Open letter to conspiracy community
Nick and I decided today to publicly announce in the near future that the Ong's Hat Project has now concluded. We will be contacting Peter L. Wilson as well and see if he'd like to make a statement. I think it would still make a good book from a cultural anthropology perspective, your call.
My program has finished running and I am being recalled from duty. I think we were successful in laying the groundwork for the coming change. The gateways are open now.
I am glad to finally be myself again: 7:37 PM PST.
PS: This is not a joke.

Hey, JM, HQ, Chaos Cowboys, and Taka-Ha-Terrans!
(Or is it Terra-Ha-Takas? *lol*)
Oh, well. . .
Anyhoo, it sounds like history in the making. Grab your ice chests and lawn chairs and get ready to see some fireworks!
Just last week after setting up my music composition system and amp / synth rack, I composed a new tune after finally being reunited with my gear after three years.
I haven't named it until now. I'll call it Tantric Dreams. It is based on, say, 1001 Arabian nights; magic carpets, genies and magic lamps, 'charmed' snakes coming out of baskets, you know, that sort of 'thang.'
It's in Cm and only has two chords: Cm and C#maj. After cutting the oboe lead part, it dawned on me that it is the same chord progression as what Jefferson Airplane used on White Rabbit. This tune, however, is very conducive to meditation. It's really 'trippy.'
I'll have to find some way to post it. I can't post it as a MIDI file because I use Roland's MPU-401 protocol and it will come out as just noise on a regular multimedia system. I can transcribe it to General MIDI, but I'll loose the special patches and sound effects that gets programmed into my system via SYS-EX commands. I can always cut a .WAV file, but it will have to be a shortened version. Oh well, I'll 'figger' something out.
Well, we definitely 'preciate the news and shall look forward to seeing the end phenomena to the I&OH saga. I guess that will be something to tell the grandkids! :)

Well after all this time reading info on I/OH I still have never read where it actually originated from. Who actually started the Incunabula concept and who first wrote of Ong's Hat and how did they hear about it?
Also what does Peter Lamborn Wilson aka Hakim Bey have to do with it?

That certainly indicates to me he had something to do with the I/OH saga from the beginning then. Indeed he may have been instrumental in its origin and could have started the Game alone or with others.

Not only that, old Joe or whoever didn't seem to "Fuck nature unprotected" in my book. Basically if that is the end of the whole Incunabula phenomenon then with the selling of the e-books, Joe is nothing more than a profitable Macroteleport. Offering nothing more than "art"! Disappointing...

It ain't the "end of the whole Incunabula phenomenon". I am still holding a few aces up my sleeves, anybody else holding cards who wants to continue playing the "game"? We could keep this "game" going forever. Hell, it will keep going by itself forever anyway.

I'm with ya. Alternate worlds are out there. What I think is being missed here is how the vortex influxes aether into space-time causing gravity. But what is moving in the vortex is consciousness - a baseline phenomena present throughout the universe.
The question is really how one breaks the light speed barrier and figures how to thus move matter from one light speed barrier (or dimension) to the next, as well as how to navigate outside space-time.
This may not require extra technology to pull off; it may be possible in body. Perhaps technologically speaking what is needed is a way to affect matter via sympathetic resonant vibration. What do ya think?

Interesting responses....I'm amazed...Parcifal still has a few "cards" up his sleeve; Sparky is still holding a pat hand; Djinn's looking for a dealer; Caustic Gnostic knows about alternative universes????? OK... tell me more.... GO Fish....(hehehe)
Hey, no matter what everyone's interpretation of the "official statement", the themes and science have a helluva lot of validity - I think EVERYONE here knows that which is why you are HERE and not joining in the chorus line elsewhere - and my efforts toward untangling the quantum entanglement question for me doesn't end with an 'announcement'. As Djinn probably knows (though I'm not trying to speak for ya, babe) there's a LOT going on beneath the surface and the "best" we can hope for from the recent exodus is that there won't be anymore disruption underfoot. (Jeez....I was hoping that until I got hit with all thse bugs...) The Majestic gamers will look for their clues and move on to the next level. The newbies and naysayers will point and laugh and pat themselves on the back that they "got it". (snicker) All that serves to clear the board - which is fine by me.
Djinn, you termed it very well: "..the current change" is upon us...and there's more to come.
If everyone wants to play another hand, I've found an unused chat room where we can all congregate and ask each other questions. I'm open to answering just about anything anyone wants to ask me (well...as long as we don't talk about feet, SPARKY!!) E-mail me and we'll coordinate a time and date and I'll tell you where it is.

Harla, I wasn't commenting on the science and saying that travel into other dimensions or times was an infeasability. I was just commenting on the "official statement". In fact this just helped to narrow down avenues of study. I don't have many cards to play myself but I know when to hold them and when to fold them so to speak. Hope the problems with your computer work out and on to the next enigma!
posted 8/17/01 5:47 PM
Absolutely agree, Rev. This narrows the field considerably, the wheat without the chaff so to speak. There are many "enigmas" which are still to be addressed. I hope the "company" remains the same. Thanks.

posted 8/17/01 7:49 PM
Been away from the computer for a few days so I had some catching up to do. Wow. Harla, I understand the need for caution on your part, but I think the greatest weapon we have right now is the truth, subjective though it may be. I think the Convergence board idea is a good one, and I hope it flourishes. What I don't care for is the encouragement of more secretive measures: more private boards, chat rooms, and all that. That's what the troublemakers want. More paranoia, more fingerpointing, etc. Keep them divided and suspicious of each other. Leave that to the Montauk crowd sez I, they're good at it! Let's bring it ALL out into the open, everything. I'm sure Denny has at least some safeguards in place to protect the board from unwanted or unwarranted behaviour, hacking included. More openness, less secrecy please. I could care less with what others think of that, naive as it sounds. Otherwise we're just running in circles while certain individuals laugh their asses off at us. Fuck that. No more prodding & poking the lab rats thank you very much!
posted 8/17/01 9:41 PM
Djinn (sigh - if you had ANY idea what lengths I had to go to just to make this post..) I totally understand what you are saying and you've misinterpreted my call for everyone to meet in the chat room. If no one has any problems, I'll post the URL and suggested date and time. The purpose IS for everyone to share their ideas. Apparently SOMEONE or some THING thinks I know something (what that might be, I have no f**king clue) since my system and my board has been under attack of late. I heard from Denny and he was exeriencing similar problems on his board. So, we decided to merge the two.
I'm NOT trying to sound mysterious and secretive. But, "something" is going on and I don't know if it's I&OH related or merely has to do with the themes we've been hitting hard lately. If you read the other discussion boards there's really little there except "chat" and lots of conspiracy theories - same ol' same ol' - but we've been addressing underlying issues which I haven't seen anywhere else. Is this relevant? I don't know. I also just read that someone absconded with the servers at David Icke's site. Hoax? (shoulder shrug) You tell me.

Harla, I hope the strangeness has calmed down a bit, also, I wasn't trying to obfuscate the problem by laying any blame trips on you. I'm just saying I don't think that such additional measures are warranted, we have the Convergence board now, & as Denny pointed out, we've been getting too fragmented of late. I think that while there certainly has been a great deal of investigative work being done here, other boards discussing related topics haven't been immune to the attacks either. What I'm saying is that there is a discernible pattern at work here. It's time to gather the wagons around and start implementing a little strategy.
posted 8/18/01 5:21 PM
Thanks, Djinn. I have observed that all the boards are being affected, as I mentioned in my post in the other thread.

Excuse me if I missed something. I'm an occasional lurker who peaks in and out of the Incunabula "culture" just to see what's new. I am puzzled by the Matheny "Official Statement" and the lack of commentary about it on this and other I&OH related sites. What intrigues me is how JM (or Mike Kelly) seems to blow it all off as a game or experiment and nobody seems upset about it. I realize that the subject has opened many doors of research into other esoteric subjects, but what is everyone's opinion on JM's little "Project"? What was he trying to achieve? Did he acheive it? Was it a creative money making scheme, or did it run deeper. I just find it interesting that the person who started a mini-subculture that spawned several message boards and web sites could make such a final statement without ruffling any feathers.
posted 8/20/01 11:42 PM
Mithras, I can't speak for anyone other than myself, but as far as I know Matheny did not write the original brochure. So he didn't start this thing, he is just the one that brought it to the internet. And I'm glad he did, otherwise I would have continued to have forgotten about the brochure. But I suppose he did start a "mini-subculture that spawned several message boards and web sites". I had held the original brochure, not a xeroxed copy, in my own hands many years ago and dismissed it as a hoax way back then. But why was it written and by whom? Matheny's announcement of course has not cleared this up. And since I live nearby Ong's Hat, I had heard stories about a "cult" while in high school and I remember reading about a raid on this cult in a small local newspaper. One year ago I came across the incunabula.org website. Prior to a year ago, I had no idea that the brochure I had read over a decade ago had been on the Internet all this time. During the last year I have been able to accurately remember many details about the story on the raid. I now know the date of the raid. The timing of the raid is very interesting. I believe I know where the rod and gun club is, the only place it could be. I still need more time to do more real research, the kind you can't do sitting at your computer screen. For example, I know there exists a newspaper story from a long time ago that I need to find and get a scan of, etc. These are just some of the "aces up my sleeves" I spoke of. When I can back up what I will say with evidence, then I will say it. There is no point in saying anything more than I have already said until then.
The Ong's Hat story is not just a cyber myth to me. It has involved me into it personally. I am the exact type of person the brochure was intended for, the one in a million person that would actually read the damned thing cover to cover. Sure, I suspected it was a hoax, but I read and remembered it anyway, and always wondered about it.
You see, it may very well be that the pamphlet was a hoax. But the person that wrote it must have had quite a bit of knowledge of the area and may have also heard of the raid that I heard of, and the cult that I heard of, and all the other things that I know about that the brochure hints at that I won't mention here, and used it as fodder for his fiction. Or maybe it is only disguised to look like fiction. Either way, I will eventually find out. So, you can see why Matheny's statement means so little to me.
posted 8/21/01 1:15 PM
"...the counterculture was in many respects popularized, updated, mass-produced surrealism. Where the surrealists had prized dreams, trance states and automatic writing as paths to the unconscious, the counterculture substituted psychedelic drugs and various modes of meditation. Indeed, surrealists like Rene Daumal, a poet who left the movement to experiment with hashish, study Gurdjieff, and learn Sanskrit (and whose novel Mount Analogue wass an obvious model for Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain), or even Artaud, who became immersed in Tarot, alchemy, Rosicrucianism, and peyote, were virtual proto-hippies. The more politically, aesthetically, and pharmaceutically radical elements of the counterculture shared the surrealists' belief that the transcendence of ego functions, the blurring of binary opposites a dream/daily life, work/leisure, social/political and the valorization of taboo practices could combine to change reality itself."
"I have brought you this far, and I have been your leader. Right here I'll take off the cap of authority, which was a crown of thorns for the person I remember myself to be. Far within me, where the memory of what I am is still unclouded, a little child is waking up and making an old man's mask weep. A little child looking for mother and father, looking with you for protection and help - protection from his pleasures and his dreams, and help in order to become what he is without imitating anyone."
