      here’s a little something for richard benedict.

      archduke franz ferninand was the royal prince of hungary and bohemia. he was the heir presumptive to the austro-hungarian throne; but he was assasinated by these dastardly narrative devices we’re told…

      en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_…

      …but before he pretended to be assasinated we’re also told that:

      “Following the relocation of the imperial collections, both of the Belvedere Palaces ceased to be public museums for a while at least. In 1896 Emperor Franz Joseph I decided that the Upper Belvedere should serve as a residence for the heir to the throne, his nephew Franz Ferdinand. The heir presumptive had the palace remodeled under the supervision of the architect Emil von Förster, who was also imperial undersecretary, and it served from that point onwards as Franz Ferdinand’s residence. By contrast, the Moderne Galerie was opened a few years later, on 2 May 1903, in the Lower Belvedere. This museum was the first state collection in Austria that was exclusively dedicated to modern art and came about upon the instigation of the Union of Austrian Artists, known as the Vienna Secession. The aim was to juxtapose Austrian art with international modernism. From the outset, major works by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Giovanni Segantini were bought for the Moderne Galerie. The museum was then renamed the k.u.k. Staatsgalerie (“Imperial and Royal Gallery”) in 1911 after it was decided to expand the focus beyond modern art to include works from earlier eras. The assassination of heir-apparent Franz Ferdinand and his wife, the outbreak of World War I, and the ensuing collapse of the Habsburg Monarchy in 1918 marked the start of a new era for the Belvedere.”
      en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belved…

      …and it just so happens of course that the architect that franz joseph I chose to remodel the belvedere, emil von foerster, was the grandfather of heinz von foerster. and as richard will know, heinz was wittgenstein’s nephew and “was an Austrian American scientist combining physics and philosophy. Together with Warren McCulloch, Norbert Wiener, John von Neumann, Lawrence J. Fogel, and others, Heinz von Foerster was an architect of cybernetics.”
      en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinz_…
      en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig…

      and heinz also happened to be the senile old fuck that once let slip the hustle of course…

        Foerster [re: the origins of the universe] “…there are so many different hypothesis because the question cannot be answered. . So all that is relevant is how interesting is the story that someone invents to explain the origins of the universe. ”

        Interlocutor: “Of course we are very close to art there…If it is a matter of inventing a good story or poetic story…”

        Foerster: “Exactly, exactly, that is what it is. There is a struggle between two, three, or even ten different poets. Who can invent a funny, amusing or interesting story so that everyone immediately thinks: ‘That is what must have happened!'”

        smj, this Foerster cat sounds pretty lucid to me. I am going to email the You Tube link to Simon Shack. It ought to take him down a peg.

          “Take me down a peg”? Sheesh, what is with you guys (smj and rb) and your mocking jabs at yours truly and my very humble cosmic musings? I haven’t even started publishing my working theory, for chrissakes! Lol – I must be the very first cosmic theorist to be ‘pre-emptively condemned’ for … uh, well – thought crimes, I guess.
          Have we come to a point where even trying to make sense of empirical celestial observations is viewed upon as ‘arrogance’? The little I have anticipated – in a few lines on my forum – is that my model appears to resolve – fwiw – what I feel are the most glaring problems with the current, near-universally-accepted Copernican model – that’s all, no more and no less. My studies have been – foremostly – of geometric nature (fear not – no fancy ‘particles’ or quantum psyence involved) and at no point have I claimed / suggested that my working model is the end-all of all cosmic theories – everyone will be able to assess it for themselves – free of charge – and above all, free of any ‘group-think’ or ‘academic’ pressures. And no, I surely have not announced that it will “explain the origins of the universe” – or anything remotely that silly & insanely pretentious. So please give me some slack, guys – thanks!

          Season’s greetings to all 🙂

            i have no idea who richard benedict is; it wouldn’t matter to me if i did. i happened to recall this post from earlier this year:

            “Ab, would you please consider interviewing smj to discuss these issues. I have listened to him on your original interview Ep. 119 and I have listened to smj on Hoax Busters Call with Chris Kendall. smj is a sui genris in this field of fakeology and IMHO is imperative we record what he knows for posterity.
            Smj, I am a high school teacher and I have used videos you suggested in my classes eg. Heinz von Foerster video on “Autopoetics” where he lets slip the truth on “the hustle.”, Explorer One fake launch, NASA first administrator, RFK sister on the podium. If you have any other materiel you think I could show my students I would be grateful. If any other fakeologists have any material please let me know. For the students that understand you should see the light come over them when they learn these things. A suggested topic Ab could discuss with you could be DNA. When you discuss the hustle at the university regarding nuclear science, I had the same experience at both the undergraduate and graduate level regarding the The Great Hoax of Beginning Reading Instruction in America. Just substitute the word “beginning reading instruction” for “nuclear science” and the dynamics are the same. I will be posting more detail on this hoax in the forum. It involves G. Stanly Hall, Skull and Bones, Yale, University, Johns Hopkins etc.
            smj once asked “Are we underestimating how deep the hustle goes?” Yes ,IMO, we are. Ab please interview smj again and myself and other fakeologists may chime in and explore the depths of the hustle.”

            …so i assumed of course that he would be familiar with wittgenstein’s nephew.

            “And no, I surely have not announced that it will “explain the origins of the universe” – or anything remotely that silly & insanely pretentious.”

            nor have i.

            …fuck christmas of course.

            I like the peg you’re on Simon and in a world as crazy as this, you make a lot of sense to me. I am sure I speak for many.

            Happy Holidays!!!

            Rock on with those thought crimes. We need a few~

            let’s not get it twisted y’all. simon told us he was going to solve the solar system years ago; while i didn’t say he was coming off as an arrogant prick until earlier this month because of his tone with ab. go read the fucking thread:

            “i’d like to express my appreciation to simon shack, the man who will one day solve the solar system, for not calling ab a cointelpro agent. i’m tired of that bullshit.
            it’s pretty sweet how you proved the curvature of water by proving that ab couldn’t see some fucking trees in the immediate foreground of his target from 30 miles away. your g factor is obviously off the charts, bro; but you know that already of course.
            go ahead believe your favorite astronomer, historian, or whatever; apparently the narrative device we’ve been told to call tycho was the real deal; simon told us so. is he as real as the actor we were trained to call czar nicholas, simon?
            tell you what- you can stop posting at fakeologist; i’ll try to contribute more here seeing as i won’t be posting on cluesforum anymore. i can’t promise anything though, seeing as i live in my truck and post from here…
            boomerzaustin.com
            …not exactly one of the seven hills, right? you’re coming off as an arrogant prick and i don’t deal with those.”
            fakeologist.com/2015/12/01/fla…

            …so simon can play the ‘pre-emptively condemned’ cosmic theorist or the brave defier of ‘thought crimes’ role all he wants; it has nothing to do with me. my problem with simon was his ‘arrogant’ condemnation of ab’s investigation of the flat earth thing.

            by the way i’m a fan of tycho myself; what with the drunken ungulates, the pet midget and whatnot. they just don’t write narrative devices like they used to…

            Class is always in session with SMJ 🙂 After looking up the word “ungulate” in relation to Tycho Brahe I found that:
            “His body has been exhumed twice, in 1901 and 2010, to examine the circumstances of his death and to verify what material his artificial nose was made of. The conclusion was that his death was likely caused by a burst bladder as first suggested and that the artificial nose was more likely made of brass than silver or gold as believed in his time.”
            500 years on and they are still trying to settle once and for all what kind of fake nose the wealthiest man in Denmark was gluing on to his face. Priceless.

        somebody should have warned poor franz ferninand and his missus not to be gallivantin’ around in hostile serbian territory in an open carriage auto. especially if that auto was named after a petulant mythical figure that was such a shitty driver that zeus had to strike him dead with a thunderbolt.

        “In Plato’s Timaeus, Critias tells the story of Atlantis as recounted to Solon by an Egyptian priest, who prefaced the story by saying:

        There have been, and will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by the agencies of fire and water, and other lesser ones by innumerable other causes. There is a story that even you [Greeks] have preserved, that once upon a time, Phaethon, the son of Helios, having yoked the steeds in his father’s chariot, because he was not able to drive them in the path of his father, burnt up all that was upon the earth, and was himself destroyed by a thunderbolt. Now this has the form of a myth, but really signifies a declination of the bodies moving in the heavens around the earth, and a great conflagration of things upon the earth, which recurs after long intervals.”
        en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phaeth…

        franz’ supposed death would lead to the two great conflagrations of the 20th century we’re told. here’s the phaeton that ole franz got smoked in; notice the tags, A III 118…

        bestride.com/blog/wp-content/u…

        …we’re told 13 people died in that car; but miraculously the old phaeton looks to be in pretty good shape:

        “Nineteen-year-old Gavrilo Princip — a member of Young Bosnia and one of a group of assassins organized and armed by the Black Hand — was sitting at a cafe across the street. He recognized his opportunity, walked across the street and shot the royal couple, badly injuring Sophie and killing Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
        Ferdinand’s assassination was the breaking point in tension between European nations, and it eventually precipitated World War I, a multinational confrontation that eventually claimed a staggering 16 million lives, one of the deadliest wars in human history.

        What follows is a legend; that the 1910 Gräf & Stift Double Phaeton was so irreparably tainted by the events, that owner after owner that followed met a violent fate. Trouble is, it’s difficult to prove any of this a century later, when record-keeping wasn’t as rigorous as it is today:

        In the next 12 years, the Double Phaeton car saw 15 different owners. During that period, the car was involved in accidents that claimed the lives of 13 people.
        One owner, an Austrian general, became insane and died in an asylum. Another — after owning the car for just nine days — collided with two peasants and a tree after a valiant attempt to avoid the crash. Another owner committed suicide.

        And that’s just the beginning. With this one car, the governor of Yugoslavia suffered four separate accidents, one of which cost him an arm. He sold the car to a friend who bought the “cursed” car on a dare. The friend flipped the car over and was crushed in the accident. A Swiss racing driver met exactly the same fate. The last owner of the car was Tiber Hirshfeld, a Romanian garage owner who drove the car to a wedding with five friends. The vehicle suddenly spun out of control and crashed, killing all but one on board.”

        …armistice day is 11/11/18 of course.

        whoever’s writing the screenplay we’ve been told to call history ought to hire a dramaturge or two because these fucking fairy-tales are un-fuckin-believable. that is if you’re paying attention of course. the script-writers could at least ease-up on the symmetry at bit. not that we in ‘merica don’t have own geometry of the mind-fuck…

    i’m sure our maths and science experts recognize oleg the fashion designer’s last name. by the way, oleg worked for paramount; just like t. keith glennan. here’s a hint if they don’t…

    www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cas…

    oleg “was born in Paris as Oleg Aleksandrovich Loiewski, the elder son of Countess Marguerite Cassini and her husband Alexander Loiewski. His father was a Russian diplomat. His maternal grandfather Arthur Paul Nicholas Cassini, Marquis de Capuzzuchi di Bologna, Count Cassini, had been the Russian ambassador to the United States during the administrations of William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. His mother’s family claimed Italian astronomer Giovanni Domenico Cassini as an ancestor. In 1918, the Russian Revolution caused the Loiewski family to flee for their lives, leaving behind their wealth, lands, and homes. As a young child, Oleg saw his cousin shot to death. The Loiewski family reached Denmark, due to his father’s status, and next moved to Switzerland. The Greek Royal family invited them to Greece, but, while traveling through Italy, the Loiewskis learned there was revolution there. They got off the train and settled in Florence. Oleg’s younger brother, Igor Cassini, became a society columnist, better known by his pen name of Cholly Knickerbocker. In Italy the children started using the surname of Cassini.”

    they are all actors; and they don’t have to hide it, because gullible apes are afraid to acknowledge the hustle of course.

    remember henry cavendish and his suspended balls?

    well, we’re told he was the grandson of william cavendish the 2nd duke of devonshire…

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willia…
    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_…

    …so henry was the great-nephew of the 3rd duke of devonshire, another william of course…

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willia…

    here’s the dukes flashing the westside as hustlers are want to do…

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willia…

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willia…

    …and here’s henry’s famous hidden hand profile…

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_…

    …these sons of bitches ain’t the least bit subtle, but they don’t have to be of course.

    well anyways, the 3rd duke of devonshire was the most recent common ancestor of charles and diana we’re told:

    “William Cavendish is also notable as the most recent common ancestor of Prince Charles and his first wife, Lady Diana Spencer. Charles and Diana were seventh cousins once removed as Charles descends from William’s son, the 4th Duke, and Diana was descended from William’s daughter, Lady Elizabeth.”
    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willia…

    …lady di’s role of her lifetime was inspired by her aunty georgiana’s role of her lifetime, who was married to the 5th duke of devonshire, another billy of course:

    “For Diana and Georgiana, both Spencers born at the family home at Althorp, shared striking similarities. Both were shy teenagers who blossomed after being catapulted to fame by marrying older, wealthier men. Both became fashion icons, with the Duchess sitting for artists such as Gainsborough and Reynolds, just as her great great great great niece would for Mario Testino, two centuries later.
    And, like Diana, Georgiana found consolation in the outpouring of public affection when it became obvious that her marriage to William Cavendish, 5th Duke of Devonshire, would never deliver her longed-for dream of happy-ever-after.”
    www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknew…

    now the 7th duke of devonshire, another billy of course, was the chancellor of that maths hustlers’ paradise in cambridge. he provided a 6,300 pound homage for his cousin, henry, that started the cavendish laboratory:

    “The Cavendish Laboratory has an extraordinary history of discovery and innovation in Physics since its opening in 1874 under the direction of James Clerk Maxwell, the University’s first Cavendish Professor of Experimental Physics. Up till that time, physics meant theoretical physics and was regarded as the province of the mathematicians. The outstanding experimental contributions of Isaac Newton, Thomas Young and George Gabriel Stokes were all carried out in their colleges. The need for the practical training of scientists and engineers was emphasised by the success of the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the requirements of an industrial society. The foundation of the Natural Sciences Tripos in 1851 set the scene for the need to build dedicated experimental physics laboratories and this was achieved through the generosity of the Chancellor of the University, William Cavendish, the Seventh Duke of Devonshire. He provided £6,300 to meet the costs of building a physics laboratory, on condition that the Colleges provided the funding for a Professorship of Experimental Physics. This led to the appointment of Maxwell as the first Cavendish professor.”

    …and jack kennedy’s sister, kit, was a cavendish with a ridiculous narrative…

    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathle…

    …so let’s not forget that her daddy was a fucking movie mogul of course:

    “This is the extraordinary story, told for the first time, of Joseph P. Kennedy’s remarkable reign in Hollywood, in which he ran three movie studios simultaneously, led the revolution in sound pictures–and made the fortune that became the foundation of his empire. Kennedy saw filmmaking as “a gold mine” when movies were an idea one week, in front of the camera the next, and in theaters within the month. It was 1919; Kennedy was thirty-one years old. Between 1926 and 1930, Kennedy used his talents to position himself as a Hollywood leader. He ran Film Booking Offices (FBO), was brought in to run Pathé and the Keith-Albee-Orpheum theaters, and became the chairman of their boards. Within months, he was asked to head First National film company. By 1928, Kennedy–merciless, electrifying, a visionary–was running three studios at once. InJoseph P. Kennedy Presents,Cari Beauchamp writes about the genius behind Kennedy’s profiteering and his importance in changing the way Hollywood conducted business. As one of the first nonfamily members to be given access to Kennedy’s personal papers, Beauchamp, through years of meticulous research and countless interviews with those close to Kennedy, has dug through the maze of deals and the files of memos and notes, only recently made available, to tell in full how he made it all happen: how he charmed, cajoled, and bullied; how he juggles various backers–and managed to line his pockets with millions. Beauchamp writes about the movies Kennedy produced and the stars he made, about the studios he razed and those he reorganized, about the jobs that were lost and the careers that were ruined (among them, that of silent film cowboy star Fred Thomson–one of America’s top box-office draws). Beauchamp tells for the first time the full story of Kennedy’s affair with the feisty Gloria Swanson, the “reigning Queen of Hollywood”–an extravagant escapade that became legend and that triggered one of Hollywood’s biggest financial fiascos. It began with Kennedy taking over Swanson’s personal and professional life (“Together we could make millions,” he promised), and ended with his first failure (personal and public) and her career on the brink of ruin, a million dollars in debt. Beauchamp writes as well about the Hollywood titans surrounding Kennedy: William Randolph Hearst (Kennedy was a welcome guest at “the ranch”) . . . Cecil B. De Mille . . . David Sarnoff, who, with Kennedy, masterminded the unprecedented deal that resulted in the founding of RKO, and that made Kennedy millions. A fascinating tale of business genius and personal greed that brings to light not only the way Joseph P. Kennedy made his fortune, but how he forever changed the business of movie-making.”
    www.buffalolib.org/vufind/Reco…

    …or that jack hung-out in hollywood of course:

    “Just before the end of World War II, actor and producer Norman Lloyd found himself playing an unexpectedly memorable tennis match. His friend, actor Joseph Cotten (Citizen Kane), had invited Lloyd to his Pacific Palisades home to hit the court and have lunch along with some other guests.
    “I was invited out there on a Sunday,” recalls Lloyd, now 99, a seven-decade veteran of the industry who’s appeared in films including Alfred Hitchcock’s Saboteur (1942) and Dead Poets Society (1989). Fashion designer Oleg Cassini had arrived, and he brought a guest. “It was this guy I didn’t know, just wearing shorts, no shoes, no stockings and no shirt. And he was going to play as one of the four [for a doubles match], and his hair flying all over the place.”
    “Joe introduced me. He said, ‘I want you to meet this fella, Jack Kennedy. He just got out of the Navy.’ ”
    www.hollywoodreporter.com/news…

    …citizen kane was was released by joe kennedy’s rko; so when bobby pretended to be assasinated in la-la land his death was announced to the gullible apes by one frank mankiewicz, the son of citizen kane screen writer, herman mankiewicz…

    m.youtube.com/watch?v=ujPidSx7…

    …wiki the mankiewicz cabal, they’re neck deep in the hustle.

    now i’m not saying that all actors are gay, but jack kennedy went on a romp thru europe with his gay best friend, lem. they even adopted a friggin’ puppy. they even hung-out on the beach with little kit, the future cavendish of course. the advocate has the whole story of course…

    …who knows? perhaps that’s why the lunar module was named lem; the narrative does love it’s symmetry.

      i forgot to mention, as i’m wont to do of course, that lady di’s prequel, georgiana cavendish, was on the spencer side a great great granddaughter of john churchill, the 1st duke of marlborough…

      en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_C…

      …who was the father of anne spencer, who was a princess of the holy roman empire, her father had been made a prince by joseph I. joe sat on the imperial throne of bohemia of course:

      “Lady Anne Churchill (27 February 1683 – 15 April 1716) was the third daughter of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough and Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough. As her father was created a sovereign prince by the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph I, Anne was also a princess of the Holy Roman Empire and later of Mindelheim.
      Amongst her descendants are Sir Winston Churchill (from her son Charles), and Diana, Princess of Wales (from her son John).”
      en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_A…

      …sir winston won the hustlers’ academy award and did other sundry bullshit of course…
