The Far And Yd Influence of Carrcass-1

Filed under: Carrcass-1,Delphic Archipelago,Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Sapphire — baker Blinker @ 4:45 am

I’m going to attempt some words myself before bringing in Hucka D., perhaps, regarding this important subject.

Sapphire:

Hidden influence… gravity… hole.

bb:

Oh, you’re here already (!)

Sapphire:

Here to protect. Hucka D. sent me over.

bb:

Protect against what’s-out-there?

Sapphire:

That 36-circle — those 36-circles — are a game of Madagascar solitaire with the center removed. Hole.

bb:

ESBUM Michigan. Or just the UM part, then. Want to talk about ESBUM instead?

Sapphire:

Yes.

bb:

You want me to start, then?

Sapphire:

(no answer)

bb:

First off, this is not quite what I expected for this post. I wanted to give my overview of the Carrcasses… but Sapphire is instead directing me back to think of Esbum Michigan, an old avatar since deleted. First of this year… 2009 (is when it happened). Esbum is the carrcass, then?

Sapphire:

Yes?

bb:

Can I talk about Carrcass-2 and Carrcass-3 in any detail, Sapphire? Or will Hucka D. allow me to do so?

Sapphire:

(pause) He will let you speak of Esbum. Michigan.

bb:

Can I at least ask about the next Carrcass? Carrcass-4, I suppose.

Sapphire:

(no answer)

bb:

How about the Ancients? The original Ones of this blog. Missing Piece?

Sapphire:

Missing Piece is fine.

bb:

The 37th. Beyond the 36. Even to odd, then. The piece removed to start the play of game. The void center. The 37th piece of the old Temple of TILE. Removed from the temple and placed into Esbum’s Pond, turning it into a single pond, but almost immediately wiped off the grid. The whole Delphic Archipelago, Sapphire.

Sapphire:

She never got over this loss, as I understand it baker b. Then she herself was deleted.

bb:

We had to. She got out of control. Downward spiral and all.

Sapphire:

She has returned.

bb:

Odd… what do you mean by that?

Sapphire:

In order to go forward you must go backwards.

bb:

Are you talking about the progression of [carrcasses]?

Sapphire:

Meddletown is an answer.* A part of the path forward that also returns. You are at the center and must move backwards and forward at once. I am along the path as well.

bb:

Should I have… never mind.

Hucka D.:

I have arrived in time for dessert. Hello baker b.

bb:

That it for Sapphire?

Hucka D.:

Tonight maybe.

bb:

Why don’t you want me to speak about the subject I intended to tonight?

Hucka D.:

You can talk about anything you want to, baker b. It’s your blog. The Baker Blinker Blog. BB’s blog… make that bb’s blog.

bb:

(pause) I had so much to say… like it just evaporated…

Hucka D.:

Cat got your tongue[, then]?

bb:

Maybe I should just look over the Chilbo proposal… maybe return to this post later on.

Hucka D.:

You best look to Michigan and Kentucky. Back to roots. Source. Sapphire is correct… you are in the center and the way out is in both directions. It’s always, “what next?”, but in this case it’s also “what went on before?” You can’t keep mounting material after material in an endless fashion.

bb:

Is this the beginning of the end of the blog here, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

You have a plan.

bb:

Yes, a 7 year plan (for the blog).

Hucka D.:

Better shorten it (!)

bb (defending his claim):

I am a resident now, Hucka D. That counts (for something).

Hucka D.:

You know what I’m going to say.

bb:

Chilbo needs Korean Channel needs Sunklands needs Chilbo… what exactly does that mean, though?

Hucka D.:

I want to call in someone else but there’s no one left tonight. Greenup Yd perhaps? (calling): Greenup?

Greenup Yd:

Here. Beer. We’re. Steer. Clear. Cheers! Cheer, I meant. Mean. Clean. Meat. Wheat. Seat. Sofa. Cushion. Fall. Wiped. Clean. Ocean. Esbum. Michigan. Michigan.

bb:

Is Esbum Michigan inside, somehow, the Nascera continent, Greenup Yd?

Greenup Yd:

Fascinating GY. Yes.

bb:

At the Infohub?

Greenup Yd:

Water… ocean. Clean. game. Clear. Same. Sane. Ocean. Sane. Offer. Ocean. Sanity. Sanitized.

bb:

In the southern river, then?

Hucka D.:

We better end. Thank you all.

(to be continued?)

* Meddletown is apparently the same as the Meddledown sim of what I call Yd Island (pronounced: Wide Island). Interesting new development on that front for sure! I’ll talk soon about that.

 

Nascera Continent And Yd Island December 30, 2009

Filed under: Nascera Continent,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 10:41 am

The swath I originally traveled around Nascera Continent (1st photo below) in comparison with Yd Island spun 180 degrees (2nd photo below). Same dimensions and size, basically, or enough to make the association. An important clue is that the Rabbit Head of the Ratzenberger sim appears right side up if the island is rotated in this manner. If the association between Nascera and Yd Island here rings true, then the two bodies of water on Nascera can parallel the sea surrounding Yd Island. Vileness Fish has been claimed to be from the latter… Hucka D. will soon state that the 3 large catfish of the northern Nascera channel are the same as this fish, I believe.

Basically, we have an inner-outer relationship presented here. The two themed regions most involved in this resonance are the California modern (central region of Nascera, or what Hucka Doobie has called “California Dreaming”), and the fantasy themed region in south Nascera already associated with the white chess pieces of an 8×8 chessboard (rooks/king, w/ chessboard equaling 64 8×8 sims of Nascera as a whole).

The Hole just above a right side up Yd Island most likely figures into this as well, along with the Micro Hole on Yd Island itself. Get to all that soon hopefully!…

 

Nascera, Etc. 03

Filed under: Hucka D.,Sapphire,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 8:20 am

“Hucka D., if you don’t mind let’s start tonight with Constantinople.

Hucka D.:

Here’s Sapphire…

Sapphire:

The Residents come from Constantinople. The ones with the eyeball heads. The dominatrix group. Their world became the center world.

bb:

It’s been claimed in this blog that the game of Trivia Ratsuit was invented to counteract this “center world”, as you call it, turning, in effect, the all powerful Constantinople into the relatively harmless and inconsequential Istanbul. It has also been overlapped with The [Nautilus Continent] Hole.

Hucka D.:

The Hole was used to seal up that variant reality.

bb:

Thank you Hucka D. Was the game of Trivia Ratsuit played on Yd Island… wait, lemme ask a better question. Was *Yd Island* around in Roman Times, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.*

bb:

Technically, then, is it the oldest bit of SL?

Hucka D.:

You could say that.

bb:

The Hole is VILE during that time, before the Trivia Ratsuit game. There is no love inside.

Hucka D.:

There is *always* love inside. You didn’t look at Nish Mip’s post closely enough today, baker b. What is in the center?

bb:

Of the Atoll Continent? Of Heterocera?

Hucka D.:

Diamond.

bb (remembering):

Oh yes. Diamond. The Tetractys. Let me illustrate my thoughts at the time. (pause) Before I forget, Hucka D., I found another “Lemon”… a Pip Lemmon who runs the White on White Gallery in Ulyanovsk Oblast. Much like Lenin, then. Like Lemon, then, through Lennon. (pause). Perhaps interesting his top pick is the Crow’s Foot, Hucka D. (guessing Hucka D.’s thoughts): I know… go there.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Here t’is…

Hucka D.:

Fantastic. Love is…

bb:

Care to comment more, Hucka D.?

Hucka D. (repeating):

Love is…

bb:

I think the left image is the symbol of The Hole as it stands today. 10 sims worth of love. LOVE. The right image would be the warped image, where Constantinople rules the day. Not a good situation… corrected by Trivia Ratsuit, as we’ve determined.

Hucka D.:

Both diamonds. Two sides of one thing.

bb:

It seems — correct me if I’m wrong — that each tetractys wants to assert itself as dominant within this diamond. To the left, the Love tetractys is dominant. To the right, the Vile tetractys.

Hucka D.:

The right is not really a tetractys.

bb:

Only love can form as a tetractys, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Love, love, love. All you need is…

bb:

Each tetractys, shall we say, *must* have its dominant position on these two sides of the 7×4 diamond. (pause) This must have to do with Brazil’s flag and its diamond as well, according to [The Oracle].* And, um, it looks like Natha Neil Cornfield may have something to do with this??

Hucka D.:

He is from Diamond, indeed. Sapphire now?

bb:

Sure. Hi Sapphire.

Sapphire:

I will be (Saff Fire) Cornfield (pause).

bb:

Facebook?

Sapphire:

Yes. You will know more, then. You will know more about The Diamonds.

(to be continued?)

*****

* For example, toggle between this and this (once more). The Diamonds appear in Greenup 06 within the formerly dark tunnel. Certainly in one way this represents the song “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” appearing on the Sgt. Pepper album. The Beatles become Jigkansawyers.

 

Nascera, Etc. 02 December 29, 2009

“Cornfields’ gonna still attempt to own land in Nascera, Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

Sapphire is here, as you guessed.

Sapphire:

*I* will own land in Nascera, bb.

bb:

Hi Sapphire. Nice to meet you. You are discorporate, then?

Sapphire:

I am both. I come from Turquoise and will pass into Lapis and Lazuli. I am overall Azure.

bb:

Are you the same as Azure Island No. 1, the island that was just split up into many pieces — Lost, in effect?

Sapphire:

Hold on please (pause). You have found the Black Hole. Pass through it to return to Yd Island and Nautilus Continent.

bb:

You’re talking about the hole surrounded by Jeogeot sims, caddycorner to Mos Ainsley, then.

Sapphire:

1 becomes 3 becomes 6 becomes 10. Jeogeot to Yd Island and beyond.

bb:

But then Yd Island itself seems to have stabilized through the Micro Hole. Is that a correct term for it?

Sapphire:

(unpronounceable word here… Indian-sounding).

bb:

But it stabilized the, um, spinning of Yd Island?

Sapphire:

Yes. That’s why my parents must return.

bb:

Are they some of the supposed undead roaming around SL still… like Hucka Doobie himself?

Sapphire:

No.

bb:

The Micro Hole, as I’ll keep calling it, is made up of separate sections of 4-2-2.

Sapphire:

This is a 4096, a 2048, and a 2048. For a total of 8192. The Hole is a 141072, a 262144, and a 262144. For a total of 655360. The [Micro Hole] is 4-2-2. The Hole is 2-4-4. The [Micro Hole] is in another way lemon-lime-lime. The Hole is lime-lemon-lemon.

bb:

Greenup and yellow down, then.

Sapphire:

My parents must return to Meddletown, which is the same as Meddledown.

bb:

Does this have something to do with the Pink Floyd album Meddle?

Sapphire:

(no answer)

bb:

Lemme check my notes… (pause) I am unable to locate your parent’s place in Meddledown, Sapphire. Are they gallery owners (by chance)?

Sapphire:

Yes.

bb:

Is Yd Island a replacement for Azure Island No. 1?

Sapphire:

Eventually, yes. I am Azure Island No. 1 in space/time in past/present/future. Now I am Sapphire. I come from Turquoise and will pass into Lapis and Lazuli.

bb:

I was checking out your parent’s facebook accounts, Sapphire. Nathaniel or Natha Neil — these are the same, correct?

Sapphire:

Yes.

bb:

Let’s call him Natha Neil per the facebook account. Now can I talk about this hill where NN claims Turquoise turned into you, Sapphire? This seems to have occurred when you were 9 or 10 years old.

Sapphire:

I was struck by lightening when I was 9 or 10, yes. Broke into pieces… shards. Sapphire enabled me to become whole again. And then LL will come along soon enough. 3 in 1.

bb:

Why do your parents in SL claim that they are brother and sister in First Lyfe?

Sapphire:

Because they are from Second Lyfe and not First Lyfe.

bb:

What is the relation of Yd Island to Nascera?

Sapphire:

One had to be chosen over the other. My parents chose Yd Island because of the management of the [Micro Hole]. They had to be in Meddletown for this.

bb:

Are you familiar with the Meddle song, “One of These Days”. The reason I mention it is that the only lyrics are “One of these days I’m going to cut you into little pieces.” Sounds like the situation with Azure Island No. 1 now, Sapphire.

Sapphire:

Mmmmmm.

bb:

Is Vileness one of the 3 large catfish in Nascera’s northern body of water?

Sapphire:

He or she is all three. And they appear at (around) Yd Island. They are The Link.

Nascera Continent, Final? 08

Filed under: Nascera Continent — baker Blinker @ 4:38 am

Baker then moves to the northern water channel of the Nascera continent to complete his investigation of its underwater mysteries. No ruins found this time except for an old washer and 2 rimless tires in Teebard. Instead the story here is 3 huge “dread catfish” each domineering, as it were, one of the 3 current northern channel sims. As well as seeming markedly bigger than their southern channel counterparts (each is about 7-8 meters long), all 3 also have designated Linden names this time around, or, east to west, Gran’pappy (Sicstric sim), The Big Un (Leefmend), and Ol’ Granny (Teebard).

Ol’ Granny hovering above the washer and tires.

Then we have this littler, much friendlier catfish, so friendly he wears a permanent smile on his face. His species name, according to the description, is appropriately “Smiley”. And if you try to ride it, you don’t get chewed on instead! No individual name, though, unlike the huge, dread catfish of this channel. There may be several smileys in the northern channel — haven’t made a full search yet. Not sure about the southern channel either without checking.

A small wedge of land across the channel with a campfire, located in the very northeast corner of Nascera and continuing the A-frame themed region vegetation from the south.

A view toward Gran’pappy from the campfire using a 128 draw distance.

Gran’pappy (right) and The Big Un (left) in one shot.

Nascera Continent, Final, 07

Filed under: Nascera Continent — baker Blinker @ 4:34 am

Two isolated, broken pillars in Bluebells again. The school of fish circling the more upright of the two are, mysteriously, totally black and lacking in any detail whatsoever. Again, the thought crosses my mind: is this done on purpose? More on that later, perhaps.

Relationship of these 2 pillars with the wrecked ship in the center of Bluebells.

Then while Baker Bloch was walking around the area more, he came across a “Sunken Shrine” according to its description, this time in Corrigan to the immediate northwest of Bluebells. As you can tell, we have a relief sculpture in this case, although the presence of the similarly colored egg (animated color texture here) seems to indicate that this is the same river goddess found in more rounded form earlier — both hold the egg in their hand or hands. Both figures might also be chiseled out of the same type of green (sea?) rock as well.

Same figure on the back, but the egg is animated a bit differently — what is apparently the same range of colors physically moves *across* the egg instead of in time. That is, the color of the egg on what we’ll call the “front” of the shrine changes *as a whole* through the spectrum over time, while the one on the “back” already contains all the spectrum moving across its surface. Think I explained that correctly.

*Then* right after this Baker finds a Corrigan double to the more 3d statue of the goddess, but with lavender or periwinkle colored egg and eyes instead of the cyan color found in the otherwise duplicate Bluebells version. A bit later on, I also learn that two are positioned in different ways, with the Bluebells version facing directly west and the Corrigan version, in contrast, facing the seemingly odd angle of north by northeast. The Corrigan version also mysteriously lies on the border of two sims, Corrigan and Pixy. I”ll explain more theories about these various differences in an upcoming post.

Baker then attempts to ride one of the various species of large catfish circling around the ruins, and regrets his decision. As he also later learned, all of the larger catfish in the area will similarly gnaw on you if you attempt to sit on them or ride them. But somehow he emerges unbloodied and in relatively good shape, save for his shaken nerves.

Nascera, etc… December 23, 2009

Filed under: Nascera Continent,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 11:23 am

“We won’t be speaking for a number of days, Hucka D. Thought I’d check in before the gap.”

Hucka D. (jumping right in):

The Cornfields have at least temporarily decided not to own a house in California Dreaming. They were disappointed upon finding out that you cannot select the house you want in the region of your choice. Instead you have a house assigned “at random” by Linden Labs.

bb:

That is rather disappointing, if understandable. I think you want to say we need to talk them out of it still.

Hucka D.;

Their luck will be good in this matter. They are the new Adam and Eve and must shed their clothing to denounce the core teaching of St. Lemon of Troy. We must examine Adam and Lillith, instead. Lily White Lillith.

*****

bb:

What has the person we’ve been calling Peter have to do with Nascera, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Peter created Nascera. A town was sent.

bb:

Could the Elderglen transporter that Magellen Linden supposedly broke be connected to the stones (and apparent portal, also broke?) in Villeneuve? — both are portals?

Hucka D. (repeating himself):

A town was sent. Bill. Bill… fork.

bb:

Both number 8 stones.

Hucka D.:

You must remove the 37th to begin play of the game. Chess. Solitaire. Game. Missing Piece. Esbum. Michigan. Michigan.

bb:

Thank you.

 

Nascera Continent, Final? 06

Filed under: Nascera Continent — baker Blinker @ 3:33 am

Alven at 128,128,48. This is the default landing point upon a search for the Alven sim through the map tab of the SL viewer, its very center. Here Baker Bloch looks north after teleporting in.

Ivesleaf, the supposed “twin” (rook) of Alven, again at the default 128,128 landing point (127,128.32 to be precise) and looking in the same direction northward. You can toggle between the two pictures to see the variations, which mostly involve the vegetation. There’s also a path Baker lands on in Alven that doesn’t appear in Ivesleaf.

The same position in Alven but looking south now. This is just Baker Bloch turning in his tracks from snapshot 1 above.

And again the same in Ivesleaf from the center position. Toggle between the two snapshots as before.

Japanese themed region, once more. I like riding through *all* the themed regions on my bike except for the A-frame area, which seems a little dull in comparison to the others. Will try that out again soon, though.

More underwater finds just biking around at random on Nascera, this time in Corrigan. In the description it’s called a “Sunken Shrine,” but to what goddess or deity? Is it the same river goddess as found in Bluebells earlier by Baker Bloch? They’re located in the same river after all, and holding what appears to be the same type of glowing blue orb.

Could those orbs have something to do with *these* orbs (found nearby)??

I’m really starting to think that marbles are actually indicated in a larger picture.

Nascera Continent, Final? 05

Filed under: Nascera Continent — baker Blinker @ 3:28 am

The remains of a wrecked ship in the very center of Bluebells that Baker didn’t provide a picture of before. Is the alignment with the sim’s center perhaps purposeful here?

Inside of another model home in Elderglen. A couple of freebies available within, namely a wizard’s hat and a spell book.

Lily pad bespeckled pond in the northeast corner of Elderglen. The two frogs positioned atop one of the lily pads are the same species as the singlet pictured within the Elderglen Infohub, maybe a 100 meters away now. No companion yellow orb here, though; its presence in the Infohub pic remains a mystery to me.

And then the other, odder picture found previously in the Infohub by Baker Bloch is partially explained as he rounds the northern edge of Elderglen: here’s the transporter mentioned in the picture! I messed up some of the snapshots showing various details of the transporter, but stuck on one of the 8 surrounding portals, which I did manage to show in one, um, undamaged photo seen below (more on those portals soon as well!) there’s a note of apology penned by Magellan Linden himself regarding the transporter mishap. And in looking around more and seeing the various empty cans and bottle (4 Linden Lab Liason Triple Bochs, 1 Hippopotamus Fine Cognac, 1 Old Wart Hog O.P. Rum) in front of 1 of the 2 alchohol stocked crates labelled “Field Supplies” in the immediate vicinity, it wasn’t hard to guess that Magellan’s famous penchant for the drink was the direct cause of the mishap, in whatever shape and form it actually took. Still certainly nice, however, that ML simply said to send him the bill for the destruction. Must be a man of some wealth.
