Notre Dame, Al-Aqsa fire and Fire Investigation

The fire of Notre Dame has stopped. Fortunately the whole building hasn’t come down. Yesterday the media was repeating all over how  it was probably an accident relating to the renovation, and then the sheeple were repeating that as fact. Before I get to accident story, I’ll share something else first.

Yesterday, at the same time Notre Dame was burning, the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem had a fire too. Fortunately the firemen over there were able to put out the fire wihout any major damages, or so I understand. What a coincidence that this very important religious building for Muslims, was burning at the same time as the Christian Notre Dame. I don’t buy it as coincidence as a second, but whether the act was done by God, the devil, or a wordly organization with the power to do such an operation is up for debate. Certain Jews want to tear down the mosque so they can build their prophesized Third Temple.  Maybe God was pinging both locations at the same time trying to tell Christians and Muslims who their real enemy is. Yet a lot of people will just brush the two fires as curious coincidences.

This is where two kinds of worldviews conflict, the somewhat religiously inclined (although I’m not a believer of any certain religion) conspiracy nut view I have where most things happen for a reason, there is a deliberate cause and an effect, and the worldview of most first world people nowadays where mechanistic accidental “rational” causes make things happen. In both of these world views, the idea of things having a purpose in the former, and not having a purpose in the latter, the principles they follow are applied to most aspects of life ranging from the origin to life to politics and incidents like these fires.

Since the media is toting the Notre Dame fire as an accident, most people buy it at face value. Today at work some people were discussing it. One guy said it was an accident relating to the renovation, and I pointed out that they don’t really know the cause yet, it could also be arson. He looked at me sort of funny. Almost as if “normal” people like him are unable to differentiate between a claim made in the media and a fact they have witnessed themselves. He’s not the only person, I’ve seen take the accident narrative as gospel, apparently not even considering there are other possibilities, as if the media was the voice of God. Same kind of behaviour applies to many other cases than the Notre Dame fire.

It’s like these people are watching a movie without thinking it too deeply, and as long as there is a explanation, they believe it. Just as when they watch a movie only to be entertained and do not notice the plotholes, because they don’t care about the details. This phenomenon can obviously be seen also in fanboys of movie franchises, such as Star Wars. There are people making videos pointing out the plotholes in those movies, yet the fanboys get angry at the messenger awhile holding onto the narrative they like. These people are like fanboys of main stream media.

The Paris public prosecutor had said, according to the BBC, they were “‘favouring the theory of an accident’, ‘but had assigned 50 people to investigate the origin of the fire.” This at least sounds more reasonable than the narrative the media was pushing yesterday, explicitly disregarding the possibility of foul play and promoting the accident narrative. At best this is irresponsible. When a shocking event happens, people feel unconfortable. They seek an explanation why, and they tend to stick with the first one they hear. This is why false flags have to start early on promoting the official line. Whether the fire was a false flag or not, I cannot say for sure. But when the authorities are pushing this clearly fictitious narrative, and it is fictitious since they cannot know the cause so early on if it was an accident, I naturally suspect a false flag. There are still other possibilities.

One reason to push this narrative is to prevent rampant theorizing on the causes, however in my case it caused just the opposite reaction. Some people are sure to suspect Muslim terrorists, saying it was an accident would alleviate some of those suspicions in the general public. If this is the case, it’s dishonest disrespectful as it is treating adults like children. If they don’t know the reason, they should say it they don’t know it and urge people to remain calm while they investigate. Another reason might be that the authorities don’t know the exact cause, but they suspect it was Muslims, Antifa or a similar group. They are giving the accident narrative to prevent a backlash against the Muslim community in France, a bit like the authorities have done in the UK with Pakistani rape gangs. If this is true, they are aiding and abetting criminals.

Why I am harping on about the accident narrative is that it is impossible to know the cause of the fire right now, unless it was a false flag or a terrorist attack the French government is covering for, since when a fire happens, the fire department conducts a fire investigation. These things take time. The West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service has an article detailing the life of a fire investigator. According to it, “Dependant on the size of the incident an investigation can vary from a few hours to a number of months.” Carroll County Times also has an article on fire investigations. Fire marshal Kenny Pool said some investigations can “go for days, months, years”. The Notre Dame fire was pretty big. I’d say it should take at least a month, probably much longer. Certainly over 24 hours. And they should certainly have waited until the fire was put down and were able to send investigators in, before they claiming it was probably an accident. The French authorities were priming people with the accident narrative when the cathedral was still aflame.

We’ll have to wait and see when the fire investigation is done what they say, and of course wonder if their account can be trusted either.

I mentioned in the previous article how people were saying Notre Dame will be replaced with a mosque. Now that it is still mostly intact (a masterpiece of architecture btw. Our “advanced” society couldn’t build anything to last for over 800 years), maybe they will renovate it as a sanctum for all people of all beliefs, instead of just for Christians or Catholics. The usual New World Order claptrap.

Notre Dame is Burning

The famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris burning. The official cause has not been announced yet, although the media is hinting toward it having been an accident. It had been under renovation and there are rumours the accident got its start from there. As can be seen in the picture, there are scaffolding on the church.

 

Accident

I have my doubts, but let’s explore the possibility of an accident. First of all if it was an accident due to the renovation crew’s mistake, they’re the worst crew in the world and the whole company should get bankrupt. Renovations are supposed to do the opposite of burning down the building. I found a New York Times article from 2017 saying how the cathedral badly needs renovation. According to the article the architect in charge is Philippe Villeneuve. I found a French website La Compagnie des Architectes en Chef des Monuments Historiques that employes a man of the same name. I presume it’s the same man.

EDIT: Apparently the company behind the renovation is called Socra. Villeneuve is the architect only.

Notre Dame is one of the most iconic, historical and famous buildings in the world, so you’d think they would take the necessary precautions to ensure they don’t accidentally burn it down or cause other irreparable damage. Shouldn’t there be smoke detectors there, if a spark set something on fire? How did the fire get so large before it was noticed? The company behind the renovation seems professional enough, even their name is a mouthful. Certainly looking at the state of the current president of France, it is somewhat plausible that they don’t really care about the historical achievements of France, and thus would allow incompetence to lead to something like this. Yet I doubt it.

 

My usual Conspiracy Schtick

I believe the fire has been deliberate. It certainly is a symbolical blow to French and Christian history.  Some people are even predicting or joking that if the whole building burns down, they will erect a mosque there. Sounds plausible.

It’s also exactly one month since the Christchurch attack in New Zealand on a mosque. It happened March 15. Too coincidental for my taste. For an attack on a Muslim religious building, although not a very historical one, and now Notre Dame is burning.

According to some comments I’ve seen it took around 40 minutes for the fire department to arrive and start hosing down the fire. If that’s true, sounds like it’s way beyond incompetence. It’s in the center of Paris, and a well-known building is burning down. You’d think they’d get to it pretty fast.

My guess is that the renovation was a cover for setting up this fire. That is was deliberate. Whether or not Philippe Villeneuve’s company was involved in this operation, I cannot say. French president Jupiter, I mean Macron, had been in trouble for months due to the Yellow Vests protesters. In fact he was going address them and possibly announce new policies today, or might be doing it as I type this. Now that the cathedral is burning down, it can be used to demoralize French nationalist sentiment, to direct attention towards people virtue signalling over this tragedy, and to paint the Yellow Vests as insensitive if they continue to protest after this fire, because all French should come together to overcome the tragedy. In fact, the Yellow Vests will probably be blamed for the fire directly or indirectly. Either they claim that a Yellow Vest started the fire, or the cathedral burned down because the govenment had to allocate too many forces to combat them instead of focusing on protecting historical sites like this.

In recent times many other French churches have been purposefully desecrated as well. What a coincidental time that this fire happened now.

 

Interesting Comments

Some interesting comments have emerged on social media regarding Notre Dame’s fire. The Jewish Worker has sought to remind us of our anti-semitic White privilege, as any good Jew always will do.

 

There’s also a video showing the Notre Dame burning in the background and loads of people with Arabic names showing a smiley face. I cannot upload the video here, so here’s a screencap.

 

These Semitic people surely are our brothers and share our pain, am I right?

 

Conclusion

Notre Dame is still burning as I type this, so it’s difficult to say anything for sure. Yet I find the level of incompetence required for the fire so immense I find it hard to believe it was merely an accident. If it had been a bunch of rogue Muslims or other arsonists sounds also far-fetched. Shouldn’t there be some sort of security to prevent this, unless the security was conveniently lacking today. If this was some sort of false flag, the purpose would be symbolical demoralization and a distraction from other events.

EDIT: AP reports that the cause of the fire is not known, yet “The Paris prosecutors’ office ruled out arson and possible terror-related motives, and said it was treating it as an accident.” How does that work? How can they exclude the possibility of arson, if they haven’t investigated the cause? Shouldn’t they wait for the fire to settle down and see if there is evidence of foul play? I thought that’s how things usually work if a building burns down.

More Info on the ChristChurch shooting including Israel and Podesta

Last Friday there was a shooting incident in ChristChurch New Zealand near a mosque or two. I already pointed out some discrepancies in the official story in my previous article, and I’ve found some more of them.

 

Israel Connection

The suspect Brenton Tarrant had visited Israel back in late 2016 for nine days, according to Stuff.co website. He wrote in his manifesto that he had traveled all around the world, so this in itself is not necessarily suspicious. Also nine days is a normal time for a tourist to stay in a country. However, this is not the only Israel connection in the incident. Intellectual Observer website has reported that “The fifth suspect of Christchurch shootings has defected to Israel”. We know from previous news sources that originally arrested 4 four suspects: Tarrant, two other men and a woman. According to the TVNZ website the police does not believe the three others were involved, but one had a firearm with him and was therefore charged with a firearms offence. Also “A further person, an 18-year-old man was also arrested and is due to appear in court on Monday.” Yet the police do not believe he was involved in the the shootings.

Here’s a clip supposedly of other two suspects. One of them is clearly holding a gun. According to TVNZ one person with a gun was arrested, so could this be him? Probably not. A man and a woman were in a car when arrested. It could be that after this video was taken the two ran into a car to hide. However these two people look both like men.

If the Intellectual Observer is correct, there was a sixth suspect, in addition to the 18-year old, and he fled to Israel “with the help of unknown aides”. This has Mossad false flag written all over it. Otherwise why would the suspect flee the country in such a hurry, and why would the New Zealand authorities allow it? It’s reminiscent of 9/11 when the dancing Israelies were first arrested by the police, but then allowed to return to Israel.

The BBC even states that the attacker was a “lone gunman”. A fall guy as usual, all attention is drawn to Tarrant, whereas his co-perpetrators’ involvement are downplayed and eventually ignored. Looks like an operation that was pulled by an intelligence agency or two.

 

Wikipedia Changing

The Wikipedia article on the shooting has changed since Friday, which is to be expected. Good thing I saved the original, so I can compare the omissions.

There is no longer mention of the “extremist views” of the other suspects, report of one of them wearing explosives, or the shooting at ChristChurch hospital.

 

Tarrant’s Video

Tarrant streamed the beginning of the shooting incident. I have not been able to find the whole video, but I have seen some clips. I will not share them here as they might just take down the blog. In the clips that I’ve seen, the perpetrator seems to be shooting a lot of people, but there is a distinct lack of blood in many cases. There are pools of blood under some of the people, but only a few, and you can see the bullets tear into the flesh of some of the people who are getting shot. However, most people look like nothing hits them. It could very well be that the shooter is using blanks, and in the cases where you see wounds, they are using bloodpacks or other props.

This is not in any way conclusive, and I am merely suggesting the possibility that “crisis actors” were used. Let’s just explore the possibility that this whole event was in fact staged, at least the mosque shooting in the video. It could be that there was another, a real shooting elsewhere, such as the ChristChurch hospital, and the goal of this shooting was to distract from that.

So why use actors instead of killing real people? I often hear the argument that The Powers That Be have no qualms about killing people. Which I agree with. However there are reasons why they possibly would not do so. One possibility that I’ve discussed in the past is that certain organizations may simply not have the legal right to do it. There might be intelligence agencies with the right to use lethal force, but maybe there are NGOs that don’t. Also if you are pulling an attack where the goal is to kill real people, you have to make sure you don’t end up killing important people. For example during 9/11 Larry Silverstein was conveniently at the denstist, if I recall correctly. You have to make sure you don’t accidentally kill a powerful politician or his family members during a false flag.

Even a better reason why to use “crisis actors” instead of killing real people is control. You need to be able to control the whole incident, if you want to control the narrative that develops afterwards. If every victim, witness or perpetrator is working under the same management towards the same goal, it’s easier to manage. If there are outsiders there in your false flag, they will bring a chaotic element to it. Maybe there’s someone with a gun and they end up killing your perpetrator(s), maybe they accidentally shoot a witness that was supposed to be a part of your narrative. Maybe they will see something they shouldn’t, and manage to escape from the perpertrator. For example, many false flags seem to have several gunmen, yet in the official story there’s only a lone nut. It’s the same reason they don’t let random people get into the ring in professional wrestling, since they might derail the whole show.

 

Podesta Visit to NZ

Former Hillary Clinton aide of Pizzagate fame, John Podesta, visited New Zealand a week before the shooting. He called the country’s prime minister Jacinda Ardern, a superstar. The New Zealand Herald quoted him saying:

“I think she combines an approach that is dealing with building a fair, more inclusive, more sustainable economy with someone who is exciting and young and brings her baby to the United Nations.”

This coming from Podesta sounds quite creepy and possibly literal when Ardern “brings her baby to the United Nations” to be abused in their occult rituals. My hunch is that Podesta’s role was to prepare the NZ government for the false flag whereas Mossad or whomever was taking care of the logistics of the incident.

 

Conclusion

It starts to look more and more like a false flag. I don’t think Brenton Tarrant was acting alone, if he was even involved in any of this. This wasn’t an “organic” shooting.

I was planning to discuss Tarrant’s manifesto here as well, but the article is long enough already, so maybe I’ll do it next time.

The ChristChurch Shooting Comedy

Earlier today an Australian man, Brenton Tarrant, shot 49 people in a mosque and in an Islamic centre in ChristChurch, New Zealand. Or so we’re told. Right off the bat the name of the city where the event took place is quite ironic, ChristChurch, a mosque in ChristChurch gets shot up. This whole event seems like the work of a master of dark comedy.

Whenever any act of violence occurs with significant political implications and it gets vast international media attention, a good rule of thumb is to assume it’s a false flag of some sort. I didn’t say it’s necessarily one, but it’s more reasonable to start off with that assumption than believe everything the media says at face value. The purpose of the media is propaganda, purely that. It is there to deceive you, to feed you a false sense of reality. If this sounds far-fetched to you, you haven’t been paying attention. It is in no way reasonable to assume they are being honest when it comes to political events such as this. My impression is that even the alternative media nowadays tends to assume the “facts” of these sort of events are correct, they’re simply giving the story a different spin.

 

What if he did it?

Despite me thinking it very unlikely that the shooting was orchestrated by this Lone Nut™, I’ll explore the possibility and its implications. Tarrant supposedly wrote a 74 page manifesto explaining his motives. He was worried about the Great Replacement, i.e. White people getting replaced in their own countries by third world immigrants. He saw Islam especially as a threat and took action against it, leading to the deaths of 49 people (most or all of them Muslim). It is not for me to condemn or condone his methods, and I do understand his motive. The question here is not whether or not it was moral to do what he did, but will the actions he took lead to the outcome he desired? Will killing a bunch of Muslims lead to New Zealand being liberated from Islamic invaders? I don’t think so, it’s possible, but doubtful. It is conceivable Tarrant’s actions will inspire New Zealanders to take up arms against Muslims in their lands and lead to many more acts of violence against them, and in, let’s say 10 years time, most Muslims will leave the country. If this happens, Tarrant was correct in his actions. I however think this will only hinder the cause Tarrant was supposedly championing. Criticizing Muslims will be more suppressed in the Western world because of this incident. According to some reports such as the one below, certain “right-wing” websites are already blocked in New Zealand due to the shooting.

 

You may take offense to what I said that I don’t condemn Tarrant’s actions or that if his actions lead to New Zealand getting de-Muslimified he was correct. If this offends you, you disgust me. Condemning and denoucing those of engage in violence is mere effeminate virtue signalling. I condemned the United States when they attacked Afghanistan in 2001, I condemned them when they invaded Iraq two years later. Did my moral outrage stop these wars? Of course not. At best, it’s impotent whining to condemn perpetrators of violence. It is also an (unfortunate?) fact that violence does solve certain problems, and sometimes it’s the only solution. After all the United States gained their independence by violence, not by writing eloquent essays. National Socialist Germany was destroyed with violence, not by sternly wagging a finger at them.  The French Revolution too was won with violence, and currently the Yellow Vests are achieving something in France by violence. Regardless of what was your preferred outcome in any of these conflicts, the winners achieved their goals with violence.

Simple-minded people tend to react emotionally to mass-shootings like this. They’re shocked and horrified. I suppose I was too once, but the shootings are so common nowadays I don’t really care to bring emotion into it. You’re supposed to grow up and start looking at these events rationally, if you really do care. Still most people don’t. They can express their emotional outrage on social media, condemning violence and all that, until the next week when it’s all forgotten. But then I’m such a heartless bastard, and I don’t care about poor Muslims, including women and children, that allegedly died today. Show me your outrage on social media about the children Jeffrey Epstein and his cronies molested on Lolita island, the Palestinians and other Muslims Israel has killed over the years, the Americans Israel killed on the USS Liberty and on 9/11, the children Muslims have raped in Rotherham and other places around Europe, etc.

Part of the reason people get more emotional about these sort of shootings by a regular guy is that it’s easier for their small minds to put themselves in the situation, be they the victim or the perpetrator. It doesn’t require much imagination or understanding to do so, but when it comes to war and other political and conspiratorial issues, it’s complicated and their brain shuts off. The deaths caused by an abstract institution or a committee is a statistic, but the deaths caused by an individual is a tragedy. The crime itself, or the perpetrator(s) does not anger me as much as the regular people who feign interest and outrage. But let’s get back to the shooting itself.

 

Black Comedy

I’ve been at work whole day, so there are still many details of the incident I am yet to have seen or heard, including reading through the whole manifesto or watching the videos the alleged perpetrator uploaded. Wikipedia provides a few interesting details about our suspect. Brenton Tarrant livestreamed 16 minutes of his attack on Facebook. Wikipedia says: “Moments before the shooting the perpetrator in his car played ‘Serbia Strong'”. This is hilarious if you know what song this is. Maybe you’ve heard it:

 

Also before commencing the attack, Tarrant said “subscribe to PewDiePie”, the evil Alt-Right gamer Swedish gamer troll and king of Youtube. How is this not funny? Regardless of whether it is a false flag or not. The silly irony is increased as in some places in the Western world, such as New York, Australia and presumably New Zealand, the police are guarding mosques against “right-wing” terrorists. I member bit under 18 years ago when White people were afraid of Islamic terrorism, and the Big Brother was out there to help them. Now its reversed.

Maybe it’s just me, but this seems like an elaborate joke that someone orchestrated.

 

Everything doesn’t add up

There are some details to the shooting that don’t make sense. First of all, Brenton Tarrant gets all of the blame, although the police arrested two other men and one woman as well. One of them has been released. Did they participate in shooting as well? Why is Tarrant getting all the attention? The shooting occurred at two locations, Al Noor mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre. It started at the mosque, I suppose the shooter then drove to Linwood, since the two locations are around 6km apart from each other. How long did it take cops to get their asses over there? The blue dot on the right is the mosque and Linwood is on the left.

 

Wikipedia mentions that the police found two car bombs. Also one of the suspects was reported as wearing explosives and there were reports of shooting at the ChristChurch hospital. The police denied the two latter claims. Things like these suggest a false flag, but as the source is Wikipedia, I’m suspicious of them.

Tarrant supposedly frequented the website 8chan. One forum there is dedicated to traditional Nepalese basketweaving and holds people with far-right racist views. If Tarrant was a regular there and he internalized their doctrine he would not have written the following in his manifesto:

“Were/are you an anti-semite?

No.A jew living in israel is no enemy of mine, so long as they do not seek to subvert or harm my people.”

No person worth his salt on that forum would say this, as it is a core belief there that Jews are behind most of the problems in the modern world. A true forumite would hold the position that Jews will try to subvert and harm his people, even when they live in Israel. Moreover, in the whole manifesto, which is quite long, the word “Jew” is used only once. A true believer in their doctrine would have emphasized the role of Jews in control of media, finance, US foreign policy, possibly mention how the Holocaust is a fraud, and so on. Tarrant did none of this.

According to certain claims, a magazine for a gun was planted at the mosque before Tarrant arrived. This should be viable in the video he uploaded, but I haven’t gotten my hands on it yet. However I’ll share this image here nonetheless.

There is also this image supposedly of Tarrant on Facebook floating about. According to it, he visited Pakistan, a Muslim country, only six months ago and seemed to be pleased with the locals. There also snippets of people discussing him on Facebook. The conversation seems to hint that Tarrant had Shia sympathies, and the reason he shot up the mosque was because they were Sunni. I don’t know the actual origins of the picture, so it could be fake. If so, it is quite an elaborate one.

 

Conclusion

Well, no conclusion except as usual there’s more to this case than meets the eye at first glance. There’s bound to be more interesting evidence to be found.

 

P. S. You might argue that the Whites in New Zealand are invaders who don’t have the right to be there too, so they shouldn’t complain about Muslims coming there. Even if that’s true, it still doesn’t justify another wave of invaders to be allowed on the island.

Sword Art Online: Alicization is crap

I’ve seen the first 13 episodes of the latest instalment in the anime franchise Sword Art Online. I thought that would be the whole series, but probably there are going to be 24 episodes like the earlier seasons. The story is full of plot contrivances and things that make you go “that doesn’t make sense”, “why are doing this instead of that?”. The focus of this article will be more on the bad story writing instead of my usual conspiracy or socio-political commentary, but there will be a little bit of that as well.

WARNING: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!

Two Boys and a Tree

The story starts off with two young boys trying to cut down a huge tree called the Gigas Cedar. One of the boys is Kirito, one of the main characters, who appears to be playing a new VRMMO, as is to be expected from the series. The tree is sucking nutrients from the soil thus preventing the people from a nearby village from expanding their fields. The villagers have sent someone each day to cut at it for the past 300 years, but there’s only a small scratch on it. At this pace, it would take at least 1000 years to bring it down.

I sort of like the idea of having to cut down the Gigas Cedar, however initially I was wondering if Kirito is playing a new game where all you do is, be a child who has to cut down a tree that takes years, isn’t it that a pretty boring game. Who would want to play that? Later on it’s revealed that Kirito isn’t in a new commercial MMO, but it’s a millitary project to create a new kind of AI in this simulated world. In that sense the tedious tree cutting is sensible enough, however it is exemplary of one of the flaws in the writing of SAO: Alicization. The juxtaposition between story exposition in the real world and the progression of the plot in the new fantasy world, Underworld, is godawful. There are whole episodes that focus on merely the technobabble aspect of the story, whereas for the most part when the story is focused on Underworld, Kirito merely happily plays the part of a fantasy world protagonist, unconcerned on what is going on in the real world. This is problem raises its ugly head already in the first episode.

The first episode lasts around 45 minutes, instead of the usual 20-22 minutes of most animes, and the other episodes in SAO: Alicization. Throughout the first half, we see Kirito and his two friends in this fantasy world, Eugeo and Alice, engage in mundane fantasy village children’s stuff. While Kirito and Eugeo are cutting down the Gigas Cedar, Alice brings them lunch, but since it’s summer they complain that food spoils too fast, unlike in winter. So Kirito comes up with the idea of finding ice, to keep the food cool. The three children travel to the mountains encircling the human realm, they find ice, the bones of a dragon, and a Divine Object sword. On the way back, they get lost, and end up going to the other side of the mountains, next to the  Dark Territory. The children see two knights flying on dragons fight, Alice stumbles and her hand hits the ground thus violating the Taboo Index set by the church. A head pops out of nowhere, which is clearly some sort of bot administering the rules within a computer program, witnesses the violation. The children return to the village, the next day an Integrity Knight flies in on his dragon to take Alice away to the capital to be executed for her crime. Kirito and Eugeo are sad.

While all of the above was happening, I found it moderately interesting, yet a part of me was merely wondering, what is going on, why should I care about the fate of these NPCs, why is Kirito playing this game with them, where is Asuna and their other friends? This wasn’t good storytelling, since the mystery did not take me deeper into the story, instead it disassociated me from it. I knew Kirito was playing a new game, yet it took them ages to reveal to the viewer what game it is, and why Kirito is there. If this wasn’t Sword Art Online, this kind of withholding of information might have worked, but since the viewer who has seen earlier seasons, knows the background, there isn’t much mystery, only a lack of relevant information. On top of it all, after Kirito logs out, we aren’t granted an explanation either, instead we see Kirito and his friends playing Gun Gale Online and talking about a new tournament. I couldn’t care less about this side story, which isn’t even mentioned in the following 12 episodes.

 

Soul Translator

When we finally get exposition about Underworld, we learn that a company called Rath has figured out where the human soul is located within the brain, using this discovery they have made the Soul Translator technology. Using this they can create a much more realistic VR experience than the technologies from the earlier seasons, and later on it’s revealed they can clone the soul of a human into a computer program to create more realistic NPCs by connecting to your Fluctlight (the soul).

As the characters non-chalantly discuss how a company discovered the soul, something which existence philosophers and religious people have been debating for millennia, and it’s only used to make make glorified video games, all sense of reality fell away from the series. This grand discovery, and it’s merely a plot convenience for a better VR system in this anime series focusing on VR. However, how they describe it, it sounds more like Rath merely located the consciousness or the mind of a person, not the soul, but since the show uses the term Soul Translator, and also the person in charge of Rath, professor(?, or whatever his title is) Kikuoka, uses the word “soul” also in the original Japanese (魂), I just have to call it the soul as well. This show is stupid.

It’s revealed that the secret VR project Kirito is involved with wipes your memories of the experience after you log out. This detail is a also dismissed by the characters discussing it as not a big deal. I would say this is an even bigger deal than the ultimate purpose of the Rath VR project, Alicization, which is to make an advanced AI to create killer robots (not that it’s not alarming, but as a story element, it’s dull and unoriginal). If this program can wipe your memories, you have to wonder, if it could also be made to create false memories. Could they use it to make Machurian Candidate type killers, or simply brainwash people who play your new VRMMO to vote for the correct political party, or make them always buy Pepsi.

 

The Contrived Disaster

Let’s get back to the story. At the end of the first episode Kirito is attacked by a surviving member of Laughing Coffin, the player killers from season 1. If they kill you in the VR game, you die in real life, and he’s armed with a Death Gun from season 2’s Gun Gale. The attacker manages to hit Kirito, who ends up in a coma after the doctors stabilize him. However they say Kirito has brain damage and may never recover. Then he is secretly transferred to the Rath secret island facility and conveniently put into the new Soul Translator VR machine, so he can continue the Underworld game. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

I figured the point of this attack is to make the morally dubious company Rath seem more acceptable to the viewer, or at least allow Asuna, Kirito’s girlfriend, who manages to sneak onto the island, to allow them to keep Kirito in the VR machine so the story can continue. After all, the company did secretly abduct Kirito, which Kirito’s friends figured out, and were not too happy about. Yet after Asuna finds out his situation, and Kikuoka tells her it’s the only way to make him recover, by playing this VR game, she goes along with it. Talk about a plot convience based on a plot contrivance, the attack by the Laughing Coffin member.

If attack didn’t happen, there would have been no need to send Kirito to the secret facility and the AI killer robot plotline couldn’t have been revealed, or Rath would have had abduct them, and thereby making them obvious bad guys.

 

AI Rights and Killer Robots

Let’s talk about Rath and their intentions. They created a computer simulation how this fantasy world develops over time (time goes much faster in Underworld than the real world). Their intention is to perfect a proper AI to create killer robots to fight in wars to save lives of the Japanese Special Defense Forces. Professor (let’s just call him that) Kikuoka seems quite passionate about this saving lives of soldiers bit. First of all, is Japan at war in the SAO universe? It takes place in the future, so maybe it is, although it doesn’t seem like it. What’s the point in creating robot soldiers to save lives if there is no war? Also none of the characters seem concerned, including Asuna, that they’re trying to create robots to kill humans, the enemies in any hypothetical war. Or are they going to give robots to their enemies too so that neither side loses human troops? It’s not as if civilian casualties are a thing…

Another thing, more importantly is that it doesn’t seem to occur to any of the characters that maybe the robots will disobey their masters, maybe Russian hackers will program them to attack Japanese instead, maybe there’s a glitch, anything like that. Apparently movies like Terminator and Matrix do not exist in the SAO universe, an anime whose whole premise is that somebody comes up with a neat new technology, it’s abused and people end up losing their lives over it. Yet none of the characters seem bothered by this possibility. I can understand that professor Kikuoka who is an amoral mad scientist, or the company, Rath, that makes money off of it, don’t mind, but how about Asuna, who is there on location to act as the avatar of the viewer? Her only moral concerns is that Kikuoka’s research might harm the AI Fluctlights in the program, or when they upload those AIs into killer robots and they go off to die in a war. Kikuoka says he cares more about the life of a single SDF soldier’s life than the life of a 100,000 (maybe it was a million, don’t really care) Fluctlights, and Asuna gets triggered by this. Who should I be rooting for, since Kikuoka seems more reasonable here?

Kikuoka describes the fantasy world of Underworld to Asuna. He says all of the people are very obedient to law, there are no murders or theft, and they slavishly obey the Taboo Index set by the church (which apparently does not forbid rape as is revealed later). He says this is a problem since he wants to create killer robots. However later on in the series it’s revealed that in the Dark Territory the monsters such as goblins also have Fluctlights, but they are more predisposed to slaughter. So they already appear to have AI willing to murder, so isn’t their experiment a success already? Why continue with the whole Underworld VR game?

Another thing that bothered me, is that the Fluctlights in Underworld are able to use magic. What would be the point, if what the programmers are trying to do is to develop AI for killer robots in the real world? The show does sort of answer this later on though, by revealing that the Pontifex Maximus of the church uncovered these system or console commands within the program to make the Sacred Arts. Still, why wouldn’t the scientists at Rath just disable these? Is there any good reason to let them have them, except that this is a fantasy world, and fantasy worlds are supposed to have magic. One character later on says that the people of Rath want the people in Underworld to suffer, so maybe the presence of these Sacred Arts create suffering, but I would say they relieve suffering more than create it.

 

Back to Underworld

Back in Underworld Kirito and Eugeo manage to cut down Gigas Cedar by using a Divine Object sword they found in the cave with the dragon bones. Like I said earlier, I sort of liked the idea of the tree, but after it’s cut down, we don’t really see how it affects the village nearby. After that the boys, who are now teenagers, join a sword fighting high school in the capital with alleged intention of saving Alice. It’s been 6(?) years since Alice was taken away.

However at the capital the boys simply go along with the sword academy curriculum. This takes them at least two years, I believe. They don’t attempt to go find Alice, and also Kirito seems unconcerned about his situation in the real world, Asuna or his friends. He simply plays along with it. You cannot say that he has amnesia, since when he arrives back in Underworld after being shot by the Death Gun, he remembers meeting with Asuna and Sinon he tries to log out, he wonders if Eugeo is an NPC or a test player, and so on. Apparently he doesn’t care about the real world anymore.

It also makes me wonder why is there such a sword academy in the world anyway. It has been mentioned once that there are rumours of goblins from the Dark Territory who have attacked some villages, and Kirito and Eugeo fought goblins once in the caves beneath the mountains between the human realm and the Dark Territory. It’s also mentioned that there are four empires in the human realm, and the possibility of war is mentioned. So I wouldn’t necessarily call this a plot hole, but it’s simply a lack of relevant information. It’s one of the classic sins of storytelling, show, don’t tell. The purpose of such a combat based academy would be obvious in any normal fantasy world, but not here. SAO: Alicization does not show you these things. If this was a good anime like Goblin Slayer, they’d shown at least a couple of rapes and a dozens murders by goblins by the time the boys reach the academy. Also, if there has been war between the human empires in the past, it renders professor Kikuoka’s claims about Fluctlights being too peaceful moot.

Anyway, Kirito and Eugeo eventually become seniors in the sword academy, and gain a page, or squire, under them. The boys meet two one-dimensional asshole bad guys, Raios and Humbert. They emotionally bully our heroes, but the protagonists handle it well. Their pages, both female, report that Humbert has been asking his page, another female, to fill odd requests for him, such as giving him massages while she is in her underwear. Kirito and Eugeo go to have a talk with them, but apparently Humbert’s sexual harassment continues, the two pages go to have a talk with the two assholes. Eugeo hears about this and goes to confront them as well. Raios and Humbert are drinking wine in their night gowns, and reveal that the female pages are tied up on the bed. After that, they attempt to rape them. After an excruciatingly long angst scene from Eugeo, he cuts off the arm from Humbert. Raios gets his sword, and Eugeo who is emotionally messed up, and because his eye blew out due to reasons not yet properly explained (this part of the storyline does sort of intrigue), is not in the condition to defend himself. So Kirito arrives and kills Raios.

Now let’s back up a bit to analyze Raios and Humbert. From the very first time you see them, you know they are assholes. As more is revealed, you find out they are high-ranking nobles who abuse that rank to be assholes to others. It’s fine to have this sort of one-dimensional bad guys as random thugs the protagonists have to deal with in a regular action scene, but it doesn’t work here. It’s simply bad writing. Moreover, before they attempt to rape the two pages, they say they are punishing them for disrespecting high-ranking nobles. It’s all legal and does not violate the rules of the school or Taboo Index. Apparently rape is just fine according to both laws.

The actions of Raios and Humbert don’t make sense. The two pages come to complain in their room, they tie them up on the bed, and proceed to drink wine until Eugeo arrives. Why didn’t they rape the girls before he arrived? Did they want to do it in front of Eugeo to humiliate him? That was a smart move, turn their backs to an enemy with a sword, who just happened to use that sword on them. They’re only a plot convenience to allow the main characters to do something heroic, and get them arrested.

Prior to this, the world within this VR game had been presented as almost Utopian, even if the Taboo Index is quite strict. Now they expect us to believe that rape is fine. Either because no-one ever thought of something like this (but why would theft be illegal if no-one does it either?), or because it’s really just a dystopian nightmare that looks good on the surface, but deep down it’s corrupt where people like these abuse the loopholes. Fine, if that’s the case, then show, don’t tell. Because based on what we’d seen before this, this is not the case.

 

The Tower

After the incident with the attempted rape and subsequent murder, Kirito and Eugeo are arrested by an Integrity Knight, who just happens to be Alice. She’s lost her memories though. The boys’ pages come running on the scene with their swords, they ask Alice Knight to be able to bring their swords with them. She agrees, but she will keep hold of them. This action denotes an important fact; Alice is not retarded, but the writer is. Why else would she agree to bring the weapons of these two violent criminals along, unless they were to break free at some point and get those weapons? Lazy story convenience.

The boys end up in prison in the mysterious tower waiting to be executed. Kirito acts very calm, as if this was part of his plan and that they can escape easily, which they do. At this point, I couldn’t help but wonder, what was the point of the sword academy story arc? Is it only to adhere to Japanese law which states that anime always has to have high-school drama? Why didn’t they try to break into the tower two weeks after arriving in the capital? Before that they could have done a bit of scouting and information gathering. They sure claim wanted to save Alice, but didn’t do anything for a couple of years. Maybe they couldn’t get in the tower, except by being arrested. Why didn’t they go on a Grand Theft Auto-like killing spree? That would’ve done the job. Well, that wouldn’t have been heroic. The boys remember their main mission only due to two random assholes that try to rape their pages. Or they’re forced to continue it.

Why in the first place is the viewer supposed to care about anything that goes on in this fictional VR world anyway? Because they’re like real people because of Fluctlights? I don’t. How about Kirito, how to fix him? He’s the main character from the earlier good SAO seasons. He doesn’t even remember his VR childhood with Alice.

Anyway, Kirito and Eugeo break out of prison, but are stopped by an Integrity Knight. They manage to short-circuit him by mentioning him of his heritage, memories that have been suppressed, but not wiped clean. Then a female Harry Potter sends them to her library via teleport spell.

 

Exposition Girl

Kirito gets two episodes worth of exposition from Harry Potteress who is some sort of program, Cardinal System, who was supposed to take care of the world, but the Pointifex Maximus stole it from her. This excess exposition, from these episodes and from earlier try to make SAO: Alicization seem like it’s hard sci-fi. As if the technological concepts or the moral dilemmas are something to be taken seriously. They’re not. It’s simply tedious. The original SAO was a fantasy anime with a sci-fi twist. It was fun, but nothing deep. The latest season is simply crap.

Back when I saw the original season, I thought the premise wasn’t that believable either. That a company could make this dangerous technology, and some guy would be able to weaponize it, and no governmental agency would foresee it, or that so many people would blindly buy into it without being suspicious. Now that I think of it, it doesn’t sound so far-fetched. I’ve seen so many cases of AAA game publishers sell buggy messes or crap ruined by micro-transactions, and still people pre-order them so that Sword Art Online seems quite plausible.

Anyway, back to SAO: Alicization. Harry Potter reveals how Underworld was created, or how the people populated it. Originally there were four scientists who logged in, they had children, then they had children and so on. However one of those four scientists was a selfish prick, and his offspring inherited that prickishness, and now the nobility and the church are populated by such people. Overall I find the notion that being evil is inherited or genetic quite intriguing, and it may have real world parallels to it, yet in the story it doesn’t quite work. It sounds more like a plot convenience. Especially, since as the story now tries to make us believe, the world of Underworld is this dystopian nightmare where the elites oppress the masses, but we haven’t seen it except in the case of Raios and Humbert, which still seems like an isolated incident. Once again, show, don’t tell. Are the good people in the world so dumb they don’t realize what is going on?

Oh yeah, at the end of the exposition session female Harry Potter wants a hug from Kirito to know what it feels like being a human. It comes out of nowhere. Complete emotional claptrap.

That’s as far I’ve gotten in the show. I think episode 14 is out, but I doubt I can stomach to watch anymore of this. I get the feeling the script writer doesn’t have any overall arching vision for the show, instead they write one episode at a time based on what seems “cool”. It’s awful and offends the viewer’s intelligence.

Youtube HQ Shooting

Something happened to awaken me from my hibernation; the alleged shooting at the Youtube Headquarters last night. As usual, I find the story pushed by the media in this incident to be questionable, but I don’t want to jump to conclusions and call it necessarily a false flag or a hoax.

The official story is that a woman of Iranian origin, Nasim Najafi Aghdam, shot three other people, but did not manage to kill them and shot herself afterwards. The motive was supposedly Youtube censorship/demonetization of her videos. One of the people shot by Aghdam was possibly her boyfriend, according to the media.

First of all, how did she manage to get in the Youtube HQ with her gun? Don’t they have some sort of security around there? Or was she simply outside the compound when she started shooting? Does her assumed boyfriend work for Youtube, and that’s how she got there? Did she go there with the boyfriend, who thought she was simply going to complain to Youtube about their censorious actions and when she pulled the gun, he tried to stop her? Or maybe the whole story about her boyfriend is just fake news.

I just find this whole thing questionable. There have been some rumours of another shooter, a man with full body armour. This is quite a usual sighting among suspected false flags, but then the official story is that there was only one shooter and no mention of the body armoured shooter.

Then again this second shooter might be just a rumour, or even disinformation.

Then again I haven’t seen any actual evidence of any shooting having happened. No blood, no victims, no footage of a shooting. There are videos of police on the scene and people walking out of the Youtube HQ with their hands up. Although this does not necessarily imply there was no shooting, but it is also not reasonable to take the media’s word for it either. The HQ is bound to have loads of CCTV cameras in and around the compound, but I doubt we’ll be seeing any of that footage.

The victims of the incident were taken to Zuckerberg hospital, which got its name from Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg having donated to it $75 million, according to Wikipedia. Were this some sort of false flag or a hoax, it’s not a stretch to assume that this kind of hospital might be easily coaxed to participate in the hoax.

Although the alleged shooter Nasim Aghdam is of Iranian descent, there are also some claims that she was Jewish, which is interesting.

 

The internet rumour mill has been speculating whether the alleged shooter was under some sort of MK Ultra mind control. I found one picture of her wearing a butterfly shirt, which might hint to this.

 

Aghdam also looks a but trannly to me with her long neck. Sort of resembles Michael Jackson.

 

I certainly won’t buy the main stream media’s narrative on this incident, but I don’t find the go-to conspiracy theorist narrative that this was a false flag/hoax to promote gun control satisfactory either. Surely some people will use this incident to promote the old gun grab angle, but it’s possible there was something else going on. Perhaps there is a shadow war brewing within the globalist elite, and this was an attack by one faction on another. Whether it was successful or not, perhaps this thing about Aghdam is just the cover story to hide the real incident, whatever it was. It’s also possible that they made this incident look like a false flag or hoax on purpose by inserting claims about a second gunman, as they know there is a growing sentiment among some circles to suspect these incidents are false flags, and when they see hints which lean toward the false flag explanation, they take it and don’t look deeper.

It is sort of frustrating looking at these incidents, as many people still believe the official story, be they left or right leaning, but try to insert their own narrative into it. Lefties are going to claim this is why they need gun control, or perhaps ignore the fact Aghdam was Iranian and make her out to be a violent White person. The right-wing on the other hand might grab onto the fact that she was Middle-Eastern, and ignore other relevant facts because it suits their anti-immigration narrative. I agree with their anti-immigration ideas to be sure, but I don’t want to use a lie to push the narrative. The most frustrating bit though is that you know the official narrative is questionable, but it is albeit impossible to find out what actually happened.

Was the Black Pope busted for participating in Child Sacrifice Ring?

An article was published in Thepedogate.com December 24, 2017, saying the Black Pope Adolfo Pachón has resigned from the Vatican after being linked to the Ninth Circle Satanic Cult that engages in child sacrifice. This however appears to be disinformation.

The Black Pope, formally known as Superior General of the Society of Jesus, i.e. the Jesuits, is allegedly the power behind the throne in the Vatican.

The PedoGate article links to another article as its source: Neonettle.com. The Neonettle article, however, is from July 2014. It repeats the same information about Adolfo Pachón resigning due to being linked to the Ninth Circle. I also found an article from Alamoministries.com from May 2014 saying similar things, however it adds “Pope Francis, former Pope Ratzinger and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby” to the mix.

The thing is however that Adolfo Pachón, also known as Adolfo Nicolás, resigned in October 2016, well after the claims from 2014, and well before the PedoGate article. He was subsequently replaced by Arturo Sosa. Pachón’s reason for resigning was the fact that he turned 80.

I believe the websites making these claims are purposefully pushing disinformation to discredit those who are looking into Satanic pedophile rings. I do believe the members of many powerful institutions in the world engage in pedophilic ritual abuse, including but not limited to the Vatican. However making easily disproven claims such as these only benefit the culprits.
