Crichton was a physician who , before medical school, had studied biological anthropology. His first novel, The Andromeda Strain was written in his final year of medical school.

My guess is you're not familiar with The Andromeda Strain.

Crichton used his scientific background to write compelling science fiction based on abstract scientific concepts wherein he used them to explore the human condition, and the popular culture of his day. Jurassic Park was just an updated version of his earlier amusement park-gone-wrong novel, Westworld, where instead of androids rebelling it was dinosaurs.

Less time looking at movies and more time reading books is a good idea.

No no no! If he reads books he'll soon notice that nearly every single book has a page 20, quickly followed by a page 23. The implications are staggering!

I planted my potatoes and tied my pinto beans this afternoon. It was still a little brisk but getting in the garden, putting my hands in the soil was just what the doctor ordered. He should get out into nature and try growing a few things. Really focuses the mind, makes you forget all this end of the world nonsense about videos and floods and whatnot.

Everything is special if you have enough colored yarn to connect the dots.

Well, exactly. There you are. In that scenario he managed to recruit 1 person, which is a hell of a lot better result than he's managing here.

I just got an invitation on Facebook to join the Illuminati. Pretty exciting.

Just want to check with Gilius that it's legit before I sign up. $50 million and a free house is not to be sniffed at. (Though if they're giving me $50M I imagine I can just buy my own house.)

Perhaps he's been scared off by agents of the Freemasons who didn't like the way he's spotted all those clues they had painstakingly created to be so vague and obscure they thought literally nobody would ever even notice them.

Actually, you're usually pre-selected by the Illuminati. One day you come home and discover a mysterious block of cheese in your refrigerator. Congealed within the cheese is your sooper seekreht membership ring, and skeleton key. The key will unlock every door on earth. Engraved inside your ring is your Swiss Bank Account number where you can access your $50 million. And that's $50 every month.

Sure, we're going to expect you to do nefarious things, but you'll love our dental plan.

Most likely just as many as the rest of us.

A couple of years back the town I lived had an open house day for organizations that you generally could not visit spontaneously. Churches, craft breweries, historic houses and the like. So I visited the local masonic temple. It turned out that someone I knew rather remotely was a member.

I got the grand tour. As I said to my wife when I got home, the whole thing seemed like a silly exercise of purportedly grown men behaving like a bunch of boys. Club house, no girls, secret initiation ceremonies, and etc.

Of course, that may be just a front and they really do run the World and all. But, if they do, they don't run it very well.

I think those are the Grangers.

Seriously (well, not very, but maybe a little), given the Grange's mystical agrarian hoo-hah I'm a little surprised the conspiracy theorists haven't lumped them in with the rest. I mean really. Remember the Children of the Corn? Meet the parents! Time to give the old Grange a little popular boost. Once upon a time they had the best group health plan around!

That is evidence of ignorance of science that makes looking at your video a waste of time, gilius.

There is no evidence that whatever you mean by "extreme weather storms and global flooding" started exactly 22 years ago.

The climate science is that we have had over a century of global warming that is explained by the CO2 that we have emitted. That warming would always cause more extreme weather events.
Is extreme weather caused by global warming?
Quote:
There is growing empirical evidence that warming temperatures cause more intense hurricanes, heavier rainfalls and flooding, increased conditions for wildfires and dangerous heat waves.
The scientific papers cited include one with "widespread drying over Africa, East and South Asia, and other areas from 1950 to 2008", another with a 30 year trend of increasing tropical cyclone wind speeds, etc.

We have
  1. No imaginary "weather machine" run by an imaginary group in charge of technology is needed. Some paranoia/fantasy that you know what this imaginary group scheduled 50+ years ago.
  2. You cannot understand that Jurassic Park and other movies are works of fiction and never really happened!
  3. A fantasy that most films reference 2023 or that this is relevant to the real world.
  4. Idiotic images from films.
  5. A "Oh look, I've found the weather machine..." lie (images from Bond films).
  6. A "2023:" fantasy (images of Boris Johnson in news briefings about COVID-19).
  7. "The oligarchs did not come this far to stop now" paranoia/nonsense with images from films.
  8. More idiotic images from films with "Sea of Japan subtitles, etc. (paranoia about Japan or the Japanese?).
  9. A "Flat Earth filmmakers are obliged to include 2023 in their movies" lie when you have an unsourced image of a restaurant with a table number 23.
  10. Repeated demands to watch your video.
    Your posts here show that video is probably full of more is ignorance, fantasies and maybe lies.
  11. A video obsessing about the number 23.
    23 appears in an infinite number of years: 2123, 2223, 2323, or I only needed to watch about 5 minutes of that video to learn that we are all going to have a problem in 23,000 A.D
    That is an actual thing: 23 enigma: "The 23 enigma is a belief in the significance of the number 23" because 2 + 3 = 5 and 5 is magically significant.

I think his ambiguous-expressed claim is actually that 22 years of freak weather is soon to commence, when the Freemasons switch their diabolical machine on.

I'm betting on some junior evil technician in the Freemasons getting a couple of wires crossed, causing the infernal weather machine to run backwards, and when they switch it on it accidentally fixes climate change.

The result is that the Freemasons are universally lauded as the saviours of mankind and in a Scrooge-like epiphany they abandon their evil ways and instead, with profound irony, are elevated by popular acclaim to be World Leaders in Perpetuity, ushering in a thousand years of peace and harmony.

So everybody gets what they want and we all live happily ever after.

There will be a major Outbreak and major salt, i.e. flooding, come 2023. And The Poseidon Adventure was quite helpful in explaining how to increase our chances of survival.

Okay, I'll play: What weird series of imagined overconnections led you from the character name "Major Salt" to "flooding"?

Lead us through it. Baby steps, please. Remember this stuff only appears to make sense to you, so if you just give us hints and expect us to join the dots, that won't work as our dots don't join the way yours do.

My video provides the basis for the global flood, and so when "Oceania" begins forming in 2023 (see earlier screenshot I posted from the early movie 1984) it will essentially be an extension of the salt-water sea as per Waterworld (1995). And we also know that an inhospitable desert will form in the Middle East (leaving only "salt" and "citadels" to the west).


More from Outbreak (1995) - man with the virus collapses same time the aquarium spills over:

I believe you will find that water generally provides the basis for most floods.

Just checking: you know that "Oceania" in 1984 is not some imagined future continent, right? It's a name for a collection of present day countries. When Orwell wrote 1984, in 1947, he initially called it "1948" but his publisher made him change the title as it would soon be out of date. It's not set in the distant future. It's not even set in 2023. And there won't be any new continents in 2023.

So, if I may paraphrase, you just decided that "Major Salt" means flooding because the sea is salty and you reckon some places that don't flood will become dry salt flats, except they will all be underwater like Waterworld. Dry, underwater desert salt flats. Got it.

You know what else is salty? Nuts.

I think you might be referring to my dimwitted early British law enforcement ancestor. Or not.

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find

Looks like it might have been brought forward a bit.

Possibly only to 2523. I mean, so far the OP's portents of doom only mention the "23" part. Maybe he has to watch all those movies over again and concentrate really hard to spot the clues about which century the Freemasons will strike. Or maybe those clues aren't in the movies. They might be in books the movies are based on. Or in TV shows that spin off the movies. Or hidden in the comments on review sites. He's the only one who can recognise what's a clue and what isn't so it looks like he might be busy for a while. Couple of centuries, I wouldn't be surprised.

In this world of deception, whatever people may say to pull the wool over our eyes, has little or no value; the evidence remains as fact to tell us the truth, i.e. genuine screenshots from movies that can be verified as such.

What exactly do you think genuine screenshots from movies are evidence of, other than that movie makers make movies? And why?

I note that the stills you selected confirm what I said: Oceania was a newly formed police state in that story and not new land which rose out of the sea. You can't pull the wool over our eyes.

We've already covered that throughout the previous pages of this topic:
*Entertainment industry controlled by the oligarchs as is everything else, including banking, technology and even the calendar system, etc.
*The most expensive multi-million dollar productions - with guidance from the elite based on "the pyramid" (or capitalist control system) - are made for propaganda purposes that provide legacy for the elite for a future "new world" that will look back at the "old world" as being idiots and the elite as Gods.
*Propaganda reveals details of future planned crimes against humanity and cultural changes, as per Simpsons/911, etc.
*One such vanity project covered by the corpus of Hollywood movies is the 2023 ebola + global flood - includes many other themes/details as covered by my Surviving 2023 video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGHuFTvXC-k
*Propaganda is not only confined to movies - but also in videogames, comic books, LP covers, advertisements, news articles, cartoons, radio, religions... everything that the elite has control over by proxy.

Again, if the evidence doesn't tell you the truth then you need to keep looking at it till it does.











Even money can contain propaganda: lighthouse + seawall being indicative of citadels on water as per the movie Blade Runner 2049 (2017).
