Answer: when you get lost in it.
In lieu of an update, here’s a taste of what’s been going on today with the shadow-seeking groundhog, via a Google chat with sweatyk:
me: just had a tweet convo with Kubrick’s daughter
Keith: Is she still a Scientologist?
Sent at 5:46 PM on Sunday
i dont know
I will sic M* on it
Keith: Read the exchange. She sounds buttoned up
does this mean I am getting close to the secret?
Keith: It would seem. Send me your piece
me: is that an order?
Keith: What’s the password?
Keith: He’s an asshole
me: i have more sympathy for him now i have glimpsed the secret
Keith: That he’s self obsessed and ocd?
me: SK = JT
me: it is more than one sort of confession
Keith: Moon landing?
me: besides that
Keith: He hates his audience
me: woody allen syndrome
Keith: None more than those that claim to understand him and his work
me: the truly fooled
here’s a riddle and if you get close to the answer i will send the piece: if Kubrick is a sorcery, what’s the end of his sorcery?
me: take your time (like a couple of days at least)
not a one word answer
me: and not just one answer either so you have a better chance of hitting the bard
clue: think about what sorcery means
Keith: By the end you mean his intention
me: yes, and the achieved result
he was a master
Keith: Grand master
me: yeah yeah
Click on the first link about the shining
Shot by shot analysis with time codes and everything
And camera angles of degree. Holy shit
me: ok but the answer isn’t found in any esoteric fancy schmancy synchromystic BS
Keith: I just wanted to show you that
me: that’s all just stanley;s red herrings
the 2nd matrix if you will
Keith: Of course
me: it’s enough to know the first matrix kubrick built
the existence of th 2nd kubbrick matrix itself is a clue, but there are no clues IN it
didn’t hamlet’s mill come up elsewhere?
Keith: Think so
was in in strieberville?
Keith: Maybe Phil was talking about can’t remember
it was part of some metanarrative,
is it in Room 237?
Keith: I just watched it don’t think so
“The question about 2012 is really very simple: will the world be destroyed or not? We know that there was a period of horrendous upheaval about 11,000 years ago, and that classic books like Hamlet’s Mill have made the case that a warning of future catastrophe is contained in the symbolic writings of the past.
me: whitley, meet stanley
me: the link you sent is odd, doesnt allow selecting text
must be an image
Keith: Its some kind of flash page
me: it mentions a quote from hamlets Mill but i dont see any quote
me: did i ever tell you about the Kubrick lookalike who was my neighbor in Hampstead in 2002?
me: He would sit at his desk in the window of his house, writing
i saw him all the time and Mike LaBurt saw him too
we jokingly called him Kubrick because he was a dead ringer
now i wonder
me: I guess the syncbook guys know about this site
how did you find it?
Chatted with him on skype
me: the url has word zero in it twice; zer0 books my new pub.
how was the chat? did mark let you get a word in?
Keith: I didn’t expect to after listening to him. I tried my best
me: what is telling about this site and all the other theories about SK – you know what it is?
one word answer
Keith: The assumption that everything he did was by design. There are no mistakes
me: have you actually read all this?!
that’s lots of words
Keith: Fuck no
me: condense into one?
begins with 0
me: (clue no 2: you may not see it coz you have it)
come on slopokes
one scroll of the shining page http://www.zerozerotwo.org/KUBRICK/INSIDEout/MontanaDocument.html and it screams in your face
Keith: im not following you
me: never mind
i am going to post our chat in lieu of today;s post
are you OK with that?
i will let my readers solve the 2nd riddle, and give them a shot at the first too
if you dont beat them to it
Keith: I did actually read most of that page after scrolling through it
you should get an award
Keith: but other than that its fine
me: that only proves my 2nd clue
you have what it is I am drawing your attention to
so you dont see it
(tho i am sure you really)
Keith: ? the last line?
Keith: ? the last line?
me: say what?
Keith: “(tho i am sure you really)”
Keith: seems to be missing a word
me: anyway, riddle 2 is a lesser version of riddle 1
if you like Kubrick you like riddles
so i dont feel bad about feeding your….
but no cigar!
it doesnt matter whether any of the clues these people find mean anything
what matters is that they looked
going to post this now and rewatch Room 237
coz I have fallen into Stanley’s trap
