OK here goes - did some googling with dinah abbey road. (I can hear you groaning)
Came up with an IMDB link for Dinah Lenney, she plays Nurse Shirley in e.r. and was in an episode called Abby Road.
So what? well nothing really except her last film role (Technician #2) was in "The Puppet Masters" Very Happy . Made me smile anyway.

Okay. I've been thinking (always dangerous) and have come up with the following (I am assuming that Perplex City is in another dimension or on another planet in this dimension and is not on our Earth):

I don't think that our existence is public knowledge in their world. I suspect that only members of the Academy know we exist.

Why I think that:
The question came to me of why was the cube brought here? Assuming they live on a planet that is even close to the size of Earth or is Earth itself, why not hide it somewhere there? Sente said in the article that they can track it because of it's unique nature and find it quickly. If that ability is limited to their world, that makes our world the perfect hiding place. (The fact that Sente needs us to find the Cube implies to me that they can't track it here.)

So they steal it and, to keep it from being found, bring it here. Sente does say they can track it. If it was brought here because they can't track it in our world then he is not being wholy honest with the press there. The first reason that comes to my mind (besides not wanting the public to freak out that the Cube can't be found) is that they don't know of us.

The reason I suspect that the government and/or church don't even know about our world, is that Sente, an academic, is heading up the search. His position could just be a factor of him being the most knowledgable about us though and the government and/or church are still running things on that end.

If most of the above is correct, here's where I think it may lead plotwise:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
If the cube is not found fast enough, the church and/or government will step in and send their people over (if possible) and/or start recruiting people here. They may also just pull Sente and one of them would become the person "running" us. Sente then might choose not to cooperate and get us to help him in secret.


I've got a few other thoughts and unanswered questions, but I need a nap.

i think the reason why we have been given the 'pm logs' if you will, even if they are in-game is simply to confuse us.

i believe they are trying to distort the lines between what we know to be a game (that we enjoy terribly but still a game) and what we know to be the people behind it. don't be suprised if they purposely screw with your mind, up to the point where you don't know whats going on. adrians been kidnapped, the cube is real, sente is a chick! lmao who knows Wink but this will be enjoyable either way.

i really need to rent a copy of 'the game' again. if this has any of the same elements, then it will never allow itself to be a game, remember

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
(relating to the movie) they got him to shoot his best friend- and make it look accidental then he jumps off the building thinking he was committing suicide for gods sake, and it was all scripted. yep were in for some confusing mind warping shit. existenz is also a neat example of the game within a game idea.


dinah seemed nice, but there were probably alterior motives for her taking your pictures Razz a memento? or a future puzzle? dumdumdum

I actually purchased a copy of 'The Game' and watched it 3 day's ago =D
..and yes I believe a mind warp is going to be in play.
We do not even know if Sente or Dinah are the 'good' guys.

In response to something TheBruce said in the Dinah Puzzle Thread (sorry don't know how to quote cross thread-- anyone want to PM me and let me know? still new to this), but also adding this to General Spec as it is just that:

TheBruce made the comment about Sente working out of the London Office, and yet he and his people at the Academy can't retrieve the cube in this world/dimension... here's a thought. Perhaps Sente is in contact with the London office, or rather the people in the office, but is unable to physically manifest here. Ex.: the mention of the Webcam, the use of emails, the reference to us.

So, just a thought, what if Sente, Perplexity, the Academy, all of it, are in some sort of virtual dimension-- think Tron, or better yet, Otherland, and a non-malicious Jongeluer-- able to communicate with those outside, even able to print post cards, etc... (no one I can think of would actually change ink color mid-signature-- but writing a message on the back of the image of a postcard would still print as an image instead of as typed-text) and could be jazzed up for effect-- then again still looks like a paycheck rubber stamp signature to me). Also would explain the video with divergent cultures, the ability of those at the academy to keep tabs on all that is happening in our world, and provide a solid connection between our universes without allowing actual physical cross-over.

That would allow the full omnipotent knowledge of all that is the Web, the images on the webcam, the practical discussion of refresh rates, while still remaining in-game.

I'll stop rambling, as probably just babble/useless spec anyway.

That also would allow us to find the cube, and for it not to actually do anything special.

Now THAT would amaze me and draw me in. What an idea.

I've been chewing on a thought fFor a little while now. People are saying the theftt of the cube is the most important thing, drawing the apparently obvious conclusion of the year 1 being when the Cube was fFound, and making a generally big deal of the whole affair.

I'm not saying it isn't a big deal. not at all.

But I am suggesting we employ a little perspective. The academy is, potentially, a thousand years old (some would argue, much less than a thousand). and it wasn't taken very seriously fFor quite some while, we see now, by the rabble rousing and name calling of early academicians.

the academy wants their cube back, most definitely. And others, such as religious fFanatics, have vested interests in its return as well.

But noone is saying it's the *most* important thing. The ads talk about the murder of fFran, which i would think would take more social impact.

What I'm suggesting is the idea that the lost cube -- what we are here about -- is an issue of particular concern to one private organization. The police and other agencies are no doubt looking into it as well, if at least because of the murder involved. Let's not lose perspective on the over-all crime.
