Cicada 3301 for 2014 May Have Already Begun

Yesterday upon scouring search engines and TOR for more information about this mystery, I came upon a new potential clue. Utilizing chat logs, screenshots and other information found on the excellent Uncovering Cicada Wiki I performed a Google search with the words "Cicada" and "Craigslist" which led me to this posting on Craigslist's Portland Missed Encounters page that was apparently posted on Saturday. The following text was included in the posting:
When I enter a search for "Liber aL decoded" I am presented with the buzz on the mysterious "Cicada 3301" phenomena. Amusing and curious. I've only glossed over the material & challenges. High level crypto isn't my cup of tea, but that isn't what has me puzzled.
Liber aL broadened my understanding of information technologies: stereograms, steganography, and holography. It helped me in my pursuit of the divine language.
If you desire progress, enlightenment...or, revolutionary technology, I would suggest flexing your intellect in pursuit of the same.
Why a cicada? I'm partial to bees and spiders.
the(3)instar(6)emergence(9) <== I love triangles too.
A few things jumped out at me, first let me quote the last major Cicada clue that was found in an MP3 titled "The Instar Emergence" 
Parable 1,595,277,641
Like the instar, tunneling to the surface\n
We must shed our own circumferences;\n
Find the divinity within and emerge.
The Craigslist posting has many references to this and other previous Cicada clues including:

  1. The description clearly states "the instar emergence"
  2. Mentioning the "buzz" of the Cicada phenomena when the hidden parable was found within the "buzz" of the mp3 clue.
  3. The pursuit of the "divine language" and "Find the divinity" which seems to be a reference to the Divine Ratio, which is also necessary for Sierpinski Triangles.
  4. "Liber aL" or "The Book Of The Law" by Aleister Crowley that has been referenced in previous Cicada clues and is known to be written in code.
  5. "Shedding the circumferences" which could refer to both the snake found in the middle of the Sierpinski Triangle clue that is attached to the posting, one of the characters found in the same image and the fact that Sierpinski Triangles are known fractals and that this is only a Level 3 Sierpinski Triangle.
As the extent of my computer hardware is an iPad and my vacation is nearing a close, it's necessary that I hand this off to the community to further investigate and verify if this is in fact a Cicada clue with the public key. The little I did do on a relative's PC included using Hexplorer on both of the images and finding some interesting results. I don't want to go further into this until it is verified by someone in the community.

I am disappointed that I lack the hardware or free time to pursue this, thanks Detroit for having an interest in Mathematics and working in a field where I never get to exercise that part of my brain besides on vacation.

Is the goal of Cicada 3301 to achieve The Singularity?

The Cicada 3301 puzzle is clearly the most insane recruitment strategy ever created, but with all the speculation of what this mysterious group is recruiting for not one person has brought up what seems to be the most obvious conclusion based on the information we are led to believe is true.

My postulation is that the end goal of Cicada 3301 is to ensure at any cost that The Singularity is achieved to improve the world. There is no way I could do nearly as thorough of a job sifting through this data as those on the Uncovering Cicada Wiki, but the information we were provided about this mysterious group is as follows:
As it turned out, my opinions and my goals were very much in line with that organization: at the political level, I lean towards freedom, which is called at the time. I am well-educated in science, mathematics, and foreign policy. I was non-religious at the time in those first days. Philosophically, I agree with the ideas of Sartre and Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, and so I believe in random universe - one in humans that were not more than a coincidence. No absolute moral right and wrong. That the value of a man is what he does. I also believe that we can (and should) aspire to reach the next "level" - as individuals and mankind as a whole: Nietzsche "Übermensch". I didn’t know then, but this is one of the main focuses of the Cicada. They believe they possess wisdoms to transform human to Übermensch. Cicada give knowledge to members slowly as they progress up pyramid.
"Übermensch" is the death of god and the creation of new values and reaching the next "level" is using technology to enhance our physical being.

High School Yearbook Photos Of A Young Bruiser Brody

In the early 1960s one of the most famous wrestlers of the territorial era by the name of Bruiser Brody (AKA Frank Goodish) attended Warren High School in my hometown of Warren, Michigan. Brody was tragically murdered in Puerto Rico in 1988 and since then his legend has only grown. After some intense scouring I found some pictures in the 1961, 1962 and 1963 Warren High School Yearbooks of a young Bruiser Brody! I wanted to share these awesome pictures of probably the most famous person from Warren, Michigan until a young Marshall Mathers came along.

Misogyny, The Internet and Gaming

In the past few months there seems to be a lot of posts about the misogyny on various internet and gaming communities, while this isn't a subject that directly effects me, it is a subject that is fascinating. These posts are quite often by women and usually have the goal in mind of ending the misogynistic attitude some have to make the Internet a more pleasant place for women. The goal is insanely noble but I think people are asking the wrong question, the question that should be asked is why, and how can we change THAT.

Remember whenever talking about this that emotions run deep and quite often the worst characteristics of both genders can jump out to everyone, but the fact is that women are treated poorly all over the Internet. Unfortunately many of the theories and attitudes that some women have are just as cruel as the original comments made by men that made them feel uncomfortable. Also note that generalizations will be made and although they are not perfect, they are necessary for most dialogue on this subject, so please realize that.

Here are a few things that I am sharing from a male perspective on why it occurs besides the seemingly typical female response of "They are misogynistic because they were rejected by women" which is a cheap and cruel cop-out. There is more to it than that and unless you want to dig deeper, this problem will never get solved:

The Police Burned Chris Dorner Alive

Last night I listened to 4 hours of the only LAPD Scanner stream left on the internet, and what I heard was jarring and thankfully recordings made it on the net. The reason only one stream was left is because the police asked media to only use film from far away and used a 4G signal blocker while the building was strategically set on fire by "burners" mentioned in the below video. It's also of note that the building owner stated there was no Television or Internet connection in the house (which the police already knew), therefore what they stated to the media was a lie.....

Here is the video with the 5 minutes of audio as it's burning, with the way the mainstream media is avoiding this part of the may want to watch it quick:

Remember the most important thing to do is to make sure your mainstream news media knows about this and also that many people know. It's about time ruthless police departments who do anything to protect themselves get their justice, Dorner's methods were savage and wrong but let's make sure something good comes of this....which is the public outing of what justice really means within the city of Los Angeles and the State of California.

Music's New Generation Gap is Drastically DIfferent

The traditional view of older generations having different tastes of music than the younger is one that may just be dead. Sure there is the whole dubstep thing, but that seems more niche than anything else...

What I have noticed in the barely relevant mainstream music media is that authenticity means more than the quality of the music being produced. Two weeks ago on some Star Search ripoff show, a contestant stated she did "the country thing" and apparently offended Keith Urban who is self-identified as a country artist. After this Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson proceeded to provide that "veteran music industry advice" and grill this girl regarding if she's Country or something. Nicki Minaj was visually frustrated at this conversation as was anyone who is sane. This conversation could only exist with two people who are oblivious to the way people listen to music in 2013. Randy Jackson then went on about his 30 years of industry experience (NOT something to brag about) and Mariah ranted about some other nonsense that didn't matter. Before she walked off stage, Nicki made it quite clear that none of this advice was helpful at all to the girl and questioned why it was even given in the first place.
