I remember the moment depicted in the image as if it were yesterday. Hearing all the different languages and accents surrounding me induced a kind of hallucinatory vertigo that gave me the sensation I was spinning at the universal axis mundi as I turned around and around in that circular building. Surely this was just a precursor impression of similar vortexes imaginable for the temple mount in December, 2012?
Once, I implied that I found no evidence that Simon Shack actually created the September Clues series of videos. I wasn't knowledgeable at the time about the history of internet message board participation that preceded the release of his work in June of 2007. Someone who is knowledgeable, informed me that the fundamental insights into the principles of video fakery and no-plane theory were a public group effort. That primary record of an organic interpersonal rising awareness was part of the work "lost" when the 911movement.org message board disappeared, suddenly and without a trace, about the time "The Vicsim Report" was issued in October, 2009.
If there is a fault to "September Clues," it would be that the work fails to give credit to the half-dozen to a dozen pseudonymous men and women who participated in the unraveling of this basic cognitive knot in the perceptible tapestry of 9/11.
Recently, in a related board exchange, someone named 'Fred' expressed his revulsion at my work, saying he was not impressed by any legitimate research that came out from an 'insider' to the plot---the 'honey' in the 'pot' whose issuance entices the unwary into letting down their guard.
I know exactly how he feels. When I began researching the Pentagon attack in early 2006, the field was dominated by Aldo Marquis and Craig Ranke, the pair behind the badly named 'Citizen Investigation Team.' I can still recollect the mixture of gall and gratitude with which I greeted many of their contributions, still dripping with the exudate of some official file cabinet.
I don't worry that, upon reflection, 'Fred' will realize the difference between what I have contributed, and the work of people who came before me---say, Russell Pickering and Jim Hoffman. The 271 blogs I have published here since March 13, 2006 are, if nothing else, a record of a slow and painful awakening. If ever I was used as the conduit for an 'official' release, I was unwitting to the act. But to the Gods I owe everything.
And the question I once posed about Simon I must ask about his partner, Max Konrardy, the young man who posts under the name "hoi poloi.' Konrardy is the author of The Vicsim Report, the theoretical work that posits the victims of 9/11 were---for the most part, now---computer generated fictions. This finely edited 80-page thesis came upon the scene fully formed and sui genesis---or perhaps again, it is only I who lacks the knowledge of its beginnings. I think it fair to ask its author for a history of how he came to his understanding of the matter.
For me, my personal great awakening can be timestamped January 4, 2007, when I first published insights about the false nature of the narrative as it concerned a fake burn victim, in Brian Birdwell: How to Serve Man---although the actual insight was so shocking and uncomfortable that it came several months before I could begin to speak about it publicly. I would be curious for Max Konrardy to tell us the story of how he came to his analysis of the computer code underlying the CNN memorial web site.
For what goes up in this world, must come down, sooner or later.
