The Diagonal seems to be predicted in the Jasper 07 collage from 2009 (“It’s up to us now”), presently hanging in Southside’s Gallery Jack.

Snapshot1183_001

Compare its central long, keyhole shaped image (tiles from the side of a Michigan building) with here:

https://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2013/08/19/the-14-triplet-points-of-the-diagonal/

16x16grid09

Even the foreground tile of the picture is adorned with a “D” (the logo of the Detroit Tigers, seen on all subsequent tiles as well extending into the background), just as the first sim on The Diagonal is Dierle, and associated with the letter “D” in the above grid diagram and also in the the microcosmic replica of The Diagonal in Westside’s Church of The Diagonal (below pic; far left letter).

Snapshot1089_009

In looking further at Jasper 07, there’s no real doubt in my mind that this *is* a representation of the future, extended version of The Diagonal. Jasper 07 partially concerns — consciously, that is — the early version of The Diagonal, known only in its “Rubi exclusive” state then. See here for an interpretive post concerning Jasper 07, also from 2009.* And see here, once more, for my 2008 series about the Rubi aspect of The Diagonal if you wish.

We switch subjects to VWX Town’s ties to the actual (*non*-virtual) Whitehead Crossing, or “WX” without the “V”, as it were. I see the link now mainly made through the big grey seal perched on a segment of the Power Tower Gowlery, an obvious and also conscious representation of WX’s pivotal Grey Seal (Grey Rock + Seal Stone). The stream below the virtual grey seal may also stand for WX’s Whitehead Brook, Little Whitehead, and No Name Spring one and all, as the Grey Seal rock formation lies relatively close to each.

Snapshot1169_003

Admittedly, there’s a tension between just giving up the virtual version of Whitehead Crossing — which actually has little to do with the real version except for the connections listed just above — and keeping it into October and perhaps beyond. On the one hand, I’m obviously going to be focusing more on the outdoors and Frank and Herman Parks for the next several months, taking time and energy away from Second Life. On the other hand, we have the growing story of The Diagonal, an exterior energy source for VWX Town that ties it to the whole continent of Heterocera and beyond. I’ll just have to play the two directions against each other for a while longer and see what happens. At any rate I’m certainly pleased about progress made on an interpretation of The Diagonal so far. It may even outstrip Jeogeot mysticism (Big E/Schwa, etc.) in the long run. And to close, I’d like to thank my virtual neighbor Veyot for testing out aspects of The Diagonal and calling it a very interesting theory. 🙂

* In the post, I say of this collage and central image the following:

The overall shape of the orange tiled surface, in combination with the circular shape containing the keyhole at the top of the collage, is also keyhole shaped, Hucka D. The shape runs from the very top to the very bottom of the collage. This collage also happens to be 1024 pixels wide and 682 pixels high, making a relationship of 3:2 between the sides. 1024 is the size of the parcel I just rented in Klein, Hucka D [made up, as well, originally of 2 side-by-side 512 parcels]. The middle of the orange tile lies about 512 pixels from either side as well; exact center of the collage left-to-right, then…. This despite the fact that the overall shape of Jasper 07 is not based on any found photo this time, Hucka D. It is instead *tiled* from an edited picture of a toy, found in a search for Rookwood+tiles…

bb:

I’m convinced Z. has something to do with the master location of Burnet, Hucka D.*

Hucka D.:

Hucka D. is not here. Instead it’s Hucka B., Hucka The Bee. Burnet.

bb:

Are you not Hucka D., then? You sound like Hucka D. Not sure what you look like.

Hucka D.:

Here I am. In the background. Of Nowheresville.

bb:

Like the nothing background or backdrop for Jasper 07.

Hucka D.:

Yes. And, yeah, it’s Hucka D. Just making a point.

bb:

Thanks. So I think the octagonal shaped building next to the master location of Burnet — Joe’s Garage — is a Zappa reference pure and simple. A future Zappa tiling.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Better get to Jasper 08.

bb:

Thanks again. So in the Jasper 08 collage, we have a flag with a D inside a diamond that I believe stands for any sim along The Diagonal, starting with Dierle.* In this case, it stands for Burnet, the 10th sim up from Dierle if we count the latter as the first.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

That the octagon building Joe’s Garage is there beside the master location of this particular sim, and that it represents the main building of the associated spaceport, called *Washburne* or Washtown* in the land description [ but not the sign on the front], is no accident. This resonates with the flooding seen in Jasper 08 as well, a flood seeming to head straight for the octagon shape in *that* collage and the boy encased in such. The boy with the single, giant eyeball in place of a head. Don’t you think Hucka D.?**

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

We know the orange octagon also stands for Billfork and its 8 major nodes, and also a 9th which has escaped, just as the hummingbird — which is the same as a martin according to collage interpretations — has escaped from the octagon and is flying against the tide of the flood in this collage.

Hucka D.:

Yes sir.

—–

“This is Jasper 08.”

Hucka D.:

This is Jasper 08.

—–

* We know this because the row of similar tiles in Jasper 07 has just been associated with the sims of this Diagonal, starting with Dierle. Also of note: the Burnet/32/32/32 master location is exactly one-*eighth* into the sim from the southwest corner, since 256/32 = 8. Another reference to 8, then. Reciprocal.

** A rainy day is sometimes referred to as “a wash” as well.

Not…

… much time tonight, Hucka D. I took Liquor out in the woods today and created some photos. Not very good ones, but still I’m out in the wood.

Hucka D.:

Maybe you should just talk to the reader tonight.

bb:

Okay, we can try that.

Well, today was a pretty decent hiking day for a change. The past two days, actually, I’ve been able to re-visit Lion’s Roar for the first time in probably 1/2 a year or so. Not much has changed there, which is exactly what I’d expect, given that it’s tucked away in the deep woods with probably no visitors except for me. Pots still there; bottles still there. I could reset up Lion’s Roar in a short time. However, the place is wetter than I remember — I don’t think that’s really a change per se, but just something to do with the seasons. I set up Lion’s Roar in the fall, and under dryer conditions when the leaves are off the trees and direct sunlight hits the place with greater frequency. But the bigger news today is finding a small but flat platform area a little above Lion’s Roar on the ridge directly west of it. A place for a tent or even small structure if I wished. This is the same ridge that Kentucky, a much larger (if not necessarily flatter) platform area, is situated upon further up. I also re-visted Kentucky both yesterday and today, and was able to eyeball the Bee Line again from various angles. It still seems to be a legitimate phenomenon.

Is it time to give up my virtual reality town? Not sure. I have about 2 weeks to decide whether to renew September’s tier. If I desert VWX Town, I most likely will not be able to recreate something that extensive in Second Life. What I’ll do if this happens is keep the Lama rental property that the Power Tower Gowlery exists upon, as well as Gallery Jack containing earlier collages. And just delete the rest.

Hucka D.:

You better call a town meeting before you pull the plug. What about The Table?

bb:

The Table in VWX Town is not the *real* Table. Thanks for showing back up again.

Hucka D.:

You’re welcome. Think long and hard about giving up VWX Town.

bb:

Herman and Frank Parks are opening up again. That has to be the focus now. The focus for this blog through me.

Hucka D.:

True (pause).

bb:

So back to the review — Hucka you can hang out still if you wish: Today I also went to Bill Mountain and hiked past the infamous Rust Spot. The road was wet, wet, wet — almost impassable up to the place. I wondered even if the aliens made it this way so they could have more privacy on their mountain.

Hucka D.:

Yes, that is what happened. You shouldn’t or don’t need to go up there for a while. You have the other side of the road.

bb:

That’s right. Today I also walked down TILE Road in Herman Park, which was fun. That was *early*. And then I’ve also visited Whitehead Crossing itself a couple of times in the last week, and plan to go back tomorrow, perhaps early once more.

Hucka D.:

Do that. So where are you going to set up the train tracks the next time?

bb:

Whitehead Crossing?

Hucka D.:

You’re asking me?

bb:

Um… maybe.

Hucka D.:

If you’re finally getting back to Frank and Herman Park mythology…

bb:

Uh oh.

Gone.

I forgot to talk about the contemplation loop.

Hucka D.:

New Liquor Shots! (the *real* Whitehead X-ing, plus Byng)

What next?

Snapshot1207_005_002

The weather is getting warmer, and I believe further exploration of the Byng area for now might be blocked. My promised pictures of that place today turned out not to be, since I forgot my frigg’n memory card before heading into the woods. So instead I decided to go over to old, reliable Whitehead Crossing, but from The Way this time. Standard nomenclature needs to be reviewed for the area. Whitehead X-ing is so accessible because you can get to it through a number of ways (and so not just through The Way, har). It is definitely a center. Today I walked the Contemplation Loop quite a bit once more, but a slower pace than on previous visits. Will read more of my older Whitehead X-ing notes after finishing this post.

Hucka D.:

No pictures today? Aww.

bb:

Sorry. Stupid memory. *Mine*.

Hucka D.:

Contemplation Loop is connecting you to the woods, the wild. I heard you heard coyotes. Maybe wolves. But I think coyotes.

bb:

Yeah.

Hucka D.:

You just need to walk it as much as possible. Missouri is closed for now. Missouri will change into something else in a bit. Different name, I mean.

bb:

It’s an amazing ridge. And a path that I could not have predicted up that ridge beginning at the very start of the Lion’s Roar/Kansas path. Crazy.

Hucka D.:

That is Missouri, leading to Kentucky. You should study that state[ again].

bb:

Apologies once more about the pictures.

Hucka D.:

Soon it will open up. Lion’s Roar and Kansas too.

bb:

Who lived in Missouri?

Hucka D.:

*You*.

bb:

Hmmm… how about toy avatars. For that place and also Lion’s Roar/Kansas.

Hucka D.:

That beginning of the path, presently guarded by a greenish mushroom, is the gateway to the future. Missouri future. Through it you can gain quicker access to Kentucky and beyond. Diagonal. This formerly hidden trail will lead you further than ever before. Future.

bb:

Thank you.

Plans

Go back to the Gene Fade Mountain’s 80 post art work and look closely at posts 00, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, perhaps comparing them with the 8 (or 9) points of the Burnet “octagon”, if end is looped back into beginning. We’ve already made a connection between the 80 posts rock work and Kentucky’s Bee Line (through Fade Mtn.’s [failed] Weaving Spot). Is it now also connected to Whitehead X-ing’s Contemplation Loop, given that the weaving spot was also such a loop for at least one day? Must compare lengths of all. Something will arise.

Today I plan to go back to Missouri and also Kentucky further up the same ridge and take some notes, perhaps some c[h]ord. Will have to be 70 yards in length. I’m thinking of using wire. Will a train track be built at Kentucky? Missouri?

Byng 01

A greenish mushroom that has partially collapsed since I first spied it at the beginning of the Missouri Trail of Byng several days ago. I barely recognized it, in fact. The surface aspect of mushrooms seem to have a short span of existence. That’s something I look forward to studying closer when I retired in *7 1/2* years, barring illness. And even with illness (not going to happen) it will still be 7 1/2 total years, since I have bunches of sick leave accumulated. Not that I don’t like my job, but I have things to do… besides keeping up with this blog, which I intend to continue until I can’t. Frank and Herman, Einstein! is long term. Maybe beyond 7 1/2 years. 🙂

Since the below spot marks the point where you can enter Kansas (middle Byng Creek) or Missouri (ridge west of Byng), some might call it Kansas City. I’m not sure I’m ready to run with that particular pack yet.

IMG_0008smallest

Holey Moley! Is that a wood fairy I took a picture of yesterday?!? This was a bit up the Missouri Trail, where you can see Lion’s Roar (central dark patch) in the background. I believe I took the picture with a flash (automatically set to adjust for lighting), but still I don’t see how it could illuminate a whole object like that. Could be wrong. Didn’t see anything like a fairy (or big bug) when taking the picture.

IMG_0010smaller

Close-up of the “fairy”. You can definitely see the wings here, and it appears to be flying at a goodly rate, or at least the wings, if that’s what they are, appear to be vibrating at such.

IMG_0010originaldetail

A short hike uphill brings us to the flatter platform of Missouri, not nearly as big as the Kentucky platform further up the same ridge but its only other identifiable platform area nonetheless that I can tell. The name Missouri comes from its proximity to both Kentucky to the west and Kansas to the east. Illinois and Iowa may figure into this as well, and it’s rumored (so far in Byng story) that Kansas’ Rock Island, which I’ll get to in a moment in this photo series, actually comes from a hidden mystery land of Illinois or Iowa or both, perhaps originally issuing from the area of The Impass above Kansas on Byng. Now factor into this seed mythology the Missouri platform situated not far above Rock Island.

IMG_0011smaller

Details from Missouri.

IMG_0015smaller

This photos depicts a tree seeming to grow almost horizontally out of the ground, but on second glance appears to be dead. Unusual.

IMG_0016smaller

Now we come to another oddity of the day. As I was shuffling around the Missouri platform taking pictures, I noticed not one but two unusual sounds. One sounded like somewhat garbled or muffled gunshot from a distance hill, and at a peculiarly regular rate. The second at first seem to come from the other direction, and sounded like a benign chirp from some exotic bird. It took a while to understand that the two sounds actually came from one source: a raccoon perched perhaps 50-60 feet above me in a tree. The sounds were directed toward *me*!

IMG_0021smaller

When I returned home last night, I looked up raccoon sounds on the Internet, and discovered they can make an astonishingly wide variety of such. I never found an audio match for the more threatening of the two sounds, however. I didn’t feel like I was in immediate danger, but I also knew that to continue up to Kentucky, my original plan, would have me passing through this very spot on the way back. I didn’t like the idea of encountering this raccoon again, and so I decided to instead descend back down the ridge and head over to Kansas and Byng instead. Below we have a pic from the still extant pots neatly tucked into an inner pocket of Lion’s Roar’s large, overhanging rock.

Byng 02

(continued from “Byng 01”)

Rock Island about 50 yards or so upstream from Lion’s Roar. One could certainly make an argument that it’s not an island per se, but just an interior conglomeration of rocks more often than not protruding above Byng’s water level.

Interesting orange tinted rock patterns within an unnamed, small cascade just above Rock Island.

Shots into the upper reaches of Byng’s Kansas region, which has taken on added significance in the meantime:

IMG_0067smallest

I’ve found a path linking Missouri on the ridge to the west (same ridge with the Kentucky platform further up, once more) to this rock filled and more spread out, circle shaped part of Byng I am standing in for the below picture. Just downstream from here, we can spy the dark silhouette of a large, dead tree that perhaps represents the center of 6 Minute Hill. More on that soon as well.

Thoughts

Head’n to Charleston tomorrow. Always great fun. Thoughts before leaving: Will probably take a number of blog ring binders with me. 🙂 Thinking of the inevitable end of VWX Town, which has existed almost 2 months now, a long time for a virtual town for me without the word Pietmond in its name. Will it be as early as September? Heterocera’s The Diagonal is admittedly a very exciting concept, and seems to have greater potential beyond what I’ve found so far. The Church of The Diagonal connects it directly with the pulse of VWX Town. But I’ll also be out in the woods a lot even in Sep. and especially Oct. That will be my main focus. Drawbacks to destroying VWX Town: As I’m reading things, and as I’ve mentioned before on this blog, the possibility to create a town in larger than a 8704 space without jumping up to the next Linden tier payment (40 US dollars to 75 US dollars) has greatly narrowed in the past year, as the rules of Linden land abandonment have changed and the number of mainland parcels for sale has greatly shrunk, shooting up real estate prices and obviously causing problems for my regular rental businesses such as Lama Estates. I was very lucky to even have set up VWX Town in the first place, which now covers 13312 square meters, and also has some add on real estate components, as one could put it. I actually have what is in effect a second avatar resident of the town, even, who has contributed to its skyline with a conglomerate freebie structure of her own. In effect, the town almost covers 1/4th of a sim, which is fairly extensive and probably matches or surpasses even the largest expansions of Old Pietmond. So back to the question: How long will VWX Town last? If I can get past Sep. and Oct. its existence could possibly extend even into Jan. or Feb. In other words, it could come up to the level of Old Pietmond status, if so. I’m having trouble envisioning that, and it would mean putting out about 300 dollars for land expenses from Sep. – Jan. If I just keep my Lama rental land in Philudoria, that would be reduced to about 60 dollars, a savings of around 250 dollars. I want to keep a land presence in SL, and the 60 dollars is quite reasonable for this period of time. But let’s think this through — *eventually* I’m gonna buy a bigger chunk of land in Second Life if I give up VWX Town in Sep., which will most likely cost me about 20-30 more dollars upon purchase, subtracting the tier payments. I’ve already paid for the Philudoria property. Plus there’s the problem of timing the land purchase to maximize my tier value, which I was able to accomplish with VWX Town. Then if I buy property in another place later on, it’s probably not going to be on as cool of land as my present burg, with its connection to the Heterocera Diagonal, prox. to the glorious VHC Town, and so forth. And one needs artistic hobbies; I don’t pay anything for exploring Frank and Herman Parks except for the gas to get there and the inevitable car repairs of the Frank_and_Hermanmobile (1999 Honda Civic). And it seems like when I shift my regular SL purchases over to another art venture — think specifically of buying a Lionel train set last spring — it doesn’t seem to give me as much immediate pleasure for certain. Long term may be a different case. The money I sink into Second Life does not get me any tangible products such as train track, which I can still use, say, 10 or 20 years down the road. Hmmm.

Hucka D.:

Keep VWX Town. I’ll pay the bills through January.

bb:

Thanks Hucka D. But you don’t really have any money you can give me, you know. It’s all out of my pocket, me as baker b.

Hucka D.:

Not really. I can give you money. I gave you money for travel this summer.

bb:

Hmmm (again). What is the importance of hanging on to VWX Town?

Hucka D.:

You just listed them above — in this blog post. We are in a blog post aren’t we?

bb:

This time. Do *you* — well, you just said I should hold on to it. Maybe we should have a town meeting. Who will represent Northside?

Hucka D.:

Casey The Alien of course. He’s up and about now after his resurrection. He lives in the Cape Map cottage on the edge of Northside. Has a bed upstairs. You should invite him over for tea.

bb:

Tea with baker b. Or Baker Bloch.

Hucka D.:

Sure. He’s the one you need to talk to the most now. He can communicate to you in Second Life[ now].

Hi. Thanks for inviting me over for tea (smiles).

Hi CTA. Welcome to Nowheresville.

Variety of Stuff

Started to work on carrcasses again after almost a 3 month layoff. I call the newest one “Number Nine” (subject to change), apparently a close companion to “8 Ball” basically completed in June before we left for England. As usual, I can’t give out many details on these, unfortunately. I *can* talk about it using more abstracted images.

Strange I was the first to mention Burnet on the Synchronicity Phenomena board, not Don, who later actually lived there.

“”I want more elbow room!”

~ Daniel Boone, when asked why he was moving to Missouri

Back from Charleston. Very nice as usual. Big find or re-find of the trip was Rockville about 20 miles west of Charleston.

2 or 3 days to decide about VWX Town. If abandoned I would have money to venture into another virtual reality eventually, perhaps Kitely.

Hucka D.:

So this is it for VWX Town, against my wishes.

bb:

Could be, Hucka D. Woods, you know.

Hucka D.:

Going to Missouri tomorrow?

bb:

Thought I would, Hucka. I think I have to.

Hucka D.:

You don’t have to, but, yeah… go. Dan’l Boone. Sheldon could join you if he were here but he isn’t.

bb:

I promise to take more pictures.

Recent Hikes…

Shot of large rock near Green Oz Creek, in the section of Green Oz I’ve been calling Yellow Down in this here blog. I need to eventually give it a name. Just to remind, Green Oz represents the middle ground of Green Oz Creek from source to mouth, a more open area with numerous fields roughly centered by Tinsity. It seems naturally divided into two larger section: Greenup to the north and Yellow Down to the south, with a smaller, central patch of rhododendron that appears to be a divider between the two called Brownie (or Dark Space). Tinsity lies on the upper edge of Brownie, or, oppositely, on the southern limit of Greenup.

IMG_0071smallest

This is a photo looking over Skillet Swamp just north, in turn, from Tinsity.

IMG_0084smaller

Heavy summer rains have seemingly washed away this old avatar bridge, but also created a new crossing seen below.

IMG_0092smallest

Beautiful meadow between Green Oz and the Quartz Brook Valley to its northwest, which I also revisited the next day but didn’t take any photos of. While the leaves are still on the trees, the woods tend to be pretty dark, making picture taking difficult. I’m not a big fan of outdoor flash photography.

And this Tin S. Man is also Imaginary Man, since I don’t know his identity (still) even though he knows mine, if he chooses to really think hard and remember (smile).

Hucka D.:

That was a set up flaw. You had to give up rainbowology, but now you have Number 9 and know more about Lisa the Vegetarian — her first true love.

Future. Are there others?

bb:

I’m going to return to Green Oz Creek this weekend, Hucka D. Take some better pictures in lighter situations.

Hucka D.:

Lighter sunlight you mean. Not lighter like float away lighter.

bb:

Right.

Hucka D.:

Skillet the Squirrel is Number 2 to Mouse’s Number 1. Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker. You. You must be Tin S. Man (as well), along with Ray Davies of The Kniks. 4 in 1. Foreign One. You see? 4 Men.

bb:

Maybe. Yeah.

Hucka D.:

When The Kinks become The Kniks, then you have Number 0 and Number 9 together. 4 Men.

Snapshot1223_001

bb:

Oh Hucka… check out what my neighbor created (speaking of 4 people). She’s a funny one.

Snapshot1221_002

Hucka D.:

Everything has meaning in little VWX Town. Good work.

bb:

It’s a special place. But I’m (still) gonna destroy it. Soon.

Hucka D.:

Special place. Special destruction.

CTA:

I haven’t even been to a town meeting!

bb:

Hi CTA. Northside representative, I suppose.

CTA:

Born and raised there (!)

bb:

Do you know Lisa the Vegetarian?

CTA:

If she attends I must attend.

bb:

Hmmm.

—–

Hucka D.:

Don’t you think the 4 members of The Kniks represent undifferentiated–ness. Prebirth, before separation of 4 tile colors. Then Number 9 is birth of abstraction. The 4 Men separated into their 4 Corners.

bb:

Tin S. Man must have known of this 4 in 1, this Foreign One.

Hucka D.:

He referred to it/him plainly and simply as Number 9. Plain and simple.

bb:

So Tin S. Man would stroll into his workplace at Tinsity from his castle and start jabbering about his very good friend Number Nine who he had seen the night before.

Hucka D.:

Precisely.

bb:

No one would meet Number Nine. No one knew who it was.

Hucka D.:

It was an abstraction.

bb:

He and Number 9 would talk about Skillet Swamp. They remember the Swamp before Tin S. Man extended an Olive Branch. They remembered the bad to the bone Swamp. Monster. Travis/Randy.

Hucka D.:

So there.

bb:

Sorry (once more). I was daydreaming.

Hucka D.:

About your Co-worker. You’ll get along. Pink Floyd.

bb:

Back to Number 9 (though). There was discussion (in the office) behind boss Tin S. Man’s back about Number 9 being imaginary and not existing.

Hucka D.:

Which it didn’t, of course. But it did. Does.

bb:

I wonder where (Wallace’s) Wallace is in all this? But to back up, Number 9 is obviously a lot about Tin S. Man and his Tinsity. Tin S. Man, as the 11th (LINK), is a direct continuation of Dark Side of the Rainbow’s 10. Tin.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Very important.

bb:

Dark Side of the Rainbow ends in 10 or Tin — number or metal I mean.

Hucka D.:

Yes, I can read it (what you’re saying).

bb:

Tin S. Man must control Dark Side of the Rainbow, then. Like a beehive.*

* http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032138/trivia

A scene was filmed in which the Tin Man was turned into a “human beehive” by the Wicked Witch; after he crushes a bee, the Tin Man cries and rusts his jaw shut, then has to be oiled by Dorothy to get his jaw working again. This scene was cut and so the scene of Dorothy and her companions that comes after where the “beehive” scene had to be flipped to match their continuity in the earlier scene, causing them to appear blurred slightly.

—–

Bee

“You’re a bee, Hucka D. Doobie. Do-bee.”

Hucka D.:

Back again (I see). Want to talk about Tin S. Man more? I’m game. Tin S. Man is the boss at the place you work.

bb:

Meaning he is (kind of) me.

Hucka D.:

There is you, your friend Number 9, and the Co-Worker.

bb:

I go to work, walking up from my castle.

Hucka D.:

The Co-Worker said your workplace is your castle.

bb:

Castle away from castle (like home away from home).

Hucka D.:

Good enough.

bb:

But then I bring Number 9 into the picture. Number 9 is my friend but my imaginary friend.

Hucka D.:

Real and imaginary both.

bb:

I am Tin S. Man in this situation.

Hucka D.:

You have become Tin S. Man because the former Tin S. Man has vacated the property. Tin S. Man is a tile. Title, I meant to say there (tee hee).

bb:

You don the Tinman suit and become Tin S. Man.

Hucka D.:

So you and the Co-Worker can’t get along while Number 9 is imaginary but when it turns real and becomes a he (or she) you get along again. You became absorbed into Number 9. Now you are Tin. S. Man. Tin S. Man. Repeat after me…

bb:

Tin S. Man. Tin S. Man. Cool.

Hucka D.:

You can assume the role of any of these 4 Men (actually). You can become primitive and turn into Apeman. You can become super smart and super wise and become Superman. You can be Tin S. Man (as spoken about). You can become Imaginary Man (as talked about).

—–

bb:

I kind of find it fascinating that I’m now Tin S. Man and not my old friend from before, the other person strongly interested in rainbowology.

Hucka D.:

He painted himself into a corner and shot himself into a foot. He remained imaginary while you were real and that produced a conundrum, a paradox. The solution is that you replace Tin S. Man with yourself. This means Wallace3 has become an alternate self that you live side by side with.

bb (repeating):

I’m Tin S. Man.

—–

Should…

be able to get out into the woods quite a lot this weekend. Gonna focus on Byng and Green Oz Creek and Wealthy Mtn. Maybe Whitehead Crossing… Norris. So many options.

—–

5:31pm:

Number 9 took a considerably shorter amount of time than I planned. I seem to be heading directly into contemplation of another synch — Tinsity is a preliminary name.

—–

Wealthy Mtn. 01

More isolated rock in a Wealthy Mtn. cow pasture, looking considerably like a tombstone.

IMG_0001smaller

Sideview of same.

IMG_0004smaller

A little further up the mountain but looking in the same direction.

IMG_0010smaller

Interesting tree on a platform ridge about 4200 feet up now. Not much further to the top walking along this same path.

IMG_0013smaller

The top itself. I’ve already taken a photo of this particular tree for the Baker Blinker Blog (LINK).

IMG_0019smallest

IMG_0021smaller

As explained in that same blog entry, the very top of the mountain is enclosed by an elliptical rock wall, perhaps 100 feet in circumference.

IMG_0031smaller

Loose rocks adorning a larger rock at the very tip top of Wealthy Mtn., near the center of the region enclosed by the above pictured oval wall.

Whatever, it was certainly another beautiful day on Wealthy Mountain!

Wealthy Mtn. 02: Tinsity

Interesting moss rimmed end of a stick projecting itself above the flow of Green Oz Creek at Wallace. A portion of Wallace’s rocky beach can be seen in the foreground. We’ll be talking about that beach quite a bit in coming posts.

IMG_0040smaller

Wallace’s rocky beach in the foreground, and Tinsity’s similarly sized beach more in the background (“downtown” Tinsity to its right). Also in the foreground is seen the as yet unnamed murky or stagnant pool of water originally found about 2 years ago in my first explorations of the Tinsity area.

IMG_0045smaller

Interesting bank in Wallace originally pictured here as well. Hucka D. states this is most likely the remains of some kind of ancient city wall. The Wall.

IMG_0047smaller

IMG_0050smaller

Closeup of the stagnant pool. Hucka D. is now indicating that the name is S. Pool, or perhaps Ace Pool. It is the result of a Tinsity/Wallace scientific experiment gone wrong.*

IMG_0056smaller

Main part of Tinsity, or what could be dubbed “The Avenue”.

IMG_0059smaller

Standout-ish rock on Tinsity’s beach. Another ancient artifact?

IMG_0062smaller

Barrier tree dividing both Wallace and Tinsity from the Bones area, considered somewhat haunted. Compare with here and here.

IMG_0067smallest

Alignment of 3 rocks in Dark Space. We are moving below Greenup through this space (called “Brownie” in ancient tongues) to reach Yellow Down and I. Rock (yes I have a name for it now!).

IMG_0069smaller

* This same experiment may have caused Wallace’s several sinks holes found near the entrance to the town from the north, just before the Wallace Hump House.

—–

Wealthy Mtn. 03: Yellow Down

Pretty amazing rock found in the midst of Green Oz Creek just before the lower entrance into Dark Space. Is it yet another one of those ancient artifacts, perhaps encoded with information about Green Oz, or at least the Dark Space part? Time might tell. Its texture reminds me a bit of satellite photographs of the Martian surface. Compare with here.

IMG_0070smaller

Standing above the rock.

IMG_0072smallest

A brick was discovered beside Green Oz Creek about 10 yards downstream from the rock pictured above. Remnant from an ancient road?

IMG_0078smallest

Peering into the lower entrance of Dark Space from Yellow Down, with the rock seen in photos 1 and 2 above being the furthest gray specimen back. Interesting vine above the Dark Space “entrance” as well from this angle.

IMG_0079smaller

Another more interesting stone; close to the brick. I have a name for this one: Rib Rock, because its shape reminds me of this curved bone, or a series of such. Actually I think the phrase I’m grasping for is “rib slab”. The rock can be wiggled back and forth like such a slab — or one could say it *rocks* back and forth. I also think of the Flintstone’s car and the giant dinosaur rib slab that topples it over during the closing credits of every episode.

IMG_0083smaller

Yd Falls again. Seems like every time I pass through Yellow Down I have to take a picture of it.

IMG_0085smaller

And now we return to I. Rock. Yes, I have a name for this one now as well. I. Rock means several things. The rock…

IMG_0086smaller

… as seen from this angle, appears to have not one but several “eyes” that stare back at the viewer.

IMG_0088smaller

I count 3 or 4 in this one. Can you see them? I’ll point them out in a future post, along with something else. Leaving the rock alone for now, take a good look at the photo above and below. Something very peculiar seems to be going on, so much so that I think I’ll reserve talk about it for a future post of its own (along with pointing out the rock eyes). For now, I’ll say it has to do with another meaning of the name “I. Rock”, and that is as a statement of consciousness. “I. Rock” translates, in this manner, to “I (am a) rock.” Or perhaps even going further, that the rock knows that it rocks, or that it is a very cool and meaningful rock. I really have no doubt of this consciousness factor.

IMG_0089smaller

Details from the top of I. Rock. And here’s another crucial term when considering this formation: microcosm. The rock is topped with a layer of soil from which sprouts a number of different plants, including the moss (and violets?) below.

IMG_0090smallest

The other side of the “face” of I. Rock, dominated by a crosshatching effect.

IMG_0092smallest

Closeup of the face. Notice there is a mouth of sorts as well. Reptilian.

IMG_0095smaller

I. Rock is situated about 10-15 yards from Green Oz Creek. The grass decorated rock in the foreground provides a great viewing spot for the surroundings.

IMG_0098smaller

Nearing the lower end of Yellow Down now, with Green Oz Creek soon to slide into impenetrable rhododendron as it continues toward Health Lake.

Wealthy Mtn. 04

Not the greatest picture, but here’s what might best represent the head or source of Green Oz Creek, where two seeps merge to form this wide-ish, gradual rocky cascade.

IMG_0004smaller

Interesting overhead shot of the lower part of same cascade. The central white object is a rock. This is taken from a steep bank to the south of Green Oz Creek.

IMG_0005smallest

The source of Green Oz Creek from the opposite direction. The blue object is some kind of water bucket, perhaps formerly set up as a water source for local livestock. I speculate this because the upper part of Green Oz Creek lies within a fenced in cow pasture. In fact the middle section of the creek lies within a cow pasture as well, and only the lower part, toward the mouth, remains bovine free.

IMG_0006smaller

Here’s a primitive bridge made of branches and a warped wooden plank crossing one of the two seeps presently feeding the formation of Green Oz Creek. If you look closely, you can also see this bridge in the background of this post’s first photo.

IMG_0007smaller

And these two conjoined trees, one live and one dead, also appear in the same photo to the right, perched directly above the stream head.

IMG_0008smaller

We now move back to Yellow Down and the large rock found in its center. As of the morning of 9/17/13, I’m calling this I. Rock. No spirits showing up in this particular shot. 😮 The rock doesn’t seem to be staring back at me as much, either… or is it?

IMG_0009smaller

I also revisited the Tinsity/Wallace region on this particular hike, and found that I had absentmindedly left my plastic coffee cup from the day before on one of its two, larger rocky beaches — at the place I call Wallace. The thing is, something appeared to have interacted with the cup in the meantime, with the lid bent up. Was it a raccoon? If so, they also dug a *hole* about 5 inches deep and wide just in back of the cup where I found it this day. Why would a raccoon dig a substantial hole here? Was it trying to bury or hide the object? Of course, my mind starts thinking about aliens when anything out of the norm happens in the woods these days. The wife quickly speculated along the same lines when I returned home and told her about this most recent mystery event. No other obviously dug holes were found on this beach.

And then to punctuate the oddness, as it were, immediately after seeing the quite curious hole, I spied a dragonfly floating in the water near the tip of the beach’s projection. Thinking it was dead, I found a small stick and pulled it to shore. However, it started to stir slightly as I did this; it was obviously still alive, if weak. I managed to maneuver a leaf underneath it and then set it next to the dug hole. If the dragonfly were instead dead, I was planning to put it into the cup I left at the beach and take it home.

As you can tell from the below picture, this appears to be a pretty large example of the species. Those translucent green eyes were something else to look at. I remember now that my Second Life avatar Karoz has dragon eyes. Is this bug an aspect of Wallace himself in some fashion or way?

Is it a *trained* dragonfly? At any rate, when I returned to the same spot a number of hours later the insect was gone, supposedly having gathered its strength and flown away in the meantime.

IMG_0013smaller

Dragonfly (left center) and hole. I positioned a clear marble that I had in my camera bag next to the dragonfly, thinking that might give it some kind of comfort in its dying moments (when I thought it still might be dying). This also gives you an idea of the size of the bug — pretty big.

“The hole represents the grave of the bug, which is the grave of Wallace. You were suppose to put the bug into the hole. But you saw it was instead alive.”

bb:

Was it a *trained* insect?

Hucka D.:

That is all we’re allowed to say at the moment. Sorry.

bb:

What of the *light*?

Hucka D.:

Sorry.

—-

Let’s see, I was going to put the dragonfly, if dead, into the cup and take it home. I had accidentally left the cup behind on the beach the day before. In the meantime something had played with the cup and bent it up a bit, and also dug a hole perhaps at the same spot the cup was originally at (when I found the cup, it had been overturned). When I saw this cup, I also realized that I had *just* left another coffee cup of the same kind in Yellow Down. How absentminded can one be?? So I decided to return to Yellow Down and retrieve that cup as well, not wanting to clutter up the woods any more than I already do.

Green Oz Creek 01

Dam on the lower part of Green Oz Creek, below the Green Oz region proper. To remind, Green Oz Creek passes through Green Oz proper during the middle part of its journey from the side of Wealthy Mtn. to Health Lake, a total distance of less than a mile. I believe this is the only dam on the creek as well to my knowledge.

IMG_0024smallest

Yet another photo from Green Oz now, looking from the northern meadow into the heart of the Yellow Down section of this region. Green Oz Creek can be glimpsed in the center of the picture.

S. Man

“Hucka D., I believe I’ll take my toys out to Wallace early Sat. morning, before the rain comes.”

Hucka D.:

Good idea. Who will be there. Carcassonne? Cardboard Derek Jones?

bb:

No that’s Second Life characters, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

They can be there[ though]. What’s the relationship between VWX Town and Wallace? Just asking.

bb:

Unsure Hucka. What do you think it is?

Hucka D.:

Unsure as well. Wallace now seems more important than[ neighboring] Tinsity, at least…

bb:

At least temporarily.

Hucka D.:

Tin S. Man, the original, is still in the picture Hucka D. I have not yet fully become Tin S. Man, then. The original is still around.

bb:

Hucka, you seem to be channeling me again but more completely. Can we talk about Tin S. Man?

Hucka D.:

Tin S. Man has his castle, which is threatened. The co-worker doesn’t really care one way or the other. Go in Sunday and do some stats if you have to.

—–

I don’t think it’s going to be a train track happening. Maybe just take pictures of rocks and stuff there[ at Wallace].

Wallace:

I am alien. Dragon. Dragon eyes. Limited by circle. Schwa. Trying to communicate.

You are Wallace3?

Wallace3:

Maybe.

I need to make a map.

Green Oz Creek Again 01

Stepping stones across Green Oz Creek leading to “Bedrock”, just off camera to the right here. Yd Falls can be seen in the background. More soon on this Bedrock, seemingly an ancient community of Yellow Down according to Hucka D. Isn’t that right Hucka D.? (Hucka D.: No. I mean, yes.) Anyway, this relates to finding Rib Rock in Yellow Down as well (another Flintstone image: see here), and also the reptilian or dinosaur-like face of I. Rock — along with the very queerly positioned “reptile” skull just up the hill from it. More on that very soon as well. My September experiences in Yellow Down are making for quite a story!

IMG_0103smallest

Lichen and moss decorated top of an as yet unnamed, larger rock in Yellow Down, demarking a lower edge of this Bedrock area. More comprehensive picture of this rock here.

IMG_0105smaller

Directly above this Bedrock is found an flat, open woodsy area, with several interesting characteristics. Like the below pictured rock with a pile of smaller rocks on top of it…

IMG_0117smaller

… and several old but still standing fence posts like this one.

IMG_0119smaller

The posts continue through a marshy stream bed below, whose flow then passes through a small grove of rhododendron and into Green Oz Creek about at that rock seen in photo no. 2 above.

Green Oz Creek Again 02

What will be called the traditional entrance to Tinsity according to Hucka D., who is able to peer into the future with his prescient bee vision. Is Tinsity that important? According to Hucka D.: Yes. The trail can be seen to veer off from the carriage road in the lower right corner, next to the barb wire fence. Presently this is only a secondary cow path, with the general public not knowing anything about its ultimate importance. Is it really that important? Yes, answers Hucka D. once more. I’ll just have to take his word for it for now.

The large tulip/poplar tree acts as a nice landmark for the trail’s beginning. Hucka D. further states that this positioning means that the trail will be pop(u)lar in the future. I’ve told him just to stop with the silly puns.

IMG_0131smaller

If you continue on the road you’ll soon come to a large meadow region with nice views to be had all around.

IMG_0133smaller

If you continue down the Tinsity Trail instead, you’ll soon come to an interesting landscape depression pictured below, of unknown importance or origin. I think Hucka D. wants to revisit this depression in the future. He’s stating something needs to be inserted there. The depression lies directly above one of the several seeps that run down to Green Oz Creek in Yellow Down, perhaps 5 or 6 in number. Will each one garner a separate name?

IMG_0137smaller

Holey moley! You can imagine my reaction when I spied this skull across perhaps the same seep lower down, suspiciously well positioned on a small, flat ridge just above. From this angle it certainly looks alien, or at least dinosaur-like. To my relieve (phew!), it’s actually a cow skull turned on its side. But what an illusion, given all else that’s happened in Yellow Down before it! I plan to make a separate posts reviewing photo oddities from this region in the coming days.

IMG_0139smaller

This same seep empties into Green Oz Creek very near the previously discussed Rib Rock, already associated with reptiles and dinosaurs through a Flintstone lineage. The ridge with the cow skull is inside the shaded area at the top of this photo.

IMG_0143smaller

Green Oz Creek shoreline nearby.

IMG_0147smaller

Moving a bit further downstream, we have a photo of 2 more interesting rocks near View Rock, itself perched just above Green Oz Creek below I. Rock. For the record, we presently have 3 named rocks in Yellow Down: View Rock, I. Rock, and Rib Rock. But with more appellations to come, I’m assuming.

News, Notes

My ailing mother appears to be making a recovery. I know she is attempting to avoid a nursing home/assisted living situation as much as possible. She needs to take her vitamins so she won’t be so weak. She’s doing well, very well… for a 92 1/2 year old. This weekend I will be down with her again.

For lack of time, let’s go ahead and call in Hucka D. if he’s around. Hucka?

Hucka D.:

Hi baker. Good job with your mom. You got rewards points.

bb:

Thanks, Hucka D. Not out of the woods yet.

Hucka D.:

No, back *in* the woods. This weekend.

bb:

We’ll see. So, Green Oz Creek. That’s been the focus around this time of year 3 years in a row now, Hucka D., starting in 2011. And that initial focus was also the beginning of the obvious shift from Second Life to Real Life exploring for blog recording purposes. Each “passage” through Green Oz and Green Oz Creek as a whole bring more understand, more focus to the overall picture. It is a large story. Now, although Green Oz Creek has been a September focus the last several years, it’s also shifted, itself, into other stories during October and November. First we have, as I’m sure you’ll remember, the shift of Green Oz energy into norris or NORRIS or Norris.

Hucka D.:

My ex!

bb:

Yes… to the reader or readers, Hucka D. was actually married to this creek for a spell, according to him.

Hucka D.:

Truth!

bb:

That was 2011, when we were still working within the framework of the Baker Blinker Blog.

Hucka D.:

Yeah.

bb:

Then in 2012, and at the start of the current Frank and Herman Einstein blog, we shift an initial focus on Green Oz Creek into *Byng*, yet another stream. This involved the creation of the Lion’s Roar community and also the development of the Kentucky Platform and its Bee Line, etc.

Hucka D.:

Good times.

bb:

Now in 2013 we have the same situation: Green Oz Creek, in September, once again is in the blog spotlight, the blog crosshairs. Actually I don’t like that latter expression.

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

What will it shift into *this* year? What will be my fall hiking focus, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Opening the presents before Christmas are we?

bb:

Attempting to. Okay, you probably can’t tell me.

Hucka D.:

Green Oz Creek will continue to be the focus this time of year. Year after year after year. Tin Commandment: Love others as you love Yoself. Focus on Gold as original community of Tinsity area. Gold powder… Ark. Tinsity and Tin S. Man had it. The gold was buried, awaiting… (pause)

bb:

Harvest?

—-

bb:

GNIRPS, hehe, isn’t working tonight? What of GNIRPS?

Hucka D.:

Lisa the V. set up with her unlimited wallet, er, purse. Bottomless, I meant.

bb:

And this has to do with Carrcass-1.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Skillet. Skillet Swamp. Green Oz Creek. Wallace. Wallace3. Stares into hole. Greenup, but Yellow Down at the same time. Green Oz is bourne. Wallace.

bb:

Is Wallace an older community than Tinsity?

Hucka D.:

Two in one. Foreign one.

bb:

I’m sensing you cannot answer that quite yet.

Hucka D.:

You have a sign set up on the main path of the area: Tinsity that-a-way. Tinsity directly ahead, 0.2 miles. The sign will be created. At the tree. Sign Tree.

bb:

The Tinsity trail, from this direction, passes through Dark Space. What is the purpose of Dark Space?

Hucka D.:

Barrier. Is Tinsity aligned with Dark Space or not? We don’t know yet. Back to Gold…

—–

bb:

Tinsity is also going to be the name of the last Carrcass, Hucka D. Technically I suppose you would call this one Carrcass-10. But Carrcass-8, Carrcass-9, and Carrcass-10 make a triptych of audiovisual collages, much like the triptych ending the Latona series. Those were collages 8 9 and 10 as well.

Hucka D.:

Carrcasses, a blog term after all, will be seen as a set beginning in “0” and ending in “10”. 8, 9, and 10 will form a collage. The names will be Eight Ball, Number 9, and Tinsity. You start thinking of Tinsity collage as you are exploring Tinsity city in Herman Park at the same time. No chance.

—–

bb:

Do I keep VWX Town around this winter?

Hucka D.:

No.

—–

bb:

Communication between me and the co-worker will start to become limited now, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

As it is.

bb:

He is Tin S. Man.

Hucka D.:

*You* are Tin S. Man. You both are.

bb:

So Tin S. Man… me as the boss of sorts, has his castle still, Hucka.

Hucka D.:

Not saying nothing.

bb:

I’ll have to get [another] student worker. I can’t work there alone.

Hucka D.:

No.

But back to Green Oz: I believe Wallace3, staring into the hole, saw Greenup and Yellow Down simultaneously. This is like playing a movie both forwards and backwards at once.

Bedrock Mystery

Pictured to the left is a spot that kept my interest high. This bedrock crack payed me 55 chunky pieces of gold in one pan within the area circled. That’s only about a foot in length. I chased the crack further toward mid-stream but it didn’t pay as well as it did within the circled area.

I’m counting 9 rocks now on Michael’s rock table, with Hucka Doobie’s impressive yellow quartz formation [LINK] still missing. Where did it go??

The central, dark object is just a piece of projecting bark, but doesn’t it look like some kind of unlit, foreboding spirit from this angle?

Rock below Michael Too giving the appearance of a log; in fact, I thought it was a log upon first glace. Log Rock it is, then. Might be connected with VWX Town’s Big Log pictured in the blog post below this. Big Log = BLog?
