  • @daela, I think your point may be the opening door we are looking for.

    They will have us do things that we previously believed didn’t represent who we are.

    Aren’t some leopards in this jungle constantly changing their spots already?

    Your sentence made me reflect back to one of the earliest traces of your interpretation of the “paradox” – the F…[Read more]

    How can you not be inspired by someone feeling freedom to shed shackles and truly be themselves?

    #Whatever

    Briarberg group is a lie. If Mason is discarding what we are familiar with and associate with him, doesn’t that mean that there is nothing for him but absolute freedom? Anything he has embraced in the past and anything he chooses to embrace in the future is possible.

  • I must say, to learn of Joyce’s return is, in many ways… comforting.

    @kevin Still waters run deep.
    A few weeks ago, I was unconscious in a hospital bed. When I woke up, @mike was there.
    That’s the kind of friend he is.
    Is that the same Mike I saw on Sunday?
    I choose to have faith in the man I believe he is.

  • Russell replied to the topic Calls from Mason in the forum SIGHTINGS 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    @bruinbown Sometimes… shit happens, even between friends. @mike has stood by my side more than he has turned his back.

    @sfire8 There is some upset. But I will deal with that in my own way in my own time. Rest assured.

    @larry To be clear, I was not following instruction of Mike’s doing. I needed to observe for a bit.

    I, too, can…[Read more]

  • Russell replied to the topic Calls from Mason in the forum SIGHTINGS 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    You guys haven’t seen much of me recently.  I have been out of town much of the last few of weeks. Doing some doctor stuff, too.  You know… life.

    The last few days, I have been rearranging a few things in my life. 
    Furniture.  Fixing window latches.  Locks re-keyed.
    Battening down the hatches, you might say.

    I’m not going to say much.  Frie…[Read more]

  • Russell replied to the topic Post from A in Slack in the forum SIGHTINGS 1 month, 1 week ago

    @wanda102 I understand. But, Mason is doing something sincerely and passionately and (it seems) out of an incredibly deep wish to “save the world.” Sabrina… seems to be similarly driven.
    If either of them are betrayed by those they are sincerely trying to serve… I see that as something almost as ugly as some of Mason’s tactics… it may…[Read more]

  • Russell replied to the topic Post from A in Slack in the forum SIGHTINGS 1 month, 1 week ago

    @bcbishop, even though the pronoun is “it,” my thoughts also went immediately to Sabrina and Mason. She has obviously been setting things in motion to some degree. Mason has flat-out admitted his agenda of eliminating 91 pencil-pushers. I thought “it” might refer to a specific plan that is resulting in the results the higher-ups want.

    So……[Read more]

  • Yes, @larry, several people did have odd interactions with her at that gathering. To me, it seemed like some of the people there were making her very nervous… but I cannot tell you who specifically. She just seemed generally “on edge” a bit.

  • Russell replied to the topic Phone call from Lisa in the forum SIGHTINGS 1 month, 1 week ago

    @larry, she apologized for being a disappointment to me since she had been unable to make an emotional connection with me. But… since no emotional connection was made I did not feel she had disappointed me. I had actually reached out to iConfidant to say the process was not really engaging me.
    Looking back, I wonder if the reason she did’t…[Read more]

  • Russell replied to the topic Phone call from Lisa in the forum SIGHTINGS 1 month, 1 week ago

    @larry If some of your theory is accurate about Sabrina and her return, if her goal with iConfidant was to simply gather as much data on as many folks as possible… how does that explain her barely making an attempt to connect with me? You make me wonder if she was deliberate in not connecting with me.
    She and I have only spoken a couple of…[Read more]

  • @remrelganaps, I also think there is something fishy about this. Isn’t it more likely someone on the inside would reach out to Mason? Someone who is aware of Mason and wants to use him to somehow climb the corporate ladder – raise their own value in this kill-or-be-killed business environment by riding someone else’s shooting star, maybe?

  • Russell replied to the topic Call from Mary – 10/9 in the forum SIGHTINGS 1 month, 1 week ago

    @kortneydarling, in another thread I mentioned that it would be possible participants might be contacted for help as Mason continues his “work” and moves through the list. If all this data on us is out there, then who knows who is able to reach each and everyone one of us at any time?

    To me, the odd thing is that she would give @mike any…[Read more]

  • Not sure, @coryphella Maybe he just likes to create…

    wait for it… Tension.

    Quietly backing out of the room now… teeheeehee

  • Thinking about this… it seems Mason has given us a glimpse into a bigger plan… but something is not right. Sure, he’s got 90 names and addresses to go… but one man would never be able to do this “clean up” job alone. I am sure some of these people talk outside of “work” or are at least minimally aware of each other, right? Word of this…[Read more]

  • Also, @bcbishop, if you lock yourself away from the world because you believe you are “right” – it blinds you to the actions of both friends and enemies. It makes you much more vulnerable.

  • There seems to be several references to the strengths (or “talents”) of individual participants going on.

    @coryphella and @blondie, you gals got me thinking.

    Mason brings up the talent comments made earlier? We are all valuable if we remember what are talents are? After Joyce spoke with me in person, she followed up with a phone call stating…[Read more]
