Yesterday 17 may 2021, which was national day in Norway (celebrating the constitution making on Eidsvoll in 1814), I went up to Hütteldorf to buy a few things at Bauhaus again. On the return, approaching the station, I suddenly noticed a tree which I had to photograph and a closer study of it reveals that the angle of view shows the outlines of the chinese radical #131 which is called CHEN = 臣 and which means "a statesman, a subject, formerly used by civil officials for 'I'". This combines also well with the surroundings for LIN = 臨 and ZANG = 臧:

Looking up LIN = 臨 in Mathews under #4027 (on page 582), I find a number of contextual uses which remind me of the incident on the platform told on 4 may 2021, such as 'on the point of departure' or 'on the brink of danger':

The rest of the page could perhaps be consulted as well - and there is a special section for the idea of 'to copy, to imitate'. The ZANG = 藏 (Mathews #6704) means 'good, right, generous; a runaway male slave, husband of a slave; bribes etc'. Would 'bonus' count as 'bribes'? The idea of 'runaway male slave' could for modern times be suggestive of 'secret agent', and then the combination CHEN-FU = 臣服 = 'submit oneself to the rule of; acknowledge allegiance to' could be perhaps be even more suggestive:

I should add that it happened a few years ago I was up to the same Bauhaus and a man came up and went around me in a sort of 'loop' movement, or at least went quite close. I later speculated that he could have reminded me of my nephew Eivind Grøver Aukrust (whom I think I saw last when he was around 12). It happened down on the left of the big photo, could be rather right under or at least not far from the CHEN = 臣.

I am not an agent.

I add the story from my railjet train to Budapest some years ago - when a man came and put a guitar box on the luggage shelf above me and I thought I should move to another seat. The guitar box (not Starbucks!) could have reminded me of the one of the guitarist I met at Olav Skundberg's maybe 47 or 48 years ago - could be his name was Audun. I think he showed me the fist = 'neven' (with a protruded mid finger joint - not suitable for a 'blåveis' = 'shiner') in reference of some story he told. 's-Ol-lav skor pengr' could mean shoemaker Böhme's 'Aurora' = 'gry-lyse[t]' - in which case the name of his sister could be suggestive of a rewrite 'arre[t] er skorpen' = 'the scar is the crust [of the wound or the bread]'. ('Gro forever'?)

PS I do not think that the Skundbergs were involved in the intrigue, but they were names in my life, for which reason the names could have been used in the intrigue.

24 may 2021: The white spot inside the chinese CHEN sign at Hütteldorf is in fact a sign attached to the traffic sign much closer to the photographer. The incident on the platform told on 4 may 2021 was inside the station, on the platform, not outside such as here. The young man took my place, so to speak, on the platform. The idea of links to prince Philip - who had passed away nearly 100 years of age some time before this - could perhaps be due to the fact that the man on the platform slapped his hand on my lips (behind the mask). I notice that Bill Clinton was impeached for having had 'oral sex' with Monika Lewinsky in the copyroom to the White House. Covid-19 allegedly broke out in Wuhan in China, and I think I saw recently that the US republicans claimed that it was 99,99% certain that the virus had been made in a lab. The man on the platform reminded me a little of a classmate of mine from 1970-71 called William Moltzau - that is, how my classmate looked then. (He was not similar to prince Philip). I had no problems with William - but it happened once (probably in that same year or maybe a year or two later) I went past their house (which lay a few meters above street level) that he opened a window hinged in the upper frame, bent down under the upturned frame and started throwing eggs after me, so I had to hurry off the spot. It was surprising. (In those days there existed the oral expression 'flippa ut' - I dont know if anybody really understood the expression or if it could have been relevant for these stories). When I tried to photograph the man on the platform, I first photographed the clock on the platform, then I turned to photograph him but the camera battery went empty in the same moment as I lifted the camera. When I a couple of days ago lifted the camera to photograph the sign attached to the traffic sign, the same happened again - the camera battery went empty so I had to return the next day to get it. However, I had stored it in such a way that it is not impossible that it coincidentally could have been switched on for some time. It need not have been emptied by advanced 'ionic' technology, I would guess.

I notice also this 'Hütteldorfer' station (by the photo). The brief incident from the platform could perhaps be followed through the first four titles - 'rundskue' means '[to] look around', 'heimbygda' = 'the home town/village', 'vær hilset vår by' = 'be greeted, our town' and 'hilsen til Aalesund' = 'greeting to Aalesund'. It would be the latter which would correspond to the spontaneous shout I emitted after the light slap on the mouth. 'Barndoms by' = 'childhood's town'. 'Vigra' is the airport to Aalesund - I dont know if 'viagra' is a name associated with it. 'Gravid' = 'pregnant'. It is not impossible that the 13 titles in 'Sanger av Bjarne Eidsvig' could be read in parallel with the text on the sign outside the station if this be subjected to a similar movement 5 places rightwards of the onset of each word as I had done for the plaque outside Wiener Stadthalle on Roland Rainer Platz - which could lead to a rewrite somewhat along the following lines: "Iesesd rojekpt ird mw ahimern es lidmak:(a)ktiv (a)obil mörde(f)r(f)programms us itatemln es lidmak- nd neurgeie-onds fls eaitrbag um mwzelut- nd liumakschutz m erkievhr efördgert". 'Sjå bygda' spoons to 'på trygda' = 'on the benefit'. My words are not the ones of a 'hobby murderer' or anything the like. The biography of Wittgenstein tells that he quit his job as teacher on the day when he had given a schoolboy a box on the ear strong enough for the boy to lose consciousness - and it is said that he died 'some time later' but Wittgenstein's influential family managed to silence rumours and stories. Wittgenstein naturally did not want to talk about this. It is likely to be a lie which serves to make all PTRSIM PIKs have nearly the same biographies - filled with lies on murders and lots of perversities. I do not have such problems, and I did not murder the old mother Inger Johanne Apenes (she died in probably the night when Aldo Moro was murdered in Rome in 1978), and Wittgenstein probably did not murder the schoolboy either - but he may have quit on the day when his 'Wörterbuch für Volksschulen' was published with official accept stamp from the austrian ministry of education. After he had left the job as teacher, he had no job and no income but worked, tells the biography of Schulte, as gardener in the monasterial garden of some 'Barmherzige Brüder' in Hütteldorf. I notice the 'Barmherzige Brüder' that stood by the possibly dead or unconscious woman in Hütteldorfer Strasse. I notice the minister of finance Lutz Graf Schwerin von Krossigk - which could be suggestive of the idea that the apparently dead woman at the curbstone at the end of the zebras, on the corner to Wiener Stadthalle, could have been conceived as a sort of 'lapis philosophorum' - mainly salt (the woman, like Loth's wife) but also mercury (Adolf Hitler or Heinrich Himmler?) and 'incombustible sulphur' (Heinrich Himmler or Adolf Hitler?). I dont know if there were some 'Barmherzige Brüder' in Hütteldorf a hundred years ago - could be there was. I have to add that when I later crossed the zebras in Hütteldorfer Strasse, those at the park and not at the Stadthalle, I looked aside like I had done on 12 april when I believed that I had seen a woman resembling Böhme on the ground there (I do not believe it was her) - but now I had to admit that the distance was a little long. How could I believe that I could have recognized her? There is no doubt that I met the 'man-on-wagon', likewise in Hütteldorfer Strasse but almost half way up to the Hütteldorf itself, as he was crossing the street on a small wagon pulled by a boy. But later in the day I had to realize that such a small body - normal head but body like a bust down to the shoulders - could not have been in the real world. I concluded that it was an archetype I had met, although it appeared as very real and the man gave a sympathetic impression with a personal relation in the social interface. I cannot exclude the possibility that even this woman in the street of 12 april could have been such an 'archetype', although I took it for granted that somebody called for an ambulance and the authenticity of the event can probably be established thereby - by 'a strass and a car', so to speak. Likewise, I feel rather certain that the incident on the platform of Hütteldorfer Station did occur, but one becomes a little humbled after such a meeting as with the 'man-on-wagon' so I cannot perhaps know if this really happened either, but there is no doubt that I believed that it did.

I saw a photo of Nicolas Sarkozy on the front page of 'Paris Match' or something like that - he had 'painted himself' ('malt se[g]') with makeup. Trump was impeached twice - once for making inquiries about the presidential election in Ukraine (on the day of the bombings of Sri Lanka), and once due to assumed irregularities at the storming of Capitol Hill (cp. the 'bankado' with the woman on the zebras outside 'XXXLutz').

I hurried across the street on the other zebras. Combining some names from my story, one sees how it could be possible to construct the idea of Adolf Hitler as the new Christ. I certainly do not support any such programs.

There was some erection ('a penes'?) after the incident. There could have been landslides and other terror etc in preparation? Or it was simply my surrogate mother, if that were the story?

I add also that I in march had written an inquiry to Bürgerservice in Vienna about regulations on quarantine and tests in the context of border crossings - on the background that people travelling to Jungholz were freed of such restrictions. They did send an answer, but when the restrictions for entry from some countries with low infection rate were lifted now on 19 may, which of course was a good and welcomed initiative, I got another email from them with information on this in the evening 18 may. In fact I had just switched on the computer and looked over the 'inbox' and sat there watching it at 21:40 in the evening when the email came in - I saw it pushing the top mail one level down - but the time point annotated on the incoming email was 4:12 PM. It could mean that it had been delayed somewhere? The interesting reason there could have been for such a delay could have been in the body in the Hütteldorfer Strasse on 12/4 (that is, if there were a body there). Something similar happened some days later when I tried to click on an 'idagio' link which did not open but an SMS came in 'instead'. The computer later (for whatever reason) lost contact with peripherals and I had to reinstall Windows and then the SMS's were wiped out. I had clicked on an 'idagio' link before and that led to what felt like a total catastrophe (an avalanche of 'bisnis' around the world?) while it did not open - and when I later in the day tried to read an article in the norwegian newspaper 'Morgenbladet' about Finn Thiesen, the newspaper site collapsed completely - it took some time before they got on the screen again and had to refer the readers to their Facebook page. 'End-Morgenbladet', was that it?) There is an istrian (not austrian) restaurant down on the corner at the end of Zinckgasse, in the other end relative to this zebra at the corner to Wiener Stadthalle. Zinckgasse goes from this restaurant to this zebra. (I do not suspect neither 'idagio' nor 'Morgenbladet' of the 'bisnis').

Covid-19 has been a bad burden to many economies and I would guess that many families need housing. This problem, instead of people living in the streets, can be solved by the administrations building 'Hütteldorfs' with small housing units (cabins) they can sell to people who need it against 1 euro, and they can sell it back again for the same price if they later have got up on their feet again. There could, due to the pandemic, come to be a big need for Hütteldorfs. The cabins can be in long rows with a handful square metres garden in front and chicken wire fence towards street and neighbours. Solar energy on the roof. Would a cabin cost 2000 euros in (mass) construction? It is certainly better to build those than to welcome Hitler-Adolf again - in particular if he sails under the flag of the new Christ. But the cabins must be built for the needs of the people living there, not for the power. Proper insulation, secure walls, bus connection etc.

19 august 2021: An interesting observation it is to compare with the chinese sign JIA which means 1) asthma and 2) disease of the bowels:

20 august 2021: There seem possibly to be some confusion in the understanding of this sign. Smaller dictionaries do not have it. Here are the interpretations of Mathews and 'Das neue chinesisch-deutsche Wörterbuch':

3 october 2021:

The expression 'flippe ut' can be recognized to some degree in material from the 1960-70's. I point to some examples:

1) The british rock group 'WHO' made a film called 'Tommy' about a 'flipper' freak who could have been about a sort of PTRSIM PIK inspired by 'flipping' movements of something in the behind. The leading figure Roger Daltrey resembled somewhat Olav Skundberg (maybe I dont know why) while guitarist Pete Townsend has a name which could invoke associations to this complex. The Skundbergs could in the mythology mean the idea of me escaping the 'family background'. See also this file for the story of Gro Harlem Brundtland as later chief of 'WHO'.

2) This article tells that 'Dikt & Datt', the periodical wherein a poem written by PESJ and (allegedly) me had been printed, was established in the early 70's. (I remember we wrote it together - in probably 1974 - but it may be that PESJ had a firmer hand in the creation than I understood). Had the poem with the lines "høl i huet, / høl i gittarn, / høl i dass" been pre-prepared? 'La oss så-by Krist-endsen'? Today one can recognize also some allusions to the woman-on-the-ground in Hütteldorfer Strasse in some names. Cp. also the 'f-inger'. The article tells that the periodical was associated with or sprang out from the socalled 'Forsøksgym' (a high school experiment by Mosse Jørgensen's ideas), cp. 'forsøk sgym' = 'try sgym' - say, for a rescue? 'Forsøk sgym nase[t]'? An association of 'Forsøk sgym nase[t]' with 'flippe ut' would have been more informal.

3) On children's TV in the 1960-70's there was a series about a 'rescueing' dolphin called 'Flipper', also on international TV. Every now and then the telling names went out for rescueing people in danger etc. There was also a 'Skippy', and, in those days, lots of 'hipper' people ('hippies' etc).

4) In north-western Norway (Sunnmøre, I think) there is a small place called 'Ulsteinvik' with a local football team called 'Hødd'. They made a sensational climb to the top football league in the second half of the 1960's - untill 1972.
