Star Citizen - IFS or Intentional Flight System - theblindmanshandsout control prototype

I realise Star Citizen's all about the machine I'm driving, currently... but that's because Star Citizen is still suffering from the legacy of its narrative-game military-cousin, Squadron 42.

In S42, as it's abbreviated, the player flies the status-relative ship and shoots the shit that the game throws at him. The story-machine knows where you are and can offer you timer'd events to deal with. It's all basically scripted, even getting into and out of the cockpit of your various vehicles is cinematically rendered, barring a little A.I. to add flavoursome richness to any generally vanilla gaming curve.

Star Citizen is a SANDBOX of opportunity for the plucky freelancer i.e. a very different beast.

And why not push the player through that very different beast in a very different, and unified, way. Whether you're walking along in your panties or flying the biggest ship in the 'verse, it shouldn't feel any different. It should feel instinctive, "I w…

Star Citizen - ILM or Internal Lighting Model - too many fake Hollywood-pop lights

Before I get onto my lighting polemic, ID Tech 666 is used to power Doom 2016, but Star Citizen looks better ... where it fails is in the Attentnion To Detail, and I don't mean in the machinery and guns and world and stuff, "I mean the gaming sandbox," and the general functionality of the interactive world and the re-spawning never-die hyperspace-generated-everything nature.

While it might seem okay to translate first-person or story-based narrative into a MMO, it doesn't work that way. An MMO is a place where 'the player' generates the content. It's not a place where a player is led by the nose. CIG, Squadron42 is already doing that.

The dev-team should be going back in and ripping out the guts of Star Citizen to re-establish what it should actually allow as a SGE or Sandbox Game Engine. Real sandbox innovations like the first-implementation-of skeletal foot align that's recently made it into 3.1.2. Hopefully in the future this'll be expanded to…

Ancient Architects - Stonehenge - were the stones always there?

as explained in this video by the Ancient Architects youtube page, it seems possible that all the giant Sarsens and all the accompanying Bluestones of the world-famous Stonehenge monument were local to the vicinity of Salisbury Plain i.e. not transported for tens or hundreds of miles, respectively.

Star Citizen - persistence and spawning - the existential debate

Star Citizen, the (supposed) sandbox companion to the Squadron 42 story version of CIG's near-$200,000,000.00 crowd-funded space-flight planet-exloring privateer-empire endeavour, has a persistence element attached to it involving logouts and insurance and re-spawning and...

What does it really mean, this Persistence?
WARNING: this might seem picky (in the extreme) but it's not, it's a really valid argument about the difference between story-games and sandbox-games.

Let's go back to basics. In the Squadron 42 military-story variant, CIG can play it like a conventional narrative-driven product where re-spawning makes sense to 'keep the action flowing' after you die or your ship is destroyed. But they've never admitted to what spawning really means in a Persistence-Verse context. In fact, they've never even admitted that Star Citizen has anything to do with the Military Campaign in Squadron. It's like Star Citizen is completel…

Star Citizen - Door-based gameplay - What are you funding?

Dear Backers,
to be honest, I think Squadron 42's gonna be all right...

Squadron 42 (the narrative arm of the Star Citizen franchise) is 'what Chris Roberts was always about' iff we track his career through Freelancer, Wing Commander etc. i.e. a series of cutscenes wrapped around a flight dynamic.

That's what Squadron 42 is, and it should do well. If they get the first chapter out. If they get the following two chapters out. Players love to be hand-held through an inter-active product-arc.

The real problem, as I see it, for CIG or Cloud Imperium Games is their so-called sandbox-variation known as The Verse or Persistent Universe. Why? Because the scripted scene, be it getting in a cockpit, be it moving from space to atmosphere, be it having a gun swinging on a player's back... yes, these are all scripted events... come up against the one thing CIG forgot to resolve.

Door-based gameplay.

Whenever you allow a programmer to 'move the player through a door' that …

Brian Foerster - Ancient Egypt - ten to twelve foot mummies in the Cairo Museum?

until the evidence exudes from the Egyptian records office, this is all decorative speculation on the part of Brian Foerster stood beside 'normal height' sarcophagii on the first floor of the Cairo Museum.

Either these GIANT sarcophagii contain'd ten to twelve foot mummies, or they're just decorations with nothing inside them but structural bracing. Maybe someone out there already knows whether this is a bullshit story or not...

If geopolymerisation existed at one point back in history, when alabaster and granite and limestone could be made chemically as a kind of concrete, then all this talk of AHT or Ancient High Technology is no longer needed - you could cut these 'stones' with a length of wet rope when they were still in their 'wet' or 'unset' state.

Electric Universe - Peter Mungo Jupp - Comets and Asteroids are the same thing

this might comes as a surprise to those of you who professionally subscribe to the well-respected Accretion Disc of Solar and Planetary Creation hypothesis.

In the ADOSPC hypothesis, asteroids are the results of aeons of gravitational settling creating dirty balls of ice at the outer reaches of the solar system i.e. originating from the named Oort Cloud region. Electric Universe suggests that BOTH comets and asteroids are rocky boulders torn electrically from planets fully formed with stratographic layers, sand dunes and rubble.

These powerful electric rocks actually have a plasma-discharge effect as they pass the sun. I mean, this is hardly the 'gravitational model' of tiny rock sliding past nuclear furnace one would expect.

Ancient Egypt - Stephen Mehler - or rather Ancient Khemit, Land of Osiris

Ancient Egyptology has been annihiliated and re-purposed by decades of political manipulation.

Ancient Egypt, though you didn't know this, was a Matriarchal Society -- there were NO ANCIENT EGYPTIAN KINGS. The 'Temples' or High House we hear so much of are the PerAa or Mother's House, of the five types of Per -- PerAa doesn't mean Pharaoh. Skip to 00:24:00 if you're eager for that radical re-assessment.

Otherwise, watch Stephen Mehler explain it all to you, so that you'll (finally) understand how wrong Champoleon, and the Greek translators before him, was.

Mike Philbin - abstract art - site update

over the weekend, I updated the WIX-hosted Mike Philbin Abstract Art website: edited a few things out, shifted a few things around, added some new 2018 material, that kinda thing.

Electric Universe - Yamnaya people - proto-Saturnian-split date?

yes, this looks like Free Planet taking the Bible as a Historical Document...

The Electric Universe concept (ameliorated by David Talbott's research into the pictographs of ancient peoples around the world) suggests that the Sun might not be our original star. So, I was triple-excited to find out about the GIANT Yamnaya people (named Corded Ware people, because of their distinctive pottery) from the Causcasus mountains in Georgia near the Black Sea. And their migration into this part of western europe.

I'm so interested in these Yamnaya people because (iff the electric universe hypothesis of a proto-Saturnian origin star for Earth and other planets is valid) there should have been a MASSIVE INCREASE in the gravity of the planet once Earth disconnected from its red-dwarf parent and adopted an electrically stable resonant orbit of its new parent, our Sun. It's to do with electric gravity, but let's not dwell...

I'm interested because th…

Cambridgeshire 1,000 BC - Must Farm - Our very own Pompeii?

by that, I don't mean, "Bronze age Cambridgeshire suffered a volcano," but the level of preservation in this fenland homestead is comparable to Italy's famous frozen Roman city.

I've been waiting for a documentary about this site since I first heard about the initial dig back in 2015.

I love the way these Must Farm bronze long-knifes are very similar to those swords from Troy used by Achilles and Paris! Yeah, I know I'm delving wittingly into Wilson/Blackett's Brutus of Troy comes up to UK via the straits of Gibraltar back in 1400 BC territory but...  why not? Coelbren speaking too?

Electric Universe - The Atlantis Connection - Earth's Valles Marenaris.

so, I was listening to this thing about Atlantis, I know, right, I shouldn't right? But then I started looking at the mid-Atlantic place where there's NOTHING. I mean, there's nothing apart from a wiggling north-to-south TRENCH which we all know i.e. suspect, has something to do with oceanic stretch. Right? Vulcanism? Plate tectonics? Right?

But look closer at the image, in fact look right at the drop-offs at the western USA and eastern EU edges. Such a drop-off of SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET. Doesn't this look familiar to anyone who's followed my blog before, namely Mars' electric universe-gouged Valles Marineris. Those blunt tributaries and the steepness of the scalloped edges?

Are we looking at a Solon-recorded ELECTRIC UNIVERSE or THUNDERBOLT OF THE GODS event some 9,000 years before Plato's 560 BC rewriting of the 'Death of Atlantis' when 'that great empire' was cruelly eradicated because it was an unlucky anchor point for a global plasmatic …

Asteroid discoveries in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter 1980-2011

the red ones cross the Earth, but for me the better ones are the Greeks and Trojans placed 60 degrees either side of Jupiter on the far side of the 'martian' asteroid belt.

You'll notice that we're the third dot from the sun and most of the asteroidal discoveries are made with the sun behind Earth (the periodic white conical flashes through the growing-discovery system..

Ancient Egypt - Moulded concrete - what if this is true?

okay, so it's a really irritating editorial style... but, what if the ancient egyptians knew how to make CONCRETE from crushed rose granite and other pummelled stone?

This same 'concrete technology' has been witnessed all over the ancient world i.e. South America, also.

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH: here's some extra testimony from Professor Joseph Davidovits, who's been cracking on about (agglomerated) limestone and marble and granite i.e. CONCRETE, since 1979.

Levelling off a site is also easier with CONCRETE... you don't need spirit levels and technology of any sort... you just make a pit and pour in the mixture, and the mixture will AUTO-LEVEL.

Electric Universe - EYE OF THE SAHARA - an electric discharge feature?

look to Mars, dear reader...

Mars has a scar, a scar that runs one third of the way around its equator. It's called the Valles Marineris and it's a Grand Canyon-like structure with tightly scalloped edges may have been carved from the Martian surface by insanely brutal electric forces i.e. when Electric Worlds Collide'd, some time in the not-too-distant past. And by that I mean, "Not billions of years ago," but maybe hundreds of thousands of years ago, or more recently i.e. within recorded human history. Some strange lightshow in the sky an ancient human race might have recorded in cave art, whilst cowering from the electric storm.
The image (above) shows a DISTURBINGLY SIMILAR tightly rock cut, or scalloped, electric-discharge resonant feature in the west of the Sahara Desert here on Earth. It's called the Eye of the Sahara and has features of both Mars' Valles Marineris and Olympus Mons, the big electric blister three times higher than Everest. Resonan…

Jeremy Corbell - Patient Seventeen - not from this GALAXY

Patient Seventeen is out there; I'm not concerned how you see it, just see it.

In this rivetting documentary from film-maker Jeremy Corbell, a thing is pulled from a patient's leg by surgeon Dr Roger Leir r.i.p. and it contains a wierd hotch-potch of sometimes ultra-poisonous metals in isotopic ratios that are just 'not from this planet' nor (it seems) from this part of our galaxy.

Find it, and watch it now.

Tutankhamun - Tuthmose - where's the difference?

Buried in a woman's tomb?

this is almost brilliant.

EXTRA MEDIA for those who care about the debate:
one can apply the concept of GEOPOLYMER i.e. some weird sort of concrete, to make limestone and even marble blocks iff only one knew the method of manufacture of this material used to make potentially the casing stones of the pyramids and the enormously tight-fitting walls of certain Peruvian sites. Maybe this concrete-making was the southern-hemisphere trade-wind trade.

South American marijuana has been found in Ancient Egyptian mummification materials... so something was worth the trade.

This, might help...

Electrical Engineers - Electric Universe - Dark Matter and Dark Energy

it's about time Standard Cosmology and Astrophysical Scientists start investigating the Electric Universe, now.

Maybe the Electrical Engineers can help them see the REAL universe for what it is...

Bukkakeworld - Planet of the Owls - Tenth Anniversary Editions...

published in 2008 as trade paperbacks by Silverthought Press of N.Y., rights were returned to Chimericana Books a couple years after and re-editioned in new covers.

a book about YOU, the corporate lackey, the indentured, the subordinate. Stuck in a job you cannot stomach, under a manager you want to annihilate, in a corporation that wants to grind you into nothing more than human grease to lubricate its inhuman profit-making machine. 

Planet of the Owls:
Marcus (who works part-time at the falafel kiosk in town) awakens to find a giant black and white bird at his window. He's sure that's what he sees: a giant bird with feathers that throb with sinister portent.

2018, both books have been re-issued in 5" by 8" paperback with special TENTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION blue covers. Check out CreateSpace, Amazon and other online booksellers over the coming days and you'll see them there for sale. Go on, you know you're itching to...

Brien Foerster - Paracas elongated skulls of Peru - mitochondrial DNA results are in

about 3,000 years ago, elongated skull people from (wait for it) the Caucasus Mountains i.e. GEORGIA between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, made their way south to the Indian Ocean and then the Pacific Ocean and arrived on the coast of Peru.

They have very large eye sockets, no sagittal suture in the skull like Homo Sapiens i.e. modern man, different mother pelvis arrangment, and a strange blood supply network into the back of the skull. Mummified remains point to white skin and red hair.

Topara and Nazca are peoples associated with them.

Electric Saturn Adendum: the recent Cheddar Man DNA findings (from Cheshire in 10,000 B.C.) point to a dark haired, dark skinned, pale blue eyed human race at this time. If Homo Paracas is from 5,000 years later and has white skin and red hair, is this the transition period from Earth to pull away from a de-activated proto-Saturnian star neighbour as the sun captured it?

I thought we were in trouble for a second there, but it's all good....

Megalithomania - Howard Crowhurst - Nebra Sky Disc and location data

Nebra Sky Disc I'm surprised I haven't blog'd about this before, since I did read about it a long while ago.
Anyway, in this video Howard Crowhurst reveals his numerical/astronomical investigation into the 1,600 BC i.e. 3,600 years old, Nebra Sky Disc artefact. He highlights the functions of the 39 holes punched out around the disc's perimeter which hold the key to what might have been a 20-day month in ancient times.

When he starts to tie it all into The Maya and their calendar, be warned, it gets weird, weirder...

FURTHER VIEWING: additional discovery-locality-based research about the contested 'sky boat' or RIVER at the foot of the disc when looking to the SOUTH from the ancient 'church' or stellar observatory cose to Nebra where this plate was unearthed.

NB: I don't care about the following video's Planet X or Nibiru nonsense, just the geographical sighting data alone is worth showing.

Electric Universe - charge exchange reaction - outer planets of the solar system

Prior to starting today's blog, I'd like to note that, "Iff electric boundary layers in plasma sheaths of these star-forming Birkeland Currents actually exist," then it safely demonstrates how and where planets orbit their star. Plasma sheath layers = orbits, and should become more off-plane as the outer planets are allowed to orbit a 'fatter' orbit potential in the solar polar vector.

Q: can large electric fields power Jupiter's super-massive auroras?

...of the seven episodes out of a planned 'ten reasons the universe is electric' this might be the most important one yet... it really makes the case for An Electric Universe that modern science is SIMPLY IGNORING... at the moment.

Time to watch, again or for the first time,  David Talbott's 2013 lecture Exposing the Myths of Settled Science.

Russia Today - Jesse Ventura - The Day The Earth Stood Still

The Day The Earth Stood Still is about The Electric Universe... of course I hadn't realised this wehn I was a kid, but I saw the 1950s film just the other day and I was mesmerised by it. Especially when they 'turned off the electricity' as Klaatu explains what happened when 'nothing worked' for half an hour, as a demonstration of Gort's ingerited power.

Jesse Ventura also loves this film, hence this feature of a recent Russian Today episode of 'the world according to Jesse', starring Dr Steven Greer talking about the 'death of the oil dollar' and the implications of interstellar i.e. faster than light, travel.

Oh, and the assassinations of all those brave researchers who've tried to uncover such over the last seven decades... when the people find out what 'corporate government' might have done to retain the blackout on this news, they'll be angry. As they will when they find out what really happened about 9/11-manhattan, 7/7 -lon…

Electric Universe - HC Unit - rotating plasmoid found!

you all know I had this dream back in 1985 of water flowing down a constant slope past a spinning engine that (if overloaded) spat out excess water WITH the flow of water or AGAINST it. I always suspected I'd had a Kekule-like revelatory dream about an atomic model for hydrogen...

And I could never really come up with a physical model for this 'machine'. The WITH excess water was proton-ic, the AGAINST excess water was electron-ic. I surmised therefore that space was an ether or medium that sped towards these positively or negatively excessing Hertzan Chimera Units, as I called these machines, at the speed of light. Light reflecting some Tetris-like fill-in property of the universe. The neutron is just THE MACHINE spinning the flow with no excess flow.

But what is this flow?

Maybe Kristian Birkeland and his eponymous pairs of electric current that form a hyperactive plasmoid where they Z-PINCH to a focal point is the answer. Why am I convinced? Well, the excess product…

Wallace Thornhill - The A-Z of Electric Universe - forthcoming new book...

eleven years ago, (American mythologist) David Talbott and (Australian scientist) Wallace Thornhill brought out their seminal and eponymous book on the Electric Universe.

The thing about Wal and David's co-authored EU-book is it drew together mythology and science in a totally unique way that (iff valid-ified) will TOTALLY REWRITE how Science looks at fundamental issues like The Age of the Solar System, how it was formed, and what our Alien Sky might have looked like to early man - with illustrations peppered throughout written/carved history to back it up.
I just got word from Wal that (while this 2007-published book won't be updated for a more Electric Universe-friendly audience/academic community) he is working on a new book he's tentatively titled THE A-Z OF ELECTRIC UNIVERSE.

Excited as me? Not even possible, my friend....

Electric Universe - 2018 truths emerge - universe is electric
