Hucka D, you have to be aware of these little synchronicities in research: Green and Adair conjunction in Oklahoma in two separate places.
“I found a pink cone near August, West Virginia. Pinkie… the wee-est. Mysterious movings of this cone mentioned here. Pinkie is Peter, again.”
But here’s the reason I’m sure that Derleth should be invoked here: the presence of a Pons sim immediately east of Chesaux, and then the presence of *Holmes* sim directly east of that — all in a row. Derleth saw his character Solar *Pons*, similarly, as a direct successor to Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock *Holmes*. Yet as Hucka D. has already discussed, Pons and Holmes are also the names of comets, and thus their conjunction here in the Comet Archipelago may have nothing to do with a Derleth homage, but just one of those happy or meaningful “accidents” that seems to occur with such frequency when dealing with SL mythology.
Book found in New Wells (hole behind Hucka D.’s lakeside cottage in Chesaux, covered by Tron arcade game). On front is Blood Dr., on back is Dr. Blood. The book read from back is different from one read from first. It is a 4d book. It is found in the hole, or in direct conjunction with the hole. This is new material. The book is *not* Philip Dick’s Dr. Bloodmoney, but there still may be a relationship. It is a red book. Or blue book. Or both. Purest Green inside?
Players assume the role of an unnamed person known as the Stranger, who stumbles across an unusual book titled “Myst”. The Stranger reads the book and discovers a detailed description of an island world called Myst. Placing his hand on the last page, the Stranger is whisked away to the world described, and is left with no choice but to explore the island. Myst contains a library where two additional books can be found, colored red and blue. These books are traps that hold Sirrus and Achenar, the sons of Atrus, who once lived on Myst island with his wife Catherine. Atrus writes special “linking books” that transport people to the worlds, or “Ages”, that the books describe. From the panels of their books, Sirrus and Achenar both tell the Stranger that Atrus is dead, Sirrus hypothesizing that he must have died since he hasn’t returned from looking for evidence against them, while Achenar claims Sirrus murdered him. Both plead for the Stranger to help them escape. However, the books are missing several pages, so the sons’ messages are at first unclear, and riddled with static.
As the Stranger continues to explore the island, more books linking to more Ages are discovered hidden behind complex mechanisms and puzzles. The Stranger must visit each Age, find the red and blue pages hidden there, and return to Myst Island. These pages can then be placed in the corresponding books. As the Stranger adds more pages to these books, the brothers can speak more clearly. Each brother maintains that the other brother cannot be trusted. After collecting four pages, the brothers can talk clearly enough to tell the Stranger where the fifth page is hidden. If the Stranger gives either brother their fifth page, they will be free. The Stranger is left with a choice to help Sirrus, Achenar, or neither.
Both brothers beg the Stranger not to touch the green book that is stored in the same location as their last pages. They claim that it is a book like their own that will trap the Stranger. In truth, it leads to D’ni, where Atrus is imprisoned. When the book is opened, Atrus asks the Stranger to bring him a final page that is hidden on Myst Island; without it, he cannot bring his sons to justice. The game has several endings, depending on the player’s actions. Giving either Sirrus or Achenar the final page of their book causes the Stranger to switch places with the son, leaving the player trapped inside the Prison book. Linking to D’ni without the page Atrus asks for leaves the Stranger and Atrus trapped on D’ni. Linking to D’ni with the page allows Atrus to complete his Myst book and return to the island. Upon returning to the library, the player finds the red and blue books gone, and burn marks on the shelves where they used to be.
Myst is a direct antecedent to Second Life, especially translated through legendary explorer Salazar Jack.
Quoting again from this:
No coincidence, either, that Hucka D. becomes involved, early on in his SL existence, with the audiovisual synchronicity Tronesis, with music provided by the Peter Gabriel led version of Genesis. Peter/Pinky, in a way, is Peter Gabriel as well, as seen in the celestial mechanics of the Cross of the Lamb.
This has to do with a lot of other things, apparently, like (perhaps) the fact that the Mole Hill convexity on the island appears as a Mountain from a distance (another WV or West Virginia idea). Speaking of which, the *sealed* hole also represents West Virginia, I think, especially The Jug region of Middle Creek Island.
