Illuminati tablet by IDeviant Illuminati tablet by IDeviant
Ancient piece of stonework discovered somewhere close to the Caspian Sea, demonstrating the venerable duration of the Illuminati lineage. The curious markings are thought to originate from the application of some kind of key. Such a device has not yet been found, although rumours concerning its whereabouts abound in underground Occult circles, as do conjectures relating to what will happen, should the thing be found and applied. Permission to forcibly excavate the tablet is expressly denied. A band of prospectors once attempted to remove the tablet under cover of darkness. The condition of their remains, discovered the next morning, has never been divulged publicly in any detail, but the incident has served to maintain a natural security around this fascinating artifact.

I should know better than to full view your work before I'm fully awake. This totally sucked me in and I've been staring at the middle of it for about 5 minutes now, unable to look away.

Love the description as much as the picture :)

If I'm the key to anything, it's probably not something that intellectual.

Great concept! Love the background history to this ancient stonework. To find out more, maybe you should employ the services of "Morris Klaw". With the help of his odically sterilized pillow, I'm sure he could fill you in on some of the dark secrets of this artifact. :D

"odically sterilized pillow"! Now that's a concept :D Sweet dreams...

Ah vaedemna, thine aim is true - it casts a long shadow. Setting the bar this high leaves me breathless at the Portal, but it beckons me ever on.

:bow: A new word for me! I'm reminded of Eco's 'Foucault's Pendulum' when the Occultist net closes around one of the protagonists - as bait, they had devised a new group that they called the TRES (Templi Resurgentes Equites Synarchici): the Occultists, when questioned as to their identity, say something like "We're the TRES - we want you to tell us who we are") :D

Are you re-connected, or on borrowed time? I miss our exchanges...

Light emanates here [link]

Yes, who are we? I'm interested!

Oh yes, she's back. Modem blown up by lightning, the usual problem. Living in mountains is pc-hostile as weird random lightning occurs without warning, sometimes out of clear blue sky! Fulgurites common around here. The ever growing stack of modem boxes is useful for storing ancient artifacts, :D like DVD's.

Missed you too. :wave:
Haven't saddled up Kamertaj yet, but once I'm up & flying we'll chat again. Now to excavate my arcane tablets.

I should like to think that we're 'Transitionals' (my coinage), beings linking the stolid terrestrial hominids with the emerging consciousness structure (one constantly seeks fresh ways to 'justify' one's weirdness :D).

Lightning is certainly an electronics killer - I've lost a modem and a tuner to it, and we don't get such exotics as fulgurites (e-mail me one, and I shall fashion a tune-pipe and pipe a tune :giggle: - late afternoon craziness bleeding out :crazy:).

Whence the name Kamertaj? Big G gives only your own references...

Kamertaj is Pegasus (Greek) & Lung-ta (Tibetan), the windhorse of the imagination and the spirit. Up up & away....magic carpet...hiho Silver...etc.
I came across it in a book of Turkish faery tales way back then. Haven't been able to find it on Google either.

We certainly are transitionals, but wot th' it's all about sends me spinning, :spin: ,as does pursuing yr tablet methodology...:surrender:

Keats' "viewless wings of Poesy" perhaps? Your link has provided much fruitful material and a pleasing jolt of synchronicity - the Caspian sea was a spontaneous change I made... :D

A nice one, Ian.
I believe that is your name.
I downloaded your gradient maker some time ago but didn't know how to use it.

Did you know that Apo makes gradients from any picture?
You must do.
I found it out from `cmptrwhz tutorial.

I'm having fun with my own photos.

Indeed I am Ian :nod: GradientMaker was superseded by PaletteMaster - it allows conversion from Apo to FE and ChaosPro formats, but I never did create the reverse, which would enable one to create a gradient with the much more flexible UI of FE/ChaosPro and then make it accessible to Apo. I think perhaps I need to attempt that, although there are plans afoot to create a decent gradient editor for Apo. And yes, I've created a few gradients from pictures (a small pack offered here, although I have others in smaller groups that I haven't offered here, basically for that reason).

Yes, I have your Coastal Grandeur Gradients which I have used.
Excuse me for not giving credit in my comments.
I never know what I have used when I have finished. Stock photos are about all I can remember.

Thank you for explaining about your Gradient Maker et al. I didn't realise that it was for several programmes.

How do you spell realis/ze ? The corrector tells me automatically I'm wrong but it is American and I never know what to believe.

Spelling isn't easy with three languages in mind and a bad memory.:D

I don't require any credit, but I'm happy to know they're of some use :nod: 'Realise' is the British English spelling. I assume you have Word (since you have Excel!) - make sure the spell check is on and set to English (U.K.), then you can always check in there :D

I have a Mac. Can I do it on that? I haven't had it long. I will try to see what to do.

Thanks!

Ah, I assumed, from mention of my spreadsheet, that you must be running Excel and therefore have Word. I believe it's possible to run some kind of PC emulation on a Mac, but I have no experience myself.

I should say that I have only had Mac since February. Everything I did before was on a PC laptop.

Yes, I have a programme my son set up called Virtual Machines Ware. It enables to run Windows. I use PSP like that and FE. FE works perfectly.
There is also something to run Apo but it doesn't work well. It tells you there isn't enough memory (limit to 64!) ... and does everything in slices. So I do Apo on the laptop and transfer through a thing I can't say in English, those little things you plug in, a PSB key I think.
My son says he will set me up a network??? with the two computers, but he lives in Paris and I am in the east of France.

Actually I have all my previous texts in Word and can use it on the Mac.
Really I don't understand much:D

I am gradually learning IT. I know a little bit now. I didn't want to turn into an old fogey!


A Frenchman has developed Apophysis.j which runs directly on Mac through Java. I downloaded it but it is very limited and I think he is constantly trying to build it up. Maybe in a while it will be satisfying. I asked for advice from the maker who kindly answered me but it was too technical.

There is a specific fractal maker for Mac called Oxydizer. There again, it is at it's beginnings, and I can't handle it. Young technically minded folk can. I once tried to render something and it was due to run for six days... after four it gave up the ghost.
I was contacted through dA by the maker of this programme because he had found mention of it in my titles.
He encouraged me and explained a lot, but I couldn't follow.

If you are at all interested, there is a collection called Oxydizer in my gallery... if you have nothing better to do. You'll see the limitations, even taking into account my limitations.:D
I think young folk manage to use it well.

OK. That's enough.

Suzanne. :)

Actually, I'm quite impressed with Apo-J - looks a bit Windows 98 but the rapidity with which he implements real updates is amazing, and there are a couple of nice features original to it.

IT (Immortality Training) definitely helps prevent ageing ;)
