Are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? To visit a surreal world, where black is white and white is carrots?

A friend, Metacognician in Shanghai, describes the situation as follows: “Life is more absurd than movies. I've gone down the rabbit hole too, when it just becomes more and more strange and you wonder how that all is supposed to make sense.” I asked him if I should just embrace it. He answered, “Why should you ... change the universe?”

It started with a psychotic named Jim Kiraly who resides, we think, at 6329 Twinberry Circle, Avila Beach, California.

Jim Kiraly is a respected citizen. A churchgoer. A Vice President of Transamerica Corporation. And a violent abuser who tried to use an emergency anti-violence measure, one intended to protect battered women, to stop his victim in a wheelchair from writing a book.

Concise enough? :)

For attorneys: Jim Kiraly filed for CLETS against his son and victim, who lived 200 miles away, did not own a car, and was in a wheelchair. His son and victim was not asked to end communications. Jim had no (zero) specific and relevant allegations that were not perjury. But he turned down repeated offers of no-contact and a signed stipulation that gave him everything but CLETS. He insisted on CLETS if his victim ever once “discussed” him with third parties.

In the end, Jim Kiraly signed an agreement far weaker than the ones he'd been offered.

A review of Court paperwork and other materials will tend to confirm that Jim and other parties, including attorneys on all sides, committed multiple felonies, crimes, and faux pas. :P

The word “abuser” is stated here publicly and without equivocation. A formal offer is hereby made to reaffirm the word in writing and under oath. Attorneys will understand the significance of the point. In short, there is little terror of a threatened defamation suit on this side. Actually, we feel that such a suit will fit nicely up Jim Kiraly's abuser ass.

Jim has one son, Ken Kiraly, who invented the Amazon Kindle and is one of the leads at Amazon's secret Lab126. Another son, Tom Kiraly is one of the leads, a Vice President-CFO type, at medical insurance firms, including one of the largest, Humana Corporation.

These people and some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley legal circles have committed or are involved in multiple crimes.

For the next decade or two, we're going to explore the crimes that these people committed, the motivations and the denial involved, the background and histories that led each person to make the choices that they did, and ways to build upon what happened and move towards positive societal goals.

There's plenty to go over. These people committed or were involved in: Spousal abuse, child abuse, DDOS (a highly prosecutable violation of CFAA), extortion, perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury (a possible felony), false police reports, conspiracy to file false police reports (a possible felony), unlawful threats, barratry, defamation, malpractice, civil harassment, criminal harassment, abuse of process, and violations of SCCBA Professional Standards.

The point was to force Jim's oldest son and victim, me, to sign a gag order. I was in a wheelchair. I'd never made a single inappropriate threat against my abuser. I wasn't even asked to not to call anybody. But Jim threatened to put me in a violence database unless I agreed never to write about him.

I won the right to write, but I lost my home of 25 years, most of my possessions, my chances for retirement, everything. Everything but a realization.

I can make a difference. I can conduct research for legitimate and reasonable purposes, document what happened, and analyze the choices of the people involved:

Maggie told me that she didn't know what she could say to me about what happened. However, we have decades to work it out. It will be productive. I'd like to direct the attention of attorneys and other parties to the:

Monday 2012-11-26 — The truth is a sword

There was an IRC disagreement on Sunday 121126 that spilled over to Monday. For those who know about the matter, an agreement was reached on Monday afternoon. John brokered the agreement; that was good of him.

Events ran from 10:15am Sunday to 1:00pm Monday. Just one day but it was a lively one.

The problem had to do with Cody, who had seemed hostile since the Kiraly Cases became an issue in June. At the time, he took exception to remarks that I made related to James Kiraly. The part about James's difficulties with the truth.

I assume that, in June, Cody projected positive feelings about his own father Dean into the Kiraly situation that he commented on at the time. If this is the case, he was wrong to do so. James and Dean were quite different.

At any rate, Cody had come across as arrogant during a few encounters from June to November. He often spoke of his own importance. This was connected to his status as a genuine though minor public figure. He seemed to equate attention with significance. This is a mistake that celebrities of all stripes tend to make, of course.

Cody did display a sense of humor when I wrote an extemporaneous poem about him; a fun bit of doggerel. His response to the poem, privately, was “my hat's off to you, dude”. Publicly, though, he referred to the work as “creepy”.

Matters reached a head on Sunday 121125. Cody challenged me to a “rap battle”. I was ill at the time. I wanted nothing to do with a “rap battle”. Or with Cody's juvenile nonsense in general. The situation escalated. In the end, Cody overstepped reasonable bounds. He feels the same way about me, of course.

Cody's thought processes throughout the situation illustrate useful points. I'll write further about this part in my books. I hope to speak with Cody, at his convenience, first.

For now, I'll say that things appear to be settled. And that a new IRC channel I created as part of the aftermath strikes me as worthwhile.

I won't name the new channel here for now because it's still under construction. It may not even get off the ground. But I wanted to say that, whether or not the channel survives for long, I'm glad I attempted this.

There's a fun part. The new channel includes quite a few IRC friends. I've changed most of their names but: Metacognician, Nivia, Aequus, Blue Dream, Tactician, Phenek, Kappelin, Rubidiun, Mr. Meow, Tariq, John, Anunnaki the God, the Masked Lua, Ositha, Jack of Shadows, and others are there; in one place, at least briefly, for the first time.

Even Twisted Time showed up briefly for a visit at the start. That had to be a sign.

During the dispute, several people offered me support. I'd like to say I appreciated it. I regret the fact they needed to spend time on the matter.

Most people, even the ones who helped, believed that I should have “walked away” from the situation. Surrendered regardless of the facts. To fight was impolite.

I understand their feelings. But “walk away” would have been the wrong choice in this case. I stand by the following remarks, which I made to Tariq afterward:

I have seen what the world is. And what it needs. It needs kindness. And patience. And the truth. The truth is not a blanket, Tariq. It is a sword.

Note to my good friends Michael and Natasha in San Jose: Don't even bother trying to “go there” with misrepresentations of the metaphor “sword”. For what it's worth, by the way, I'm a bit tired of you.
