You could say so. Several things are rather mysterious.
To be forensic:
First, the speed of typing. If pre-prepared text was pasted from MS Word, extra work would be required to achieve BB formatting which would take more
time than was taken. Questions are quoted in the standard BB style. The few spelling errors also suggest a word-processor was not used.
Second, refer to Hidden_Hand's Profile
. The first five
posts 55-59 are time-stamped AFTER the next batch. Implies the use of two computers in some way but the mixing up of time-stamps is puzzling.
Third, H_H states (s)he is older or even elderly and hardly uses the internet. Quite a technical finesse for someone of this self-description.
Fourth, the time-stamps on H_H's contribution show a regular wake/work/sleep cycle. Various references to time in H_H's posts do not tally with the
US EST time-stamps. H_H is therefore not on Eastern Standard Time or, if so, does not live according to daylight.
Fifth, H_H is used to addressing audiences and is extremely learned, eloquent and gracious. Possessing a learned tone and being a keen typist
suggests working as an academic, journalist or, perhaps, theologian. There is a warmth and charm in H_H's language consistent with this and
consistent also what is self-claimed.
Sixth, a younger author would be brasher. Supports the claimed age.
Seventh, spelling is British English: "colour" not "color". Not American English.
1. H_H lives a life of routine - regular sleep and work, judging by the time-stamps. Assuming that H_H wakes at 7am or so and is in bed by midnight,
this gives an adjustment of 5 hours for GMT vs EST. This yields a plausible bar chart of the number of posts in each hour of the day. Just one at
lunch-time, a handful around 7am and the rest in the late afternoon and evening. This would suggest H_H is human.
2. If H_H wakes and works during daylight hours, H_H is therefore from the UK or, less likely, continental Europe.
3. H_H is reasonably technically adept, knowing about BB formatting and uses more than one computer.
4. the mystery of the typing speed remains: telepathy, telekinesis and channeling if real, or some incredibly advanced formatting skills if a
word-processor was used.
H_H is human and most likely inhabits the UK, otherwise Europe.
Potentially an academic, journalist, author or (as claimed) a religious figure.
H_H is possessed of super-human skills. H_H is either an extraordinarily accomplished hoax, or is indeed channelling.
