“I think the theme of this one, Hucka D., is that there’s rarely a sunny day in Borrowdale. What do you think?”

Hucka D.:

Sudden rain, sudden flood. Doesn’t the being in the octagon enclosure looked shocked?

bb:

We’re going to pretend that some missing elements from this collage draft are already there, Hucka D., since they’ll be added in tomorrow. This would include the black and white Beatles playing in the middle of the road behind the octagon being, and then the demon in the dark window from Wheeler 08, appearing here in the leftmost barn door to the right in the collage — the ones the water is pouring out of. Self prophecy may be in effect here…

Hucka D.:

Right. Negative thinking. To put a sign up like that encourages the rainy weather itself. Self fulfilling.

bb:

Hucka D., I think this also has to do with the new BROOK idea. I believe the stream of the picture is the BROOK in a way. The hummingbird moves upstream here, away from the apparently surprised octagon being with the hummingbird shape embedded in the octagon cover. Most of these images have occurred before — the octagon and eyeballed being within is from Greenup 12 and also Greenup 20. The hummingbird is common in the last part of the Greenup series as well. The Arkansas flag stars are also from Greenup 20. Greenup 12 itself is set in Stonethewaite in the Lake District as is this one. This strongly relates, then, to Greenup 12 especially, but also Greenup 20. We don’t have the John Elway figure repeating from Greenup 12, above the octagon being there, but we have another John, Lennon this time, directly above this figure.

Hucka D.:

Something unexpected has come into Stonethwaite: flood. It threatens, perhaps, to wash the octagon being away, perhaps even the whole town. But probably, if anything, just the octagon being/person. The “D” letter has also appeared in a number of places in the 10×10, now. Most immediately, the very last collage, Jasper 07 (“It’s up to us now.”) and again from a sports related setting. The “D” in Jasper 07 stands for Detroit, though [Tigers; baseball team]; this one in Jasper 08 stands for Denver [Broncos; football team]. The “D” is in Greenup 12 as well, and there it’s obviously related to the John Elway figure, Elway being probably the most famous Bronco player of all time. Both the single “D” in Jasper 08 and the multiple “D”s of Jasper 07 are set within the outlines of dark blue diamond shapes. “D” stands for diamond as well, then. (pause). The martin flag of Jasper 07 is also obviously related to the flag of Jasper 08. The flag of 07 hangs from a [diamond willow] walking stick; the flag of 08 hangs from a telephone line running across its central street. Both flags hang vertically.

bb:

After being “up in the air” in Jasper 07, though, we are solidly back on the ground for Jasper 08. Back in the Lake District, as we were in Jasper 05 and 06. But now where it all started for the 10×10: Greenup Gill. For the stream flooding the streets of Stonethwaite here is from a picture of the flooded Stonethwaite Beck, where it forms from the confluence of Langstrath Beck and Greenup Gill at the ______ bridge. Let me check quickly on that fact.

*****

bb:

Well, I can’t quite find the location of that bridge, Hucka D., but it’s certainly close to this confluence.

Hucka D.:

At least close enough to call the two barn doors here the respective Greenup Gill and Langstrath Beck that combine to form Stonethwaite Beck. So is this like the formation of Silver from Green and Red?

bb:

Could be. Maybe I should color the doors such [green and red].

Hucka D.:

But now we know that BROOK is also associated with Greenup Gill. I wonder if the door with the demon smelling the flower is the Greenup Gill door. I would think it is, instead, the Langstrath Beck door — more water flows from it [Langstrath Beck is considerably larger than Greenup Gill at this confluence].

bb:

That would make sense, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

But back to BROOK… the hummingbird moving upstream mirrors the same which first appears in the 10×10 in Greenup 13, the one after the Stonethwaite setting in Greenup 12. The two hummingbirds are obviously the same bird. In Greenup 13, we are moving back into the Greenup Gill area after briefly visiting the Stonethwaite village. The same might be happening here. In Greenup 13, I believe the two beds of the collage stand for Langstrath Beck and Greenup Gill as well, the two sources of Stonethwaite Beck.

bb:

Interesting that the stream and the roads of the town become one and the same in Jasper 08, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Interesting, also, that the hummingbird of Greenup 13 faces toward the giant eyeball, where in Jasper 08 he faces away from it. But in Greenup 13, unlike the present collage, a jewel fills in for the pupil, an Alexandrite gem to be precise. Alexandrite appears green in natural light and red in artificial light.

bb:

In looking closer at Greenup 12, Hucka D., I believe that the miniature version of Stonethwaite village in the middle of the road of the, er, macro-version of this same village might be like the Stonethwaite Beck in the road of Jasper 08. Both are similarly colored and in the road, I mean. Both are named Stonethwaite.

Hucka D.:

Interesting observation. Also important to point out that the bluish hummingbird seems directly related to the martin of Greenup 12., which has also just appeared in the Jasper series as well [martin flag of Jasper 07].

bb:

The number 08 of Jasper 08 may relate to the central octagon figure within the collage as well.

Hucka D.:

We also have the phrase “Coack K” in both, with K directly related to D in each as well. This kind of image first appears in Greenup 08, although the actual Coach K (Duke coach image) appears even earlier in the 10×10 and the Greenup series. In Greenup 08, we are on the Greenup Gill, moving down into Stonethwaite village. There are two types of movements in the Greenup series, one from the north and one from the south. The center is that mound shown in Greenup 05 and Greenup 06, but also symbolized in other places… perhaps too difficult to explain here, hmmmm…

bb:

The hummingbird, directly related to the martin, represents the number 09 beyond 08, wouldn’t you think, though? As we have in the Billfork diagram.

Hucka D.:

Billfork diagram… trying to remember what that was. Wasn’t that from Floydada?

bb:

Yeah… mentioned within.

The hummingbird/martin is violet, 09, beyond orange, 08. We must follow this bird upstream again, like we did between Greenup 12 and Greenup 13. We must move away from Stonethwaite and orange and “D”, again, Hucka D. The Other.

Hucka D.:

Otherland.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., I think I need to deal, again — as well — with the Jigkansawyers of the Greenup series. The jigsaw piece of the Greenup Gill.

Hucka D.:

Parrot. Rydal.

bb:

In Greenup 17 we also have the confluence of Frank/Mossman/Heman and Herman Parks. “You’re a Herman Mossman” is the actual title. This would be around the same location or setting as Greenup 13. The hummingbird reappears, fluttering in front of another open hole, this time a cave. Meramec Cave… Amereca.

Hucka D.:

BROOK. Lost Valley. BROOK. B…ROOK.

bb:

This cave has a back door, though. Leading back to the very center of the Greenup Gill valley. Mound.

Hucka D.:

BROOK. Mound. Center.

bb:

Perhaps a flood in Greenup 17 as well.

Hucka D.:

We better end.

bb:

Thank you.

 

Chatting; D.

“Hucka D., we almost had to use Microsoft Word for our chat this morning.”

Hucka D.:

You found BROOK. Good for you.

bb:

I know where BROOK is, yes. Need to tell Cammie.

Hucka D.:

Yes. And apologize. You are such an insensitive bastard sometimes (smiles).

bb:

I know. Sorry.

Hucka D.:

Tell Cammie.

bb:

Thanks anyway… but I guess that was [delete name].

Hucka D.:

Yes. (smiles again) Delete name.

bb:

The next collage will be about BROOK, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You had to know about that first before you could proceed.

bb:

What about Otherland vs. Mainland.

Hucka D.:

I already told you that Otherland had to go. You must rent from now on. Focus on rl and, especially, photography and hiking. BROOK.

bb:

I’m using the 4096 lot as a temporary sandbox before giving the land back. Didn’t even realize before that you can’t resell the land yourself. This is different from Azure Islands. If I buy estate property again, it might be from AI, then.

Hucka D.:

You’ll rent from now on, unless you have a big project you want to test out on AI first. Nieth property is still available last time I checked.

bb:

Do you want to talk about Jasper 07 more.

Hucka D.:

I’d rather talk about Jasper 08. Encasement. 8. Octagon. Like Greenup 12 and Greenup 20. Tulips; pink. Communication. BROOK. BROOK is in the center of STREAM, CREEK, RIVER. Surprised you haven’t noticed that before, baker b. But such is the masking quality of BROOK. It doesn’t want to be noticed, except to those initiated in the mysteries.

bb:

It protects itself.

Hucka D.:

As delete name said, going during the day would be best. Lost Valley.

bb;

Martin is the 9th. M/N. Billfork Core Diagram. Z/A-D-G-J-M/N-Q-T-W-Z/A.

Hucka D.:

24 elements and thus not 26. Which can be split into two groups of 12.

bb:

Hucka D., in looking at Greenup 12, I think I might need to return to Stonethwaite for Jasper 08. Stonethwaite… Stonethrow… Gillsville. Gill. Greenup.

Hucka D.:

Pier’s. (pause) What is “The Other”, really?

bb:

Orange. Plane of Dingos. Denver. John. Lennon. [Elway.] Plains to see. Yoko. City. (pause) Delete name lived in Denver City, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

So did Tommy Dekker for a spell.

bb:

Oil business. Oyl.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., is Greenup Gill like the Lost Valley?

[Hucka D. does not answer.]

bb:

Alright. What does “all red” mean? In terms of hands especially, perhaps? Plain of Dingos; Plane of Foxes? (pause) Hucka D.?

[no answer.]

bb:

Hucka D., I also think BROOK may represent the tetractys, the Realm of Numbers. 1-10. TILE Creek is, then, A-Z. 26 elements. The tetratys extended through the 36-Triangle. Hucka D.?

[no answer.]

bb:

I have a feeling that Jasper 10, the animation to Jasper 01, may contain an Arkansas flag, or at least the 25 stars from that flag. The Otherland gallery, though, will be replaced by the state of Missouri, somehow. Show Me. Grassy. Newton-Jasper-Grassy. Where’s Grassy gone, Hucka D.? (pause).

Realm of Numbers on the Tyle Cube is represented by the orange 01 and the violet 00, Hucka D., if you’re still there at all. In Mythos history, it is Vinee and Sprurrel. Squirrel, like Skillet. Olive, Vinee, Sprurrel. 8-9-10, perhaps. Olive… Gold. Oklahoma. Skillet. Self.

Let’s see, The Other would be like Yoakum County, Texas, without the guiding violet of the martin bird. 8 that cannot proceed to 9. The 9th is the microcosm of the whole 8, though. M/N. MartiN.

Hucka D.:

Martin leads to the Lost Valley.
