"I believe that they [the depiction of the N'Zeer] were their hallucinations of the Julian Jaynes variety which interrupted the thought stream and entered our culture through memory." +Hank Johnson​​​

Likely the Shapers and N'Zeer are hallucinations, the first effect of XM on our minds, regression a few thousand years to this belief of deities which manifest as a commanding voice...

"According to Jaynes, ancient people in the bicameral state of mind would have experienced the world in a manner that has some similarities to that of a schizophrenic. Rather than making conscious evaluations in novel or unexpected situations, the person would hallucinate a voice or "god" giving admonitory advice or commands and obey without question: one would not be at all conscious of one's own thought processes per se. Research into "command hallucinations" that often direct the behavior of those labeled schizophrenic, as well as other voice hearers, supports Jaynes's predictions."

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_Jaynes
 
To build on the Jaynesian theory offered recently by +The First & Foremost -- the following video may furnish some insight into why the majority chooses to vilify the bicameral effect we term "Shapers" -- simply because "They" are not "telling" us what we wish to hear.  "They" would thus represent our minds' ability to recognize the unpleasant truth that our manner of life -- that which we call "civilization" -- as we know it is unsustainable.  Like a child lashing out against the rules (and punishment for breaking them) the majority vilify the "Shaper" message hoping if they demonize it enough it will self-immolate on the stake of our rejection and cease to be anything of real concern.

"I never thought it would get this far... but we have reached the point of no return. Either Jarvis’ appearance is part of an elaborate stunt that was somehow able to deceive multiple witnesses who saw it live, or we have just ventured into a realm of reality that until yesterday did not exist. Klue has the details... " - PAC

“I am not dead.” That’s the message Roland Jarvis wanted us to know, P.A. That is... if you believe what happened is real. Many people had already commented on this being an image of Cupid’s Span in San Francisco. And now we know the crashed jet in the center referenced a childhood story that Jarvis related to ADA. This implies that Tycho wasn’t only drawing the future... but the past, as well. And if Jarvis really was dead as we uncovered when we looked at Zurich, but is now, well... not... What was he trying to tell us? Was his message even for us? “My name is Roland Jarvis. I am not dead. Prepare for enlightenment.” Is that a warning? A threat? Maybe even a greeting. And what if this was directed back at Niantic? What if Jarvis was issuing a challenge to them? We’ve seen what Niantic and the NIA are capable of doing to protect themselves and their little secrets.

Okay, a few more things bother me about these videos. Besides the obvious, which is... Is this real? Is this actually happening? But let’s take a deep breath on that for a moment. There is something missing. The last line. An empty set of braces. Something’s missing. What is Jarvis trying to tell us? P.A., what is the one thing that we fear about death? The unknown. And what is enlightenment? To have knowledge. Hold that thought. Until now, until today... we were born, we live, and then we die. What controls that cycle? Time. During this investigation, you’ve documented that people who have been influenced by XM are seeing the future...and the past. But what if they’re not? What if they’re visualizing the present at a different moment in time? And if time is malleable, then, what even controls our existence? I mean, for Jarvis, what if in the moment of his death, there was no “moment”? Oh, and one more thing. Why this portal out of all of the possible portals across the world? Why did Jarvis choose this one? If he did, in fact, choose it. Now everyone knows that Cupid was the god of desire. Shoot that golden arrow through my heart, etcetera... But what most people don’t know is that his mother Venus wanted him to shoot Psyche, a mortal girl who she was jealous of. The reason? So that Psyche would fall madly in love with the most vile creature you’ve ever seen. The Cupid myth is more about deception and manipulation than love. Now, think about the so-called Shapers as you look at Cupid’s Span. Where is the arrow pointing? Directly to Earth. Please, P.A., tell me I’m wrong. That’s it. We are being asked to choose a side - to become Enlightened or to resist what is coming... And what exactly is coming? The Shapers? Niantic is no longer in control - if they ever were. And is there any doubt that being on the wrong side of all of this means consequences we can’t imagine?" - Klue

The images don't quite fit. Azmati and Hank? Conrad and Hank? Or is this something new altogether?

Hi this is agent 46biscuit. And I had a good idea for something's to add. Maybe ingress could add away to chat with friends in ingress like another comm that says friend and all you have to do to add friend is to long press on the agents name and have the option to add them into the friend chat

The comm function in-app sucks.. Great idea, but I don't think NIA could handle it. Better use HO.

Earth is experiencing an ongoing geomagnetic storm that started on June 22 due to the arrival of an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection, or CME, from a minor solar flare on June 20. As a result, aurora were sighted in several mid-latitude locations, including Virginia, in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1LBSkKx

Is +Hank Johnson​ a basket case?



"Basket Case"
Green Day
(sensitives who likely achieved enlightenment via HM herbal matter)

Do you have the time
To listen to me whine
About nothing and everything
All at once
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Am I just stoned?

I went to a shrink
To analyze my dreams
She says it's lack of --x
That's bringing me down
I went to a w----
He said my life's a bore
So quit my whining cause
It's bringing her down

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Uh, yuh, yuh, ya

Grasping to control
So I better hold on

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Am I just s----d?

#mufg #replication

Just thought I share my experiences with the MUFG capsules.

First replication encountered in a MUFG with Keys, after 24 hours one of the four keys duplicated.

This morning a lot more happened in my incubators:

40 AXAs => 41 AXA after about 60 hours
90 VRS => 92 VRS after about 60 hours
50 PC8 => 52 PC8 after about 36 hours
70 ADA => 71 ADA after just 10 hours

No change in the incubator with the Jarvisses, no new key duplication yet.

Seems rather random to me.

Mine has 75 VR items of various types. After 24 hours it generated a Jarvis. After 48 it generated nothing new, but after 72 it generated a Jarvis and an AXA together.

This small dialogue between Calvin and Azmati also pertains to +Tycho C.​​​'s upcoming comic.

There are many comments on the original thread clearly stating a wide variety of opinion on who's to blame.

I wonder if the comic will tell us more or only validate that which we already believe, on all sides of the matter.
 
"CALVIN: The Age of the N’zeer is upon us, Azmati.  The balance will be returned.
AZMATI: Do you know the implications of what you’re saying?  Do you know what they will bring?
CALVIN: Order. Clarity. Truth."

Been having a little trouble with my HTC One M8 after the 1.76 update.
Everytime I need to raise the (back, home, windows) buttons, the Comm opens with it and makes it quite hard to access the button and to take screenshots when needed and if I close the Comm, they close with it.
I'd be very gratefull if that could be fixed, because I didn't have that issue before the 1.76 update. +Ingress+Linda Besh+Niantic Project​

Training a Conversational Engine

Advances in end-to-end training of neural networks have led to remarkable progress in the fields of speech recognition, computer vision, and language processing. But can neural networks also allow one to have a productive conversation with a computer?

In A Neural Conversational Model, a paper being presented in the Workshop on Deep Learning at the 2015 International Conference on Machine Learning (http://icml.cc/2015/), Google Research Scientists +Oriol Vinyals and Quoc V. Le present a simple approach for conversational modeling that allows the model to remember facts, understand contexts and perform common sense reasoning, all with fewer hand-crafted rules.

Read the full paper at http://goo.gl/f05SjL, and check out a summary by Bloomberg, linked below, to learn more.

Even more curious. 

Just as the Shonin event had two coronal mass ejections (CME) happen during its time, NASA is now tracking the second related G4 CME to the time frame of the Persepolis event. This will impact our planet this evening.

At 1823 UT (12:23 PM EDT), the active region that produced the event hitting Earth right now erupted again. A long duration x-ray flare reached R2 (Moderate) Radio Blackout levels, as seen in the accompanying GOES Solar X-Ray Imager picture. Thus, users impacted by solar flares and users ...
