Brain Simulation

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/16/2010

The brain is a parallel processor. The colorful blue jay I see flitting from tree to tree in my garden appears as a single image. But the brain divides what it sees into four components: color, motion, shape, and depth. These are individually processed - at the same time – and compared to my stored memories. My brain then combines all of these processes into one image that I see and comprehend.
Today's most powerful supercomputers are all massively parallel processing systems with names like Earth Simulator, Blue Gene, ASCI White, ASCI Red, ASCI Purple, and ASCI Thor's Hammer. Through Moore's Law – which states that the number of transistors on a chip double every eighteen months – single chips that function as parallel processor arrays are becoming cost effective.

Blue Brain Project

The human cortex has about 22 billion neurons and 220 trillion synapses. A supercomputer capable of running a software simulation of the human brain doesn’t yet exist. Researchers estimate that it would require at least a machine with a computational capacity of 36.8 petaflops (a petaflop is a thousand trillion floating point operations per second) and a memory capacity of 3.2 petabytes – a scale that supercomputer technology isn't expected to hit for at least three years.
Markram’s Blue Brain project is the first comprehensive attempt to reverse-engineer the mammalian brain. The brain processes information by sending electrical signals from neuron-to-neuron using the “wiring” of dendrites and axons.Using a Blue Gene supercomputer running Michael Hines's NEURON software, the simulation does not consist simply of an artificial neural network, but involves a biologically realistic model of neurons

When Killing Is Easy

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

The BBC has released a remarkable film about the killing of three international peace activists by the Israeli army in the occupied Gaza Strip. Documentary evidence provided in the film strongly suggests that the American Rachel Corrie - and two British activists - were murdered.
In two of the cases the Israeli army is being blamed for murder; the third is considered "attempted murder."

Tom Hurndall
British photographer Tom Hurndall, 22, was left brain dead after being shot in the head by an Israeli soldier on April 11. Jocelyn Hurndall wrote to The Guardian after an Israeli government check for about $12,000, sent to the Hurndall family to pay for "a fraction of the expenses incurred," bounced. When the check finally arrived after five months of negotiations with the Hurndall family, the Israeli government check was not "honored" by the Bank of Israel, Hurndall wrote. "Insufficient funds' was the reason given.  

Rachel Corrie
Rachel Corrie, the first of the three to die, was using her body to defend the home of Dr. Samir Nasser Allah from an American-made bulldozer used by the Israeli army to demolish the homes of Palestinians. Corrie was a member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). ISM members stand between the Israeli bulldozers and the homes that the IDF wants to flatten. The IDF produced a report that says, "Corrie was not run over by an engineering vehicle." It added, "for good measure" Sweeney says, that Corrie was "hidden from view of the vehicle's operator." The footage seen in the BBC film proves these statements to be false. Tom Dale, an ISM eyewitness, had a clear view of the incident: "He [the driver] knew absolutely she was there. The bulldozer waited for a few seconds over her body and it then reversed, leaving its scoop down so that if she had been under the bulldozer, it would have crushed her a second time. Only later when it was much more clear of her body did it raise its scoop."The family of Rachel Corrie believes the IDF report to "be a blatant fabrication," Sweeney wrote.

James Miller

The British cameraman James Miller was shot dead by an Israeli sniper as he left a house in Rafah with two other journalists on the night of May 2. An Associated Press TV News (APTN) cameraman filmed the entire scene. One of the three journalists held a white flag; Miller was shining a light on the flag and a third journalist held up her British passport. There was no shooting and the area was quiet as the audio track of the film clearly proves. The three had walked about 60 feet toward an Israeli armed personnel carrier to request safe passage to leave the area when the first shot was fired. "We are British journalists," Saira Shah cried out into the darkness. "Then comes the second shot, which killed James," Sweeney wrote. "He was shot in the front of his neck. The bullet was Israeli issue, fired, according to a forensic expert, from less than 200 meters [600 feet] away." The IDF maintains that Miller was shot during crossfire, although no shooting is heard on the APTN tape apart from the two shots fired from the Israeli military vehicle. When the APTN tape was shown to an Israeli soldier, who is shown in the film, he said the television team did not look like Islamic terrorists and concluded: "That's murder."

Hollywood and Arab and Islam

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

They use to stereo type Muslims and Arabs as Billionaires, bombers, and belly dancers.If your going to say that there isn't a single Muslim terrorist then your being ignorant, as there is trouble out there, but one of the ideas behind this whole film is to comfort you that not all Muslim people are like that, and the Middle East isn't that bad a place and we need to start building bridges not tearing them down.

  • Body Of Lies: Ferris and the terrorist leader They argue (Ferris more heatedly) about Islam. Ferris accuses him of misinterpreting the Koran for his own benefit.
  • Syriana:Scapegoated by the CIA, Barnes is killed while attempting to warn the would-be reformist Prince Nasir , that he is being targeted by the CIA (because he would have sold oil rights to the Chinese and not the Americans.) The Prince and his family are all killed in the same US missile strike.The Prince's morally bankrupt brother Meshal succeeds to be king backed by Whiting, an oil company magnate and makes a deal to let them into the country.
  • Green Zone: Reminding people that there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the only reason for the Invasion was the oil.

Braid's Ending

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

Braid is such an amazing game and its ending is a masterpiece The basic story elements unfold as the protagonist, Tim, attempts to rescue a princess from a monster. Text passages laid throughout the game reveal a multifaceted narrative, giving clues about Tim's contemplations and motivations. The game features traditional aspects of the platform genre while integrating various powers of time-manipulation. Using these abilities, the player progresses the story by finding and assembling jigsaw puzzle pieces.

If you don't collect eight stars

The Ending You See

The ending shows Tim in a small underground tunnel while above him, a knight descends with the Princess in his arms. "I got you!" the knight shouts and when he reaches the bottom, the Princess leaps to the ledge above. "Get down here!" he yells as she shouts "help!" The Princess then runs away to the left while you run after her chasing by a wall of flames. The Princess hits switches to let you through the obstacles, while you hit switches to open doors to let her through. Eventually, she reaches her room and when you climb up the fence to the outside of the window, there's a bang and the Princess is asleep. There's no way for you to get inside to reach her

The Actual Ending

When you rewind time, you see the level for what it really is - you're the one chasing the Princess, who is trying to get away from you. She's actually hitting switches to set off traps trying to kill you and block off the ladders out of the underground tunnel, while you're hitting switches trying to trap her.At the end of the level, she shouts out "help!" to the knight, who shouts "get down here!" She jumps down into his arms and he then carries her away on a rope while telling her "I've got you." In Tim's mind, the knight is the monster at the start of the level. In reality, Tim is the monster the Princess is running away from.

If you Collect 8 Stars

when you run after the princess you catch her before time rewinds , the moment you touch her she explodes and turns into 8 stars.

Either its a fractured love story where the princess left because he was drunk or that the princess personfies the atomic bomb which may be the correct answer because Some of the Epilogue text reads as follows:

He worked his ruler and his compass. He inferred. He deduced. He scrutinized the fall of an apple, the twisting of metal orbs hanging from a thread. He was searching for the Princess, and he would not stop until he found her, for he was hungry.Someone near him said: "It worked."
Someone else said: "Now we are all sons of bitches."
She stood tall and majestic. She radiated fury. She shouted: "Who has disturbed me?" But then, anger expelled, she felt the sadness beneath; she let her breath fall softly, like a sigh, like ashes floating gently on the wind.
She couldn't understand why he chose to flirt so closely with the death of the world.

"Now we are all sons of bitches" is a famous quote, said by Kenneth Bainbridge after the detonation of the first nuclear bomb. 

True Happiness

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

After watching (Into The Wild) the protagonist wondered what was true happiness he went on a journey to "find himself". At first he concluded that:

You don't need human relationships to be happy, God has placed it all around us. 
then he stated in the end :

Happiness only real when shared either with friends and family or by helping others who are in need by connecting with others.

I want to go somewhere where i could marvel at something.The core of mans' spirit comes from new experiences. experiences that should shared with people we love and that's true happiness.

Science Of Evil

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

The Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was conducted from Aug. 14-20, 1971 by a team of researchers led by Psychology professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. Twenty-four students were selected out of 75 to play the prisoners and live in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Roles were assigned randomly. The participants adapted to their roles well beyond what even Zimbardo himself expected, leading the "Officers" to display authoritarian measures and ultimately to subject some of the prisoners to torture. In turn, many of the prisoners developed passive attitudes and accepted physical abuse, and, at the request of the guards, readily inflicted punishment on other prisoners who attempted to stop it. The experiment even affected Zimbardo himself, who, in his capacity as "Prison Superintendent," lost sight of his role as psychologist and permitted the abuse to continue as though it were a real prison. Five of the prisoners were upset enough by the process to quit the experiment early, and the entire experiment was abruptly stopped after only six days. The experimental process and the results remain controversial. The entire experiment was filmed, with excerpts soon made publicly available, Over 30 years later, Zimbardo found renewed interest in the experiment when the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse scandal occurred.

I'd like to discuss few of its results

  1. everyone has a breaking point (prisoners will riot and try to escape attempt) until their spirit breaks completely and accept what happens to them or commit suicide.
  2. people who has power and authority(Guards) will always violate them,Several guards became increasingly cruel as the experiment continued. Experimenters said that approximately one-third of the guards exhibited genuine sadistic tendencies. Most of theguards were upset when the experiment concluded early.
  3. Zimbardo argued that the prisoner participants had internalized their roles, based on the fact that some had stated that they would accept parole even with the attached condition of forfeiting all of their experiment-participation pay. Yet, when their parole applications were all denied, none of the prisoner participants quit the experiment.Zimbardo argued they had no reason for continued participation in the experiment after having lost all monetary compensation, yet they did, because they had internalized the prisoner identity, they thought themselves prisoners, hence, they stayed.

The experiment's result has been argued to demonstrate the impressionability and obedience of people when provided with a legitimizing ideology and social and institutional support. It is also used to illustrate cognitive dissonance theory and the power of authority,until their breaking point if they have one because most people wouldn't and would accept the authority and accept being victims. the study demonstrates the powerful effect roles can have on peoples’ behavior. 
Never Underestimate the power of situations to change human behaviour, normal people are capable of doing the most cruel things

Writing History

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

Over time, and sentence uttered long and loud enough becomes fixed. Becomes a truth. Provided, of course, you can outlast the dissent and silence your opponents. But should you succeed - and remove all challengers - then what remains is, by default, now true.

Nothing is absolutely true, because There are too many variables. Too many fields and formulas to consider. We can try, of course. We can inch closer and closer to a revelation. But we'll never reach it. Not ever . . .

It's about concepts. Clever of them. For how does one wage war against a concept?

It is the perfect weapon. It lacks a physical form yet can alter the world around us in numerous, often violent ways. You cannot kill a creed. Even if you kill all of its adherents, destroy all of its writings these are a reprieve at best. Some one, some day, will rediscover it. Reinvent it.

He specifies that you cannot spread wisdom by merely sharing knowledge, but that active learning must take place.

spin is a form of propaganda, achieved through providing an interpretation of an event or campaign to persuade public opinion in favor or against a certain organization or public figure. While traditional public relations may also rely on creative presentation of the facts, "spin" often, though not always, implies disingenuous, deceptive and/or highly manipulative tactics.A group of people who develop spin may be referred to as "spin doctors" who engage in "spin doctoring" for the person or group that hired them.
Media is a powerful tool like in the movie Mad city media manipulating people by turning a kind man in bad circumstances into a cold blooded killer.

people are controlled by love , fear or hope
That's how they made the American people accept invading Iraq on false causes, and accept Islam as the new threat and many more.

American policies was always about their goals like
  • Texas congressman Charlie Wilson's covert dealings in Afghanistan, where his efforts to assist rebels in their war with the Soviets not believing in the Islamic cause but to hit the Russians under the belt so they made Bin Laden and directed him at the Russians but when he was directed at the Americans they called him a terrorist.
  • Invading Iraq on false causes to get a large supply of oil and gain contracts to Americana companies in rebuilding Iraq which they destroyed in the first places.
But when they sell it to the Ameicains
  • Communists hate our freedom that's why we are at war with the Soviets.
  • Islamic Fundamentalists hate freedom that's why we are at war with them.
  • Iraq has Weapons of mass destruction and when they couldn't find them after the invasion thet announced they came to get rid of the dictatorship of Sadam and to bring democracy and freedom.
Any one interested in this topic say the movie (Wag The Dog) starring Dustin Hoffman, Robert De Niro and Anne Heche about a Washington spin doctor (De Niro) who distracts the electorate from a presidential sex scandal by hiring a Hollywood producer (Hoffman) to create a fake war and the people actually believed that.

Multinational Cooperations

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

Corporations control governments using lobbying (also Lobby) which is a form of advocacy with the intention of influencing decisions made by legislators and officials in the government by individuals, other legislators, constituents, or advocacy groups. A lobbyist is a person who tries to influence legislation on behalf of a special interest or a member of a lobby. Mainly large amounts of money to governments officials which is called in our countries (Bribes) but in USA ,Governments often define and regulate organized group lobbying that has become influential.

A few of the new ideas for Multinational Cooperation that I heard lately

  • Should companies be able to own human genes? Morley Safer examines the practice of biotech firms patenting genes for profit.Where could that lead to? Engineered humans!!
  • Ventura looks into the prospects of "Blue Gold" and why corporations and the super-rich are buying up water rights around the world in what could be a plan in controlling nations and their masses. He looks into evidence that these tactics are going on in North America in what could be a literal theft of the Great Lakes like in Quantum of Solace.

Overview Of Economic Systems

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

Just finished watching Michael Moore's Capitalism A Love Story, and it made me wonder which economic system is the most suitable to the world..
So here is an Overview Of the main Economic Systems and a comparison between them:

  1. In Capitalism people have private property and the resources or the means of production lies with a private owner and exchange goods and services in the free market. There is NO government control or ownership over means of production, everything is privatized. Capitalism produces the highest standard of living out of all the economic systems but for a small percentage of the people and middle class gradually vanishes going either up or down thus increasing the gap between the rich and the poor resulting in the ultimate failure of the system.
  2. In Communism the state controls and owns everything. There is no private property. Communism is often brought about through the use of force (a revolution so that the party controlling the state is the one in power). The goal of Communism is to make everyone equal, however attempts of Communism have only made everyone poor. Communism produces the lowest standard of living out of all economic systems.although the system seems theoretically perfect , it neglects that power corrupts so if the government misuse it powers, no one will stop it and also theory neglects human nature of competition and ownership so it failed.
  3. In Socialism the government controls monitors and owns most of the means of production. They regulate prices, wages, and exchanges. There is however some privatization. Socialism produces a lower standard of living than Capitalism. The majority of the population is lower middle class that has been enslaved by the state and also it must be forced through revolution but it gave a first attempt to a middle solution but with Communism Tendencies, it needed more reforms.
  4. Social Democracy it fixed most problems of Socialism:
    1.   Combining private enterprise with measures of government regulation in an attempt to establish fair competition, low inflation, low levels of unemployment, a standard of working conditions and minimum wages to protect the interests of workers, consumers and small enterprise.
    2.    Social welfare:the state's responsibility and commitment to health, education, employment and social security.
    3.   Private ownership of the means of production with minimal public ownership of some industry but forcing strong regulations to protect 
    4.   State mainly funded through progressive taxation, government regulates private business and provides welfare
    5.   State mainly funded through progressive taxation (), government regulates private business and provides welfare
  5. Mixed economy is most commonly associated with social democratic forms of government
    •   The elements of a mixed economy include a variety of freedoms to the private sector to:
      • to possess means of production (farms, factories, stores, etc.)
      • to participate in managerial decisions (cooperative and participatory economics)
      • to organize (private enterprise for profit, labor unions, workers' and professional associations, non-profit groups, religions, etc.)   
    •   With tax-funded, subsidized, or state-owned factors of production, infrastructure, and services but doesn't prohibit the private sector of having his own private factors of production, infrastructure, and services
      • libraries and other information services
      • roads and other transportation services
      • schools and other education services
      • hospitals and other health services
      • banks and other financial services
      • telephone, mail and other communication services
      • electricity and other energy services (e.g. oil, gas)
      • water systems for drinking, agriculture, and waste disposal
      • subsidies to agriculture and other businesses
      • Government-funded or state-run research and development agencies
    •   Ensuring Social Security and regulate the private sector by various laws and  regulations to ensure
      • welfare for the poor
      • social security for the aged and infirm
      • environmental regulation (example: toxins in land, water, air)
      • labor regulation including minimum wage laws
      • consumer regulation (example: product safety)
      • antitrust laws
      • intellectual property laws
      • incorporation laws
      • protectionism
      • import and export controls, such as tariffs and quotas

Real Umbrella Cooperations

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/15/2010

MONSANTO is most certainly the evil company Umbrella is based on.It is a U.S.-based multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation. It is the world's leading producer of the herbicide glyphosate, marketed as "Roundup". Monsanto is also the leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed; it provides the technology in 90% of the world's GE seeds They are a large biochem/pharmaceutical firm that brought you such famous hazardous chemicals as Dioxin, PCB's, AGENT ORANGE and rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone). Then in the mid-eighties they turned into Monsanto Foods, where they became a large biochemical firm that could mess with the world's food supply with the US government full cooperation and funding.

Monsanto gave $186,250 to federal candidates in the 2008 election cycle through its political action committee (PAC) - 42% to Democrats, 58% to Republicans. For the 2010 election cycle they have given $72,000 - 51% to Democrats, 49% to Republicans.The company spent $8,831,120 for lobbying in 2008. $1,492,000 was to outside lobbying firms with the remainder being spent using in-house lobbyists.

  1. Michael R. Taylor was an assistant to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner before he left to work for a law firm on gaining FDA approval of Monsanto’s artificial growth hormone (Lobbying) in the 1980s. Taylor then became deputy commissioner of the FDA from 1991 to 1994.Taylor was later re-appointed to the FDA in August 2009 by President Barack Obama.
  2. Dr. Michael A. Friedman was a deputy commissioner of the FDA before he was hired as a senior vice president of Monsanto.
  3. Linda J. Fisher was an assistant administrator at the United States Environmental Protection Agency‎ (EPA) before she was a vice president at Monsanto from 1995 - 2000. In 2001, Fisher became the deputy administrator of the EPA.
  4. Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was chairman and chief executive officer of G. D. Searle & Co., which Monsanto purchased in 1985. Rumsfeld personally made at least $12 million USD from the transaction.

MGS4 Story FAQ

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/14/2010

I saw a few questions on the forum regarding MGS 4 story so I reposted a Revised Version of this FAQ
Hope it Helps.

War Economy?

The Rise of PMCs and all aspects of armed Conflicts from weapons industry to slaries paid to mercenaries became an integral dynamo the drives global financial markets.

Sons of the patriots?

a secured system of real time battlefield control all soldiers and PMC mercenaries using nanomachines injected into them.

What happened to the Soldiers in the Middle east?

Liquid Ocelot deactivated the nanomachines controllong they were subjected to the full force of psychological effects repressed by the SOP system.

Why is Snake aging?

Les enfants terribles the project cloning Big Boss which made snake enginnered him to be
fast aging and sterille to prevent his DNA from falling into the wrong Hands.

how long will snake live?

No One Knows For Sure Because Naomi wasn't talking about his life span when she mentioned 6 months she was talking about fox die .She then goes on to tell him that he will be giving mutated Foxdie to everyone in 3 months.
Snake : How long do I have?
Naomi : ...Half a year.
Naomi : You and I both know your body is approaching its limit. When I said another half a year, I wasn't talking about your lifespan.
Naomi : We can't get rid of the FOXDIE in your body completely. At this point, it's circulating within you like a normal virus.The receptors on the FOXDIE inside your body are breaking down.

The rapid aging process is changing the environment within your body. As a result, the virus is starting to mutate.

what was ocelot's true intentions?

Ocelot's true intentions were to manipulate Solid Snake into taking down the AI network and restarting the nation. He also planned to awaken Big Boss, since BB knows where Zero is hiding.Ocelot knew what snake would do with the right motivation(Liquid) so he had snake do his work like in mgs 1 and eva and liquid were deciving snake and the patriots ,snake said that liquid you could have stopped us but liquid said that he didn't want to stop them (same goals).He Knew snake - as a patriots' agent- he would be above suspicsion.

If ocelot was manipulating snake why did he try to kill him?

It was liquid who was trying to kill snake not ocelot.liquid always tried to overcome his brother I think if liquid succeded in killing snake he would continued his original plan to nuke jd and for ocelot it wouldn't make any changes to his plan because either way the patriots would be destroyed and BB would return .remeber mgs 1 .

why wouldn't ocelot just help snake if they shared the same goals?

If Ocelot had just helped Snake directly, the Patriots could have come up with numerous ways to stop him fairly easily..
ocelot motivating snake was confirmed by ocelot when snake told him you could have stopped us but ocelot replied no why would i stop you??

why did ocelot fight snake?

the fight started between liquid and snake (the competing snakes) then led to ocelot fighting snake because of his admiration of BB and snake who mush resembled him that's why before he dies he says to snake: "you are pretty good".

Posted Image

Ocelot's Role in MGS2?

I think he was a patriots' agent whose job was to infiltrate solidus's organization for the patriot's sake (As he did with liquid in mgs1) he also planted the first seeds for convincing the patriots that he was taken over by liquid.he acted as if he was the patriots' loyal agent but he always wanted to destroy them and free BB.

Can you sum ocelot role up?

Solidus was angry with the Patriots and he persuaded Ocelot to persuade Liquid to make the shadow Moses incident.
Ocelot killed the Darpa chief and called it an accident. Unknown to everyone, Ocelot and Eva were still Big Boss devotees. He was always a sleeper agent in the Patriots. Killing Anderson was another Patriot he didn't have to deal with. Anderson also recognized who he was and he had to off him before his was cover blown to Liquid and the others.
Solidus thought he was clever enough to rebel, but no matter what he chose to do, the AI had already considered the scenario and prepared a plan. Solidus wanted Ocelot to obtain battle data from Rex so he could use it to rebel and set up his own Outer Heaven. It didn't turn out that way.Ocelot and Eva wanted to liberate Big Boss from Zero's control. Ocelot is a slave of the Patriots, so he's spent decades doing their dirty work. Solid Snake is their wildcard and the Patriots let him act freely(just as the Drebin). Ocelot's true intentions were to manipulate Solid Snake into taking down the AI network and restarting the nation. He also planned to awaken Big Boss, since BB knows where Zero is hiding. By playing the role of Liquid Snake, Ocelot managed to force the Patriot AI to focus on Liquid's plans instead, which were actually a diversion. Liquid had no intentions of nuking JD or ever taking control of SOP. His only plan was to convince Snake he was doing this, also fooling the Patriots. This pursauded Snake into taking out the AI, which stopped the Patriots. No one counted on Sunny and Naomi rewriting the AI instead of fully destroying it. So in a sense, Big Boss and Zero BOTH lost. Society itself won and earned its renewed freedom. "the world is better off without Snakes" and "We should do our best to leave the world alone"
Big Boss,Ocelot ,Eva and Naomi found their salvation in death and in freeing the world from the Patriots.

why did he change himself to liquid?

By playing the role of Liquid Snake, Ocelot managed to force the Patriot AI to focus on Liquid's plans instead, which were actually a diversion. Liquid had no intentions of nuking JD or ever taking control of SOP. His only plan was to convince Snake he was doing this, also fooling the Patriots.ocelot motivating snake was confirmed by ocelot when snake told him you could have stopped us but ocelot replied no why would i stop you??
For 2 reasons
1) manipulate snake the true goal
2) fool the patriots and build his pmc empire using identity of a dead guy


"After Revolver Ocelot had his right hand cut off during the Shadow Moses Incident, he paid a transplant team in Lyon, France to attach Liquid Snake's right arm to his body. However whenever Solid Snake is nearby, Revolver Ocelot acts as if Liquid Snake's mind has reawakened and taken over his consciousness" -Liquid Snake's Right Arm Database
Ocelot was acting,in MGS 2 the database says that ocelot was faking the " get out of my head liquidddd, BROTHERSSSS",so he first acted.

between MGS2 and MGS4

but then liquid got to him because ocelot and really controlled him because he could feel the dead due to the sorrow so he removed liquid's arm and planted a prosthetic arm then using drugs and other things he planted liquid in him.

In MGS 4
"The mind of Liquid Snake, housed in the body of Revolver Ocelot. Balance was restored to his psyche after the right hand that housed Liquid Snake's will was surgically replaced as a prosthetic limb." -Liquid Ocelot Database

Naomi's Role ?

Naomi main goal was to destroy the patriots and zero and that was stated by big boss in the end so she acted accordingly help snake a bit (Ocelot manipulating snake to achieve his goals) and helping Ocelot and let me remind you that Ocelot and snake shared simi-equal goals.

what did eva know?

Eva at First Knew The Ocelot's plat to free Big Boss so she took the control of the resistance group paradise lost but then she knew The Liquid Ocelot Truly exists that's why she thought that the body thrown in fire was Big Boss's (as Would Liquid Ocelot do) and not Solidus's.
Thanks Shaoken for clearing this point.

Eva and Ocelot common quote.

Big Mama : You and the beasts are no different... Scorched shadows born to the world. When a beast steps into the light... Unless the light is put out... The shadows cannot be erased. So long as there is light... There is shadow. To return everything to normal... The light must be extinguished.

Ocelot : we are beasts created by man unless the light was put the shadows can't be erased so long as there is light erasing shadows will do no good


the nanomachines literally didnt allow the patriots to say the word patriot, so when they tried it automatically came out as la-li-lu-le-lo and yaaay

Eva and Ocelot common quote.

Big Mama : You and the beasts are no different... Scorched shadows born to the world. When a beast steps into the light... Unless the light is put out... The shadows cannot be erased. So long as there is light... There is shadow. To return everything to normal... The light must be extinguished.

Ocelot : we are beasts created by man unless the light was put the shadows can't be erased so long as there is light erasing shadows will do no good

Letter from Mecca

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/14/2010

Malcolm X
April, 1964

Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this Ancient Holy Land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the Holy Scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors.
I have been blessed to visit the Holy City of Mecca. I have made my seven circuits around the Ka'ba, led by a young Mutawaf named Muhammad. I drank water from the well of the Zam Zam. I ran seven times back and forth between the hills of Mt. Al-Safa and Al-Marwah. I have prayed in the ancient city of Mina, and I have prayed on Mt. Arafat.
There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blonds to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and non-white.
America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered 'white'--but the 'white' attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colors together, irrespective of their color.
You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to re-arrange much of my thought-patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth.
During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept in the same bed (or on the same rug)--while praying to the same God--with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the words and in the actions in the deeds of the 'white' Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan, and Ghana.
We were truly all the same (brothers)--because their belief in one God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behavior, and the white from their attitude.
I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man--and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their 'differences' in color.
With racism plaguing America like an incurable cancer, the so-called 'Christian' white American heart should be more receptive to a proven solution to such a destructive problem. Perhaps it could be in time to save America from imminent disaster--the same destruction brought upon Germany by racism that eventually destroyed the Germans themselves.
Each hour here in the Holy Land enables me to have greater spiritual insights into what is happening in America between black and white. The American Negro never can be blamed for his racial animosities--he is only reacting to four hundred years of the conscious racism of the American whites. But as racism leads America up the suicide path, I do believe, from the experiences that I have had with them, that the whites of the younger generation, in the colleges and universities, will see the handwriting on the walls and many of them will turn to the spiritual path of truth--the only way left to America to ward off the disaster that racism inevitably must lead to.
Never have I been so highly honored. Never have I been made to feel more humble and unworthy. Who would believe the blessings that have been heaped upon an American Negro? A few nights ago, a man who would be called in America a 'white' man, a United Nations diplomat, an ambassador, a companion of kings, gave me his hotel suite, his bed. ... Never would I have even thought of dreaming that I would ever be a recipient of such honors--honors that in America would be bestowed upon a King--not a Negro.
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds.

Star Wars Events Timeline

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/14/2010

  1. The First Great Schism was the origin of the first split between the Light and Dark Jedi. It occurred around 24,500 BBY.The Legions of Lettow was first established by dissident Jedi who believed that true power was achieved not through pensive meditation, as taught by their Jedi Masters, but through emotion. The tension between the Jedi and these dissident fallen Jedi, led by General Xendor and his lover Arden Lyn, grew until conflict erupted. They ended when Xendor was slain and Awdrysta Pina stopped Arden Lyn's heart.
  2. The Hundred-Year Darkness , also known as Second Great Schism, was a conflict taking place in 7,003 BBY. The Dark Jedi created monstrous armies to battle the Jedi Order and the Republic. After decades of fighting, the Dark Jedi lost the war in the final Battle of Corbos.
  3. The Great Hyperspace War was a war fought between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire in 5,000 BBY.The conflict encompassed the entire Galactic Republic,though the main forces focused their attention on three Republic worlds, and later took the war to the remote star system Primus Goluud, and the Sith mausoleum world of Korriban.After it overcame the initial shock of the Sith invasion, the Republic's armadas regrouped and annihilated the Sith Empire, forcing the Dark Lord Naga Sadow to exile himself to Yavin 4.
  4. The Great Sith War, also known as the Sith War, the First Sith War, and the Exar Kun War, was a galaxy-wide conflict which took place between the years 4,000 BBY and 3,996 BBY. One of the largest engagements of the Old Sith Wars, the Great Sith War saw the rise of the Sith, once again in opposition to the Jedi Order. The roots of the conflict are traced back to the fall of Freedon Nadd from the Jedi way and his ascension to Dark Lord of the Sith. Eventually his dark influence was discovered on the planet Onderon and the ensuing battle saw the Jedi temporarily break Nadd's hold on the remote planet. This fight against the resurgent power of the Sith was a warning to the Jedi that something ominous was brewing.
  5. The influence of the Sith, however, again resurfaced during the Freedon Nadd Uprising, which managed to establish the means for the Krath to grow in power and influence. Using Sith knowledge that they had gained from Nadd and his followers on Onderon, the Krath instituted a bloody coup in the Empress Teta system and began a series of campaigns aimed at Republic space. After several defeats at the hands of the Krath, Jedi Knight Ulic Qel-Droma advised the Jedi Order that he would infiltrate the Krath and destroy them from within. During his undercover mission, Ulic fell to the dark side and joined forces with another fallen Jedi-turned-Sith by the name of Exar Kun. Eventually, Kun was anointed the new Dark Lord of the Sith with Qel-Droma his apprentice, and together they ushered the galaxy into a new Sith age.
  6. With their allies, Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma launched a series of deadly campaigns against the Republic, eventually making their way to the heart of the galaxy—Coruscant. Following this battle Kun and Qel-Droma launched an assault on Ossus, in an attempt to raid the planet of its Jedi artifacts. However, the battle of Ossus saw the defeat of the Sith forces, the capture of Ulic Qel-Droma, and the retreat of Kun to his base on Yavin 4. Broken and humbled, Qel-Droma agreed to lead the combined forces of the Republic and the Jedi to Yavin 4, in an effort to defeat Exar Kun. Under the combined efforts of the Jedi, Kun was defeated and the Great Sith War brought to an end.
  7. The Mandalorian Wars erupted after two decades of relative peace following the Great Sith War. The conflict was set in motion by the ambitious Mandalore the Ultimate, who reconsolidated the Mandalorian clans under the Neo-Crusader banner.Due to contradictory historical accounts from the period, the exact date of the war's beginning would remain a point of contention among historians. The wars could be said to have begun in the year 3,976 BBY, as it marked the start of Mandalorian aggression along the Outer Rim.The first skirmishes between the Mandalorian and Republic fleets occurred as early as 3,965 BBY, but many published histories tend to emphasize the time period after the Mandalorians invaded the Galactic Republic proper, circa 3,963 BBY. After the invasion, the Republic Military and a faction of the Jedi Order entered the war. The wars concluded in 3,960 BBY with the Republic victory at Malachor V.
  8. The Jedi Civil War, also known as the Second Sith War, the Old Republic Insurrection, and by the Mandalorians as the War of the Star Forge, was a devastating conflict that began when the Jedi Knight Revan, who had led the forces of the Galactic Republic to victory in the Mandalorian Wars, founded a new Sith Empire and declared himself the Dark Lord of the Sith. The war began when he, along with his friend and apprentice, Darth Malak, led an invasion of the Galactic Republic in the year 3,959 BBY. With the aid of veterans from the Mandalorian Wars and a host of Dark Jedi converts that had served with them, the former Jedi hoped to take over the Republic in anticipation of a greater threat, that posed by the True Sith who lurked within the Unknown Regions of the galaxy.During the war Darth Revan nearly succeeded in conquering the Republic, however, a trap set by the Jedi and unwittingly abetted by Malak left him comatose, with his mind nearly destroyed. Barely alive, he was taken from the wreckage by Bastila Shan, whose skills in battle meditation and the Force had allowed the mission to happen. Taken to the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine,Revan was healed by the Jedi Council and reprogrammed to believe that he was an agent loyal to the Republic and placed under the command of Bastila, who was then placed aboard the Endar Spire. In 3,956 BBY, with the intention of drawing out Revan's fragmented memories of the Star Forge, the vast space station that was the source of the seemingly endless resources of the Sith, he was taken to the ecumenopolis of Taris where a Sith fleet under the direct command of Malak was waiting in ambush.Eventually escaping from Taris, Revan, along with Bastila, Carth Onasi, and several others, fled to the Dantooine academy, where the Jedi Masters there retrained him. After several weeks, the Dantooine council sent him and the crew of the Ebon Hawk back out into the wider galaxy to track down the Star Forge's location, at the heart of the ancient Infinite Empire of the Rakata.Later, after a number of ancient Star Maps had been uncovered, Malak led an attack against the Enclave, devastating it and further crippling the Jedi Order. After finding the last Star Map and, from it, deducing the location of the Rakatan homeworld of Lehon, Revan, the Jedi, and the Republic launched the war's final battle. With Malak dead, the Star Forge destroyed, and the Sith fleet scattered and defeated, the long and costly war came to an end.Revan disappeared into unknown space in search of a great threat to the Republic, an expanding Sith Empire led by a mysterious Emperor who planned vengeance for his ancient Jedi enemies. Revan never returned from unknown space.
  9. The Sith Civil War was a conflict that wracked the remains of the Sith Empire in the wake of the Jedi Civil War. Following the death of Darth Malak during the Battle of Rakata Prime, several of the Sith Lords who had followed Darth Revan and Malak during the war attempted to take what scraps they could from the ruins of the Sith Empire. Declaring themselves sovereign warlords, they fractured the empire into a number of small, hotly-contested kingdoms.During the height of the Sith Civil War, many of the Sith warlords united under Darth Sion and Darth Nihilus, but upon their deaths, the Civil War escalated once more. By 3,950 BBY, the remnants of the Sith empire disintegrated entirely due to the constant infighting. As a result, the Galactic Republic was able to conquer Sith space, and reclaim worlds that had been under Sith control since the Great Sith War.
  10. The First Jedi Purge took place some time after the Battle of Rakata Prime, from 3,955–3,954 BBY until 3,951 BBY. This purge saw nearly the entire Jedi Order disappear from the galaxy; the Order publicly disbanded and most of the survivors were killed by the Sith.After the conclusion of the First Sith Civil War circa 3,955 BBY, Darth Traya, Darth Nihilus, and Darth Sion took command of the remnants of Revan's Sith Empire. After the exile of Traya, Sion utilized his Sith Assassins to assassinate Jedi, while Nihilus consumed the life of an entire planet in search of the Jedi. Nihilus's last attack was on the Miraluka world of Katarr, where nearly all of the remaining hundred Jedi died at a conclave on the planet.Nihilus and Sion then became the main perpetrators of the First Jedi Purge, causing the virtual extinction of the Jedi Order. The purge was brought to an end by the Jedi Exile who returned from the unknown. She trained a new generation of Jedi Knights and personally defeated all three Sith Lords. After the purge was over, the Jedi she trained proved essential to reviving the Order. The Jedi Exile was a Human female who was a Jedi Padawan who chose to disobey the orders of the Jedi High Council and aid the Galactic Republic in its struggle against the invading Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders during the Mandalorian Wars. Rising to the rank of Jedi Knight during the war, she served with distinction under the command of her fellow crusaders Revan and Malak, and was eventually commissioned as a General in the Republic Military.The Exile played a vital role in defeating the Mandalorians during the latter stages of the conflict, but as a direct result of her controversial actions during the cataclysmic final battle, she effectively cut her connection to the Force. Afterwards, out of all those who went to war, she was the only Jedi to avoid the call of the dark side and return to the Jedi Council to be judged for her crimes. After she was exiled from the Jedi Order, she wandered the periphery of known space for nearly a decade before returning to the Republic during the Dark Wars, at the height of the First Jedi Purge.Caught up in the schemes of various mysterious factions, she was swiftly drawn into the ongoing conflict and became instrumental in engineering the defeat of the Sith Triumvirate ruled by Darths Sion, Traya, and Nihilus. Able to sense the Force once more, the Exile emerged victorious from her campaign against the Sith Lords and immediately began a search for the long absent Jedi Revan. In the following years, she and the Jedi that she trained during her travels would prove essential to the process of rebuilding the Jedi Order in the wake of its near annihilation at the hands of the Sith.After that The Sith Civil War continues as the remaining Sith fight over the remnants of their empire. At the end of the war one Sith Lord bearing the title of "Darth", being one of the few survivors declares himself a Sith Lord. Another presumed extinction of the Sith.
  11. The Great Galactic War, more commonly known as the Great War, was a war between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic between 3,681 BBY and 3,653 BBY. With the Sith Empire's defeat in the Great Hyperspace War, the Sith were on the verge of collapse. But one Dark Lord escaped the Republic known as the True Sith and made it to the Unknown Regions. There, he re-founded the Empire, himself assuming the title of Sith Emperor, and created a council of other Sith Lords. Using the power of the dark side, the Emperor kept himself alive for over a thousand years after the Great Hyperspace War, rebuilding the Empire's strength and waiting for a chance to avenge the Sith's defeat.The Republic, meanwhile, was challenged in a number of wars over the next few thousand years, including the war with Exar Kun, battles with Mandalorians, war with Darth Revan and the upheaval of the Kanz Disorders.In the year 3,681 BBY, the Sith Emperor saw that the chance for revenge against the Republic and the Jedi had come, and launched an invasion of the Republic. Decades after the war started, the Dark Council gave the Republic a surprising offer: the chance to negotiate peace. The Republic could not afford to ignore this opportunity, and the Jedi Council agreed to it, seeing the war was unwinnable. But while diplomats on both sides opened talks on Alderaan, an elite Sith army invaded Coruscant and held the planet hostage. With no other choice, the Republic diplomats signed the uneven Treaty of Coruscant.The treaty forced the Republic to give up many outlying systems to the True Sith Empire. Although his Empire was stronger than ever, the Sith Emperor no longer seemed to desire total conquest. He handed over control of the Empire to the Dark Council, a body of twelve Sith Lords who would oversee the day-to-day affairs of state. The Dark Lord went on to pursue his own mysterious goals as the Sith consolidated their power.By the end of the war, thousands of Jedi were dead. The Galactic Republic focused its anger on the Jedi, blaming the order for its defeat at the hands of the Sith. Though they were still committed to defending the Republic, the surviving Jedi chose to return to their homeworld of Tython.The end of the Great Galactic War set the stage for a Cold War between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic in the years that followed. This cold war saw a number of border skirmishes and proxy wars, pushing the two super powers to the brink of another war.
  12. The Cold War was an intense stand-off between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic after 3,653 BBY, lasting until 3,623 BBY.[1] The Treaty of Coruscant ended the Great Galactic War, sealing the Sith Empire's victory. Peace was brought, but tensions between the Sith and the Republic remained high. In the thirty years after the War, fear and uncertainty gripped the galaxy. Border skirmishes and proxy wars between the Sith and Republic erupted and the uneasy truce between the two foes appeared to be on the verge of collapse.
  13. 3,500 BBY - Darth Desolous is expelled from the Jedi Order, and forms a Sith army of Pau'ans, training them in the use of cortosis armor and shields, and leads them against the Jedi. Some two thousand Jedi Knights are killed before the carnage ceases.
  14. The New Sith War, also known as the Light and Darkness War, or the Draggulch Period, and known to the Sith as the War of the Fittest, The Betrayal and The Curse of Qalydon, is the name given to the thousand years of conflict between the Jedi and the Sith, which lasted from approximately 2,000 to 1,000 BBY. The last century of the conflict is commonly known as the Republic Dark Age, and the name Light and Darkness War is sometimes specifically applied to the final series of battles between the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness and the Jedi Army of Light. The beginning of the conflict was the Fourth Great Schism of 2,000 BBY, when the Jedi known as Phanius fell to the dark side, naming himself Darth Ruin and The New Sith Empire was founded by Darth Ruin, and was the vast area of galactic territory formed out of the Fourth Great Schism, which the Sith ruled over with an iron fist. darth Ruin creating his own Sith Order, with fifty of his fellow Jedi Knights following him. Although Ruin was eventually killed by his own followers after a defeat, for centuries, the Sith were all but unstoppable, rampaging throughout the galaxy and winning great victories, such as at Mizra.The period from 1,250 to 1,230 BBY is known as the Sictis Wars. In that era, Belia Darzu ruled as Dark Lord of the Sith, unleashing Technobeasts against the Jedi forces.Sometime between 1,010 and 1,006 BBY the New Sith Empire collapsed in a civil war. From the ashes, Kaan established the Brotherhood of Darkness. After nearly a thousand years of war, the Sith were in near-collapse—although the eleventh century BBY would later be described as the "Republic Dark Age", there is little evidence for any coherent Sith threat for more than two centuries after 1,230 BBY. The Sith were divided against one another, as the various warlords and self-proclaimed Dark Lords fought each other for supremacy, and according to the Republic, the war was officially a "series of protracted military engagements" against an illegal organization, as opposed to an actual war.
  15. Out of the ashes of the New Sith Empire, a former Jedi Master, Lord Kaan, reorganized the Sith into the Brotherhood of Darkness, over 20,000 strong. Beginning in around 1,010 BBY, this new group launched a series of attacks designed to destroy the Jedi and the Republic, seizing worlds like Kashyyyk, and even briefly Corulag, Chandrila and Brentaal IV. By 1,001 BBY, they seemed almost poised to conquer Coruscant.However, Lord Hoth, a Jedi Master and Republic General, had been scoring victories of his own against the Sith. Driving the Brotherhood from their home in the heavily-defended region of space known as the Cloak of the Sith, Hoth chased them from world to world, from Hoth to Dromund Kaas to Malrev IV. In many of his earlier campaigns, he commanded Republic fleets and armies, but around 1,002 BBY, he forged the bulk of the Jedi Order's fighting strength into an independent military force known as the Army of Light.The war ended with the armies of Hoth and Kaan facing each other on the world of Ruusan. It was here that the final Battle of Ruusan took place, which ended with Kaan's use of the thought bomb.The conflict resulted in the restructuring of the Republic and the apparent destruction of the Sith (and, it is speculated, the formation of the Cosmic Balance religion). There was to be no full-scale war after the New Sith War for almost a thousand years, until the Clone Wars erupted.leaving Darth Bane the only survivor. To ensure the continued survival of the Sith, Bane institutes the Rule of Two.But The Jedi believed That Sith were destroyed at the Seventh Battle of Ruusan.
  16. It would not be long, however, before Bane's fledgling order was rediscovered by the Jedi and (once again) thought eliminated. The Jedi discovered both the new Rule of Two and the identity of Darth Bane, but did not foresee that the new Sith he had founded would long survive Bane's death. Bane inducted his new apprentice, giving her the name Darth Zannah,Darth Bane was the fabled Sith'ari, the one who was prophesied to restore the Sith to glory.It would not be long, however, before Bane's fledgling order was rediscovered by the Jedi and (once again) thought eliminated. The Jedi discovered both the new Rule of Two and the identity of Darth Bane, but did not foresee that the new Sith he had founded would long survive Bane's death. For 1,000 years the Sith watched and waited, doing their best to destabilize the Galactic Republic without revealing themselves. Many centuries passed. Around 188 BBY, during the Dark Jedi Conflict, Kibh Jeen told the Jedi that the Sith had survived and were operating under the Rule of Two, though his warnings were ignored or passed off as the rantings of a madman. Their presence was masked until Darth Maul, apprentice of Darth Sidious, attacked Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn.
  17. (1,000 – 33 BBY) – The Rule of Two continues. Darth Millennial abandons his master, Darth Cognus, and establishes the Prophets of the Dark Side. Darth Vectivus becomes the administrator of a mine on an asteroid near Bimmiel, and builds a mansion there at the heart of a dark-side energy nexus. He lives out the rest of his days there, surrounded by friends and family, and presumably trains his own apprentice. The Muun Sith Lord, Darth Plagueis is found and trained by an unknown Master. Palpatine is trained under the tutelage of Darth Plagueis, and is given the title of Darth Sidious. Palpatine kills his Master in his sleep. He then trains Darth Maul as his own apprentice.and unifies the sith (Prophet of the Dark Side )The organization which worshiped the Dark Force. They were also known as Emperor's Mages during Palpatine's time as Galactic Emperor. Kadann their lord accepted his destiny. At Sidious's behest he assembled a small group of Dark Force devotees with particular talents for seeing portents and omens in the Force. These became the Prophets of the Dark Side, with Kadann as Supreme Prophet. By the time the New Order came to pass, Kadann would become one of the new Emperor's most trusted—and most secret—advisors.
  18. In 52 BBY, Darth Sidious started infiltrating the Republic's government, carefully implementing the steps of a plan set down centuries in the past, preparing to address "wrongs" the Galaxy at large had long since forgotten with the Invasion of Naboo in 32 BBY. Though his apprentice, Darth Maul, was slain in that battle at the hands of Jedi Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi, the day proved an unparalleled victory for the Sith; Darth Sidious, as Senator Palpatine of Naboo, was elected to the office of Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic.More than a decade passed, during which Palpatine manipulated the Senate into granting him more and more powers. His new apprentice, Darth Tyranus, formed the Confederacy of Independent Systems, which seceded from the Galactic Republic, thus beginning a long and bloody conflict known as the Clone Wars. During this time as the conflict progressed, the Jedi began to grow suspicious of Palpatine's expanding powers. As the Clone Wars neared their climax, the Jedi ranks had been thinned considerably. At last, the moment had come for the Sith to reclaim their former glory. Supreme Chancellor Palpatine—who had been revealed as Darth Sidious by Anakin Skywalker—killed four Jedi Masters who had been sent to arrest him. He then crowned himself Galactic Emperor, and replaced the ancient Republic with a "New Order" — the Galactic Empire — a galaxy-spanning dark side theocracy masquerading as a dictatorship the likes of which had not been seen for millennia, through the Declaration of a New Order.
  19. The Jedi Purge began with the issuing of Order 66, in which the clone troopers received their transmission from Palpatine to kill their Jedi commanders, and attack the Jedi Temple, led by Palpatine's third and greatest apprentice, Darth Vader. The Purge ensured that what few Jedi remained became even fewer, until only a handful of the original ten thousand remained. It was a dark time for the galaxy.Eventually, however, the Alliance to Restore the Republic arose to overthrow the Empire a year before the Battle of Yavin. The 38-year Galactic Civil War drew many into its fold, perhaps the most notable of whom was Luke Skywalker, the son of Anakin Skywalker (or as he was better known, Darth Vader).The Galactic Civil War, known by 43 ABY as the First Galactic Civil War, was a major galactic conflict (and the most famous) fought between the oppressive Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic, a rebel faction dedicated to the revival of the Galactic Republic, which the Empire supplanted at the culmination of the Clone Wars years prior.Shortly after Skywalker destroyed the Empire's terrifying Death Star superweapon, the Emperor and Vader became aware of the young man's identity. Both Sith Lords hoped to corrupt Luke to the dark side, but each had a different plan for the future. Vader desired to kill the Emperor and rule the galaxy with his son, but Palpatine wished to replace Vader with the boy as his fourth apprentice. Neither goal was successful, and it appeared that the Sith had finally come to an end, as originally prophesied by the Jedi. With the destruction of the second Death Star at the Battle of Endor, Darth Vader returned to the light side as Anakin Skywalker once again, slaying his former master and being slain in return.The return of Anakin Skywalker, formerly Darth Vader, to the light side, and the death of the Emperor, who was the last true master of Darth Bane's reformed Sith Order, brought to fruition the prophecy of the Chosen One who would "bring balance to the Force."

The illusionist

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/14/2010

Have you ever wondered how any illusionist like Darren Brown can give you information about yourself although he just has met you,they use techniques like Cold Reading,General Statments and sending subconscious messages using NLP.
People interpret what they hear in the meaning they want to hear and not the meaning that was intended. so they only believe what they want to hear.

Cold Reading

A practiced cold reader can still quickly obtain a great deal of information about the subject by analyzing the person's body language, age, clothing or fashion, hairstyle, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race or ethnicity, level of education, manner of speech, place of origin, etc. Cold readers commonly employ high probability guesses about the subject, quickly picking up on signals from their subjects as to whether their guesses are in the right direction or not, and then emphasizing and reinforcing any chance connections the subjects acknowledge while quickly moving on from missed guesses.

In an interview published in New Scientist, Brown says that he first developed many of his "psychological illusion" skills through his training in hypnotherapy before he was involved in learning close up magic. When asked how he was able to produce various psychological illusions such as apparent mind-reading, lie detection and hypnotic induction, Brown claimed to be able to read on subtle cues such as a micro-muscle movements that indicate to him if someone is lying or holding something back. He also states that his participants are carefully selected based on their suggestibility and responsiveness which is common in stage hypnosis. He believes that the presence of a television camera also increases responsiveness.

General Statments

1) Rainbow Ruse : a statment that credits a person with something but also credits him with the opposite
you are honest but when "the circumstances are right" you lie to protect people around you

2)Flattery : a statment appeal to a persons ego saying he is the best

3)Jacques statment: are charchter statments based on different phases which happens to every one

3)Fuzzy Facts : i see an event in europe "possibly" britain or "could be blah blah like" egypt
read body gestures to know if you are on the right track or not

4) good chance: a guess about a specfic something with a high chance that it is related to you: does john mean anything to you? yes,it is my father's middle name

5) stat fact: a fact based on static info or person's environment info (frequent religion in the area),time of the year

6)Opposite game: describing someone in the person's life who the person dislikes by describing a person opposite in charchter traits to the client

7)Incidental question: is this true?,how is this related to you?

8)vanishing negative: you don't work with children do you?
           No or yes
           I Thought so

9)Russian Doll : I feel something about your daughter?
            I don't have a daughter
            may be she is a god-daughter
            I don't have a god-daughteer
            she is like a daughter to you may be a friend's daughter


Neuro-linguistic programming makes you read your opponent through eye cues and muscle movment and also send subconscious messages which forces ideas in someone's head.Several authors have claimed that Brown uses neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) in his act which "consists of a range of magical 'tricks', misdirection and, most intriguing, setting up audiences to provide the response that he wishes them to provide by using subtle subliminal cues in his conversation with them."

Subconscious Messages Examples

verbal messages IT IS BLUE,isn't it? (Plants in the Target's Head Blue Color)
noun messages I want you TOO (Plants in the Target's Head Number Two)
Body gestures by fingers which points to things

Manipulate Decision Making

In a sense a handshake induction is a 'forced' action. The person is NOT expecting that sort of action when u shake their hand, and that action 'short-circuits' or interrupts their conscious thought process, and makes them very vulnerable to suggestion..

Assasin's Creed

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/13/2010

"Our Creed does not command us to be free. It commands us to be wise." ~ Al-Tair

I have sworn to be done with it. To not gaze into its core. but faced as I am with the prospect of my end, what harm is there I one last look . . .

"Nothing is true, everything is permitted." ~ The Assassin's Creed

The Templars sought to create a perfect world by controlling free will, the Templars emphasized the establishment of a small ruling elite, who would control all aspects of civilization from education, to military force, and food distribution resuting in unity of thoughts, decisions, goals, order and peace, but they were apposed by the Assassin Order who believed that mankind should always have the ability to choose; to have free will, even if it meant a flawed humanity, they fought to ensure the survival of free will, as it allowed for the progression of new ideas and the growth of individuality. They sought peace through the education of the people which is the Liberal Ideology

Abstergo has taken 17 different descendants of assassins to experiment on and use their memories to find the Pieces of Eden, remnants of a forgotten society that have the power to control people. Abstergo is an agent of the Templars, who want to use the Pieces to rob people of their free will and create eternal stability. The Assassins are the order that has tried to stop them. The battle has raged on throughout history.

It turns out that the Roman gods such as Jupiter and Minerva, were all part of an advanced society that existed before the time of humanity. This society, the first civilization, was called Eden. This society was destroyed, as is explained at the end of the game, by a shift in the sun's magnetic poles. The advanced people of Eden lived in harmony with humanity, providing them with the advanced technology, hence the city and the suits Adam and Eve are wearing in this video.In this video, Adam and Eve are taking a Piece of Eden, an apple, and running away with it. This is symbolic of the 'first sin' wherein Adam and Eve take the apple from the Garden of Eden.Adam and Eve are humans in this advanced society, which is kept in peace by using the Apple of Eden. There is no free will. The Templars later have the same aim: to use the Apple and the other Pieces of Eden to control people and make peace by manipulation. Adam and Eve are against this in their society, and they were the first humans. This is why, in the last Abstergo email, they are talking about how the truth about humanity's origins makes them sick. Humanity is descended from Adam and Eve, who shared the goals of the Assassins: free will; not the goals of the Templar. To be descended from early assassins disgusts them.

Adam, Eve, and the humans (seen in the factor laboring for the ruling caste) survive the destruction of the world, along with the Pieces of Eden. The 'gods' become nothing more than legends.It is also said that Jesus, another Biblical figure, used a Piece of Eden to manipulate his followers, hinting again that the mythical people of Eden were abusers of the Piece, and Templars. The puzzles reveals that influential world leaders were in possession of Apples and when killed their artifacts where acquired by the templars.

Reality or illusion

The Dream argument states that one can never be fully certain whether or not we’re “awake” because a dreamer doesn’t realize he’s dreaming. A Chinese philosopher named Zhuangzi stated that:

Zhuangzi dreamt he was a butterfly , a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn’t know he was Zhuangzi. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Zhuangzi. But he didn’t know if he was Zhuangzi who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Zhuangzi.
Then Plato questioned whether or not only perception of the objects constitutes real knowledge of them in his Allegory of the Cave, It is written as a fictional dialogue between Plato's teacher Socrates and Plato's brother Glaucon :

Socrates describes a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to ascribe forms to these shadows. Socrates suggests the prisoners would take the shadows to be real things not just reflections of reality, since they are all they had ever see.
Suppose that a prisoner is freed and permitted to stand up. If someone were to show him the things that had cast the shadows, he would not recognize them for what they were and could not name them; he would believe the shadows on the wall to be more real than what he sees."Suppose further," Socrates says, "What if someone forcibly dragged such a man out of the cave: wouldn't the man be angry at the one doing this to him?"
After some time on the surface, however, Socrates suggests that the freed prisoner would acclimate. He would see more and more things around him, until he could look upon the Sun. He would understand that the Sun is the cause of all those things he and his companions had been seeing"
Socrates next asks Glaucon to consider the condition of this man. "Wouldn't he remember his first home, what passed for wisdom there, and his fellow prisoners, and consider himself happy and them pitiable? no longer being accustomed to the darkness? "Wouldn't they say that he went up and came back with his eyes corrupted, and that it's not even worth trying to go up? And if they were somehow able to get their hands on and kill the man who attempts to release and lead up, wouldn't they kill him?"
our perception of reality in our environment is a shadow for our believes and thoughts

Movies Discussing The Reality Of Perception
  1. The Matrix "Are we Living inside a computer simulation?"
  2. The Thirteenth Floor "Are we Living inside a computer simulation inside a computer simulation?"
  3. Inception "Are we Living in a dream?"
  4. The Sixth Sense "Are we dead?"
  5. The Others "Are we dead and are our haunting ghosts are alive people?" 
  6. Secret Window "Is it really me doing those things?" 
  7. Vanilla Sky: Am I still dreaming?
  8. eXistenZ: Are we still in the game?
  9. Fight Club: Am I Tyler Durden?
In the time being now we can control machines by our thoughts using sensors reading neurons of the brain so we are on the road to the matrix

Movies Discussing The Controlled Reality
  1. Dark City "Life Controlled by Aliens on a distant planet"
  2. The Truman Show "Life  in a TV reality Show Controlled by the Director"
  3. The Game "Life is a controlled series of events composing a game"
So why do we dream?

Freudian view of dreams as subconscious dreamily wishes to be interpreted.

Zhang hypothesizes that the function of sleep is to process, encode and transfer the data from the short-term memory to the long-term memory, though there is not much evidence backing up this so-called "consolidation." NREM sleep processes the conscious-related memory (declarative memory), and REM sleep processes the unconscious related memory (procedural memory).So it helps us in proccessing memories and learning from them , help us to connect old ideas (memories) to new ones (future) or even think of new ones who are connected to the old ones. They help us to think outside the box (unconventional solutions)

A 2001 study showed evidence that illogical locations, characters, and dream flow may help the brain strengthen the linking and consolidation of semantic memories.One stage of memory consolidation is the linking of distant but related memories. Payne and Nadal hypothesize that these memories are then consolidated into a smooth narrative, similar to a process that happens when memories are created under stress.NREM sleep processes the past and sees how it may connect to the future (Super-facial Learning) but REM Sleep processes the past and sees how experincies the future after proceesing the past (Learning from Future Silumation).

Robert (1886) a physician from Hamburg, was the first who suggested that dreams are a need and that they have the function to erase (a) sensory impressions which were not fully worked up and (b) ideas which were not fully developed during the day.

How 3D??

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/13/2010

There many types of 3D created images but mainly in media (Movies and Games) there is mainly:

Is the sole 3D technique among those described that does not require the use of glasses on the part of the viewer. Yet it does require a so-called 'auto-stereoscopic display', where the viewer has to position himself precisely and has to keep this angle in order to see a 3D image similar to holography.

Stereoscopic Vision                                                                                                                 
Two separate images reach the brain simultaneously one per eye and the brain calculates distance of the object from us.Stereoscopy uses this techniques where two images perceived from different perspectives. Each eye of the viewer is provided with separate image information, so that a pair of 2D images using the brain create an image of three-dimensionality and the illusion of depth.

Now We Have a Stream of image pairs, how can we assign left image to left eye only and right image to right eye only?

Liquid crystal shutter glasses : Glasses containing liquid-crystal that block or pass light through in synchronization with the images on the screen usually the rate for each eye is 60 Hz resulting in combined images on screen to alternate with 120 Hz, using the concept of alternate frame sequencing.Nvidia 3D Vision gaming kit introduced in 2008 introduced this technology to mainstream consumers and PC gamers and it is used by most 3D-TVs.

Linearly polarized glasses: Two images are projected superimposed onto the same screen through orthogonal polarization filters.One image horizontal and the other one vertical. The viewer wears low-cost eyeglasses which also contain a pair of orthogonal polarizing filters. As each filter only passes light which is similarly polarized and blocks the orthogonally polarized light, each eye only sees one of the images, and the effect is achieved. Linearly polarized glasses require the viewer to keep his head level, as tilting of the viewing filters will cause the images of the left and right channels to bleed over to the opposite channel. 


Circularly polarized glasses: To present a stereoscopic motion picture, two images are projected superimposed onto the same screen through circular polarizing filters of opposite handedness. The viewer wears low-cost eyeglasses which contain a pair of analyzing filters (circular polarizers mounted in reverse) of opposite handedness. Light that is left-circularly polarized is extinguished by the right-handed analyzer, while right-circularly polarized light is extinguished by the left-handed analyzer. The viewer can tilt his or her head and still maintain left/right separation.


Infitec glasses: Infitec stands for interference filter technology. The filters divide the visible color spectrum into six narrow bands - two in the red region, two in the green region, and two in the blue region (called R1, R2, G1, G2, B1 and B2 for the purposes of this description). The R1, G1 and B1 bands are used for one eye image, and R2, G2, B2 for the other eye. The human eye is largely insensitive to such fine spectral differences so this technique is able to generate full-color 3D images with only slight colour differences between the two eyes.Sometimes this technique is described as a "super-anaglyph".Dolby uses a form of this technology in its Dolby 3D theatres.


Complementary color anaglyphs: Employs one of a pair of complementary color filters for each eye. The most common color filters used are red and cyan. The eye is sensitive to three primary colors, red, green, and blue. The red filter admits only red, while the cyan filter blocks red, passing blue and green (the combination of blue and green is perceived as cyan).The left eye image is then converted to red (blue and green channels set to zero) and the right eye image is converted to cyan (red channel set to zero). These two images are then combined. They can be seen overlapping in the middle of the diagram. When they are fully overlapped the result is the anaglyph .This anaglyph therefore contains the left eye view and the right eye view, but as different colours. When the image is viewed through red green spectacles then the two images can be separated. This is because the left eye only receives the red image and the right eye only the green.

Sony Combined all 3D-Media forms in a single image

A 3D TV, Nvidia 3d Vision, PS3 and programs like MakeMe3D will be able to create a 3D image from a 2D image. They can take a single stream (2D) and it creates separate images for the left and right eye, which - when viewed together - result in 3D adding depth to it like giving games which aren't 3D the 3D feel. But to get the full 3D effect, you need 3D content that was filmed and broadcast specifically for 3D. Both Sony Bravia 3d and Nvidia 3d Vision use the same shutter glass technique.

With any previous technique you need a 120 Hz TV with one of the following notations:
  1. Full 3D or 3DTV : 3D HDTVs are capable of displaying 3D out of the box.
  2.  3D-ready HDTV: You will need to buy an adapter to get your HDTV to display 3D. Without this adapter, your HDTV will display great 2D pictures, but you will not be able to watch anything in 3D.

How Was Windows 7 Hacked??

Posted by Ali Reda | Posted in | Posted on 12/13/2010

Windows 7 - as you know - can be permanently activated with OEM style instant offline activation which will pass Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation but how did this happen?

All you need to activate Windows 7 as OEM is just these things.
1) SLIC 2.1 (Software Licensing Table) in your BIOS.
2) OEM Certificate Matching Bios.
3) OEM-SLP Key matching your Edition of Windows.

At first Windows 7 Ultimate OEM DVD ISO from Lenovo was leaked and posted on Chinese forum. The ISO was quickly grabbed to retrieve boot.wim, which was then used to retrieve the OEM-SLP product key and OEM certificate for Windows 7 Ultimate. After extracting the OEM certificate and OEM product key, it’s confirmed that Windows 7 uses the same digitally signed OEM certificate (in .xrm-ms extension) that is been used in Windows Vista. Windows Vista OEM cert can be used in Windows 7.


  1. OEMID part of SLIC table in BIOS specified by the OEM munfacturer.
  2. OEMTableID part of SLIC table in BIOS specified by the OEM munfacturer.
  3. The OEM sends the public key + its own OEMID to Microsoft, in order to be signed using Microsoft private key and This becomes the OEM certificate.
  4. The Windows Marker is also a digital certificate that is generated by taking into account the OEMID + OEMTableID. It is signed by the OEM by using the private key that matches the public key.
Thus, the same OEM cert can be used for many different SLICs, as long as OEMID remains the same, although Windows Marker has changed due to different OEMTableID. So by aquiring the OEM certifacte and the crosponding OEM product key we only need the bios to contain SLIC 2.1 with the OEMID and OEMTableID of the crosponding OEM munfacturer.

BIOS Modding

The SLIC 2.1 can be modded into BIOS physically (hardmod or biosmod - flashing the bios) which is a permenant way or been emulated during Windows boots up (softmod) using loaders like Daz loader which the loader code in the boot code in the MBR (Master Boot Record) it even emulates SLIC 2.1 although the actual BIOS has SLIC 2.0 so no need at all to risk flashing the BIOS . Various SLIC 2.1 BIN has been retrieved from various notebook computer that shipped with new SLIC 2.1 in BIOS to support the free Windows 7 Upgrade Option from Windows Vista.
