Neom’s “The Line” – City of the Dead

Karen Hunt

The world is full of unanswered questions, beyond all limits or reason.”Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has a vision of utopia rising from the desert. It is called “Neom.” Neom combines the Greek word neos, meaning “new,” with mustaqbal, the Arabic word for “future.”

The Line is a city within Neom. It is literally just that—a line in the desert, stretching 170 kilometers (110 mi) long, 200 meters (660 ft) wide and 500 meters (1,600 ft) high. With an estimated 1 million residents, it will be 33 times the size of New York City. It will be the first city in the world with no streets and no cars, running completely on sustainable energy.

As its website boasts, Neom will be a “living laboratory, home to the brightest minds, dedicated to the sanctity of all life on earth.”

A living laboratory? Absolutely. The sky-high structure that allows the inhabitants to look out at the expanse of desert beyond will also be the structure that seals them in and allows the gods to observe them.

Hmm, what does that remind me of? I know, an ant farm.

Artificial intelligence will monitor the city and use predictive data.

Predictive data translates into predictive analytics, a branch of advanced analytics that makes predictions about future events, behaviors, and outcomes.

There will be no crime in The Line. No one will even dare to throw a dirty wrapper on the ground as their actions will immediately be known to those monitoring surveillance. In fact, data analytics will predict which citizens have a propensity toward littering—or any other deviant behavior—before those behaviors are even displayed.

Eric Siegel, a former Columbia University professor, tells us in his book, Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die:

Data embodies a priceless collection of experience from which to learn. Every medical procedure, credit application, Facebook post, movie recommendations, spammy e-mail, and purchase of any kind — each positive or negative outcome, each successful or failed event or transaction — is encoded as data and warehoused. As data piles up, we have ourselves a genuine gold rush. But data isn’t the gold — data in its raw form is boring crude. The gold is what’s discovered therein. With the new knowledge gained, prediction is possible.”

Renegades will be quickly weeded out and replaced with other more malleable lab rats until only the docile remain. If The Line is part of a grand laboratory, what sort of facilities will the rejected inhabit? No doubt other, more nightmarish laboratories where experiments can be conducted on such expendables.

MBS compares The Line to the pyramids. The Line, he promises, will be the greatest achievement of mankind. Or, rather, just like the Pharaohs of old, the greatest of his achievements.

I first saw the Pyramids in 1967, just a few days before I turned 11, on June 6th—the start of the 6 Day War. Nothing that I have seen since compares to those architectural wonders, built not only to defy tomb raiders but to defy death itself. And yet, along with the awe, I felt disgust.

Just as I felt when gazing up at the magnificence of a cathedral or a mosque. Men had built these structures to glorify God, or so they said. But in reality, it had been to glorify themselves. Every stone represented the blood, sweat and tears of the slaves who had no choice but to labor for the will of their masters. Why did it have to be that way?

Comparing The Line to the Pyramids seems perfect for the man who was “judged by US intelligence to have approved the gruesome murder and dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018,” not to mention torture, disappearances, violence and discrimination against women, and trafficking of persons.

The list of human rights offenses, according to the US Department of State’s 2020 Report on Human Rights Practices in Saudi Arabia is very long.

Of course, these accusations are hypocritical of the United States. Since Covid took over our lives—the greatest bid for power in the history of humanity—the US and other Western nations no longer try to hide their ever-growing list of human rights violations.

They claim it is for our own good, just as the powerful church and government officials did of old. The peasants are not capable of caring for themselves.

The experts who now insist that only they can interpret texts and we should trust them at the expense of our own intelligence, are no different from the powerful of old who did the exact same thing by insisting that only they had a direct line to God and ordinary folks needed to trust them that they “know best.”

Perhaps that’s why The Line can be billed as this utopia and most people don’t see the problem. People have become too used to giving in. Where everyone should resist cities like The Line, the mass psychosis and waves of menticide inflicted upon us over the past few years have prepared most citizens to walk into these massive prisons and happily lock the doors behind them.

1 million lost souls will be stuffed one on top of the other in this prototype City of the Dead, serving their masters who will never let them out from under a microscope.

I have a deep connection to the Egyptian spirit, having lived across the Nile from what was once Thebes, built in 3200 BC, and is now Luxor. Along with the nearby villages, the west bank of Luxor consists of a vast web of mortuary temples and ornate tombs hidden deep inside El Qurn mountain.

This is known as The City of the Dead, also known as the Valley of the Kings. It left a huge impression on me as a child, and I returned to live there as an adult for three years. I left Egypt about six months into the pandemic, an adventure I wrote about in my article for Egyptian Streets, Tales of Eclipse: the Lost (Foreign) Women of Luxor.

During the pandemic, all the tourists fled, just as they had done when I was a child, right before the 6 Day War. Riding my bike along empty village streets and then the long avenue leading to the Valley of the Kings, past the Colossi of Memnon, it felt as if I had traveled back to my long-gone childhood days.

How well I remembered our family pulling a mattress out on the balcony of the Winter Palace to escape the heat and falling asleep to the sound of wild dogs howling across the Nile.

Now, if it was close to sunset, the wild dogs came out of hiding and I had to sometimes beat them away with sticks as I raced by on my bike, my heart thumping in my chest. Perhaps they were really ifrits, guarding the tombs, who knows. It’s easy to have such thoughts among the tombs of the Pharaohs.

Ifrits are a type of powerful and cunning jinn, winged creatures of smoke and fire, who haunt ruins and torment and kill those who dare to disrespect them.

Only a handful of the tombs are open to the public. It is said there are many more still to be discovered. Walking on the sand of the west bank, I always had this incredible sense of wonder, knowing that beneath my feet lay treasures still to be discovered along with the rotted bodies of the dead who had hoped to take it all with them into the afterlife.

It is not unusual for villagers to find artifacts beneath the earth of their properties. These villagers are the descendants of the tomb raiders of old and they seldom reveal what they find to the authorities, knowing if they do so, they will be forced to give up their homes and likely be compensated a pittance for their findings.

And so, they keep their secrets, just as they have always done, funneling their findings into the still thriving black-market treasure business.

It seems the earthly gods never learn their lesson. They use and abuse the common folk, but as with the villagers of Luxor, it is usually the common folk who have the last laugh. The Pharaohs intermarried, thinking it kept them pure and strong when it only weakened them. They expended all their energy on building monuments and stuffing their tombs with riches, mummifying themselves so they could live forever.

None of this worked. Meanwhile, the people who had been enlisted to build the tombs and decorate them, defied the gods, refused to believe in the fearmongering stories of ifrits and robbed the tombs, growing richer than the Pharaohs and living longer in the process.

The Pharaohs are long-gone. But the villagers remain.

During the years I lived in Luxor, I heard many stories of magic and lost treasures. The villagers are fabulous storytellers. They will assure you that they believe their stories. But this is all a manipulation. They learned their magic from the best, the Pharaohs.

It is in their blood to surround you so completely with smoke and mirrors that all sense of reality disappears, and you are lost under a spell. Just like the stories we are now being told by our earthly gods and their mouthpiece, the media, it is impossible to tell where truth ends, and fantasy begins.

Luxor is a messy place. It is dirty, plagued by mosquitoes, and you must constantly navigate through the lies and attempts of the locals to cheat you out of every last penny you have. The west bank is notorious for this. It is filled with elderly foreign women who came for a holiday and never left, duped by local men who wooed them with love songs, convincing them to give over even their old age pensions.

These women live like ghosts, coming out after dark when the moon rises and haunting the cafes that hug the Nile.

Almost all the villas you see on the west bank have been built with the money of foreign women who become trapped there with no money left to get out.

They end up buried beneath the sands of St. Tawdros (El Mohareb’s) Monastery, joining the bones of all the others who dreamed of immortality and lost it to the trickery of the villagers and the ifrit.

For all of that, I love Luxor and the chaos of its streets. I prefer it to the perfect order of The Line any day. During the Covid hysteria, the villagers were not fooled for a minute. Nobody was going to wear a mask. Nobody was going to lock down. Life went on as usual. Even when the government made such orders, very few people obeyed them.

Chilling aboard a dahabiya

The villagers laughed at coronavirus. They joked that they were immune because they could even drink the polluted Nile water and never get sick. Children grow up playing in the sand among the dead, paying no attention to the flies crawling on their bodies. I was always covered in mosquito bites while their skin was smooth and unaffected.

I am sure there will be no mosquitoes in Neom. No flies either. How unsanitary and imperfect that would be! Do they think they can upset the balance of this planet so completely without dire consequences?

They promise to usher in a new era of the Internet of Bodies, where humanoids and Artificial Intelligence meld seamlessly into one gigantic organism. All personal data of the inhabitants, not just related to health, but related to credit scores, whether or not they are religious, if they’ve gone to a therapist, what they ate for dinner and how much they spent, I mean, anything and everything will be tracked and stored.

No part of their human bodies will escape its interference. Even the toilets will no doubt be connected to the Internet where they will monitor citizens’ waste using BioBot technology to determine what they eat, what drugs they take, and analyze their genetic material.

Through Nanobiotechnology the cell structures of these inhabitants will be reengineered to enable them to communicate with IoB devices. Whereas the God of the Bible spoke life into being, the gods of this world are creating the language of nanobiotechnology that will control each and every humanoid beneath them.

For the first time in our history, actual humans will be on a lower level and those who have “transcended” humanity will exist on a higher plane above the rest of us. But this is no different from how it has always been. Do earthly gods like MBS, Jeff Bezos, Klaus Schwab and others, really think they can pull it off this time when even the Pharaohs failed?

I left Luxor under dangerous circumstances, but I’d go back in a second, if I could. And who knows, maybe I will. If so, I’d find my way to The Rest Cafe, just opposite the forbidding El Qurn Mount, buy myself a Stella beer and listen to more spell-cast stories. One such story, I will never forget, told to me on a starry night when the moon hung full, and the dogs howled beneath it.

The current owner of The Rest is a descendent of Sheikh Hussein Abd el Rassuhl, a member of the Howard Carter expedition that excavated the tomb of Tutankhamun. He was a mere child at the time and acted as their water boy. It was this boy who all villagers agree led Carter to the right place to dig for the tomb.

As far back as the 13th century the inhabitants of Abd el Gourna had not only secretly mined for treasures from the tombs and sold them, but had built an entire village into the mountain, inhabiting even the tombs themselves. These people lived and breathed the mysteries of the City of the Dead. They became a dynasty of tomb raiders.

The greatest of them all were the Abd el Rasul brothers, Ahmed and Mohammed.

These brothers had an instinct, perhaps placed in them by the gods themselves, to discover the secrets hidden within the mountain. At night they would search for the tomb entrances by lamplight. The ancient Egyptians called this “Hy,” or “He who knows the secrets of the location of the tombs.”

It is said they drank of a potion left inside the tombs for the pharaohs to give them long lives and insights. This is why the curses that befell others never befell them.

In 1871 the brothers’ lives changed forever. One of their goats fell down a hole in the sand and disappeared. Cursing the loss of a goat, they climbed down after it and discovered Deir Al-Bahri, a vast tomb where priests from the 20th dynasty had buried 40 mummies along with thousands of papyri and other treasures hoping to hide them from ancient thieves.

The Abd el Rasul family told no one of their find and began discreetly selling off the treasures. But as more and more treasures appeared on the market in Cairo, word got out and speculation arose. The government sent the first Egyptian archeologist, Ahmed Pasha Kamal, to investigate. The police caught the brothers and tortured them. But no amount of torture could make the brothers reveal the location of the tombs.

After some months, Mohammed was released. But of Ahmed, nothing was ever heard of since.

When Mohammed was released, he made a deal with the government. In exchange for an enormous sum, he gave up the location of Deir Al-Bahri to Kamal. In fact, the brothers had argued about this before, Ahmed vowing never to give away the family secrets, while Mohammed had come to realize that their tomb raiding days were over, and it was time to reinvent themselves.

In return for this fabulous information, Mohammed became very wealthy, and that wealth was passed down through the generations. The Rest is not a tourist destination, in fact it seems the owners care nothing for tourists, which is unusual in Luxor. It’s whispered that beneath the cafe are untold treasures to be excavated but the family refuses to give up this land. Even more interesting, is that the government has not forced them to do so.

But what happened to Ahmed? Did one brother betray the other? Have his remains joined the millions of other bones still hidden within the City of the Dead?

Perhaps we will never know. Perhaps this story isn’t even true. These are the mysteries that tantalize us and keep us guessing. These are the mysteries that fuel our imaginations and bring excitement to our lives.

There will be no such mysteries in The Line. No excitement, no chaos. The mind of a renegade tomb raider like Rassuhl will be probed by AI, a microchip inserted, and all the secrets sucked out, leaving him bland and pliable.

The Line is still in the making while Thebes and now Luxor has existed for thousands of years. Can cities like The Line ever really replace cities like Luxor? If you happen to visit Luxor, be sure to stop in at The Rest Cafe. No doubt you will find the latest Rassuhl sitting on soft cushions like his father and his grandfather before him, smoking a cigarette and drinking inky black coffee, holding his secrets as tightly as ever.

Where would we be without such renegades? Like the tomb raiders of old, will they rise up from the ashes of The Line to overcome these earthly gods, and, in so doing, have the last laugh, yet again?

I certainly hope so.

Carrot emojis hide anti-vax posts on Facebook
By Zoe Kleinman
Technology editor
8 hours ago

The BBC has seen several groups, one with hundreds of thousands of members, in which the emoji appears in place of the word “vaccine”.

Facebook’s algorithms tend to focus on words rather than images.

The groups are being used to share unverified claims of people being either injured or killed by vaccines.

Once the BBC alerted Facebook’s parent company, Meta, the groups were removed.

“We have removed this group for violating our harmful misinformation policies and will review any other similar content in line with this policy. We continue to work closely with public health experts and the UK government [and the utterly contemptible BBC] to further tackle Covid vaccine misinformation,” the firm said in a statement. […]

The very headline “Carrot emojis hide anti-vax posts on Facebook” is brazenly shameless, not to mention sinister, especially at this late date. The entire rhetoric of using “anti-vaxxer” was a giveaway from the start with its blasé presupposition that The Vax was “the natural option” along with a total and very unscientific rejection of any criticism of the jabs. If a large number were not still bewitched by the pseudo-scientific cover of the terminology, this article’s appalling fascist tone would be unmistakable.

When people call me an antivaxxer I say no, I am a proud antivaxxer. When the FDA runs one honest longer term safety trial on a mandated childhood vaccine with an honest placebo group injected strictly with saline solution and no additives, and they turn out to be harmless, I might reconsider. However when Francis Collins, recently retired head of the NIH was asked in person by RFK Jr. and Del Bigtree when this would happen, he replied “Never.” The closest we have is an excellent retrospective analysis conducted by Paul Thomas MD pediatrician which indicated that unvaccinated children were hugely more healthy. The Washington State Medical board is now trying to pull his license for publishing this peer reviewed article. My other reply after this is that you can fix ignorant but you can’t fix stupid.

Every now and again they have theses repeated story’s told to us about theses magical places in the sands where the exclusive and chosen will leave in Harmony.

Last time when I was slightly younger (David Beckham and MK ultra mega sales and getting the younger gen/older gen to except tattoos & body piercing ) it was this exclusive resort in Dubai which was 6 stars and in the esoteric shape of a what ever.

Majority of the time its a loads of bollocks but the under line theme isnt.

People tend to follow their evil desires and they are encouraged to do so by the propaganda machine; ‘be yourself and enjoy’ until the machine tells them now it’s time to get locked down and injected with something they don’t need to know about. Then unleashed again to enjoy the pleasures this world has to offer until the next call to submission.
Desecrating ones body is not ‘body art’, it’s just desecreating one’s body. Like abortion is not a medical procedure, it’s killing a human life. The times of total inversion are here to stay.

Hubris always defeats itself in time…

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

There is, of course, the question: how much does the Intellect owe to instinctual repression ? Or maybe it is simply: the natural intellect becomes shaped by, distorted, is subverted to serve instinctual repression, which is why all Utopian ideas become dystopias when implemented ?

The experts who now insist that only they can interpret texts and we should trust them at the expense of our own intelligence, are no different from the powerful of old who did the exact same thing by insisting that only they had a direct line to God and ordinary folks needed to trust them that they “know best.”

Nothing has changed since the days when the parasite class panicked that the printing press made it inevitable that the masses would have to be taught to read and write and …. SHOCK HORROR! … would have direct access to e.g. the Bible and would therefore no longer need divinely ordained ministers to interpret those hallowed texts for them. Good God! The peasants would be able to see the words themselves and …. choke! …. think about them!

And now – as Neil Postman predicted (cf. The Disappearance of Childhood) there is a magnificent opportunity to reverse the print revolution. Back into those mud hits you scum!

I’m all in favour of the line as it would keep up to a million morons out of the way of normal people. Perhaps it would make a great old people’s home instead of a home for morons?

Question: how come the pharaohs adorned their tombs with decoration everywhere yet there is none of any kind in any of the Giza pyramids. Why go to all that trouble for a tomb they didn’t bother to decorate? Decoration was supposed to be a very big part of the soul passing over into the next world, according to the Egyptians.
IMO, they found the pyramids as is but didn’t know what to do with them apart from rob the stone.

Also some problems with the tomb of Tutankhamun, especially concerning the paint on the walls. Carter had been there for years without much success and his backer was getting desperate for his own attempt at immortality.

I haven’t read Graham Hancocks work but i am familiar with it. I more or less came to the conclusion on my own years ago after doing other research.

The way the pyramids are constructed suggests they operated as giant atmospheric water pumps. There used to be an inland sea, or a massive fresh water lake, just to the east of where the pyramids were built. The plateau is the highest natural point in the area.
Others have found pipes in and out of the structures from the many access points around the pyramids themselves but some distance from it. There is so much underground too which is being hidden from us.

Stating that Egyptians built the pyramids and then display the cooper tools they used is an insult IMO.

Cities like The Line, unfinished prisons, are what they want for all of us. They also want it to be ran by an AI with the assistance of crap in our brains. But, they avoid that topic!

For example, there’s an article by Gateway Pundit titled “The New Normal: Kids Myocarditis Awareness Commercial Running in New York State”.
I’ve mentioned this on here before, but let’s take a look at how many news stories have popped up recently that could be explained by a single patent, but it never gets mentioned:

Cited in Moderna patent 10703789 as an included technology:
WO2015/0030576: METHODS AND COMPOSITIONS FOR TARGETING AGENTS INTO AND ACROSS THE BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER
Examples of IRES sequences that can be used according to the invention include without limitation, those from picornaviruses (e.g. FMDV), pest viruses (CFFV), polio viruses (PV), encephalomyocarditis viruses (ECMV), foot-and-mouth disease viruses (FMDV), hepatitis C viruses (HCV), classical swine fever viruses (CSFV), murine leukemia virus (MLV), simian immune deficiency viruses (SIV) or cricket paralysis viruses (CrPV).

One patent included in the Moderna patent that accounts for the stories of Encephalitis, Polio in sewers, Hepatitis rising in kids, Foot and Mouth disease, lowered immunity, and of course, Myocarditis.

Yet, the conversation never includes the patents?

Its beyond irrational to think that highly educated Phd’s would avoid such a glaring topic. Also note the alarming context in which they are found: crossing the BBB!

That’s what they have planned: prison cities and crap in our heads.

Thinking of that, maybe we should also send our politicians to that great place. They also are bright minds who bladibla etcetera. And not to forget our philanthropists. All to Neom so that they can work towards sanctity.

And leave them there, like we send our garbage to Turkey and nuclear waste to the bottom of the sea.

Btw: Khashoggi was not murdered by… It was most likely a slap on the wrist on the clown prince or maybe not even that and just a story meant for us as another variant on who the devil is.

Khashoggi‘s body was never found (so technically it can’t be murder), for the simple that there was no-body. OffG reported on this at the time if I recall correctly. He was the invisible man at a time that we were not overwhelmed yet by the invisible virus.

No need for disgust.

If modern man were build the pyramids in the same way as was done way back at that time, then now of course it would be done to glorify himself, because modern man is generally atheistic and scoffs at the notion of spirit.

But the ancient Egyptians were incapable of such scoffing, because they could not see the world as we do today. The notion of self-consciousness had hardly been born, except perhaps among initiates in occult mystery sites, and people generally thought and acted only in greater or smaller groups.

It may be hard for us to imagine that today, since most of us think we are such special individuals, but recent events in our society must surely tell us that, generally speaking, we still have a long way to go before we can assert that we do not conform to one kind of ‘groupthink’ or another.

I mean, just look at those masks we have tolerated in our midst for two years – just look at the numbers and percentages of people who have allowed themselves to be duped into getting jabbed with god-knows-what substances in the name of what I call, ‘media science’…

If we multiply that human tendency exponentially, we will be closer to having an idea of what the pyramids meant to those who built them – an experience entirely different from that of Donald Trump when he builds a new palace, Elon Musk when he buys a solar system somewhere out there in another galaxy, or Bill Gates when he purchases America…

We should be in awe of what the pyramids signify, because they were the outer expression of the Egyptians’ own awe at the cosmos inasfar as they could grasp its scale and organization. And we should also be in awe of what the human spirit could already achieve outwardly at a time so remote from our own.

Disgust I reserve exclusively for our wretched modern manipulators, because the ignorance behind everything they touch makes it turn to shit.

There is much extremely strange about the pyramids that their apparent familiarity can obscure. The official narrative about how and why they were built doesn’t stand up to much inspection. That official narrative comes from the same places that have brought multiple other fake narratives.

That Saudi city looks rather like the city in ‘Logan’s Run’. It was also the Saudis who brought us Sofia, the fake A.I. named after a Gnostic goddess. The insane dynasty that rules Saudi Arabia was put there by British intelligence with Kim Philby’s dad playing a leading role. It’s the only country in the world named as belonging to a particular family.

Meanwhile, that bastard Putin plans war on the penguins:
https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1619039/putin-antarctica-russia-china-plans-mine-southern-continent-resources
Is there no end to his evil? Of course if we’re as short of resources as we’re told and if the Antarctic has the riches Admiral Byrd said after Operation High Jump, then it kinda makes sense. Those are two big ‘ifs’ though. The conditions may be tough – but remember they claim to be seriously planning to mine asteroids and Antarctica must be easier than that.

Oh, and the female Clintons have been to clown school:

The African Cairo ( literally means The Camp of Mars) is ancient, vastly beyond the years ascribed to it – which are mainly applied to give credibility to a book that is touted as real history and sold as such…

And… as Admiral Byrd discovered: Antarctica is not a continent, it is a vast land that encircles the seas on which our islands float. Beyond the ice walls are forests, rivers, lakes and other people’s…

Perhaps it is interesting to compare our flat encircled world to that of the Line… we are being observed from the outside by those who are us and not us…

As David Bowie said:

“Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh, man, look at those cavemen go

Sofia is a common Greek name that means “wisdom” and the “Gnostics” were wiped out a long time ago. Freemasonry was not wiped out, but freemasonry is not “gnostic”. The Saudis are extremely unlikely to be referring to “gnostic” teachings.

The term “gnostic” was coined by Christians to describe a variety of esoteric teachers with varying degrees of difference from judeo-christian dogma. There were no jokes among those folks and the idea that the “gnostics” regarded the material world as evil is also a judeo-christian meme propagated by theologians, that is more descriptive of self-flagellating Jesuits.

In short, your comment is confused.

and in germany they are still tolerating masks on all buses and trains but funny enough not in the airports. iv just spent a week there visiting family who iv not seen in two years, it was emotional to say the least. so my first journey by train i was completely ignored by the ticket inspector, for not muzzling up, twice in a one hour journey as his way of dealing with me which is fine as i never buy a ticket unless charged on the train. i got threatened with the polizei the next time i got on a train without a nappy, so i got off and got on the next train which fortunately did not have a ticket inspector. the next train i took on my way home to the airport did not have an inspector but a very annoyed soldier giving me dirty looks but did not say anything as i made a naked bar last 40 mins which was partly filmed by some stasi woman pretending to film the scenery. oh the games they make us play in order to keep our integrity and sanity

Oh damn, Ween, one of the best live bands I ever saw. Gene, Dean and Mean. The Mollusc is a briliant, funny, loving parody of prog and tribute to it.

Their country album is still one of my favourites.

They could do anything, though. Here’s their Tex-Mex answer to ‘The Green, Green Grass of Home’:

“…with poison

The idea of the Panopticon dies hard, the notion of a regimented space where everyone and everything is observed and rules are rigidly enforced. In real life control is exercised more subtly — for example, why go to the trouble of forcing everyone to have a microchip when they’ll willingly pay for their own, keeping it with them at all times. We call these things “cellphones”, they’re actually far more versatile and invasive than any sci-fi microchip. We just don’t need to connect people up to monitor and control them, that’s really old technology (and the reason why most sci-fi movies look really dated even if they’re only a couple of years old).

This city is doomed from the start because it has no purpose. The Great Wall (of China) had a purpose. This wall has no use except to be tall enough to cause changes in weather patterns. ts also likely to never get finished because its life cycle is such that older parts will be falling to bits even as newer parts have yet to be constructed. Its hubris on the hoof, as pointed out an exercise in individual vanity.

I think they would go to the trouble of forcing everyone to have a microchip simply because they couldn’t rely on literally everybody having an up-to-date cellphone.

Voluntary slavery can’t be trusted, even if you can manipulate people to a large extent.

Back when I was Pharaoh (4 million BCE) we always trusted voluntary slaves… the involuntary ones always used to form unions so we sent them to Gaul.

I’ve spent most of my working life developing code for ‘microchips’ and they’re not some magic thingy that mysteriously collects data or controls things. They’re just small computers that perform a particular function. Among the simplest at the devices used for RFID, the ‘chip’ that’s inside pets, bank cards and some product labels. To do anything else you’d need interfaces…..to what?

When you join a prison, you get issued with various things. I’m sure they would all be issued with an up-to-date cellphone, with solitary confinement the punishment for not carrying it at all times, for deliberately damaging it etc etc.

On the contrary, it seems that your memory is already betraying you. These harmonious and synchronized sound frequencies were produced by the throats of entire choirs of excellent singing slaves. There was a bit of sweat, a vocal fatigue here and there, and even a long-lasting hoarseness, but in the end everyone agreed it was worth it.

My memory is stored on the Moon and she remains loyal.

These choirs were High Priests of the A-U-M

(In those days everyone was a High Priest and everyone was also a slave… so yes and no, on point of order…)

This was well before the days of Judas Priest but a few of the harmonic synchopations are somewhat similar in amplitude..

Dinosaurs were Illuminati reptilians in animal form. It’s just that one shapeshifting accident happened and they couldn’t get back to their human form. The two families Rockshield and Rothfeller, took advantage.
