    Hi everyone, When Titor was posting, TTI was running on an old version of Ultimate Bulletin Board: https://web.archive.org/web/20010422203520/http://www.xone.net/tti/board/ubbhtml/Forum1/HTML/000433.html Somewhere along the line, those original threads got corrupted/lost. Whether that was caused by the software acting up or Mop's server just eating itself, I can't say. Remember that Titor's first thread broke after it hit 11 pages and that the server itself seemed to have consistent issues (especially near the end of Mop's ownership). I do know that Mop didn't purposely delete any of that information. As you've seen with TTI/Curious Cosmos over the years, converting and updating sometimes causes data loss or corruption. That's just how it goes with personal websites sometimes, and we're talking about very early forum software. Back then, most free/afforable forum scripts were pretty rickety. By the time I came around, all that remained of the original threads were: 1: Darby's own copies he'd saved to his personal Dropbox 2: An export Mop gave me of the corrupted content (basically just a text file with a lot of encoded character garbage that needed cleaning up) 3: Archive.org's copy of the site I used all three of those as references to reconstruct Titor's threads. However, IP addresses weren't part of the archived content because viewing that was a function of the original software pulling that info from the database on the fly. There was never a way to recover any of that, even before we moved to the xenForo software in 2012 or when I took over in late 2014. While I was messing with that stuff and getting everything migrated to my own server, I asked Mop about the IP address out of curiosity. He told me that at the time, he'd looked it up and it ended up tracing back to Celebration High School. He didn't have the original IP address and didn't share the method he used to look the IP up. He only had that one bit of information to share.

    The following is a group that helps people develop different types of 'abilities' within a forum format: The Veritas Society They also have an extensive library of downloadable books: Veritas Library As far as joining a group, there are several, however, I prefer these two : Builders of the Adytum Ordo Templi Orientis Keep in mind, this is serious stuff, and I am not specifically endorsing any group or anything they do. Reading through their material and making any decisions or taking any actions are entirely the responsibility of those who travel into those realms of study.

    You may choose to talk to either good or evil entities. Just as us humans there are both good and evil.

    So, Elon Musk wants to start experimenting with inserting a chip into a human brain and merging it with AI. He claims it will help people with brain injuries. Can you imagine if this gets into the hands of the wrong people? All these super hero movies will come true. https://www.vice.com/en_au/article/7xgnxd/elon-musk-announces-plan-to-merge-human-brains-with-ai?utm_source=vicefblocalau&fbclid=IwAR2Mh42GlFhOkAWQj_qnOLrSJpWjjWEqWHX776mfGNjOilN-_g7MDDytwnw

    If everyone will remember with me... it it was my wife’s passing that I left here. its been 10 years ,Jan 25.2009 KerrTexas was a solid support at the time and I will always remember him for it. also like to say hi to Einstein and HDRKid (lol) Paula was receiving a regular bashing daily,back then, and I see the tradition continues. I did get to speak to her quite a lot back then and have missed our conversation.

    You can always GREP through the text files and see if any of the header info(or dates) pop up. —————- I'm truly not as fascinated with the entire TITOR story line than I was with the science behind it all. if it wasn’t for RMT and Darby I never would have ever been able to wrap my mind about it.

    The Carrington CME event happened back in 1859 and there is evidence that such an event happens around every 150 years. 1959 would be 100 years and then add 50 more years and you'll get 2009. We are ten years past the average time for another CME event. The difference is that we now have our homes connected to many miles of conductors. I expect that it may be wise to have a few fire extinguishers handy. I have seven large ones standing all around the house. We may receive a warning of around 24 to 48 hours? Now try to think of what life would be like after another CME and plan ahead by reading books like: Lights Out, One Second After, and the fifteen books written by, Joe Nobody called: Holding their own.

    "The Planetary Society announced Wednesday that a small satellite it launched a month ago had successfully demonstrated the ability to change its orbit with a solar sail." This is pretty cool. We are learning how to steer satellites. It makes them more useful because you can move them elsewhere. They call it solar sailing. They're going to check out an asteroid with it. https://spacenews.com/planetary-society-declares-solar-sailing-mission-a-success/

    Seems the merging of AI ( electronic / technology ) with humanity is inevitable. And the idea isn't really new. Transhumanism OMNI magazine had an article about a company trying to do the same thing as Musk, but with bio-chips. The idea was to develop biological computer chips that could grow into a human brain and provide a connection to a main frame. This article was published in the late 80's. Also there are some scientists working on the same idea with nanotechnology. The government, or a corporation, could ( and probably would ) control people through programming. Also would create a wide division between the have's and have-nots. How could anyone that does not have the technology compete against someone that does have it? If I could learn Mandarin Chinese by a quick download, and you can't, kind of put's you in a tough spot, doesn't it? What else could a AI equipped person do that a non AI person could not ?

    Hey guys! Checking in. Work's got me busy developing some new stuff so it'll be another week or two before I can get back to building here. Everything is going well

    You raise a good point. I had the same thought that we may not understand time at all. I compare time as if we were on a carousel and every event may affect a change in that time loop. If that is true then maybe future beings can jump off on the inside or outside of the time loop? Phil Corso's brother-in-law told me back in 1965 that our government was working with aliens on their technology that included time travel. At the time I was told this I did not believe him. Now my question is if a few folks have that technology what mischief would transpire? Ask yourself what you might do with that ability? Leo Zagami and Karen Hudes talk about such things.

    Florida will only get partial eclipse. But if you know anyone in like, um, Texas, can stay there and experience the eclipse in totality. Am sure will be hearing more about the event as the date gets closer. Link to map and who will see what ....... ( APRIL 8, 2024 TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE MAP )

    Will be good for sure, still a while away though. There's been some supermoon/blood moons down my way the last year which captured the attention. The only thing might be if your planning on clearing out that fridge on the night you may not see anything:)

    Featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not! Dinosaurs are some of the most fascinating creatures to have ever walked this planet. Looking at a specimen in a museum, it’s tough to image these titans as living, breathing creatures, which could have peered right into our top-story windows. But, there’s one species, in particular, that’s truly captivated us: Tyrannosaurus Rex. Terrifying in Jurassic Park, yes, but what about its particularly benign trait? Those sad, stumpy little arms. Well, it looks like Rexy will get the last laugh, as research suggests those arms may have been much more useful (and dangerous) than once thought. At the 78th annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting last October, scientists from Stockton University investigating the limbs of some of these magnificent creatures’ closest living relatives presented some extraordinary findings. The theory is that those feeble arms were much, much more flexible than we’ve long thought. T. rex (and other theropods) were probably able to rotate their palms upwards and inwards, with a range of motion great enough to allow them to perform a clapping motion. Applause might be a concept lost on dinosaurs (with the exception of Barney, obviously), but this is still super impressive. Through the complex technique of X-ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology, the researchers compared the way that alligator and turkey limbs moved. They have more complex elbow joints than humans and other mammals, with both forearm bones pivoting on the joint and moving sideways towards the upper arm with the shoulder movements. The forearm bones of mammals aren’t capable of these movements, but it seems that Tyrannosaurus Rex was. It may not sound like very much, and it’s speculative, but there’s potential for this to be a huge dino-deal. One possible conclusion to be drawn here is that the ability to rotate the arms and bring them inwards towards the chest actually was key in gripping and delivering bites to prey. Ever since the noble T-Rex was first excavated, the debate about those arms has raged on. Perhaps they were used to grip partners while mating. Maybe they were vicious slashing weapons (not that it needed another weapon; it’s estimated to have boasted an absurd bite force of 12,800 pounds, among the highest of any land animal ever!). Or maybe they were a means of getting the great beast off the ground from a prone position. Some continue to argue that they were just a vestigial evolutionary feature and literally useless. Stockton University’s new research isn’t irrefutable proof or disproof of any one possibility, but one thing’s for sure: those arms are clearly much more than just the subject of jokes and inflatable costumes. Where will this lead next? Will it serve to shed more light on the scavenger/hunter question, seeing that Tyrannosaurus Rex may have been better equipped to hunt than we thought? Next, the team plans to compare the forelimb bones of Allosaurus—another famous theropod—with its modern-day relatives, to better determine how possible all of this is. In the meantime, it’s astonishing to see that there’s still so much more to learn about these ancient, iconic creatures. Case in point: in early January 2019, researchers from the Universities of Reading and Lincoln determined that there was an animal with a bite force that is, pound for pound, 320 times stronger than that of the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex. Which animal? The humble Galapagos ground finch. Clearly, there are many more fascinating truths about dinosaurs to discover (not to mention the awesome, terrifying power of the Galapagos ground finch, which weighs 33 grams).
