Ship Rock 01 August 8, 2012

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),Spoon Fork (RIVER) — baker Blinker @ 9:29 am

Hiking up Jacob I. Road toward Concreek, Square Forest straight ahead.

Square Forest backing the field with the R&R Table (Reading and Riting). It is here that Michael Too use to read and perhaps write (rite) as well. Michael Too is legend.

Moving way past Concreek now, following Jacob I. Road all the way to Spoon Fork, perhaps a 1 1/2 mile distance from The Wye where I parked my car. Ugly Rock also featured in this 2008 blog post is in the foreground, Spoon Fork and bordering rocks on the opposite shore are in the background.

Looking downstream from the approximate place of Ugly Rock toward Ship Rock, our main destination for the day.

Ship Rock itself, with the independent Askew Rock to the right. Beautiful scenery here.

Mystery pools on Ship Rock. The whole rock is one big mystery set in stone.

Other side of Askew Rock, where a split of Spoon Fork settles into a pool of water with a rock in its center. It’s from this center the below picture was taken from, looking north.

“I’m… August 6, 2012

… down to a basic membership in Second Life once more, Hucka D. No more land owned for now. The Table House remains, thankfully, and basically in the same location in [7 Stones].

Hucka D.:

Good.

bb:

The Carcass-7 game is on.

—–

bb:

Hmmm, the Big Rock seems to be a second “microcosmia” I’ve mentioned on this blog, Hucka D. I wonder if the two are possibly related.

Hucka D.:

You must return to the first or original microcosmia, the one you first encountered I mean by that name. Tile Creek beckons you back.

bb:

A snake owns the second, larger Microcosmia.

Hucka D.:

Yes (smiles). A big snake for a big rock.

bb:

Indeed. Does the snake have a name?

Hucka D.:

Carl.

bb:

Hmm.

Hucka D.:

And his wife Shelly. And their babies Carl Jr. and Butch. And Uncle Bennie. And the seven Aunts, all named for colors. And the 4 nieces who just went off to high school together. And the littlest baby, Stipples. So cute. Child of Bennie. Nephew of Carl.

bb:

Great. Thanks for all that. What is the role of this new Microcosmia in Mossman legend?

Hucka D.:

Oh it was important. Marked the 2nd portal, the one with the most energy[ for sure]. Ugly Rock plays a role. It is difficult to cross the stream there for a reason. Carl knows.

bb:

The central long fissure must have been a source of worship.

Hucka D.:

Central Pool, yeah.

bb:

I have a lot of time to figure the rock out.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Microcosmia.

bb:

I wonder if the long fissure is possibly some kind of timeline, embedded in the rock or the soil.

Hucka D.:

Yes. It is.

—–

Hucka D.:

When Mossmen came across the fissure, they thought the same thing. They saw this as this and that as that. Perfect mirror. Microcosm.

bb:

One side represents the founding of the Mossmen at Grandfather Mountain.

Hucka D.:

Northern part. Great Snake. Carl.

bb:

Only at Great Pool did they discover their own identity or begin to discover it.

Hucka D.:

Mocksity. Moss Most. Both. On same creek obviously (Spoon Fork).

bb:

It certainly shows up pretty clearly in Bing Maps, Hucka D. You can kind of even see the fissure on the rock we’re talking about.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Ship Rock is a correct name.

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),NORRIS,Spoon Fork (RIVER),Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 7:02 am

Explored more of NORRIS today. Lots of nooks/crannies/corners I didn’t see before. Will attempt to take pictures tomorrow.

Was wondering about the Norris Rock and about how there may be two instead of one. Examined the main one we’re calling that name today — it really looks like a worn headstone from an old graveyard. But upon closer inspection it actually appears to be a naturally occurring rock in that particular spot.

The other rock that may also be termed Norris is just behind it, right above the creek itself. I took a better look at that one today as well — had to lean over another rock directly in front of it for the better view. I’ll try to take another picture today — it is flat on one side, and plated in white quartz on that particular side as well, although much of it is also covered with some sort of moss.

NORRIS (stream spirit) indicated to me in a recent blog post that the Norris Rock is connected with the triangle Sun-Lake-Forest, also add in Bush as another (4th?) category. What I originally thought was a bush pictured here is actually a tree standing in the middle of The Freedom Path, immediately beside the Norris Rock. But there is a rather sprawling rhododendron bush right behind this rock — maybe that’s what is being referred to here instead. Is it the Sun Bush? The Lake Bush? (and a logical third: The Forest Bush?) Is it some kind of Burning Bush, perhaps connected more with the Sun Bush aspect? What is going on with that particular rock??

As NORRIS flows beside a path that is a part of a network of trails, it can be approached from several different angles. Today I took one of the longer routes to the stream, passing a number of people in the process (including a neighbor couple who I didn’t even recognize until they were past me!). Beautiful meadows along the way, and I also skirted the strange Square Forest mentioned very early in this blog. In fact, I also visited the 3rd Portal of the Spoon Fork Portal System (Spoon Fork originally called RIVER on the B.B. Blog), also discussed very early in blog history (2008) but then seldom mentioned afterwards. The main post about the latter subject is here:


https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/2008/04/19/portals-between/

In fact I also went to the second, percieved portal of this system yesterday as well — I mentioned getting lost that day, and it was directly up the hill from this portal where the confusion began. Right at the portal identified in this post…

https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/2008/04/13/nother-frank-park-portal/

… I found a very wet and shivering squirrel who appeared to have fallen into the river and was in some kind of shock state — couldn’t move away from me and just sat perched on a ledge above the old campfire spot (the “portal”). Of course we can make this into a story, like: He came through the portal from another location on the river and got wet in the process. But I did certainly take note of the odd condition of the squirrel and at that particular place of all spots. Again, I couldn’t take a picture because I had forgotten to plug a memory card into my camera that day before leaving the house.


The 2nd Spoon Fork portal, where I saw the wet squirrel.

—–

I need to think more about this portal system and the strange alignments I uncovered in 2008. Second Life is losing or has lost its grip on me. Time for a more or less full return to reality reality, although I’ll certainly still play around in SL. Just not with the intensity of before, and with all the attached net of synchronicities. A lot of it is just the plain out de-energizing of mainland living, period. Whatever is left is too loosely connected to make any kind of whole now, although I think the potential was once there, perhaps several years ago. My belief is that it will slowly fade away, just like Azure Islands and just like Otherland before it. In several years it could be no more, with Jeogeot just a memory.

So… what up with this portal system??

Loose Notes (Toy Avatars?) November 19, 2010

Meeting Rock was meeting place of primarily 3 types of Toy Avatars: Mossmen, Mmmmmm’s, and Marbles. 3 M’s then. The phrase 3Ms has meaning in and of itself (study).

Meeting Rock should probably have a tag in this blog. “Where is the 4th?” became a central question during an original or early meeting.

Debate: did the Quadrobeavs attend meetings there? Or the humanoid avatars, perhaps from Whitehead Crossing? How about the Bees from Greenhead?

Where were the Mossmen located? My feeling is that they came mostly from Frank Park, while the Mmmmmm’s resided primarily in neighboring Herman Park. But not exclusively for either party.

Mossmen have been claimed to originally come from Moss Most, a rock on the edge of Frank Park and Granddaddy Mtn. Mossmen were not allowed to tread on that sacred peak. Gene Fade, actor who played Mossman Solo in Salad Bar Jack in the River of TILE movie, decided to create a moss avatar named Karoz who could safely hike Granddaddy Mtn. to the satisfaction of all.

From Moss Most, the Mossmen civilization slowly, taking ages and ages, moved down RIVER into Frank Park. We now have additional information that RIVER is actually named Spoon Fork.

So Mossmen come from upper reaches of Spoon Fork but not upper upper reaches, which would instead be inside Granddaddy Mtn. territory. Or did they? (study, once more). That area was perhaps “X”ed out, like a crossed Spoon and Fork pictured above. No tresspassing on this sacred land, which was instead reserved for the Rock Gods or Gods of Rock. One such band of Rock Gods was called Sink Ark (debatable).

Well, if Spoon and Fork act cross with each other near the source, they must then cooperate near the mouth. And this is where Knife comes in, a 3rd, balancing force. This may be the same as the Portal System of RIVER (now Spoon Fork) described very early in this blog, actually.

*****

Potentially important concept: Creepy Crawlers

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creepy_Crawlers

Was this how the glop people of Sharon remake themselves or clone themselves? Did Mossmen have the same ability? Interesting that Creepy Crawlers is also called Thingmaker…

http://en.wordpress.com/tag/thingmaker/

… since Mr. Dale Innis the blogging avatar, lives directly below the still extant Freakies Tree in Yalu, in the neighboring Hugh’s Rise sim directly west.

Lisa The Vegetarian is also obviously important. Obviously linkable to the idea of St. Lemon of Troy. Especially since she has been sainted herself in the meantime, after her death during what we can assume is an attack by dogs on the Jonesborough, Herman Park compound. St. Lisa The Vegetarian, then. or SLTV. Buried along with her saxophone. Left handed bass player Marty takes over as Jonesborough leader. Remaining toys loathing the day they decided to stick around after the end of the filming of that Salad Bar Jack movie. And just *where* is Salad Bar, er, I mean Grassy Noll in all this? Never paid his condolences. Too big a star with too big a head, perhaps?

Imp. as well: No writing comes out of Parson’s Vale on the east side of Great Meadow, Herman Park, just music. Sounds like my improvised music a bit but isn’t. Organized. Aotearoa. 2E2E.

Plastic People/Plasticman: Toy avatars are seen as plastic people first during reign of Lisa The Vegetarian, before she hands over rulership of Jonesborough (other places?) to Marty, who moves directly from Sunklands on the Jeogeot continent to take the job, becoming plastic himself in the process (*power* [Powerman] bestowed by Lisa?). Lisa admits to other toys that she comes from a 2 dimensional land which knows nothing of 3d until a closet portal was found. A TV is the key.

So… Lisa refinds or reopens the portal her father originally found while hiding from her 2 visiting aunts, allowing 2d toy avatars the power to become 3d. She is wealthy, perhaps connected with nearby Wealthy Mtn. (also in Herman Park). She finds a huge stash of crystals and makes money off it (Quartz Brook tumbling off side of Wealthy Mtn.). She teaches all 2d avatars the benefits of turning 3d and plastic. Avatar bodies are prepared.

Lisa’s father was the original Plastic*man* but then Lisa created a whole civilization of Plastic *People*. Beginning and end, alpha and omega. Man and People.

To do this she had to stabilize the black hole formed at the center of 3d at the time. It is a coffee cup, perhaps a Klein bottle. How to stabilize??

To gain needed wealth to make Plastic People, Lisa may have to cooperate with Powerman who is square shaped. Spongebob? (probably not).

Notherton January 24, 2009

Filed under: Herman/Frank Parks (rl parks),Spoon Fork (RIVER),Toy Avatars — baker Blinker @ 10:42 pm

The famous red patch on the Jupiter Rock first mentioned in this post. This is in the general location where Mossman actor Gene Fade was born and raised before his move to nearby Notherton, once a city of some importance to the Mossman culture.

img_0765smaller

Some pictures, then, of the what could be called the Notherton “ruins”. I let Gene explain (in my head no less!) what all this was about.

The picture below is of what remains of the center of this “city”, explains Gene Fade, a complex of what he called open floor buildings, somewhat in the style of the Gallery at the Temple of TILE. Interesting comparison. He says upon further reflection that, yes, the buildings would make up, in toto, about the same amount of space as the old Ubertemple on Azure Islands.

img_0768smaller

Also in this old central region of Notherton are a considerable number of these ridged metal slices. Fade explains they are material for aerial walkways, now in disrepair. I didn’t ask Gene at the time, but I wondered, then, why many of them appeared to be grouped in piles, as if someone had organized the slices in the meantime.

img_0772smaller

This is what I’m calling the “Lost Jar”, referring to the fact that when I first stumbled upon the location of Notherton, I, baker b., found this particular jar and became fascinated by the inner microcosm of plants. However, upon setting it aside and looking around the immediate area some more, I was then unable to relocate where I had placed it. I looked and looked and looked: no luck. Yet when I returned there just today to take pictures, there it was on the ground in an obvious walking spot, plain as day.

I may have more to say about “Lost Jar”, the microcosm, in the near future.

img_0782smaller

More artifacts from the Notherton ruins.

img_0787smaller

img_0791smaller

Then a short distance away through the woods, I found this quite queer group of 5 trees, arranged in almost a perfect pentagonal pattern. Gene Fade explained to me that, indeed, within and between these carefully shaped and sized trees use to be a huge — to them — treehouse structure composed as well of a number of open floors, as was the general style of Mossman builds. Fade also explains to me that this would kind of be the equivalent to what we call a suburban mall, on the outskirts of Notherton and a popular shopping destination. In fact, Fade admitted to me that he had a cap outlet on the second level of this building.*

img_0804smaller

A look up from the ground through the center of the 5 trees, and where Fade claims the pentagonal treehouse mall use to be positioned.

* Also in the earlier post, Gene Fade explains that he use to own a business he called a cappery, which produced what we might call baseball-type caps

 

Other… January 5, 2009

“Thanks for being here in the middle of the night again Wheeler.”

Wheeler:

I’m here. Greetings.

bb:

To the reader, primarily [first]: I think our trip to Otherland may have to be cancelled.

Wheeler:

Oh don’t do that. Are you punishing poor, little Esbum?

bb:

She’s been bad lately. Escaped our watch.

Wheeler:

She is…

Hucka D.:

Hello guys.

bb:

Hucka D., do you know Wheeler?

Hucka D.:

We are adjacent.

bb:

Interesting. I wanted to ask Wheeler about RS7, I believe. Tonight.

Hucka D.:

Wheeler cannot talk about that any more right now. He’s helped a lot already, though, hasn’t he?

bb:

Yes. (pause) So Hucka D…

Hucka D.:

Yeah?

bb:

Baker Bloch saw Hurla Dontbee last night for the first time.

Hucka D.:

That only interests me now as synchronicity.

bb:

You’re lemon stand was still there as well. I was frankly surprised… it’s been awhile.

Hucka D.:

It *is* synchronicity.

bb:

Do we still need to go there?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.*

bb:

Logging in, then.

*****

bb:

“Oh, Hucka D. I forgot to talk about Notherton I was so excited about going to Otherland.

Hucka D.:

Yes, we need to talk about that.

bb:

Is this a Mossman establishment?

Hucka D.:

Obviously. Not far from Mocksity. North of that. North Otherton. Notherton. Almost a palindrone, actually. [but not really]

bb:

What is it?

Hucka D.:

An ancient city site.

bb:

Is it connected to Otherland in SL?

Hucka D.:

Might be.

bb:

Has Grassy ever visited the place? Or Gene Fade?

Hucka D.:

Not yet, but soon.

bb:

Can you say anything more about it?

Hucka D.:

Notherton is within the contiguous Frank Park, and fairly central within. It was a northern Mossman temple center. They worshipped [delete name].

bb:

I don’t think that’s possible. Did they know of the Ubertemple?

Hucka D.:

They, of course, knew of Mocksity.

bb:

Is Mocksity the same as the Ubertemple?

Hucka D.:

Sylver Forest. You must study more.

bb:

What do the pentagon shaped group of trees mean?

Hucka D.:

A sign… that you’re on the right track. You need to take pictures. And you…

bb:

The microcosm I found. Then I lost it. Mysterious, perhaps.

Hucka D.:

Lost. From view. Microcosm. Island.

bb:

Should I talk to Grassy about it?

Hucka D.:

Mocksity should not be visited until the late spring, when the trees and plants are out again. Notherton can be visited anytime. Central.

bb:

Should I get rid of…

Hucka D.:

*No.*

bb:

Alright. Thank you.

Hucka D.:

Sleep tight.

 

Bit Broken Off… October 19, 2008

bb:

Hucka D., I know it’s earlier than we usually talk on Sat. night but I wanted to start the ball rolling on this map. Do you have any opening remarks before I put forth my base theories I have so far?

Hucka D.:

You are guessing correctly. I know what you will say.

bb:

Thank you. I’ve erased the actual name of the park on the map here [yellow spaces], and also the actual name of [RIVER] than runs through the top part of it. But this is, again, only a much smaller, separated part from the main chunk of the park, lying mainly to the north and the west. *Now*, I think I’ve figured out *how* this could be a portal. First off, Hucka D., I think this is a broken portal.

Hucka D.:

Correct. It was broken on purpose.

bb:

What I’ve done here is overlap the standard sim grid of SL [Second Life, trademarked], each sim being 256 x 256 meters, with the actual topographic map of this separated bit. As you can see, I’ve lined up the sims with the top right corner of this separate part. In doing this I remember you and also Smithy, I believe, talking about Cornersville, and the association with Mocksity.

Hucka D.:

Yep.

bb:

And that the corner acts as some kind of control. Well, this corner is also the approximate position of Mocksity. It would sit about on the “e” of the map just above this corner. I purposely left this “e” in to show the position of Mocksity.

Hucka D.:

That’s where it is.

bb:

So if you line up this grid of 256 x256 meter squares, representing sims, with the map in this way, with this particular corner, you get some curious lineups. You can see that the top and bottom of that ne corner sim line up with the park lines in this way. My theory, Hucka D., is that this *use* to be a whole sim, but was distorted along that eastern line at a certain point. This was when the portal was broken.

Hucka D.:

That’s right, in essence. The portal was closed when the line was moved. Now, why was it moved?

bb:

I don’t know. That’s when the virtual reality was translated to Earth?

Hucka D.:

The Mossmen control this corner. The Mossmen, then, obviously allowed the corner sim to be manipulated to form the disjunction. Perfection ruined. Fall.

bb:

I’ve discovered this fall at the peak of the fall season. It was beautiful there today Hucka D., although, weirdly, I also, physically, *fell* just past Mocksity, which I never do in the woods, it seems. Got quite muddy.

Hucka D.:

Mirror. Someone wanted you to be careful. The Fall is built in. Total correctness of actions is not possible now. We do not control all.

bb:

“We”?

[Hucka D. does not answer.]

bb:

Hucka D., I don’t think this portal extended into the main part of Frank Park.

Hucka D.:

The main part has a portal system of its own, as you know now.

bb:

But the corner sim use to be a full sim.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

As a full sim, did it exist fully in SL, then?

Hucka D.:

It still exists. Just because the portal is broken doesn’t mean the two or more connected realities aren’t still present and functioning as always.

bb:

Does this have to do with the Rubi sim?

Hucka D.:

(pause) Yes.

bb:

Does it have to do with Kerchal?

Hucka D.:

Not so much.

bb:

Is the corner sim the same as the Rubi sim?

Hucka D.:

No. (pause) Not really.

bb:

I just wanted to state for the reader, Hucka D., that I went to this area again today and could find no way into the center of this park part. It seems basically impenetrable. In looking at the satellite view tonight, it looks like a solid sheet of forest. So basically it is just a forest, impenetrable. That’s cool, of course, but I thought it, um, odd, that there’s no way into the center. And then there’s the story of Smithy involved as well.

Hucka D.:

Smithy is here. We’ll get to her or him in a moment.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., another thing I observed about this grid overlap with the park bit here is that a square of the park is separated from the rest. It lies to the east of all else in the park. This would be 1 down and 1 right of the top corner sim. And this square *seems* to imply a 5-fold nature for this bit.

Hucka D.:

That is not as important as the corner sim, although you are kind of correct on that. The corner sim is the one that counts. Control. Mossmen. Mocksity.

bb:

Why does Gene Fade want to rebuild that temple at the center of Mocksity?

Hucka D.:

You are asking good and important questions. The temple is the same as the Temple of TILE now absent from SL. You’ve erased it. You have the 2 houses on top of your gallery, but it’s not the same. You must rebuild.

bb:

I met or at least saw another Tilest today. At the Midge sim.

Hucka D.:

Mossman wants the temple rebuilt. Gene Fade I mean.

bb:

How many Mossmen actually lived at Mocksity, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Presently none. Tops: 20.

bb:

How many Mossmen have ever lived?

Hucka D.:

About 100. But they live to be 500-600 years old usually. Or at least they use to. Now it’s maybe 350-400, or less.

bb:

How about the Mmmmmm’s?

Hucka D.:

Oh there are 1000s upon 1000s of them, but they have very short lives, even in comparison to humans. Grassy is fairly old in Mmmmmm terms, and he’s only about 27. That’s one reason they’re quite naive. They don’t live long enough to gather enough knowledge to become competently wise. That’s why Gene Fade and Grassy are good complements. Gene Fade has wisdom coming out his ears, and he’s also very patient with such things as Mmmmmm childishness stuff. They live longer when their shell has hardened. They’re more vulnerable as children. They’re quite sweet and tasty [at] that stage.

bb:

Thanks for that information. Now Hucka D., did Mossmen then live in this corner sim, outside Mocksity that is?

Hucka D.:

No. They only controlled it. They lived in Mocksity.

bb:

What *did* live in the corner sim, then?

Hucka D.:

It was a portal, so two worlds were involved. (pause) But, basically, tree spirits.

bb:

It was a tree portal??

Hucka D.:

Yes. Forest portal. But still a portal.

bb:

Did the Mossmen talk or have communication with these trees, this forest or these forests?

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) Tremont.

bb:

Tremont?

Hucka D.:

Powerman.

bb:

Does this have something to do with the Pope Project or Project Pope?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

You are being quite patient and understanding tonight Hucka D., and I thank you. Is there a main spirit for the trees?

Hucka D.:

Square. Sim. Whole. Forest.

bb:

Why are there no complete forest sims in SL?

[Hucka D. does not answer.]

bb:

I know of a tree at 125, 125 ,or 1/2 250, 250. Maybe it’s not 256 meters but 250 meters.

Hucka D.:

You must rebuild the temple.

bb:

Should it be a combination of the old Temple of TILE but also B_Hivia?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Should we talk to Smithy now?

Hucka D.:

That would be fine. Explore the Nautilus oceans tonight when you get up again.

bb:

Smithy?

Smithy:

The full [sim] is the key. Lock, key. Hole.

bb:

Have you been talking about a key hole, then, Smithy?

Smithy:

I am a spirit now. [RIVER] flows around island and loves island, as island loves RIVER.

bb:

Who did you love Smithy?

Smithy:

Pain. Hole. Suffering. But better now. Second life.

bb:

Smithy, what do you know about the full [sim] Hucka D. and I were talking about?

Smithy:

I do know that actions are not fully controllable in [the area]. Shot. Hole. Tire. Hole.

bb:

Do you think this is because the Mossmen broke the portal by moving or warping that [eastern] line?

Smithy:

Mossmen are [doesn’t complete sentence].

bb:

Do you still believe in the Mossmen?

Smithy:

Control. Corner. Yes, I know the Mossmen.

Hucka D.:

Smithy is tired now. I will answer all remaining questions.

bb:

Does she know the Mossmen or understand them?

Hucka D.:

Not really. Smithy has been reborn and is new, shall we say. She is practicing. She will learn.

bb:

Does that full sim have to do with the Egan sim of SL?

Hucka D.:

Yes. You better get some rest now.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D.:

No prob.
