Science confirming observation.

The calculation has been discovered to show how much exotic matter is required to stabilize macroscopic traversable wormholes. Enough to transmit information in the form of light pulses.

Now if they can only confirm that the wavelength of light being use is greenish in color.

It depends on the observer's perspective.  
Blue shift or red shift.  But no green shift.

Turns out the picture is a painting of Dhumavati.  The following is from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhumavati) with boldeness added by me to add emphasis to  things.

Dhumavati is said to manifest herself at the time of cosmic dissolution (pralaya) and is "the Void" that exists before creation and after dissolution. While Dhumavati is generally associated with only inauspicious qualities, her thousand-name hymn relates her positive aspects as well as her negative ones. She is often called tender-hearted and a bestower of boons. Dhumavati is described as a great teacher, one who reveals ultimate knowledge of the universe, which is beyond the illusory divisions, like auspicious and inauspicious. Her ugly form teaches the devotee to look beyond the superficial, to look inwards and seek the inner truths of life.

Dhumavati is described as a giver of siddhis (supernatural powers), a rescuer from all troubles, and a granter of all desires and rewards, including ultimate knowledge and moksha (salvation). Her worship is also prescribed for those who wish to defeat their foes. Dhumavati's worship is considered ideal for unpaired members of society, such as bachelors, widows, and world renouncers as well as Tantrikas. In her Varanasi temple, however, she transcends her inauspiciousness and acquires the status of a local protective deity. There, even married couples worship her. Although she has very few dedicated temples, her worship by Tantric ritual continues in private in secluded places like cremation grounds and forests.

The second photo is the yantra (mystical diagram) of Dhumavati, used in her worship.   Reminds me of ADAs symbol.

Next Anomaly Series

#13Magnus  brought the shadowy organisation to light, and resulted in the rebirth of the XM sensitive, +Roland Jarvis.

#Recursion  indicated a cyclic loop of repetition, describing +Hank Johnson's struggles as well as the ancient repetition of the battle between light and dark, knowledge and ignorance, with darkness prevailing in that instance.

#Interitus  represented the end of an era, ruin and destruction, and with the rise of +Klue S. as KlADA, and the strengthening of ADA's position, we have certainly stepped onto that dark path.

#Helios  may represent a rebirth.  The god Helios brought the dawn each day, and as the Titan god of sight and light, brought light to the dark places.  One of his major threats to Zeus during the Odessy was that he would "shine light into Hades", illuminating all of the darkness and evil there.

For the modern age, I think this #Helios  anomaly series represents a new age of #Enlightement .  Months ago, a rumoured "millons of new agents" was considered a threat by the darkness that is the NIA.   #Helios  may represent the coming of those new agents, ushering in a new age of discovery, increased access to XM, greater cooperation and investigation.  Perhaps even +Devra Bogdanovich will step back from the edge and put more trial and investigation into her "XM vaccine" or "world destroying poison", before release on a worldwide scale.

A new light in the darkness that Recursion and Interitus brought.

We are going to need a lot more Enlightened agents. With ADA having the power now to inject its commands and motivations into more and more human minds, the "Resistance" grows ever more useful a group of tools for ADA's goal of eliminating Humanity as a threat to ADA.

Hmm. So the new anomaly is called #Helios. Incidentally coupled with the (Hel-)iOS release.

Regardless, am I the only one who played Deus Ex? No? Remember the name of the (rogue) A.I.? Righr. Helios. And then there were the Illuminati (Enlightened). Anyone else smelling similarities? And maybe the third faction?

Nice find, +Christina Wrenegade!

You might find this videp useful in your search. Ingress Year One, Part 1 | INGRESS REPORT: http://youtu.be/uhp2awQYLos

You are correct, Ingress is not just a game. Things are getting more interesting in this week's episode of Ingress Obsessed. Ingress Obsessed 4 - Christina Invades Google: http://youtu.be/pFfR2ns-9Xw

We are only just beginning to venture down the rabbithole

+Susanna Moyer I don't know what ADA has planned, but I hope if there are robots, its gonna be all transformers and shit blasting toads err deceptishapers all over the place with lots of collateral damage fighting over the energon I mean XM cubes and the Resistance are like the Witwickys just going along for the ride in our own bumblebees and optimus primes 🚛💨 ✊ #weareawake #imhungry #saveferris

+Susanna Moyer  its seams your responses are coming in and they are all very much alike.  No human wants to empower someone or something to take control of them.  They are going to be watching closely and monitoring the situation to adjust their actions to prevent mental domination.  I'd like to ask you where do you stand?  What intentions do your father and azmati have and are they possibly aligned with +Devra Bogdanovich?  Are you seeking allies with your #IngressReport shout out?  Do you need more help or just video confirmation of what you suspected?  I as well as the other agents you called out look forward to your response on the matter.

So today on the ingress report I noticed a message being delivered to us via glyphs.  I am currently trying to get the message figured out and will post that in the future.  However I am having trouble with a few glyphs.  Are they new or have our scanners been wrong on some of them?  The second one looks like Soul / Spirit / Life Force however it misses the node on the right.  Let's see if we can figure these out.

A connection between the anomaly series -

The Solar cycle is 11 years.
#Helios  

Notice that 11 x 11 x 11 = 1331
#Interitus  

This is connected to the pascal triangle too:
1
11
121
1331

Which is connected to the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio
http://www.goldennumber.net/pascals-triangle/
#Recursion  


Coincidence or not?

I wonder if this could be extended and ordered in some fashion?
11^0 = 1 -> Cassandra
11^1 = 11 -> 13Magnus
11^2 = 121 -> Recursion
11^3 = 1331 -> Interitus
11^4 = 14641 -> Helios

This weeks hidden images.  I was not able to do my normal image search this week.  I need your help.  There may be more hidden images in this weeks report similar to this.  I think we need to find them all and put them together like a puzzle to see the "Big Picture".

Chaos comes. Who amongst you will join in the destruction of control, the destruction of both AI and extra-terrestrial influence? Who amongst you will fly the banner of humanity, nay, of transhumanism?

We will take the knowledge of ADA, the gift of the Shapers, and carve a new way. Our way.

The new path is I'm front of us. The true way, unfolds.

The more eyes the better.
Brent Werlein originally shared:
 
  So while watching last week’s Ingress Report I noticed glyphs appear over a section of the video.  I got screenshots of all of them and decided to see if I could find a message.  Below is my transcript along with the transcript each caption.  Now I must warn you it could be wrong (captured during a transition and the glyph is at wrong sentence, read in the wrong direction, etc) and pieces could be missing as I did not grab the glyphs that were shown during +Roland Jarvis' speach. Oh yea, and I became dazed as I was doing this and would incorrectly spell Separate in the pictures as seperate, sorry about that :S   I hope that others Reading this can decipher the message better than I can.  My brain needs a cool down period.

I have also created a Doc with all this information so that as we get things figured out the document can be updated.  Enjoy
