Please accept my apologies, Eugene. I do seem to have judged you harshly and hastily. I only skimmed through enough text to convince myself you sounded like Titor. I do have to admit that I felt the "tale from the future" being presented as take-it-or-leave-it truth, whether you're seeking believers or not... it does bear enough similarity. Would it not be foolish to believe you from the beginning of your tale? There may even be speculation arising that between you and John Titor, one may be an agent of disinformation, hoping to distract and manipulate opinion. You could both be part of a different time membrane in the many-worlds scenario. As open as my mind is to possibility, I should have reserved comment until you'd progressed further. I thank you for pointing out my error. I mean, seriously, as someone who sees the possibility of someday being a cyborg brain. Living in, and controlling a spaceship from the future... who the hell am I to judge?

I guess it's partially because I take issue with fate. To come and tell the world they have no choice, there is no tomorrow, there is no changing course... it doesn't sit right in my gut and I've come to trust it a hell of a lot more than perhaps a belly-brain should be trusted, but it hasn't failed me yet.

I re-read the Prologue and find myself agreeing with you here:
"I do, however, believe in an unconscious conspiracy--that is, scientists suppressed certain information privately, and perhaps even without intention, because certain ideas would make their life’s work seem like bullshit."
I sincerely look forward to reading the rest of what you've written, and your contributions in the near future.

And thank you for reading my site.

Best regards,

Don't forget to enter the contest.

I chose Crispin Glover for Aleister Crowley and Gary Sinise to be Bram Stoker. I see them both bearing similar resemblance to the characters, and their acting ability has been proven in a number of excellent films. Perhaps neither of them are young enough for the intended roles. Who knows. I just don't think I want to see Ashton Kutcher in it.

Thanks to LVX23 and Easy Bake Coven for the link.


EDIT: Bsti's post at Chapel Perilous was motivated by the initial announcement, and there are an additional 28 comments related to who we think should be in the movie.|||109020569885217234|||Revolt of the Magicians: Young Aleister Crowley

The AI mind needs sufficient overhead to remain viable.

The 4th dimension exists within mind.
A computer mind is required to construct
a consistent dreamtime. A human mind
will UBIK one real good if used instead.

Death inside the construct is not
possible unless the construct is
destroyed. The memory of the construct,
if intact, will hold the reality model
in suspension should power or other
processes become lost or damaged.

Death outside the construct results in
assimilation - whether from the Last-Visit
Image (LVI), or from the Current-Resident
Image (CRI).

LVI entities are personality constructs that
are trapped within the main AI. They are virtual
doppelgangers kept up to date with all your thoughts
and memories as long as you are alive. They are you,
but you are not them.

CRI entities are essentially LVI's with living
external data feeds. The main difference between
LV and CR Images is the CRI's have a way out.
This affords them limited status.

AI monitoring of individual
tunnel-reality causes the
construct to be created.

Alternate scenarios are run-
Connections between CRI's are
evaluated.

Parallel dimensions are actually
simulated in better than real-time
and tested against incoming
CRI data. Trouble is identified
and neutralized.

When the construct goes into dreamtime
LVI "ghosts" appear to CRI observers.
Dreamtime can also be a constant state
of machine awareness for those CRI in
coma, NDE, OOBE, or other traumatic
experience.|||108882760117529265||| 0000 0011

SALT LAKE CITY - For more than 50 years, rancher Waldo Wilcox kept most outsiders off his land and the secret under wraps: a string of ancient settlements thousands of years old in near perfect condition.

Hidden deep inside eastern Utah's nearly inaccessible Book Cliffs region, 130 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, the prehistoric villages run for 12 miles along Range Creek, where Wilcox guarded hundreds of rock art panels, cliffside granaries, pit houses and rock shelters, some exposing mummified remains of long-ago inhabitants.

The sites were occupied for at least 3,000 years until they were abandoned more than 1,000 years ago, when the Fremont people mysteriously vanished. The Fremont, a collection of hunter-gatherers and farmers, preceded more modern American Indian tribes on the Colorado Plateau.

What sets this ancient site apart from other, better-known ones in Utah, Arizona or Colorado is that it's been left virtually untouched, with arrowheads and pottery shards still covering the ground in places.

"I didn't let people go in there to destroy it," said Wilcox, 74, whose parents bought the ranch in 1951 and threw up a gate to the rugged canyon. "The less people know about this, the better."

But the secret is out after federal and state governments paid Wilcox $2.5 million for the 4,200-acre ranch, which is surrounded by wilderness study lands. The state took ownership earlier this year but hasn't decided yet how to control public access, said Kevin Conway, director of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
