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:

Wednesday 2012-12-19 — I See IRC: A chat with Phenek

121219. I chatted off and on with Phenek Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon. It's good to feel connected to people.

<phenek> we are not in hurry with that
<OldCoder> I am satisfied that the year will end on an up note
<OldCoder> Mostly concerned that my father intends to bankrupt me

<phenek> he is evil
<OldCoder> No. I will write of this.
<OldCoder> Out of all of this books will come
<OldCoder> What people believe
<OldCoder> They are usually heroes in their own eyes
<OldCoder> This year has permitted me to write
<OldCoder> And even to rhyme
<OldCoder> Those changes could have been more gentle :-)
<phenek> alright :)

<OldCoder> You will be a father in days. How do you feel?
<phenek> funny
<OldCoder> Transition
<phenek> I still can't really realize it
<OldCoder> You will
<phenek> although I do realize it
<phenek> but part of me doesn't
<OldCoder> Yep

<OldCoder> Proceeding as planned. Fixing up blog. Will rest briefly soon. Work for a while. My attorney may need help with a PC virus.
<phenek> how are you? my father is visiting us at the moment.
<phenek> I will talk with you more soon
<OldCoder> Have a nice visit

<OldCoder> How is your father?
<phenek> father was ok. gave him his birthday present and christmas present
<phenek> and he gave us presents

<OldCoder> What were the presents?
<phenek> we gave him tie and a golden tiepin for birthday
<phenek> and some villeroy and boch porcelain thing for the kitchen
<phenek> as a christmas present
<phenek> he gave us both mittens. and some parfumes :D
<phenek> he has a new parfume business going on with some russian associates of his
<phenek> and he gave chocolate too

<phenek> do you feel better physically? I read that yesterday you felt better than normally after eating
<phenek> ohhh boy that Pho stuff looks great
<phenek> I wish we had it in finland too
<phenek> aha! we have one vietnamese with pho
<phenek> well, we can continue talking about it tomorrow :) bye bye!
<OldCoder> For the pho you should go
<OldCoder> Oh low dough no woe so go show pho


Tuesday 2012-12-11 — I See IRC: Mothers

121211. NoClues misunderstood something. I think he may have believed that my mother was dead:

<noclues> go back to bed
<noclues> it is still too early
<OldCoder> No
<OldCoder> I slept 4.0 whole hours
<noclues> EEEE
<noclues> not enough
<noclues> Go back to bed
<OldCoder> No
<noclues> Yes
<noclues> I am your mother and you will do as I say
<noclues> Now go to bed
<OldCoder> If you only knew
<noclues> @OldCoder If you only knew
<noclues> Oh :(

The part NoClues misunderstood is that I never actually had a mother. Or a biological family. Looking back, it's astonishing that it took what the Kiralys did in 2012 to make the situation clear. I'm slow about some things. That isn't too bad. But to go a lifetime blind to the obvious...


Monday 2012-12-10 — I See IRC: Cognition

121210. I spoke with Metacognician yesterday about the changes I've observed in myself:

<OldCoder> Metacognician... Everything above, all of it, was extemporaneous. There are very few edits. It is all simply there. What is happening to me?

<Metacognician> a cynical analysis would be “your brain is full of short-circuits”

<OldCoder> Why is that cynical? And what does it mean?

<Metacognician> it's the same perspective that calls love a biochemical glitch

<OldCoder> I am fine with that

<Metacognician> you are adapting — to what I'm not sure, but it looks like your word-memory is getting a good workout these days

<Metacognician> if I had more answers I would give them to you ... I've experienced similar states, but I have no deeper understanding of the mechanics involved


Thursday 2012-12-06 — I See IRC: Fantasy and Reality

121206. Discussion with Prasanga. Posted with permission.

<Prasanga> oldcoder still my exam is going on today i have Data structure and algorithms
<OldCoder> Are you prepared?
<Prasanga> its hard to me that subject oldcoder but i still reading

<Prasanga> oldcoder yesterday i made small android application and i installed it on to my phone. now i debugging using my phone not simulator.
<OldCoder> All right

<Prasanga> oldcoder yes this 11th exam will over
<Prasanga> i am moving to reading again i have few hours
<OldCoder> You are prepared. Prepared is the best luck.
<Prasanga> yes oldcoder
<OldCoder> I feel you'll be successful in life
<OldCoder> You are creative and sensible

<Prasanga> Thats strength for me oldcoder
<Prasanga> thats word right oldcoder ima sensitive but i dont like to be like that
<OldCoder> Be like what? Sensitive?
<Prasanga> yes
<OldCoder> It is good to be that way

It makes you real
If you feel
That is the deal
Feel and be real

<Prasanga> yes oldcoder but i read about clothing advertising. they published “Fantasy is better than reality” ... but i am not agree with that
<OldCoder> What do you believe?

<Prasanga> i believe reality. fantasy is not real... using fantasy we cover our reality... but one day world will reveal our reality... then fantasy go away
<OldCoder> Yes
<OldCoder> This is true. Fantasy is about philosophy. A way to see things. Not to replace what is there.


Saturday 2012-12-01 — I See IRC: The New Channel

121201. Jack of Shadows commented on the fact that the new channel is doing O.K. so far because we're close to 50 members. But head count isn't the key issue:

50 is no big deal
To make the channel real
And survive
Or thrive
Need conversation
Before elation
To sure
it will endure


Saturday 2012-12-01 — I See IRC: Who Is Telling the Truth

<Ositha> Hah. You're in the wrong channels.
<OldCoder> I forgot what I said.
<OldCoder> What was this about?
<Ositha> Heh
<Ositha> Griffins and dragons.
<Ositha> :P
<OldCoder> All right
<OldCoder> Stop by the new channel. It seems to be working out.
<Ositha> Sure
<OldCoder> Thunderdome came and said the ops banned him. Also they are angry about the new channel. Somebody else says no. Who is telling the truth?
<Ositha> You
<OldCoder> Oh


Wednesday 2012-11-14 — I See IRC: Pet Photos

<OldCoder> The dogs are funny
<OldCoder> I helped the guy in Mexico. And I said:
<OldCoder> “You must pay me. I demand a picture of your dog!”
<phenek> hah :)
<OldCoder> And he gave me the picture of the little dog
<OldCoder> It is a true story
<OldCoder> I was feeling playful that day

<phenek> I have a LOT of photos. some of dogs too.
<OldCoder> Pets are important
<OldCoder> I will write of them
<OldCoder> I miss the white cat on the photos page
<OldCoder> More than any member of the immediate family
<OldCoder> The family was there to hurt and cause pain
<OldCoder> The cat...
<OldCoder> was simply happy and friendly and grateful
<OldCoder> She would always purr
<OldCoder> As soon as she saw LittleCoder enter the room
<OldCoder> All he needed to do was be there
<OldCoder> And she was content
<phenek> nice cat

<OldCoder> Yes


Friday 2012-12-14 — I See IRC: Code as Art

121214. This IRC fragment may only be of interest to engineers. Edited for length.

<Archangel> its already done in JAVA in terasology
<Archangel> also opensource
<Archangel> and it works reasonably fast
<Archangel> so i dont worry bout the speed
<OldCoder> Having fun? :-)
<Archangel> yeah, its fun

<Archangel> im in the matrix literaly now
<Archangel> doing rotation functions
<OldCoder> So you are converting Java to Lua?
<Archangel> basically
<OldCoder> This will be interesting to see

<Archangel> i already ported some usable stuff
<OldCoder> I assume that will be needed for other things
<Archangel> trees already need that
<OldCoder> Got it
<OldCoder> So this goes into worlds with the new trees
<Archangel> yes
* OldCoder nods

<OldCoder> You are still composing music
<OldCoder> In a way
<Archangel> no
<OldCoder> No?
<OldCoder> This is art
<Archangel> i never did
<OldCoder> Then
<OldCoder> You are composing now
<Archangel> ah, this way
<Archangel> code is music for me, indeed
<OldCoder> :-)

<Archangel> far better even
<Archangel> because it works
<OldCoder> Works?
<Archangel> code is such piece of creation
<Archangel> that actually works
<Archangel> is changing
<OldCoder> A work that changes over time
<Archangel> yes

<Archangel> imagine madonna releasin “like a virgin” dozens of times
<Archangel> because she changed something ;)
<OldCoder> Evolution of expression
