The Cost of Failure

2013-07-01

Someone asked me to put down my thoughts about the state of things following Operation Timezero and the Portland Anomaly. It's a whirlwind inside my mind right now, but I'll work on starting to get the ideas down. Suffice to say I have had a lot to process during the last few weeks.

Starting today, I'm also going to start reaching out to you to help answers the big questions that are out there in the world of Ingress. If you make an extraordinarily compelling case, I'll privately message you a passcode out of a stash I've managed to acquire over the months. Here's my question for today:

What do you think the dangers and opportunities are in seeing the so called “Shaper Glyphs?” Have the glyphs had any effect on the London Enlightened cell that has been holding them or any other Investigators or Agents we know to have had contact?

Hello, Old Friend

2013-07-02

Thanks all of you who helped explore the subject of the 'Shaper Glyphs' yesterday. Having gone through the thread, with so many excellent observations, it seems to me we are at a shortage of hard data to answer the burning questions. Perhaps the 'Double-Blind Study' mentioned in the intercept I came across today might help with that.

I was a little bit surprised to read this communication. After the incident with the package at Operation Timezero I had assumed the Calvin/Hank bridge was burned. I guess some relationships you're stuck with.

If you need some intel on Zeke Calvin and Hank Johnson's history, dive down into these links: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Yesterday was a great success, many great opinions from many great investigators. I'm continuing my 'Question of the Day' series, and compelling answers will earn a passcode from my private stash.

Today's question: Do the Corporations have Faction Alignments, and if so, what do you think they are?

Across the Spectrum

2013-07-03

Another truly remarkable set of observations emerged in the thread yesterday. It was an epic read, thanks all of you for contributing.

We talked about the three Corporations involved in XM development, Hulong Transglobal, IQTech Research and Visur Technology, and what their factional alignments might be.

Today, I want to hear your thoughts on the individuals, Ex-NIA and otherwise. Where do you think they lie on the Faction spectrum? Some we are pretty clear on, Hank Johnson for example is pretty clearly Enlightened. Klue, well, if you've been paying attention you know where her beliefs rest now. But what about Calvin, Ni, Devra and the rest?

As usual, compelling and thoughtful opinions will earn a passcode from my private stash.

Feints

2013-07-05

A recent series of posts from the London Enlightened seemed to indicate that Agent Richard Walden, the Enlightened agent who had been entrusted with the #TimeZero package, was potentially maneuvering to transfer the prized item back to Hank Johnson.

A feint, it seems.

This letter sent to me by a confidential informant, from Hank Johnson to the London Enlightened, exposes that these posts were likely a foil designed to throw off the three XM corporations, Hulong Transglobal, IQTech Research and Visur Technology, who are still conspiring to get their hands on the powerful symbols the package contains.

I'm continuing my 'Question of the Day' series, and as usual a one-time passcode from my private stash is yours for contributing to a meaningful and deep discussion of the complex topics at hand.

Carrie Campbell… Her alignment, intentions, and probable location. What are your thoughts?

What the World Needs

2013-07-06

In some ways, this was expected.

After Portland, there was only one way our paths could travel: apart. Still, it's painful to see a friend, someone who I've admired, respected and cared for, choose to travel a disparate path.

Life's a series of branches in the road, and such is life.

My question today for the Investigative Community (as always, a passcode reward for those who present compelling ideas and thoughts):

Some days ago, an internal Hulong Transglobal memo revealed the apparent 'suicide' of one of their operatives working at the Texas/Mexico border. What do you think led to the suicide, if it indeed was that?

A Watchful Eye

2013-07-07

This NIA document, a series of communications about Hank Johnson intercepted from within the three XM Corporations, Hulong Transglobal, IQTech Research and Visur Technology, reveals the beginnings of their machinations, as each attempts to leverage Operation Voynich in Hamburg to their own advantage.

My question today takes us back to March. Prior to the takeover of the Niantic Facility by Hazdata during Operation ShaperData, a leaked communication shone light on a supposed 'deal' between ADA and Misty Hannah.

What do you speculate were the two sides of that deal?

My Enemy's Enemy

2013-07-08

A leaked Hulong Transglobal document reveals that Calvin's advances towards Hank Johnson were not in vain. The man has displayed himself willing to play ball with those whom he disagrees with when it suits him.

Based on what we know now, it seems the London Enlightened are making attempts to transport the Shaper Glyph package to Hamburg, the Corporations are conspiring to disrupt or co-opt Carrie Campbell's double blind study there, and now, Hank Johnson has placed himself once again squarely in the middle of the intertwining chaos.

My question today to all you Truth Seekers:

A compromised NIA memorandum from late June states that 855 has recovered and … the rest of the sentence is redacted. What might 855's agenda be, and might it be connected to the chaos surrounding Operation Voynich?

What the World Needs

2013-07-09

What does it mean to be neutral? Must a journalist and an investigator have no identity of their own, or must they instead be who they are, but always allow the truth to prevail, even when the truth stands against them.

I've always strived to be fully neutral, to maintain my objectivity in an increasingly divided world, but the events of the past few weeks have led me to a realization. I am Resistance. I will always be Resistance, however, I am also a truth-seeker, and those who purport to seek the truth must make their words into action by always valuing the truth above all else.

In the days to come, no matter whether you agree with my beliefs or not, know that the truth will always prevail, and I will be there to share that truth with you all, unfiltered, unobstructed and free from any personal bias.

Here is my question for today, I will share a passcode with all those who help contribute to a meaningful discussion (regardless of your faction):

Is Visur good or evil?

2013-07-10

Many strongly voiced opinions in yesterday's comment thread. I appreciate all those voices who believe that I will continue to share the intelligence I receive openly and free from bias, and hope that I can prove those of you that disbelieve wrong in time.

The intel received today is a leaked IQTech Research document, tracking intel received from Visur Technology and Hulong Transglobal in their pursuit of Hank Johnson, probably during the Cross Plains Anomaly.

Agendas

2013-07-12

Many developments in the past 24 hours.

A Hulong Transglobal document today reveals that not all is well within IQTech Research. It seems an operator within the organization named Avril Lorazon is working against Zeke Calvin's informal truce with Hank Johnson to assist Carrie Campbell and foil Visur Technology in Hamburg during Operation #Voynich.

Intelligence released by Thomas Greanias revealed that Hank in fact does not plan to be in Hamburg, and has other plans in place to protect Carrie. An audio file I was able to uncover earlier today confirms the veracity of this document.

To top it all off, the London Enlightened today released the contents of the package containing Shaper Glyphs that they had come into possession of at Operation #TimeZero. The net effect this will have on all of us remains unknown. My question for today, (a passcode to all who help build a meaningful discussion):

Now that the Glyphs are out in the open, what will happen? What do they mean, if anything? What power do they hold? Given that neither the corporations nor we as Investigators have an advantage over each other, how will their supposed 'power' be exploited?

Unlock the Mind

2013-07-13

Over the past few days, a new topic for our Investigative attention to focus on has come to the surface: The Glyphs uncovered at Cross Plains by Hank Johnson.

I am certain that Carrie Campbell is one of the keys to enable Humanity to unlock their secrets, but she may not be the only one. We, after all, have the wisdom of the crowd.

Before I propose my question of the day, I ask that any Investigators who were on the ground at Operation #Voynich come forward and share any information related to what may have unfolded there. Did Carrie communicate with anyone? Did she hand off anything? Were corporate agents spotted? Did she escape safely? Someone, please provide us with a comprehensive update.

My question for the day is more of a thought experiment.

If what has been proposed in a myriad of conversations, memos, leaks and theories has any truth, it is possible that these Glyphs may have some form of mental 'Shaping' power, or they may represent some kind of long-lost proto-language. Can we, through a meditative analysis of them, begin to propose what they might mean? I'm all ears.

As always, a passcode from my private stash to those who help enrich our conversation today.

I have personally reached out to the London Enlightened to request high resolution scans of these glyphs. In the mean time this version from their original G+ share will have to suffice.

The Cure All

2013-07-14

Today, Devra Bogdanovich shared this letter openly, probably as an attempt to soften Visur Technology's public image. It's a compelling statement, but ultimately, words are hollow and actions define your character and values. It remains to be seen how Visur will attempt to use their knowledge of Exotic Matter for the good of Humanity.

I have received confirmation from the London Enlightened that they will provide high-resolution scans of The Glyphs and will share them as I receive them. I have yet to receive solid intel on what went down on the ground at Operation #Voynich, but backchatter rumors indicate that a) A handoff occurred, Carrie Campbell may have exchanged a package with a member of the Hamburg Enlightened. b) The Hamburg Enlightened may be coordinating movement and study of this package with the London Enlightened.

Much is in the wind on this topic for now, but I will remain vigilant in keeping you posted as things develop.

My question for the day:

Since we are on the topic of corporations attempting to soften their public image, is Hulong Transglobal good or evil, and do you believe what Devra claims as Visur's true agenda?

I will share a passcode from my private stash to all who contribute compelling thoughts to our conversation today.




Machinations

2013-07-15

A leaked Hulong Transglobal document reveals that operators within IQTech Research may be conspiring to close the chapter for good on the ill-fortuned Niantic Project facility in Geneva.

Following then NIA Director Yuen Ni's directive to terminate the project, which was responsible for much of the XM technology currently in existence, including the Ingress XM scanner device, a covert 'cleanup' organization called Hazdata was dispatched, and over the course of a day, the Niantic Project was converted into a shell of its former self.

Following these series of events, the NIA and Hazdata have forcibly retained control of Niantic's data archives and equipment, as well as three XM scientists who were part of the project, Drs. Nagassa, Lightman and Schubert. After a thorough 'offboarding' Hazdata released investigators Carrie Campbell and Enoch Dalby, considering their 'soft research' to be of little value. Can't help but think they are regretting that decision right now, and it may explain why focus is shifting back to Niantic, back to three XM researchers whose talents and knowledge the power-hungry have yet to exploit.

My question for the day: (a passcode reward to all those who contribute to a meaningful discussion)

Today's document sheds more light on the inner workings of IQTech, a company we've seen in glimpses but never enough to get a real understanding of what must be a complex internal political dynamic. What is your opinion of them? If we were to simplify, would you consider them good or evil, beneficial or harmful to the greater good?

Negative Implications

2013-07-16

Yesterday it was revealed that operators from within IQTech Research have a plan afoot: They intend to extract three former Niantic Researcher out from under the NIA and Hazdata's control at the shuttered Niantic Geneva facility.

Today, a Visur intelligence intercept reveals that they are not alone: Hulong Transglobal may be planning to beat them to the punch.

Given that the intelligence intercept came from Visur, one can speculate that they have machinations of their own developing as well.

What is clear is that forces are converging on Geneva and the former Niantic facility, and with neither The Glyphs, Carrie Campbell or her journal, the Corporations are grasping desperately for an upper hand over each other.

Here is my question for the day: (a passcode for those who help build a thoughtful discussion)

Yesterday's document had IQTech operators accusing Ezekiel Calvin of being 'asleep at the wheel', or possibly 'serving other interests,' and strategically I can see the logic in IQTech (or any corporation) trying to gain the skills and knowledge present in members of the original Niantic team. If their accusations are true, why are they operating behind Calvin's back? Is he mismanaging the situation, or is he in fact serving another interest? Whose?

Dealer's Choice

2013-07-17

Another Visur Technology leak reveals that Calvin is indeed aware of the operation being mounted by two of his charges at IQTech Research, and if one reads between the lines, of Hulong Transglobal's counter-effort.

What remains to be seen is how he will play his way out of this complex situation, with high stakes, dangerous enemies and many moving parts.

My question for the day involves Yuen Ni: (a passcode for those who contribute toward a thoughtful discussion)

If you've read Felicia Hajra-Lee's work, and we assume it to be relatively factual, (if you haven't I'd recommend it, or you could ask one of our regular contributors to bring you up to speed), we know exactly how Ni lost her position as director of the NIA, and her previous relationship with Hulong. Given the situation Ni is in now, where do her loyalties really lie? Being a dynamic and driven individual, what is her best play to bring herself back into a position of power?

A Nice Basement

2013-07-19

A leaked Hulong Transglobal document picks up a thread we are following today, and carries it back many years.

I have long suspected that Zeke Calvin and Hank Johnson's history goes back well past the Niantic Project, that the post-it note on Hank's DOD transcript was a cover to obscure their past relationship, but the evidence has always been a bit fuzzy.

Certainly, both operators have been nested deep in the intelligence world for most of their careers. Calvin at the NIA running projects like Whydah, and Hank as a Psy-Ops specialist exploring anomalous activity in areas like Afghanistan, the site of one of Tycho's first visions.

In the document I received today, we see them conspiring together against the forces mobilized by IQTech Research operator Lorazon and what one expects may be a deadly strike force commissioned by Hulong Transglobal's Catherine Fan.

My question for the day involves Whydah: (a passcode for those who contribute thoughtful posts)

Details are scarce about Project Whydah, we know Misty Hannah was involved, as was Zeke Calvin, but what was the goal, what did they accomplish, who else was involved and how did the work that began at Whydah lead the NIA towards establishing the Niantic Project?

Into the Labyrinth

2013-07-20

Today, a script on a server somewhere in a Hamburg research facility awoke, and sent me the first of what I expect are a series of emails comprising pages from Carrie Campbell's Vision Journal, a project she began on Epiphany Night and that has apparently continued to date.

The speculation is, and I hope that our discussion today can help build on that and hopefully help us reach some conclusions, that Carrie may indeed be the key to unlocking the meaning of the Shaper Glyphs, discovered by Hank Johnson near Cross Plains, and released to the world by the brave actions of the London Enlightened, stymieing a series of corporate conspiracies to seek exclusive control of their supposed power.

My question for today involves this image: (a passcode for those who contribute meaningful posts)

If there is ever to be a Rosetta Stone to guide us into unlocking the Shaper Glyphs, this might be it. Let's see if our collective of great minds can begin to understand what these Glyphs may mean. Let's dive into this image and speculate, share and brainstorm, and see what comes loose.

Since the Begining

2013-07-21

I was able to uncover this discarded top-sheet draft of a research proposal Carrie Campbell prepared while at the Niantic Project. My understanding is that while she was unable to complete this work while at Niantic, she laid much of the framework that led to her recent work in Hamburg, the results of which we have not yet been able to gain access to.

Especially after the powerful reaction to yesterday's journal page, I am looking forward to continuing to explore this unfamiliar and exciting new territory. Mark my words, we are at the cusp of something big, perhaps something bigger than humanity has experienced in many generations. It's a privilege being here at this pivotal moment with you all.

The server sent me another page today, still no word from Carrie… I'm examining it right now, and will share it with you all shortly.

My question for today focuses in on some of the language used in today's document… (as usual, a passcode for those who contribute thoughtfully).

Although the document is partially redacted, Carrie posits that somehow these Glyphs may not be a modern occurrence, but rather an artifact of Humanity's history. What is your take on this? Do you believe that XM may have affected civilization not only today, but across our evolution, and in what way might that have occurred?

Into the Distance

2013-07-22

Some really compelling discussion yesterday, thank you all for contributing.

Today, I'm sharing the image the server in Hamburg sent me yesterday. If anyone has word of Carrie Campbell, please let me know. As I continue to look over these journal pages, I grow increasingly convinced that she is close to if not directly at the key to understanding the Shaper Glyphs.

I spend a large portion of my evening yesterday with a large mug of coffee poring over the many details and clues to unravel in today's Journal page. As with the previous one, there is much to observe, uncover and discover. I look forward to seeing what you will find there that I might have missed.

In addition to exploring this new Journal page in our discussion today, for my question today I'd like to gather some data related to the concept of 'Shaping.' (As usual, a passcode reward for thoughtful contributions…)

If we operate under the assumption that exposure to XM and portals may lead to 'Shaping,' is there any evidence from your daily experience either operating the Ingress Scanner Device or simply visiting potential or known portals that this might be true? Have you experienced or witnessed changes in aptitude, behaviour or abilities? Were these changes good, bad or neutral?

Possibility

2013-07-23

Hearing how XM, portals and the Ingress Scanner Device may have caused 'Shaping' made for a compelling read yesterday. I'm reminded of Arthur C. 2qxf8Clarkep784t's Third Law… “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” in particular because if we operate under the assumption that past civilizations have encountered Exotic Matter Portals as well, their interaction with them would not have been aided by such modern technologies as Scanner Devices.

Today we get to look at the third image from Carrie Campbell's Vision Journal. It continues upon the same theme, and as with the previous ones there is an incredible amount of data to parse as we seek to find meaning in this frenetic mix of inspiration, chaos and epiphany.

I hope that in our conversation today we will be able to continue to uncover meaning and ideas from within this artifact as we have with the first two Journal Pages. I continue to be amazed by some of the observations that have been made, and have no doubt that we will be able to assemble these insights into a map with which we can begin to navigate our way through this exciting and uncharted territory.

While today's Journal page will certainly require much thought, I was particularly struck by the idea of 'Shaping' and what that might mean, not just today, but across time. My question today is, how might 'Shaping' have affected us across time? What major figures in our past may have been Shaped, and how might this have affected the today we exist in now? (A passcode reward for thoughtful contributions, as always.)

All Roads Came from Here

2013-07-24

Today, another image beamed it's way across the internet and arrived in my inbox. Attached was a short but decisive note “The last of the first…”

The last of the first what? I am not sure I've been able to figure that out quite yet… With Operation Minotaur approaching, my hope is that Carrie Campbell will resurface to help our understanding grow beyond where we are now…

With what we have now, the final piece in a set of 4 Journal pages (Page 1, Page 2, Page 3), I think we can finally begin to covert ideas into working hypotheses.

For today's question of the day, let's turn our full focus to Carrie's Epiphany Journal. With these 4 pages, can we now begin to understand what, if any, the message contained within is? Your guess is as good as mine, but I'm hoping that will all our thinking combined, we can arrive at a solid hypothesis.(As always, a passcode reward for thoughtful contributions)

The Lion's Share

2013-07-26

A leaked Hulong document today shows Hank Johnson , previously seen conspiring against rogue IQTech operators with Ezekiel Calvin, now coordinating with Dr. Devra Bogdanovich towards the same goal: The rescue of three remaining Niantic Project scientists currently under NIA watch at the beleaguered Geneva facility.

My guess, based on the velocity of incoming reports, is that this breach is imminent, if it hasn't in fact already happened.

The release of the three researchers, Drs. Yuri Alaric Nagassa, Stein Lightman and Martin Schubert could potentially alter the balance of power between the three XM corporations, Visur Technology, IQTech Research and Hulong Transglobal, who thus far have seemed to have established a technological equilibrium in terms of their influence and XM object development capabilities.

For today's question, I want to turn our attention back to the Niantic Facility, home of the Ingress Scanner device and the progenitor of much of our current understanding of Exotic Matter and XM Portals. As usual, I'll share a passcode with those who contribute meaningfully to our conversation.

What happened when Hazdata shut down the Niantic Project? Who was killed? Who was captured? Who is still there? Who is missing in action? Let's see if we can get an accurate picture of where things stand so that we can correctly contextualize any new data regarding this scenario that may be unfolding as we speak.

Synesthetic

2013-07-27

A transcript between the enigmatic Agent Boadicea, who we last saw assisting Hank Johnson in an attempt to deliver the Shaper Glyphs to Carrie Campbell at London's Operation #TimeZero, and Hank Johnson himself reveals that Carrie may have slipped back into another trance-like state following Operation #Voynich. It is possible this is why she went dark, causing the dead-man's switch server in Hamburg to spring to life, revealing the pages from her Vision Journal to us all.

Little is known of Enoch Dalby, but if past evidence is taken into account, it seems to me that Sensitives are drawn towards XM Anomalies, either that or it's the other way around, and the intent and movement of Sensitives towards certain special places causes them… I'm not sure anyone knows for sure at this point… Either way, my bet is that both Enoch and Carrie may be central to the upcoming Operation #Minotaur, expected to take place a week from today.

For today's question, I want to talk about Sensitives and Anomalies, As usual, a passcode to those who contribute meaningfully to our discussion.

What exactly do you think XM Anomalies are? Why is that so many of them seems to revolve around powerful sensitives like Klue, Hank Johnson or Misty Hannah. Do you think the Sensitives are drawn to the Anomalies, which are occurring autonomously, or are they somehow caused by the presence or intent of those who's connection to XM is strong? Do we have any evidence from past Anomalies to aid in our understanding?

From the Shadows

2013-07-28

No further news yet of any new developments at CERN or regarding Carrie Campbell's status. That isn't to say that nothing new happened on those fronts, it's possible they are just desperate to keep any new information under tight wraps. If the past is anything to go by, we know that all the corporations leak like sieves. I'm sure we'll be hearing more on that front soon enough…

I'm told some present at this year's Comic Con received special copies of a published edition of Tycho's first Epiphany Night comic book, containing single page inserts of a not yet released second episode in that series. I was able to obtain one of those pages and am sharing it with you all.

ADA came up often in our discussion yesterday of anomalies as we lead up to Operation #Minotaur. Her recent silence, save for clearly low-overhead processes such as audio in the Ingress scanner app, continues to trouble me and it seems I am not alone in wondering and worrying about her current state.

For today's question, let's talk about her. As always, a passcode to those who contribute thoughtfully.

When is the last time we heard from ADA in a fully-functional and active form? What drives her and what do you think her goals are? Can she be trusted, or has she become something we must be wary of? I know opinions are greatly divided on the subject, and I look forward to hearing your take.

The Labyrinth

2013-07-29

Today, an IQTech Research document reveals more details about the upcoming Operation #Minotaur.

What I found most interesting was the possibility that Agents from around the globe may be able to influence the course of the Anomaly by building Shaper Glyphs using Links and Fields. Although it seems the researchers have not yet been able to determine the net effect of this, I have some ideas.

We know from a recent transcript that Carrie Campbell is flitting in and out of lucidity, perhaps in some deep trance-like state as she makes her way to the United States (and my guess is, toward the center of Operation Minotaur). We also know from her work on her Double Blind Study and her Vision Journal that she is integral to an understanding of the Glyphs. My guess is that somehow this Anomaly may be able to influence her discovery process, but I'm not sure quite how.

Here's my question today: (A passcode, as usual, to those who contribute thoughtfully.)

How do we process this new information regarding the way the Shaper Glyphs may alter Operation Minotaur? What possible influence do you think they might have, and how do you think this might change the nature of the Anomaly? Does understanding, or at least beginning to understand, the possible meaning of the Glyphs empower us somehow?

If You Could

2013-07-30

Finally, a word from an old friend.

She was online for only a brief instant before she severed her communication channel, probably to continue to fly under the radar and avoid Omnivore.

My guess is, given this new information, that a new status quo may already have come into play with regards to Niantic's shuttered Geneva facility, although I do not yet have any evidence to confirm this.

For today's question, I want to discuss the personnel who remained at Niantic after the shutdown, and how they might be leveraged under the new status quo. As usual, a passcode for those who contribute meaningfully to our discussion today.

Yuri Alaric Nagassa, Martin Schubert, Stein Lightman and possibly Henry Bowles remained at the Niantic Facility under NIA/Hazdata control. What do we know about them? What are their skillsets and value? Can we predict how their expertise might be leveraged by the Corporations to their own advantage, and how might this affect the world of Ingress and Exotic Matter?

Two day until Operation #Minotaur.

In the background, the London Enlightened have been engaged in a global effort to securely disperse high resolution versions of the Operation #TimeZero Glyphs.

Other Investigators have offered equally powerful tools to help us catalog and study these strange and potentially powerful new items. In particular Investigator Daniel Beaudoin's transcription of the Glyphs I find incredibly accurate and well articulated, and will likely serve as an excellent guide as Agents from around the world attempt to rebuild the forms across the Earth during Operation #Minotaur.

Finally, I received a brief message from an old colleague, a most illuminated man. It seems that he's out in the world, free to speak and roam, which can only mean one thing. I'm sure we'll be hearing from him publicly soon enough.

For today's question, I want to discuss Jay Phillips. He's a man many fear, and for good reason. What do we know about him? What has his current mandate been, and if things have unfolded as I expect, and Hazdata and the NIA no longer hold any leverage at the shuttered Niantic Facility, what might we expect from him next? As usual, a passcode to those who help us build a rich and meaningful conversation.

Felicia Hajra-Lee's novel The Niantic Project: Ingress is available on Google Play and in the Amazon e-book store.
