It's binary: I O

I'm sure it goes without sayingm but binary is held as a universal code which can supposedly be used to contact other unknown civilizations.

Dark Night...Black Knight...




My thought was that they styled the 'Black Knight' to look like the Sumerian lizardmen -- to play on the 'ancient aliens'/Sumerian decoding thing.

Mammalian.

Yes, well lizardwoman in the case of the example I provided.

Could be either, eh, they didn't included genitalia.

I just realized what you meant..I think the phrase 'lizardmen' refers to a being that's part lizard/part human.


ETA: I want to make sure that you realize I am viewing this a part of a puzzle belonging to a trilogy of fictional treasure hunt books?

Right. But the Endgame books are fiction and something can be half lizard and human in fiction.

Yeah, but it's a very real statue of a stylized mother goddess suckling her child.


Where's Harte when you need him?

The statue is real, but the goddess it represents is as fictional as the 'Black Knight satellite' in the film.

(ETA: Or that's my opinion anyway. I know there are some ancient alien believers that might disagree.)

The black knight is not fiction, however we do not know what it is.

This film is a message that basically states that how we approach new things determines how our reality unfolds.
It is a quantum message. We create our own space and step into it.

I really like it.

Anyone else noticed that the jeeps in Dubai at 5:25 look strangely like the ones ISIS have?

Yes...It does look like an eye to me and I see two nostrils.

Dark knight was something that crossed my mind though, but when I viewed the alleged 'real' photo of the black knight satellite from 1999. It has a caped feel. Perhaps that's why it is said to be a thermal blanket.

I was referring to the black knight ship in the film as "fiction." It is a special effect.

I also really liked the short film.

Did you know Pepsi spends 2 billion dollars a year on advertising?

$2.3bn, actually.

But that would be for all their brands, not just Pepsi-Cola.

Still, it's a massive amount. And it's primarily a product of what you might call Darwinistic sexual competition. You know how sexual selection promotes the unnatural growth of 'fitness advertisements' -- traits such as the peacock's tail, stag's antlers, etc, which are a burden to their possessors but which the opposite sex find attractive. Well, something exactly analogous to this -- an unhinged, Cyranoesque battle for consumers' affection -- inflates ad budgets in the soda market. The rivalry between Coca-Cola and PepsiCo is the biggest grudge match in marketing. If you think PepsiCo's $2bn is big, well, Coca-Cola spent $3.5bn last year. And this despite the fact that soda sales have been in decline for ten years straight!

The ad spend in the category is seriously out of proportion to revenue. Yet both Coke and Pepsi plan to spend even more on their flagship brands next year in their battle for consumers' affections. They are rivals in love, and will all but cripple or beggar themselves to impress the objects of their desire -- us.

This helps explain why the products of this expenditure are so expensive, so elaborate and yet do so little actual 'selling': they're not just advertisements, they're fitness advertisements.
