Yeah, I'm still here in Sanremo. I guess, sometimes, it takes a leap of faith.

Now, then.

The problem with directional mics, as some of you may know, is that wind, say the breeze coming off the Mediterranean, will often wreck the quality of what you're trying to record. Now, if you're shooting a movie, you put that microphone as close as you can to your actors and wait for the wind to die down between "takes."

But if you're recording a bunch of corrupt executives on the beach in Sanremo - from FAR AWAY - sometimes you just have to cross your fingers and hope for the best.

And sometimes, you get it.

Check out this CONVERSATION I recorded between Mittelwerk and a couple of his cronies. It raises new questions - yeah, I'm getting frustrated too - but it also answers a few. Even if we're not in the RIGHT place, it seems like we just might be heading there.


19.09 Update

19.09: Is it just me, or did you detect a little insurrection in the ranks? Guess management courses aren't required to get your evil medical degree.

So, there you have it. Confirmation. Our suspicions were right. Those savants were running the Valenzetti Equation (or an attempted facsimile)!!

If, like me, your brief moment of elation has turned into dread, then you, too, realize how serious this is. True Valenzetti Equation or false, Mittelwerk is dipping his hands in a stream that leads to apocalypse.

But, what's next... is it this SPIDER PROTOCOL? If so, I'm afraid the wheels are already in motion.

Where is ALVAR HANSO in this??? Mittelwerk claims to have Hanso's proxy, but I agree with Peter Thompson.

A Hanso appearance would answer a lot of my questions.

But I don't think that's gonna happen unless we make it happen. How? I don't know.

I realize that seems to be my stock answer right now... and, I won't lie... with each passing day, my hopes are dwindling that this thing's gonna come out on the side of right.

But, I'm not outta hope yet. Valenzetti, the veracity of Mittelwerk's equation, they still seem to be a wrench in the good doc's gears.

Unfortunately the man's fate is still unknown. I've talked to a lot of people - there is no definitive account of his alleged death...

But then again, there's also no evidence he's alive. It's a dangerous gamble, but I may have to follow Mittelwerk's lead after all.

GidgetGirl, I know we may be on the outs - but, for the sake of everyone, do you have anything else I can use?

Audio Transcript

The conversation is between Thomas Mittelwerk, Peter Thompson and an unidentified woman

TM: I admit the fire sets us back, but all we’ve really lost is time.

Woman: And Vigi Benoffski. If his family goes public…

TM: They won’t, I’ve seen to that.

Woman: We’re already funnelling millions into your mental programmes without knowing if this equations even…

TM: You say it like its an insult, “mental programs”. The Mental Health Appeal is the centre-piece of all our future plans.

PT: Tom we’re not disputing the theory, but take a step back, how can we ever know with certainty we’re working with the real Valenzetti equation?

TM: Because Peter I am certain.

Woman: Well what does Hanso have to say?

TM: Hanso is totally onboard.

PT: Yeah, it’d be nice if he made an appearance.

TM: You want to see Alvar Hanso, Peter, why don’t you watch the Orientation film, he talks all about the Valenzetti equation – I’ll send you the DVD.

PT: Its not for me, Tom, its for our partners.

TM: Then let me be clear, this is the equation. Now, if you believe the web geeks, legend says Valenzetti never even kept a copy of it for himself and that’s true. He offered it to the UN, they didn’t want it, but Alvar Hanso did. Hanso wanted to carry out research, good work based on the Valenzetti equation, and in exchange, Valenzetti donated it to us.

PT: No, he donated it to Alvar Hanso, we have no way of knowing if he gave us the real equation.

TM: Do I work for you Peter or do you work for me? Who cured your cancer? Tell me, I want to hear you say it.

PT: You did, Tom.

TM: Then this conversation is over.


  • Thomas Mittelwerk refers to Rachel and her followers as "the webgeeks".
  • The woman character is most likely Liddy Wales.
  • Mittelwerk doesn't elaborate on what Valenzetti 'exchanged' the equation for.
  • The audio mentions an Orientation film (later reviewed to be one featured in the [[Sri Lanka video).
  • It was Mittelwerk who personally cured Peter Thompson's cancer.
  • Peter expresses doubt that Alvar Hanso gave them the real equations. A split between Hanso and the people currently running the Foundation?
  • They talk as if the woman and Peter Thompson have never met Alvar Hanso and only Thomas has met him.
