Which Came 1st: The Dr. or the Blood? September 15, 2009

bb:

Hucka D., I have a number of reasons to believe this man and a road he built in the early 1800s in northwest Pennsylvania represents what we’ve been calling Dr. Blood, at least in part. First we have a Mr. [Cyrus] Blood — not a dr., though… I’ll get to that in a minute — whose name in this book is connected to what would eventually become Corsica, Pennsylvania. It was there he discovered that, despite a prearranged deal, no road had been blazed to his new home, Blood Settlement, in Forest County to the north. So he cut one himself; cut may be involved in this tangle as well, since when one gets cut, one bleeds.

I think the “dr.” in Dr. Blood perhaps is not a doctor but a *drive*. It’s not Dr. Blood but Blood Dr. Drive like a road. Or perhaps the fact that Blood was obviously driven to found a new county. In my American Heritage dictionary, there are two definitions of “Dr.”, with “Drive” being the second.

Hucka D.:

It’s both: Blood Dr. and Dr. Blood. Thought I’d fill you in before you get too far in forgetting the doctor part. Peter.

bb:

Appropriate quote, then:

Cyrus Blood was the pioneer of Forest County. He brought his family into this wilderness in 1833. For years his farm was called the ” Blood settlement.” When he settled there the region was full of panthers, bears, wolves, wild-cats, and deer. Mr. Blood was a powerful man, of great energy and courage. He was well educated and a surveyor….

Ambitious to found a county, Cyrus Blood made several visits into this wilderness, and finding that the northern portion of Jefferson County was then an almost unbroken wilderness, he finally purchased a tract of land on which Marienville is now located, and decided to make his settlement there.

It was understood when Mr. Blood purchased in Jefferson County from the land company that a road would be opened into it for him. In 1833, when Mr. Blood arrived where Corsica now is, on the Olean road, he found, to his annoyance, that no road had been made. Leaving his family behind him, he started from what was then Armstrong’s Mill, now Clarington, with an ox team, sled, and men to cut their way step by step through the wilderness twelve miles to his future home. Every night the men camped on and around the ox sled. When the party reached Blood’s purchase, a patch of ground was cleared and a log cabin reared. In October, 1833, Mr. Blood and his five children took possession of this forest home….

The pioneer path or trail was opened by Cyrus Blood from Clarington to Blood’s settlement. This was in the year 1833. The pioneer road was this ” path” widened and improved by Blood several years later.

The road was cut from Clarington at the southern edge of the forest wilderness to Blood Settlement, now called Marienville. Today, Highway 899 follows the old path. Suspiciously again, the only Highway 899 community marked between Clarington and Marienville on these two township maps…

… is Redclyffe, red like the color of blood. And perhaps the next closest marked community to this road between beginning and end, Roses [near Marienville], is another name traditionally assoc. with this color. There’s more I could add here, but I’ll stop at that. What say you Hucka D. the Bee?

Hucka D.:

If so, there will have to be two dr.s overlapping each other but still separate. Another mobius strip like paradox, like your Klein Bottle situation with the sinks on the Corsica continent, perhaps.

bb:

I had to cut that road of associations as well, beginning with the realization of the Corsica-Pennsylvania overlay. And this realization was perhaps directly triggered by the fact that Corsica, Pennsylvania itself had already been mentioned in this blog.

Hucka D.:

You better look at that again Dr. Blood, ahem, I mean baker b. And remember the Rubi Forest-Corsica Island Forest overlap. Diagonal and all; red as blood. More recently reinforced in other ways as well. Look for where various paths cross. Where do they point?

bb:

And also there would be a reason one might call it Dr. Blood instead of Blood Dr., since, if the above model is correct, Dr. Blood is simply Blood Dr. turned inside out, like the walls of a Klein Bottle would be inside-out [in respect] to each other above, upon contact with the 2 Corsica sinks.

Hucka D.:

This is where SL begins to end, beyond the beginning of the end, actually. Believe I said that already.

bb:

This reaches back into the past from the future, I think. Blood Road was actually formed because of Blood Drive in the future.

Hucka D.:

And Dr. Blood. Don’t forget the good doctor.

 

Chattering…

“Peter wishes to speak in prose now apparently.”

bb:

He’s already said good night and good day to me, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

And more to come.

bb:

No use in wondering, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

The title of the Petemond blog will be “Uniko, Da.”

bb:

“Uniko, Da.” That’s not too bad, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

The language of synchronicity, of collage.

bb:

Yes, I see.

Hucka D.:

Fascinating that “i” turns to “y” here, eh?

bb:

Well… a whole world there.

Hucka D.:

That’s the point.

bb:

What about Azure Islands? Did Baker Bloch drown in the Linden Memorial Island stream to be reborn on his 1/4th tropical sim?

Hucka D.:

Yes. He became Wanna MacWoopie.

bb:

Interesting name. Now he, and I through him, want to “scrub” AA, as we’ve said, to make Devil God and evil good.

Hucka D.:

Castor and Pollution. Already a blog link, actually. I think.

bb:

I can’t find it, Hucka D., although I noticed it’s been made into one of those Zazzle mugs, like already used in “Max…”

Hucka D:

The blog must be scrubbed. Soap is needed.

bb:

We’re fast approaching the end of section 19, Hucka D. Started off slow but has really picked up steam in September with the Corsica continent related material.

Hucka D.:

Not over yet. Peter must move to prose — to be understood — and you must move toward poetry. Through Peter. Or Petemond.

bb:

Returning to Sunklands for a moment, if I can…

Hucka D.:

Certainly.

bb:

Ok, now originally we, or I, thought Petemond was in Sunklands on the Jeogeot continent. But I couldn’t figure out where. On the hill above the sinks? — say near Arrowtown [sim]? — or, well, I suppose I decided it had to be on the hill above the sinks instead of inside the sinks.

Hucka D.:

Now you know better. Centre… Centreville. Deserted town. Village Green. 2 minutes wide in every direction. Center of Second Life which is Kansas City Life. Seed.

bb:

This is also where Karoz’s Fuchsia Diamond came from.

Hucka D.:

Uniko, Da.

bb:

Alright, then. So I suppose Peter took… how did Karoz get from Corsica to Jeogeot or visa versa?… and how does Maebaleia figure into this? Lots of continents Karoz is visiting in the past/future all of a sudden. Is this possible?

Hucka D.:

More than that: it actually happened. Karoz has his limiting circle, no? It’s centred around the Noru properties. He’s like a dog tied to a stake in someone’s backyard. That’s why you had to come in; between the two of you, you split the Korean Channel in two through the sacred “E”, or what Karoz sees from his direction as a “Big Schwa.” Why? Because this is Chilbo influenced, this circle of his. You are beyond Chilbo though… Baker Bloch, I mean. Karoz, in the middle of this channel, magically finds himself transported, then, to Maebaleia and the Blue Feather Sea. He symbolically takes the Big e/Big schwa with him. Crabwoo, however, is found unsuitable to live in or own a gallery in. Yet at one time it was different. Karoz had his jeweler’s shop there. And at that time he found Rubisea and the depot to other star systems.

bb:

Sirius?

Hucka D.:

And further. Lyra. Vega.

bb:

Ashville?

Hucka D.:

A triangle confining black and white. Good and evil. Castor and Pollution. Bridge separates the two.

bb:

Karoz became absorbed?

Hucka D.:

Yes. We were all there, though. Remember?

bb:

You were plastic, more 3d.

Hucka D.:

That was right after Dr. Blood had finished operating and sewn up his patient. Good work baker b.

bb:

We were more real at the time. Now we’re flat-ish again. More 2d. I don’t have descriptions accompanying my text any more.*

Hucka D.:

So you understand you must return.

(to be continued?)

* googled “large hole small hole” for images and quickly came up with this jug. Thinking now that the 2 sinks in Corsica, one large and one small, are related the Klein bottle (or jug): they are actually part of one object that “passed through” or is passing through Corsica Prime.

Ol’ Runn’n Baker…

Interesting art gallery called “Scarpyland!” in the Pennyroyal sim of Gaeta. Baker briefly ponders renting land near this sim and its dominating, cool gallery, but quicky puts it out of his mind. Still, Pennyroyal is right in the center of the second (from the east) knobby region of Gaeta, and Baker likes to live in the center of things. But… no. A place to add as a landmark and that’s it. I think.

The next day Baker Bloch runs the entire circumference of the 9 sim Linden Memorial Park Island just north of Corsica Prime. If you haven’t been to this island yet, here’s a bit more info about it. Also this LDPW entry. Very accomplished landscaping here, especially in the northeast part, or, specifically, the Rookwood and Toowong sims. The Lindens call that particular area the Forest of the Past on their provided map.

Baker crosses a variety of bridges in his run around the island, each having unique qualities.

Blochs pauses at the end of his run to look at several birds flying overhead, as well as briefly visiting with a frog located on edge of the rock he’s standing upon. Only the very top part of the frog is visible in the photo below.

In uploading the pictures chosen for this particular post, I got the idea that Baker may have at least pretended to drown in that stream at the end of his run, only to surface, reborn, on Azure Islands once again, specifically a new archipelago composed of homestead sims that I’ve also talked about in other posts now. So perhaps pencil this in as a Karoz-Jeogeot/Maebaleia type switch between otherwise distance points on the Linden grid.
