    It wasn't the rain pitter-pattering against the roof of the cabin that woke them up. It was the sound of a bird squawking loudly from outside.
    "Bloody shut up! I'm trying to sleep here!" Leonard was unimpressed with the irritating incessant sound. He didn't dislike animals, but he also didn't like being woken from his slumber prematurely.
    "Wha-s-goin-on?!" Winsor mumbled.
    "Can't you hear? There's a bird outside. Hasn't stopped screeching for at least twenty minutes."
    "Might not be a bird. Might be a Russian guard making animal noises."
    "Ha, very funny. Or Matt and Andrew playing a practical joke on us."
    "Can't we all just get our heads down and try to have another hour of sleep? We have a long day ahead of us."
    "Didn't get much sleep Leonard?" Carter enquired.
    "I spent half the night with one eye open. You never know what's going to happen. It's not safe around this part. That bloody bird is not helping matters, it could bring somebody over here to investigate."
    "Doesn't that give us more incentive to just collect our shit and get the hell out of here."
    "You're right Carter. What am I even thinking? Sleeping for another hour? Pfft! Complacency is what will get us all killed. I said we'd head for the Dome at first light, and that is what we will do."
    Leonard smirked eerily, like he was in his own little world. A blackout of the mind.
    "You are the creepiest old man I've ever met Leonard. Don't keep smiling like that."
    "Thank you for the compliment Winsor. Blame it on the trauma, dementia, whatever you want to call it. I prefer to call it paranoia, and paranoia can be an intelligent trait to have. It keeps you alive."
    "Yes, but is being alive a good thing when we live in a world like this one?"
    "This Earth could be beautiful Carter. And we're going to make it beautiful again."
    "Typical isn't it? We wake up and that blasted bird stops making a racket."
    "Life is full of coincidences. Most of the time they are nothing, but sometimes they are a sign."
    "A sign of what, Leonard?"
    "A sign that is telling us to wake ourselves up and stop being lazy and complacent. Besides, there is a spot I want to take you to on the bank of the Istra River. It's perfect, and once there, we will make an attempt to contact Matthew and Andrew via the walkies that we have in the bag."
    "The Istra River? Is that near this Cupola Dome place you keep telling us about?"
    "Yes, it's very close."
    "All we have to do is pass through this forest behind the cabin a short distance. Of course it would be easier to travel on the road, but we cannot risk being spotted. Once we get through the forest, we will come to a small river, and there we will set up camp. You will be able to see the Dome from that spot."
    "Where exactly are we?"
    "Currently, we are residing southeast of the country's capital Moscow, in a little town called Istra. Part of the Istrinsky District in Moscow Oblast."
    "So the plan is to go to that Dome first?"
    "No, I thought that we would take a little detour west first and visit the New Jerusalem Monastery, you'll be thankful we did. Besides, I left something there."
    "New Jerusalem Monastery? You've been there before? What did you leave?"
    "A memory."
    "What happened?"
    "It is a place that the German army destroyed in 1941, when they blew up the belfry and demolished the towers. It was eventually reopened in 1959. When you see it, you'll wonder why anyone would want to destroy such a magnificent thing. Like most soldiers of any country, the Nazis were without conscience. Had no minds of their own, they all followed that fucking painter and decorator like sheep. Ordinary people can be made to do anything if you terrorise or manipulate them enough."
    "But you fought in the war Leonard!"
    "Yes. And not one day passes by where I don't regret signing up. If you could put a wise man's brain into a young man's body, nobody would sign up for the military. Ordinary people trust authority. They feel as though there is never a choice. But there is always a choice. And they should exercise their right to remain stubborn more often. If they are forced to choose, they should choose to die on home soil. Death is a refuge, and it is better to die on one's own terms than to have his free will determined by strangers."
    "But what if the other country invades, what do you do then?"
    "You begin a cycle that starts from birth, that teaches against war. You close down barracks, destroy nukes. But most of all, you create a world that doesn't give people a desire to be unhappy, to fight."
    "That's not realistic Leonard. War is forever. How can you make the hearts and minds of billions perfect? Even if the world is perfect, statistically one person will still want to kill someone, it's innate."
    "Who is to say that the Governments of the world don't have that plan already? An agenda to create world peace, but in order to get there, they are doing it a different way. Using oppression and bloodshed."
    "C'mon let's stop talking nonsense, and get the hell out of here."
    Leonard led the way, inching the wooden door ajar and peaking out into the distance, making sure that the coast was clear. There was nothing, the High Voltage Pulse Generator was now dormant. He looked up at the sky, it was strangely blue, not a single cloud in sight. Knowing that it was safe to leave the cabin he gestured with his index finger to Winsor and Carter without uttering a single word, indicating that they should follow him.
    They started heading north, venturing into the trees to begin making their way through the forest.
    "We have got to be very careful around here. Keep your eyes on the ground at all times and take slow, steady footsteps. If the ground looks different in any way, you stop still. Got that? The last thing we need is an accident at this stage."
    "What are we supposed to be keeping an eye out for Leonard?"
    "Holes. In the floor. They look like deep wells. But if they do exist, they might have been covered up or just haven't been exposed yet. Sinkholes are very unpredictable, That is why I needed Matthew here."
    "What does Matt know about sinkholes?"
    "Well I'll say this much. I didn't know a hell of a lot about the Cloaca Maxima's cave system. Not until I met Matthew Goodman. He's a Speleologist you know. Some of Pinto's notes were... Tricky."
    "A Spelioloi--what?!"
    "A caver, Winsor. He likes spelunking."
    "Yet here we were thinking Matt was just an ordinary neighbour with a boring life!"
    "You shouldn't poke fun at Matthew. He's a world class urban explorer. Ever heard of the Catacombs in Paris?"
    "Yep. Heard of it. Don't know a lot about it."
    "He used to explore that place on his own, a lot. I said to him, did it ever scare you, walking around something so deep and claustrophobic, so dark and unnerving. So lonely and helpless? 'Doesn't frighten me one bit,' he'd say, it made him feel detached from the world, at peace. He seemed to possess a natural sense of direction, he never felt like he was ever going to get lost. Like he had eyes in the dark. That's an extraordinary capability to have. He is a unique individual. He has explored bomb shelters, caves, sewers, you name it, he has explored it. The only problem is that he is not here with us right now in this ruddy forest!"
    "And it was so kind of you to lead us through this death forest wasn't it Leonard!"
    "This is the only safe way I know that will take us to where we need to be."
    "What do you think made these holes in the ground?"
    "Maybe the question should be not what, but who made the holes."
    "That's right, blame everything on the aliens. Aliens are flying down onto our planet, making holes in the middle of a Russian forest that, coincidentally, just happens to lie next to a ruddy big Research Center, and then fly away again as if nothing has happened."
    "So I take it you don't believe in aliens?"
    "It's not that I don't accept that there isn't other life out there. But the idea that this other life is making secret visits to our planet, creating holes, abducting people and killing livestock makes a great cover story for the military. It takes the attention away from their weapon development and aircraft testing. They want more people to believe in aliens because if the people are thinking about aliens, they are not suspicious of the military's activities. Which may or may not be nefarious."
    "And what are the military doing?"
    "Competing. With other countries. To avoid being militarily left in the dark. Always looking to build the next super weapon or find that advancement in technology which gives them the edge. Russia, America, China, Britain, France. All afraid of each other's capabilities. The minute you are inferior militarily and economically to your enemy, you start becoming vulnerable. Vulnerable to being a bit part player. Vulnerable to colonisation and totalitarianism. This High Voltage Generator out in the middle of nowhere for example is an example of a country that always wants to be one step ahead, to have the intelligence and weaponry that other countries do not. To be at the forefront, defend the country, or just for economic influence."
    "Area 51? What about that place?"
    "Everything that you could ever imagine. Every kind of test. Invisibility, cloning, eugenics. Area 51 is not just exclusive to America. Most countries have their secret places where they try to outdo one another. But sometimes, in their innocence, people discover horrible things when dabbling in science. Fission bombs for example. It was the Curies who discovered that pitchblende contained polonium and radium and isolated it. All these tiny childlike experiments lead to big things. Things that people will fight and kill for."
    "What are we fighting and killing for, Leonard?"
    "We are not fighting, or killing anyone boy. We are here to continue what Pinto started."
    "Pinto sounds like a bit of a maniac in my opinion."
    "Not true! He was a victim of other people's corruption and disunity."
    "Hey! Have you guys not noticed how warm it feels? There isn't a single cloud in the sky, yet it was absolutely pouring with rain last night. The ground doesn't even feel wet this morning. Not find it odd?"
    "I was thinking exactly the same thing boy. Cloud seeding?"
    "Nothing seems to make sense anymore. We have just walked away from a huge generator situated in the middle of nowhere without even blinking. Why aren't we fucking shocked! Literally!"
    "When the Great Patriotic War ended, the town of Istra became a research center for electrical power engineering. The Federal State Unitary Enterprise conduct application studies in the field of high and ultra-high voltages, electrophysics problems, physics of plasma gas discharge, impulse electrophysics, solid-state physics, circuitry engineering, superconductivity and science and technical problems."
    "That explains a lot Len!" Carter said sarcastically.
    "It is believed that these experiments are based on the work of Nikola Tesla. A man so far in front of the word genius, he makes the word genius look pedestrian."
    "How long before we get to this river?"
    "Twenty minutes or so. We have to keep taking this forest nice and slow. We're doing okay so far. But let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet."
    "The Istra River is a tributary of the Moskva River. Think of it like a branch coming out of a tree trunk."
    "I did study Geography at school. You don't need to patronise me."

Yeah but you can see her running and screaming, some people even said that maybe she was being chased, but i disagree, both scopolamine and mushrooms give some really unpleasant hallucinations, so for her to suffer a panic attack the drugging should suffice, however since scopolamine makes yo tame you can't really have an outburst.

That's a really good eye you had there, i actually didn't noticed that!

Yeah that hotel has history with these kind of grim stories and events, which is why i say that maybe one of the higher ups in my case the manager is the perpetrator, as of why i am not sure, but i like to think that maybe morbid tradition, it seems the place was already famous for having their guests dying or better said killed.

Maybe she was given the hat in a promotional maneuver when she was searching were to stay once she decided to travel there, but i really can't make any conjectures with just that photo, or without any other examples of paraphernalia with the branding of the hotel, specially since it seems that the hotel is called both Cecil Hotel and Hotel Cecil, so it could be, that she was already targeted one year prior to that.

I have no idea of how that show operates really.

The interesting thing here is that it afflicted mostly just the homeless population, but the other guest who drank from the water which had her cadaver on it, didn't reported anything unusual with their health.

Transaction 4, a portable stove with gas which costs around $40 exchanged for a generator that at best could be get for $200 , that guy... incredible.
But the next 2 one are even more BS, he trades the generator for an "instant party" and an IOU, he then changed that for an snowmobile! a goddamn neon sign and a beer keg for a snowmobile...
Then he exchanges that for trip, and one of the seats he trades it for a whole truck, at this point the levels of nonsense are astonishing. From this point on celebrities start to involve themselves and you know at that point reason has lost its place.

Interesting but she was too upbeat and active for it to be scopolamine which actually has the opposite effect, it pacifies you and makes you to follow orders, yes but you lose energy, in higher dosses it can put you to sleep, and from there on dead comes due to system failure, so while it would be a great drug to command her into the water tank, it would go against her odd energetic behavior that was shown int the video.

Is indeed weird, that is why my number one suspect is the hotel manager because he has access to all these things that he can manipulate, as for why they haven't broadcast the show, i have no idea about that one. All in all i agree nothing supernatural at all happened, she was clearly drugged then killed.

Well that is were you are ahead of me, we never really came closer to discovering a reason of why they killed her exactly, but your coincidence is indeed intriguing, specially because coincidentally this video about coincidences was releases not so long ago:

Pepper spray!

Well he had a really bad life, totally depraved of all recognition and died alone surrounded by pigeons, that is the curse of gaining the antagonist of the son of a thousand prostitutes piece of shit pig capitalist scum of scums oportunistic bastard known as Thomas Edison.

I trust you on the drug theory. You are probably right. She was definitely under the influence and light-headed. You can tell that just by the way she walked into the elevator for the first time, kind of bending down very smoothly. I have done the same thing myself when I've been out drinking and have gone to the toilet. Your brain kind of numbs up from the effects, so you tend to bend and sway.

The first part of the hand movements look real. Like what really happened, and then the second part of her hand movements look like the video being doctored, as though frames have been reversed and forwarded. Kind of like her name ELISA-LAM-LAM-ELISA.

You are probably right. The hotel manager, or some staff at that Hotel would definitely have some knowledge of what happened. It could even have been possible to wait until she got into the elevator on the 4th floor, and manipulated it somehow to travel to the 14th floor. Then locked it up. That hotel is one creepy place. lots of history too.

I revisited the George Stroumboulopoulos photo again. Looking at Wiki it states the following:

Taping locations

The program typically tapes at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in Toronto, Monday to Friday in front of a live studio audience, then is broadcast at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

The show has gone on location to Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, and St. John's, and has twice broadcast from London.[citation needed]

Toronto is very far away from Lam's home of Vancouver. So it was likely that when the show was filmed in Vancouver, she was on that one. According to a search, it says that the Vancouver episodes were filmed around March 15th 2012. Yet she went missing on January 31st and was found on February 19th 2013.

The time of her death was one year after the George Stroumboulopoulos episodes. Yet in that photo, she is clearly sat on the stage (the red chairs) wearing a hat that says Hot. We can't say for sure if it reads Hotel Cecil, but the font is very similar and if you look closely, the letter O is wide like the Hotel Cecil.

Now if that hat does indeed say Hotel Cecil on the front. Why is she wearing it one year prior to visiting the place? It's an odd co-incidence to live in Vancouver, and have a hat that features a hotel that she probably has never visited in her life. Did she buy the hat? Or was she given it, and if so by whom? Does the George Stroumboulopoulos tonight only feature celebrities? Or does it also allow members of the public on the show?

That appearance and the whole tuberculosis thing seem very significant. In the drama Utopia, certain people (sleeper agents) are brainwashed and told when to release a flu virus into the public domain. It just has that feel to me.

In other random news. I found this interesting thing, have you heard of it?

I don't really believe in all those backwards messages. They are the kind of things that people can convince themselves they are hearing. But with the ELISA-LAM and LAM-ELISA coincidence, it was in plain black and white. And a quite large outbreak of tuberculosis affected the Skid Row area after her body was found. Too odd.

Thomas Edison. What a cunt.

Oh that case i spend some weeks on the comment discussion that was going on in youtube, and the educated consensus seems to be drug poisoning by mushrooms, which are synthesized by the body and become untraceable after some hours, as for how she got there, clearly she was killed, the hotel manager probably was the one that feed her the mushrooms and also opened the locks then pushed her into the tank, her unusual behavior corresponds with the use of those kind of mushrooms, however the girl suffered from bipolar disorder, which made her a perfect target to kill and blame her odd actions more on the state of her psyche than on drugging.

Weapons YAY!

Well the other guys are a bunch of researches working on a lab under a certain university that so just happen to be on Japan, long gone are the times where revolutionary inventions could be claimed by only one researcher. Yeah sticking with Tesla is a wise idea.

3 days ago (Updated 3 days ago) nietzlawe responds:

As soon as I heard about the case, which was only about a week ago. I must have analysed it constantly for about 3 days.

Your theory is similar to mine. But the drug of choice could have been scopolamine. Interesting too that the word 'lam' just happens to be part of that word. But this drug is fucked up man, you can actually blow it in somebody's face to induce a zombie-like state. If that is the case it would be easy then for a couple of spooks or somebody working in the hotel to instruct her to the roof, where the tank is already open, then she simply climbs in and drowns.

The real mysteries are what reason would you have for being on the 14th floor when your hotel room is on the 4th floor?

Why does the video look doctored in parts? Someone on Youtube posted a time stamp with an alleged 54 seconds missing.

Why has nothing more been said about this appearance on the George Stroumboulopoulos show, in which the hat she is wearing has the letters 'Hot' written on it? As in Hotel Cecil. What did she discuss on the show? Why is there no broadcast of it? Very weird that she has a Hotel Cecil hat.

Very odd and creepy case, but I don't believe anything supernatural happened. My opinion on the motive of murder. She probably knew about something Tuberculosis related from her time at the British Colombia university. Or she could even have been a sleeper agent designed to plant the sickness in the Skid Row area. Very weird that the Tuberculosis test is called LAM-ELISA. That is the mother of all coincidences. Amongst about 50 other bizarre possibilities.

Weapons are the spice of life. Even spice, which you could probably throw into somebody's eyes.

I'm currently reading Tesla My Inventions. It's only a short autobiography. Surely it's got to be longer than 34 pages.

Talking about invisibility and cloaking this promises so much, but i wonder if it deflects signals how will the thing inside be able to get info on its surroundings? maybe it will be used only for buildings and other non mobile structures....

No, that actually explains a lot, like for example the enormous tower sized Pulse Generator, i was thinking that they would be using it to test a behemothian machine, but it is actually field research on high levels of electricity... which then may very well be used on a behemothian machine...

Mmmh that's a hard one, i have to decide between the genius that was Tesla, and that world record breaking Japanese magnet fusion conductor.

3 days ago nietzlawe responds:

That invisibility and cloaking is quite eerie. Especially when you read about the Elisa Lam case...

Used on a benemothian machine. Or a behemothian country. Humans seem to turn every invention into a weapon.

I'll stay with Tesla. But only because I don't know the other guy.
