    Morning all,

    I just received a call from a woman who asked if I was a leader (totally am yep) and said the following:

    Paraphrasing: “Go to the public and select a person and make them known to us. Give us their full name and phone number. Bring just one.”

    I suppose this is where we choose a representative to go to 90013 tonight. I sure hope I understood that properly, it was my first go-round.

    So what do we want to do? Take a vote? Have people throw themselves at my mercy to see who I put up on the chopping block? I’ll want to email them the info.

    I don’t envy your position. Choose wisely!

    Everyone should post here if they are free today to go do this and @wanda102 can pick someone.

    I am free, but also had plenty of attention last year and think someone else should be picked.

    “Give us their name and phone number.”

    They have all of our names and phone numbers. Do they want to recruit somebody from the actual public?

    I’m going to add, I think they want you to bring someone outside of us or they wouldn’t have used the word “public.” I think if it were one of us, the word community would have been used. Public could be someone you know but who isn’t involved in Lust. I have a lot of friends and family who are aware of what I’m involved in but aren’t involved. Perhaps one of them could be an option for you?

    They said public specifically? Sounds like it means a civilian to me. Someone not already in the game. That is also something that may require leadership. Getting the lot of us to volunteer for this is easy, getting someone not in our crazy house may take a bit more work.

    I’m throwing @winstonsmith‘s hat into the ring, as I work in Orange County and he can be available much, much sooner than I would be. Also, he’s one of those nifty loser people and he’s fun at parties.

      @kipsie You take that back. I am *not* fun at parties! I am available, but other people are far more deserving of the opportunity.

      Let @thebuz go, he hasn’t strangled anyone in months, and he’s probably getting antsy about it. I can hardly think of someone more strangle-worthy than Noah. He says he’s already dead anyway, let’s put that to the test and see how dead he really is.

    I like the idea of community input, but personally I believe the final decision should rest with @wanda102, as instructed. After all, Cristen’s decision may be a way for the person arranging this meeting to learn a little bit about her.
    (Sorry Cristen… not trying to make you paranoid or anything, but it seems you have eyes on you right now!)

    That being said, I can be available. But… the decision is Cristen’s.

    Shoot do we really think it’s a member of the public? I can ask a non-Lust friend I suppose. There wasn’t an option for clarification on the call, which is to be expected but kinda a drag. She definitely said “public,” yes. “Go to the public.”

    maybe they don’t consider “Losers” party of a ‘Community’.

    @wanda102 I think this is a test to see if you are a true leader and not someone who will say she is just to get a meeting. I firmly believe they are wanting someone who isn’t involved. I believe this so strongly that I am pulling my name out of the hat. I wouldn’t want to be in that meeting if it were a fuck up. Because both of would be blamed for not thinking it through. As I said in my previous post, they would have said community not public. Community is a huge word among us. It’s not said lightly. I think you need to bring someone not involved in Lust.

    @thebuz… Ha! My dumbass was thinking about Tension. :/ Sorry about that.

    I’d suggest have two people at the ready. Someone from the community here that is available, and a friend of yours not participating in this already. Send them one and if they come back saying that’s not what they meant have the other option at the ready right away.

If you want to draw names in a hat, cool!. If you don’t want to do anything, fuck it…. see what they do. You’re not a lab rat.

    Ok, they clarified that it WAS in community and then gave me 15 minutes to pick someone and I didn’t get info from anyone quickly enough so in my last minute rush I popped over to Slack and took what I genuinely hope was @julierei‘s correct info from her profile. That was intense. Do me proud, Jules.

    That said if they said “public”, I’d think that doesn’t mean us. I’d suggest head downtown with a friend not involved with Lust, maybe someone who was involved in Tension, but not on the forums, and dressed business casual of course, ready for anything.

    Def make a periscope account, so you can share the news later, whatever that might be.

    @michelle fantastic question that I don’t yet know the answer to. I suppose I could’ve chosen myself, but leaders delegate responsibility, no?

    @bcbishop great point, being new to the community and forced to make a quick choice like, that I picked @julierei knowing that she is active and having spoken with her several times. It’s a cruel choice but that’s the nature of this thing I suppose.

    @wanda102 That’s an excellent choice, I’ve met her as well @julierei is a huge supporter and she is also good with periscope, and social media. So she’ll be able to get the word out to the rest of us quickly.

    Perhaps periscope the interaction unless your asked to stop, I have a feeling will all be watching. I’ll be at Tiki No in North Hollywood for Losers Club tonight.

    To be fair @thebuz I wasn’t aware that Julie had had one on ones before just that she had gone through Tension, and does a lot of community social outreach. She comes on my radar a lot and has always been friendly so she’s the first person who came to mind when I was pressed to make a quick choice. No malintention.

    @dawsonc no you’re right. For those of us who went through Tension/Ascension we did give up a lot more personal information to the OSDM. Right now email is their only way to contact anyone new aside from those who were judged as worthy in Noah and Sarah’s eyes who were then asked to send more info, which is probably why no one who is new to the community has gotten a call yet. Until now.

    Can I please say something about the newbies vs. people who have had interactions thing?

    I am ALL FOR new people getting interactions, seriously. I fully support this.
    However.
    It’s a new year and a new game. We love this too, and also want to partake. Shit we’ve been waiting too, and many of us had a hand in “building” this. I’m not averse to the older generation also getting interactions. Last year, there were people who got lots of interactions and people who got none. It’s not a “fair” thing. It’s a story, again, it’s not about what anyone GETS, it’s about the story we all experience.

    There will *also* be reasons why some people are chosen for experiences that will seem unfair but are COMPLETELY logical when considered from other points of view. Fairness is never the only reason anyone gets chosen, and as time goes on it may not even be a main reason someone gets chosen. We are all in this together.

    So, go @julierei, and @wanda102! Have a blast, or…get your hearts broken, since this isn’t a warm and fuzzy thing. πŸ˜‰

    Exactly @wanda102, you were judged worthy. And I’m sure Noah sees that his faith in you was not unfounded. As you said, a boss delegates. Why walk into a risky situation when you can send someone else? You made a great choice that ensures we all stay informed– though they might be a tad dissappointed since they already have such a clean set of @julierei‘s fingerprints. I think the System has big plans for you.

    Even though this was her decision, it did play into the trend so far of “winners” being picked. I’m sure OSDM knows that FOMO is a thing and that does foster “lust” for attention. I do get the feeling the interaction tonight will change depending on who shows up. And given @julierei‘s past run-in’s with the OSDM I’m sure tonight will be a doozy.

    Last year, the “interaction jealousy” thing was the low-point of Tension. So my best advice for LUST is to just relax, be present and go with the flow. Let the chips fall where they may. Everyone wants shit to happen to them and be fucked with (it’s what we live for) but if you try and force it, you’re just gonna be frustrated. The best things happen when you aren’t expecting them.

    As for anyone who is severely disappointed on not getting one on one interaction – if you’re really that starved for affection I’ll set up a Hug Party when this is all over and everyone is allowed to come and hug whomever, but it is only one hug per person and entry fee is being nice to your fellow Lusters. (I haven’t been on the forums that much, is that what we’re calling ourselves?)

    Anyway, best of luck today @julierei !

    FUTURE HUMANS: Four Ways We May, or May Not, Evolve

    November, 2009

    • This reply was modified 7 months, 3 weeks ago by  Kyle Bown.

    Basically, it’s an article discussing the four ways humans may evolve in the future.

    1. They won’t. human evolution is dead because there is interbreeding and no isolated populations.
    2. We continue to do so naturally through sexual selection, viruses, etc.
    3. We do, but it’s through electronic augmentation, genetic manipulation, etc.
    4. We do but it’s from isolated populations in off-world colonies.

    I feel like 3 is the most interesting of these for humanity in this moment. 1 is kind of pointless, 2 is not really anything we can affect and 4 is a bit too far off.

    Thoughts?

       Lawrence Meyers

      @bruinbown There is a very worrisome few paragraphs in that article, Kyle.

      Under subheading 3, regarding “Transhumanism”….

      “Whereas the current human generational cycle takes some 20 years, a digitalized individual could replicate themselves in seconds or minutes, Bostrom said. Of course copying yourself isn’t without complications, Bostrom acknowledges.
      “Which one of them is you?” he writes. “Who owns your property? Who is married to your spouse?”

    @bruinbown If Julie was describing a magazine cover, I’m not sure if one exists for that article specifically. The cover of the issue from which the article you posted comes doesn’t mention anything about humanity or its future, so I’m still looking for the image @julierei might have seen.

    Question: How would this have gone down if a member from the public NOT involved with the community was chosen? I’m sure it would have been a different path.

    Also: If @julierei had chosen to sacrifice her own spot in the seminar it’s very possible she would have been immediately rejected. WWND What Would Noah Do!

    That coffee stain is interesting. That’s been on a couple of OOA documents as well.

    @lilmsfancpants @mike So we’d always associated the coffee stain with ~four, right? But if ~four really is gone, it’s weird for a coffee stain to very obviously appear in more possibly OSDM or OSDM-adjacent documents, unless either

    A) our queen ~four is alive and well
    B) the coffee stain was never from ~four
    C) something is random

    @julierei I’m assuming this is the sheet you wrote names on? Was the coffee stain there originally, or was that added after the fact?

    • #4894
       Julie R Goldstein 
      Participant

      @addisonborn – Yes, it’s definitely the sheet I wrote on. It’s my handwriting, and a little tidbit: I couldn’t remember Cristen’s last name, so I wrote it as (wanda102) and it was still omitted. There was no coffee stain on it when I wrote everyone’s name down. That was added after the fact either digitally or by actual coffee.

    @addisonborn – Correct! I believe we first saw that on Four’s letters. I hate to admit it, but I’m pretty sure she’s dead. We heard her Jedi spirit talk to us at The One. @russell once mentioned that in his reply to Noah, he made it about the corporate environment. What if this is one big corporation…and in these types of corporations, people get trained and carry onward things within their training. What if Four was a trainer and made it a point to put coffee stains on things for some reason?

    That’s some seriously heartbreaking shit if that’s true! Like a little “miss you guys…” note from her. Ugh.

    Nothing is random. Except @macbethinabathtub‘s rotten apple from the van driver. That might be. But yeah, the coffee is absolutely a clue. It’s all about the details. I swear the music playing in Lock and Key was handpicked for my meeting. The songs changed at such CRAZY-perfect times.

    @mike I don’t personally attribute the coffee stain to ~Four. See these for examples:

    and

    Heavily marked-up letter by ~Four LINK

    If I had to guess who’s coffee rings, I’d say it’s someone other than the Gatekeepers… perhaps the OSDM overseeing all?

    @julierei since you brought up the stain being added digitally… you’re right. here’s proof (and sorry for my piss poor photoshop “skills” – it’s still early.)

    @mike @lilmsfancpants – since it IS photoshopped, it could be the other way as well. something familiar to give us security. they’re possibly misrepresenting whoever they’re working with, and definitely taking advantage of our nostalgia.

    what the fuck have we gotten ourselves into.

    @bruinbown: I inquired with @julierei and she confirms you did indeed find the correct magazine: The Next Human, National Geographic, April 2017

    The pertinent article is about how we, as a race, evolve, and what influences that evolution. A quote that sums it up in basic terms:

    Does evolution now mean not just the slow grind of natural selection spreading desirable genes, but also everything that we can do to amplify our powers and the powers of the things we make β€” a union of genes, culture, and technology? And if so, where is it taking us?

    Also, it’s interesting to note: ” **icons** which appear throughout this story, depict cultural and biological milestones in human evolution. ” Yes, many, many little symbols throughout.
