's #IngressReport Raw Feed May.08.2014 .
I suspect that much will become clear as the Sante Fe #Interitus XM Anomaly unfolds.
T-33 days until #Recursion.
The subject matter is vital however. It is an interview with +Martin Schubert, one of the Niantic Project pioneers who isolated the properties of Portals and studied Anomalies. It should be interesting viewing.
I heartily encourage agents to post their own thoughts. We are all in this life together. None of us wants what ADA will bring, the destruction of all that Humanity has achieved, the #Interitus.

+Hank Johnson, on the brink of the #Interitus XM Anomaly in Santa Fe, shares a final message.
He is a man with few options, and the one thing we know of ADA to be absolutely true, is that she is always thinking many, many steps ahead.
I believe much rests on the Agents in Santa Fe and across the world today.
T-32 days to #Recursion .
ADA contacted me. She offered to preserve my memories, all the knowledge I have obtained in the last three years and to provide that back to me after the #Recursion .
I am still pondering this. I want to remain who I am, but I am worried about why she is offering to help.
She seems to believe my knowledge will help her in other ways. God help us if that is true.

Enlightened, congratulations and thank you.
As for you, the Resistance, I recognize your passion and your organization. You fought hard as well. But you fight for the wrong cause. ADA threatens to undermine everything we have achieved as a civilization.
On the road again. Our xm research seems to be pointing us towards Amarillo texas. Be on the look out.

As many of you know from last week's #IngressReport, +Hank Johnson has devoted some of his very limited time left to working on a NOMAD special on XM Anomalies.
It could be that Human interaction with the Portals during past XM Anomalies have been the markers on our historical path to today.
If so, perhaps this is a message to all of us: On our path into the future, each fork in the road is marked with an XM Anomaly: A chance for influence to sweep over us, or be swept away.

What's clear is that both +Hank Johnson and +Martin Schubert believe that the two are intertwined, closely, and that human destiny is shaped by the interaction between them.

Did +Oliver Lynton-Wolfe's allegiance ever truly lie with +Roland Jarvis, or was it always a facade?
These are desperate times for +Hank Johnson, but I hope he knows what he's doing.
Agents gathered in Ishinomaki, Santa Fe and across the world to take human destiny into their hands at #Interitus 03. +Klue S. faced an Enlightened surge in Japan, a wave which swept to the Americas, protecting +Hank Johnson from a threat, or was it an opportunity, from ADA. Emboldened by the return of the Enlightened, +Roland Jarvis sends a message.
This document came my way earlier today, but I didn't have the opportunity to examine it in detail until now…
That relationship is poised to change in a big way.
If ever there was a time to read between the lines, it's now, Investigators.
You'll see what I see, and what I see is turbulence on the horizon.
With Mazz's assistance, or perhaps as her hostage, +Oliver Lynton-Wolfe burns the bridge with +Roland Jarvis and escapes from his sea-side compound.
But we all know one thing, this far in. Oliver Lynton-Wolfe's first and foremost interest is usually Oliver Lynton-Wolfe.
A powerful performance by the Resistance, who captured #Interitus 04 with an incredible show of force at all three American Sites and in associated Cells across the world.

A recent discovery sent me looking for evidence.
It's a circumstantial connection, but there's a possibility, a strong one, that it's something more.

Sensitive, visionary author +Felicia Hajra-Lee has been writing again…
Had an impulse, sat down at the computer, and this emerged.
It was controllable. Except when there was a trigger like a surprise view of the ocean. Then it twinged back. He stuffed it down. He had to be crisp today.
He had no idea why a company like IQTECH was interested in him. He wasn’t an engineer. He wasn’t a scientist. He wasn’t anything that they said they were looking for on their website or on the interview parameters. So why him? They’d come after him with a big check, a commitment and a get out of jail free card for the last five units he needed for graduation.
Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
He’d never known what that meant. It either had to do with horse racing or the Trojan Horse. He’d have to google it. It was one of those phrases that had outlived its original meaning.
It didn’t matter. It worked. Of course, like all clichés and old heuristics, it had its opposite: ‘If it looks too good to be true, it usually is.’ But he pushed that back.
He went over what he knew about the Calvin guy he was meeting. He’d tried to do his research. Couldn’t dig up much past the corporate bio, but there were bits and pieces here and there. Apparently, Calvin had discovered Hank Johnson, when he was an obscure grad student, long before Nomad. Maybe Bobby would be the next Hank Johnson.
An unwanted thought snuck in through a ventilator shaft in his head. Was the truth going to come out? Only three people knew what happened on ‘the bad night’ and none of them would talk. It would mean jail and trials and extraditions and ruin. None of them would talk. Or would they? Would somebody get drunk or get religion or would something weird happen? The only way to make sure that wouldn’t happen would be to silence them. But he wasn’t going to do that.
Would the body bob up?
He stuffed it back down. Nobody was going to find out. Not until long after anything was prove-able. And it was murky anyway. To all of them, except maybe Bobby. And none of them could point searchers to a spot. She was gone. Wasn’t she? Maybe a tooth washes up. Can you identify a person from a tooth? And would anybody notice it, take it into the police and extract DNA. He imagined the chain of unlikely events. And then there would be a lot to prove.
Nobody was going to find a body. Hell, they couldn’t find an entire Boeing 777 in the ocean. Much less a girl who mixed the wrong stuff at a spring break party.
And the irony was that they hadn’t done anything wrong. At least Bobby hadn’t. He just had to make the decision. Do we go to the police or do we make the whole thing go away?
The Uber was stopped. He didn’t even feel it. He looked and saw IQTECH chiseled in the granite above the door of a retrofit DC building. The company couldn’t be ten years old, but they were trying to make their mark on immortality by chiseling their name in stone. Told Bobby a lot. A company that trades in the intangibles. Ideas. Ideas that become technology. Bits of code that he knew were slowly stockpiling themselves to the Singularity.
Of course, he didn’t know what the Singularity was. He’d heard ten definitions, but it was something about when humans and computers were the same.
He got out. It was frictionless. The ride was paid for invisibly somewhere from an office. He pulled out his wallet. The Sikh driving waved the cash away.
He smiled. Bobby flashed on the dead girl’s teeth. That was the image that stuck with him from the murky night on the Bahamas. The girl’s teeth. He didn’t remember her name. They never checked for stories about it on the internet. Local girl goes missing. No digital footprints were to lead back to that night.
“Who are you here to see?”
Bobby looked up. Somehow, despite the creepy thoughts about the teeth, Bobby had made it to the reception desk, which looked more like the command center from some ‘B’ thriller… Monitors, buttons, all stuff installed in the Post 911 security frenzy.
“I’ll tell them you’re here.”

The pursuit of #NL1331 reveals more mysteries.
+Susanna Moyer covers the #Interitus 04 Anomaly, which struck Melbourne, Brisbane and New Zealand, as well as Kansas City, Cheyenne and Sioux Falls last Saturday.
Susanna's journalistic eye turns back to examine the developments that have occurred with +Oliver Lynton-Wolfe, +Hank Johnson and +Devra Bogdanovich during the last week.
As for what lies next… Perhaps the time has come for the secrets behind the poisoned apple to be revealed….
Two forms of the Resistance Glyph have been discovered by Agents and Investigators.
+Stein Lightman, in his most recent post, proposes that the two Glyphs may represent alternative interpretations of Resistance ideology, an idea that's been floated before in these circles, and asks some interesting questions in the process.
Head to the post to read more…
In light of the recent developments with my former colleague, +Devra Bogdanovich, I returned to examine these two Glyphs.
Here is my hypothesis, and I say 'my' loosely as I know other Investigators have raised this theory on their own as well: These Glyphs represent two entirely different interpretations of Resistance ideology.
One of them represents those who seek to utilize Exotic Matter, the Portals and the Ordered Data Signal to further a human-centric cause. In practice, they choose to utilize the Ingress Scanner to build Resistance Portals, Links and Fields, using this tool for what they believe is the betterment of mankind.
The other represents a more fundamental view towards Exotic Matter and its manifestations, i.e. that XM is intrinsically problematic, dangerous, a threat to mankind and must be stopped. This interpretation would of course be in line with Dr. Bogdanovich's thinking.
As to which is which, I have my theories, but I would rather hear yours before offering my own opinion.
There are other things I am curious about as well:
Which of these two fundamental philosophies do you personally gravitate towards, and why?
Do the Enlightened, too, have a fundamental schism in the interpretation of their ideology? What is it?
I look forward to our discussion.
+Devra Bogdanovich responds to mass criticism of her leaked CDC memorandum discussing the state of the XM Inoculation program.
Recently, my internal CDC briefing on the state of the XM inoculation program was leaked to the public via the #IngressReport.
Secondly, the clear intention was to elicit irrational fear of the vaccine and obfuscate the threat XM poses to our species.
The threat is real. As I was among the first people exposed to mass doses of Exotic Matter, I can testify to its deleterious effects. My background in Quantum Biology places me in a unique position to understand the catastrophic and imminent danger posed by exposure to high levels of XM caused by its unfettered harvest through the XM scanner publicly distributed in the innocuous form of a game known as +Ingress.
As you are aware, multiple agencies and profit-driven corporations (+IQTech Research, +Visur Technology and +Hulong Transglobal) are funneling a massive amount of resources towards the weaponization and commercialization of XM and the Ordered Data Patterns it utilizes.
I could imagine a thousand scenarios to describe the threat we face, but I'll present you only one:
Imagine you could write a small program that you could inject directly into a person's brain
Imagine that you could deliver this program to billions of people without their consent or knowledge. Imagine then that, at a moments notice, you could activate this program and fundamentally change the nature of a person. You could potentially turn an honest person into a thief, a gentle person into something ferocious, a conservative into a progressive, whatever your program dictates.
Now, imagine you have this power, and you could sell it.
While I will grant that this has not yet happened, let me assure you that our research shows that this is possible. XM is the key to the human brain. XM is controlled by an intelligence of unknown origin.
Whatever you believe of Enlightenment, or perhaps even of the utility of XM as something that could preserve our humanity, ask yourself this: Is it worth the risk?
I am working to preserve the sanctity and sanity of our species.\\
Some days ago, +Stein Lightman asked whether an ideological divide existed within the Resistance, basing his argument on the existence of two variant Resistance Glyphs.
As with the Resistance, the Enlightened too have a variant Glyph expression.
Some proposed, on my previous thread, that perhaps the difference lies between those who believe Roland Jarvis vs. Hank Johnson represent the true face of the Faction, or perhaps that the differences are between those who embrace Enlightenment cautiously vs. enthusiastically.
A possibility, but personally I disagree. I am of the opinion that 'the great schism' that will divide the Enlightenment has not yet been discovered.
I believe that as we learn more of the nature of the Shapers, what they or it are, and what the Ordered Data Signal's true purpose and power is, a great divide will emerge.
Do you agree?
At the end of last week's #IngressReport, a familiar figure emerged. We know that man only as 'Azmati,' an associate of +Hank Johnson's from his military days.
In the old world, this would be when we clear a large table in the center of the room, open the filing cabinets and create a stack of intel to pore over. Over a tall cup of coffee or several, we'd drill down into the details of everything we know about Azmati in order to prepare ourselves for what's to come and answer the tricky questions.
I'm hoping to create the digital equivalent of that moment. This thread is the table. I call on all fellow Investigators: Open your filing cabinets. What do we know of Azmati, his relationship to Hank Johnson and his role in Hank's 'death?'
What documents have we uncovered thus far that enable us to see this picture in complete resolution?
Based on all this intel, what role might Azmati be playing in Hank's #Recursion?
A few frames of video, what seemed to be aerial footage of NL-1331 taken by a UAV, emerged some time ago in an #IngressReport.
Here's what nobody's saying but is on the fore of my mind:
NL-1331 may represent the beginning of a new era in XM research: The weaponization of Exotic Matter in a conventional form.
If that's the case, the arms race may be on the verge of going into overdrive…. Perhaps +Devra Bogdanovich's fears weren't so far off target…
From amidst a flow of energy and tone, enigmatic voices emerge, they tell our story. Within them are the excitement, tension and release and we experience as Agents.
More is coming, they tell me, and your voice could define the experience we hear next.
I eagerly await.
This week on the #IngressReport :
Across the world, Agents from both Factions are engaging in incredible acts of bravery, teamwork, commitment and idealism. We examine some of the major Sitreps published this month.
+Hulong Transglobal sources some critical intel related to the upcoming #Interitus Anomalies in Cincinnati and Santiago on June 7th.
+Stein Lightman, Shaper Language expert, contemplates possible Glyph forms that could represent +Hank Johnson's difficult predicament.
+Hank Johnson's #Recursion date approaches.
In thinking about his situation, I began to explore the idea that there may exist Glyphs that represent the kind of construct that he has become.
What I share here with you are not verifiable at this point, they are merely my theories based on an analysis of Shaper Language structure and a conceptual understanding of #Recursion and the nature of simulacra. (Thus I have not labelled them. They represent not a true Shaper Glyph, rather an attempt to predict possible future discoveries.)
What are your thoughts on these? Do you imagine other Glyph forms that could represent Hank's situation?
This time last year, Agents tapped into Ancient Power spots, building Links to Cross Plains, TX in order to help affect the outcome of an Exotic Matter Anomaly that was centered there.
It's been at the front of our minds that +Hank Johnson's #Recursion Day approaches. And given his relationship to Cross Plains, TX, home of the sensitive author Robert E. Howard, it's safe to assume that this connection may become active again.
The exact details are yet to emerge, but there's been increased chatter related to Cross Plains in the intel community this week, and that's usually a sign.
I suspect we'll be discovering, very soon, just how Cross Plains may be critical to Hank Johnson's future.
