Hey there folks, I'm a brand new member to this site, although I have been reading for years. You guys are AWESOME, seriously some of the most dedicated folks I have EVER seen working for the good of mankind. I came here looking for answers. I have found some, but DANG I have found more questions here than in thirteen years of school. I am neither Democrat, nor Republican, nor Green, nor Libertarian. I am not Apolitical either; I have to make choices just like everyone else. If I had to choose whether I lean right or left, well, I like to think I walk my own path - in search of reason, logic, peace, and damn good music. I would gladly take the chance if given, to change the world. Sometimes I stay up all night reading these posts, amongst other forms of literature. I want to learn. I want to educate those who do not know about truth, and take from others who know what I do not.

I believe in God. Call me old school like that.

I wish someone would deny my ignorance sometimes. I like to party, and listen to rock n roll. I also fancy myself a bluesman. After all, blues speak the truth, (as soon as I can post other threads, I would like to touch on this). I play in as many bands as I can, and am a STRONG advocate of REAL (tangible) instruments played by real musicians. I am a street musician, and as such am pretty at home being considered crazy.

The thing that first brought me here was that during a freak snow storm in OCT 2011, I saw green flashes in the sky that seemed nuclear in scale, horizon to horizon. I braced for impact, put my heads between my knees and kissed my ass goodbye. Well, still here, and Boston is not leveled, so I guess I was wrong. Although my question "What the F was that???" has still not been answered, I have found a small community throughout the online world that also has the same question. It happens all across the world, generally during the cover of clouds, and has been written off as "power flashes" of the electrical grid by the governmental agencies when questioned. the recent post of that reverse lightning is interesting, but not what I saw. Anyways, I'd like to ask others about the mysterious "green flash" that I saw. Not the sunset/sunrise green flash, MY green flash.

I digress though... That green flash has changed my world, allowed me to open my OWN inner eye (watch out illuminati....), and snapped me out of a dark cynical depression I had because I couldn't find stuff that interested me. Safe to say, I am interested by many of the posts on this site and would like to thank the scholars, the detectives, the computer specialists, the forensic scientists, the trolls, the staff, and most importantly the community of ignorant people like me who have up until this point asked the right questions for me (mostly because we are ignorant). You all make this site more reliable than ANY mainstream media outlet that I have come across thus far. I brought the attention of NPR to Brandon Raub's arrest, but only received a generically worded email back. Go figure. I have decided to go to law school starting in Sept, at a local community college because of interests piqued from this site. Again, thank you.

oh and thank you greeneyedleo. my apologies to the admins on here, and thanks for helping me get my **** together.

It would be my pleasure WhisperingWinds. I have heard rumors of a new Jack White album that is OFF THE HOOK. He's a good ol' American Blueman also. When I get some time (i'm hiding at work typing this) i'll take a gander. Thanks for the warm welcome

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride you're on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! But be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, discuss personal illicit drug usage, use profanity, troll, intentionally spread a hoax, spam, advertise and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!

Hmmm,this is odd, "jimmysplizz420" posted a title and an introduction mighty similar to this earlier,tried to view it again on ats search and it has been 404'd?????

Are you sure you are who you say you are?? id provide a link but like i say it has been 404'd

odd.....very odd,spoke earlier of being "apolitical" but now has a same structured thread but with religion in politics place???

care to elaborate??

Oh! and welcome btw

Yessir that was me. Greeneyedleo kindly pointed out I shouldn't breach the t&c with my name, and told me to change one thing in my post, only to do with the same issue. I was stupid so he kindly permabanned my old one and I made this with my new email. Confusing, and I even called the company cause my ip accidently got banned tool: ) anyways it works and I'm glad to be here.

Oh yeah I wanted to say also, I check the dates of posts on my phone and for some reason all these posts say 1991... not 2012. That's my birthday folks so I dunno WHAT is real anymore lol.... w.e. ill deal with it I guess.
edit on 8/19/1991 by JamesCookieIII because: addendum

Oh shizzle, you better hide too. Haha I forsee dark futures for you cause of your name. Any chance you have those posts people put on there before the were moved to the trash can? Once that happened I couldn't even see what the first people said on my stuff... oh well. I was sorta shocked to say the least. Maybe it was cause I accidently posted at 4:20 lol.. caused a little bit of a stir I guess. I said and I quote "I like sex drugs and rock n roll" as an intro.... I guess I recind that statement. I like partying. ROCK ON DUDES

edit on 8/19/1991 by JamesCookieIII because: truth.

ah. found the date problem. entered 1991 making my new account in the date criteria, so every year was 1991. fixed, much less paranoid now coming to this community.

link I find this array of cameras quite disturbing, when coupled with a UAV. when you think about the power this gives the Government, it's like they have hacks in REAL LIFE... plus all the skunkworks injection mining to cause earthquakes? DANG we need to talk. Anyways... could anyone get me 20 so i could post plz? i've been here a while i think its my turn to say somethin.

"Dissent is the highest form of Patriotism" - Howard Zinn

"Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state. All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume. All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.

Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it. You never need an argument against the use of violence, you need an argument for it.

States are not moral agents, people are, and can impose moral standards on powerful institutions. The sign of a truly totalitarian culture is that important truths simply lack cognitive meaning and are interpretable only at the level of "%^%% You", so they can then elicit a perfectly predictable torrent of abuse in response. We've long ago reached that level.

If you quietly accept and go along no matter what your feelings are, ultimately you internalize what you're saying, because it's too hard to believe one thing and say another. I can see it very strikingly in my own background. Go to any elite university and you are usually speaking to very disciplined people, people who have been selected for obedience. And that makes sense. If you've resisted the temptation to tell the teacher, "You're an asshole," which maybe he or she is, and if you don't say, "That's idiotic," when you get a stupid assignment, you will gradually pass through the required filters. You will end up at a good college and eventually with a good job.

One might ask why tobacco is legal and marijuana not. A possible answer is suggested by the nature of the crop. Marijuana can be grown almost anywhere, with little difficulty. It might not be easily marketable by major corporations. Tobacco is quite another story. " - Noam Chomsky

2064 – The Significance of an Anthill: A Teacher’s Lecture on Sustainability through Calculus
“Imagine a golf course. On that golf course, there is an anthill, which we are interested in. In the anthill live fire ants - the little tiny ones which hurt an awful lot if you’ve ever had the misfortune of disturbing their home. The hill is composed of fine silt-like sediment which resembles a parabolic surface, but with imperfections statistically everywhere (the tiny particles are actually three-dimensional crystalline structures of a substance not unlike graphite). We want to push a golf ball up this anthill, and calculate its potential energy at various heights. Now consider that we need to find a function which, as accurately and precisely as possible, represents the potential energy of the golf ball. Ideally, this function will be the path along which we want the golf ball to travel, so that the ants will not be disturbed, while we simultaneously accurately represent the potential energy of the golf ball.
By my reckoning there are three ways to approach this problem. The first way is to carefully place as many points across the anthill as possible, and then connect them with line segments. Although this method will not entirely account for the minutia of the topography of the anthill, it will approximate it as well as we care to measure. We can then make a piecewise function of all the different lines, and thus have a continuous function representing something close to the anthill’s curve. If we are smart, we can take the derivative of each of these lines, which will yield a continuous piecewise derivative, which in this case will closely relate the potential energy of the golf ball to the golf ball’s position. We could then build a ramp out of tiny tiles, the size of the line segments in width and length, and approximate the curve of the anthill along the ball’s projected trajectory. Thus, we could measure the potential energy of the golf ball anywhere along the replica anthill, before we decided to disturb the anthill. However, if we were not satisfied enough with the level of precision, we could decrease the distance between our original points to epsilon, refining our search criteria, and try evaluating the potential energy of the ball again.
The second method of finding the potential energy is to whip out your government-issued smart-watch, open the command prompt, and order it to scan the ground with ten to the one- hundred power infrared beams which are projected through the watch’s multistage crystal refractors, ultimately onto the ground. This googol of beams creates a googol of points which are measured and compared by the dimensional scanners on the watch, and thus we can measure curves with quick, astonishing accuracy. We may take an even more detailed topography of the anthill than we could ever hope to by hand over the course of an entire lifetime. We then would use our three-dimensional printers and build a laser-precise representation of the anthill’s curve to the best ability of the machines and data, and thus find, with even more certainty, the potential energy through vector analysis.
If we were still not satisfied, we could resort to the third refinement method - taking a quadratic regression instead of averaging the points outright, and establishing a parabola which closely resembles the curve of the anthill as we care for (because in reality, the exemplary anthill is defined as parabolic; although minute imperfections exist they are so minute that they will not affect our experiment) – the more data we collect, i.e. the more points on the anthill we place, and the more line segments we form, the more derivatives we take) – the more accurate we become when we build our ramp representation. Eventually, we consider our ramp parabolic (or at least as parabolic as the anthill). After, we measure the potential energy of the golf ball, as calculated by using our model. This is how people have attempted to solve this problem from the invention of calculus until 2032.
That is, until the first quantum computer came online. Up until that point, the only way to solve a problem such as this was purely numerical – that was the way computers’ logic worked, including our smart-watches. Although vastly more capable of raw numerical processes than the average unaided human of the day, the binary computers of the past had to calculate using numerical analysis through the use of algorithms and pseudo codes.
With the invention of Mojo Jojo, the world’s first truly quantum computer, an actual analytical solution makes the most sense if representing the topography of the anthill. By utilizing 20- sided (some would consider 20 dimensional) polygons called amplitetrahedrons, paired with yettabytes of RAM and effectively endless virtual processors, the possible combinations of side lengths and angles of that can be represented geometrically in one amplitetrahedron means that all of the worlds’ libraries could condensed into less than twenty-three amplitetrahedrons. The algorithm used to interpret theses polygons took since the discovery of amplitetrahedrons in 2013 until 2032 to create. Computers are no longer linear products of binary code, and their processors now fail to resemble the complex lattices of previous processors, rather resembling a simple atomic orbital of an atom (or ants throughout the anthill). The processors’ positive core can be likened to the nucleus, and the levels of complexity which the specific amplitetrahedrons represent can be likened to valence shells around it. Theoretically, there are fewer stars in the known universe than possible combinations of 100 amplitetrahedrons. This brings us to 2064. We now think that quantum physics are not just probable, but we are willing to propose that quantum physics establish the laws of our existence. Without them, everything could not be relative to everything else. By refining our computing algorithms using the principles of sustainability, we now use less than one millionth the total amount of energy we used to have to use to run a binary computer per day, to run a quantum rig for a year. Overheating of computer components is now a problem of the distant past. There are even rumors that they will be allowed in our personal living quarters if we are lucky enough.
The possibilities are seemingly endless. We have stopped global warming in its infancy, ended the world water war, and ended world hunger by finding ways to generate economically free energy. The future is bright, ever since we started to value the power of information, and decided as a global community to deny ignorance. Many people today think that this intellectual reawakening can be directly correlated to the sustainability movement of the 2010’s and 2020’s. Without it, the world would certainly be a darker, dirtier place than it is today. With all the energy we have harvested and stored, it is predicted that we could move the entire populations of the planet to Mars and establish an atmosphere if necessary. However, since we have established fail-safe protocols to ensure future sustainability, the only situation in which we would have to move off of earth would be a world-ending event. Thus, the world has come to the next crossroads of humankind, the analysis of “psychohistorical” trends (how living beings interact with reality). Nowadays, finding the curve of the anthill is not of concern to us so much as determining how the ants will respond to the golf ball rolling down their home. With twenty-plus dimensional analysis, we can predict with great success what each individual of the colony will do (although there are still exceptions) as the golf ball releases its potential energy. The evidence for intelligent design of the universe is exponentially mounting, and soon, intelligent design will be accepted as a law of physics, generally accepted by the world of science, and unite the world’s varied religions. Peace on earth is inevitable, and it was clearly possible because of the logic outlined in the Sustainability Principles of Earth, which are the foundations of quantum computing. Thus, the study of matrixes is now our chief subject of concern – statistics rule supreme. This is why we must learn calculus well – the derivatives learned now will apply to sustainability curves you learn later.”
