@Searching in TXThat's very interesting, thank you for posting that. How close to the truth is the video you attached, do you know?I had some thoughts about the sentence: "The ghost in the machine points to the false prophet"1. A machine means that it is synthetic and also implies a creator.2. The ghost in the machine suggests an unseen force that also exists in the machine. Can it express its will over the machine?3. The false prophet also implies the existence of a true prophet
Machine (machina) ghost (deus) (anti christ-point) ex marks the spot.Thread was in the x board

Thank you!@Ar Go ap Dyn , it was a thread on 4chan. Here is a post from Reddit describing it:This is a true story. I'm new here, usually a 4channer. Just came to share this story because I thought you would like it.Some time last year a group of anons on the 4chan paranormal board '/x/' randomly decided to start a journal recording their experiences of 'synchronicity'. (Synchronicity is a phenomenon coined by Carl Jung and is defined as the meaningful occurence of unrelated events with no causal relation) They had no idea what they would find, not being religious or spiritual in any sense, this however seemed to be the only phenomenon which they could say they had a genuine curiosity in, and wanted to try and get the bottom of what it could possible mean, if anything. The journal was called "Voices of /x/" (VOX) and encouraged people to record any events which they thought were out of the usual or even would make them seem crazy. Here are some early threads - I don't have many of them archived unfortunately: http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/6220/xvox1.jpg http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/1368/xvoxlh.jpg What happened is that the more that anons recorded these seemingly random events in their life, the more they started to notice dark patterns within the events, and join the dots more and more. Instead of reaching some great summit of enlightenment as they were hoping, they found instead that the imbued meaning seemed to point to some altogether dark or demonic force at work. For instance repeated incidents involve the words 'hell' or 'rape'. Racking their brains to cope with the stress of the potential implications of these findings, the journal itself started to become more of a group therapy session than anything else, and severely took its toll on the members who participated. Some felt that they were turning schizophrenic or that they had perhaps become possessed by demons or dark alien forces of some variety. The original creator of the journal got so worn down by it all that they had to take their leave of 4chan and spent some time in a psyche ward. One by one the people who took up the reigns of the journal also found that the stress became too much for them and they felt as thought they were pursuing a dark and troublesome route they could no longer continue to walk, the journal slowly became yet another urban legend and was discontinued permanently. At various attempts to revive the journal non participants noticed other eerie things about the journals themselves, in fact many of the threads seemed to contain individual focus points (That is in a particular thread there was a running theme of synchronicities all shared by the contributors - for instance repeated instances of the word 'snake') Some anons have claimed that each of these individual events can be translated to a letter of the alphabet, and that across all the separate threads a message is spelt out. Not everyone agrees with this however, and many argue that this is more evidence that synchronicity and all kind of magical thinking such as this display only the ability humans have to see patterns where there are none. Nevertheless those that claim the message exists agree what it spelt was something like: 'The ghost in the machine points to the false prophet' - http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/4018/jamievox1.jpg There are also many interpretations as to what the message itself could mean, some say that somebody deliberately hijacked the journal with these particular entries for the sake of viral marketing for some online magazine called 'the false prophet'.. which ties into an alternative reality game that was played last year that involved this countdown website: http://www.falseprophet-hq.com/ (A website which is constantly counting down to certain dates and has a series of passwords. Kind of a maze in itself. First passwords are 'highkey' and 'lowkey' for your own interests, may not be relevant to this story) Others claim that the message pertains to the coming of the anti-christ or merely from the devil himself. Some tie it to the conspiracy theory relating to an illuminati agent who revealed himself at the end of the Mayan calendar: Most sceptical people believe that the journal indicates nothing, and sadly ended their last lingering thread of belief in anything at all. Was the journal hijacked by supernatural forces? Was this really a case of the cursed journal of 4chan? Or was it just the over active imaginations of anons? Is synchronicity a genuine spiritual phenomenon? And if so does it imply some evil overarching whisperer in the darkness?Perhaps these things are never to be known by humans, but if you ever want to know, maybe you could start keeping a journal yourself, get your friends involved and post it up on the internet, but remember you have been warned.There might just be a ghost in the machine.https://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/1otu3w/the_4chan_journal_that_sent_people_insane/

The false prophet also implies the existence of a true prophetghost (n.) Old English gast "breath; good or bad spirit, angel, demon; person, man, human being,"machine (n.) 1540s, "structure of any kind," from Middle French machine "device, contrivance," from Latin machina "machine, engine, military machine; device, trick; instrument"
So,The human being in the trick (illusion) points to (looks to) someone who doesn't speak for god (false prophet).If god is truth, then looking out or to others is not the way. Do we then look within or not look at all even...Look without looking; just see. Boy oh boy!! I can't believe what I'm saying here Great place!
I had a dream most odd last night, Im curious to see what this group makes of it.I was thinking i was high school aged, but had the memories of and spoke about adult experinces I had. I was on a field trip to nyc for school, and was surrounded by people I "knew from the real world" that didnt look like they really do. I was greeted by an old "frenemy" who DID look as he really does named Kerry Donnely. we discussed how our lives had went since last we saw eachother.than im in an office building, im at the desk of an insurance broker who tried hiring me twice in my life, quite some time ago. He tells me he suspects I am on steroids, and lists his reasons why. I am equal parts shocked and amused by the accusation. I offer to urinate in a cup, to which he replies, "would you though, would you really?"Than a person I presume was his assitant he me brought a coffee and says "See Nick I always have you covered"Than a machine is brought out, similar in size to those disney character,quarter eating "rides" outside of supermarkets and toy r us" Except this is a video game, a very advanced looking one. I watch someone get in, than I get an image of a large, fallen angel, made of or covered in blood, and I remember not feeling fear, but feeling sympathy for the person in the machine.
