The whole Y2K thing was as hyped up as Titor's hoax.

No. The Titor Y2K prognostications were the result of the guests on Coast-2-Coast, especially Gary North, and the new form of mass communication - the Internet. Group Titor was playing on the hype that had already existed at the time of the first fax.

 

Y2K issues were not new in 1998. The issue of computerized six digit date rollover problems first came to light in the 1960's. The problems with thirty year mortgages and long-term bonds (30-year bonds) was obvious to the financial sector prior to1969. The "Y2K Horizon" began to have problems in 1969 because the computers that were limited to six digit date codes began to have difficulties on 1-1-1970.

 

The real issue for Y2K was not Windows or any other commonly used system. The issue was for embedded systems that had been in place for decades that used proprietary OS's. Fixing Win-98 was staight forward. Fixing the odd-ball OS items was also straight forward. It was just expensive and time consuming because the users had to call back retired programmers who developed the languages so that they could make appropriate patches.

is the new trend!!!

No. It isn't the "new trend".

 

Anyone who lived through and can remember 1962 also remembers the fall-out shelter nutz. I live in Santa Barbara and did so in 1962. Our community was targeted for several multi-megaton devices. Digging a shelter ten feet underground was simply digging a better grave for my community members had the Soviets chosen to unleash the dogs of nuclear war.

 

But it is rather revealing as far as a comment goes. Over the years I've had two mining engineers contact me who identified Titor's gadget schematic as a kit-bashed BOC (British Oxygen Corp) modular NBC detector that was commonly installed in community fall-out shelters in the late 1950's on to the late 1960's. They've even identified the round vessels in the schematic as the holding tanks for intake air samples and the "voids" on the right side of the schematic as the area where modular PC boards were slid in for a specific purpose (identification of nuclear, biological or chemical agents).

" leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore, usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief. Like other fairy creatures, leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha D Danann of Irish mythology.[1] Popular depiction shows them as being no taller than a small child. Their trade is that of a cobbler or shoemaker."

I think the real problem with Titor's Y2K 'disaster' was his rather preposterous notion that the world was going to grind to a halt as a result. But even if the utility companies had fallen victim to it......though I am no expert in how the power grid works, I would find it incomprehensible that there was no existing proviso for simply overiding the date parameters altogether and letting the juice flow.

 

I simply cannot believe that anywhere in the power grid there is any device that would say ' no, you cannot have electricity as it's now Jan 01 1900 and you haven't been born yet ' and that even if any such device did exist it could not simply be over-riden.

Incidentally....Titor's second fax to Art Bell was posted at almost exactly the same time that the best seller game of all time.... 'Half Life'.... was released. I recall buying it at that time. A game that plays very much on people's fears of a total breakdown in technology with disastrous consequences.

 

Also....as an aside....if you have ever played the game 'Prey' you hear a great spoof performance by Art Bell...

Our Half Life?

 

Understanding John Titor

 

You will hear people who haven't researched Titor's story well claim it to be a hoax, but to this day it remains internally consistent and 'undebunked'. Start with the premise of multiple worlds theory being true -- that would mean that we live in a probabilistic universe in which some things are more changeable than others. The laws of physics for example might actually vary across widely disparate probabilistic universes, but not any of the universes that our own could ever evolve into. So the physical operation of Titor's time machine is not likely to vary from our worldline compared to the one that Titor claimed to grow up in. Nor would you expect major social trends and world events to vary greatly from one nearby worldline to the next, like the assaults upon the American Constitution we have witnessed over Bush's eight or so years and the apathy of most Americans toward those assaults, or the nonexistence of WMDs in Iraq. It would take a VERY LARGE DIVERGENCE between worldlines to make those kinds of things turn out different from one to the next.

 

What CAN easily change between nearby worldlines however are details about some of Titor's predictions like the dates and intensity of civil war he described, date the LHC would come online, and the date of global nuclear war. These are all easily modifiable by human intention and should not be expected to remain the same from one worldline to another ESPECIALLY in the case where you have a reasonably intelligent psychopath like Karl Rove whose plans may have been modified as a result of Titor revealing them to us, thereby GREATLY CHANGING OUR WORLDLINE. It is true that Titor didn't think we would change our worldline, but then again he was pretty cynical about the sheeplike apathy of contemporary Americans of his worldline and ours during the timeframe he was here. But he was just a soldier, not a prophet, and time travel would still be pretty new in only two and a half decades. It would therefore be wrong to consider him infallible, and people also forget that he didn't care whether we believed him or not! Titor explained that we could change our worldline if we wanted to badly enough, and Titor's story remains consistent with DETAILS actually changing while MAJOR things would not, and have not.

 

It is true that the Bush attacks upon our Constitution never sparked overt civil war, but it should be understood unambiguously that American freedoms were indeed under attack, that civil war could have easily broken out if Bush had pushed things far enough, and that many minor conflicts that had the potential to escalate were filtered out from the public consciousness by a compliant news media failing to report them. He never used the domestic relocation camps FEMA operates for example, whereas in Titor's original worldline they may have been used for the internment of Americans under the guise of imprisoning 'domestic terrorists' and we certainly came very close to accusations of 'domestic terrorists' in our worldline. That is all it would have taken to cause our timeline to diverge significantly from Titor's, pulling back just enough to stop the overt civil war. But anyone who doubts that our civil liberties were under attack and actually compromised by the Bush administration hasn't been paying attention very well. Titor's predictions about that were spot on, and nobody could have reasonably envisioned that in 2000 or 2001. That is validation no skeptic can deny.

 

John Titor told us our timeline could be changed

 

Similarly, the LONG delay in starting the LHC could easily have been manufactured so that the pre-warned governments would have the opportunity to research Titor's claims out of the public eye, remember how Titor indicated that governments would be very threatened by the prospect of time travel? The logical thing is that Titor's warnings to us were picked up by the very types of people that in his worldline did all the evil things he described, but in our worldline they had to go undercover so as to not be perceived as precisely following Titor's predictions. Consequently it is stupid and wrong to quibble over details AS IF there was no such thing as multiple universes, AS IF the smaller things couldn't be deliberately altered. We are only left in a state of uncertainty over small details today, while the bulk of the evidence, the major events not likely to be easily changed between worldlines, do support Titor as genuine.

 

Titor indicated that the next President would continue the policies of the former (Bush Jr. we now know) and while being well-meaning, would not change the direction of anything. That description exactly fits McCain and MAY fit Obama, but probably not; we are going to find out in the next few years by how aggressive and successful Obama turns out to be in stabilizing American and world financial markets and international tensions. The most likely situation which fits the evidence best is that McCain won the last election in Titor's worldline, he just kept on doing the same stupid warmongering that Bush did, and consequently there was nuclear war in 2015. But in our worldline enough of us were warned by Titor to make a difference -- the online world is much more powerful than most people realize yet -- and combined with the bad guys pulling back the police state to deliberately avoid Titor's predictions we have instead elected a much smarter and more capable President that is quite hard to imagine following in Bush's footsteps like McCain obviously would have. Consequently it is likely that Titor's story was PROBABLY true, but our timeline changed due to his presence much more than Titor expected it might, and that we now have a chance to avoid the nuclear war of 2015. That chance would be amplified by whatever extent we are able to make progress toward Obama's stated intentions to ratchet down the nuclear weapons in the world. Our major threats are therefore not foreign terrorists and foreign countries but domestic right-wingers soaked in fear and hate (i.e. Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter, etc.) and wanting to see Obama and America fail so that more war and strife would be justified.

 

Takehome lessons

 

Be smart, people. Titor came seemingly out of nowhere with a message about the direction our culture was headed and the consequences that would follow if nobody cared, and indeed he was correct about the major directions things would go. While details have not been 100% correct that is what multiverse theory predicts across slightly divergent worldlines as Titor illustrated by books not written and sporting events ending differently. But MAJOR things are less likely to be changed, so they are the best indicators of Titor's authenticity. Sure it could be just an amazing coincidence that Orwell's dystopia came late but reason and logic in the light of the internal consistency of Titor's worldview cannot falsify his story; on the contrary the test of time so far supports it. There have been many attempts to discredit Titor's story, by impersonating him and claiming to know his mother and even fabricating additional documents to conflate his original story with falsehood. Self-styled 'debunkers' seize on any discrepancy, typically ignoring or never understanding the implications of multiverse theory, and spout some of the wildest conclusions as if they have proven something with utter certainty. Their denial of any rational scientific view of accepting reality whatever the evidence indicates it to be invalidates whatever agenda it is they are driven by.

 

I know that the world I live in now is not the one that Titor described growing up in, although it easily could have been. That is consistent with divergence between worldlines created by the forewarning we received. Millions of people learned about Titor's story and watched it begin to play out at least, waiting for the other shoe of full blown civil war to drop. That had to have an effect. If Titor's worldview is correct enough of us cared to change the worldline, and Obama's inauguration would be evidence of that as most of us have chosen hope and change over hate and fear. Certainly hate and fear describe the direction Titor's worldline took, and since hope and change seem necessary requirements for changing the timeline, we may have exceeded Titor's opinion of us after all. Time will tell but we are not out of the woods yet. I like to think that the people of Titor's worldline that he judged so harshly did not have the benefit of the warning he gave us, and their normal human tendencies to place trust in their leaders might account for a lot of the 'apathy' that let things get much worse for them. We on the other hand know better by benefit of being warned, desired change, and it looks like it is happening. Only the stupidly warlike and apathetic type of Americans Titor so despised when he first got here could still cause Titor's prediction of global nuclear war to come true, and while there are still plenty of them, we have proven ourselves smart enough as a nation to abandon hate and fear as motivators and instead seek something greater and more noble for our country. You should still pay attention to whatever new evidence arises and keep your mind open to it, but don't be swayed by the arguments of lightweight right-wing loudmouths who will claim the story a hoax because they are speaking from superficiality and ignorance and they would be among the Americans that Titor detested for their complacency, apathy, and willingness to accept the status quo. There are still many of them and they would drag us down with them if they could. But we are better than that, America is better than that, we are not driven toward nuclear war like so many lemmings headed toward a cliff so long as we remain aware that WE create the world we live in. That we have the ability to guide the outcome of our worldline explains how we can have free will and is perhaps the most important message Titor gave us.

I didn't tend my garden this year--just let it grow wild.

 

There were a lot of of evening primroses from a plant that went to seed last fall. It was usually full of the small black and yellow bumble bees--I think they are called "carpenter bees--which for all I know could have been fairies wearing little Pittsburgh Steeler uniforms. I hasten to add that I am not implying that Ben Rothlisberger and his teammates are fairies, for Heaven's sake!

 

They spent their time working amidst the primroses. Bees are serious little creatures but not a problem unless you stand between them and their job.

 

There was also an abundance of Queen Anne's lace, whose austere whiteness (except for the tiny purple flowerette in the center of the umbrel) suggests that the lace did not come from the queen's panties. Also seedling strawberry rhubarb (which really has nothing to do with strawberries except the color), and a patch of spearmint, which with some crushed ice and a half a quart of Southern Comfort would have made a wonderful mint julep (if we had had some Southern Comfort).

 

There were swarms of bugs and bees out there a few months ago, circulating between the primroses, morning glories and cosmos. Plenty of black and yellow striped flying bugs of undetermined species--not bees,not wasps (although there was a beautiful large black wasp that showed up several times a day) but something else altogether.

 

But the flowers of summer are gone, now, and as Robert Frost says, "Up my foot, to stay atop, another year of snow." :)

The trouble is.......that just isn't true. Titor was resoundingly debunked a long time ago

 

That is all it would have taken to cause our timeline to diverge significantly from Titor's, pulling back just enough to stop the overt civil war. But anyone who doubts that our civil liberties were under attack and actually compromised by the Bush administration hasn't been paying attention very well.

Not really. People have claimed the Constitution, or their fundamental liberties, were under attack ever since there was a Constitution. Titor nowhere predicts 911...or any of the specific outcomes such as the invasion of Iraq. His is just a general gripe about civil liberties....of the sort that has led people for decades to be holed up in some log cabin with their shotgun and a 'Feds Keep Out !' sign at the entrance. Nothing new in it at all.

Ah yes.......whenever a Titor prediction failed, one had the convenient cop-out of falling back on 'divergence' in timelines.

 

In other words.....Titor could have predicted that pigs will fly, and there'd still be believers insisting that he got it right in some other timeline. The whole logic of Titor story is absurd....where a person can predict whatever they like and then have some ready made excuse built in if it fails. This is sort of like a coin with heads on both sides.

 

As for being smart.......the smart people recognised Titor as a hoax a long time ago,

There is a very specific term for this absurdity: It is called "Popper unfalsifiable", in memory of the great scientific philosopher Karl Popper who first defined that REAL science can only be falsfied, not "proven". So if you set up a "theory" that can never be falsified, by definition it is pseudoscience. And that is exactly what Titor's story is: pseudoscience.

 

Anyone who says any different is absolutely clueless...no matter what they say.

Not hard to see why people believe in Titor....when the 'logic' of their belief is such that almost any faux pas in the Titor story has a getout clause.

 

It is actually very similar to what I've found in religious belief. A sort of circular logic....a bit like this :-

 

Q :- Why do you believe in the Bible ?

 

A :- It's the word of God.

 

Q :- Who says it's the word of God ?

 

A :- God does.

 

Q :- But why do you believe in God ?

 

A :- Because the Bible says he exists.

I read this post and did a search on youtube for" 177 tempus edax rerum" and found a video posted by Larry from Kay on the rest of the info but I am having a hard time posting links on the device I am using so I will probably need Kerr's help again in converting it over to something you can click on and watch. The thing I don't understand is it talks about two johns also. But there is a part in there where it talks about someone validating that it is who he really says he is. It mentions a B52 song. I wrote Larry and asked him if I was the one who was suppose to be validating this other john and he said he didn't know and he would ask his client. Of course the client never responded. I am thinking to myself...that is not the secret song why didn't he just use the secret song. Even if john was fake he would remember the song and could post it. I have no idea what the B52 song is suppose to be so I told larry well maybe someone else is suppose to verify him. I waited and waited but no one else posted anything on the video.

 

Now, I will say this...when I received my copy of the book in the mail it was signed and a message was written to me and at the bottom was a B52 song. But to me that doesn't verify that this is the real john it only verifies to me that it is possible that whoever wrote that letter also sent the book to me. What I can't understand is if they really wanted me to verify the real john why didn't they use the secret song? I never did understand what that B52 referrence was suppose to be in the book....maybe the other pamela knows???? If there was two johns I think they should have told me that in the beginning!

 

The only thing weird around those dates is that the thread went corrupted and john had asked for me to resend my previous emails because he had lost my other ones. I have no idea what this all means because there being two johns is new news to me. But what the heck does the B52 song mean? I have no idea. It doesn't verify john to me.

 

There were so many other things he could have used as a verifier. We talked for hours in chat and we emailed A LOT. But if there are two johns...I have no idea what that really means.the secret song was told to me in chat not email though so if there were two johns I don't know what that means. Unless someone is trying to guess at the song. Or is "two johns" a way to get around telling me the secret song? I told larry I am only telling the truth about this whole thing and to me it does not verify john to me only that it is possible that the person that wrote the letter also sent me the book. But I can't help thinking if the whole thing is just fake why didn't they just use the secret song? Verification would have been easy for me to do. Unless...someone else is going to verify him. ????? Just posting the facts as I know them. I have no idea who that "other" john is. Maybe Kerr can post the link. Or someone can find it by looking for 177 tempus edax rerum on you tube. That's how I found it. I can't post links from here. Lryhaber posted it on there from Kay.

Yes it is. Thankyou Kerr for posting it. This is the first I ever heard of there being two John's but in all fairness maybe there is something to be said of Darby's "group Titor" because according to Kay there was more than one John. Now I have to figure out which one said what to me and who I said what to? I guess there really was a group Titor after all. Except they were all different Johns. ????

All I know is I can't verify it as the john I knew. I have no idea why it was posted. It doesn't make any sense to me why would john need to find his way back using divergence codes? I thought, according to his story they were automatically saved as he traveled in his computer. Like I said ...doesn't make sense to me. Why would there be two johns anyway? There would be way more than two wouldn't each one be different?
