Well, it's 4.10pm here in the UK and I've not noticed anything yet. I'm looking forward to seeing the URAS sattelite entry which I have just heard should be visible for us at about 9pm tonight.

What do you think Chaol means when he says 'Ecsys rules the show now'?

I am probably way off base but if the show is the representation, and the earth is the space (possibility) and the interaction is ????, then ecsys provides the rules (logic).

It's a new set of rules for perception? Dream rules??

Checking the newswires, the U.S. gubmint may start shutting down due to bickering again, and there's a broad selloff of everything at the moment - including gold, but no earthshattering kaboom. Nothing that would be called unexpected. I'm sure there are unhappy people who are getting margin calls, but that's happened before - and will happen again. Nothing special there.

No earthquakes, no tsunamis, no hurricanes, no false flag events, the sun's out, the weather's reasonable for this time of the year, if the 23rd is supposed to be special in some way, I'm not seeing it.

Thanks for that, AC.

Anyone noticing anything extra-ordinary in their dream world?

What I notice is I remember my dreams less than usual, which is disappointing, but I wake up with a strong FEELING that I've been busy, doing stuff with people.
The people feel important and so does what we are doing but I can't grasp it.

It will have to be replicated time and again to prove to you. But to some of us this was already known. Chaol is presenting ways to do this naturally. Technology is always a half ass replication of nature. Do you know how much energy is used/wasted to move these particles at these speeds and record the results. All to figure out what can be done already by simply using your mind. Science studies things from the outside in, lets be smarter and study from the inside out. A brain won't make much progress trying to understand how a brain works...

3.5 hours of september 23 2011 left here.

Today was an average friday afternoon. Nothing special at work. Nothing special on the road to and from it. Nothing special at home.

Dreams are nice as always. I'm traveling a lot, meeting people; I can remember them vividly. They are mostly not meaningful though, just nice to experience.

Weird, weird.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
I think the reason people, including Chaol, say that this is all an illusion is because we are fooling ourselves. Everything is artificial, we build property on top of existing beautiful nature to provide an illusion of a new beautiful environment.. then we say "O, this is beautiful" ILLUSION. We try to convince ourselves we are smarter, better than the next person when we are all the same, ILLUSION. We have created time, space, etc.. these are concepts ILLUSIONS. These illusions have been building ontop of 1 another for centuries to the point where we find it difficult to trace back to what is REAL. So we live in 1 big illusion that we've created for ourselves. Noone is really to blame, we just are taking the artificial life and lifestyle we created and BELIEVING in it. So we believe and KNOW nothing. If there was no money, gov't, laws, religions, houses.. nothing artificial to live by, what do you think our focus would be? We tire because of the resistance to what is real, we are hungry because we want to feed our material bodies to provide energy to do material work and gain material things. But outside of all that.. there is REALITY

Well, I used the genius method for a week straight. Which didn't feel much different that just being obsessed with something you want only this time it is constrained to a solid schedule and ritual.

I didn't find a shortcut to another dimension, the only thing I did notice that the more you think about someone the more you begin to act and look like that person.

I also started playing his acapella cd alot and basically everyone that heard it repetitively enough started to unconsciously make his sounds/gasps/moans and other idiosyncrasies to the point where it got on my nerves and I actually had to say, please stop making those noises.

So thats funny. Only I wonder how obsessing over a car for example would turn out.

Has anyone else tried the genius method for anything?

From this point forward, the general public in the US and other Westernized countries will begin to break down.

If we take a running tally of the day's events THUS FAR, I'm sure you'd say it was pretty significant if you look back in 5 years.

'Fragments' of my world are beginning to interact physically with your world. The US government is running to their secondary bunker systems (and others to their primary) and using the excuse of a falling satellite (now 2) as cover for what is happening.

A satellite that, conveniently, is bouncing all over the heads of 6 billion persons and will be a ready excuse for when my world, and 'fragments' thereof are more visible.

Expect many more 'broken satellite' announcements in the weeks to come.

Sooner or later they'd have to disrupt communications and air travel in order to keep up with the story.

Then there's the "alien" announcement and drama. Again, an excuse for when the magic of mostly-secret technology is displayed. The only UFOs are the ones of your own creation, as I've mentioned before.

Then there's the 'faster-than-light' drama that is unfolding to prepare you for their own amusing and constantly-malfunctioning technology that will still amaze most of you, starting to play out September 23.

Then there's the pretext for "World War 3", again announced September 23.

Do you see where this is going?

The world is changing rapidly at this point, from TODAY, and many of us have yet to realize it.

The day isn't over yet, though :)

Yes.. gold will still reach $23,000+ per ounce. This is because physical gold and paper gold will be priced differently. (Most of the 'gold' in the world is paper gold. If paper gold is priced at $1,500 an ounce, how much do you think real gold is worth?)

(Regarding my tone, of course it has changed. We don't experience time in the same way. Two years from the start of this thread is 2 years to you. It is, to me, a few hours and a few weeks and months and years and about 75 years simultaneously.)

Yeah, and others have warned that the paper gold and physical gold markets could start to separate. Looks like those people may be on to something. I never did take anything that was mailed to me or displayed on my computer screen too seriously and if they go away, well, I'm somewhat prepared.

I've noticed completed auctions that actually sold for 1oz Krugerrands on ebay are nowhere near where the quotes are on the kitco ticker for the past few days.

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe". Introduction to a new way of thinking.
I know on some of the other goldbug sites I visit, people have reported coin shop owners are suddenly unwilling to sell at current spot ticker prices - they're either "closed" for today or they just flat out won't sell.

If you go onto Ebay and look at completed and about-to-complete auctions for, say, 1oz Krugerrands, the spread between ticker and ebay has widened over the past few days to $150 - or more.

As far as paper gold goes, it takes the general trading public quite a while to figure simple things out. But you're right, if the public figures out that paper gold never ever turns into real gold, its worth will drop to near zero. I know taking delivery of a gold futures contract is like pulling teeth - they'd much rather settle with you for paper dollars than deliver a gold bar to you.

I dunno. The real crappy time for me was sitting on losses for all of 2005 - those dips don't look like much on the chart now, but that year tested my patience and discipline.
