Or maybe all those cities are on fire and the smoke is visible from orbit...


Actually, that's sounding more and more likely. The VIS at the end of 15 GOES 12 VIS stands for visible light, as opposed to water vapor and infreared light that GOES also measures. Now to just figure out what the 15 means.

It's very possible this was just a creative writing exercise that got upscaled to ARG and the blog wasn't meant to be IG.
It'd be hard to fudge the dates and number of friends he has, retroactively.
It's not uncommon to see this. Like the Incunabula story being reused in the Chasing/Catching The Wish ARGs.



I'm not really sure what to think of this guy, but we should keep an eye out for him. He might be an author, which would be extremely disappointing, although likely.


There is also the possibility that we found this blog WAY to early and are ahead of the ARG right now....but i don't think so.

Well here's a nifty artist rendering of what the GOES looks like if anyone's interested.

Also, there's another satellite much like the GOES but with better resolution called the NOAA-15

So I just read his blog. The only thing that relates is red cloud Nebraska. But maybe this is a coincidence....

I searched for any reference between Mayans and Native Americans and a Faceless man but couldn't find anything.

I hate to perpetuate the speculation on the blog but, this is in the description of "Iya". (A character I mentioned earlier, from Lakota Mythology.)

Quote:
The tornado, the snowstorm, the hurricane or the thunderstorm would all be considered manifestations of this deity. He travels with his storms in a fabulous tipi painted with magical symbols, and when he appears, he is often faceless and formless.


No connection to Mayans yet, though!

I can't be absolutely certain, but I believe I've seen that symbol somewhere before.

That is a symbol spawned from Christianity. It means Alpha and Omega. Referencing Jesus' famous quote:

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End."

His blog states that he was ordered on a journey by Enoch, so it makes sense that his myspace would have that...

Yeah, i know about Enoch. Although his book was banned from the bible due to blasphemy and compete lies. Some people still believe him, I personally, do not...

Man, I'm learning all kinda of random stuff from researching this one.
There's a rundown on the symbol here:

Damn... we may have drifted into another ARG.

This guy certainly seems like an ARG character, but probably not this one.

I believe that he is a Christian writer who decided he'd release his work on a website a lot of people go to. It makes sense...

Whoa, can someone please tell me which site this came from - you guys have made so much progress today I am still catching up, but there was a game called Enoch of Gatewood that ended quite a while ago & I want to be sure that you haven't accidently run into the character's MySpace or something
