The Extraordinary

When I was very little, I was going to be a fire truck when I grew up. That didn't pan out. Later, I decided I would be the paleontologist who discovered an unknown ancient civilization. The marine biologist who figured out how to talk to dolphins. The first pop star to win a Pulitzer prize for her song lyrics. I wouldn't say it out loud, but all my life I really did believe I was destined for something out of the ordinary.

I was a smart kid. Didn't always get the highest grades, but I was pretty… awake. Still, by fourteen, I had figured out I probably wasn't going to be talking to dolphins. So, I settled on a less flashy kind of extraordinary. Maybe I wouldn’t do extraordinary things, but I would feel extraordinary feelings. Think extraordinary thoughts. Have extraordinary ideas and desires and insights. My inner life would be spectacular.

Three months ago I bought an All-Asia Air Pass because I was 22 and still waiting for the extraordinary to kick in.

*

Went to Zapata's last night, an expat hang out in Shanghai. I wanted to be able to speak English again for a little while. All around me, people were talking about how moved they were by the Great Wall; how peaceful they felt rowing a boat in Taoranting Park. Saying all the things I had thought were special and private and amazing. 5000 miles, and just as ordinary as I was back in San Francisco.

*

So I ditched Zapata's and stumbled into this Internet café. To be here with you when the countdown hit. You get it, at least. (I don't even try to explain about llovebees to most people these days. Not exactly something you can bring up with other backpackers, all eager to tell you how touristy your trip has been compared to their way more authentic experience.)

So I sat in this café with you. Watched the first reports come in. Fast and furious. And that's when I finally got it. Right here. This. You.

You are my extraordinary. Near strangers — brilliant, kind, loud, mean, methodical, wildly creative, above all passionate. I don't agree with all of you… no surprise, you hardly agree with one another. But your energy. This community.

By sheer fluke luck, this blog has become a way station for amazing, brilliant, compassionate, crazy people. A clearinghouse for an extraordinary phenomenon. And I don't mean the AI.

I get it now. And I'm here, I'm all in.

P.S. I'm posting a summary of what we've figured out so far in the sidebar. I'll keep updating it as we learn more.

It's great to hear from you again Dana. There has been tons of progress and we're all working hard on this.

It turns out the Axons are payphones and the operator from the site has been asking for it's name and a codeword from the page with the co-ordinates, we're working hard to answer all the calls to unlock the .wav files that are unlocked after 2 are answered correctly.

Janissary

The Janissaries (or janizaries; in Turkish: Yeniçeri, meaning New Troops) comprised infantry units that formed the Ottoman sultan's household troops and bodyguard. The force originated in the 14th century and disbanded in 1826.

Not a common name. So where did I hear it before?

i think the sound files are all going to fit together into one big story if we unscramble them once we have them all.

our_hoodlums and parasites have the same clatter of what sounds like eating utinsils in the background, just one has music and the other has chatter. i think they could be from the same event only about 15 minutes apart. they both even have the same weird zip sound in the intro.

i think once we get them all, we can put them in a certain order to tell us a story.

also i think that because there is a x/777 at the top, that we're going to have to do more than just visit these axons today or whenver we go to them. there's probably more events we're going to have to take part it. this is just the beginning, you know? i think more things will unfold and we'll be held over until the release of halo2.

Janissaries is a science fiction novel by Jerry Pournelle first published in 1979.

The book is about a group of aliens who come to earth at regular intervals, kidnap earth people and make them work as agricultural labourers in an extra-terrestrial civilization. They are made to cultivate plants which the aliens use as drugs. Although not used as soldiers, the captive and slave-like nature of their occupation is similar to the janissaries which is the probable explanation of the book title.

Does anyone know if there's a central place where we can see/post scripts of these files the Operator is sending out? I've transcribed all the ones available. I see that yes_or_no still leads to a 404 page.

Has anyone received any responses from the Sleeping Princess? Does anyone know how many votes it will take for her to answer a question?

A couple things: is the password for an axon the "name" of it's group from the ilb links page? Email your response to me if you like.

Did anyone notice that Margaret says she loves mystery novels? Appropriate. Also, if you stop the home page from loading all the way, you get this:

Authorized personnel can check rendezvous info here.

Unauthorized personnel should know
that I have full license to use any means to
protect the security of these transmissions.

I believe that punishing even minor transgressions
with shockingly excessive force is the best deterrent.
I am relentless, and I have absolutely no conscience
when it comes to executing my mission.

It seems the Durga link is hot, but the .wav file is unavailable. Maybe there are a few thousend people downloading it. Try waiting a minute.

Yo,
Check this link to bungie webcams:

Can anyone read what the 3rd image says---Its a "Halo 2 Secret Document."

Blogger Sevanar_Dirasol said...

Perhaps as we progress the security around the files is getting tighter. It seems to be something this system would do, and after so many people gaining access for so long today, whatever is transmitting these messages may have become aware of how big the crowd following it is. Maybe we'll have to do something more? Far-fetched, I know, but its a thought.

been watchin for a couple of weeks, but havent been talking much. feel like i kinda owe you guys since i've been entertaining myself at your expense. post some data regarding the times for the lousiana coordinates (30.189576 & -92.063092), and i'll do my best to get there and see what's up. looks to be somewhere in the lafayette area. also, the gps mapping site i'm using only allows 4 decimal places for coordinates. if possible, can someone please post a site with a locating system that is a little more accurate. thanks again ladies and gentlemen for making my otherwise boring work day a little more exciting.

Hey,in Durga, it sounds like the AI is about to show Jersey something, such as videos? Which could explain noises we heard before our_hoodlums and the other sounds.

the image in durga has more then a few lines text in it.

"question:
Something bad will happen."

Then it goes on at the bottom to be a note to dana.

"If the recipient is Dana,

does it sound like to anyone else that we are listening to a chip that is implanted in marines?

halo had several cutscenes where the master chief took a chip out of one of the marines and was able to play back the guy's previous events... obviously this isn't war driven, but it still has the same effect to it, including that garbled sound, which sounds like they are fast forwarding through events to the next sound bite.

Conclusions based on Durga.wav...

Durga is what Jersey is calling the AI he's talking to.
And, Jersey knows Jan.
And, Jan's dad used to be somebody else. A spy perhaps?


Things are starting to come together.

Dana, you greatly underestimate yourself. You are a master of the extraordinary. With out you this community is nothing, with you it has the power to turn the tide against this menace.

Don't doubt the courage you have shown just by being willing to stand, and relish in the fact that we will stand with you.

Ok, I've been sitting back, just reading and watching everything, but not it's just too exciting, I must be a part. Judging from what I've heard, some of the wav's sound like they are lie detectors at a police station. If this is true, it plays away from the suggested script of Halo 2 and more for the theory that ilovebees.com is involving an entirely new game from bungie, which takes place in the halo world/time. I don't know, just a thought I had.

In a side note, I plan to be at the wauwatosa, WI today at like 530 or whenever the time is so if any else will be there drop me a line, jackthebeanstalk@mac.com, and by the way, I call shotty for one of the phones.

If there's anyone reading this who's gone to the Phoenix location (it's doubtful, but hey) let me know. g3kg3k@gmail.com. And, no, I'm not just bragging about having a gmail invite.

The guy actually didn't get the answer, but the phone call is interesting. Sounds kinda creepy. The voice of Melissa is deffiently the same as the one in the .wav files on the site (The AI that Jersey is talking to which he named Durga)

I don't think the wav files are from any game (such as Halo 2) at all!

I agree i don't think the wavs involve halo 2 but in fact a completely new game from bungie. If so, this is a pretty sweet way to announce it. Also idk about that link to the bungie forums, it seems faked to me. I don't think anyone from bungie would jeopardize there job/break nondisclosure agreements just to leak a release date.
